French horn[edit]

Heh. I watch French hornWikipedia's W.svg on The Other Wiki. Just recently, after a bit of teapot tempestuousness, it was moved to that title, previously being named something like "Horn (instrument)". I hope you like popcorn ;) Alec Sanderson (talk) 13:16, 15 March 2015 (UTC)

Well, it would appear that I have been smacked with the facthammer of Wikipeds and Bicholim Conflicts. However, I would love some popcorn, and on a more serious note, well, point taken. PacWalker (talk) 13:24, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Not trying to make any kind of serious point... that made for some minor drama (hence the popcorn) on the English wikipedia. Looking at the other-language articles, I see you're right; it is mostly just variations on "horn" or "waldhorn" with the Scots Gaelic article being "Sassenach horn." That means "English", or those loathesome krauts Saxons from south of Hadrian's wall. It can be mildly pejorative, or medium, or hot, depending on context.
Never knew about the Bicholim conflict... inn-teresting. Alec Sanderson (talk) 13:47, 15 March 2015 (UTC)
Well huh. I guess the Scotsmen did the same thing the English did... very interesting. And do they make buffalo Sassenach? PacWalker (talk) 05:34, 22 March 2015 (UTC)

Death Threats?[edit]

I feel threatened by the notion that good faith is somehow involved with suicide, I'm considered a left wing liberal on the political spectrum regarding gay rights and such however I believe there is a hidden agenda on the lines of the occult trying to destroy society. User:Tyrasian

What specific nonfederal entity did I associate with the lincoln cent?[edit]

You vandalized my article with a reference to a coinage rule:

"(c) any other nonfederal entity, person, activity, product, or service."

What specific "nonfederal entity, person, activity, product, or service" do you allege I associated with the Lincoln cent?LogicMaster777 (talk) 09:36, 10 April 2015 (UTC)

You associated the federal gov't with a smattering of alleged deities; using an image of circulating coinage to do so appears to be verboten. PacWalker 13:04, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
So yes, I guess I "vandalised" your "article"... in order to drag it something resembling accord with the law. PacWalker 13:46, 10 April 2015 (UTC)
My article mentions several religious deities. It also mentions coins. That does not mean it is associating the coins with a religious deity. I notice although I asked which specific deity you think it is that I specifically associated with that specific coin, you have not actually provided a responsive answer to my inquiry - You still haven't cited an example of a specific deity which you claim I specifically associated with the coin. Do you even know? Perhaps you didn't comprehend the material in the article. That's not a reason to vandalize. Refrain from this sort of mischief in the future if you cannot articulate a specific example of the rule you claim I broke - remember libel is illegal and actionable.LogicMaster777 (talk) 05:55, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Also, the Painting you deleted is a product of the Federal Government, which means it is automatically public domain. Please find a more productive activity than vandalizing my work such as perhaps educating yourself on the copyright laws.LogicMaster777 (talk) 06:05, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Please find a more productive activity than writing some nonsensical essay nobody here wants to read, such as doing nothing. PacWalker 01:43, 12 April 2015 (UTC)
PacWalker Doesn't understand it ≠ nonsense. If reading the fact-based, evidence based article causes you such cognitive dissonance and religious panic, you aren't obligated to read it. But please do not vandalize the presentation of evidence to further your religious denialism and try to conduct yourself as a rational adult in the future. My theory is fully falsifiable so you are more than welcome to present whatever reasoned evidence you have to support a counter-theory and to do so from a rationalist pov using whatever facts and evidence you think support your counter-theory(if you think there are any). Thanks. Have a nice night.LogicMaster777 (talk) 03:31, 13 April 2015 (UTC)

Ban Everyone? Shit Yeah[edit]

Because, really, FCP taking what should have been a simple discussion in the bar and adding that and all of the clusterfucky bullshit and putting it in the coop and THEN voting and THEN decided votes should be invalidated and started over and THEN issuing a notification in the cocksucking bar to come to the motherfucking coop and revote and debate AGAIN is fucking bullshit annoyance. Thinking over it has pushed me into "I like to shoot people in the face." territory, because it's goddamn normal for me when I get irritated by asshat cockmonglers. If FCP had done that to a debate in my own house, I'd rip off his fucking arm, beat him to death with it, set him on fucking fire, and then resurrect him to put it all back to normal. WITH BURNED SKIN. Why? BECAUSE FUCKING BEERS, STEERS, AND QUEERS, that's why. Fucking Texas.

