signature[edit]

Hello! Please leave timestamps with your sig, thank you! Hitting four ~ like so ~~~~ should drop both your signature AND a timestamp. Five ~ is just a timestamp. Thank you-Hastur! (talk) 17:15, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

I knew you'd figure it out! Hurray!--Hastur! (talk) 19:21, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Welcome[edit]

I figured that since you were knew here, I decided to say hi. If you need help, just read the style guide and stuff (should be linked in that first message someplace)Metazero 00:32, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Thank you. :) ._. (talk) 01:35, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

hello![edit]

i'm new here too, that's nice

you're from oklahoma? i am too! it really is kind of an awful place for us skeptics (which must be why we're here)

goatspeed, and i wish you luck in your future endavors!

Autumncheney (talk) 07:04, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Hi! Yes, it isn’t the best place for skeptics, what with the rampant fundies and all. Although, the younger generations are a lot more liberal, so that might not be the case for long. ._. (talk) 16:13, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Your attempt at afd[edit]

I've deleted your attempt at making an Article for Deletion attempt. (RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Thomas E. Woodward). As the instructions in RationalWiki:Articles for deletion indicate, you first add {{Article for deletion}} to the page you want to delete. Then, after you save the page there should be a set of instructions that show up under the template, click on "preload debate" to be taken to page creation. During page creation, the editing field probably contains something like {{subst:afd2|pg={{subst:#titleparts: {{subst:FULLPAGENAME}} | | 2}}|text=Reason}}. The part where you see text=Reason, you replace "reason" with your reasons for deleting that page. Then save the page, and all the headers and other important formatting are created. Finally, please add your recently created AfD to RationalWiki:Articles for deletion/Log, at the top of the list. Then, you should be good to go, and your AfD attempt can be properly archived. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 16:55, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Ok. I’m afraid I still don’t understand, so I think I’ll just leave the article deleting to others... ._. (talk) 17:54, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
What part don't you understand though? All of it? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 17:55, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
The articles for deletion page has a good set of comprehensive instructions. It’s how I learned how to do it. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 17:56, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
I don’t understand anything after marking the page for deletion. After marking it, I realized I had no clue what I was doing, so I tried to unmark it by closing the tab. I guess it had already saved the edit. I read the instructions, but the instructions that were supposed to appear under the template after I marked the page were not present. ._. (talk) 18:02, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
I saw a template being added, and I saw the small instructions underneath them fine. I'm not sure what you mean by "closing the tab", though. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:14, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
By closing the tab, I mean as in Google. You know, tabs. I didn’t see the instructions, maybe I wasn’t looking hard enough. I was kind of sleepy at the time. ._. (talk) 18:21, 31 August 2020 (UTC)

Regarding your userpage[edit]

Hi, I've noticed that on your userpage you've revealed quite a bit of information about yourself. You might not want to do that online, as people might use that against you. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 20:18, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Oh, thanks. I've changed it. Monke (talk) 20:27, 10 November 2020 (UTC)

Regarding inappropriate username.[edit]

Hello. As it is, your username violates our Blocking Policy (ref. no usernames which are hard to read or distinguish). We would appreciate it if you could request a new username speedily. If you don't, I'll rename your account to User:Two dots in a few days. Username requests can be made on RationalWiki:Requests to change username. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 23:16, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Ok. Sorry it's hard to read, that was unintentional. I'll make the request soon. Twodots (talk) 23:23, 12 November 2020 (UTC)

Don't edit the userspace of other people[edit]

It's theirs. Unless it violates CS, don't edit the userspace of other people (or just don't it in general, if a userspace breaks CS, please yell in ATIM). Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 20:07, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Oh, sorry. I was fixing some typos. I won't do it without permission again, sorry. Twodots (talk) 20:09, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Saw your request for some work in the Saloon Bar[edit]

I personally like to hunt bare URLs (<-- this little paragraph will explain why they need to be hunted). As you browse the wiki reading random articles, go down to the References section and look for things to hunt. It's not exciting, but it is very helpful and it's hard to mess up (of course you CAN mess it up, but if you do we can always help you fix it. Make sure to hit "Show Preview" before hitting save to make sure your formatting worked).

This will explain how to format links. If you need an example, I formatted all the bare URLs in the Authoritarianism of Donald Trump article. This is what the refs looked like before I started. This is what it looked like after I hunted down the ugly looking refs. You said you weren't confident in your article writing abilities? Well, this takes no special talent, just time. And a good long podcast, or a music playlist blasting in the background. I also found it more manageable to do in 25 minute bursts.

