Articles that "may be a hoax" should be deleted? Perhaps it is "probably are a hoax"? More than a mere suspicion is required for a DQ. Thanks, Racepacket (talk) 04:14, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

How about adding something based the following from En Wikipedia:

Self-published and questionable sources as sources on themselves

Self-published or questionable sources may be used as sources of information about themselves, especially in articles about themselves, without the requirement that they be published experts in the field, so long as:

  • the material is not unduly self-serving;
  • it does not involve claims about third parties (such as people, organizations, or other entities);
  • it does not involve claims about events not directly related to the subject;
  • there is no reasonable doubt as to its authenticity;
  • the article is not based primarily on such sources.

Absent this rule, it will be very difficult to add a lot of references to Simple Wikipedia. Racepacket (talk) 08:59, 5 November 2011 (UTC)
