Some guy who uses the name skeptic from britain has approached wikipedia and asked for Dr Malcolm Kendricks page be removed. at the moment its says it is under review to check if any rules have been breached.

Personally I think it’s disgusting that one person can do this and I would like to challenge it if I knew how.

This is the page of arguments for/against... totally utterly confusing.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Articles_for_deletion/Malcolm_KendrickI haven't heard mention of sock puppets since the old newsgroup days!

Very sad:

The result was delete. Closing early due to the sockfest and disruption. Consensus, based on far more opinions than most AfDs and ignoring the solicited "votes of editors with little or no other history, is abundantly clear. Only two editors with non-trivial history advocate Keep, and the basis of these arguments is poor (example: number of search its is an indication that reliable independent sources may well exist, but none have been provided). In the end, this person would not pass any of the relevant subject-specific notability guidelines, and does not pass GNG, as noted by several experienced !voters.
