02:55 < IRWolfie-> if you spend some time at ANI you will see that admins aren't in some cabal
02:56 < TeeTylerToe> yes, some admins don't like other admins
02:56 < TeeTylerToe> like cliques at a high school cafeteria

02:59 < IRWolfie-> You appear to have engaged in some amount of edit warring TeeTylerToe
02:59 < TeeTylerToe> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Nick-D#User_talk:TeeTylerToe
03:00 < russavia> IRWolfie -- go read [[WP:EEML]] sometime and how easily admins are able to be manipulated
03:00 < TeeTylerToe> So have several admins.  I don't prejudge them though
03:00 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: who was that admin that you mention?
03:00 < TeeTylerToe> which admin?  The one that accused me of NPA?
03:01 < IRWolfie-> yes
03:01 < TeeTylerToe> Hi Nick - I would recommend having another look at your block here. The block is perhaps appropriate, but there are no "personal attacks" for which you blocked him indefinitely on that page. Mind reinstating his talkpage access?
03:01 < BlastHardcheese> wouldn't being accused of "no personal attacks" be a good thing :I
03:01 < TeeTylerToe> After reviewing an appeal by this user, it does appear that Guy Macon was involved in the dispute, as he reverted the article several times prior to closing the DRN discussion: [4] [5]. I do not believe that the DRN discussion would have ended any other way than it did, but Guy demonstrably was involved and therefore I think this justifies TTT's claim (TTT incorrectly used the term
03:01 < TeeTylerToe> "conflict of interest" here, but his basic argument appears to be true). It appears that this claim was viewed as a personal attack against Guy, and I'm not sure I agree with that assessment.
03:02 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: don't paste volumes of text
03:02 < TeeTylerToe> violating NPA
03:02 < IRWolfie-> I asked one question
03:02 < IRWolfie-> I can read your talkpage.
03:02 < TeeTylerToe> Those are from Nick-D's talk page that I linked
03:02 < TeeTylerToe> the admin who blocked me indefinitely, and then blocked my talk page access
03:04 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: you shot yourself in the food completely

03:05 < TeeTylerToe> He blocked my talk page access for quoting the procedings of the arbitration committee
03:06 < TeeTylerToe> I attacked a DRN volunteer who was edit warring
03:06 < TeeTylerToe> in a conflict of intrest
03:06 < IRWolfie-> and you got blocked for attacking DRN volunteers

