Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Anti-fluorine

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


This is a more serious version of an article that was speedied, but it's still an imaginary subject with no indication of notability. Gazpacho 04:26, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)

Every element (theoretically) has an anti counterpart. Creating articles about any/all of these elements is pointless. The existence of anti-elements should be discussed in the anti-matter article. DCEdwards1966 06:24, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)
  • Keep or Merge and Redirect with a listing of other anti-particles. This is not an imaginary topic, and is notable. The phenomenon of anti-particles and anti-elements has been theorized in Stephen Hawking's books as well as in very high-level textbooks and handbooks.

    The notability of antimatter and antiparticles (which predate Hawking by decade or so) is not disputed. Anti-fluorine is just a direct logical consequence, and a rather arbitrary one. If it has figured prominently in someone's research or some work of fiction, fill me in on the details and I'll reconsider. Gazpacho 07:05, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete, unless there's something notable about fluorine that makes it's mirror particle somehow different from all the other mirror particles. --fvw* 04:57, 2005 Jan 6 (UTC)
  • Delete or Merge and Redirect with listing of other anti-elements (is there one)? Antiparticles exist, and it's perfectly reasonable to believe that antifluorine could exist, but without some showing that antifluorine is more interesting than, say, anticarbon, I see no need for it to have its own article. --Kelly Martin 05:08, Jan 6, 2005 (UTC)
  • If there is a listing of anti-elements, we need to delete it; moving it to anti-element and deleting the redirect would make sense, though. Ben Standeven 09:45, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • delete or transwiki to antiwikipedia. This is not an encyclopedia article. --Tony Sidaway|Talk 15:26, 6 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • If we Merge this with the Flourine article, we'll get a matter/anti-matter explosion big enough to destroy half the quadrant. Can't risk that, so we had better Delete it. BTW, there is an antihydrogen (note, no hyphen) article which is worth keeping because it has some interesting info about an anti-element which apparantly has actually been produced in a lab.

  • Merge, with a suitable article on anti-particles, then add redirect. Megan1967 01:22, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete as arcanely hypothetical for now. Wyss 04:35, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge and redirect. There is an antihydrogen article that is interesting. OTOH, antihelium redirects to antimatter, there is an antielement article, and Category:Antimatter for similar matters. (just read in the Preview that Roysmith also saw the antihydrogen article) --Deathphoenix 20:11, 7 Jan 2005 (UTC) [Category sequestered with the colon trick, to keep VfD out of the Category. --Jerzy(t) 03:47, 2005 Jan 10 (UTC)]
  • Delete. As others have said, unless we're going to have an anti-element article for every element, it doesn't make sense to have this. Josh Cherry 15:32, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. As above. DJ Clayworth 15:38, 8 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. As above Andris 21:29, Jan 9, 2005 (UTC)
  • Del. Every word is true, and worthless. It would be amazing if antielement doesn't already render this teeth-gnashingly redundant. Delete, and schedule for Undeletion debate in 3005 January, in case its status has changed without our noticing. --Jerzy(t) 13:13, 2005 Jan 10 (UTC)
  • I'm also quite concerned about uncontrolled matter/anti-matter reactions. As Wikipedia has not yet secured a supply of high quality Di-lithium crystals to control the reaction, I'm afraid I have to vote to Delete. Jayjg | (Talk) 20:04, 10 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete and create antifluorine as a redirect to antielement. Alphax (t) (c) (e) 08:26, Jan 11, 2005 (UTC)
  • Antikeep. Article as it stands is redundant. Unlikely to become encyclopaedic within the next century or two. Raven42 13:48, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Delete. There's nothing special about anti-flourine. In theory, there could exist anti-water, anti-milk, an anti-Jimbo Wales. Unless we're prepared to have pages or redirects for all of them, this should go. -- Walt Pohl 18:50, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)
  • Merge I think it's interesting. Would like to know more. Salazar 21:41, 11 Jan 2005 (UTC)
