Nun, Wayne has decided not to totally block your posting, but you prefer deleting all your posts to just removing the pointless rambling ones. Here’s a solution that you both will think is OK. Just stop posting. Isn’t that simple?
I’m sorry that your life is a mess, but what are you accomplishing posting here? You must gain some satisfaction from it or you wouldn’t do it. Here’s an alternative: start your own website. There you will be able to post as much and as often as you wish. You could even attract like-minded contributors who have similar mental and physical problems.
Without malice, just tired of your incessant rambling and paranoia,
Got to agree with Atsap, nun; your posts are a tiresome, repetitive, irrelevant pile of self pitying rubbish. Whether or not people believe your devices have been hacked is not the issue, the issue is whether or not people give a toss, and I for one don’t. No one here is responsible for any hacking that may or may not have taken place on your machine, so why keep whinging to us about it? No one here is responsible for your personal problems, nor are they able to help with them; why whinge about it here? You are totally inconsistent: you request that all your posts be removed and then when just a FEW are removed you bleat on about censorship! It must be becoming clear to you by now that you are a major irritation to a great many here so why don’t you listen to Atsap? If your posts are not getting to where you want them to go; don’t post, if you believe that your posts are being edited or changed; don’t post, if you think your posts are being intercepted by the Mother Ship; don’t post. I tell you what, just DON’T POST.
I’ve tried to ignore Nun for as long as she’s been posting, but I’ve come to the point where I feel I must weigh into this.
For the love of pasta, boot her out. Even when she does make some small sense, it contributes nothing to our community. She’s using us all in place of the proper therapy she sounds like she needs. This is not a forum for navel-gazing crap. I’m almost put off these posts when I see all the new ramblings from Nun. We need to maintain a certain standard of conduct if we are to gain the credibility that we deserve.
Get help, Nun, but get it somewhere else. We can’t help you.
SillyKiwiMan, and everyone
The right and decision to remove a poster remains with the Prophet Bobby. Since it goes against the principles of the site to remove a contributor for posting confused and convoluted navel gazing crap, it is probably not in the best interests of the site as a whole to remove her ability to post in total.
The standard of conduct we maintain, and the credibility associated with that, extends further than the abilities (or lack thereof) of a singular contributor. To quote Mal (FSM Car, 30/1/12 @ 11.36am) it also extends to free and open discussion. I have begun to remove the more irrelevant, repetitive and self deprecating posts she is putting up, and will continue to do so.
Wayne, while I agree with the principles of the site (in principle), I honestly think that it is NOT in the best interest of the site that she DOES continue to post, and the reasons are as follows; before nun started posting there was a rush of new posters to the site and the exchanges were stimulating and fast moving. Pretty much all of them no longer post, and I’m not talking just about the odd once only poster, but the likes of sky, wench melody, gordon uk and a host of others that we no longer see posting here. We now no longer see new posters and have lost virtually all the names that had become our congregation except the more devoted Pastafarians such as Atsap, Mal, theFewtheProud, Drained, Puppygoogoo et al, and arguably new blood and continued support is the lifeblood of any website. The CotFSM has, and continues although to a lesser extent now, done a great deal of good and we thank the Prophet Bobby for that, but Bobby and the Church can’t survive on good intentions alone and we who remain can only buy so many T-shirts. (No offense meant Bobby)
I’m fully convinced that the poor state of the community as it is now is a direct result of nun’s posts and that the situation will persist, as will she. This is just my view you understand, but we will never have any credibility all the time that visitors to the site are faced with a wall of garbage; I realize that you are working on that problem but you would have to work full time to stop it appearing at all and that would of course be impossible.
I don’t envy you this job Wayne and:
May the Sauce be with you
ps. Nice to see you too are hanging in there SillyKiwiMan.
I understand, and certainly see your point. I agree when you say that it may have put some regulars off and perhaps a few newbies.
All I can ask at this point to all of you- don’t let her keep you away from your Church. I don’t have right of removal- that remains the preserve of Bobby. Be assured however that I will not allow her to put up her wall of rubbish.
If we endured BG, we can endure this.