03:07 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: no, it is self evident that you were edit warring since you were blocked for it
03:07 < TeeTylerToe> you can't have it both ways
03:08 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: both ways?
03:08 < TeeTylerToe> I had proof too
03:08 < TeeTylerToe> Guy Macon was edit warring in a dispute that he was party to on DRN
03:08 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: so?
03:08 < TeeTylerToe> I accused him of it just like you accuse me of edit warring
03:08 < TeeTylerToe> we committed the same "crime"
03:09 < IRWolfie-> Guy made about 2 reverts from what I can see
03:09 < IRWolfie-> you made about 6
03:09 < TeeTylerToe> I discussed my reverts with the person reverting them
03:09 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: you do not re-insert additions without consensus
03:09 < russavia> irwolfie based on that
03:09 < russavia> shouldn't youreallycan be booted as well?
03:09 < TeeTylerToe> the other person stopped raising the dispute so I reverted it
03:10 < TeeTylerToe> then Guy Macon edit warred without discussion
03:10 < TeeTylerToe> it fits the definition of edit warring
03:10 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: sure, but your disruption was worse
03:10 < IRWolfie-> hence you got blocked
03:10 < TeeTylerToe> because I discussed it?
03:10 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: no because you persisted in edit warring
03:10 < TeeTylerToe> and I was blocked indefinitely for making a factual argument
03:11 < TeeTylerToe> No, I discussed my edits with the people that reverted my edits on the DRN
03:11 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: that you are unable to recoqnise the errors with your editing will result in the indefinite block being maintained
03:11 < TeeTylerToe> they dropped their complaints
03:11 < TeeTylerToe> the indefinite block had nothing to do with edit warring
03:11 < TeeTylerToe> the indefinite block was on NPA grounds
03:12 < TeeTylerToe> And my talk page access block was because I quoted the proceedings of arbitration committee
03:13 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: your judgement is clouded because you are personally involved in the dispute
03:13 < TeeTylerToe> You claim that the indefinite lock was on the grounds of edit warring
03:13 < TeeTylerToe> I couldn't even edit articles at that point
03:13 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: no I did not
03:14 < IRWolfie-> where did I make such a claim
03:14 < TeeTylerToe> <IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: that you are unable to recoqnise the errors with your editing will result in the indefinite block being maintained
03:14 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: that has nothing to do with the edit warring
03:14 < IRWolfie-> you have inferred that
03:14 < TeeTylerToe> <IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: you weren't blocked for personal attacks
03:15 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: yes, you were blocked for incivility
03:15 < IRWolfie-> or it was extended to indefinite for that reason: (Edit warring continuing to abuse other editors while blocked
03:15 < TeeTylerToe> "I've just extended the duration of your block to indefinite for continuing to make serious personal attacks."
03:15 < IRWolfie-> you were abusing other editors, it got extended
03:15 < TeeTylerToe> Those are the words of the blocking admin.
03:16 < IRWolfie-> so?
03:16 < IRWolfie-> you were focusing your comments on other editors
03:16 < TeeTylerToe> <TeeTylerToe> <IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: you weren't blocked for personal attacks
03:16 < TeeTylerToe> [06:15] <IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: yes, you were blocked for incivility
03:16 < IRWolfie-> while blocked
03:16 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: I can be wrong
03:16 < TeeTylerToe> I was blocked for personal attacks that were grounded in fact.
03:16 < IRWolfie-> there are numerous diffs showing personal attacks against guy
03:16 < TeeTylerToe> Not an NPA violation
03:17 < TeeTylerToe> Like what?
03:17 < IRWolfie-> https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:TeeTylerToe&diff=prev&oldid=504560987
03:17 < TeeTylerToe> He edit warred
03:17 < IRWolfie-> no, you are making accusations
03:17 < TeeTylerToe> He threatened to have me blocked several times
03:17 < IRWolfie-> you accused him of gaming the system, 10 times.
03:17 < TeeTylerToe> he did
03:18 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: he was warning you about possible sanctions
03:18 < IRWolfie-> he's not an admin.
03:18 < IRWolfie-> your whole basis for this discussion was about admins making accusations
03:18 < TeeTylerToe> "For the purposes of dispute resolution, the Arbitration Committee issued a decision in 2005 stating "whether a party is one user with sockpuppets or several users with similar editing habits they may be treated as one user with sockpuppets."[4]"
03:18 < IRWolfie-> and?
03:19 < TeeTylerToe> he gamed the system and threatened to have me blocked
03:19 < IRWolfie-> I don't know why you are linking this
03:19 < TeeTylerToe> liking to proceedings of the arbitration committee?
03:19 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: there is no evidence that he gamed the system. He did not threaten to have you blocked
03:20 < IRWolfie-> then you accused them of meatpuppetry, wow
03:20 < TeeTylerToe> the first one on my talk page "If you continue to vandalize Wikipedia, as you did at Wikipedia:Dispute resolution noticeboard, you may be blocked from editing"
03:21 < TeeTylerToe> they are guilty of meatpuppetry
03:21 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: Evidence
03:21 < IRWolfie-> first of all, define meat puppetry.
03:21 < TeeTylerToe> You're accusing me of accusing them of something you can't even define?
03:22 < TeeTylerToe> "For the purposes of dispute resolution, the Arbitration Committee issued a decision in 2005 stating "whether a party is one user with sockpuppets or several users with similar editing habits they may be treated as one user with sockpuppets."[4]"
03:22 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: I can define it, I want to hear your definition.
03:22 < TeeTylerToe> several users with similar editing habits participating in an edit war
03:22 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: they do not have similar editing patterns
03:22 -!- Sp33dyphil [cb2d98fb@wikipedia/Sp33dyphil] has joined #wikipedia-en
03:22 < TeeTylerToe> They do
03:22 < IRWolfie-> they all disagreed with you; doesn't make them meat puppets
03:22 < TeeTylerToe> They all participated in edit warring
03:23 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: meat puppetry is attracting new, like minded editors into the dispute
03:23 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: don't be an idiot
03:23 < TeeTylerToe> Not according to the Arbitration committee
03:23 < TeeTylerToe> so what if I had gotten some friends
03:23 < TeeTylerToe> not new editors
03:23 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: you are wikilawyering
03:24 < IRWolfie-> you are quoting pieces out of context to advance your own point
03:24 < TeeTylerToe> like you using your own definition of meat puppetry saying that it must be new editors?
03:24 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: I'm quoting [[WP:MEAT]]
03:24 < IRWolfie-> "High-profile disputes on Wikipedia often bring new editors to the site. Some individuals may promote their causes by bringing like-minded editors into the dispute. These editors are sometimes referred to as meatpuppets, following a common Internet usage. While Wikipedia assumes good faith, especially for new users, recruiting new editors to influence decisions on Wikipedia is prohibited."
03:25 < TeeTylerToe> so am I
03:25 < TeeTylerToe> For the purposes of dispute resolution, the Arbitration Committee issued a decision in 2005 stating "whether a party is one user with sockpuppets or several users with similar editing habits they may be treated as one user with sockpuppets."[4]
03:25 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: no you are quoting something irrelevant out of context
03:25 < TeeTylerToe> it's right there in WP:MEAT
03:25 < IRWolfie-> it's for an influx of SPA editors, it says above.
03:25 < TeeTylerToe> do you think I went back through arbcom proceedings from '12 to '05?
03:25 < TeeTylerToe> You're wikilawyering
03:25 < IRWolfie-> "Wikipedia has processes in place to mitigate the disruption caused by an influx of single-purpose editors:"
03:26 < IRWolfie-> These aren't single purpose editors. You are wikilawyering by quoting it out of context
03:26 < TeeTylerToe> So what if I brought friends of mine, not new single purpose editors?
03:26 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: you have no evidence that that occured
03:26 < IRWolfie-> you just accused them of it
03:26 < TeeTylerToe> and the edit history shows that they edit warred as a group
03:27 < IRWolfie-> ...
03:27 < TeeTylerToe> what if I had brought friends of equal number, not new single purpose editors?
03:27 < TAP> ...
03:27 < TeeTylerToe> it's a way of gaming 3rr
03:27 < IRWolfie-> This is pointless. I can see that the indefinite block was fully justified. I am stopping now.
03:28 < TeeTylerToe> the indefinite block wasn't based on edit warring
03:28 < TAP> But the initial block was.

