dude[edit]

what's with all the random all caps joke blocks.--Miekal 01:43, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Nothing really. I only do short blocks, and sysops do friendly blocks from time to time. But I admit, I may have went a little overboard with stuff like "GOD SEDUCED MARY" or "2015 WILL BE THE YEAR OF THE APOCALYPSE!!!!".--Palaeonictis (talk) 17:30, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Nice[edit]

Or rather, ᵑǃais! I enjoyed your pseudo-religious ramblings, but do you have anything which more closely resembles Yoruba or Mayan material? Say, a poem about Tlazolteotl or a goddess, with Sapphic innuendos (saphism is a must)? BobRoss (talk) 23:50, 23 September 2018 (UTC)

Yes.--Palaeonictis (talk) 11:42, 25 September 2018 (UTC)
Or rather, I can cook something up from the cesspit I call a mind, but I`m not terribly familiar (read: not at all) with Yoruban mythology, and isn't Tlazolteotl Nahuatl rather than Mayan?--Palaeonictis (talk) 09:14, 5 October 2018 (UTC)
Sorry I took 2 months and 28 days to harass you Don Juan, I've been busy destroying reputations. Yes Tlazolteotl is Nahuatl, I got mixed up. Instead of Yoruban mythology, just use anything you're familiar with. Mí má kȍhà hńg gǀȕì ō ǁȁhìn-ā ō hȁ ō gǀè gù ǀxūúnnu. (talk) 22:34, 31 December 2018 (UTC)
@BobRoss Good, Bob, I`m most familiar with American Indian and Germanic mythologies, although the placeholder category "American Indian mythology" is quite a broad brush, considering that the demonym "American Indian" is comprised of hundreds of different, unrelated tribes that are often as far apart from each other as the Chinese are to the English (well, before the days of globalization anyways), one wouldn't place the Haudenosaunee together with the various Apachean tribes, right? The ethnonym of "Germanic" is also a broad brush, but not nearly as big as "American Indian," and the Germanic peoples are a valid ethnolinguistic group, comprised of a set of ancient, medieval, and modern day peoples each characterized by a shared usage of the Germanic languages and cultural elements unique to the Germanic-speaking peoples, such as the Norse gods replacing the Roman gods as the names of the week, except for Saturday anyways. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 00:52, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
I agree, try comparing Arapaho to Navajo. One of my all time favourite Indian myths would be that of Bakhbakwalanooksiwey. Mí má kȍhà hńg gǀȕì ō ǁȁhìn-ā ō hȁ ō gǀè gù ǀxūúnnu. (talk) 05:21, 1 January 2019 (UTC)
Anything involving Coyote would be bring a smile to my face. But I'll follow your suggestion, instead.. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 15:07, 1 January 2019 (UTC)

Sysop[edit]

Hello Don Juan,

Thank you for making me a Sysop.Doublethink (talk) 21:39, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

You're welcome.--Don Juan (talk) 21:41, 27 November 2018 (UTC)

Blocking[edit]

You should not infinitely block or vandal bin IPs. See RationalWiki:Blocking_policy#Vandalbinning. CowHouse (talk) 09:44, 28 November 2018 (UTC)

Even spammers?--Don Juan (talk) 09:46, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
"Spambots can be blocked for up to 3 months, but sysops should only block if there is repeated spamming from an IP address". You can block an IP spammer for a few days, and if they spam again block them for up to 3 months. CowHouse (talk) 09:59, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
Okay, got it. I had seen other sysops doing so and thought it was now okay. My mistake.--Don Juan (talk) 10:17, 28 November 2018 (UTC)
I just thought I'd check if I made a mistake. You blocked this IP recently but there have been no edits since May 2018. Am I missing something? CowHouse (talk) 13:43, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
As far as I`m aware you made a mistake. Somehow the IP reuploaded a spam page already deleted, so I blocked them. Maybe the logs are glitching out or something. Anyways, I see fit that I reblock the IP, pending approval of the mob of course.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 13:46, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Why is there nothing under deleted user contributions? CowHouse (talk) 13:56, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
I have no clue. Perhaps I`m just insane.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 13:57, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Seems like there was a mistake, it was actually this IP. It recreated the spam page that was created by the first IP in May. --RWRW (talk) 14:20, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
Ah, thank you, I'll see to it that the IP gets blocked right away.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:21, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
@RWRW Apparently you've already blocked the turd. Good, I'd hate to be the only one doing maintenance around here (wink wink, nudge nudge).--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:23, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
He would have gotten away with it too, if it weren't for meddling Sysops. --RWRW (talk) 14:25, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
@RWRW Considering that he uploaded an obscure piece of spam, I`m reasonably confident it's the same guy. Anyways, sincerely, thank you for pointing out the mistake, I was starting to worry if I was going insane or not.--Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:29, 10 December 2018 (UTC)
I expect this IP spamming on the page of an unrelated IP trick is especially worked out to confuse us. — Dysk (contribs) 16:01, 10 December 2018 (UTC)

