Hi. Marginally Less Chaos!Audacity! 15:51, 31 July 2008 (EDT)
Wow. It seems I've given you two of these, now. You are much favoured by the gods, young Weaseloid. Marginally Less Chaos!Audacity! 15:53, 31 July 2008 (EDT)

I seem to have missed welcoming you while away. Greetings, Weaseloid, and welcome to the cookie cutter! Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:26, 17 August 2008 (EDT)

Contents

Article in preparation[edit]

You can create a sub page thus: Search [clicking "GO") for "User:Weaseloid/articlename" and clicking on the resulting "You can create the article". This means that when the article is finished to your satisfaction it can be relocated to the appropriate place. Just sayin' is all. SusanG  ContribsTalk 07:41, 1 August 2008 (EDT)

OK, thanks. Weaseloid 08:13, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
And you might like a link on your user page [[User:Weaseloid/Neutral‎]] so that in two weeks, when you've forgotten what you called it, you can find it again. (That piccy might have to go, on copyright grounds or not.) SusanG  ContribsTalk 08:27, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
If fair use policies are comparable to Wikipedia's, then screenshots from TV & film shld be permitted. Weaseloid 11:23, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
Fair use means that it's being used in an article about it (the film or prog) as criticism or explanation etc. not as illustration of some point about something else. I'll leave it for others to look at but we're wary about things like cartoons. SusanG  ContribsTalk 11:50, 1 August 2008 (EDT)
This is true, but I can cite precedent that this is not always the case. This picture appears in the article on Conservapedia. Anyhoo, I have now released the NPOV article out into the wild. Let it fare how it may. If consensus is to remove the picture, so be it. I hope that the Zapp Brannigan quote isn't removed though, as I think it's cute. Also it's a good Futurama episode, with some funny lines from Zapp about the evils of neutrality.Weaseloid 18:53, 2 August 2008 (EDT)

Question on Redirects[edit]

Hi there! Do you know how to do a "redirect" when there is no content/existing page? I know how to move an existing page to a new name, but if I'd like to just create a re-direct for "Ameircan Indian" to "native American" how do I do that. THANKS!--Waiting for Godot 14:43, 13 August 2008 (EDT)

I've just done it for you, but they're real easy to do. It looks like this. Just "#REDIRECT [[page you're redirecting to]]". weaseLOIdbite me 14:50, 13 August 2008 (EDT)

Nice find[edit]

Well spotted on Jizz's edit on Wikipedia! Jollyfish.gifGenghisRationalWiki GOLD member 19:04, 15 August 2008 (EDT)

Thanks, but it wasn't me who found it. It's been around a while - think it was on WIGO CP a week or so back, & it's linked on the Hi Jinx article. But it kinda fits well on his RW User Page, doesn't it. weaseLOIdbite me 19:08, 15 August 2008 (EDT)

I should warn you[edit]

Chick has been known to get litigious over the use of his work by other people. I think we're OK under fair use, though, in this case. New3.pngPink(Astronomy Domine) 11:45, 10 September 2008 (EDT)

Hmmm. It is on the Jack Chick page so I think it should be OK (although there are one or two elsewhere around RW). I thought there might be fair use issues over it, but I reckon it is justified. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 11:48, 10 September 2008 (EDT)


You blocked me?[edit]

For making you lose? Lose what? Oh, that's right THE GAME-ame-ame!

If there isn't a rule against writing "I lost the game" in an edit summary, there should be one. Everybody who looks at recent changes for next hour or two afterwards is gonna lose. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 16:58, 2 October 2008 (EDT)
But there is a rule that says that says once you have lost the game, you must inform everyone around you at the time. The rules of The Game supercede the rules of RW. ArmondikoVnarchist 04:29, 3 October 2008 (EDT)

Tits & Freds[edit]

Not much point blocking them, they're in Vandal group. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD member 15:32, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

MmmmmYeah, but if they're using multiple accounts to dodge the vandal brake, giving them a couple of hours block may help send them away for a bit. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~
Narr! They just increment their suffix if one's blocked. SusanG  ContribsTalk 15:41, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I blocked one or two in advance, just after account creation. It didn't do much, they usually come in two or three at a time and a wait a bit to do any blanking. ArmondikoVnarchist 15:57, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Maybe we should just turn account creation off sporadically. It works for some other wikis. (Well, it doesn't really, but they do it anyway). weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 17:10, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Or use a script that randomly rejects new accounts? --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 17:14, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

"Hence all the time spent on RationalWiki, when I should be doing more productive real world things"[edit]

Snap. I win.
Would you like some Christmas cheer? New3.pngPink(It didn't work on the last guy, but I'm very hopeful) 01:03, 6 October 2008 (EDT)

You've skipped two holidays there, Pink. Whatever happened to Thanksgiving cheer and Halloween cheer? Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 01:04, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
Cheer is always welcome, but Christmas is best confined to December (imo). What kinda Christmas cheer are you offering this early? Also, snap where? weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~
Snap in that your (gloomy) statements seem (gloomily) familiar to me.
As far as cheer goes, I thought maybe we could sing a carol together ^_^ New3.pngPink(It would be fun) 01:14, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
They are gloomy sentiments indeed. I might take them down again & leave them to rewrite at some less gloomy time. But I was fed up of the crap I had there before. I'm not really much of a one for carol singing (esp in early October) but I warmly appreciate the thought. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 01:20, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
We could make up an October-themed carol! It could be all secular and silly! New3.pngPink(Indeed, there is much scope for silliness in this idea) 01:23, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
It sounds interesting. Can it involve an owl in some way? weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 01:34, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
Yes, certainly! What manner of owl do you envision? New3.pngPink(Must haff spooky pictures) 01:41, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
Tawny owl. There's one lives somewhere near me & I've heard it hooting sometimes at night, & saw it once or twice. Also I had a dream a few days ago about having a pet owl. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 01:45, 6 October 2008 (EDT)
I'd prefer a wp:burrowing owl. They're ridiculously cute. New3.pngPink(That's a nice dream ^_^) 01:50, 6 October 2008 (EDT)

OK. I didn't put it in Fun. I just redirected from mainspace to there, because there were one or two red links to a non-existent mainspace article on anal sex. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 11:58, 10 October 2008 (EDT)

Barney the Dinosaur[edit]

How did you get blocked along with Barney the Dinosaur for having the same IP address? - User \pi 06:58, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

I don't know where you're getting that info from, but I can assure you I am not connected with Barney the Dinosaur, Drew Pickles, etc. I blocked Barney the Dino last night, & as far as I know I have not been blocked at all. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 07:11, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
Must have been reading the log wrong, I can't see it. I just thought it might have been an ironic coincidence that you blocked someone in the same library or internet cafe as yourself. - User \pi 07:18, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
No, I'm using my own laptop at home. I blocked DrewBot right after Barney so maybe you were just reading it backwards.
I see you've demoted Master of Puppets. Interesting decision. . . . weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 07:29, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
Why has he been particularly problematic? - User \pi 07:33, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
Not exactly. A few mildly racist edits & some silly ones (see for example, the first draft of American American Vernacular English). There is a very slight possibility he might be Jinxmchue. He appeared on the scene around the time Jinx stopped showing up here. So i did have strong suspicion, but I'm not so sure anymore. I'm probably a long way wrong about this. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 07:43, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
Well he hasn't contributed anything about penises yet, but I will keep an eye on him as I always do. Besides if we knew Jinx wouldn't delete pages and block users he could be a sysop here if he wanted. We already have 3 sysops that are prominent members of CP. - User \pi 07:58, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah. I wasn't saying it was necessarily a mistake. Just interesting. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 08:32, 25 October 2008 (EDT)
I assume everyone can make a good sysop with a bit of work, even annoying pricks like Wazza. - User \pi 08:40, 25 October 2008 (EDT)

Experiment[edit]

Yes, the ability of those people to accept superficially-plausible gobbledygook was amazing. I've stopped doing it a while ago, since I didn't want checkuser to be any use to them in finding all the accounts. CraigBell 19:21, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

I checked CraigP's edits & I wouldn't've known any of them were wrong, but then I'm no scientist. It looks likes a lot of those science pages aren't looked at much, which is quite a telling indictment for what's supposed to be an encyclopedia. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 19:30, 27 October 2008 (EDT)
Not all of them are wrong. That would be far too obvious. CraigBell 19:33, 27 October 2008 (EDT)

I need a mount[edit]

I need a mount, and I've heard weasels make very good mounts, do you happen to know a place where I can find a battle-trained weasel? InaVegt 05:07, 2 November 2008 (EST)

Weaseloid is himself a mighty and battle-hardened weasel. I'm sure you will find him a quite satisfactory mount (though he is a bit bumpy). Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 05:26, 2 November 2008 (EST)
Ina, be careful with your English idioms. Sometimes they can have a double meaning. ;)  Lily Ta, wack! 05:32, 2 November 2008 (EST)
What do you mean? InaVegt 05:49, 2 November 2008 (EST)
Mounting can refer to the act of sexual congress.  Lily Ta, wack! 06:19, 2 November 2008 (EST)
This is a highly unusual request. If you're anything more than four or five inches tall, then you won't be able to mount a weasel, either in battle or in sexual congress. Them's the brakes. I'm not battle-trained, although I am house-trained, and I am indeed "a bit bumpy". weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 15:28, 2 November 2008 (EST)
I see, perhaps I'd need to look around for the Dire kind, my kobold brethren often use such as steeds when out to kill them vile gnomes. InaVegt 16:31, 2 November 2008 (EST)
Curiouser & curiouser. I am not familiar with the "Dire kind". As to the gnomes, whence their vileness? Perhaps they are only misunderstood. Live & let live. Give Peace a Chance. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 16:56, 2 November 2008 (EST)
The gnomes steal our tools, mock our craft, kill our brethren, and encroach upon our territory, they WILL pay. To make it worse, they ride dire badgers. InaVegt 07:35, 3 November 2008 (EST)
Dire weasels are mighty beasts, about the size of a small wolf. I believe my brethren are the only ones who have the guts to use them as steeds, however. InaVegt 07:35, 3 November 2008 (EST)
I knew you were only house-trained, Weaseloid, but I had difficulty making "mighty and house-trained" sound dramatic.  : ) Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:58, 2 November 2008 (EST)
Sexual Congress? You mean like Ted Kennedy getting drunk and frisky with waitresses in the 80's? Or that guy emailing the pages late at night? ħumanUser talk:Human 21:34, 2 November 2008 (EST)

Stubbot[edit]

