Not true - the previous information was, my understanding is, made
under a username.
In addition, the problem is often with material

Yes. All the same, deletion of accurate material is unfortunate. We
need to aspire to a level of sensibleness in demanding sources and
especially in removing material. An article that is accurate but
lacks sources is an article in need of sources, not an article in
need of gutting.
