Vigilance !
After the Wikimedia/Wales/FoxNews "porn purge" affair, I'm vigilant towards possible drifts, notably in terms of abuse of power from Jimbo Wales and/or admins, but also in terms of extreme censorship and/or puritanism against sex illustrations and nude pictures. That said, I agree that these topics have to be treated with caution (especially in terms of copyright and personality rights).

Some thoughts about Commons and WikimediaEdit

  • Unused doesn't mean useless. Commons is not only made for illustrating Wikimedia projects but also for providing various pictures on the subjects developped on Wikimedia projects. How useful would it be to mention a link to Commons on a Wikipedia article if the reader only finds the files used in the article ?!

This edit made my day [1] :-D. I truly appreciate you helping to categorize nudes and sexually provocative images so that people can find images specific to their search without being exposed to images that they would not anticipate. FloNight♥♥♥ 15:20, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
