I think this page should be deleted as it serves no purpose what so ever. I have put a vote up so we can vote on the issue. Please attach your signature and a # to whichever one you wish to vote for. Dvergne 05:41, 29 April 2013 (EDT)

Keep

  1. I voted to keep this article, but my vote was removed for alleged "trolling". So I will restate my case in a less snarky manner. I don't see anything wrong with a bit of levity as long as it is clearly marked as an essay and is not masquerading as a genuine article. Though I don't find User:Conservative's work to be funny in the slightest bit, that's not reason enough for deletion. --DonnyC 23:27, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. People who stumble upon this place should be able to see exactly the kind of site this is. These sorts of articles should be linked to from the mainpage so nobody is under any illusions about the quality of the discourse. We have to reach rock bottom before we can improve as a site. --DamianJohn 05:57, 4 May 2013 (EDT)

Delete

  1. -because its childish humour. KBeer 18:46, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. I agree with KBeer but would leave out the word "humour". AlanE 18:58, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
  3. Childish and also factually incorrect (Mother's Day, Father's Day, 4th of July, etc.) GregG 20:07, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
  4. Agree with Kbeer et.al. Dvergne 23:44, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

Wait and See

  1. --DTSavage 20:24, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
  2. at the risk of banning, I'm learning toward deletion but my strong belief in the freedom of speech is holding me back... On a (semi) related note, Conservative please unlock the page Penn Jillette so I can bring the facts up to date. Fnarrow 03:09, 4 May 2013 (EDT)


Other Thoughts

  1. I'm not sure why this particular article was singled out for deletion. The "tumbleweed gag" is a staple of internet forum and wiki communities. If it is decided that this article should be deleted for being "childish", then the following articles should be deleted as well:

The article was singled out because atheists do not like the fact that much of the world sees them as angry sourpusses. Conservative 09:14, 4 May 2013 (EDT)
I think a lot of the articles titled atheism and ...., homosexuality and ....., bestiality and.... are pretty poor articles and don't really say much or are very encyclopedic. The only person who seems to be keen on those articles is you conservative. You are also the author of all of those articles and have protected most of them so us 'regular/normal' users cannot fix up what are some pretty poor articles to be honest. I think the quality of this encyclopedia if a lot of these articles where deleted or merged together. For example the homosexuality is an absolute mess/basket case that really needs to be cleaned up. And what is the point of having the article: Occupy Wall Street and bestiality chant ? It is nothing but a quote. It is already integrated into the Occupy Wall Street article so I will now go and put that article up for deletion. Dvergne 10:05, 4 May 2013 (EDT)

True conservatives don't bow their knees to liberal mobs!

True conservatives don't bow their knees to liberal mobs - especially atheist/agnostic mobs! Hold your vote libs, but I am not unlocking the web page to pacify some humorless and thin-skinned liberals! :) "I once wanted to become an atheist but I gave up . . . they have no holidays." - Henny YoungmanConservative 19:03, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

What's your understanding of the word, "mobs", Cons? AlanE 19:23, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

I actually laughed when I saw the page, it just doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the content of the site, such as the educational resources. KBeer 21:38, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

AlanE, a very unreasonable group of people who have difficulty controlling their emotions and focus on things which do not matter! :) Conservative 21:49, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
Cons, old mate; two against and one "wait and see" is not a "mob" by any definition of the word. (Unless it was three and a bit bottles of Bundy in NFQ - "How much ya drink last Sat'dee, Dick?" "Big mobs, mate, would you believe, ay.") AlanE 22:03, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
Mob is more commonly used by aborginies referring to groups of white fellas(or sometime others such as lebos, wogs, coconuts/fobs, asians ect.) people. Or a number of kangaroos are also called a mob. Some nice tucker in that mob, hey uncle?. Also only had a quite one last saturday mate, had a six pack or two and a fair whack of rum bottle. Dvergne 23:50, 3 May 2013 (EDT)

Actually I'm very good at controlling my emotions. Also I don't think typing a # and giving a four word reason requires a great deal of focus... KBeer 22:21, 3 May 2013 (EDT)
