New logo large.png Meh. You signing up for a RationalWiki account doesn't really move us one way or the other, Fawcett.

This is probably because we're getting bored of lame attempts at trolling our site and/or obvious sockpuppetry. Maybe you should try mixing things up a little or try taking a walk outside.

We realize that it is possible that you think your activity here is really important, so we'll do our best to tolerate it. But don't expect us to get too excited.

Our Newcomers' Guide may help clarify things for you.

"Incivility: ad hominem attacks" The fuck is this shit?[edit]

@Ace McWicked @LeftyGreenMario @RWRW @Scream!! @Spud. Fawcett (talk) 19:32, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

What’s the matter? AceModerator 19:35, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
I just got blocked for saying saying that I don't think Oxy should get her rights back due to admittedly having mental issues that impair her judgement. That is not an ad hom, that is just saying that someone who has repeatedly used excuses like "I was having an episode that day" should not be a sysop. People are free to disagree, but don't fucking block me over it. Fawcett (talk) 19:37, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Also @Ace McWicked, I think it's highly inappropriate that Oxy struck a vote against her over at ATM. Fawcett (talk) 19:41, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Why did you sign up just to make a comment about Oxy on a heated conflict? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:42, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Because I was tired of being a BoN? Fawcett (talk) 19:44, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Claiming someone has a(n unspecified) mental illness without actual evidence is libel, so fuck yourself.Coigreach (talk) 19:46, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Also I believe your vote illegitimate because you don’t have the required edits. AceModerator 19:48, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
(e/c)Oxy has said she has mental illness, she denies paranoid schizophrenia which would have been my first guess, so who knows what she has. Having mental illness is not a bad thing per se, but when one has admitted that it has caused her to do bad things, it's a problem. Fawcett (talk) 19:48, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
I thought that the edit requirements were for registering to vote in the moderator and board elections, not for things like this. Perhaps I'm mistaken? I mean, as a lurker, I'm not exactly 100% on all of the policies. Fawcett (talk) 19:50, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Can you provide a link to that statement? I somehow have missed that.
Also, Oxy takes really badly for misgendering, so please fix that first pronoun before we get even more drama.Coigreach (talk) 19:52, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Sure. But in the future, you can feel free to fix it if you see I make such a mistake again. Fawcett (talk) 19:53, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
With your permission, sure. Generally editing other peoples comments is frowned upon here from what I gather, but I'll be your editor if you so wish.Coigreach (talk) 19:55, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
You’re right - I think Fawcett is able to vote. Can someone reinstate the vote as I have to go to work now. AceModerator 19:57, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

This is one example of her having an "episode". I know she's said other things about having mental issues, use the search function. Fawcett (talk) 20:04, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

I'm just going to throw this out here so it isn't taken the wrong way, I don't look down on her for having issues. I just don't think she should have the toolset, or an AR-15. Fawcett (talk) 20:05, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

??? you don't have to bring up mental health to say she doesn't need tools? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:07, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Also, can I point out that the AR-15 comment may just be a bit problematic?-Flandres (talk) 20:08, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Why is it problematic? We background check gun buyers for good reason, that's the comparison I'm trying to make there. Fawcett (talk) 20:10, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Associating oxy with an act of mass murder/domestic terror? Especially when mentally ill people are used as scapegoat in a manner the facts do not bear out?-Flandres (talk) 20:13, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Um, I did no such thing. You do realize that people with disabilities can make mistakes with firearms that don't involve mass murder, right? Fawcett (talk) 20:15, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Then why did you not specify that? AR-15s are very much associated with mass shooters.-Flandres (talk) 20:17, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Oh, you're one of those... Fawcett (talk) 20:18, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
Please be specific. Are you just not aware of the common association with AR-15s and mass shootings?-Flandres (talk) 20:20, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
(e/c)For the record, I have mental illness and know several others who do as well. My only issue here is that Oxy keeps using it as an excuse for toxic behavior. As others have said, this would not fly in the real world. I can only imagine if I cussed out a customer at work and blamed it on my disability. Fawcett (talk) 20:17, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
We're not backround checking RW users though. We're pointedly not doing that. Checkuser is disabled for a reason and I saw nothing about Oxy stating anything about having mental illnesses in that link anyway. You're being a cunt Fawcett and need to take a breather.Coigreach (talk) 20:18, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
I'm not impressed with your armchair psychiatry. This isn't the first time you've engaged in it. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 20:20, 7 July 2020 (UTC)

(e/c):::::Okay, whatever dude, everybody else was saying negative things about her, it's clear that I'm only getting crap because I have previously chosen not to register, because I did not want to be involved in the drama. I think I'm going to go back to mainspace editing as an IP. Fawcett (talk) 20:20, 7 July 2020 (UTC)
