Retarded Animal Babies in NEED
Here's a chance to help out Dave Lovelace and the entire lovable RAB clan. You owe them at least this much for the wonderful influence they have had on your beloved Metasonix boxes.
As most of you probably know, Wikipedia is a cesspool of bias, ego and misinformation.
However, it's also (somewhat sadly) become a major reference point in our digital society.
For reasons unknown, the powers-that-pee over at the mighty Wiki seem to have a major bug in their ass about Retarded Animal Babies. I don't have the whole story, but many attempts, by multiple parties, to craft an article on RAB have been fruitless. Articles PERFECTLY fitting the accepted Wikipedia 'style', including references, proper tone and bias, etc., are constantly rejected, deleted and locked by Wiki administrators. It's crazy.
I'm going to make some comments in the Wiki discussion pages about this. There's no reason this should be happening. It's unfair and irrational bias, and it's extremely unfortunate for Dave and the work he does. It is CENSORSHIP, that alone should be enough to motivate you to speak out.
I'd like to ask for the help of anyone who cares, or would like to help. Please post comments in these discussion sections at Wikipedia, challenge their bone-headed refusal to allow RAB content on their site. Let's see if we can get this to somehow magically be approved on Wikipedia.
This is where you can comment:
Additionally, hey are are trying to get this page killed:
Your help, comments, lobbying are all GREATLY appreciated. Someone has to stand up to these idiots.
And thanks Eric for bringing this to my attention. Sorry Dave that these guys have something against you. Ridiculous.

Edit 2: Broken links fixed. Thanks Felix!
