@Billinghurst: Thank you for taking the time! As an editor on Wikidata I spend most of my time editing music-related items and have found the blog in question to be a pretty good source of information on female pop singers of the 1960s. Ultimately my only objective here is being able to link to artist bios on the site when appropriate.

I'll link up my initial question for reference:

ready steady girls stopped by spam filter[edit]

(cross-posted from https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Wikidata:Project_chat and https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Talk:Global_AbuseFilter#ready_steady_girls_stopped_by_spam_filter )

I wonder if readysteadygirls.eu - a pretty good blog on European female 1960s pop singers imo - is stopped by the spam filter for actual abuse, or if it's caught by some "suspected porn" heuristic based on the domain name? Not a huge deal, but personally/anecdotally I've found this to be a well-kept and information dense website dedicated to female musicians.

Where do I go from here? Moebeus (talk) 11:23, 20 February 2019 (UTC)

The conversation belongs at talk:spam blacklist, to where you transferred it, and there I linked to the original request from 2008 for the blacklisting. A removal needs a rational argument about it being a reliable source, or at least the best quality source for the subject matter, or reasonable to be used at the Wikimedia wikis. Getting support of a community, or some contributors, is useful to develop a consensus. (The argument for use at Wikidata also needs to state that the solution of a local whitelisting will not be sufficient.) The argument for removal needs to also consider whether we were being link-spammed and it was reasonable to protect ourselves with a global blacklist, or whether it is still a pertinent defence today compared to the time of the blacklisting.  — billinghurst sDrewth 21:43, 20 February 2019 (UTC)
