I found this post, “wiki archive-5, request for assistance”, in editing.., in Wiki Archives.  Before it completely disappears into the rabbit-hole, I thought it should be copied and pasted, somewhere.  This seemed as good a spot as any:

Dr. Judy Wood has been, and will continue to be, an increasingly important and critical figure in the 9/11 Truth Movement. It is not clear how many well respected scientists such as myself will be needed to form a “significant minority” opinion that Dr. Wood merits her own biography page at Wikipedia, but please count me in, and please let me know what it is going to take to get a biography up about her at Wikipedia — one that remains up without being removed. I may be able to circulate a signature page if need be at the up and coming “Scholars for 9/11 Truth” meeting in Madison, WI, for which Dr. Judy Wood is the leading scientist and the keynote speaker, though I would hope there is significant enough data avaiable on the Internet alone to make it obvious just how influential Dr. Wood has become for this movement. 75.36.200.38 14:54, 1 August 2007 (UTC) Sincerely, H.

There are guidelines available that could help sustain an argument for retaining such an article. Consider reviewing WP:BIOWP:BLPWP:GAWP:RS, and WP:V for tips on what might be needed for such an article. —Aarktica 15:08, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Any subject must be notable with only neutral (more to that just being objective) and verifiable material. Neutrality is more achievable if the material is written be a disinterested party without COI, which may include holding strong feelings about a subject. Adrian M. H. 15:14, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
Your proposed effort to “…circulate a signature page…” may be perceived as canvassing, and many Wikipedians frown on that. —Aarktica 15:37, 1 August 2007 (UTC)
Anyone wishing to recreate the article should take a look at the deletion arguments that took place in Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Judy Wood and determine whether they can be cleared up within the guidelines above. There were some substantial issues raised with regards to her notability outside of the 9/11 Truth sphere. Tony Fox (arf!) 16:23, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Maybe just create a redirect to 9/11 Truth Movement? She’s mentioned here:

While the so-called ‘Pod’ theory asserts that the jetliners bore some sort of explosive pods, a few members such as Judy Wood and former Labor Dept. economist Morgan Reynolds are proponents of what is called ‘No Boeing’ or ‘No-plane’ theory, which asserts that jetliners were not used at all to bring the towers down, going on to accuse major media networks of complicity in a supposed plot to broadcast a computer animationor CGI plane on live television using special effects technology.

Now, I do wish someone would explain, to me, what it is Wiki has against factual evidence?  Is it the same problem, “Science”, suddenly has with reason and discernment?  Seems so, and this in particular, has dumbed-down the entire field.

This is surely worth the read:

The McMonstrosity Up the Block:

OKAY- WHAT the HECK IS That? Dressing, making,

Published on Jul 29, 2017

Ugly is the new Beautiful! Yeah; remember, “Orange is New Black?” Well, it seems the latest craze is ugly, and unattractive is the latest fad, so much so, that people think it is beautiful or inspires beauty. It doesn’t.
In this online (and outside or real-life) American society, I’ve noticed women and girls are dressing and making themselves up to appear much more unattractive than they would be. From what I understand of what they say, this is to repel men, as they believe that ALL men are terrible beings, akin to and no better than wild (prey and pack or herd) animals. This idea of dressing ugly seems to be inspired by feminists of yore, but, these, “new feminists”, seem to be missing the whole point. We did not stand up for women in order to put down men. We did it to help ourselves and our families. There is no charm in the latest fad, kids.
All the while, today’s young women (and girls) appear to be impressed with and by ugly design. Ugly colors we thought dead and buried, back in the seventies, are back, and they are IN like Flynn! The uglier it is, the more popular it is, today.
This, in my estimation, is taking UGLY-DESIGN craze much too far. It is the craze of the crazies. This building a house influenced by this FAD of ugly-design is something I am sure these home owners will live to regret. Can you imagine someone, or anyone, wishing to purchase this monstrosity in a few years? It may be, “super-cool”, today, but all fads pass, crazes are passe in no time. Surface design will not stand the tide of time or scrutiny of the discerning eye (and mind.)
It is, at this moment, a thing to laugh at, as is all art a thing to consider; it is not a thing to build, permanently. In a way it reminds me of these whole-body and/or facial tattoos, which most people regret, within in a few years. But, like tattoos, removal is going to be a lot more difficult than is the original placement. The whole, “I’m in your face so look at me”, ideology is one most people grow out of… This house will not grow with them.
Of course, it’s not mine and would never be mine, even though I do consider myself an artist and I do accept many forms of art, even those outside of the norm. This; I do not consider this art, though I am sure the new-home owners do, and their architect (or architecture student/s) obviously does…
This home seems to be the perfect example of society’s ugly and how it’s been accepted (or how some people have been deluded into accepting it) by the up and coming generation.
Either way, the architect (or architecture class?) has made a killing off of this thing. He or she or they have been adding to the project for at least a few years. I expect they are being paid(?)

In case you have not yet heard, our old friend, Patrick, aka Snordster/Snordelhans (and you can tell how long I’ve listened to that golden throat by that admission..) has lost both his home and his studio in a housefire in S.Africa.  He is at the age in which he should have retired and would be rocking back, on the porch, spying gazelles and ibis, but, as he and his wife lost everything, all must change.

He needs us to help in this effort.  I know that most of us live month-to-month, or hand-to-mouth, but if you can even donate a small amount, every bit is beneficial and I know he appreciates it.  If you did not know, back in 1998, my kids and I also lost everything (except one-another), so we know how devastating fires can be.  I cannot even imagine having to restart at the age of 63, though.  Can you?

Please watch and SHARE this video and do whatever you can do.

You can make a PayPal donation to:  Snordster@gmail.com, country:  S. Africa.  The rest will be in the video description, in YouTube.  Even if you don’t know Snordster/Patrick, please help by sharing.  Thank you!

My Home Burned Down, Snordster.
