For anyone who still cares, the deletion discussion for Ira Brad Matetsky aka NewYorkBrad has been extended. Obviously there are not quite enough “keep” votes to come up with the “right” answer yet, which is now evidently “keep”.
And sure enough, suddenly someone remembers an old essay about interviews written by Mr. Stradivarius that never got written into the policy page, and adds a “keep” vote.
The deletion discussion was extended by one User:Randykitty. Now where have we heard that name before? Why, I do believe this is Headbomb’s old sidekick, the admin who tag-teamed with him against the women philosophy journals. (see Attack on women philosophers)
Randykitty’s user page has a prominent link to a blog claiming Randy kitty’s edits are being used to promote Jeffrey Beall,
a critic of the whose Wikipedia article falsely claims is “a critic of the open access publishing movement”.
Pro tip: if you want more obscure page hits for NYB, google “Ira Matesky” without the second “t”, it’s a common mispelling on comment threads and even court cases. Might make a good redirect.