Regarding http://rationalwiki.com/wiki/index.php?title=Derek_Ogilvie&diff=0&oldid=256269, I agree. The stubbot seems to have become self aware and is running amok, adding stubs where they already exist. Can anyone fix it? Crundy 14:57, 9 November 2008 (EST)

Well, I kinda like having stub six times on that page. But yeah, I think it's fixable. If you look at the history, it had {{Stub}} & the bot didn't recognise this & added another, & did the same again when the second one was deleted. Presumably it only recognises {{stub}} & not the capitalised "Stub". weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 15:00, 9 November 2008 (EST)

Freemasonry[edit]

Just FYI, The content that you removed was, in itself, not fiction. The ridiculous spin was, and was for humor. To have an article in this wiki without humor or somekind of ridiculous spin about how CP, its cronies, or other ultra-right-wing nutjobs are at fault defeats the purpose. Cheers!--MAstEr oF pUPetStalk! 18:14, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Not quite sure what you mean. When I fact-tagged those bits, your comment on the talk page said "I made them all up", hence defining them as fiction. Yes, there's no reason why the Freemasonry article can't contain humour, but that doesn't mean making stuff up. Our mainspace articles are primarily factual with some snark & humour, but shouldn't contain false information. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 07:25, 18 November 2008 (EST)

The specifics of the sentences preceding the fact tags were made up. But you did alot of surgery on the article and removed alot of stuff. That's what I was referring to (e.g., operative masons and speculative masons are real; the statement about the speculatives killing off the operatives is (ahem) a "bit" of an exagerration, they didn't literally kill them off, but they did assume the whole group; the creation of the group was a self-recognizing endeavour (..."make them feel better about themselves"); the creation in the 18th century in England is fact; and as far as the Schlafly implication, well that's just the RW coming out. As far as fact-tagging, some of the information that you inserted had an obvious unreferenced negative bias, that I didn't change (what's good for the goose and all) but nstead I added balancing information. I think it should have been left the way it was (i.e., with both of our information in it), but I'm not into edit wars on what's supposed to be a light-hearted, spoofy wiki. --MAstEr oF pUPetStalk! 16:08, 18 November 2008 (EST)

OK, so put the factual stuff back in. The origins in C18 England are still mentioned. I only had problems with the stuff that was obviously untrue (e.g. peasants bitching about the King etc.). As for the Schlafly implication, we don't have to mention Conservapedia in every article. If there's no connection, implying that there is can be confusing & a little bit pointless. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 16:19, 18 November 2008 (EST)

I'm gonna leave it alone because it's not really all that important to me, but two quickie points:

  • Having a CP twist is (as has been implied to me earlier by one of the 'crats) is a definate plus for keeping an article in the mainspace (as opposed to being banished to the "fun" category).
  • I don't think that the bitching about the King thing would be out of character for our site... (entering good information, in an encyclopedic manner, with a funny and/or CP twist).

Cheers ---MAstEr oF pUPetStalk! 16:26, 18 November 2008 (EST)

Well, I disagree with you on both of those points, but if you don't want to pursue it further then I won't either. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 16:31, 18 November 2008 (EST)

Erm, no. If the picture is your own, then you have released it into the public domain by uploading it here, or at least made it available to other RationalWikians.

I found it in an really old book. By now it is in the public domain, but the photographer wouldn't want it being used like this. And it's only humorous to people with warped senses of humor. And maybe you could at least remove the captions and add them later (in a month) to make me more likely to load considerable numbers of photos here. Finally, you can keep the talk page caption, but keep it off the Felidae article. I'm asking quite more politely than the humor is. --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistorcat! 17:41, 17 December 2008 (EST)

Hey. Thanks for the apology. Debate is good; you just need to try not to take it so personally. If people disagree about an article you're writing or use a photo you've uploaded in a way you don't like, it's not a personal attack, just the wiki at work. You can certainly debate it, but the more you try to force the issue, the more people will make fun out of it. Again that's not vindictive, just the way things fly around here.

TOR blocks.[edit]

The fact it's a proxy is problematic--but let's be clear; this guy is a hate-monger who is repeatedly issuing personal attacks of a threatening nature against members of our little community. The "1 year" option is in the pull-down. If it's there for any reason, surely that is it. PFoster 10:40, 21 December 2008 (EST)

If there was a way of blocking Fall Down for a year, I'd have no problem with it. But blocking every proxy he uses for a year doesn't serve any purpose. It only takes him a few clicks to use a different one. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 10:48, 21 December 2008 (EST)
Fine. If it slows him down, good. If he runs out, all the better. Let's be clear--he threatened to "assrape" one of our users. If that's the kind of person we're dealing with, we need to talk about ways to prevent that PFoster 10:53, 21 December 2008 (EST)
Foster, I'm on your side about keeping Fall Down out. However, since he's using TOR, as I said, it only takes him a moment to get a new IP route. So blocking those IPs for a year doesn't slow him down any more than blocking them for a few hours or days. He will only "run out" if we block every IP used for TOR, which is what Conservapedia is attempting to do and really really not a road I think we want to go down. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 10:58, 21 December 2008 (EST)
Alright. Give me a better plan. PFoster 11:05, 21 December 2008 (EST)
Carry on as we are. Block him when we see him vandalising anything, but not for more than a few days. There's no magic solution, but lengthening the blocks won't make any difference for somebody we know is using proxies. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 11:07, 21 December 2008 (EST)
"Carry on as we are" isn't working. Look at the edits to Kels' user page. And Proxima's. This is, I think, serious stuff and we need to be dealing with it in a more proactive way...11:10, 21 December 2008 (EST)
We've got plenty of sysops. We can deal with him. There's a case for protecting some articles. How about protecting Fred Phelps and User talk:SusanG. That should make things difficult for the Fred vandal so we can concentrate on Fall down. Proxima Centauri 11:13, 21 December 2008 (EST)
I agree we've got enough 'sops to deal. It's a pain in the ass but it's not unmanageable. Don't really agree about protecting stuff, except maybe very temporarily while it's the subject of a repeat assault. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 11:20, 21 December 2008 (EST)
Put him in the vandal bin. From what I've heard, he deserves it. --"ConservapediaUndergroundCapacitorcat! 13:06, 22 December 2008 (EST)
All of his known aliuses are already vandal-binned. Problem is that there is no way to stop him creating other accounts or blocking him long term, since he uses a different IP address every time. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 13:16, 22 December 2008 (EST)
There seems little point in blocking proxies for a year or protecting pages. New proxies can be found and new targets can be selected. How many sysops do we have? I've lost count. Our legion of sysops needs periodically revert stuff? That's what happens on a wiki.--Bobbing up 13:14, 22 December 2008 (EST)
I agree with you Bob. I'm gonna unblock the IP that was banned yesterday. 'Twas only used in passing. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~
Maybe someone should delete the article on using proxies. I'd hate to find out that that gave him the idea. --"ConservapediaUndergroundCapacitorcat! 13:23, 22 December 2008 (EST)
I doubt it. I think he's an old hand at this game. He's told us that he's created accounts on other sites in the past to harass the people who got him banned from Wikipedia, so I expect he was already using TOR then. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 13:43, 22 December 2008 (EST)

UNDENT. "Our legion of sysops needs periodically revert stuff? That's what happens on a wiki." Agreed. Our wiki gets used as a platform for hate speech, editors repeatedly get called whores and are threatened with "assrape"? That's not what happens--or should happen--on a wiki...PFoster 13:34, 22 December 2008 (EST)

But it is what can happen on a wiki with open sign up. So we delete the hate speech and revert the namecalling. Neither blocking or protecting are useful tools against a persistent vandal. Boring them to death is the best solution. ħumanUser talk:Human 13:41, 22 December 2008 (EST)
Not what should happen on a wiki, but what does happen on a wiki (cf. Wikipedia, Conservapedia). As long as we revert & block (sensibly) then we're not giving in to it. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 13:45, 22 December 2008 (EST)
If we have a wiki which literally anyone can edit then, from time to time, we will get weirdos we need to revert. It's part of what being open means. We can either restrict editing or patiently revert until they go away. With so many sysops what's wrong with reverting?--Bobbing up 14:03, 22 December 2008 (EST)

UNDENT. I dunno--maybe it's my hang-up, centred on my recurring obsession about the lines we have between our on-line personas and real life. If someone threatened to "assrape" someone on main street, they could be locked up for it--maybe only until the cops have figured out whether or not the threat is credible, but it's something you can't do without opening yourself up to some sort of consequence. If I call one of my colleagues a whore in writing--in a departmental memo or in some written feedback on a student's paper, I would face some sort of consequences. Someone calls--repeatedly calls--one of our editors the same, in writing, and all we do is revert. That's not right, to me. If I call someone a "nigger" to their face, I deserve the punch in the mouth that's coming to me. Someone gets on here and uses "faggot" and "cunt" as insults, and is free to do so. This IS a community of sorts, and my--obviously minority--opinion is that as a community we should watch out for the real people at the other end of the tubes. I respect the consensus that's been expressed here, but part of me is REALLY angry that we can't/won't do more to take a stand for what we all would agree is right--that we should all be treated as human beings. --Paul. PFoster 16:31, 22 December 2008 (EST)

