I have said, it is a matter of perspective how you view them. But if we go
by the assumption that editorial judgement is a separate thing, whose job
it to exercise it? WMF has long held the position that the project are
independent and it has not editorial control over what the community
decides- this would not be the case if we consider the filter an editorial
judgement. Keeping in mind the reaction that has been shown by different
communities, would it mean, WMF would be exercising that control? using an
already existing structure of categories created earlier, possibly by
editors who don't agree with the filter, to implement the said editorial
control? What about editorial independence?
Good point - I don't think WMF is trying to take editorial control. WMF is
trying to develop a software feature.
Yes, editorial independence is part of editorial judgement and editing. (Am
at Seoul airport, not slept all night, so pardon my fuzziness).
No, it is only being hidden.
Not being hidden for everyone - you hide if you want, I don't if I don't
Based on an arbitrary system of categories that
can be exploited.
Agree that there has been a good discussion on categorization, and the
issues related to this, both on this list and on meta - and
useful models proposed.
