Speedy deletion of page

In view the recent award of an OBE to Mrs. Power, some of the comments below look abusive, personal and inappropriate. I would not recommend deletion.

I will make the changes that you ask for. Please allow me a few days to gather the relevant information and to rewrite the text in an appropriate manner. Thank you. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Alexpmuller (talkcontribs) 22:23, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

Speedy deletion of page

I am a little surprised that this article has been marked for speedy deletion. Mrs Power is well known in the UK as an internet entrepreneur. For example she several articles written about her every month (please see the website She is also a noted author and speaker.

Her social network, Ecadamy, ( is well established and often compared to LinkedIn.

Many internet entrepreneurs are on Wikipedia, I list here those that have a similar level of impact as Ecadamy:

Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn), Kevin Rose (Digg), Aaron Swartz (Reddit), Jack Dorsey (Twitter), Chris DeWolfe (MySpace)

Mrs Power also lectures to students at university providing guidance to aspiring business entrepreneurs.

I do note that Wikipedia does not have a page on Ecadamy either. If this page is retained I will write a page for Ecadamy also.

I didn't quite understand the meaning of the request 'please use a more specific template' this appears to be a template for a deletion not for a person article? Please could you explain, I would be happy to alter the article to make it more suitable? If you have any suggestions how I could improve the article I would be pleased to do that

(P.S. I have no relationship with Mrs Power what so ever, I am not a relative, business associate or friend)

Okay. I agree with the proposal for deletion. Mrs Power is a self-publicising non-entity. There isn't even a wikipedia page for the network (which the above defender can't even spell correctly!)

To compare Power with the creators of Twitter is laughable. If this page stays, then the old Ecademy page, including all the scandal of banning established members for disagreeing with Mrs Power, should be reinstated. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:07, 21 May 2011 (UTC)

I also think this meet the criteria for deletion because the lack of notability. --Thelle Kristensen 16:33, 6 December 2011 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Thelle (talkcontribs)
