Unblock[edit]

I'd just like to ask why I was banned? This is my first time registering an account — Unsigned, by: Plutocow / talk / contribs

My mistake. I read crow instead of cow in your username. If you stay, you'll probably understand the problem. GeeJayK (talk) 20:50, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
Basically, there's this long-term troll, hellbent on making a pervert and criminal out of one of our users whom he has a grudge against, who got coop-banned for harassing said user, and has since continued to haunt us like the Ghost of the Christmas Past by abusing multiple easily-recognized sock accounts. He loves to use the word "Raven" (or some variant to evade the abuse filter) or "Crowtin" (a rather silly insult he often threw at User:Sirius, a mod and tech he also has a grudge against) in his names. --Goatspeed.

Sysop[edit]

Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 00:35, 11 February 2021 (UTC)

Some context[edit]

The user you just unblocked is probably a sock of Conservapedia:Conservative. The info in that article is years out of date, and probably a bit confusing if you’re not familiar with conservapedia itself, but it should give you a general idea of who you’re dealing with. His main RW account Newton was banned years ago for some reason or other, now he just posts about the decline of atheism on people’s talk pages. Pretty harmless, but he is meant to be banned. Christopher (talk) 21:13, 20 February 2021 (UTC)

Award[edit]

Thanks[edit]

As somebody who spent a lot of time on the Joe Manchin article, I am happy to see you move it to mainspace (oh, and for all those contributions you made while it was still a draft too)!-Flandres (talk) 18:31, 22 February 2021 (UTC)

talk page[edit]

i just did take it the page, but you were just too quick to reflexly revert revert revert revert. prick AMassiveGay (talk) 17:12, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Blocking[edit]

Please don't block IPs for pi months. That's way too long for an IP considering that trolls just cycle through them. You could end up impacting an innocent person by mistake. It's a small risk, but it's one that comes with zero benefit since trolls know how to change their IPs. It's best to just give them a short block of pi days or hours. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 19:04, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

This person has had multiple pi week blocks yet keeps returning with the same IP to make the exact same edits. A longer block is necessary in this particular case. Plutocow (talk) 19:06, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Alright, that's fair. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 19:07, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

So that I get this right[edit]

Should I use "they", "them" and "their" when referring to you? Spud (talk) 06:51, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Yes Plutocow (talk) 06:52, 27 February 2021 (UTC)
OK. Got it. Thanks for telling me. Spud (talk) 06:55, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

Blocking[edit]

Could you go easy on the blocks? It’s best to assume ignorance over malice, if someone is malicious any damage they do is easily reverted. Our often ignored blocking policy is very lenient. Christopher (talk) 21:33, 8 March 2021 (UTC)

My bad, you were right to block that account. After a bunch of them started appearing it’s almost certain they’re spambots, although the lack of links to any other sites means their purpose is impossible to guess. Other than William Howard Taft, none of the names appear to belong to real people. Christopher (talk) 22:02, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Talk:Jack Buckby[edit]

Why did you revert the text on Talk:Jack Buckby? Bongolian (talk) 04:41, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Probable trolling, given the "Smear piece written by an Antifa" Plutocow (talk) 04:42, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
Did you look at the Wikipedia link that he gave? Bongolian (talk) 04:42, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
We already mention his claims of leaving the far right. Plutocow (talk) 04:43, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
OK, thanks. That should be good enough unless 'Jack Busby' wants to make any specific assertions that something is factually incorrect. Bongolian (talk) 04:46, 10 March 2021 (UTC)
We don't remove talk page content.-Hastur! (talk) 06:11, 10 March 2021 (UTC)

Zachary Taylor revert[edit]

What's up with that? The sentence makes no grammatical sense right now. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 09:50, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Given that Johnson was a raving white supremacist who tried to get Tennessee exempt from emancipation, I don't think he regretted it.-Flandres (talk) 14:26, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
The latter, as in exclusively referring to Grant. Plutocow (talk) 16:01, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
Yeah sorry, my dyslexia's hitting in again. I read it as "the later". I've no doubt that Johnson never regretted anything. Apologies for unnecessarily bothering you. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 17:39, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
Sorry if I sounded a little harsh, if you have dyslexia then I understand. Plutocow (talk) 19:21, 11 March 2021 (UTC)
No worries. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 19:47, 11 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi Oxy[edit]

Discord[edit]

What's your Discord? Oxyaena Harass 09:28, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

