Even though creating articles without logging in has
for months now? How is this possible? Do the few articles made
through [[Wikipedia:Articles for creation]] get nominated to AfD so
Oops I apologise to you and am just going to have to look stupid.
I am clearly way behind the times. Bit stupid of me to call someone
arrogant when it was me being arrogant to assume I knew it all!

No, actually, I'm not. Thanks for asking, though.
In fact, many
contributors to AfD'd articles *do* get involved in AfD, and many
articles listed at AfD *are* kept, already. As for my personal views,
I'm quite a strong inclusionist, myself.
Sorry that was me flying off the handle when I shouldn't have done,
as a result of the watchlist thing. I aplogise.
Yes contributors do get involved in some AfDs. And for me they tend
to be the most useful AfDs because some content often gets redistributed
that would otherwise been deleted. But you would have thought that they would
get involved in almost all discussions.
Given the existence of automated listing tools, adding a note to
a creator's talk page might not be a heavy burden and can only
be helpful for those who are not heavy watchlist users.
