Just in case you missed it i posted a reply to your WA cults comment... if you wanna game just let me know, do you use msn perhappenchance? 12:50, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

IM rather passed me by I'm afraid, I'm still stuck in the IRC age. Do feel free to email me though, though < yonder link. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:07, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Where did that come from?!?[edit]

The SES app, that is. --SpinyNorman (talk) 22:30, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Yer man neveruse filed a OPRA request and forked over the small fee for having it copied and redacted. That is all. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:00, 30 July 2009 (UTC)


Go to bed, dear Jeeves! It's after midnight here in the land of Brittania! (As I'm sure you're aware...) SJ Debaser 23:06, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

I know, but I work all hours. It's my punishment for frittering away the day annoying PJR. Caffeine is my lover, my mother, my muse and deliverer. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:38, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
"Jeremy's right - she's an actual woman!" Yeah, my shitty pedestrian job saw me leaving at one o'clock yesterday morning. SJ Debaser 23:44, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, I at least have the advantage of being able to do my work sitting at home on my sofa, in my underwear. I kind of miss all nighters in a real office though. The enthralling conversations with the security guard, the ready access to a vending machine chock full of snacks and beverages. Those were the days. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:48, 30 July 2009 (UTC)


just beautiful. Ace McWickedModel 500 01:09, 5 August 2009 (UTC)

Great, now you made go tell Philip that he is offensive. And, yeah, Jeeves, brilliant post. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:17, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Thank you, ladies and gentlemen. I'll be here until banhammered, which should be any moment now. Try the lightly flamed idiot. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:36, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
PJR is an idiot. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:28, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
Try instead "train-pusher who thinks himself possessed of more scientific qualifications than all scientists and more theological qualifications than most sane theologians." Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 03:41, 5 August 2009 (UTC)
That's not even an anagram of idiot. But, yeah. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:52, 5 August 2009 (UTC)


Thank you!!!! That is all.I am eating Toast& honeychat 13:12, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Seconded. Also, that piece deserves a place over here. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD member 18:58, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Absolutely brilliant. I'd agree that it deserves a place here too.--BobNot Jim 19:12, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
As flattering as all this is, I'd rather the energy was spent on hitting PJR hard in his intellectual gonads, such as they are. I'm wondering if together we might be able to put together a few pages chronicling the history of evolution through humble beginnings, and up through key discoveries and cross-confirming experiments. Something to show PJR what real science looks like, and that creation science is a cheap imitation. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:36, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
Fourthed on both points. And PJR's "response" was good for a laugh, but not much more. As far as the "history of evolution" thing, basically, the "history of deep time" is that once upon a time, most western scientists, maybe most people, thought the Earth was, oh, maybe 10k years old. Then more and more evidence turned up that simply couldn't be explained that way and other ideas started taking hold, ones which tended to better and better match and explain the data as it came in. Some people just somehow got stuck in the 17th century or so. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:48, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm afraid that I'm not really into writing a history of evolution on ASK for a couple of reasons. 1. Philip is capable of such a level of doublethink that, no matter how good it was, it wouldn't convince him. 2. At the end of the day he has the final say on the editorial content. Given the editorial policy at ASK it would be edited into something supportive of the YEC world-view. (Assuming it was an article.)--BobNot Jim 20:01, 12 August 2009 (UTC)
It needn't be exclusively for aSoK, I think it'd be a nice thing to have to RW too. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:19, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

Dear Sir,[edit]

I'm sorry this comment is late, it was supposed to arrive earlier in the programme day.

Nuclear visit[edit]

When I was in the sixth form (1961/2 ish) we were treated to a visit to Calder Hall (the world's first nuclear power station to deliver electricity in commercial quantities). All I can remember is that part of the tour included walking across a mesh floor some thirty feet above the reactor floor which triggered my acrophobia. Don't recall any subsequent metering though. The main attraction was that we were with boys from the next door school from whom we were normally totally segregated. I am eating Toast& honeychat 13:34, 25 September 2009 (UTC)

I went to the Trawsfynydd reactor in Wales, but I was a good bit younger than in sixth form, so I don't remember a huge amount from my visit. We got to see the turbine hall, and I remember the reactor floor was in very pretty colours. In fact, I found a picture of it. It's like a giant twister board. I didn't realise that people could actually go in there, but I guess since all that separated us tourists from it was plate glass, I should have guessed. The reactor had a pretty clever storage battery arrangement too, during the night they pumped their coolant water up to the top reservoir and during the day there was a hydro plant in operation to supply more electricity for peak demand. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:38, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
Heh! I worked for a company (Compair) that had quite a lot to do with that pumping system. We supplied the equipment to dig the tunnels to the top reservoir. For years we had a supply warehouse there. I was stock controller at their central England depot. (small world, innit?). I am eating Toast& honeychat 13:52, 25 September 2009 (UTC)
Totally off topic, but I edited this thread because I found it fascinating. Jeeves, in my reactions to MC and the Star Chamber Trial of the Century, I hope you don't take my deliberations in the contrary position personally. I think you are a great person and an asset to RW in general, but I fundamentally disagree with the lawyerly proposals at RationalWiki:Blocking policy/draft blocking policy addendum. Although, I suspect you meant it as a giant joke to see how silly some of us might get, given appropriate provocation. ħumanUser talk:Human 08:07, 4 October 2009 (UTC)


