Why your article was deleted?

What to tell normal people who's article was deleted?

How can explain to someone what someone just decided that you are not notable?

Here is my attempt:

Why they deleted it? Well the official line is that you don't have
enough references or proof of your notability.
The problem is that wikipedia deletes too many articles, anyone can
suggest an article to be deleted and it happens quickly.
there is more on this topic here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Notability
here is someone rant on that topic:

In any case I will coach you in improving the article and if you can
collect enough references we can get it back. Also you can create an
account on wikipedia and have your article on your personal page
there. if you want to put the work into it or find someone to help you
it should be possible.


It seems that we will have much explaining like this to do to people.
