Hey bugger off! Just coz I wasn't online doesn't mean I deserve a block. That's like saying "Well officer, I only raped her because no-one was having sex at the time". CrundyTalk nerdy to me 23:27, 27 November 2009 (UTC)


Why the hell are you making a user that has only been here a few days a crat without asking anyone? Seriously, you are a serial abuser of your cart rights and I question your maturity to actually have them. He had better be another one of your "socks". - π 05:28, 1 December 2009 (UTC)

Of course I'm a sock. I should have thought that was obvious. Professor Moriarty 17:54, 1 December 2009 (UTC)
See? Word cubic Hoover! 17:54, 1 December 2009 (UTC)


What the hell are you talking about on his userpage? There are 10 votes supporting his cratship in the Saloon Bar and 4 against his cratship. Doubtless this was an oversight on your behalf. SJ Debaser 17:57, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

I have explained my reasoning on the talk page. If you continue to resist, I will be only too happy to rescind your 'cratship. Word cubic Hoover! 18:00, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm clearly missing something here, because I'm still counting ten people in support of his cratship while only four oppose. Does a vote have to have a bullet point to count or something? And please removing my cratship won't make me shutup, I'm an annoyingly persistent person. SJ Debaser 18:03, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
Yes, votes do have to be bullet points, and one bullet point is one vote. And the poll is closed, so it's too late. Word cubic Hoover! 18:05, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
You're not seriously going to discount a few people's votes because they don't have bullet points in a rule which I've never seen written down anywhere? Even if it is, I think it should be made clear when voting for people who aren't familiar with that rule. SJ Debaser 18:08, 12 January 2010 (UTC)

Voting does, and always has, worked the way Phantom Hoover says it does[edit]

Any particular reason not to post and discuss this openly? Word cubic Hoover! 20:21, 14 January 2010 (UTC)
Presumably to keep the reptilian overlords in the dark for just a little longer. --Kels (talk) 20:22, 14 January 2010 (UTC)

Hi There[edit]

Haven't noticed you around in a while. Have you been using socks again or are you a sock of Radioactive guy like I have always thought? - π 09:09, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

I socked for a while with Moriarty, but that's all. Word cubic Hoover! 09:11, 30 January 2010 (UTC)
Ah, you are RA. Nobody else ever used those silly namespace templates he made. Francis.gif - π 09:13, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Come back soon[edit]

I'm sorry I started all this. Please don't leave. -- =w= 17:02, 30 January 2010 (UTC)

Not you too, Phantom! Mei, what did you do? WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 17:39, 30 January 2010 (UTC)


Well thank you sir. I hope I will not abuse the rights, or responsibilities. Even though you gave me them so you could continue to block me ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 11:24, 31 January 2010 (UTC)


I see what you are doing & I am interested. -- =w= 22:07, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Basically, it streamlines the Mei userbox so that it quietly fits in some code at the bottom of the page. You can do away with the template altogether, but I was to lazy to copy the code over. Word cubic Hoover! 22:10, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
How is the userbox connected to my Cunning Log? /puzzled -- =w= 22:11, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
It isn't. It just reduces the number of pages needed. I was bored, all right? Word cubic Hoover! 22:29, 9 February 2010 (UTC)
That is fine by Mei. ^_________^ -- =w= 22:30, 9 February 2010 (UTC)


WHy not let him archive his talkpage when he wants it done? FrankThePseudoscientist (talk) 21:37, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

ese ruoy klat epag×. Word cubic Hoover! 21:38, 13 February 2010 (UTC)
That is fine, Frank, I assume Phantom doesn't think he is better than everyone else, so won't mind me changing his pages. :D --TK/MyTalkRW User #45 21:42, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

Seriously, PH, why worry about it? We already know he's a troll and won't respond honestly under any circumstances, so what does it matter if he lies in one conversation or another? The result's still the same. --Kels (talk) 23:39, 13 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm inclined to prevent TK from using the pibot: as it is a useful tool, he only tries to abuse it. And frankly, does the traffic on his talk page justify the frequent usage of the automaton? Here, a manual approach should be preferred. larronsicut fur in nocte 09:27, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
Who cares. Nothing is lost, and you can drag the question back to his main talk page if you want to poke the troll. And what are you expecting anyway, that he will suddenly have a change of heart and admit that he is a lying scumbag? -- Nx / talk 09:43, 14 February 2010 (UTC)
I care (at least a little bit :-) TK is a twisted King Midas: everything he touches turns to scum. larronsicut fur in nocte 11:19, 14 February 2010 (UTC)

Go and sneer, etc.[edit]

Note that only one person involved in that dispute has claimed that his country is superior in some manner. Note further that I am not that person. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 22:19, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

I take it...[edit]

...that you were shocked by Andy's reaction to TK's actions too? EddyP (talk) 16:13, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

More what he said about Tim. But it's all insane, and makes me even more reluctant to believe it's real. Word cubic Hoover! 16:27, 18 March 2010 (UTC)

You unblocked yourself somehow. Mei (talk) 18:29, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Orange bar[edit]


How do I remove the orange bar? It's appearing on every page whenever I log in, and it's either site-wide vandalism or an advertiser desperately trying to increase a click-through rate. -- (talk) 18:38, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

No-where on the front page or policy pages does it say that gay porn is going to randomly turn up...[edit]

Not to be all PC about this, but does that mean you'd be okay if it were straight porn? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 19:31, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

No, it means I couldn't be bothered to clarify it. My fingers can only type so fast, you know. Word cubic Hoover! 19:38, 30 March 2010 (UTC)


Someone in charge over there should probably look at this. -- Nx / talk 19:28, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Emmm.... Excuse me?[edit]

