Fresh Start

Hello, and welcome to Wikipedia!

I hope not to seem unfriendly or make you feel unwelcome, but I noticed your username, and I am concerned that it might not meet Wikipedia's username policy for the following reason: may be offensive because "BS" is short for "bullshit.". After you look over that policy, could we discuss that concern here?

I'd appreciate learning your own views, for instance your reasons for wanting this particular name, and what alternative username you might accept that avoids raising this concern.

You have several options freely available to you:

Hello. I apologize for the "no reason given", there was a change in the template that I was unaware of. I forgot to fill in a reason. However I have now, and one may not realize your name means (big squid). It could be very easily confused with bullshit. JetLover (talk) (Report a mistake) 04:15, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Yes I would rather hate that 'confusion' to take place.Anti-BS Squad (talk) 04:21, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

I'll start an ANI topic on your username, see if there are any opinions on this. Sorry about all this. JetLover (talk) (Report a mistake) 04:21, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

I think its only fair to let you know the name is a deliberate and unfunny double-entendre. I thought it would be fine to just admit my name stands for bullshit but I thought I would have my fun and think up something not particularly clever to substitute BS for.Anti-BS Squad (talk) 04:24, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Still.. its hardly that offensive, you can read the word on talk pages left right and centre, I dont see a reason to waste youre time or create a fuss, if you want me to change it sure thing, but I dont really see the reason.Anti-BS Squad (talk) 04:26, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not censored, but usernames can be. JetLover (talk) (Report a mistake) 04:27, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Okay Ill change, sorry for taking up your time and being a fool, do I have to get my whole name changed or can I just change my signature?Anti-BS Squad (talk) 04:30, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

Actually, your username is OK. Never mind. JetLover (talk) (Report a mistake) 04:37, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
I think this is an inflamatory aggressive username and this is not needed here. I agree that it should be changed. --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 04:39, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Changing your signature is ok but it doesnt change the big huge username on top of your userpage. I would advise you to change your username. Its pretty easy, please see: Wikipedia:Changing username as its inflammatory. No one is going to buy the "anti squid theory". An admin will take care of your username change. Please make sure its not inflammatory. --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 05:09, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Nothing wrong with this username - isn't it obvious, it's the Anti B ollockS Squad  :)

Username[edit]

Hi, sup? You mentioned you had an old username you forgot the password to. Do you mind if I ask what account that was? thanks, --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 04:30, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

You used "Rob,G,P,A" before? Could I know the exact username if possible? Also, could you give me links to a few IP edits on Israel that you say you've done? I'm just curious. thanks. --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 05:12, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Ok thanks, I look forward to know if possible, what other few edits you made using an IP or the other username. Also, use the preview function for posting. It helps. --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 05:16, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
Please change your username as I suggested about or I'll file another complaint an ANI. Its needlessly offensive. ALso, this guy looks interesting. Pretty amusing its his 2nd edit and he gives you a barnstar. --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 04:18, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
Matt57, Please assume good faith when dealing with other editors. See Wikipedia:Assume good faith for the guidelines on this. WHEN I WAS A YOUNG BOY (talk) 04:21, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
You're new here and this is your 4th edit, with your 2nd edit being a barnstar award to this user. What was your previous username? Was it Kirbytime as well? --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 04:25, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
I'm not so lame as to give myself a barnstar, I just kn0w quality when I see it. WHEN I WAS A YOUNG BOY (talk) 06:37, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Ill change my name... fine, however you going after me about this especially after I saw your reasonably (but not neccessarily whole-heartdly) bad faith edit, made me suspect that you might be forcing me to change my name to cause unessecary issues, because you seem not to like me that much (oh woe the damage to my ego...). Especially seeing as BS is on many userpages, possibly with the spelling of bullshit (remove if you are offended), and I somehow doubt you are hideously offensive by it, considering 2 other editors have given me the go ahead and no one else I have been editing with has complained. Im going to throw you a rope here: I could see the possible reason you were offended was not the BS reference, so much as that I could have been making a strawman? by saying all editors I oppose spout BS. I assure you this was not my intention, and I think you would have to read to much into it to see it like that, I was merely stating I am against things that are wrong. Im not sure you did see it that way however, and I think you may be doing this to get at me (biut perhaps IM being oversensitive/stupid), and see it as a waste of time to change my name when it is really not that offensivee (I think anyway). However one user is enough I suppose, so ill change, but its up to your conscience whether you are doing this for the right reasons or being difficult.R.G.P.A (talk) 22:32, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

