For the policy about personal attacks, see Wikipedia:No personal attacks.

An attack page is a page created only to insult a person or thing (such as "John Q. Doe is dumb"). These pages can be deleted quickly under the criteria for quick deletion. If you find an attack page, put it up for quick deletion by adding the {{qd-attack}} template to the page, and warn the user who created the page with the {{Attack}} template. Attack pages may be blanked so that other people cannot see what was written in the current version.

If the subject of the article is notable, but the current page has mostly insults against the subject of the article and there is no good version to revert back to, then the attack page should be deleted and a good article written in its place. This is important if the article is a biography of a living person.
