Target of personal attack through violation of Username policy in Wikipedia and Wiktionary

In the Chinese Wikipedia, there were several blocked usernames which were insulting Zhou Ji as animals, such as 周济是乌龟 (Zhou Ji is a turtle), 周济是鸡 (Zhou Ji is a chicken), 周済是狗 (Zhou Ji is a dog), 周済是豬 (Zhou Ji is a pig), 周済是貓 (Zhou Ji is a cat), 周済是鸭 (Zhou Ji is a duck), etc. The Chinese Wikipedia logo The Chinese Wikipedia is the Chinese language edition of Wikipedia, run by the Wikimedia Foundation. ...


The similar case happened in the Chinese Wiktionary, such as ! 周济是螃蟹 ! (Zhou Ji is a crab), ! 周濟是螞蟻 ! (Zhou Ji is an ant), ! 周済是蟑螂 ! (Zhou Ji is a cockroach), and so on, mostly also found in the Chinese Wikipedia, but with exclamation mark (!) in front and behind.


Many zoophilists' feelings were hurt by these usernames. They complained that these usernames, comparing Zhou Ji to the cute and friendly animals, unfairly inflicted indignity and humiliation on the animals rather than on Zhou Ji himself. So they called upon people to stop insulting the animals by using these usernames.
