It's wrong! Damn it's wrong!

Commons administrators can't delete the files based on these criteria,
at least files for WLM. I contacted one of participants with a request
to prove that she was the author of the photo, because I had found the
one in a Belarusian photographer site (and the login there wasn't the
same as in Commons). She edited her profile on that site to prove that
she is the actual author. This is the story.

I know there are obvious situation but administrators at Commons
should think twice before they delete the next photo in the row.
