[edit] Citations

Don't you remember seeing it on CNN? I do because I WAS the girl who got shot who was nice to that kid, and as hard as it was to forgive him, I did. I'm like his only friend now, and I still have the scar from being shot in the leg. I didn't want to forgive him, but I became a Southern Baptist and I know Jesus would want me to be forgiving. When it happened I wasn't all that religious, but I said a little prayer under my breath when it was happening, and I peed myself a little when I heard the resource officer shoot him because the kid had his gun aimed right at my head and I thought for a split second I was going to die. I did NOT forget the reason for what happened though, which is those vile, disgusting video games, which come from Satan. Everybody forgets things like this, except the one who will always have that mark in my thigh because of it. I don't just remember that incident, I remember EVERY incident that gets covered in the news because I don't like the memories it brings back. I was a cheerleader at Dallas Baptist University, and some little kid asked me why I had a mark there one time, and it was painful to have to answer that. It must be nice to just casually sit back and watch events like that on TV and not have to live through it like I did. Satan makes the violent video games, and Satan wants you to censor the truth.

I'm British so I've never seen anything on CNN, it shouldn't be too hard to find citations if it was covered in national news. Christopher (talk) 16:49, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Spelling

Well, it was called "Sodexho" when I was at PCC, but I guess they changed it now. We used to call Four Winds "The Rot" too. My school here in Lynchburg doesn't outsource, so...— Unsigned, by: The Rot / talk / contribs

Why do you bother with this? Christopher (talk) 18:32, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
The same reason I play video games home girl above despises (if she's even telling the truth). Good way of releasing stress without actually hurting anyone. The Rot (talk) 18:36, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Bit sad isn't it? Christopher (talk) 18:37, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Life will get better when I get paid and can get some weed. I wonder how the hell you know about Sodexho and Palms Grill? Do you go to PCC? The Rot (talk) 18:40, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
The magic of Google combined with boredom. Christopher (talk) 18:41, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
That was a longgggggggg time ago for me. Parents made me do it, and I didn't like it. Too many goodie-goodies like the bitch above whining about games.. The Rot (talk) 18:46, 17 April 2017 (UTC)
Well, if you couldn't tell from my names, I'm fucking hungry, so peace out. Enjoy your shitty little wiki. The Rot (talk) 18:50, 17 April 2017 (UTC)

My friend sent me a screenshot of this. Whoever is doing this, quit acting like you go to or work for PCC. You're probably one of those people who got kicked out because you were breaking the rules, and now you want to make us look bad. The dining service is almost entirely staffed by students, which is how they keep costs down and provide jobs for students, so we can graduate debt free like I did in '15. If you're a student there, which I highly doubt, you are violating Pathways by acting like this. Sorry to soapbox like this, but I don't like it when people act like this on the internet trying to make my school look bad. -2015LadyEagle— Unsigned, by: 2015LadyEagle / talk / contribs

