Locked out[edit]

Hi. Just out of curiousity, why was I locked out of the multi-level marketing page? I made a talk discussion about the changes I made to the article, and it kept getting changed back without any discussion on my talk topic. Then I got locked out. Is there something I'm missing? What's the point of the talk section? And why was I (the one trying to discuss the change) the one locked out of editing?

--Youlovedave (talk) 18:54, 24 June 2015 (UTC)

Why vandalbin The King (uhuhuh)?[edit]

Seriously, he's pretty harmless, and as far as I've seen he hasn't really harassed anyone, but only "mutually trolled" those who took up the gauntlet and replied to the various obvious troll-posts. I kind of think of him as this guy (he's responding to this question, btw). ScepticWombat (talk) 22:25, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Because Trolls is trolls and should be contained. If others disagree, eh, ok.--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 22:28, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
There are charming trolls and really ugly trolls (the latter includes RW's IP Whac-A-Mole block racist anti-Semite, mikemikev). Considering the bait The King uses for his angling, I really see no huge problem with him. I mean look at the quaint whackiness of it all: Bacon and Tyler Swift(?!?) It's actually quite hilarious in a sort of twisted, comedic twilight zone way. ScepticWombat (talk) 22:36, 29 June 2015 (UTC)
I do find him funny, I'd just we save our "ok with trolls" button for the ones who are really good, such as Rob on certain days, instead of a garden variety like Elvis. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 22:42, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Block of Fat Aardvark[edit]

Too excessive in time? Clyde Winters The Black Celt (Caledonia) (talk) 02:18, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

Nope. It's all progression - We go from short blocks to longer term blocks via doubling when the offending behavior does not cease. The most recent doubling was for block evasion. And i had debated instead of doubling it squaring it, so you know, i was being lenient: 64 days is much shorter than, i think it was 2 and some years.
K- didn't notice it was also for evasion. Hopefully they become a useful contributor in the future. Clyde Winters the Black Roman Centurion Guarding Hydrians Wall In Scotland Against the Savage Man-eating White Celtic Britons (talk) 04:49, 11 August 2015 (UTC)

It's more to do that the only interest they have in coming here is to post youtube spam (which, yes, it won't actually stop, but does control the ability to do so) and to then in bad faith argue with us about it. If they were actually here to engage with us sure, but they are not. We can't in theory ban for that, so it's better to limit how much of a mess they can cause on pages with said bad-faith arguing.--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 16:14, 12 August 2015 (UTC)

Request for Zionism page[edit]

Hi, things have calmed down a bit in the talk section, and I've been asking if we can take a look at edits I make on a section-by-section basis in my Sandbox, and thrash it out there. I've tried to get a commitment from Avenger and Arisboch that if, after whatever discussion is had -- with an opportunity to question my claims and choices, and for me to defend them - - then that section can replace (or be added to) the actual entry. Does that sound acceptable to you?---Mona- (talk) 15:20, 23 August 2015 (UTC)

You get an unlocked page when i know it wont dissolve back into an edit war. Get agreements that what you want put in is acceptable to the mob and you get to have the page editable. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 15:21, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
I fear that Mona's opinions are even "out there" for some of those that partially agree with her. Or in other words: I doubt much of her views on Zionism will make it into mainspace.

Greenwald in CAIR article[edit]

Could you explain why you took that out? As I just posted over there:

  • Once the article is unprotected, I'd add to the support and endorsements section the ACLU and some other prominent civil libertarian groups and people. RW was founded in part to counter the bullshit at Conservepedia, and the bullshit about CAIR over there is that they are a terrorist organization and not really interested in civil liberties. In my view, endorsements and awards from reputable civil libertarians provides worthwhile information to counter an insidious -- and false -- wingnut smear.----Mona- (talk) 03:10, 31 August 2015 (UTC)

Shouldn't there also be a glorious "Israel can do no wrong" ZOoRW version (no the current one isn't, it sits somewhere between the extremes, but don't ask me where) of the article for "balance"? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 16:09, 1 September 2015 (UTC)
No, but if you don't want to look like laggards I would get our version of the Zionism article spruced up.

