Squirrels

Who knew he ran them over so often? Toddst1 (talk) 03:28, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

A lot of that depends on the squirrel. There are two species of squirrel, you know: (1) The Quick; and (2) The Dead. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 03:50, 10 June 2016 (UTC)

Profanity and Gangland Threats

Do you think that it is appropriate to use profanity and gangland threats on a newbie IP user's talk page? —Anomalocaris (talk) 23:48, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

You appear to lack a sense of humor. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 01:28, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Thank you for your reply. I suppose you are correct: with regard to profanity and threats, serious or jesting, I do lack a sense of humor. Cheers! —Anomalocaris (talk) 02:14, 17 June 2016 (UTC)
Try not to worry. With experience you'll better be able to tell big problems from little problems. And be aware for the long haul that BMK can be a good ally. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 02:36, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Re: ITN

"Oswald was not acting on anyone's behalf. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 03:39, 18 June 2016 (UTC)" That's just what they want you to believe. ;P --WaltCip (talk) 14:43, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

Oh, yeah, I forgot that the assassination was a joint project of the FBI, CIA, Mafia, Cuba, and some guy named Grassy Knoll. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 17:05, 18 June 2016 (UTC)

You so

As for Anders Breivik, it's most unfortunate that he doesn't yet have a burial place to visit. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 04:12, 22 July 2016 (UTC)

How hard is it...

...to get an Admin desysoped? I am slowly, and very reluctantly, coming to the conclusion that there might be one who is temperamentally unsuited to the position. -Ad Orientem (talk) 22:29, 27 July 2016 (UTC)

I don't recall having been in deep on a serious discussion about it. But it seems to require some sort of serious malfeasance, such as socking, outing, etc. Having a bad temperament is usually not enough. And the bottom will be, not whether he's an annoying editor, but whether he's abusing his admin power. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 23:39, 27 July 2016 (UTC)
Hmmm... -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:01, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
And keeping in mind my limited amount of observation of these things, I should say that the real bottom line is... it ain't easy. ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 00:29, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
From a quick looking about, I think you are right. It's probably not worth the trouble at this point. But he is one of the reasons I took a very long wiki-break and seriously considered leaving the project. And he remains the reason I rarely participate at ITNC anymore. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:34, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
I have about had it with that page too, and not just for that reason. Promoting a story about a fake "psychic" while suppressing a story about a real terrorist attack? What is wrong with people? ←Baseball Bugs What's up, Doc? carrots→ 00:40, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
Entirely agree. I could see the French priest story going either way given that we don't usually post low loss of life incidents. But putting a silly fraud in RD is clear evidence that there is a problem at ITNC. Standards have always been the weak point for Wikipedia. There is a horror among many editors of any actual standard that might accidentally exclude some good information, or a great article that cites not a single source, if we were to actually enforce some standards that are SOP at any real encyclopedia. Oh well. Enough with the venting. We must deal with the world (or project) as it is and not as we would wish it to be. -Ad Orientem (talk) 00:57, 28 July 2016 (UTC)
