Idiots... You realize I was trolling?[edit]

My covid=aids bait worked. CP will love to hear about your stupidity. And the reports for Andy thing was satire, FTR. GF’d — Unsigned, by: 84.17.50.166 / talk

Well, trolling is a bannable offense, so... IveBeenFrank (talk) 00:24, 27 November 2020 (UTC)

Vegan Gains[edit]

Dear Spud, my edit to this page was not at all an attempt at whitewashing. It was actually a blanket reversion of the last BON edits which I thought were messy and detracted from the standard of the writing (I thought the article makes its points pretty well already without interrupting the flow with things like "One word - psychopath." and "basically a fucking moron" complete with the red link). Sorry for not labelling my edit as a reversion. I realize that some of the BON edits do have merit, so I'll try again, and be more selective this time. --Butter Melon Cauliflower (talk) 22:08, 14 December 2020 (UTC)

Reason for uploading Jimmy Dore's montage[edit]

The reason I made that montage was to draw attention to the fact that Jimmy Dore profited off of war crimes denial when he made several YouTube videos in which he denied that chemical attacks took place in Syria and referred to dead Syrian children as "crisis actors". I won't link those videos here because they are despicable but you can find them on his YouTube channel. Then with the money he made from YouTube and his shows, he bought a 2,815 square feet walled compound for $1.9 million. If you watch his YouTube videos and follow him on social media like I do, you will notice that he likes to lecture others about "integrity" when he has none. Do you understand that his behavior is morally indefensible? GriftExposer (talk) 07:56, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Yep. And the image had exactly the same effect as anti-abortion billboards showing dead fetuses: it doesn’t affect my opinion on abortion but it does convince me that the people who put up the signs are thoughtless assholes. 2600:100E:B023:5AD1:44A4:2DD6:3880:AB2C (talk) 08:02, 16 December 2020 (UTC)
The BoN is absolutely right. And even if he had personally killed those children, that would be no reason to show photos of their dead bodies here. This is not a shock site. This is not a troll site. Making use of a photo of dead children in that way is utterly despicable. Spud (talk) 12:13, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Regarding Sievert 81[edit]

I noticed that you protected the page for Prions specifically to block Sievert 81 from editing it, and I'd like to say, thank you. I'd like to note that, on Wikipedia, this user was community banned and globally locked due to original research violations and sockpuppetry. JJPMaster (talk) 18:04, 16 December 2020 (UTC)

Yes, I know. Spud (talk) 01:46, 17 December 2020 (UTC)
