*As "Uncyclopedia is not a catalog to things found elsewhere on the Net," I've deleted three sections that had no function but to send readers to YouTube. '''Pieces of this article intended to serve up true utterances of Beck by which to discredit him are advocacy, not humor, even if you think he is ridiculously funny.''' Some funny stuff remains <s>and I would like to see it merged into [[Glenn Beck]], as</s> "Asshat" in the title is likewise too busy being advocacy to help the reader reach the article. I assume Aleister's vote is more advocacy rather than a vote. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:31 15-Feb-13</small>
 
*:Advocacy? Are we wikipedia now? All the Fred Phelps pages are advocacy, the Hitler pages are too, I guess, and anti-Hitler pages are too, and on and on...[[user:Aleister|''Aleister'']] minutes later. I remember when we moved this page to here when Glenn Beck was replaced with the other page, and there was discussion about what to call it, and Asshat won.
 
*::I reply by boldfacing a sentence of my earlier reply. Multiple wrongs don't make a right. The Hitler pages have value added by Uncyclopedians. If you intend to reassemble the YouTube collection that I deleted, please take it to a more suitable website. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>14:41 15-Feb-13</small>
 
*::I strike part of my earlier reply. [[Glenn Beck]] was a FA and should not receive any orphaned pieces of this article, especially if that is not an improvement. {{User:SPIKE/signature}}<small>16:06 15-Feb-13</small>

del log

The goal here is to improve the quality of Uncyclopedia, not to win a vote. You can edit a page during a vote. You can flip your vote if the page improves or if other voters convince you.

To nominate a page for deletion
  • Read these rules and the deletion policy.
  • Do not increase the number of active nominations on VFD to over 20, as a 1 day ban often offends. (Inactive votes, which are grayed out, don't count in the limit of 20.)
  • Please check an article's history before nominating it. If there has been vandalism, revert it to the best past version. Also, check the article's talk page to see if it is in Category:Deletion Survivor. If so, Special:WhatLinksHere will find the relevant VFD archive(s); read about how the previous vote(s) went.
  • Add {{VFD}} to the article in question. Failure to do so will invalidate the vote.
  • If an article survives VFD, do not resubmit it for at least 1 month.

Add a new article here


How to quickly find VFDable articles (using special pages)

To vote to delete or keep an article
  • Edit the section for the article in question.
  • To vote, start a new line at the end of the delete= or keep= section, beginning with #. This creates a numbered entry. Do not put a space before #. Increment the delnumber or keepnumber, whichever applies.
    • To post brief indented replies to a vote, start lines with #: with one or more colons; anything else breaks the numbered list.
  • To type a comment, start a new line at the end of the comments= section, beginning with * (as comments need not be numbered).
  • Votes with an explanation, and comments, are more helpful in analyzing the quality of an article.
  • ~~~~ - Sign and timestamp your vote. Unsigned votes will be removed without prejudice.

Do not delete any content without authorization. To change a vote, strike your old one and add a new one. Do not change other users' posts. At least 24 hours must pass before a nomination is closed or an article is deleted.

  3. Symbol delete vote Delete. Considering that there are already two save votes, this article probably won't go. But I reckon that this article would be much funnier if it were actually about Samuel L Vacuum as opposed to plain navelism along the lines of "here's why it's funny".

    It was about Samuel L. Vacuum before it was rewritten to be about how terrible that concept was; see Comments. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 17:03 23 Nov 2014
Keep (2)
  1. Symbol keep vote A Classic. Hilarious and clever. This is not about writing an Uncyclopedia article. It's a parody of comedy writing in general and critique of the overuse of memes in place of actual jokes. This was one of the first articles I read on Uncyclopedia and one of the first to get me interested in this site, so I would think that there are others who find it amusing as well. --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 02:21, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    Mocking bad writing by imitating it simply produces a bad page. Your apparent knowledge of the point of this pointless article is not evident by reading the article. Spıke ¬ 14:36 23-Nov-14
  2. Symbol keep vote New low. Deleting featured articles? Petty petty. I don't particularly like it but enough people voted for it to highlight the site that you can't outright delete it. --Nikau (talk) 06:28, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    Some featured articles can be utter shite. This one isn't terrible, but if it was exactly as it is now and didn't have the "featured" at the top, it would be VFD material. ConCass2 (talk) 11:26, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    This vote ought to be disregarded because it is based not on the quality of the article, but on an objection to the policy. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 17:02 23 Nov 2014
    More problematic is disparaging fellow voters ("Petty petty"), a trend I thought had stopped when Shabidoo threw his Wikia pass-key down the gutter. However, you started it with the comment below, which suggests that a goal was to purge the site of a specific author. I famously enforce civility not with creative vote counting but with the ban-stick. Spıke ¬ 17:25 23-Nov-14
    I find it ironic that you would call Nikau's comment one that disparages other users and at the same time call my opinion of the article "apparent knowledge" that "is not evident by reading the article." That's a tad belittling, wouldn't you say? --Pwn head Sir Xam Ralco the Mediocre 21:17, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
    No I wouldn't, not ironic, not disparaging, and not belittling. I asserted that your statement about the point of the article is not evident from reading the article, that's all. Spıke ¬ 22:18 23-Nov-14

  • While it was created by Evilcorporatemetaljesus, it was rewritten by Mrmonkey72. Adding this because its original creator was mentioned in another discussion as having written this and other poor-quality articles. -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 00:40 23 Nov 2014
  • The current policy at Uncyclopedia is to protect featured articles. If anyone feels strongly about this then a forum can be created to discuss it there. --LaurelsRomArtus*Imperator ITRA (Orate) ® 21:36, November 23, 2014 (UTC)
  • 24 hours hasn't yet elapsed. Other articles are allowed more time; shouldn't this stay open a tad longer? -– Llwy-ar-lawr talk contribs 23:11 23 Nov 2014
