Why are you vandalizing my rationalist criticism of the article?[edit]

Do you seriously not understand the argument I made? Or do you just not personally agree with it? I think it is legible english. Did it have some big words that confused you?LogicMaster777 (talk) 21:39, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

TY TiaC for moving, should not be on user pageLogicMaster777 (talk) 21:50, 22 February 2015 (UTC)
LogicMaster(your insulting name is getting tiresome), I looked at many of your edits before reverting them and you say in several places "data not shown", so I'm confident you're hearing this for the first time. You also refuse to accept that going to church deters talk pollution. Do yourself a favor and admit that the half-life of Carbon-14 may have only been 100 years at the time of Christ. Unlike Wikipedia, which is plagued with liberal bias and gossip, Conservapedia is a true learning resource that enables students to excel. Thanks and Godspeed.--aschlafly 21:58, 22 February 2015 (UTC)

That was fun to watch[edit]

The part before your trip up to Bedfordshire. Thanks for the entertainment! Tuppy Glossop (talk) 17:12, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

But seriously, "Bicycle Wheel" (what an absurd user name that is), homosexuality is so prevalent among Canadians that I hardly think a citation is needed to demonstrate it. I wasted time with your unsubstantial additions and you fail to mention that liberals censor classroom prayer, so anyone with an open mind can see that you're easily taken in by Hollywood Values. Open your mind and admit that Conservapedia helps resist school shootings. Believe what you like, but Fred Phelps is a liberal and a Democrat. I'm moving on to more productive topics on this site, and hope you can do likewise. Take your message to the general public, to a court of law, to a respected institution, or to your parents and see how many agree with you. ZERO.--aschlafly 17:12, 23 February 2015 (UTC)

Hello, Bicycle[edit]

Hello, Bicycle Wheel.

For the past few weeks, I have been arguing for the inclusion of pro-life arguments on the abortion and/or pro-life page. However, I have faced unreasonable opposition, with others constantly destroying the content I generate. In particular, I have struggled to incorporate the "right to life" argument, the "numerical argument", and others onto either of these pages. I admit to faults in my conduct in my writing, and I aim to revise these. However, I am enmeshed in a perpetual war of revisionism--I generate missing content, and the "guardians" of the page immediately excise my content. I never touch their content--I just contribute that which is missing. I have plans to clarify this content and resubmit it--so I am not expecting you to find the current content acceptable--it can be improved. I just need someone to arbitrate what is a clear case of the majority marginalizing the minority. If you could please speak up, go to the bottom of the abortion talk page, and determine whether the behavior you find is acceptable of unacceptable, I would deeply appreciate it. I am becoming sick from irrational rationalists. I do not feel well, and I feel unjustly persecuted. You can be the judge.

Thank you.

Election debates[edit]

Loved your summary of the debates. I tuned in for precisely fifteen seconds, and it struck me that the host lady looked a lot like Ann Robinson and the whole thing looked just like The Weakest Link. Did you get that vibe too? Pascal yuiop (talk) 20:18, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

I didn't watch it - I don't have a telly. BicyclewheelModerator 21:03, 3 April 2015 (UTC)

Coop archive[edit]

I may have broken it. RationalWiki:Chicken_coop/Archive_list doesn't show archive 37. If you're still here, can you offer help or advice? Cheers, Alec Sanderson (talk) 15:56, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

It does now. It just had to take a while to work through RW's...interesting...caching system. BicyclewheelModerator 16:04, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. I still don't see it, but am willing to wait a while. Alec Sanderson (talk) 16:06, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

Stinking Bishop[edit]

Actually Stinking Bishop was added later by Monty Python. See the Wikipedia entryWikipedia. Bongolian (talk) 07:43, 26 May 2015 (UTC)

...and this is in regards to what, exactly? BicyclewheelModerator 19:26, 26 May 2015 (UTC)
Camembert, perhaps?
Ah! We have camembert, yes, sir.
You do! Excellent.
Yes, sir. It's... a bit runny.
Not me. I never said any such thing. Tuppy Glossop (talk) 19:34, 26 May 2015 (UTC)


Will you PLEASE actually look at what I'm removing?
What is in the archive DUPLICATES what is on my talk page. There is no need for duplication. --Castaigne (talk) 19:14, 17 June 2015 (UTC)

Ah, Ok. I was looking for an explanation in the edit comment and didn't see one, so I assumed shenanigans. My bad. BicyclewheelModerator 19:16, 17 June 2015 (UTC)


When asked to fix numerous simple errors, the editor in question replied that he/she didn't care, because their making mistakes and leaving them behind "created work for wikignomes." If you want to pick up after someone like that, be my guest. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 18:21, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

It's easy to pop in and say it's not a big deal for a single edit...when people who have been correcting these issues over the course of a few days are frustrated doing it so many times. Even when yesterday the BoN racked up over 100 edits. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 18:28, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
How about raising the issue with the contributor in question. And aren't you making the style over substance fallacy? (talk) 17:06, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

User Bicycle_wheel is a crazy conspiracy theorist[edit]

Is that the best you can do? Ho hum. BicyclewheelModerator 20:45, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Forum:Fat Aardvark[edit]

U mug what are you doing making mean pages like dis?--Fat Aardvark (talk) 16:51, 30 July 2015 (UTC)

To make it REALLY secret...[edit]

