Burning the evidence[edit]

See the main article on this topic: Conservapedia:Burning the evidence

Hi, Is there a reason why you just deep-burned your own talk page? I'm pretty sure that's frowned upon. --Goatspeed. Stalk meCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I'm planning 06:31, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

The song before[edit]

was better imo. Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 08:36, 13 January 2021 (UTC)

For spending the entirety of that last coop case embarrassing yourself...[edit]

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
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.

-Flandres (talk) 04:51, 15 January 2021 (UTC)


Just a curious question - you have revoked the autopatrolled function I had. Why, and if I did something incorrect, what is it? Meow (talk) 17:35, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

It was given prematurely. You only made two edits to mainspace (and it would seem, at the time you were granted the status, only a single edit). I'd rather see a couple of days of competent good faith edits before seeing a new user have said status. That way your edits are flagged and it makes it easier for us to review and correct your edits-Hastur! (talk) 17:40, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh, no problem then. I thought it was something serious. Meow (talk) 04:33, 25 January 2021 (UTC)

Hey remove clear troll comments and keep them removed[edit]

I'm not a mod but I think it's good idea to remove comments from a highly recurring troll whose only intention is to try to spread their word as much as possible. It doesn't matter how mucb you perceive their comments as harmless. It is certainly not. Don't provide a space for them. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 22:38, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Do you have an issue with all pages related to property that aren't about science?[edit]

If so maybe also target this page? property Neiltyson1fan (talk) 16:07, 1 February 2021 (UTC)

Are you French?[edit] Kevs Ping! 09:34, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

yes, though I live in the States-Hastur! (talk) 15:45, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

Don't fuck with people's sysop bit[edit]

I don't care how much you think Oxy has poor judgement. You have no permission to remove sysop bits. You are not a moderator, nor do you have the backing of a community consensus to demote the user. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:43, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

It’s not a question of poor judgement, Oxy knows what she’s doing and is being very transparent. Today isn’t the first time she’s done this. Christopher (talk) 14:11, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
Truth is, these aren't even the worst exemples, she demoted even trolls. I think she does that because she believes these people will remain here if they're sysops. I remember people complaining about this habit of hers duing the coop too. GeeJayK (talk) 14:16, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
It's against the rules to promote people just because you disagree with their demotion, you have to take it to the Coop. Oxyaena Harass 14:18, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
You know no one is going to go to the coop over a user with 20 edits, which is why you think you can get away with this bullshit. Christopher (talk) 14:20, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I'm not a user with 20 edits. Sure, I'm no regular, but I've been here two years and have made substantive contributions to multiple articles. Splainer (talk) 14:30, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
If Oxy had only demoted you, I doubt we’d be having this conversation. Christopher (talk) 14:33, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
Bullshit? I'm the one who demoted CircularReasoning for one, who you should know I emphatically disagree with on many issues. You still can't just promote people unilaterally, that's an abuse of tech rights. I lost my tech rights cause I unilaterally promoted Raven when he had no edits. What's with the fucking double standards here? Oxyaena Harass 14:49, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I wasn’t there for the Raven situation, so I can’t comment. You were fine with my promotion yesterday, I don’t see the difference between the two situations. Christopher (talk) 15:00, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
We're talking about someone who's been here for two years and has made substantive edits versus someone who's only been here four days. Oxyaena Harass 15:02, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Four edits 2 years ago, disappears. Reappears, makes one edit to autism and a bunch of minor edits, makes one edit to ableism and a bunch of minor edits, one edit to RationalWiki, edit-wars over ableism a lot and discusses the edit-war on the talkpage. Why did you make this person a sysop? Christopher (talk) 15:09, 28 March 2021 (UTC)

I've never touched the autism article even though it is of immediate personal relevance to me. Splainer (talk) 15:11, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
They're talking about Scientologism is Bullshit, not you. GeeJayK (talk) 15:14, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
Hastur stripped my sysop rights solely on the basis of their beef against Oxyaena and those sysop privileges remain stripped. Splainer (talk) 15:17, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I don't think that's the case. Oxy demoted three users over the last few hours based solely on her political views, you're perhaps the only one that could become a sysop for now. GeeJayK (talk) 15:21, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I didn't ask to be "demoted" by Oxyaena. I've contributed to RationalWiki for two years (albeit sporadically) without feeling a lack of sysop tools. But I'm not going to be quietly fed the line that Oxyaena is some kind of rogue with regard to granting demotions. What I've experienced today is testament to the fact that she's not the only sysop who lets their personal feelings influence their sysoping/de-sysoping decisions. Splainer (talk) 15:51, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
To clarify; this comment purely was coming from Splainers promotion. I'm with the "be careful after new user who's been here for 4 days" shit, but this is Hastur fucking with the sysop bit of someone who has been here for over a year, has made substantial edits and pretty much has no reason to not be demoted to sysop. The comment has nothing to do with Scientology is bullshit et al. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 16:36, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I agree Hastur shouldn’t’ve promoted Splainer, but it’s not fair to say this has got nothing to do with the other users Oxy has demoted recently. Scientologism is bullshit was demoted within an hour of Splainer. Christopher (talk) 16:40, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I personally would say that Splainter's demotion was correct, just made for the wrong reasons. I believe Christopher agrees with me. GeeJayK (talk) 16:55, 28 March 2021 (UTC)
I disagree, of course. Should a junior editor make a mistake, it would reflect poorly on me not to correct them-Hastur! (talk) 05:51, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Oxy has been here since 2014. She's hardly a "junior editor". Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 09:15, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
And yet...-Hastur! (talk) 15:53, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Obviously the community disagrees with you, Hastur, and, again, when a fucking moderator tells you not to do something, you listen. Oxyaena Harass 11:35, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
lol yeah the community totally has your back, Oxy. Looking forward to the next vote on an interaction ban between you and god knows who else. Or maybe it will just be a regular ban again-Hastur! (talk) 15:53, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
They definitely don't have your back, and either way that ignores the question of you deliberately going against site policy and the word of a mod. Oxyaena Harass 15:59, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Please stop bringing up Oxyaena and interaction bans and whatever else[edit]

