Message from the RationalWiki Ministry of Demotion and Personal Impediment[edit]

Dear Publius,

We regret to inform you that you have been demoted to the rank of sysop. You are requested to report to a bureaucrat, at your nearest possible convenience, to be assigned a mop and bucket for the purposes of cleaning up the mess around here. If you have any further questions please refer to the enclosed pamphlet So you are now a sysop.

Your Sincerely,

Sir Reginald Albert Humfildink-Hollingsworth the Third,
Under-secretary of the Chief-secretary of the Personal-secretary of the Minister.

nice to see on your user page[edit]

that you accept the existence of the soul. Basically, a pretty soulless crowd around these parts. Lotta mind here, less heart and virtually no soul, so welcome abroad. Carptrash 13:39, 14 December 2008 (EST)

Nothing like inane messages from asinine people. Publius 14:12, 14 December 2008 (EST)

This isn't you...[edit]

...trying to be a shit disturber, is it?...'cause if I find out it is...(I actually don't think it's you, don't worry--but it's a little disconcerting that someone would troll with a name similar to one of our. Thought you'd want to know about it.TheoryOfPractice 20:58, 20 January 2009 (EST)

Yeah, just saw it myself. Not me (my parodist account is MUCH better). - Gentleman Publius (V)<,",>(V) 21:02, 20 January 2009 (EST)

Jest a note[edit]

I responded on my talk page to your question. Not sure of the etiquette here, but figured I'd leave a note here so you knew about it. Hactar 19:48, 21 January 2009 (EST)

Sorry I broke your sig[edit]

I forgot you were using the imagelink template in your sig, and I updated the template, so your sig broke. I changed it to a simple link to your page. If you want to use the imagelink template, I suggest you make a page like User:Publius/Sig0, then use that template in User:Publius/Sig, and put {{SUBST:User:Publius/Sig}} into preferences, like the help page says. -- Nx talk 14:59, 31 January 2009 (EST)

Not Judas: Wormtongue. Toast s.png (Toast) and marmalade 17:19, 2 February 2009 (EST)

Nay. Now that Andy has started comparing himself to Jesus, and open-minded conservapedians to the apostles, Judas fits him. PubliusTalk 17:20, 2 February 2009 (EST)

Epic parodist is epic[edit]

Congratulations on pulling the wool over Assfly's eyes, even for a short while! --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 18:50, 14 February 2009 (EST)


I always wondered[edit]

I always wondered; why did you block my account but leave the article that made you block me?--Tripcode 19:14, 14 February 2009 (EST)

The typical reason: CP's admins don't typically revert (or pay attention) unless they do the blocking. It was obvious enough parody that you would be banned in short order, and it would be reverted/deleted. However, when I nuked obvious parodists, I avoided actually reverting their material unless necessary, so much of it remains. PubliusTalk 19:26, 14 February 2009 (EST)
You did nicely pick up on the fact that Andy always congratulates blockers and gives no credit to the reverters of wandalism. I must say over all a good show. - User \scriptstyle2\int_{-1}^{1}\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 19:30, 14 February 2009 (EST)

Grading[edit]

I would suggest broading the sample range. For example, you should have students that are:


  • alternative lifestyle
  • athiest
  • anti-theist
  • Mexican
  • Chinese
  • cannot speak English well
  • Jewish
  • Catholic
  • Pastafarian
  • homosexual
  • bisexual


--"CURtalk 14:58, 16 February 2009 (EST)


As a response to the above suggestion that we run a Catholic test student, I wanted to recount my experience with trying out an anti-Catholic account. "JosephG" was dedicated to protecting CP from the corrupting influence of Mormons, Catholics, and other nonbelievers, and got into an edit war with some admins over an article about Hyper-Calvinism (which Joseph claimed was completely acceptable). He was also warned by email to remove his opposition to Catholics from his userpage, as Schlafly himself is allegedly Catholic and would be offended. Andy never really got involved, as they banned two of my accounts at once (they used to interact with each other - it was quite fun). It's interesting to see how, if he is supposedly a Catholic, he vehemently he opposes any claim that the Catholic Church is okay with evolution. --IlTrovatore 22:35, 16 February 2009 (EST)

That's very amusing. Who was doing the warning, if I may ask? Also, "allegedly" is the word. Andy's views do not jive with the Catholic church's (or any other church's). PubliusTalk 23:01, 16 February 2009 (EST)
I believe it was FernoKlump. --IlTrovatore 00:24, 17 February 2009 (EST)

Alacrity Reaction[edit]

Don't ask me why, but I nearly lost it when you provided the mental imagery of Ken Doll dropping his pot of boiled hot dogs. The Foxhole Atheist 11:47, 3 March 2009 (EST)

I aim to please. PubliusTalk 11:52, 3 March 2009 (EST)

Your award[edit]

I just saw your award on "Bugler's" talkpage my I suggest a name change from Publius' "Parodist's Parodist" Excellence in Parody Prize to Publius' "Parodist's Parodist" Preeminence in Parody Prize? I love the picture though. - User \scriptstyle2\int_{-1}^{1}\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 07:08, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

Cool edit added real knowlege to the Storehouse. Proxima Centauri 02:06, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

I love providing well sourced, deeply uncomfortable information. PubliusTalk 03:39, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

User:TheoryOfPractice got unfairly blocked yesterday. This scholarly contribution merits a block with threats of longer bollocks blocks to come. If they want that wiki to be polite why didn’t they just give TheoryOfPractice a polite warning? he’s back editing today. Do you feel like adding to the article on Northern Ireland? Do you feel like writing on Sectarian violence? Proxima Centauri 14:16, 11 April 2009 (EDT)

Think for yourself.[edit]

You should really make more of an effort to think for yourself, rather than look for reassurance from your peers. MarcusCicero 22:01, 2 October 2009 (UTC)

Great, a dumbass makes an inane remark on my talkpage. Oh joyous day. PubliusTalk 22:39, 2 October 2009 (UTC)
