Theres this guy who wrote this book and founded this organisation. Much could be written but I don't have the energy. Anyone? SusanG  ContribsTalk 22:38, 29 September 2008 (EDT)


I am! However, your attribution of "fame" to my humble selfums is a bit boggling. But I love that game, so who cares, right? I've been on their under a couple other names before (Redoubt, OtherSide, LinusWilson) and they're all overflowing with existential challenges to Conservapedia's enforcement of the black-and-white code (not the Jim Crow kind; the kind with strict ideological trench warfare). The Bobby Jindal talk page was my doing too, though I forget what name that's under. Harbinger 05:33, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

Well, nice to see you here - "of doom"? not I trust. SusanG  ContribsTalk 05:35, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh, wait and see. Wait and see. Harbinger 05:49, 30 September 2008 (EDT)


Could you do me a favor and demote him please? Wiki janitorial duty is what he was meant for. --Edgerunner76...and a hotplate! 20:42, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

Done. SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:51, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks. He's my roommate actually. --Edgerunner76...and a hotplate! 21:00, 30 September 2008 (EDT)


Hey Susan--since Teresita kinda went batshit crazy on us, maybe we can demote another woman to janitor and get our gender ratio back to where it was? PFoster 21:08, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

B...B...But - she's a christian! (makes sign of devil's horns and backs away gibbering) . OK. You tell her though!SusanG  ContribsTalk 21:27, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks. And one day I'll have to tell you about my favourite professor back home--he's a Christian too. Anglican. And gay. And can be really complicated, you know...PFoster 21:31, 30 September 2008 (EDT)
Was only joking Nods.gif SusanG  ContribsTalk 21:34, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

I suspect sockpuppetry here! SusanG  ContribsTalk 19:30, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
On who's part? Sockpuppetry on RationalWiki??? Whodathunkit? ħumanUser talk:Human 19:43, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
Oh! No complaints just: two allegedly female new editors, both of whom upload self pictures, both of whom construct fairly elaborate user pages, both of whom note controversies on said user pages (Top 10 things I learned ...)(Pissing contests) and that as one goeth, the other appeareth. SusanG  ContribsTalk 19:51, 1 October 2008 (EDT)
Heh! [1] SusanG  ContribsTalk 10:38, 2 October 2008 (EDT)
Well, I guess that pretty much seals it. Sorry, Trent, you were right ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 18:41, 2 October 2008 (EDT)
SusanG, I wish I could go back in time a week and do everything over. When I came back here you gave me sysop and bureaucrat and things were really good, I was glad to be back, I like writing articles. But a bunch of stuff happened, a lot of it was my fault, some of it was me not knowing the culture here, and now things are so bad PFoster is kicking himself in the ass for even recommending me for sysop before he knew who I was. That's absolutely rock bottom. Francine 03:07, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
'Sokay, Francine, I started here as RojerB because I had been quite intimidated on various sites by the male oriented atmosphere. After I had been here a while I realised that the people here were reasonable and so I rejoined in my present guise. (my name's not Susan, but hey!) SusanG  ContribsTalk 18:55, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

Trivial drivel[edit]

That would be drivial ^_^ New3.pngPink(Please don't hurt me...) 22:20, 30 September 2008 (EDT)

Latest version of your user page[edit]

Garish, but interesting! Like, really garish. But I like the compactness, the "open only if you are serious" aspect to it. Nice. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:45, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Very clever and quite striking - but it hurts my eyes!--Bobbing up 04:12, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Clever, hurts. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:25, 1 October 2008 (EDT)

Thank you kindly (you should have seen it when they made the above comments though!) SusanG  ContribsTalk 02:06, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Are you fit enuff?[edit]

Don't know if your meds are up to it but I thought you'd be interested in this. Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum disease 17:29, 2 October 2008 (EDT)

Mmm, seems lovely, I've never tried it. They don't seem to have their own website but I'll try to get some mail order (£5.96/200g!). Sorry for not replying earlier, I assumed that the orange banner was another 'Titn or Fredn page blanking) SusanG  ContribsTalk 08:30, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

