The Wikipedia Deletion Game
by Devanshu Mehta
Currently, an entry for Joe the Plumber is being debated [for deletion]. Does it really dilute the value of Wikipedia to have entries like that? I remember when some people contested my entry (I wasn’t the one to put it up), it felt like some amateurish tenure review, except with not quite the same consequences. Would anyone care to defend the practice? I’m eager to understand the motivations better.
