While waiting for you to recover from rheumatism...[edit]

... a thought came to me out of the blue, probably in connection with over-interpreting scarce sources. You know about the probable interpolation in Josephus of course and how very meagre the sources for the life of Jesus are. Well, I assume you have heard of Ari ÞorgilssonWikipedia and ÍslendingabókWikipedia. Ari says, that among the things the Irish monks left behind were bells ans „baglar“. „Baglar“ is the plural of „bagall“ which is borrowed from Latin baculus, a word that can mean a bishop's staff. Before I continue, let it be said that Íslendingabók is perhaps 10 pages in an ordinary format, but has spawned libraries of commentaries. :-) Anyway, one autodidact reasoned that since the book referred to said staff in the plural, there had to have been several bishops, and where you have several bishops there are several bishoprics and hence Iceland had to have been densely populated by the Irish before the Norse discovered it. This was set forth in a book of some length, and all because of a single plural form which might not be original or not refer to what he thought: A „bagall“ could be any crooked staff. :-) And yes, to answer a question I forgot to answer, I write because it's fun, including to you. That's all. Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 23:35, 19 December 2015 (UTC)

I hope I didn't offend you with my joke in the title above. But there is one answer and one observation I owe you. The answer, why I write to you is that you are a pleasant guy to talk to and I enjoy conversing. I usually write more than the receiver can manage to answer, so I fully understand writing into the void sometimes. You're just a victim of that part of me - the part which enjoys exchanging ideas. The observation is that in your question about my past here, I don't think I've seen as many „nices“ packed into such a short space for quite a while. Don't feel the need to pussyfoot, at least not to me. I am or should at least be a grown man. :-) And now I'll hope you've regained your strength and can amuse me with some insights. There's a question pending, which has to do with my education, namely philosophy. And, by the way, you and the Wombat have my vote in January because of geography. I don't know who the third will be. Skål. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 17:26, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
I think your title was really funny and I really enjoy the fact that you're so openly reflective about yourself while showing others genuine interest. Much respect - though, you're absolutely right that you write faster than people can respond. ^^ I've been so bombed lately my friends call me Beirut, so I'd love to be given some time - a few days perhaps - to get back to you on things on this talkpage (as every new, nice post on my talkpage makes me want to reply to the author with an additional meter of text).
And by the way, vote? As in, for moderator? Huh, I just noticed I've been nominated. Extending me the confidence of your vote is very sweet of you, although I'll assure you that were I to actually make a concerted effort at running for moderator, I'd stand any chance of being elected mainly by virtue of me not being a gaping asshole, and not by virtue of me looking forward to having to make sure that none of the naughty children decide to clog the playground slide by parking halfway down it.
In coherent plain english: what I like doing on this wiki doesn't really include participating in drama. But alas. I certainly wouldn't abuse my powers if I was elected, that's for sure. And were I elected moderator, I certainly wouldn't mind acting in open-and-shut cases - heck, I enjoy cleaning up drive-by edits already. So, don't treat this rambling like a withdrawal of the nomination I've been given. What I'm saying is; I'm just going to lay low regarding the whole election for a bit, and simply bask in the fun of atleast having been thought of as a decently valid pick for that position.
Anyways, much appreciated that you'd trust me enough for that - it's really that I'm tired and post-infected that's keeping me from being all the more verbosely courteous. It's not that I don't always try to be. :3 All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 22:03, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
My votes are solely based on Nordic solidarity. If a Norwegian or a Finn is nominated too I won't have to think further about voting. And take your time. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:28, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
By that, I hope you mean to express a timezone solidarity, and not any nationalist or ethnic fervor? :3 Reverend Black Percy (talk) 22:32, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
I have to disappoint. I mean as in Nordic Council. I tend to cheer for my fellow Nordics when Iceland isn't directly involved. It's a cultural and historical thing. Racism has nothing to do with it. When the Nordics have been exhausted, I cheer for Germany. All of this refers to sports, and RW is kinda, sorta ... Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:41, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Well, the Nordic CouncilWikipedia isn't nationalistic or racist in any way, so... if you literally mean that context, then you don't appear to disappoint. I mean, I'm certainly pro-my-region without being anti-anything else. If you do mean it this narrowly, of course. And if this all does "refer to sports", as you put it, then that's also fine - people pick sports teams on any arbitrary basis they like; often the best team close to them. So that's not strange to me. Though I would have to disagree when you say you wouldn't have to think further as long as someone is from a nordic country. There's assholes up here too, you know. ^^ Reverend Black Percy (talk) 22:46, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
Well, the feelings are cultural and historical. Color doesn't enter the equation. And the sports analogy wasn't that far off either. But I know who you are and also the Wombat. I'd pick a Finn or Norwegian any time, if I knew nothing about any of the rest. It would actually be interesting to have a stereotypical Finn as a moderator. X insults Y. Y insults X back. The Finn says nothing but vandal-bins both. :-) Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:51, 20 December 2015 (UTC)
To be clear, since ism's are a very confusing subject in English: I consider myself to be a patriot (even that can be misunderstod), no more, and I love my language, and I have met arseholes from all over the world, but many Icelanders have a fondness for their fellow Nordics - others, to put it mildly don't. My added fondness for Germany is because I spent a few years there. Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 23:00, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

Josephus[edit]

First, you used a link to a subscription-only pdf of a journal and I can't get the whole article. We can't know what it fully says -- just then first page. Second, I provided three, recent references for the scholarly consensus that Jospehus wrote some of the Jesus passages. No one claims all. I majored in religious studies and this topic was well-covered -- and I studied at a secular university and received a secular, religious studies degree. What matters is the current state of scholarship, not what they think at the feethoughts blog. And certainly not a 1912 source!---Mona- (talk) 23:17, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

You're nominated![edit]

You've got the chance for a(nother?) shot at becoming a mod (a modshot?) in the upcoming by-election. ScepticWombat (talk) 06:10, 21 December 2015 (UTC)

So be nice and gentle, and you might actually be elected. You both have my vote, for obvious reasons stated above, but the Right Honourable St. Reverend Percy might want to give me a Christmas present in the form of an answer as how one branch of philosophy is different to another. Glædelig jul Sorte Slyngel (talk) 19:59, 22 December 2015 (UTC)
If you want to run, RBP, you need to accept your nomination. Heads up: you've got ca. 3 days to do so. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 01:20, 28 December 2015 (UTC)
Dear Reverend, do accept your nomination. Don't rob me of the pleasure of voting for you. My vote comes free of any attached strings - but sooner or later I would like to hear from you what non-theoretical philosophy means. I have a very hard time imagining an experimental philosopher surrounded by chemical equipment. :-) Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 20:39, 28 December 2015 (UTC)

E-mail[edit]

Why can't I email you? Carpetsmoker (talk) 21:32, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

That's a good question, pal. Would you like to? I'd much love an e-mail from you! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:33, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
I set Enable e-mail from other users now - please try again. I hope you're sending me something nice. I don't very much want to be yelled at. :3 Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:34, 29 December 2015 (UTC)
Still don't get a "Email this user" under "Tools" ... You mail me at martin@arp242.net and I'll mail you back. Carpetsmoker (talk) 02:40, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
I'll email you. I'll say when I've done so - don't believe any e-mails claiming to be me until I contact you. I will corroborate the information on this page. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:22, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

Min anbefaling er der og nu ...[edit]

