The original post has been removed as it violates one of Wikipedia's policies. When an article on Wikipedia is marked for deletion, the members of the community are asked to measure its validity. A 3rd party posting, such as the that previously existed at this particular URL, that asks visitors to "rush in" and make their opinion known, unfairly tips the balance and bias of what should instead be a non-biased discussion of the merits (instead of the popularity) of the subject.

I was unaware of this Wikipedia policy and frankly, I agree with it as Wikipedia has always been about balance. I will say, however, that concerted "anti-blog" campaigns currently being waged on Wikipedia are certainly perverting this balance.
