Argh! Had to send Writeups disappearing into the void into the void. binarydreams complains of being "sick of creating pointless writeups." So are we. Try creating meaningful write-ups, hint, hint, hint.

Disinfected various crap by stile who tells us all the things he hates and concludes whom we should vote for (even if we come from all over the world). Looks like he's about to get a nervous breakdown. Words of advice, kid: When shit happens, wipe it off and flush the wipe. Read Man will even get used to the gallows for more.

jkfghldagv's Useful Latin Phrases deletae sunt. Had you posted that under Highschooler's Bad Latin Puns, or something like that, I might have been more forgiving cum faecibus tuis, puer. Or maybe not.... To translate: The information was incorrect (bad Latin). The worst sin any writer can commit is presenting fiction as fact. Plus, the noder was rude toward the author of the original (very factual and excellent) write-up, which is another mortal sin.

Editor Log: October 14, 2000
Everything Editor Logs
Reminisce | Imagine that!

Yes, these tend to be every few days. I like to consolidate. Without further hesitation:

Killed, beaten, mangled and burned:

  • ugly by trakwebster - fled user, linkless writeup, yo mamma joke
  • Johann Pachelbel by cmc - one liner about Canon in D sucking
  • John Adams composer by cmc - one liner: "more to come." /msg'd Pedro about moving his to the non-namespaced node
  • What's the best t-shirt slogan you've ever seen? by tripitaka - one liner, -4 rep, "funking for Jamaica, damn that guy was cool"
  • teardrop by bwindle - linkless, outdated DoS exploit mentioned.
  • Mr. Pickle's Abortion Clinic by moroboshi - Bad, disgusting joke that is obviously an "inside joke." Save it for your inside group of friends next time, moroboshi.
  • speed seduction by jessicapierce - very bad writeup at -17 that made little to no sense. coupled with two other fairly bad writeups (one is at -4, the other was brand new and seems to rely on the -4 one, which is why both were spared, for now) This node was also removed from the Page of Cool for generally sucking.
  • glock 21 by Warren - no explanation of what it is, just gunspeak and that it shuts up "alot" of crackers.
  • Some writeup of mine whose title I can't even remember now that I think to add it here by, obviously, hramyaegr - Trust me, it sucked, even if I can't remember the title. And yes, it came with penalty, because I deserved it. Remember, editors cannot kill without penalty.
  • i'v got 13 words for ya
  • by M68030 - Some backwater wrestling fan's recantation of a WWF high school dropout's recitation of a tongue-twister. Misspelled at that.

everyone writeups now removed:

  • Peep surgery by everyone - linkless "see http://foo"
  • Fans of Frozen Women Survey by everyone - Thanks for taking the survey, but next time add content or keep it to yourself, please.
  • ILOVEYOU by everyone - "see ILOVEYOU script" See writeup disappear, bucko!
  • Does minimum writeups to level really increase node quality? by Shanoyu & everyone - Both linkless, with Shanoyu mentioning how few writeups until his next level and everyone saying that it does, since he's anonymous.
  • jessicapierce awdasd by everyone - Consists of "she's mine" repeated.
  • node surf by everyone - States that it was removed last time and wants to wait to see if it gets killed again before they retype it. Don't bother, everyone.
  • Ramsey Hazbun by everyone - Linkless and apparently written by a 13 year old 1337 h4x0r.
  • I hate you guys by everyone - incorrect and incomplete lyrics (three lines) to a song from South Park. Yes, I could have logged in and put in the correct lyrics. But remember, it's not my job to finish someone else's work.
  • but you really are! by everyone - One-liner, "maintained by 65535"
  • The Roots Come Alive by everyone - He seems to like this hip hop group and wants you to steal this album.
  • dream log: May 12, 2000 by everyone - A summary: "hot grits, cmdrtaco, natalie portman, first post." Leave slashdot to slashdot, kids...

