Its no like anybody elses talkpage...

His talkpage uses LiquidThreads, A lot of us view that as unnecessary.


Your "basics about me" - and a kindred spirit.

@Tmtoulouse - I've just been reading your "basics about me" which I must confess, I find very interesting. I have a strong interest in neuroscience as well, as I think it is fundamental to gaining a deeper and fuller picture of all aspects of human activity. I also share your emphasis/interest in the overlap of human behaviour and evolution; behaviourism in its emphasis on, couching all terms, as much as possible, in observational criteria or links to observation, is perhaps its greatest strength. If I recall correctly, you have been influenced by the Logical Positivists/Empiricists, I too have been deeply influenced by the "spirit" of the movement, as well as key individuals e.g., Carnap and Neurath. Again, if I recall correctly, you had a deep scepticism of the Kuhnian paradigm: its significance, and the worry that it veers into social constructivism. However, I would not consider myself a Logical Empiricist anymore, I have settled for some time now on W.V. Quine's work, and in particular his project of Naturalized Epistemology. I would be very interested, if you have time, to hear your thoughts and opinions on Naturalized Epistemology. At any rate, I would be happy, and available, to discuss Logical Empiricism or Quinean Naturalism with you, and its significance for neuroscience, behaviourism, and evolutionary theory.—

What do you think about your website largely devolving into a grotesque smear site specialising in defamatory (especially sexual smears!) content against people interested in human variation, that depart from the Marxist zeitgeist? Has anyone sued you yet? What do your colleagues think about this? Regards

Wimbledon Flaneur (talk)10:49, 20 September 2019

Boo hoo, racism is bad and you haven't read a dictionary in your life. And you bother Trent with this petty drivel... For shame.

☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise17:11, 20 September 2019

Actually basing policies on retarded meaningless simplifications and delusions like "racism" is bad. Political philosophy and human genetics for dummies. Welcome to "Rationalwiki". You think that debunking Kent Hovind makes you a philosopher. Since Trent seems content to bother his ideological opponents (intellectual superiors) in such a disturbing and underhand manner, perhaps we should return the favor with the appropriate interest. (talk)07:16, 21 September 2019

Wow, concern dutifully noted.

--It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod)09:42, 21 September 2019

How could I possibly be a bother to my intellectual superiors? I am but a gnat to their giant intellect!

I notice the editors here pounce on every ambiguous sexual comment made by people that study human variation, and present it in the most twisted way possible to defame the target (the criminal offence of false light). But we don't have an article about Epstein who literally raped underage sex slaves. I wonder if people here actually care about sexual abuse victims or whether they're just a bunch of dirty little liars and character assassins that can't argue their way out of a paper bag. Shame indeed. (talk)07:25, 21 September 2019

The King has Returned

What was it like under that mountain, Trent?

Oxyaena Harass 23:00, 16 September 2019

I am always here! Just sometimes locked in stasis!

tmtoulouse02:09, 20 September 2019

Well we're glad to have you back regardless.

Oxyaena Harass 14:29, 20 September 2019

Hi Trent,

I nominate you for the 2018 mod elections!

You accidentally removed the mod election notice when you took down the fundraising bar. (talk) 22:09, 15 November 2018 (UTC) (talk)22:09, 15 November 2018

2 millionth edit

See the exchange at the Saloon Bar - can you make the due arrangements as, going by the edit count, the event is likely to occur in the very near future, and there would need to be some very precisely timed activity to get the relevant edits done.

Anna Livia (talk)13:43, 4 July 2018

You won’t see this for ages but he’s back.

About what said about the Trump Tower fire is pretty illegal

The government has to take threats seriously even if they're said in the moment. There's one thing you don't do,and thats wish death upon someone (even if they suck at being president) ShiningSwordofThoughts (talk) Also what's the webmaster's email?

False Devices - Honey Pot attempts

someone (I know who) is actively pretending to be Tmtoulouse on FB and Gmail.

Teeds01 (talk)03:48, 10 January 2018

This person went all the way to putting their kid on the phone saying it was Tmtoulouse.

US Election Day

On the Recent Changes page, the 2016 US Election day message is still up. I'm not sure if you're the person who manages that, if not, can you point me in the right direction?

My entry/talk page

I have twice now had 'some #### IP' putting abusive/threatening/misogynist language on my user and/or talk page - which is totally unacceptable behaviour.

Mine is one of the few (or possibly the only) obviously female user names on RW - and obviously masculine or neutral names and IPs do not have such things done to them - and it does not appear to be a problem elsewhere in those parts of the wikiverse I use.

While I accept that RW is 'more rumbustious' than much of the wikiverse such behaviour is likely to give it a bad reputation.

Anna Livia (talk)09:37, 17 October 2017

Trent is practically a ghost at Rationalwiki.

ClickerClock (talk)09:42, 17 October 2017

Trent who?

Anna Livia (talk)12:29, 17 October 2017

Tmtoulouse = Trent.

Christopher (talk)19:36, 18 October 2017

It appears as if the IP has been consistently blocked for doing this. I am sorry it keeps occurring but it seems as if administrators are handling it as effectively as we can. Permanent IP blocks don't really stop trolls and can block legitimate users when IPs switch around. You could have your user page protected as well which might assist with this.

tmtoulouse01:11, 18 October 2017

Wait? You are back???

You're alive???????

ClickerClock (talk)03:57, 8 October 2017

On the social media thing...

Last edit: 13:27, 6 August 2017

I'd love to take up the RW Twitter page, but not sure if I'd have the time to do the others. I'm a journalism major, so it fits right in with what I'm doing right now.

Osaka Sun (talk)01:09, 10 November 2011

Is it this account? And if so, what's the news with that? The FB page is ticking over nicely, actually, so I imagine Twitter would work providing people were willing to work on it, and we clearly do have people keen on running it!

Scarlet A.pngsshole21:15, 23 November 2011

...It's been three weeks now. You there?

Osaka Sun (talk)04:34, 5 December 2011

Trent seems to have been MIA for about a month. I imagine it's work-related pre-occupation and stress.

It's your cakeday?!

Hey, if so, I'd like to use all my powers as an RMF board member (and the power of Grayskull) to just say:

All the best,

Saturday August 20th hardware upgrades

Hi Trent! I was just wondering, as a member of the board of trustees and so on, what type of hardware upgrades were being made, and/or how they will affect the site and/or our users? I'd be stoked to hear news of improvement (even though things are ticking along just fine, atleast for me, as things stand)! Also, that's some dope code for your talkpage, my friend! Anyways, I am not worthy, etc. All the best,
