Welcome! Grab a goat! -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!


Thanks! -- I grabbed a goat! LOL Goat.jpg


As far as I know ...[edit]

... that makes three: kels, me and thee. Quite possibly though there are hundreds of us - keeping quiet. Anyhow, welcome. Keepout of sight 19:38, 11 August 2007 (CDT)

Sadly, there are always too few of us among the geeks. Be it policy geeks, science geeks, or the more traditional type. --Kels 19:57, 11 August 2007 (CDT)
Now Kels there knows stuff.
Me, I tend to hang around 'recent changes', lurking, or adding total rubbish to ACD. My main trouble is that I haven't got the patience (or the knowledge, or the debating skills, or the tolerance of rank stupidity) to argue with CREATIONISTS, FUNDAMENTALISTS, BIGOTS and/or SCIENCE DENIERS, but it's fun watching others do it. (And it's probably as good an education as Andy's classes) Keepout of sight 20:16, 11 August 2007 (CDT)
PS: whatever you do, don't spray paint any goats or do anything else to one, round here that's a capital offence.Keepout of sight
No spray painting goats, you may however "Paint" them with barbecue sauce, and slow roast them for a few hours...... Eye Eye.jpg See You 20:53, 11 August 2007 (CDT)
P.S. We value most anything, so feel free to jump in anytime, perhaps pwn a few pages.....
Thanks for the welcomes! I can't even figure out how to get a cool signature, let alone pwn anyone yet, lol. Total wikistyle newbie here, I can edit, but that's about it... CP Refugee 02:59, 12 August 2007 (CDT)

HOW TO:[edit]

Wiki Sig:

  • in my preferences
  • Check: Raw signatures (without automatic link)
  • In Nickname: type in your wikirefs & wikisigs in this format:
[[User:CP_Refugee|Refugee]][[User_Talk:CP_Refugee|<sup>Alms for the love of ....</sup>]]

Note:User name is case sensitive, replace spaces in user name with 'underscore' ( _ )

  • save - done

Test it here (do a ~~~, use preview button & cancel ) It should look like this:

RefugeeAlms for the love of ....

OK? Keep on wiping until it's clean » 10:32, 12 August 2007 (CDT)

Ok! Let's give it a try.... testing... Refugeetesting some words here ...
Looks good - thanks SusanG! whew, that was hard work, lol. When I recover maybe I can try to figure out how to make it different colors or smaller or something. Refugeetalk page

Thanks! Very helpful. :-) Refugeetalk page 15:23, 23 August 2007 (CDT)
testing colors...? ? ? Refugeetalk page 17:01, 23 August 2007 (CDT)

I've put you a test are to play in:User_talk:CP_Refugee/test_area

Hi refugee, you can take credit for inspiring the RW help pages (the ones I made anyway). Or not. Susantalk to me 20:40, 24 September 2007 (EDT)


LOL, Glad I inspired you - I need all the help I can get! hehehe... :-) Refugeetalk page

staying logged in[edit]

"I guess if I browse pages too long, it logs me out without me knowing" if when you log in, you check the box that says "remember me on this computer" you won't get logged out. hth, humanbe in 22:09, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

'til you log in from a difffferent IP. Like when I cross to another gprs node Damnit. Susantalk to me 22:15, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

I don't think I should because sometimes I log in from the school library computer lab, sometimes from the student union or math computer lab, sometimes at home, sometimes on my roommates computer. If I check "remember me", then anyone using one of the computers I used could log in as me...? I think so anyway! lol (or like you do -LOL!!!11!!1one!!! hehe) Refugeetalk page 22:19, 24 September 2007 (EDT)
I would advise: experiment. Use roomies 'puter, click "remember me". Then explicitly "log out" and see if it works, I think it does. If not, create a throwaway sock and log in as it afterwards. humanbe in 01:22, 25 September 2007 (EDT)
and what's a gprs node? Refugeetalk page
I'm on a PDA using cellphone access. Susantalk to me 22:28, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

Click upload file & follow instructions.Susantalk to me 23:25, 24 September 2007 (EDT)

YOU ALTERED MY TALK PAGE!!! DIE!!!!!!!!!!![edit]

Or not. :p

I don't mind your question at all. I stopped editing there because I get filled up with negative energy reading there (and here for that matter). Yes, that means I'm falling off the wagon the last couple days. As have many others, I've found it hard to look away.

