Bad Link[edit]

Reference 1 pointing to a People magazine article is bad. People publishes permalinks on some articles, which should always be used. If a link is not a permalink, it's going to rot someday.

Because I am not an active editor on this page, I'm not going to remove the reference, I'll leave that to the worthy. The bad news is that I don't see a good citation for this piece of info anywhere handy.

Does anyoen else think that the extra column (other notes) on the table at the bottom is unnecessary? Surely a small footnote could replace this and make it look a lot neater Epitaf 14:10, 8 October 2006 (UTC)


She was also in a law and order episode where her mother was a cult leader who would make her sleep with her brother

Removed this paragraph due to plagarism:

A Detroit native whose entry into the comedy scene wasn't entirely intentional, the former performance artist decided to try her hand at humor when a non-comedic performance at the San Francisco Art Institute elicited unexpected laughs from the audience. Subsequently realizing the absurdity inherent in overly serious performance art, Rajskub soon adjusted her act to become a parody of performance art. The unique take on live comedy quickly caught on with audiences, and shortly thereafter, Rajskub was approached by Bob Odenkirk and David Cross and asked to join the cast of their upcoming HBO stream-of-consciousness comedy series Mr. Show. A somewhat bitter falling out with series co-creator Cross found Rajskub departing from the series after a year to take a job at Seattle's Best Coffee, but her career as a caffeine dealer would quickly come to an end when Garry Shandling caught wind of her act.

Privacy[edit]

I removed the comment about the medication Mary Lynn is allegedly taking because there were no sources cited (which is why the comment was removed previously) and to adhere to Wikipedia's policies about the privacy of living persons. I don't think comments about a person's medication, whether true or not, belong in an encyclopedia unless the subject has made a point of promoting the medication (for example as Jonathan Edwards (athlete) did after undergoing laser eye surgery).

Which medication? Ritalin? I was about to add it to the article, but then I won't. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.92.185.41 (talk) 19:30, 3 May 2011 (UTC)

Copyvio[edit]

Much of the phrasing in this article seems to have been copied from Rajskub's IMDB biography. I will clean it up later when I have more time, unless someone else wants to do it first. TacoDeposit 17:19, 9 February 2007 (UTC)

Did the sentence "That cheerfully vulgar title sums up the overall tone, which is often breezily obscene." come from the LA Times review of her show "Mary Lynn Spreads Her Legs"? I see no indication of that in the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 98.228.60.112 (talk) 02:44, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Looks that way - I'll add a reference. Thanks for catching this! GoingBatty (talk) 04:29, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Fansites?[edit]

What is the current policy regarding fansites? I thought these were deprecated as unencyclopedic. If so, the link at the bottom of the article should be removed. 12.22.250.4 16:44, 3 April 2007 (UTC)

Fansites are not expressly unencyclopedic. I do think a link to a specific article on this particular fan site (The MLR Fan Club) may be more appropriate. I was thinking along the lines of this review of her one woman show. Raandrace 04:56, 21 April 2007 (UTC)

I'm wikipedia-retarded, but the link to Home Movies directs to the page about videos made by amateurs at their homes, rather than http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Home_Movies_(TV_series) like it should. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.158.149.90 (talk) 08:13, 10 February 2009 (UTC)
