Garlic? How dare you speak of my nemesis! (Thank you for the welcome) --Onion (talk) 21:27, 1 August 2010 (UTC)
Nemesis eh? You'll never have a greater nemesis than me my bulbous friend. AceX-102 01:22, 2 August 2010 (UTC)


Seeing as how you like making other people delete spam pages for you, I have made you a sysop so that you can delete your own damn spam pages and I can continue to drink beer without interruption. Here's an instruction manual for you. The Spikey Punk I'm punking my punk! 02:26, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Yay! Enjoy your beer! --signed by an Oniontalk edits 02:33, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Please consult talk page in future[edit]

We don't do unilateral reversions around here. The issue is being discussed on the talk page. [[1]] This is not a valid method of social interaction. (talk) 17:11, 12 August 2010 (UTC)


what the fuck is this "rational wiki" even about and what the fuck is your problem asshole??? why are you allowed to have a page and i'm not? i was just teasing a friend that told me about this place and you deleted my page and won't even tell me why? — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 21:30, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Feel the spiritual cosmicality[edit]

Well, I wasn't going to add that category myself. But yes. Yes. It is. - David Gerard (talk) 23:28, 16 August 2010 (UTC)

Indeed. I imagine that's what I would see if I ever took illegal drugs. Considering that New Age hippies probably take illegal drugs, it's a perfect fit for the template. --Onion Hi! :) 23:40, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
Drugs to make you LAME - David Gerard (talk) 23:45, 16 August 2010 (UTC)
And stupid, considering that they believe that random crystals have magic healing power, or "spirit energy", or whatever. --Onion Hi! :) 23:50, 16 August 2010 (UTC)


Sorry about my friends immature comments. Ex-Troll CheerleaderI'm a teenage girl; get ALLstate to protect yourself from Mayhem like me 01:39, 17 August 2010 (UTC)

Locking pages[edit]

It is against the rules to do so at the sysop level for a indefinite period of time. Please unlock it. Otherwise, I'll have to unlock it myself. Gooniepunk2010 Oi! Oi! Oi! 22:09, 18 August 2010 (UTC)

As an addendum, if they re-create it, just keep deleting it. As Trent has said, it's more effort to re-create it on their part than it is to delete it on your part. Punky Your mental puke relief 22:12, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
I would have unprotected it myself, but my electricity keeps shutting off! --Onion Hi! :) 22:15, 18 August 2010 (UTC)
Your electricity keeps shutting off? Don't blame me. I was in the kitchen, I swear! Lord Goonie Hooray! I'm helping! 22:18, 18 August 2010 (UTC)


judicial block lengths, like 1 day at the most! tmtoulouse 22:41, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, I'll unblock them later, infinite is just my reflexes. Besides, there's not option for one day, the highest finite time is 9 hours. --Onion Hi! :) 22:43, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
That's probably plenty for this kind of activity. Thanks for doing the blocks anyway :). tmtoulouse 22:43, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
You can type in "1 day" or quite a few arbitrary lengths of time. Though as Trent notes, 31416 seconds is enough to make the kid reboot his modem - David Gerard (talk) 23:08, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

War Crimes[edit]

Hi Onion! Can you prove that Nuremberg is better known than Tokyo in America? I think you might be correct, but as fellow member of the reality based community I would like to know how you know. Thorvelden (talk)

Well for one thing, they teach the Nuremberg trials in school, but not the Tokyo trails. --Onion Hi! :) 01:06, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
True. I detect Eurocentism in that focus on European or Asian victims. Thanks for battling the yahoos. Thorvelden (talk)

getting bored?[edit]

Or are you like TK? masturbating to the block log day and night? RW: a pathetic wiki... with an awesome user creation log!!!!! heh (talk) 01:13, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Pat on the back[edit]

Good job fighting that moron. Their wandalism isn't even original or good! The Goonie 1 What's this button do? Uh oh.... 02:17, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

I've always enjoyed an occasional game of wack a wandal. --Onion Hi! :) 02:49, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
I laughed for a solid minute at "Block me for 9 hours." "No." Tetronian you're clueless 02:58, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
thanks for tidying up my talk page after the vandal Hamster (talk) 04:13, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
And thanks for tidying up after my rename with all the redirects. Blue Talk 00:41, 31 August 2010 (UTC)


What? An embedded youtube vid crashed your machine? What are you on? Vista? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 21:25, 31 August 2010 (UTC)

"People from Asia" category[edit]

Should it go as well then? PACODOGwoof, bitches 23:58, 5 September 2010 (UTC)

can we debunk conservapedia's articles[edit]

are we allowed to debunk conservapedia articles, is saw a funny one about biblical scientific foreknowledge in the bible and want to debunk it. 900674 (talk) 20:53, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Certainly, you can. Though you should, probably, put it in our CONservapedia space. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 20:54, 6 September 2010 (UTC)
We encourage it! --Onion Hi! :) 20:56, 6 September 2010 (UTC)

Article Edit[edit]

Christ, that didn't stay long.

I was wondering why you're not fine with the edit but you are fine with the statement 'the conclusion is blindingly obvious because correlation implies causation'. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs


I don't think you're being very rational here, I'm asking a legitimate question. I'm not trying to be confrontational, I just don't understand what's going down with that article. Please see the talk page there for more info if you would like.