No worries. :) Aziraphale 22:58, 8 November 2007 (EST) <-Irie, mon...

i understand completely. thanx for the explanation (ha, your section title scared me though... die! eeek! lol) Refugeetalk page 21:41, 14 November 2007 (EST)

where's my test area?[edit]

Ok, so where's that test area that Susan G kindly made for me a while back... I want to try to change my colors before I post again. I can't find it. :( (yeah I know, I am teh stupid one)

Try User:CP Refugee/sandbox. That's standard practice. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:52, 12 March 2008 (EDT)
Thanx! But I just found it! :) and guess what, all I needed to do was read my own talk page, above, lol. the link was right up there, somewhere. I appreciate the help though!
Anytime  : ) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 06:06, 12 March 2008 (EDT)
(btw, "I'm not as smart as most of you guys" Don't do that! Susanpurrrrr 07:54, 12 March 2008 (EDT))
Ok, I guess I'll change it then. :) Refugeetalk page 08:07, 12 March 2008 (EDT)

Everybody has to fight to be free[edit]

You don't have to live like that. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:12, 13 June 2008 (EDT)

hmmm... Human, sometimes you make me laugh, sometimes you say deep stuff, but, I don't understand this comment at all. :( I can haz explained to me? -- Refugeetalk page 02:07, 14 June 2008 (EDT)
Dig up the lyrics to Tom Petty's seminal hit, "Refugee", and all will be revealed. And, um, thanks, I think. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:55, 14 June 2008 (EDT)


Tom Petty, Refugee Lyrics:

We got somethin', we both know it, We don't talk too much about it. Ain't no real big secret all the same, somehow, we get around it.

It don't really matter to me, baby, You believe what you want to believe, You don't have to live like a refugee. (Don't have to live like a refugee)

Somewhere, somehow, Somebody must have kicked you around some. Tell me why you wanna lay there and revel in your abandon.

It don't make no difference to me, baby, Everybody's had to fight to be free, You see you don't have to live like a refugee. (Don't have to live like a refugee)

Baby, we ain't the first. I'm sure a lot of other lovers been burned. Right now this seems real to you, But it's one of those things you gotta feel to be true.

Somewhere, somehow, Somebody must have kicked you around some. Who knows? Maybe you were kidnapped, Tied up, taken away, and held for ransom.

It don't really matter to me, baby, Everybody's had to fight to be free, You see you don't have to live like a refugee.


Just saying "Hi"[edit]

Haven't seen you before, Refugee. Hi! Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 22:16, 13 June 2008 (EDT)

hehe... yes you have.. look above, you talked to me in March. lol :p (I am forgettable..) -- Refugeetalk page 02:07, 14 June 2008 (EDT)
*Eyes bug out* I did?! Well, uh, that just means I've made a new friend twice!  : ) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:58, 14 June 2008 (EDT)
hugs to R.A! :) Refugeetalk page 05:45, 14 June 2008 (EDT)

where's that other site?[edit]

Does anyone have the link to that other site that is like this one, but smaller, it has almost the same name, but longer, and it has a cute little "walking brain" icon for it's symbol? I can 't think of the exact name, but it's got a lot of the same members as here and similar pages, but different and/or expanded info on some things. I had the link but haven't been there in awhile and can't find it again. I'm putting this question here because I'm not sure who else's talk page it could go on... so if anyone happens to read my talk page (doubtful, but it could happen) and know the site I'm referring to, could you please give me the link if you have it? Or email me, it's enabled through here... thanks! :-) Refugeetalk page 16:29, 26 June 2008 (EDT)

RationalWikiWiki? tmtoulouse pester 16:17, 26 June 2008 (EDT)

Yes, we owe that to liberapedia. They use it at their article on us. ħumanUser talk:Human 16:32, 21 August 2008 (EDT)
That reminds me, we haven't had a Headless Chicken Mode for months. NightFlarei haz a talk page. 16:41, 21 August 2008 (EDT)
Indeed. We also haven't had any significant discussions about religion for months. Some might see a correlation between the two. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 16:53, 21 August 2008 (EDT)
What about the PZ Myers cracker/not-cracker thing? NightFlarei haz a talk page. 17:01, 21 August 2008 (EDT)
Oh yes. Forgot about that. Maybe we've just gotten old and boring, then. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 17:32, 21 August 2008 (EDT)

