So, [[Bubbles the Clown]] was nominated by an editor who had been
editing for less than 36 hours, [[Katie Hopkins]] by an editor who has
been editing for less than 30 days,  plus we're apparently the type of
encyclopedia that has to question whether Rock Climbing and Chess
Strategies are notable.

Interesting.  But, really, something is going on in AfD.  These are
sock puppet accounts created by beligerant AfD deletionists who have
been caught out on various things--like probably the editor who
deleted stuff from an article then nominated it for deletion based
upon what he'd deleted not being there, is back.

I still think it's a secret contest.
