Apology for my unfunny vandalism on other userpages[edit]

I didn’t realize that you’re not supposed to edit other userpages. I’m sorry. — Unsigned, by: BadPiggies 9 / talk / contribs

It's fine. Just please don't do it again. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 17:46, 22 October 2018 (UTC)

I responded to your comment on my talk page. You might not have seen it because I didn't ping you. By the way, I removed the categories from your user page since those categories are not meant to include user pages. You can use the subcategories in Category:RationalWikians though.

Your recently created article[edit]

Is there a reason you chose a very strange way to present the information in October 2018 United States mail bombing attempts? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 02:55, 30 October 2018 (UTC)

@LeftyGreenMario “Very strange”? How so? B'P"9 17:32, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
You were putting information into very narrow tables that pad the length of the article and impedes on its readability. Why? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 18:50, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario Oh, I see. We should probably turn all of the subsections in the “timeline” section into boxes. How does one do that, exactly? B'P"9 21:34, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario UPDATE: Nevermind, I have seen the page, and I don’t seem to remember putting the data into a bunch of wiki tables. B'P"9 21:39, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario Is it the table that you don't like? I put that in because I thought it looked better and was more compact. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 23:09, 30 October 2018 (UTC)
@DuceMoosolini Ah, no. I was referring to the very first revision, which Spud complained about the white space. It is more readable now (your table is fine), but check the very first revision of that page. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 05:45, 1 November 2018 (UTC)

Extensive use of crossed-out text...[edit]

I spend a lot of my time deleting crossed-out text because it is lame and unfunny. Try to refrain. Acei9 07:39, 4 November 2018 (UTC)

Moderator eligibility guidelines[edit]

Please remember to read RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Nominations before nominating users for modship as I am actually ineligible, having edited for <6 months. — pythoncoder  (talk | contribs) 21:26, 12 November 2018 (UTC)

You're welcome[edit]

I think being the biggest prick around who also demoted you, you should at least give a little credit to the King of Douches, am I right? Of course I am.--Byron Wannabe (talk) 12:02, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

@Don Juan So soon? I thought their ruling on my edit-war drama episode last month was to wait for a few months of me making some quality edits before giving me the mop back? Anyway, thx. I solemnly swear to never abuse my largely defensive weapon of banhammer again. How's my editingCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 02:25, 29 November 2018 (UTC)

Another anti-atheist website[edit]

Hey, I found another heavily anti-atheist wingnut website. Here it is. Incoming article. TheEOE (talk) 22:11, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

A draft has been created, but I still need to work on it. TheEOE (talk) 22:39, 9 December 2018 (UTC)

Largely defensive weapon of mop[edit]

I think this is a good enough time for me to restore your mop as long as you pinky-promise not to misuse it. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 18:44, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Template:Ken debate45,000.00 USD only? That's peanuts!
See also: Atheism and uncharitableness, etc., etc.

t 14:15, 2 January 2019 (UTC)

You're absolutely right, @Joaquín Martínez. Doesn't seem to be enough. How much do you think the real Ken would charge for a "debate"? If he really does have as much machismo as he repeatedly insists he has, then he would have raised the price to, I dunno, the price you put in the header? But then again:
It’s because the man is a coward. A craven cur with a yellow streak wider than the Yangtze River. A mental midget, with the debating skills of a newt. He is possessed of a liver that even the most lily-livered of chickens would disown.

--Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 02:01, 15 January 2019 (UTC)

Some advice: Your best friend seems to have a habit of using people's personal information against them, e.g. Mercian's health and Ace's NZ nationality. Not saying that my own editing history has been perfect, but your editing behavior seems to reveal a lot about yourself, particularly your user page. CP/RW drama aside, this still doesn't seem wise in real life. Do delete this comment (if you wish). But do take note. t 16:10, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
@Joaquín Martínez Other than my real first name (which is a very common Indian boy's name), I can't really think of that much else I've revealed so far. And also, he won't be able to use the "atheism and obesity" thing against me (see the archives, and you'll see what I mean). --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 19:46, 27 January 2019 (UTC)
@Joaquín Martínez UPDATE: I've just added some new options for the price on the Ken debate generator that are closer to the more realistic number that you added. --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 03:08, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Kiko Garcia[edit]

If you had looked at User:Kiko Garcia's contributions (Special:Contributions/Kiko_Garcia), you would have seen that the person was only spamming us. Bongolian (talk) 04:56, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

I had already read what he wrote and it was quite hurtful to be honest because my sister is a victim of that. Thank you for watching out for me. Hugs. Public School Girl (talk) 03:03, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

Oh, don't mention it. Just doing what sysops do- cleaning up. Also, apparently that troll is a sock of some harasser with no life, who keeps creating new sockpuppet accounts every few hours and wishing death/assault upon random mods/sysops. In fact, they were even renamed to "@I waste my time on easily-reverted trolling"; lol so fitting! --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 03:10, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
I agree that is a good name for him. I just don't understand why people have to be so mean. Public School Girl (talk) 03:25, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
And here are some even more hilarious names given to the assholes who come to troll here: "@Transphobe idiot has no life", "@I get turned on making stupid accounts in RationalWiki" (mystery solved!), @Looks like you are running out of ways of calling someone you don't like a guy so I renamed you so you have another chance to make another username like this, or @LGM is a good moderator and can improve usernames (LMAO @LeftyGreenMario's renames crack me up sometimes!). --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 03:44, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
I mean, you would probably call me a transphobe, but there's no need for this guy to be a jerk about it knowing that this site isn't going to agree with him. Public School Girl (talk) 03:50, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
Actually no; transphobia isn't just simply viewing non-binary gender identity or non-cisgenderedness as being unbiblical or something. If you start obsessing about "two genders" and fighting to deny such people their rights and status as humans, then I'd consider it as transphobia- like TERFs or that drive-by idiot who keeps coming back. --Goatspeed.

There is about zero chance that File:Momo.jpg is public domain, you might want to use a fair use tag instead. — Dysk (contribs) 22:58, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Hello, again[edit]

Hey,there. It's been a while, but did the idea of making more atheophobia-related articles get ditched? TheEOE (talk) 20:25, 31 March 2019 (UTC)

@TheEOE Oh yeah... no it didn't. I'm still open to working on it. --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 00:42, 1 April 2019 (UTC)

Aw, man[edit]

You are more forgiving of punny people than me! :-D --Bertrc (talk) 17:34, 8 May 2019 (UTC)

@Bertrc I let this one pass. Just don't go inserting problematic and unfunny quote captions into articles again. --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 21:06, 8 May 2019 (UTC)
But you didnt let it pass!! :-P~ (Also, funny is in the eye of the many-eyed creature under copyright! :-P~ x 2 ) ;-) --Bertrc (talk) 16:19, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

Schafly's Essays[edit]

Oh my goodness, thank you so much for this page! I never encountered these. Would you be okay if I added in some bulleted highlights for a given essay? At the moment, my favrites are in his "Traditional Marriage" list with the phrasing of "the ability to have children from birth" and the idea that there is less domestic violence when one partner is physically stronger than the other. --Bertrc (talk) 17:01, 10 May 2019 (UTC)

@Bertrc Oh Goat yes! Please do add more! But just please don't mess up the historical stuff. --Goatspeed. Watch meCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 22:54, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
