The Creeping Crud[edit]

Delete, crudcruft. (OK, OK, I just wanted to a chance to say "crudcruft," the real reason is "dicdef.") Rather schizophrenically, I am nominating this for deletion just after editing it for language, and to improve the accuracy of the first definition. However, having done that, what I now have is three meanings for "creeping crud." Well, the first meaning I know is correct, and is vouched for by Wentworth and Flexner's slang dictionary. But I just don't believe the second and third. That is, I don't believe "creeping crud" as a nickname for slime mould, or as a substance used to clean electronics, are in wide use. Remove these two and you're left with a dicdef. Dpbsmith (talk) 02:56, 15 Jan 2005 (UTC)

  • It's a common enough term for fungial infections. If there's a generic article on those, redirect, otherwise, delete --Carnildo 02:43, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC)
(Not that it matters, but if the article is kept or made a redirect, it should be moved to Creeping crud per naming conventions... Dpbsmith (talk) 03:17, 16 Jan 2005 (UTC))
  • Abstain for now. Agreed, if it stays it needs to be renamed and rewritten. Megan1967 01:04, 20 Jan 2005 (UTC)
