#SueMeSaudi and #SaudiArabiaIsISIS[edit]

These two hashtags typify the Streisand Effect. It would make a great addition to the wiki. "The hashtag #SueMeSaudi is soaring after a source at the Saudi Arabian justice ministry reportedly said he would sue a Twitter user who compared Saudi Arabia to the terror group 'Islamic State.'" http://www.dw.com/en/suemesaudi-twitter-users-taunt-saudi-arabia/a-18884389 Tim Riches, Mississauga, Ontario (talk) 19:15, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

No, they aren't an example of a Streisand Effect. That is just garden variety censorship. Resolute 21:48, 1 December 2015 (UTC)

By Individuals[edit]

I think the By Individuals section, would perhaps be better transformed into a England and Wales super-injunction section, focussing more on their use, than on specific Giggs event. Though perhaps this is not possible if direct "this is Streisand effect" refs are needed. Specifically as the injunctions prevent media discussion, which drastically limits the options for sources, if BLP sourcing guidelines are to be followed.Lacunae (talk) 20:27, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

By Businesses - not newspaper?[edit]

I added in a section on the recent Techdirt, Above the law and ABAjournal commentary on a subpeona issued by an American law firm against its anonymous former employees. The firm "supercharged" the negative reviews by making negative comments about the negative commentors. I think this is a reasonably notable addition, and I think that removing edits because they are "merely" additive borders on censorship itself. This does not seem to be an example of WP:Notnewspaper to me. I would appreciate comments from the group. (My writing can be tightened up a bit - it always can!) Thank you in advance for your comments. Saltwolf (talk) 01:38, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

I added in a sentence and citation to a legal commentator's statement that this lawsuit may create a "Layfield and Barrett" effect regarding the specific chilling of speech on job review posting boards. I think this is a very notable development and would like to see it stick on the page. Thanks much. Saltwolf (talk) 02:19, 23 May 2016 (UTC)

Elton John and David Furnish[edit]

Re this edit: the revert has nothing to do with legal reasons. Neither the National Post nor the Sunday Mail says "this is an example of the Streisand effect" so this is an example of WP:OR, which says "Articles may not contain any new analysis or synthesis of published material that serves to reach or imply a conclusion not clearly stated by the sources themselves." Past consensus on this article is not to introduce new examples unless the source uses the phrase "Streisand effect" by name. As for the identities of the people in the saga of PJS v News Group Newspapers, so far only the National Enquirer has printed the full story and given the names of the people (allegedly) involved in promoting the use of olive oil. All of the other sources are quoting what the NE said. As for the specific link given in the citation with the URL http://news.nationalpost.com/news/world/why-the-english-media-could-go-to-jail-for-reporting-on-the-olive-oil-trysts-of-elton-johns-husband , it looks like this has gone for a walk from the National Post website due to some assiduous behaviour somewhere along the line. This isn't as easy to cite as it first looks.--♦IanMacM♦ (talk to me) 20:04, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

  • Delete all reference to the "unnamed couple" and their incident. The edit in question just seemed to be about identifying EJ and DF, but as the cited article says, "As British sources have noted, the consensual proclivities of David Furnish are generally of little interest to the mainstream British public." The context is about British superinjunctions (see previous paragraph and first sentence of subject paragraph "A similar situation involving super-injunctions in England and Wales have occurred, involving Jeremy Clarkson"), but the article points out it is not a superinjunction but just an injunction. I don't see this incident as a good example of the SE. EJ & DF were just pursuing their privacy under British law; they were not trying to stomp on some lowly coastal photographer or innocent 8th grader. Glrx (talk) 21:22, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