Didn’t you quit Discord ages ago? Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 13:20, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
I don't really use Discord, sorry. Plutocow (talk) 18:12, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
[EC]I’m not saying I believe it, but you make a good case. Doing this (and then collapsing everything) doesn’t help you case, Plutocow. Their first edit is also a little suspicious. Christopher (talk) 18:14, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, no. There are many people who are trans/NB, on the left, and on the spectrum. Plus, I have a history of editing as a BON which goes way back, which should be enough to disprove this "theory". I didn't want to respond since HBC is clearly trying to start shit, but I guess I have to if you are taking it seriously. Plutocow (talk) 18:18, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
The second one is literally because one schmuck sysop or moderator thought they were GodlessRaven because the name Plutocow has "cow" in it and "cow" is one letter shy of being "crow". MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 18:19, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
It takes two seconds to check the block log to see that case being true. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 18:20, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Your BoN edits do poke a hole in the accusations, and you’re right that the rest of the “evidence” doesn’t amount to much. There’s no way you could’ve known you’d get banned because of the cow/crow thing, so it couldn’t have been an elaborate setup. If you are Oxy, you’ve done a good enough job at covering your tracks that you deserve to get away with it; sorry, I shouldn’t have been so quick to judge. Christopher (talk) 18:27, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Also, I would like to point out all of this is circumstantial evidence coming from a user who has been obsessed with Oxy for quite a while.-Flandres (talk) 18:30, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
That troll is only asking to get switfly banned. Next time they do something weird I'll make sure she is permanently banned, even if it has to be a Chicken Coop. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 18:33, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
@Christopher So now, you are claiming I am Plutocow, wow. Guess anyone who thinks Oxyaena is not the literal spawn of satan is a sockpuppet of hers, might as well add ShabiDoo and LeftyGreenMario on the list since they defended Oxy too. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 18:32, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Wait, when did I say that?-Flandres (talk) 18:33, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Claiming various leftist users are sockpuppets of mine would be hilarious if it weren't for the paranoid harassment of anyone that's farther left than socdem because of the vague suspicion they may be me. Oxyaena Harass 18:34, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
What the fuck are you talking about? I retracted any suspicions I had about Plutocow, and never said you were a sock of anyone. Christopher (talk) 18:35, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────The schmuck sysop is here, and very offended by your post, Mario. And as someone who was once banned for being a sock (by Oxy) even though there was much less evidence, I think everything said is circunstancial. Another reason to enable checkusers on RW. GeeJayK (talk) 18:37, 12 March 2021 (UTC)

I was angry when I wrote that comment, sorry. I agree with the addition of Checkuser. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 18:41, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Same, though I don't know how that'd work. Would it be for all sysops, or only Techs and Mods? Cork (yak) 18:43, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
(EC)We have had checkuser abused in the past, unfortunately. Also, I will poliety ask everybody in this thread to calm down. HBCs' sad sockpuppet claims are going to be ignored, nobody has to be angry over any misapplied punishment, and what we have left is just users who don't like each other assuming the worst in each other.-Flandres (talk) 18:44, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
The RW community has repeatedly voiced its adamant opposition to checkuser. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 00:44, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
ik other ppl also don’t want it so this is basically pointless, but god please don’t do the checkuser please like just stop the other problems don’t do the checkuser. tbh idk if this is already the case but if not, just make it so ban evasion things are for someone acting in the Bad Way ig. Sockhunting is bad and also checkuser is scary. just some tips for the website ig, like it doesn’t really matter but personally, checkuser would be a hard “no” line on me using this site because of how much personal info I’ve already put on here that can’t meaningfully be erased. And maybe that is a concern for some other ppl also idk uhhh I should really go now and such sorry ❣️ A S E L A ཊལྐ ❣️ 18:48, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
ok last edit for REAL (this is asela) i will always be lmoaing at the fact that I was never accused of being an oxy sock despite being also a trans autistic anarchist Ban after edit 1 (talk) 19:16, 12 March 2021 (UTC)
Don’t worry, checkuser will never be a thing here. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 00:45, 13 March 2021 (UTC)
I think it’s obvious here that Plutocow is just yet another sock of Bongolian! Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 00:39, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Ken[edit]

If he wants to make a prick of himself, let him.--Mercian (talk) 00:08, 13 March 2021 (UTC)

Sysop[edit]

I've removed your sysop bit for your repeated banning of User:AngeloJohnGage, whom you continue asserting is a sockpuppet of "Mikey". RW has no mechanism for confirming whether this is true or not, so without better evidence for permanently banning a user who appears to be contesting the content of an article about him, knock it off. I'll return your user rights in 12 hours if you confirm that you've read and understand RW's block policy. Nutty Roux (talk) 00:39, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

See your talkpage. Plutocow (talk) 00:40, 14 March 2021 (UTC)
Your assumption isn't evidence. Stop abusing your sysop rights. Nutty Roux (talk) 00:46, 14 March 2021 (UTC)

Block parameters- “cannot edit own talk page”[edit]

It’s not an issue with the latest block, but it’s not a good habit to get into. It’s only used when there’s a need for it, ie the vandal is spamming their own talk page, most don’t bother and just make a new account or give up. Christopher (talk) 19:32, 16 March 2021 (UTC)

