Domain squatter dangers being facilitated by this and other wikis
External links such as [http://www.nupedia.com Nupedia] have an inherent danger: when the domain changes ownership, a user clicking the link is taken unsuspecting to a site controlled by the new owner. This creates a whole class of user vulnerabilities to malware. Leaving these stale links in place, as at Help:Wikitext examples both facilitates these attacks and encourages the domainjackers. Apparently the blacklist process is inappropriate for dealing with these, as explained at this diff, but a process is evidently needed to detect and disable such stale links. Ideally that process should function for all wikis, at least those that want it.LeadSongDog (talk) 14:12, 2 May 2018 (UTC)

- Bengali Wikibooks is already an existing project. (Link: b:bn:)
- The appropriate place for a project to disseminate the writings of existing writers would be Wikisource, not Wikibooks.
- Bengali Wikisource is also already an existing project. (Link: s:bn:)
You are free to contribute to either of those projects if you would like. Please be careful, though: If any of these writers' works are still under copyright, you cannot put them on Wikisource.
