why was it deleted? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Richard Arthur Norton (1958- ) (talkcontribs)

The original deletion log entry can be found here, if you want the admin's explanation. Daveydweeb (chat/patch) 05:20, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
The original AfD discussion should be linked to, if it indeed exists. - Nunh-huh 11:03, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Speedy Deletion[edit]

To the closing administrator: This article was tagged as {{db-repost}} per Cyde's original deletion, linked above. However, I'm fully aware that this may have been a bad decision, and have notified Cyde so that he can check on it. If this was an error, please leave a message at my admin coaching page to explain why, and what should have been done. Thank you! Daveydweeb (chat/patch) 05:22, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

Mock Duck - despite of the strange-sounging name - was a real-life tong leader and to my knowledge this article is accurate - Skysmith 08:30, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
While I'm presently unsure of the situation, this is among many of my contributions which have been deleted regarding an unspecified "sourcing problem". While I hope to get this sorted out with Administrators, I hope I would have to argue each case individually to get them restored. The specific sources used in this article were Carlo Devito's Encyclopedia of International Organized Crime (ISBN 0-8160-4848-7) (supported by a secondary source Jay Robert Nash's Encyclopedia of World Crime (ISBN 0-923582-00-2) and World Encyclopedia of Organized Crime (ISBN 0-306-80535-9) and Find-A-Grave. I would hope this would be a sufficient enough to at least establish his notability. MadMax 10:58, 5 November 2006 (UTC)

I think this whole thing was a big misunderstanding. Basically from what I can see, it is the source, ie, Jay Robert Nash, which is in question. In this case, db-repost was not correct. As the original action was both not a "speedy deletion" and not an "in-process" deletion, it should have been referred back to the deleting admin for a statement. The AfD never needed to happen. I know this has not been concluded, but Jay Robert Nash and User talk:Cyde#Mock Duck may give some temporary closure to the situation. Ansell 22:49, 5 November 2006 (UTC)
