Robert Plomin (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. stub article of very few lines and poor quality. Seems to have also been created by a troll account who made problematic edits and has had other article creations deleted. @2603:9001:300:81A:ED99:53D6:6B41:11A3 has made a complaint on talk page and requested for the article deletion Ernor (talk) 16:20, 8 April 2023 (UTC)
-> there are allegations on social media this article was written as a parody. Plomin obviously isn't "alt-right" yet that is on his category box. The opening line description is also inaccurate. Ernor (talk) 16:32, 8 April 2023 (UTC)


  1. Robert Plomin is a signatory to Mainstream Science on IntelligenceWikipedia, so I don't see how this is supposed to have been written as a satirical article. The line "Plomin practices racial inexplicitness, the tactic of advancing racist policies without directly mentioning race" reminds me of HBD type stuff, that's probably what it's referring to.

    it's only 4 lines and if you view talk page you see constant complaints. Is it worth keeping? Ernor (talk) 14:53, 14 April 2023 (UTC)
    "The article is short" and "some people aren't happy with its past versions" aren't reasons to delete it. Your opening arguments are somewhat familiar. Chillpilled (talk) 17:36, 17 April 2023 (UTC)
  2. Siding with Chillpilled. Most of the complains are from BoNs and 90% of those are always complaining about the same shit. Arcadium Trancefer (talk) 09:23, 19 April 2023 (UTC)
