The weather in London is perhaps the most often deleted article in Wikipedia. Used as an example for many years in Wikipedia's editing help page, the title was supposed to be an example of a red link. Hundreds of users followed that red link and actually placed an article, comment, or some sort of vandalism on the page. Many attempted redirects were made, often to Wikipedia's climate of London article.

Since the deleted-revisions table was lost in July 2004, the page has been edited 155 times.

The article features as one of Wikipedia's lamest edit wars and as one of the of really, really, really stupid article ideas that you really, really, really should not create. The edit war ended in January 2007 as a new cascading protection feature allowed admins to list the page as a protected title, preventing its recreation. A proposed policy regarding infinitely red linked titles was rejected at Wikipedia:Intentionally permanent red link.

Often, it is foggy in London. Many visitors remark on this.

One day, a man came up to me and said "Nice day, innit?" But it wasn't. It was a little bit cloudy. So I ... insert preferred action here

Sometimes, this page gets deleted.

Sometimes, people who should know better reinitiate pages like this. Sometimes, hopefully, they're not dismissed as vandals.
