As per DYK nomination epic failure and no one seeming to understand what is going on. DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 05:32, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Comment: I don't quite understand this nomination, which is made by the article creator. If you're frustrated with the DYK review, you could simply withdraw the DYK nomination and move on. Why do you want to delete the entire article? It seems to be quite well referenced. -Zanhe (talk) 05:47, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
It’s dramatic irony. Trillfendi (talk) 06:43, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
  • Zanhe, as per DYK reasons given by other editors such as NPOV. (I am stating the reasons given by the DYK opposers as AFD reasons, and not the DYK nomination itself) Also I shouldn't have created this article since I think I have essentially twisted "used" references in a way that abides by Wikipedia policies, but not in a way that does justice to the topic at large. It is my opinion that I do not see these problems being sorted out for this particular article. DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 06:47, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
  • If the result of this AFD is keep then of course it can stay. But if it is delete it should go. If the result is keep, I will stay away from the article for at least a month since I have already been tagged for overreacting. DiplomatTesterMan (talk) 06:55, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Speedy Keep. Not a valid nomination - failing DYK is not a valid deletion rationale. Author requested deletion also seems to be out of the question since there are other contributors. The topic it self, as evident in the sources in the article, or even a cursory before - WaPo 2017, Guardian 2016, NYT 2016 is clearly notable. The article possibly could use NPOVing and the prose could also possibly be improved - but overall seems to be a decent article (I do not swim in the subject matter here - so I might be missing some big NPOV issue - however NPOV is not a deletion rationale unless this is a POVFORK - yet no forked article has been identified).

  • Speedy Keep - per not valid nom. Also article sources and basic WP:GNG.BabbaQ (talk) 08:08, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
