I recently added a bunch of webcomics to the Atomic Bomb category based on those webcomics being listed as So Bad It's Horrible on Tvtropes but it was quickly reverted. While I won't try to contest the reverts on the wiki, I'm having trouble telling what's an Atomic Bomb. I originally thought it was due to general horribleness but that was proven wrong by things getting reverted. The categories section defines an Atomic Bomb as being a combination of Disgusting, Enraging and Mindfuck or finding a new/unexpected way of being horrible, however this definition doesn't seem to work since it includes Billy the Heretic and Hathor the Cow Goddess which while both are Enraging and a Mindfuck, neither are disgusting.

Those everybody agrees are especially offensive, such as extremely offensive political cartoons or especially disgusting pornography.  It's a category all its own.

Of course we debate those first.  Hathor the Cow Goddess and Billy the Heretic fall into the former category, while Concession and Kit 'n' Kay Boodle fall into the latter.  But everyone has to agree without anyone arguing otherwise.  Stalag '99 didn't qualify because it's not bad enough to be genuinely offensive.
