Welcome to wherever you may be.--Helios 03:20, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Welcome! -Icewedge 03:15, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Thank you for getting started on the CP article. I'm going tobed now and I bet Icewedge will be off soon too (or he will be very sleepy tomorrow.) That'll leave you kind of alone here :( --Helios 03:23, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Thanks. By the time you get back, you won't recognize the place. BWAH-HAH-HAH!!!!!!...
...but, that would require actual effort, so, maybe not.  :D --Gulik 03:26, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Hey, great to see another believer here. It warms my heart that they still haven't found the twenty or so bogus articles I put on CP. Czolgolz 08:22, 23 May 2007 (CDT)

"Just trying to make sure, because if so, the above statement is so far from true that teh light from True won't reach it for six billion years." - Gulik. I really liked that metaphor. :) Clepper 22:07, 2 May 2009 (UTC)

TK's user page?[edit]

Do you have a link to the mention on TK's user page? I hadn't noticed it and am not seeing it now (but I can't make myself actually read the thing, just search for keywords). --Jtl 03:26, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Prefectly understandable. :D It's under I can't Decide, and it links to The Conservapedia Column, and from one of the comment pages there, I found Tmtoulouse's link to here. (Yes, it's kind of convoluted--ain't hypertext wonderful?) --Gulik 03:30, 22 May 2007 (CDT)
I also found this site from the same link. I'm surprised you lasted so long Gulik as version 3. Mad Min 12:22, 22 May 2007 (CDT)

Flaws in Evo[edit]

Wants you that I should move your masterwork to the essay space? It seems more fit there, given the tone. --ύικι ντερπρετηρ woo! Icewedge has done it already; sorry for being hasty. --ύικι ντερπρετηρ woo!

I moved it to User:Gulik/Essay evolution & User talk:Gulik/Essay evolution. I hope you don't mind every just wanted it moved out of the main space. -ĬŴΣĐĝё 13:48, 25 May 2007 (CDT)
I don't mind at all, but It's not mine. User:HeartOfGold wrote it on another page, and I wanted it where people could see (and comment) on it. --Gulik 16:29, 25 May 2007 (CDT)

HI FELLOW-READER!!![edit]

Are you sure you're not me? You know the Principia Discordia, you read Making Light, and you read Slacktivist's Left Behind Fridays. How do you feel about Firesign Theatre? --jtltalk 12:13, 18 June 2007 (CDT)

What I've heard of theirs, I like. Don't crush that dwarf, hand me the pliers! --Gulik 13:59, 18 June 2007 (CDT)
You're me, and I claim my five pounds. --jtltalk 14:49, 18 June 2007 (CDT)
Will you take a check? (And check it out-Slacktivist finally got around to Conservapedia, and mentions RationalWiki in the article! --Gulik 12:59, 22 June 2007 (CDT)

Helios for Bureaucrat![edit]

Vote now! ɧєɭıסş-get sunburn! 00:38, 5 July 2007 (CDT)

Hi[edit]

This is to say thanks! for welcoming me, and to say that I am not an ex-Conservapedian, but heard of this site elsewhere, and I am just looking for some enjoyment among people similar to me. Relatively. YB 19:09, 21 July 2007 (CDT)

Wandals[edit]

This userpage was vandalized by olliegrind and all I got was this lousy userbox.



I fixed your wandalism template so you can add in a name. I also had to quote you on your comment at Talk:Really Embarrassing Conservatives (see my user page).

Heh. Thanks! --Gulik 01:04, 29 August 2007 (CDT)

Suspected Terrorist[edit]

I have classified you as a possible terroist. We are investigating you and the CIA will be over at you house shortly. George W. Bush 19:18, 16 November 2007 (EST)

What, you finally caught Bin Laden, so now you've got spare time to go after the likes of me? Took you guys long enough. --Gulik 19:20, 16 November 2007 (EST)

TK's Threats[edit]

Got into a bit of an argument with Tk. (Big surprise, right?) I seem to recall some folks here posting various bizarre threats TK's made about using his Connections and Powerful Friends to ruin their lives, but I can't find them now that I'm looking. (Oh no! The FoTK Conspiracy must've silenced them all!) Anyone got links? --Gulik 15:21, 10 December 2007 (EST)

  • Aside from me mentioning to Ames I would have great satisfaction (if I ever met him in a business situation)pointing out to his co-workers his own, voluntarily and publicly made posts on many subjects, under his own real name, there are not any. Ames somehow saw that as a threat, not a promise. And he somehow thinks his public posts, under his own name, won't be checked out before he is hired anyplace. I am sad you think any disagreement should be handled by looking for "dirt", instead of just contacting the person you disagree with directly. But it is a good indication you are more like those you claim to hate than you would like, I bet. Like I said, you have me on your MSN, just message and ask whatever you want. The fact that you have never done so, speaks to your sincerity. --TK/MyTalk 15:42, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Gulik, he also told one of our senior contributors that if that user ever went to Chicago, TK would have his buddies beat that user up.-αmεσ (ninja) 15:44, 10 December 2007 (EST)


Message from TK[edit]

Gulik, somehow a message from TK to you made it to me. He is blocked now, but wanted you to know that:

"Gulik,

AmesG never saw the whole exchange of PM's on the forum, or if he has, he is once again a liar. The comment was made in jest, referring to my childhood friend, an artist, a lipstick Lesbian, who lives there. Is there really no end to what mean-spirited people will do to have their way? Does my attempt at light banter (which was returned in the same spirit, and nicely by her) to help undo my calling someone a few nasty names once, really need to be hauled out in some attempt to manufacture evidence? AmesG obviously has no shame.

