Slow News Day: Wikipedia Delete Attitude 3 Article

The entry for the third volume of the comics anthology Attitude, edited by Ted Rall, has been deleted from Wikipedia. The cause for deletion according to the newly created “deletion review” (which is a petition to overturn the deletion) was that it was advertising.

Why is this news (albeit on a slow day) on a site about webcomics? Because the complete title of the third volume is Attitude 3: The New Subversive Online Cartoonists. While perhaps a bit paranoid, the fact that the articles for the two previous Attitude volumes, covering political cartoonists and alternative cartoonists respectively, remain and have the same format as the deleted article certainly makes one wonder.
