Gif[edit]

To not see that incredibly distracting gif illustrating pommers law, add .hide-pommer {display:none} to you personal css. — Dysk (contribs) 10:02, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

Perhaps we could just remove it completely? Wrapping with a div is awkward to me; is there no way to apply a class through the wiki syntax? —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 10:14, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
So I applied the class directly through the wikicode, this makes the image disappear, but not the thumbnail frame or caption. :d — Dysk (contribs) 10:22, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Another solution occured to me... Template:HCMIMG :D — Dysk (contribs) 10:38, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
That... doesn't really change anything (and I'm not a fan of cluttering templatespace with single-use "templates"). Again, is the image really necessary anyway? —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 11:06, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
Well considering the amount of effort I am putting into not seeing it, I would say no. But plausibly someone else might like it? — Dysk (contribs) 11:35, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
I zapped it. Any complaints to restore it can be dealt with. — Dysk (contribs) 11:37, 3 August 2018 (UTC)

UnlicensedThinker[edit]

I strongly believe that UnlicensedThinker should be at least de-sysopped, and possibly banned. Warrants: Mr. Thinker has willingly misinterpreted data in arguments to further Islamophobia. Example:""I should note both that Indonesia has the highest population of Muslims of any country, and has a low birth defect rate." @Bongolian That's interesting. Do you have sources? I checked Pew Research Center and Indonesia is 87% of Muslim, so it's not true that is has the highest population of Muslims of any country. Thinker(unlicensed) 21:08, 22 April 2019 (UTC)" (From https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Essay_talk:Consanguinity_in_the_Muslim_World) (Obviously, Bongolian was talking about absolute numbers, not percentages). Mr Thinker wrote a screed so bad it had to be moved to essay space (The one above). Mr Thinker has started several extremely controversial, to say the least, sup-posts in the Saloon Bar. Examples: https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki:Saloon_bar&diff=prev&oldid=2062623 https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki:Saloon_bar&diff=prev&oldid=2064311 He also started this, which is transphobic victim-blaming, to say the least.https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki:Saloon_bar&diff=prev&oldid=2020742 In fact, it seems most of Thinker's edits are "Look at me!" attempts to inflame feelings in the Saloon Bar. In addition, Thinker proposed deleting the collapse templates, therefore increasing this site's vulnerability to trolls. https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki_talk:All_things_in_moderation&diff=prev&oldid=2036461 He also decided to attempt to start an argument over Maga hats: https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki:Saloon_bar&diff=prev&oldid=2035195 He has denied that Jordan Peterson is far right, even though Peterson unquestionably is, going so far as to go vandalize the page on him to remove that bit of information. https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Jordan_Peterson&diff=prev&oldid=2036784 Thinker whined about Nathan Phillips, presumably to make anti-racism activists look bad. https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=RationalWiki:Saloon_bar&diff=prev&oldid=2036450 In addition, Thinker is generally abrasive under criticism. Due to all of this, I believe Thinker is a troll, and requires consequences. Sincerely, Summa Atheologica (talk) 19:14, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

@Summa Atheologica You raise complaints on the Chicken Coop page itself. FYI. — Dysk (contribs) 19:25, 25 April 2019 (UTC)
