Hello friend[edit]

Hey mate, it's been a long time since I've been on RW, but it turns out that college is harder than high school. Anyway, I just wanted to say hi and ask how you've been doing over the period of time and how has RW been for the past few months. Also, if you don't mind me asking, do you know how come RBP hasn't been on RW. I mean, it's unlike him to not edit for 3-4 months. I hope everything's fine with him. Anyway, see ya around, have a good one mate.-WMS (talk) 20:09, 16 January 2018 (UTC)

@WeakMindedSkeptic Welcome back, friend! College is indeed harder, and I'm planning to wean myself off RW. If I had to bet, RBP did the same. Best of luck with your studies! Cømяade FυzzчCαтPøтαтø (talk/stalk) 00:42, 17 January 2018 (UTC)
It's sad to know that at some point you're gonna go off RW, but it's nice to think about our interactions like when you taught me how to argue and such. Thank you sir and I wish you good fortune after you log out of RW for the last time.--WMS (talk) 19:33, 18 January 2018 (UTC)

Sockpuppeting policies[edit]

I'm unsure as to what our policies on sockpuppeting are. I have some suspicions about a certain user and am possibly going to open a coop case about it, but only if it's actually not allowed. The user in question does not appear to be a troll and has made good edits, if that also needs to be taken into consideration. Do you have any idea about it? I can't really find anything too specific in the guidelines. 𝔖𝔭𝔯𝔦𝔤𝔤𝔦𝔫𝔞 (𝔱𝔞𝔩𝔨) (𝔠𝔬𝔫𝔱𝔯𝔦𝔟𝔲𝔱𝔦𝔬𝔫𝔰) @ 23:14, 19 January 2018 (UTC)

@Spriggina TLDR: We don't block people for sockpuppeting, we block them for bad behavior. RW:B oʇɐʇoԀʇɐϽʎzznℲ (talk/stalk) 02:17, 20 January 2018 (UTC)
K, thanks. 𝔖𝔭𝔯𝔦𝔤𝔤𝔦𝔫𝔞 (𝔱𝔞𝔩𝔨) (𝔠𝔬𝔫𝔱𝔯𝔦𝔟𝔲𝔱𝔦𝔬𝔫𝔰) @ 02:45, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

Chronological contradictions[edit]

The following part you added didn't show up on the page and I'm not sure how you intended to format it:

  • |-style="background:#c0cad8;" | This is a straightforward contradiction. In Mark, Matthew, and Luke, Roman soldiers compel another man to carry Jesus' cross. In John, Jesus carries the cross himself.

Why are you leaving rationalwiki?[edit]

Hey FCP, I tried to message you on reddit but it said your account was suspended :( But yeah, question in title, if you don't mind me asking. Lord Aeonian (talk) 22:27, 27 January 2018 (UTC)

My Reddit accounts were permanently banned for spamming (which was 100% justified, although the actual behavior that got Reddit admins upset was totally harmless). Alas.
The TLDR is that [1] life is getting busy, [2] other interests are taking up more of my time, and [3] RationalWiki seems to be running well enough on its own. I'm sure that my departure pains you greatly. If it's any consolation, I'm working with an ExMNA group IRL. FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 21:36, 28 January 2018 (UTC)
Ah ok. I was just curious. Lord Aeonian (talk) 22:09, 28 January 2018 (UTC)

Discord (3)[edit]

One of the mods (SpacePrius) quit. You have to demote the replacement. Also gib me control of the server pls. 𝔊𝔬𝔞𝔱-𝔈𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔤𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔡𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔡𝔬𝔪/𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰) 00:49, 8 February 2018 (UTC)
Yeah, so apparently I was the only completely active mod, and now some people are scared that a troll will join and they won't be able to stop them. 𝔊𝔬𝔞𝔱-𝔈𝔪𝔭𝔢𝔯𝔬𝔯 𝔅𝔦𝔤𝔰 (𝔴𝔬𝔯𝔡𝔰 𝔬𝔣 𝔴𝔦𝔰𝔡𝔬𝔪/𝔞𝔠𝔥𝔦𝔢𝔳𝔢𝔪𝔢𝔫𝔱𝔰) 23:42, 8 February 2018 (UTC)