Similarly, don’t protect talk pages unless they’re really being spammed. Two instances of vandalism isn’t enough to warrant it, plus 104 says he’s gone now. Christopher (talk) 21:18, 17 March 2021 (UTC)

About TAOB[edit]

Where was it? I'm not saying he didn't do it, I just would like to know what happened. If it was already deleted nevermind, but I think you should show a mod too. GeeJayK (talk) 23:35, 18 March 2021 (UTC) Nevermind, Just saw it on the Saloon bar. GeeJayK (talk) 23:36, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Yeah, it was deleted. Plutocow (talk) 23:37, 18 March 2021 (UTC)

Nice to have another Spanish speaker and translator here[edit]

You might like to add yourself to the category Hablantes de español. Spud (talk) 07:49, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Hi, I'm trying to make some edits to a page and you keep calling me a long term vandal. Do you want to talk about it?[edit]

So, you keep undoing my edits and locking the page of my interest. I don't care about RW mission, and only one other page has interested me so far. Perhaps more will interest me, perhaps they won't. Why are you blocking me?

I'd like an explanation if you don't mind? — Unsigned, by: Mytechtoday / talk / contribs

I'll take that as an admission that you have been socking this whole time, and you have not once taken your proposed edits to the talk page. You shouldn't be surprised when people become impatient with you. Plutocow (talk) 03:13, 21 March 2021 (UTC)

Hello[edit]

Thank you for restoring my rights. I thought only mods could change them, I'm a bit curious as to how GC was able to do that.

I'm sorry for undoing your block on HBC, but he was reacting to GC not being entirely nice to me. I think what GC (and a few others) did in a thread in the saloon bar where I was talking to HBC was less civil. I'm fine with them, kind of conversation stoppers, but leave them be. I'm undecided on whether GC is going through a mental health crisis or not, and will likely adjust my opinion of him depending on the outcome. UninspiringNickname (talk) 02:59, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

GC lost his last remaining fuck and in the middle of a rage and depression spiral. But you don't have to believe that if you don't want to. Think happy thoughts and pretend GC is a liar! Then you can live in your fucking fantasy land in peace free from any evidence to the contrary! It works for Qanoners, it can work for you too! ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:05, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
(ec)You're welcome, any sysop can add/remove Sysop and Autopatrolled. HBC's assholery to someone that they knew was in a mental situation was bad and why I blocked them on top of having been warned for similar passiveaggressive behavior before. Such situations can trigger me as I have been in such situations in the past. In general, we should assume that they are going through a mental health crisis for now since the consequences of otherwise can be dangerous, but I hope everything just works out safely in the end. Plutocow (talk) 03:06, 25 March 2021 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie I disagree with you. I don't hate you. I have no idea where you got that from. But I've seen both kinds of situations. Go get yourself some sleep, please. Things always look better in the morning. UninspiringNickname (talk) 03:25, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

@Plutocow Oh, sorry, fat fingers when trying to look the contribs of that oddly-named User UninspiringNickname (talk) 15:42, 25 March 2021 (UTC)

UShistoryanalyzer[edit]

I don't think your vandal binning is warranted. Can you please show me, with diff links, the vandalism? If not I'll will parole the user (BTW - getting in a shit fight on a talk-page does not constitute vandalism). Ace://about blank 03:28, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

I warned him on their talkpage that if they continued to engage in edit warring after their last ban that they would be vandal binned, and they completely ignored the warning. UShistoryanalyzer was told a ridiculous amount of times to stop with the constant edit warring and they never listened, so a long-term solution is warranted. See User talk:UShistoryanalyzer#Seriously. Plutocow (talk) 03:33, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
The only solution I can see besides binning would be a topic ban from US politics/history. Plutocow (talk) 03:36, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Edit warring =/= vandal. You're going to have to justify it better than that... Ace://about blank 03:39, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
It's unclear whether UShistoryanalyzer is even a good faith user in the first place, given their complete refusal to listen to warnings and the fact that all of their edits are only there to push the Dixiecrat fallacy, but they were a problem user for a while now. Regardless, the vandal bin doesn't seem to be exclusively for vandals, we've put trolls there before. Still, the bin gives UShistoryanalyzer a chance to improve their behavior without allowing them to go on huge tantrums that result in them edit warring in multiple pages at once. Plutocow (talk) 03:44, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Since you've opened a case against him on ATIM I believe he should be paroled for now, so he can at least defend himself. GeeJayK (talk) 04:28, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Ken socks[edit]

We've been banning these socks for days right now and I think I've seen a pattern that they usually (but not always follow): they create a blank page. Have you seen it? GeeJayK (talk) 04:47, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

