Anything worth adding[edit]

In the last month all I can see is Farah's bitch slap of Andy and Ken getting a few extra rights neither of which seem that important long-term. Nobody of any interest has received blocking right, obvious explosive parodist and that whole liberal bot has faded away. Do we want to pad it out with those or do we just leave it uninteresting? - π 01:10, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

There doesn't have to be "news". At times it's ok for there to be nothing for months. Gaps are fine. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:53, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
Suppose so. I had high hopes for the liberal bot to block everyone. - π 02:54, 16 November 2009 (UTC)
We all did :( But anyway, the point here is not to "pad it", but only to mark events of distinction. I guess Andy did apologize twice in the last month or so... ħumanUser talk:Human 03:50, 16 November 2009 (UTC)

January 2010[edit]

Anybody notice an important event? Promotion, demotion, long term editor leaving/blocked, news reports, major event that caused a rule change? - π 03:31, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

When was RW set up?[edit]

Where's the lipson dialogue? Maybe I missed it rational ghey (send a message) 22:09, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

This version, May 22 2007. The older version, March/April. - π 22:14, 28 April 2010 (UTC)

Bot spree[edit]

I tend to agree with the BoN, this vandal spree entry in August 2010 is pretty insignificant and reads like someone boasting that they think they have done something original (they have not). - π 02:03, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

TK forges Andy's signature[edit]

What's the purpose of this reversion? You'd think TK's duplicitious act of forging Andy's signature to win an argument with himself, of which he was rewarded with sysopship 3 days later would support the anti-TK & anti-Andy sentiment prevelent in Rationalwiki. There is nothing, absolutley nothing, damaging to any Rationalwiki's editors good faith or cridibility here. The only reason User:π could have reverted this is, it was put in by me. Can we get an equitible and fair ruling from an independent sysop, please? nobsdon't bother me 23:33, 1 May 2011 (UTC)

Can you read? TK is mealy quoting Andy to emphasis the point that you should not be using Wikipedia as a reference in the article. - π 23:43, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Hard to tell because TK doesn't post his signature on either of his posts in that section up to and including the Andy quote. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 23:53, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
I am basing it off the fact that the Andy quote timestamp is half an hour earlier. My hypothesis is that TK probably went to Andy, got his agreement and brought back the quote. Unfortunately with all the page history burnings we are unlikely to find Andy's response, my guess would be his talk page. Basically Rob is bitter he lost an argument with TK more than 4 years ago. We should all chip in and get him a bridge. - π 23:58, 1 May 2011 (UTC)
Here you go I went and found it in Andy's archives for you. - π 00:04, 2 May 2011 (UTC)
Wikipedia has a policy on Signature forgery. [1]Rationalwiki does too, I assume. You're telling me if I were to cut and paste your signature in Rationalwiki to gain leverage for myself I would not be blocked or reprimanded? TK should have posted a link, not forged a signature. Your justification for TK's behavior doesn't hold water. nobsdon't bother me 00:15, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Context[edit]

The facts are, TK began edit warring with me over cp:Ronald Reagan and I locked the page from him editing it. He posted this,

Please stop. Your latest edits, you title (reorder some stuff; NPOV). You wholesale changed the POV, and we are back to the same BS. Please don't make it so I have to request that you be locked out.

TK later overwrote this same comment [2] and requested Andy make him a sysop:

Would you consider granting me sysop status, at least long enough to complete the Reagan and Thatcher articles. (TK 19:50, 16 March 2007 (EDT)

TK has oversighted some of the record, like the protection log for Ronald Reagan to hide the fact I locked him out (the first entry in the current log is an unprotect). Once he got sysoped, he quickly ruled the Reagan page protect's with an iron fist. TK was never known for content, so his request to Andy for sysop powers was bullshit.

Bottomline: my first contact with TK was in an edit war over Ronald Reagan. I never trusted him. There is no conservative monolith. nobsdon't bother me 01:52, 2 May 2011 (UTC)

Rob vs the bullies[edit]

Can someone who was following the set up of the community portal and all those fun and games fill in July 2011 with the events that lead to his down fall? - π Moderator 22:58, 17 August 2011 (UTC)