03:28 < TAP> That's the purpose of a block..
03:29 < TeeTylerToe> So how did I get blocked indefinitely?
03:29 < TeeTylerToe> I couldn't have engaged in more edit warring
03:29 < TeeTylerToe> and no, blocks are also used by bullies
03:30 < TAP> "continuing to abuse other editors while blocked" is the reason.
03:30 < IRWolfie-> Baseless accusations of meat puppetry and other similar abuse of editors
03:31 < TeeTylerToe> Guy Macon's actions alone constitute edit warring in both the S-76 page and the DRN page where he abused his volunteer status and edit warred. He repeatedly reverted other editors edits, he didn't participate in the discussion on the DRN talk page, and his edit summaries were hostile, accusing me of "vandalism". Wikipedia has clear and strong policies on accusing other editors of vandalism.
03:31 < TeeTylerToe> And the group actions of the people with similar editing habits including the various editors collectively edit warring on the S-76 page are guilty of edit warring as per wikipedia policy.
03:31 < TeeTylerToe> that is the statement that got my talk page access banned
03:31 < TeeTylerToe> it is true
03:32 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: I'm not going to re-argue the points again, because you are wrong and can't see it.

03:34 -!- basile is now known as guillom
03:35 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: the admins asked questions, then they accepted Nick's answers

03:35 < IRWolfie-> they inquired
03:36 -!- Bejinhan [6e9f080b@wikipedia/Bejinhan] has joined #wikipedia-en
03:36 < TeeTylerToe> No, in both cases he said "the UTRS system will handle it"
03:36 < TeeTylerToe> which is what the admins accepted
03:37 < TAP> All of your unblock requests were declined.. I don't see any light at the end of the tunnel.
03:37 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: that isn't a quote
03:37 < TeeTylerToe> if he or she wants to be unblocked, this would be better handled through the ticket system to reduce the aggravation all round.
03:38 < TeeTylerToe> Given that the block is for an indefinite duration, the only thing he can realistically do with his user space is to ask to be unblocked. As this can be done through other means (which would also probably involve a lot less drama), I don't think it's appropriate to re enable talk page access at the moment
03:38 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: He is outlining how you can make further unblock requests
03:38 < IRWolfie-> even though talkpage access was revoked
03:38 < IRWolfie-> he is explaining why he revoked it
03:38 < TeeTylerToe> The UTRS appeal has been in the works since the 31st
03:38 < TeeTylerToe> he's saying it will be handled through UTRS
03:39 < IRWolfie-> That is what I said.
03:39 < IRWolfie-> He is outlining why he revoked talkpage access: you don't need it to request further unblocks
03:39 < TeeTylerToe> one of the unblock rejections was "Entire request reason ignored"
03:39 < TeeTylerToe> one was "Upon reviewing the history of the article in question, I don't see any signs of Guy Macon edit-warring against you. " which is demonstrably false
03:40 < TeeTylerToe> "NOTTHEM. "
03:40 < IRWolfie-> I'm not getting back into a discussion about the ban
03:40 < IRWolfie-> s/ban/block/
03:40 < TeeTylerToe> and the last one was ignored completely because of the indefinite block
03:41 < IRWolfie-> you are ignored because your reasons are self-evidently false but you ignore any advice
03:41 < TeeTylerToe> "This block has been superceded by the personal attacks indef block."
03:41 < TeeTylerToe> yes, except they aren't as evidenced by the two admins saying they aren't
03:42 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: I think this really sums it up. There are no two admins that agree with you. You have invented it all to suit your purposes

04:25 < russavia> register a new account.....go edit other articles, saying on the mating habits of the common housefly, for a month or so...then gradually move back to the articles that you want to "fix".....do what you gotta do
04:25 < russavia> and within 18 months you could even become an admin
04:26 < russavia> then go block all the twits who got you blocked

04:37 < IRWolfie-> it seems Guy Macon had a name transplant
04:38 < TeeTylerToe> name transplant?

04:42 < IRWolfie-> what were you doing
04:42 < TeeTylerToe> Guy Macon was edit warring on the S-76 page.  To resolve that dispute it was brought to DRN.  Guy Macon unilaterally closed the DRN dispute then edit warred to delete the discussion from the page
04:43 < IRWolfie-> You were re-inserting a closed dispute that Steven_Zhang had closed
04:43 < TeeTylerToe> I discussed it with Steven Zhang, he dropped his objection
04:43 < TeeTylerToe> the way civilized editors do
04:44 < TeeTylerToe> I pointed out to him that Guy Macon was involved in the dispute, and not acting asa DRN volunteer
04:44 < IRWolfie-> diff
04:45 < TeeTylerToe> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Steven_Zhang#dispute_resolution_noticeboard_sikorsky_discussion
04:45 < IRWolfie-> because this says otherwise: http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User_talk:Steven_Zhang&oldid=504570371#dispute_resolution_noticeboard_sikorsky_discussion
04:45 < IRWolfie-> Now where does he remove his objection
04:45 < IRWolfie-> please quote the exact sentence
04:45 < TeeTylerToe> He stoped making it and stopped discussing it
04:45 < TeeTylerToe> stopped
04:45 < IRWolfie-> No, quote the exact sentence.
04:46 < TeeTylerToe> he closed the discussion without renewing the objection
04:46 < IRWolfie-> You were blocked for a week, what could he object to?
04:46 < IRWolfie-> He didn't remove his objection, i.e that is an invention on your part
04:46 -!- Spacewalker [~Spacewalk@firefox/community/Spacewalker] has joined #wikipedia-en
04:47 < IRWolfie-> you are inferring that when there are no grounds to
04:47 < TeeTylerToe> that was three and a quarter hours later
04:47 < TeeTylerToe> after he closed the discussion
04:47 < IRWolfie-> he is being polite, but in no-circumstances does he say; it's ok to restore that DRN that you keep edit warring to put back
04:47 < TeeTylerToe> He no longer objected
04:47 < IRWolfie-> You can ask him yourself when he comes here.
04:47 < TeeTylerToe> he basically said the DRN isn't for resolving disputes
04:48 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: there you go again, you are putting words in peoples mouths
04:48 < TeeTylerToe> If he continued his objection I would have continued the discussion
04:48 < TeeTylerToe> I'd suggest you consider an RFC if you would like this issue to be more extensively discussed, as DRN cannot help if the other editors are not participating in the discussion.
04:48 < IRWolfie-> Right, I have to get back to work
04:49 < IRWolfie-> TeeTylerToe: that means the opposite of what you stated: RFCs are done on the talk page
04:49 < TeeTylerToe> I didn't say it wouldn't be done on the talk page

