Image:Fairy exhibitionist.jpg

It's really best not to label people in image titles or captions like that, unless you know for certain that that person accepts the label (or is a paid model assuming a role who has signed a model release). Do you know for certain that the person in the photo would not object to being labelled an "exhibitionist" on the Internet? AnonMoos 07:12, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

Sigh. next you'll be telling me that I shouldn't label a picture of a man in a tutu as a cross-dresser!--Markova 20:53, 16 April 2012 (UTC)
If a man wears what is commonly considered women's-only clothing, then he is objectively cross-dressing. However, "exhibitionist" is a diagnosis of a psychological syndrome, and does not necessarily directly follow just because someone wears a certain type of clothing. We should leave the psychological diagnoses to the psychologists when it comes to image titles/captions... AnonMoos 07:03, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
In everyday English, such as I speak, an exhibitionist is someone who behaves so as to attract attention to him/herself. There is no reason whatsoever to insist on a narrow technical meaning of the term, a meaning I was not aware of until today. However, I am changing the photo caption if that makes you happier.--Markova 11:33, 18 April 2012 (UTC)
It's really not just me being pedantic about the definitions of words; what is much much more important is that you don't know whether or not the woman in photograph would object to being publicly labelled as suffering from a psychological syndrome. If we can avoid this issue by tinkering a little with the wording, then that would be greatly preferable. This Wiki doesn't have image-rename functionality, or I would rename the image...

Why doesn't Markova re-load under a different name like "Woman in fairy costume"? Then AnonMoos can delete the first version.--Speedoslover 07:02, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
OK, done. Now can we please get back to something useful?--Markova 17:45, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
OK, deleted.--Ropeuser 12:31, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Deleted stories

Sorry you're upset, but Balzac was trying to do the legally/moral right thing, even if he wasn't aware of all relevant facts. This is a low-volume Wiki, so it's highly likely that it will take a while to resolve the issue, and Balzac is the final authority here (controls the machine), so issuing hasty ultimatums doesn't really serve any very useful purpose...

It's unfortunate that you're miffed, but you might save wear and tear on your emotions if you could attempt to see things from another's point of view -- Balzac was not trying to impugn your integrity, but trying to protect this site by removing copyrightable text which appeared both on this website and some other website without clear explanation of the fact (where the other site doesn't state a GFDL license, where it wasn't clear that the other site copied from this site, etc.). The end result was certainly problematic in some respects, but if you can temper your patience to the slow pace at which things generally happen around here, I'm sure such problems could be resolved in the end...
