And you didn't really need to start a talk page discussion about that edit that you undid. You should have just put that in your edit summary. Oh, well. No harm done. Spud (talk) 03:22, 5 September 2018 (UTC)

Thank You[edit]

Thanks for letting me know. I may need some time to adjust and learn my way around. This is my first time editing a wiki. It doesn't help that I won't be online often; I will only make intermittent contributions. I just want you guys to know I'm not a fake account. XD --G Man (talk) 16:25, 13 September 2018 (UTC)

I'm around, thanks for swinging by[edit]

I'm back from Thanksgiving break and saw your note. I'm no longer active in the SDA church (I'd consider myself atheist these days, and need to go clean up my page accordingly), but I'm happy to talk about it or related topics. Memesis (talk) 22:00, 26 November 2018 (UTC)

Half-Life[edit]

Did you get your name from the enigmatic, and infamous, G-Man character from Half-Life, or did you get it from Machine Gun Kelly's now famous last words: "Don't shout, G-Man!"--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 06:43, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Whatever resemblance to pop culture my name may bear is pure coincidence. It was a nickname used by some of my friends during my childhood. (Maybe that's where they got it from... 🤔) My name IRL is Grayson. G Man (talk) 06:58, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Interesting, I had several nicknames in childhood. Occam's Razor suggests that it is indeed likely they derived your nickname from pop culture, coincidentally (or maybe not?), "Grayson" is also the surname of Batman's first Robin, Dick Grayson, also known as "Nightwing". Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 07:06, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Yeah. Most pop culture references fly right over my head. I've been told by friemds and family that I need to get out more, and they're probably right. G Man (talk) 19:56, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

Nossa![edit]

Caraca véi, não achei que houvesse outros "brasileiros" aqui além de mim e do meu outro colega JPLSilva! Dude, sua ajuda é mais que bem-vinda. No momento, a tradução de Draft:RationalWiki (português) está em andamento, vê se edita por lá! DabUnicorn.png SmalkadeContribsSandboxEC 11:56, 14 September 2019 (UTC)

Vou ver o que eu faço. Moro nos Estados Unidos desde pequeno, então meu português ser melhor. Portanto, vocês estão bem-vindos a me ajudar e corrigir os meus erros. Kkkkk G Man (talk) 06:10, 15 September 2019 (UTC)
Obs: Eu só entro neste site alguns vezes por dia, e nem passo muito tempo aqui quando visito. Porém, eu ainda vou ajudar vocês com a tradução o máximo que puder. G Man (talk) 06:14, 15 September 2019 (UTC)

2021 U.S. Capitol riot/Charges is up for deletion[edit]

You may care to vote. Bongolian (talk) 17:54, 25 June 2021 (UTC)

Thank you. I just returned from a brief hiatus, so I missed the vote. I see that the consensus was built around killing the page. Come to think of it, I probably would have voted in favor of deleting it, myself. All it really did was add clutter without really furthering this site's mission.

On the tautology of socialism moonbattery[edit]

I'm not sure I understand what you mean. Do you think every socialist is unreasonable? I'm an anti-socialist to the bone. believe it cannot work. I don't think it's compatible with liberty and democracy. I believe it's immoral. But I acknowledge that there are very intelligent socialists on this very site, for instance, that can defend their socialist positions very well. Or, to quote Friedrich Hayek. the more

the more intelligent an educated person is, the more likely he or she now is not only to be a rationalist, but also to hold socialist views.

i don't really know how to translate the word "tautology" to portuguese (and i might not even be using it correctly in this sense), but i explained in the bar that my point is that "socialist moonbattery" is a redundant category. in other words, since pretty much every moonbat is a socialist by definition, then you don't really need the modifier "socialist" for the same reason you don't need the word "round" to describe circles (since all circles are round, by definition). in fact, the word "redundant" has the same latin origin as the portuguese word for round (redondo), but in english, it basically means something that repeats itself unnecessarily.
now, to answer your question, even though i, myself, am admittedly biased against socialists, that doesn't mean i think all socialists are moonbats (as a good number of them are rational, even though i may disagree with them on certain matters related to politics and/or economics). also, when i say that all moonbats are socialists, that doesn't automatically mean that the reverse (i.e. all socialists are moonbats) is also true. G Man (talk) 00:02, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

correction: i just remembered that moderate liberal (non-socialist) moonbats exist, too. however, it's still a pointless category imo, since we already have multiple "moonbattery" categories, as well as categories for socialism/socialists. G Man (talk) 04:04, 13 March 2022 (UTC)

Fair enough, I understand your point now. By the way, the Portuguese word for tautology is tautologia. Just like Astronomy/Astronomia, many words are often remarkably similar in both languages. You can learn many words in Portuguese just by learning some suffix rules (the word for suffix in Portuguese is sufixo). GeeJayK (talk) 02:08, 16 March 2022 (UTC)
I appreciate that. My parents are brazilian, but I was born in the USA. as such, my Portuguese isn't really the best, haha. G Man (talk) 05:22, 21 March 2022 (UTC)

deletion of Category:Socialist moonbattery[edit]

When you delete a category, don't forget to delete the links to that category: Category:Socialist moonbattery. Bongolian (talk) 07:33, 23 March 2022 (UTC)

noted. thanks. G Man (talk) 01:44, 29 March 2022 (UTC)

Edit[edit]

No, the first edit was accurate. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 04:05, 15 May 2022 (UTC)

thanks. i restored it. either way, i think it's best we collapse the thread for now. G Man (talk) 04:09, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
Fair enough. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:05, 15 May 2022 (UTC)
