Do Slashdot:

Editors on Wikipedia are engaged in an epic battle over a few piece of paper smeared with ink. The 10 inkblot images that form the classic Rorschach test have fallen into the public domain, and so including them on Wikipedia would seem to be a simple choice. However, some editors have cited the American Psychological Association’s statement that exposure of the images to the public is an unethical act, since prior exposure to the images could render them ineffective as a psychological test. Is the censorship of material appropriate, when the public exposure to that material may render it useless?

Dureza, essa.  Qual princípio privilegiar, o sagrado direito à informação ou a efetividade de um teste psicológico?

Mas eu pergunto, o quão efetivo é o teste de Rorschach?  Evidentemente, o direito à informação só deveria ser colocado em segundo lugar se o teste for altamente útil.  Algum psicólogo aí à mão?
