Wikipedia:WikiProject Deletion sorting/Judaism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This is a collection of discussions on the deletion of articles related to Judaism. It is one of many deletion lists coordinated by WikiProject Deletion sorting. Anyone can help maintain the list on this page.

Adding a new AfD discussion
Adding an AfD to this page does not add it to the main page at WP:AFD. Similarly, removing an AfD from this page does not remove it from the main page at WP:AFD. If you want to nominate an article for deletion, go through the process on that page before adding it to this page. To add a discussion to this page, follow these steps:
  1. Edit this page and add {{Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/PageName}} to the top of the list. Replace "PageName" with the relevant article name, i.e. the one on the existing AFD discussion. Also, indicate the title of the article in the edit summary as it is particularly helpful to add a link to the article in the edit summary. When you save the page, the discussion will automatically appear.
  2. You should also tag the AfD by adding {{subst:delsort|Judaism|~~~~}} to it, which will inform editors that it has been listed here. You may place this tag above or below the nomination statement or at the end of the discussion thread.
Note that there are a few scripts and tools that can make this easier.
Removing a closed AfD discussion
Closed AfD discussions are automatically removed by a bot.
Other types of discussions
You can also add and remove links to other discussions (prod, CfD, TfD etc.) related to Judaism.
Further information
For further information see Wikipedia's deletion policy and WP:AfD for general information about Articles for Deletion, including a list of article deletions sorted by day of nomination.

The result was Speedy Delete per WP:CSD#G7 (author request) and WP:CSD#G3 (obvious hoax), and a little bit of WP:SNOW.. Jayron32 15:49, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Yaakov Bentolila[edit]

Yaakov Bentolila (edit | talk | history | protect | delete | links | watch | logs | views) – (View AfD | edits since nomination)

I can find no evidence that the person described in this article actually exists. The citations to the New York Times and the Jerusalem Post are dead (despite only having been added 5 days ago) and do not exist on the Internet Archive. The third citation to The Independent is about a totally different person with no mention of Yaakov Bentolila. There does seem to be an academic of the same name with articles on the Hebrew and Spanish wikis, but that's clearly a different person from the one described here. I can find no sources pertaining to a Moroccan musician by that name, which is quite strange considering that he was supposedly notable enough to earn obituaries in the New York Times and the Jerusalem Post. On another note, I felt that the writing style of the article was a little "off", so I ran it through an AI writing detector. It came up as 91% likely to be AI generated. I hope this is not a hoax, but all of the evidence seems to be pointing in that direction. Spicy (talk) 14:50, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

  • I am the creator of the page and I just want to say I thoroughly messed up on this one, and I too would like the page to be Deleted GyanKnow contributions?
    • Gyan.Know, can you explain why and how you created this page? I'm struggling to understand how this could have happened. Spicy (talk) 14:59, 29 March 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
  • Delete with extreme prejudice against hoaxes I basically did the same analysis of the article that the nominator did and if I didn't know better I'd say this was a hoax from a vandal, not an editor with a credible history and a few thousand edits. The sources from The New York Times and The Jerusalem Post appear to have been manufactured out of thin air with a deliberate aim of conjuring up an appearance of notability. If this is the best that AI can do, I'm unimpressed with our new robotic overlords. If this is a hoax or a joke, a serious warning is needed, if not a block.