OOLON!!! (fiter 55)[edit]

WTF with the "Oolon" filter? You configured it to block and remove all userrights on any account creation without warning! — Dysk (contribs) 16:27, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

My mistake, my wiki-skills are rusty, I meant it to block any username containing the name "Oolon". I'll reconfigure it so it doesn't fuck up like that again.--Don Juan (talk) 16:29, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Ah right, basically copying filter 54 is the solution. You forgot to give it anything to match against, so by default it was matching everything. — Dysk (contribs) 16:36, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
You have my thanks.--Don Juan (talk) 16:37, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Just out of interest, why are we blocking oolon accounts? — Dysk (contribs) 16:39, 30 November 2018 (UTC)
Because a user blocked with a permaban keeps creating new sock accounts to avoid that permaban, so I figured that we should just cut this Gordian Knot, easiest solution to the problem.--Don Juan (talk) 18:22, 30 November 2018 (UTC)

New users[edit]

It's best not to welcome new users until they make themselves known by at least an initial edit or two (e.g., User:Holocaust deniers are stupid). Bongolian (talk) 04:11, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Got it.--Don Juan (talk) 11:56, 6 December 2018 (UTC)

Swearing[edit]

When I use words like "frag(ger)", "slag(ging)", or "flippin" I actually am swearing. If you want I can link the books that I took them from. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 23:17, 14 December 2018 (UTC)

Flipping might be one of those words that are no longer regarded as "profanity" among the eyes of today's society, sort of like the word "crap", once regarded as an expletive, but not so much anymore. I could get away with saying it in elementary school, and that's saying something. If anything, what you mean is that you're using euphemisms for harsher swear words, but not actually using any swear words themselves, so it might still be swearing, but saying "flipping" instead of "fucking" counts as using a euphemism, instead of using a cuss word. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 23:58, 14 December 2018 (UTC)
slag is a pretty common swear word in uk. its synonymous with slut. what is the definition you using? AMassiveGay (talk) 00:42, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
CUNT. FECK. ARSE. GOIRLS. --MtDBogan 00:54, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
thats just rude AMassiveGay (talk) 01:01, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@AMassiveGay To be honest I rarely use "slag(ger)/(ging)", partly because I don't know what they mean outside of brief usage in Shadowrun novels, sourcebooks (commentary by fictional characters in the sourcesbooks to be exact), and video games (context is not always there with swearing in Shadowrun). @Don Juan As I said before, I'm not using them as euphemisms, I'm using them as swearwords in and of themselves. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:40, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
thems not proper swears if they dont mean anything, or no one knows what they mean. it would be like having to explain a joke AMassiveGay (talk) 02:04, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
@AMassiveGay I wasn't aware of that, I was basing my definition of "swear words" based off of American profanity. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 08:30, 15 December 2018 (UTC)
american swears are rubbish, and they are mostly the same as ours. take cunt for instance even now i am surprised when people take umbrage at it - its still generally considered bad mind, it just does not have that specific application that riles folk. you'd get a slap from ya mother though. and when americans use english swear words - bollocks and wanker specifically. sets my teeth on edge. you just dont say them right. its just weird. any other nation, any other accent, no problem. almost adorable with french accent. american? stop it. AMassiveGay (talk) 01:03, 16 December 2018 (UTC)
A bit of a prejudice against Americans going on now? The reason I suspect that you feel that way is because Americans tend to use those swears in jest, since our cussing vocabulary, while containing a large amount of overlap with yours, doesn't contain everything that the Brits' does, and vice versa. Compare "bollocks" with "bullshit". Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 14:05, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Spam or legit?

