Feedback wanted on article blanking

I'm an admin here, and mostly what I do is remove spam posts. We don't have any mechanisms here to deal with disputes on article content, so I'm opening this discussion on what to do about a new user who has blanked several articles because they are asserted to be of low quality.

User:MisterMentat has blanked 2D Room system architecture, Gunshot Coding and System Architecture, the strategy to complex implementations, with an edit summary for the last two of "The article is not well written, and it seems like it's bad spam text generated from a neural network." All three articles have the same original author, User:Youngblood. I agree that the articles are not of very good quality, but I don't think they are spam or generated from a neural network, and I think they have potential to improve. What do other editors here think? You can see the articles prior to blanking using the "History" tab.

MisterMentat also removed an external link to from Articles, saying "The link is dead, and it points to very suspects sites". I tried the link; it requested that I install Flash, and that might or might not be suspicious, but I chose not to proceed further. Note that I have not made the link clickable here. I'm not inclined to restore this link myself.

I'll notify MisterMentat and Youngblood about this post.-Muscles (talk) 05:53, 28 September 2019 (CEST) redirects to an auto-forwarding site that then proceeds to one of a number of commercial sites (one of which being Removing it was definitely the correct move. PaulBlay (talk)
