Just another a 50 something classical conservative trapped in the wrong century. His interests are eclectic and include politics (he is a monarchist with some libertarian sympathies), philosophy, theology (he’s an Orthodox Christian), economics, history (European & Byzantine), ships especially ocean liners and baseball (GO METS!). He enjoys reading on a wide range of topics and also enjoys the occasional historical fiction novel (Patrick O'Brian, Dewey Lambdin, Julian Stockwin).

Administrator Assisted Wikicide You have decided to leave, and you want someone to lock the door after you. Sorry, you will need to ask another admin. Yes, there are some admins who will block non-disruptive users on request as a form of RETIRED and I really mean it. I however, am not one of them. If your stress level has reached the point where you think it's time to go, then just post the retired template and move on. But if you really really want to be blocked you can post the request at WP:AN.
Range Blocks Maybe one day, but as of right now this is a WP:CIR issue. See also Filters below.
Filters My command of tech probably peaked with the advent of the electric typewriter (it was a wondrous thing). So if you see me playing with edit filters there are probably just two potential explanations; my account has been hacked or I've gone mad.

The Barnstar of Diplomacy
for your two proposals to settle the great "allision" controversy of 2014 I hereby award you your second Barnstar. Keep up the good work. Now you can't say you have just one anymore... Cheers! Cuprum17 (talk) 00:10, 13 November 2014 (UTC)

The Half Barnstar
Thank you for your many common sense edits to the USS PC-552 article, making the previous well-intentioned but malformed work more worthy of its subject. For improving the page, I award you with appropriate partial credit (shared with User:Dual Freq) and this very equally shared barnstar. BusterD (talk) 22:21, 31 May 2015 (UTC)
Thanks for helping me out with that rather unusual issue yesterday.
I actually find it really amusing that my home IP is blocked with good reason, hahaha. Seppi333 (Insert 2¢) 22:54, 26 February 2017 (UTC)
The Admin's Barnstar
Thank you for cutting a stubborn knot with a great edit. Well done. Please stick around over there. SW3 5DL (talk) 03:25, 3 April 2017 (UTC)
The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
Thank you for your tireless anti-vandalism work on Titanic II. There seems to be no end to those who maintain that this ship is going to be built despite all evidence to the contrary. BlueRiband► 04:58, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
