BrainMop.png As a confirmed mustard jar for taking on this job as a Sysop on RationalWiki: I pledge to only block users if they ask for it, or insert unfunny vandalism.
I furthermore pledge that if I indulge in secret private conversations about you, we will make a formal report to the mob. Is that all?
If you impugn my motives without warrant, or challenge my "AUTHORITY", er, there is nothing I can or will do.

Please use the preview button. You made over 50 edits under 3 hours for an article.Hamburguesa con queso con un cara Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 13:07, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

ok I will use the preview button more. I got in the habit of not using it because my computer shuts off randomly, but I can figure out a solution, thank youNeiltyson1fan (talk) 18:31, 23 December 2019 (UTC)

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.


This is a friendly reminder to use the preview feature when editing, instead of clogging up the fossil record by taking 97+ edits to achieve what should have been accomplished in just 1 to 3. It makes it very difficult for others to contribute without losing their attempted changes to endless edit conflicts. --Goatspeed.

I'll make a chicken coop on the next few days since you're accusing me of hating my own people as a Chewbacca deffense. Making a strawman and ignoring/avoiding points is bad. Using ad balaculum and accusing people of being criminals because you lost a discussion is worse. 2804:214:8185:F284:1:2:CC97:CF6A (talk) 21:58, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

This IP is a ban evasion of IPs 2804:214:81DB:72DF:1:2:CCA7:2F2C, 2804:14c:5b72:856c:e4a5:71f4:2df5:57fb, and 2804:214:81de:615e:1:2:c299:18cc, and is threatening coop, despite 3 people blocking you before me, including CircularReasoning and Oxy. Go away. Other people concluded you were the users User:240 and User:AWALT, or associated with them, considering timing of posts, your prolific VPN usage, and how you reacted to your blocks on people's talk pages and blocked you before I did on that notion. you were also initially blocked by Oxy and Circ, not me, and blocked for bad faith talk page usage and edit warring. Neiltyson1fan (talk) 22:04, 3 January 2021 (UTC)
I'm not any of these posters nor I know who they are. I Just happen to have a dynamic IP, and I didn't evade, RW engine was incapable of ban me, blame the developer.I didn't know that too, I thought that the ban was lifted. The Coop Will proceed when my ban is over. I won't post before It.2804:214:81DB:72DF:1:2:CCA7:2F2C (talk) 00:44, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I already said, you can CheckUser me if you want to. Now, believing that I'm someone else Just because we posted around the same time doesn't make sense. As far as we know that poster can be your false-flag/astroturf. 2804:214:81DB:72DF:1:2:CCA7:2F2C (talk) 00:53, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
We don't have checkuser here; in fact, the community has overwhelmingly resolved not to implement it. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 01:31, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Guys, stop feeding the troll already. Dunno why y'all keep engaging with bad-faith commenters like this. --Goatspeed. How's my editingCircularREmail2.gifasoningPrototype lab 01:46, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
I dunno, I don't really like having proxy abusers on my talk page, now at 4 (known)IPs and counting, so to get this over with go ahead and file whatever you were going to file, mr IP editor, so it can be dismissed and you can go about your day sooner. Neiltyson1fan (talk) 02:10, 4 January 2021 (UTC)
Alrighty, since this is getting funny, I guess I'll play with this troll a bit (not you Neilty, you're okay): I'd gladly dismiss it like the courts did the suit to give Pence the dictatorial power to override the will of voters and the Donald's many other absurd lawsuits. --Goatspeed.

Permaban for GeeJayK[edit]

