I WILL MILDY DISCOMFORT YOU[edit]

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.

When adding more than one news item to WIGO, always add vote-thingies in DESCENDING order.

Before:

102 101

After:

104 103 102 101

Otherwise

103 104 102 101

Editor: "hmm, lemme add this"

104 103 104 102 101

Editor: "dafuq? Why are votes screwed up?"

Why did you revert me?[edit]

Why did you revert many of my edits, even after I started a talk page discussion before even making them? Zionist Goy (talk) 22:52, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

I don't always have time for leaisure and RW is currently low on my list of activities. Regardless, I didn't revert many of this user's edits, I reverted 3; one on Stalin, one on BLM, and one on Whataboutery. This user only started a discussion on the BLM page and reverted two well sourced sections (BDS support by BLM and Israeli apologia on whataboutery).--Owlman (talk) (mail) 23:59, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

We need your help liberating the space station![edit]

Or something. What I meant to say is: You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. ~ 03:07, 30 July 2017 (UTC)

You Make Me Sad[edit]

I'm sorry to see you go. You're a good editor, and we really need more people like you here. All the best, RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:22, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

I see you are running for moderator[edit]

Just recently joined, and apparently I've run afoul of views that, if my talk page is an indication, mean I'm considered "insane" here and subject to this thingie called a "vandal bin." Before I reach a conclusion about the lay of the land here I thought I'd survey the positions of those who seem to have some..."cred." This isn't a biggie site, but a few friends had said it is worth a look-see. Not sure I agree, but willing to consider. I doubt my background (academic, retired) would be conducive after seeing what got me -- I guess it's called "vandalized binned" -- stopped from contributing. But I'm asking if any are willing to opine. I've never before been treated like a troll and taken aback. [A message says I can't post again for 19 minutes. I'll do that then and be back again in a week or so to see if there are people here who are reasonable, as opposed to those who silence and call "insane" those with whom they disagree.]--Tea Sagan (talk) 05:32, 4 August 2017 (UTC)

...@Tea SaganI am trying to be reasonable. RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:36, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
@Tea Sagan Owlman was nominated for a position on the board of trustees, not mod. He declined due to lack of activity. Christopher (talk) 06:15, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
OK. Just trying to locate whoever is in charge of following my attempts to make reasonable contributions and weirdly getting called "insane" and put in this bin thing where I can only post every 30 minutes. Not sure how it works here, but surely, people aren't just wed to insistence on one point of view absent competing evidence? I got pulled into political stuff b/c I didn't realize how much straight political entries are here -- I sort of thought this was just an anti-woo site.--Tea Sagan (talk) 06:34, 4 August 2017 (UTC)