So if you are feeling SUPER BORED, consider setting a timer, put on music in the background, and fix URLs (or don't, if you have an actual life, unlike myself. No pressure either way, just a suggestion). Happy hunting! (If you need tips just ask and I'll try and reply) - Rairyu75 (Talk) 21:49, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

That's actually really helpful. Thanks. ^-^ Twodots (talk) 22:55, 17 November 2020 (UTC)

Blocked[edit]

Which comment was inapprpraitwe? It was the one about eating glass, right? Twodots (talk) 20:38, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

It was so out of line in fact that I acted as a board member to punish you. Apologies for the misspelling. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:43, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Yes, that was definitely out of line. It was very shitty of me. Could you let Ox know that I wasn't trying to be a scumbag? What I said was not what I was trying to get across in the slightest, and I'd like to try to make amends. Believe it or not, I don't try to be a massive asshole. Twodots (talk) 20:48, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Oxy can read your comments here. However, I'm not going to lift your 9 hour block. Please note that you've been blocked, not banned. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 20:52, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
I wasn't asking you to, I just wanted to make amends for being a dick. Anywho, thanks for letting me have my userpage. I'd also like to apologize to you. I imagine you don't enjoy watching people being extremely rude to other people. Twodots (talk) 20:55, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
If she hasn't responded to it here by then, you can apologize to her on Oxys talkpage af your block runs out in about 8 hours. We all make rash comments sometimes, I've certainly made my share of them. But suggesting that someone should harm themselves, even as a joke, is really not cool.
I'll look into some of those urls you linked to. Thanks for bringing them to our attention. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 22:06, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Come on, taking it a little too seriously don't you think? Far far worse has been said. Shit I have, on multiple occasions, threatened people with Walrus rape. This is nothing. AceModerator 22:31, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
You were super offended about Oxy telling someone (was it Mike, I forget) that their mother should have aborted them. I think your walrus rape threats go far enough to the field of absurdism that no-one is able to take them seriously. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 22:38, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
Comrade, didn't you personally threaten to beat the shit out of me? CoryUsar (talk) 22:40, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
I don't think I was super offended. I might have said it was an extremely shitty thing to say but I wasn't personally offended. Getting all hot under the collar about telling someone to eat glass is a little precious. AceModerator 23:07, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I`m not offended, Twodots, we all get angry and make rash mistakes sometimes. I am more angered at Cory and HBC, who continue to be toxic, sealioning assholes to me no matter what I do. Oxyaena Harass 00:34, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Oh, I wasn't mad. I was trying to get a point across. I thought you were saying that human life wasn't important, and was challenging you to prove your lack of concern for your life or those of others. Or something. It wasn't thought out well, as it wasn't obvious to anyone but myself what I was trying to get across. I'm glad there aren't any hard feelings, by the way. I try not to burn bridges.

Twodots (talk) 21:52, 18 November 2020 (UTC)

I fixed the ones on A Matter of Faith and removed some dead links on Genesis 3D. I'm going to get drunk now. You can continue from where I ended once the block ends. I'll check up on it in the morning too. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 22:32, 18 November 2020 (UTC)
I've found that I'm better at finding issues than fixing them. Also, good job. Enjoy your Satan-juice.Twodots (talk) 04:41, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Fixed the Skepticism naked links, but I feel it may need many more citations and expanding to bring the topic to justice, as it is a very popular page.The 𝗦𝗾𝗿𝘁-𝟭 talk stalk 07:23, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
I agree. Also, good job fixing those links. :) Twodots (talk) 07:52, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Fixed the Genesis 3D. You might want to try doing some of them yourself though. If you actually want to be a useful contributor here, that'd be much more useful than waiting for others fix them instead. You'd also learn quite a bit about wiki editing while doing it, even if it's a time consuming process to check all those links to see which ones are dead and what the dates are and what not. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:09, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
It's not that I don't want to. I physically cannot open the majority of those links, and attempting to open some of them would result in unfortunate things happening to me. Twodots (talk) 18:14, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Well that's vague and somewhat weird, but whatever. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:19, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
I'm a student, using a school-issued laptop. My high school blocks most websites. Opening blocked pages can result in punishment. Twodots (talk) 18:30, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Ok, well I'm glad for you that Rationalwiki isn't one of those at least. And I guess if they block Fundie sites I can't complain that much.
Though generally schools' job would be to educate and thus limiting students' access to information (other than Porn maybe though I personally wouldn't mind them having access to that either) is somewhat fucked up. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:35, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── They actually do a pretty good job, despite the blocks. Which seem to be motivated more by a desire to keep the kiddos focused on schoolwork then to quell information. Most major news sites are available, as well as Wikipedia, National Geographic, and most of the government sites. They just block the funsies. Except for this wonderful, obscure wiki, that is. Twodots (talk) 19:01, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

