The idea is to test the speedy deletion process with articles that
shouldn't be speedy deleted.
Links to several of the articles in the process and their fates have
been posted to
But at present it is skewed towards the ones tagged for deletion,
there are others as yet unpatrolled that won't be disclosed until they
have faced the people who patrol the back end of the unpatrolled

I want to personally look at the articles and
responses in more depth
before I comment more, but this has been exceptionally valuable
Yes, can you please post the usernames and the articles that were
created? If some were speedied, do you have the original text?
Obviously we shouldn't be having an "omg rampant speedyism" debate if
the articles were actually speedyable...
