I've heard it argued that pornography was the greatest driving force behind such technological innovations as streaming video. --Uncle Ed bug me 10:59, 21 June 2007 (CDT)

Strangely enough, I was having that conversation over the weekend at a wedding party (of all places!). Trashbat 11:02, 21 June 2007 (CDT)
To say nothing of videotape and personal digital cameras... Why do you think Polaroid hung on for so long? humanbe in 11:03, 21 June 2007 (CDT)

Mission[edit]

Doesn't relate to mission. Kill it. Kill it with fire. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 23:26, 15 September 2008 (EDT)

Hey, there are other people in the world besides you you know! The Hustler
You're absolutely right. There's me, and I happen to agree with him. Vaporize the bugger. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:36, 15 September 2008 (EDT)
I vote! to keep. Will supply substance to my position when the deletionists do so. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:36, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
I did: it doesn't relate to our mission. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 00:38, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
But, but, but..it's about fringe human sexuality, which surely belongs here because somebody first tried wandalizing Conservapedia with it but ASchlafly didn't put up with such tripe and deleted it. Also it has "goat" somewhere in the name. Mission be damned. Pirates and Ninjas belong here too. Triple X 00:43, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
"It doesn't relate to our mission" is not an argument, it is an assertion. "Why does it not" is what you aren't bothering to say. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:44, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Because it doesn't relate to any single sodding thing in our mission statement. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 00:53, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Of course it does. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:58, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh really? Please supply substance to your position. That is an assertion, not an argument. Which bit it relates to is what you're not bothering to say... etcetera, etcetera. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 01:03, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Those who would argue for changes must first supply their substance. Those conservatives among us who admire the status quo need only claim "it works". ħumanUser talk:Human 01:06, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
So you have no actual argument for keeping this? And you intend to keep pretending I haven't presented an argument for deletion (twice)? Nice one. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 01:10, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Alright then. Have a look at this list thing here:
1. Analyzing and refuting the anti-science movement, ideas and people.
2. Analyzing and refuting the full range of crank ideas.
3. Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism.
Which one of those does this article address? My argument is that it doesn't address a single one. To the best of my recollection, your argument is "look over there!" New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 01:16, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Goatse is a crank idea. It is a fundamentalist's wet dream. And, the painful posture involved is anti-science. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:21, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
That's right, flee! Flee before my logic! New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 02:24, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Open your mind, and the breeze 'twixt your hemispheres shall cool your jets. You are so pwned your tentacles are stinging your own floaty thing. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:29, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Actually, I won by default because you didn't technically show up. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 02:31, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Was that a Hannibal Lector "open your mind [so I can eat it]" open your mind, or a "be open-minded" open your mind? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:30, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
That was a "jellies don't have central nervous systems" type "open your mind", I refer you to the master, Andrew Schjellyfisch. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:33, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
And it's anti-authoritarian. Proxima Centauri 02:54, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
How, exactly? New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 02:59, 16 September 2008 (EDT)
Obviously. And why did you move PC's comment from where she put it? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:25, 16 September 2008 (EDT)

Delete[edit]

Really? Are we all sniggering 12-year-olds? People who are interested in Goatse can piss off to ED. Let's get rid of this. --Ψ GremlinPrata! 12:27, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

I'd be more inclined to banish it to fun. But I can't see its point in mainspace.--BobSpring is sprung! 12:30, 30 January 2011 (UTC)

I worked on this article because I hoped people would read it, laugh then move on to alternative articles that are more on mission. If others disagree that doesn’t matter too much as I’ve got a copy on my computer as well and I don’t mind if the article moves to a different wiki. Kirk Johnson (talk) 08:39, 31 January 2011 (UTC)
