Michael A. Woodley of Menie (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. Vast majority of article is his London Conference on Intelligence involvement that is covered on main LCoI article; doesn't need two articles. Has apparently claimed article is a character assassination, compare for example to his Wikipedia entry: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_A._Woodley_of_Menie,_Yr. IMO some of the criticism such in relation to LCoI is perfectly valid, so I suggest delete and merge a small section to LCoI article. Aeschylus (talk) 15:30, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
That's not a link to a valid Wikipedia entry. Could you try proof-reading your posts and testing your links? --Annanoon (talk) 17:52, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
@Annanoon The full stop at the end of the link is part of it, try wikipedia:Michael A. Woodley of Menie, Yr. instead. FYI this is why people should always use [ ] characters to enclose urls. NekoDysk 18:09, 7 February 2019 (UTC)


  1. If it's got things wrong, list them or fix them. It's not a bad article in terms of writing, citations, and missionality. I'm aware of the possibility of flagrant misrepresentation, and we should absolutely be made aware of any specifics, but "he says it's a hit piece" describes hundreds of peoples' responses to their RW articles. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:00, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  2. Seems relevant beyond the one thing, no real reason or need to delete. NekoDysk 16:07, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
  3. Why does Aeschylus‎ want to delete all of the articles on these cranks? It seems like a sabotage attempt. Radiant Orb (talk) 16:34, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
    Eh, benefit of the doubt would say that they think articles for each individual nutter from the London Conference isn't worth going into. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 19:22, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
    Yeah, may we please assume good faith here? The "sabotage" accusation is uncalled for. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 22:39, 7 February 2019 (UTC)
    It's more likely that Aeschylus came under legal threat. Bongolian (talk) 02:33, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  4. Keep. Bongolian (talk) 02:33, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
  5. 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 shod be deleted. Spud (talk) 06:08, 12 February 2019 (UTC)
