In practice items about Wikimedians are /more/ likely to be deleted
than equivalent items about non-Wikimedians.

I know of cases (mostly now reversed, thankfully) where items about
the authors of academic papers - and so clearly meeting Wikidata's
notability criteria - were deleted *because* the author was also a
Wikimedian.

In one case, an item was deleted by the subject Wikimedian himself,
with no prior discussion. Despite this glaring conflict of interest,
it has never been restored.
