I don't disagree with you on your comment on the Talk:Trans-exclusionary radical feminism though I suggest you break it into paragraphs if you can't show brevity. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:12, 18 May 2018 (UTC)

same here. i also agree that terfs are terrible, terrible people. БaбyЛuigiOнФire🚓(T|C) 21:24, 18 May 2018 (UTC)
I’ll make sure to do that, and sorry about all that. --Only Sort of Dumb 16:53, 19 May 2018 (UTC)
I tried to do some editing and changes but it was quickly reversed. --Only Sort of Dumb 03:53, 21 May 2018 (UTC)

Oh! Well I appreciate the advancement though I don't know if I deserve such power. --Only Sort of Dumb 02:09, 9 August 2018 (UTC)


Don made you a sysop a while back, although he did briefly remove it while you were having that flame war, I have restored it now. — Dysk (contribs) 12:32, 24 January 2019 (UTC)

I don't know if I should really have sysop powers anyways. I haven't been an active user on this wiki for long. - Only Sort of Dumb 09:15, 26 January 2019 (UTC)

Hey, man[edit]

I didn't expect to see you here anytime soon. How's it going? I`m making you a Ninja BTW. Palaeonictis Fossil beds 14:46, 10 February 2019 (UTC)


How's things faring over there these days? Oxyaena Harass 02:46, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

Welcome back[edit]

Long time no see, Dev. Oxyaena Harass 08:49, 2 September 2020 (UTC)

Thanks, Oxy! I hope you are doing well! --Only Sort of Dumb 08:51, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
You as well. Contact me on Discord if you want to talk and catch up I guess. Oxyaena Harass 12:48, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
I am actually not sure how to contact you on discord as you are not under my previous contacts list, but as I have your attention do you mind helping me out a bit on the Hyperianism page? I think it would benefit from having some images and what not and as you can probably tell I don't entirely know all the script commands for the site --Only Sort of Dumb 01:09, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
Somehow I must've missed this. I'm sorry. What is your Discord username and ID? Figure it's long since due we catch up. As I'm sure you are aware I've matured considerably since I was an idiot teenager on ratcord. I've also radicalized a lot, I'm probably more radical than you in some ways lol :p. Oxyaena Harass 06:59, 26 March 2021 (UTC)
I am not really on ratcord and or any casual discussion discords anymore. I don't really want to post my discord ID on here, but I hope you are doing well. I am a bit busy with uni as this is my last semester before I have my degree. -- Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 01:18, 29 March 2021 (UTC)

Your signature[edit]

Could you go into preferences and untick “sign exactly as shown”? Currently your signature doesn’t link back to your account in any way, and is the same colour as normal text (making it harder to tell when comments end and begin). Christopher (talk) 22:25, 24 March 2021 (UTC)

yes, sorry I didn't know that was a thing I can do from preferences. I hope you can excuse my ignorance here - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 23:56, 24 March 2021 (UTC)


Why the last comment of your on the Saloon Bar? Why jump to conclusions about intent and personality so quickly? My preceeding comments were a bit dry since I'd lost my more detailed one to an edit conflict and wasn't too enthusiastic about retyping it on my mobile again, but I don't think it was that bad. Was it the mention about (part of some of) the US culture? Yes, I'm actually familiar with the concept of (american) food deserts, I'd read that wiki article before. I hope you understand we don't all share the same cultural references. I'm exposed to american culture every day, so I might understand a little of it. I know more about the history of the democratic and republican parties than about my own country's parties (slight groan). I'm not so sure you're exposed to my own, which is not your fault anyway.

No, I don't believe in pulling yourself up by your shoelaces, especially when you (generic you) have no shoes. I also don't believe that we should accept we have no agency and let ourselves lapse into learned helplessness. In any event, no hard feelings on this side, I don't think those help. And g'morning to you, BTW! UninspiringNickname (talk) 14:01, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

I don't particularly like your attitude if I am going to be honest. I think it may be a genuine blindspot for you, but you seem to over-rely on anecdotal information and personal experience lacking any sort of sociological perspective to which you won't even acknowledge. You seem also to struggle to frame an issue in a way without making it about yourself. That's not exemplifying any sort of epistemic virtue or epistemic responsibility. I appreciate people who choose to think critically about their own beliefs as best as they are able with means at their disposal and acknowledge nuance where nuance is present. You are simply not displaying that, like why does it matter if you are vegetarian and have been for 10 years? What purpose does any of that have to the discussion? You missed what the actual point of the analogy was, and that does not speak favourably to your ability to engage in good faith. My criticism was not even about you thinking people can "pull themselves up by their shoelaces". I can give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you lack the ability to comprehend my argumentation but that does not speak particularly flattering to you, and I genuinely think you are more intelligent than that. Your intentions just do not seem to be in a good place from the outset. Either you genuinely don't get it, or you just don't care. You seem way more focused on what I think about you than whether or not fatphobia is real - that would entail you are responding to my arguments in bad faith. - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 01:38, 29 March 2021 (UTC)
