NOTES on non obvious benefits of Discourse *(to WM) **((not a competition!))

#1 no (causally) blocked IP ranges that prevent or complicate editing and participation

I just started to travel and realized my next days might be a misery for Wikimedia work *(yes I did bring laptop with me) as public WiFi seem to have been often in blocked IP ranges :-/

#2 linking to the external websites without being bashed / accused of spam or promotion

#3 adding media that is not licence restricted by commons policies and/or workflows
