Here’s a weird twist on the ongoing temper tantrum. There was a very brief attempt to flag Brad Torgersen’s Wikipedia page as being not notable (see: https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Brad_R._Torgersen&diff=907713026&oldid=907687297 ). The attempt was slapped down by Wikipedia editors fairly promptly for the obvious reason that Brad may not be the sharpest knife in the drawer but he’s got a pile of evidence of notability.
On Facebook Brad is claiming victim status:
“I’ve been alerted to the fact that digital vandals of a distinctly “woke” persuasion have been trying to get my Wikipedia listing deleted for being (and I quote) Not A Notable Author.”
I suppose it’s not a huge leap to assume the politics of somebody trying to downgrade Brad’s page might be on the left except…well it was from an IP address account without much of a trail targetting an account that was very unlikely to be deleted*. And here’s another thing…shortly before this attempt was made on Brad’s page, Michael Z Williamson ‘predicted’ it would happen on his own Facebook page [archive link].
Notably, experienced editors dealing with the various cases of harassment and sockpuppetry from Williamson’s supporters over his page deletion argument, far from targetting Brad’s page were arguing for his (and John Ringo’s) page to be protected [see comment time stamped at 15:13, 24 July 2019 (UTC) here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Administrators%27_noticeboard/Incidents#Long-term_sockpuppetry_at_AFD ]
Notably, Williamson is also boasting that he called in advance the other ‘targets’ of deletion: Tom Kratman and Sarah Hoyt. This appears to be true and interestingly in the order that the events happened. Curious.
Both Williamson and Kratman had weak pages and as has been discussed their notability genuinely is not straightforward to establish against Wikipedia’s guidelines. Sarah Hoyt’s though was stronger (although her page is puffed up) and Torgersen is straight forwardly notable. If some leftist was on a crusade against puppy author pages there are easier targets [not going to point them out].
