Nice work on the intro on the Stop Online Piracy Act page, it makes it much more accessible. Sloggerbum (talk) 21:08, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Choco chip cookie.png It's a bribe. No beverage until you work some of your magic on the Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement intro (w/refs preferably). ACTA is about to be getting a lot of traffic, save them all from nosebleeds? Sloggerbum (talk) 19:19, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Bento at Hanabishi, Koyasan.jpg Thanks for kickstarting the great intro cleanup at Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement! I think some yummy dead fish is very well deserved. Sloggerbum (talk) 01:08, 4 February 2012 (UTC)

Your post
I saw you said you don't have a cat, so at first I felt bad and thought I'd present you with one TPS cat
But then I realised that obviously the reason you didn't was because it was Eaten by a bear. Thanks and much appreciation for my laugh of the day : ) - jc37 13:38, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

A night sky of barnstars for that stellar apparatus, as I noted in this edit summary of a comment on a page where you can't even post. I hope there is a way for you to get unblocked and dance the 10 billion year messy and messier dance with the stars again. That barnstar is amazing. ---Sluzzelin talk 01:08, 26 June 2013 (UTC)

Hey, cheer up, you gave me this at my first spectacular RfA, but you should look at time backwards, forwards and all at once like I do. After a number of people suggested without prompting that I become an admin, an initial RfA in July 2012 was a sight to behold, both supporters and critics alike enjoyed this critique of the RfA commentators. Whilst the proposal was indeed genuine, too many people failed to understand it, and it was closed early as unsuccessful.


"If you bat your head against a glass windowpane in the effort to escape the house 10,000 times, you shouldn't give up, you've simply found 10,000 places on that windowpane through which escape is impossible" -Thomas Edison, Thief, Liar, '*Animal lover*, humanitarian, and Brilliant Capitalist, described by his teacher as "addled".

"Ever considered using the door ?" -Tesla, insane scientist.

"It is not a dream, it is a simple feat of scientific electrical engineering, only expensive — blind, faint-hearted, doubting world! [...] Humanity is not yet sufficiently advanced to be willingly led by the discoverer's keen searching sense. But who knows? Perhaps it is better in this present world of ours that a revolutionary idea or invention instead of being helped and patted, be hampered and ill-treated in its adolescence — by want of means, by selfish interest, pedantry, stupidity and ignorance; that it be attacked and stifled; that it pass through bitter trials and tribulations, through the strife of commercial existence. So do we get our light. So all that was great in the past was ridiculed, condemned, combatted, suppressed — only to emerge all the more powerfully, all the more triumphantly from the struggle." – Nikola Tesla, "The Transmission of Electrical Energy Without Wires as a Means for Furthering Peace," Electrical World and Engineer, January 7, 1905.


Although there is an enormous amount of work to be done maintaining and updating the ISS article on an ongoing basis, and indeed, across all of Wikipedia Spaceflight Project, I've had difficulties coping with the poor behavior of another person, who should be setting a good example within the Wikipedia community, but refuses to use the ISS:Talkpage in a constructive manner. Such demoralizing behavior and lack of co-operation makes my work on the ISS page difficult. So I've shifted some of my efforts to open projects outside the Wikipedia community.

In an application for arbitration which I initiated on June 10, the administrator Ckatz referred to the above statement on my userpage. I made a statement in the application on the Jun 11, that 'I can't see this matter reaching any conclusion that benefits Wikipedia.'

I don't expect to be motivated to continue working to make Wikipedia a better place with my former Zeal, whilst I still wish to help, I feel frustrated and unable to do so. I do hope everyone enjoys the new material I have added to this article and finds it useful and enjoyable. Penyulap talk 21:37, 10 June 2011 (UTC)


Wikipedia should stop serving alcohol. Not many people like to read books in a pub, the noise and ruckus makes it hard to study and do serious work, I'm leaving, this is no library ! Wikipedia is inevitably doomed because it would take a measure of resolve to sweep all the ruckus bickering and witch-burning out the door, or a measure of reason to persuade the revelers to take up a book and sit quietly, two measures well beyond the mettle of the structure of the 'pedia. Throw open the doors of your home, put a big flashy sign up saying party, then let the arriving strangers know they are in charge of everything. Doesn't work in real life, has never been a successful formula anywhere on the internet either, never will be, that's elemental anthropology.

Penyulap Apr 2012

Here is Penyulaps Rule of thumb for article quality: If a large number of editors are arriving and adding quality material to a page that's because it is not informative enough. If many editors argue and edit war, it's because the article is a crap article.

Jupiter is nice, but thanks to a long tradition of putting idiots in charge of everything, I can't live there.

I dreamed I was editing on wiki, because I remember seeing a new animal in my Zoo, and it's not there. There is a culture which believes all reality is a dream, and dreams are the only true reality. They are right. Penyulap talk 14:10, 24 August 2011 (UTC)

"Not every Author is married, with a wife hanging over their shoulder nagging and criticizing their every word, Wikipedia has a lot to offer these Authors" Penyulap talk 07:09, 21 December 2011 (UTC)

Committed identity ? what the hell for ?
No man, woman, boy, girl or dog could match me for creativity in a way that would convince anyone,
at all, ever.
If you can guess where they key is hidden then you can probably guess my password, and who cares ? It would take a good few of the people who know me working together to do a good parody of myself, and I'd sit back and enjoy it all immensely.
Still, although no man or woman could, I guess if you got canvas, paint and enough Zoo animals and put them in a sack together....
.... Naaaah.

A wise editor invoked the image of a "Camel" (df=a horse assembled via committee). I think what happens at Wikipedia is more like the way you can get two or three editors to discuss a question and finish with 17 (wrong) answers.--Djathinkimacowboy irrelevancies