...or, at least, as secret as your power user rights level allows you to, you'd have to change the visibility of the revision.</smartassmode>--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 21:08, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

I'd tell you if I have the power to do that, but it's a secret. BicyclewheelModerator 21:11, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Then send it via unencrypted email! WalkerWalkerWalker 21:14, 13 August 2015 (UTC)


They're indented to show subcategories, and the colors are matched to the navsidebars. While I'd gladly support color changing, having diff color nav templates on a page for one subject is gross. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 23:41, 5 September 2015 (UTC)


When inserting controversial claims into articles, please make sure to provide valid citations. Thank you! Typhoon (talk) 08:57, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

I answered on the proper page but ...[edit]

I'd still like to claim, that I'm only moderately insane. Peace? Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 21:18, 12 September 2015 (UTC)


are you still planning on leaving?--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 01:07, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

No, that was after the Farcebook clusterfuck last year. However, I'm thinking of not running for mod. BicyclewheelModerator 10:17, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

you can intercom![edit]

David has revealed his inability to help - can you make an intercom for what I asked him to do?--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 00:21, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Paravant, everyone who is registered can. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:21, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Being able to and knowing how to are very different things. In theory I can run a nuclear power plant, anybody can, but that doesn't mean I actually know how to do so. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 00:22, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
You are a moderator and since Bicycle can send site wide urgent messages on the intercom I suspect that's all that's required (considering I can send other types, but not site wide urgent being only a sysop). <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:27, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Whoever made the intercom is the devil. It does not work. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 00:42, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Works fine for me, I love misusing it. Make sure you're filling out the summary and all fields, as when I don't do that it fails. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:46, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

AFD Preload[edit]

Thanks, I was gonna do that FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 04:23, 10 November 2015 (UTC)

How is it a keep?[edit]

All the votes except one for RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Transitioning neckbeard were for deletion? Carpetsmoker (talk) 08:43, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

You'd have to ask the person who kept it. I just did the AfD page admin. And most of those delete votes were actually to merge. BicyclewheelModerator 08:51, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

Your to-do list[edit]

Isn't ancient Indian nuclear war already covered in Mohenjo-daro? Do you want to make an expanded separate article or? SJW army spokesman (talk) 01:14, 23 November 2015 (UTC)

I didn't know that. Thanks! BicyclewheelModerator 11:15, 23 November 2015 (UTC)


I don't understand why you did that. Is something wrong? Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyarnyar~) 18:10, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

I am tired and pissed off and not in the mood to play stupid games with juvenile dickheads. BicyclewheelModerator 18:11, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Okay. I'm sorry. You suddenly blocked me out of nowhere and, with the all-capital letters, I thought you were joking around. Simply leaving me a message that you were upset about something would have been enough. What you did just confused me and made me feel sad, and I still don't understand what happened. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyarnyar~) 18:17, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
What happened was I came home tired and pissed off, and I was trying to re-insert a thread to the saloon bar. You edit-conflicted me three times by piss-arsing about, and when I blocked you for five minutes so I could finish what I was doing, you counter-blocked me for a ludicrous length of time. That's what happened. BicyclewheelModerator 18:27, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
Please don't be mean to me. There was no way for me to know that. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyarnyar~) 18:36, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
I know, sorry :( Buy you a goat? BicyclewheelModerator 18:37, 25 November 2015 (UTC)
This sounds suspiciously like the RW version of ISIS and captive women... :/ WalkerWalkerWalker 18:56, 25 November 2015 (UTC)

To all:

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

I'm taking my time trying to add more stuff to the RWhistory, since you've made an edit there I will now pounce on you to solicit further help. You where around back then (2011) I wasn't. I'm sifting through various pages looking for a concerted explanation or narrative on what exactly the big crisis was that the user group rights changes were meant to fix. I have the general idea, but was there some specific impetus behind all the fuss? (and can you link me to it?)SolPyre (talk) 23:33, 5 December 2015 (UTC)

well it was kind of AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA nope, sorry, still too soon. BicyclewheelToxic mowse.gif 17:38, 6 December 2015 (UTC)
Nvm I found it. And nothing can stop me now! SolPyre (talk) 23:43, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

Referencespace and Atticspace[edit]

Would referencespace be the stuff in Category:Reference pages? I'd like that a lot, actually.

Atticspace, tho? Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 20:28, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

Referencespace - yes, those, plus plain encyclopedic science and maths articles such as things in Category:Outline. Atticspace would have been for stuff that was off-mission, non-fun, but kept for sentimental value (or sometimes to stop one user having a colossal drama fit because we didn't like his article). BicyclewheelToxic mowse.gif 20:35, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
Hehe. I like that. Perhaps "draftspace", to give it a more general use -- somewhere we can shove articles that aren't ready and aren't funny? αδελφός ΓυζζγςατΡοτατο (talk/stalk) 20:51, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
Draft articles normally start in userspace. And on a wiki, aren't all articles "drafts" in a way, ie unfinished? BicyclewheelToxic mowse.gif 20:52, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
Tru. Atticspace feels quirky in a RW way, too. Would proposing at Saloon Bar do anything? Herr FuzzyKatzenPotato (talk/stalk) 21:04, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
It didn't the last couple of times, but who knows, maybe the new generation will decide in favour. BicyclewheelToxic mowse.gif 21:06, 19 December 2015 (UTC)