- Oops, sorry, didn't see you'd moved it. :)


Wow, you're fast. I swear you were adding that template before I even saved it! ħumanUser talk:Human 02:11, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, I could go even faster if my computer would stop freezing up! --Onion Hi! :) 02:36, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Wow, I really appreciate you doing the hard work. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:12, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Hey, you're welcome :-) . All I really do is copy {{media}} and paste it on every page, its not really that hard, its just a little tedious. Also this boosted my edit count, which I really don't need to care about anymore at this rate. --Onion Hi! :) 03:31, 12 September 2010 (UTC)
Ey did the same for my communism sidebar. (He? She? Ey?) And as an unofficial member of the RationalWiki Pat on the Back Society, let me give you a Pat on the Back. Enjoy. Pat on the Back not valid in the state of Utah. Blue Talk 04:17, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Alright, you intelligent and productive user[edit]

You finally have an article about you are the Wiki that watches RationalWiki. Just remember you can't whitewash your own article there. Enjoy! Punky Your mental puke relief 04:40, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Well, I guess I should have saw that one coming! --Onion Hi! :) 23:02, 14 September 2010 (UTC)

Thanks for the welcome[edit]

Hey, thanks for the welcome just now!

Since you obviously know more about RationalWiki than I do, and since I have your attention, you could peek at my post to the saloon about whether it would be appropriate to use RationalWiki to organize for the "Rally to Restore Sanity".

Do you have a feel on whether that would be appropriate? Or, who I should ask to try to get permission to do so?

Thanks! --CreedShandor (talk) 20:48, 19 September 2010 (UTC)

This wiki is a mobocracy. If the mob likes your idea, then we can run with it. --Onion Hi! :) 20:53, 19 September 2010 (UTC)
From the looks of it, the community has given it its blessing, so long as you keep it out of the mainspace. This should be an interesting new experience, IMO. And we won't screw up the publicity like CONservapedia did when they got Colbert's attention. The Goonie Punk Can't sleep, clowns will eat me! 01:16, 20 September 2010 (UTC)


What was "Elassint's" stroke of genius? Blue Talk 03:21, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Still wondering. :) Blue Talk 03:57, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
If you're not Elassint, your edits to their talk page will be rolled back. Actually, they will be. A simple comment under your old log in will of course, make smooth the ravages of disputation. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:20, 20 September 2010 (UTC)
PS, we forgive and forget easily, so don't worry about that. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:21, 20 September 2010 (UTC).


At the forum you created, links, please, more info? Appreciated in advance. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:51, 26 September 2010 (UTC)

Footnote joke in Video games[edit]

Have you read the OS Wars page? It's just smartassery. You're taking my "flamebait" label a bit too seriously. EVDebs (talk) 23:22, 6 October 2010 (UTC)

Thank you for your kind vandalism!
As a token of my gratitude, please accept this link.

P.S. You really pulled that one out of the dust heap of history! Blue Talk 02:45, 11 October 2010 (UTC)


Is it true that you have journeyed away from this planet and to the planet Lumeniki? Punky Your mental puke relief 23:02, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

It looks like he only made one recent edit there. I certainly hope he hasn't gone to the other side, though. Or should I say the lumenother lumenside. Tetronian you're clueless 23:08, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
I was mostly curious if he agreed with an observation made by one of my bandmates: that Lumeniki seems like it was written by an alien from another planet that's in the process of studying humans on Earth. When my bandmate said that, I was like "Holy fuck! You're right!" The Goonie 1 What's this button do? Uh oh.... 23:11, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
That actually makes a lot of sense! Wow. Tetronian you're clueless 23:20, 11 October 2010 (UTC)
That would explain the anal probe ey sent me. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:53, 11 October 2010 (UTC)

You are a bot.[edit]

You have one hour, after which I will make you a regular user again. Unless, of course, some other 'crat wishes to keep an eye on you.... Punky Your mental puke relief 18:20, 16 October 2010 (UTC)

Give me a minute to set something up. -- Nx / talk 18:21, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
There you go, just go to Special:UserRights/Onion and you can bot and unbot yourself. -- Nx / talk 18:27, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
Could whatever you just did for Onion perhaps be a new user group/right, that lets relatively trusted users bot/unbot themselves? ħumanUser talk:Human 06:51, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
It is a new usergroup. -- Nx / talk 06:52, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
What is it called? ħumanUser talk:Human 08:00, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
It's quite obvious I think. -- Nx / talk 08:03, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Had you appended the words "called 'Ninja'" to your last post it would have save us both some time. Now we need to document it? ħumanUser talk:Human 08:06, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Had you looked at the user rights log you would've saved Onion a few orange boxes. -- Nx / talk 08:11, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
And do you mind renaming it something sensible, like "trusted bot" or "botter" or something other than fricking "Ninja"? Sorry for the orange boxes, Onion. ħumanUser talk:Human 08:07, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
MediaWiki:Grouppage-ninja, MediaWiki:Group-ninja, MediaWiki:Group-ninja-member Knock yourself out. -- Nx / talk 08:11, 17 October 2010 (UTC)
Can we move this to my talk page to spare Onion, and tell me what this means? Can I just make pages just like those MW pages and do what you did? Or do I need server access to rename/recreate the group? ħumanUser talk:Human 08:19, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

Category renaming et cetera[edit]

I learned this recently from Nx - to force a reprocessing of categories, you can use a dummy edit, viz., clicking "edit" and then "save" without modifying anything. Blue Talk 05:53, 17 October 2010 (UTC)

template:boring loser[edit]

Thanks for the repair! ħumanUser talk:Human 04:39, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