"Then we can summarily say yes or no" I see. No discussion? No reasoning given? And why would that be? Paravant, I had inferred that you were nonaligned on the Zionism issue -- you are not---Mona- (talk) 01:03, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

You said the other version was "ours." You are pro-Zionist. I just tweeted this: "Mona Holland ‏@MonaHol 3h3 hours ago Over at @RationalWiki a Zionist sysop just told other Zios I may draft a Zionism entry for consideration but it won't be discussed." My followers are not inconsequential and I will not be placated and merely humored. I take RW editing seriously and give a lot of energy to it, and much knowledge ;and documentation on select topics. ---Mona- (talk) 01:14, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
"Ours" as in "RW's current version" but if you want to take me as a Zionist sure, but I have no love for Israel and would rather it go fuck off. But, you know, you can jump the gun and commit libel if you'd like, but I don't see it getting you anywhere.--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 01:29, 2 September 2015 (UTC)
Calling an unnamed RW sysop a Zionist is "libel?" (Your law degree is from Acme School of Plumbing and Law, yes?) Anyway, when I first joined I was super enthusiastic and saw many articles with that banner saying they needed work and documentation. So, I tweeted that anyone with time should consider joining. Therefore, I am obligated to apprise my tweeps of my actual view of things here as those views evolve. I take being told I can draft a Zionism article but a sysop has told those who oppose my views that there will be no discussion of it to be rather telling. (Also telling is that you know "our" version as it stands is unsourced shit.)---Mona- (talk) 01:42, 2 September 2015 (UTC)

This is clearly not doxxing. She volunteered her name (resp. claimed that to be her name), claimed that she is 59 or someting, claimed that she's a lawyer (can't remember though, if she said, where she practices), claimed that she's buddies and/or colleagues with Glenn Greenwald.

National Weather Service[edit]

I'm sure that at least one person may find use in having that redirect. What valid reason did you have for deleting it? The reason I ask is because there is only one organization with the name, with capital letters "National Weather Service". Can you name even one other situation where a country's national meteorological service is named, in English, "National Weather Service"? Considering that this wiki is in English, what are the vast majority of people who type in "National Weather Service" going to be looking for? In the United Kingdom, they would look for "Met Office", in Australia, they would search for "Bureau of Meteorology", in Canada, they would look for "Meteorological Service of Canada" or "Environment Canada", and so on. The only thing I can find that comes close-ish is South African Weather Service, and I find it extremely hard to believe that anyone is going to be searching for "National Weather Service" and expecting to find South African Weather Service. And how is "National Weather Service", in caps (because it is a proper noun), vague? I don't want to cause problems or anything, but I don't think your rationale is realistic. 72.198.107.13 (talk) 19:53, 13 September 2015 (UTC)

Can I please decide myself how I want to organize my talk page?[edit]

All I request is for one particular derailing comment by Mona to not obstruct the main discussion. When I did this by hiding it, you had a problem with that. Thaen I put it in its own section - something which happened over at talk:Zionism numerous times without incident. And you were still not happy. Now I am de facto disallowed from editing on my own talk page. Something we usually don't even punish vandals and spammers with. Please try to step back from your own emotion a bit and try to calmly explain why I should not have the right to organize this particular diatribe by Mona (which she at first posted several times in several sections, which goes to show how much off-topic it really was) the way I please, at least on my own talk page. There have been too many fruitful, spirited or even heated discussions that were derailed by Mona. I just wanted to avoid that. Instead the end result was so much worse. If my emotions got the better of me or you misunderstood me, I am deeply sorry for any offense that may have been felt. But I only intended for a better readability of my talk page and to decrease the likelihood of Mona derailing a discussion by steering it towards BDS. Kind regards. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 02:27, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Not when you do it to be a vindictive petty fuck. You asked why the leader of some minor populated country like israel deserved an article on its leader, Mona provided reasons why.

