Easier to just ignore it (if it meets our liberal criteria for
notability) than to try and sort it out. Purging it would take more
energy, and create more problems, than just letting it coexist.
There's no workable way to do it, and the benefits of doing so seem
dubious at best.

I'm simply setting forth one principle for determining what crap is.  Besides, the real point of my recommendation in this context regarding pop-culture items (Pokemon, pop-stars, etc.) is to give them a holding place outside the encyclopedia itself that is still part of Wiki until we have better knowledge about where on the crap continuum they belong.  I'm not recommending a flush, simply a split, and anything can be moved back to the encyclopedia and is of course still accessible and editable like any other Wiki content.~~~~Pro-Lick