Surely you could take a look at the refs in some of the less controversial of those articles though like Biogeography and Mars for instance. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:56, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
I'll try. Twodots (talk) 19:01, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Yup, I can access most of em'. I'll try'n get to im' in about an hour. Seeya later. Twodots (talk) 19:05, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
See ya! Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 19:07, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Before I go, a quick heads up: GCom's having a freakout in the Bar. Twodots (talk) 19:10, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
Don't particularly care. He and Cory are always at each others throats and have both been around much longer than me. Besides, GC is a board member so let him vent. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 19:15, 19 November 2020 (UTC)
I'm not at his throat. He comes across as that tiny kid that has constant tantrums and screeches at you, and you just hold his head with one arm as he uselessly flails his arms around at you until he tires himself out. He's made a few physical threats to me, making it ironic that he blocked you for 9 hours for a snide comment, but honestly, I don't get the impression that he's actually any threat in real life. After all, the guys making a big scene aren't the ones you need to watch out for. I could've had a coup case about him and his threats, but I'm a big boy and can handle it. CoryUsar (talk) 20:18, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Okie dokie. Twodots (talk) 21:24, 19 November 2020 (UTC)

The Coop Vote[edit]

I moved the coop vote to "Ineligible" because your account doesn't yet meet the legal age of 3 month required to vote. If the vote drags out for another week (which has happened and 2 weeks voting period used to be a rule), I'll move it back under "Yes". Also, another free hint. If you want to add comments under coop votes, put # before the colons when indenting. For instance, if you're the second commenter under the vote (like you were after Ace commenting on Nuttys vote) you'd put #:: before your message. Without the hashtag it fucks up the vote numbering. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 19:55, 20 November 2020 (UTC)

Kay, thanks. :) Twodots (talk) 19:59, 20 November 2020 (UTC)
I restored the vote on banning GR. Unfortunately they managed to archive the LT vote before I remembered to restore your vote, but he was banned anyway so no major harm done there. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 14:16, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
Wait, so I can vote now? Awesome. Twodots (talk) 17:57, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
Yep, you turned 3 months old yesterday at 5:16 pm GMT (I'm not sure what timezone you live in, but that's just over 25 hours ago). So congrats, you get to vote. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:31, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, it bothers me. I won't do it again.Twodots (talk) 01:41, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

I gave you a 1 hour block as a warning. I've been trying to be helpful, but if you're not going to stop behaving like a troll you'll be treated like a troll. Not by me necessarily, but by someone. Fucking try and be useful will you. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 01:47, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

"Are you drunk?"[edit]

No, I'm frustrated arguing repeatedly with someone who dismisses entire fields because they're apparently outside of his understanding. And uses bad arguments while doing so. The worst part is, PolSci, Philosophy, and political philosophy aren't that hard to understand once you sit down and look at them. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 01:43, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

Sorry, I just saw you making lots of spelling/grammar mistakes. You're normally pretty eloquent, and it was confusing. Twodots (talk)
For what it’s worth, I’m drunk. AceModerator 06:35, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
Very epic of you. Twodots (talk) 06:37, 21 November 2020
I wouldn't go as far as TO SAY epic. AceModerator 11:06, 21 November 2020 (UTC)
Yeah epic. Amazing. AceModerator 11:06, 21 November 2020 (UTC)

You’re a sysop now. Blocks from other sysops are jokes. If anyone really wanted to block you, they’d go to the coop to have your sysop taken away. At worst a regular block is an annoyance. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 22:55, 23 November 2020 (UTC)

Welcoming new users[edit]

Hi, it's great to welcome new users, but it's best to wait and see that they're actually able to make constructive contributions first (e.g., this: User talk:Aiquei). Thanks! Bongolian (talk) 20:03, 7 December 2020 (UTC)

