If the Daniel Brandt article has been deleted then why can I still see it?

Because it's been undeleted to allow yet another debate. mad.gif

The pretext cited by Zocky in the most recent action, namely, WP:Ignore All Rules, makes it clear, once and for all, that Wikipedia simply has no policies about anything.

Well, no coherent policies, anyway!

This new attempt at "breaking the logjam" by User:Zocky is interesting - and I won't lie and say it isn't an improvement, though of course I can't speak for Daniel himself. Technically it's similar to what they did for Rachel Marsden, though of course the situation was completely different - in Marsden's case they were helping her hide unpleasant aspects of her private life that she didn't want continuously exposed, whereas in Brandt's case they're trying to extend the already unending agony for everyone concerned, in the hopes that Wikipedia will eventually be destroyed completely by the actions of just one guy whom they couldn't come to terms with over a matter of principle in which they were morally in the wrong, by almost any objective criterion.

Still, it's getting some fairly broad support! So far the most offended person seems to be Mr. Jeff, who appears to be drawn unusually badly today because of the situation, even to the point of suggesting that Zocky be "recalled." Zocky, who is from Slovenia, probably should have removed that category from his user page first, and only then stubbed the Brandt article.

Must think ahead, folks!
