Very sorry to hear that, now get back to the books

Hey RA. Speech time. I don't think I've EVER had a serious moment here on RW, so this is the first one. You're young, and supposed to be studying. You have energetically thrown yourself into RW, but many of us here are not like you. I, for one, am a hell of a lot older than you, self-employed and have the luxury of having the time to focus on RW. You don't. These are crucially important days for you, and how you do in your studies matters a LOT to your future. RW will not die without you, and even if it did, it wouldn't matter much, if at all, in your life, in the long term. So - ignore us, we'll miss you, but I for one would rather you turn into a useful, educated member of society. Don't become beguiled by what is an unrealistic virtual intarweb replacement for what is a very real world. And now, back to the books, and enjoy it! Honestly, these are the best days of your life, don't fuck them up by listening to me and Human rabbit on at each other. DogP 01:49, 31 March 2008 (EDT)

I'll (try to) take those words to heart. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 11:49, 31 March 2008 (EDT)
I should have known you were old.  : ) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 11:49, 31 March 2008 (EDT)
Did I hear my name? Hehe. Yeah, us old farts have given up and can waste what's left of our decrepitude hacking around in places like this. You should have more balance - not to say that playing here isn't a healthy hobby, it just shouldn't push real life activities like school and courtship rituals to the side ;) humanUser talk:Human 14:44, 31 March 2008 (EDT)
I am truly honored to be in the company of such experienced and varied people as you. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 15:03, 31 March 2008 (EDT)

Fixed Links?

Hey RA, hold up there with the fixed links - why are you doing that? All it does is freeze the refs in time. You may well have a reason, but what is it? DogP 16:13, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

It's standard practice to use static links. I know "standard format" won't satisfy you, so the "good" reason is that when someone reads the Wikipedia article, there is always a chance that they will find it at a moment when it's vandalized or when someone is in the middle of a rewrite, and it looks really ugly. Addtionally, there is always a possibility that the "intereresting" Wikipedia article will be butchered so it's not interesting anymore, or that the specific fact you're citing is removed. All these possibilities are par for the course on Wikipedia, hence the static links. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:18, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

GO AWAY

RA. As the nearest thing to a (grand)Mother Figure on here I'd be tempted to send you to your room block you for your own good but you'd only climb out of the window unblock yourself.

Ratwiki's ephemeral: Your studies are for life.
GO AND DO SOME WORK! SusanG 16:36, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
Alright, alright! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:40, 1 April 2008 (EDT)
I must concur in the judgment. We need intelligent lib'ruls in high-ranking government/science/public positions. You're of more value to the cause highly educated. From a strictly utilitarian perspective, as much as we enjoy your charming company, go get eddicated!-αmεσ (ninja) 16:41, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

You can't leave until you usurp total control of this wiki. TmtamesP 16:57, 1 April 2008 (EDT)

Hey RA. Thought I'd stop by. ГдлессЛиберал 21:02, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Good evening, GodlessLiberal! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 23:27, 2 April 2008 (EDT)

Wiki-break

I thought you were supposed to be getting on with your studies? Please note the possibility of an Educational Block as suggested at RWW. ;) Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 02:16, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Tis eleven at night, and my homework is finally done! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:18, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

*Sigh* Yes, mom. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 02:22, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Redfs

What you mean MLA etc? - looks a mess. (and go to your ROOM!)SusanG 12:14, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

MLA (Modern Language Association) specifies the standard notation for references in articles and essays. At least, that's how I was taught in school. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 12:23, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

The missionary position

My entry was meant only partly in jest. Why do you think it is called "the missionary position"? Along with bans on singing and dancing, and almost anything else that was fun, missionaries insisted their heathen friends would go to hell if they didn't stick to the first page of the Kama Sutra (actually I think it's page 46, but you know what I mean). Much like the insistence by evanagelical missionaries (and the Bush administration) today that abstinence be used in place of condoms to prevent AIDS in Africa. Rational Edfaith 14:14, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

Alright I acquiesce to your sexpertise, Ed. But note that that is hardly the main thing they taught. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:21, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

That would actually appear to be doubtful: http://www.straightdope.com/columns/050617.html --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 14:26, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

I stand corrected (that's on page 52 of the KS, I think). Thanks for the link to Cecil. I seem to remember some pretty harsh criticism of missionary work in Somerset Maughaum's short stories, but I'll have to do more research if I want to bring this up again. Rational Edfaith 14:37, 3 April 2008 (EDT)

HOMEWORK

If you log off NOW & do your weekend's homework tonight, we might let you come & play with us, but not until then! SusanG 15:49, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