07:50 < ToAruShiroiNeko> no, thats not the point
07:50 < Soapy> i think a lot of muslim leaders arent as anti-Semitic as they make it seem
07:50 < ToAruShiroiNeko> the point is para droping in monarchs
07:50 < mareklug> i always wanted to know how Ahmadinejad felt about Israeli Arabs, of whom there is only an increasing population.  I mean, they are Israelis.
07:50 < Soapy> they just do it to get the support of the people, who really are crazy anti-Semitic

09:09 < Emil> I have a question about dates in Wikipedia that are before the Gregorian calendar system was implemented. If I read about e.g. Martin Luther and I find that he was born on 10 November 1483 -- is this date in the Julian system or has it been converted?
09:09 < Emil> What is Wikipedia's policy on this?
09:09 < Pharos> i if in doubt, use both
09:09 < Pharos> "Old Stlye" and "New Style"
09:10 < wctaiwan> ha. Now in addition to being read by newscasters all over the world, Pussy Riot is on the front page of Wikipedia.
09:10 < wctaiwan> Lovely.
09:10 < Pharos> as they shopuld be
09:10 < Pharos> they're goddamned heroes

09:11 < foks|mobil> Hi!
09:11 < Qcoder02> As I said, would the Sex Pistols singing 'God Save The Queen' in Westminster Abbey get as much attention?
09:12 < Emil> but then the date is absolutely useless :/
09:12 < mareklug> they wouldn't get 2 years of forced labor in Wales, or whatever goes for Siberia in the UK

09:16 < mareklug> full of flies in the summer.  surely not Scotland
09:16 < Pharos> there are colder places than scotland, though
09:16 < wctaiwan> foks|mobil: what's the best They Might Be Giants song?
09:16 < foks|mobil> Yeah, plenty flies in our summers.
09:16 < Pharos> i think a very large % of the US is colder
09:17 < foks|mobil> wctaiwan: I have never in my life heard anything by that band.
09:17 < Soapy> Particle Man
09:17 < foks|mobil> Pharos: Maybe.
09:17 < Pharos> I bet your winters aren't any worse than NY
09:17 < foks|mobil> Meh.
09:17 < Soapy> i dont like TMBG anymore. But they do have a few good songs I still like
09:17 < wctaiwan> foks|mobil: duly noted.
09:17 < mareklug> imo Birdhouse
09:17 < wctaiwan> thanks for the rec Soapy.
09:18 < wctaiwan> and mareklug
09:18  * wctaiwan is pinging everyone >.>
09:18 < foks|mobil> wctaiwan: Sorry.
09:18 < Soapy> I dont like 'em because they're so aggressive at keeping their stuff off of Youtube etc
09:18 < Pharos> can we make Pussy Riot honary chairs of Wikimedia Russia?
09:18 < Frood> TMBG?
09:18 < wctaiwan> okay, def. not my style >.>
09:18 < Emil> Pharos: does Wikipedia have a policy on this (date thing)? Or do you know where I could find out if it does?
09:18 < Pharos> yes it does
09:18 < Soapy> even though I legitimately bought their albums in the 90s, all the CDs went bad and I can't listen to the songs anymore, aside from the few that I copied to my computer back then
09:19 < Pharos> use both if there's confusion
09:19 < Pharos> see the Isaac Newton article
09:19 < mareklug> wctaiwan:  http://vimeo.com/7598098
09:19 < foks|mobil> Soapy: Hmm, what genre are they?
09:19 < Emil> Pharos: yes, but what am I to do when I read an article where it is not mentioned?
09:19 < Soapy> I dont know if they fit into a genre
09:19 < Soapy> I guess mostly soft-rock music
09:19 < mareklug> indie rock with a bit of nasal cabaret
09:20 < Pharos> Emil: look it up in a reliable source, of course! then fix the article ;)
09:20 < foks|mobil> So like Death Cab.
09:20 < Soapy> most TMBG songs seem to be under 3 minutes
09:20 < Emil> oh right :)
09:20 < foks|mobil> That's good.
09:20 < mareklug> um, better than Deathcab imo
09:20 < foks|mobil> Short and sweet.
09:20 < wctaiwan> mareklug: better than Particle Man but meh.
09:20 < foks|mobil> Death Cab are awful, so that doesn't take much.

