You have been smitten by a bunny in accordance with the community standards for... no real reason. Feel free to revert this odd edit.

This is where I keep some stuff and play about.

Hello and welcome to my talk page. Not being a smart chap I'll reply on this page to any comments on this page.--Bob_M (talk) 01:59, 28 May 2007 (CDT)

Ryulong and Exiled Encyclopedist[edit]

Go here. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 16:01, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Religion vs Evolution[edit]

Feel free to delete this message once you get it. I just wanted to let you know that I added a section on the talk page for the evolution article, to address the "disclaimer" that I noticed you tried to improve and then decided to just get rid of. Do we need it? I don;t know.... probably not, but there may be some value to be found in the overall concept. Here's a link straight to the talk page... Talk:Evolution ...just to make it easier. :) DonaldKronos (talk) 22:47, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks for that, good of you to let me know. (Incidentally, you may not be aware but deleting talk material is not permitted on this wiki.)--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 07:39, 3 January 2015 (UTC)

Nomination to Board of trustees[edit]

It's occured. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 05:37, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Reminder: You only have until 26 January to accept your nomination. FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 05:37, 23 January 2015 (UTC)


Cheers, Bob. Not sure I want it, actually. Scream!! (talk) 17:40, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Then you are like the speaker in the house of commons. :-)--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 18:11, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
Now that's just plain nasty! :-) Scream!! (talk) 18:20, 7 February 2015 (UTC)
¨Ho ho". No problems. Russian1.gif--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 18:42, 7 February 2015 (UTC)

Obvious error is obvious (post facto...) - The James Ossuary thing[edit]

Hi Bob,

Sorry about not using the talk page, but I actually thought the BoN's reference to the Open Journal article on the James Ossuary was posted on the talk page - hence the nature of my response. I've copy/pasted both the BoN's post and my response to it at the talk page for future reference (if I'm allowed a wee bit of bitching, undoing rather than moving it seemed a bit harsh/lazy, but of course not out of bounds). ScepticWombat (talk) 20:03, 17 April 2015 (UTC)

Errrr - What? When? Who? .... Checks history.... Thinks ... When the hell did I do this? Response - after quite a few drinks. Conclusion - It would have been much better to cut and paste to the talk page. Further conclusion - I must have strong words with my less sober editing personality and suggest that he should be a bit less of a jerk. Thanks for bringing it up. :-) --Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 19:32, 19 April 2015 (UTC)
No worries - and cheers! ;-) ScepticWombat (talk) 20:27, 19 April 2015 (UTC)

For some reason...[edit]

My signature isn't working properly. It's supposed to transclude my signature template but it either substitutes or just displays plain text. Some help please? LlamaPastor31 Poe's Law is the greatest - and vice versa. 23:27, 8 June 2015 (UTC)

worked here Herr FüzzyCätPötätö (talk/stalk) 23:32, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
No it didn't, that's another template. Not my signature template. LlamaPastor31 Poe's Law is the greatest - and vice versa. 23:44, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
I'm afraid that I have no idea. You might try the Saloon Bar or here. Good luck.--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 05:36, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Nomination for RationalMedia board election[edit]

You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. Fuzzy "Cat" Potato, Jr. (talk/stalk) 18:55, 26 June 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for thinking of me but - I'm really not around here that much now and I also don't like a lot of what happens these days or the direction the site seems to be taking. I guess I should be be active and, if I want something different, fight for that. But, frankly, I lack the energy. :-( Thanks again though.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 10:42, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
NP. If I might ask, why do you dislike the site direction? 32℉uzzy; 0℃atPotato (talk/stalk) 10:46, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
I mean, we could just step up the Percy if that's what you need to regain your vigor? :3 All the best buddy, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:55, 27 June 2016 (UTC)
To be honest, I would prefer to keep my own council on that as I have no great desire to get involved in a debate about it. Sorry.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 06:08, 28 June 2016 (UTC)
Honestly, that is quite disappointing since Old Guard™ tends to be respected but I understand your refusal.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 06:36, 28 June 2016 (UTC) 06:36, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

Jeez its been ahwile[edit]

Remember that summer holiday we all took on your education wiki when RW went down in '08/09? Ah memories. Acei9 21:02, 3 August 2016 (UTC)

Hi Ace. Yes, time passes. But, like you, I'm not around here very much these days. I still open the door a few times a month though to see what is going on.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 15:33, 4 August 2016 (UTC)

I'd hate to bother you here, but I have no other way (TEFLpedia is broken)[edit]

See this topic here. I was going to "e-mail this user" over there, but apparently there's no button to do so on your talkpage (and your userpage is broken). Again, sorry to bother you here, but I had no other ideas. Blurb (talk) 01:20, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

. Ok. thanks.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 07:08, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
So the problem is that the site is 303 for you when you try to edit?--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 07:19, 13 September 2016 (UTC)
It particularly seems to affect userpages. If, for example, you click on your own (Bob M) user page, you will see a 403 error. Blurb (talk) 08:53, 13 September 2016 (UTC)

Amusing editor eh?[edit]

You recently mentioned on my page that you consider me amusing... If so, please, join me on my newest essay talk page... --Kingdamian1 (talk) 23:56, 19 June 2017 (UTC)

It's not your funniest work.--Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 12:55, 20 June 2017 (UTC)

Rollback edit[edit]

I'm sorry for that rollback, I like clicking on things and I accidentally hit the "rollback" button and I attempted to stop the page from loading but it was too late. БaбyЛuigiOнФire(T|C) 21:55, 30 December 2017 (UTC)

It's OK. Happy New Year. :-) --Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 07:19, 31 December 2017 (UTC)
