HG you are a fish: a fish called


I've got you - I know what you're trying to do. You're going to fill up all the server space with swarm essays so that RW can't function.

SusanG, I don't get the wanda reference, could you clue me in? HeartGoldShow me your intolerance 22:47, 27 July 2007 (CDT)
There's a movie entitled "A Fish Called Wanda", it's also our term for a vandal. Locke Random 23:13, 27 July 2007 (CDT)
Thanks, I just read the WP article on it, and became afraid that SusanG was intimating that I was the hitman Otto West character from the film. HeartGoldShow me your intolerance 23:15, 27 July 2007 (CDT)

Sorry HG - I assumed that your long & tedious 'swarrm' essays were a subtle and covert vandalism. your subsequent action (deletion of original essay) proves me wrong. I retract uncondiionally - you are not a fish. Keepgoats 07:13, 28 July 2007 (CDT)

Guppy up?[edit]

"If you visit a University campus, you have probably noticed that freshmen guppy up during the first weeks on campus."

As a citizen of the US, I am also curious about what this means. ollïegrïnd 09:06, 2 August 2007 (CDT)
I made it up. Can't you figure it out from the context? HeartGoldShow me your intolerance 01:19, 12 December 2007 (EST)

On what basis though? I can think of a couple. 1. the banner says "This is a collaborative essay. However, if you don't concur with the premise, please do not undermine the essay with edits in the essay itself.." Which sort of makes it an article locked against other views. Secondly it says it is "in progress" - Don't we have a rule that you can't have something "in progress" for more than two months? --Bob's your uncle 10:42, 12 September 2007 (MDT)
How about just moving it into his user space? Then it would still be around, still "his" essay, but out of the way where it belongs. --Kels 10:45, 12 September 2007 (MDT)
I wouldn't delete it; it's sorta an important "historical document." VirileSterileblah, blah, blah 11:35, 12 September 2007 (MDT)
