I find it interesting that a Google search for the quoted phrase, "most common in equine pornography where it's easier and safer" returns only one result: the UCSC Wikipedia Trust Project. But if you follow their link, the result is a page that obviously has been oversighted by the staff of the UCSC project. Apparently, FT2 has "connections" to get this sort of under-the-rug-sweeping accomplished. That won't happen here at MyWikiBiz, short of a court-ordered notice. -- MyWikiBiz 10:25, 26 November 2008 (PST)

Hi thanks - can we make this public? Ockham 04:54, 27 November 2008 (PST)
By "public", you mean?
  • Publicize this situation to the mainstream media?
  • Convert this page to an "open" all-users-may-edit document? (Note: just copy it to Main Space.)
  • Allow this page to be crawled by search engine spiders? (Note: it already is.)
Looking forward to your response. -- MyWikiBiz 05:59, 27 November 2008 (PST)
The first - but Wikipedia Review was what I had in mind, not really mainstream. However the link appears to have failed. I'll leave it to your judgment, Greg! Best Ockham 14:19, 27 November 2008 (PST)
By the way, it is being identified by the NetSense things as porn - interesting. Are you sure it's Ok to have it on your website? Ockham 14:19, 27 November 2008 (PST)
If it was good enough for the University of California at Santa Cruz to have on their website, how could I possibly be concerned about it on my site? The only thing I think I would ask you to do, though, is to write perhaps an introductory lead-in explaining something to the effect of: "The following content was initially published on DATE on WIKIPEDIA by FT2. The content was later oversighted by an administrator who possessed the tools to make uncomfortable edits 'disappear' from public view. In fact, there is a Google cache that..." You get my drift.
It stinks that the page is getting blocked by WebSense (that's what you meant, right?), but keep in mind -- I'd guess that only about 5% of Internet sessions at any given time are filtered by content blockers. -- MyWikiBiz 19:15, 27 November 2008 (PST)
Yes, that's what I meant. What is the USCS project? Ockham 05:24, 29 November 2008 (PST)
It was that effort to "colorize" Wikipedia according to how much you could "trust" the content, on the basis of how long it remained unchanged in the wiki. (A fairly lousy measure of trustworthiness of content. Rather, it measures lack of interest and/or deviousness of vandalism.) Here is the link to the project. -- MyWikiBiz 05:52, 29 November 2008 (PST)
PS I have contacted another medievalist who is into bringing 'virgin' content onto the web i.e. old out of copyright Latin editions. I'm trying to interest him in the idea of Wikis. Ockham 05:24, 29 November 2008 (PST)
