RationalWiki's 2020 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2021.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

RtH[edit]

By the way; I assume that you know about this page of goodies. Scream!! (talk) 20:16, 21 February 2020 (UTC)
OMG!! I think I love you! RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 14:08, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
Smiley.gif Take it you didn't know about it! Pleased to be of service. Smiley.gif
I'm an ISIHAC addict & recently went to a recording. The whole page is, IMHO, a demonstration of all that's best of British humour. Scream!! (talk) 15:05, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
Nice! Just A Minute & Round the Horne were a large part of my early years & I was the biggest fan of Kenneth Williams. Looking forward to these & News Quiz. Enjoyed that with Sandi, but got out of the habit of listening to it. So you've made my day! RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 16:44, 22 February 2020 (UTC)
You must be (nearly) as old as me. I was weaned on the Goons, Navy Lark and Beyond Our Ken and have preferred radio to telly ever since: "The scenery's much better!" Smiley.gif News quiz is good also but a tad late for me. Scream!! (talk) 18:06, 22 February 2020 (UTC)

Covid-19 WIGO[edit]

Look, I'm not sure why I struck a particular nerve in you, but your vitrol toward me, calling me a "dumbass" was completely out of line. Your claim that the EPA regulations isn't related to COVID-19 is splitting hairs. The EPA removed environmental regulations in response to the pandemic. Instructions on dealing with COVID-19 "News and government policy (except economics and welfare state policies) related to the coronavirus pandemic go to WIGO:Coronavirus" clearly includes your story. It's not economics or "welfare state policies" (to be fair I think it's poorly defined), and it's a story related to the pandemic. Anyhow, this is really nothing to get so worked up about. If you don't like what I'm doing, first, tone your attitude down some notches and.be more respectful. Second, don't direct your angry complaints at me, do so at the policy in the appropriate talk page. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:35, 28 March 2020 (UTC)

If you think the regulations are coming back when the epidemic is over, then the epitaph would appear to be fitting. That's why the story is about the EPA, not CV. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 08:47, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
That's a stretch of an assumption of my beliefs. Regulations were made in response to the pandemic. Who knows if they were going to be made regardless of the pandemic or not, but that's still speculation even if their patterns are predictable. You're basing all this on whether they'll repeal this or not, but I'm sure the virus thing itself has already a legacy beyond its lifespan policy-wise, social-wise, and so on. I don't think coronavirus policy that remains long after the pandemic is over disqualifies it from WIGO Coronavirus. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:31, 29 March 2020 (UTC)
I notice you didn't "take it to the talk page" before arbitrarily deciding to move it. And if you think that because a story has coronavirus in it, then that MUST absolutely be the central theme of the story, then my original assumption stands. Also, I don't care if your feels were hurt. Grow up. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 08:50, 7 April 2020 (UTC)

Your little stunt in WIGO News.[edit]

You seem to laboring under the belief that it's more important to get Biden elected than to assess his weaknesses. Trump's campaign won't make that mistake. They'll throw everything at him, the sexual assault allegations, the Ukraine conspiracies, his voting record, all of it. So dismiss now, but be prapared to suffer for your overconfidence later. Also If you try to cover for Biden on the sexual assault allegations again I'll kick your ass off this site for 3 months, without talkpage access. Just an FYI. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:41, 26 April 2020 (UTC)

You're going to the fucking coop for this, you jumped up little tyrant. You don't get to block because your feelings are hurt, bitch. Plus, it was moved to elections, where it belonged, so your whiny little hissy fit is invalid. Now, kindly fuck off and die. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 15:20, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
PS Enjoy 4 more years of Trump, you Berner piece of shit. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 15:25, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Shit like this is one of the major reasons why I switched from being willing to vote for Biden to being unable to. Because little tribalistic shits like you exist. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 15:27, 29 April 2020 (UTC)
Stop constantly acting like an ass, RoundeTheeHorne. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:20, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Your recent block[edit]

Has been lifted. Someone got trigger happy but I fixed it. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:30, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

I removed autopatrol because you've handled two conflicts poorly and figure your edits need to be monitored. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:41, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
What conflicts has RTH handled poorly? Autopatrol reinstated Scream!! (talk) 19:29, 30 April 2020 (UTC)

Autopatrol reverted. Cosmikdebris (talk) 19:50, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
Also, the prior conflict with COVID-19. I was met with flaming, told RoundeTheeHorne to knock it off especially with the flaming, got met with the unnecessarily snide "don't care if your feelings are hurt. Grow up". Which is not a good comeback. Also, telling someone to "fuck off and die" is completely unacceptable. Don't ever, EVER do that again. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:29, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
"I'll kick your ass off this site for 3 months, without talkpage access." for absolutely no reason at all as a little investigation would have shown.
"which is not a good comeback." For crying out loud "Not a good comeback"!!! What sort of reason is that to censure someone? You're a load of wimps! Scream!! (talk) 21:43, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
That's no "for absolutely no reason at all". That's because RoundeTheeHorne commented out a WIGO on Tara Reade's accusations as "not news" then claimed it was moved to elections, but at the time didn't make any edits at the time to actually move the entry to the appropriate WIGO (it was readded by Oxyaena in the elections WIGO). There's no indication behind the motivation for commenting out the story otherwise, so I think the "I will kick your ass off", while inflammatory, is more justified than the comeback, and this is also not the first time RoundeTheeHorne acted out of line when challenged. As for the latter, when you're requested by someone to stop acting disrespectful, especially by someone who's a moderator, it's generally not a good idea to respond with "I don't care if you're feelings are hurt. Grow up". Hence "not a good comeback". It's generally a good idea to be respectful but especially at what a mod reasonably asks you to do. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 21:57, 30 April 2020 (UTC)