I haven't seen it all that often, I can usually tell because they spam the same pages and usually talk about the decline of atheism or RationalWiki. Plutocow (talk) 04:51, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, I've seen in at least a couple of times. I'd add talking to Ace on his talk page (which he doesn't seem to care) to the list. GeeJayK (talk) 04:52, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
I don't fucking care. If Ken wants to pleasure himself, discreetly and in a Jesus Loves Me manner, then he can have at my talkpage. Ace://about blank 05:33, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Well, your page, your rules, but I really think you should do something more interesting than catering to that idiot. GeeJayK (talk) 05:41, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
He garners the least amount of attention from me. If he wants to post rambling screeds then so be it. But I predict 2021 WILL BE THE WORST YEAR FOR CHRISTIANITY! Operation Who gives a flying fuck is successful! Ace://about blank 06:13, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Gentlemen, I do hate to do it, but on behalf of atheism I declare VICTORY! Ole! Ole! Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 06:33, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
If Ken needs Machismo training I can offer it at 100K (US Dollars - not our stupid girly NZ dollars). If Ken really had a sweetheart he wouldn't need to brag about it. I declare victory! As Sun Tzu was often quoted as saying... you're a fucking idiot. Ace://about blank 06:39, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
I'd say 2021 is probably going to be better than 2022. Every year from now on will be the worst year for Christianity, until Christianity is no more. GeeJayK (talk) 13:38, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
I will point out that lots of new users create blank user pages. That is not necessarily a sign of anything. 13:43, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Deleted drafts[edit]

Have we decided anything on that matter? GeeJayK (talk) 06:44, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

He's topic banned so he won't be able to edit the drafts, and thus nobody was going to improve them, and all were low quality anyway and only served to push the Dixiecrat fallacy. There's no real reason to keep them. Plutocow (talk) 06:49, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
That's not what I've asked you. I don't think we can just delete them solely on our opinons on them. We have procedures after all and there's nothing about it on the topic ban description. It might be the correct thing to delete them? It's very possible. But we don't have this right. I think you should at least post on the ATIM thread before making these monocratic decisions. GeeJayK (talk) 06:55, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Pages created by a user that is not in good standing are fair game to delete. If anyone wanted to dispute these deletions, they could bring it up with me, but if your problem is with the procedures and not the deletion then we have nothing to discuss. Plutocow (talk) 06:57, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Again, according to who are they a fair game to delete? Maybe I've been working for the feds for so long, but I don't see how procedures can be arbitrarily ignored just because we believe there's a faster way. . GeeJayK (talk) 07:01, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
If anyone had a problem with the deletion, they could bring it to me. Anyone could have undeleted them but no one did. There is no need to get upset with this if you're not going to dispute the deletion. Plutocow (talk) 07:03, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Well, I'm actually inclined to undelete them, but I don't like revert decisions of other users who have the same rights as I do. I didn't read them, but I remmeber Bongolian saying some of them are decent. GeeJayK (talk) 07:10, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Maybe you shouldn't speak authoritatively on pages you didn't even read. It's similar to you defending UShistoryanalyzer when you admit you didn't read through his edits. Please try to understand a situation before commenting. Plutocow (talk) 07:15, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Plus, people like Flandres and Christopher had already deleted crappy drafts without going through AfDs before. Plutocow (talk) 07:20, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
(EC) I don't think I need to read them to say that we didn't decide anything about it. The problem is not the content nor the user, is procedure, which is something I believe in and live by, and I don't think we can just delete things based on our opinions, we have rules for that. Otherwise we have arbitrariness. I defended you on Scrooge's page a few hours ago, but right now fascism accusations aside you're doing just what he accused you to do. I'll ping @Christopher here as I believe he also thinks things should be done by the book. GeeJayK (talk) 07:24, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Would you mind posting these? I'll see them when I have time. GeeJayK (talk) 07:25, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
We shouldn't need to be so bureaucratic that we need to go through procedure to do every damn little thing, like removing drafts posted by a problematic user who was topic banned from the subject that the drafts are posted in. Also Christopher has deleted drafts before without going through procedures, are you gonna call him a fascist as well? Plutocow (talk) 07:35, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
First. Maybe I wasn't clear enough, I said you aren't a fascist. I never call people that, unless they're actually fascists, because when you use this word a lot people stop caring and vote for fascists (I've seen this happening where I live). I said that I consider your decision was arbitrary. Second, in my opinion, yes I think we should go through procedures. But that's my opinion, others might disagree. Christopher will probably answer in a few hours, I have to sleep. Let's see his opinion. GeeJayK (talk) 07:41, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I say restore them all for now, nominate the best one for deletion and ask people to vote on whether they should all go. I’m careful to only delete hopelessly tiny stubs or pages that were only ever worked on by sysops (so they could easily restore them if they wanted to start working again). Christopher (talk) 08:04, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Good enough for me. GeeJayK (talk) 15:11, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Supposing we're doing this, how are we going to choose the best of them? Let him decide? Or would you like to decide by yourself? GeeJayK (talk) 17:22, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
I’m not sure, personally I’d nominate one or two. Should probably ping @UShistoryanalyzer and get his input, I imagine most people would let any technical violations of the Iban that happen during the process slide. Christopher (talk) 17:26, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Thanks for pinging me. It was utterly ridiculous that Plutocow outright deleted them just because he thinks I'm pushing some fallacy when I make good points backed up by sufficient sources. Unfortunately Plutocow has exhibited a high level of cognitive dissonance and intolerance. UShistoryanalyzer (talk) 17:33, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Please, let's stay on topic. GeeJayK (talk) 17:37, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Here's the thing: Plutocow made sure all my page creations would be in the draftspace so they could mass-delete them simply because they doesn't like the factual points I'm making. The info in my page creations were accurate and correct. Plutocow doesn't care about facts. I spent a good deal of time working on them to add onto RW's category for past U.S. political figures, but Plutocow doesn't care. UShistoryanalyzer (talk) 17:43, 11 April 2021 (UTC)
Plutocow has put personal derangement over truth. The facts speak for themselves. I was 100% correct to say that Rumsfeld held a pro-civil rights tenure as a member of Congress, but Plutocow point-blank reverted. UShistoryanalyzer (talk) 17:46, 11 April 2021 (UTC)

