"William Lane Craig" article - logical fallacy[edit]

I saw you reverted my change to the Craig article. The argument that "looks like a logical fallacy" to you is in fact a valid application of modus tollens or "denying the consequent", not an application of the (fallacious) inference pattern affirming the consequent.

I'm not going to revert it or reply again about this. Leave the article in whatever state you like. (Sorry if it's bad form to bring this up here, I'm not familiar with wiki etiquette.)— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Category:Talk pages for deleted articles[edit]

Please add Category:Talk pages for deleted articles to the talk page (if it exists) of an article when deleting it. Thanks! —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 12:08, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

OK. I always assumed that was added automatically. I really should have known better! Spud (talk) 12:10, 20 July 2018 (UTC)
No problem, the notice to do it was only recently (and inconspicuously) added to the AfD page after all. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 12:19, 20 July 2018 (UTC)

Dear Mr. Moderator[edit]

I'm terribly sorry to trouble you. But there is an ongoing Chicken Coop case (involving myself). Could you please go over there and take a look. Thanks! Nerd (talk) 18:07, 27 July 2018 (UTC)


You're the only board member still active on a day to day basis here. Has the RMF met at all during your term? RoninMacbeth (talk) 14:15, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

Yes. Once. Or you could say one and a half times. There was one meeting that was cancelled after only two of us turned up for it but then another member came along after I left. Spud (talk) 14:30, 1 August 2018 (UTC)

My Edit on the Pseudolaw Page[edit]

Why do you call Conservapedia a blog? (talk) 05:42, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

Because that's how Andy Schlafly treated it. A place where he could throw up random thoughts like, "Did humor exist before Christianity?" look, we're all well aware here that Conservapedia is a wiki. But Andy and his few trusted toadies treat it lie their own blog rather than a collaborative encyclopedia Spud (talk) 05:49, 5 August 2018 (UTC)


Can you explain those reverts you're having with (talk · contribs · block  · rights  · rename) ? --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 18:31, 5 August 2018 (UTC)

@LeftyGreenMario I did rollback because it was the easiest way of checking all those changes. If the changes had been good, I would have undone my rollback and restored the changes. I just didn't want to click through ten different versions of one page. As it happened, most of the changes were attempts to ideologically rewrite the pages or were just very badly written. I don't doubt that most of what was added about Jeremy Corbyn was true. Unfortunately, it was all completely unreferenced. And when saying things like that about a living person, good sources are vital. Spud (talk) 23:17, 5 August 2018 (UTC)
There's a better alternative. If someone has made multiple changes you want to review in one go, you should check the page's history. Go to the revision before the multiple edits. Click on "edit". You'll see a warning about editing an older version. But anyhow, don't actually alter anything. Under the edit field, click "show changes". You can now see what has changed without reverting anything. If the changes aren't good, then save. This is the equivalent of reverting edits, actually, and it's what I did when I didn't have sysop tools in other wikis. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 04:02, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
Well, you live and learn! I'll do that next time. Spud (talk) 09:52, 6 August 2018 (UTC)
Don't mind me perving on your talk page, but there is a much better way to view multiple diffs @LeftyGreenMario. Next to the "prev" links, there are two columns of circular ("radio") buttons. Hit the one on the left before the relevant block of revisions. Now hit the one on the right for the final revision. Press "Compare selected revisions" up the top or bottom of the list. You are now viewing the difference between a whole bunch of intermediate revisions, with a link that can be copied etc.
As for patrolling them all, just don't be so lazy; the "Mark as patrolled" and subsequent "Newer edit" link are conveniently in the same place, and it's not hard to do a whole block quickly. —Kazitor Kazitor sig pic.png 12:18, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
All right! Thanks for that! Will keep in mind next time. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 17:45, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