13:36 < Tony_Sidaway> greenrosetta: oh, marketing.
13:37 < greenrosetta> no, there is a product called American cheese
13:37 < mareklug> geniice:  you obviously have no clue what cheese is made in the US by small makers
13:37 < greenrosetta> its like Velveeta
13:37 < Tony_Sidaway> I'm not French, actually, but I'll fight to the death anybody who assaults French cheese. This is a nation of great cheese.
13:37 < geniice> mareklug are they clinically insane about cheese

13:38 < greenrosetta> Now beer, I'll challenge any beer in the world with a Fat Tire
13:38 < Biberkopf> thank you, markelug!
13:38 < geniice> incidentally who else is having fun watching the Muslims lie about moon sightings?
13:39 < greenrosetta> huh?
13:39 < greenrosetta> why would they lie about it?
13:39 < Biberkopf> Cheese isn't that great, anyways
13:40 < geniice> greenrosetta you can't end Ramadan before someone has seen it but it is impossible to see it in most of the islamic world
13:40 < greenrosetta> oh
13:40 < Biberkopf> ohhh
13:40 < mareklug> Biberkopf:  aged cheese can be awesome
13:40 < greenrosetta> hehehehe
13:40 < Biberkopf> that's interesting
13:40 < geniice> upshot is that someone in saudi arabia will probably lie and claim they saw it
13:40 < Tony_Sidaway> It okay saying "hey this microbrewery in Buttfuck, Oklahoma makes 16 gallons a month of the best beer ever made." But English beer is rather difficult to beat.
13:40 < greenrosetta> I hope its cloudy there :D
13:40 < Biberkopf> mareklug: I agree... I'm just being argumentative
13:41 < geniice> greenrosetta for example this is impossible http://www.thenews.com.pk/article-63811-Shawwal-moon-sighted-in-NWA:-reports
13:41 < Biberkopf> Tony_Sidaway: what type of beer are you talking about when you say English beer?
13:41 < geniice> Doom bar
13:42 < mareklug> Tony_Sidaway:   personally I am a customer of Czech and Canadian brews, but then I am not a fanatic
13:42 < Tony_Sidaway> I've tasted some lovely American beer in the beer festivals held nationally in the UK. And in 2010 the Vuvuzela beer brewed by a South African to celebrate the Football World Cup was stunningly good.
13:42 < geniice> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doom_Bar#Doom_Bar_bitter
13:42 < greenrosetta> Sam Adams produces 2,500,000 barrels a year Tony_Sidaway

13:43 < Biberkopf> what's the spiel on live beers?
13:43 < greenrosetta> i thought bitter was pale ale
13:44 < mareklug> Tony_Sidaway:  you should be able to find this one in London http://www.worldbeerawards.com/beer/samuel_adams_double_bock-4781.html
13:44 < greenrosetta> sam adams is just as good as most european beers
13:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> mareklug so you like brews that originate from a country thatr starts with a C?
13:44 < Tony_Sidaway> greenrosetta: not arguing with you on that.
13:44 < ToAruShiroiNeko> why not try China?
13:45 < ToAruShiroiNeko> new brand is lead flavoured :)

13:45 < greenrosetta> used to love that shit
13:45 < Tony_Sidaway> As I remarked earlier, American and SOuth African beers are among my favourite recent tastings.

14:51 < BarkingFish> Possibly contact urticaria, Qcoder02
14:52 < Qcoder02> Hmm which is odd as I've never had that problem before
14:52 < BarkingFish> sometimes an allergic reaction doesn't occur unless the skin under the site is irritated - and cleaning your arms with a nailbrush is likely to do just that kind of irritation
14:52 < BarkingFish> you've applied an irritant, which hasn't affected you until you've triggered a histamine reaction under the skin.
14:53 < Tony_Sidaway> Nail brushes can be kinda extreme for skin, depending how hard you brush.
14:53 < Qcoder02> The reason I was cleaning it with the nailbrush was because it was a bit blotchy beforehand, and assuming this was just dirt, I thought it would clean off
14:53 < Qcoder02> Tony_Sidaway: "And knowing is half the battle.." XD
14:53 < Tony_Sidaway> Qcoder02: ah so these could have been early symptoms of the later irritation.

15:12 < Tony_Sidaway> Boggling is the effect of broxing on a rat'
15:13 < Tony_Sidaway> s eyes. The head is small so the eyes are pushed outwards a little when it broxes, making a "boggling" effect like in a cartoon.

15:42 < suicidalzerg> I was asking if Rabbits could
15:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Yes, then it went on to humans.
15:42 < BarkingFish> And we wind up talking about gay curry clubs and whether a guy would get a sore dick if he fucked someone who'd had a hot curry...
15:42 < Tony_Sidaway> That was definitely me.

