From WP:RfD:

  • Sammich -> Sandwich. There's no such word, or at best it's a neologism, which WP:NOT. Putting things into redirects is no excuse. -Splash 00:07, Jun 17, 2005 (UTC)
    • Keep redirecting from a neologism is a perfect example of why redirects exist. —Preceding unsigned comment added by SchmuckyTheCat (talkcontribs) 03:49, 17 Jun 2005
    • Keep. Enough people write sammich (I routinely do, as Google will attest) to make this useful. Bill 10:40, 19 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Comment - that Google list makes my point - one person has used it a total of 19 times. Misspellings have no place in an encyclopedia. Nor in a dictionary, nor in any written format.-Splash 13:32, Jun 19, 2005 (UTC)
      • That link is restricted; it only searches his site. A Google search of the whole web produces about 90K hits; not all are for the sandwich meaning, but a lot are. Noel (talk) 03:37, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)
    • Keep- I'd generally agree with Splash about misspellings, but this is one that has become a neologism that actually is used deliberately in print (esp. advertising)- thus, I think it is a reasonable thing to redirect. -FZ 00:47, 22 Jun 2005 (UTC)

So, they're voting on deleting this? Not I. --Wetman 00:10, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
