Remember Gary Weiss's autobiography was nominated for deletion recently? Well, it failed. I'd link to the AfD page, but I can't. It's gone, thanks to Slim/Bo
.Jimbo was asked about it and his response
just doesn't ring true:
Deleting old discussion which contained discourteous commentary is standard practice.
That sounds fine...unusually humane, in fact, but did it require wholesale deletion? Given her maternally protective role in Gary's life, wouldn't Slim's selective deletions of 11/4 have been sufficient, without erasing record of the AfD altogether?
I googled "courtesy delete" and could only find it once in the WP context, referring to Maisonsurlagamme (translated to French by request)
, which, given how he's been treated by SV and Jayjg, was as likely to have been to protect them as Maisoney.
In either case, can anybody point to any other instance of a full page "courtesy delete" occasioned by "discourteous commentary"?
I'd assumed that Gary's continued activity on WP meant Jimbo was ignorant of his abuses. Now I know that's not the case, thereby moving Jimbo into the "complicit" category.
