I was looking over old discussions, and wondered: who originally came
up with the notion that the "principle of least surprise" should apply
to educational content? If it existed before Wikimedia, who introduced
it to the image filter discussion, on what rationale?

[Personally I think it's an inanity - an education that doesn't turn
your head upside down might as well be basket weaving - and it's too
easily applied to shocking and outrageous concepts that children
shouldn't be exposed to, like homosexuality or rights for minorities -
but I could of course be convinced I'm wrong.]