See what they do?"

Obviously I am not taking any position. I would not have blocked him, but that's another matter. Editor at CP 16:25, 10 December 2007 (EST)

Bully bosses: The ultimate bully boss[edit]

As it happens I'm reading an amusing book about crazy bosses right now, and one thing it points out is that working for a bully is never safe--the only people in more danger than the bully boss' 'friends' are his 'enemies'. --Gulik 02:09, 13 December 2007 (EST)
Let me guess the book you're reading: Mao: The Unknown Story by Chang and Halliday. If not, and you're interested in bully bosses who are a danger to their friends and enemies, the book is interesting (though it is ruined with cheap shots in the guise of commentary and speculation about what various people believed and thought). HeartGoldJump up and down 09:53, 13 December 2007 (EST)
No, it's just called Crazy Bosses, by Stanley Bing. It's about office politics, not the sort with a body-count. --Gulik 00:32, 14 December 2007 (EST)

10C[edit]

Thanks for the details I couldn't remember and the utube boing boing link! humanUser talk:Human 02:29, 11 February 2008 (EST)

Found a better link, which has the actual video. --Gulik 02:36, 11 February 2008 (EST)
Cool, we EC while playing, but I think I preserved your work. I liked the text version, but most people would prefer video clip... can we link both? All I care about is that you found what I remembered watching and added a ref! humanUser talk:Human 02:39, 11 February 2008 (EST)
Looks ok to me--and I added back the boing boing link. --Gulik 02:42, 11 February 2008 (EST)
Awesome, thanks!!! humanUser talk:Human 02:44, 11 February 2008 (EST)

Don't worry[edit]

Don't worry about Veronica, or give her advice here. I know who she is.Barbara Shack 06:21, 8 April 2008 (EDT)

I have just sent you a very important email[edit]

But you won't get it as you haven't enabled your email. Black Widow 05:23, 18 April 2008 (EDT)

Weird--I verified it right after writing the last message. --Gulik 11:01, 18 April 2008 (EDT)

In which SHahB drops a turd on your userpage[edit]

I see you have been blocked. Ouch.

To my knowledge, you were already blocked last summer. My question is, were you ever actually unblocked? Or was Gulik5 a block evading sock?? SHahB 01:29, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

No, I just couldn't remember my old password. If it was a block evading sock (thank you Dr. Seuss), I'd've picked a name that wasn't completely obvious.
And please, spare me the faux-sympathy. On the off-chance you're actually serious, get Karajou to enable his email. --Gulik 02:00, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
Faux sympathy from a faux person. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:28, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
Just to let you know, you are my new hero. Some of your contributions at CP are priceless. (Editor at) CP:no intelligence allowed 11:05, 4 July 2008 (EDT)
Thanks. I won't ask which, in case some CP goon decides to read it and go on a deleting rampage there, but I haven't edited CP in months, so you might be thanking the wrong person. (Having said this, I'm sure Karajou will now spend HOURS trying to figure out which editors there now are actually me fnord.) --Gulik 15:39, 4 July 2008 (EDT)
Not saying more than I stumbled today in one of your months-old contributions and was amazed that it was still there. (Editor at) CP:no intelligence allowed 16:22, 4 July 2008 (EDT)

Sysopperisation[edit]

I'm staggered! I always thought you were one already. Having been here since Adam was a lad. SusanG  ContribsTalk 07:50, 6 August 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for the demotion! I promise to abuse these powers wisely. --Gulik 13:19, 6 August 2008 (EDT)

Deborah & Wikiindex[edit]

Deborah has been edit warring on Conservapedia and RationalWiki again. I have limited time because I have to use public computers at the moment. Proxima Centauri 11:38, 6 August 2008 (EDT)

I've got a second hand computer now. It should keep me online till my cool laptop is repaired and also if there's trouble with the laptop in future. Trouble with he second hand computer? So far I haven't got anti virus software run on it. The computer says there's insufficient memory. Proxima Centauri 04:40, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

Sorry to hear that--hope you get the main computer fixed soon. (And don't keep anything important on the backup computer!) It looks like William Ackerman keeps reverting Deborah's deletions, but I did add a few criticisms back in (to both articles)--partly to keep both 'sides' honest, but mostly because I said I would. --Gulik 05:37, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

It's time to update the Wikiindex article on Conservapedia. I've worked on it. here. I'm a sysop at Wikiindex now. But I can't use sysop buttons if Deborah or the others cause trouble. I promised I wouldn’t use sysop buttons in any conflict where I’m personally involved. If there’s trouble we’ll have to ask a neutral sysop to deal with it. By the way dynamic IP’s are cheaper. Mine is reliable. I just have to wait a minute or so after switching the modem on before I can access the Internet. Proxima Centauri 12:33, 13 November 2008 (EST)

