Nudity on Wikipedia

Some weeks ago, there was a discussion about pictures showing porn content on the Wikipedia. This was started by a online report from an american newspaper. After that, the founder of Wikipedia Jimbo Wales, has start a deleting action on and has remove few houndreds of pictures used for illustration in the article. This has been done without a community consensus and after that, the community acted with an petition and proposal for removing of founder rights on all projects. As result, Jimbo has made a "step backwards" and requested removing of those "technical rights" as he don´t need them anymore.

Petition to Jimbo

His action was against all rules of Wikipedia, his own dream and creation.
