I'm not suggesting that Ogrish be considered equivalent to
Memory Hole on a reliability continuum.  It is rather odd,
however, that somebody rather high up in the Wiki chain of
command removed a link to MH using reasoning similar to
that used to remove the Ogrish link.

Take, for example, that Ogrish will accept anything.  If
you go here:
You’ll see that you must submit and describe the content
for Ogrish to review.

Yes, it caters to a particular type of content. That,
however, is not a criticism made of business or medical
journals, so why here?  The Wall Street Journal is
considered an expert on business issues, yet it comes with
a significant ideological bias that can bias even basic
financial reporting.  Why not consider Ogrish an expert on
gore?  It's reasonable to say they have developed a
knowledge of what is and is not real when it comes to gore
submissions that Wikipedia and most other news/information
sources can not claim.
