Hey, could you tell me if you have a discord account (preferably name + discrim and ideally the ID)? We have a bunch of accounts with your name joining the support chat and I'm fearing this might be a raid of sorts.

WTF, dude?[edit]

Why'd you block me? Twodots (talk) 22:21, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

@Twodots Twas in the block reason, my young Padawan. Read this. It is most important. You are not to block the vandals for too long (unless they are hyper psychos). It makes the old timers sneeze violently and shake their cane angrily in your direction. When you block someone, the reasons are divided into time categories. Mindless generic vandalism is no more than 3.6 days. o7 (o7 is a a salute, btw, but I'm sure you already know. May the FSM bless you and your family.) - Rairyu75 (Talk) 22:29, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
Ok...? Twodots (talk) 22:31, 23 November 2020 (UTC)
@Twodots You seem confused. Perhaps in awe of the Noodly Appendage which guides the directions of our lives? Tis the Pasta above that makes the rules, and we merely enforce them. Now get out of here, before I change my perfume. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 22:37, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

You've made a good point Rairyu75[edit]

Hello, it's BON. You made a good point on "the most extensive and inclusive VOTER FRAUD organization in the history of American politics". Do you know what else is a good point?

You're right, the user I blocked didn't deserve it. Probably should've just tried to rename them or something. Twodots (talk) 00:33, 4 December 2020 (UTC)

sysop rights[edit]

It doesn't have to be a whole thing. A user with a history of irresponsibly granting user rights was reverted, that's all.--Hastur! (talk) 22:07, 6 December 2020 (UTC)

Per the community standards, what you did was illegitimate. Oxyaena Harass 22:14, 6 December 2020 (UTC)
@Hastur Aye, and like I said, I agree with you. People who are untested should not be running around with mops. It's dumb as f@ck. However, I feel Moosolini was unjustly treated in the issue I mentioned, and it would be hypocritical of us to treat this different. I agreed with him then, but clearly Dredd and Sirius made the stronger case. So I let it be and said nothing. I only wrote cause I saw him write. And I felt I should have said something the first time (not that me backing him up would have made one iota of a difference, but whatever).
Also, I doubt anyone ACTUALLY cares. This ain't gonna like, escalate the global pandemic or cause a shortage in alcohol. Feck it man. Just leave it. And if I caused offence to you, well, it was not my intention. (I doubt you would care though Hastur, you are a grown ass man like meself. You ain't gonna LANCB on us like uhm... someone we know.) Peace.
@Oxyaena you know, I suspect Hastur keeps hoping that you will develop a thicker skin, and learn to ignore him. That one day, you WILL prove him wrong, and not take cheap internet bait. You are well within your rights to complain Oxy, but maybe, just maybe, you wanna prove him wrong this time? And ignore him? Pretend nothing happened? Because nothing DID happen pal. This is all made up, bullshit internet nonsense. Nothing to truly care for. But if you do care, please don't have a spat on my talkpage. Thank you. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 22:25, 6 December 2020 (UTC)

Mindless rambling appreciation of Irish way of speaking English and other things[edit]

I've always enjoyed the way of cursing by using the extremely Irish word "Feck" as a substitute to the other word. I kind of have a very deep and personal affection to Ireland anyway. I might have told you this already (I've told it to a bunch of people but the Uisce beatha makes me forget which ones). My parents are both Finnish, but they met each other on a holiday at Ireland. So I wouldn't exist if not for you bastards. They (my parents) also instilled in me a deep and profound love of Irish folk music. Dubliners were the best fecking band in the world that ever existed. Anyway, love you man. I need to go to sleep. Just wanted you to know that any Irishman is an estranged brother to me. Peace! Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 21:52, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

