Have you considered signing up? There is a free Mei with every signing. -- =w= 02:42, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Been there, done that, bailed out. See User:Tricksy

But you're still posting. You still participate. -- =w= 03:04, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

Still posting, as an outsider. See my recent comment on talkwigoask 03:41, 18 November 2009 (UTC)

You're editing with your IP openly exposed. I mean, sure we can't find out which street in Brisbane you live on, but we can certainly find out which city. And that's like two seconds in. I imagine with a portmapping, we could find a vulnerability, or maybe just DDoS you... honestly, you're better off contributing with a regular name rather than an IP. It's not like you're being anonymous... --Eira OMTG! The Goat be Praised. 02:38, 14 September 2010 (UTC)
Thanks, Eira, but it's not about anonymity. Occasionally I log in, but usually not. I do find a little disturbing your implication that Rats are an inherent threat unless one remains anonymous. Likewise the fact that you went looking (even if only "two seconds in"), especially as you haven't portrayed yourself as the most stable and self-controlled character. BTW I don't live in Brisbane.

Formal warning[edit]

Calling us rats is uncivil namecalling. You must retract that and apologise or face a sanction. -- Nx / talk 00:38, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

I didn't call you rats. I said "Rats" which was long ago established as "not a problem". It is short for "Rationalist" in my vocab (which is in fact charitable in many cases), and "RationalWikian" here generally. Apart from that, I will retract and apologise at such time as all occurrences of uncivil namecalling of YEC's in general and me in particular are retracted with apology. Or is consistency as unneccesary as truth around here? (talk) 02:43, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh ok, I forgot you IDiots are so good at reinventing words. -- Nx / talk 02:53, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

users should not delete or change another user's comments on a talk or discussion page[edit]

Damn right, so why are you doing it on WIGO talk:ASoK? Please cease, or I will be forced to toss you in the vandal bin. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 05:22, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

The entry I reverted was an addition to another user's sig. Want to make a jibe? Then make a separate post and sign it.  Lily Inspirate me. 05:24, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
Not intended at such. Fixed now. (talk) 06:02, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
He thought he was being clever by saying Sterile is the pot calling the kettle black and suggesting Sterile (and all RW people over there?) craps on aSk pages. But he's not clever at all: he's a creationist. Nutty Roux (talk) 12:46, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

Information icon.svg This is the discussion page for an anonymous user who has not created an account yet, or who does not use it.

We therefore have to use the numerical IP address to identify them. Such an IP address can be shared by several users. If you are an anonymous user and feel that irrelevant comments have been directed at you, please create an account or log in to avoid future confusion with other anonymous users.
