Keep: For a decade or so, this phrase was famous. I think it's worth keeping the article just because 20 years from now someone might run across the phrase and want to look up what the heck it's about. -- Jmabel | Talk 04:55, Feb 3, 2005 (UTC)
Merge & redirect, while the phrase itself is notable, I don't see it ever becoming more than a short stub. Put into another article, it can be more encyclopedic, and it won't seem so out-of-place. -Frazzydee|✍ 04:59, 3 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Keep, for the same reasons as Jmabel gave. We have pages for programming errors also, such as Segmentation fault. Quite frankly, I'm surprised there are only 21k Google hits on this. I saw it all the time in the MS-DOS days. --Idont Havaname 23:03, 4 Feb 2005 (UTC)
Under that principle, it should redirect to an article with a name like User error. "Segmentation fault" is a term for a type of program failure, "bad command or file name" is an OS-specific user error message. - Keith D. Tyler[flame] 23:24, Feb 4, 2005 (UTC)