... skylder du mig et svar, min ven, hvis dit nye politiske hverv ikke tager for megen tid. Jeg har iøvrigt gjort det samme for det danske, skeptiske pungdyr. Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 16:04, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Jeg har lige sagt farvel til Goonie. Hans bortgang betyder at jeg har to stemmer nu i stedet for én, da jeg allerede har bestemt at vælge dig og pungdyret - det kalder jeg ham kun på grund af hans navn, der er slet ingen modvilje deri. Har du et forslag hvem det skulle være? Personligt har jeg ikke meget for eller imod de øvrige. Og så, igen, du kunne ofre lidt tid på dine vælgere, i mit fald ville det være et svar på spørgsmålet. Jeg irriterer dig kun dermed, fordi der er ret længe siden og du har haft tid. Men det holder jeg ikke mod dig. :-) Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 18:54, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Dagens matematik følger:
\frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}}\int_{-\infty}^{\infty}e^\frac{-x^2}{2}dx=1.
Dette er den standardiserede normaldistribution, integreret fra -\infty til \infty. Spørgsmålet er: Hvorfor må og skal resultatet blive 1?
Du er ja filosof, så du kan sikkert svare, men du kan vente en differentialligning næste gang eller også lidt islandsk bøjningslære indtil, du ved hvad. :-) Jeg håber du vinder valget og glædeligt år. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 20:33, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
Lidt mere matematik. Man kalder den følgende ligning ofte matematikkens skønneste formel:
e^{i\pi}+1=0.
Hvorfor anser mange denne ligning for smukkere end den ensbetydende
e^{i\pi}=-1?
Hvis du er en skønånd, så ser du det straks. :-) Og nu får du fred. Glædeligt år. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:00, 30 December 2015 (UTC)

Haha :D After my last edits, I went away from the computer for some time, and it's now 3AM the night before New Year's Eve and I'm hoping to beat a cold I picked up from my darn pappy after visiting him this past weekend. So I've yet to respond to you, never mind to the math and the grammer tables and stuff. But I will! Just don't treat my silence as any form of communication - I assure you, I am not communicating anything by my silence. I'm just so caught up in stuff right now. Also I saw your endorsement, it made me really happy. I'll honor you with a great reply, but I'm going to start procrastinating even worse if I push myself harder in regards of producing a fantastic 50k symbol reply to all your thoughts and questions. Typical me, eh? Anyways, happy new year Slyngel, I'll see you on the other side! And I'll reply asap! Skål Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:05, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
I'll leave you be for now, but I hold you to the promise of educating me and preferably chatting from time to time. As a threat, I'll leave the full declension of an adjective hanging over you like Damokles' sword, but that would theoretically mean 3(genders)*4(cases)*2(numbers)*3(degrees of comparison)*2(weak or strong) = 144 potential forms - like German, actually. This is sometimes meant to impress foreigners, but first off there are much worse languages than this and second the actual number is much less, perhaps 30-40 separate forms in all. (Strangely enough the latter fact doesn't seem to be of much comfort to those foreigners learning the language unless they have a good background in inflected languages.) So, be scared, very very scared, or just take these writings of mine as something you could use in Trivial Pursuit. :-) Sorte Slyngel (talk) 18:00, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Where[edit]

Where should this go? Proxima Centauri (talk) 17:22, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

I thought it was already in the article? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:15, 31 December 2015 (UTC)
On second thought lol - these are two different articles. Still, I'd suggest an entirely new sub-headline among these, where you add your content. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:20, 31 December 2015 (UTC)

How do you vote? RSVP[edit]

As a seasoned politician you must know how I go about casting my votes. The 1. of January is here, but I can only find the final list of candidates. So if I am to vote for the philosopher and the historian, two areas which absolutely need to be represented, where do I find something to click to cast a vote? (Failure to answer costs the conjugation of an irregular strong verb plus an adjective, but more to the point, also a vote if I don't know how.) :-) Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 18:15, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

I found out and my votes are cast. I'm thinking of setting up a template for the adjectives, just so I have it handy, just in case. Plus, I doubt you've seen Icelandic adjectives declined in full, so it's a tidbit which will never be useful, but as I understand it, philosophy was originally intended to encompass all sciences and the word itself means „love of wisdom“ or something to that effect. Hence you are practically bound to take an interest in everything. If adjectives don't do the trick, would you like me to find the kinkiest verb I can think of? :-) Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 21:09, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

Remember[edit]

All the references before a sidebar don't show up in the <references/>; so adding one in the middle of the page is a bad idea (like this) until this is fixed. Carpetsmoker (talk) 23:24, 1 January 2016 (UTC)

A heartfelt reference[edit]

You have taken the first steps to become a skillful politician, for instance by endorsing almost every candidate for moderatorship. It's a good beginning. You know, of course, about quite a number of politicians who would merit a study. Stalin, obviously, who was skilled although his methods are to be avoided. King Hussein of JordanWikipedia was a grand master of survival. But I'd like to recommend a book, How not to Be Wrong: The Power of Mathematical Thinking by Jordan Ellenberg. You'll find it at bookzz.org. One of the captions is the absolutely correct, but sadly often forgotten statement: Mathematics Is the Extension of Common Sense by Other Means. And Sweden figures in a main role in the Chapter Less Like Sweden which is actually pro-Swedish. :-) Read, enjoy and become the supreme manipulator. I'll leave it to you to figure out how much of this was a joke. :-) Skål Sorte Slyngel (talk) 19:34, 2 January 2016 (UTC)

Pray for me[edit]

I know I said I'd be adding a lot of stuff to the TI page tonite, but I am sick. Nasty bug and all feverish, achy and so tired. I putzed around adding a WIGO and stuff, but the brain can't do much more right now. But have no fear. It will get done -- links are lined up already.---Mona- (talk) 05:20, 3 January 2016 (UTC)

Put some ham on your face and I'll pray for you. Carpetsmoker (talk) 05:23, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
Hope you get better Mona, ham or not! Bongolian (talk) 05:42, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
As a flexitarian, I am off ham for a long while, if not for good. I made a spiral ham at Xmas and consumed quite a bit, with the result that I swear to goat I got sodium poisoning. The water retention was awful and I did a solid week of no meat, lots of working out, and quarts and quarts of water. I'll be eating meat again but have no interest in ham , at least not any time soon. Besides, pigs are at the high end of sentient animals, so I do feel some guilt when I consume them....Geez, all that because you guys goofed around about ham! Ok, back to bed.---Mona- (talk) 06:18, 3 January 2016 (UTC)
I'm curious about the citizen of the People's Republic of Bongolia. I've only made two contributions to the Iceland-article and my fellow Bongolian has corrected the English in both cases but not the substance. (They were neutral, anyway.) So may I ask my fellow Bongolian, where (s)he is from? :-) Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:15, 5 January 2016 (UTC)

I have taken my leave for now but ...[edit]

The title is self-explanatory. I won't be writing much of anything for a long time. But I'm still registered and you still owe me an essay. I do hold you to that. If I write anything for the next six months or so it will be in essay form, and about Icelandic literature. I suspect that this is not high on the average RW-reader's must-to-dos, but when this semester is finished I'll have a lot to say about eddic poems, rímur and all sorts of stuff. The thing is getting down to it. I'm sorry you didn't get to be a moderator, but still, the skeptic marsupial did, so that's half a victory. In peace and friendship. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 20:04, 12 January 2016 (UTC)

As it turned out, I am not completely gone, and am sadly involved in fencing with Mona. Still, you might want to form your own opinion about that and regardless of whether I'm an absolute scoundrel or not, you still promised me an explanation about what there is to philosophy that makes the label theoretical philosophy necessary. I have not been able to imagine any other sort. Cheers. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 17:57, 24 January 2016 (UTC)

For a man of the cloth ...[edit]

I must say that for a philosopher and a man of the cloth, you are remarkably slow in giving promised answers. If an answer to my favorite question will not be given at all, you might just say so — it would be the proper thing to do, and I'll then vanish in a puff of logic. :-) Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 17:32, 6 February 2016 (UTC)

Exaggerating much?[edit]

The way you described that block you make it sound like I'm Dylan Klebold. I clearly said I would never harm them! Debunking the Preacher (talk) 01:28, 31 March 2016 (UTC)

