Looking at the main protagonists, I'm not surprised at all

On reading the main article:

[edit] Popularity
On January 17, 2007, the site logged 3.93 million page impressions, a figure that then rose to a new best of 4.07 million page impressions - some 180,000 unique visitors - on January 18, 2007
Shilpa Shetty vs Jade Goody night.

I was one of those statistics. I joined DS round about then too.

That page is a perfect example of why Wiki is pretty much a waste of space: so many edits because people have agendas / biases

Actually, I think it proves that Wikipedia works. Lots of people start by bringing their disparate agendas and biases, and through constant peer review and discussion, a neutral consensus is reached. Seems pretty good to me, really.

It's all a bit sad and tit-for-tat, but compelling reading in a gruesome kind of way.

It's better to be looked over than overlooked as the fabulous Mae West once said.

True, and any publicity is good publicity, as someone else said.

That uncyclopedia entry is funny, even though I quite like a few of those who it's taking the piss out of.

'Uncylopedia' works the same way as Wikipedia.
Anyone can edit any entry, could be pretty much anybody with a grievance.

So this reply will probably disappear as well when they run their next purge?