Sent to Page of Cool:

Writeups Removed

#HACK Philosophy by pzn. Rude, inflammatory droppings from an 3l33t dude's mouth under the title of 'philosophy'.
#hack by emmanuel and swern. One liners, and useless.
p0sse by emmanuel. Mispelled, inarticulate flame.
#!/bin/sh by pzn. Copied the writeup above it exactly. Great.
NO CHIX, NO BOTZ, NO ESKIMOS, NO HUNCHBACKZ, NO FISH, NO KATZ, by jhalt and swern. Pretty much the same crap as #hack philosophy, except explained. It didn't make it much better.
The management reserves the right to remove writeups on account by Yoshi and a life in hell. E1 writeups by E1 noders - they age poorly, and can't be revived.
obfuscation by pzn and confuzd. Webster beat them down, and fled noders aren't rewriting noders.
rocket by Uber Dingus. Old, highly pointless writeup.
capybara by k_hokanson and Uber Dingus. Winnowing the old.
navel by confuzd and sank. Really poor definitions.
quiet by bugtwo and bookworm. Ditto.
shotgun by bishop. A one-line reference to Sluggy Freelance without supporting content, and it's been done better elsewhere. Pass.
quake3arena by matta and cavediver. Poor writeups, and the title's wrong.
nofx by sdt and requiem. Pushed aside by superior writeups. Fled noders are hard to convince to improve...
operating system by requiem. One line of definition, one line of flame. I want more.
bill gates is god by gunga-din and ascending. Typical MS idiocy.
ray guns by slush. Pointless e1 writeup.
mosr by slush. Incredibly uninformative writeup of a website.
deflection of the alien radation by slush. One incoherent line.
holy hand grenade by slush. Another E1 definition replaced by newer, healthier writeups.
transporters by slush. Ramblings.
psychotic crazy military nutjobs by gtsum. Reasonless invective - telling us how horrible your hated group is without backing it up is just flaming.
Punks who make me want to be a cop with a steel head bashing baton by Atriol35. Very inflammatory statements without real reasoning behind it, and it was at -6. That's a sign there's a problem with it. Let's avoid these kind of nodes from any political spectrum.
cracker by FlexAble. Repeated a definition done better both before and after.
Everything is not anything by ZappaPhD. Old E1 response to a node by a fled noder, and fairly pointless.
TELLETUBBIES ATE MY BALLS by kail, O combat, frido. Painful and unnecessary.
Conneticuit by nosferatu. Mispelling.
raygun by mebreathing and lakeid. The first was incoherent, and the second was pointless.
radioactive flesh by mebreathing. Nonsense about rayguns without the effort that justifies.
The pixies by the_march_hare. E1 node by a fled user whose information is replicated below. Spydr was /msged.

I Beseech The Ghods to Remove Without Penalty:

#HACK philosophy. With the original idiocy removed, the rest of the writeups and the node can Go Towards the Light.
what did we do to you people? and just to help me get to his goddamn homenode... by nocodeforparanoia. We chatted, we /msged and we agreed that euthanasia was the best choice for these twisted souls.
Punks who make me want to be a cop with a steel head bashing baton. The original "I want to crack a hippy's skull" writeup is gone, so the response isn't quite needed.
Conneticuit. Just a note that the mispelled node's marked for destruction.

Yo, Ghods, Nodeshell Cleanup on Aisle:

psychotic crazy military nutjobs
#HACK philosophy
The management reserves the right to remove writeups on account
Writing crap nodes for the soul perpose of being downvoted.
screw welfare, let the poor starve so I can afford a bigger SUV conservatives
bill gates is god
ray guns

I Pray to the Ghods - Smite the Nodeless Users:

o ComBat

I Give Sweet Offerings to the Ghods For Editing Titles From:

walkin on the sun to Walkin' on the Sun. Yep, that's the official spelling according to the album.

Killed a November horror by zaks on Notes from the Underground: "An awful, boring book, written by a sick man. It really escapes me how such mindless drivel could ever have become popular." Now you know how we felt. Push the button, Frank.

