Recall a couple years ago we put an edbrowse article up on wikipedia.
It was instantly tagged for speedy deletion, and I told them that it was in manyh distributions, with links thereto, thus relevant and in common use, and they removed the offensive tag, and the article has stood ever since.
Today I got a second tag for speedy deletion.
I spent about 10 minutes trying to figure out why, since nothing has changed; or how to reply or comment, and got nowhere,
perhaps because wikipedia for editing, not just reading articles, is not that edbrowse friendly.
So I simply gave up.
My life is horrid right now, too horid to work on edbrowse technically, or administratively.
To horrid to do much of anything except play solitaire all day.
edbrowse will die when I die, as will everything else I've ever done in my life,
in fact all our accomplishments and hopes and dreams will evaporate when the sun goes nova, so it doesn't matter anyways.
I just thought I'd let you all know, in case you want to look into it or vote or comment etc.
Go to en.wikipedia.org/wiki/edbrowse and notice the deletion tag.