Okie-dokie. I'll try to do that in the future. Twodots (talk) 20:14, 7 December 2020 (UTC)
Single one letter spelling correction by a BoN might not count as constructive enough you know. Maybe try and limit the welcome messages to registered users or very productive unregistered ones. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:35, 8 December 2020 (UTC)

Poems[edit]

In response

  • Humpty Trumpty sat on (a non-existent) Mexican wall
  • Humpty Drumpfy had a great (electoral) fall
  • And all the king's court cases, and all the king's sacked men
  • Could not put the election victory together again

Can you improve this? Anna Livia (talk) 00:09, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

I'll definitely try, dude. Stay tuned, I'll get around to it tomorrow. Twodots (talk) 00:30, 11 December 2020 (UTC)
Okie doke, I have a bunch of random, medium-quality lines. Please note that they aren't organized in the slightest and have no meaningful order. This isn't a completed poem, it's just a bunch of rhyming lines. It's essentially a pile of raw materials, out of which we'll make a poem of some sort. I'd appreciate help, @Anna Livia. ;w;
Humpty Trumpty sat on his daddy's tower
Scamming fools with shows of his largely nonexistent power
A braggart, a lier and a fool
An all-round tool
Orange-skinned baboon
Belly like a balloon
Then, with a scowl on his face, he admitted he lost the Presidential Race
And slithered back to his daddy's tower.

Yeah, @Anna Livia, I agree. Here's a slightly edited version o' yours, hope it's more in line with what yer goin' for.
Humpty Trumpty sat on his nonexistent wall
Humpty Trumpty had a great fall
And all his court cases, and all his yes-men

You've been whacked with a wet trout.

Don't take this too seriously. Somebody just wants to let you know you did something silly.

Inappropriate usernames[edit]

Are a good reason for considering blocks. Anna Livia (talk) 13:57, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Uh, yeah, if it's a username like "Ihatejews" or "fuckRWIKILOLZ@!!!11!", not if it's a mild poop joke. They're a constructive editor. If you have such an issue with their username, ask a mod to change it or something. Twodots (talk) 17:28, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
I also operate in other bits of the wikiverse where more stringent rules are applied: a matter of local preferences. Anna Livia (talk) 19:54, 25 December 2020 (UTC)
Regardless of how things work elsewhere, you shouldn't ban constructive editors for poop jokes. That's dumb. Twodots (talk) 20:06, 25 December 2020 (UTC)

Why'd you remove the "New Atheism" and "Fundamentalist atheism" related ones? I don't see how they would be that offensive. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 17:09, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

It's been there since November 2011.[1] Apparently added by User:Tiberius Gracchus, who according to his talk page seems to have been sock of brxbrx, or Hastur as he's now known. Brx was considered a ED troll by many if I remember correctly, but not a conservapedia one. Also the Fundamentalist atheism's been included at least since early 2011. Didn't look further.

Huh. Twodots (talk) 17:38, 30 December 2020 (UTC)
ED also hates atheists though (they hate 95% of the human population)... not to say that Hastur currently does (his views seem to have changed since then). --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 17:43, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

You should put the tumblr ones back, at least. I mean let's imagine an alien landed in your backyard and asked you if we have klintar on this planet. When you ask what that is, they respon with "a Klintar is anyone who self-identifies as a klintar."Skadooshbag (talk) 17:56, 2 January 2021 (UTC)

Thank you, comrade. I will work ever harder! Twodots (talk) 18:39, 30 December 2020 (UTC)

Adding descriptions to diff links[edit]

Breaks them. It always shows the current version instead of the diff you tried to provide (at least I haven't figured out how to make it work).

So may I suggest you provide the diffs as direct links, like this.

"A violent threat[URL] and a Soros conspiracy theory! [URL]"

Enjoy rooting through Nobs' shit though and try to retain your sanity. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 23:12, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

Ah, thanks for the tip. I'm retaining it so far, but y'never know... Twodots (talk) 23:16, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Ay yi yi... I'm tired out for now. If you feel like assisting, I stopped at 16:18, 19 March 2010. Twodots (talk) 23:34, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Which means you got pretty far, especially since it generally isn't considered good form to call people out for such ancient comments on wikis. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee my latest prototypes 23:44, 7 January 2021 (UTC)
Well, yes, but I'm going to call him out on everything, not just the old stuff. I simply want to make sure people are aware of his dirtbaggery in it's entirety. Twodots (talk) 00:05, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Mistake edit in Renewable Energy[edit]

Hello Twodots, I must have accidentally clicked the undo button or something for an edit on the Renewable energy article while looking at the Fossil record, as it now says that I reverted the previous edit. Sorry about that. I must have clicked the wrong thing, as I didn't mean to revert an edit. I hope this doesn't give me any kind of "criminal record" on this site. --LiamM32 (talk) 23:06, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

No worries, mistakes happen. CoryUsar (talk) 23:07, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Oh, yeah, yeah, it's cool. No worries. Twodots (talk) 23:09, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Question about revert[edit]

What was wrong about the edits that you reverted here?

