I sincerely hope[edit]

...that you've made a Matrix reference at least once while inviting new members? Anyway, I don't mind. I'm on another secret forum anyway. :p Uchiha 23:19, 2 November 2007 (EDT)

Unlike the Matrix we don't invite new members, we let the rest of y'all continue being good little batteries :). tmtoulouse heckle 23:24, 2 November 2007 (EDT)

FYI I don't care what youall been discussing - you've a perfect right to conduct private conversations with whomesoever you please. (I rather think that threatening to out such conversations is a betrayal of trust of the meanest kind.) If it hadn't been for such there'd be no RW would there? Being a naive Brit, I trust our Admins to behave in the interests of the wiki & wouldn't rock the boat under any circumstances that I can imagine. (my word I sound positively arsehole creeping - going for sycophant of the year award!) SusanYou don't have to talk, but ... 23:49, 2 November 2007 (EDT)

PS The matrix started good but Holywooditis took over & turned it into another Western transported to virtuality. SusanYou don't have to talk, but ...

The one gripe I have is that they're too tolerant. SusanYou don't have to talk, but ... 23:49, 2 November 2007 (EDT)

I hope I'm just one of the majority who don't care one way or another, and would rather spend more emotional baggage over burning a perfectly delicious goat cake. NorsemanWassail! 00:05, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Yup, I think you are Norse ole buddy. Me too, I suppose. SusanYou don't have to talk, but ... 00:14, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
  • Wait. There was a secret forum, and I wasn't invited? Ouch. Actually, I don't care, I have my own super secret forum. And its more super secret than yours. Bohdan 00:45, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Bohdan, you would find it immensely funny! Just email or IM me. Unless, of course they want to delete the article, which is a pack of lies and false history. Their choice! Cheers! --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 00:50, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
So is this is the place where they discussed policy? That would make the whole "mobocracy" think is just a lie. Bohdan 00:53, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Yes! Seems some talk a good game, but need the darkness to actually be themselves and attack people who cannot respond. I really don't think that is a "Liberal" attribute. Most of us are honest, and open. We tell people to their faces, rather than make hidden forums to talk crap about others. I kept asking that they drop this, but they felt the need to make this lie of an article to try and salvage their "images" I guess. Maybe the thing to do is post the screen shots, along with the users IP addresses? Someone get back to me about that, if there is objection from the Mob, I won't....but just like here, I have moved and seconded, and unless objection is made, I will do so. --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 00:58, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
If you wish to post screen shots go ahead, try and block out personal identification such as IP addresses though. We can make a "virtual tour" section. tmtoulouse heckle 01:10, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Do shut up Night Drain - you're begining to bore me. SusanYou don't have to talk, but ... 01:13, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

NT, what are you, um... what are you trying to do, exactly? To accomplish here? Just messing around, or do you have an ideological bone to pick? Uchiha 01:24, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Whatever, Trent. I will put them all up, personal information and all, on a website you don't control. Your House Lawyer can busy himself with objections. Or, you could just let this all go, as you promised you would, but others decided to keep on keeping on. Totally your choice, though, and all you need to do is honor your past promises.
Uchiha, My only objection is to pious liars, just like Assfly, pretending here they have a mobocracy, yet direct policy and attack others from a hidden area. If these guys would only walk the walk, and not just talk the talk, everything would be fine. If they want to have a little clubhouse, I don't care. If they want to use that club house to direct disinformation against any one person, and never allow that person to answer back, that I find objectionable. Their pretense of not being exclusive, and yet doing the pot/kettle thing to others, is laughable. I was willing to let the whole thing drop, but others found the need to continue it by making this article, trying to laugh off their embarassment. Since they are not being honest in their article 100%, they are the ones dragging this out. --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 01:31, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
When I go to a cannibal restaurant, I always order the House Lawyer. --Kels 06:31, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Hehe, you should make a wiki to analyze our wiki which is here to refute another wiki which exists to attack another wiki. Then I will make a wiki to refute your wiki, and we can just keep on keeping on! tmtoulouse heckle 01:42, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Now that gave a needed laugh to a too intense situation....thanks for that! --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 01:46, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Then I would need to make a wiki to refute all of your wikis. Locke User is Vandal/sysop Always Watching...... 01:50, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Night Train, you couldn't find one scrap of text on the forum which showed anybody making up "policy" for RW. The forum has been used only for discussion of off-site plans, and discussion of pages on RW (NOT policy making). --Ζωροάστρης 12:12, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
So, the discussion about a Google email group, wasn't policy, or connected to Rational Wiki? Odd, it has the name of Rational Wiki Maybe you just forgot? There are other instances too, you might have missed, Hojimachong. You can review them here soon, if you don't decide to end this. --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 12:23, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
NT, your head is too far up your ass to realize that the email group was posted on the public forum ("RationalWiki"), with an open invitation to join, and unrestricted registration. The other email group posted on the cabal forum is specifically for coordinating off-site activity. --Ζωροάστρης 12:26, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
I've stayed silent so far, but... You're striking out against everybody of the Cabal (including me) because of your grudge against some? --Sid 12:26, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

