Seriously, do we have any framework for what people should qualify with an article? I have a blog, should I have an article? ADK writes great screeds, should he have an article? I really think we need to revisit who we grant articles for. Pink mowse.pngGodotGrow a vagina 21:14, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Last year 'katz, Pops Foster, LX,and Blue purged a bunch, but they were restored. I do think there should be some threshold. TyAnnoy 21:17, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

Well, that was hiiiilarious while it lasted. Scarlet A.pngbomination 23:07, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
Maybe set a threshold on how many followers or views they have? To me, there should be more focus on pseudoscientific/creationist blogs and YouTube channels than atheist/skeptic ones. Seems more in line with the mission to me. Sam Tally-ho! 21:44, 8 February 2012 (UTC)
I think some of these are written because the guy who writes them is one of them. But yes, we should focus on the creationist/crank ones over these guys. TyAnnoy 21:47, 8 February 2012 (UTC)

So can we kill this now? ТyBother me 01:34, 6 October 2012 (UTC)

Not sure what the consensus is, but if this is going to stay, it should be rewritten. I fixed some minor grammatical errors, but it really isn't written well at all. Either kill it or rewrite it. Mcnamara12 (talk) 17:15, 26 October 2012 (UTC)

I'd vote for a rewrite. Youtuber or not, he has a fairly individual story on how he became a rationalist, and his views are articulate, well-researched and generally topical. I would have thought he definitely deserved an article here.Dorianin (talk) 02:13, 8 November 2012 (UTC)