I hope RA is a strong and positive individual. If there is one thing that puts off studying, is when other people tell you to study. RA is clever (probably. Are you, RA?), so he knows that he must study. Dogged's persistence is deletery, unless RA is someone who must be kicked in the a. to get motivation. I was not. Tell me to study and I avoided it for a week just to show off. Editor at CPfor a change 15:54, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
RA claims to suffer from OCD - he should apply it to his schoolwork. Just concentrate on showing AS how much better public schools are than homskull. SusanG 16:04, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
Well, IN THAT CASE, RW should be banned. OCD and RW plus CP, that's a deadly combination! PalMD should publish an article on the dangers of RW+CP to people suffering from OCD. And then let it peer review by AS. Editor at CPfor a change 16:24, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

ssshhh - I think he's offline! SusanG 16:25, 4 April 2008 (EDT)

So when do we have our first edumacashional block?? Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 17:26, 4 April 2008 (EDT)
RA - you say you "must be so bored". How bored will you be when you're lying on the sidewalk, drinking Snakebite from a brown paper bag? I reckon we ned to block you now for your own good. DogP 15:14, 29 April 2008 (EDT)
Hey, I've dropped to less than a quarter of my old edit rate. Not too shabby an improvement, if I do say so myself. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 15:21, 29 April 2008 (EDT)

Urushnor

Yep, that is also me. Urushnor 15:14, 23 April 2008 (EDT)

Should know better

In a dispute with any other editor, you should explain your ideas about the changes on its talk page in flawless Korean instead of simply reverting. Even Wikipedia doesn't allow "reverting a reversion". But when a sysop, having higher editorial authority, reverts something - you ought to assume good faith in his part. He may know something you don't.

Remember, the idea is to create a lulzworthy encyclopedia, not to "have a discussion". You can always start a debate. Fox 13:49, 1 May 2008 (EDT)

Eh? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 13:50, 1 May 2008 (EDT)

that post on the essay was meant for your talk page, heathen Rubico 17:58, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

I figured. Ts'all right though—I still saw it. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 18:33, 2 May 2008 (EDT)

Your revert of my edit on Goatse

My edit was meant to be constructive ie. providing a relevant link. Is this link banned due to its content or did I put the link in the wrong place on the page?

Please will you provide a link to relevant pages eg. what's banned and the style guide.

Thanks. 193.112.136.12 09:29, 3 May 2008 (EDT)

Strangely we don't want links to obscenities. Call it censorship or whatever but ... there you go! SusanG  ContribsTalk 09:57, 3 May 2008 (EDT)
Can't we just add some huge sign saying 'do not click the link on the word 'Goatse on top of the page, and then include the link? -The Almighty Tuna 10:09, 3 May 2008 (EDT)
I'm thinkin' no. If someone really wants it, there's Google. --Kels 10:41, 3 May 2008 (EDT)
If someone really wants Goatse, they should be put away for their own protection. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 11:57, 3 May 2008 (EDT)
Eh, apologies for not being as prompt as I'd like to be with answering my messages. Regarding your edit, I didn't know it was intended to be constructive, so I assumed it was a prankster adding it for kicks. If it had been in an "External links" section, I might have left it, but in-text external links have been abused by some IP vandals around here, so I automatically removed it. As far as I can tell, RationalWiki and myself prefer to avoid tasteless links. (That includes Rick Roller. But I won't name names *cough* Interpreted! *cough*) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:43, 3 May 2008 (EDT)

You bastard

I'm not sure you grasped the enormity of what we were attempting there. For shame, Radioman, for shame.85.25.151.22 20:27, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

You're right, I don't. Perhaps if you explained...? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:36, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
If you don't instantly realise the sheer joy of filling an automated display with childish repetition, I'm not sure there's any point explaining it to you. And now I'm stuck between these two GIANT PICTURES.85.25.151.22 20:38, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
Well, that's your own damn fault. And while I do realize the joy of filling up Recent changes, I prefer to do it with productive, or at the very least unobjectionable, edits. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:42, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Oh, I wondered why you said "mother of equestrians". And now I know. And, to address your gracious question: I'm not sure.85.25.151.22 21:02, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
But I do. The answer is simple: you enjoy rolling the rake. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:07, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
Raising the snakes, are we? Well you can try rolling your own rake when your unbalanced rake is on the damn rake. Get the picture?85.25.151.22 21:09, 6 May 2008 (EDT)
You think I'll roll to your demands so heartlessly? Never! I call a duel—you, me, thereabouts the rake. And bring your unbalanced rake, coward. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:17, 6 May 2008 (EDT)

