should be made--by compromise and shift of consensus at AfD. The one
who said hell no still say hell no, but consensus no longer follows
that. See a current one (July 9) at

As one of the inclusionists willing to compromise
on this issue, I
object to that. There were plenty enough people in the middle for a
compromise to work. The rhetoric from the extremist-seeming
deletionists sunk the various compromise attempts time and time again.
Sorry, but that's not how I remember it. The lengthy debate over
[[WP:SCHOOLS]] was torpedoed mainly by a small number of people who
flatly refused to consider anything other than "all schools are
inherently notable". No merge was acceptable, no deletion was
acceptable, however atrocious the article, they stated as an article
of faith that every school merited an article.
I don't recall a *single* deletionist raising any argument that was as
dogmatic as those raised by the few militant inclusionists.
