Welcome to Meta![edit]

Hello Thenub314, and welcome to the Wikimedia Meta-Wiki! This website is for coordinating and discussing all Wikimedia projects. You may find it useful to read our policy page. If you are interested in doing translations, visit Meta:Babylon. You can also leave a note on Meta:Babel or Wikimedia Forum (please read the instructions at the top of the page before posting there). If you would like, feel free to ask me questions on my talk page. Happy editing! Ottava Rima (talk) 14:05, 26 April 2010 (UTC)

Why thank you for the hello. I was having an argument about copyright at wikibooks and I thought it would be nice to reread the easy's/discussions. I was never quite sure how meta fit into the whole scheme of things, and not sure what work needs to be done here. But if I find something that needs editing I certainly will.

Why Moulton has not requested an unblock on Wikiversity[edit]

Thenub314, I found the passage you were looking for. It's in WV:RCA, posted there in response to James Neill...

  • James, for the record, I've never asked to be unblocked. There are several reasons for this, some of which are subtle and not at all obvious to those who have not had long conversations with me. Here on WV, perhaps three or four people who know me reasonably well could faithfully articulate my reasons. I don't oppose a discussion about unblocking, and I am more than happy to participate in it, but not because I am seeking to be unblocked. To this day my objectives remain as I posted them on my user page three years ago — namely to promote accuracy, excellence, and ethics in online media. I can do that whether I am unblocked or not. Indeed some of my objectives are best served by creatively engaging in civil disobedience when I am subject to an out-of-process block or comparable Bill of Attainder. To my mind, these are worthwhile and timely learning projects that, happenstantially, tend to be most commonly introduced via liminal social drama (rather than via dull classroom lecture materials). JWS, PM, SBJ, Greg, and I have somewhat overlapping ideas on these issues, given that we've all been subject to Monarchial Bill of Attainder (out-of-process blocks by Jimbo Wales) and comparable shenanigans and machinations when Jimbo threatened to shut down Wikiversity if the Custodians did not do his bidding. He got away with it two years ago. Last March it backfired on him, and now the time has come for Truth and Reconciliation. —Moulton 02:09, 21 July 2010 (UTC)

Hope this helps.
