I think it really deserves one. It's not something I'd get greatly riled up about, and it's not quite as notable as Planet Sound and Digitiser, but way more so than Backchat and the TV Views and all that. Keep fighting, Phil!

Hm, the page went yesterday. I checked a couple of weeks ago and there was a bit of a debate about it.

I'd quite like to know why this innocuous little page has become suddenly become a contentious target for Wikipedia jobsworths with inflexible opinions.


Same reason the webcomics get targeted; some people can't even be trusted with low-level power.

Meh. It’s wikipedia, you guys are better off making an entry in Uncyclopedia.

Funny I should say this, as the only reason I knew this site existed was because of the Wikipedia entry for Mega-zine.
