WikiWatch: Getting ‘Ugly’

Moments after the dust settled on the Evil Inc/Wikipedia fracas, the Wikipedia entry for Ugly Hill entry has been flagged for deletion!

The creator of the strip, Paul Southworth, was one of the first people to alert readers to the plight of Evil Inc’s Wikipedia entry.

Now his own comic is flagged?! One day later??

I don’t believe in coincidence.

This looks awfully vindictive, and I think it must be addressed at once.

One of the things that WikiEditors said repeatedly during this week’s dust-up was that things would have went better if we had spoken up while the Evil Inc article was under Deletion Review. Well, we don’t have that issue with Ugly Hill.

What are you waiting for? Make a difference.

Wikipedia belongs to everybody. Not to a vindictive few.
