Non-notable person, they founded a non-notable hospital, but fail WP:GNG and WP:BIO. In addition, this bio is pretty promotional too- I've tried cleaning it up, but it's still promotional, and the COI editor keeps trying to repromotionalise it. Joseph2302 (talk) 01:30, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete - No evidence of notability, founding a small hospital in a small town is not enough to make someone notable. Fyddlestix (talk) 01:38, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

--Savoy209 (talk) 02:05, 30 May 2015 (UTC)There is plenty of evidence of notability.The article is not promotional nor do I have a bias towards the subject because of my profile name. If it would help,I could easily make a new page with another account so the name would be different as I do not want there to be a COI issue. I was also not aware that I was deleting and re editing some of the changes that have been made by you guys.Once again,I apologize and am trying very hard to be compliant. --Savoy209 (talk) 02:22, 30 May 2015 (UTC)Also,I can understand that my article needs more citations for a verification but "Article is written like an advertisement",really?I would appreciate it if you guys would allow me to make my own edits to my own article and after I'm done you can tell me exactly what needs to be fixed and taken out because after the previous deletions from "Savoy Medical Center" and "Savoy Memorial Hospital",the article was nearly unrecognizable.You guys might not think so but to the people of Evangeline Parish and all of Louisiana. I'm not blowing the claims about the subject out of proportion either. Bare with me,it took me along time to make that article. --Savoy209 (talk) 02:39, 30 May 2015 (UTC)and just because you weren't able to find any "notable" evidence of high notoriety online doesn't mean that the subject isn't a notable person.Just ask any person from Evangeline Parish or St.Landry Parish.Not that you can anyway.Just hear me out,listen to where I'm coming from.Please take some time to rethink your claims and the deletion notices that are on my article.Please do not take action to delete it,please.Thank you.

Savoy209, the article isn't "[your] own article" it is Wikipedia's article one you click submit, and anyone and everyone is free to edit it. I posted some samples of what I considered promotional languge on the talk page when I applied the "advert" tag.If you can provide published reliable sources about Dr Savoy, please do so. This discussion will be open for at elast 7 days, and offline sources such as newspapers are acceptable. "Ask any person" is not helpful, however. DES (talk) 02:43, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Savoy209, Do please read our guideline on reliable sources to better understand what sort of sources are considered reliable. On images, please remember that they should be in the public domain or released under a compaltely free license. Well some are used under fair use, but Wikipedias conditions for that are tight. In any case, images don't do much to establish notability, published text sources are usually more important. DES (talk) 06:04, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Comment I have no opinion as to whether this article should be deleted. However, if it is kept it will need to be moved to Frank P. Savoy Jr. per MOS:TITLE and MOS:CREDENTIAL, honorific and professional credentials should not be included in the title or body of the article before the subjects name. You can, however, discuss these credentials within the article. -War wizard90 (talk) 04:49, 30 May 2015 (UTC)
  • I agree, I would have moved it, but it's not worth moving it if it's going to get deleted. Joseph2302 (talk) 10:46, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete Their only claims of notability are that they were the "first recorded woman physician and surgeon in America" and "founder of Northampton, Massachusetts"- neither of these has a reference.

  • Delete for lack of verification and the extraordinary claim. The period being discussed is one without "physician surgeons" in general. Surgery was still generally done by the "barber surgeons" before the Civil War. Physicians were still generally medical and avoided surgery. This is even excepting the gender problem, which would have been tougher in that field than nearly any other. Also, umm, isn't this locating her in Virginia Dare territory?

