Hillary Clinton[edit]

Why did you revert my edit on Hillary Clinton? Please don't tell me you believe this garbage. TheRationalAtheist (talk) 19:21, 18 April 2017 (UTC)

That paragraph, part of the lead that summarizes the rest of the article, is reasonably balanced and needed to make the point that Hillary's reputation for political expediency is well-deserved. It represents a consensus arrived at in a heavily litigated article. Now Talk:Hillary Clinton is a better place for your objections than my user page, but I don't see a problem with the current text. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 20:43, 18 April 2017 (UTC)


You're a fundie! (a sexist to be precise). Christopher (talk) 15:09, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

More an old-time social libertarian. Moral-policing other people's entertainments is always an aggressive attack IMO. Thanks for letting me know. I'm not usually so quotable. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 19:18, 27 May 2017 (UTC)

Grawp Attack[edit]

Possibly ongoing. Be on lookout. RoninMacbeth (talk) 23:06, 21 July 2017 (UTC)

Draft Community Survey[edit]

I drafted another community survey. Since the first one was controversial, I'd love to hear your thoughts. I won't proceed without community support. Survey draft available here. FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 16:27, 27 July 2017 (UTC)

Political questions seemed a bit binary. I went with some mostly because I could see both sides. "Most corporations" make reasonable profits - more like everybody has the right to make a decent living at what they do without trying to thrash about pursuing the latest efficiency craze and similar unwholesome novelties. Likewise, the "old ways are best" for similar reasons; people here need a return to stability in their lives. - Smerdis of Tlön, LOAD "*", 8, 1. 18:10, 27 July 2017 (UTC)
They're taken from Pew, which thinks forced-choice questions like those are the best option available for their style of opinion polling. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 19:04, 27 July 2017 (UTC)


I have a draft about Legalism (Chinese Philosophy)Wikipedia's W.svg. You can edit it, if you want. RoninMacbeth (talk) 21:37, 30 July 2017 (UTC)
