Certified Lean Practitioner[edit]

I take this to mean you only serve fat-free foods in your restaurant.

"Sorry, we drain all the fat from the bacon before serving." Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 15:19, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Draining isn't fast enough, pal. They haul the bacon out of the oven and pat it with roll it around on a paper towel before slapping it in front of the customer Just In TimeTM. You're lucky this punk didn't get certified in the nineties, when "lean and mean" was the buzzword. Then, the bacon presentation included sarcastic commentary. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 15:35, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
Lol, that's pretty funny. I hadn't thought of it that way. But, no, lean as in Lean manufacturing. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 18:30, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Yo dawg[edit]

I heard that you were sober and bored. How's shit going? MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM And joyously screams out its painDolan.png 09:47, 27 June 2014 (UTC)

Going well, albeit bored. I'm not used to being up this late and having no substances at all (not even caffeine) in my system. I'm 2 weeks in on this whole "No drinking/smoking/coffee/other things for a while" shit that I started as a way to get my health issues under control. Unfortunately, this has made me realize that being awake until 6:00 a.m while stone-cold sober without even so much as coffee or a smoke is terribly boring and actually makes me act like a drunkard. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:53, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
That must suck. I understand the boredom and tiredness stuff you're talking about. Studying for exams until 3 am every day for the past couple of weeks has really left me in the same kinda situation. GØØBY PLS The epitome of Gods and Men alike Dolan.png 10:12, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Ick. No fun at all. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 10:15, 27 June 2014 (UTC)
Meh, it was worth it. I totally pwned that shit. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Suffer the stormsDolan.png 09:01, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, how I wish I was still just a full-time college student. Sure, there's the poverty of the situation to bemoan (or deal with the way that I would), but there's also a certain level of freedom to experiment and think for yourself and a level of error that you are allowed that you don't get once you reach the professional world. If I knew back in college what would happen after college, I would've tried my best to just stay in college. Perhaps, of course, that's a sign that I'm in the wrong profession. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:05, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Well, it sure as fuck beats high school. What university education did you get? DØØM MĖSSIÅH Remembrance of the transcending moonDolan.png 09:12, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
I am a mechanical engineer by trade, though I have currently found myself in the dual role as one of the bosses. I will say that the most curious thing ever in my schooling career was that, in high school, they tell you ever goddamn day, "This is going to prepare you for college." Then, you get to college, and all the professors for the first year tell you that you are starting with the basics because nobody ever comes out of high school truly prepared for college. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:21, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Grade-wise, I completely aced high-school, leaving with an OP1, and I found that the only real struggle I ha going from high-school to uni was that it was a lot less structured, which didn't really work out for me at first. The problem I had with highschool was just that people were such cunts, y'know? But the uni people are (mostly) pre' kewl. MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Deaf and blind and dumb and born to followDolan.png 09:27, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I completely understand. I loved everybody in college, even the ones that I knew I couldn't stand outside of the college's walls. To be honest, I am glad that I chose college over what my original plan was, even though that plan was working and I miss it sometimes. In reality, it wouldn't have been sustainable and I would've been damned to have settled for an entry level job or something. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:33, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
What was your original plan? MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Dark seas of endless pain…Dolan.png 09:36, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I thought I could drop out of society, and had for a while. There are, of course, extenuating circumstances that helped my cause, but I won't get into those. But for about 7 months when I was 19-20, I was an aimless drifter/hobo living off of dumpster diving, train hopping, hitchhiking (yes, it's still a thing), and panhandling. It was an adventure, to be sure. But one of the most dangerous things I've ever done and something that, looking back on it, I will never repeat (until I have a mid-life crisis, of course). Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:47, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Mmm, that sounds pretty interesting, actually. Being a doctor/medical research has always pretty much been my Plan A since I was about 15, which is what I'm studying for now, but, for a little while, I thought that I was gonna be a lawyer. But then I realised that law was boring as batshit. DØØM MĖSSIÅH What is this that stands before me?Dolan.png 10:09, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
If you are bored, would you like some light reading to pass the time? :D --ZooGuard (talk) 09:28, 29 June 2014 (UTC)
Ooooh, looks fun. Thank you ZooGuard! Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:33, 29 June 2014 (UTC)