I'd just like to state that I'm not pissing on you from up high here. I just found it disturbing as fuck that you harbor the emotions you claim to do towards those people. I can't imagine that you won't understand my perspective, although you most probably do not share it. I assume, however, that you are lucid enough to understand intellectually why I'd be horrified and concerned about what you posted. Still, I'm not rubbing it in. In fact, if you want someone to talk to, I'm here. I won't even block you for ban evasion (though other editors might); I'm literally all ears if you want to clear some steam online rather than direct it at actual human beings. I challenge you to be frank; I'm literally all ears, assuming it'll lead to any type of fruitful discussion. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:52, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
I don't really want them to die. I just want them to stop picking on me and being mean to me. Except this one, she's nice to me when she's not around the others. But she won't defend me when the others pick on me, and yesterday I told her she should stop trying to act like she's my friend when when she just stands there and watches as her cheerleader buddies pick on me. I regret saying that to her though because I'm new to the school, don't have any friends, and she was like the only person who would talk to me, and I can tell what I said really hurt her feelings. It would be nice to have a friend, even if she associates with assholes. Btw, I am not a "he" lol. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 14:56, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for giving me the benefit of the doubt. Nobody deserves to be picked on, and I've had many experiences with being bullied myself. I think, for what it's worth, that you're being brave by talking about how this affects you emotionally. About how you just want your friend to be sincerely on your side and so on. That is a much more useful, brave, honest and mature thing to say than saying "Here's a list of people I wish would die" (even if said metaphorically). The loss in going in way too strong, trying to get revenge on people or use the words you did like that is that you deprive yourself of the chance to tell the story about what was done to you. It just looks like you might as well be the bully (though, I do believe you). You have one thing you can't ever let them take, and that is your victimhood. It may seem like the only way out is to be forced to step down to their level, but in doing so, you lose the one thing that proved your point all along - that you're actually a nice, caring person who is never out just to hurt others. How bad their actions are is proportional to how good of a person you are. I mean, bullying Hitler is hardly undeserved. But bullying a person who couldn't bully back even if they wanted to... If you are that person, you gain the power to literally decide how bad their bullying was. So you see, you can make them pay. But not at their own game! And that victimhood is the one thing the bullies can never claim for themselves. Cherish the fact that you're actually not an asshole deep down. In doing so, you prove the fault in what they did to you all along. I'm not saying, sit there and take it. I'm saying an eye for an eye will make the whole world blind. And when you are the victim, don't be fooled into acting like the aggressor - that will only cost you your right to tell it like it really was and be believed. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:39, 31 March 2016 (UTC)
Hey, I thought I would tell you, something really surprizing happened today. I was at lunch, sitting by myself as usual, and the nice one (my friend) came and sat with me along with one of her friends, and her friend told me she was sorry that they had been picking on me. I guess my friend really does care. But I kind of feel bad because she was one of them on that list I posted. I don't know if I should trust the other ones though after they were mean to me since winter, or if I should forgive them if they really are going to be nicer to me. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 01:38, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
That's great news! Now imagine how hurt she would've been if she'd known you were on the web posting burn book-esque lists of them. Who would win in that scenario, especially if she - as you put it yourself - really does care? You have to stop posting that stupid list here, period. I'd love to chat with you and I'm totally supportive when it comes to you not being bullied, but I'll be forced to cease communicating with you if you keep harassing the site with that list. In return, I don't mind talking to you about this and even sharing in your joy when things go better for you. Will you do this with me? Thanks in advance. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:50, 1 April 2016 (UTC)
Yea, lol, I'll stop posting on wikis and forums that they deserve to burn to death, I don't think it's in my best interest to do that moving forward. She was telling me that her friends really aren't bad and that I should try out for their team and that nobody would pick on me if I were one of them. I don't know how I feel about that because I've never been into anything like that before, but it'd be ironic if I did because then I would be on that list next year.

No need to worry, the sickroom won't be much bothered[edit]

I've exchanged extensive -- very extensive -- email with FCP. He admits he's rightwing -- he just says not as much as I probably think. That's why I was not pleased with the way he handled Sorte Slyngel -- even after he finally agreed Sorte was out of bounds, he was so timid in his remonstrations it was laughable. As I told him then by email, it's because he finds it "painful" to impose a sanction on another rightwinger.

As for GG, if you don't understand that Gamergate is a large enclave of far-right assholes, you are clueless. The same cohort overtook the Hugo awards. They continue to harass women and cause a great deal of trouble. The same bloc of sociopathic misogynists populates the online and off-line worlds in numerous contexts. And FCP has sympathy for them.

Additionally, neither FCP nor any of the mods give a rat's ass that Arisboch prances around here, and has even been mopped. Some weeks ago, in the Saloon, some said it's fine if banned or binned accounts return, because they'll get banned and binned again if they commit the same behavior. If you see no problem with that, if you think having coop cases mean jack shit because a person sanctioned by the community is literally invited to simply create a new account, well, I cannot fathom such thinking. FCP certainly sees no problem with it.

I will sporadically edit. But, for the reasons I left over two months ago, I do not regard this as a site where I can expect to fit in comfortably with the crowd. No one rose to demand that I be treated with respect when the rubber met the road, and I now realize that will never happen here. Arisboch joined a chorus of off-site vile cretins encouraging people to contact my adult son, as well as his neighbors -- with contact information published -- to tell them foul lies about me. And now he's not only welcomed back, he's got a mop.