16:32 < Qcoder02> I assume Palestine doesn't have it's own gnerating capacity
16:32 < mareklug> interestingly Hamas/gaza paid up
16:32 < mareklug> Qcoder02:  that's the laughing crux of the matter.  they have nothing
16:33 < mareklug> nothing that a state does/provide for its citizens
16:33 < Qcoder02> mareklug: Hamas knows is Israel cuts off the West Bank it would hurt the PA
16:33 < Qcoder02> *if
16:33 < Qcoder02> That is only good for Hamas
16:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Qcoder02 palestine is under an embargo
16:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> they cannot produce shit
16:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> well
16:33 < SigmaWP> lol
16:33 < ToAruShiroiNeko> they can only produce shit probably
16:33 < Qcoder02> However Hamas would not hwoever wish to alienate an area where it enjoys support
16:34 < Qcoder02> hence why it paid up in respect of Gaza
16:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Hamas needs a u
16:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> and become Humus
16:34 < Qcoder02> That said , if Israel cut the power, would it kill people?
16:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> yes
16:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> those in hospitals
16:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> wikipedians
16:34 < ToAruShiroiNeko> and of course twitter junkies
16:35 < Qcoder02> Don't hospitals have generators?
16:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> for temporary power
16:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> very expensive
16:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> only powers part of the devices
16:35 < ToAruShiroiNeko> assuming they have generators
16:35 < Qcoder02> So the IEC is basicly using a civil debt as a WMD?
16:35 < BarkingFish> Not everywhere, Qcoder02 - and in the west bank, that would be nigh on impossible, the israelis try to embargo fuel from getting in
16:36 < ToAruShiroiNeko> BarkingFish they'd embargo air from getting in if they could
16:36 < mareklug> i'm surprised the UN pays for other utilities for camps but not power.  they should pick that tab also
16:36 < Qcoder02> And the reason the PA can't pay up is?
16:36 < ToAruShiroiNeko> mareklug UN is too busy not getting bombed
16:37 < Tony_Sidaway> I hate the whole Israel thing. It's like the US and Europe are just playing silly buggers, without realising that their interference is severely distorting local politics in the Middle East.
16:37 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Qcoder02 they dont have GDP that can support themselves because they are under the heaviest of sancitons
16:37 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Tony_Sidaway does a silly burger taste good?
16:38 < Tony_Sidaway> Eventually there will be a single state, approximating to Palestine. But meanwhile you have this ridiculous nonsense going on.
16:38 < Qcoder02> Tony_Sidaway:  Before or after there is a bloody genocide?
16:38 < ToAruShiroiNeko> eventually is when people dont use oil
16:38 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Qcoder02 genocides are typically bloody

16:41 < Qcoder02> The Genocide will be the Palestinains against Israel
16:41 < ToAruShiroiNeko> Qcoder02 bah
16:42 < ToAruShiroiNeko> that would be "Holocaust"
16:42 < mareklug> um, the expelled (from Israel) Palestinians were never allowed to go back.  this issue is know as the right to return, Tony_Sidaway
16:42 < Tony_Sidaway> Just because you acted unjustly towards a group of people, does not justify your suggestion that they will react by committing genocide against you.

16:48 < Tony_Sidaway> Oh fuckity fuck.
16:48 < geniice> but most of them live in transjordan
16:48 < Tony_Sidaway> geniice: could you get to the point?
16:48 < mareklug> Tony_Sidaway:  fyi http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestinian_right_of_return
16:49 < Tony_Sidaway> mareklug: I read it.
16:49 < Tony_Sidaway> "Londoners' right to return" would be very similar.
16:49 < mareklug> then I'm rather surprised at your claim, "that they have returned"
16:49 < geniice> at the present time attempts to facilitate a large scale movement of palistians into isreal carries an unacceptable risk of another nuclear equiped islamic state
16:50 < geniice> one is quite enough
16:50 < Tony_Sidaway> You can't chase people out of their homes and then treat them like shit without being recognised as rather shitty yourself.
16:50 < geniice> yes you can

16:55 < Tony_Sidaway> And it's extraordinary, and seems to be based on some millennialist nonsense.

18:54 < Tony_Sidaway> Ohio and Pennsylvania too.
18:54 < mattbuck> there was expanded early voting in republican counties but reduced in democrat ones

18:55 < Tony_Sidaway> Fucking wankers.
18:55 < mattbuck> I blame the perpetual campaign
18:55 < mattbuck> there's a lot to be said for the old British system where there are limits on a parliamentary session, but an election can be called at any time
18:55 < Tony_Sidaway> BlastHardcheese: as opposed to Britain where, as I remarked, non-partisan people have to go around and make sure everybody gets to vote.
18:55 < mattbuck> namely the election process is about a month long rather than 2 years
18:56 < mattbuck> I mean, I enjoy american politics, but ffs this election has been going on for over a year and it's still almost 90 days until voting starts

19:02 < Tony_Sidaway> wctaiwan: well the people at the polling stations (did I mention that my wife also does that?) would notice.

19:04 < mattbuck> which seems like an incredibly bad idea to me
19:04 < wctaiwan> I honestly don't think requiring an ID to vote is unreasonable.
19:04 < wctaiwan> it protects the voters.
19:05 < mattbuck> accountability fine, but most people don't even know their MP's name, let alone anything about the opposition
19:05 < Tony_Sidaway> Soapy: you could do that, yes. But how many people do that? Statistic suggests that in-person voter fraud is almost non-existent.
19:05 < mattbuck> and how would I know anything about what is required to lead the police? it's not a political office, it's a bureaucratic job
19:05 < mattbuck> wctaiwan, I agree, it's not unreasonable if a few conditions are satisfied
19:06 < mattbuck> 1) the ID is easy to get and free to get
19:06 < mattbuck> 2) everyone knows what ID they need

19:11 < mattbuck> 3) they don't care
19:11 < Dcoetzee> Tony_Sidaway: A more interesting question is: does who you vote for matter in the long run? Or will "enough" people of each party eventually get elected to do all the things they all want to do?

