On a related note, [[User:Bhadani]] has been agitating to enforce his 
own interpretation of the laws of India, supposedly banning certain 
separatist political statements, against [[User:Anwar saadat]].  He 
seems to be convinced the Indian government will ban Wikipedia if it 
does not act to suppress such statements if the people making them 
might possibly be Indian citizens, and he is prepared to take 
vigilante action to enforce this view of the law by deleting things 
from user pages of others.

What *is* it about people lately thinking that Wikipedia, and its 
editors, need to be law enforcement officials with regard to whatever 
oppressively anti-free-speech laws exist in different countries?
