What exactly is a "blag?" Also, could you stop using it in URLs? It turns the reference into a 404 error.Thanks, RoninMacbeth (talk) 14:10, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

It's a word for "blog", in reference to this xkcd comic. Christopher (talk) 14:52, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
What? LynnR (talk) 14:55, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Ah, figured it out. I use a word replacer extension and it apparently seems to have also changed content when editing pages, not just when I view them. Disabled it, sorry. LynnR (talk) 14:57, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
It's ok. Could you indent your talk page comments? Christopher (talk) 14:58, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, sorry, I'm kind of new to wiki software. LynnR (talk) 15:08, 19 September 2017 (UTC)

Vandal binning IPs[edit]

Please don't, it's permanent. Christopher (talk) 17:56, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Didn't realize that, sorry. LynnR (talk) 20:24, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

Saluton! Mi estas feliĉega trovi alian Esperanton parolanto sur RationalWiki! Mi aldonos mia nomo al la listo. Ankaŭ, bonvolu pardonas pri mia malbona gramatiko, ĉar mi estas ankoraŭ lernas. Ĝis poste, LynnR (talk) 19:12, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Stop overusing protection[edit]

You do know that blocking IPs for an hour is a thing? —ClickerClock (talk) 02:17, 17 October 2017 (UTC)

When it's clear that they're obviously coming back, as the Spain and tree octopus (the only pages I've protected) BoNs did, blocking them for an hour isn't going to do anything helpful, and I'm not going to block an IP for more than 3 days on the off chance that it changes. Go ahead and promote me if the best option in those cases was really just blocking the IP for an hour, or maybe actually look at the IPs' editing patterns on the pages I protected. LynnR (talk) 02:44, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
The BoN just made two edits on the Spain article within 6 minutes. The BoN on the Conservapedia article made three edits within 10 minutes. You have only blocked two people. Try using the block option more. —ClickerClock (talk) 08:30, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
You're right about the Spain one, I'm not sure why I didn't see that. But on the CP article, the BoN made a bunch of edits on 9/28, then came back on 10/16. LynnR (talk) 12:39, 17 October 2017 (UTC)
Because [1]? Anna Livia (talk) 17:49, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
I didn't expect the Spanish Inquisition. LynnR (talk) 22:18, 25 October 2017 (UTC)
I assumed most people would expect what the link would be (or would get the joke if they didn't). Anna Livia (talk) 11:02, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
You were supposed to say "Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!" You've disappointed me, @Anna Livia. LynnR (talk) 13:26, 26 October 2017 (UTC)
Some jokes work better with a slight pause to the punchline. Anna Livia (talk) 21:36, 26 October 2017 (UTC)

The pedophilia page[edit]

Stop denying psychological studies that indicate pedophilia as a disorder only referring to prepubescents. Pedophilia is not simply "attraction to a minor." Statutory rape and child molestation are two separate crimes. This doesn't mean statutory rape isn't harmful, but is not scientifically categorized as an act of pedophilia.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

@, please sign your talk page comments.
This is not what the problem is, and the scientific definition is already written on the page. You are editing it to say that attraction to adolescents is biologically natural, which is false. яεvεятεя σғ ωαη∂αℓιsм, ραтяσℓℓεя σғ ε∂ιтs, ΓУППЯ ・「ҭагк」・асђіεѵеϻԑηтѕ・тіме: 18:01, 31 October 2017 (UTC)
@LynnR There aren't a lot of specific studies that point to adults being attracted to teenagers, however it is biologically natural because anyone post-puberty is considered fertile, regardless of age. Also, many teens look like adults so the natural instinct of adults are to have some sexual attraction.

