Calling I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream "recent" (edit link fills me with suspicion. Are you sure some of this article wasn't copied from a book or article, perhaps one written shortly after the game was published? -- Andrew Nagy 68.44.13.236 21:20, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

It does not appear to be a copyright violation from anything I can find online. Whether it was copied from a book or magazine article is another matter altogether. I use terms like "recent" and "most recently" all the time when writing articles on performers and production staff, but they generally don't refer to things so far back as 1995... --From Andoria with Love 01:17, 26 November 2006 (UTC)
"and of course that most venerable of media, books." The style of this article fills me with suspicion. It's not exactly encyclopedic and could use revision. "Venerable" appears at least twice here, too, which is kind of odd. Gonk (Gonk!) 22:18, 31 May 2007 (UTC)

Penny ArcadeEdit

Since this article delves into Ellison's personality and behavior, would it be appropriate to link to the story of his treatment of the Penny Arcade guys? http://www.penny-arcade.com/2005/09/26 --Spider 16:28, 5 January 2007 (UTC)

I think not. Its relevance to Trek is, well, non-existent. --OuroborosCobra talk 16:32, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
...and his use of an alias for pornographic fiction is relevant to Trek? His lawsuit w.r.t. Terminator is relevant to Trek? The reason I asked to begin with is because the article already contains plenty of info about what a pr*ck he is that is not directly relevant to Trek.--Spider 17:42, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
At least that stuff is better sourced than the blog on a webcomic page. I have been to a talk by the Penny Arcade creators, and they are very funny guys, but they are not authorities in this area or a great resource to be citing. --OuroborosCobra talk 17:45, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
I concede the sourcing point. Consider it dropped. --Spider 20:44, 5 January 2007 (UTC)
