From WP:RfD:

  • Fanning -> Tabuaeran. Inappropriate redirect. A redirect of Fanning atoll would be all right. RickK 01:03, Mar 20, 2005 (UTC)
    • I came across an orphaned article Fanning. I saw no need for a vfd debate since it was a combination of something about Tabuaeran and something POV about the Passenger Services Act. So I redirected it and created a new Passenger Services Act stub. What is "inappropriate" about that? --Henrygb 11:13, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)
      • The problem is not with what you did, but with the fact that "fanning" is ambiguous - it's also the present participle of "fan". Hence Rick's comment about "Fanning atoll" being an OK redir. Noel (talk) 14:12, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)
        • That would not justify deletion (which leads to history loss and the possibility that someone would recreate the original page) - it would instead justify a disambiguation page.--Henrygb 17:27, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)
          • Good point. Noel (talk) 18:33, 20 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Fanning is an English Surname not Irish. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:54, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
