No evidence of Wesley Weyers or his supposed book on Google. [[User:CatherineMunro|Catherine\talk]] 23:10, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)

  • Good catch; Not sure whether it's a hoax, vanity or very-very-non-notable though. Isn't really a stereotypical example of any of those. Delete anyway, until someone can give some references. --fvw 23:17, 2004 Nov 10 (UTC)
  • Zero Google hits for "Wesley Weyers" "The Soho Bomber". Delete. RickK 23:29, Nov 10, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: not notable; book doesn't exist in the British Library catalogue or the Library of Congress; see Talk:Wesley Weyers. If it's vanity it's very spooky vanity as Wesley Weyers is supposedly dead. --rbrwr± 23:40, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC)
    • Does anyone remember Demomotus? Someone made up this Greek philospher and wrote a good article about him, and he's still floating around the Internet (although the situation seems to be getting under control). I think this is the same type of thing. Fishal 23:57, 10 Nov 2004 (UTC). Oh, and I vote delete.
  • Delete for above reasons. Niceguyjoey 00:29, Nov 11, 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete: Looks like a fantasy vanity/hoax. His dates are "circa" 1971-2003? What? Somewhere around 1971-2003? That's one joke. Then "became world famous," past tense, and yet no one has heard of him, so that's the second joke. "Soho bomber" sounds like a private taunt, but I'm not sure. (BTW, I think our article on Saint Elmo is a fabrication. It's very authoritative and, according to my sources, 100% wrong.) Geogre 01:24, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • Delete. Subtle stealth vandalism/hoax. jni 08:37, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)
  • I get a lot of Google hits for "The Soho Bomber", but not as references to a book. They're references to an actual nailbomb attack on a London gay bar in 1999, four years after the alleged Mr. Weyers wrote his alleged book. Damn weird vanity/hoax, for sure, but no evidence whatsoever of it being anything else. Delete. Bearcat 08:42, 11 Nov 2004 (UTC)
