What is your problem?[edit]

Why do you hate me so much? I'm an anti-Christian anti-American anti-Semitic neo nazi. Isn't that just what rationalwiki is? I know my edits terrify conservapedia jewbagels. Billybobcarterwashington 20:27, 22 November 2009 (UTC) Troll

If you don't mind terribly, can I appropriate the word "jewbagels"? It has a nice ring to it.

Re: CP liberal hate speech articles posted on Craigslist[edit]

Vandal Bin response posted on my talk page[edit]

Feel free to revert the parole if you want, but I'm a little more lenient on even extremely crass statements applied to public figures. ConservapediaEditor 03:57, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

The Penis Mightier[edit]

Was your penis mightier joke on MC's talkpage a reference to this classic piece of SNL humor? Just curious... Punky Your mental puke relief 18:53, 4 December 2009 (UTC)

I have been denied a fair trial, branded a vandal, and become a pariah figure for having the honesty to point out your flaws to you. TOP is one of the RW mafia who are incapable of self criticism and who insist on silencing dissent at any cost. His compadre, the inherently flawed 'Theemperor', is the vehicle behind which this website is reaching its demise; Do you really think that after all the aggro both Goonie and that little shite caused that I'll just disappear? I'll simply move away from being a concern troll to being an angry troll until you either decide to ban me or decide to unbin me. You'd think you lot would learn that giving me a just grievance will give me infinitely aggrieved energy. So wise the fuck up, all of you. MarcusCicero (talk) 20:49, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

Terence Casey Brennan: met him?[edit]

Have you ever met T. Casey Brennan? As I live and breathe, he is a doppelganger of L. Ron Hubbard. He and I used to get baked and he would kick my ass all over the chess board when we lived in a housing co-op on Washtenaw Ave. Still a babe magnet after all these years, it seems. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 02:56, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

I have not. But I'll keep my eyes open, as getting baked and getting my ass kicked at chess would definitely qualify as fun. UPDATE: Wait, I'm pretty sure I've seen him bumping around. Maybe @ the Ark? Anyway, just a glance at the article tells me I should search him out--I'm a huge comics guy, too. TheoryOfPractice (talk)
Not much into comics, me, but some of his stuff that I saw was worth a second look. That was then, and even at that time, one needed some tolerance of teh krazy to get along with im. He looked better in those days, and was often to be found on the carpet in a pile of people, all but him sporting bewbs. With application, he could have founded a bigger cult than he did. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 03:15, 11 December 2009 (UTC)

Season's Greetings[edit]

Please accept with no obligation, implicit or explicit, my best wishes for an environmentally conscious, socially responsible, low stress, non-addictive, gender neutral celebration of the northern-hemisphere winter solstice/southern hemisphere summer solstice holiday, practised within the most enjoyable traditions of the religious persuasion or secular practices of your choice, with total respect for the religious/secular persuasions and/or traditions of others, and their choice not to practise religious or secular traditions at all... and a fiscally successful, personally fulfilling and medically uncomplicated recognition of the onset of the generally accepted calendar year 2010, but not without due respect for the calendars of choice of other cultures, and without regard to the race, creed, colour, age, physical or mental ability, religious faith, sexual orientation and choice of computer platform of the wishee.
By accepting this greeting, you are accepting these terms. This greeting is subject to clarification or withdrawal. It is freely transferable with no alteration to the original greeting. It implies no promise by the wishee actually to implement any of the wishes for her/himself or others, and is void where prohibited by law and is revocable at the sole discretion of the wisher. This wish is warranted to perform as expected within the usual application of good tidings for a period of one year, or until the issuance of a subsequent holiday greeting, whichever comes first, and warranty is limited to replacement of this wish or issuance of a new wish at the sole discretion of the wisher. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 17:11, 20 December 2009 (UTC)

