The following links about grants are from reader “Said on Wikipediocracy”, and were split off from the Zoe Quinn thread:
The WMF is currently soliciting funding proposals to address on-wiki harassment in the IdeaLabs Inspire Addressing Harassment campaign. https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Grants:IdeaLab/Inspire/FAQ&oldid=15674787
WMF staffer: “some of the IdeaLabs are being used to belittle this [harassment ], and [I] am working over the weekend to keep at least the worst instances of abuse and hate-speech off of the pages :(” https://lists.wikimedia.org/pipermail/wikimedia-l/2016-June/084364.html
WMF staffer: “quite a few people are drawn to these conversations by external canvassing on sites that politically oppose some of the issues Idea Lab is intended to confront. (Sadly, this happens. We know of several such cases of canvassing for trolling related to the current campaign.)” https://meta.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Meta:Requests_for_help_from_a_sysop_or_bureaucrat&diff=15697817&oldid=15697757
Kohs, the owner of the Wikipediocracy domain, submitted a funding request from the Inspire campaign, but ignored a sociologist’s suggestions for making the research more useful. Kohs chose a troll as his proposal’s avatar. https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Inspire https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Grants:IdeaLab/Impacts_on_lives_of_the_banned
On Wikipediocracy Kohs raised concerns that another Inspire campaign proposal may have been made by a phony black, trans, queer Wikipedian. That Wikipedian is no fake and has been harassed. Wikipediocracy regulars didn’t miss a beat before lamenting that Wikipedia is overly pro-LGBT. http://wikipediocracy(dot)com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=7806#p187407
