  • If the external links are such a problem, I don't think the article would suffer too much if they were removed. I didn't click on a single one and I still enjoyed it. -– Llwy-ar-lawr (talkcontribs) 02:30 27 Sep 2014
    This refers to my complaint to author and his vulgar response that I had a duty to understand what he was getting at. Indeed, an unexplained bulleted list of seven numbers, which do nothing unless you click on them, adds no humor to the page, and suggests that the reader has a comparable duty to get himself sufficiently informed to appreciate the page. In fact, the author ought to bring the humor to the reader. By the way, I have read the entire Intro again and it is still not clear that an alternate voice is the basis of the "humor." Spıke ¬ 02:44 27-Sep-14
    Well, since you seem to be one of the newer additions to the site in relative terms, people have been using links like that in select articles for a long time: see Gay Pubs. You remain the only one on either site to ever find it necessary to tell me (very rudely I might add) how unfunny my work was on my talk page. If you feel the need to pointedly tell established members "I don't like this" and call it an "opinion essay" (what?) without constructive criticism, then you probably need to look at yourself good and close. Which was quite a disappointment because I remember you being a promising new writer from the same way back when Gay Pubs came from. --Nikau (talk) 07:29, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
    I am not against references, even when they are simply external links. In my opinion, the writer is not asking the reader to get informed before reading his article, but rather saying: "Here is my joke! Now, if you want to know more on the topic, here is a link that can help you." Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 10:45, September 27, 2014 (UTC)

    There; it is like 5 people now. A vote is a vote, but to call a slap against someone's wife "misgynist" [sic] and the use of wetback (here only to disparage credulity about the name of Newark) "racist" is not voting but trolling. Spıke ¬ 13:00 16-Aug-14

  2. Against. Agree with the above. "Pwned" is lazy, the quotes are pretty lame (lol penis) and the King Kong thing is so tired and borderline racist (and tired).

  • Comment. I dumped the quotes and the Kong, but it needs the pwned to go to be close to a feature. Nikau (talk) 11:50, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
    The image you removed was a collage borrowed from Wikipedia, whose purpose was to prove that the way LeBron was portrayed on the cover of Vogue was racist (the very right image). That's pretty complicated to understand, but it's definitely not racism.
    Concerning the "pwned" part, I agree that it could be rephrased. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 11:58, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
  • Comment. The joke beneath the image was definitely borderline, unless saying the father of a black man is an ape is accepted now. --Nikau (talk) 13:51, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
    • I reworded the caption and restored the image. If anyone was racist in this case, it was Vogue. But I don't think even they were racist. Wouldn't you be proud if you were the King Kong's son? No? Just joking. Anton (talk) Uncyclopedia United 17:11, September 27, 2014 (UTC)
      • No, because comparing black people to King Kong is a really old and tired, borderline racist, joke. The vast majority of readers will find it less funny than Wildeisms. The whole popped out of his mother and has no father section is lazy stereotyping. Like I said, 50% is funny and 50% subtracts from the first, so you reach a mediocre article. --Nikau (talk) 05:56, September 28, 2014 (UTC)
