Good edit! AceThe Rep Grows Bigger 06:10, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

I went out on a bit of a limb, but I figured I was on solid ground with the WIGO:World crowd. Thanks for the feedback, Ace! (As an aside, why do I have to enter captchas when editing my own talk page? I agree with the captcha system, just an observation. lol) Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 06:14, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
Fixed that captcha issue (I think), let me know if you have any problems, dawg. AceThe Rep Grows Bigger 06:17, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
I got 99 problems but a captcha ain't one. Don't shoot me. Thanks, Ace. Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 06:22, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
Apparently I am in trouble for infringing on some users delicate sensibilities so I thought I would try being "kind". It won't last. Heh. AceThe Rep Grows Bigger 06:25, 8 July 2012 (UTC)
I'll treasure this talk page conversation thread forever, then. I'll screenshot it, print it out on acid-free archival paper, laminate it, and then seal it between two blocks of concrete buried in my back yard. Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 06:32, 8 July 2012 (UTC)

user name[edit]

If I may, what does it mean? It sounds kind of like a dinosaur. Sam Tally-ho! 02:37, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Oh wait, I see. Never mind. Sam Tally-ho! 02:38, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
I just posted in RationalWiki:Requests to change username because I just realized that for over a month I've had it misspelled. Ochotona princeps are these cute little fellas. What's interesting is that they look like tailless rodents, but they're actually lagomorphs. Their tails have disappeared from external view as they evolved (like humans and our tailbones), and they live primarily in subalpine regions, preferentially in rock falls where they can create dens between the boulders where their predators can't reach. You said never mind, but I answered anyway! Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 02:42, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
They actually are pretty cute. They look kind of like a cross between a mouse and a bunny. Sam Tally-ho! 02:46, 15 July 2012 (UTC)
Seeing as laporidae (rabbits) and ochotonidae (pika) are both lagomorphs, it certainly makes sense. Pikas chirp loud squeaks to warn each other of danger. I'm pretty sure that the Japanese or Northern Pika (which has my favourite taxonomic name ever, ochotona hyperborea yesoensis) is at least a partial inspiration for that damned yellow electric money machine, especially the Pi! sound, which the Japanese would use as the phonetic onomatopoeia word for the warning squeaks real pikas make. This is the reason for my signature. Ochtonaprincepsnot a pokémon 02:53, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

Stop feeding the troll.[edit]

Don't feed the troll. Thanks. Theory of Practice "the standards of the site are ultimately an expression of the community makeup, and not a set of rules or policies." 23:36, 21 July 2012 (UTC)

I had that all chambered up already when you'd folded that, so I left it in. I'd said what I wanted to say to moronface anyway. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 23:37, 21 July 2012 (UTC)


I assume you've never encountered anybody with views varient with your own. I assume you've lived your live in liberal enclaves where everyone thinks alike and where thoughtcrime is punishable by death. But I am not trolling. Uneasy as that makes you, you should respect the diversity of opinion thats exists. As should this site, otherwise its just another liberal message board as opposed to a 'rationalwiki' kind of website. A rational site should be neutral on political opinions, it should evaluate facts. Once you deny the right of facts to be presented, you pretty much confirm your ideological narrowness. — Unsigned, by: MarkCarthy / talk / contribs

You assume wrongly, and that's not at all surprising. You are trolling, because you are stating opinions and reciting a laundry list of homophobic right-wing talking points. You also seem to have a misunderstanding of what RationalWiki is for. A fact without substantiation (i.e. references) is an opinion, and you have not given any facts, no matter how many times you decide to call them that. You have outright refused to give references. You are a troll. Please stop commenting on my talk page unless you are prepared to talk facts. Also, sign your comments, bitch. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 23:54, 21 July 2012 (UTC)
LOL! Tisane (talk) 01:15, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

I apologise[edit]


I'm sorry. I was trolling and went too far. I'm pretty high too. I just thought everything I said was pretty fucking hilarious, it goes without saying that I believe none of it and am basically a libertarian. I hoped you'd all get in a lather and starting running around in an existential crisis about whether to tolerate me or not. But you're all a pack of boring wankers nowadays. And yes, I am the batman (IE, MARCUSCICERO) — Unsigned, by: MarkCarthy / talk / contribs

I was preparing to ask a sysop to block your dumb ass for a while if you kept on insisting on trolling, so thank you for apologizing. I'm the one who wrote the R v Mernagh article, so I'm sure you can guess where I stand on getting high on reefer. Enjoy your ride. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 00:11, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

You are a sysop[edit]