Finally, I'm not here to make friends at this point. This site is sick. A "mob" that likes this status quo is not a mob in which I expect to make friends. I'm here only for the occasional edit and, as I feel moved, to hold up a mirror to the sickness. But don't worry -- those of us who see the sickness either leave (because some have actually become sick from what goes on here, and I do not mean myself), or we greatly reduce our participation. This allows the sick to continue as they please in contented quiet and I will only intermittently be interfering with that.---Mona- (talk) 20:25, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks for filling me in a bit, though your sour tone isn't really necessary. I'd have wished you would have written this text more with me in mind; this reads like a monologue, and that's not great. A part of my point is that I can't mirror you perfectly; don't write that off as anything but the sober fact that we're two different people and that we should approach each other with respect and a willingness to not hog the mic, not with riled up pet issues and demands.
I'll be brief.
1) I blocked myself out of that idiotic block log conversation because I won't let you act so trivially as to push away a friend of yours. And the other way around, you shouldn't fool yourself into thinking that I'm some kind of enemy of yours. I'm not, and you know that, Mona. I was hoping for a "Hey Rev, glad to see you active!" - if nothing else, just before all the swearing broke out. I'd have greeted you back, you know.
2) I haven't followed the whole Arisboch and Avenger thing. I have ADHD, and I don't follow that stuff so well. So excuse me if I'm not starting from a position of indignation, and if I really do not know much of the stuff you go on about (quite possibly very plausibly and correctly - what the hell do I know? Besides the fact that I don't have the literal energy to listen to angry people, sometimes even if they're right).
3) I haven't read those e-mails with FCP myself. And you don't need to lecture me on GamerGate. I'm anti. Relax, Mona. The thing that I reacted to was calling him someone who prioritizes friends and who disregards community votes. In my experience, he's maybe the nicest person on this site to people he's never met, and he's always been a pillar of the "democratic process" here on this site. As far as I've seen, and again, I haven't seen a lot of other shit if there is any, because I have ADHD. Deal with it.
4) You talk about sickness and so on in a way where I get you on some points but not all. This isn't me fightning your version or whatever, I've just always been able to agree well with most editors here, you included. And I want to keep things that way. You may not be out to make friends. But if you're here to keep friends you already made, I'm just going to ask you to maybe pace yourself just a little with me, one of the pals you have standing and won't lose unless you make that a point of yours. I'm not belligerent these days, and I don't intend to be either. I know this goes against your fibres but you also know that I'm not out to pull any rugs out from under you. I'm just going to ask you to play nice when I'm around, that's all, if you care. I care. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:44, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
And for the record, I'm just going to say that I'm sickened to my stomach that people would screw with you or your son offline. You know that I think this but it can't be said enough. I think you can be brave and stuff too, you know. You can also be a bulldozer which doesn't always make me feel so great. But I think you're a good person, for what it's worth. Just don't say I'm parts of problems before even greeting me and showing that you have an ear over for my viewpoint too, if you do. That saddens me when you don't. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:15, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
@Mona: Perhaps I should tout my apparent "right-wing" and "pro-Gamergate" credentials to KotakuInAction etc. I'm sure they'd be surprised.
As someone who tried to reduce the genuine harassment you faced, I'm very sorry that you think I'm an enemy. I truly believe that you currently fail to distinguish disagreement and harassment on the topic of Israel and Palestine. I wish you a happy life; goodbye.
@RBP: You're not too bad, yourself. Good to know I'm a friend! =) FᴜᴢᴢʏCᴀᴛPᴏᴛᴀᴛᴏ, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 00:37, 4 April 2016 (UTC)
"I'm very sorry that you think I'm an enemy." That's not what I think, nor did I imply it. What I know is what I experienced. And that was a ton of vicious harassment from Arisboch via KF, Sorte here, and Castaigne also here. It was overwhelming, especially following on the heels of the KF shit that touched my personal life and family.
Nobody gives a goddam fuck that Arisboch is right back here, parading around with a "Who, me?" shtick you and others indulge. thern there's Sorte, I had to pull your teeth to get the mildest of remostration to Sorte from you, and even then, you had to put on this show: "Now, there are two sides, and Mona did stuff as well, but you, Sorte, are a wee bit worse." That was and is bullshit. I simply did not carry on as he did, not even close.
Then there's the preposterous crap about how we can't use "circumstantial evidence" to enforce a ban or bin, with the result that banning and binning turns into a goddam joke. And Arisboch, Avenger and all sorts of BoNs are perfectly free to just make beelines to where I edit and bug the shit out of me, and there's not a goddam thing I can do, including protecting the pages or prohibiting them from voting on edits at the talk pages. *I* violate the rules if I do any of that. Fuck. That. Shit.
Rev says he has ADHD and didn't follow any of this. Fine, but then let's not go into petulant fits here on his talk page and in the friendly blocks about how he's such a good friend of mine. When Sorte, Arisboch, and Castaigne were harassing me, well, I did not see a whole bunch of friends rushing in supportively to make these cretins stop it. No, what I saw was Corrupt User proposing in the first Sorte coop case that *I* also be sanctioned. Christ on a goddam crutch, where was everybody -- all my supposed "friends" -- to tell him that was fucking bullshit?
No, FCP, I do not regard you as an "enemy." It's worse than that. You are timid to the point of spinelessness, and also unable or unwilling to see that rightwing people online can be very obnoxious, and that no two groups are worse about it than Gamergaters and Zionists. You, and almost everyone else at this site, flatly refuses to do anything meaningful to protect good people, people who make quality edits, from these harassing assholes. That's not an enemy, but really, it may as well be. It's a combination of pusillanimity with a sprinkle of blindness. I can respect an enemy; I do not respect that.---Mona- (talk) 04:21, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Please don't leave[edit]

Seriously. We have already lost too many good editors to internal fighting about shit like this. We need you.--JorisEnter (talk) 20:42, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

When did he say he was leaving?--Owlman (talk) (mail) 20:46, 3 April 2016 (UTC) 20:46, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
He blocked himself for a long time. Seems like he's getting fed up with this already.--JorisEnter (talk) 20:52, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
He's done that before so I wouldn't be too worried.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 21:16, 3 April 2016 (UTC) 21:16, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
I appreciate the concern, guys. And don't worry Joris, pal, I'm not leaving. And Owlman - my buddy - this is actually the first time ever that I've blocked myself on RW. I did take off for a month though when the shit was at its maximum, late January this year. That pushed me away for a month. But regardless. Boys, I'm not leaving. The ironic part is that Mona is my friend and we've done a lot of great collaboration on this site, and I also consider FCP a very good friend of mine on this site... I was just sucked into the middle of a bunch of bullshit regarding Arisboch or GG or whatever-the-fuck that was all about. I decided to just step out of the conversation for a moment since, let's say, emotions were running high for some or most people involved in the discussion I entered. And I didn't deserve to be barraged by that, nor want to be barraged by that, so I took a step back before Mona did something dumb like literally categorize me as some part of some kind of problem, for which I had no context, although me and her are actually buddies. One of those situations where you could tell people were about to torch brigdes in a completely uncalled for way, so I just took space. No hard feelings directed at anyone, Mona included. Anyways, thanks for the concern guys - I know I'm pulling my weight around the site and it means a lot to me to get validated by you guys when you take time to make sure I remember I'm valuable here and that I shouldn't take shit. Which I won't. Since my return to the site post-January, up to earlier today (before I had to block myself), it's just been so awfully nice to contribute to the site. I've gotten a lot done in that time and there's been no drama. That's the dream, boys. That's what I want to keep contributing to. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:30, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
"The ironic part is that Mona is my friend and we've done a lot of great collaboration on this site, and I also consider FCP a very good friend of mine on this site" Look, Rev, then you should not get all snippy in the block dialogues when I'm snarking about Sorte or pissed at Arisboch. If you know next to nothing about those issues, stay out of them. You say we're friends. Well, you were NOT THERE FOR ME when I needed friends last January. Almost no one was. Read the most recent entry on my user page. Consider that Arisboch is waltzing around here as brazen as fuck (telling me today that I'm "paranoid" when everyone with 2 IQ points knows it is him), and no one will do anything about it. I submit, Rev, the problems this site has are not located in my naughty language. I am very, very angry. I swear when I'm this angry. I dislike being angry, and that's why I took a break. I'll be staying away from here quite a bit, because I'm so very angry -- again. You people just DO NOT GET IT. Read my user page -- until you and others GET IT, this place will continue to be very sick.---Mona- (talk) 04:32, 4 April 2016 (UTC)

Coop case vote[edit]

You previously stated in the coop that you'd make a decision based on evidence and a list of reasons why the accused is guilty. That evidence has now been laid on the table in the coop, and you can now decide based on the evidence presented. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 02:08, 5 April 2016 (UTC)

This is a late reply, but I hope you took the time to see how I voted and why (reason given in my vote). All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 22:49, 6 April 2016 (UTC)

Mothball[edit]

You're a ninja... Use it! :) The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 02:57, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, will do buddy. I plan on going through all the Conservapedia articles and making sure the nav and mothball is set correctly (which also includes making sure the nav is absent from pages where it breaks formatting). I'm doing my part! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 03:09, 1 April 2016 (UTC)

Can I just say[edit]

I really like the religion sidebar now. Dreams indeed. :) Herr FuzzyKatzenPotato (talk/stalk) 01:16, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

Thanks a lot, buddy! As it stands now, I wrote the current snark on a good portion of the most popular navbars. An operation I undertook after being hit by how humdrum most of the old texts were and so on. I'm probably the most happy with the text I wrote for the current religion sidebar, evolution sidebar, science sidebar, creationism sidebar and economics sidebar. They're all pretty funny, in my opinion. Check'em out! Anyways, much appreciated! :D Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:42, 3 April 2016 (UTC)
Oh, and the pseudolaw, law, sexuality and philosophy sidebars were all written by me too. I think I nailed them ^^ Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:05, 3 April 2016 (UTC)

TIs on the warpath[edit]

