Seeking clarification re meta NPOV[edit]

Can someone with a meta perspective and knowledge of the history of meta NPOV kindly respond to my q posted here? tia, Humanengr (talk) 04:32, 1 April 2018 (UTC)

At a meta level, all of the content on Wikimedia sites should be written from a neutral point of view. There's some debate whether that applies to the Foundation taking political action, with some arguing that it violates NPOV if we as an organization take a side, while others argue that we need to ensure our own survival. As to why only specific projects are listed on the page, it's only projects with a formal NPOV policy. Not all have/need one. (And the page is somewhat confusing in that it says Wikibooks etc as if all language versions have the same policy, and some don't). – Ajraddatz (talk) 05:14, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Thx. What’s also confusing is that for those projects that “have a strict NPOV policy”, does that mean they essentially adhere to the ‘original formulation’? Any insight would help. Humanengr (talk) 05:58, 1 April 2018 (UTC)
Not sure, and it's not really important to break down the wording here. The NPOV page isn't a policy page. If it isn't clear, you can edit it to make it more clear. – Ajraddatz (talk) 00:27, 2 April 2018 (UTC)

AbuseFilter False Positive[edit]

Not exactly sure where else to place this on Meta, but for some reason, I got hit by an AbuseFilter for placing this warning on an anon's talk page. Seems kind of odd. OhKayeSierra (talk) 06:23, 24 April 2018 (UTC)

@OhKayeSierra: don't worry about it. For note, it wasn't for placing the warning, it was for you attempting to "remove it" when you were trying to correct it. — xaosflux Talk 13:15, 24 April 2018 (UTC)