For the last time. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 14:31, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

Yes, of course. Why would I even comment on Oxyaena and interaction bans in discussions on Oxyaena and interactions bans-Hastur! (talk) 14:33, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
You inserted Oxy in a general discussion about interaction bans and other non-standard sanctions on ATIM, then went on my talkpage to complain about her requesting a self-block (this time through a message on the wiki so it's logged for all to see, as opposed to it being through internal convo's nobody can see). I'm politely asking you to knock that kind of behavior off. Find a page to edit or a saloon discussion to have a hot take on. It's probably a better use of your time than letting Oxy live in your head rent-free. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 14:36, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
There's probably a joke there about Oxyaena hating landlords but it's early for me so I'll let you come up with it-Hastur! (talk) 14:38, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
Please shut the hell up. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 14:40, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
Are you going to throw another tantrum and leave the wiki? I'm sure you'll get a bunch of users to sympathize with you and beg you to come back. I'm assuming that's what you want, feel free to correct me-Hastur! (talk) 14:41, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
As I said earlier, shut up. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 14:41, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
Hastur, may I suggest collecting stamps? Much better than letting Oxy dominate your life. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 14:43, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

What is Going On Hastur[edit]

People edit WIGOs all the time. Why is it this one time and at me you find objectionable when, just from revision history, Spud has been also editing??? This is such weird judgement from you. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 07:52, 15 May 2021 (UTC)

I was drunk, probably wouldn't have made an effort otherwise. Annoyed when Spud does it too. Other people's WIGOs should be edited sparingly, if you don't like a WIGO, just downvote it. Not particulary interested in going to war over this, though. Feel free to edit this post if you find it offensive in any way-Hastur! (talk) 17:42, 15 May 2021 (UTC)
I only change the actual text of the WIGO if there's a grammatical mistake in it. Admittedly, I do that quite often since one of our most prolific WIGO writers has a user name that identifies him in French as being a "European guy". I do it because I think it's unfair that a story highly relevant to our mission could be ignored or downvoted just because the WIGO is badly written and might be hard to understand as a result. I'd never rephrase the way a WIGO was written if there weren't any mistakes in it, not to clarify anything or because I didn't like the point of view or because I found anything in it offensive. But I'm not going to apologize for any edits I've ever made to existing WIGOs. Recently, someone used the wrong flag template and incorrectly identified the Taiwanese company Foxconn as being from Hong Kong. Why should I just let a mistake like that stand when I could easily fix it? Spud (talk) 00:04, 16 May 2021 (UTC)

Thank you once again.[edit]

I appreciate it. UShistoryanalyzer (talk) 02:03, 18 August 2021 (UTC)

You've read Foucault right?[edit]

I'm currently working my way through Discipline and Punish. Thoughts on which work I should think about next? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 02:30, 21 August 2021 (UTC)

I read Madness: Invention of an Idea a while back. In hindsight I don't think it was all that compelling (I will not elaborate). There's an essay he wrote called A Powderkeg Called Islam that I'm very curious about but failed to find (probably easier to find nowadays). To be honest with you I am not by any means a scholar so I don't know how qualified I am to recommend philosophy-Hastur! (talk) 02:35, 21 August 2021 (UTC)
I just thought you might have read one or two of his works that stood out to you. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:14, 21 August 2021 (UTC)


You've been nominated in the upcoming moderator elections. See the nomination at RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Nominations. Monet Ye 19:52, 3 November 2021 (UTC)


Hey, this is a quick thing; don't do shit like what happened on ATIM ever again. It brushed right up to the civility guidelines and arguably crossed it. Your comment in ATIM had zero to do with the case at hand and seems to just have been an attempt to turn the mob on Lefty. -- Techpriest (talk) 20:40, 5 January 2022 (UTC)

@Techpriest Until you cease following the antics of Kenpoot's double standards and issue an equal rebuke of GrammarCommie's bullshit [1][2], your crocodile tears truly fail to carry any weight. Ushit the dipshit (talk) 20:57, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
USH this does not involve you. Piss off. -- Techpriest (talk) 21:59, 5 January 2022 (UTC)
