Am I way of base with believing that
should just be left? Sources are nice, but if everyone agrees that the
information is correct, what is to be gained by removing it, or
bickering over the quality of the source?
This seems to ignore the observable fact
that, for some Wikipedians,
deletion of articles on popular culture, or in common parlance,
"cruft", is seen as an end in itself. The strategy being followed
seems to be to systematically raise the verifiability standards to
exclude online sources, then denude the article of such sources, then
move to delete the article on the grounds that it is unverifiable.
Another technique is to browbeat those with whom one disagrees,
repeating false claims that their opinion may be ignored.
In short, the deletion process continues to be a
disgrace and breed
the worst kind of incivility.
Even better some clowns^Wpeople are now suggesting that since they have
driven some webcomics off to Comixpedia, all the rest can safely follow
is a fine example.
I find the nominator's habit of jumping all over every single keep vote (bar
one AFAICT) rather offensive also.
