Suggested funny names[edit]

So Dick Coughlan, the genius that he is put out an anti-Milo video here. But during the video he came up with a fun nickname. Milo Yankinoffkidsalot. Think we should have this as a joke strikethrough like some of our other articles? Zero (talk - contributions) 02:18, 2 March 2017 (UTC)

No, and no. Also, the others should probably be removed, they encourage the desperately unfunny to think they're amusing - David Gerard (talk) 12:12, 3 March 2017 (UTC)

Adding descriptors[edit]

Because I have hit a snag with previous edits on articles of proven scumbags, I'll ask before making the actual edit. In the lede, can I add that he is a noted misogynist, pedophilia apologist (probably even a pedophile), racist, science-denialist, conservative, and Catholic? All of those things have been proven, so adding them should be a no-brainer, but again, some people on here would rather idly stand by than calling out evil when they see it.

If you want to write some lawsuit-bait that's 3edgy5us poltroons, you could always start your own blog and do it there - David Gerard (talk) 23:27, 19 April 2017 (UTC)
Isn't it why we have categories? Again, show, don't tell. It's more productive to describe his actions and let the reader come to her own conclusions than labeling people right off the bat. It's not "mincing words because feelings might be hurt", it's not being "soft" on known evil doughnut cavities, it's a known tried and true writing technique. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 01:05, 20 April 2017 (UTC)

Whinging Selfish Brats[edit]

Regarding the pedo-sympathising controversy, I don't think the following video has been covered by the article. I think it's worse than the Joe Rogan and Drunken Peasants one. In it, he calls child sex abuse victims whinging selfish brats for "suddenly remembering 20 years later and deciding that it's a problem."

Otto Weininger[edit]

Does anyone else notice similarities between Milo and Weininger? They share everything except intellectual depth: anti-Semitism, Jewish self-hate, misogyny and internatilized homophobia (more serious in the case of Weininger). — Unsigned, by: 190.174.32.180 / talk