They're doing their paranoid thing in comments at The Intercept, and my friend Kitt linked to our TI article in the course of his angry arguing with them. I jumped in a bit, and one of them is threatening to "expose" the article on his youtube program and take it apart etc. If you have an idea who it is and what show this is, and if you could catch it, that would make a fun edit to the piece.---Mona- (talk) 01:48, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Hi Mona! Glad to hear from you in more happy terms than before. That means a lot to me. Thanks for the heads up - you're doing a moral good by trying to help stem the shitnami wave of mentally deranged crankery these people are trying to infect the web with (doing their best to deceptively lure in other poor sufferers of various fantasy prone mental illnesses into their little world of fractal wrongness). I'm a little hung over today, and as a fairly moderately stricken adult ADHD sufferer myself (who is able to have a dignified life at all thanks to the medicinal amphetamine that these cranks, the Church of Scientology and other anti-psychiatry asshats oppose for no good reason whatsoever), I've learned not to promise to get around to doing anything in particular, as that normally just makes me feel suffocated instead of inspired. So, in order to instead try to get inspired to polish up the article further and so on, I'm not going to pledge to do anything at all with it. Hopefully, this childish attempt at reverse psychology will work on my round-the-clock hyperfocusWikipedia. All the best, your pal Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:45, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
I completely get that. The pressure of feeling I "had" to write something made me stop blogging and is why I don't look for writing work in outlets where I'm well-connected. I simply do not want the "have" to do it. An open-ended situation where I only write when and what I wish to is conducive to my own mental health. Take care.---Mona- (talk) 00:31, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Previous posts[edit]

There's no chance of anyone finding those malicious posts I made is there? Reason I asked is because my friend talked to the other girls and they not only stopped picking on me, but now they're being nice to me and I feel guilty for posting that. What about Wikipedia, they oversighted it, can anyone see that over there despite it being oversighted? Debunking the Preacher (talk) 12:48, 12 April 2016 (UTC)

Once something is oversighted only admins can see it. 85.234.92.172 (talk) 14:50, 12 April 2016 (UTC) (Sophie)
Hi, glad to hear back from you! I'm so happy to hear things worked out for you with your new friends - you proved a lot by deciding not to take the path of revenge and instead be true to yourself. Big internet high five. I'll look onto making sure the stuff you posted is permanently deleted by handing the case over to an experienced tech. In doing so, it's not impossible that they ban your account too, although I'm willing to pitch in my two cents that I think all should be forgotten and forgiven as long as the crap is permanently deleted. Anyways, I'm stoked to hear that things turned out well in the end. Being a good friend to people rules - cherish that. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:53, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Yea, my best friend (which is how I see her now) said the reason the other girls were treating me that way is because they thought I was stuck up and didn't want to be friends with them. I guess I can see how they felt that way because I was always the quiet one and was considered to be a nerd by the popular people at past schools, so I probably showed little interest in them. So to have these girls be nice to me and want to be my friend, it makes me smile. They want me to be on their team next year even. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 23:58, 12 April 2016 (UTC)
Someone 'being quiet' is a really lame reason for picking on someone. But wishing harm on anyone is never the answer. Most human conflicts reduce to people forgetting that their perceived enemies are also just people like them. 142.124.55.236 (talk) 00:23, 13 April 42016 AQD (UTC)
But is there really any reason for picking on someone that isn't lame? It's all water under the bridge now though because they're nice to me now and I don't hate them anymore. It's just hard to wrap my mind around the fact that my best friend is a cheerleader when I always thought cheerleaders and school athletics in general were stupid, and it's even harder to wrap my mind around the fact I will probably be one this fall. I'm a book worm and a computer nerd. In my old town I used to hang out with a small circle of friends at the library, and this one guy was a real science fanatic, that's how I knew about RW. They're going to think "damn, she really changed" seeing me on Instagram wearing a cheer uniform, but haha, I really won't change. Just made new friends was all. At my old school a cheerleader used to sit in the seat ahead of me on the bus and I used to spit gum in her long hair, that's how my relationship was at my old school with the popular kids. Hope some of those losers find out I'm a cheerleader at my new school. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 01:48, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
There really is no defensible reason to pick on someone at school. I think 142 just meant to emphasize that just because no reason qualifies as good enough, bad reasons can still be of differently bad quality. And you "being quiet" was, in your defense, an exceptionally thin reason to do something to you that isn't acceptable no matter how you look at it. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:58, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Indeed. All such 'reasons' are rather lame, but some moreso than others. 141.134.75.236 (talk) 02:05, 13 April 2016 (UTC)

Hah, I knew it! For what it's worth, I think it's sort of witty in a way. And it's fine - I actually find it a little endearing now. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:23, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
Honestly, I made the account expecting a fight, I was surprised when you were nice about it. I have a long history (going back to middle school and I'm in 10th grade now) of trolling Wikipedia and have lost track of how many times I've been blocked/hardblocked/community banned/mistaken for a school and been schoolblocked/threatened with ISP contact/etc under different names and IPs. I've been blocked here a few times too. And Conservapedia. And Metapedia (lol at them). And other wikis and forums. I guess I should probably stop that cause it isn't nice. I guess I should probably stop making fake Facebook accounts to troll cheerleaders and other jocks too since they're my friends now. Seriously, I promise to stop the trolling and be a good girl from now on. I realize now trolling makes me not any better than the bullies, and I don't want to ve one of those cheerleaders who bully people. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 19:27, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
But seriously, you have no idea how nice it was to have someone actually listen to me for a change. Thank you. If you'd have not done that I'd probably still be on a trolling spree. I probably wouldn't have been so quick to forgive those girls if it weten't for your insight too. Again, thank you for that. I wish more people were as understanding. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 19:40, 13 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm genuinely touched by your words, but I'm no hero. You're the one who made all the right decisions. You took me up on my offer to actually talk real talk instead of having the trolling continue. You spoke sincerely and you payed attention to what I said. That's not about my words, that's about what you chose to do in light of them. The fact that you also decided to "come clean" about your past as an active troll was also your own choice, it wasn't coaxed out of you by anyone. Regarding that, I can only really say one thing, which I believe you'll agree with - you're in 10th grade now. Your trolling goes back to middle school, as you put it. The one thing that is inevitable in maturing as a person is that it's no longer hard to disagree with the choices that one made when in middle school. If you actually quit entirely or not is up to you, and it's not something I could prove or disprove that you'd done in any case... what matters is your internal dialogue with yourself regarding this. Will you, as a woman, close chapter on patently unproductive habits you formed in middle school, as a girl. That's the meaningful distinction here, and nobody can tell you what do with it - the power to make that decision is yours alone. However, I hope you don't feel the need to stick around in that playpen, the one you set up for yourself essentially when you were a child. You've clearly outgrown it these days, based on how well you've handled all this, anyhow. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:29, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

So, RBP, I have a question for you. That girl at my old school I used to spit gum in her hair, I sas thinking, it was really kind of a rotten thing for me to do because she never really did anything to me personally, I just did it because she was a cheerleader and most cheerleaders, I always thought, are mean. But now I kind of feel bad about it. I don't really know her, but I know her name and I know she has a Twitter account (which I used to troll anonymously), do you think I should send her a message from my real account and tell her I'm sorry for doing that every day last year? Debunking the Preacher (talk) 00:17, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

