You should make a user page and fill it with whatever shit you like.𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 06:32, 9 January 2021 (UTC)


Thanks so much for your quick response to a troll. I was about to implement my very first block but found that you had already blocked them and when I then switched back to my talk page you had already fixed that, as well! I really appreciate it and am very impressed. --Bertrc (talk) 20:23, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, I was a bit confused at first when looking at the move log. But you dude are an bloody legend! And a hero Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 20:40, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
Thanks, if you notice anything that I did that screwed up something, feel free to correct... that was a massive amount of moves. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 21:00, 21 January 2021 (UTC)
+1! --Bertrc (talk) 21:10, 21 January 2021 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing out the new age woo bullshit[edit]

I didn't make that link to the video, and thank you that you did, it helped me to look through the garbage and not get consumed by it :)--WMS (talk) 23:21, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Not a problem. :) PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 23:38, 11 February 2021 (UTC)


Unclescrooge is trolling on the Chicken Coop. It's more than fine to revert it. Quoth the CC intro:

As a final note, if you think this page is a good tactic to apply in gaming the mob into doing your bidding, you may be shocked to see your post archived quite swiftly.

I think it falls squarely within "gaming the mob into doing your bidding" territory. Gangster Computer God (talk) 17:12, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

Wasn't an archiving and no other users had weighed in. He felt that the hiding of his WIGO was unjustified, we can take a minute to explain it to him. If you can't be bothered to do that then just leave it alone instead of edit warring-Hastur! (talk) 17:14, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
Sure, I was more going along with USHistoryAnalyzer's repeated rollback. Clearly other mods think this isn't a coup case and should be handled in All Things In Moderation. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 17:15, 12 May 2021 (UTC)
I'm very sure he's very interested in an explanation and isn't just trying to stir shit. Extremely sure, even. Gangster Computer God (talk) 17:20, 12 May 2021 (UTC)

You are hereby awarded this badge of honor for upsetting Unclescrooge. May the farce be with you.

And now you've unblocked him. Quite the irony, huh? GeeJayK (talk) 17:43, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

User:Starving artist[edit]

Hi, I just noticed that this user was already in the bin, I assumed that they were binned in error due to their username and that they should've been soft blocked instead as it appeared to be an account created for trolling purposes due to the username. Thanks. Harry Potter (talk) 17:18, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

I'd probably wait for something to happen, there's nothing inherently wrong with the term "starving artist"Wikipedia that I know of. Not sure why Gale5050 binned this user either, I don't see any history at all, and it seems strange to just bin on site for no reason. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 17:22, 26 May 2021 (UTC)
Fair point, I made a mistake though. Oops! Harry Potter (talk) 17:26, 26 May 2021 (UTC)

My response in the saloon[edit]

I hope it cleared up any misunderstandings that may have arisen. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:42, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Certainly did, thanks. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 17:00, 3 September 2021 (UTC)

Could you tell me when I post a link you don't like when you do revert[edit]

I did not know it was a "fake news / clickbait site", you could avoid us both struggling over one article for something this petty if you had told me right away. I am not aware of the customs of RationalWiki and what is deemed an accurate source or not. Is there another source of note I should be careful of? Since I don't want to unknowingly insert misinformation. Maybe not something as well known as Infowars, however, a source I probably should not take seriously. Senioritas (talk) 21:50, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

Generally speaking, my trust level of a user is not going to terribly high when one instantly shills for an obvious troll. Even the Britannica article you cited did not support your text. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 22:48, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

User:I love to master bait[edit]

Given the edit to Penis and the username, please block indef for inappropriate username. Clearly here in bad faith. --Andrew5 mobile (talk) 01:46, 24 October 2021 (UTC)


make this block permanent (talk) 20:24, 11 February 2022 (UTC)


