Did you see what Jimmy deleted? For example, Franz von Bayros painting
. That guy is not so famous, but I don't see anymore any sane rule,
except: What Jimmy's sexually impaired super rich friend wish, Jimmy
do and then Board transform into the rule or a statement.
Besides the fact that he was dealing just with Western taboos of naked
body and sexual act, not with Mohamed cartoons  at English
Wikipedia, where he is the God King.
If the Board stays behind such action, this is a very clear signal
that Wikimedia projects are becoming censored. And if Jyllands-Posten
Muhammad cartoons won't be deleted, then Wikimedia projects are a tool
of Western cultural imperialism.
I want to hear other Board members before making my decision about staying here.

that one, which is inside of the article)
