An article may be marked as "Dead To Me" if it isn't adding to the truthiness of Wikiality.com's internets tubes. This most often occurs when an article is meaningless gibberish, like reading a Howard Kurtz column in the Washington Post. In other words, such an article is unsalvageably not truthy.
At other times, when articles get moved around, meaningless pages are created that end up just redirecting to other pages uselessly. Stephen can't abide by "uselessly," his least-favorite adverb, so these pages also get marked as "Dead To Me" and are deleted.
Pages can also become dead to the Wikiality.com tubes when they are full of liberal propaganda, full of conservative propaganda, full of vicious lies and rumors about unimportant people (aka "vanity"), full of truth about vicious and lying unimportant people (also aka vanity), or full of details (important or un-) about anything or anyone that have been copied from another source. None of these pages are part of The Stephen Colbert Experience.
But the #1 way to ensure that a page will become "Dead To Me" - without so much as a lingering chronic illness phase - is to put a "Flog" on these tubes. Wikiality.com doesn't tolerate flogging, and all floggers will have their user accounts blocked. If you want to wikilobby, go do it a free encyclopedia.
