Not-so Clean Talk Page Anymore[edit]

Hi Linus! GHammer and Sickle text gold.svgdlessLiberal 22:36, 3 August 2007 (CDT)

Ach, you terrible person! --Linus(plot evil tech) 22:39, 3 August 2007 (CDT)
I do what I can. GHammer and Sickle text gold.svgdlessLiberal 22:43, 3 August 2007 (CDT)


Hey, Linus can you create one of them fabled Rationalwiki E-Mails for me? The name can be just "Icewedge" - Icewedge 14:07, 8 August 2007 (CDT)

I sent you an e-mail to an address I had with the info. --Linus(plot evil tech) 22:26, 10 August 2007 (CDT)
It is not working for me, it keeps telling me the login failed. - Icewedge 12:46, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Maybe I gave you the wrong password… I'll fix it. --Linus(plot evil tech) 21:46, 13 August 2007 (CDT)
Erm, same thing here....Locke Eye.jpg Always Watching...... 23:14, 20 August 2007 (CDT)
Odd. Erm… I'll see what I can do. Please forgive the delay, I've been a mite more occupied recently. --Linus(plot evil tech) 19:51, 22 August 2007 (CDT)


In what way? Bohdan 00:13, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

I still don't understand the question! Is this about the misquote? Where someone said that Conservative was speaking for Andy? Bohdan 20:01, 10 August 2007 (CDT)
It may very well have been. I forget where it was precisely. --Linus(plot evil tech) 22:25, 10 August 2007 (CDT)

Friendly message from Project whitewash[edit]

You are receiving this message because you signed up to participate at project whitewash. If you no longer want to hear from me about this than just remove your name or let me know. I want to create a push to get as thorough coverage as possible for two new categories the first is Category:Best of RationalWiki and the second is Category:Almost the best of RationalWiki. Both categories should tell you what belongs in each. If you could take some time to go through the article space and the essay space and label these with the corresponding categories it would be very helpful. Godspeed. tmtoulouse nettle 13:39, 10 August 2007 (CDT)


Just thought I'd drop by update that I was getting crazy emails from crazy people and say hi :-) Richard 22:35, 26 September 2007 (EDT)


I heard you were pretty good with wiki coding, and I wanted to learn some. Could you get in contact with me? on both AIM and MSN. Feebas factor 21:40, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

  • Linus M? Its been so long.

Helios wuz here[edit]

As long as I'm here, I thought I'd drop by to say hi. ɧєɭıסş-get sunburn! 01:03, 10 December 2007 (EST)

It goes. Pretty well too. ɧєɭıסş-get sunburn! 01:34, 11 December 2007 (EST)


I'd love to join back in the fun, but I've either forgotten my login or maybe my account wasn't moved over after the server shift? Can you help? DogP 13:13, 21 December 2007 (EST)

Linus, I'm trying to log in to the Forums but my previous registration seems to be getting in the way. When I use my current username and email address, I'm told both are in use. Can I reset my account there? I think it must have been snarked by the move? DogP 09:58, 28 December 2007 (EST)

Merry Christmas and a happy (belated) Hanukkah to you, Linus![edit]

Thanks! :D --Linus(plot evil tech) 16:46, 22 December 2007 (EST)


Yes please! -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!

Well, I've created a profile for myself, I try to create a blog, it just tells me that I'm already signed up. \o/? -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!
I'll go with, if that's alright. Thanks! -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!
Is this something only Admins are allowed? Forgive if I missed wherever the discussion was. --TK/MyTalk 21:14, 22 December 2007 (EST)

Damn, that's quick to blame us. It's here - [1]. -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!

Thanks Linus. A winrar is you. -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!
What is quick is Wiki's irrational need to hate. As I explained on my page to Linus, it was just as it appeared to be, me asking for information. Isn't it a shame some people have such a need to punish and be mean to others? --TK/MyTalk 21:25, 22 December 2007 (EST)
facepalm.jpg. I walked straight into that one, didn't I? -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!
Doesn't have to be that way, just be more careful in your blatant attempts to make others look bad. And if that isn't your intention, ask/read before assuming. --TK/MyTalk 21:28, 22 December 2007 (EST)
People, calm down. Seriously, it's juvenile and overly high-strung. Gosh. And I intend no offense, just trying to inject some sanity. Go burn the heretic or something while you cool down :).--Linus(plot evil tech) 21:33, 22 December 2007 (EST)


Am i allowed to use the RW logo on RationalWikiWiki? I modified it so its not an exact copy. -- 16:38, 27 December 2007 (EST)

A question[edit]

I know that one can prevent pages from being re-created over and over again - would we do such a thing and how? PFoster 00:06, 29 December 2007 (EST)

As said elsewhere. Create the page, redirect to some sort of boilerplate "bullshit" page. What is being created over and over? humanUser talk:Human


What was the name of that board that was set up on the forums because TK demanded a place to orchestrate trolling? -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!