Also why exactly is Mona now a sysop while I am not? You do know that we two tend to disagree on some issues and the only reason she got to be sysop was because I had recently been promoted. I think it would be unfortunate for her to be able to "resolve" a dispute she has with me by "locking me out". I hope you understand...Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 02:34, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
you misunderstand, when i said that if you deserve to be a Sysop, the bar must be low enough mona must surely also qualify. If she abuses her powers, somebody will remove them from her, fear not. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 02:37, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
What about me constitutes "lowering the bar" in your mind? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 02:46, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
The bar was never very high. Sysopship is almost automatic for those who hang around long enough. (Been a sysop before, did a LANCB, reincarnated as Blacke.) Blacke (talk) 02:48, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

So please give me a list of accepted opinion and points at which I have to give them up in order to be worthy of sysopship. Seriously. Just because I have genuine honest opinions and convictions and I stick to them does that mean that I am forever bared from the hammer while Mona is given free reign? <joke>Bah! Humbug! is all I have to say to that. And yes, part of me is stuck in the 19th century.</joke> Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 02:51, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
When I said almost everyone becomes a sysop eventually - the main exception are those who go around demanding it, making a big deal out of it, etc. (Because, to be honest, it's not a big deal.) Blacke (talk) 02:53, 18 September 2015 (UTC)
Having disagreeing opinions and being a dick are two different things and you do yourself a disservice, as you have, by conflating the two. Mona has earned the hammer, Mona is trying to make better articles. I trust Mona to not do anything bad with the hammer, you, you i expect to misuse it if you decide to start edit wars over which english we use, give gibberish reasons for why we should go with your side and only give up when it becomes apparent you'll be in trouble if you don't stop. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 02:55, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Let me just say one thing about spelling: The more ill-defined a spelling policy is, the more edit wars you will generate through it. Assigning spellings to geographical reasons is bound to be extremely problematic. Trust me, I talk with experience from another wiki I edit at. Ultimately, you will have a few obvious cases ("Labour Party" in Britain, "organized labor" in Wisconsin) and many iffy ones. How do you spell "center" in an article about Germany? After all, "Shoppingcenter" is a German word. Yet Germany is in the EU as is Britain. Stuff like this is bound to get dicey. And I am of the ~5% minority that cares about minutiae like spelling (unless it is thaeaeaeaen which just makes no fucking sense whatsoever) Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 03:03, 18 September 2015 (UTC)

Let's wait a day or two.

Paravant, I agree with locking the Jeremy Corbyn talk page. It's spiraled well out of discussion of the guy himself. Btw, I take it the red exclamation mark means "this must be read and accepted!?" How do you make one of those?---Mona- (talk) 03:11, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Red bangs are for users who are not in the autopatrolled status, and are generated next to all contribs by said users, they mean "Look at this and make sure it isn't shit". In essence being autopatrolled means "you are trusted to not be insane" just like sysop means "you are trusted to not abuse" and tech means "you are trusted to not ruin davids day"--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 03:14, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
I pay more attention to the exclamation points simply because they're edits by non-trusted users and are more likely to be malicious or downright incompetent. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 03:16, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
(EC) Red exclamation marks are signals that say "hey, possible crazy alert, someone take a look". A sysop can then look and mark as patrolled, meaning "not crazy". If a person doesn't make anything crazy, they get autopatrolled and the marks no longer appear automatically. CorruptUser (talk) 03:16, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Basically, anyone who can be trusted to edit without extra attention is autopatrolled. If you lose that, it means you've lost the trust of one or more sysops (or above) which is not great of a position to be in. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 03:18, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I'll go even further than autopatrolled, and say that Avenger should be given back his mop. Not today, but once he has had a little bit of space (a few days maybe) to calm down a little bit. (I say that, even though I've clashed with him a bit, because I don't think he's fundamentally a bad person, he's just allowed the heat of some disputes to get to him a bit.) Blacke (talk) 03:20, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

