Okay, before we get too carried away here, let's remember what Ms. Marsden actually wrote on her own ArbCom page.
I kindly request that this article about me be removed and, in the future, should another article be created about me, that the contributors stick to the documented facts about my career and life.
It's hardly unequivocal, isn't it? It's clear she doesn't want the article removed for privacy
reasons, because then she wouldn't have added the qualifying statement ("should another article be created," etc.).
So, in effect, she wants the article deleted - presumably along with the unpleasant revision history - but then she apparently wouldn't mind a new
article, without the nasty revisions visible to all, some time later on - and presumably under the ever-watchful eye of Slimmy & Co.
Personally, I (and many others here, I suspect) would get totally on her side
if she were to change her mind, and forcefully and unequivocally state that she doesn't want an article about her on Wikipedia at all, ever, and no foolin' around. (I'd support the removal of this discussion thread too, FWIW - call me the mean ol' censorship guy if you must...)
But where there's smoke there's fire, and there's something about this woman that makes me somewhat skeptical.