I noted you mentioning this in the bar. I've been trying to get the trial version working on my Nokia 5800, and it seems to install OK and I configured it OK (aside from it only supporting WEP, which I am pretty much against as one of my hobbies is cracking WEP networks using AirCrack-ng), but when I try to connect to it using vista it churns away for a bit and then says it was unsuccessful when connecting. It knows it's an ad-hoc connection (as it shows the symbol in the network list) so I don't think that's the problem. Any ideas? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 20:03, 31 October 2009 (UTC)

Pass. I blame Windows Vista. Have you tried it sans encryption? Possibly wankdows is putting the key though the password based key derivation function rather than using what you actually typed as key. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:16, 4 November 2009 (UTC)

totally looking forward to England handing the USA their arse in the world cup[edit]

  1. The team are self-destructing nice and early this time instead of during the tournament.
  2. 1950.
  3. 1993.

Don't worry though, my world cup predictions always turn out completely wrong. Totnesmartin (talk) 22:22, 25 March 2010 (UTC)

Feh. Surely you'd believe these revisionist lies of the liberal wikipedia. All mankind know that England have won the world cup every year since 1966. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 05:14, 26 March 2010 (UTC)

Mature up and keep your hateful comment to yourself[edit]

Thanks. im not defending Marcus im just saying that he said nothing today that deserved your blind insult. Waronstupidity (talk) 17:11, 25 July 2010 (UTC)

Erm.. what? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:14, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
from reading your comment on the saloon bar i see that you the only one throwing insult.Waronstupidity (talk) 17:16, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Yeah. You have no idea what you're talking about, do you? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:20, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
oh and you do? the only post i read from you are insult toward either Theist or IP user that you think is Marcus.Waronstupidity (talk) 17:21, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
I suggest you go and read this and then shut up. For the record, I don't think MC is a theist. I don't believe anything that issues from him. He's just a guy with the same personality as TK. A troll for trolling's sake. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:24, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
What make you think he is Marcus?Waronstupidity (talk) 17:25, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
also insulting him for his mental illness is Wrong.Waronstupidity (talk) 17:26, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Oh Jesus wept. Are you trying to be a professional idiot. Read the fucking link. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:28, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
i did, i just said that insulting him for his illness is a cheap shot.Waronstupidity (talk) 17:30, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
Oh for fucks sake. Let me say it in words of two or less syllables so you'll understand. He. Does. Not. Have. A. Mental. Disease. He. Is. A. Troll. Are you done making a fool of yourself? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:34, 25 July 2010 (UTC)
I do sometimes forget how big of a wanker you are. Oh yeah, I read this and laughed recently; user:Jeeves (talk) 11:37, 26 July 2010 (UTC)
I think it's cute you've got a hobby and all. I mean, calling people cunts and wankers on the internet, there's nothing more fun than that. But it was a nice day today. You should enjoy the sunshine. Doing it in the middle of the afternoon, that way is the path that turns you in to Ken. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:40, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Oh, my heart just wants to explode of happiness if I see people being nice and gentle to each other! Keep that up, guys! --Idiot number 59 (talk) 20:44, 26 July 2010 (UTC)

Far too accurate, but damned funny. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 01:09, 23 January 2011 (UTC)


It wasn't intended to cause offense. I hope my subsequent update puts things in their proper perspective.


You asked the other day where summer was: it's apparently about to hit Pippa (talk) 00:20, 25 June 2011 (UTC)

Let's take a look[edit]

Someone who understands the issues should look at these edits. I'm not Jesus (talk) 18:55, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

He/she's been around before: a homeopathy/Heel supporter. BbMaj7 has reverted anyhow. Pippa (talk) 19:01, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, looks straightforward to me. Not sure if they are serious germ theory denialists, but even if not there's only so far you can go with snark. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:03, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Hey :([edit]

Hey, no fair to block me. We all make mistakes from time to time, you fascist. Fuckertalk to me :D 04:40, 21 November 2011 (UTC)

You might want to read our newcomers' guide. Especially this bit. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 05:47, 21 November 2011 (UTC)
I demand you make me a sysop so I can ban you for 32 seconds, and put in the summary section "fascist".

