Re: Even Evren has some value

"...you'll note that where Bauder says "may have created" he's not opening up the possibility that it was not created and edited by Gary Weiss. Instead, he was saying that despite the fact that Weiss created and edited his own article, it should not be deleted, given Weiss's notability..."

You are interpreting in the ONE way that supports your premise. It is just as reasonable to interpret it as "EVEN IF he created". That is his true point. The article is worthy because of notability. There certainly are different ways to interpret it.

On the other hand, the Jimbo Wales comment is very direct with no ambiguity that I can see and comes several MONTHS after the one made by the admin. You've simply decided to accept ONE version of an ambiguous statement by a subordinate rather than a direct denial by one of his superiors made at a much later date. That's selection bias at its finest.

Let's also be clear about CheckUser or any software tool. It CAN detect sockpuppets pretty easily. And I AGREE that it looks like Mantanmoreland had sockpuppets. What a software tool CANNOT do is figure out WHO (real person) is using the ids. That would take a further INVESTIGATION, which is EXACTLY the word Jimbo Wales uses. All it would take is for Jimbo to contact Mantanmoreland and ascertain HIS identity. It's that simple.
