The biiiig Wackypedia clearout

This is an announcement from your friendly neighbourhood yak. This week I shall be trawling the Illogicopedia in cleanup mode, taking a hammer to both the Trash bin and Mexicans categories.

Just to let you know that I will be checking the articles for quality first, before I trash, stubbify or (on rare occasion) delete a selection of the very worst 'Wackypedia fodder', as I like to call it.

Such fodder is stuff left over from the Wikia days that was just about acceptable at the time, but is now not really the kind of content we want to be looking to promote.

If I delete anything you wish to improve or keep (for some strange reason) you can find it in its pre-2009 form over at Wackypedia. I'm not linking to it here -- I don't want to give them the satisfaction of a backlink, which they have refused to give us -- do a quick Google search for it if you must.

I've already cleaned out about 40 articles and, with a bit of help from you helpful Illogicopedians armed with the Random Page link, I hope to clear out some more old stuff in the near future. Cheers all.

Oh yeah, and vote on the VFD articles, lest ye be devoured by a Halloween monster or something.
