WRT edited WIGO[edit]

I assume that was the one with the slave owner statue desecration ban? If so, I was literally unable to understand what the WIGO in question was, hence my expansion of it. Sorry if I stood on your toes, but a joke headline only works if there also is a setup. I may have been excessive in correcting it though, so apologies if I went too far.

@Sirius No apology needed. Although I do think you were wrong to tell me not to editorialize. I wrote it that way because it was a bad news story. And bad news stories always get downvoted, no matter how missional they are, unless you make it clear in the WIGO that you think it's a bad news story too. But it doesn't matter now. To be a successful editor on any wiki, you have to be a bit thick skinned. To be a successful editor on this wiki, you have to be very thick skinned. I never get upset by anything anyone ever says here about me or my edits. Spud (talk) 16:28, 29 January 2021 (UTC)
o7. Fair enough then! I'll take the criticism to heart though! Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 16:55, 29 January 2021 (UTC)

A concern about your habit[edit]

At least you got the money in the end. What I want to know is whether you managed to kick to your habit? In fact I'm shocked that someone as rational as Begbie hasn't joined the site, to follow your example. Leucippus 20:45, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

My Mum and Dad were calling me Spud looooong before Trainspotting was published. Spud (talk) 11:33, 8 February 2021 (UTC)
My NEXt question: when do you intend to start legal proceedings against Irving Welch? Or have you already? We can't have this many Spuds in one world! We're already struggling to deal with the epidemic of Helena Bonham Carter impersonators! When? oh WHen? will the madness end.Leucippus 16:30, 9 February 2021 (UTC)


What's Uzantoskatoloj? Is it hungarian? Or Esperanto? Kevlarstar and his dog (Woof!) 13:01, 15 February 2021 (UTC)

@Kevlarstar Your second guess is correct. It's Esperanto. Spud (talk) 00:11, 16 February 2021 (UTC)


Can you put this straight and tell him to stop reverting my edits. If I did not know better I would think he is a passive-aggressive sock of Ken.--Mercian (talk) 16:38, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Once again Mercian has gotten the wrong end of the stick. He’s referring to an accidental rollback whilst editing on a phone that I immediately corrected. Hardly warrants moderator attention. Christopher (talk) 16:44, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Yeah accidental rollbacks happen. I've done it several times. Nothing to get excited over Mercian. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:19, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Over the last few days Christopher has reverted more than one of my edits including on my talk page which I thought to be sacrosanct which is why I feel this revert was a little more than coincidence.--Mercian (talk) 18:30, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
You’re being paranoid. Did I do this a few minutes before to cover my tracks? What could I possibly gain from one of your edits being reverted for less than a minute? I reverted one instance of talkpage blanking (which you’re not allowed to do even if it is your own page, see RW:CS#Talk pages), and I’m pretty certain that’s it. I’m guessing you’re still annoyed at me over the incident a few days ago where you incorrectly assumed I’d protected your talk page. Christopher (talk) 18:36, 30 March 2021 (UTC)
Small correction: I undid one other instance of removing talkpage content, this time from my own talkpage, during the page protection confusion. I can see why it looks like I’m out to get you for some reason, but it’s just a series of misunderstandings. Christopher (talk) 18:50, 30 March 2021 (UTC)

Spud, you are a loathsome Christianphobic, creationismphobic, manhoodphobic, self-centered, big-headed, irreligious bigot. If hell is full of people like you, I'll happily spend eternity in heaven.[edit]

Ken, I am not self-centred or big-headed. I do not hate all Christians or all forms of Christianity. I have absolutely no problem with people having religions of any kind as long as they don't try to force those religious beliefs on others and as long as they don't use their religion to justify hatred of other people, like you do. I'll admit to being strongly opposed to the pseudoscience of creationism and any attempts to have it taught in schools of any sort. I have no problem whatsoever with men being butch. I have no problem with women being butch either. And by basically just repeating what I've said back to me, you have turned into the most pathetic kind of playground bully. This is the last time I will respond to you on my talk page because I don't want to encourage any more of your socking. By being a RationalWiki whack-a-mole troll, like so many teenage vandals before you, you are also being truly pathetic. Get a fucking life for fuck's sake! Spud (talk) 00:06, 31 March 2021 (UTC)