Unfortunately, your hate, Jack, never stops. I never "demanded" anything, and it is less than honest for you to have publicly asked the question, allowing, once again, for your misinformation trolling to be introduced here. What's the matter? You just hate for any of us to get along? --TK/MyTalk 22:07, 29 December 2007 (EST)
Ah, I love the periodic flamewars. They just brighten my day. --Linus(plot evil tech) 22:20, 29 December 2007 (EST)
Flames usually erupt when someone is dishonest. Since you alone created the hidden forum, you alone would also know it was never demanded, right? If someone tells the truth from the beginning, and makes sure others know it, such flames cannot erupt, unless Wikintrepreter knows the truth, and was just trying to slander me. --TK/MyTalk 22:28, 29 December 2007 (EST)
Sorry, I thought he was referring to the EZboard. I'll rectify my error posthaste. And TK, you engage in a behavior which strongly resembled a demand… but I refuse to get involved. --Linus(plot evil tech) 22:49, 29 December 2007 (EST)

I did? I still have the email from you, Linus, offering to create a separate, hidden forum there, along with several IM's about it. Did you possibly forget? Are you sure you are remembering this correctly? You are shocking me here, Linus. --TK/MyTalk 23:03, 29 December 2007 (EST)

I did create it, and it was deleted, I believe at your behest. --Linus(plot evil tech) 23:19, 29 December 2007 (EST)
You repeatedly requested it. Not demanded, but approached it.
I honestly don't see why people here cannot get along. If someone insults you, just let it go. It's fantastically immature. --Linus(plot evil tech) 23:21, 29 December 2007 (EST)

My point being, it is hating to say, or imply, as Jack did, that I demanded it be made. I suggested it ONE time, and you were kind enough to make it. Why take away from one of the few cooperations that could have worked, by allowing others to make false implications after the fact? Wiki was a member of that hidden forum, you know. Let it go? So you think someone should be allowed to misrepresent the facts, and get away with it? Please check your email, for something on another matter that you requested. --TK/MyTalk 23:27, 29 December 2007 (EST)

I think it should be neutrally pointed out, and then let go, if at all possible. It shouldn't be harped upon. --Linus(plot evil tech) 23:28, 29 December 2007 (EST)
Well, I tried that, and you insulted me, mis-stated the facts, added to Wiki's implication that I demanded it, then came back and insulted me again. I never repeatedly requested it, and it was you, messaging me, that agreed it should be done, and created it. That was very nice of you, and I have always thanked you for it, no? You said I "approached" demanding it, which isn't even near factual. Gosh, are you so hard up for friends, you will allow others to lie to stay in "good graces"? I am done with this. Now even you cannot bring yourself to be fair, which I have always admired you for.  :-( --TK/MyTalk 23:34, 29 December 2007 (EST)
Dude, I simply forgot. No, you didn't demand it, I retract my statement. This whole thing is getting way too overblown.
See, stuff like this is why I'm a liberal. --Linus(plot evil tech) 00:01, 30 December 2007 (EST)
We both know that you are not a liberal. user talk:Bohdan 00:18, 30 December 2007 (EST)
And we all know that you're a sock. Pinto's5150 Talk 00:20, 30 December 2007 (EST)
TK - just go away, please. --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום
No, JO You. Maybe you should focus your efforts on RWW. --TK/MyTalk 12:28, 30 December 2007 (EST)

Sigh. --Linus(plot evil tech) 15:20, 30 December 2007 (EST)


I'm not exactly sure what you want to change, but go ahead! --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

There, I changed your username from "Wikinterpreter" to "Interpreted". --Linus(plot evil tech) 15:21, 30 December 2007 (EST)
Sorry, 'twas already done, and I missed that. --Linus(plot evil tech) 15:22, 30 December 2007 (EST)


I tried uploading but it said my file size was too big. Any ideas?User:PalMD

It uploaded but I think I broke it. Can you delete the files so that I can try to map them into a blog rather than have them free-floating? 20:37, 2 January 2008 (EST)

I need to upload from wordpress the "Connections" skin, then i have to remap my domain. 20:47, 2 January 2008 (EST)

New Gwenson[edit]

It's probably pointless, but can you add "New Gwenson" to the list of disallowed usernames so that those characters kick out? Stile4aly 23:40, 4 January 2008 (EST)

I will as soon as I can get the extension installed… no sever access at this time. Trent can do it, though. --Linus(plot evil tech) 00:45, 5 January 2008 (EST)


Did you ever edit on CP as "yourself"? If so, what was your username? I'm working on [[2]].

Thanks! humanUser talk:Human 00:47, 7 January 2008 (EST)

Never mind, I found you! humanUser talk:Human 01:02, 7 January 2008 (EST)
Very good :). --Linus(plot evil tech) 17:51, 8 January 2008 (EST)

Why Fox?[edit]

What makes you think I'm Fox? PoorEd 18:01, 13 January 2008 (EST)

Never mind. PoorEd 18:19, 13 January 2008 (EST)
Well, that comment seemed like his style… sorry :(. --Linus(plot evil tech) 19:11, 13 January 2008 (EST)

Following Linkage[edit]

Quick question - are all of RationalWiki's external links set to nofollow? Does that mean any and all spamvertising is ultimately in vain, google-wise? I had a spider crawl my user page a while back (when it was still covered in spamvertising), but it didn't end up where I wanted... I dunno if that's a function of nofollow links or just a function of me not understanding Google. Anyway, just wondering, if you could help explain that'd be great. UchihaKATON! 12:49, 14 January 2008 (EST)

Yeah, external links are, by default, nofollowed. It was originally implement to prevent Wikipedia from posing an attractive target for spam --Linus(plot evil tech) 16:27, 14 January 2008 (EST)
Addition to my previous question - does that mean that all my spamvertising here is in vain? Also, due to Jimminy overruling the nofollow vote at Wikipedia, will spamvertising (and not being caught) succeed there? UchihaKATON! 16:30, 19 January 2008 (EST)

By the way, Linus, a big chunk of your previous talk was deleted by the slimeball who put the deleted page template up above on it. humanUser talk:Human 18:41, 19 January 2008 (EST)
