mistrust misuse and abuse of the authority to exploite, minorities. Women with..RH'- blood (vessel's )[edit]

Who gives anyone the right to exploit others who are different by race, color, or sex!!! But to learn that our own government is exploiting Rh Negitive blood types is morally wrong and unethical. What can i do to stop this kind of exploiting. Is this abuse.of the law? —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Las law (talkcontribs) 16:28, 20 November 2017‎ (UTC)

Well, here on Wikinews we seek to encourage a fact-based worldview, learning about reality by looking for facts first to provide a foundation of understanding on which to later form opinions. That's one way to start: providing a foundation on which to build. --Pi zero (talk) 16:41, 20 November 2017 (UTC)

Discussion on en.wp[edit]

See w:en:Wikipedia:Village_pump_(proposals)#RfC:_Add_a_link_to_Wikinews_on_the_Main_Page. —Justin (koavf)TCM 08:22, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

At a quick glance, that thread looks to contain about the mishmash of good faith, bad faith, truth and falsehoods, misapprehensions about news and Wikinews, etc. I would expect from Wikipedia. For a Wikinewsie (certainly this Wikinewsie) to get involved in it would seem to be an unsupportable time sink. But it's interesting to know about; thank you, Koavf, for mentioning it here. --Pi zero (talk) 13:34, 28 November 2017 (UTC)

Invitation to Blocking tools consultation[edit]

Hello all,

The Wikimedia Foundation's Anti-Harassment Tools team invites all Wikimedians to discuss new blocking tools and improvements to existing blocking tools in December 2017 for development work in early 2018.

How can you help?

  1. Share your ideas on the discussion page or send an email to the Anti-Harassment Tools team.
  2. Spread the word that the consultation is happening; this is an important discussion for making decisions about improving the blocking tools.
  3. Help with translation.
  4. If you know of previous discussions about blocking tools that happened on your wiki, share the links.

We are looking forward to learning your ideas.