Very possible SPAM or hoax. Article contains no sourced content, makes claims regarding an oral cancer test which is linked to commercial promotional site (part constructed). Similarly strong claims re past business experience of subject. Article was created by, and is largely edited by, what appears to have been since 2006 a single purpose account [3]. Delete.Pincrete (talk) 15:36, 23 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete I don't think it is a hoax. There appears to be some evidence for his existence such as this 8-K form and this TEDx talk, but neither of those sources establish notability. Nothing I found could reliably verify the claims made in this article or assert his notability, so delete per WP:BIO. A note to other participants, because this article is nearly nine years old, there is a very high amount of information sourced from Wikipedia out there so beware of circular referencing. Winner 42 Talk to me! 19:49, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
I wasn't doubting his existence. I meant that claims about achievements are possibly hoax. As you note, this article seems to have been here for a long time. I found it by accident as a result of trying to find out about 'Paysafe' internet payment technology, which the article claims Dennis Charter invented. 'Paysafe', turns out to be the name of a genuine 'smart' payment card in the Phillipines, but was also used as the name for a payment service used by a major internet scam. I have no reason to connect Dennis Charter to that scam of course, but there seems to be little reason to connect him to any genuine online payment technologies.Pincrete (talk) 20:19, 23 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete - I believe a major factor why this article was started was partially for promotion as this is the first edit and at some point had several links to various people here but then actually added better references here.

  • Keep despite the presence of numerous unsupported claims in the article - many are still left in – the subject is notable in his business dealings. This includes a criminal conviction for "improperly diverting a cheque for $402,500." and nine months jail time. I have expanded the article and supplied references for some information, someone else should go through and trim back more of the unsupported contentious claims and the NPoV description of much of his career.shaidar cuebiyar (talk) 15:05, 25 May 2015 (UTC)

Comment Each piece of evidence Rhododendrites provides actually shows subject is below PROF threshold:
  • Subject does not hold a named chair; department chairships do not meet PROF. (And the school in question is not accredited?)
  • Subject does not have a national/international award. Local/regional awards do not meet PROF.
  • Subject does not hold a position as editor of a scholarly journal. Memberships on editorial boards do not meet PROF.
  • The European Committee of Sexual Medicine is not a "highly selective and prestigious scholarly society." All I could find about that group was from their own website http://www.essm.org/society/about-essm.html : "In 1994 in Singapore, during the ISIR (now ISSM) Annual Congress, the ESIR (European Society for Impotence Research) idea was born as the European development of the International Society for Impotence Research." Not a group one can really compare to IEEE, etc. The only other hits to that term are from third-world physicians putting it on their websites.
  • The college of physicians is a professional advocacy group, not a scholarly society.
The accomplishments listed are all well and good, but do not meet PROF.Barcaboy2 (talk) 09:12, 27 May 2015 (UTC)

As far as I could see, using ALL of the aids above, they DON'T exist. Many of the refs currently used, which create the impression of an RS article, do not support the text they are attached to. It would help to come to a fair assessment if the text were cleaned up such that it accurately represented what sources really say about Mr Moser, because MAYBE one or two do support SOME of the text, but the available evidence does not support notability of the subject.Pincrete (talk) 19:55, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

Note to closing admin: Two of the keep !votes here were either from single-purpose accounts or sockpuppets.

