== The public display of it all == Eventually, Jimbo Wales accepted that displaying such information is harmful to a person, especially where it mentions their real names, but also when the username that they used on Wikipedia was one that they used elsewhere. As such, Jimbo Wales has now decided to allow courtesy blanking, whereby the front page of arbitration cases may be hidden, and hence not appear in Google searches et al. Nonetheless, in many cases the arbitration case itself is slander, and is illegal. It is for this reason that most other places (for example [[Live Journal]]) refuse to allow such things to be visible by members of the public. Just the same, Wikipedia is unlike most places in allowing it.
