"Narad is a tremendous douche suffering from Dunning-Kruger."

This seems like an argumentum ad argumentum ad hominem, given that we're not trying to debate their ideas, just stating that they are a tremendous douche suffering from Dunning-Kruger. $₽ℛ₶₲₲₶₦₳ (₮₳£Q) (₡¤₦₮ℛ₶฿$) @ 22:57, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
That is a highly subjective opinion, stated in rude, puerile terms. It should have no place here. — Unsigned, by: Megsaint / talk / contribs

I note that this edit was made by former window-washer Travis Schwochert, who has been repeatedly banned for sockpuppetry at RI. Whatever; it's true that the former Herr Doktor Bimler was the wittiest commenter. Might as well stet it. Narad from RI (talk) 21:28, 25 January 2018 (UTC)