One should always follow the path of the wise. The wise have led generations to wisdom themselves. When confronted with a problem such as this, the proper course of action would be to seek the advice of a learned and talented individual. A person who knows all of the complex and intricate details of interpersonal relationships, why they so often fall apart, and the proper and correct way to clean up the messes that they have so sadly left behind. So, my fellow skeptic, chart your waters and pursue the truth, not from a simple honest worker who does his best, but from those who understand the issues which have so brought you here. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 00:24, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
All I can say is this - just as the more thought out a strategy to hurt someone is the more malignant it is, the more thought out a strategy to apologize to someone is, the more caring and righteous it is. The gum thing was stupid but it was an act in relative haste, it wasn't an expression of a long term plan to destroy that girl, I don't think. That was one instance of acting in emotional intent with haste. I mean, while you did it repeatedly, it's also obvious that you settled for just constantly doing something childish (rather than masterminding and executing some intricate scheme to hurt her). I'm just going to suggest that you, this time, do the opposite in terms of acting rashly. If I were you, I wouldn't apologize on Twitter. I'd convert this into a chance to actually do something beautiful, to prove to both yourself and to the person you wronged that - regardless of if they accept your apology or not - you've proven both to yourself and to anyone that ever asks that you can and will expend more thought on an apology than on an offense. I'd take time on that. Maybe do something cliché like flowers? Write a hand-written letter? Apologize in person? Sounds stupid and far-fetched perhaps, but the point is that going through extra hoops to try to set things straight is never counted against you. That's the sign of a person who does more right than wrong, even when all their wrongs are tallied up against them. Consider clearly showing that you went the extra mile to set things straight, as much for you as for her. That's my two cents. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:40, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
I could also add that including the utter unfairness and silly reasoning behind targeting her specifically (just for being a cheerleader) as part of the apology is always a better idea than just going for an "I'm sorry". The definition of someone who has understood how and why they did wrong is that person being able to lay out in brilliant terms how and why their previous actions were indefensible and arbitrary. That's called owning up, and it's not about debasing your own character - it's about vindicating your current self by taking tone against past wrongs. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:51, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
I like this idea. See, I don't know where she lives, but I'm thinking if I stuff an envelope addressed to her inside an envelope addressed to her coach at the school maybe she'll give it to her? I have this silver chain my mom gave me a few years ago, it's not priceless to me, but it's pretty and I wear it every day. I'm going to polish it really nice and send it to her with a nice card telling her I know it was wrong to pick on her like that, that Z i should have known better as someone who has been picked on myself, and that I'm sorry. I think she'll know I'm being sincere. I'll probably never see her again in person, but I'm sure it will mean a lot to her. I know it meant a lot to me when the people who picked on me apologized to me. Debunking the Preacher (talk) 01:01, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
The important thing is that you really connect with your own feeling of wanting to do something positive and mend your ways. And the way to do that is to spend time and effort figuring out and putting together something that's not intended for yourself, but for that person you wronged. And I think you've hit the nail on the head regarding doing so here. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:05, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm also going to add that the downside to a fast "drive-thru" apology is that it is contingent upon the reaction of the other person. If they don't accept it, you're screwed. But the beauty of the truly reflective, personal and genuine apology is that it is in fact not contingent upon how the person being apologized to reacts. The fast apology is a request for the other person to waive charges against you. The deep and sincere apology that truly showed your colors is something you made for the purpose of making someone else happy. And the inherent niceness in that can't ever be taken away from you by anyone else. The resounding apology proves itself by your thoughtful actions. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:13, 14 April 2016 (UTC)
So here's what I'm thinking about doing. I'm going to send her a nice card and the chain like I said. I'll get a pretty one that is blank inside and write a nice, thoughtful apology to her inside, and my phone number. Depending on how she reacts and if it's okay with my parents... My old town is in Missouri, which is quite a drive from Kansas, but nothing insane that will take days. I have family who still lives there whom I could stay the night with. This summer, I could bring my best friend along (if she'll come), I could show her my home town, I could introduce her to my old friends, and we could get something nice for Chelsea (the girl I'm apologizing to). Do you think that's too extreme? Debunking the Preacher (talk) 02:32, 14 April 2016 (UTC)

I'm confused by your edits. Are you saying if something has a neurological basis then it is NOT a mental disorder? ‎— Unsigned, by: 50.137.18.81 / talk / contribs

Don't all mental disorders have a neurological basis? >.> 142.124.55.236 (talk) 23:53, 22 April 42016 AQD (UTC)
Exactly. This sentence on the ADHD page is a contradiction: "ADHD is not a mental disorder and there is evidence of physical changes in the brains of people with ADHD." It needs to be changed.
@142 Ultimately they do, of course. I'm no substance dualist - we are our brains and so on. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:07, 23 April 2016 (UTC)
@50 Hello! I now see what your point in making the edit was, and as such, I'm owning up to the honest mistake I did in reverting you.

Sorry, I couldn't resist coming out of hibernation for a little bit. What does activity really measure except perhaps a correlation between time in front of a computer and the number of contributions, each of which could actually be one syllable. I hate to be a bore, Reverend, but I noticed this doing one of my few rounds. And you still owe me a theoretical explanation about theoretical philosophy. That hasn't vanished, unless your word means something other than word does to other people. Or is this an East Scandinavian phenomenon? Don't hurry, it's time for, well, hibernation isn't the word, it's spring. But a long sleep anyway. Skål Uppivindinn (talk) 20:32, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Calculus[edit]

Hi, Reverend! From my reading on the history of science and mathematics, the rudiments of what we now call calculus has been around for quite some time. You can think of a seed being sowed. By the time Newton and Leibniz, its time has definitely come. Think a plant germinating. Is that clearer? Nerd (talk) 00:56, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Hi, Nerd! (That sounds wierd lol). It's clearer now, I think. Appreciated! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:35, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

Drumpf[edit]

It's not the section itself. More that it's opened the floodgates to a lot of ad hom attacks. It is partisan and petty, and should be cut. Plutoniumboss (talk) 15:34, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

But I thought RW was all about being partisan and petty? I don't think it should be cut out entirely, but it could possibly be shortened. I'm not doing much to the Trump article, and he's the only candidate who's article I've done anything to at all, so I'm editing his article like I'd edit any RW article. And I think what I wrote for the section, sources and all (including tweets from Trump) is fun and trivia-y and should be in the article. Just my two cents, it's the mob that decides in the end. But I know I don't like that neutered version that the section was getting changed into. That's for sure. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 10:31, 14 June 2016 (UTC)
But I thought RW was all about being partisan and petty? And I wouldn't have it any other way.❤ However, Trump has a way of bringing out the the worst in his opponents. This sort of stuff feeds into the persecution complex surrounding the Trump campaign, and I'm cagey about that. Don't sink to his level, let him hang himself with his own words. Plutoniumboss (talk) 16:27, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Your editing on Rome Viharo[edit]

Hello Rev,

I'm assisting a writer for a tech blog, and we are doing a story on Rome Viharo. You're the most recent editor on his article and I have a number of questions about the sourcing. I'm trying to track down what happened here and want to hear your side of the story, but it's difficult with the sources you're using on the page. Would you mind if I ask you a few questions here?

104.207.149.51 (talk) 05:28, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Don't you think you should be telling him the writer and the tech blog so he can verify? Hipocrite (talk) 20:57, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
That's what multiple people thought. He still hasn't bothered to do this - instead, he posted the same stuff (as ServiceIP) on Leuders's talk page.--JorisEnter (talk) 22:19, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Trump[edit]