Doesn't seem to match the usual pattern. — Dysk (contribs) 00:16, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

@Dysklyver I'd recommend we be cautious about it, don't be too hasty to block him, but keep an eye on him just in case. He did mention his (supposed) real name, so one of us will have to investigate further to see if it's legit or not. The question is, which one of us will? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 11:00, 16 December 2018 (UTC)

Ninja[edit]

So what can RW assassins do as well (as the term is not on the list) over and above ninjas? Anna Livia (talk) 17:59, 17 December 2018 (UTC)

They have super secret pirate powers. Its very secret. — Dysk (contribs) 18:03, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Only a RW Templar would dare to question the almighty power of the RW Assassins. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 18:29, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
What are RW Templars when they are at home (and do they have access to the supposed lost treasures of the Templars?)?
As they do not appear on the User group rights page 'just asking.' Anna Livia (talk) 19:41, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
If you want access to such privileged information you'll have to contact the Grand Master of the RW Templars. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 19:50, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
As you were contemplating my inclusion in the RWA, I am, reasonably, curious. Anna Livia (talk) 00:04, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
You'd have to undergo the initiation process, a grueling task that may task the soul, body, and mind. Are you up to the task? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 00:11, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Providing it does not interfere with other activities in the wikiverse and elsewhere in the user-contributory-verse, my limited interest in 'the technicalities of wikis', automatic correction of minor mistakes in other users' contributions to talk pages, Real Life, and 'being "more patient" than some fringe contributors to RW who do not like their views challenged.' Anna Livia (talk) 13:04, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
You really think that such a thing as the RW Assassins actually exists? It was a joke. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 16:23, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Yes for the sake of clarity, there are no pirate or assassin user-groups... yet. — Dysk (contribs) 16:47, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

Be careful of what you mention. Anna Livia (talk) 18:31, 18 December 2018 (UTC)

So what does it involve - given that I am 'somewhat miffed' by the behaviour of several IPs. Anna Livia (talk) 11:47, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Are you interested in becoming a tech? Do you have any coding experience? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 11:49, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
No to both - my skills are elsewhere. Besides talk page activity (in some areas) is getting to the point where it is no longer appropriate to access the website on public terminals. Anna Livia (talk) 12:13, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
So you're not interested in RW anymore? Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 12:24, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
I do have my home computer - and RW has always been merely one component: so more 'less activity.' Anna Livia (talk) 13:07, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
I can actually relate to you on that. RW is only one part of my online activity as well, and historically I've never been nearly as active here as I have been over the past month or so. Ɖøn Ĵuan (talk) 13:11, 19 December 2018 (UTC)
Why did you delete the Dove Rose Smith article? It was a reliable source. 2Cute4U (talk) 14:11, 27 December 2018 (UTC)

Stoopid categories[edit]

Against Fascism[edit]

Hi @Don Juan, I was wondering if you could think about paroling @Against Fascism. He might be a troll but it also seems like he could do some good. I would also like to ask him about his bar story. Sorry for bothering you. Tabula Rasa (talk) 07:15, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

@Tabula Rasa Binning someone isn't the same as blocking them, it merely restricts their editing rate to one edit every thirty minutes or so. Ɖøn Ĵuan Harass 08:34, 31 December 2018 (UTC)

YOU failed the convington test[edit]

The subsequent "clarifications" were all bullshit smokescreens. They were virulently racist to someone who had done nothing to them, in accordance with years of substantiating evidence that the school has a culture from administration-down of doing really shitty bigoted stuff.

I think that, as a matter of principle, mops should be distributed as soon as the user has demonstrated they actually are sane, or at least not destructive.