Apparently you DO understand the copyright laws[edit]

But products of the federal government such as the Lincoln Memorial are what is called "public domain". In other words, it's not copyright protected. So please try to find a better use of your time than trying to vandalize evidence simply because it causes cognitive dissonance with your religious beliefs. Sorry your irrational faith based belief system has no evidence and that must be rather uncomfortable for you, but please try to refrain from vandalizing my work because the evidence presented to support my falsifiable, evidence-based theory makes you uncomfortable and causes you cognitive dissonance. Thanks. If it makes your denialism easier, you don't have to read the article or try to understand it but don't let your lack of understanding lead you to vandalize the evidence.LogicMaster777 (talk) 06:24, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Show me where in the lawbooks it says this. Because the things the military develops are most definitely not public domain. CorruptUser (talk) 06:27, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Man, it's astonishing seeing someone so clueless act this condescending. (talk) 06:33, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Where in the law books it says this. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 15:36, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
Military artifacts may be kept from the public domain by being treated something like trade secrets. There is also the difficulty of reproducing them with the means available to civilians. That said, makers of sewing machines and typewriters were pressed into manufacturing small-arms (rifles, carbines, and pistols) during the unpleasantness of the 1940s.
If anyone wants to evaluate LM777's cluelessness, here is a data point, and the context in which it sits. Note well, the image shows a toddler about to stuff sand in his own mouth. As for condescension, this picture of Willy Wonka (hosted by was offered in the same context, by the same logic abuser. MaillardFillmore (talk) 16:40, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

What I referenced with regard to circulating currency: For clarity, this image of the coin was used in arguing that the federal gov't is associated with some deity whose second coming was Lincoln, contrary to 2c of these policies. PacWalker 21:09, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

In other words, you can't copy money willy nilly. PacWalker 21:10, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
As to your picture of the Lincoln Memorial et al., you claimed fair use, which is a term ONLY applicable to copyrighted works. If you want to upload something with correct license/fair use/PD claims, go ahead. PacWalker 21:13, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
And I don't give a fuck WHICH deity; any non-federal entity is a non-federal entity, and no deities happen to be federal entities. PacWalker 23:28, 11 April 2015 (UTC)

Hi, PacWalker. I suggest you ease up on the contributions to the Viharo deletion page (and to his silly essay too, for that matter); Troll and all that jazz. I might add my vote to the keepers this weekend, but it seems that Viharo gets off on all his whining and persecution complexing, so I'll try to resist my urge to add snarky comments to his idiocy.

Hey there. I noticed that you undid my edits to the rape page in the spirit of both fluency and accuracy, so I was wondering what it was that you opposed in my edits, so that I can understand where you felt I went wrong. Thanks.PrinceMuqi (talk) 17:54, 26 April 2015 (UTC)

Lack of both clarity and accuracy, that's what. For example, what are these serious flaws you allege, and why do you assert that these two studies are in conflict, when the latter figure is a rate of victimisation per annum, as opposed to a total rate of victimisation at any point?

What the fuck man? A BoN's first edit is to shit up a page and you don't trust my reason for blocking?—Ryūlóng (琉竜) 06:22, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Obvious answer: no. And one redlink is hardly epic upshitting; I've done worse while perfectly sober and serious. WalkerWalkerWalker 06:24, 16 May 2015 (UTC)

Man, do not be a dick about doxxing. Really. --Castaigne (talk) 04:32, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

I don't care if you're for doxxing - I'm in favor of it as a weapon, personally - but the rules are, don't do it here. The RW Foundation says no. Their site, their rules. So let's not, eh? --Castaigne (talk) 04:38, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Can I have that in writing? WalkerWalkerWalker 04:43, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Can I have this not in writing? WalkerWalkerWalker 04:44, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
-puts on the tattered remains of my mod hat- We don't do doxxing, but being a dick about it isn't going to fly either. -puts n the mob hat- The mob decided we don't do doxxing and being a dick about it is not ok either. There, three different authorities on RW saying "no" to doxxing AND being a dick about it! Good enough?--Miekal 04:54, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

The truth can be used in harmful ways. That it's the truth doesn't absolve the harm. Why are you trying to defend doxxing? (talk) 04:42, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

