Everywhere Girl: You're deleted

Wikipedian parrots peck her to death
Fri Jul 14 2006, 11:05
ANONYMOUS WIKIPEDIAN PARROTS have succeeded in their tedious but apparently relentless aim of removing a reference to the Everywhere Girl from the wannabe encyclopaedia.

That follows absurd and frenzied claims the INQUIRER and Jennifer Chandra had conspired to create the whole phenomenon.

The deletions seem to be part of a campaign by Wikiparrots Dionyseus and Bwithh, who took it upon themselves to out the Everywhere Girl's identity and also to make derogatory comments about INQUIRER editorial.

Dionyseus has made a singular contribution to world literature with this entry on the famous Slig.

You-apos-re-deletedWe wrote to Wikipedia's press office complaining about this treatment - the spinners have not yet graced us with an answer. But they have now apparently "disappeared" the scandalous statements originally made as well as the Everywhere Girl article itself.

The good news is there's another project en route, set up by a co-founder of Wikipedia, and which will use experts to produce an online encyclopaedia without necessarily using the expertise of 23 year olds with a grasp only on Slig and pseudo-penises. µ