@Knight Commander Well, after reading that nice message I feel a bit reluctant to tell you that I'm actually not a native... alas, I must be honest about it. I'm originally from Hungary (yeah, I know... hard to guess). I moved here when I was young, grew into adulthood, learned how to speak English. I have the Irish accent, if not the Irish passport (becoming a citizen proper would cost me 1,000 euros). I even think in English. But I can't call myself an Irishman Knight Commander. My skin isn't white enough, and my name is hard to pronounce for them. I can't vote. I'm a nomad, but I prefer it that way. Also, I'm waaaay too young to to have a proper appreciation for folk. The Irish bands I like are very... well, contemporary, I guess? The type of music the older people here call trash. But there is an old school style tune that I quite like:
Granted, it's very different from the Dubliners. But maybe you'll like it? I always feel calmer after listening to it. Anyway, look after yourself pal. Sleep tight. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 22:45, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Being native or what shade your skin is shouldn't really matter anyway to anyone who isn't a Nazi or something. You living in Ireland and speaking and cursing like Irish (and possibly drinking like one) makes you Irish enough in my books. Your name being hard for the natives to pronounce is just fun irony, since some of the Irish names have such ridiculous pronunciations themselves that I for one cannot twist my tongue around them. Like what the hell kind of way is "Key-va" to pronounce Caoimhe anyway?
Anyhow, I've been to the emerald isle thrice, and even though Edinburgh is my favourite town away from home, Ireland is overall just the best. Hungary though (along with Chechia and Slovenia) is one of the top European countries that I haven't visited but would wish to. Though specifically with Hungary, not with its current political environment. The fact that Fidesz isn't even the furthest right major political party in there is scary as Hell.

Amnesty[edit]

Why did you replace an Amnesty International link? Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 21:59, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

@DuceMoosoliniHey pal! This was the original version:
"He has been involved in high profile human rights cases all over the world, with pro-bono work in challenging the death penalty, helping it end in the Caribbean, with significant contributions to efforts throughout Africa and Asia. He was a founding director of charity 'the Death penalty Project'."(What the figures on the death penalty in the Caribbean are really telling us Amnesty International 30 April 2019)
If you click on the ref, you will see that it takes you to a specific highlighted paragraph:
"While hanging to death is still a punishment under the laws of all English-speaking Caribbean countries, for the first time, the number of Caribbean countries whose death rows sat empty has risen to nine, after Saint Kitts and Nevis commuted its last known death sentence."
Which mentions neither Starmer, nor the Death penalty project. Neither does the rest of the article, for that matter.
My version:
"Prior to entering politics, Starmer was a human rights barrister, a career defender before becoming Director of Public Prosecutions. He has been involved in high profile human rights cases all over the world, with pro-bono work in challenging the death penalty, with significant contributions to efforts throughout Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. He was a founding director of charity 'the Death penalty Project'."(A fight to the death: stopping the death penalty in Taiwan The Guardian 3 October 2016)
This particular article features this little paragraph:
"Starmer is a founding director of the Death Penalty Project, and has appeared frequently on a pro bono basis before the privy council – the final court of appeal for many Commonwealth countries – since the 1990s to challenge the use of the death penalty in the Caribbean."
So I felt it was a superior ref. That's my justification for booting the Amnesty link. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 22:10, 5 February 2021 (UTC)

My question[edit]

In part a 'reverse Just asking questions manoeuvre' - asking 'sensible' questions to annoy the troll (I know the person has been blocked in this case) or other annoying person (until they are blocked). This can produce amusing results (especially if channelling The Good Soldier Švejk - 'I was just responding to what you said, not what you claim to have meant), and they cannot accuse one of anything. Anna Livia (talk) 10:49, 26 July 2021 (UTC)

Bring back my draft article please[edit]

It wasn't full plagiarism. I had many edits placed on my article. I am very unhappy that you deleted my article. Could you please at least bring back Draft:Whippomorpha please? Pretty please with a cherry on top?.SixtyNine (talk) 23:49, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

@SixtyNine Sup? Please sign your comments, and don't put refs on talk pages and stuff. As for your draft, gimme a sec while I dig into official janitor protocol. I'll let you know in a bit. - Rairyu75 (Talk) 23:48, 12 August 2021 (UTC)
No, you shouldn't bring the draft back. It was off mission, and it was copied from Wikipedia. Keep it deleted. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 23:56, 12 August 2021 (UTC)

A nod in passing[edit]

I just saw the Reddit debacle and am very much still blinking at your reasonable tone, especially given the previous question. It's nice to see someone trying good faith diplomacy with soft rationale. Kntai (talk) 10:36, 11 September 2021 (UTC)

@Kntai Hah! Thank you. Though I actually think I might have been a bit rude. It's just offset by the fact that I'm a verbose little git, so I come across as less of an asshole. By the time someone wades through my text wall, they forget that I was mean to them! (I am so partial to big walls of text... I can't write in a terse manner, even if you put a gun to my head). - Rairyu75 (Talk) 10:48, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
If so, the verboseness you use is very aplomb and does not come across as assholey/ish. I found it cheerfully ironic, which is far less carpe jugulum than the usual fare! (And also, there is nothing wrong with big walls of text if they make sense.) Kntai (talk) 10:53, 11 September 2021 (UTC)
