Thanks for the correction. That was pretty dumb of me. (wp:Muphry's law)   :-)

Hi there[edit]

Hi, no need to yell. I did leave a discussion on the article's talk page you must have missed it. Chill out please.-- (talk) 20:55, 21 December 2014 (UTC)

Well it doesn't look that way to me. You seem to be snowballing Weaseloid's page. No? Scream!! (talk) 21:29, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
The discussion was mainly with him since he hasn't ever edited the article or posted on the talk page - I did leave a comment on the article's page as well, sorry for the confusion.-- (talk) 21:59, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
David Gerard didn;t post on the genetic engineering talk page; you seem to know him and hate Weasaloid and me. Do you think how many slaves a president owned should be on his Wikipedia page, or is slavery not authoritarian? Exiled Encyclopedist (talk) 23:18, 9 January 2015 (UTC)


Figured we need more nonstandard names on the list and other stuff so i nominated you as well. --Miekal 02:28, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

Thanks … I think? Scream!! (talk) 09:18, 14 January 2015 (UTC)

I put that steaming pile of Red-baiting in the Clogs section where it belongs. No need to put it back into the Blogs section, dawg. Space Turbo (talk) 19:34, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

See the note I made on your talk page.Scream!! (talk) 19:36, 21 February 2015 (UTC)

Contact information[edit]

Congratulations on being elected to the 2015-16 RMF Board of Trustees. Please email me so you can get you started. Nutty Roux (talk) 21:24, 27 February 2015 (UTC)


It's a habit I picked up on another wiki where I was - unregulated discussion went at the top and more specific items under their own titles. And thanks. The ever unpresent Westonbirt 20:07, 7 March 2015 (UTC)

thank you[edit]

for your suggestion at Atheism - it worked, though I'd like to get the images larger. And get a lot more of them. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 22:10, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

You silver tongued devil. You could talk me into anything. Which is to say, "let sleeping dogs lie". Thank you again. Carptrash (talk) 22:28, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

Sorry, couldn't find anything on the stuff. Hoping someone else would.


So, what was that about me not copying others' "sigs"? You mean signatures? Thank you. Dandtiks69 (talk) 22:29, 10 June 2015 (UTC)

Yes.Scream!! (talk) 07:15, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

I appreciate[edit]

your catching and fixing my missed signature at Talk:European witch-hunts. Looking at it I see I hit four "!"s instead of "`"s. For reasons best explained over a six pack, many of my edits end abruptly and this seems to have been one. Thanks, Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 08:00, 11 June 2015 (UTC)

Don't put refs on talk pages[edit]

so . . . . .why? Or perhaps why not? Carptrash (talk) 19:11, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Cos pages get archived & the {{reflist}} might not get archived with the refs. Also could be a long way away from the <ref> point. Folk on talk pages don't (generally) want to be bounced to the bottom of the page. It's been an (unwritten?) rule ever since ... Scream!! (talk) 19:33, 19 July 2015 (UTC)
Okay. I am often more inclined to follow unwritten rules than written ones. Carptrash (talk) 19:59, 19 July 2015 (UTC)



I'd like to remind you that rolling back legitimate edits is tantamount to vandalism. I'm referring of course, to the changes of mine you undid on The Amazing Atheist's article. — Unsigned, by: NebXan / talk / contribs

Removing sourced content wasn't exactly legitimate. Perhaps two sourced quotes for the article?-- Forerunner (talk) 00:56, 7 August 2015 (UTC)
Looking at past comments & edits, I stand by the roll back. TJ is a rather loathsome character. Taking a quote from a self published book (for an editor's one and only edit) changing the entire drift of the article without first discussing on the talk page is not good practice. Scream!! (talk) 13:05, 7 August 2015 (UTC)

