Lore, or move?

I've dug pretty deep, and can't find evidence that there's ever been a Lorem Ipsum monster. I suspect that this page was actually created with an incorrect title for the artifact Lorem Ipsum dictionary, and then miss-categorised as a Monster.

Personally I've always loved this page, and want it preserved, either as Lore (see also the discussion regarding Lore articles) or moved to become the artifact page. -- Djonni (talk) 07:48, 20 December 2019 (UTC)

Well the edit say "new page consisting largely of the word-fill the monster is named after, with some accurate, though garbled, latin", so it's possible the monster existed at some point, but may have been removed. But though, I admit the lack of data from the forums doesn't help confirm it. --WardPhoenix (talk) 13:03, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
Okay, I dug deeper, and found the first edit that added Lorem Ipsum to the wiki. It was this one, while Whet Dreams was working in a sandbox parallel to the real List of Monsters, and which he then merged in with this edit.
Now, the question is, of course, how Whet Dreams collected the Monster data he put into his sandbox. His edits were generally quite accurate, and I suspect he must have used a script of some kind to collect such a large list of monsters so quickly, so perhaps this is really a {{Historical}} page, rather than Lore! -- Djonni (talk) 14:01, 20 December 2019 (UTC)