Cool shit, part II[edit]

Don't worry, no 20 minute songs this time. Also, please ignore the terrible sounding shit in the suggested videos. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Don't read look every behind second you wordDolan.png 10:21, 30 June 2014 (UTC)

Not bad. Thanks for sharing. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 07:41, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

Do you think[edit]

LQT[edit]

Say that I was to want to apply LQT to my talkpage. How would I go about doing such a thing? I apologise if this info can be found somewhere else- I looked in, like, three places, then gave up. So yeah, could you please help me with this? Thanx br0. GØØBY PLS I know the pieces fit, because I watched them fall awayDolan.png 11:42, 6 July 2014 (UTC)

A better idea: don't. LQT is not maintained, which means that at some point, an update to MediaWiki may break it. RW's instance was already partially broken by an update (e.g. the toolbar doesn't load). Otherwise, if you are willing to take the risk, the instructions are here: mw:Extension:LiquidThreads #User documentation. It's a good idea to archive the previous contents of your talk page first and provide a link to the archive.
P.S. Also, this should have been directed towards RationalWiki: Technical support.--ZooGuard (talk) 13:17, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
See also RationalWiki:LiquidThreads. WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 13:40, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Dangit, Dolan, just when my estimation of your RW activities had risen to "useful, and not an idiot," you go and ask something like this. ZooGuard's first bit of advice, viz. and to wit, "don't" is worth repeating, IMO. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 13:51, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
K. I just saw it as a thing and I was like "heh, might try that shit". I was unaware that it was all dodgy and shit. THE GREAT RIGHTEØUS DESTRØYER Too close enough to touchDolan.png 13:59, 6 July 2014 (UTC)
Also, I would have put it on tech support- however, I thought that it was only for when shit wasn't working, not for asking questions about stuff that everyone else knows. GØØBY PLS Sorry if I piss you offDolan.png 04:26, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
If I were you, I'd stay away from LQT. It seemed like a good idea back in the day, but given how unstable it is and the fact that MediaWiki no longer supports it, you're better off avoiding it altogether. Trust me, there is a good reason why I stopped using LQT, even though I had been an huge advocate of switching to it back in the day. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:00, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Cool, I'll keep that in mind. It just looked cool when I saw it. MESSIAH OF DOOM Reaching out to embrace the randomDolan.png 06:04, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Oh, I think it's far superior as a talkpage format, but it is so buggy that it's not really worth the effort, especially since it being functional is dependent on whether the techies at RationalWiki care enough to fix it. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:07, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
Ah, okay. Also, sorry for spamming your talkpage with useless shit about LQT and cake and dumplings and whatnot. MESSIAH OF DOOM Wired were the eyes of a horse on a jet pilotDolan.png 06:09, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
It happens. I've often found that changing troll posts into discussions about things like food are music are the ultimate ways to repel further trolling. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:11, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Retirement[edit]

Oh no you fucking don't. Please, the Wiki needs your musical genius and your calmness and your amazing person-ness. Please stay. Seriously, if you quit, I'm fucking quitting with you. THE GREAT RIGHTEØUS DESTRØYER …Sate the Suicide ChoirDolan.png 10:14, 12 July 2014 (UTC)

I'm not gone for good. I just am not going to have time to hang out here for a while. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 17:18, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
So, you're just having a break kinda thing? That's okay, then. MESSIAH OF DOOM Push the envelope, watch it bendDolan.png 00:16, 13 July 2014 (UTC)

Concerning the New Deal[edit]

"Especially, it must be discussed if you leave no real sources in your edits with which we can fact check your assertions."