Blessed the cheesemakers may be, but not Cheesemaker, not today. His ex-writeup on Soylent Green Jelly-Belly campaign said only "There's one way to waste your free time." Another would be reading writeups like that. Soylent freegel is made of people! You've got to tell them! Soylent freegel is people!

I also punched myself by painfully nuking Copacabana, a one-liner which has since been far outdone. I might never get to level 8 if I keep shitcanning my awful writeups, but then what would be the point? Slow and steady wins the race; rocket boosters win the Darwin Award.

Writeups killed:

  • So,DMan doesn't want to be XP-pack raped? by --OutpostMir--: An "I abstain from DMan" sort of thing. I /msg'd Mir suggesting a nuke request, on the grounds that it was obsolete, and not a real masterpiece anyway. I'm just an editor here; all I can do is kill with the -5 XP penalty. He told me to go ahead and kill it myself: It's just a few points and he just wanted to be rid of it. Okay, it's his call: I killed it. So I'd just like to say that, not for the first time, --OutpostMir-- has won my Level-Headed User of the Day with Both Eyes on the Big Picture Award.

  • reet tarded abinals by canihelpyou:

    "Thi s i snt the next node in tthe right aiout the tretards were I can opractice writing up my practice typos and sthingds as think about this small people .... Ilistend to yoour tip about what is the best practice . I came back tho earth as a great rock and roll band for all ooff you dope dudes to listen and thhink abou twehat I am wtritng HE rr UNINTELLIGABLE? I don't thin k so I cabn read what I am typing just fine.. !

    I think this one is self-explanatory.

  • farting blood by AKA STONES:

    I myself am not actually sure whether or not I've farted blood...I mean I figure I have because of the blood stains found in my underwear day after day..but I ventured even further into the idea and thought to myself, "Hey, wait a minute, maybe thats just from my hemmeroids and the wedge that must insue when I fall asleep...friction can be a bitch."


Nodeshells to be Removed: So,DMan doesn't want to be XP-pack raped?

Regarding Lord Brawl's comments above, I can see his point, but jkfghldagv is a bad example. jkfghldagv submitted a writeup in a language of which he has little or no knowledge. An editor who knows the language well deleted the writeup. It never for an instant occurred to jkfghldagv that his writeup may simply have been wrong. He never considered the possibility that he might be fallible. No, he assumed that whizkid was just randomly picking on him for the hell of it. When your entire worldview is founded on the assumption that you can never be wrong about anything, it's time to take a deep breath and, well, grow up. You think editors always get everything their own way? You think we never make mistakes and end up apologizing? Life is like that, my friend. Try flouncing out on your employer the first time you make a mistake and aren't big enough to admit it -- or do the same to your friends, or your family. Little Jimmy Cooper did that at my fourth birthday party, and he wasn't invited back for the next one.

On 10/15/00, Shanoyu added the following writeup to this node. I spoke to him about how we tend to be pretty harsh on user writeups in ed logs, because ed logs serve a specific purpose and non-editor writeups interfere with that. We decided that I'd kill his writeup, but reproduce it in its entirety here in my own writeup. He feels that what he has to say belongs in this node, and I can see his point. I don't entirely agree with him, but he's being calm and reasonable about it, so here it is:


You know what? People shouldn't make jokes in editor logs.

After being confused myself and reading the corresponding daylog (October 15, 2000) to Whizkid's action on Useful Latin Phrases, here at first he makes it look like he nuked a node because it was misplaced. You don't see 'The information was factually incorrect' for a while into his editor log and the end result is that someone ends up nuked.

I doubt the noder in question had time to figure out the fact that whiz' was making a joke before he flew off into a mad rage and demanded his own nuking, so please, editors, for Pax Everythingus (Bastardized, yes?) please leave your jokes until the end, not the other way around. To make jokes about destroying what people consider to be work that they poured, at least some energy into, before providing the immediate reason for which it was destroyed, can only provide us with strife and make everyone fly into rage over utterly stupid misunderstandings.
