Ol' Andy Schlafly, proprietor of Conservapedia, never learnt him any books![edit source]

(Warning, trollish language ahead) Linky. Apparently, not only is he a blithering fuckwit who shouldn't have been let out of his basement some years ago, much less let loose on the internet, but apparently hasn't learned basic reading comprehension skills. Now, I don't expect much out of someone who is such an obstinate christfag, but I thought at least he could read!

You see, recently, some scientist concluded his test that he started some 20 years ago to observe the evolution of E. Coli bacteria; or rather, to force a certain colony on a certain evolutionary path (FEV only a few steps away, amirite?), more specifically, making them evolve to consume citrate as well as they could glucose. Anywho, it appears Mr. Schlafly didn't like what he read, or attempted to read until the ice cream truck inside his head came by (50 points if you catch the reference). Soooo, he e-mailed our scientist friend asking for evidence, and our homie Mr. Scienceman pointed him to his research paper, which detailed, METICULOUSLY, every step in their 20 some-odd years of painstaking research, and every mutation that occurred during that period. This isn't even the worst part! THE RESEARCH PAPER IS ON HIS SITE! You heard me right, the godamned paper is on his site, and all Dumbass had to do was read, which is apparently against his religion, or some shit.

Mr. Schlafly (hitherto referred to as "retard"), "skimmed" the paper, and replied to our biologist friend, once again, demanding data; and making a complete ass of himself in the process. This apparently got under the scientist's skin a bit, and he replied to him, basically telling him, point by point, what a douchebag he was being, and exactly what his research said. It seems Ol' Andy got stumped on that one (probably had a stroke because of all the words), and has yet to respond.

However, he didn't stop there! OH NOES! He went on to post this little debate on his shit site, and some of his followers told him he was being a dick (LOL B&), some said he had trouble reading (LOL B&), but most of his cronies flocked to him like a massive retard orgy and congratulated Andy on pwning the evolutionist freak (LOL WUT).

Personally, I think this little fuck is loooooooooooong overdue for a deep, hard ass-whooping by none other than our bestest Internet Hate Machine, Anonymous. Not just for this latest fuckwittery, but for the complete line of bullshit his site forces into it's readers heads.

Andrew Schlafly, if you're reading this, I hope Raptor Jesus rips your fucking eyes out with his fucking talons. RHSig.jpg talk 14:56, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

It's people like the ones at Conservapedia that make me believe the human race really is better off extinct. --Macros 16:32, 11 December 2008 (UTC)

Basically, its a place for people like Andy to sit around and nod their heads. Also, its excellent troll-bait. RHSig.jpg talk 21:58, 12 December 2008 (UTC)

Data[edit source]

Latin, it's datum, data. You can't get any more plural than that, and my dictionary backs me up in this. However, it is also a group noun, and when you use these to refer to the group as a whole, not its members, it is grammatically used in the singular. "The police have formed a line" (the men have) - "The police is your friend" (the group/insitution). I'm sure there are better examples. --◄mendel► 00:21, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

I know, I just grew up having everyone around me using it in plural in the form of a group noun. RHSig.jpg talk 01:14, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Personal Skin[edit source]

Most of all, you find yourself a good tutorial on CSS (or read the standard on w3.org). If you need any help, feel free to ask, or explain what exactly you want to achieve. Installing the DOM inspector and the Web Developer plugins for Firefox is also a good idea. --◄mendel► 17:33, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

I'll look into that, thanks Mendel. I'll also see if I can't peek into one of the preset skins for GWiki, I work better when I have an example. RHSig.jpg talk 20:31, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Give me an Idea[edit source]

Anyone got an idea for a project for me to take on using C#? I'm at an impasse, and would like some input. Nothing too big, though, I'm still into the early days of gaining a true hold of C#. RHSig.jpg talk 02:02, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

What if...[edit source]

<poll>Would you continue to play GW1 if ANet released public server tools for it? Yes, but I'd play the public servers more often. Yes, but I'd play the ANet servers more often. No, I'd convert over to the public servers fully. Neither, I'd play them all equally. </poll> Or more specifically, would you play them if the tools were released after GW2?

More People Should Listen To This Man...[edit source]


Don't you agree? RHSig.jpg talk 07:47, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

OK, I need some help, for I am again perplexed...[edit source]

Ooook, time for a little backstory! For some time now, I've been working on a program that will allow one to setup macros for the Thief Multiplayer Mod. You see, the mod has this nice little feature that allows one to call up what amounts to a console and, should a certain setting be enabled, do things like spawn zombies and health potions. I've got a basic idea of how this would work (I'm using VB6 for size and speed reasons), but I have yet to find anything that even leads me in the right direction. The user needs to be able to setup a macro in the program (after giving it a name, key sequence, and command), and execute it in Thief when the macro program (TMacro) isn't in focus. Anyone have something that could at least point me in the right direction? RHSig.jpg talk 07:47, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

GW:YAV is crap (from here)[edit source]

