Un-encyclopaedic. --Neigel von Teighen 21:18, 4 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Keep — Term widely used, including a Linux Distro. — RJH 00:35, 6 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- This article is a discussion of the origins and meaning of a phrase. That's a dictionary definition, not an encyclopedia article. Transwiki to Wiktionary. Rossami (talk) 01:09, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- Keep — This entry not only describes the meaning of the phrase but also details the usage and origin, which are beyond the scope of most dictionaries. There is also some hint of the social forces driving the development of language although this may, or may not, be expanded upon. The item is no less worthy of inclusion than the referenced definition of 'creeping featurism'. User:MNH 10:45, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
- User's only edits are to this vfd. —Korath (Talk) 18:50, Mar 19, 2005 (UTC)
- Comment: I respectfully disagree. Usage and origin or the word or phrase are exactly what I would expect to find in a really good, unabridged dictionary. Rossami (talk)
- Keep, real term, article goes beyond dicdef - David Gerard 15:31, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)