I don't think he;s fundamentally a bad person and should get autopatrolled back once he's proven he isn't going to go off again, but I don't feel like he's entirely, and this seems supported by -numerous- established users, grasped RW enough to be given a mop. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 03:38, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
I just think if he is given another chance, it is an opportunity for him to prove himself, and if he fails it, it can easily be taken from him again. (Not that a mop means much - my old account had one, if I really wanted mop privileges I could just log in with my old account, but I really don't miss them, because other than the occasional joke block it doesn't make much of a difference.) Blacke (talk) 04:26, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
He can prove himself just as well without him, plus the many reservations people seemed to have about him and earning a mop. It takes a special kind of issue to have the candy of RW actually be given with trepidation. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 04:30, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

New section[edit]

(edit conflict)Just one minor nitpick concerning the Corbyn article. It was doubted by one user that neither Hamas nor Hezbollah recognize Israel nor have they ever offered to do so. That's why I took said issue to the talk page instead of an edit war. It looks to me as if even Mona - who usually supports and defends Hamas - can't say anything of substance to disprove my assertion. Hence I would advise for it to be reinstated pending anybody actually proving the opposite. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 03:22, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

"who usually supports and defends Hamas" God, you are insufferable. Insisting on accuracy about groups you detest does not constitute supporting them. No, Blacke, I think Avenger should be autopatrolled for as long as Paravant feels it is advisable. He's caused incredible amounts of trouble here on multiple pages, and not just those pertaining to Israel. And today was outrageous, with the creation of that absurd alk Quds page all so he could inveigle some uninvolved user to embed the link in the Corbyn article and thereby circumvent his (deserved) inability to edit it himself. Avenger has repeatedly shown he can't play well with others.---Mona- (talk) 03:32, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Guess not. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 03:36, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
It is irrelevant whether Hamas recognizes Israel's right to exist. Who recognizes any state's right to exist? States do not have rights. I mean, is the former Soviet Union going to show up at the Hague suing Russia over some right to exist? Peoples, however, have rights to self-determination. Jewish and Palestinian peoples. The entity now called Israel can continue as long as it grants either a right of return or compensation to the refugees they created and their descendants. It also must grant full and equal citizenship rights to the disenfranchised Gazans and Arabs on the West bank, and a fair Constitution that does not embed Jewish supremacism.---Mona- (talk) 03:41, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
And will the Arab countries give reparations to the million Jews and their descendants booted from their countries too? And will they cease to exist if they do not? CorruptUser (talk) 03:49, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

to be fair to drunk me, it's not exactly like Singapore is say, iraq, where democracy has little chance of working just by being imposed ontop of a overthrown out and out dictatorship.

I really don't like Singapore--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 04:46, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
The amount of currently well-off people doesn't really matter much in my opinion. Once you destabilize a country, things can get ugly very quickly.

I dislike Singapore's current government, but I'm confident that sooner or later (it might take 20 or 30 years), it will be voted out of office. And I think the people of Singapore will be much better off doing that on their own terms and at their own time than having it imposed on them by well-meaning outsiders. The second last election, the ruling party went backwards a fair bit, but still hung on to a clear majority. The election they just had, everyone expected them to go further backward (yet still win), but they surprised observers by improving their position. But I don't believe that was due to vote fraud or anything of the sort, just genuinely due to the political winds of the electorate. I expect PAP will go backwards again in the future. Now, no doubt they have gerrymandered the system somewhat to make it harder for the opposition, but I don't think they've gerrymandered it so badly that if a majority of Singapore voters genuinely wanted to get rid of them, they couldn't - and I'm confident that day will come, eventually.

A question to all those seriously interested in constructively arguing the fact of whether Hezbollah or Hamas recognize Israel and not some tangents: Do you support or oppose my adding the sentence that Hamas and Hezbollah don't recognize the right of Israel to exist with said references (or different references or more or less references) ? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 03:56, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Millions of Jews were not expelled from Muslim countries. There were only abut a million Jews in Arab countries in 1945. But yes, I take the same position Israel does, that those who lost their property to expulsion should be compensated.---Mona- (talk) 03:59, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
Go ahead, Avenger, but I will also add a reference explaining why it is irrelevant to demand that either organization "recognize the right of Israel to exist."---Mona- (talk) 04:02, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Sure thing. You just mutter "tangent, tangent, tangent" soothingly to yourself, over and over. Tomorrow I'm working on the Zionism draft. I won't get diverted with your nonsense.