I agree that we shouldn't allow "assrape" names. If I remember correctly I personally changed at least one of the "assrape" names to something else. And by admin magic it's gone. I still don't understand the logic of futile year-long blocks of IP's, and page protection. What these people want is recognition and outraged reactions. Don't give it to them.--Bobbing up 16:43, 22 December 2008 (EST)
While I agree with PFosters perspective and feelings, the trouble with the 'net is the anonymity. It's also a blessing for many. Anyway, IRL, an offense has an identifiable perpetrator, who only exists in one corpus, and so they can be habeused and restricted (as long as caught, etc.) fairly easily. On the net, some jerk behind proxies has an almost infinite number of possible "bodies". I must say, however, that they do us a minor favor by using phrases like "assrape", etc., in that it takes no thought or effort to decide whether to revert or not. I know it is frustrating, but it's how an open website works, we're stuck with it. To avoid it, small wikis restrict membership one way or another. As far as big blocking and the like, you only have to look across the fence at CP to see how futile it is at preventing unwanted intrusions. ħumanUser talk:Human 16:53, 22 December 2008 (EST)
(Edit conflict. Reply to PFoster:) You keep repeating the terrible things FD has said, but you're missing the point that nobody is disagreeing with you about that. Nobody here is defending him, just discussing what we can and should do. Instead of ranting, why not suggest a solution. Giving long blocks to known proxy IPs is completely ineffective as it has no effect on his ability to use others unless we block a huge number of them. If you think we should block the use of proxy servers altogether (like Wikipedia does), you'll need to talk to Trent about it. I don't even know whether it's technically possible for us. In terms of consequences, there are certainly laws covering harassment, threats and abuse on the internet, but raising this case to the authorities would be a pretty big deal, and I don't feel that we're yet at the point where it becomes a necessity. wassaiLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 16:57, 22 December 2008 (EST)
My problem with the "defense-by-deletion" strategy is that there is no such thing as a history eraser button. Those words--words which are weapons and have the power to hurt--do not become unsaid with the judicious application of the rollback button. PFoster 18:09, 22 December 2008 (EST)
There's no way to make words unsaid any more than there is in real life. In extreme cases we can delete & restore articles so that the full history can only be viewed by sysops. wassaiLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 18:18, 22 December 2008 (EST)
And stopping it being said or reverting it when it's said isn't going to stop people thinking it or believing it. Even if you did put in a system, you have to remember that people will curcumvent it easily enough. Block an IP, they get a proxy, block all the proxy networks, they find a new proxy network you've never heard of etc. etc. Given those facts, you may as well leave it out in the open (practically, this means in the edit history as you don't want it in a current revision) and just plain, outright refute it and PROVE that they're wrong, which isn't difficult. Blocking a vandal isn't going to remove their peurility, reverting a troll isn't going to make them sane and rational. Trying to merely delete or cover things up permanently is basically just burrying your head in the sand of an issue when you can easily tackle it directly. People will see the harsh and hurtful words, but they'll also see the words of support and the words that counter the bullshit. ArmondikoVnarchist 19:19, 22 December 2008 (EST)

One thing to keep in mind when renaming trolls, doppelgangers, etc. and it's very important: After the rename - immediately after - you have to register the old name yourself, because it becomes available again.

It seems a bit messy & unnecessary to link to a person's contributions & block log just so that users can see their latest edits, since everyone who is interested would already know how to find that. If you must do it, a smart way would be in some kind of template to go on each sysop's article (like the "stalkbox" at RWW).

check my sig --"ConservapediaUndergroundResistorfeline fanatic 21:23, 3 January 2009 (EST)

I already did. Have you noticed mine?  :-D
Actually I was going to say about the signature: you need to move the option stuff to a subpage (or even all of the signature). 'Cause at the moment, eight or nine lines of code get copied whenever you sign. (See above, when you go to add a comment, & you'll see what I mean). It makes it awkward for people editing after you. But if you move some or all of it to a separate template, & put that template into your signature page, it will make what appears on the editing screen a lot shorter while the actual signature still looks the same. See Help:wikisig for help, or ask me if you're still not sure how to do it. WèàšèìòìďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:32, 3 January 2009 (EST)

Support or oppose the Science namespace[edit]

Weaseloid. After hearing the previous debates on the matter, I decided to call the matter to question. Since you responded to my original exhortation in the community standards talk page. I would appreciate it if you'd mosey on over to the debate page and cast a vote. No, this isn't a form letter. :-) Omniwombat 19:21, 11 January 2009 (EST)

I'm a bit hesitant to vote because, firstly, I'm not much of a science guy anyway so I would barely be involved in any of it, and secondly, I don't really mind if science is dealt with as a separate namespace or if we just ammend the mission statements slightly to include science/math articles in mainspace. I just think we need to work something out, because at the moment there are sciencey or mathematical articles in mainspace which are nothing to do with the missions, but I don't know whether I should be flagging them as non-mission or just ignoring them. However, I don't want to be the casting vote as to whether the science namespace goes ahead or not when I have no strong feeling either way.

Apart from the fact that WP does not exist to host "debates", you might not find them "neutral" enough for your purposes:

"Therian in the English language has two distinct definitions:

  • In taxonomy, the term refers to a member of the Mammalia subclass Theria, consisting of marsupial and placental mammals.
  • A therian may also be a member of the contemporary subculture of therianthropy, which is based on a spiritual and/or psychological identification with animals."

fundamentalism article[edit]

the fundamentalism article mentions christianity explicitly 20 times or so, and islam? at most once?, when islamic fundamentalism is at least as serious a problem as christian fundamentalism.


can you still say it's not biased? — Unsigned, by: 173.48.208.204 / talk / contribs

The bias is due to what the people writing the article know about. Many of us have encountered fundamentalist Christianity directly; & it's pretty easy to find Christian fundamentalist literature in English on the internet. If you have some expertise on Islamic fundamentalism, then you can certainly add some content about it, but if it's just uninformed rant like what you wrote at the Islam article, I suggest researching it a bit more first.

Simple. We think the way to avoid becoming CP is to give power to the people. We work as an ultra-democracy, known as a mobacracy. There are no leaders among us that the mob has not given power to.

Sorry for the long-delayed reply. I used to be a bit of a Seinfeld fan a few years back, but it hasn't been on TV much since where I am (the UK) & I haven't yet got round to putting up the cash for a DVD set.

What kind of troll am I?[edit]

I suppose the "don't feed the troll" template was about me, so I'm just curious. The only characteristic that fits is "Deliberately angering people", as two sentences of my mostly sincere post were meant to be offensive (as a respond to a person who called me a "retard" and "fucknut", but it didn't bother you then). As I said, I'm just curious ... --Earthland (talk) 19:52, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

A retarded fucknut concern troll. Any other questions? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 19:53, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
I've always been a bit confused with this "concern troll" label. Concern troll "specializes in visiting sites of an opposing ideology", I guess it's true for me (I'm not opposed to RW in general, but it seems that speaking against abortion counts as opposition). And the concern troll, of course, "should not be fed". However, "We welcome contributors, and encourage those who disagree with us to register and engage in constructive dialogue.". So the question is "what is a constructive dialogue"? This is a rather subjective term and gives a fascinating opportunity to label everyone who disagree as "concern trolls". --Earthland (talk) 20:01, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
Earthland is not a troll by a long shot from what little I've cared about. People need to stop throwing the term around so loosely. "Concern troll" was very much MC's game, it was practically the defining moment in World Championship Concern Trolling - it involves coming to a site, and bashing it repeatedly out of "concern for its well being". It does not mean "someone I disagree with now fuck off". Scarlet A.pngtheist 20:05, 15 January 2010 (UTC)
I also do not think Earthland is a troll. Acei9 20:15, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Earthland, you may not be a troll, but when you're deliberately angering people and meaning to be offensive, you are behaving like one. The point of my comment on Cgb07305's talk page is my advice to him not to respond to your rant as nothing good can come it. I don't entirely approve of a lot of things that other editors have called you (including ToP's comment above), but I think you have brought it on yourself by being unnecessarily aggressive & insulting. You accuse Cgb07305 of lying about his academic background when your only reason for doing so is that he's said things that you don't agree with. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:17, 15 January 2010 (UTC)

Why are you deleting useful redirects? Is there something I'm missing here?--ADtalkModerator 20:28, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

One was a misspelling - not very useful - & the other was "objectivist movement" which was only used once in an article, only two lines down from a direct link to the same article it redirected to. We don't need a "#####ist movement" redirect to "#####ism" anyway - if we did that consistently, we'd have thousands of pointless redirects. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:48, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, but I had changed previous comments from * to # so I was committed. Otherwise, Superfarts, I agree and do the same thing on high-traffic pages. ħumanUser talk:Human 10:10, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
I was posting in "Why do I miss those days?", which nobody else had posted in yet. If you're editing the last section of the page, while somebody adds a new section, does that EC it? Anyway, I don't much like the logic of forking a discussion into two sections of the same page just to avoid ECs. If you get edit conflicted, it's because other people are discussing the same issue you are at the same time - you just have to ride it out, because splitting that discussion arbitrarily into two is not a productive solution. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 10:13, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
I know it wasn't the most brilliang solution, but it saved my edit the way I intended it. Someone then merged them and I had to do the # thing again, but didn't get EC'd. Doesn't it suck trying to type and hit "save" fast in order to avoid anticipated ECs? Isn't it fun to be on such a lively site? ħumanUser talk:Human 10:30, 29 May 2010 (UTC)

(EC!) Yes, "add new section" does edit conflict whoever posts in the section above (I just tested it). You can EC yourself (at least in Chrome) if you post then click back, because the version of the page you're then editing has four tildes instead of your signature & timestamp. But that's not what happened here. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 10:20, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Sorry if I EC'd anyone by pasting my edit into "add new section". But I really don't think that is my fault. ħumanUser talk:Human 10:32, 29 May 2010 (UTC)
Yes, you can EC yourself. I do it a lot if the connection is a little iffy. It sends the data but the "return signal", as it were, gets stuck, so if you hit "save" again, you get the EC with yourself. Also, I think you might EC with the last section if you add a new one. I'm sure I've seen ECs happen and then when I press F5, I get no new comments, but a new section has been added (that's assuming those people used the new section link, of course, which can't be guaranteed, but you'd think it'd be so obvious as to be second nature to anyone who's made more than two-three edits to a talk page).

Move[edit]

You're supposed to undelete the deleted revisions of a page after you merge them. -- Nx / talk 11:05, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

I've never heard of such a policy and cannot find it in the page move guide or other relevant Help pages. If this is a real RW policy or practice, please cite where. If you just want a sysop to do something you're unable to do yourself, asking politely is more likely to get a positive response. I've restored the deleted revisions, since this is obviously a big deal to you, but I don't appreciate these patronising little instructions. You desysoped yourself and should accept the consequences of that. You don't get to dictate policy and tell other users to do your bidding. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 12:56, 6 June 2010 (UTC)
Talk pages (including user talk as well as article talk pages) and other discussion pages, such as debates or the Saloon bar, are community property. They must not be deleted, nor protected, although they can be archived periodically. Similarly, users should not delete or change another user's comments on a talk or discussion page. -- Nx / talk 13:00, 6 June 2010 (UTC)

Anti-sex stance[edit]

Sex is not necesary for this world since we can make test tube babies. Also, it's yucky, like some food from Mcdonald's.

And because you like my signature so much, I'll keep it, although I'll put it on prefrences like you said.

