QuoteHow gullible do you think that we are? You personally attacked a well respected editor based solely on your personal bias against her gender identity yet your unblock request does not even acknowledge that this is the main reason for your block. How could you possibly expect anything other than an indefinite block for that? You are not the victim here. We have to protect our editors from abuse and your block was entirely necessary to achieve that. Had you not been blocked for that then you would have been blocked for edit warring. Had you not been blocked for that then you would possibly have been blocked for your extreme POV edits. --DanielRigal (talk) 23:38, 20 January 2024 (UTC)
Quote from: Milo on January 21, 2024, 08:30:15 AMThe reply to their ban appeal that claims they are a totally reasonable and neutral person is very good.
Quote from: Moj on January 21, 2024, 08:49:36 AMIf nothing else, Poirots' giant timeline that nobody reads has just pointed me to the existence of Crisis Zone, which I've just read a ton of. It's demented and hilarious, so thanks for that.
Quote from: Greyhound on January 21, 2024, 09:14:58 AMThat reply is amazing.

Quotea reaction that perpetrators of wrongdoing, such as sexual offenders, may display in response to being held accountable for their behavior. Some researchers indicate that it is a common manipulation strategy of psychological abusers.
Quote from: The Late Satoru Iwata on January 21, 2024, 03:44:20 AMAlso, Graham really failed to do something spectacularly stupid at the end of the last one. I assume he's just running late.

Quote from: Greyhound on January 21, 2024, 09:14:58 AMThat reply is amazing. Also based on the edit history I'm pretty sure that's a Stuart Campbell/Wings Over Scotland alt account? It created the page for Wee Blue Book and has tons of edits on Stuart Campbell's page + other Scottish independence stuff. Also started life as AlanLertreader but changed to AnnaLertreader at some point - I guess womanface is ok when you're doing it to troll wikipedia?
Quote from: Stinky Lomax on January 21, 2024, 04:17:51 PMThis reminded me to donate to Wikipedia.Mid-nineties Father-Ted-watching, Amiga-Power-reading me would be very sad to see what happened to Linehan and Stuart Campbell.
Quote from: Mx Wrongs on January 21, 2024, 06:36:37 PMI'm pretty sure, by his own admission, Stuart Campbell was an obnoxious cunt even back then.
Quote from: thr0b on January 21, 2024, 06:51:14 PMHe was. And he was also a really good games writer. The two weren't mutually exclusive, and probably the former helped the latter. But now he just does the latter.
Quote from: Mx Wrongs on January 21, 2024, 07:05:00 PMHe designed levels, the real hard work on old platforms like that was done by programmers and artists. Like where he started off, on 8-bit ZX Spectrum games, someone else actually did the hard work.Games journalist, like music journalist? He was also a grifting cunt way back in the day.
Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on January 21, 2024, 07:35:07 PMHah. I remember when he put his Invision forum behind a paywall (because he was pretty much unemployable at that point), leading to an exodus of regulars. I'm sure at one point he was trying to charge money for rom downloads, which was somewhat dodgy. He must've been fucking delighted when the whole Scottish Independence angle just fell into his lap, the grift that keeps on giving.
Damien Burkeunread,22 Nov 1998, 08:00:00Or should I say CLEAR *is* Stuart Campbell.Foolish old me, on seeing chunks of my web site republished on the CLEARsite (some of the author's permissions to distribute their games from my"Free games" page), emailed CLEAR to ask them to link to my page ratherthan copy it without even crediting it.While 'Bongo' then credits my site by name (but not as a link), he won'tlink to the page with the original permissions on them... a fewdeliberately argumentative and obtuse emails later, with much use of theroyal 'we' and I finally twig what is going on. Must be getting slow inmy old age. Look at the headers from the last mail from 'Bongo' (my ownaddress slightly mangled by me here):
