    - Consensus Resolved -

    Agreed upon points in debate

    • Dan Savage's name should not be incorporated in any titleing. See decision.
    • This article is: about a campaign started by Dan Savage to humiliate Rick Santorum by establishing his surname as a sexual innuendo.
    • "santorum", if employed in article title, is lower case
    • The campaign to establish the word association is notable.
    • "Vulgar" cannot be used as an unattributed, unqualified and/or unsourced characterization of the "definition" in "Wikipedia's Voice"
    • "Vulgar" satisfies WP:V, WP:RS and WP:UNDUE considerations as a "fact about opinion" for article inclusion.
    • Website can be used in lede.
    • External link to website is permissible (see decision).

    You're right, I slipped a decade, now corrected above -- thanks! -- The Anome (talk) 13:51, 16 January 2016 (UTC)
    Funny, I just tried the same, because I was wondering. That's one long-running (t)rick(roll) ... ehm, santoruming, to coin a term. Yes, a neologistic campaign against a person shall now be known as "santoruming" them. (Although it might be more appropriate to say that Santorum has been "Savaged" ...) --Florian Blaschke (talk) 02:36, 4 January 2016 (UTC)
    I also googled "santorum" Feb 21st 2016 (after deleting my browser history and switching to English, I am from Austria) and got a slightly different order:
    1. Wikipedia's Campaign for "santorum" neologism article
    2. Wikipedia's Rick Santorum article
    3. "Santorum for President" website
    4. Wiktionary definition, per Savage
    5. Urban Dictionary definition of this term, per Savage
    6. Mother Jones article about the "Google problem"
    7. www.spreadingsantorum.com
    8. blog.spreadingsantorum.com
    9. CNN article: Santorum drops presidential campaign
    10. Santorum's Facebook page

    The results slightly change if I google upper-case "Santorum", the top 2 stay the same. --212.186.181.3 (talk) 22:04, 21 February 2016 (UTC)
