BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, Spud, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.
The flag of the place where I live.

My name is Simon. I acquired the nickname Spud when I was a tiny tot due to my fondness for mashed potato.

I was born in 1973 in Stratford-upon-Avon, which most definitely was the birthplace of the world's greatest writer, in spite of what some people might say.

Since 1997, I have been teaching English as a foreign language. I have lived and worked in Turkey, Poland and Japan. Since 2003, I have been teaching children in a small private language school in a village in northern Taiwan.
