Tags were removed because tagger failed to document why the tag was added and provided no links to guide article editors (personal bias displayed in the edit summary was additionally unhelpful). JScribner (talk) 04:08, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
There was no personal bias in the edit summary, I'll remind you to read WP:NPA and keep your comments to the articles and their content and not the contributors. Tags like "unreferenced" don't need any further explanation, while you may have disagreed with the NPOV tag, the unreferenced tag is very clear and self-explanatory and removing it was improper.--Crossmr (talk) 09:23, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Your edit summary reads "tagging for multiple issues. I can't believe this is even here. Yet another webcomic without a shred of established notability, no sources, and little more than a giant character list.." I post this here to let others reviewing this talk page make their own determination. In the future, might I suggest you try "tagging for multiple issues. lack of independent or significant references raises concerns of notability, neutrality" JScribner (talk) 14:53, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
Which is a factually correct and a common complaint on wikipedia. Webcomics are often added here as a form of advertising and many creators seem to think as soon as they get a half dozen strips under their belt they can set up a page here, and use it as a pseudo fan page. So yes it was "yet another webcomic" that displayed those issues. If you read that as some kind of bias, that is unfortunate, but I treat every unsourced article exactly the same regardless of subject.--Crossmr (talk) 17:54, 20 December 2008 (UTC)