This is a pretty good explanation: It also points to the fact that due to adults making sex a taboo topic for teenagers, this is often what makes them feel uncomfortable. So part of it is societal conditioning. (talk) 18:28, 31 October 2017 (UTC)

Blocking the terrorism in Poland BoN[edit]

Why? Christopher (talk) 20:54, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

@Christopher They added that "terrorism" section to the same page twice today and once before today. Was I mistaken in awarding a ban for that? I assumed it was enough to count, since it was reverted 3 times and it was probably going to become an edit war. яεvεятεя σғ ωαη∂αℓιsм, ραтяσℓℓεя σғ ε∂ιтs, ΓУППЯ ・「ҭагк」・асђіεѵеϻԑηтѕ・тіме: 21:11, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
It's only an edit war if the editor in question knows about reverting etc, the BoN could be new to wikis. I think they were about to write a section about terrorism in Poland (who knows if it would've been accurate and relevant, there's no reason it couldn't be) but lost their edits due to edit conflictsWikipedia's W.svg with the people reverting them. Christopher (talk) 21:19, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
@Christopher Eh, maybe. It seems more like they were adding an empty section to make a point (specifically that Poland doesn't have terrorism due to its restrictive immigration laws), but maybe I'm just a pessimist. яεvεятεя σғ ωαη∂αℓιsм, ραтяσℓℓεя σғ ε∂ιтs, ΓУППЯ ・「ҭагк」・асђіεѵеϻԑηтѕ・тіме: 21:23, 1 November 2017 (UTC)
I think that's stretching it a bit, always assume good faith. Christopher (talk) 21:25, 1 November 2017 (UTC)

Dog Biscuits[edit]

Is probably a Grawp-style troll. If they creepily talk about making brunette girls "smile," then you're free to ban. RoninMacbeth (talk) 04:32, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

Okay, I wasn't sure on how exactly to handle that. яεvεятεя σғ ωαη∂αℓιsм, ραтяσℓℓεя σғ ε∂ιтs, ΓУППЯ ・「ҭагк」・асђіεѵеϻԑηтѕ・тіме: 14:06, 3 November 2017 (UTC)

My edits[edit]

What are wrong with my edits? They are factually correct? The "caution click" and "ephebophilia" pages are not relevant to the pedophile activism page. Please do your research. (talk) 23:33, 5 November 2017 (UTC)

Given that these are rather highly-charged topics, and you don't have any editing record beyond this, it would be best for you to take it to the appropriate page's talk page first. Bongolian (talk) 02:07, 6 November 2017 (UTC)
What Bongolian said. яεvεятεя σғ ωαη∂αℓιsм, ραтяσℓℓεя σғ ε∂ιтs, ΓУППЯ ・「ҭагк」・асђіεѵеϻԑηтѕ・тіме: 02:53, 6 November 2017 (UTC) and Pianoman[edit]

Going by their 'ditties' these are the same person.

At least my ditty was relevant (and I tried counting the syllables). Anna Livia (talk) 22:16, 15 November 2017 (UTC)

I have no idea what you're talking about, are you sure you have the right person? a ƽøȼɪаլ յμʃтɪȼε шаѓѓɪøӷ @ 22:19, 15 November 2017 (UTC)
You blocked one of them. Anna Livia (talk) 10:02, 16 November 2017 (UTC)

Colonize the moon[edit]

A white (hence racist) man trying to colonize the Moon.

So, was'nt funny the joke about the white imperialist trying to colonize the Moon? McLaghing (talk) 17:47, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Not particularly, and it didn't improve the article at all. Gœʦ ϝϭг ςαιε @ 19:01, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
While a pun on the word "Puck" improves the article a lot... Let's just say that the irony on RW is entirely in a specific direction. McLaghing (talk) 22:49, 23 November 2017 (UTC)

Nice catch.[edit]

Thanks!€h33s3βurg3rF@€3 (talkstalk) 04:12, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

No problem! Gœʦ ϝϭг Ѕæⳑ @ 04:43, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

Hello there![edit]

You have reverted my edits on the clogosphere. I do not know why you reverted them, so I have reverted your reversion. Please use the summary to write down your reasons next time! -- (talk) 04:42, 24 November 2017 (UTC)

They're not really clogosphere-worthy. I don't remember whether it's talk-page style where you can post whatever you want, though (initially thought otherwise, but now I'm not so sure), so I'll leave it up this time for someone who does know to fix if necessary. Also, I tend to use the rollback button because it's more convenient, but you can't put an edit summary in if you use it. Gœʦ ϝϭг Ѕæⳑ @ 04:46, 24 November 2017 (UTC)