In the begining, God created... me. And He said I was awesome. 18:32, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Very few things are necessary but some are fun - sex is one of the latter. 18:34, 18 October 2010 (UTC) SusanG Toast
It's best to continue discussions on the talk page they start at. Anyhoo . . . Assisted reproductive technology is a very expensive industry, & is used only for couples or individuals who can't conceive naturally. It's not a cost-effective or desirable alternative to sexual reproduction. Sex is a natural instinct that many, probably most, adults find very pleasurable, as well as serving a biological function, for those who want to reproduce. If you find it icky, that's unfortunate, but it's a silly value judgement. Childbirth is also icky, as are test tube babies, & babies in general. In fact, most of the human body's functions could be described as icky. It isn't a sound basis for opposing something. €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:43, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Actually my real reason is so the human race can die out. I just use the artificial technology part to provide an alternative to rich people.

Sex is an icky function that isn't necesary for the survival of an individual. And there are a lot of fun things that aren't icky, like chess. And since there are porn and sex toys, you can get your sex pleasure from them.

Also, which article?

In the begining, God created... me. And He said I was awesome. 20:23, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Human race doesn't particularly want to die out. Chess is an icky function that isn't necessary for the survival of an individual. And since there are chess puzzles and chess computers, you can get your chess pleasure from them. Also what article? €₳$£ΘĪÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:05, 18 October 2010 (UTC)

Well we can't please everyone, lol. And Chess isn't icky unless you make it icky. Plus, there aren't much other ways of getting chess pleasure than the ones you listed.

In the begining, God created... me. And He said I was awesome. 03:04, 20 October 2010 (UTC)

We can't please everyone so let's kill 'em all, lol. Hmmm?
Again, if you find sex icky, that's just your opinion & is not a sound basis for opposing it. You can keep saying it, but it doesn't make you right. For one thing, you are in an extreme minority view; for another, there's nothing objective or meaningful about saying "sex is icky"; it's just a reaction, not a statement of fact. Why do you consider porn & sex toys preferable to sex with other people? Are they less icky in some way?

Still waiting for your source[edit]

I'm still waiting for you to cite a source indicating that the patterns for legalization of other drugs would be any different from the patterns after prohibition. Alternatively, would you like to simply state that there's no evidence either way, but that you nonetheless demand that we all pray to your legalizingdrugsincreasesdistribution god, whose existance you have no evidence for?--Mustex (talk) 21:59, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

What's to be confused about? You claim that references to prohibition are "irrelevant." Now, if we had good studies on the effects of legalizing these drugs, I'd agree with you. However, in the absence of such evidence, we have to rely on what data we do have. Thus, until you can cite a source showing that, for example, making heroin illegal reduces consumption, the fact that you believe that it "makes sense" is trumped by the alcohol data. Lots of things "make sense." The watchmaker argument "makes sense," but is still wrong.--Mustex (talk) 23:16, 18 April 2011 (UTC)

IPA is India Pale Ale, not Indian. In old times it was made in England for export to India & other colonies, not made in India.

About references on talkpages, why are they not allowed? I'm not saying they should be, I'd just like to know why. Ta fanx, MtDPinko Scum 08:57, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Because they're not a talk page thing. They're for adding footnotes & citations in articles, then putting a footnotes section at the bottom of the page. Talk page comments shouldn't need footnotes (brackets can be used instead for side-notes) & putting them there makes a real mess of the page. If you add refs without a references section, the ref isn't visible, and there's an ugly red warning telling you so. If you add a reference section at the bottom of the page, it interrupts normal talk page conventions as everyone would have to post above it, or else below it which then leaves references pointlessly in the middle of the page. Plus the talk page comments are signed by users who post them, while references sit unsigned elsewhere on the page. ωεαşεζøίɗWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 12:20, 28 June 2011 (UTC)

Hi Weaseloid, Do you really believe that when something like a brick drops its kinetic energy gets created from nothing like gravity physicists believe? (and remember that in Einsteinian physics there is nothing beyond E=mc^2 that can be legitimately called potential energy, partly utilised in A-bomb). So are you ready to prove that part of it gets changed into kinetic energy every time when something drops? Because if not then from where the kinetic energy comes from? Serious question which you might call "crap" but you should rather explain why. JimJast (talk) 21:04, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
You still haven't answered my question about badgers. ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:16, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
But I didn't call it "crap" did I? I just don't know what Badger is. But you know what brick is and know that when it falls it has more energy (which is call "kinetic" if you missed it in your school). I wanted to explain you everything what you don't know. For certain things you have to use your brain to respond so I won't call you a crypto creationist. So far you still are one since you believe as some physicists do, other creationists, that energy can be created. JimJast (talk) 21:47, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Have I ever made such a statement of belief? I strongly suspect I have not. WẽãšẽĩõĩďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:13, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

No. I have my own life to lead. WeaseloidWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:02, 29 June 2011 (UTC)
Do you really think that knowing why things fall would interfere with your ability to lead your life? Knowing too much is bad in RW? That's why you are against my explaining the people why they don't fly off the Earth despite the Earth does not attract them as discovered by Eunsteins almost a century ago? You don't like questions that you can't answer? Do you prefer the faith in creation of energy from nothing and that God did it? But yet a simpler way is to learn a bit of physics that is already discovered by Einsteins though not believed in by creationists. Even if they still prefer the "gravitational attraction", with its handy in such system of beliefs, "Big Bang", but impossible in the real world, since in the real world the energy can't be made from nothing. That it can is PRATT. JimJast (talk) 08:32, 30 June 2011 (UTC)

"oriental woo"[edit]

I'm curious... in the US academic system we were strongly discouraged from using the term "oriental" to describe anything, as it is (likes most things) a "white oppressor word" to describe an area that is so large, the cultures share nothing with eachother, not even a "racial" (so to speak) heritage. In other words, the term was as offensive as "indian" for our native people. Any thoughts? --Pink mowse.pngGodotSome would use a tautology to describe it ("The way things are done around here is the wa 17:06, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

I did have a quick look at WP:Orient when deciding what to call the category, & I'm aware that it's sometimes considered offensive (probably more in the US than the UK). I only really use the word to refer to historical cultures/traditions etc. - I wouldn't usually describe a person as "oriental" or refer to East Asia as "the Orient". If you've got a better idea for what to call the category, let me know, but I still think it's a pretty good fit. Re "cultures share nothing with each other", the fact is that ancient/medieval Chinese colonialism & trade spread Chinese cultural influence a long way, so many aspects of Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese cultures (for example) are at least partially adapted from Chinese influence. I think everything I've put in that category for now originates from either China or Japan. However, there is the question of whether Indian woo (e.g. yoga, chakras, ayurvedic medicine), which appeal to a similar New Age audience in the west, can also be classed as "oriental woo" despite coming from rather different cultural origins than the Chinese & Japanese stuff. ωεαşεζøίɗWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 17:25, 26 November 2011 (UTC)

Why don't you just undelete it bro, what's wrong with using proxies? By the way, this "vandal bin" as you guys call it is annoying, I don't know if this is something you have just for new editors or what, but it's not very welcoming. I dunno, maybe it's the proxy I'm using, but if that's the case I just use a proxy for the anonymity ever since the time some asshole moderator on a forum just didn't like me and DoSed the IP I was using. Lets just say the principal and the IT guys at my school weren't very happy with me when they found out it was a guy from a forum I was posting on that sent the whole school's network crashing down. Kate McCormick (talk) 23:28, 26 December 2011 (UTC)
I think we'll leave it for you to undelete, since user's pages are their's to do with what they want. As for the Vandal Bin, it's a security measure against vandalism which IP editors are, by default, sorted into. It's a pain, I know, but it keeps an anonymous IP from using a computer program to vandalize us. Recklessly Noise Punk What's this button do? Uh oh.... 23:31, 26 December 2011 (UTC)

Nobody mentioned anonymous proxies, the quote was about an anonymous IP. We don't care if you use a proxy. However, we have had some problems with anonymous editors posting personal information about someone else who claimed to be a high school cheerleader, so when an unidentified editor creates a page using what appears to be a real name and gives some personal information we act to protect privacy.

altering user comments[edit]

Armondikov altered my comment with [5]. I reverted, requesting it be left as-is, there is reason for red links in that comment, it shows that a page name is being suggested, and it will, in the future, show whether or not the page was created or moved. I was again reverted by you. So, for my understanding of RationalWiki practice, will you please explain this thing to me? I understand that some users don't like red links on article pages, though I've certainly seen exceptions. But on a Talk page? What's the problem? To what extent will the mob allow users to edit the comments of other users? It can be a very slippery slope, some people tend to get pissed off about it. --Abd (talk) 18:04, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

Nobody altered your comments. Removing a redundant non-link is not the same thing. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:46, 19 February 2012 (UTC)
The comment was altered, that's obvious, it was edited. The link distinguishes a pagename from text. The very point was that it's not an active page. Given that I was actually suggesting the creation of two different pages, this, then, makes the text less effective. It was not redundant, or did you not notice that the names were different? Suit yourself. If I find that I sufficiently give an eff, I'll ask about this.--Abd (talk) 19:57, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

I'm not trying to evade a community decision[edit]

My name is on the account creation for all those accounts. I could not defy a community decision with those accounts because everyone would know it was me as soon as I'd pop up. This was in case users like P-Foster and Ace McWicked decided to unilaterally strip me of my rights and block me, to ensure that I could protest their actions. And you know what? Users like P-Foster and Ace McWicked already have unilaterally blocked me and stripped me of my rights, and using sock accounts I had previously created helped me to get unblocked.

But now, thanks to the interference of you and Mikalos, my contingency plan has been compromised. You've brought unwarranted attention to my sock accounts, and the next time P-Foster, Ace McWicked, Nutty Roux, Archie Goodwin, and whoever I'm forgetting decide to unilaterally strip me of my rights and block me (which they've already done), they'll be conscious of my backup accounts and block and desysop those too.

