Speedy deletion of DDY[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

A tag has been placed on DDY requesting that it be speedily deleted from Wikipedia. This has been done under section A1 of the criteria for speedy deletion, because it is a very short article providing little or no context to the reader. Please see Wikipedia:Stub for our minimum information standards for short articles. Also please note that articles must be on notable subjects and should provide references to reliable sources that verify their content.

If you think that this notice was placed here in error, you may contest the deletion by adding {{hangon}} to the top of the page (just below the existing speedy deletion or "db" tag), coupled with adding a note on the talk page explaining your position, but be aware that once tagged for speedy deletion, if the article meets the criterion it may be deleted without delay. Please do not remove the speedy deletion tag yourself, but don't hesitate to add information to the article that would would render it more in conformance with Wikipedia's policies and guidelines.

Intergrated Property Investments Ltd[edit]

It's a copyvio from, so there's no way it can be kept in the current version. Corvus cornixtalk 02:26, 15 May 2008 (UTC)

Glad to hear it; I thought it was garbage anyway.Simplebutpowerful 21:46, 15 May 2008 (UTC)



I will answer all of your questions on the talk page of the article in question. In the meantime, please take note that people generally do not appreciate being called idiots.Simplebutpowerful 16:21, 11 October 2008 (UTC)

Please stop interfering with scalar implicature[edit]

If you want to put the 'nonsense' tag on, please give a coherent reason why. Several other linguists have agreed the article makes perfect sense. Thank you. Americanlinguist (talk) 18:50, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

I had only restored the db tag because the creator of the page had removed it. I believe I stated that at the talk page of the article in question. Now that an administrator has declined the speedy deletion ("obviously"), I will not put the same db tag back onto the article.Simplebutpowerful 21:51, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Why did you put it back on in view of the fact that several editors had already been working on the article? Americanlinguist (talk) 22:12, 26 October 2008 (UTC)

Look, you inappropriately removed the db tag from the article in the first place by replacing it with the hangon tag. If you create an article, you are not allowed to remove a speedy deletion tag from the article. I saw that you had removed it and merely restored it, allowing those with authority to decide whether the article deserved to be speedily deleted. Like I said, now that an administrator has declined the speedy deletion, I am satisfied. I apologize if I have offended you in any way through my actions, but I was simply doing what I believed was proper.Simplebutpowerful 19:38, 27 October 2008 (UTC)

Ahem. Just a small comment: this is what we call process-wonkery. It doesn't make much sense to restore a speedy tag unless you yourself are convinced the page should be deleted. Think of it this way: Formally, the author may not have been entitled to remove the tag. But you and everybody else were. Read what the tag says: apart from the creator, anybody, not just an admin, is entitled to make the judgement that a tag is unjustified, and remove it. Seeing that he had removed it, you could have used your good judgment and common sense and do exactly what I later did: endorse the removal by silently ignoring it. That way, it would have been as good as if you had made the removal yourself, and all would have been well. You see, simple but powerful. Fut.Perf. 18:48, 28 October 2008 (UTC)

Oh. Sorry, my bad. Thanks for letting me know; I had not heard of this "process wonkery". I'll be sure to keep it in mind for the future. By the way, my name is one word (Simplebutpowerful), not three separate words, for future reference.Simplebutpowerful 23:17, 28 October 2008 (UTC)
