You're sysop now, and KiwiFarms, eh? Interesting, I have a friend who posts there. Oxyaena Harass 08:29, 8 July 2019 (UTC)

I thought Kiwifarms was a) dead and b) terrible. Avida Dollarsher again 09:58, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Not dead, and it is definitely terrible. Oxyaena Harass 14:29, 8 July 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, what "woke" me was FSTDT's page on that domain & me joining the furry fandom. Like I said on my intro, all they do is bitch about trans people. RockfordRoe (talk) 23:38, 10 July 2019 (UTC)

Mike is finally pissed at me

Yay Rockford the Roe (talk) 18:40, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

He's pissed at me too. And I'm a nobody. Somehow I feel validated. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:45, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

About the goat comment

Hi. I noticed you placed an ambiguous comment on my endorsements for moderator section. That's fine, I just want to invite you to ask me any question you might have about your concerns if you have any. Please do so on my talk page if that seems more appropriate to you. If you are not inclined to do so, I will pester you no more. Thanks.Ariel31459 (talk) 19:46, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

I don't remember writing anything relating to endorsements on there, Is Mike impersonating me? Rockford the Roe (talk) 19:50, 9 November 2020 (UTC)
No. Sorry. My bad. It was another user.Ariel31459 (talk) 19:57, 9 November 2020 (UTC)

For your Ken-hunting false positive

Rainbow trout transparent.png Whack!
You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

@McUrist is not Ken. If you had seen his contribs, you would have seen that they're a constructive editor- and a sysop. If he were Ken, he would've outed himself within like, ten minutes of account creation. --Goatspeed. Happy Holidays!🎄CircularREmail2.gifasoning🎄My experiments 18:11, 17 December 2020 (UTC)

You reverted my edits.

You have reverted my edits. Could you please explain why. If I was wrong, could you please explain what exactly was the mistake. — Unsigned, by: Vitafon5 / talk / contribs

The edits introduced red links and whitewashed the subject as actual science when there is still no significant evidence. I appreciate you inquiring about it in the talkspace, but I think this is something that should go on that article's talkpage; and please remember to sign your comments with ~~~~. Rockford the Roe (talk) 15:47, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

“You reverted my edits” mark 2

I wonder why you reverted my edits on Encyclopedia Dramatica, even though the site has been known to make propagandistic articles and has something of a nationalist bent similar to 4chan (ED is just 4chan in wiki format) and has occasionally glorified Neo-Nazis. 2600:6C50:617F:CDBF:6C36:7EA3:AA20:33A (talk) 08:47, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

I’m also not sure why those edits were reverted, I’ve reinstated them. If Rockford did have a reason for reverting them, he should have explained what that reason was in the edit summary and not just clicked rollback. Christopher (talk) 09:12, 27 February 2021 (UTC)

this is listed as a talk page so i think im doing this right,not sure though

When you deleted the super straight page you deleted all logs of it being made. I was wondering if you could atleast give me the page text? I dont know why you felt the article was unnesesary,the super straight movement is alarming and should be talked about in its own page. — Unsigned, by: FuggoGlup / talk / contribs

It's MediaWiki doing its thing when new pages are deleted. It's already listed in the Alt-right glossary and the subreddit was created by /pol/ users. Even if it needed to be in the mainspace, it was looking very unfinished and low quality. You can feel free to suggest it on RW:TODO or make a draft page in your userspace. Also remember to sign your posts with ~~~~ on talk pages. Rockford the Roe (talk) 16:53, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Let's say Kendoll and Mikey engage in a sock war

Mikey is under police investigation!? The hell? Gangster Computer God (talk) 17:26, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

It’s something a sockpuppet or meatpuppet of Oliver Smith claimed, I don’t think there was ever any evidence. If he were (it is possible), adding a template to the userpage of a sock of his without any edits wouldn’t help. Christopher (talk) 17:49, 7 May 2021 (UTC)
You're right about that stupid fucking template, but a RL person claims to have filed a report with the Met. I heard they just put another four detectives on the case - got them working in shifts! Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 17:58, 7 May 2021 (UTC)

Quick question

I see you reverted my edit on the talk page of Rage Against the Machine, so I guess I shouldn't have removed that category. Does the "Talk pages of deleted articles" category remain in a page even if that article is later created again? Rabbitseatcarrots (talk) 18:17, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

It was a mistake on my end. PoorlyDrawnRockford.jpeg Rockford the Roe boop my snootpraise Oscar Wilde 18:19, 28 May 2021 (UTC)
No problem, thanks for the quick answer Rabbitseatcarrots (talk) 18:22, 28 May 2021 (UTC)

Try more of a "shots fired first" approach

You mistook Jesuscameback2life4u as a ban-evading sock. Sure, the name seems a bit similar to fundamentalist trolls at first glance, but it doesn't hurt to wait until first contribution. This is similar to months ago of people trying to block anyone with corvid-related usernames due to a troll with a corvid-related username and snagged a legit user in the process. Even disruptive usernames can have a bit of a gray area. Even something like "QHasSpoken" isn't really a ban on sight; just wait for an edit. Try not to rely too much on "behavior patterns". They can be clue but you can never be too sure. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png 🎄LeftyGreenMario!🎄(Mod) 05:41, 20 August 2021 (UTC)


If an entry doesn't belong there, then use to comment it out. Don't just delete it, or the next entry using the "next poll" option will have the votes carried over from the entry you deleted because you messed up the count.

