If someone is real-world notable and we can back it
up, I don't see how
Wikipedia notability would be any different.
Because Wikipedia notability, in many people's minds, needs more than
simply "backing it up." Society's idea of notable is fluid and depends on
what you're talking about - Wikipedia's got a small but vocal number of
people who feel notability is constant and defined only by who says as
It's why there needs to be a distinction - "not so notable" or
notability" is a false concept that only exists in that small but vocal
group. It has little in the way of a basis in reality, and is not defined
by anything that is logical.
If you can read this, I'm not at home.
