Jussi, the Metapedia site was deleted because it has
recieved little to none
English-language coverage in reliable sources. Just because it's a wiki
doesn't make it notable enough for encyclopedic treatment. Personally I
think the site is covered under WP:FRINGE, and that as such a comprehensive
encyclopedic article would be lending importance to this quack venture that
simply doesn't exist.
I won't address the main substance of your argument, because when it
comes down to it, on these things we have to all make our own
determinations, and me saying that you are not entitled to yours,
would be as bad as you saying I am not entitled to mine.
Purely out of curiosity, since I have seen it mentioned in numerous
other instances, wherein does the requirement for coverage to
be in the English language stem from? Or are you saying that that
is the just way things happen in the real world? That regrettable as
it is, Swedish language media coverage and legal investigation by
a cabinet level official do not bestow notability, because neither
the government in question speaks english, nor the media either.