Block people over edit warring. Especially if it's in good faith or other active members. Not cool.--Spoony (talk) 12:19, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Bullshit. Don't edit war. You were warned several times. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 12:35, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Calm down and and keep your finger off the trigger. I was not "warned several times". You're acting like someone who was just demoted yesterday and thinks they rule the world. It had 4 different people at least involved and I only got caught in the crossfire because I unblocked a BoN preemptively blocked. I could have easily chose to block you.--Spoony (talk) 12:41, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Again: Don't edit war. It's not that hard. And since you are sysop, any block is not a big deal. Don't pretend otherwise. If you wish to actually try and defend edit warring in front of mods, I'll be happy to raise a case in ATIM. Your behavior in my eyes frankly was unacceptable. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 12:55, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
If this is an issue that means so much to you, do it. The block was a big deal because I couldn't do anything about it, it's not like I can unblock myself. At the end of the day you were a part of the edit war. Don't take the high ground. Again, I could have easily blocked you. Don't block people because you disagree with them. Go to the talk page next time, don't block people to maintain an edit. Threatening the coop or ATIM will change nothing about the reality of what actually happened.--Spoony (talk) 12:59, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
You're a sysop. You can unblock yourself. What's the malfunction here? Queexchthonic murmurings 13:03, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
This is the page you need: [1] - it's a little hidden and not linked to from the block page. Queexchthonic murmurings 13:11, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Well shoot 9 hours of resentment and one petty argument later, there it is. Thanks--Spoony (talk) 13:12, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Don't lock articles just because you disagree with them[edit]

Dishonest, really.--Back2theroots34 (talk) 15:55, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Don't edit war. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 16:01, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Did you just "no u" me?--Back2theroots34 (talk) 16:11, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Not cool[edit]

Not cool promoting people over issues as ridiculous as this. But pretty used to the contemptful attitude this site bring it's less active users. When do I get my sysop status back?

There were like 2 other people before who cared enough to revert the edits. I would not personally do the same to someone who was in my position and for someone who immediately threatened ATIM you sure are overdue for it.--Spoony (talk) 23:36, 10 March 2022 (UTC)

Take it there. At this point I'm not even close to ready to giving your sysop status back. Try and find someone who is. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 23:39, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Thanks for showing me how it is. Good to know you took the issue so personally.--Spoony (talk) 23:41, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
"2 other people", one of them was you as an IP: [2]. And it isn't even the first article you've started a knuckle-headed edit war over this week. Queexchthonic murmurings 23:45, 10 March 2022 (UTC)
Not really. Check the article history again.--Spoony (talk) 00:36, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
You were the one who kept on adding that edit back in. If six different people are reverting the same edit, it's not them who are edit warring. Stop trying to pass the buck and take responsibility please. Plutocow (talk) 00:40, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
[[3]] Uhh at least be a little more honest first.--Spoony (talk) 00:42, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
Unless you're trying to tie this to a completely seperate edit war involving BeardOfZeus from five months ago, I don't see what point you're trying to make. Not owning up to this is only making you look immature. Plutocow (talk) 00:45, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
Look harder.--Spoony (talk) 00:47, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
It's not on other people to find the supposed evidence. If you want people to actually believe that you didn't start the edit war, make a fucking argument. Plutocow (talk) 00:49, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
I don't need to disprove an accusation the same way I don't need to disprove a rumor started in high school about me. People think what they want to think about others the same way I feel one of the guys in the talk page argument is scornful and condescending. if you want a hint look a bit past the edits who "started it" but you already addressed it on another page so I stopped caring.--Spoony (talk) 00:53, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
Once again you're trying to pass the buck, and you were reverting edits after Back2theRoots showed up as well. If you admitted your behavior, we could at least argue about the efficacy of it, but you refuse to even acknowledge reality at this point. Own up if you ever want to be taken seriously as a sysop again. Plutocow (talk) 01:06, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
Oh Im well aware my behavior wasn't efficient, my issue is the sour taste the whole argument in the talk page left in my mouth. I got belittled by a Catholic schoolboy. That never happened to me before. I'm used to denominational isolation bc of being around a lot of protestants but that in particular hit hard and different and I wasn't ready for it.--Spoony (talk) 01:14, 11 March 2022 (UTC)
