LX[edit]

So you're either him or his sockpuppet. Censoring your talk page is supposedly against the rules, but Andy "LX" Schafly is apparently in charge here. It's a shame, really. This is supposed to be "rational" wiki, not HARDCORE ODINIST WIKI.

I'm "either him or his sockpuppet"? Idiot. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 13:06, 2 February 2012 (UTC)

Andrew Marr[edit]

He is a great historian - I've read History of Modern Britain several times now, but haven't read Making of yet. I actually bought that one for my father a few months ago and have been meaning to nick it borrow it for a while now. You're right of course that Hitler wasn't the reason the British Empire was dismantled, I meant to point out that racism had been used to justify the Empire since its inception and after fighting Hitler for nearly six years (even though the British government's motives to go to war weren't originally because of Nazi racialism) it was much harder to justify it to the public. I am aware this is not what I originally said at twigocp, but it is what I meant. "Lol". SJ Debaser 15:28, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

The book is an interesting and easy read, I picked up the hardback at WHS for £5. The racism aspect is a difficult because I don't think it was a conscious - of course there has always been the nationalist 'we are better than the rest' but I go along with the James/Jan Morris (Pax Britannica trilogy) view that a lot of the Empire was actually based on the (arrogant) idea of enlightenment, especially through Christianity. Although slavery played a part in the early years it was more an economic than a racial institution as many black slave traders were treated as equals with the whites, sent their sons to be educated in Britain and lived with their merchant partners. The whole slavery thing is much more complex than the recent racism. I just re-listened to a Dan Carlin podcast on the evils of slavery this morning, it may not still be available for free but I could email the mp3 if you like. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 15:48, 16 November 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, "spread Christianity to the uncivilised" etc. I'd say British nationalism's still strongly associated with 'we're better than the rest' school of though but then that's a strong trait of right-wing nationalism in general. I could describe myself as English nationalist but it wouldn't be that accurate as that's purely an easy way of describing my views on devolution, which are only there because of devolution in the rest of the UK. Podcast would be much appreciated, cheers. SJ Debaser 16:01, 16 November 2011 (UTC)

Please help me[edit]

You are one of the few men of honour in the mods. I plan a campaign of agitation that will see the oligarchy crushed and the mobocracy restored. My martyrdom has inspired thousands of liberty loving rationalwikian to vote for mobocratic candidates like yourself and Human. We are very near the barn door - the time has come to kick it down. I know you've been reluctant to help me in the past, but I need you. The reactionaries are plotting and they will strike, and soon. We need to eliminate them before they eliminate us. Please help me. For the love of god, please help me. 66.90.73.223 (talk) 11:48, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Ace, please don't be so shortsighted. Everything I predicted since day one has proven to be terrifingly prescient. I also prophesised the return of Human, the redemption of Rationalwiki, and the restoration of the mobocracy. Help me in this struggle. For once, choose the virtuous course and abandon this mad scheme of yours. 86.45.233.97 (talk) 22:12, 14 January 2012 (UTC)

Do you make an extra special effort to be so annoying and obtuse? I apologise that neither me nor Human can devote sufficient time to the internet that quite matches your insatiable ability to have absolutely no life whatsoever... But what can I say? You devote dozens of hours to rationalwiki every week. This is always the way with internet tyrants; they try to hold up their attendance and edit rate as if it means something. In the end, all it means is that you have no life and that you're probably a poisonous influence on the site. Cunt. 86.45.237.193 (talk) 00:20, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

I am a lowly moderator and have no powers to call my own, ultimately the mob decides. If you want to be accepted back then you have to convince everyone else of your case. Now how might you accomplish that? Not, I think, by abusing people or being disruptive. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 09:13, 15 January 2012 (UTC)

'Being disruptive'? By that I suppose you mean speaking truth to power, challenging orthodoxy, daring to speak candidly? You sound like the Stasi. You have the authority to call for a retrial, and conceivably to bring down the entire rotten structure. Abandon this mad scheme, now.

Not cool, coming from a mod[edit]

Sorry dude, but I am going to call bullshit on that. At the risk of rehashing old scores you were pretty silent when Nx, as a mod, made suggestion he was trying to get rid of me and his repeated blocking over a 48 period. Plus his borderline removal of my rights. Not to mention mods are not "special" kinds of users and I used no mod rights of any kind. While I have pushed for some sort of mod censure/removal tool for rogue mods comments like "fuck off" are not particularly surprising when coming from me and if Brx wants to complain he has that avenue. I found your post rather surprising under the above circumstances and just wanted to make these points. Enjoy your day or whatever time it is in backwards, tucked away up there.

Glad you enjoyed it. In the UK Radio 4 (speech radio) is looked on as mostly middle class and middle/old aged, but it's where you find the most intelligent broadcasting. Melvyn Bragg is in his 60s but has been a presenter of arts programmes for many years.

This isn't for you to create a seperate "bot" account. Rather, the "Ninja" right let's you make your main account into a "bot" account when you go on a minor edit rampage. Yes, you can also create a bot script to run if you like, but it's more about keeping recent changes free of massive amounts of "minor" edits than about your account actually having bot-like powers.

You're the atypical moderate that autocratic regimes have lying around in order to provide a veneer of respectability. From the autocrat's point of view you are a 'useful idiot'.
