Welcome to the Dollhouse! Let's have a three-way. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:06, 10 April 2010 (UTC)
Hey guys - thanks! I'm an avid reader, and will likely remain mostly a lurker (and supporter of all yous guyses wit that makes Conservapedia palatable). --Leotardo (talk) 21:01, 20 April 2010 (UTC)

Thank you! --Leotardo (talk) 14:02, 3 May 2010 (UTC)

You're not a beautiful butterfly. Do it like everyone else does please and stop indenting your posts with *'s. It's irritating. Nutty Roux (talk) 14:14, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Ah, I hadn't realized that what is accepted as a standard format for readability on other wikis is disdained around here since, well, nobody told me until now. --Leotardo (talk) 14:17, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
OK, I'll bite. What's an example of a wiki that encourages misuse of bullet points to indent talkpage comments? Nutty Roux (talk) 14:59, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
I don't know if I would say that there is a "wiki that encourages" use of bullet points, as much as it's not an un-standard way to respond, particularly if there are multiple responses to one comment that start to bleed together. I suppose if I named a Wiki you'd say "show me the diffs!" and then I'd say, "but I don't really care about this" because even after I was contrite you still really really care about the asterik vs. colon thing, huh? --Leotardo (talk) 15:45, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
It's actually a lot simpler than all that. The practice is so unusual that only 1 other person who edited on this wiki did it. When I see someone using *'s my first thought is, oh it's that asshole I blocked for 2 years for threatening to sue the site owner and who told me "I will see you removed from the Bar. You can take that to the bank." So my response is more visceral that rational I guess. I don't want to be reminded of a walking time-sink like TK when I see someone post here. Nutty Roux (talk) 16:29, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Hi Leotardo and welcome to RW. Wave.gif I hope you have a fun time here. But I'd just like to point out that our Newcomer's guide does recommend the use of colons. But, as Nutty says, the stars probably just remind us of somebody who pushes a lot of buttons for some people. Welcome again.--BobSpring is sprung! 16:39, 12 May 2010 (UTC)
Ah, got it. I have trouble watching boxing results because "TKO" reminds me of the same thing, so I can relate. No more stars. --Leotardo (talk) 16:55, 12 May 2010 (UTC)

Sysopery

Congratulations on being mostly harmless, Leotardo! You are now a sysop! Or "janitor", as I like to call them.

Now report for duty in the broom closet! You've got work to do! Here's your bucket, mop, and instruction manual! Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 07:57, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

As "I" like to call them? RA, the phrase predated you by years. Get over yourself. And Leotardo, congrats on your demotion. ħumanUser talk:Human 08:34, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I know. But I hadn't seen any mention of sysops as "janitors" since I came back, so I figured it had gone out of fashion. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 09:01, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Does this mean I have to write the David Frum article? --Leotardo (talk) 15:55, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Damn right it does! Now do it! The Spikey Punk I'm punking my punk! 15:57, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
I'm blocked and confused. Dazed, too. --Leotardo (talk) 16:20, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Click here... then click the Unblock link. You'll soon get the hang of it. Or suffer eternal torment. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 16:23, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Jinx drag queen

You are making me uncomfortable with this. Do you know he is one? Are you accusing him of being one to insult him? I don't think it's an insult. Are you trying to provoke him in some way? Please help me understand so I can get past this. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:08, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

I think it's a stupid nickname, but I also think it sounds feminine, which is ironic that a 37 year old Christian male would choose it. As a gay guy, I don't find the status of "drag queen" or "effeminate" or "cross-dresser" to be an insult, and in my art I've worked with some of the most internationally famous. I think Jinx think it's an insult, though, and so I say it to bug him (even if it's only in my imagination, I giggle that it never dawned on the guy that 'Jinx McHue' is such a drag name). But it seems to be bugging you, and it's easy to stop so I will. --Leotardo (talk) 03:18, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
I respect where you're coming from entirely. But it's a bit like calling someone "gay" or "retard", whether to insult them or get a rise out of them. Shaky ground. Just call him a moron or misinformed or something, I dunno. It's not really a big deal since I seem to be the only one who cares, but I think you see where I'm coming from? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:27, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
I do see where you're coming from and I'm of course speaking from a lot of personal history in feeling entitlement to use such humor, but that personal history is not obvious to anyone else so it's bound to be misread again. Thanks for the polite note about an angle I wasn't considering. --Leotardo (talk) 03:30, 20 May 2010 (UTC)
Indeed. The only male mannequin (torso and head only) I have was given to me many years ago by Vanilla. Vanilla had trouble walking due to abuse at the hands or feet of some assholes. You are indeed entitled to use the phrase as you see fit, but there is that other side, which you mention, of it not being clear to all. Take care and I hope I didn't come across as a clumsy censor over this issue. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:42, 20 May 2010 (UTC)

David Frum

Nice work on adding those headers! ħumanUser talk:Human 23:36, 22 May 2010 (UTC)

Thank you. --Leotardo (talk) 00:41, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Defaultsort

Do you know what I mean by that? It makes articles get sorted by, say, "Kristol, William" rather than the article title in cats and your new template. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:34, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I know about defaultsort. --Leotardo (talk) 03:35, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Cool. Wanna help me fix the political pundits who aren't done yet? You can start at A and I will start at Z? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:48, 23 May 2010 (UTC)
Apparently I did all the work, but forgot to add the template to some of them. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:58, 23 May 2010 (UTC)

Getting tired of your approach

Rolling back any time I edit after one of your edits? You're getting tiresome, my friend. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:25, 26 May 2010 (UTC)

Who do you think you are exactly? Are you the Queen of RationalWiki, and if you say something then it goes? Why don't you spell it out for me? Because I'm a little sick of you thinking you have the final cut on everything I create, particularly when you're removing information because you don't like the wording or make retarded decisions like having junky lists as the start of an article. So why don't you tell me how what you say goes around here, and I'd appreciate some back-up from your cohorts about how I'm doin' it wrong. --Leotardo (talk) 03:30, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
When you create/edit something that needs a bit of proofreading or rearrangement and I am the next person on the scene, guess what I do? Please discuss these endless reversions on the talkpages so we can get the best results. Your endless reversion of my edits following yours is prima-donna like and you also seem to enjoy insulting me. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:41, 26 May 2010 (UTC)
