Oh boy, Jimbo again

Another frustrated middle class, middle aged american who has to use any means available to get to date a woman (see his adventures on other sites) yet he feels offended by nudity in any form. Is it possible to fire all personel from US and move the project to another continent? (talk)10:23, 1 July 2010

This irritates me. Wiki's are supposed to be "leaderless". It doesn't surprise me that since this Wiki does, abuses have occurred. It doesn't matter why he's in charge, as long as there is someone in charge then abuses will occur, and they will get worse over time as well. (talk)17:08, 4 July 2010

could an example of a deleted image(s) be included so that the reader could make an opinion between porn/art/info (talk)09:13, 30 June 2010

I like your idea. However, since Wikinews uses Wikimedia and Commons servers, contributors here have a conflict of interest in selecting examples, which as I understand, run the gamut of shocking, prurient, artistic and suggestive. A mixture of photographs, engravings, and paintings seem to have been under discussion. It is a shame that the interviewees did not describe specific examples. There were many that remain deleted and so are hard even to verifiably describe, and many that were deleted then restored during the conflict, so I wouldn't trust myself or any Wikinews user to make a representative selection. For that you will have to consult other sites.
