I'm glad that Kiwi railway articles for the most part are very quiet. Any issues tend to be very quickly resolved by myself and a couple of other guys who do the bulk of NZR editing. We've only had two articles deleted. One was shockingly written by an editor who had caused us problems with his contributions on existing articles, and even if we'd tried to save it, I'm not sure it would have satisfied notability guidelines. The other was blatant crystal-balling (claiming our next class of locomotives will be the DK class despite there being no solid plans for new locos!), and after discussing it a bit, the article's creator nominated it for deletion themselves.

But some of the other bullshit that occurs in other fields is laughable and I don't know why people bother. Biographies of living people seem to be an especially nasty target. Right now, I'm just getting lulz from the Administrators' Noticeboard.

Oh, airliners.net

There's a very excited thread about Delta's new 737-700 and how it'll be rolled out of the factory at Renton shortly and how exciting it is.

Of course, it gets rolled out of the factory looking like this:



Its.......just like.....uh, any other one. Oh, except for the rudder.

Nuttery.

See the template at the top of the page, it has a "Noticeboards" section linking to various other noticeboards with more lulz.

Some of the incidents are procedural things and not all that interesting, but others ... you wonder why people care so much.

Nah, I was thinking I'd on-sell one or two a day. I sometimes get a little full. Mmm, egg white. Vomitastic!

hew: I was wondering about that. So many thoughts. When the hell did they come here?? And why the would you pick Victoria Park as a venue?? The only people who used to go there think 'music' is picking up a piece of wood and banging it against a wall.

U2 playing Waverley Park on Popmart was even more fucking bizarre, though.
