It seems like all this pop-culture stuff (which also includes the likes of the Britneys of the world and wrestling entertainment) could be dumped, umm, I mean reorganized, into another wiki project, such as Mediapedia, Wikipop, or WikiStuffNobodyWillCareAbout100YearsFromNow.  I think it would be better, for both groups to have admins dealing with the type of content they are dedicated to and interested in.  I see a lot of inactive admins and it would be interesting to see how many have decided to take an indefinite leave of absence because they spend 90% of their time dealing with content and user disputes involving articles they have no interest in.~~~~Pro-Lick

I have no interest in either 18th century philosophers or pop culture.
Admins can steer clear of stuff that doesn't interest them if they
want to.
The pop culture section appears to be one of our most popular so it
stays. Other than the copyvios there I can ignore it for the most
