Permission to Chat?[edit]

Hi, I'm... not like most people here on this site, to say the least. But I wanted to put our political and philosophical differences aside in hopes that we can find some common ground about something bothersome.

Someone who's been psychotically obsessed with documenting every one of my shortcomings and social gaffes online for the past three years made a post in a now-archived page in the Saloon section of this Website to try to paint me as the worst person on earth, and I would like to request either to have this smear campaign removed or at least to have the user names of me and my friends (to avoid detection, I've created this account with a name I don't normally use) redacted for security reasons. Oh, and he's also doxed the real name of one of my friends, so I'd like that redacted, too. This guy is insanely creepy, and I'm afraid to venture down the rabbit hole to find out why. It's enough to make anyone paranoid.

For reference, it's on Page 401 of the Saloon Archives, and TechPriest, the head of support, hid the body of the text, calling it creepy. You blocked me for trying to remove it manually earlier, although the smarter thing to do would have been to contact someone like you or TP first. I freaked out when I saw this guy trying to turn you against me, so I apologize for my rash behavior.

If you're on Discord or somewhere else we can talk in private, I'd like to discuss this matter further there and safely divulge more details as to why his rant of his is full of lies and the details about his stalkerish behavior he doesn't want you to know.

Oh, and he actually gave me the idea to send those messages to famous people on Twitter while pretending to be someone else. It was a setup.

Thanks for reading,

I suppressed the doxing and banned the person responsible. If you have any further inquiries, you can bring them up here. Plutocow (talk) 05:12, 13 October 2022 (UTC)
Holy shit that was a lot of notifications. Vee (talk) 00:18, 14 October 2022 (UTC)
Yeah, I tend to edit my writing quite a bit since I'm a perfectionist. ^^;
Thank you, Plutocow! If possible, can you please contact the Wayback machine to remove its screenshot of page 401 from its archives, too? I tried, but I’m not the owner of the page.

Why did you unfriend and block me? You gave no reason whatsoever. Did I do something incorrect? — Unsigned, by: Wisconcom / talk / contribs

Your afd on that one article by Nathan Larson[edit]

Do you want to go ahead and kill the article? 💣 It's only fair you get a chance at this. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 20:10, 5 November 2022 (UTC)

Troll over in Atheism[edit]

Hey Vee, sorry, I thought "rollback" would allow me to comment. I was going to put in the comment: "Aw, c'mon. As a troll goes, this is rather tame. Lemme try giving a few answers to him. :-)" Do you mind if I re-rollback your revert so I can post some snarky answers? --Bertrc (talk) 00:41, 10 November 2022 (UTC)

Up to you, but Troll is generally good policy. Vee (talk) 00:43, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
:-D This is half the fun of Rationalwiki (as long as the guy isn't too extreme) I see you blocked the account, though. Did he spam the site with trolling entries, or was this the only one? If they were doing it too much, then it is not worth it. --Bertrc (talk) 00:45, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
(I enjoy talking to people who disagree with me, so long as they are not too troublesome. Lemme know if you mind if I unblock him) --Bertrc (talk) 00:47, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
@Bertrc Ken is ban on sight, so don't unblock him. Vee (talk) 00:47, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
Oh, that is a Kensock? Nevermind, then. He won't be able to stay on long enough to answer any of my snarky answers. I like your stuff on the Drake's equation page, btw. --Bertrc (talk) 00:51, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
Thank you. Vee (talk) 00:52, 10 November 2022 (UTC)
I'm afraid I don't have Discord. Heh, I hate technology. This is really the closest I come to social media. I actually do have a Discord account, but I only check it in extreme situations, such as when I desperately need a tag in the Neverwinter Nights fan module "Higher Ground". I really never check it, otherwise, and am regularly yelled at on the HG servers for not replying to people's posts in Discord. :-D (ditto facebook and linked in) --Bertrc (talk) 01:03, 10 November 2022 (UTC)

Sorry I thought the troll collapse was added by the pro-slave rape guy.[edit]

Ignore the summary comment - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 18:23, 26 November 2022 (UTC)

Oh they did move it down so only their initial comment was visible and I looked like the troll. Sorry I am bit scattered brained and flustered atm. - Only Sort of Dumb (talk) 18:25, 26 November 2022 (UTC)
