Read deleted Wikipedia articles on DeletionPedia

Wikipedia articles get deleted all the time. It’s no secret. Articles that do not meet the relevant criteria for content of the encyclopedia, as put down by their Deletion Policy, are identified and removed from Wikipedia. Each day, Wikipedia deletes approximately five thousand pages! What if you want to read an article that’s no longer on Wikipedia? Visit, DeletionPedia. There is a high chance of finding the deleted article there.

DeletionPedia is a non-wiki based database that automatically picks up articles dropped from the English Wikipedia. Non-wiki based means, it’s contents can’t be edited. It currently archives more than 63,000 articles. Some of these articles are fit to be deleted, even from DeletionPedia. I mean, who the hell needs a "List of films with monkeys in them"?