OK, so you guys all know about You Are Valuable. Basically, it says that everyone's opinion is valued the same despite their contributions, age, blah blah blah. I, personally, believe this is, to put it in as blunt terms as I can, a load of crap. Normal users are not as valued as admins; new contributors' contributions are, more times than not, more likely to be "discussed" and/or have action taken on them than those made by a regular contributor. Saying ageism and the like "don't occur here" is as much a myth as God. In the end, you are NOT valuable. Unless you end up being something really special (or doing some REAL special favors), you are at worst a piece of meat, and at best irrelevant and easily replaceable. Some admins may not feel or act this way, but, being something of a pessimist, I expect it of every one of them until proven otherwise. In short, you are not valuable. You are meat. You can, at the discretion of any admin, be replaced if you offend them in any way. They are the gods here, and if you don't do exactly as they say, they will remove you without so much as a second thought; even if you've been here for years, have made thousands of contributions, and may have even given some of your hard-earned money to keep this place going. RHSig.jpg talk 22:33, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

You forget the human aspect. YAV is much more a goal then a rule. Everyone cannot all the time treat everyone equally, or things like wiki drama would never happen. YAV is really trying to defeat the "I'm right, your not." clause that so many people like to default to when in an argument. Ageism and contributions are just reasons tacked on after the fact.--Łô√ë Roar.îğá†ħŕášħ 22:40, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
Read User_talk:Auron_of_Neon#GW:NPA and consider that the "second opinion" wasn't written by an admin, and consider who got blocked. "Even if you've been here for years, have made thousands of contributions, and may have even given some of your hard-earned money" admins will ban you if you screw up, and that is one aspect of GW:YAV, so your own argument shows it's not crap. New contributors' contributions are [...] more likely to be "discussed" because they are not as well adjusted to the community, and thus more in need of discussion; but that is not decided by their edit count, but by the nature of their posts.
If you feel an admin treats people unfairly, please report it to me, by email if you want this to remain confidential, on my talkpage, or on the Admin noticeboard; best would be to address the admin in question personally, though (and this, too, can be done off-wiki). If you have a problem with me, use one of the public methods or contact PanSola. See GW:AI for details. --◄mendel► 23:22, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

"Saying ageism and the like "don't occur here" is as much a myth as God." I wish that was the case. ;D Felix Omni Signature.png 00:41, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh no, I've not had any problems with any admins here, this is more a debate than me venting from some personal wronging. Trust me, if I felt I was the subject of some unfair judgment or ruling, I wouldn't hesitate to let my voice be heard by whatever means I deem necessary. I do respect YAV as a goal, but it is, from what I've witnessed personally and heard of (through sources I'd consider reliable), extremely difficult, if not impossible, to achieve. In the end, the netizen (as a creature in and of itself, not any one person in particular) is, many times, a person uninhibited by such concepts as kindness, consideration, empathy, or even rationality; and it seems that it's these people that are the ones that end up in places of power or importance. You need look no further than Rapture Ready for excellent examples of this unfortunate fact. To them, you aren't worth the bandwidth if you put even one toe out of line. You may look at this example and ask "Why am I making an example of bad forum admins when I'm posting about a wiki policy?" Because, in essence, the forum and the wiki are very closely related to eachother; the only real differences being in how one goes about posting an opinion and how they are organized. Here, we have talk pages w/ separate sections relating to differing topics; on forums, they have topics and threads. In fact, one could say that the wiki architecture came about as a result of someone realizing that a forum was rather inefficient in the storing of more encyclopedic knowledge. Also, many forums have policies much like YAV, which is why I drew this parallel. While this place seems to be an exception to that particular rule, there are so many other places that aren't, like Rapture Ready, like Conservapedia, and so many others. Places which are, for their most unfortunate users, run by people who don't respect their own policies and act according to the classic "'cause I said so" methodology. RHSig.jpg talk 00:49, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
"some personal wronging" — even if it is somebody else that is being wronged, don't be afraid to contact me, because I want to know.
"While this place seems to be an exception to that particular rule" — well, thank you for the compliment. I think this is really the best argument that YAV is not "crap", and that it's worth to strive for this ideal.
"Rapture Ready" is, ummm, interesting. Makes me want to post theology. :) --◄mendel► 10:34, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Banned! (Rehash)[edit source]

It seems ANet is really learning to not like me. I've been hit by the banhammer again, making this the 3rd time. Apparently, they disapprove of my expressing my opinion that Gaile is a retarded, horse-face bitch that needs to die in a fire while being violated by a furry. I'm not withdrawing my opinion, and ANet can suck my fucking dick on this issue. If Gaile is so sensitive that someone saying she should go die in a fire makes her butthurt, maybe she shouldn't have taken a job that involved the fucking internet. Methinks the dumb bitch needs to go BAWWWW somewhere else and leave the internet to someone who has skin thicker than a fucking piece of paper. Maybe we need a man... RHSig.jpg talk 21:25, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

They disapprove of the way you expressed it, and so would we, had you expressed it here. See GW:NPA. --◄mendel► 22:02, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
