This article is a WP:BLP nightmare, basically made up of unsourced and poorly sourced allegations against living people, based largely on original research. Moreover, I don't think the subject is notable by our standards. While the case did receive attention from various reliable sources at the time (broadly 1992-4), there seems to have been very little coverage since except in fringe sources. I don't think this case has shown long-term notability, and when you combine that with the major BLP issues, deletion seems the only answer. Robofish (talk) 19:49, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

  • Comment I'm a little torn, as the event might actually pass muster if the flaws were fixed. I worked on this a little back in 2007, and Robofish was kind enough to notify me that it was going to AFD although he wasn't obligated to, but BLPs were handled differently back then. The question I have to ask is, are we wanting to delete this because of the flaws of the current article, or does it really not pass the bar for notability? If it is primarily because of BLP concerns, then I have to think this is more of a call for editing rather than deleting, but there are legitimate concerns as well. Several books were deleted after the nom [1]from the reference/links area, but I'm not sure if they were really unrelated or had mentions of this case in them. That would be good to know before a final decision was made, as it would push it passed the bar for GNG if one or more did so, but I don't know. As such, I'm not taking a stand, and will simply leave my !vote as a neutral comment for now. Dennis Brown - © 02:56, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
  • Delete, fails WP:BLP standards. That doesn't mean it could not be fixed, but we should not keep this hanging around while we gaze at our navels, it makes very serious allegations about identified individuals. Guy (Help!) 09:56, 21 June 2012 (UTC)

  • I have remove nearly all of the article content as BLP-defying innuendo. The article as nominated can be seen here. Phil Bridger (talk) 19:16, 21 June 2012 (UTC)
