Board nomination[edit]

You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline here; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. Arcadium Trancefer (talk) 21:17, 22 July 2023 (UTC)

You know[edit]

Paywalled studies, like the one you mentioned, can often be read using Sci-Hub. Sci-Hub entries shouldn't be directly used on citations (copyright reasons), or probably even linked on talk pages, but many people use the site to read such papers. Chillpilled (talk) 18:35, 28 July 2023 (UTC)

Good information to know, thanks. BobJohnson (talk) 18:40, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
Yes, Sci-HubWikipedia is blocked in some countries because of copyright lawsuits. Bongolian (talk) 20:09, 28 July 2023 (UTC)
It's sometimes blocked on the ISP level as well. I know some British ISPs do this. In such cases people use Tor, VPN/proxies, or bots on Telegram which retrieve papers. Chillpilled (talk) 20:38, 28 July 2023 (UTC)


On second thought, I think there's been a misunderstanding. I do not in anyway condone the actions of Hamas. I misread your statement as being you don't empathize with the victims of Israeli, or that you empathize with the Israeli victims more. I took issue with that. My apologies.

Mod nomination[edit]

You've been nominated in the upcoming moderator elections. See the nomination at RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Nominations. Arcadium Trancefer (talk) 17:00, 5 November 2023 (UTC)

What songs keep you grounded?[edit]

It helps sometime to ground ourselves. It's not ever final, but it's kinda on always on the mind You don't have to rank them and of course I will go first. Reel Big Fish - Sell Out; Harvey Danger - Jack the Lion; Mystikal - Mr Hood Critic; John Prine - Knockin' on Your Screen Door.Torrent (talk) 05:55, 13 November 2023 (UTC)

I kind of like to bounce around random songs so not sure. :) Currently I'm listening to Modest Mussogorsky's Boris Godounov, but today's playlist had artists ranging from Herbie Hancock ("Mimosa") to Crosby Stills Nash and Young ("Carry On") to Me First and the Gimme Gimmes (their punked up cover of Scott McKenzie's "San Francisco").

suggestions were good, but nothing grounding. Big distrust. [User:Torrent|Torrent]] (talk) 02:26, 23 November 2023 (UTC)

Johns is spreading rumors about me[edit]

I know you're not interested in the internet drama between Johns and I, but he's been baselessly spreading rumors and conspiracy theories about me being the owner of the original channel he's attacking with anecdotal evidence. Can you please tell him to stop? To disprove this, here's my actual channel DaRealPrinceZuko (talk) 03:09, 11 February 2024 (UTC)

Simon Webb responded to his article[edit]

Johnson! (At the end of this video...)[edit]

Nah, for realsies. What do I call you? Baby doll? Honey boo? Babe? - Rairyu75 (Talk) 21:17, 6 March 2024 (UTC)

The name is a Mystery Science Theater 3000 reference actually, and of that list the name was chosen simply because I am *not* an ex-football player in a cheesy 1980s sci-fi movie. :)
But you can never have enough Bob (All hail slack!), so you can just call me that. BobJohnson (talk) 21:37, 6 March 2024 (UTC)


Can we speak on Discord? If so, what's your Discord user tag?

I'm not on Discord, sorry. BobJohnson (talk) 23:50, 15 June 2024 (UTC)

Yeah, but where can we discuss in private? I don't want sickos seeing my planned discussion between us, because I don't want them causing harm to any innocent.
