Propose deletion[edit]

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.

  1. "Second wind" might merit a dictionary entry, but not an encyclopedia entry.
  2. 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."
  3. Half or more of the article is about sleep hygiene, which has its own article and doesn't need repeating here.
  4. The sources are 3 websites, not reliable sources, and pages from one book which are entirely about sleep hygiene. (The book pages are online.)
  5. 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)
