What again?

I have contributed to Wikipedia since 2006 and have been an admin since the middle of 2007 with a couple of long breaks due to on and off-wiki stress. Historically I have worked mostly on deletion discussions and at one time was one of the most prolific AFD closers. From November 2012 to early 2014 I closed most DRVs but am no longer very active there. I am a strong proponent of applying the GNG to article content - especially for BLPs.

I am mostly inactive now. If you have a question or a request don't be surprised if there is a delay for an answer. I have no problems with you asking another admin on my behalf.

Daniel Margotta[edit]

Hi Spartaz! It seems that you are the closing administrator for the article Daniel Margotta. I want to discuss the deletion process that occur in this article. I feel that consensus was not reach during the process. I kindly ask to undelete it or we can bring to deletion review. Cheers! --Janbryan (talk) 18:28, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Can you tell me on what basis you think this should be restored? Consensus looks pretty solid to me. By the way, has anyone paid you to pursue this? Spartaz Humbug! 20:09, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
Last time I checked, the vote was 2-2. Two votes each for delete and not delete. FYI, I was not paid to pursue this and I was just curious how the process turned out. Cheers! --Janbryan (talk) 22:18, 31 August 2015 (UTC)
so this recent advert for a paid editor to do a puff piece has no bearing on why you suddenly decided to look at an article outside your usual sphere of editing? What sources has your paymaster given you to tout? Spartaz Humbug! 22:19, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