Actually, it was sourced extensively. I put in seven new footnotes and multiple graphs and charts.— Unsigned, by: The Honest Intellectual / talk / contribs

And none of the actual footnotes were very good. Cato Institute as a source? Really? Worse, the reputable sources like Wikipedia didn't help draw the conclusions you were drawing. As I said before, the best place to discuss your revisions would've been the talkpage. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 08:52, 26 July 2014 (UTC)

Can I please be a ninja?[edit]

I mean, I spend most of my mainspace edits just, like, fuckin', deredding and correcting grammar. So yeah, I mean, you don't have to, and I don't really mind either way. I was just thinking that, you know… THE GREAT RIGHTEØUS DESTRØYER Adorn the new king…Dolan.png 05:46, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

What specifically would you want/need to "bot" yourself for? Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:01, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
Just fuckin' small shit, like, fuckin', redlinks and grammar and stub templates and shit- for example, last night (well, night for me), I went through and deleted a whole bunch of links to a deleted page. I mean, like, it's not that big of a deal whether I am or not, but I guess it would be cool. Also, if I ever get annoying with all this questiony shit, feel free to tell me. MESSIAH OF DOOM …But spirit is foulest, devoid, askewDolan.png 12:39, 28 July 2014 (UTC)
I was wondering about this meself the other day when DM was making his presence felt in RC with an unredlinking project. Kindly consider this a good word put in, Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 14:12, 28 July 2014 (UTC)

You're in charge of edit filter, right?[edit]

Because, yeah, it's good to have a machine do shit so I can sleep. Much appreciated. MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Cacophonous aura of illness and woeDolan.png 13:50, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

I help maintain them, yes. But nobody actually is in charge of them. People with technical rights just have the power to oversee them and edit them. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 20:46, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

DFTT[edit]

Hi. Sorry for bothering but at least Brx and I hope a couple others seem to have decided to minimally tolerate my existence for now, and I'm putting up some texts on my talk page. So could you please remove the filters? I promise not to spam crap here and there; if I do you can just ban this account and put the filter back in place I suppose. I'm also already assuming that for now I'm banned from even creating any topics at all in the forum which talk about the topics I've been talking about. Likewise on the Saloon Bar and Chicken Coop, users' talk pages other than my own, etc. I suppose I will limit activity to my own user page, talk page, the "child sexual abuse" page, and the talk page of that. Is that OK? Drotsky (talk) 18:12, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Brx is an accommodationist idiot. As somebody who does his best to represent to best interests of the RationalMedia Foundation, I have zero intention of removing the abuse filters. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 20:46, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

Do you have a Facebook?[edit]

If so, could you please friend me? You can find me at "Cal Doommessiah". Thx m9. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Deaf and blind and dumb and born to followDolan.png 05:50, 5 August 2014 (UTC)

Your thing at the SB[edit]

Have 666 applauses for that. You fucking win. DØØM MĖSSIÅH Push the envelope, watch it bendDolan.png 13:07, 20 August 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. Unfortunately, that kind of idiotic bullshit has gotten me to recoil away from this place. I know I had some unfinished business over at talk:New Deal, but my heart and mind aren't into this place at the moment. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:16, 21 August 2014 (UTC)
Don't worry, be happy. The tide washes this way and that. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 12:39, 21 August 2014 (UTC)

Could we have some to make the thomas the tank enginge shit not happen? Your the only person i know who knows the edit filters enough (that i remember) to do that.--Miekal 16:58, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Give me some links (even red) to where it was occurring and I will get to work on it when I get home. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 19:57, 22 August 2014 (UTC)

Say, you're a tech of one stripe or another[edit]

I'm going to try to send you an email to see if it goes through. More details can be found here. Assuming my being unable to email people isn't a deliberate design decision, you might want to tell David Gerard whether you've received it, and possibly assist him in resolving the issue (assuming it's an issue, assuming it's worth resolving, and assuming you and/or DG have the time, capacity, or interest to resolve it. When I assume, it makes an ass out of u and me. Mostly me, you'll be pleased to learn.)

Also, I've successfully emailed you before, with you replying, so I figure this'll make for a half-decent control.

