the article in question (i.e. not the very early one) has
come out somewhere near a deadlock. The most I've seen in favor of
deleting is something like 60-65%, which is nowhere near the consensus
to delete typically required on AfD.
Were these votes on the basis of content or subject?
Sorry to keep on harping on, but it's a pretty important question, and
most of these arguments seem to completely blur the line.
Since most people don't explicitly give their reasoning in their votes,
it's hard to say. I would assert that most of the original "delete"
votes were based on content, not subject, which is why once the content
improved, the percentage of "delete" votes dwindled.
But this, among other reasons, is why we need to get rid of AfD and DRV
in the first place. "Non-notability" is often a red herring used by
people to delete articles with which they have an ideological disagreement.