Peter fucking Mandelson![edit]

No comment! SusanG  ContribsTalk 08:05, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

He's like a bad penny... Totnesmartin 17:34, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
He's a crook & a slithy tove - shouldn't be allowed within 100miles of westminster! SusanG  ContribsTalk 19:11, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet[edit]

What's with all the Latin? I assume it is Latin. . . . weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 17:20, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

  1. It's a standard printer's fill in text for use in cases when the text hasn't yet been confirmed or to test formatting
  2. IT SAYS KEEP OUT. SusanG  ContribsTalk 17:22, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
that's an awful lot to say "keep out", wouldn't operor non penetro be simpler? All that Lorem ipsum stuff means "But I must explain to you how all this mistaken idea of denouncing pleasure and praising pain was born and I will give you a complete account of the system, and expound the actual teachings of the great explorer of the truth, the master-builder of human happiness. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful. Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain, but because occasionally circumstances occur in which toil and pain can procure him some great pleasure. To take a trivial example, which of us ever undertakes laborious physical exercise, except to obtain some advantage from it? But who has any right to find fault with a man who chooses to enjoy a pleasure that has no annoying consequences, or one who avoids a pain that produces no resultant pleasure?" anyway (it's from Cicero's The Extremes of Good and Evil). Totnesmartin 17:33, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Not Lorem ipsum means keep out! The page name says keep out! SusanG  ContribsTalk@~
But it's appearing at the top of this page, which doesn't say keep out. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 17:39, 3 October 2008 (EDT)
Not now it's not. GO AWAY - I'm trying to think - and with my limited equipment I'm struggling! SusanG  ContribsTalk 17:44, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

I used your convenient new edit tab[edit]

to create this comment. What's up with the purple edges? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:09, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Just playin' is all (magenta acshully) SusanG  ContribsTalk 03:13, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Ah, ok. Just watching the progress on the template, I guess. Seems to be going well, from what I can see. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:20, 4 October 2008 (EDT)
Need some input! SusanG  ContribsTalk 03:27, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

A gift for my favourite atheist.[edit]


PFoster 23:43, 4 October 2008 (EDT)

Very nice & very pointed - pity it cant be uploaded to CP! SusanG  ContribsTalk 02:06, 5 October 2008 (EDT)


Thanks for trying to keep things serious. In our debates the lutz often outshines our ideas.--Bobbing up 06:16, 6 October 2008 (EDT)

"Non existant section"[edit]

You stole five minutes of my life and I want them back. New3.pngPink(>_<) 21:49, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

One knows how to spell, 'twas a hook to catch teh littel fishies & make sure they were reeled in. (but you do see my point, no?) SusanG  ContribsTalk 00:30, 11 October 2008 (EDT)
Ah, I see, it wuz in quotes. One more game for the people who just like to play here, methinks. Do not stop the children (like me) from enjoying their children's games :) ħumanUser talk:Human 00:43, 11 October 2008 (EDT)


I am using a program called snagit. You can download it for a free trial. It works quite well, but I don't think that I will buy it when the trial expires...-- Antifly Now with 50% less retirement! 20:42, 11 October 2008 (EDT)

on windoze I had a (free) Firefox add on that allowed loads of selection criteria when screengrabbing, including the whole page. Haven't found it since I Linuxed though (haven't really looked that hard) SusanG  ContribsTalk 20:48, 11 October 2008 (EDT)
I will definitely be on the lookout for something free (and compatible with 3.0). But this works brilliantly and is free for now.-- Antifly Now with 50% less retirement! 20:58, 11 October 2008 (EDT)
Found it: here it is. SusanG  ContribsTalk 21:03, 11 October 2008 (EDT)

Susan, thank you for this heads up. No, I was not aware of this, nor am I 
familiar with Conservapedia (though I can guess what kind of wiki it is.) I 
greatly appreciate your contacting me and will respond to this immediately.