Thank you for fulfilling your accept duties as volunteer tech of some sort (I know you're a tech, but I don't remember if you have server access or other stuff). As a RationalWiki user, I am grateful for the times you have properly used your time and tech powers to benefit the site. I'll listen to a Casualties song in your honor (you like them, right?). And maybe move my head back and forth to the rhythm, cos I'm all rocknroll that way.

While I'm at it, are shorter messages from me more or less painful for you to read? It would help me if I'm looking to be polite and considerate towards you to know. Which I am now. srsly. no joke. like, I haven't insulted you or anything and I've even thanked you and praised you. I'm pretty sure this matches somebody's definition of polite and considerate. Hopefully also yours.--"Shut up, Brx." 17:19, 27 September 2014 (UTC)

I still am not sure I entirely understand what the fuck you are talking about. So, by that measure, shorter messages that are to the point are much better. Also, I received an e-mail from you in my old e-mail account the other day, but given its contents and the fact that it went to an old e-mail account, I'm not sure if it was spam or not. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 18:25, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
tl;dr, I'm testing to see if I can email people.
Can you email me the address/contents of the email in question? Someone I know received a spam email with my name, but from an address I do not use, and I'd like to be able to nail down what's going on with that.
I would, but I deleted it already and there is no way for me to recover it. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 19:22, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Was it an ad, or a link? When was it sent? Did it use brxbrx or my IRL name? Anything you can remember would be helpful--"Shut up, Brx." 19:28, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
The subject was something like "Check this out," and it contained a link to some Dr. Oz promo spam site. And it came from your "Camera Trixter" IRL name, not Brxbrx. That's about all I remember. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 21:34, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
Thank you. I won't trouble you about this further.--"Shut up, Brx." 00:26, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
RNS, I have sent you a test email to see if this problem is wiki-wide or only affecting Brx. Please let me know if you receive this email. MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Suffer! Bastard!Dolan.png 23:37, 27 September 2014 (UTC)
You dipshit attention whores realize that Goonie isn't a server admin, right? And since people like you gravitate toward each other, don't you think testing this blessed problem is something you could do amongst yourselves, since nobody else wants to hear from either of you? Nutty Roux (talk) 00:13, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Why, thank you for the kind advice, Nutty Roux. But you see, we have already tested it amongst ourselves. That's how we discovered the issue. So then, I tried emailing David Gerard, who is the server admin, and just to be sure, I tried emailing RNS, who I was unsure whether he was the server admin, but I knew he had some sort of role in the proper technical functioning of the site, and figured he wouldn't be terribly bothered by checking to see whether or not he'd received a test email.
And if the problem does indeed only affect Doom Messiah and I, wouldn't it still be prudent to make sure nobody else is affected? Anyways, out of courtesy to RNS, I suggest you take any further "advice" to my talk page, that we (or rather, I) not annoy him with a conversation that has nothing to do with him. Better yet, you could try emailing me, instead of posting to my talk page! That way you could see if this is indeed a site-wide issue. That, or simply shut the fuck up and go back into hiding instead of trying to make people miserable, you pathetic troll. Whichever you think is a better use of your time.--"Shut up, Brx." 00:26, 28 September 2014 (UTC)
Ok. I take advice from an unemployable racist dropout whose only social outlet is now concern trolling people who loathe him. Too bad you're you, chuckles. Nutty Roux (talk) 14:55, 28 September 2014 (UTC)

I will try to be succinct[edit]

  • My IP address is still blocked because you didn't uncheck the "Block IP" function the last time you blocked me for 24 hours (which was today)
  • You removed my sysop rights despite my having agreed to do as David Gerard asked
  • Telling you that you are wrong, regardless of whether or not you believe you are wrong, and doing so not by blocking you, but only in the process of unblocking myself does not in any way contribute to a bannable offense, or a reason to remove my sysop rights.

You don't like me? Fine. But just because you don't like somebody doesn't mean you get to erase them from the wiki.

