Project idea[edit]

What is the problem you're trying to solve?[edit]

While blocking is a quick fix. The person(s) violation protocals as defined by the owner of the site ( in this case Wikimedia. org ). Only need to create a new identity and web ID to continue their actions.

What is your solution?[edit]

It would be better to expose those person(s) to the community for what they are doing. Then hide behindfilter and blocking software. Bulling activities are carried out anonymously . By changing this and identifying the bully and exposing their actions to all the other readers you in

  • allow the offensive post to remain but in a unique color differentiate it from the main article fact expose the person for what they are most likely they will cease their activities and look elsewhere.

Action(s) to take:

• ID the perpetrator by name and location ID.

• Leave the offensive material up. Allowing it to remain. However remain it's posting in unique color identifying it for what it is.

• Remove their Anonymous veil .

• be vigilant in enforcing your rules