As some whose goal in life is fiscal ruin, I find your greeting offensive. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 19:38, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
I frankly find the greeting offensive as it is insufficiently inclusive. As some of you may remember, I am an alien from the planet Jupiter. No reference is made in the greeting to holidays which might or might not be celebrated by the many alien life forms who regularly visit Rational wiki. I trust that Mr Practice will reject it as a consequence of its implicit speciesism.--Skynet (talk) 20:19, 20 December 2009 (UTC)
Ummm, thanks, I suppose--but it's just another day. Nothing more or less special than March 23rd or the 12th of September to me--I care not for religion, nor pagan festivals, nor do i think that the position of a planet relative to its sun is an event worthy of my recognition. No season, week, month or day is any more relevant tnan any other. So have a nice day, whatever day it is! TheoryOfPractice (talk) 00:52, 21 December 2009 (UTC)
I like it when the days start to get longer, finally. But I don't so much "celebrate" the "change" as muse upon the tilt of the earth's axis relative to the star it orbits... ħumanUser talk:Human 01:23, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Mostly jazz. How did you know I played? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 03:22, 26 December 2009 (UTC)
You mentioned it in your highlights of the last decade bit in that thread at Saloon Bar a few days ago. Jazz sounds complicated. I have a mandolin, but can only play very basic chords & very basic riffs. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 15:48, 26 December 2009 (UTC)

I believe my warm, buttery friend was merely re-creating the name as a placeholder so you could not use it. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 01:31, 2 January 2010 (UTC)
Don't think he was referring to me. The stormfronter is referring to Conservepederast. He (CPede) is obliged to declare himself as a convicted person I believe. I am eating Toast& honeychat 01:35, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Hmmmm--but is C-ped a sock (as you are, kinda...) or does he have socks? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 01:36, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

A little too convoluted for me at 1:30 am, I'm afraid. I am eating Toast& honeychat 01:38, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Toast is partly right. I was talking about Nutty Roux being allowed to have a sock called Conservapederast. If Conservapederast is allowed, then HatesNiggersAndFaggots should be as well. But if everybody is SO against this name, then I can just make a new account called RapesChildren, since that sort of thing is apparently more ok than racism and homophobia - I promise, I'm a sock of a long-time user here! Just un-vandalbin me so I can make the account, ok? After all, I haven't committed any actual vandalism, or even gotten the chance to - I was judged on my name. SayItLoudI'mBlackAndI'mProud (talk) 01:42, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

If you're a long time user then you've got a username & are a sysop so you should be able to unbin yourself. I am eating Toast& honeychat 01:45, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Err it's only 8 in the Midwest. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 02:07, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, NR is CP, but it hardly matters if you didn't know that, since if you didn't, you couldn't have given privileges to CP that you would only have given if you'd known it was NR. So I retract that, but the question remains: If Conservapederast is ok, why is HatesNiggersAndFaggots not? Or why can I not have my name changed to RapesChildren and be unvandalbinned? PS: Hard to defend myself here when I can only edit once every half hour. SayItLoudI'mBlackAndI'mProud (talk) 02:12, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

So wait 28 minutes and unbin yourself. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 02:14, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

Note how you don't answer my question about why Conservapederast is an acceptable name and RapesChildren wouldn't be. SayItLoudI'mBlackAndI'mProud (talk) 02:43, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

I don't, but I wasn't around when he coined it. By the time I twigged onto it, he was already pretty established. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 02:45, 2 January 2010 (UTC)

How's digs? Acei9 22:04, 8 January 2010 (UTC)

Good--> Taking some good courses, making progress towards narrowing down the dissertation topis, getting on top of fitness issues and feeling better for it, enjoyed seeing my folks/hometown over the holidays, getting laid regularly, reading a bunch of cool shit for my own edification. Bad--> am working as a teaching assistant for a professor I can't stand, the sun never comes out and when it does it sets by 4PM, Mrs Practice and I have to go back to the weekdays apart/weekends together routine after Monday, and there's no beer in the house. How's you? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 22:10, 8 January 2010 (UTC)
Good --> Had a relaxing summer break, the sun is out, picking my new courses for this year which is always fun (until I actually have to study them), getting laid frequently, feeling healthy. Bad --> Concerned about finances and the possibility of losing my job, having trouble finding a new job, slightly concerned as I have a trip to Samoa which I won't be able to pay for if I am made redundant, the future is uncertain.