Yo, smooth brain[edit]

Remember that totally-a-ban-evading-sock-of-Ken you b& and then burned the evidence when it give you a sweary earful on its talk page for being such a dumb fuck? The one that you then re-b& with talk page access blocked?

Yeah, that was me. I suggest you take you and your idiot wikicop spidey senses on a nice long lurk moar leave of absence while I try & rediscover my previous goodwill re. you retaining any kind of blocking rights. A few weeks should do it. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 11:09, 24 June 2021 (UTC)

At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter if a “ban evading” account slips through the cracks, it’ll be abandoned in a day or two at most either way. Failing to consider the real impact of a block (often almost nothing) and instead blocking because you believe the account “deserves” it is an attitude far too many people on here have.

Meh. If one does stupid troll-y shit like that (create a few new accounts just to post completely stupid comments on the Salon Bar and even being bored enough to reply to your own sock), one might easily be mistaken for the stench of a certain banned troll known for creating new accounts and posting completely stupid comments on the Salon Bar, as also happened in that thread. It's kind of Poe's Law-ish in a way. Plutocow wasn't the only user that thought your accounts were a certain banned user. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 12:42, 24 June 2021 (UTC)
Yeah I don’t think the banning of an account made with the goal of getting banned is an issue, but Plutocow has banned innocent users in the past. Christopher (talk) 12:52, 24 June 2021 (UTC)

@PanGalacticGargleBlaster I never cease to be amazed by people's eagerness to comment trumping their (presumable) desire not to come across like a lazy fucking moron who hasn't bothered to look at any of the available evidence. Most immediately, from the restored Fullest Nelson talk page: "Your "superior" pattern recognition skills have blocked a blindingly obvious joke sock created in response to the Full / Fuller Nelson accounts." And if you can look at these contribs and see Ken DeFucking Myer, then your brain must have achieved a smoothness hitherto unknown to medical science.

Edit filter blocks[edit]

I have to ask; why are you blocking random IPs with the "see edit filter" reason? The edit filter works as intended, you don't need to block people for edits that don't go through. Techpriest (talk) 12:37, 17 August 2021 (UTC)

I used to do it as well, it was somewhat necessary when the filter kept disabling. Now that’s been fixed there’s no reason to continue. Christopher (talk) 12:49, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
There are still a few spambots who slip through the cracks or repeatedly offend. Plutocow (talk) 14:32, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
They don’t slip through the cracks, they’re stopped by the edit filter. It’s a waste of your time, confuses anyone watching recent changes, and forces a tech (I used to do it) to go through your logs to unblock any false positives. Christopher (talk) 14:37, 23 August 2021 (UTC)
I think he needs to stop overthinking about the spammers. They're burner accounts, they come do their bidding and then never shows up again. A 3 days block is the same as an indefinite block for these guys. (Profile) - (Spoke!) 21:10, 6 September 2021 (UTC)

You are being abusive, his last few edits he did not do anything wrong. One of his statements "Chimps are smarter than humans" is not completely wrong either, just miscaptioned. Senioritas (talk) 19:17, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

All were unconstructive, and they even tried to blank the chimpanzee page but was stopped by the edit filter. The problem is that they were told multiple times to stop and bring it to the talkpage, but they never listened. Plutocow (talk) 19:27, 18 September 2021 (UTC)

The Lincoln Project[edit]

Please come to the Talk article. I just don't understand why you insist on the phrase GOP is far-right in international standards. That's actually European standards, not international standards.--Umaru16 (talk) 00:23, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