19:18 < wctaiwan> (as in, supporting it can't possibly affect your life in any significant manner)
19:18 < Dcoetzee> Well yeah
19:19 < Dcoetzee> But if you can get it through referendum you don't have to worry about a court battle later, so that's nice.
19:19 < wctaiwan> Prop 8.
19:19 < Tony_Sidaway> "In California pretty recently a Proposition to postpone enactment of environmental legislation failed. Supporters argued the economy was slow and people are hit hard. Apparently people can think about long term consequences sometimes.
19:19 < Tony_Sidaway> "

19:20 < Soapy> im glad I dont have to live in California
19:20 < SigmaWP> Ugh
19:20 < SigmaWP> I hate RPP
19:20 < mattbuck> prop 8 happened because that was the way to get it repealed
19:20 < SigmaWP> All the wannabe admins are !voting there
19:20 < mattbuck> the anti-gay rights groups would have had no standing to appeal the law
19:21 < Tony_Sidaway> Dcoetzee: no, it's what it is: a state avoiding environmental legislation on short term grounds.
19:21 < mattbuck> especially because most of them were out of state
19:21 < wctaiwan> mattbuck: the US is funny like that, I think.
19:21 < Soapy> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:RPP that's weird
19:21 < Soapy> Ive never seen "voting" on RPP before
19:21 < Soapy> is that a very new phenomenom?
19:21 < SigmaWP> No
19:21 < SigmaWP> A few weeks now
19:21 < mareklug> Tony_Sidaway:  California is a  specific flavor, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecotopia
19:21 < Dcoetzee> Tony_Sidaway: The Proposition was mostly funded by big oil companies. No surprise...
19:21 < SigmaWP> I can't think of anything snarky and policy-related to say to them, either
19:21 < wctaiwan> SigmaWP: bring it up on VPR?
19:21 < wctaiwan> I agree that it shouldn't be happening.
19:22 < Dcoetzee> Tony_Sidaway: California doesn't generally avoid environmental legislation, at least compared to other US states.
19:22 < wctaiwan> maybe not VPR… not so much a policy thing
19:22 < Dcoetzee> They have really strict emissions laws, industrial standards, etc.
19:22 < Soapy> yeah
19:22 < Soapy> California is like a whole other country
19:22 < Tony_Sidaway> I can't believe that Ecotopia is an actual book.
19:23 < lucasoutloud> what is it about?
19:23 < mareklug> an actual famous book
19:23 < SigmaWP> [19:22:43] �<�Soapy�>� California is like a whole other country
19:23 < wctaiwan> SigmaWP: I'm serious. If you don't raise it I probably would.
19:23 < lucasoutloud> Hmm. If it so famous, then why haven't I heard of it
19:23 < Tony_Sidaway> States _exist_ to impose emissions laws, to exact taxes and whatnot. If you don't like that, fuck off somwhere else.
19:23 < SigmaWP> wctaiwan: I'll try to talk to them

19:25 < lucasoutloud> Eh? They aren't attacking me
19:25 < SigmaWP> Elduen: Sorry, I was only seeing if there were limits
19:25 < lucasoutloud> Not in the slightest.
19:26 < Elduen> Nonetheless that was really dumb.
19:26 < SigmaWP> Indeed, but WP:BEANS
19:27 < Tony_Sidaway> Yes, beans. My point was that California has laws which are quite sensible.
19:27 < lucasoutloud> Augh, both of my web browsers aren't getting anywhere
19:27 < Tony_Sidaway> You don't like the laws? Fine. Don't live in California.
19:27 < Dcoetzee> Generally I assume if someone hasn't heard of something it's because their interests lie elsewhere rather than youth :-P But I agree that it wasn't really an attack.
19:27 < Dcoetzee> I hadn't heard of the book either.
19:28 < lucasoutloud> Tony_Sidaway: More like don't live anywhere but antartica
19:28 < Tony_Sidaway> Attack or not, it went on for quite a while and seemed to comprise speculation about somebody's age.
19:28 < Dcoetzee> And...?
19:29 < Dcoetzee> Speculating about someone's age may be a little rude but it's no big deal :-P
19:29 < Tony_Sidaway> lucasoutloud: please explain your reasoning. Why should I go to live at the South Pole?
19:29 < lucasoutloud> no laws
19:29 < lucasoutloud> is my point
19:29 < Dcoetzee> Tony_Sidaway: The argument is that every place has some laws you disagree with.
19:29 < Soapy> there's some laws there
19:29 < Dcoetzee> I think that's true of everyone.
19:29 < lucasoutloud> Soapy: Really?
19:30  * mattbuck speculates that Dcoetzee is actually a penguin
19:30 < Dcoetzee> There aren't laws in Antarctica because it's not a nation. Same with international waters and also the moon.
19:30 < lucasoutloud> Oh, and another thing, as long as I've been on IRC networks it has always been standard to speculate eachother's ages.
19:30 < Soapy> Antractica's all owned by various countries
19:30 < Tony_Sidaway> So is the point,as made, that California isn't so bad after all, because it had pretty decent laws?
19:30 < Tony_Sidaway> If so I agree.
19:30 < SigmaWP> wctaiwan: hi
19:30 < mattbuck> yeah, we British claim antarctica
19:30 < SigmaWP> wctaiwan
19:30 < mattbuck> part of it anyway
19:31 < Dcoetzee> Antarctica is not a part of any nation. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antarctic_Treaty_System
19:31 < Soapy> and the US and Chile and Norway and S Africa and Australi and a few others I think
19:31 < Dcoetzee> "The treaty, entering into force in 1961 and currently having 49 signatory nations, sets aside Antarctica as a scientific preserve, establishes freedom of scientific investigation and bans military activity on that continent."
19:31 < mareklug> mattbuck:  I believe the Nrwegians got there first...
19:32 < Soapy> some people think Antarctica once had an aboriginal population descended from South Americans
19:32 < mattbuck> not relevant mareklug
19:32 < mattbuck> we claim it anyway
19:32 < lucasoutloud> Wait, really?
19:32 < mattbuck> but not all of it
19:32 < mattbuck> we're not greedy
19:32 < Soapy> i
19:32 < SigmaWP> [19:32:21] �<�mattbuck�>� we're not greedy
19:32 < SigmaWP> lol
19:32 < Dcoetzee> I wonder does the Justice League headquarters in Antarctica violate the Treaty?
19:33 < Soapy> i'd be curious, though, could you just go to antartcica and live there permanently if you were a fugitive? not that I'd expect you'd survive, since you cant grow food there
19:33 < SigmaWP> mattbuck: While capitalism is capitalism people will be paid to be greedy
19:33 < mattbuck> yes, and that's why capitalism is a bad idea
19:33 < Soapy> and youd have a better chance of survival living somewhere in the USA hard to find
19:33 < SigmaWP> wctaiwan: [19:33:18] �<�mattbuck�>� yes, and that's why capitalism is a bad idea
19:33 < SigmaWP> HA!
19:33 < mattbuck> unfortunately it works better than most other things
19:33 < mattbuck> communism is great except it goes against human nature
19:33 < lucasoutloud> oh hey sigma. It's been a while.
19:33 < Tony_Sidaway> My favourite map is one that shows where tax money comes from and where it goes to.
19:34 < SigmaWP> lucasoutloud: hi
19:34 < lucasoutloud> :3
19:34 < Dcoetzee> Soapy: I dunno if the Treaty bans police action in Antarctica. I assume in such a situation the UN could work something out.
19:34 < lucasoutloud> Tony_Sidaway: I don't suppose you can provide a link to it?
19:34 < Tony_Sidaway> Tax money tends to come from "blue states" that have Democratic legislators and whatnot. It goes to the "Red states" where the raving loonies are in charge.
19:34 < Soapy> apparently there's a law against hunting penguins in Antarctica
19:35 < mattbuck> Tony_Sidaway, it's america