Thanks for the alert--I see bunchanumbers took out all the good parts, so I've reset the article to my older vitrolic ranting. Please do update it if I messed anything up. --Gulik 18:07, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Conservapedia[edit]

I see you've been permabanned from Conservapedia. Sad. At least you've got a sockie there. Proxima Centauri 04:36, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, but they've also nuked my IP address, and I'm too lazy to use proxies. Honest. --Gulik 05:06, 26 August 2008 (EDT)
Sad Proxima Centauri 13:49, 26 August 2008 (EDT)

I have just sent you a very important email[edit]

Or rather, I tried to, but your email wasn't enable. Would you please enable it? I have something I would like to confer with you on in private. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:50, 8 October 2008 (EDT)

Would you like to know what it says? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:46, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Sorry, I'd misread the options. It should be enabled now. --Gulik 15:14, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
I received the Very Important Email. If Ken is reading this, he should know that Operation Goatwidener is now in effect! Beware the Ides of um...October? --Gulik 18:42, 9 October 2008 (EDT)
Goatse? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 17:48, 10 October 2008 (EDT)
No, I just like the name--calling someone a goatwidener is rather offensive without actaully being punchworthy, after all. --Gulik 02:31, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
By the way, in your response to me: are you the one called "Pope Disturban"? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:43, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Yep, that was me. --Gulik 03:02, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
You know, I sent you an email asking you just that, and you never answered... Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 03:10, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Sorry--I only use that account for RW, CP, and arguing with PJR, so I don't check it every day. --Gulik 03:38, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Fixed the links[edit]

I fixed the links to those Youtube pages. Bizzaro Andy 16:16, 27 November 2008 (EST)

They've just range blocked all my IP adresses at Conservapedia.[edit]

I've been advised about a Proxy. I've contacted Doggedpersistence. You might learn from it as well. I know you've got a simiar probem. Proxima Centauri 13:23, 7 December 2008 (EST)

What Doggedpersistence told me. I've adapted it for you. Proxima Centauri 14:16, 7 December 2008 (EST)

Here you go! Have fun. Use The Force responsibly. Wear a seatbelt. DogP 14:01, 7 December 2008 (EST)
Thanks for the tips! --Gulik 15:36, 7 December 2008 (EST)

OMG[edit]

Gulik, I'm so sorry. I had to delete and recreate my essay, but didn't realize that you have commented on it. Here's your comment, please post it again:

I blame the corporate media, for being lazy and cowardly. Investigative reporting into anything not involving celebrities' sex lives just isn't profitable enough to get them to stop uncritically echoing press releases, and since the Advent Of Blessed Saint Ronnie, they've been so paralyzed with the fear of being called "Liberal Biased" (Translation: "EVIL TRAITORS!@!!!@11one!") that they won't call the Republicans on even the most inane bullshit.

And that was before 9/11 gave us a nationwide concussion. 2004 was a BAD year for us Liberal Intellectual Elitists who looked around and wondered if everyone but us had genuinely gone insane. Then we dragged ourselves to 2006 (except for the ones who didn't make it, like Hunter S. Thompson), and a small spark of sanity appeared in American politics once more. Too bad we had to lose a city for people to start snapping out of it.

Just for a few bitter laughs, here's the REAL text of Bush's farewell speech. --Gulik 20:25, 23 January 2009 (EST)

Thanks and sorry :( --JJ4eI christen thee Sir Annoyz Alot 20:28, 23 January 2009 (EST)

Not a problem. Since you used the same title, it looks like my comments are still there. Good luck with the essay. --Gulik 20:32, 23 January 2009 (EST)
Perfect. Thanks! --JJ4eI christen thee Sir Annoyz Alot 20:38, 23 January 2009 (EST)

Ah ha ha, didn't know it was me! Fall down

You're blocked on ASK for this, I'm sorry for you. You really do need to consider a dynamic IP Adress. Proxima Centauri 14:53, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

Proxima, why the bloody hell do you think we can't get rid of him? He uses Tor and proxies, which make him unblockable. Time educated Phantom Hoover! 14:56, 8 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh, that was addressed to Gulik. Time educated Phantom Hoover! 14:57, 8 June 2009 (UTC)

A whole month this time. Good ol' LowKey--without him to keep us eeeevil heathens in line, PJR would have to lower himself to the job.  :-P --Gulik 02:27, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
I love how they block one of their (?) ten editors for a month. This site is gro.... stalling to shit. (They should have nine levels of blockage, just like Dante's Inferno. You're only at 5.) Sterile chiffon 02:09, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, it makes perfect sense from their POV--I _am_ an obnoxious bastard who does nothing but complain and start arguments and irrelevant articles. The fact that I think I have the facts on my side is utterly irrelevant. --Gulik 05:09, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah, I see after a month of repression, the floodgates open. Sterile chiffon 20:17, 22 July 2009 (UTC)
