The wonderful world of deletionism[edit]

  • O goddess of deletion, I seek your wisdom. :) Fuzheado
  • If I think anything needs deleting, I just delete it. Right away. Ed Poor
  • Whenever I delete ANYTHING without going through VfD, I'm attacked as a terrible person. RickK
  • VfD seems to have become a nest of control freaks. Ec
  • Are you saying that those of us who actually believe in deleting obnoxious and ridiculous articles are somehow damaging Wikipedia? RickK
  • Whenever I have a look at VfD these days I'm horrified. KF
  • VfD is broken. It probably never worked in the first place. Anthony DiPierro
  • VfD actually works pretty well most of the time. Jimbo Wales
  • Are people so intimidated by the wrath of the VfD denizens? Ec
  • VfD...is not tyranny, it is in the vicinity of fairness. Kingturtle
  • Votes for deletion is really just the pitiful remnants of a software feature that was abandoned over a year ago. Brion Vibber
  • There is no reason for a rule which says that all articles have to be either useful or deleted. Jimbo
  • Follow Jimbo's argument ...and should ...a non-paper book on Napoleon's sex life mention DW's edits of sports pages on wikipedia? Jtdirl
  • It seems that some people here are of the opinion that we should just leave everything on Wikipedia that is written on it. Andre Engels
  • Rampant deletionism is not a good thing. There's very seldom a good reason to delete things. Jimbo
  • Deletion is not deletionism, deletion is a valuable method for improving wikipedia. Daniel Quinlan
  • Be bold in updating pages does not mean "be bold in deleting pages"! :) Brion
  • All these problems would go away if only we were to have more faith in the wiki system. GrahamN
  • I'm going to propose again what I proposed once before: a temporary moratorium on deletions. Jake Nelson
  • I propose that we simply stop deleting anything for six months. JamesDay
  • I will agree only if Wikipedians agree not to bathe, brush their teeth, or launder their clothes for six months as well. You'll get the same result on your person as with Wikipedia. -Fuzheado
  • It is quite frankly the most ludicrous of ludicrous ideas. Jtdirl
  • If Wikipedia stops all deletion, we might as well leave ...It's going to turn into a crap hole. Daniel Quinlan
  • The entire wikipedia thrown into an orgy of deletions, undeletions, re-deletions, re-undeletions, re-un-redeletions, un-re-un-redeletions . . . It is cloud cuckooland rubbish. What next? FearÉIREANN
  • Anything that fucks with the deletionists must be good. BL
  • I think that the "deletionist" viewpoint has considerable merit, and that there are in fact some very thorny questions of reliability, respectability, usefulness, etc. on which the deletionist viewpoint has much merit. Jimbo
  • Is it an out of process deletion? Yes. Does it really matter? No. Are people going to make a big fuss? Yes. Cyan
  • Keep in mind that, while "Votes for deletion" has votes in the title, it is not a formal vote. Eloquence
  • I am tired of being threatened, "You either improve this article within the week; OR, we are gonna kill it!" Lir
  • A lot of horrible articles are rewritten regularly and removed from VfD because there's pressure to delete them. That's good just like having polar bears eat cute baby seals is good. -- Daniel Quinlan
  • The process can't possibly get fixed until we agree ...on what should be deleted. Louis Kyu Won Ryu
  • Most VfD conflicts come because there's no set criteria for what should be included in Wikipedia. Axlrosen
  • Better to have rules for what to delete than silly rules for excluding users from vote. Wanwan
  • We revised the deletion policy because it put into writing what was already being done by common sense, largely by Angela herself. Fuzheado
  • Have people lost all common sense and decency? You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Brion Vibber
  • What on Earth is all the fuss about? Evercat
  • Where Angela decides to delete an article..., I rarely have cause to even question her judgement, let alone the desire to raise a fuss. Martin