Ah, thats not the case, R. I had my valid suspicions of a sock and I acted on it and filed a report. I've caught many socks of that guy. Looking back again, I'm more inclined to say you're not the sock, however, all my points were valid in the report so its strange. You come get a new account, some other guy gets another account and hands you a barnstar on his 2nd edit. And other stuff so it was very strange and I filed the report. Please dont take it personally. I've withdrawn the report until I see anything new from someone else. Anyway, regardless of this sock issue, its good that you changed your name. You can ask anyone on the street and tell them what your previous username meant and they would all say "anti bull shit squad". So its good that you changed it. So I'm ok now, I have taken back my report, so, is all well then with you then? --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 06:13, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

I wont deny its weird I got a barnstar on a new account from a guy I cant recall editing with ever, but its a nice gesture, although Im wondering if this user knows you in a past life more than he knows me.86.138.116.141 (talk) 14:12, 5 January 2008 (UTC)

Reply to 'Offended'[edit]

Hmmm... your message made me read over what I had said, many months ago and I thought carefully about what you have said. Consequently, I have changed my views so that my Muslim friends do not fall under the categor I criticize.

On the contrary, I am delighted someone has replied. I am more than willing to defend my points, and look forward to your counter-response. Here is my defense and my clearing up of a few personal points:

  • I think that the Sharia law has it wrong. Sharia law demands Christians and Jews to pay a tax to live under Islamic protection. This has been rejected in many Islamic countries, most of all my favorite Turkey. However, in Iraq, the native Christians, known as the Assyrians have been stupidly called Crusaders by some misled extremists, who have began ethnically cleansing the area. Assyrians are in some parts of northern Iraq being forced to leave their homes or convert. Some have the less choosing option of converting or dieing, as have some priests in their own churches. Some churches have been bombed too. See Assyrians for more info.
  • The above is why I had made the first statement regarding my view on the Middle East. The thing is, Iraq is chaotic, and no one cares about a native christian group, who number a mere 3% - they don't have a big say in Iraq and so won't be treated with too much respect. After all, Assyrians have been persecuted as Christians since the times of Timur - thats why the Assyrians mocked him the name "Tamerlane", from the Aramaic "Timur-i-linga", which means "Timur who limps" or "who is lame". But, in Egypt it happens as well. The Coptic Christians amount to 10-15% of the population. Yet you probably did not realize that it takes a long time to repair even a woman's toilet in a church in Egypt. Thats how restrictive they are. Churches take longer still to build and need permission. See Coptic#Human rights.

So you see... the thing is... Iraq and the Middle East had been the homeland and the birthland of Christianity. It is very disappointing to see my fellow Christians come under fire. I have had many Muslim friends. This is a delicate subject indeed. I am not saying that all Muslims are bad. You accussed me of labelling people under one category. You've assumed incorrectly. I apoligize for stating the silent genocide of Eastern Christendom - I know it might actually horrify people to know that Christianity is NOT a western colonial, crusader import but was once the Middle East's main religion.

Report[edit]

Please dont take the report personally. I have caught many sock puppets of Kirby in the past. Its possible the report will not result in a confirmation. Please keep on editing as you have been doing. The admins will take the decision whether to run the check user and what action to take. Needless to say, if you're not Kirbytime, you have nothing to worry about in any case. --Matt57 (talkcontribs) 22:15, 4 January 2008 (UTC)