On talk pages, please sign your comments using four tildes (~~~~) or by clicking on the sign button: SigButt.png on the toolbar above the edit panel. (You can indent successive talk page comments using one more colon (:) for each line.) Thank you. I don't think anyone on this site had any reason to believe him, he's mostly just a spammer/vandal. On another note, I'm guessing you don't like our article on your school either. Christopher (talk) 18:01, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Your article is criticism from an opposing viewpoint. While I disagree with your website's position, comparing it to someone being stupid like "The Rot," as he calls himself, is like comparing an apple to an orange. 2015LadyEagle (talk) 18:44, 18 April 2017 (UTC) (I think I'm doing it right...)
Fair enough (you are signing correctly by the way). It may well be criticism from an opposing viewpoint and all that but it's currently rather poorly sourced criticism. As a former student, are there any blatant factual inaccuracies in the article you could tell us about? Christopher (talk) 19:06, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
A lot of the content is accurate, but written in a very biased style. I did see some inaccuracies, like the claim about shaking hands. Shaking hands is a gray area, and no one gets demerits for shaking hands unless they obviously have more than "friendly" intentions, or someone in administration just doesn't like a person, and there's usually a reason administration doesn't like him/her. I've never heard anything about being prohibited from libraries, though I never really had an interest in venturing beyond the Rebekah Horton Library anyway. I glanced at PCC's website to be sure, and I actually found this: Apparently, grad students can actually go to libraries at neighboring schools for resources unavailable at PCC. If you'd like, I can try to edit out any glaring inaccuracies I see, but if I break something, please try not to be nasty about it. You seem like a nice person, but I've seen people on Wikipedia be outright mean to inexperienced editors for minor mistakes. 2015LadyEagle (talk) 19:29, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Anyone's free to edit nearly all of our articles (unless they're persistently vandalised), thanks in advance for helping us be more accurate. Christopher (talk) 19:34, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Actually, I can't edit it. A message states "This page has been locked. You have insufficient permissions to edit." However, I appreciate your desire to rid the article of inaccuracies when so many websites are content with the maintenance of a hatchet job. 2015LadyEagle (talk) 19:42, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh, it was protected due to someone who's probably the same person as "The Rot" vandalizing it, I'll unprotect it. Christopher (talk) 19:45, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
The article is almost certainly going to remain highly critical of PCC (like nearly all of our other articles on religious organizations), it'll hopefully though be critical of what PCC actually is, not some made up place where no one's allowed to shake each other's hand. Christopher (talk) 19:52, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I tried not to skew the viewpoint. If I made any deeper changes, the article would begin to become pro-PCC, and I assume you would not like that. I'm sure I've missed an inaccuracy somewhere, but at least it's more accurate than it was before. 2015LadyEagle (talk) 20:18, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Thanks! Some of it is inevitably going to end up going (for instance "though students are taught what evolution is" will probably go, we're very skeptical of creationists claiming to teach what evolution "actually is" when concepts like the Crocoduck exist). Christopher (talk) 20:23, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
What would make your contributions a lot more likely to stay is if you had reliable sources to back your claims up, see Help:References for technical help with sources. Christopher (talk) 20:26, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I know how to write in APA style with references, but I probably won't be getting deeply involved in this wiki, if only because there is only so much I can contribute without compromising your viewpoint. What I wrote was from personal experience. I hope that doesn't sound harsh or uncaring, but this isn't really what I'm into. If I wanted to voluntarily write about PCC, I would write about it in a forum that appreciates PCC. 2015LadyEagle (talk) 20:36, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I don't think that was ever in any doubt, thanks anyway for improving the article. Christopher (talk) 20:38, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I appreciate your respect, and I wish more people could work together like this rather than tear each other down. I'm guessing you are an atheist, and while I doubt I am going to change that, you seem like a nice person, and I wish you would consider God's plan of Salvation and accept Christ as your savior, as explained at 2015LadyEagle (talk) 20:54, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
It used bible verses to convince me to become a Christian, which isn't very convincing if you don't already think the bible is the word of god but thanks for (from your point of view) attempting to save me from eternal torture. Christopher (talk) 09:01, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] New messages?

Why does it say I have new messages when there's nothing new there? Empire News (talk) 02:26, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

Because a vandal spammed your talk page and was reverted, any edit to your talk page sends that message. Christopher (talk) 07:50, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Oh. I looked at the history, and I'm guessing, based on "post a picture of your scar", that it's greyed out because it was something hurtful and I wouldn't want to know what was said? It's also obvious, based on some of the words used, that it's the same guy above. What are you two talking about? What is "pcc"? Apparently I remind him of "pcc" in some way, is that a bad things? Empire News (talk) 13:44, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
He's a vandal who spams pages with "HAGGER" and "GRAWP" (copying a Wikipedia vandalWikipedia's W.svg) and occasionally posts more abusive things. I was asking him why he wasted his time doing something so pointless. "PCC" (Pensacola Christian College I think?) Is where he claims to work as a chef. He says you remind him of "PCC" because you're a "goodie goodie" (read: not a misogynistic drug addict). Christopher (talk) 14:00, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
I should have known that, I knew a girl who was a cheerleader at that college. I think he's full of it. I never heard her refer to anything there as slightly resembling "the rot", maybe it's a kitchen worker term. But that company was at Dallas too, and I'm pretty sure you had to take a drug test to work for dining services... He talks down on the college, maybe they fired him or something. Empire News (talk) 14:27, 18 April 2017 (UTC)
Honestly, he's probably unemployed (or lying about being a druggie, I doubt you can be a functioning heroin addict). Christopher (talk) 14:33, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Grawp