I can undo andy further of your tendentious silliness on another day.---Mona- (talk) 04:11, 20 September 2015 (UTC)
I'd go a step beyond Mona, and say I'd 100% support a return of Jewish refugees to the Arab states from which they were expelled, and I think that would do the Middle East a lot of good. Jewish immigration to the Arab states should be encouraged, because I think in the long run it would be good for all parties involved. It's so much harder to hate people when you live next door to them. I think the ethnic cleansing of the Middle East (which has been going on since 1948 and is continuing to the present) is a large part of the cause of so much conflict there today. (This isn't just the fault of Zionism and Arab/Muslim anti-Jewish sentiment, although both of those share some of the blame; Sunni-Shia conflicts, and Salafi/Wahabi/Islamist intolerance, share much of the blame as well.) Blacke (talk) 04:33, 20 September 2015 (UTC)

Mona's tangent[edit]

Mona is currently edit warring to have a tangent inserted (citing an opinion piece in "electronic Intifada" no less) that argues that recognition of Israel does not matter. I do think all sane people will agree that no Israeli government will accept the abolishment of Israel. Hence the stance of Hamas and Hezbollah on Israel's right to exist is relevant and detrimental to the peace process. Mona's editorial is not needed on that. Thank you for your kind attention.

Actually, it means you were never enfranchised in the first place. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 23:50, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Paravant, what do you mean in your penultimate post? That was incomprehensible, your English is getting quite bad. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 23:51, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Well I was sysop before Paravant decided to go on a rampage... Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 23:52, 24 September 2015 (UTC)

Your sysopry is irrelevant to being Eligible, of which you do not meet the minimum requirements for. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 23:53, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Would you please explain the criteria? Otherwise I will have to throw around calls for a boycott and accusations of apartheid... Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 23:58, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
Paravant, are YOU eligible? Is Alec? Can't find either on the registration. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 23:59, 24 September 2015 (UTC)
I'm number 15 on the list. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 00:00, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Sorry about that, I wasn't looking for that. Can I strike those who aren't eligible? <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:01, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Which list? Care to link? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 00:03, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
See your talk. <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:04, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Assuming they actually are and are not illegible solely because we maintain an obscure list. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 00:06, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Umm, could you please clarify that? BTW, I am number 12 on that list. Spur RB.gif Alec Sanderson (talk) 00:11, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Paravant, are unlisted people not illegible? <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:11, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I wouldn't discount unlisted people right away who are otherwise eligible solely because they are not on an obscure list we don't link to, no. If, when asked to sign up, they say no, then yes, they are ineligible. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 00:13, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Alright. 12 is User:Sprocket J Cogswell, is there something I'm not aware of? <-𐌈FedoraTippingSkeptic𐌈-> (talk) 00:16, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Zionism draft[edit]

It took a few days longer than the few days I had said, but I have put a collapsed version of the unfinished draft at the Zionism talk page and asked for consideration and feedback, with an eye toward adoption in whole or part. Thanks for your guidance on the mechanics of this effort.---Mona- (talk) 15:48, 25 September 2015 (UTC)

Are you seriously believing that your hatchet piece will replace our curent coverage of this off-mission subject? Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 18:56, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Please take it to the Zionism talk page.---Mona- (talk) 19:04, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Zionism? Off mission? Ahahaha. Fuck off my talk page.--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 19:14, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
Please explain exactly which part of our mission statement covers our discussion of Zionism... And as it is apparently okay for Mona to go around asking other people to support her ridiculousness, I want an apology from you for blocking me for alerting people as to discussions that might interest them on their talk pages. Avengerofthe BoN (talk) 19:17, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I owe you no apologies. You invited v users with no stake cin the discussion, she atleast stuck to involved users. Ill punish her When I get home--"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 19:19, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
I didn't do that. I alerted the other authors that I had offered the draft, and also told Paravant who had asked me to post it earlier, but I had declined. I was merely paying him a courtesy and thanking him for shepherding the project on the two different pages (without taking sides). Not "asking for support."---Mona- (talk) 19:22, 25 September 2015 (UTC)