Thats quite heavy handed. I didn't even get a chance to explain myself for peats sake. Please move it back to debate space as I don't consider it an essay at all, I was hoping to spark a debate about the role of the State in Britains civic society. Honestly... Libertarian1 (talk) 10:40, 18 May 2010 (UTC) Thank you Libertarian1 (talk) 10:47, 18 May 2010 (UTC)


Get over yourself. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 19:41, 9 June 2010 (UTC)

Are you lumenated by the lumenatti[edit]

It doth appear, looking at his Wiki with Human last night, that Luemos has a massive hate-on for you at his Wiki. Not that anybody can understand it, but here's a link in case you feel like either laughing or having your head hurt. Or both. Gooniepunk2010 Oi! Oi! Oi! 19:44, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

Goodness. I can't keep track of all of these Lumen.*s. I don't know why he hates me, but he's insane, so... Word cubic Hoover! 20:19, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Hey, at least you've now got your own article on his Wiki. You should feel proud of yourself. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 20:38, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Perhaps, although my name isn't Tom. Word cubic Hoover! 20:43, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Hate?!?! Me?!? But I am love incarnate! I was so flattered with the article on me in RationalWikiWiki, upon discovering I was unworthy of editing that one and one that I am particularly knowledgeable of, I copied it to a more "liberal" wiki. PhatTom felt it necessary to ban me, and ey may indeed have teh skilz to "grab" power in me sorry little wiki, so I was putting out that public service announcement to let any users know, who is in charge. He has already made it illegal to edit user pages and has been writing policy to give himself the power to CYBERSTALK! Be forewarned ye lumenotians, EY COMMETH AND EY ETH FIERCEOME IF EY BE THY FOE! Lumenos (talk) 21:43, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
You were blocked for editing the article about yourself to paint yourself in a more positive light (which is against the rules there). Also, you just pasted a bunch of shit into the WikiIndex Incident that seemed more like talkpage commentary than actual information. - Conficker (talk) 21:51, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
I stated a rather obvious fact that I was (you might argue, righteously) stymied in my attempt at posting references or commenting on the unsigned/unsourced commentary there. You didn't feel the article was a bit unfavorable? I talks to meselves?!?! Where is the evidence of this? Something I wrote to you, that you had read perhaps? And how do we know I am male, exactly? Lumenos (talk) 21:58, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Um, just a shot in the dark, but RWW makes fun of most of the people on this Wiki when they can. Hell, if you wanna use it to poke shots at Phantom Hoover, be my guest and try your hand at it. Lord of the Goons The official spikey-haired skeptical punk 22:05, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Please. My article is awful. Word cubic Hoover! 22:12, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
If you want me to make me Supreme Emperor! Do it now without thinking! Lumenos (talk) 22:13, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
Sorry, that's up to RWW's Hans Johnson. Also, you can take shots at me in my article over there, too, if you'd like. There: you have two articles to poke fun at people at now. The Goonie Punk Can't sleep, clowns will eat me! 22:16, 18 June 2010 (UTC)
It seems he has vested you with this power, Sir. How shall I ever compete with the goblins even having these powers? They be up me little security hole first chance they get. Eeek! Lumenos (talk) 23:13, 18 June 2010 (UTC)

firstly, can we move this discussion to where it then belongs: RWW? Secondly, if I make you a Holy Roller at RWW, will you feel empowered? Thirdly, I forgot what the hell the original topic at hand was to begin with. Forthly: it's time for me to go jogging in the sweltering heat, so see ya later.

Oh come on, how long did that take you to work out? - π 12:52, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
Aww, you caught me. For the record, I'm also Human, Trent and Mei, all of whom are in fact Moriarty. Word cubic Hoover! 13:01, 26 June 2010 (UTC)
You know Moriarty didn't exist? He was a figment of Sherlock Holmes' opium induced delusions. - π 13:03, 26 June 2010 (UTC)

Are you retiring or just going away for a while? Conservative Punk (talk) 14:59, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

I think it's funny that leaving and never coming back is so common that it has its own acronym. But seriously, PH, where are you off to? Tetronian you're clueless 17:31, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
I can't tell you! It wouldn't be cryptic then! Word cubic Hoover! 18:00, 1 October 2010 (UTC)
Shucks. I was gonna nominate ole' PhatTom for bored member. This would undoubtedly be grueling torture I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy but the guy at the store said it would be a safer gift for a dude, than BJ. ~ Lumenos (talk) 11:45, 12 December 2010 (UTC)


Just a bump to remind you of your nomination for the RationalWiki Foundation board of trustees. You can accept or reject your nomination here. On January 10th, nominations close if you have not signaled acceptance by that point it will be treated as a rejection. Tmtoulouse (talk) 16:20, 7 January 2011 (UTC)

Hello Mr Hoover. You've been nominated as a possible Moderator. To accept, decline or discuss your nomination, see RationalWiki:Moderator elections. If you don't respond by 21st June, you won't stand as a candidate. ŴêâŝêîôîďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 06:35, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

What is it that is going on here?[edit]

I have come to return the message that you have left upon my lumeniki page. Have hence found things to be out of order. This is alright however because there are things I don't understand about the internets and its people. [poof] ~ Lumenos (talk) 20:37, 19 January 2013 (UTC)

Hey Hoover[edit]

Welcome home. Long time no see. How's tricks? BTW, could you maybe subst your signature or something? WēāŝēīōīďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:43, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

My sig is substed already, isn't it? Unless you mean somewhere deeper in the sig code, I forget how it's all set up. Time stupid Hoover! 00:40, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
The problem, rather, is that it is being substed. Do you know how to fix it? Peter mqzp 09:10, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Put the signature code in a subpage & transclude this in the signature page. Then only the template link will be copied to the page code (like mine is above). ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:32, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
