Mock and Daisy have some common sense advice for the trolls attacking them on the internet – Find a new hobby! The world is already crazy enough as it is right now it doesn’t need people on Wikipedia fighting over .whether the Chicks accomplishments are notable or not. It’s time people start spreading more positivity instead of spending there free time attacking people from behind a screen.

    Hmm, should I keep listening? Sounds like they are not quite notable enough.

    I suppose they don’t want too many conservative types having wiki pages because it will be too much work to edit them all with negative aspersions.

    It just goes to show you the pettiness to which the left will stoop when it comes to silencing conservatives. If a thirteen-year-old drag queen is notable enough (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desmond_Napoles), why not Mock and Daisy?

    Great podcast! I’m a listener now, and I’ll try to remember to put in a review on iTunes. Keep up the good work!

    Update: Five-star review done.

    A decade or so ago Wikipedia started culling pages for webcomics. They weren’t notable. This is understandable because comics range from major entertainment businesses down to, well, my brother, drawing on his phone during downtime at work. Also understandable, there was a great deal of backlash from the webcomics types at the time.

    The notability standards exist because, although bandwith and storage space are extremely cheap, they are not free. The distinction should impress itself on you each time you go to Wikipedia and they ask for more money. Someone has to keep running electricity into those servers. 

    Oh, and it’s also there to prevent con artists from bootstrapping themselves into publicity. Create own Wikipedia page -> use wikipedia page as resume in order to get interviewed by local news -> use local news interview to prove to Wikipedia that you deserve a page. We had a local music man type do this with some success. 

    All that said it does sound like someone is trying to railroad y’all.
