Al-Gebra[edit]

Apparently Ed Poor has now taken to wasting the time of legitimate editors by posting bogus lame joke pages. Great.

  • Point of order. Shouldn't the nomination be signed, and a specific reason given ("even though you may think it should be obvious?") After signing the nomination and giving a reason, the nominator is encouraged to remove this comment. [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 16:20, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)

  • Redirect to Algebra - it is actually a legitimate transliteration of the arabic. The Recycling Troll 03:10, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete to bjaodn. Gazpacho 03:11, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • BJAODN at best. Not even a new joke, probably a copyvio. Ed, this is a f---ing waste of time, you should know better. Any reason we can't just speedy-delete as blatant nonsense, this sort of thing damages our credibility. -- Jmabel 03:13, Oct 1, 2004 (UTC)
  • bjaodn. i agree though, it isn't original as i have seen it elswehere before this. Codywilson 03:15, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Ambi 03:35, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Redirect to Algebra, and "The Recycling Troll" did so already -- Chris 73 Talk 03:40, Oct 1, 2004 (UTC)
  • Speed deleted as patent nonsense. If someone wants to see a redirect to algebra, they're more than welcome to make one. Wile E. Heresiarch 14:04, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Copied to Father of the bride of bad jokes and other deleted nonsense. Recreate as redirect. —No-One Jones (m) 16:27, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Although this article should be deleted, and although I don't want to waste everyone's time by restoring it for the duration of VfD, I do not think this meets the definition of "patent nonsense" and do not think it should have been speedily deleted. It's not nonsense at all. It is patently false, or patently jocular, but neither of those are justifications for speedy. For the curious: content is a shown below: [[User:Dpbsmith|Dpbsmith (talk)]] 16:25, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
    Al Gebra is a terrorist movement which has reportedly infiltrated American schools. It began at the undergraduate level and has spread to secondary schools, according to US Attorney General John Ashcroft. Academics dismiss the Ashcroft's accusations as pandering to the lowest common denominator of anti-Arab prejudice.
    The web of deception was first uncovered at New York's Kennedy Airport when an individual claiming to be a school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, protractor, set square, slide rule and calculator. At a morning press conference, Attorney General John Ashcroft, said he believes the man is:
    "a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction." A SNIE reveals that al-Gebra uses use secret code names like 'x' and 'y' and refer to themselves as 'unknowns', and the CIA has determined they belong to an axis of medieval with coordinates in every country.
    As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, "there are three sides to every triangle."

  • Delete and add to BJAODN Fire Star 20:04, 1 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Agree with Bpbsmith. Delete but this was not eligible to be a speedy under the current rules. Rossami 03:35, 2 Oct 2004 (UTC)
  • Original content was useless (except as a contribution to BJAODN); keep the redirect. -- Mike Rosoft 20:15, 5 Oct 2004 (UTC)
