Copying Twodots' userpage[edit]

What's up with that? Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 11:41, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

It's not as if you even have a Hall of Glories (yet) either, so the welcome text is kinda misleading don't you think. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 11:45, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
Wow, I have a fan! Twodots (talk) 16:26, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Whassup,shitbag?[edit]

Why'd ya copy my userpage? I mean, I don't really care that you have, but I wanna know why. Twodots (talk) 19:53, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

If that upsets you so much you could just blank my user page and be done then and there, but you decide to have a conniption fit over that. And yes, you do seem to care, otherwise you would not have said anything. TAOB (talk) 20:44, 31 December 2020 (UTC)
I'm not upset. Just wondering as to why you chose to copy my userpage when you could've copied the userpage of any other user. I mean, it's really not that nice of a userpage. I'm asking out of curiosity; I don't care if you copy my userpage or not. I don't believe there's any sort of rule against it. Oh, and I should probably mention: I can't blank your userpage. I could delete it if you were a troll, which I personally believe you are, but you haven't actually done anything as yet, so I have no authority to do so. Yet. Apologies if you're a good-faith editor. Twodots (talk) 22:17, 31 December 2020 (UTC)

Template:Goat Sees[edit]

What’s it for? Are you planning on uploading the files it checks for? It doesn’t seem to do anything useful, and doesn’t currently do anything at all if you insert it into an article without parameters (as you did with reddit). Christopher (talk) 12:20, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

You wanna know what it does, to put that simply, it adds the article onto the "Needs Goat" category currently. I intended to upload a picture of a goat to accompany the template, but right now I'm testing whether it works as intended or if anything's missing. TAOB (talk) 12:57, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
Adding an article to a category doesn’t need a template. I’m going to delete it, if you want to recreate it make it do something useful. Christopher (talk) 13:42, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
I checked it earlier today and it looked like a Trojan horse, those #ifexist parser functions were very suspicious. I am a template editor myself, so I know what makes sense in a template and what doesn't. You did a good thing deleting it, RW shouldn't let people like him edit the template namespace in the first place. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 14:04, 7 February 2021 (UTC)
You're wrong, period. 2A0B:F4C0:16C:1:0:0:0:1 (talk) 14:12, 7 February 2021 (UTC)

Your only and last warning[edit]

Make that "Goat sees" template one more time anywhere on the wiki and I will make sure you are banned indefinitely. You are not fooling anyone and especially not me since I am very knowledgeable with templates, and let's be honest your template is nothing more than a bad prank that you tried to plaster on random articles for the sole purpose of using it as a backdoor for offensive imagery.

Autopatrolled[edit]

Because of your edits to and time on the wiki, Autopatrolled has been added to your user rights. This lets you bypass most of the abuse filters, bypass the CAPTCHA, and edit more frequently. If you have questions, bleat ask away.

We hope you enjoy your newfound ᴘᴏᴡᴇʀ — and these external tools:

Are you an idiot?[edit]

"His tariff threats forced Mexico to crack down on illegal immigration. Mexico is for the first time in recent history enforcing its own immigration laws — sending thousands of National Guard forces to its southern border to stop caravans of Central American migrants. Plus, Congress is poised to approve the U.S.-Mexico-Canada free-trade agreement, which would not have been possible without the threat of tariffs." Literally every part of this is wrong. I know you people are fucking brainwashed morons who want nothing more than for some authoritarian dipshit to genocide your supposed enemies out of existence, but JESUS MOTHERFUCKING CHRIST!!!! FUCKING LEARN HOW THIS SHIT WORKS!!! ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 18:53, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

For trying to help.

Bias[edit]

If your idea of "correcting bias" is to cherrypick employment data from 2019 before record breaking job losses in 2020, you need to work on a more critical examination of your idea of what bias is. Including positive things to "balance" negative things mindlessly is itself a very serious kind bias. A serious attempt at resolving bias should be focused on a cohesive understanding and remediating misunderstandings. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:56, 25 February 2021 (UTC)

Ban evasion[edit]

Just so you know, for every future attempt you make at ban evading I will block you for an additional three days. This is your only warning. Plutocow (talk) 23:02, 9 March 2021 (UTC)

Obvious sock is obvious[edit]

I’m not sure how no one caught this. This is a sock of User:Eric.the.erich. Looking at the contributions of Eric, User:TheRoboKitty, and TAOB, I notice a unique writing style, mostly in the edit summaries. All 3 users will sometimes start edit summaries with “I did” or “I explained”, etc, instead of just stating the changes they made. Aside from similar offenses/bigotry causing them to get blocked, this is the definitive link. No one else on rational wiki does this. I can say with total certainty all 3 of these accounts are the same person. Sievert 81 (talk) 03:20, 20 March 2021 (UTC)

Oh right, and they all 3 try to conceal their bigotry, but there is just one problem, Eric The Erich never touched the gender and sexuality related articles, while TAOB did. MarioSuperstar77 (talk) 10:05, 20 March 2021 (UTC)
@MarioSuperstar77 Last contrib of EiE Dec 27, first contrib of TAOB Dec 30. That is, EiE was his “serious” account, and TAOB is a troll account created after it was clear he couldn’t change anything. He says he’s a MGTOW, which makes sense as to why the targets are gender and sexuality. Sievert 81 (talk) 05:24, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
Was EiE ever connected to the 2a0b IP range? TAOB was obviously connected, from his name to undoing people who were reverting vandalism from 2a0b IPs to 2a0b IPs showing up to respond when he was banned. If this is true, we should be able to find a connection between EiE and that range. Plutocow (talk) 05:27, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
I can’t figure out how to pull contribs for a range. it seems different from Wikipedia. I even tried blocking it for nx0 seconds to see if that would show the dialog, but it tries to block a non existent user and fails. I know I’ve done it before, but I don’t remember how. User:2A0B:F4C0/48 Sievert 81 (talk) 05:39, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
So I figured out how to look at ranges, but the contribs for them are blank. You can click one of the 1 second test range blocks to see. This seems to be some sort of bug. Sievert 81 (talk) 05:55, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
2a0b is a TOR node. There is no verifying that. He’s hiding his IP, so we can’t exactly tell if he’s the same user by that. Also, if he was originally trying to edit without trolling, he wouldn’t be disrupting with IPs. see: https://www.whatismyip.com/ip-whois-lookup/ and see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Contributions/2a0b:f4c0:16c:: Sievert 81 (talk) 06:12, 21 March 2021 (UTC)