Please restore my sysop rights, thank you.-brxbrx00:42, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

I'll unblock you, but you have no right to be a sysop. Being a self-rightous asshole when you were clearly wrong about something that is the essence of serious business on this Wiki is conduct unbecoming a sysop in my book. Alas, I'll let the moderators decide that one. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 00:47, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Forgetting everything else going on, if you're going to "joke block" or "message block" someone, please uncheck the option to block their IP beforehand.--"Shut up, Brx." 01:54, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
I am going to restore sysop rights since this is a ridiculous abuse of your power RNS. No matter how annoying you find Brx he clearly admitted he was wrong and had moved on. Stop trying to bully a user off the site, your tactics are nowhere near as subtle or surreptitious as it seems you think they are. Tielec01 (talk) 01:56, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Do you even know what you're talking about, moron? No, Brxbrx was trying to keep something up on talk:Kevin Martin that was being taken down because of the possible legal ramifications. After numerous people pointed this out to him, he got indignant and mouthed off the everybody. Nowhere have I seen him admit that he's wrong. And the fact that he was wrong about something very serious and still will not only not admit that he was wrong, but blames the people who said it was wrong it the only reason I see him as unfit for being a sysop. As I said right above me, I took it to the moderator's page so they can sort it out. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 02:12, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
You want me to admit I'm wrong? Is that what this is about? brx with a facefull of humble pie? Well, if what wasn't posted here and on T:ATIM isn't enough, then here you go:
I was wrong. I was incorrect. What I thought Nutty Roux was doing was not actually what he was doing. I should not have reverted him. I should not have reverted him a second time. I should not have even entered into the discussion he reverted.
If I had a webcam, and a hat, I'd upload a youtube video of me eating my hat. I. Was. Wrong. I admit that.--"Shut up, Brx." 02:23, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I know what I'm talking about. Would I be right to remove your sysop powers simply because I thought you are behaving poorly here and started a topic on the moderators page? Of course not. You dislike Brx, that doesn't mean you get to remove his sysop rights. Tielec01 (talk) 02:17, 3 October 2014 (UTC)
This has NOTHING to do with whether or not I like the guy. He made a bad decision about something that had bad legal ramifications for the RMF, and is unsympathetic about making such a bad call. If you want to foot the RMF's legal bill as a result of that bad judgement call, then be my guest. In the meanwhile, it shows that he doesn't have good enough judgement to represent their interests on this site as an administrator. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 02:20, 3 October 2014 (UTC)

Dontcha wanna take it up with the moderators first?[edit]

Or do tech powers make you overlord of RationalWiki? Also, did you not read the article you linked?--"Shut up, Brx." 04:05, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

I read that article, but it was for your reference, not mine. There is a specific reason that link was removed, but I will respect the RMF's legal precidence here. As far as the mods go, no. I am instead sending a e-mail to the RMF board itself. You are a threat to them. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 04:11, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
I've brought you to the coop.--"Shut up, Brx." 04:35, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Good luck. It won't mean shit when the Trustees have their say. Moron. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 04:40, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I'm sure Sterile will be very eager to ban me. Meanwhile, everybody else is going to look at what's going on: you removing my sysop rights for disagreeing with you. Also, just to make sure you're up to date (I posted on Tielec01's talk page as well), the article you linked to specifically mentions this:
The laws suggest that one who publishes a false statement harmful to the interests of another is subject to liability for pecuniary loss resulting to the other, as noted in Nesewat v Salem (1999 FED App. 0119P (6th Cir.) )
(a) he intends for publication of the statement to result in harm to interests of the other having a pecuniary value, or either recognizes or should recognize that it is likely to do so, and
(b) he knows that the statement is false or acts in reckless disregard to its truth or falsity
--"Shut up, Brx." 04:48, 6 October 2014 (UTC)
I didn't do this because you are disagreeing with me, you fucking moron. I did it because you are arguing about whether or not content removed as libelous was actually libelous. Since it was, and you think otherwise and seem to want to prove otherwise when a court would disagree, then you are a terrible representative of this site and are certainly not worth giving administrative rights to. But keep pretending you have a royal flush on a bluff. I will keep calling your bluff. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 04:53, 6 October 2014 (UTC)