Boy's club[edit]

For all that I think we are a boy's club, and often find it hard to "fit in" as it were, you are one of the single most forward blogs/wikis that's *not* devoted to women, specifically. And that's why I stay (other than also liking most of you as people). Right from the start someone made it a priority to include women's issues, and imediatly stomp down any overt or covert anti-woman sentiment. It's a good place to be, for that reason. But the very fact that 90% or so of the active posters are men, and the in jokes are so often male oriented, and the discussions about women's issues often have a male point of view, still makes it a boy's club. RW has taken the steps needed to change that, but it's not changing by and large because these kinds of forums and exchanges still draw men, and men talking with men will frame a male space. --Green mowse.pngGodotTut tut, looks like rain 23:05, 19 June 2012 (UTC)

True, and those are issues the RW community should consider (& why are you framing the RW community as "you" rather than "us"?). But I don't think that has very much with what Brennan is saying. I find it a little ironic that you side with Brennan in saying the community is male-dominated while citing Blue as the only other woman who posted in the thread, when in fact Brennan's post was attacking Blue (whom she doesn't consider to be a woman) as an example of male-dominance. ωεαşεζøίɗWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 23:17, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
Because I hadn't even read her article, (though I should) when I started to see a pattern in responses that sorta poked me. Something I'd seen done on abortion topics that are pro women, but largely said BY men. it made me bristle before I even read the article. I didn't want to get into it, and should have shut up, but didn't. ;-) As for Blue, you should know that my first reaction was shockingly just like hers. "but she's not even..." i was ashamed at myself for that thought. so i said nothing. I dont' know what to do with those kinds of feelings when they come up. They are intellectually invalid, but they are, nevertheless in my head. WE all have our biases. that's mine. Green mowse.pngGodotTut tut, looks like rain 23:26, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
And while I'm *confessing* as it were, the worst thing about my biased though on Blue, thinking "she doesn't even know what it's like to be a women", is that "maybe not, but she's had a hell of a lot more to deal with about being someone unaccepted in whatever role it is, and that's worse". but my "she's not even" spoke up sooner. Bad Tanya! Green mowse.pngGodotTut tut, looks like rain 23:28, 19 June 2012 (UTC)
That thought essentially conflates the female experience with womanhood. It's extremely common and broadly applicable to think that because someone wasn't born as x then they "aren't a real x" or they "don't know what it's like to be x," i.e. "immigrants aren't real Americans" follows the same impulse that leads to "trans women aren't real women." The issue with that type of thinking is that it assumes that there is one experience that is definitive of whatever identity group you're talking about - which is usually bunk. Blue Talk 00:06, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
And that all "x" feel the same way about things. I've worked with Native American women and Islamic women enough to know better. Doesn't mean i live up to what i *should* think.  ;-) you'll keep me in line! Green mowse.pngGodotTut tut, looks like rain 00:14, 20 June 2012 (UTC)
I love people like you, people who are proof positive that cisfolks can change. As for the others... I don't let it get me down. As some random cis person on the radio once said, people who are fundamentally transphobic will always find some way of saying transfolk aren't real whatevers. When we have vaginoplasty, they say we can't birth a child. When we birth a child (science is close!), they say we don't menstruate. When we'll menstruate (people have died attempting ovariplasty, but sooner or later it'll work), they'll say we weren't born female. And finally, when we say our minds were always female, they say we're lying. If you can't win, why bother getting worked up about the game? Blue Talk 00:40, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks for that. it's really strange to read it, cause it's like "yeah, THAT!". First question I was asked is "why were you at the bar, where you looking to hook up?" as if that somehow would make it less a rape. I hope things have changed in the now 30 years.

Thanks Nutty & Ace; I really appreciate that. But, having suggested that this mod election is irrelevant & unwanted (which maybe it isn't after all), it would be a little hypocritical if I stood for election now. I also do support reinventing the role (at least to some extent) but that's more to do with widening power rather than consolidating it. I really don't think the seven-guy STV popularity contest is in the community's interests, & having pointed this out several times to no avail, it would again be hypocritical for me to continue within the existing system while it remains unchanged. When the role is open to more candidates on a less capricious selection process, I'd be happy to put myself forward again.

I don't see any real point in running now that the discussion is effectively over and I've alienated myself enough by getting quite angry in prior discussions. I don't even think there are enough editors left who understand the discussion for it to go anywhere. It really does seem to me to be exactly the popularity contest people who purported to want order railed against in the bureaucrat system and that we're worse off for it. My real interest is in continuing to help the board but, despite doing the corporate filings and dozens of hours of research and other work, I'm not even sure I can win that election. I fear that the popularity contest is going to spill over there as well. Oh well. As for Ace's perspective, I mostly agree but we've had some heated off-wiki arguments. I don't think AD is a great choice. Good enough, but not great. He's just as disconnected from fairly enforcing new rules, though I think he's in it for the right reasons.

There is also a reality that we are some 60 years gone, and rape is defined differently now. Getting a women drukn to the point where she giggles at your toes, turning on a fan, or a box of crayons and then having sex with her cause she's too drunk to even realize what you are doing - is rape. It wasn't, just 20 years ago. Telling your wife it is "her duty" to please you IS RAPE. it wasn't before the 70's. If you are 21, and you have sex with someone 17 - that's rape today, even if she's fully consentual. that was hardly rape 40 years ago, it was normal. It's a useless comparison to make, it serves none of the arguments in making it. Green mowse.pngGodot Chúc mừng năm mới 20:54, 19 February 2013 (UTC)

Personally[edit]

I think it's funny how cat food might be advertised as having been grilled, or that it comes with gravy. My cat just finished his "Sea Captain's Entree," which the ingredients helpfully label as consisting of "fish" (just fish, not any specific kind of fish), animal liver, and meat byproducts. You have to wander if he gives a fuck about whether or not his food is nautically themed or not. I like to think my kitty prefers fish-based filets, but in all probability he chows it down just the same as anything else I give him, indifferent to such nuances as gravy, parsley, or poaching.--"Shut up, Brx." 01:50, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Best not to edit the barchives. An archive is an archive, so any new comments you add will probably go unnoticed by whoever was involved in the conversation, + making any kind of edits to an archive is usually frowned on. If you're replying to one particular post, you could contact the relevant editor directly on their talk page, or you could start a new thread if you think it's important.

Like/Dislike[edit]

I just thought you should know that the only reason I separated William F. Buckley's actions into "like/dislike" is because that's how the Stephen Harper page is formatted. You should change that page so people don't get confused, as opposed to just acting like a jerk in the fossil records area of the page. I put a lot of time into improving the page with citations and research into Buckley's life, how it's categorized was/is secondary to me, so I just copied the Stephen Harper page because that's what I thought Rationalwiki wanted.ClothCoat (talk) 17:14, 3 July 2013 (UTC)Clothcoat

I'd also like to add that the Huey Long, John McCain, and Mike Gravel pages also follow a very similar format, making it impossible to know what the hell the "right" kind of formatting is, especially since you aren't freaking out over those pages.ClothCoat (talk) 22:00, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, it's used on a lot of pages but that doesn't stop it being a shoddy presentation that dumbs down complex issues and people to the level of magazine filler & makes RW look like the liberal version of Conservapedia it's often accused of being. Why is wanting to legalize marijuana inherently something to like? Or laissez-faire free market economics something to dislike? Isn't it better to let the readers decide for themselves how they feel about these things, or at least explain why you think they should be seen positively or negatively rather than flatly dictating what readers should like or dislike? WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:41, 3 July 2013 (UTC)
I can agree with that but I was just using the format that I thought Rationalwiki liked. I had my doubts about where to put those so I just put them where they seem to fit "best". In retrospect I could have put a "Your millage may vary" section but it didn't come to mind. Also I thought it was important to separate the stuff that was obviously bad (support for fascist leaders) with stuff that was obviously good (rejection of anti-Semitism). Rationalwiki itself makes arguments for why legalization of marijuana is logical, so I didn't think I needed to make another argument on that page. I did explain a bit that getting the GOP into laissez-faire has been harmful because of their obsession to deregulate the economy, and other Rationalwiki pages make arguments against laissez faire, so I thought it fit there best.ClothCoat (talk) 23:11, 3 July 2013 (UTC)

Some people might argue such a thing but they would be somewhat missing the point, and really why should we pander to such oddballs?

When I said that Gender Identity Disorder is a disorder, you acted like it was a hate crime. Yet when I say that being against abortion is misogynistic, you say that I need to tolerate them.

ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 06:10, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I'm frikin' King Lear, and you alkies had nothing to do with it. Allow me to describe my mentality. Many times when I log in, I get the feeling that people here are waiting to pounce on my edits. I'm surprised that my article on Albinism or my edit on the greatest songs have survived this long. Let's see if I got the hang of stuff here. RW has a clearly defined mission—albeit one with possibly more detours than conformities. I have a sneaky suspicion that most of the articles here that are not related to Conservapedia, or are otherwise non-notable by WP standards, are far inferior to WP's versions, in some cases inferior to CP's. (Consider RW's Argentina and CP's Argentina. But quite understandable, huh. After all, RW has a disporportiante number of British editors, and the British have so little interest in what goes on in Argentina, huh?  :-D  —my compliments on how RW'ians can create internal links to CP though.) "Fun" in Fun pages can mean pretty well anything. Talk pages are ours—but they aren't. This ain't a social network site—but it has some aspects of one that can easily give people the erroneous impression of one. People here are worried over what the young'uns (let's say "KinderRats?") might think of stuff they might see here—don't want to give them the idea that this is a site frequented mostly by male internet nerds—yet some of you feel free to call others, including each other, cunts and twats. When people cite that the elder editors aren't being RATIONAL!!, you guys bingePsycho Killer included. Granted, I figure that many of you are Christopher-Hitchens-wannabes. You call your community portal the "Saloon Bar," you not only have an article on alcohol but a frikin' catagory devoted to it, and even a Fun:RationalWikiWikiWiki/Dive Bar—last attended by PowderSmokeLeatherAndPsychoKiller, but just as Hitchens was imperfect—being a cheerleader for Dubya, and leading a lifestyle that lead to his premature death—so might you guys not be so frikin' terse with your critics—this very wiki being a reaction to people who weren't only wrong, but allegedly assholian.

We generally don't link to essays from mainspace articles so I reverted it. It was just a 'see also' link which can't have taken you more than a few seconds to work on,   (so Nyeah, nyeah, nyeah).

Okay, so let's assume that what you say is true: essays generally don't go into the see-alsos, even often linked ones, even, might I say, RW's more notable ones. Very well, so why couldn't you have put that in the edit summary? Huh? Why could you have not simply typed something like "reverted, no essays in main named articles." 7 frikin' words? As for this "It was just a 'see also' link which can't have taken you more than a few seconds to work on" bit, what are you saying? What do you mean "work on"? Hide that it's an essay with a pipe? —e.g."I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki?" What do you mean "can't have taken you more than a few seconds?" Do you mean that I should have put back in my edit? If I put back in my edit, which I did, you would have reverted it, which you did and again w/o an edit summary. Had you said those 7 aforementioned magic words, or something like it, I might have at most reverted and upon you reverting again I would have taken it to the talk page—likely not even that—likely just left it alone. But you didn't. You took the drunken RW'ian asshole approach. Revert. No summary. (glug glug.) Therefore, I reacted. Then after my post on your page, instead of you taking the hint that I'm a bit ticked, you give me the dancing banana, and PowderSmokeLeatherAndBooze and Stabby chimes in. (I can imagine you guys IRL high-fiving.) Not RATIONAL!!, huh?

