Make yourself at home. SoCal But said it would be legal... 20:47, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

I will, thanks. I'm tired of sleeping in the office. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 20:49, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
"… by the way gentlemen, when do I have to stop proving I'm a human?". Won't be long: but to be fair you've not ben here an hour yet. (& some of us ain't gentlemen) Pippa (talk) 21:25, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Sorry Ms. Pippa, may I amend that to gentlefolk? ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:28, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Actually, "gentlemen" is a gender-neutral term around here. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 21:30, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Thanks, professor, I'll have to remember that one. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:36, 28 August 2011 (UTC)


Stubs can be categorized like this {{stub|Category}}. There is also a hotstubcat extension you can use if you'd like. Тytalk 22:14, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

Why thank you, but I'd prefer to do it the old fashioned way, for now at least. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 22:16, 28 August 2011 (UTC)


You seem like a genuine editor, so I added you to the RationalWiki:autopatrolled group, hopefully the CAPTCHA will not bother you anymore (((Zack Martin))) 10:06, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Thank you, but it is still there. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 10:39, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
It should stop it... but it doesn't... hopefully this will change things... in the meantime, you have been unilaterally demoted to Sysop... (((Zack Martin))) 10:52, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Wow, you guys must have some pretty low standards. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 10:52, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Oh yes, we do.... anyway, if Nx gives Autopatrolled skipcaptcha, I'll stop sysopping everyone who has been here for five minutes and whines about the captcha... until then, whiners are sysopped on sight...
Anyway, if you are too naughty, it's not hard to take it away again (((Zack Martin))) 10:55, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Alright, looks like I'm going to have to read the manual then. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 10:57, 29 August 2011 (UTC)


Hello fellow literary character! The unbusinesslikeman of business 02:08, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Hello. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 02:09, 29 October 2011 (UTC)

Concern trollWikipedia[edit]

You haven't got a clue what that means. A dissenting opinion is not concern trolling. Find a new label for people that say things you don't like--User:Brxbrx/sig 02:47, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

Yet you seem to dissent about everything. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 02:49, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
If you believe that (I don't- a lot of things on this site I disagree with are mostly because they're so overtly new atheist, but I have been a fan of skepticism- the debunking of pseuodscience, not the pointless hating of most of the world's population- for years and that is why I am here), then you should find a word for it that applies. I guess that simply troll would work. Or, you could behave rationally and address me. --User:Brxbrx/sig 03:06, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Imbecile. Pox. Pestilence. Blight on humanity... ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:13, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
So, will you make a template:Imbecilic pox on humanity? --User:Brxbrx/sig 03:15, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Perhaps, though there seem to be enough templates for you at the moment. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:16, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
There's a difference between a dissenting opinion and gross hypocrisy. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:20, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Who? Me or Brx? ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:23, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Brx, obviously. I find his persecution complex amusing, really. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:24, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

I like the cut of your jib[edit]

Carry on. Aceace 03:17, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

I shall kind sir. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:19, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Your IQ is 152 whereas mine is a mere 147. Nonetheless, we both have good cuts of jib. Aceace 03:20, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Are you a nautical man? ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:21, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
"Good cuts of jib" makes me think of steak more than sailing. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 03:22, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Am I a nautical man? No, I'm Afraid not. Aceace 03:23, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
Classic! ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:25, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

I would send you an email[edit]

But you have not activated it. Aceace 19:40, 13 December 2011 (UTC)

It is now. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 19:42, 13 December 2011 (UTC)
I have sent you data. And AIDs. Aceace 19:51, 13 December 2011 (UTC)


