JohnNewton8, an administrator on french wikipedia, abused of his tools and rights. Here he blocked an IP for "personnal attack". This "personnal attack" was mentionning that 2 wikipedian were known for their usual transphobic behaviours, positions, and words. In facts it's not a personnal attack but a categorisation of what they say, how they act. We need to be able and free to point out the problematics contents and behaviours without beeing censored. Blocking someone for describing a discriminant behaviour is censorship and open the door to more discriminations, plus it protects haters and discriminant people. First JohnNewton8 need to give evidence and argumentation that it was a "personnal attack" (even if it's not). Second we need to stop this epidemic of transphobia on french wikipedia (see here for other exemples) Third we had to take action JohnNewton8 for his abuse of power. What he is doing isn't in the right path of the UCoC. It's not the first case of covering transphobia from the french wikipedia community. Look at this and this for more informations.
