I was the admin who deleted the Brian Peppers article after the first AFD 
(then VFD). I have looked at the two versions, both the one I deleted and the 
one Jimbo Wales deleted. They are not "substantially identical". 

The version which was AFDed back in June was a silly fake newspaper type 
report, which was just disgusting. The last version was more neutral, and 
looked a bit like an encyclopedia article.

Sorry Jimbo, but I don't agree that deleting it was an in process application 
of G4. Nonetheless, it is your prerogative to make such decisions, and I also 
agree that we probably should not have an article on the subject. If I had 
voted in any of the AFDs it would probably have been to "delete".
