"I have a static IP, so I bet we can get along just fine with this, no?" The only problem there is that IPs are not memorable. So you'll always just be some number beginning with seven, at best, when it comes to remembering past interactions. Also, how certain are you that your IP is static? You paying extra for that? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:56, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Ah. You assume that my goal is to create a lengthy series of memorable interactions and thus to acquire a broader social identity. In fact, I would much prefer to be some number beginning with seven. It makes it considerably less likely that someone will do something nasty like suggest that I actually work on the project in some sincere and general way instead of fucking around for my own amusement. As for staticness, I'm certain enough that I can check my contributions list on Wikipedia and see months-old edits of mine on the IP. Or, at least, I could the last place I lived with the exact same ISP. Haven't really edited there since I moved. (talk) 06:03, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
Suit yourself, however as an ip you'll be restricted in various ways (captcha, 30 second edit limit... ) -- Nx / talk 06:07, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
I am well-suited, thank you. As I noted, I obtained administrator status on Wikipedia. Believe me when I say that captchas and 30 second edit limits are positively blissful in comparison to that restriction. (talk) 06:10, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
RW isn't WP, nor is it trying to be, and sysoppry doesn't mean much here. Just sayin'. Blue (pester) 20:17, 27 November 2010 (UTC)


hell no, the way we resolve disputes here is edit warring until one side leaves and never comes back. As an ip you'll be at a disadvantage though. -- Nx / talk 06:21, 27 November 2010 (UTC)

Human's usual mode of interaction with anyone is blindly reverting. Wait until he's throwing a three-day hissy fit and then go fix the articles, that usually works - David Gerard (talk) 19:59, 27 November 2010 (UTC)
