Taxation is theft, or something like it
If you want to make a big deal of the coercive aspect of taxation right at the top of the Tax article, it will be better to discuss it first on the article's talk page. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 02:40, 28 January 2015 (UTC)

That's weird. Under the "Signatures" section of your Preferences page, is the "Sign my name exactly as shown" box checked?
If it is, you'll need to wrap your name between [[User:Somethingsea| and ]] in order for it to link properly. For instance, if I wanted my signature to look like something my 13-year-old self would think was cool:
- ~La Bête Noire~ C'est moi, Noir LeSable!
Then I would enter in that line:
- <font color=gray>~La Bête Noire~</font> '' '''[[User:Noir LeSable|C'est moi, Noir LeSable!]]''' ''
- Nah, it's what happens when you sign on your own user page. Similarly, if you sign on your own talk page, the talk link won't link. I believe it's just the way the wiki software handles internal links that direct to the page they're already on. - Grant (talk) 06:46, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
- Ah, weird. I don't think I ever noticed that. Noir LeSable (talk) 06:46, 28 January 2015 (UTC)
Not really, but thanks for insulting me while trying to help. The use of a definition is merely the starting point. The problem is much worse than you think. It's not simply definitional. It's societal, cultural. I do not consent to my money being taken from me. It is. That's theft. Oh, you don't define theft that way? Oh, you don't define reason as coherency and being logical? Oh, so you're just assigning your own chosen values for words, regardless of adherence to reality or consistency? Have fun with that. Bye. somethingsea (talk) 06:47, 19 February 2015 (UTC)