19:54 < lucasoutloud> No.
19:54 < mattbuck> I mean, yes, be neutral in your edits, but if you're neutral on everything it's likely you're also apathetic and so not interested in editing the article
19:55 < Dcoetzee> lucasoutloud: Just ignore them.
19:55 < lucasoutloud> Besides, userboxes help users find out eachothers interests and potentially find help with editing articles relevant to those interests.
19:55 < Dcoetzee> It's very clear that policy currently permits the use of userboxes in such a manner, so don't worry about it.

20:09 < lucasoutloud> they didn't do a rangeban?
20:09 < Dcoetzee> lucasoutloud: Try web browsing with Javascript and images turned off
20:09 < Dcoetzee> lucasoutloud: You should get reasonable performance
20:09 < lucasoutloud> >images turned
20:09 < lucasoutloud> off
20:09 < lucasoutloud> But as much as I go on 4chan that would be unreasonable
20:09 < mareklug> what is your mac model?
20:09 < lucasoutloud> 2006 iMac
20:09 < mattbuck> surely you need images off for 4chan :p

20:10 < lucasoutloud> mattbuck: No, it is an imageboard after all
20:11 < lucasoutloud> Dcoetzee: if I had an extension that did that I'd still have to load images to convert to ASCII
20:11 < Dcoetzee> lucasoutloud: Not necessarily, if it uses an intermediate server to perform the conversion.
20:11 < lucasoutloud> I know not of such a service
20:12 < Dcoetzee> Nor I, but it'd be cool!
20:12 < lucasoutloud> yeah, it would
20:12 < lucasoutloud> but that would mean it would have to know what page you were looking at to load it
20:12 < Dcoetzee> I do know Opera has an intermediate server that downgrades quality of images.
20:12 < lucasoutloud> it'd be kind of like opera mobile

20:20 < Dcoetzee> lucasoutloud: I'll link you their music video, the one they made in the church.
20:20 < Tony_Sidaway> Yes, hooliganism, for protesting about a law that outlaws expressions of homosexuality.
20:20 < Dcoetzee> lucasoutloud: It's not great...
20:20 < lucasoutloud> Dcoetzee: oh :(

20:21 < Tony_Sidaway> They have been sentenced to long time in prison for standing in a Cathedral and protesting.
20:22 < Dcoetzee> Tony_Sidaway: I agree that it was a grave offense against freedom of speech to punish them.

20:26 < SigmaWP> Jasper_Deng: We can check his first 10 edits
20:26 < SigmaWP> Usually they point to a user sandbox
20:26 < lucasoutloud> So, what do y'all think about the Assange affair, now that Ecuador is taking him in?
20:26 < SigmaWP> And contain "roland" or "ferry"
20:27 < Jasper_Deng> That might work, though it might require testing
20:27 < SigmaWP> It will be entirely human-supervised
20:27 < Dcoetzee> SigmaWP: Are the IPs checkuser confirmed or were they added afterwards?

21:04 < Tony_Sidaway> Why do we delete articles?
21:04 < Earwig> Hi
21:04 < Earwig> SigmaWP: okay...
21:04 < Tony_Sidaway> Mostly we just ignore new articles, so why did we choose to delete _this_ one? It's a good question.
21:05 < Tony_Sidaway> SPeaking purely personally, my position is that deletion has always been pointless and a waste of time except where an article is harmful and cannot conceivably be rendered harmless.
21:06 < Tony_Sidaway> I find this to be an unassailable position, after nearly a decade.
21:07 < Tony_Sidaway> If the article is silly and useless, nobody will look at it, and if that ever becomes a problem we can simply automatically delete articles that nobody edits or looks at for a year or two.
21:07 < Tony_Sidaway> If the article is embarrassing, edit it until it isn't embarrassing.

23:27 < russavia> not if they have publicised it, it isn't
23:27 < russavia> and that is what i am asking...if anyone know if they have, then its quite ok
23:27  * wctaiwan has a mousepad that comes with a wiper
