Reason for reporting: Attention! Pls help us. Request from the organizers of the WikiConf 2021 Wikimedia RU together with Wikimedia France: massive vandalism at Wikimedia Commons for the project https://lingualibre.org/. Please delete all files for September 19, 2021. And block the vandal. —

Niklitov (talk) 03:38, 20 September 2021 (UTC)

It is not vandalism, Russian Wiktionary needs all these files and uses it. You must follow COM:AGF.--Cinemantique (talk) 06:38, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
Sorry, Cinemantique, for a cultural project LinguaLibre, this is vandalism. In Russian Wiktionary too. Best, — Niklitov (talk) 09:01, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
@Niklitov: No, you're wrong. In Wiktionary all real words and phrases can be described. And pronounced.--Cinemantique (talk) 09:15, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
 Not done. At moment all the files are in used and therefore cannot be deleted on that reason. You must complain in Russian wiktionary. After the files are not used anymore, please come back. Taivo (talk) 10:49, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
I want to step into this discussion because I'm “the vandal.” There are two parts to my response: personal and general. While I understand that the personal part is not that important for the Wikimedia community, the accusation of vandalism, and especially of being “the vandal” person, is offensive for me and harms the spirit of the community. (1) I'm not using profanity words in my speech, as it's written in my Russian Wiktionary profile, and I'm against its usage in the speech of other people. Moreover, I've even developed a profanity filter library for Python (here is the proof: https://github.com/rominf/profanity-filter; it's also in the first results in Google by queries like “profanity filter Python”). Also, I've spent more than 800 euros to prepare my room and hours of practicing (including lessons of voice acting) for a semi-professional voice recording (including but not limited to poetry on Russian Wikisource, and more than 1.5 thousand phrases for Russian Wiktionary). Do I look like “the vandal” still? (2) Russian Wiktionary rules clearly states that Wiktionary includes all the words, including the profane ones. Also, having some expertise, gained while developing the profanity filter library, I understood, that it's a very complex topic, you cannot draw a clear boundary between what is profane and what is not. For example, the very normal originally word “козёл” (goat), basically lost its original meaning in common speech (at least from what I hear in the speech of ordinary people), because of urbanization and the fact that we rarely see them in real life in the cities. But, it gained another, quite offensive meaning. Should we ban this word? I doubt so. Profanity is a large part of human speech, and projects like Wiktionary try to describe it fully, whether it's pleasant for somebody or not. And yet another argument probably exaggerated one, but relevant nevertheless, since you wrote about “LinguaLibre” of being a cultural project. Do you consider Alexander Pushkin as a cultural person? I think nobody will argue about his influence on the Russian culture. And he used profane words, including the most “dirty” ones. According to your logic, schools should ban Pushkin, as being “the vandal”, which would be a disaster for all the educational system. Thanks for the attention. — Rominf (talk) 11:25, 20 September 2021 (UTC)
