My name is Simon. I acquired the nickname Spud when I was a tiny tot due to my fondness for mashed potato.

I'm from England. I was born in 1973 in Stratford-upon-Avon, which most definitely was the birthplace of the world's greatest writer, in spite of what some people might say.

Since 1997, I have been teaching English as a foreign language. I have lived and worked in Turkey, Poland and Japan. I have been living in Taiwan since April 2003.

I have been a RationalWiki editor since September 2011. I am currently a moderator and a member of the RationalWiki Foundation Board of Trustees.

The flag and national anthem of the place where I live.
Long live Ukraine!

Translations I've done

Well, I created the page anyway

Mi estas frenezulo!
Bouillabaisse, mon ami!
¡Tequila para todos!




BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I, Spud, 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.
Future.gif As an elected Moderator on RationalWiki: I, Spud, pledge to only rename users if they ask for it, or have unfunny usernames.
I furthermore pledge that if I do something wrong, it can't be me, because if the moderator does it, it is not a crime. I promise to do my job to the best of my ability.
