Suck my chump. Link to website removed as it probably violates WP:UP#GAMES or something. Actually, it's now a commercial site, so it violates WP:UP#PROMO, too.  — TORTOISEWRATH 02:39, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

My username[edit]

I have been using the name TortoiseWrath online since no later than 2011-05-15, the date on which my YouTube account by that name was registered, long before I founded a business of the same name on 2013-02-08. Though I registered this WP account 2012-08-29, before I had any intention of using the TortoiseWrath name commercially, I'll change it if it is decided that it violates WP:SPAM.  — TORTOISEWRATH 02:39, 5 March 2013 (UTC)

Things that annoy me[edit]

  • Pointless switching between Roman and Arabic numerals
    • ... Mac OS 8, OS 9, OS X

  • Apple and all of their products
  • Comma splices, split infinitives, and sentences ending with prepositions
  • People who retire from Wikipedia
  • Ugly userpages... oh, wait...
