As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, IdiosyncraticLawyer, pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism. I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all? If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.
“”I fear death, and that's good. I will never overcome my fear of death, and that's not bad. "I fear death" are not the words of a coward but only those of a hero.
I'm a non-religious[note 1]agnostic[note 2]atheist[note 3] who regularly handles spelling, grammar, formatting, citations, & streamlining. I seldom add or alter substantive content. When I do, it's always either adding uncontroversial factual explanations from a neutral point of view or cutting out excessive snark/bias. I rarely post opinions on talk pages.
For those who wonder why I refrain from delving into this community's culture of some SPOV, humor, sarcasm, skepticism, satire, and wit, it's because I don't want to lose myself in an echo chamber. I perform copy editing because polishing something's aesthetics satisfies me regardless of that piece's contents. I add neutral, uncontroversial facts and eliminate clutter because it helps hone my writing skills. When I write opinion pieces, I always mark them as such and use talk pages. I have no desire to open my floodgates to whatever online bubble has accumulated in this pseudo-group blog. I can detect the pressure from reading and won't add to it by writing for it. Though I have much more to say about culture, I'm unskilled at synthesizing convoluted opinions and will spare you my trying.
