Opposition[edit]

  • Oppose Strong oppose "Make world war 2 articles available only to an age specific audience that would understand the historical references". There should be no age restrictions on reading encyclopedic articles. You can't do this anyway, because Wikimedia doesn't collect information on the age of its users and editors. "and at the same time teach our most loyal most profitable and those who will never forget that the war is still on." I don't understand what you're trying to say here. "Whilst teaching our favorites and the 90 years young among us how to code here." Teaching elderly how to contribute might be a good idea, but it has nothing to do with harassment. --Doveofsymplegades (talk) 11:28, 9 June 2016 (UTC)

I’m not sure whether this place is intended for discussion but I have relevant answers.

>There should be no age restrictions on reading encyclopedic articles.
Early knowledge of truth warps the young mind and may scar it for life. We have age restrictions on sex precisely for this reason. Young people can’t think for themselves. Don’t question it, youngling.

OP probably means restriction on editing, not reading, though.

>>The war is still on.
>I don't understand what you're trying to say here.
Because you are not trying.
Hitler is dead but Nazism is not dead.
Nazism – or rather the state of mind which created that war.

>You can't do this anyway, because Wikimedia doesn't collect information on the age of its users and editors.
You aren’t patriotic enough if you think we can’t.

>Teaching elderly how to contribute might be a good idea, but it has nothing to do with harassment.
Education is empowerment. Empowerment is the best remedy to harassment.

  • Oppose Very strong oppose Wikipedia is a place where you can learn things about nearly everything, from non-relative, independent point. Nazism is a bad thing, I agree. But I always heard a reason for teaching history of nazism - to show children, how not to do.