It is not Cherrypicking that many Asians are very social conservative. I live in South Korea. I live here as LGBT and belong to other minority groups. Do you know what kind of abuse and terrible things I've experienced in my life? People in South Korea's minority group view the United States very positively. If you haven't lived in person, don't talk. And even Koreans and Japanese who are not part of the minority group think that the United States is culturally very progressive. Does it seem like I'm lying? --Umaru16 (talk) 02:21, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
It's cherrypicking because one you are only considering social policies rather than economic or anti-democratic ones, two only looking at Donald Trump rather than other mainstream Republican figures, three only focusing your analysis on one area of the world. Plutocow (talk) 02:27, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
As I said in another article, South Korea is actually more conservative than the United States in terms of economic issues. This is because working conditions and welfare are poor. And right-wingers from South Korea, Thailand, Myanmar, and Japan praise the dictatorship. You are doing cherrypicking. The United States has never had an anti-democratic dictatorship in history. (Trump has shown some authoritarian aspects, but it is hard to say that he is a dictator in the general sense.) --Umaru16 (talk) 02:35, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
All politicians in the United States are liberal in an academic sense. The right wing of the United States has a strong social conservative side, but they are also classical liberals. You don't know what a real 'Anti-democratic' and 'dictatorial' is. South Korea actually suffered from anti-democracy and dictatorship. And South Korean right-wingers miss that era. --Umaru16 (talk) 02:40, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
As I've said before, Republicans want to remove most of the welfare policies and regulations that are in place, and most Republicans backed Trump's voter fraud claims that he tried to use to steal the election. Economic liberalism is right wing economics. But I'm tired of talking past you so let's stop this for now. Plutocow (talk) 02:41, 23 October 2021 (UTC)
You are glorifying other Wingnut Countries to criticize the Republican Party. This is a very serious Cherry-Picking. You can fully criticize the Republican Party without having to fantasize about other countries.--Umaru16 (talk) 02:44, 23 October 2021 (UTC)

Glenn Youngkin[edit]

Kensock yes, but I still think it's missional enough for a RW article. Any way it could be undeleted? Besides I have intentions to work on it. (Or at least a draftification). --American time change coming up November 7, Andrew5 (talk) 21:42, 3 November 2021 (UTC)

It could be missional if we talk about how Republicans are using education as a dogwhistle, but the draft was hopeless in the condition that Ken left it in. If you really want to work on it, start over from scratch. Plutocow (talk) 21:56, 3 November 2021 (UTC)
I have trouble starting from scratch (not very creative) so can you maybe start it and I can expand it? --American time change coming up November 7, Andrew5 (talk) 01:10, 4 November 2021 (UTC)
If you want the article to be made, you're gonna have to put the work into it. I just don't consider Youngkin to be particularly high priority at the moment, especially as we still don't have an article on Ron DeSantis and I still need to finish the draft on Kyrsten Sinema.

Timeline of Gamergate[edit]

Would you be willing to provide some sort of justification for reverting these edits, considering that I posted a lengthy explanation for them on the article's talk page and received no objection? You've even reinstated the glaring errors in English that I pointed out ("Gamergate has for months been accusing her of pedophilia because of she had copied and pasted the content") DVS (talk) 10:23, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

Mainly because it was edit warring, and having no response on the talkpage isn't really a green light for going through with that edit in those situations. Plutocow (talk) 16:38, 7 November 2021 (UTC)

Not a big deal but[edit]

I think we should in fact remove the entire phrase here. I loathe Christian Rock as much as John Eliot GardinerWikipedia probably hates what I listen to, but I really think we should start avoiding weasel words like "some" and "most" more often, especially when they are unsourced. I'll probably suggest this next year when I have time on the RW:CS page. That phrase just looks like something that someone dropped just to needle Christian rock fans. Can it be correct? I'd say yes. But we don't have any source. GeeJayK (talk) 21:14, 23 November 2021 (UTC)

The issue is that gay people are not oppressed by the EVIL straight people in America anymore since 2003, when George W. Bush legally decriminalized homosexual acts throughout the whole country. The media, corporations and many liberal politicians stand by the LGBT side in any conflict they are involved in. People from the LGBT community actively harass not just religious people, they also go after people with non-traditional sexual orientation who oppose their activism, because many homosexual people consider the LGBT movement to be a marginal cult which points them in a bad color. Now in the community, especially on this site, any criticism of the LGBT movement is considered taboo, while people of heterosexual orientation are considered "oppressors" just because they do not support LGBT values. This is the real homochauvinism, which causes an anger from the other side and turns them into homophobes. And yes, take your opportunistic cheap insults elsewhere too, just because you are an admin of this website doesn't mean you can behave childish.

