That seems like an extremely petty criterion of "value." Have you
checked the contributions lists of the Bathrobe Cabal members? If all
they do is work on the Bathrobe Cabal page, sure, no big loss. But
considering they have to run the gauntlet of RfA to join the Bathrobe
Cabal that seems unlikely. Almost by definition they've had to
contribute a lot of valuable work to Wikipedia to get there.
It could however be affected if others figure out that
consistent and chuck a fuss because their Userspace pages were deleted
for the same reason that page was kept in a shortened discussion.
We could leave all harmless user subpages like this one alone,
admin-created or not. That would be a consistent approach.
