[[WP:AN]] currently contains this announcement:

"The userbox Template:User pedophile [...] is a great way of
identifying those users who consider themselves to be pedophiles. I
plan on indefinitely blocking any user who includes this template.
I've already blocked the only user to include this template [...]
Wikipedia has no obligation to permit deviants to edit. If a someone
has sexual thoughts about children, keep it to yourself and stay off
Wikipedia. I can't even imagine the PR nightmare that the Wikimedia
Foundation would face if articles were being written by
self-identified pedophiles."

I can just tell this one's going to be a fun argument to watch.