reverting with no comment shows me utter contempt[edit]

im not even gonna bother bothering explaining why the lazy sweeping statements you put back in the daily mail are just so fucking broad that they are just pointless and inane and they still need supporting with cites and egregious examples would be better than lazy assertions. im not not gonna bother arguing over the the readding of complete dross because there is so much dross in the article. i will say reverting with no comment is the height of disrespect, showing no more thought for my opinion than a mouse click, unworthy of any explanation from your grace. you wonder why ive reacted with anger previously? why im doing my utmost to be civil in the face of the utter contempt your thoughtless actions show me? are you so blind if you dont want to provide the common curtesy of explaining why you a reverting my edits, then dont revert.

i will not be so civil next time. learn some manners and show some respect - explain to whom eve made an edit why you are reverting it. its not a fucking difficult concept. AMassiveGay (talk)

"Dominionists believe that the civil laws laid down by the Old Testament (as distinct from the moral laws such as the Ten Commandments) should be enforced by reforming the U.S. legal system along theocratic lines, which would entail a substantial increase in the use of capital punishment." (From the article) This is not what I believe at all. No Christian I personally know believes this at all.--Back2theroots34 (talk) 04:08, 13 April 2022 (UTC)

"Unfortunately, this position is a strawman against feminism."[edit]

Hi Plutocow, why do you think this is valid? https://rationalwiki.org/w/index.php?title=Apex_fallacy&diff=2438614&oldid=2438328. Just because some feminists sometimes use a fallacious argument that does not mean the fallacy itself is a position against feminism. — Unsigned, by: Londondare / talk / contribs Requesting thread archival (why?)

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Please remember if you don't do this the entire archive page will be closed under that too, not just the vote we want. It's possible other things happen in archive 56.--Andrew5 (talk) 12:40, 21 April 2022 (UTC)

The CS not only allows me to but encourages it[edit]

Like I said: Do not start this giant argument again.--Spoony (talk) 00:32, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

It doesn't allow you to edit other people's comments. Also, don't feed the troll on the TS page. Plutocow (talk) 00:32, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Yes it does when it's inflammatory. I am not your enemy, stop lying about these things.--Spoony (talk) 00:33, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
It's not inflammatory, it's explaining my reasons for bringing that case to ATIM. I can't tell if you notice, but I have bigger problems to deal with right now. Plutocow (talk) 00:34, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
No it doesn't. It's passive-aggressive remarks directed towards me when you're talking about another user.--Spoony (talk) 00:36, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
What the CS clearly lays out is, when a dispute arises you fucking take it to ATIM rather than continuing to edit war. Take it there if you're serious. Plutocow (talk) 00:37, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Why do you edit war then accuse other people of doing the same?--Spoony (talk) 00:38, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
The burden of edit warring falls on the person making a change in the status quo, in this case, you. It says something that your only response is tu quoque. Plutocow (talk) 00:40, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Burden of proof? tu quo que? lol I bet you know what those mean and feel so smart. Stop being condescending and learn how you make others feel sometimes. Oh right, I get accused of the very things you do because you can't deal with the things you're ashamed of in your life.--Spoony (talk) 00:48, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
And now we're at ATIM. Again. Con-grat-yoo-lations. Plutocow (talk) 00:50, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
This should be good.--Spoony (talk) 00:51, 29 April 2022 (UTC)


The only article you got done on your main page is the Opium page[edit]

Do you do opiates?--Back2theroots34 (talk) 01:29, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

First off, that's a redirect, not an actual article, and the two I got done, Rhodesia and Diamond were removed from the list. Plutocow (talk) 01:32, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
And no, I don't do opiates, but I'm familiar with the topic since the place I live was hit hard by the opioid crisis. Plutocow (talk) 04:28, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

As usual, no one cares[edit]

Crustyclown.jpeg 🤡Concern Troll Alert!🤡

Krusty the Clown finds concern trolling dull and not amusing.

Imagine being on fire, running up to a firefighter screaming for help, and they hook their hands in their pockets and say, "Actually, before we start, I think you should say you're violently oxidizing. Not all oxidization is bad. I mean, some of my cells are performing oxidation right now, and I think it would be better if we ...

Quit embarrassing both of us.--Spoony (talk) 04:26, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