  • Keep. BLP1E doesn't apply, since the alleged abuse has been going on for nearly 40 years (according to Sarris), and Schneider has had brushes with the law before (including once in 2000). FiredanceThroughTheNight (talk) 17:46, 21 May 2015 (UTC)
Note to closing admin: FiredanceThroughTheNight (talkcontribs) is the creator of the page that is the subject of this AfD.
  • Delete. NOTNEWS really applies here. It is admittedly serious if a dentist has performed unnecessary procedures on children (especially if it is extraction of permanent teeth). Careful investigation, proof that this has taken place, would be useful. The international media has whipped up a firestorm of rumor and innuendo, though, about one dentist, including a phone video of a child apparently screaming in a dentist chair. Some complaints are that he capped teeth that should have been pulled, others that he pulled teeth that should have been capped. It is possible that he's looked after poor children who had not properly seen a dentist, who had teeth in more poor condition than a non-medicaid dentist. There are many many incompetent professionals, it is alarming that while nothing is proven about this particular one (though it is likely he is incompetent or unethical) a small case has blown up to an international news story with many confusing and contradictory accusations arising suddenly. A tabloid newspaper can just join the rumor mill. Wikipedia can be more thoughtful.Createangelos (talk) 23:53, 24 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Comment: There are a great deal of sources available speaking toward this individual's many-years-long series of alleged multiple and repeated crimes, but under WP:PERPETRATOR we need tread lightly. The historic significance of the crimes is indicated by persistent coverage of the event in reliable secondary sources that devote significant attention to the individual's role, and we have those in spade. WP:BLP1E is less applicable as we have coverage of the years long and repeated accusations of the different offenses of 1) alleged "Medicaid fraud" and 2) alleged "child abuse". BUT a person who is known only in connection with a criminal event or trial should not normally be the subject of a separate Wikipedia article if there is an existing article that could incorporate the available encyclopedic material relating to that person. Is there such an article? Schmidt, Michael Q. 10:11, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
    • Not currently. But it might be possible to rename this article and change the focus to refer to Schneider's alleged crimes rather than Schneider himself. Perhaps the article could be called Jacksonville dental abuse scandal or something like that. FiredanceThroughTheNight (talk) 13:26, 22 May 2015 (UTC)
      • We can't write an article about his "crimes" at this time, because none of them are verified. Everything is "alleged" and "accused". --MelanieN (talk) 13:09, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Keep even though the article is almost wholly negative, it's well-sourced, and the sources show significant coverage over a long time period. Should it be moved to Howard Schneider (dentist) though? The word Florida seems unnecessarily specific. Joseph2302 (talk) 11:30, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
    • There is another practicing dentist by the name Howard Schneider, who lives in New York. Many people have gotten the two mixed up, and the Dr. Schneider in New York has received hate mail and threats from people confusing him with the Florida dentist, so I thought it best to clarify in the title that this article was about the Florida dentist, not the New York one. FiredanceThroughTheNight (talk) 15:18, 25 May 2015 (UTC)
      • Actually the sources DON'T show "coverage over a long time period". All the sources are from May 2015. --MelanieN (talk) 13:16, 29 May 2015 (UTC)

  • Delete It is alleged that the abuse goes back many years, but all of this is being reported only in the last week, so it's BP1E and/or TOOSOON. EEng (talk) 04:53, 27 May 2015 (UTC)
  • If this happens to be one of those "wikipedia not being news" cases, close the article down for now, and wait to remake the article until the dentist gets enough coverage to be more than just a news article. It'll be interesting to see where the backstory of this evil scumbag will go. Seriously, stay the hell away from that dentist. 和DITOREtails 00:31, 28 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Strong Delete Violates WP:BLP and WP:PERP. Everything is "alleged" or "accused". None of the allegations against him have been proven, they are just allegations - apparently most of them filed by plaintiffs in civil suits; if ever there was an unreliable source, it is the claims made in a civil suit! Others are complaints of child abuse - complaints which anyone can make, justified or not, and the authorities must investigate. If he ever gets actually convicted of anything, we can rewrite the article. In the meantime, it is a mess of unverified claims and innuendo, and should have no place at Wikipedia. --MelanieN (talk) 03:03, 29 May 2015 (UTC)
  • Delete. If WP:NOTNEWS or WP:BLP isn't enough, then I'm happy to go with WP:IAR. We're an encyclopedia. We're not a tabloid, and we're not a police blotter. -- RoySmith (talk) 18:01, 30 May 2015 (UTC)

Found this expired prod and thought it could use more views. Prod rationale was "Entirely unsourced article with no sign of sources for well over a year" - but, well, WP:NOEFFORT.

The article was created by has been extensively edited by an SPA who's made strange posts complaining about a conspiracy of podiatrists. The term appears to be used primarily in the UK and Ireland. Google does turn up apparent registries, professional associations, courses, etc., but it's unclear if this is actually notable despite the sorry state of the article, or just weird crankery.
