Talk:Demonstrations planned to protest internet censorship in Finland

Active discussions

This page needs a better title, but I do not have the rights to move it, so I'm kindly asking someone else to do it. Suggestions for a headline: "Finnish Internet filtering controversy continues", "Demonstration to be held against Finnish Internet filtering", something like that maybe.

Is that better? I know I flagged the article for a POV title too. Chris Mann (Say hi!|Stalk me!) 00:28, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


This article seems to be written from the point-of-view of the protesters and does little to provide the gov't pov. Secondary notes: Why is the Computer World article in "external links" and not in sources? Why are Finnish sources separated into their own section? --SVTCobra 01:53, 4 March 2008 (UTC)

About NPOV; yes and no. Situation is kind of that the supporters of censorship tried to silence discussion to death, so there isn't that much another point of views than protesters which are provoking the discussion. Only people who are being defending the filtering are NBI representative and Suvi Linden and both points are covered in article. Actually other ministers (like interrior minister and minister of law declined to comment anything to press) In couple last days the Finlands mainstream media covered pretty widely the protesters point of view so Gov representative have to respond to critic but it doesn't have happened yet. I expect that it will be on the press today, tomorrow or something like that. IT-media which are covering what is happened is generally sided with the protesters because they wants answers from goverment too.
About the links, i was just so sleepy when i wrote first version so i generally sucked with them. So no reason. --Zache - (talk) 03:48, 4 March 2008 (UTC)


Quote from the article...

After stating that she will not tolerate discussion criticizing the filtering system, as the situation is not a matter of freedom of speech, a petition was signed by over 12,000 people demanding her resignation.

Should the not a matter of freedom of speech actually be in quotes rather that italics? If it's not a direct quote, I'm assuming it's a paraphrase of what the lady being written about said, and this should be more clear. If it is a direct quote, then it should be put in quotes.