Part of me wishes I lived in Sweden so I could, for my own amusement, observe (from afar) the absolute insanity that would happen when an uninformed, spoiled, egocentric baby becomes the president of the US. But I realize that would be narcissistic, because there I would be, safe in my peaceful little Swedish town while a lot of people in America would be hurting, most economically and some physically. Leuders (talk) 00:55, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Yup, that's the other side of the coin... For me too actually - I do love humanity in general but Americans perhaps especially. The comfort of being out of Trump's direct path of destruction is counterbalanced by the solidarity I feel for your nation and the American people, which is struggling hard at times. I'm not like a religious person, for whom a part of the joy of heaven is to observe from a safe vantage point how the less enlightened crash and burn... For me that's hell, actually. But oh well. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 00:58, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
And since you brought up Sweden (as Bernie does too); if you haven't already, read the summary of the TOW article on SwedenWikipedia. Notably;
Sweden maintains a Nordic social welfare system that provides universal health care and tertiary education for its citizens. It has the world's eighth-highest per capita income and ranks highly in numerous metrics of national performance, including quality of life, health, education, protection of civil liberties, economic competitiveness, equality, prosperity and human development.[14][15][16][17][18]
Also, from the section on Public policy;
Sweden has one of the most highly developed welfare states in the world. According to a 2012 OECD report, the country had the second-highest public social spending as a percentage of its GDP after France (27.3% and 28.4%, respectively), and the third-highest total (public and private) social spending at 30.2% of its GDP, after France and Belgium (31.3% and 31.0%, respectively).[178] Sweden spent 6.3% of its GDP, the 9th-highest among 34 OECD countries, to provide equal access to education.[179] On health care, the country spent 10.0% of its total GDP, the 12th highest.[180]
Or from the section on the Economy;
Sweden is the seventh-richest country in the world in terms of GDP (gross domestic product) per capita and a high standard of living is experienced by its citizens. Sweden is an export-oriented mixed economy. Timber, hydropower and iron ore constitute the resource base of an economy with a heavy emphasis on foreign trade. Sweden's engineering sector accounts for 50% of output and exports, while telecommunications, the automotive industry and the pharmaceutical industries are also of great importance. Sweden is the ninth-largest arms exporter in the world. Agriculture accounts for 2% of GDP and employment. The country ranks among the highest for telephone and Internet access penetration.[133]
I think we're proof that Sanders actually has a platform that could work better than some think. That's an oversimplification, of course, but... Just saying. It doesn't take a fantasy world to have a welfare state that actually works fairly well and doesn't skimp on the freedom, while allowing for private enterprise and so on and on... I live in one. But I'm not saying this to whip out a dick measuring stick and go "my country is better than your country!". It's not about that. But it is a comment on which policies actually work kinda sorta really well compared to, uh... certain others. Also, we're not even the ones that have oil, and we can fund this stuff. (That's Norway. We have like, pine trees.)
Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:04, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
It really does sound wonderful, but I'm stuck with the country of my birthplace for the moment. Yes someday there will be commonsense gun laws, healthcare as a right, and "we're all in it together" social programs in America. But unfortunately not now. A lot of old prejudices have to die first, and that may take a couple more generations. Leuders (talk) 01:28, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
I mean, we're still a nation on the face of the Earth, and the world is round... It does rain here too. But as far as public policy is concerned, I was like "So Bernie's platform is that the US should rank like Sweden does in everything? (See above quotations). Kewl!". And then I hear American right-wing pundits go HIS VISION IS AN IMPOSSIBLE FANTASY and I'm like "Yea... Well, I'm not saying Sweden and the US is the same country here, but I'm literally kicking back in his model nation over here, and like - we do exist, I mean we do pull that stuff off, but what do I know right? *sniff*" So of course I like Bernie, I'm living his dream already over here, so to speak. But I hear ya, and I have sympathy and solidarity with you as well. And you guys kick our asses at lots of stuff too, it's not that... Speaking of you being safe in your "peaceful little Swedish town" - here's my peaceful little Swedish town, UppsalaWikipedia! Scroll and look at the pictures, pretty please... Do a Google image search on "Uppsala" or "Uppsala city" or "Uppsala summer" (or, your favourite time of year). Here's a link if you don't have the energy to type, yourself. I'd love to hear your thoughts on my stupid place of birth! All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:41, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Can you send me a link to some ugly pictures of Uppsala? Maybe there is a section with some trash and urban decay? It can't all look that idyllic. Where did the "bad" kids hang out? Leuders (talk) 14:00, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Well, the worst enclave of the city would probably have to be Gottsunda. There's (for Sweden, mind you) a lot of petty crime there. Compared to any real Ghetto in the US, it's still a boarding school. Here's a google image search. Some burning cars from protests that were held by asshats, some regular pictures from the neighbourhoods...
The street view pictures from Gottsunda are really old, from 2011, (the whole centre has been rebuilt and upgraded since) but I hope this Google Street View link works for you.
Honestly Leuders, take five minutes and just navigate around a bit in Street View. Look at the snapshot pictures people have put up in the bottom of the screen. Clicking on them also transports you around Gottsunda to let you get a wider view (since I picked the most Soviet-looking corner for you to start from). This is a fair respresentation of what shit actually looks like with no make-up or effects, in the worst neighbourhood, on a cloudy day. That's about the worst I have to show you, I think.
(Also, Here's what the new Gottsunda Centrum looks like). Typical interior photo. That's what I have to show you I think...
All the street view stuff from Google is from 2011, and a lot of improvement has taken place in this time. But still, it's a fair view if we're trying to give an honest look and not specifically pick for places that have been renovated since. If you have any energy and time, do navigate around here as well - It's what the centre of my small peaceful Swedish town looks like! I hope you see something you like :) Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:05, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Wow that's amazing. Even the "bad" places look idyllic. For balance, I was forced to Google something bad about Sweden. Leuders (talk) 15:41, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Though, of course, if you want the real story about how it's hell-on-Earth near-ready to collapse, that reality is just a Google search away. Facepalm. Or go to any number of islamophobic/anti-immigration/alt-right/conspiracy/underground news/non-politically correct/anti-feminist/manosphere truth sites, and you'll get a picture painted instantly on how it's worse than Somalia here. :PPPP Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:46, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

They keep calling Sanders a radical, and his plans rainbows and unicorns. Quite frankly, I would classify him as an internationalist centrist, or even a conservative, because he wants the US to learn from other nations whenever they are more successful. He reminds me of the Meiji Era in Japan. He is advocating for the Nordic model, which works quite well, definitely better than what they have in the States right now. Hillary Clinton gave a bizarre response, "We're not Denmark." I expected something better from the former Secretary of State. I do not want to know that Donald Trump has to say, to be honest. Nerd (talk) 01:49, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Yeah, I mean... there's ALL the practical details, which is no small issue whatsoever... But the fact that a country like the one Bernie imagines either couldn't exist, or is a trap that will in fact either provide the healthcare but take everyone's money and freedom, or provide the freedom but fail to provide healthcare is just bogus. Excuse me, but we're fucking slaying it in all the international ratings. And we're way less corrupt - per actual global statistics - than the US. And we have more freedoms by some estimates. And universal healthcare. And - guess what - all that great US culture we love so much (cause we love the US, we're just wondering how you elect people to run things)! Hamburgers, hiphop, the internet and smartphones, all the latest shows on Netflix... And just like you, clothes from H&M and furniture from IKEA (two Swedish companies, remember). Like, it's possible have all that but also be more like Canada and less like Trumpistan. Again, it's not a dick measuring contest, that's NOT the point here. What I'm saying here is directed at the people who don't DARE to dream of a better US, those who will constantly revolve back to saying that Bernie is a dreamer. Well, sure, but I'm living that dream, baby! So what kind of an argument is that really? That's just my point here. It can be done. But poor people in the US want Trump... It's like a South Park episode guys, I'm sorry. But it is. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 01:54, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
What do you mean be more like Canada? Nerd (talk) 02:05, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Well, Canada is sometimes called the Sweden of north america, and conversely Sweden is like Europe's Canada in some senses... We're also far north and speak great english and consume tons of US culture and we play hockey. Stuff like that. Though, as sweet as Canada is, we totally "beat" them too. I mean, we don't have a single technical "ghetto" in the entire nation. Canada does. And so on... But we're small too. And so on. It's complicated. But like, I mean "move closer to Canada [in policy]" as one might mean after having watched, say, Michael Moore's film "Sicko". Reverend Black Percy (talk) 02:09, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
I don't think anyone anywhere is arguing that Sweden hasn't made gun control, universal healthcare, free college, etc. work. I think Hillary et al essentially argued that Bernie was a dreamer for assuming that Congress and the House could implement such extreme changes when they can't even get trivial bills passed. Leuders (talk) 14:11, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Yeah - and that may be a completely valid point. I mean, I wanna make one thing clear - my reasoning isn't based around starting at a conclusion (e.g; Sweden's holy marriage of welfare and capitalism) and then saying "Hey guys lol, this exists (somewhere in the world)!" and then arguing backwards that "anybody who wants the US to get to that place could get the US to that place"... That's not my point at all. (That'd be stupid).
No, the reason I even took that very idealistic stance above was just in response to the people who argue in terms like "US-levels of social inequality, ghetto-inducing city planning and high rates of unemployment is a given of organized society (like it were a law of thermodynamics)", or "Sure, Sweden has good statistics, but they have cameras installed by the Gov't in their bedrooms! The US situation is still the best imaginable cause it's the cost of freedom!" or whatever...
Essentially, I was arguing against a crank (though sadly not fringe) view - in the minds of certain people - of the impossible utopia of anything but the current US healthcare system, though preferably with Obamacare repealed. That is, I was arguing against the trope that an industrialized and free society could not per definition be too unlike the US in social policy (because you got the biggest words, you make the biggest choices, and so on). I mean, in Sweden we're a country of just barely 10 million people, and we've been shaped a lot by what's been happening around us in Europe for the past 100 years (keeping in mind that we were shit poor farmers about 150 years ago, and everybody was leaving for America because life in Sweden sucked intense ballsWikipedia). So I'm not trying to paint an easy path to anywhere for any country. It's not that. But I get fed up when I hear right-wingers in the US chant that "ghettos are the cost of liberty" and having people agree. I wanna reply "No, we don't have those, and we're actually freer too, asshat!Wikipedia" (compare Sweden to US).
Though as far as economic freedomWikipedia goes, the US wins out - at a score of 7.73/10 (Rank #17) and 76.0/100 (Rank #10), respectively.
But you have to realise that Sweden's numbers in the same rankings are 7.58/10 (Rank #29) and 72.9/100 (Rank #18). And that's still with about 50 years of uninterrupted Social Democratic rule! And that's with universal healthcare and no ghettos and clean paved streets. And we don't have school shootings and we have comparatively few homeless people and we're actually needing fewer prisons, not building an industry around them. We don't frack for oil and we never lynched people in race riots. And no death panels for grandma.
Anyway, it's not sane people like you I'm really saying this to; I'm arguing all this against the alt-right crank assholes who think that some type of summary on Sweden's situation is "muslim hordes are overrunning it" and that it's generally a backwards sattelite state (and importantly, that the US government should thus be doing less for fewer, or atleast not much more). Meanwhile, in actual non-crank non-eurabia statistics (e.g. the general societal statistics in TOW's article on Sweden), we're kicking serious ass. Because we have the same people being for private enterprise and universal healthcare - you know, the "welfare capitalist/democratic socialist/centrist/social democrat/social liberal" people. The people that all actually share Bernie's views to 98% (atleast on paper). That's what I was ranting against. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 14:45, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

