Okay, I'm calling a vote. I think this article doesn't meet any of the four parts of the mission statement. Remembering that RW is not a general encyclopedia, I think we should 86 this article. The Heidelberg Kid (talk) 22:47, 13 November 2011 (UTC)

Okay, so…[edit]

I've started expanding and improving this. However, I will very shortly be taking a WikiBreak, meaning I won't be able to finish it, so if anybody else could pick up where I left off, that would be great. Impurity is the secret Unite with thy oracle Dolan.png 05:39, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Virus disbelievers[edit]