Have at. Blue (is useful) 01:56, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

lol, that was unexpected. Um, thanks? Heh. I'll do mah best. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 01:57, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
Get prepared. This job is the job of a lifetime. You'll never be bored again as a RationalWiki sysop. It's like being Batman, but with more buttons. Blue (is useful) 02:00, 22 July 2012 (UTC)
As long as I get a company car, I'm fine. Doesn't have to be the Batmobile, though, as I expect the mods have that one booked out for years in advance. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 02:03, 22 July 2012 (UTC)


I appreciate that you stood up for principle, even though you personally (and correctly) consider Rob to be a vile toad.--ADtalkModerator 23:43, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

I don't like the way Rob's been behaving, but the rules about removing sysop exist for a reason. If you're going to ignore the rules, then what's the point of having them, and if that's the case, we might as well just be Conservapedia without so many articles about Homosexuality and ______. Because that's how they do it over in that backwater ditch of a website. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 01:27, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

Talk page[edit]

When you say you can't edit my talk page - what error message are you getting? The page isn't locked and even if it was, as a sysop you'd be able to post there. --Psygremlin (talk) 10:07, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

I don't get an error. I simplified slightly because of the limited space in the block reason. I get exactly the same screen anyone gets (if they're using wikEd, obviously) and I can edit all I want, blank your shit, anything. But when I hit the save page button, it's as if I hadn't even tried. I kept trying to suggest you bring up that fucked-up signature problem from earlier to the technical support page, and that's when it would ignore me. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 10:10, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
I've just posted there as a BoN and it works fine. Sounds like a problem on your side? --Psygremlin (talk) 10:12, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Let me try turning off wikEd and trying. Barring that, I'll try as a BoN. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 10:13, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
(ec) WikEd is probably severely outdated. -- Nx / talk 10:14, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Ditching wikEd did the trick. Also, what's the significance of (EC)? Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 10:16, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
(ec) Hm, no, it's pulling in the latest version on WP, and it works for me. Try clearing cache, if it's still broken, open up your browser's error console and check javascript errors.
EC is edit conflict. It means I wrote my edit before I read your reply, probably, so take that into account. For other people it probably means "Grr, you caused an edit conflict, prepare to die in a horrible and very painful manner". -- Nx / talk 10:20, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Ahh, I see. I suppose I should consider marking mine when that happens. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 10:21, 24 July 2012 (UTC)
Be sure to add ECxNinetytrillion!!!!1!! in aggravated cases. -- Nx / talk 10:23, 24 July 2012 (UTC)

thanks a lot[edit]

Just a quick note: I do not know whose sock you are, nor actually do I care, but I just wanted to thank you for being SO concerned about this wiki that you took it upon your good self to start the current cooping. C®ackeЯ 05:15, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Not sure if sarcastic or serious, but I'll take it either way. And I'm nobody's sock. And anyone with Checkuser can go ahead and validate that. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 05:20, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Umm, what was the block for? C®ackeЯ 05:45, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
You don't ever see sysops using next-to-no-time blocks to communicate? And I don't appreciate people calling me a "faggot", so I asked if you eat out your sister with that mouth. Idiot. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 05:47, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Oh, okay then. That's funny. Haha. My sister! Lord that's rich! (Oh by-the-by, the edit comment wasn't directed at you sweetie, but me, for forgetting to sign the page the first time. ) --C®ackeЯ 05:54, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Ah, my apologies for the misunderstanding, then. I rescind my insults and my comment regarding your relationship with your sister (if you have one). Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 05:56, 25 July 2012 (UTC)
Not a problem, it was a reasonable inference. Oh, except for a couple of people touching the server, no one has it checkuser here, we had it ast one time but largely got rid of it: it's not installed. Oh, bring in a supeona and I'm sure it could be dusted off and taped into position. C®ackeЯ 06:34, 25 July 2012 (UTC)


They only lost 'em because of the May business, and it's fairly common to give people back their rights when they first poke their heads back up. I'd have given them only autopatrolled, but that seemed a bit sad given that they had been a sysop before. Peter This is not my first temporal anomaly 06:20, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Fair enough. Just looked kind of unusual to me at first glance... "Welcome back! Here's yer mop!" Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 06:22, 25 July 2012 (UTC)

Wow, you must care a lot![edit]

I notice you've been here, what? six weeks. You sure do must care a lot to make sure I got a load of your mind for unblocking a user you shouldn't rightly know existed. C®ackeЯ 00:48, 9 August 2012 (UTC)

