When comparing English WP:BLP and German WP:BLP I stumbled upon a significant difference. While living persons in English Wikipedia are equal, German Wikipedia holds that dignity, and trustable contend are only expected in article namespace. Gossip and libel are freely allowed in user namespace.

I asked myself, whether this implementation of the above resolutions is, what the board intend it for.

Now I ask You:

  1. Aren't equality and humanity basic human rights? And shouldn't they are enforced everywhere in Wikipedia?
  2. Why has Wikipedia no binding declaration on basic human rights?
  3. What will You do to protect the dignity of living persons in German Wikipedia? Will You change WP:BLP – German?
