Sorry, but that's not how I remember it.  The lengthy debate over
[[WP:SCHOOLS]] was torpedoed mainly by a small number of people who
flatly refused to consider anything other than "all schools are
inherently notable".  No merge was acceptable, no deletion was
acceptable, however atrocious the article, they stated as an article
of faith that every school merited an article.

I don't recall a *single* deletionist raising any argument that was as
dogmatic as those raised by the few militant inclusionists.