If the TAA article talk page consensus really was that I'm wrong, how come so many of the arguments I put forth for changing the quote went unrefuted. If there really is overwhelming support for keeping the quote, I don't see any of it. Just a handful of assholes like you that refuse to listen to reason. --NebXan2 (talk) 18:46, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Because folk can't be arsed with discussing with an idiot. Scream!! (talk) 18:51, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Ooh! An "idiot". Well, isn't that a compelling argument? --NebXan3 (talk) 18:54, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
Oh, bugger off pillock. Scream!! (talk) 19:07, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Minor Editing[edit]

Reverted for what? Because I removed unsourced statements? Typhoon (talk) 12:57, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Yup! Scream!! (talk) 16:02, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
lolwut Typhoon (talk) 16:06, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
Use {{fact}} before deleting, please. Scream!! (talk) 16:08, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
I am not familiar with the point in question but Typhoon may wish to read RationalWiki:What is a RationalWiki article? Please remember that we are not WP.--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 16:59, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
The parts I've removed were added by a drive-by bible apologist. He's tried to imply that the Hyksos were the Jews mentioned in the Exodus, a frivolous theory that is not supported at all. After I removed it it was returned back with a link to the Wikipedia page for the Hyksos, which is not supporting at all this theory either. Man, I should put somewhere a claim that the native americans were originally jews, link the wikipedia article for the native americans, and then continue reverting anyone removing it. Would you like that? Typhoon (talk) 20:15, 6 September 2015 (UTC)

Do you even have a job?[edit]

Or even leave your room? Because you wouldn't even be able to keep a job at McDonald's with the social ineptitude you display here considering that "fuck off" and ALL CAPS makes up 95% of your vocabulary. Not to mention you'd be banned for trolling rather than made an admin on any legitimate website other than this freak show.

How about you take a shower, get some sunshine, talk to a few people in real life, and make at least 1 IRL friend, and realize that once this site finally bites the dust that it's all you have in your miserable life.

P.S. Ad homs are a logical fallacy and highly irrational. Thanks for the screenshot material though, ugly degenerate. -- (talk) 08:28, 11 September 2015 (UTC)

No, I don't have a job - at 71 years old I figure I've done my share. I probably wouldn't get a McD or BurgerK job 'cause I find it difficult to tolerate idiots. "Fuck off" is the only sort of language some folk are worthy of and I don't think(?) I've ever used "ALL CAPS" in any post on this site, always willing to be shown otherwise though.
I had a shower about an hour ago and walk at least seven miles a day, rain or shine. I have several IRL (strange to use an abbreviation when the rest of the entry is so verbose[!]) friends although I must confess that I have outlived most of them. I honestly think that this site will outlast my existence - I have plenty of other things in my quite happy life.
Ad homs are satisfying though, aren't they? You obviously think so, judging by your entry above.
All the best, Scream!! (talk) 12:58, 11 September 2015 (UTC)
P.S. A very little internetting(is that a word?)(no) leads me to believe that our silly little BoN is possibly ED's own 'Ultra Sleuth'. Tut tut - nothing else to do on your silly little wiki, Ultra old bean? Scream!! (talk) 00:49, 12 September 2015 (UTC)

You indeffed this idiot for page blanking. I've reduced that to 3 months coz it seems excessive on a first edit etc. If you decide to revert that, I've no issue. Be well. --MtDBogan 13:09, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

'Twasn't first edit but second time blanking same page. Methinks that said idiot has an axe to grind and is possibly not unconnected to the Consumer health digest. --Scream!! (talk) 21:10, 11 February 2019 (UTC)

AS to the Fry block: I have no idea; I quite approve of it though as I list him among "those whom I should like but can't stand" along with, inter alia, Ricky Gervais and the odious Dawkins. Scream!! (talk) 20:09, 17 December 2019 (UTC)

The pushback from users across multiple camps to me trying to de-detoxify the saloon from the most inflammatory of posts leads me to believe I'm not up to the task. You've been around longer and seem to be more trusted among some older users than I, so I've resigned and demoted you. As per the election rules and results. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 23:20, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

You've been whacked with a wet trout.