I'm still around :-)[edit]

If anyone cares, I'm still around. :-) I just don't say much. :p Refugeetalk page 18:06, 12 December 2008 (EST)

Hah - I was wondering if I'd be able to get you a third time RA! :-D Do I really have to read the rules again Human? and thanks to everyone who responded to my shameless begging for attention, lol. (how can I delete the intercom message now?) Refugeetalk page 21:57, 30 December 2008 (EST)
"Do I really have to read the rules again Human?" Of course not. Wait, what rules??? All we have are "guidelines"... ħumanUser talk:Human 22:57, 30 December 2008 (EST)
In all seriousness, I should read the guidelines. I tend to jump right in without reading anything, then ask about things that are covered. Refugeetalk page

On the contrary, everything you do is interesting *flirt* :-). Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 20:25, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

hey, here you are, yay! I missed you! Been thinking of you babe :D and you are much more interesting, that's one of the things that attracted me to you, that, and... well, you know. :p - Refugeetalk page 20:35, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Yup here I am! Feeling rough as hell and mad because I had to use public transport this morning and I despise sitting in bus filled with sneezing virus carriers and filth bags. BAH! Time for a cull. Anyways, my thoughts turn to you sweet and all is well again. *Shameless flirt*. Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 20:45, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
A bus full of sneezing people? Oh noes! Watch out for the swine flu... and how long will it be before you use the option to the left of your screen <<<<< that says "E-mail this user"? Or must I always make the first move... - Refugeetalk page 20:54, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
hehehehe you're forward arnt ya? I like that in a girl. I am at work currently and my email is linked to my work address hence I am wary of giving to much away......So..do I dare? Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 20:56, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
No, why not just wait until you are at home and have more time and feel like writing, and you are right, it's better not to reveal too much to anonymous females over the internet - I could go all crazy stalker or something! hehe. :p But I do think that it doesn't show your IP addy when you click the link to email from RW? That's how it works on some other wikis I am pretty sure, but I've never emailed anyone from here. Maybe send a test message to yourself and find out? - Refugeetalk page 21:07, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Its not my IP I am thinking about. My work email address lists my full name, title, contact phone numbers etc. That give to much away....however.....in saying that I could just reply to your mail via email this user instead of my email address...hmmmmmm x Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 21:14, 5 May 2009 (UTC)
Or we can just continue to carry out our flirtations here, in public... kind of like a group date. LOL. :p - Refugeetalk page 21:18, 5 May 2009 (UTC)

Sad pandas[edit]

You're probably just the tip of an iceberg. :( --Eira OMTG! The Goat be Praised. 19:39, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Kudos to you Eira, for trying to be a voice of reason. How ridiculous for a couple of people to say they don't like Human's unilateral decision to crat someone, so as a response, they de-crat everyone and say now you have to do things my way! I feel this was forced down our throats, and should never have happened. This was a really cool, unique, wiki. But there is nothing I can do, so my choice is to leave. Refugeetalk page 19:43, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Personally I'd suggest you get the full story before leaving. This has been coming for a long time, and is about far more than Human's decratting of Blue. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 19:47, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Apparently it's enough about Human to warrant refusing him sysop rights... --Eira OMTG! The Goat be Praised. 19:51, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
I think I know enough about the issues. But, full story or not - what I object to was the way this was done. No due process. No input from the "rank and file" as we have been called. But I have no say so, my only choice is to put up with it or go. So I go. Refugeetalk page 19:55, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
(EC)I'm assuming that this is about Totnes not giving them out? Totnes wasn't even around when this started; he's simply the fourth winner of Musical Crat, the purpose of which is to make sure a crat is always about. This was started by ADK and Nx. Whether or not Totnes hates Human (and I don't think he does) has nothing to do with what's happened today. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 19:55, 15 May 2011 (UTC)
Ok, time to take this debate to a more appropriate page than my user talk. Archiving in a moment before leaving. Take care all... Refugeetalk page 19:57, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

Legend[edit]

Unfortunately your wise words will be overlooked. Too many noobs have joined recently and too many seem to want this place to be some wikipedia mirror. This place isn't fun anymore, its over run by people who think they're either lawyers or congressmen. Pathetic. MarcusCicero (talk) 20:47, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