Potential damage[edit]

So by hitting the site what potential damage/issues could hit my pc? I am doing another full scan but my laptop flipped out a bit. AceModerator 01:21, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

No idea. I'd guess whatever they were distributing was either a trojan to add your PC to a botnet for purposes of spamming/DDoSing people or it was blackmail ware. Keep an eye out for unusual volumes of network activity. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:23, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Hmmmm, well my network utilization is at about 0.05% currently. Not much happening, plus my McAfee dropped the connection as soon as it hit the site so I'll keep an eye on it. Cheers. AceModerator 01:27, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
You'll want to keep an eye on it at the router. If your PC gets rooted, any data it gives you is suspect. I've no real idea how thorough these rootkits are at hiding their tracks, but I'd guess it at least covers using the network at the lowest level and not reporting to the UI. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:29, 8 January 2012 (UTC)
Linux for the win. Flubbertalk to me :D|see my shit 04:11, 8 January 2012 (UTC)

After the tragedy that was Fallout 3[edit]

Fuck you, it was a good game. AceModerator 05:43, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

It wasn't. It was a mediocre game. Entirely too much combat for such a terrible job at AI. Bolt on pseudo-turn based crap to do their best to appease Fallout fans that ends up just being a sort of god mode, so much so that you're almost never going to fire a shot in real time. Stats are pretty much utterly meaningless. Tedious story, terrible voice acting, shallow characterisations. Not enough RPG elements to make it meaty, and nowhere near good enough combat system to make it a good shooter. Just ends up being a "meh" sort of throwaway game. New Vegas did a bit better with the engine they inherited, but needs serious work on the pacing. And don't get me started on the fucking Cazadores. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 06:00, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

I agree with you in principle...[edit]

...when it comes to delete-on-sight for obvious trolling. I also fear that doing so will engender HCM. P-Foster Talk ""Santorum is the cream rising to the top."" 15:36, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

Stop it. It's a very lame parodist.Тyrannosaurs 15:46, 26 March 2012 (UTC)
I don't think anyone is going to care. The dude has obviously no intention of having a reasonable conversation, just spouting some lowest energy level tea party crap. I doubt he even believes it. If anyone is going to go HCM in defence of such an obvious troll, then they're just fighting for the sake of it. It's just unfunny vandalism in my book. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 16:03, 26 March 2012 (UTC)

"I used to say the cake is a lie, but then I took an arrow in the knee"[edit]

HAHAHAHA! Additionally I just discovered Jeeves and Wooster last week, through TOW page on Archer. I watched the Fry and Laurie show and loved every moment of it deeply, I wish that you had made the recommendation more explicitly, for I would have loved to have found it sooner. --Opcn with regards to regarding my regardliness 08:58, 13 April 2012 (UTC)

I was never so keen on Fry and Laurie as sketch comedy, but they make just the perfect Jeeves and Wooster. If you're a fan of farce like I am, try 'Allo 'Allo as well. That's also awesome. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:24, 13 April 2012 (UTC)
My favorite thing about J&W is how clever Jeeves is, and how wonderfully wodehouse crafted his words. I also really loved Sir Humphrey in Yes Minister. After watching 'Allo 'Allo I'm afraid it hasn't got that quality that I'm looking for. Also, Just FYI I stole the above quoted line on facebook, no attribution, sorry :) --Opcn with regards to regarding my regardliness 02:50, 14 April 2012 (UTC)

You are a profit prophet[edit]

And if certain people with creationist leanings (or bona-fide creationists) feel like they're being gypped, they should be invited to establish their own reality-denying fork of Wikipedia. Jeeves 20:48, 27 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Was pointlessly strolling through archives. Please tell me more of your great wisdom, oh master. - π 04:29, 18 July 2012 (UTC)

LMAO! I totally remember when this discussion went down. No, not really. But, I wish I did. I was editing WP during this period, but it was long before I waded into the origins debate. "Reality-denying fork", indeed. --Inquisitor (talk) 09:20, 14 May 2013 (UTC)


Are you opposed to free speech ?


Thus saith Markman Here is what Markman said: Why do you care about being people being dicks to each other on CP? As I already told Patmac: "The general view here is that CP is a joke website, that other than a select few of true believers all the editors are trolls and parodists seeking nothing more than their own amusement. If that is the case, why is getting the banhammer on the infamous wiki is seen by some as the equivalent of murder? Shouldn't editing at CP be seen as a game, with blocks being the equivalent of getting shot on CounterStrike?" - ConservapediaMarkman (talk) 02:57, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Mainly I care because people have the view that all trolls on CP are from here. I don't think that's true, in fact I think almost none of them are, and the ones that are are lurkers who don't really bother to participate in RW as such. Being a complete cock to everyone seems to curry favour with Andy, who values nothing quite so much as a good blocking, but really there's not much of a difference between acting and being in this case. I think it's crass whether you're genuine or a parodist. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 03:07, 19 July 2013 (UTC)

Fame![edit] - David Gerard (talk) 10:50, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

And in answer to your question on the bug report, yes. Once it's uploaded, there aren't any further checks. It should be the case that you can't actually upload the exploit any more though. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:45, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
