cool editing

Warning: In my discussions, I constantly coin new words. You'll just have to follow along and make reasonble guesses.

My quick links[edit]

Some things about me (parody alert)[edit]

I reserve the right to parody any person I choose. If you think that I'm speaking of you, you probably are a bit too thin-skinned. I'm not talking about you.

  1. I know the true policies, if anyone has an interpretation of policy that contradicts mine, they are wrong and I am right.
  2. I am important because I have a stick. I have a stick because I am important. You had better watch yourself, or else I will use my stick.
  3. I get over a hundred thousand Googs (Google hits), I've been the subject of hundreds of independent comments by media, but I'm not notable. No not me, stop that! Don't make an article about me! I'm a private person! Just because I was kidnapped by aliens, ran the government of Argentina from my secret-bunker underground in Idaho, and once had twelve wives and fourteen sheep does not make me notable!
  4. Although I have acted in nine gay films (and one bisexual one, which proves I'm straight), and was a male prostitute for men until 2003 and ran a massage service catering to gay men until 2004, I'm not gay. Yes I'm not gay. I just happen to be that one man who can have sex with men and not be gay. It's true. What are you looking at?
  5. I am a tenured professor of religion at a private university with four Ph.D. degrees. My middle name is Rumpelstiltskin and I was the first white child born on the Moon.

More things about me (without any parody or trout)[edit]

  1. I try to be npov and shudder civil, sometimes I fail, and you can inform me when I do — children tattle — don't be a child. Here's a hint, tattlers run screaming to mommy every time someone pulls their hair. Responsible adults figure out other ways to deal with it. You're an adult. Act accordingly.
  2. Notability is not "I can find it in Google" nor is it "I can't". Historical figures of note are quite often not in Google because no one has yet taken the time to write something googleable. Google is highly skewed toward recent events, please note that. Wikipedia at one million articles can certainly handle one more on a person you personally have never heard of and can't google, and yet can be sourced. So take a pill.
  3. "Original research" is not the same thing as "research". If you can't comprehend that, you don't belong here.
  4. Quoting sources is a perfectly legitimate, biographical tool and does not constitute copyright infringement. Maybe you should go back to Copyright 101 and pay attention.
  5. I live in California — on the beach — because I found if I lived anywhere more tense I would probably end up in prison at some point.
  6. If your religion says your god-man did a miracle, that's what it says, it doesn't make it a fact. The proper way to express this npov would be "He is said to have done x" as opposed to "He did x". Class dismissed.
  7. I have started my first project Wikipedia:WikiProject_Wikipedians_for_local_history
  8. Something about WP:RS here
