- I'm starting to think it's a bit of a bug in the wiki software that revert links aren't tied to a specific set of revisions. Queexchthonic murmurings 23:55, 16 February 2022 (UTC)
Blocking the 'unacceptable user names'
A plurality of variously inappropriate names have been created 'in the immediate past' - but there is no 'block user' tool link for them - how do I send them to 'the land of Salvador Dali's melting clocks'? Anna Livia (talk) 19:32, 15 March 2022 (UTC)
Blocking all account creation
- Trust me, it was needed in that moment. If any other tech or sysop around at the time prefers to deal with it another way, spending their own time stopping the flood, they are quite welcome to. If there had been a less intrusive way of handling it without sucking up my own time with no end in sight, I would have done that. Queexchthonic murmurings 18:34, 16 March 2022 (UTC)
At first blush I thought your “Chthonic murmurings” was from Lovecraft’s lore, and in which case, I would have recommended that you try reading any of Algernon Blackwood’s books. Upon a quick search, however, the word ‘Chthonic’ appears to be derived from an Ancient Greek term for the underworld. So, am I correct in supposing that your sentence “Chthonic murmurings” is making a Tartarean allusion? And would you then still be interested in my recommending that you read Algernon Blackwood’s short story “The Willows”? LeucippusSalva veritate 20:28, 25 March 2022 (UTC)
