Could you stop being so anal for once? Oxyaena Harass 22:03, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

We do not ban people permanently for doing silly things. This is the second time I cleaned up after you. Nerd (talk) 22:04, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
Guys, perhaps we should all review RationalWiki:Blocking policy before discussing this further. RoninMacbeth (talk) 22:09, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
@RoninMacbeth In case you missed it, the first time was yesterday, when Ox said something extremely nasty as a reason for banning someone. I removed it, but not the block.
Vandalism warrants a short-term block, not a permanent one. Nerd (talk) 22:16, 18 May 2019 (UTC)


Why M? — Dysk (contribs) 20:45, 2 June 2019 (UTC)
@Dysklyver I think it is amusing. Anyway, I did not put it there. I only replaced the random display option by listing them all. Nerd (talk) 21:59, 2 June 2019 (UTC)


Nerd, please do not edit WIGOs for tone. You are correct, in that reporting the news should try to be objective. But we are not reporting the news, the point of the WIGO is to present people's reporting that users find interesting, and think other people will also find interesting. If you want to present your WIGOs in your specific tone, please do so. At the same time, people also are allowed to present their WIGOs in a manner they have chosen. RoninMacbeth (talk) 22:04, 2 June 2019 (UTC)

Don't edit war either. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 21:00, 3 June 2019 (UTC)
Notice the difference in tone between what you said here and what you said to me. Oxyaena Harass 01:13, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
It's because Mario is a fucking cop who is willing to give a slap on the wrist to Nerd's flagrant bullshit because she plays favorites. Yikes. It's been a long time since I last posted here, and things haven't changed at all. James Earl Cash (talk) 06:54, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Maybe it's because I try to be nice to everyone unless seriously provoked? I write stuff I want to read. I treat others the way I want to be treated. Nerd (talk) 14:08, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

You were an ass to me on the Saloon Bar a while back without provocation. Oxyaena Harass 16:34, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I don't think that's exactly uncommon, yourself included... — Dysk (contribs) 18:36, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Don't think the change in tone means I play favorites. I'm sorry if I gave the wrong impression. You both have a history of edit warring and I was just patrolling your protection and ban logs which you keep repeatedly overdoing. But in both cases, I expect you two to do better. The advice remains the same though, and the messages actually don't differ that much, both being short and to the point. I don't know where James Earl Cash is coming from but he's unnecessarily escalating this conflict in making uncalled-for assumptions about me. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 18:55, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
Bend over backwards if you want to. James has referred to calling in moderators as "narcing", so I think he regards all moderators as cops.Ariel31459 (talk) 19:51, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

@Oxyaena You insulted quiet a few countries (Pakistan, India and a few other ones). I told you that you were over the top. Think about what you did. I'm pretty sure you wouldn't do that in real life, would you? Be nice! Oh, and thank you for protecting my user talk page against some weirdo who thought I wanted to create some "loony atheist blog." Nerd (talk) 23:50, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

@Ariel31459 Isn't policing this site what moderators do? They have more power and responsibility than Sysops, yes? Law and order, damn it! What is this place? A corner for anarchists? Nerd (talk) 23:46, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

And because of that, I try hard to play fair. It feels hard to take an opinion when I'm pressured by either side to give what they want, honestly. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 00:04, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario You are in a unique position to see how hard it is to be police officers or judges. The best tend to have Olympian detachment, which is hard to do because humans are emotional creatures. Someone else -- Spud? -- said volunteering to be a moderator is a thankless job. I agree completely. Good luck!
You're remembering it wrong, anyways they were indirectly insulting me. I have a blog on Wordpress, so.... Oxyaena Harass 01:11, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure it was you who threw around the f-word right in front of countries' names. Try not to use coarse language, alright?
I'm not really sure what moderators can do. The best thing to do is to remain calm Nerd. It's all business as usual, eh? Ariel31459 (talk) 02:57, 5 June 2019 (UTC)
@Ariel31459 Just another day at the office. The world is in great shape. Nerd (talk) 15:58, 5 June 2019 (UTC)


I've started a coop case about your edit warring. Argue your case there, I've run out of patience. Avida Dollarsher again 20:51, 2 June 2019 (UTC)


...disappeared. Shit. Oxyaena Harass 08:36, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Wake up Nerd! Time to go to work. Ariel31459 (talk) 16:31, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

@Nerd Does this mean that you've LANCB? G Man (talk) 18:57, 2 August 2019 (UTC)

Considering the last time they edited me and another editor threw a huge storm over their edits by inserting npov into wigos, and then maybe resorted to personal attacks, yeah they left. If you are reading this, Nerd, I am sorry for the way I behaved. Oxyaena Harass 19:53, 2 August 2019 (UTC)
@G Man I'm afraid so.
@Oxyaena Don't worry. I have moved on. Nerd (talk) 02:33, 5 September 2019 (UTC)

Can you contribute to the 'Traditional Korean medicine' document?[edit]

I curse and hate oriental medicine very much, but many Koreans don't seem to think TKM so badly. But I don't know much about TKM. Can you contribute if you know any information? sorry..--BluePink (talk) 08:54, 4 October 2019 (UTC)

@BluePink I'm really sorry but (1) I know very little about that topic and (2) I am no longer spending time here at RationalWiki. Nerd (talk) 23:33, 22 October 2019 (UTC)
@Nerd I wish you would reconsider retirement. The brain drain here is starting to be noticeable. All the best, Ariel31459 (talk) 12:57, 14 November 2019 (UTC).
@Ariel31459 Thank you for the kind words, but I have been here long enough to realize this is not the right environment for me. Wikipedia suits me much better. Rational Wiki is suffering from a brain drain? I thought as much when I visited once in a while out of curiosity. It's almost always the same people editing. I don't have information about viewership, however. Best wishes, Nerd (talk) 22:26, 21 November 2019 (UTC).