Whether or not you think the video should’ve been there, reverting without explanation then mod-protecting the page was the wrong thing to do. Christopher (talk) 16:55, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
Sorry for ghosting, I was informed by Duce in one of my previous edits that it's not good practice to insert videos like those in articles. I figured Leuci would keep unprotecting the article with their mop to engage with an edit war, so I mod-protected it long enough to prevent it. PoorlyDrawnRockford.jpeg Rockford the Roe boop my snootpraise Oscar Wilde 18:01, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
It is as I understand it (also my opinion) generally discouraged (although a few articles have them). A problem with Youtube embeds though is that they can be a bit... fragile, subject to the whims of both the account holder and the Youtube police. In this case, when we are talking about clips of a show technically under copyright by the BBC that looks like it is not posted on their official channel, it is especially so. PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 18:07, 6 October 2021 (UTC)
You should’ve clicked undo instead of rollback and explained that in an edit summary. It’s how everyone else has to do it. Christopher (talk) 19:49, 6 October 2021 (UTC)

You use to be a Kiwifarms poster?

Shoot. Not sure if you are a troll or not. BeardOfZeus (talk) 00:09, 8 October 2021 (UTC)

I have an account on there (which I'm not gonna share for safety reasons) because I was interested in Christine Weston Chandler's antics at the time. They started to get worse with transphobia and ableism setting the bars to "lolcows" so low that it became laughing at a person's disability or self-identity instead of their actions. For example, people like Ben Garrison and Alex Jones got their own threads for their lunacy that they mocked, but now instead of those people, It's people like Near that identified as non-binary and moved to Japan to contribute to the video game industry. I left way before they started their "discussion" on Near. What broke the camel's back was the creation of Sonicfox's thread after the "I'm everything a republican hates" comment. PoorlyDrawnRockford.jpeg Rockford the Roe boop my snootpraise Oscar Wilde 13:47, 8 October 2021 (UTC)
Oh Ok then. I'm not gonna lie but I have a huge dislike for any one who posts on Kiwifarm. Its not OK to troll anybody no matter if they are Alex Jones or not. But you seem OK as you left before it got really bad. BeardOfZeus (talk) 01:56, 10 October 2021 (UTC)

Hey, why'd you ban me? And who unbanned me? I don't know who this Ken is, or how I'm supposed to prove I'm not him, but if I were a troll, I wouldn't be going through proper channels and making my arguments. I would just mass delete articles. Friedman (talk) 16:42, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

I unbanned you since you have proven me wrong. PoorlyDrawnRockford.jpeg Rockford the Roe boop my snootpraise Oscar Wilde 16:45, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

Friedman Block

Hi Rocky. About the Friedman is Ken thing. I conversed for a bit with them on the Evidence for the historical existence of Jesus Christ page. They didn't seem untoward, overly religious and such. Why do you suspect he is a banned user sock?Ariel31459 (talk) 16:43, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

I don't wanna speak for him, but I heard something falsely flagged me. Seems it was an honest mistake. I'm glad I didn't come off as untoward! Friedman (talk) 16:46, 8 December 2021 (UTC)

Article Revision

Hey, just wanted to make sure, I saw that the removal of the comparisons between the Holocaust and the Ukranian famine of 1932-33 were removed. Just wanted to ask, if I didn't do anything wrong with the edit? Just wanted to clarify since no reason for the revision was given >__>. No offense or anything :^p Genabab (talk)

I felt like the removal of those comparisons were whitewashing atrocities Stalin committed, something that's been a problem lately. PoorlyDrawnRockford.jpeg Rockford the Roe boop my snootpraise Oscar Wilde 03:20, 21 February 2022 (UTC)

Removal of part of the article on potential self/overdiagnosis of autism?

Hey, just wanted to say I was the person whose edit you removed in the ARM page, don't worry no hard feelings. As an autistic here who wanted to spread awareness on the issues as well as what is going on within the community, I am curious on why you removed the edit, considering the sources and how I think it brings up a serious issue going on right now within the autism community. I think the debate within medical communities that mention these issues should be brought up, especially since I have known people who acted entirely neurotypical and never had any major problems with learning or socializing their entire lives were telling me they were autistic only for them to say they were self-diagnosed and only did it because of what they saw on social media while also having large friend groups and acting extremely active with them while entirely ignoring the advice they got from actual medical professionals regarding their potential diagnosis. This has happened to me a few times before and to a few other people I know. Alongside numerous other cases of people on social media increasingly being caught faking their conditions. If you have a reason why you felt inclined to remove it, or could give any suggestions for how I could have edited the page in the future that would be much appreciated.

Fun fact, I was somewhat involved in the show. I joined Ghost's $5 Discord while it existed and he proceeded to call me "The 15-Year-Old pervert".
