Seriously.....see the entry called Everyone say, "Xenu!" at this link
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming 'WOO HOO what a ride'

Despite the fact I've called this guy a rude word on twitter, I would suggest not getting personal on this thread.

Yep. As expected. I know why I left Wikipedia. It's ruled by trolls now.

By Geb's beard! Dunjonquest (Series) is a "KEEP". Thanks to whoever contributed to the references and the deletion debate - good things can happen on Wikipedia! :P (perhaps when PPOT plays at the Super Bowl halftime show they'll allow the band as well)

The result was keep. King of ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠ �1�18 August 2010 (UTC)

I was going through some old stuff I'd recorded, and found this skit I made three years ago. I think it might fit the mood of this thread. :)

Now, I'm not that knowledgeable in the workings of Wikipedia, but what's stopping any of us to simply add the PPOT article again?

Good stuff that, Makke :) It reminds me of the Mitchell and Webb "Sky Sports" sketch on their show.

I think the comedian Lenny Henry has it spot on about Wrongopedia, though. Check around 4:45:

It'll just get deleted again, most probably very promptly due to the dilligence of those who keep wikipedia pure and accurate (and notable).

Perhaps a middle finger from the Commodore community suffices???

Has anyone suggested doing it like the band "cKy" has done it?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CKY_(band)

They stylize it as cKy, and this is mentioned in the first line of the article, even though the article title is "CKY".