Could you give me the tl;dr of the Grawp thing? I must have missed it while I was gone. Thanks. Meh (You) 16:40, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

From what I gathered, these raids started yesterday. The fucker's trying to copy off of a Wikipedia vandal called Grawp. The living oxymoron (talk) 16:41, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
This guy who claims to work as a chef for PCC is replacing page content with HAGGER???? And putting misogynistic abuse on female users talk pages. See hereWikipedia's W.svg for the Wikipedia vandal he's copying. See User talk:Christopher/Archive1#Minor wiki and Spelling for my dealings with him (to my knowledge I'm the only one he's communicated with properly instead of just ) (the Archive1 minor wiki link may not be the same person, quite a few people copy the Wikipedia vandal). Christopher (talk) 16:51, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] In light of this Grawp situation...

I think it might be a good idea to implement a stringent background check process. I'm not sure of how we can go about this, but it's time for this guy to disappear for good. The living oxymoron (talk) 22:48, 19 April 2017 (UTC)

Grawp did have a point. How do we conduct something like that? We can't just do tests on everyone who wants an account here. We're not Conservapedia. RoninMacbeth (talk) 00:06, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Right, but these revision wars are going to get way too fucking repetitive. The living oxymoron (talk) 00:08, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, kind of a shame. I wonder if we could get checkuser installed...RoninMacbeth (talk) 01:27, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I think the best we can do is hold out until the wandal gets bored. For checkuser, perhaps ask a mod or use your better judgement. This is a test of patience; don't succumb and don't give in to the troll's desires by responding besides reverting and banning. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 01:49, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Rational-Wiki used to have checkuser, but certain people were using it to dox people, so they got rid of it. Brake Caliper (talk) 02:46, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
That's incorrect. Conservapedia used it to screen new accounts and enforce their insane banning policy, and RationalWiki was formed by ban-ees. Checkuser was disabled in 2007. FuzzyCatPotato of the Black Brooms (talk/stalk) 03:59, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
I promise that when I'm elected we're going to have extreme vetting. It'll be great, it'll be tremendous, it'll be fantastic, it'll be awesome, it'll be absolutely huge for this community. We will close the boarders and keep out the vandals. When the Internet sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us. They’re bringing vandalism. They’re bringing crime. They’re trolls. And some, I assume, are good people. But we're going to build a wall around the Internet. It'll be tremendous, you'll love it. You'll absolutely love it. I promise that we're going to have extreme vetting. We're going to vet to the extreme. It'll be huge. I would tell you how we'd do it but I can't get to technical for the lay-people. I would tell you, I want to tell you, I wish I could tell you, but I said I wouldn't do it. Just trust me, it'll be great. Now, say it with me, we're going to Make RationalWiki Great Again! Meh (You) 13:49, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
Who's gonna pay for it though? Christopher (talk) 14:03, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
We're gonna make Conservapedia pay for it. The living oxymoron (talk) 14:07, 20 April 2017 (UTC)
@Meh: Are you going to abruptly hang up on Eliezer Yudkowsky during a phone call too? RoninMacbeth (talk) 15:31, 21 April 2017 (UTC)

[edit] Vandalism

Get me out of the vandal bin, please... thx--Kingdamian1 (talk) 17:12, 27 April 2017 (UTC)

(This was initially put on my talk page) You'll be removed from the vandal bin if you can show that we're losing out by having you in the vandal bin. Make good quality edits and make us confident you're not going to page blank again. Christopher (talk) 17:31, 27 April 2017 (UTC)
