Censorship issue[edit]

The recent issues on Wikimedia bring to mind interesting questions, such as are stories like this glorifying rape? If so, is it okay to possess such media? Presumably if standards for obscenity or detracting from providing for information can be applied to an image, they could also be applied to written works. While they may lack the instantaneous shock value of images, it does stand to reason that just as some people do not want the archives to be filled up as some kind of porn gallery, they would similarly not want it to be some kind of 'Literotica' knockoff either. As I am sure the person who uploaded felt it was noteworthy and educational, it is my hopes that the notability can be established for this work to prevent deletionist attacks in the future trying to wipe it out.

Wikisource does not consider subjective qualities like "notability", but rather clearer criteria such as having been previously published with editorial review. The publication of this text seems to be well established by the Wikipedia article. You can review our inclution criteria at WS:WWI.--BirgitteSB 16:23, 14 May 2010 (UTC)
