Is this a wikimedia wide policy?[edit]

Is this policy one of the wikimedia wide ones? Is it possible for a wiki to dispense from the "no legal threats"-policy if that is local consensus there?·maunus · snunɐɯ· 20:38, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

I don't see anything that indicates this is a Wikimedia policy. This as far as I can see is an English Wikipedia policy. If a different language Wikipedia does not have this policy, I think that is up to that community. ~ GB fan 22:36, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
I do not know of any NLT policy on WMF-wide projects. Recent WMF initiatives are aimed at preventing harassment, and NLT can be a very pointy form of harassment. Something should be done to get NLT and HARASS promoted to WMF-wide policies because I have seen very severe harassment of mainly enwiki editors on other projects, including full outing of personal details. One very unfortunate WMF initiative is at WP:Wikimedia Strategy 2017, and a more reality based initiative is at WP:Community health initiative on English Wikipedia, although the lack of responses on the talk page would suggest that communication with the community will be one way.