RE:Talk:Kevin Martin[edit]

I understood your point and I am sorry if I cause any misunderstanding, sir. I think it is maybe good idea to consult you about it rather or not it is controversial before putting it down. Thank you for warning me about it. Now I going to head back to work. Daniiieeeel (talk) 14:51, 8 October 2014 (UTC)

Sounds like a plan. Have a good day buddy. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 18:36, 8 October 2014 (UTC)
Thank you kindly, sir. My contacts have bring to my attention of this document today. The document fill in the gap in the last sentence of the section of NOAA and NWS. Since I not good at integrating and referencing it into the article, could you help me made sure I am doing it right and proofread my edit? Thank in advance, sir. --Daniiieeeel (talk) 19:24, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

I remember when I was a sysop here you had a softspot for the trolls, Erin used to always kiss your ass and I'll be you even knew who she is. I remember you made an account called MarcusC to stick up for Robert too. How about if I kiss your ass, will you pamper me too?

What did Erin look like nude? She was such an ass kisser to you I know damn good and well she sent you nudes. Was she hot? - redacted

I've always wanted to use that that template that returns the username of the person viewing. If I could remember that template I would totally reply with "I suspect <username>". That would be sweet. Tielec01 (talk) 01:45, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

Am I blocked for being a Korean anti-Semite?[edit]

If so, it's a bit strange, considering that I'm a Swedish Judeophile. Now, you can't really be faulted for not knowing of my philo-Semitism, but the fact that I'm Swedish is pretty obvious considering the fact that I sign with my IP.

This community has so far managed to disappoint ever the dismal expectations the quality of its writing and intellectual rigour gave me. 213.113.116.240 (talk) 12:50, 10 November 2014 (UTC)

They are retards who think taking on creationists makes them scientists. 203.226.200.228 (talk) 12:57, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
It just frustrates me to see wiki contributors ostensibly dedicated to rationalism fail to even consider ideas that fall outside certain parochial Western dogmas that have absolutely nothing to do with science. I don't waste time on Conservapedia or Stormfront or other sites that are explicitly pro-idiocy, but I just had this naïve hope that I could appeal to rationality on a site with the word "rational" in it. I guess I'm a tad too literal-minded to handle the Internet. 213.113.116.240 (talk) 13:06, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
As a general in a technical war here, it would be idiotic of me to tip my hand as to my strategy. However, rest assured that once my filter program is complete, you'll have a much harder time editing here. So far as your attempts above at appealing to rationality go, take them and shove them where the sun don't shine. You're not unfamiliar to me. You don't seek any sort of debate or discussion; rather, you just like listening to your own twisted voice. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 19:09, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Well, your blatant anti-rationalism is refreshing in its honesty. But are you seriously still trying to tell me that I am in fact an anti-Semitic Korean? Because yesterday was the first time I ever wrote anything on this site. And I'm Swedish. 213.113.116.240 (talk) 19:59, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
Either you're a liar or I don't have a clue what you're referring to. If you are new here, then why, exactly would you accuse me of blocking you for being a Korean anti-Semite? Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 23:51, 10 November 2014 (UTC)
FYI: There's this asshat in South Korea who keeps on making sock accounts. He has a huge hate-boner for Jews and other topics related to racism. Looks like that's where anon 213.113 got his info. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 00:16, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
I was blocked with the motivation simply being "Mikemikev", which I assumed was the name of this Korean person. It's possible that the block was issued by someone else, but you were the one who shut down the discussion on "racial realism". In any case, the pointlessly hostile and anti-intellectual treatment I've been getting on this site speaks volumes about the integrity of its contributors. You're completely uninterested in objective facts and the best available research. Oh, and you're not some "general" in a "war". There is no Enemy, and you're not fighting on the side of Good and Justice. 213.113.118.5 (talk) 11:02, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
In any case, the block is obviously gone now, so I'm merely trying to figure out why it was issued in the first place. 213.113.118.5 (talk) 11:13, 11 November 2014 (UTC)
The talkpage being locked had nothing to do with you personally and had to do with me testing some things to get rid of a troll. I apologize if you were an unfortunate casualty of that, and I did see there were false positives, whis is why I ceased doing it. Everything from there on out was a total misunderstanding, on my part, of what you were talking about, compounded by the fact that I was not near my PC during the start of it, couldn't easily access anything to double check some things, and thought you were originally referring to an Abuse Filter that went after only known trolling IPs. I apologize, again, for y he misunderstanding, but you can't blame me for being confused by a bunch of technical factors. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 20:59, 11 November 2014 (UTC)

