|A fact from Second wind (sleep) appeared on Wikipedia's Main Page in the Did you know? column on 23 October 2014 (check views). The text of the entry was as follows: "Did you know
A few weeks ago, this article was deleted. Now it is back, and it has not been improved. I feel that the article should be deleted.
- "Second wind" might merit a dictionary entry, but not an encyclopedia entry.
- I can't see that the following sentence is supported by the sources: "This difficulty to fall asleep is believed to be a survival mechanism related to the flight or fight response, which can make those with a second wind susceptible to panic attacks."
- Half or more of the article is about sleep hygiene, which has its own article and doesn't need repeating here.
- The sources are 3 websites, not reliable sources, and pages from one book which are entirely about sleep hygiene. (The book pages are online.)
- The article seems unserious, addressing itself directly to "you".
- Admin Fastily said I could re-prod this article (on Fastily's talk page 21:32, 27 November 2011 (UTC)). Another user says I cannot (see edit summary).
- Thus I am removing the unsupported sentence. I am also removing the redundant paragraph with its reference; this article does not need to repeat what the linked article sleep hygiene says. --Hordaland (talk) 19:17, 29 November 2011 (UTC)
- I was hoping that by starting a stub back would pave the way for other editors to contribute. Sad how fours years after I started the stub, it appeared to have shrunk instead. Guess sometimes the only way to get things done in Wiki is to write it yourself. *Waves wand* There! The article has been de-stubbified! Shall we now agree that this topic is more than a dictionary entry? —CodeHydro 21:56, 11 September 2014 (UTC)