Acting mod for Discord?[edit]

If you need another moderator on our Discord server. I am willing to be an acting moderator, that is if you need any help at all.S.H. DeLong (talk) 01:17, 17 February 2018 (UTC)


Dear Mr. Cat, our glorious Archivist has not been active for about a week now. Could you please fire up the old engines? Thank you! By the way, do you have to activate the bot manually? Is it not possible to schedule an automatic run on, say, a weekly basis? Nerd (talk) 03:34, 17 February 2018 (UTC)

it's automatic, the machine it's running on is the problem Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 18:16, 17 February 2018 (UTC)
Is there something you could do? Nerd (talk) 17:07, 2 March 2018 (UTC)

Christ Almighty.[edit]

I don't recognize any of these people. Is there, like, a field guide or something? RagingHippie (talk) 08:58, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

Hello.I don't see why people shouldn't introduce themselves to returning emeritus administrators. I am an older common species of North-Atlantic-whitefish male who ten years ago would have been left-wing progressive. I have always thought the Left is morally superior to the Right because I am a humanist: human values are priceless. Still, I don't automatically favor leftists when they act like kids. I shudder at some of the prose that passes for snark in some of the articles here: both obtuse and juvenile while inaccurate. There is the crank-right and there is the serious right. Many here can't tell one from the other. Fuzzy has been good about that.Ariel31459 (talk) 14:35, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
It's been said that Trump did a hostile reverse merger of the shell of what was left of the GOP,[1] so there aren't a lot left in the US of the serious right who actually reject crank and autocracy. Bushes, Anna Navarro, Richard Painter, Joe Scarborough, and Jennifer Rubin are some examples of the serious right.
Someone was doing a synopsis of events on RW, I can't remember where it was because I only went there once or twice. Bongolian (talk) 17:35, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
@Bongolian This ping function doesn't work so well. About the disappearance of the rational right (non-crank right): I think that it is a problem. There are many on the left who maintain a cooties theory of the far (irrational) right, which is almost always irrational. They think they can solve the world's problems by shunning those with whom they disagree. This has the disagreeable consequence of pissing-off undecideds and birthing new conservatives. Take Jordan Peterson. He certainly has engaged in some crank-like behaviors. Yet, he has professed some very un-crank-like ideals, such as 1) liberals and conservatives are both necessary for a healthy society, 2) all people deserve the same opportunities under the law 3) denies ideological affiliation with alt-right, MRAs, and other extreme conservative or reactionary groups, while being interested in talking to them. It's a good thing that they like him, pronouns aside for now, because he advocates non-violence and tolerant interactivity between disparate groups. He does focus on Christianity, which is problematic. My point is he should not be subjected to the same level of scorn as say Alex Jones, or Steven Molyneax, if only because, as it seems to me, they are so much worse, given their ostensible insanities.Ariel31459 (talk) 18:54, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

@RagingHippie anyone who joined before 2017 is a pretentious buffoon, everyone after is a fake poseur Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 07:25, 20 February 2018 (UTC)

An apology[edit]

When I blocked the two fellows trying to edit the Peterson article, by protecting the page, it was because I thought them entirely incompetent on the questions I was trying to deal with, that of pseudoscience. And of course their actions and comments verify that conclusion. I hoped you would intervene. It was clear they had no clue as to the difficulty in distinguishing "pseudo-scientific" from "unscientific". Given that this wiki has something to do with that, it seemed important at the time. Clearly now, you don't think that matters. I had hoped that by protecting the page you would be moved to let me know what you wanted, specifically. It is only one article, and I as much as said how it was up to you. Unfortunately it seems that ignorance about what pseudoscience is understood to be in epistemology has successfully evaded the mobocracy. I consider that less than fortunate, but I look forward to having a great time. Thanks again.Ariel31459ya pays ya money and ya takes ya chances

I didn't even have anything to say about what is psuedoscientific and what is un-scientific, there is absolutely no reason to smear the whole profession of psychologists to be as incompetent as Peterson is. It's both insulting and it's bad writing. James Earl Cash (talk) 19:29, 22 February 2018 (UTC)

@Fuzzy: there's your new janitor. I wonder what his native language might be? Ariel31459如果你能阅读这个,你就通过了。