I think that red pill picture is a suitable illustration, and the 3%ers section also refers to a different section, so why shouldn't cohencidence?

Also, what was wrong about listing the term Commiefornia?

I am asking so I can learn what was wrong. Hnio80 (talk) 12:35, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Oh, I'm sorry, I hadn't meant to revert those edits. That was a complete accident. Many apologies. Twodots (talk) 15:42, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
I see. No problem. I will reinstate the edit. Thanks much. Hnio80 (talk) 00:31, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
Please do. ^-^ Twodots (talk) 00:40, 10 January 2021 (UTC)

caffeine[edit]

it' s a helluva drug, KC
it' s a helluva fuckin' drug
y'know, i really should have thought this through more
lmao
remind me never to use caffeine to cram late at night ever again
i normally don' t react to it this way
jesus fucking christ, what a bloody headache
gaaaaaaah
on the bright side, at least I finished what I needed to
albeit with a side effect of fucking up the bar for no reason
dear goat, i need sleep
it' s been at least a day
since i last slept, that is
i really wasn't expecting this caffeine crash and headache
which was stupid, now that I think about it
bleeeegh
anyways, i haven't been hacked
well, I mean, my brain feels like it's been icepicked
caffeine, lemons, mint gum and nearly two days without sleep'll do that to ya
i really ought t' break this habit of late-night working
it's clearly not being great for me...
ahem
anyways, apologies for fucking up the bar and similar stuff
dunno if I did anything else
why the fuck did I do that, anyways? I feel semi-lucid

uh, any tips as to how one gets over a massive headache and gets t' sleep? also, it's 4:20. thought that was comedic.
because weed
Twodots (talk) 10:22, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
(EC)Don't worry about it dude, easily enough reverted. I've been there too, though fortunately back then, I didn't have a stable internet connection at home. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 10:22, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Been smoking weed too? Anyway, headaches don't generally stop me from falling asleep if tired enough. Drinking too much coffee on the other hand. 'Fraid I don't know how to help you there. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 10:25, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
weed? lol, no. generally, i don't pop smoke, inject, or snort anything
not really my thing- that and i couldn't get any even if I was interested
headaches normally don't do jackshit to me- i just ignore them
but like, this is a fuckn monster of a headache
imagine a million tiny little sadistic dwarves armed with jackhammers roaming around inside your skull
kinda like that
og, thanks- and yeah, i don't think sleep-deprived, caffeine-drop me was being malicious, just stupid.
I really ought to skitter off to bed now- I'm sleepin' till noon
at least. I finally finished a bio paper. after two fucking weeks of research, writing, proofreading, emailing some other dipshit members of my little group, I finished the fuckin' paper. hell yaaah
thanks for being somewhat sympathetic instead of annoyed
anyways, g'night
Twodots (talk) 10:32, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Well... you can ease yourself off caffeine with moar caffeine, but that doesn't solve the problem. The other option is to bite the bullet and enjoy the headache on Sunday then go back to 4 cups of coffee a day Monday-Friday, feel a little tired every Saturday, and then the pounding headaches return next Sunday. CoryUsar (talk) 14:51, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
Happily, the headache has mostly subsided. Apologies for the insane editing spree. That was, uh, quite odd. Twodots (talk) 17:15, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
It's okay, it's just generally not a good idea to edit under the influence (EUI). I once edited while under the influence of sleep deprivation and did far worse things than a few harmless, silly edits: I ended up getting cooped and temporarily sysrevoked/promoted for assuming bad faith during an editing dispute and abusing my blocking rights. --Goatspeed.

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Who the hell is Asherchancey and why was that troll ranting about them? Twodots (talk) 18:12, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

There's a current rampage of trolls and spambots. Guess one of them needed a place to vent after Ascherchanceys page was protected. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 18:16, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