Who did I unblock? Nobody! Read the logs again. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 00:54, 9 August 2012 (UTC)
Herp, reading comprehension fail. But anyway, I was making a note, not telling you you're wrong. If I thought you were wrong, I'd block him, wouldn't I? Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 1013 points 00:55, 9 August 2012 (UTC)


How dare you deny it, infidel! (talk) 10:07, 24 September 2012 (UTC)


I don't expect you to stop deleting my additions, but could you at least attempt an edit summary so I can see what the supposed problem is. Peterdjones (talk) 12:06, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

I agree. There is too much deletion going on without giving proper reasons and some of it is just trolling. Proxima Centauri (talk) 12:17, 24 September 2012 (UTC)
Prox, shut up and go away forever. ТyBother me 12:19, 24 September 2012 (UTC)

Oh, you're a fellow fat gay liberal?[edit]

Me, too. Not really an atheist, though; more like an "I-don't-give-a-damn"-ist. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 13:57, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

Well, I am overweight, not straight, and fairly left-leaning (by American standards), so... if the shoe fits. I was going for an admittedly-uninspired Kendoll impression. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 14:00, 19 December 2012 (UTC)

About Your Welcome Notice[edit]

I have the rollback and reviewer permissions on Wikipedia and I have influential friends on Encyclopedia Dramatica so I already know how wiki's work. -- (talk) 07:00, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

"Influential" friends at ED, you say? We'd better watch out then. Peter mqzp 07:02, 9 March 2013 (UTC)
I don't give a flaming fuck who you're friends with. This is neither Wikipedia nor ED. Please read the community standards if you wish to contribute here. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 07:03, 9 March 2013 (UTC)

"I wondered if he was MC"[edit]

It's the mark of a true RWian that they end up wondering if trolls are MC. SophieWilder 14:15, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

He suckered me last July, and from trawling through RWW to see what's worth keeping, I saw his name come up a lot. So... yeah. However, I think that BoN was genuine anal discharge from over at Skinheadpedia. Too genuinely awful for MC to manage. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 14:19, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

"Why, Stabby?"[edit]


Sorry, I was on a touch screen and must've pressed the rollback button without realizing it. (And I really should've noticed, because I was checking to see what Sophie had to say, but then couldn't find it on the page.) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:03, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

I figured it was accidental. No worries, easy enough to fix. Ochotonaprincepsnot a pokémon 22:04, 12 March 2013 (UTC)

Yi Deokil[edit]

I decided I should ref it more, and it's hard to do that for books. So I've decided to ref only in the Internet. And be polite.--Seonookim (talk) 07:57, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

I noticed that you added more since that first edit. Carry on, then. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 07:58, 15 March 2013 (UTC)

I feel so loved[edit]

to be the center of so much attention.--MikallakiM 14:34, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

He doesn't know how to quit you. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 14:38, 16 March 2013 (UTC)

On the "men's rights" elimination[edit]

I only made it because I thought it was the right one; there is already a version of this redirect in caps - "Men's Rights" - so I decided to make the new one - "Men's rights". Faunas (talk) 10:56, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

If you end up writing a sentence where you end up with a redtext men's rights will you create yet a third redirect? Pipe them instead, man. This is a minor point of contention, mind. I'm more concerned with your paranoia around Mr. Gardener. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 10:59, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Important Announcement[edit]

THE WIKIPEDIA GUY IS BACK!! -- (talk) 03:53, 25 May 2013 (UTC)

A favour[edit]

We need to make the Stephen Harper article more readable. I've tried to make it more like our take on Tony Blair, but it's still overly bloated (79 sources is way too much). Can you take a whack at it? Osaka Sun (talk) 20:18, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

I'll take a look when I've got a bit of time, sure. Happy Canada Day! Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 22:21, 1 July 2013 (UTC)

RE: same sex marriage prediction[edit]

On that prediction, so you mean 4 more in addition to Utah and Oklahoma, for a total of 6 states, or a total of 4 including Utah and Oklahoma? If the latter, the prediction was just vindicated, as Virginia's ban fell two weeks ago Thursday and Texas' just went down today. Compro01 (talk) 20:39, 26 February 2014 (UTC)

Four additional states, not including Utah and Oklahoma. However, yes, I saw that, and my prediction's halfway to correct only six weeks later. Turning out better than predicted, so far, but the fight's got a long way to go yet. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 03:14, 28 February 2014 (UTC)
Prediction isn't done quite yet. Your prediction specified "by federal judges". The Arkansas one was by a state judge. Compro01 (talk) 16:14, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
Welp, that's solved. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 06:49, 14 May 2014 (UTC)