Thanks for your understanding. I enjoy the job, it is a great way to make a real contribution to the CotFSM. Circumstances prevent me at this point in my life to contribute in other ways, and doing this more than makes up for it.
Pesto Be Upon Us All!
I’ve not gone completely.
I would have to agree with you with regards to Nun, we have had the likes of SoG, BG, etc but none have been as successful as Nun at disrupting the site. Where with SoG I always felt he honestly thought he was trying to ‘save us’ and BG I had visions of him in a darken room screening at his monitor (which amused me) but with Nun it seems like a calculated attempt to stifle debate here. I see nothing in Nun’s posts which indicates there is a genuine want to communicate / debate with us.
Unless she/he/other is stopped from posting I cant see nothing improving.
The other reason I’m not as regular as I once was is the lack hate mail, the last hate mail was the 12th August 2011. Now I know some felt that is was just a good way to have a cheep shot at the religious but quite often it would spark a debate which would often end up being entertaining and educational (well for me at lest).
Well that’s my two pence!
I’d just like to see some good ‘ol fashioned trolling from a shit-stirrer, or a genuine but misguided attempt to “save” us all, or some spotty teenager simply trying to be a wanker. Anything but “LOOK AT ME! PITY ME! WHATEVER YOU DO IN HERE, IT’S ALL ABOUT ME” whiny, but mostly, nonsensical shit. Worst thing of all, is that Nun has us giving her that attention inadvertantly after all…
Come back Gib Yug, all is forgiven.
(Not really, you’re still an arse)
Hi Gordon, We missed you. Welcome back. Surely the Good FSM soon will bless us with some nourishing hate mail that will revive our languishing spirits.
Jeez, SoG. You have been hanging out here for a while, Gordon. You may even remember another regular Pastafarian poster, Wench Nikkee (sp?). Guess she’s devoting full time to the bio lab these days.
Happy Marinara to you,
I have been resisting adding to this conversation because it would be nice if the endless rambling topic would just die. But I can no longer resist: The truth is that after all this time, I still love the graphic on that car!
(Also, Wayne, would you please stop hacking your way in to my computer monitor and adjusting the brightness? I like to keep the overhead light off and I keep the monitor at a dimmer setting on PURPOSE. OK?)
Damn, you busted me tek. But I can’t stand it, I just HAVE to fiddle with the brightness on your monitor, and my life would not be the same without messing with your overhead light…
Does that mean you were also responsible for my car not starting yesterday? Bet you can change the course of mighty rivers, bend steel bars with your bare hands, and who, disguised as…… :-)
Keith, you have stumbled on the truth. Wayne is his last name…his first name is Bruce. With the Batputer, he can hack your computer, your car or your microwave. He has god-like powers second only to the FSM. Tread lightly, you miscreants.
Well I WAS trying to keep it all a secret like Superman and Spidey does but ROBIN has just blown it all.
Yes Keith. I shorted your solenoid by telekinesis, and you will also find that I was able to gum up your spark plugs through the same method.
Sorry mate, I’ll try and fix it for you tonight.
Ive been warned that if i persist in using textspeak, this is what my posts will translate 2, if attempts r made twds that end…4 that, i apologize, but appreci8 the spirit of this reply all the same…its more enjoyable reading when compared 2 my own posts…
Okay, I have to ask. What does that have to do with ANYTHING, much less this article?
i already informed u that POST my responding, what i reply 2 gets removed &/or what i m responding 2 on this display end is not ultimately what appears on this end…it is intentional & coincides with materials being removed without our permit from this device. Those responsible r not raising their hands 2 volunteer accomplishing this, but since u responded, i will ask if u r participating…tho i do not expect if u r that u will b confessing.
Why would you create another post instead of replying to my post above if you are responding to my question? My question wasn’t removed, but you posted here instead of in a reply to my question anyway.
Also, if someone is going around removing posts to which you have responded, why hasn’t anyone else noticed? And why would the post to which you respond be removed instead of your post?
Applying an Occam’s razor principle to this situation, I find it much easier to believe this is a case of user error rather than a conspiracy to make you look silly. I’m not ruling out the conspiracy, however. I’m just accepting the simpler explanation until I am presented with evidence to the contrary.