Seems like you've reached a level of minor notoriety on Conservapedia: you're on their main page as of yesterday.[1] Conservapedia:Conservative has issued an ill-conceived challenge to you.[2] Bongolian (talk) 19:29, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

Looks like they read a blog post of yours. Template:Emoji — Dysk (contribs) 19:39, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

What's the deal with Sovereigntist? Which ban evasion are you referring to? I removed their rights today because of your claim. Advise if you think otherwise. Bongolian (talk) 02:07, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

I thought he was Mike. You should probably re-sysop him, still he's fishy. Oxyaena Harass 02:10, 21 April 2019 (UTC)

Ken and debate. We win, he lost.[edit]

If he wants to debate either he comes here or you go there. Seriously man, you win because his lack of spine. I’ve won every debate I’ve ever had with Ken because of his lack of machismo. Ken can’t argue on an equal playing field? He loses. You win. Acei9 10:44, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

@Ace McWicked Nice, he hasn't even put up any gloating response to me on Conservapedia yet, if ever. What a fucking joke. Oxyaena Harass 10:48, 22 April 2019 (UTC)
we’ve already beaten him in debate by his refusal to do so. He loses. Acei9 21:30, 22 April 2019 (UTC)

@Matty the Damned Is that Scots? Oxyaena Harass 22:18, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
Gaeilge (Irish) but I believe it's the same in Scots Gaelic. They are generally considered mutually intelligible. "Scots" is actually a dialect descended from Middle English ("do ye no ken?) and not related to either Irish or Scots Gaelic. --MtDBogan 22:36, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
Well, not closely anyways, both Scots and Gaelic are Indo-European languages. Oxyaena Harass 22:45, 27 April 2019 (UTC)
Indeed. I should've been more precise. English (and by derivation Scots English) are Indo-European from the Germanic group, whereas Irish, Scots Gaelic and Manx are Indo European from the Celtic (Goidelic) group. The other branch in the Celtic group is the Brythonic which encompasses Welsh, Cornish and Breton. --MtDBogan 03:16, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
@Matty the Damned That reminds me, it's unlikely that Gaulish or CeltiberianWikipedia's W.svg were part of either the Goidelic or Brythonic group, it's truly sobering to realize the Celtic languages and peoples we have now are just the mere ghosts of what was once a grand ethnolinguistic group of people, a lot of knowledge has been lost with their passing, and for linguistics it's unlikely we can ever get as close to reconstructing Proto-CelticWikipedia's W.svg as we have Proto-Indo-European simply because so much of the Celtic language base has been lost to history. Welp. Oxyaena Harass 03:25, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
Oh yeah, I'm aware that much of the ethno-linguistic classification is quite hit and miss, a ham-fisted attempt to make sense of what had avoided being lost in the mists of time. --MtDBogan 03:48, 28 April 2019 (UTC)
It's the best we can do, and hey, for so much being lost you have to give credit to linguists, historians, and archaeologists for reconstructing what we do know, adding to our (admittedly limited) reservoir of knowledge about the Celts. Oxyaena Harass 07:28, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Trying to make new page[edit]

I was trying to make a draft "The Progressive Voice", but it won't let me make new pages. Do you know what's going on? Gynocentrism Watch (talk) 00:10, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

@Ambition of Truth It was prevented by an edit filter; 1 & 2. I made changes to filter 58 to deal with the issue so if you try again you will be fine. I can get your page text back from the database if you need it. — Dysk (contribs) 12:09, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
I'd appreciate that, as I put a lot there and had to sift through an hour's worth of livestream to post some quotes. Gynocentrism Watch (talk) 13:05, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
No worries, see Draft:The Progressive Voice. — Dysk (contribs) 13:13, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Tried publishing the page, but it still won't let me. Can someone prevent people from making it so I can't create pages? Gynocentrism Watch (talk) 13:28, 29 April 2019 (UTC)
Well I mean to publish the page you need to move the draft to mainspace. — Dysk (contribs) 13:32, 29 April 2019 (UTC)

How does "ninja mode" work exactly?[edit]

Hi, I have noticed that you recently trusted me with the right of "ninja". I'm curious: How exactly do you do this ninja thing (as in, becoming a bot so that you can quickly change categories or section titles)? Thanks. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSteal my ideas 17:28, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

It doesn't do jobs quickly but I think it hides your edits from the recent changes so it doesn't clog up your maintenance work (such as adding categories repeatedly). Bots, however, actually do quick, automatic work, but requires you know some script and programming knowledge. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 17:32, 6 May 2019 (UTC)

What are we, three?[edit]

This is a reference to this. I disclosed my association with Conservapedia both on the AfD and on my user page, ding dong. Also, @Bongolian, who are you proposing that I am doxing? Blocking me for that for no reason while an active AfD at Wikipedia links here stating that I am not banned is libelous you know... I'd sure like to know who I am doxing. (Also, this account is not "ban evasion" as it existed long before this sham of a block, and sockpuppetry in itself is not against RW rules). Conspirate (talk) 03:28, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

I didn't see you reference it on the deletion page. Also Bongolian's shit should go on his talk page, I don't want mine being the scene of a flame war, especially when it means I'll get three thousand notifications, I have OCD. Dr. Ox quack specialist 03:32, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

It's AWARD time![edit]

For everything you've done here since your triumphant return as El burlador de Sevilla (my university dissertation was on the Don Juan legend), you have been awarded Spud's Star Prize.