You're conflating sharing someone's name with actually harming them using that info. Catch the difference? WalkerWalkerWalker 04:43, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Nope, I'm not. If as part of a harrassment campaign people release all sorts of personal information about you to the rest of the world, that can be plenty harmful in itself already. If you don't care that personal information about you is disseminated publically, that's your good right, but that doesn't mean others will or should feel the same way. (talk) 04:50, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
So this is simply a matter of people feeling that certain information about them is bad. If I dislike a review of my concert, b'bye harassment? WalkerWalkerWalker 04:52, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
How is a review of a concert an apt analogy to personal information? Are you subtly making a nothing to hide argument? (talk) 04:55, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
My name is public record, with a little digging you could easily find it. This does not mean i give you right to go bandying it around here, as I've not posted my name here. how is that hard to understand -I have chosen to not reveal the information-, so you have no right to post it--Miekal 04:57, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
What gives me right to post the Caliph's former name, then? Or the Prime Minister's address? Anything other than it being public knowledge? WalkerWalkerWalker 05:02, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
A well known address of a political leader is not doxxing.--Miekal 05:07, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Why? Is there some actual distinction between public and (!)private figures? Are they endowed with separate non-rights? WalkerWalkerWalker 05:11, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
No, but 10 downing street is not being withheld. It's an open fact. Again - if the information has not been freely given (in other words, you had to put even minimal work of finding me in a phone book), it's doxxing and you shouldn't be posting it.--Miekal 05:14, 21 June 2015 (UTC)

For your signature, why not force the font colour to be dark blue for the first link, blue for the second, and light blue for the third? It would look pretty. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Floof!~) 12:26, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

It looks weird fading in. Since the left side would be read right after the message, it makes sense to start off with the darkest colour. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Floof!~) 17:33, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

Christian = proper noun?[edit]

Uhm, it's an adjective not a noun. The reason it's capitalized is because English likes to do that with religions and their associated adjectives. Many languages don't do this, actually. (talk) 06:25, 24 August 42015 AQD (UTC)

Well, it can be a noun (i.e. a Christian), though yes the usage that was in question was as an adjective. I missed that at first. WalkerWalkerWalker 06:28, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
"Christian" as a noun is a nominalized adjective, not a proper noun (unless we're talking about someone named Christian). (talk) 06:31, 24 August 42015 AQD (UTC)
But if it's a nominalization of a proper adjective isn't it a proper noun, just like say "a Russian"? Or is neither properly speaking proper or... wah my head hurts. WalkerWalkerWalker 06:34, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
"Proper adjective" isn't a proper linguistic categorization. It might be used informally in languages where adjectives derived from a proper noun ("Jesus Christ", "Christianity"[✝]) retain their capital letter. Many languages don't follow this convention, actually. (talk) 06:47, 24 August 42015 AQD (UTC)
...oh. I blame my Alabama schooling. :P WalkerWalkerWalker 06:51, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh, and if you can put "a(n)" in front of it, that tends to mean it's not a proper noun. (talk) 06:52, 24 August 42015 AQD (UTC)
So... a Canuck... I hate English. WalkerWalkerWalker 06:54, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, demonyms aren't proper nouns. (talk) 07:11, 24 August 42015 AQD (UTC)

As I discovered back when I had time to do Techie things for this site, unless you send a message to "site-wide urgent," people will only see intercom messages if they somehow added themselves to that newsgroup. Thus, your message to "general site news" might be being seen by my Reckless Noise Symphony account, Nx, and nobody else. Gooniepunk (talk) 09:47, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Wait that's who you are? WalkerWalkerWalker 09:49, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
And well I knew that was how it worked but I have only the powers of a mortal at my disposal and hoped that group might have some peoples. WalkerWalkerWalker 09:50, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
I don't think it requires anything above Sysop to do (I might be wrong), but let me search through the pages where, I think, Nutty Roux and I talked about it some time ago and I'll get back to you about how to use and change the intercom settings. Gooniepunk (talk) 09:57, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Ah yes, here are the instructions I wrote. That fucking program always throws people for a bind and, IIRC< it took me 2 days straight of poking it to figure out how to work it properly. You can go ahead and re-send your message to "Site-wide" after you follow those simple configuration steps. Hope this helped. Gooniepunk (talk) 10:03, 30 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh dear, it looks like you do, in fact, need somebody with Tech or Moderator powers to send it to Site-Wide. I was going to re-send it myself, but since I have relinquished my Tech powers, I no longer have the ability to send it to Site-Wide. Gooniepunk (talk) 10:07, 30 August 2015 (UTC)

Since the draft was in his userpage, is it really that odd that she lets him know it's finished and is moving towards implementation in mainspace?