Feel better, alkies? Don't bother linking to your stupid essay—I've done it already, but have your drink. Your dead Atheist Saint Christopher would have been proud. (Was he cremated, and if so how long did it take for the fire to burn itself out?)

Cat, you're not much fun to deal with.

As for teh specific essay, it embarrasses me that it was written here, but it's not surprising. people say and do stupid ass things all the time. and you get on a band roll and add your own. and giggle and say "this is funny". The point of feminism, to me isn't to assume people don't do dumb shit, but to assume they don't do it often, and aren't overtly proud of it after the fact. hence the reason I don't think it would belong in an article about objectification. yes, that's exactly what the guys here did. But highlighting it says "and we don't fucking care if we did it". Green mowse.pngGodot The ablity to breath is such an overrated ability 00:12, 16 August 2013 (UTC)

I'm back. First off, I re-read some of my posts and noticed some minor grammatical and spelling errors, though the worst error is I put in "talk" pages when I meant user sub-pages; but the rest is reasonably accurate. According to this here page, Help:Edit summary, it says, "Always fill in the summary field. This is considered an important guideline. Even a short summary is better than no summary. An edit summary is even more important if you delete any text; otherwise, people may question your motives for the edit." I'll read the whole page later.

3 months later[edit]

Okay, it's been almost 3 months. I'm not going to say I'm sorry about the above because I stand by a lot of it, and of course I'm not expecting apologies from you or PSL, because I took you guys to task in my part-rational argument, part-rant, part going-off-tangent. Actually the King Lear bit was a bit funny as I think of it now. I never really got into Shakespeare, but let me guess, this Lear character was likely played with great drama. (Click this WP meta-article: wp:Wikipedia:Drama—I got a kick out of it the few seconds I saw it.) I hope and trust that my words didn't hurt you guys so bad—somehow I get the feeling they didn't: so again, I won't apologize, but I'll try to keep my rants against youse guys as minimal and infrequent as possible—ideally non-existent. I'll try to be a Vulcan—minus the repressed emotions—yeah, I'm going to act like a frikin' Vulcan. ("Excuse me, but your action was erroneous." "Piss off!" "Hmmp: fascinatingly illogical.")

I might have made a bit too much about the alcohol and yeah, there's likely an even greater amount of hypocrisy on my part as I did similar on Yahoo! Answers—though again, it wasn't in attack save for religions and maybe the big and bad. Ramadan section—de facto Islamic section—" No alcohol?!? Not even a few swigs to help me steady my shakey hands?" I suppose in time I'll post links to them here (most if not all, as my account there was suspended) in my user page. (Note to RWW'ians: Yahoo! Answers was the only site on my user page I was suspended on. You'd realize this if you actually had clicked the external links to them—suspended accounts tend not to be active (or at least merely dormant)). If by precious, you mean pretending moral superiority over references to alcohol, yes, I guess I was—still, a night with an alkie is generally a night wasted.

Btw, thanks for the edit summaries you guys are using on Andrew Jackson and Brazil. I checked wp:Pontiac's War and it confirms what PSL says—I read the article not because I doubted him, as much as I wanted to figure it myself. I think I heard it elsewhere besides AJ, and it wasn’t in the wp:Andrew Jackson article. I could have sworn heard it from a Cherokee over 10 years ago on a radio show about AJ, so yes, PSL obviously corrected my error. Also, in the Brazil article, I was half-right, Weaseloid go the other half.

Finally (for this edit at least) I reiterate my high opinions of the both of youse—and you too Godot. Civic CatTalk to Civic Cat 23:48, 22 November 2013 (UTC)

People who would never want to live under Hitler were calling for appeasement. That's not really saying they're Nazis. So again, you're dishonest. As for my "tirade", what I actually said was that the left weren't the only ones who engaged in what is considered sexual deviance, aka the conservative Mormons who practice polygamy.

Clog WIGO[edit]

The issue isn't that I don't understand it; it's that the WIGO is entirely wrong. The article says nothing objectionable, let alone what the WIGO claims it says, and it doesn't disagree with its source. I apologize for commenting it out if that wasn't the right thing to do, but my understanding about the voting was that it was more a comment on the content of the WIGO as opposed to its validity. - Grant (Talk) 19:35, 2 February 2014 (UTC)

I've posted my comments about the WIGO already on the talk page. Liberalaland does claim Obama was "incorrect" to cite the wage gap as $0.77 to the $, then links to a webpage giving exactly the same summary. And Liberaland is incorrect (as far as I can see) in stating that it is only "professional white women" who make 77 cents on the dollar: the cited report shows that white women make $0.78 to each $1 earned by white men specifically, while non-white women earn less than this, but so do non-white men. As I said on WIGO talk, I can't see how these figures work out at $0.77 to the $1 overall, but I'm not much of a statistician & obviously only looking at the headline stats here & not the source data & other ways it could be sorted. Meanwhile the report confirms that the wage gap across the baord is women earning an average of $0.77 to the man's $1, and I see no reason to doubt that unless it csn be shown to have been calculated incorrectly.

RE: Manifesto[edit]

Honestly I think you covered most of what I would have included, right down to his preoccupation with throwing drinks at people. The only other things I can think of at this time is a section on his classism (i.e. his "british aristocracy" spiel and his horror/contempt for anything beneath his ultra-privilaged bubble) which could well be rolled into the "magnificent gentleman" section, and maybe a few paragraphs discussing the contents of said manifesto (especially the last few pages where he "concisely" sets out his views on life, the universe, and women) and how it relates to established loveshy/pua dogma. In particular I remember being reminded of infamous loveshy bigwig/psychopath and all-round revolting POS Fschmidt (if you dont know who that is, check him out on FSTDT, hes one of the most repulsive contributors of quotes) as well as several other loveshy "intellectuals'" plans/wank-fantasies for their perfect new loveshy order, right down to enslaving all non-loveshy men and forcing all women to be breeder sows when reading that part. Indeed Fschmidt and co were praising him and hoping he murdered "the right people" mere hours after the shootings while heartily agreeing with his idea of a "perfect" society. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 12:24, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

Oh yes, and I think there definitely needs to be a section on the insane amount of wealth, privilege, and opulence he spent his life immersed in (and which he detailed with loving verboseness right down to the sausages on the fucking buffet table at his 5 star hotel he stayed in during in his regular trips to London) contrasted with his constant whining about how hellish and terrible his life is.

There's a lot of important stuff to be added, like accounts from people who knew Rodger (online or IRL), the various reactions from the MRA/incel manosphere (ranging from idolisation to disowning him), the gun control debate & Joe the Plumber, and the usual "crisis actors" crap about the shootings being hoaxed.

Ok then, ill try to add in more detail of his classism/obsession with his opulant life tonight/tommorow after work. It will take a bit of time gathering up sauces for loveshy reactions as well as similar manifestos from "big name" loveshies so I will try to do that somepoint next week (by which point someone would hopefully have beaten me to the chase and freed me from dredging a few dozen loveshy sites.)

As long as it doesn't cross over into obsessive detail, that's fine. We don't want to draw any more attention to the killer than is necessary to discuss the psychopathic misogyny (otherwise we'll be just as bad as the media). Nullahnung (talk) 13:09, 8 June 2014 (UTC)

No, I'm not. But none of the accounts I've seen (from involved parties on both sides of schism) support the view that it was the work of MRAs. If that's the "official story", I've no idea who is putting it about or making it official.

Thank you for the Hyde Amendment info[edit]

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound anti taxation, I think cancerous solipsistic capitalism will probably be the death of us all. I find it deeply disturbing there's no mention of the Hyde Amendment on the Wikipedia article for abortion. As a former and hopefully future Wikipedian, I wonder what else is Wikipedia not telling us? Amateur Encyclopedist (talk) 19:30, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

Yeah, I know you didn't intend to be anti-taxation, but the argument "if we object to X, we shouldn't have to fund it through our tax dollars" kind of plays into the anti-tax rhetoric. Re Wikipedia's articles, the Hyde Amendment is covered within WP:Abortion in the United States. I'm not sure that it would be appropriate within the main WP:abortion article as a global overview article. WèàšèìòìďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:15, 9 July 2014 (UTC)

It's a bit of a rhetorical straw man. Some users (myself included) argued that a person who showed tendencies towards paedophilia shouldn't be banned.

The cause of "righteous justice"[edit]

It's badly ironic that a site called RationalWiki is talking about their no-compromises intolerance against a naturally occurring kind of human. My calmness is directly proportional to how reasonably you behave towards me. For instance removing texts into which I collectively poured hours of work and have paid attention to only give good scientific and professional citations, to not fall for any fallacies in my reasoning, to remain relatively calm even against the most aggressive people, removing these without even giving a proper rationale or addressing even a single argument put forth in them or showing any of the given citations to be faulty, and then putting up censors that prevent me both from reposting these texts and from creating new ones on the same topic by filtering common words and citations I use, is not to be expected to help me remain calm. I'm already being overly tolerant towards your behavior. I don't know how much time you people have at your hands, but unfortunately I still haven't retired, and it will take a lot of time to "fight" against your intolerance in more powerful ways. If you continue like this I WILL look into ways to do it though; if you agree to tolerate my existence and accept that many of my arguments are essentially sound (and explain my why the rest aren't), we can progress. 95.211.60.34 (talk) 18:58, 7 August 2014 (UTC)

How about you register an account, because you seem to think there's hate for you, when really people are just used to stripping random anon IP whining from talk pages.
The fact that your opinions, after some review, are wrong, doesn't counter the above point. Ikanreed (talk) 19:18, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
Someone like RNS or Mikeal will just come along and ban the account again, eventually. On that topic, is there a history log of the removed talk page of the banned account "Drotsky"? Looks like it was removed permanently? I separately archive all the lengthier posts I make here for future reference, but I don't archive people's responses.
Oh and, if you can explain to my how my opinions are wrong, that would be great. :-) 128.204.203.103 (talk) 20:42, 7 August 2014 (UTC)
You've been told repeatedly that pedophile advocacy isn't something we welcome or are prepared to host on our site. Again, as I've told you before, I think you will find websites open to this sort of thing, but RationalWiki isn't one of them. You are repeatedly evading bans and abuse filters to post the same things you have been banned for. This is not acting in good faith, and your threats to "fight" are certainly unwelcome.

