Thanks! I've been creeping on here for awhile so I think I know whats up. --RipCityLiberal (talk) 19:46, 17 April 2019 (UTC)


To Whomever bequeathed to me this power: Prepare to be disappointed RipCityLiberal (talk) 16:16, 19 April 2019 (UTC)

It was Oxyaena. You'll probably be disappointed yourself with how little power you've gotten. Bongolian (talk) 00:50, 25 April 2019 (UTC)

Don't put bloody references in Saloon bar posts[edit]

Just do an external link like this. Spud (talk) 16:49, 30 April 2019 (UTC)

My bad. I'm still not great at this. -RipCityLiberal (talk) 16:56, 30 April 2019 (UTC)


you from? You used "bollocks" which gives me an idea but I want to make sure because I thought you were an American. Oxyaena Harass 17:33, 24 July 2019 (UTC)

As my name indicates I hail from Portland (Rip City), OR. But I also consume a lot of British television so sometimes words more common to the UK pop up in my lexicon.RipCityLiberal (talk) 17:36, 24 July 2019 (UTC)


What exactly do you need? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 00:00, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

@GrammarCommie Primarily I need expertise skill. I use this website on a computer at work and a tablet at home, so my ability to do fun things like images and links and shit is greatly hindered (also because computer technology was never my strong suit). But writing is my skill, and politics is my bailiwick. I've been following this very closely and read the whole Mueller Report twice so I'm positive I;m among the 1% of Americans that actually understands the scope. While thinking about this last night, doing a rewrite I think would be important, but I could also see just writing a new article that is literally just the Mueller Investigation, and separating the Trump-Russia connection from it completely (because there is still considerable evidence that the Trump organization has been laundering Russian money for years, unrelated to the 2016 election). But I don't know the ins and outs of how to Wiki properly and I'm generally more low key in my contributions. This would be a major change, and I know I would provide a better contribution with the assistance of someone with more knowledge and a history of contributions. Also because this will definitely get the attention of Nobs, help dealing with that shit will be helpful as well.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 15:19, 25 July 2019 (UTC)
If you started a draft I could format it as needed, as writing extensively isn't my strong suit. (The section in the Owens article was just editing existing information in an angry frenzy.) As for Rob... I can just either ignore him or revert any problem edits. He already has a blatant conflict of interest, so presedent exists should it become necessary. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:41, 25 July 2019 (UTC)

The Mueller Investigation turns up this[edit]


A close up of an awesome, amazing goat's face.

Awesome Award

for RipCityLiberal

Reason: being awesome

I see you're working hard in the article. I hope once it's complete, I can give it a read and try to help such as summarizing why we need to take it seriously and that it has been utterly damning on the legitimacy of the presidency. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 00:19, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

I appreciate the support. I hope only to inspire people to read the fucking report for themselves. RipCityLiberal (talk) 08:04, 10 August 2019 (UTC)

Doxxing White Supremacists[edit]

[1] this is a good thing to do ye but remember that peeps will want to know who did it and if they can find out its not nice for u. i would urge caution on how u act and take care not to expose your identity while disrupting their activity but i do wish u luck.EK (talk) 21:06, 15 August 2019 (UTC)

I was concerned about this too, mainly how to clean the pictures so there is no connection to me. But I'm not skilled enough to do that.--RipCityLiberal (talk) 21:14, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
that is easy enough. remove the exif and re-encode at a compression.EK (talk) 10:35, 16 August 2019 (UTC)


I was referring to trump rather than nobs - I assumed incorrectly that trump was the focus of that discussion, and coke would really explain a lot about trump. there are also a lot claims to him having a coke habit, though there are similar claims to him having a aderall addiction too. cannot vouch for the veracity of such claims though. AMassiveGay (talk) 09:11, 4 September 2019 (UTC)

Trump doesn't do "drugs". But he does do pharmaceuticals, primarily Adderall and diet pills with Cocaine in them. He rails that shit lol--RipCityLiberal (talk) 16:02, 4 September 2019 (UTC)
There hasn't been cocaine in diet pills for close to a century as far as I'm aware. His Coke addiction is strictly Diet®. Bongolian (talk) 16:40, 16 September 2019 (UTC)

2019 moderator nomination[edit]

You've been nominated in the upcoming moderator elections. See the nomination at RationalWiki:Moderator elections/Nominations. Bongolian (talk) 02:39, 2 November 2019 (UTC)


Thanks for the endorsement, it means a lot. Oxyaena Harass 21:47, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

Think nothing of it. We may not agree all the time, but you have the voice that is sometimes necessary to make people pay attention. And I appreciate that.RipCityLiberal (talk) 06:13, 11 November 2019 (UTC)

On second thought[edit]

A certain user who shall not be named just commented on "Tokyo's" talk page accusing them of being Mike. Let's wait it out and see before making any moves. Oxyaena Harass 23:36, 20 November 2019 (UTC)

Can you please supplement the document?[edit]


I live in a conservative Asian country and don't know much of a progressive or social justice perspective on autistic issues.

You're probably Westerner, can you supplement?

I think you know more about this than I do.--BluePink (talk) 05:19, 30 November 2019 (UTC)

You busy?[edit]

Checking in, you've been gone for months. Oxyaena Harass 09:04, 24 April 2020 (UTC)

I have been quite busy with work and the pandemic. But I believe I will be more active soon. I will be venturing to confront the fascists in my home town.RipCityLiberal (talk) 22:05, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
Nice to see you back, dude. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 22:17, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

College Athletes shoud get paid[edit]

"Paid in an education" is a lie. When the NBA said they can't buy out of high school, players needed one year in college, and then college players got tagged over and over with bribes, they are purchasing players. Gol Sarnitt (talk) 06:27, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@Gol Sarnitt No disagreements from me dude. NCAA is a racket, I want all American sports to mirror the UK Football PyramidWikipedia

Squid games[edit]

i forgot to mention this when you brought that show up a little while back in the saloon bar. it reminded me very much of they shoot horses, dont they? its got a tangentially similar premise, but super depressing. AMassiveGay (talk) 20:28, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

@AMassiveGay A fair comparison, It's Always Sunny In PhiladelphiaWikipedia used that movie as inspiration for this episodeThe Gang Dances Their Asses Off I was most reminded of Battle Royale (film)Wikipedia, sprinkled with a bit of Old Boy (2003 film)Wikipedia. My biggest issue isn't with the content, more that people seem to be intentionally not acknowledging the clear commentary on an unfair system. RipCityLiberal (talk) 21:42, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
as i said then, i can only comment from the wikipedia article. i seem to be more into film theory/criticism these days than watching the actual film/shows i read about. film studies at college really killed my passion for thatAMassiveGay (talk) 21:55, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
i can very much understand the frustration of people not appreciating or understanding something in the way one feel it should be. its why your favourite tv shows get cancelled and that life changing book that really speaks to you gets nothing more than 'meh, its ok i guess'. philistines AMassiveGay (talk) 22:20, 14 October 2021 (UTC)

Webp file format[edit]

It looks like you tried to upload a webp file for the Draft:Robert Hunter Biden page. Webp file formats currently do not work on RW despite what the upload page says. You need to convert the file to something else like jpg format. Bongolian (talk) 19:22, 31 March 2022 (UTC)

@BongolianI most certainly did. Unfortunately I don't have the tools to do such a thing on my office computer, where I tend to do most of my editing. It's not an important right now, as I sort through the actual content of the article, but I'll likely reach out to others to assist me with things like that. -RipCityLiberal (talk) 19:39, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
OK, good. Bongolian (talk) 19:56, 31 March 2022 (UTC)
