My username comes from the fact that I am a player of Launchball.

A bit about me: I'm Thomas Michael William Patrick Sales. I'm 18 years old[1], and I attend Overton Grange School as a sixth former[1]. I live in Churchill Road[2], North Cheam,[3] and have been diagnosed with Asperger syndrome[1] and am on the special needs register; despite being of above average intelligence, I find it difficult to communicate, form social relationships and play creatively.[4] I am a Freeman of the City of London[1], member of the Royal Society of St. George[1] and am armigerous[1]. I was born to Jane Suzanne[5] Sales (née Southcott, 1 October 1963 - 26 January 2014)[5] and Lieutenant Commander Sir Michael Patrick Sales.[6] I have a sister, Genefer, who is a carer for me and my parents[7] and represented London at the 9th Pride of Britain Awards.[8]

My editorial opinions: I am a staunch inclusionist. It's my belief that if someone has spent many hours on an article (MC Kinky took well over 24 hours of on-Wiki time), can back up its importance or significance and does not have a conflict of interest, then it's deserving of an article on Wikipedia. Which brings me on to my next point; people who request that their articles be removed from Wikipedia. Absolutely disgusting in my opinion. There are only so many editors on Wikipedia and very few editors who can create articles - about 80% of contributions are made by IPs. As such, there are stringent notability rules. If one of our folks has taken time out of their life to write an article about you, they think - rightly or wrongly - that you're notable. To blank it is the Wiki equivalent of chucking a can of paint at a rosebush in my opinion, and as such I am incredibly blunt when dealing with such celebrities. That said, I do take the view that AfD, despite this, often results in some amount of cleanup being done (my AfD nomination for List of works about Julian Assange resulted in this being done to the article); thus even if it gets kept, if the creator is still active it sends them an instruction. The threat of deletion of Going Left Right (see this) resulted in me expanding it to DYK level, for example. In many cases someone can just point out how mistaken I am and can withdraw, but simply knowing that an article is being considered for deletion is enough to spur some editors on to expand.

Those who write articles about themselves I can fully sympathise with; after all, if I became notable I'd write mine. Neutrally, of course, but I'd write it and add everything I could source. If you're going to write it, however, please be prepared to take any flack you receive as a result. Please don't stop others from adding to it. And as for those who ask for an article about themselves that they have written to be deleted, grow up. You entered the spotlight, you exit it.

Oh, and I don't like empty threats either, legal or otherwise. If you want to do something, do it. Get it out of your system, and then we can talk about it.
