Falcons-Saints juvenile vandal war[edit]

BR, some juvenile tit-for tat vandalism has been going on for several days on the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints articles. One user will revert the vandalism on one page, then go to the other page and make the same type of vandalism there! Could you look into semi-protecting these for a week or two? Thanks. - BilCat (talk) 00:28, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

And semi'd both for a week. - The Bushranger One ping only 00:48, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Thanks. Must be spring break. - BilCat (talk) 01:14, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

ANI hint[edit]

Opening threads is much different than responding to them. The standard wiki battle tactic is to ad hominem the original poster -- if successful the OP replies and the subject replies and the OP replies and the subject replies ... generating enough noise that reviewers eyes glaze over. In other words, responding to the counterattack just reduces the Signal-to-noise ratio, making it less likely the thread will be productive. Best just to WP:Other duck the "counterattack." An be patient -- sometimes an ANI thread is like a good cup of tea or beer -- you have to give it time to brew properly. NE Ent 11:31, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. I try my best to be the Other Duck as much as possible, perhaps I need to head in for a fresh feather-waxing! - The Bushranger One ping only 11:48, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Welcome to Spamalot?[edit]

Excuse my ignorance, but what does 'Welcome to Spamalot' mean? LordFixit (talk) 12:04, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

It was a block of a spam account, so referencing Monty Python's Spamalot seemed appropriate. - The Bushranger One ping only 12:21, 19 April 2014 (UTC)
Oh OK haha. Thanks for that. LordFixit (talk) 13:43, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Please tell me you are reading this...[edit]

It's more sad than anything else. - The Bushranger One ping only 04:16, 20 April 2014 (UTC)
