You're back![edit]

Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 15:34, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

I suppose I am. And I have absolutely no idea why, though it probably is an indirect result of the times I've visited Conservapedia over the last few years.
I guess I've come back with a slightly different frame of mind... I feel like deleting everything I've written, since it was probably either hotheaded, rash, irrational, or it doesn't reflect my current views... must resist this urge...
Anyway, thanks for noticing :) Lyra § talk 03:33, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Champion of Liberty[edit]

As a reward for services to mankind, liberty, progress, the constitution, and freedom, you have just been conferred the great honour of [Champion of Liberty] 86.40.106.235 (talk) 10:29, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
While I definitely believe in the causes of humankind, liberty, progress, etc., I'm just trying to be impartial. Even though being a sysop is looked down upon here, it is a position of authority, authority that should be used rationally and without bias. Thanks, I suppose.

86.40.x.x[edit]

Troll Jack Hughes (talk) 12:43, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Meh, suppose you're right... Lyra § talk 13:26, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

You've just been upgraded[edit]

You are now the Goddess, Liberty. Your defense of civil liberties shall never be forgot. 86.40.106.235 (talk) 13:40, 5 August 2010 (UTC)
Keep fighting the good fight, Lyra! Quarujellybean - You can't explain that! 13:45, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay[edit]

I re-read that and other beginner's guide to edit with a more rationalist POV and try to find the sources for some things I put on them.

BTW some of my sources come are books. Can you tell me how to source those?

User:Mectrixctic 05:41, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

I don't think RW has a definitive source formatting policy, so I think putting the title and author (and if you really want to make your point unassailable, page number) is fine. Remember, hot... science... Rationalwiki. In that order. All the best. Lyra § talk 05:48, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Okay, Also when you said "I wish I was a bureaucrat so I could make you a sysop so I could joke block you! :)" were you talking to me, and was that a good thing?

User:Mectrixctic 06:16, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Heh I wasn't saying I wanted to block you. Joke blocks are quite frequent here... but obviously only funny if the target can unblock themself. Lyra § talk 06:18, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Well, I know that, but I also noticed that you took out the "religion is fairy tales" bit.

06:43, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Yes. While a lot of people here are atheists, myself included, there are a fair amount of (even slightly) religious folk. Lyra § talk 06:44, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
And we try not to alienate them, even though they cling to their guns and religion. Lyra § talk 06:45, 8 August 2010 (UTC)


To be fair, if someone has religion, they'll believe that all the others are fairy tales. Plus, the article of Satan says the Bible and Koran are works of fiction. User:Mectrixctic 18:41, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Pat on the back[edit]

You've done a good job since returning. Thus, I am giving you a pat on the back for your service to this here Wiki. Congrats, and keep up the good work. Clapping.gif The Goonie 1 What's this button do? Uh oh.... 06:27, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

I appreciate that. Thanks. Lyra § talk 06:37, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
No need to thank me. You're the one doing the good job. Lord Goonie Hooray! I'm helping! 06:39, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Your experiment[edit]

I like it. Unfortunately, we've tried that before and it worked for about a day. Now, if you can find a common ground with the majority to do that, it may, thankfully, be the exception to the rule of "let the troll win". The Spikey Punk I'm punking my punk! 06:57, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Hm. Thanks for the feedback. I looked at the other version of this, and I tried to make a few improvements on it: this one is light gray and makes the text inside it light gray (I could do small tags too), it is easier to use, in my opinion. I see the conflicts over he-who-must-not-be-named and I'm trying to make a way that avoids having to delete but still kind of achieves the effect... Lyra § talk 07:06, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
No, I get it/ And good on you for trying to come up with a solution. I'm just warning you that, if you start doing that, do not, under and circumstance, then respond to or otherwise feed the troll. It is imperative that you do that. Otherwise, your template will not work. Just a hint from someone who tried and failed at dealing with the troll once. AnarchoGoon Swatting Assflys is how I earn my living 07:11, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
And, by "do not respond, I also mean "do not revert". The Goonie Punk Can't sleep, clowns will eat me! 07:13, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I see. Well, I think I'll try it out and see if any good comes of it. (But with MC trying to leave for good...) Lyra § talk 07:35, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Sounds good. All I'm saying is: good luck. And if you need any moral support, feel free to hit up your local Gooniepunk. Cheers! Lord Goonie Hooray! I'm helping! 07:41, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
I'll be sure to. Salut! Lyra § talk 08:04, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks![edit]

Thanks so much for the welcome, hopefully I'll be able to keep my mind open here and avoid any "talk talk talk". Thedoctorisin (talk) 21:12, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Nonsense! Talk is good. Besides, it's about 75% of RW. Wave.gif Lyra § talk 21:42, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

Queer Theory[edit]

You undid an edit of mine on the Gay Rights page, under the Queer Theory section, and asked for an explanation. Please read and comment on my explanation on the article's talk page. --Mqduck (talk) 08:10, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

I have. For future reference, do this on the user talk page (that link in my signature). I'm going to transfer this there. Lyra § talk 08:19, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

Your the best...[edit]

Thanks for cleaning up my brain-dead cut/copy/paste on Hubble. Feel free to hurl abuse when I do crap like that...I'm easy. ArtifexMayhem (talk) 05:42, 12 August 2010 (UTC)

No problem. Bit of a weird mistake though : ) Lyra § talk 06:41, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
Weird mistakes are a specialty of mine...just ask me wife...or one of the cats, except the hairless one...he is still a bit grumpy about the whole affair.ArtifexMayhem (talk) 07:49, 12 August 2010 (UTC)