So, TheoryOfPractice, who are you rooting for (if either team) in this year's Super Bowl? I, personally, am rooting for the commercials, but that's because it's the main reason I watch. The Goonie 1 What's this button do? Uh oh.... 23:11, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

Bah, that's what YouTube is for. --Kels (talk) 23:14, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
I actually don't really "follow" American football (or much corporate sports anymore) so I don't really have a dog in that race: I do enjoy watching the games if I happen to be walking past a TV (I don't own one) and a game is on, but I can't really find it in myself to invest in really following the whole thing. I'm with you on the commercials though--as much as I hate what they're all about, lotsa smart and funny people are in that racket and they come up with great stuff...TheoryOfPractice (talk) 23:16, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
Exactly my thinking on the commercials. While I hate the companies behind them, you gotta appreciate the talent and creativity behind the people who make them. Otherwise, I'm not really a sports fan, myself. Though I do find myself hating the Vikings, but for reasons other then that they suck. The Spikey Punk I'm punking my punk! 23:22, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
I'm rooting for New Orleans just because they have a much worse record than the Colts. That's not much of a reason, but there it is. Tetronian you're clueless 23:24, 28 January 2010 (UTC)
If I had to pick a team, I'd choose the Saints, too. Simply because they've never won a Super Bowl before, and because they eliminated the Vikings, which I appreciate because the Vikings not going to the Super Bowl is one less piece of bullshit I have to hear in favor of raising taxes to build them a goddamn stadium when we just cut GAMC for the poor. Thank you, Tim Pawlenty, you heartless jackass! AnarchoGoon Swatting Assflys is how I earn my living 23:30, 28 January 2010 (UTC)

TOP, we've had our differences from day one. The one thing that we could agree on is that this wiki isn't big enough for both of us. We could have gone through the motions and dragged this out into a public debate, but we both knew what the outcome would be: one way or another, you were going to leave this wiki. In a way, I respect you for taking the high road by circumventing that process and bowing out before things got ugly. I don't know if I would have been able to do the same, and I wouldn't have expected you to let me off easy. Looking back on our discussions and deliberations, I caught many glimpses of the rational person I know you can be. It's something that gave me hope in you, and something I would like to see fostered and cared for like the delicate flower you are inside. Where ever you end up, I hope you find a community that will continue to hold you to the coals, intellectually speaking, without you pressing them for lenience or outright clemency. One day, I think you can reclaim the trust you've lost here. Fare the well. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 22:03, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Neveruse, thank you for your kind words. More importantly, thank you for believing in me. Know that your belief in me fills me with hope that there is, somewhere deep inside you, something worth salvaging, something that will ultimately bring you redemption. Go forward, knowing that you carry in you the potential to bring love and hope to the world. anywhere but here, Neveruse. Anywhere but here. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 22:34, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
Why am I not surprised, TOP? Why am I not surprised that you would so wantonly renege on such a hard-fought compromise? Your time here is over. The sooner you realize that, the soon you can began to pull the wool over some other unsuspecting community's eyes, because we're through with you. Don't call, don't send flowers to my work, don't even fucking think about it. Just move on. If there is anything left at the bottom of that pit inside your heart, scrape it together and try to look at this from our point of view. None of this was easy, and dragging it out is just making this harder. Are you some kind of masochist? Why do you keep coming back for more when I'm trying to let you off easy? I'm constantly amazed at the lengths you will go to destroy this community and my life personally. You know what I'm talking about and that shit was not cool. NOT COOL. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 22:40, 4 February 2010 (UTC)
When this whole sordid affair is over, when the Loya Jirga has come into effect and we have acted on the one thing that really needs to be done--you being de-sysopped, de-cratted, and 404-blocked from seeing the site, I will then do whatever else I deem necessary to ensure that you can no longer sully this community's reputation with your constant antics. And no, maybe it wasn't cool what I did, how I broke the "fourth wall" like that, but given the circumstances--and the photographic evidence that I had--it seemed as if alerting the people who have to live and work with you was the only viable course of action for me. And for them. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 22:56, 4 February 2010 (UTC)