Red links rise in the east

RA, your obsessive phobia of redlinks makes me want to start creating them all over the place just to drive you crazy. Rational Edperception 14:08, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

Yeah, Redman. You do know that wasn't really a link to my real userpage, don't you? I want to look like an anonymous IP again! You're shattering my illusion!85.25.151.22 14:13, 7 May 2008 (EDT)

Jews

I noticed you are called, Radioactive afikomen, are you a Jew by chance and if so DO NOT TURN INTO A PIANO see uncyclopedia for more information --Bob32 19:20, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Yes (I take it you missed the userbox on my page that states I'm Jewish). And I glanced at Uncyc's main page and saw nothing of relevance. Perhaps you could share with me what I'm supposed to be looking for? Or was this a test of my gullibility? If that is the case, my congrats to you—it worked. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 19:28, 8 May 2008 (EDT)

Questions

I'd been quietly watching the "developments" but to be honest I assumed it was really just a lulzy thing, a "smoke and mirrors" exercise to generate paranoia over nothing. But now I don't know. And because of the amount of behind the scenes stuff and manipulation that goes on, I don't know whether Bob's expressed concerns or even yours are real, or just part of the show. In that respect, even if it is a psychological stunt, it has been 100% successful already. I know that if such a course of action as is being insinuated was to be put into practice, I wouldn't want any part of it. For me, it means I'm going to have to disassociate myself from the whole thing. Meh, there were too many TK socks here anyway :D Fox 04:04, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

I don't know whether you're still online RA, but I guess you can read this later if you've disappeared. In my opinion, it's pretty unlikely that the Ides group would plan anything semi-legal in the midst of RationalWiki, as it could easily go wrong. When has this kind of thing ever been planned in broad daylight before? It seems obvious to me that the purpose of this whole thing was to trick CP into thinking we might stage an attack. Even if it isn't, I'm confident that the explanation is something that doesn't involve Human and Trent ignoring the interests of the wiki at large.— Unsigned, by: 79.79.79.79 / talk / contribs 04:28, 12 May 2008 (EDT)

(ec)Maybe it's just a very effective mind fuck. I mean, I don't think the "Ides Folks" would do anything too drastic - they care as much about the future of RW as anyone (moreso, often). That said, this has all been very interesting to watch. It's a little ilovebees-ish, though I never really got anywhere with that. Of course, that was an alternate-reality game, and this is actual reality. I assure you that I know the difference --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 04:31, 12 May 2008 (EDT) Did I mention I'm still sick and perhaps incoherent?

Question

Would a raid coinciding with Ides be a good thing or a bad thing. UchihaKATON! 16:26, 15 May 2008 (EDT)

Since it's quite a way down in the history, I couldn't get rid of it without getting rid of quite a bit of other stuff. Is there an issue with that? --מְתֻרְגְּמָן שְׁלֹום

Nah, I only wanted an explanation for what struck me as a Conservapedia-esque action. Thanks for doing so. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 12:55, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Red links!

You should've moved it to my userspace. Shame on you. :(— Unsigned, by: 79.79.79.79 / talk / contribs 14:23, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Odd. Despite your mystical invocation of shame, I don't feel any. Could you try saying it louder? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:28, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
Sure. Shame on you, O mis-speller of "feel". Forsooth, art thou typing with your nose??— Unsigned, by: 79.79.79.79 / talk / contribs 14:30, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
I feel a sudden upwelling of shame within me. I think it's working. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:34, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
I'll type louder. Slightly more serious question: what's with those doublespaces??? — Unsigned, by: 79.79.79.79 / talk / contribs 14:37, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
That's what I was taught. It also makes it easier to discern sentences from each other when editing. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:40, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
People who learned to type using typewriters use two spaces after a period. Computers put those two spaces (or what is deemd to be the correct spacing) in automatically after a period when you're using a proportional font. Rational Edthink! 14:42, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
Is this an editing policy? I thought I had it all down!— Unsigned, by: 79.79.79.79 / talk / contribs 14:43, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
What's a "proportional font"? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 14:47, 13 May 2008 (EDT)

Have you ever noticed that if you try to line up a column of words in the middle of a page without using a tab that it is impossible to line them up? A proportional font adjusts the spacing differently between each character or punctuation mark to look "good". So a capital "G" is a lot wider than a capital "I". On the other hand, when you type using pure text (like in a text editor or non-html email), the letters each take up exactly the same amount of space and they will line up in a column in the middle of a page without a tab.

Oh. Thanks for 'splainin'! --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 15:08, 13 May 2008 (EDT)