Well firstly, I'm not the Swedish IP. Not everyone that ridicules your far-left pseudoscientific PC extremism under the hypocritical banner of self proclaimed "rationalism" is me. Second, I absolutely am here to discuss. You lot are the ones removing my comments and blocking me, while again hypocritically accusing me of avoiding debate. The reality, as you know, is that you can't debate me. You can't stand up to actual science. And sadly hitting the easy target of creationism doesn't qualify you for that, you dime store Aristotle. You people are guilty of exactly what you claim to oppose. What crass dishonesty. And as for being a "general" in a "war", Jesus H. Christ. Could you be any more delusional? 218.232.69.11 (talk) 06:56, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Absolute bullshit. We've been "debating" you here for years, but after so many years of you trolling our pages and not listening to anything but your own voice, we are tired of you. Hell, even Metapedia got tired of you and your dick-waving. You don't seek to debate anybody, you seek to listen to your own delusional voice at best and troll us (and Metapedia, and Wikipedia) at worst. Your time here, meine fruend (just like at Metapedia and Wikipedia) is up. You clearly have no interest in intelligent dialogue or listening to any point of view that isn't your own. That's fine, but don't expect us to want to give a damn. Now, please do me a favor and remove your Nazi self from my talkpage. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 07:08, 14 November 2014 (UTC)

Bot account (sticky)[edit]

NoiseBot, for editing Edit Filters and not clogging up RC. NoiseBot (talk) 05:16, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

That red button- what does it do? Should I press it? MĖSSIÅH ØF DØØM Weird attention whoreDolan.png 05:35, 21 July 2014 (UTC)
It blocks that account. Only press it if that bot goes awry or, in this case, if an edit filter goes haywire as a means of drawing my attention to an edit filter problem. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 06:25, 21 July 2014 (UTC)

"Tedious Crackpot Spam"[edit]

What does that mean when you use it to remove stuff? It's pretty vague.--ReptoidKiller (talk) 08:34, 1 December 2014 (UTC)

In the context in which it was used against you, it means "I'm a disgrace to this Wiki because I'd rather not try to debate you." Thus, it's vague because it's used in a manner which is not constructive to this Wiki's stated mission. As a result, I went ahead and undid much of what had been done to your edits, especially since I sought to have the debate you wanted. I apologize on behalf of the Wiki for the abuses that were lobbed at you. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 08:41, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
"Tedious Crackpot Spam" would be a legitimate point to be made about gish gallops and purely copy-pasted arguments. While I think you're right to replace his edits, I would warn ReptoidKiller that it does take effort to research these theories and so it would be impolite to post too many at once. We will answer questions, but we ask that you do not abuse this. --TiaC (talk) 08:52, 1 December 2014 (UTC) (Edited)
I would edit that just a little and say that you should be careful not to start numerous arguments on numerous topics at once. While people like me are more than tolerant of such things, there is always the risk of ruffling feathers. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 09:07, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
You're quite right, fixed. It bears mentioning that people will be more willing to answer questions if you present your questions as an honest desire to learn. I think your odd formatting may have hurt this and caused editors to assume that you were merely copy-pasting arguments you weren't invested in. --TiaC (talk) 09:18, 1 December 2014 (UTC)