You do realize that a mod ruled against you on both counts. I think you're just salty. Plutocow (talk) 04:27, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Quit being embarrassing--Spoony (talk) 04:31, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
If you find this embarassing, then you only have yourself to blame, as you were blatantly in the wrong in that situation. I'd argue the whole edit war over the Gnosticism page was far more embarassing than anything I had done, but what do I know. I'd appreciate it if you didn't leave pointless comments like this on my talk page, though. Plutocow (talk) 04:35, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
As usual, no self-awareness or care for how your actions affect others. Literally no one in ATIM cares about your problem with me, and im telling you that you're an embarrassment to me and others in general. You're on the spectrum like me. Do you comprehend why you're being embarrassing? If not then idk how to explain it but i'd sure try. If that's how you get your rocks off though, there's literally nothing I can do about it and I hope you have your fun.--Spoony (talk) 04:37, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
What's more embarrassing, having the dispute resolved peacefully in ATIM or going on a massive edit war hissy fit? Your entire post reads like self-projection on your part, but nonetheless I will continue to bring you to ATIM as long as you continue to act like a jackass. If you don't like it, there's only one solution: don't fucking edit war. It's really not that hard. Plutocow (talk) 04:42, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
LMAO whatever helps you sleep at night. If you knew embarrasment you wouldn't have even made that post in ATIM in the first place. You clearly do not understandand keep bringing up red tape and edit wars and block logs. Not only are you a hypocrite but you ignore the spirit of the website and keep bringing up CS but once you understand the whole "spirit vs the law" thing you'll understand why that stuff goes nowhere. Rationalwiki is a school playground. And I like it.--Spoony (talk) 04:45, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
You're basically acting like a Kiwi Farms troll right now, I would recommend taking a walk outside. Plutocow (talk) 04:53, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Do you even know what Kiwi Farms is? It's a hate site that disguises "bullying" as "lolcows". Comparing me to something like that is laughable at best.--Spoony (talk) 04:56, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Making mocking comments about how I am "embarrassing" and bringing up that I am on the spectrum for no apparent reason is exactly how those people act. If you don't like being compared to them, maybe do a bit of self-reflection as to why I would perceive you as acting that way. I'm just tired of this. Plutocow (talk) 05:00, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
People on the spectrum sometimes do not understand how their actions affect others but they can certainly feel it. It's that simple. The fact you decide to twist my words involving that does not give me high hopes that you do understand, you just don't care and do not, which usually means a much, much worse assumption: that you are not on the spectrum, but you are a psychopath.--Spoony (talk) 05:06, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
You're calling me a psychopath based on what, exactly? You being embarassed by a situation that you were at least as responsible for as I was? Also, isn't that a little ableist? If you truly wanted to avoid embarassment, you wouldn't be having this conversation in the first place, but here we are. Plutocow (talk) 05:10, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Cool, call another guy on the spectrum an ableist. Keep going. Keep digging that grave for yourself. Based on the fact that you know, but don't care instead of the opposite.--Spoony (talk) 05:12, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Can you please stop responding on my talkpage for now? If you have any further disputes, bring them to ATIM. This conversation went nowhere, is going nowhere, and will never go anywhere, so if you have any of the self-awareness that you claim you have, you too will realize that it's best to stop. Plutocow (talk) 05:20, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
To stop what lol keep digging I did nothing bannable or desysopable and literally no one cares.--Back2theroots34 (talk) 05:23, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────LOL, you just gave away that Back2theroots is your sock. Well done. Plutocow (talk) 05:24, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Ok buddy. Stop being embarrassing.--Spoony (talk) 05:25, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
This just makes the Gnosticism edit war even funnier in hindsight, since you acted like there were three people on your side when it was all actually the same person. This also shows that you believe in creationism, that we are living in the end times, and that Satanists control the media, either that or you were trolling. But I'd like to thank you, since that revalation has shifted my mood from "on the brink of an aneurism" to "uncontrollable laughter". Once again, I must say, well done. Plutocow (talk) 05:35, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
Keep making those claims... If you think a hyper-religious person wouldnt outright just say those things boldly, then you have not grown up or been around them. Maybe stop being paranoid, assuming you're not being outright deceptive.--Back2theroots34 (talk) 05:39, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────LOL, you had a blatant slip-up, are you really going to keep denying it? Plutocow (talk) 05:41, 29 April 2022 (UTC) K.--Spoony (talk) 05:44, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

I don't believe that stuff. If that's what you choose to portray me as so be it. You think this is laughable this is dumb to me.--Back2theroots34 (talk) 05:43, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────So you were just trolling then. Got it. But that makes your complaints with me even more laughable. You weren't even trying to be subtle - you were always online at the same time, involved in the same conflicts, and making the same kinds of edits, so I was suspicious of you for a while, but it's nice to see that confirmed. Try harder to stay hidden next time. Plutocow (talk) 05:46, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

How much more stupid is this going to get? And yet you revert the edits by the alt. If it's an alt why do you care about its opinions?--Spoony (talk) 05:49, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
It isn't just any alt, it's your alt. Why are you trying to hide the evidence? Plutocow (talk) 05:54, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
At this point I'm just screwing around until someone who isn't trying to be annoying makes a veredict.--Spoony (talk)
Are you done yet?--Spoony (talk) 06:33, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
There you go putting your usual contemptful labels on things, you likely don't even know what a concern troll is but have fun getting your rocks off if you do but don't are. Insinuating I'm a concern troll implies I'm not an anti-authoritarian.--Spoony (talk) 07:18, 29 April 2022 (UTC)

Someone IRL was asking wtf was going on and my response was to point at the screen and laugh.--Spoony (talk) 07:46, 29 April 2022 (UTC)