Can you explain to me why you permabanned GeeJayK without any discussion with other sysops? Spud (talk) 17:13, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Discussion is in the section right above you, with the "antisemmitism" section, including at least one mod. In the future try reading relevant talk pages before launching on a typical wiki admin power trip. No one on the MMT page or anyone reviewing the block log a week ago or whatever questioned the block back when it was obvious to everyone he was the sock referenced above. Neiltyson1fan (talk) 09:28, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I checked the (deleted) link in the block justification and that's not the same user. Could be a sock (they identify themselves as a sock, though not of GeeJayK specifically), but I'd like some evidence on that. This seems like some bullshit that might turn Modern Monetary Theory into new Israel/Palestine debate. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 17:41, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
I have unblocked GeeJayK because that user has clearly not done anything abusive or offensive. You cannot block other users just because they disagree with you or because you find then annoying. If you have any serious disagreements with other users in the future, please take your concerns to the All things in moderation page. If you unilaterally permaban anyone like that again, I will start Coop proceedings against you. Spud (talk) 05:39, 23 January 2021 (UTC)
@Spud What Knight Commander said, the reasoning is both on the talk page and block link. It's the same guy with the same spelling mistakes and broken english making account after account and using IP after IP. Those patrolling the MMT page knew of the issue. But I don't have any intentions to permaban anyone except the one user who many admins have banned before over and over. Neiltyson1fan (talk) 00:45, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
So, your "evidence" is misspelling? Believe or not, but only 5% of the world population speaks English as a first language. I have my account since 2018 (ie. older than yours) so I don't have to make another one. Indeed, if I was "trolling", like you suggested, don't you think this would be the first to go down the drain? I'll post by tomorrow on the MMT talkpage, but I'm done for now. Don't expect me to be polite with you anymore since you're not only incapable of saying sorry, but also admitting your blunders. Since you're apparently a newbie as a sysop, I won't press charges though. GeeJayK (talk) 01:08, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
no one else calls "edit wars", "edition wars", and you are the only person making these same spelling mistakes over and over, its apparent each time you join the page, if Spud wants to coop over it then you'll probably get blocked again given circ oxy and cosmic are all familiar with you Neiltyson1fan (talk) 01:11, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
eg, on MMT archive you call edit wars, "edition war" here , with the IP 2804:14C:5B72:856C:E4A5:71F4:2DF5:57FB, which is just one IP block evasion of yours, many of which are referenced right above here, here: Neiltyson1fan (talk) 01:14, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Permabanning GeeJayK again just in the hope that I'd start a Coop case against you was a very bad move. Be patient. Wait to see what other users say on the All things in moderation page first. But the way things are going, I think this is going to end with sanctions against both of you. Spud (talk) 02:32, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Except I didn't do anything wrong except maybe not knowing to use the right mod page once out of years of being here, I'm not participating in any coops over this btw despite what you are asserting about my intentions Neiltyson1fan (talk) 02:34, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
me ---> logged out, dunno if he emailed you or something but starting a coop over this would be a waste of everyones time when cosmic and circ's opiniion are right above this section Neiltyson1fan (talk) 02:37, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
You did something wrong by permabanning a user for a second time without yet having much support from the rest of the community. Since you said earlier that a Coop case against you would probably end in GeeJayK getting blocked, I assumed starting that Coop case was your intention. Look, you've started a discussion on the All things in moderation page now. The rest of the community now needs to decide what has to happen. Give it two weeks and don't permaban that user again in the meantime. Spud (talk) 07:19, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Fuck off my talk page for being so protective about a single user complaint and causing drama by making other mods suck up to you by not looking into it firstNeiltyson1fan (talk) 07:25, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
The whole debate is one section above, under "antisemmitism", and is now a total 180 just cuz a trustee gets involved. I know how wikis work, the top guys make all the final decisions, while all the underlings follow along in hopes of gifts later. I'm not waiting for anything. Fuck off my talk page. Neiltyson1fan (talk) 07:28, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Spent three hours going through proper procedures for a clear sock, as implicitly asked, and you threaten boomerang on a power trip cuz I used the place where you can yield power, typical wiki admin stuff, been around a few wikis, seen it dozens of timesNeiltyson1fan (talk) 07:55, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Here's whats gonna happen, ur gonna try to push for hard sanctions for questioning you authoritah about something literally no one cared about until you got involved. I'm not going to be in any coop (at all), maybe I'll get banned from at least one page due to your authoritah, and then you'll finally have a clear brazilian sock spew Friedmanesque garbage for years on a page I massively improved, all over being annoyed you had to respond to a user complaint, nice job.Neiltyson1fan (talk) 08:01, 24 January 2021 (UTC)
Banning me from the page will indeed get me off the page cuz I have other websites I work on, banning that brazilian sock will do nothing as he'll do whatever he wants with socks, as he has for weeks with tepid pushback, on an outdated Mediawiki that needs fucking board meetings to do a 2 minute task to update the software. If for some crazy reason you decide to start a coop on something Circ explicitly said he wouldn't let happen, i'll ignore it while it's happening and while it's happening, will edit the follownig the page about mediawiki upgrades to demonstrate how people's time could be used better User:Neiltyson1fan/How RationalWiki can autoupdate after switching to secure version Neiltyson1fan (talk) 08:04, 24 January 2021 (UTC)

Uh ok mr fancy pants but I got an award above and you were the one edit warring and insinuating violent people on weren't cranks Neiltyson1fan (talk) 18:27, 13 February 2021 (UTC)
You clearly didn't read the part where I stated there was some missional content, albeit a low amount. Also, congrats, I have the same award. But awards don't matter in this case, evidence does.
