Due to many instances of the term being used in a hostile or sexual way, the shortcut m:Dick now directs to the essay m:Don't be a jerk. Effectively the shortcut 'dick' has been depreciated in favour of 'jerk'. Please keep in mind it is just an essay on meta, and it might be better to rely on COM:Mellow which has stronger links to Commons:Blocking policy with regard to maintaining a collegial atmosphere. Hope you don't mind me highlighting this shift in practices for you. Thanks --Fæ (talk) 13:28, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
- @Fæ: Given how I did not use the link in a hostile or sexual way, I do not see much of a problem with it. I was fully aware of the page rename. The argument "people can act like a dick/jerk because that page is just an essay" does not hold. Such people can and should be promptly stopped by any means necessary. Often simply asking people to be civil is sufficient. Some people decide to curse at you when you ask them to be civil and treatment of such behavior is well established. This is indeed certainly vital if we want to have a collegial and cordial community.
- I am quite puzzled why you would see a need to link me to COM:Mellow and Commons:Blocking policy since I do not remember enacting one since 2008. If you are implying I should block someone, you ought to me more clear on what this is about.