What it's like to have my head this far up my own ass[edit]

I just wanted to state openly that I don't mean to sound like a huge wheezing dickbag for sitting here lecturing. It's like 4AM in the morning here, I'm cozy drunk, and I'm letting myself skip the long talk and go straight to some conclusions... Just so you guys know, treat this not as written submissions but as a pub conversation in text. All in good sprit and so on. But like, I'm just thinking out loud in a slightly drunken way. So don't get offended or get the impression that I think that I've now summed up or solved any political problem whatsoever. Just saying. Love you guys.

"Shamed by radfems"[edit]

We already link the wikipedia article on "shirtgate", so your edits are redundant. They're redundant AND wrong, because nowhere in your NBC link are "radfems" mentioned, they're only talked about in your imgur link of a tumblr conversation which was shared by Gamergators. That's not "a conspiracy". You're the one engaging in conspirational talk by believing stories about radfems from a gamergate source. Anyway, as I said, we already link the wikipedia article on shirtgate, so disengage from this lame edit war. Typhoon (talk) 15:04, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

I told you the point being made by that source was on his visibly emotional state. Multiple sources confirm it. And prominent feminist Julie BindelWikipedia was the one to draw the line against the victim blaming, describing it as "toxic feminism". And the IMGur link is the least important thing here - it makes a general point on victim blaming that happens to be on the exact topic and happens to have been voted to frontpage. GamerGate isn't mentioned in it or in the comments to it; it's an issue of feminists (such as myself, a voting feminist no less) versus radfems. But this isn't about that. This is about your toxic edit practices. Please get it in your thick head that I'm not a "gator" (you and Ryulong being the only ones to have jumped at your own shadows and called me that at random times; calm and stable editors alike). I am literally anti-GG, and there's sources on this site to back that up. Now fuck off from my talk page. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:12, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
It's extremly hard to believe that you're not a gator when you try to use imgur link from a gator that has the word BTFO in its title as a valid source. Either way, we currently link to wikipedia for more info about "shirtgate". Nothing more is needed. (FunFact: wikipedia also says nothing about "radfems". This is because an editorial from one person is worthless, especially when one can find tons of editorials that disagree with her). Peace. Typhoon (talk) 15:31, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Are you seriously claiming that there was anything in that idiotic "scandal" worth the amount of backlash the guy got? It was a slightly racy shirt for fuck's sake, and it had been a gift to him. There was no justification for any of the attacks against him and anyone who thinks otherwise is certainly a radical something 68.200.26.93 (talk)
Hello, BoN. Who's sock are you? Or are you new here from some gator swamp? I've gotten used to your kind crawling here whenever someone edits stuff related to Gamergate and the "fight against SJWs and RadFems". Typhoon (talk) 16:03, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
I actually don't know what BTFO stands for. If it is actually some kind of "gator" lingo, then I will gladly remove that Imgur link - it was only meant, like images can be for example, to elucitate a point on victim shaming. It is not by itself of any import. Saying that "nothing more is needed" is not up to you to determine. And again, this isn't about the particular edits to the Dawkins article - I've stopped re-inserting your reversion, for now. Partially because I won't stoop to enabling you to edit war on yet another front. This is about your toxic edit practices. Prepare to stand for all those poor choices you've been making at the expense of others and this community. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 15:34, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
As I've said, we already linked to the Wikipedia article on this "controversy", and everyone was OK with that for a long time now. This argument was created by you on your quest against "radfems" Typhoon (talk) 16:03, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Calling it "MyWikipedia quest" against wrongs in the world, however minor is a warped nonsensical phrasing of my aspirations as a meaningful contributor to this site, and as a feminist. And I might as well repeat once more that the IMGur link was a frontpage item that I referenced to make a point about the concept of "asking for it". It was not vital even as an example of that, and I still don't know what BTFO stands for. If it's a GG acronym, I support purging it from the article entirely. Just for the record.

Giving out Coop Notices to those directly involved in a coop case is not "canvassing", if anything it's the duty of the coop starter. Per the coop rules and recommendations;
"Use {{CoopNotice}} to inform the user in question, so that they have a chance to discuss their actions here."
Owlman, Nerd and JorisEnter are mentioned by name in the original coop post. Naturally, I also canvassed Typhoon by giving her an equal coop notice. The one person that wasn't mentioned by name, but who had been a target of Typhoon's actions before is Pbfreespace, and I gave him a general link to the coop as I had previously linked him to a discussion that was now moved. It's easy to call it canvassing when the real issue is just getting ahold of all the people Typhoon has been elbowing in the past time. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:53, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
"the user in question," not "people at odds with the user in question." Your dishonesty is as expected as it is repulsive. Hipocrite (talk) 21:54, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
Quite a few people are at odds with the user in question, and for good reason. Good day. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:54, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

Problem of Evil[edit]

I liked what you added to my edit in Problem_of_evil#Satandidit_theodicy re. Isaiah. My edit was missing something, and what you filled in was just what it needed. Peyre (talk) 17:26, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Well, the idea of passing one segment of text off to the next was yours. And it was a good idea. I just polished it up ever so slightly. So credit is yours. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 17:33, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
