Once More to the Wikipedia Well

In the Guardian today, author Nichlolas Baker has an article about his Wikipedia obsession and towards the end hits on webcomics:

In the autumn of 2006, groups of editors went around getting rid of articles on webcomic artists - some of the most original and articulate people on the net. One openly called it the "web-comic articles purge of 2006". A victim, Trev-Mun, author of a comic called Ragnarok Wisdom, wrote: "I got the impression that they enjoyed this kind of thing as a kid enjoys kicking down others' sandcastles." Rob Balder, author of a webcomic called PartiallyClips, likened the organised deleters to book burners.