My rebuttal[edit]

Apologies about that, I thought it was the best way. I also wanted it to get done as quickly as possible; I didn't want any ECs to mess it up and make me have to start again. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 21:54, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

I completely understand your wanting to comment on my remarks - that's fine.. but it isn't standard to put comments right in the middle of someone's thoughts - then the entire essay becomes disjointed and incomprehensible. I copied the rebuttal to it's own section below, hopefully all is well now... Thanks! Refugeetalk page 22:01, 15 May 2011 (UTC)

" Posting links to people who share your opinion, I can do the same, it's ridiculous and proves nothing."[edit]

What an incredibly asinine and sightless post. Just because you use somebody else's words, your beliefs don't count? Ideas are not words. Debates are not beliefs. How Blue expresses her beliefs cannot be condemned so long as she is understood.

Now, I don't know what prior conflicts have pitted you and Blue against each other, but I am confident that you have misjudged her. Blue has been little else than a light on this wiki, one beacon among a few who choose to be bold, and to work for the site's betterment. She has dealt with endless hailstorms of insults and trolling, from Nutty Roux assaulting her appearance to Human questioning her choice of gender identity, and she has endured this all with nearly unfaltering stoicism. Why? Because she has a vision. She sees a wiki that stands as tower upon the internet. A tower unyielding to pseudoscience, bigotry, and obscurantism. She has devoted time and effort to create this tower, battling the rats infesting the foundation and slowly but surely, she has been laying the mortar between the bricks, has been refining the blueprints, and has been a support and a guide for the others who wish to build this tower. I don't know why you are here. Perhaps you share the same vision. And if you do, you should know better than to impugn Blue, who has always been a great asset to this project.--"Shut up, Brx." 04:27, 22 November 2012 (UTC)

Wow Brx, your a douche. What do Human and Nutty have to do with this? Please remove that photo of you and cat, which is what I assume is your only contact with affection (and even then that cat looks like it would flee if it could). It makes me nauseous. Acei9 18:52, 22 November 2012 (UTC)
Yeah, that was a bit much... Attacking people who are not here to defend themselves. Brx said "Blue has been battling the rats infesting the foundation" - how extremely rude.

Heh. Right you are Revolverman. Silly 'ol Brx. :-) Right after I actually gave you credit for making a sensible post on the other talk page... and a full 25 minutes after I redacted my entire post to Blue, including the part that you quoted (so what made you look up the post I erased, then feel that you simply must comment on something I had already removed, despite my explaining that I didn't want to perpetuate the argument any longer, hmmm? Silly Brx). Of course Blue does not need you to fight a battle or reply to me. I have no quarrel with you, and therefore you can step right on out of this conflict, it's been over for awhile, and never concerned you in the first place.

Something of an apology[edit]

I shouldn't have been so snarky, especially to someone who has been here as long as I have, and for that, I do apologize. That said, I am pretty firmly convinced, as I have said elsewhere and repeatedly, that mission creep is getting in the way of/watering down what RW does well, and thus turning the project into a piss-poor Wikipedia with snark. I really believe that there are vast swathes of mainspace that do nothing to advance the goals of the site, and that unless a page has narrowly-relevant and ORIGINAL content, it sould be torn down and rebuilt, or taken out back and shot. But I also try to respect the opinions of old-timers and valued contributors like yourself who see things differently. I try--not always successfully--to discourage newbs from taking the site where I don't think it should go, like the recently-deleted article on Mahler, and I try--not always successfully--to avoid pissing off regulars who have a different opinion than mine on content. Sometimes I fuck up, like I did with you. I'll try to be more mindful from here. PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 18:43, 18 January 2014 (UTC)

Thank you, that was very sweet of you. :-) I appreciate your comments. I think I understand your point of view, and of course, respect your right to it. IN fact, I agree with you that some articles do not further the mission and could be done away with. It's pretty hard not to go around slapping 'delete' tags on some stuff myself, lol. Rationalwiki is always changing and evolving, and hopefully with editors like you, who continue to care about the site and to work on improving it, RW will become better and better. Lots of potential here! Refugeetalk page 19:18, 18 January 2014 (UTC)