Would you please e-mail wikipedia's Arbcom and say I'm a constructive editor over here?[edit]

I would deeply appreciate, one reason being so I can see how much copy pasta taken from rational wiki they reject. Wikipedia still doesn't mention sexism in drug testing on any relevant page (even sexism), and someone needs to add where the term African American was first widely used by Malcolm X's Organization of African-American Unity. That's slightly different from coining the term, but people who only popularized terms normally get mentioned in linguistic histories as well. I actually do care about wiki projects, I just got a little carried away doing categorization spree's and didn't know about point of view wikis like this one, where racist and homophobe are actual categories.

TERF[edit]

What I mean is the tactics and rhetoric are the same (posting nudes, doxing, threatening people and publicly hoping they kill themselves, linking up with other hate groups with complete dissimilar goals, shutting people out of group events with threats of violence, etc) and it comes from the same angry, entitled gatekeeping mentality that group X aren't true gamers / women and are trying to ruin everything, and so deserve whatever shit can be thrown at them.

Genealogies that show a separate line are not in opposition of each other you thick-headed dopey cunt. One shows the mother's line, the other the father's. There is no contradiction, there would be only if they were both telling us of the father's line. Before you rollback or make a change, read the talk page and make your point in there.

Apologia[edit]

Hi, I'd appreciate it if you wouldn't make a judgmental comment like that. If you'll noticed I added additional content and links (including descriptions of the bad nature of "manosphere sites), and replaced snark with more neutral and factually written content. This may not be Wikipedia but the ratio of "snark to substance" shouldn't be excessive - it's also a fact there are legitimate dating advice sites which get lumped into the PUA category (some of these openly call out PUA materials like ReturnOfKings as being garbage) - so you're painting it all with a broad brush. Believe me I know because I've investigated many of the websites and books - what is your experience with the materials?

Please don't simply revert and use an ad hom, thanks. Some information was also incorrect (ex. Tucker Max isn't a pick-up artist - he's the author of a black comedy book called "I hope they serve beer in hell").

You're changing a longstanding article's PoV and need to seek support from other editors before doing that. I've reverted your changes yet again other than a couple of additions to the notable pick-up artists list. Please stop edit warring, use the talk page & wait for comment from other editors.

WẽãšẽĩõĩďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 20:35, 21 December 2014 (UTC)
Actually dude - if you'd taken the time to read the article you'd have seen that there is conflicting POV throughout the article. The article as it stands already confirms that some PUA resources overlap with mainstream, non-"scammy" dating advice - (this is backed up by other sources as well which I can add later) - my attempt is to focus specifically on specific PUA concepts and individuals which are controversial. I added actual examples of advice (including normal advice, and the manipulative and scammy advice the article references) which the article included very little of to start with. The article's POV wasn't changed.
Much like an article on creationism shouldn't just read "creationists are all stupid uneducated nutjobs, etc etc" - it should focus on specific beliefs creationists have which makes them so (ex. "creationists literally believe that Noah's Ark existed, etc").
It doesn't sound like you're actually interested in discussing the subject, or even remotely informed on the subject at all for that matter. Instead you just display a lack of social skills by threatening a "vandal break" for an edit which clearly isn't vandalism. This isn't Conservapedia - you should be more civil than that rather than lord your admin privileged over others; there's no point in reverting an edit which isn't pure vandalism if you're admitting you're not active in the page anyway.

Vagueness[edit]

With regard to this edit, I mean, let's face it, the user who added that was just hoping that someone wouldn't pin them down to specifics. But you did. The truth is, no one knows much about Caligula, because all the historical accounts are heavily biased. I wish it were otherwise, but we really don't know much about him. It frustrates even revisionist historians. I hate that it has to be this way, but it does. Landmartian (talk) 00:14, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

The information was taken from a bunch of top ten lists, I just thought it was unusual no other historical figure is accused of being quite that evil. Why weren't more figures accused of having peoples children raped to death infront of them and eating their enemies genitals? Those are great false allegations to make; I'm fairly sure some of that did happen because no one else in history is accused of doing that; not even Elizabeth Bathory Jack the Ripper or Vlad the Impailer are painted as being that bad. Exiled Encyclopedist (talk) 23:05, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

We need to make slave owner a category[edit]

Wikipedia doesn't mention how many slaves Washington, Jefferson and Jackson owned either; they say nothing about the slaves in the white house up until 1965 during Lincolns presidency. Also, I know I don't have proof; but I like to talk alot and at least try and be polite, I asked Ryulong on his talk page back on Wikipedia to allow category size change for Super Sentei Power Rangers and Ultraman. He viciously defends the super sentei page from mentioning it has size change, while on his talk page here that Japanese television doesn't matter. [19] Feel free to test his short fuse and misogyny by adding this category to super sentei; for added measure adding it to other movies with giant women will be extra annoying. The only thing sillier than macrophilia is macrophobia, particularly when it's about sex. Ryulong doesn't appear able to delete the record here, just flash mob discussions and have them closed after a day. I'm afraid this wiki is terminal.

David Gerard deliberately forgot to delete slave holder from Muhammad. Hope some of this is useful to you; I at least want the presidents pages to mention how many slaves they own; even if their is no category. Exiled Encyclopedist (talk) 23:05, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

I could use your assistance on the rape page and with Ryulong.[edit]

You were right about Robot; Ryulong edited his Wikipedia talk page to say I never tried to make peace for the edit war we had over size change in fiction. He hates women, particularly impossibly powerful ones. I think unremitting horror should be applied to rape; and if someone would like to argue it isn't sexism in some form until there's an equal number of women raping men and men being raped, they can feel free.

I don't know anything about libel, so I'm perfectly qualified to say that I really don't think that's libel. It's just being a little bit mean, which sucks, but libel it aint. Tielec01 (talk) 07:13, 18 February 2015 (UTC)
He categorically did not "libel" you and it's not possible to "libel" a bogus and conclusory "legal" argument. You must justify your claim of "fair use", which you didn't bother to do. You simply asserted it. And it was unsupportable. There is no reality in which a picture of Voldemort, for example, used to window dress your own material, whether or not it's educational, on a completely unrelated subject passes fair use muster. But prove use wrong and go through the appropriate analysis. In short, let me suggest that as an outsider on your way out, you be very careful attempting to intimidate editors here with your "legal analysis" unless you know what you're doing and are prepared to deal with the consequences.

Arcane here. Someone under the name Weaseloid came and spouting some BS on my KS talk page and did some other retarded nonsense, I laughed it off, and IE was willing to just let it go. Unfortunately, Tau Ceti went off on his own initiative here to start something, and both me and IE told him it was a stupid idea and to drop it. I apologize for this whole sordid business and both you (Weaseloid) and RW have my apologies for this nonsense being dragged over here. For the record, IE has no intention wanting to start shit here and I've been trying to be the conscience, if you will, as to why no further BS should be started (it was foolish to begin with IMO), so again, both yourself and RationalWiki have my apologies this nonsense got dragged over here.

Those redirects to Rosemary[edit]

Why did you think they were deletion worthy? FuzzyCatPotato™ (talk/stalk) 17:18, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

They were terms that are not explained in the article, that nobody would search for, and they clutter up the search-box autocomplete with meaningless cruft. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:41, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
If alt names were listed in-article, would that work?
If nobody searches them, then there's no harm; if somebody searched for, say, Compass plant, they probably wouldn't know or be able to find out from RW it referred to Rosemary.
Sure, redirects fill the autocomplete box. Just type "200" into the search box. But they're still useful, for internal links and people searching for an exact name. FuzzyCatTomato (talk/stalk) 20:33, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
They're useful when they're useful. Creating dozens of redirects from arcane terms to pages that don't explain them is not useful, and "no harm" is a shitty rationale. These "alt names" simply aren't common enough to be worth noting or to be terms users will search for. "Compass plant" rarely if ever refers to rosemary (see WP:List of plants known as compass plant). Similarly, if there's a connection between rosemary and the phrase "old man", it's not covered in our article, nor in WP:rosemary or WP:old man, so anyone wondering why the phrase "old man" comes up in autocomplete and directs to a list of medicinal plants would really be left wondering. Listing these names in the article won't be helpful either as it will do nothing to further our missions of analysing and refuting things; it will just add yet more trivia to what's already a rather listcrufty piece. WėąṣėḷőįďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:23, 29 March 2015 (UTC)
Rusmary (as one example) is a pretty common Indian term for Rosemary. It's certainly possible that someone will search for it. The same is true for other names.
The only plant on RW which compass plant applies to is rosemary; when other relevant ones are created, Compass plant can ascend from redirect to disambiguation.
Why would listing alternate names be trivial? Knowing what something is, is important to knowing what it does.
Would you agree that some of the redirects may have been useful? FU22YC47P07470 (talk/stalk) 23:32, 29 March 2015 (UTC)

Two things: 1: You might need a "conservative wingnuttery", "neoreactionary wingnuttery" (etc.) page for non-libertarians. 2: You can't "detonate" a category on RationalWiki, because we don't have recategorization bots, so every article has to be manually removed from the article -- you've got time. FuzzyCatPotato™ (talk/stalk) 01:15, 2 June 2015 (UTC)
Ok good to know. Weasel (understandably) hates the page and wants it gone, others want it broken down to various degrees. I'm going to just break it down between authoritarian and libertarian and then break down "authoritarian" further as you suggested, basically phasing out the extreme wingnuttery category completely. Let's see how that works out it seems like a win for everyone (for now). ClothCoat (talk) 01:18, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

Not all conservatives and libertarians are wingnuts. Wingnuts tend to be anti-science and pro-conspiracy theory, and those on the same end of the political spectrum tend to support similar "theories", hence the categorization. ClothCoat (talk) 01:36, 2 June 2015 (UTC)

BoN voter franchising[edit]

So are you reverting me for the sake of it being me and the BoN's voted to keep or is he acually allowed to vote when another BoN with more edits (and a longer history locally) had his vote struck out by someone else?—Ryulong (talk) 01:04, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

