This guy sounds like a real cuckoo. I wonder when Andrew Schlafly will move to Budapest to avoid the "politics of education"? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:10, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

If this stuff is all quotes, can someone box them up like I did the first one, before we are tempted to start "editing" them? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:16, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

Is this page a work in progress or intentionally just text cribbed from other sources? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:44, 13 August 2009 (UTC)

I think there is some intention to it. In a way, it's a new kind of funny for us - just throw in a bunch of blockquotes that show how loony someone is without bothering to comment. I'm a gonna go fix the rest of the blockies now, if I were you I'd feel free to edit it any way you want. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:51, 14 August 2009 (UTC)
OK, wtf is up with my "p" and "/p" tags...?
I C&P'd this as the basis for editing it into an article, getting my sources all together. So thanks for knocking it into some sort of shape. I agree with Human that the quotes themselves stand on their own as some sort of indictment, although I had intended to do a referenced snark piece.

Still borken. Someone who cares please fix before I eviscerate? I've spent 20 minutes trying to get old versions of that site and am nowhere near finding what we "quote". And why are we bothering to quote a defunct website anyway? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:30, 17 August 2009 (UTC)
(One year later) It loks like the last "/" in that link was the problem. Anyway I uploaded a screencap. The reason for quoting a defunct site is that it contains information about the subject and probably written by him which shows how he regards himself. I must follow up this stuff a bit more. (Helpers always wanted.) BTW this is all apparently true and not parody. Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum disease 12:58, 19 August 2010 (UTC)

Shit[edit]

This article is. It consists of three tl;dr quotes by other people after an intro paragraph that I think is being sarcastic most of the time but is pretty unfunny all of the time. Who's up for a rewrite? ThunderkatzHo! 19:32, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

Rather than unilaterally deleting you might decide to chip in as it is linked to by other articles. Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum diseaseModerator 06:31, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Reversion[edit]

(Not sure of the etiquette for this kind of thing, apologies if I screw it up, this discussion is meant to happen elsewhere, etc.) Hey @Oxyaena, could you please let me know what your reason for reverting my recent edits was? Too many edits without talking it out first, or what? Thanks. Esoteric24 (talk) 06:43, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