Indef block[edit]

I see you indef blocked User:B-loved genius and called them a Nazi for vandalising the Noah Carl article. The RationalWiki:Blocking policy suggests that such actions should only result in a short block. Also, I don't think you can conclude they're a Nazi just because they claim that Noah Carl is not a racist and it's an issue of academic freedom. Technically they're wrong that it's an issue of academic freedom because no-one really gets tenure in the UK any more, and in any case Carl wouldn't have had it. But being wrong doesn't make someone a Nazi. --Greenrd (talk) 17:23, 18 May 2019 (UTC)

Do not edit war[edit]

While this wasn't discussed much in the coop case, do not edit war. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 21:02, 3 June 2019 (UTC)

FYI[edit]

You should fucking bail on this place. You don't know me and I don't know you, but I was randomly tipped off to that coop case with Nerd because I was curious to see what bone-headed bullshit he was up to recently, and wow. That so few people here are willing to call out that kind of false equivalency when it comes to AOC being a "racist" is irritating to the fucking nine, but it's the norm for this place. Nerd stupidity level bullshit (and you're lucky to deal with that, the more common level bullshit is Ariel's kind of idiocy) whether it's being stubborn in the face of evidence or the kind of edit warring on tone policing or deliberately dragging out small issues everyone understands, it's not a fluke, it's a goddamn feature. I know it's hard to want to bite the bullet and run, especially when a total stranger is advising you, but yeah, I ignored the red flags for months and kept on hoping for something better, only to be disappointed that much harder. There's a few good people here, but even the most vocal ones in calling out what happens here on a regular basis do not go nearly far enough.

Also, lol@Mario calling you out for edit warring. RobShit aka Nobs, a Nazi in all but name harassed her to the point that he sent her a bunch of nasty ass emails and she called a coop case to rightfully get rid of his ass, only for everyone to throw her under the bus, because "we can't ban people because they believe in psycho bullshit like Pizzagate and QAnon." The guy even claimed that he was just joking and the people here ate it up. Trust me, if the higher-ups saying that coming down hard on right-wing bullshit is the same as Conservapedia in that coop case isn't enough to scare you off, then there's nothing that can be done. I wanted to think this place could be salvaged, but fuck me, it's a sinking ship! Even if all the hard work could produce something amazing, the constant stupidity permeating the site culture will always prevent it from being the fucking amazing place we all want it to be. James Earl Cash (talk) 06:54, 4 June 2019 (UTC)

Oxyaena's been here longer than you, and you're advising Oxyaena on this — that's nervy! Also your summary of the Nobs-LGM dispute is not accurate in so far as LGM accepted Nobs' apology and that ended it. Nobs is a nasty troll and should have been banned, so you're correct about that part. Bongolian (talk) 07:29, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
I mean, edit warring is bad, and I sent messages to other parties to not edit war. Nobs politely apologized, which was unexpected from him, and that was settled and I don't think I got any other nasty attacks since. But again, with Nerd having a pattern of acting contentious with his edits, I don't think he's really in bad faith either as he took the time to justify some his edits and has good contributions under my belt rather than be single-issue editors like some other editors I've established as dishonest (not you James Earl Cash but you sometimes push your edits way too much), and he acts polite on top of all of this. I generally assume character flaw rather than bad faith in this case. But that's the thing, even for more dishonest editors, it's really hard to get them to stop because they haven't broken any rules, really. I don't know your opinion on UnlicensedThinker on Saloon Bar, who got cooped a lot of times but was kept because he isn't breaking the rules, but I'm pretty sure you're also highly critical of how that handled too. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 17:46, 4 June 2019 (UTC)
