I liked your trolling of that faux-socialist server. "What is your political ideology"? "#Trump2020." Nice. Oxyaena Poke me 14:29, 11 March 2019 (UTC)

Admitting when you're wrong is hard[edit]

I was absolutely 100% sure you'd be a terrible moderator. Given evidence to the contrary, I need to reform my views. You've done fine. And I wish to apologize for being wrong, too. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 19:32, 12 March 2019 (UTC)

Well thank you, that was very nice to hear :D --RWRW (talk) 19:38, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
I won't say that I disagree with @Ikanreed, however I do still find some things about your behavior disturbing: you have made no significant mainspace contributions despite my repeated encouragement (e.g., Draft:Philippe Pétain went nowhere), you seem to have a knee-jerk support for conservatives that I've seen on (I think) two occasions, and your logical disjunction vis-à-vis Brexit and human rights (above). Bongolian (talk) 20:31, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
Wait, RWRW, you're doing a Petain draft? Damn, I was going to do that. Mind if I try to work on it? RoninMacbeth (talk) 20:32, 12 March 2019 (UTC)
@Bongolian to be fair I did watch The Sorrow and The Pity after you recommended it and I am still intending on working on it, but yeah my work ethic is somewhat questionable.
@RoninMacbeth Go for it, it might motivate me to help out as well. --RWRW (talk) 20:57, 12 March 2019 (UTC)


Alright, so I added a little bit more information. I won't have much time over the next week or so to help, but I hope it should be a solid enough base to work with. RoninMacbeth (talk) 05:06, 13 March 2019 (UTC)

Its looking pretty good. I'll see what I can add over the next few days. --RWRW (talk) 12:34, 13 March 2019 (UTC)
@DuceMoosolini I moved the article to mainspace. It seems fleshed out enough. Bongolian (talk) 18:17, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
@Bongolian Okay, but why are you pinging me about that? I don't remember ever having edited that draft. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 21:02, 6 May 2019 (UTC)
You made a small edit in April. I should have pinged @RoninMacbeth. Bongolian (talk) 00:22, 7 May 2019 (UTC)


"Logged in everyday since attempting this 'break'"[edit]

Don't worry, you're not the only one. I tried to do two breaks in late 2017, both were over relatively quickly. RoninMacbeth (talk) 16:10, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Ha ha that is good to hear. I just accepted my fate that I wasn’t going to be able to stay away for 2 weeks. —RWRW (talk) 17:29, 9 May 2019 (UTC)


@UnlicensedThinker what's your thoughts on the EU, if you don't mind me asking? --RWRW (talk) 14:13, 12 May 2019 (UTC)

It's a too broad question for a straight answer. Oversimplifying, traveling is a bit more easy (like having a passport was something difficult...); you don't have to change your currency in every state (but unless you live in Germany your currency has lost a lot of value...); bureaucracy and regulations are growing exponentially for being constantly disregarded; citizens have less and less control on how their taxes are spent; every state leader is pro-immigration as long as the migrants goes to another EU state. Thinker(unlicensed) 19:19, 12 May 2019 (UTC)
Fair enough. Seems like a rational view of it. I've always been of the view that the good (easy travel etc) is outweighed by the bad. --RWRW (talk) 11:45, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
I read your essay and yes, although it is focused on UK, most of what you have written applies to the other EU countries. Thinker(unlicensed) 19:48, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Why not just wipe the slate clean with nukes and start over? It would do humanity a lot of good. Dr. Ox quack specialist 20:57, 14 May 2019 (UTC)
Ha all of humanity or just Europe? --RWRW (talk) 10:57, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
All of humanity would be a good start. NekoDysk 11:37, 15 May 2019 (UTC)
and theres me thinking brexit was insane. i hadnt realised nukes were an option AMassiveGay (talk) 11:54, 15 May 2019 (UTC)


You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. (talk) 23:15, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

Are you thinking of forming an exploratory committee to run? nobsI'm all yea'res 18:13, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Lol @Nobs maybe, but before then I'm going to get me a beer.
@71.3 I appreciate the nomination, and I'll ponder on it for a couple of days, but I very likely won't run. I don't think there's much I could offer the Board and I don't think I would enjoy it. --RWRW (talk) 20:57, 9 July 2019 (UTC)
Oddly, it was that video that caused me to turn on Warren. Don't trust anybody who drinks alone (learned that as a child), and certainly somebody whose own husband won't drink with her. nobsI'm all yea'res