Don't unblock EL[edit]

The guy is here simply to troll. Instead of unblocking him, find out why he was blocked (as per the comment left on the block). This is why we had the LJ setup. So that people didn't decide to systematically undo what others find should have been done, thus defeating any purpose to the mission at hand. Earthland does not add to this mission and abuses his sysopship. He needs to be removed since he cannot figure out that his actions are trolling. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 20:11, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Don't tell me what to do. The role of the LJ, as far as I understand it, it decidedly not to maintain permablocks that hotheaded editors wrongly impose on somebody 'cause they're on the rag and feeling a little thin-skinned today. You wanna make a case for permabanning EL? Wait a few days until we've got the LJ sorted out and take it to them. until then chill the fuck out. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 20:15, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
If you don't want me to tell you what to do, then don't be an ass on my talk page. I banned him because this is not the first time that EL has done this shit and has been told to stop. He obviously won't. Time to be done with him. Besides, what does he add to this site? Absolutely nothing. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 20:19, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
I appreciate your comment here. Thank you for that levelheadedness. I do hope he takes it to heart. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 20:22, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
EC An ass on your talk page? All I did was call you out for a flagrant violation of the site's rules. Show me where I was "an ass," or you're being the troll. I called out EL on his page too, FWIW. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 20:24, 6 February 2010 (UTC)
"What the fuck was that all about?"-That. I made it clear why he got banned. A peek at his previous contributions (the talk page and the ban) would have been very clear as well. So why the need to ask in such a manner like the reason wasn't already known? --Irrational Atheist (talk) 20:30, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

My new troll script and your problem.[edit]

Well, one bit of code was for CUR's siggy--not necessary. The other was the anti-MC code, and since I'm looking LJ-bound, I should prolly stay up to date on that issue, so yeah...I'm running F-Fox, like all the cool kids...TheoryOfPractice (talk) 00:51, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

There is something you must understand[edit]

"Pig" is not a nice word. Just in case you didn't know.

But I fully acknowledge the devastatingly painful difficulties that you had to go trough when you reverted the permanent ban that was given to me. After all, I had made a pointless comment, even if it was relatively innocent. Some would say that permanent ban isn't enough for such evil, but you know better, eh?

Don't take this effort to make any kind of answer. I don't need it. You don't need it. I'm just trolling here anyway.

--Earthland (talk) 19:04, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

"Pig" referred to the size of the page, not to the contents thereof. As for the rest of your comment, I didn't revert the ban because of you, i reverted it because those are the rules...TheoryOfPractice (talk) 19:29, 7 February 2010 (UTC)
I can't follow. Did you invent new definition for "pig"? Or was it typo? --Earthland (talk) 19:36, 7 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, was backed up with work for a while, and then needed to get out of the horrible town where I live for a few days. Missed the joint.

Vandal Binned?[edit]

Hi, you seem to have vandal binned me (possibly automatically) for using an IP used by MarcusCicero (block ID #487), and while I understand the precaution, I am not he, nor do I know him. Rather I'm editing from my college's IP address, so that may have something to do with it? Could you please unbin me, if you would be so kind? H. Randolph Twist (talk) 01:03, 7 March 2010 (UTC)

Your user name is not vandal-binned. If a particular IP address is, it is for good cause, and you shall, for the time being, have to edit from elsewhere. Eire has great internet service, so it shan't be a problem. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 01:10, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
I can vouch that this person is not me. But then again I don't expect this gentleman to prevail; RWs policy of knowingly blocking 15,000 students is absurd but with the new authoritarian regime anything seems to go. Even the once unthinkable.

So, ToP, what type of wine is your favorite? White or red, chardonnay or cabernet? etc., etc., etc... Lord Goonie Hooray! I'm helping! 02:26, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
