James Thompson | Result: keep[edit]

James Thompson (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. I suggest deleting and merging some of article to London Conference on Intelligence like the other deletion requests I made - article is too short and just mostly mentions about his LCoI activities. Thompson was the organiser of the conferences. Aeschylus (talk) 05:31, 7 February 2019 (UTC)


  1. James Thompson is a prominent hereditarian. I thought this site existed to document crankery, such as people who believe IQ is affected by DNA differences. When was "too short" an objection? Radiant Orb (talk) 16:30, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  2. Mass nominating participants in that conference on the basis of that being "the only thing in their article" when their articles, in fact, contain other things is really quite annoying. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:34, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  3. Also sexist and racist tweets, as mentioned in article. Plainly missional, and if anyone can be bothered reading more of his tweets or other texts then I'm sure there's much more that could be added. (As an aside, I know RW isn't Wikipedia but it still has procedures and if you want to merge an article then there is a procedure for that, and it doesn't involve deleting it first.) --Annanoon (talk) 17:49, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  4. Keep it. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 14:29, 8 February 2019 (UTC)
  5. Keep. This seems to be an attempted mass delete by Aeschylus because of a legal threat. Correct me if I'm wrong, @Aeschylus.Bongolian (talk) 00:41, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  6. If writing about racist dickheads is causing problems for a certain user, that particular user should stop doing it. But that's no reason why the articles that already exist should be deleted. Spud (talk) 05:59, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