Oh, and by the way, you typing “i already told u…” means little to me since it takes military decryption technology to figure out what you’re saying most of the time.
You can accept the simpler explanation as something akin to ‘proven scientific fact’. There is no conspiracy to make nun sequator look silly.
I have penned an email to the Prophet regarding these site issues. We will work to fix them when we can. In the meantime I apologise for the difficulties this is causing.
I AM subject 2 conspirings, wayne; whether or not they involve members here, lurkers of same, or other parties going unnanounced, is another story…for a fact, our device was, indeed, undeniably HACKED. Y i continue using it, is questionable even 2 me, but make no mistake, i m being made a silly out of, 4 sure…
& nice car.
Wayne, I’ve got an idea…let’s wait until she’s not looking then run away!
Thanks for commenting on the car. Any chance you could confine your next post to the subject at hand and stop raving on with rubbish?
I’ve been laying off, trying to be nice and giving you the benefit of the doubt, “nun”. However, I have generally stopped trying to read your posts. Your text-syntax hurts my eyes. You say you use shortcuts because typing hurts, then I see that over 80% of recent comments are yours. Your rambling, paranoid postings rarely have any connection to the subject at hand. Give it a rest, will you?
I am pretty over it as well. If it hurts so bad to type then why are you doing it at all? What you say doesn’t make sense most of the time, and if it does I really have no desire to read it anyway. Conspiracy against you my ass. I, personally, just don’t want to look at your crap cluttering the walls anymore.
No one is making “a silly” out of you. You are doing that just fine all by yourself…
Couldn’t agree more. The worst part is finding others posts to see where the conversation, topic, etc is going. Being one of the ‘lucky’ ones that has young people working for him i can understand text-syntax and once i saw the incoherent ramblings i just gave up.
tFtPtM, Drained, stylus, puppygoogoo, Rev Toni, Mal, Atsap, and anyone I missed….
I register that as enough ‘complaints’, and have given nun two warnings. As I posted above, I don’t hand out a third. I will leave initial comments but have begun removing the rambling follow-ons.
My apologies if this interferes with your right of reply, and thanks for your understanding. Nun, you are not prevented from replying but please a) keep your suffering somewhat private, b) stop waffling on about hacked devices and conspiracy theories and c) please attempt to limit your posts to a singular reply, or at the very least, relevant replies.
May Sauce Be With You All!
Thanks Wayne. It’s past time to limit Nun’s posts. This site is not dedicated to hosting the miscellaneous ramblings of the mentally disturbed. Nun, I suggest you get professional help. Your anguish is obvious, but none of us here can help you. Take the time you waste on the keyboard and use it to get psychiatric counseling.
Sumitted without malice,

is this site a democracy, or a regular coffee meeting with the board, or what….id like to have a say about how my content gets edited, if u are gonna b removing posts as such, i did pointedly request you pleas do ALL removed or, nun…looks like theres PLENTY of support to just remove them ALL which is what I vote for,, i seconded it. Shit i spilled my coffee…
Are you denying my request because you find any distress caused by non compliance amusing, or want to leave enuf of it up there to justify leaving up all the complaints about it because it helps support when im finally asked 2 pack my things & go, or ?
I Vote,what MAL said. About my evident objective stoopidity. One plus on that side is, i will not ever make it to “Evil Genius“ status. At this point i would settle for non sentient being. But, everyones,gotta start somewhere.
& Watch it, driving that car on the road you’ve pictured here..no accidents or loading too many into too little a space..or @ least no accidents.
The Reverend Toni Rigatoni says: January 27, 2012 at 5:32 AM
My parents tried that, years ago.
I should probably not tell u it didnt work, so i wont.
Thanks Wayne! And what Atsap said. That about sums it up.
Yes, and it might just get to be that many if you don’t accept the terms given. I think Wayne’s terms are more than fair. You are starting to drive a lot of people up the wall.
Nun has voted to remove all of her posts. Wayne, please follow through.