Please cease your harassment of Brxbrx. -- Nx / talk 21:32, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Please show me where I am violating the Community Standards. Until then screw off. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:38, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
RW:CS#Conduct -- Nx / talk 21:40, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I fail to see how restoring my comment after Brx deleted it would be considered harassment. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:41, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
That's your problem, not mine. -- Nx / talk 21:44, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
The stop reverting it and resume doing whatever it is you do. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:46, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
No, I mean the fact that you don't understand why what you're doing is harassment is not my problem. -- Nx / talk 21:47, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Then by all means please explain it to me. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:48, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Having a note from you and your sig in the middle of an archive list is annoying; continually re-inserting annoying stuff is harassment. Playing dumb about it is trolling. PintOfStout Talk Do you think expletives make you look intelligent? I dunno. Do you think being self righteous makes you look like a prick? 21:51, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
This place is well and truly dead. If reinserting a comment that was removed in violation of the community standards is harassment I shudder to think what is next. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:53, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
It's not. Users are allowed to remove trolling from their talk pages. Also, you're generally not supposed to insert your comments in the lead section, especially not in the archive list. You might think you were highly witty and original responding to Bricks' "Comments go below" instruction by posting immediately above it, but in reality you were just another mildly annoying dickhead jumping on the retarded "let's troll Bricks" bandwagon. -- Nx / talk 21:59, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
That's obviously vile trolling? What is this kindergarten? ArchieGoodwin (talk) 22:02, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
I ask myself that question quite often. -- Nx / talk 22:03, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Then leave me be. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 22:05, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Oh, I'm terribly sorry for bothering you. Please forgive me. -- Nx / talk 22:07, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Your fake concern brings tears to my eyes. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 22:09, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
No, I really am terribly concerned that I might have wasted a troll's valuable contributor's time. Please accept my most sincere apology. -- Nx / talk 22:11, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
The same to you. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 22:13, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Seems like a golden opportunity to try out that temporary sysoprevoke+block thing. Moderate, baby, please--User:Brxbrx/sig 21:34, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
Is it nice having an attack dog? ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:58, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Brx brings it all on himself but Nx just likes being a cunt. AceAce For Mod! 00:03, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

Check your email. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 00:07, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

How is leaving a snarky comment and your signature ...[edit] Brx's archives list at all productive? PintOfStout Talk Do you think expletives make you look intelligent? I dunno. Do you think being self righteous makes you look like a prick? 21:33, 3 January 2012 (UTC)

Because it amuses me. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 21:34, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
You can look forward to doing it again in a half-hour or so, then. PintOfStout Talk Do you think expletives make you look intelligent? I dunno. Do you think being self righteous makes you look like a prick? 21:35, 3 January 2012 (UTC)


Do you have a pywikipediabot install or something? TyBother me 02:32, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

I was the user for the bot account on our company's wiki, as I took a programming course in college. Of course, it was in C and pywikipediabot is in python so mostly I just use it to fix redirects when management moves pages around to fix typos in the title. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 02:34, 4 January 2012 (UTC)

This discussion was moved to Talk:Fenestra Research. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 02:25, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Time waster[edit]

please don't use fucking lame blocks to talk to me use my talk page you wasted me 8 clicks to save an edit. Best regards, Huw. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:03, 20 March 2012 (UTC)

Sorry. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:03, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
No big deal. But if people can't keep Proxima Centauri's garbage trimmed because she's a whiner, you gotta say it in a place that survives, then ask yourself "what am I doing here if I can't face down a whiner?" Seriously, she writes so much crap so badly, and has no "right" to do so. Some stuff she does is ok or even good, of course, so it's hard work. Was I the only one who cared enough about our content to monitor and fix her "contributions", also known as 75% tripe, 10% meh, and 15% useful? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:10, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
No, a few do. Ty guy appears to have left after being criticized for it. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:13, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
Glad to see some trying. Sorry to bite your head off for the 31 second block, but of course it hit while I clicked "save" and that is frustrating... ħumanUser talk:Human 03:36, 20 March 2012 (UTC)
No problem, I know the feeling. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:37, 20 March 2012 (UTC)


Pibot only actually comes around once a day, you know. Peter tanquam ex ungue leonem 02:53, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

It amuses me, and makes mornings so much less stressful. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 02:55, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
I'll be sure to only post on your talk page after 05:30 server time then, so that it sticks around. Peter tanquam ex ungue leonem 02:57, 8 April 2012 (UTC)
According to my nifty clock gadget pibot runs around 12:30am. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:02, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

Back down[edit]

You do realize that the majority of your edits on this site concern me, right? What do you think that says about you? Give it a rest.--"Shut up, Brx." 02:22, 2 June 2012 (UTC)

Yep. That you're an idiot for one. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 02:33, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
You stalk me across the wiki, and I'm the idiot in this story? Get a life--"Shut up, Brx." 02:59, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
"Stalk" You are an idiot. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:03, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
It appears all the lights aren't working upstairs. Perhaps you should get that checked.ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:01, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
yeah, Archie. Get a life. AceModerator 03:02, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
I don't know, lives are fucking over rated, and some people sorta demand to be stalked, just by their nature.--Green mowse.pngGodotWhen I graduated, Cognative Science of Religion didn't even exist! now it's everywhere 03:05, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
Stalking would imply effort beyond Ctrl-F Brx and a few mouse clicks. ArchieGoodwin (talk) 03:08, 2 June 2012 (UTC)
