Old Man Murray entry deleted from Wikipedia

shoptroll writes "In what can be best described as an unfortunate interpretation of the "notability standards" at Wikipedia, Rock, Paper, Shotgun reports that the entry for Old Man Murray, once a mainstay of PC Gaming reviews and commentary, has been deleted. A sad day for gaming journalism everywhere."

But, I'm not sure if OMM is relevant, at least nowadays. "Yello There", the parody of Blue's News, was a lot funnier than OMM, and "Kneel" Harriot nor Yello is in wikipedia [google.com] . Hell, afaik my site, the Springfield Fragfest, was as popular as OMM's and I'm certainly not notable enough for wikipedia, even though it's still mentioned on google [google.com] , although the first listing is plagiarised from my old site.

I'm only relevant to my fellow nerds, as was OMM. With your six digit UID I'm surprised you aren't on my "fans" list. Have a taste. [slashdot.org]