I don't see any other struck out votes on that page. If you think a genuine RW policy/guideline (rather than one in your own mind) has been violated, the onus is on you to demonstrate it, not to revert war. If it's a judgement call, frankly it shouldn't be yours. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 01:10, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
70.61.121.86's vote was struck out by himself. I was striking out 98.27.29.192's vote.—Ryulong (talk) 01:16, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
(ec) RationalWiki:Community_Standards#Voting (which you linked on the BoN's talk page) refers to "policy votes, which seek to change the Community Standards or similar official policy documents, or penalty votes, which seek to penalize (or change existing penalties for) a user", not AfD votes. To be best of my knowledge, no one ever formulated any "minimal requirements" for an AfD vote. Carpetsmoker (talk) 01:17, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
Fair enough. I just thought AFD counted. The other BoN still withdrew their vote though.—Ryulong (talk) 01:18, 3 December 2015 (UTC)
Didn't stop you claiming they "had his vote struck out by someone else" though. WéáśéĺóíďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 01:28, 3 December 2015 (UTC)

Your undo[edit]

You are probably right that my footnote was not where it should have been. However, I was making a point about how gays are of positive benefit couched in economic terms. That may be patronizing, but I live in a country, where gay parades account for 20% of the population or so or more, and I'm personally totally indifferent to people's sexual orientation. But in this country - you can find out which by a little digging - gays are very valued guests. :-) Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 18:40, 20 December 2015 (UTC)

For clarification[edit]

I asked a question on my talk page, but since you're probably busy, I'd like to draw your attention to that, namely, what is ‘substantial’ in this context? The „sentence“ is really only an admonition to stick to RW-rules. Fine with me. The quotes in „sentence“ actually refer to that. I'll gladly comply. But does this mean that others may make substantial changes without discussing first at a whim? And, yes, I know that it is not considered good form to draw attention to one's talk page, but I may perhaps be forgiven this one time. I really am curious. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 18:19, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

Sorte has now set forth an elaborate stmt of intended definace[edit]

IN the "Summing up" section of his page. He's telling you and the community what his terms are. That which he find unacceptable he intends not to abide by. Paravant blocked or binned for such stated intent to defy. ---Mona- (talk) 20:33, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

I'm aware of it. I'm not going barter terms with him. Nor with you. You're both dragging this thing out while everyone else is over it. If Sorte doesn't stick to what's asked of him, he'll get what's been promised. As long as he's just pontificating on his talk page, my advice is to ignore it. WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 21:25, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
I'll stick to my end. The question I'd like an answer to is, for how long will Mona hold the power of veto? You can despise me all you want, but this deserves an answer. If it's perpetual, then there's nothing to be said for RW. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:11, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
This is a mobocracy, so no matter what the official answer is, the actual answer is "until you prove that getting rid of you will be worse for the wiki than putting up with any shit you get involved in". Try fleshing out some of the stubby articles or go to the Revent Suggestions and create desperately wanted pages? Instead of edit warring with others? CorruptUser (talk) 22:15, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
I suggested this myself. --Castaigne2 (talk) 22:21, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Mona doesn't have any "power of veto". I think I've made it clear that I won't take orders from her. ЩєазєюіδWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 22:33, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
She seems to think so. In any case, I did read and reply to Castaigne's suggestion, and I am actually having some fun. I'll stay cool. But as long as we are both here, there are bound to be clashes in the future. Chomsky happens to be an interest of mine, never mind what Mona thinks — including owning the article, and I'm not saying this to provoke. I'll try and sin no more, but try and snark about Chomsky and it will be reverted. It doesn't have to be me. But, to repeat, there won't be any problems for the next months unless Mona has acquired more articles. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 22:39, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
You may have been punished, Sorte, but the price for making that happen -- the cost extracted from me -- has been too high. Avenger, Arisboch, Castaigne, and you. This wiki tolerates them all, unless and until they formally break the minimal rules. It's not worth it. Arisboch and Avenger and/or their pals from KWFThe BoNs will still be allowed to head right for the articles I edit and harass me, as will Castaigne. I can't keep asking for, and expecting, standards of civility and reasonablenss at a wiki that has no collective will for them. One of the moderators here is now contemptuously insulting me, and mocking my stress at what was done to me through attacks on my family last month. That's appalling, and abusive.
So I'm leaving. I first must figure out how to copy certain articles in the form they are in now, before you and the Zionist fanatics and haters tear them apart.
Once I get my articles settled at my User page, I will be gone. And the wiki will be left with an asset like you. You and Castaigne are what this site wants. So be it. I won't accept those terms any longer.---Mona- (talk) 22:56, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
I'll keep it short. I wish you the best in your future endeavors. --Castaigne2 (talk) 23:08, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Huh. I did not see this coming. Sorte, you are too intentionally confrontational. "there are bound to be clashes in the future." This is inviting conflict. This is not useful. It doesn't help anyone, least of all the wiki. It shows that Sorte does not have unbiased intentions here, and is trying to push his own personal agenda on the wiki. I'm not going to talk about whether Mona is guilty of this right now. It's not being argued. I don't want to discuss it. We are all here to talk about you, Sorte. You may not have caused this war, but you exacerbated it and made it grow to 50 times its original size. You were on trial, and you were convicted by the mob. Now you're going to dictate the terms of your probation? That's ridiculous! Be advised, if you break the terms of your sentence, you will be punished according to the terms dictated by the mob at the coop. Pbfreespace3 (talk) 23:09, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
Could you sound like more of a prat? Even I, at my most bombastic, don't sound so much like a scolding kindergarten teacher. --Castaigne2 (talk) 23:14, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

(ec) I was being realistic. I have something to say about Chomsky, and Mona is not an expert on my points. But feel free to welcome me back, or not as the case may be, and gather a crowd. You can't accuse me of not being up front. I stick to the terms. I'm not dictating. I just saw the future, although I didn't see Mona leaving. But if the mob in the aptly named mobocracy cries for my blood, then by all means. Sorte Slyngel (talk) 23:18, 28 January 2016 (UTC)

You are free to do what you want Sorte, but we are free to ban you for breaking the rules. The mob has spoken, and in the words of FedTruther our Statetheist religion has received the holy words from the king of the all deities here, Coopiter, that should you break the rules we shall smite you for a week. CorruptUser (talk) 23:37, 28 January 2016 (UTC)
For once I'm a bit nonplussed. RW has always had the opportunity to chastise me, punish me or whatever for breaking the rules. I will keep my promise. Mona's departure, if she is indeed leaving, has nothing to do with that. I don't celebrate her going. This isn't victory for anyone. If it felt like victory, I should certainly be be banished from human society. As for FedTruther, Statetheist and Coopiter, I'm too lazy to look that up, and it is also late. But if you want to gather a lynch mob in, say, two months time, you can read my talk page. It states my intentions. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 00:01, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

Chicken Coop[edit]

With regards to mucking around with the sections, how else is the community actually going to vote on proposals to resolve the situation? A talk page format is far less useful, especially in the chicken coop, which is designed to resolve conflicts between people.

Pbfreespace3 (talk) 21:28, 17 February 2016 (UTC)

I have not prevented anybody from voting, but the proper place for new sections is at the bottom of the page, not arbitrarily between some of the existing sections.

Pizzameister Deal[edit]

What's the deal with Pizzameister? I'm not trying to contest any decision that you made, I just wanted to know what the damning evidence was that Pizzameister was a sock. I had suspected it for a while, especially because of the nature of his appearance (right in the middle of an important coop case), but I really didn't get the sudden reveal. Do you know what I mean?

OK, I would want you to explain your side of the Sea Shepherd issue[edit]

Before you revert or undo take the time to think about what illegal means. Sea Shepherd doesn't make any distinction based on legality. You should ponder before you undo again. Of course I'll lose a protracted battle over this, but I would like to see your point of view. What's legal in this case? A lot is legal. Sea Shepherd is against all of it, legal or not. Don't let your personal tendencies spill over. My edit stands for itself, although I will probably in the minority of just a few. No matter, I'm used to that. But what is your conclusion having brushed up on the law? Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 01:02, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

I've responded on the talk page where it's appropriate. Thanks for the patronising lecture though. ΨΣΔξΣΓΩΙÐWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 01:05, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
The lecture wasn't patronizing and vandal binning is far too much. Methinks you grabbed the first opportunity. I live in one of the few countries where whales are hunted and I happen to know a bit about the subject. Now, I'd suggest you pull me out of the bin. I have a clean record for the time being, and that has to say something. Your binning was abuse of power. And in any case, since it's late over here, for how long am I binned? I'm judged for a trivial matter based on the green opinions of one particular moderator. I explicitly said, which was to be my final entry and said I would do no more. That was honestly meant. I've given up on edit warring because it's not producive for anything, but as a moderator you have followed every step of the way and edit-warred yourself. You at least seem to undo this matter as a reflex, sight unseen or at least with a very limited knowledge of maritime law. I don't want to run for help crying to other moderators as seems to be a favorite tactic, but if your vandal binning is overly long, then this will have to be taken up in a larger group. I've been seclusive for quite a while, and it is irritating to see a trivial matter becoming an issue. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 01:37, 5 March 2016 (UTC)
OK, now I'm apparently free. I just have one question to ask: On which possible grounds were you removing the illegal. I really don't care, but it would be curious to know, nevertheless. You can cite me chapter and verse about my sentence, but that sentence doesn't include whaling, and you started undoing relentlessly knowing that you're a moderator. Not an exalted position. As for me, I have mostly been tending my garden in fits and spurts, when I feel the need. With authority (moderator in your case) comes responsibility and that means you can't go on searching for fights just for the fun of it. Check out my contributions from last month. You'll see mostly harmless stuff, which according to Douglas Adams pretty much the current situation. And, as always — how do you define legal or illegal, or possibly your legal assistant? I'm quite relaxed as is and don't intend to involve more than necessary. And, finaly, I don't take kindly to be bullied which was your tactic here. Cheers Sorte Slyngel (talk) 01:55, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

This belongs here[edit]

Somebody said, that one should never attribute to malice when stupidity is sufficient. Since stupidity is not an issue here, I have to conclude malice. As the one who started edit-warring, you bear the blame, and judging by the very fast responses I have to conclude that you deliberately provoked this bout. Otherwise you would have to believe Sea Shepherd's official propaganda, and I don't think there are many here dumb enough to do that. Sweet dreams Sorte Slyngel (talk) 15:36, 5 March 2016 (UTC)

PS: After today's system crisis, I checked whether I had left any loose ends. It turned out I did, but among many nations not replying is accepting. So until you analyze yourself as you should, I can only think that you've got nothing of substance to say and implicitly agree with me. Remember: Vendettas bad. Bullying bad.

Why keep Alternate and Patent Medicine separate?[edit]

Herr FuzzyKatzenPotato (talk/stalk) 02:06, 7 March 2016 (UTC)
