Delete[edit]

  1. He seems to me as a complete and utter nobody. His YouTube channel (that wasn't even that big to begin with) has been deleted for over a year now, and his Twitter account, from 2009, has 1,5k followers. Most of the article is also Twitter drama with quote mining. Last but not least Oliver Smith wrote a considerable part of the article, but you guys probably imagined that.

  2. RW is basically acting as a summarizer and aggregator here. I can't see how that's missional. - Immigrant laborer (talk) 15:31, 8 July 2021 (UTC)
  3. His website, "The Alternative Truth," hasn't seen a new post since March 19, 2020, and it looks like his posts (all 9 of them) are locked behind a patron paywall on SubscribeStar. If he was popular enough to warrant missionality in the past, he's now fallen into obscurity. ℕoir LeSable (talk) 15:38, 8 July 2021 (UTC)
  4. Kill it with Scorpio.gif Another altright YouTube nobody who earned his five minutes of clout from some twitter drama of yesteryear? Burn it! Who the fuck even is this guy? And why the fuck should we care? He doesn't deserve the free clout from an RW article, and as per my motto that bears repeating, we're RationalWiki, not TwitterDramaWiki. --Goatspeed.

    I could see having an article on obscure folks like these if one of their posts went viral on (esp. right-wing) social media (thus probably necessitating an analysis/debunking), but at least for Faulk here, I'm not seeing that case. ℕoir LeSable (talk) 16:00, 8 July 2021 (UTC)
  5. He was maybe missional ten years ago, and that's a stretch. He now appears to have fallen into complete obscurity. Candidate for speedy deletion. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 15:59, 8 July 2021 (UTC)

Keep[edit]

  1. I am surprised it was deleted, Faulk is quite big in the alt-right community and made some very big holocaust denial videos. Debunky (talk) 10:08, 11 July 2021 (UTC)
