Monday, I could be dead: Marked for speedy deletion
Ian Lurie Aug 27 2010
As egos go, mine is a bit small, damp and non-resilient. So, when I search for my own name on the web, it’s mostly to see who’s writing mean things about me and making ready to defend myself.
Years ago, I set up a page on Wikipedia, so that someone I knew in 7th grade couldn’t come along and write about how, at that age, I looked like ET with a wig.
Imagine my surprise, then, to find out that I’d been marked for
death speedy deletion:
Note that I check in on my Wikipedia account about once a year, so I didn’t see this until far too late. My page has already been deleted.
I never thought it would end like this…
What does Aaron Wall got that I don’t?