It is so odd, but looking at the ancient history here, whenever anyone has dared to disagree with the powers that be here, that small little clique, they are always subject to the same old bullshit of being labled as someone else. All I have asked for is for them to stop their attacks on others. Nothing more. It was Cabal who moved it public, and Cabal forum members who provoked responses. This is easily checked in the page histories. The good news is, people are talking, and hopefully we can all walk away from this. I think there is a real good-faith effort underway now. --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 14:47, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

why not GO?[edit]

Night Drain, what do you think this is - It's a fucking wiki - not a nation, not a political party, not a religion - it's of less moment than my cat - it's only reason for existence is to puncture the anti - science religious right and(incidentally) to enjoy the company. Right now I'm not enjoying yours - you're obviously not enjoying ours so why not piss off? SusanYou don't have to talk, but ... 01:26, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Well excuse me, Susan.....but the whole world isn't about amusing you, is it? And this place isn't even 40% about anti-science. It is about CP. And if you stopped attacking, and others stopped making up lies to explain away their doings, it would have been dropped hours ago. --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 01:31, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
1. Yes, it is. Susan's friends and family hired all of us to set this up to amuse her, and her alone (ok, & her cat). 2. You obviously haven't spent much time on the site. CP is an incidental interest because it's where most of us met. Oh, and 3. take a chill pill. humanUser talk:Human 11:58, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Someone's veneer is cracking. NT, I think most people here want to move on, and not perpetuate a destructive and non-beneficial cycle. Or we can continue to bicker. Your call, but vengeance is not its own end.-αmεσ (historian) 02:29, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

The veneer cracking seems to be one of your members in your little playhouse arguing directly opposite their personal attacks made on another member of this wiki, and the rest of you playing along, AmesG. Think about it. --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 12:16, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

NERD FIGHT!!

Clarification?[edit]

I find this a little hard to follow. Does this mean rationalwiki isn't a "mobocracy"? Is it an oligarchy? If it is an oligarchy, what would be the easiest way to get user:Tmtoulouse banned? And who would get his powers? Bohdan 14:28, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

I think it's still a mobocracy, the fact that non-wiki-related decisions are made offsite notwithstanding. And if TMT were banned, the immediate successor would be Andrew Schlafly, or, with a showing of good cause.... you.-αmεσ (historian) 14:37, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Great. Can I count on your support when I try to get tmt banned? Bohdan 14:38, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Well, you're already a RW sysop, aren't you? That means you're at least one step ahead of Schlafly.-αmεσ (historian) 14:40, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Bohdan's a sysop here? Sweet. You're a step ahead of me, too. I call for the de-sysoping of all administrators, and the proclaimation of Bohdan as dictator. ΓHammer and Sickle text gold.svgδλεσςΛιβεραλ 14:41, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

GL, I'm fairly sure you're a sysop. If you're not, I have no idea why not. But, seconded.-αmεσ (historian) 14:42, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Hey yeah, that's right, Bohdan is a sysop... what's with that??? Uchiha 14:42, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
Actually, tmt's faithful little supporter User:Human took away my sysopship. Bohdan 14:43, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
He took mine away, too. But I asked him to do so. It was right before I temporarily retired forever ago. Then I never got around to asking for them back... I might go do that sometime soon. AND HE TOOK BOHDAN'S POWAZ AWAY?! ΓHammer and Sickle text gold.svgδλεσςΛιβεραλ 14:45, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
There is a small chance I might have asked him to do it, but I am not concerned with insignificant details. Bohdan 14:47, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Gosh if those two trouble makers are Sysops, I want to be one too! In fact, why can't all members be demoted to that? In a mobocracy, that only seems fair! Bohdan, if you agree to make all regular members here sysops, I will work 24/7 to insure your election! --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 14:51, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Bohdan, did you just call me black hole's jock strap? humanUser talk:Human 14:49, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

yes, sysopship for all! Bohdan 14:53, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

And free porn or Disney movies for all? --Иight¤Ṭrain ♦Τalk ǃ 14:55, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
What's wrong with free goat? ΓHammer and Sickle text gold.svgδλεσςΛιβεραλ 15:02, 3 November 2007 (EDT)
I demandHumbly request Cratship. Locke User is Vandal/sysop Always Watching...... 15:09, 3 November 2007 (EDT) No, seriously.

It would appear that sysopship has gotten too attractive. I propose a mandatory twenty lashes a day for all sysops and bureaucrats. I'm certain that Susan will be happy to assist with her horsewhip. :nods: --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 15:13, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

I'd just like to remind everyone, esp. Susan, that I am a sysop, and have been very naughty.--PalMD-If it looks like a donut, eat it 15:20, 3 November 2007 (EDT)

Note, moving this here breaks the comment in the section before it on the article. So that needs to be edited now (to point to this section here). humanUser talk:Human 12:52, 5 November 2007 (EST)

My bad. I didn't want to turn the article into a tlak page but it became such so I "fixeed" it not knowing there was a reference to the "discussion" above. Thanks fer the real fix there Hu.CЯacke® 13:07, 5 November 2007 (EST)

I have temporarily protected this page against anonymous users, as it seems to be a heavy spam target.
