Even in this case the delete is not a responsable action. The guy who does
nt wanted the article could simply add a notice in the header to inform
that "this article has few external sources, be aware of the information
you read, there is a discussion currently about that".
It is clear that the goal was to delete the article. And if you read with
attention his reasons, it would be very difficult ,see impossible, to
convince him. Just for the obvious, the existance of the 3rd in the last
month distribution. And as i said, his fantastic creteria dont match the
other distributions listed in wikipedia. Why he did nt deleted them ?
