S.49[edit]

FYI: I was just reading through the bill myself and here is § 203 (c):

Now, as far as (i), (iii), and (iv), everything is under control in WP. As far as (ii), it will be iffy as to the extent to which the "detailed personal information" part is construed. Yes, user pages can be made, but really, policy states that it's really meant to be just for the project and other people look down upon making the page into a blog-like atmosphere. And (v) is obviously there, but communication is to better the project, not to solicit other people's personal lives (although it could potentially be used to do that).

professor arrested because of a Wikipedia article[edit]

The Minneapolis StarTribune reported yesterday (Thursday the 22nd) that a visting professor at the University of Minnesota, Taner Akçam, was arrested when he entered Canada because of allegations against him in a Wikipedia article. I'll see if I can gather together the details. Michael Hardy 00:53, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

Here's the link---it was easier to find than I expected. Michael Hardy 00:55, 24 February 2007 (UTC)
Now that doesn't seem to be working. Try this one. Michael Hardy 00:59, 24 February 2007 (UTC)

That link no longer works, but instead points to an article on a different topic. Michael Hardy 22:44, 10 May 2007 (UTC)