Not a democracy, you are just annoying everyone who does come here on a regular basis to the point that they don’t want to come anymore. Want your posts gone? Fine. Then Wayne can take care of that (which I am sure is a process, since there are so many, so please be patient), and you can find another website to hang out on…
No, I am denying your request because it goes against the principle which the Prophet Bobby signed me on to do the job in the first place. If I remove all your posts I remove your right of posting in total. My personal viewpoint does not come into this, I must act in the interest of all posters on the site. That includes yourself, as well as those who are annoyed with it. I have tried to find a happy medium here Nun. The least you can do is accept and abide by the decision I have made, which allows you to continue posting on topics of interest here while seeking to keep others happy by removing the wall of rubbish.
Don’t like my decision? Go elsewhere.
I’m of the opinion that removing nun’s previous posts would be a waste of time and effort in any case, she would almost certainly just keep posting her nonsense and fill the posts with her lunatic ravings all over again. Bloody hell, I thought BG was a pain in the arse but he could have learned a thing or two from her!
I’m just curious Wayne, but BG was successfully eliminated from the site so what makes nun a special case? As I say, just curious.
I personally believe Nun’s case is different from BG’s because as far as I can tell, she does not intend to troll. It is simply a byproduct of her continued presence. While BG was trying to cause a ruckus, Nun seems to truly believe that she has been personally wronged by one or more people on this website, so she would feel justified in wanting to talk about it.
Also, Nun occasionally actually makes relevant, original comments. One can be seen at the very end of one of her posts above. (Jan 29 @ 3:56pm)
While I do feel that something should be done about all of the constant rambling about conspiracies and such (thank Wayne for all of his hard work so far), I do not believe that simply removing Nun from the site is in line with our principles of free and open discussion, and it would just serve to further alienate people.
Mal has pretty much hit the nail on the head. BG was deliberately provocative, refused to debate with any sense, and set out intentionally to cause problems. In short, he was a troll in every sense of the word. Not only that, he was personally threatening. Nun does not fit that criteria so it is not within reason for me to totally remove her contributions.
4 the last time, i do not know whom has hacked our device, fd with the display, so forth. I was letting u kno that theres a HISTORY of spoofing & other interference not ltd to online for that matter & u could not possibly acct for everyone in the group, notably anyone not making presence known & cannot rule out that i may have been tracked here by someone interfering on this end not officially even neccessarily a member of group.
Also, removing only PART of postings is a type of censorship, which u have engaged in, by doing so…& i m not alone in being censored or objecting 2 it, just that my objections r pointless, whereas persons whom rally against censoring & actually come up with a useful solution, or one in progress, actually attempt to prevent, it.
TOR is one example of this.
I post on TOR as well, and if you look hard enough you will probably find my pseudonym on that site.
There are fundamental differences in the way those who post on and manage TOR work, as opposed to how we do. The rule of thumb here is that if you post something that, for whatever reason is open to criticism, other posters are given much more reign to reply in kind. In other words, posts are left to the ‘peanut gallery’ to respond. TOR’s moderation is far more rigid than ours, by virtue of the fact that it is discussion on fantasy novel reading, and therefore more conservative in regards to its discussion.
Venganza is a site that deals with the parody of religion. Therefore, we can expect to receive a far larger amount of intentionally provocative, questioning and protesting comments on our site. So we need to be a lot more ‘loose’, for want of a better word, in what we moderate here. TOR’s approach will not be adopted here, nor is it relevant to the site. That is not to say TOR’s approach is wrong or misguided, because for that forum, that approach works very well.
I have to ask nun, do you post on TOR.com using the syntax you do here? I couldn’t see the likes of Freelancer or Wetlandernw having much tolerance for that. Given how effective they are in panning people, and how highly regarded proper grammar is on TOR, I couldn’t see the tolerance level being very high…
Nun, I have posed a useful solution: STOP POSTING. Others agree that this is a useful solution.
So your computer is probably virused, but we are tired of hearing your paranoid proclamations about it. Rev Toni Rigatoni summarized it perfectly: we don’t give a damn about your hacked computer or your other pointless prose.
Wayne is being kind. If I could, I would block any future postings from you. You have constipated this site with your endless shit.
