Spelling

Quit with the spamming and use correct spelling.

  • Diamond is not "Dimonde" or "Dimond".
  • Weavile is not "Wevile".
  • Celebi is not "Celibi".
  • You is not "u".
  • Are is not "r".

And Pokémon is spelled with an accented é and is always capitalized. It's Pokémon. Not pokemon. Please follow the Bulbapedia:Manual of style. If you delete my comments I'll just revert it. You shouldn't delete comments by others just because you don't like them.

Dispute

In response to what your mom wrote to me regarding , the comment that said "you idiot" was posted by Kenji-Girl, as you can see by clicking on the "ガール" in the "--ケンジガール 22:13, 3 September 2007 (UTC)" at the end of the comment. --Shiny NoctowlTalk|Trivia quiz 01:30, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

For some reason, the email address wouldn't work. Here is a copy of the message:

Dear Pinkachu's mom,
In response to your comment on this page (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User_talk:Shiny_Noctowl) regarding (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Talk:Pinkachu), I would like to point out that by viewing the earliest revision history (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/w/index.php?title=Talk:Pinkachu&diff=prev&oldid=175973), which is what the article was first composed of, and by clicking on the "ガール" at the end of the comment's signature, you can see that the offending comment ("You idiot! Tracey was the one with them. Not Brock!") was posted by Kenji-Girl, whose talk page is located here (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/User_talk:Kenji-girl).

Sincerely, Shiny Noctowl

Resolution

Dear both Pinkachu and Pinkachu's mom,

I do regret that Kenji-girl called Pinkachu an idiot, but you do realize that following the old adage of "sticks and stones can break my bones but words can never hurt me" is the best possible thing to do in any case, especially here on the internet. Your daughter's ten. Great. She didn't read the rules. She made an article that is extremely not notable (Pikachu turned pink for not even one episode, and even then, it wasn't even entirely pink), made it with terrible grammar, and what's worse, actually advertised her friend code (which, on a wiki, would eventually cause a person to have no idea whose friend code is being offered) on the page she made. Reading the manual of style, the essential rulebook of what you can and can't do here, is a better idea than whining and threatening to our users that you "will have the FBI crawling up [their] butt[s] with a microscope". First off: the FBI doesn't care that your kid got called a name on the internet. Period. If, at ten, she can't take being called an idiot, then what's she going to do in three years when some moron kids at school start calling her worse. You may not think it will happen, but believe me, it will.

Really, if your daughter doesn't stop asking you for help, and if you don't stop threatening every single little thing that doesn't believe that she's perfect in every way, you're eventually going to, later in her life, be hit by the chans (and that's a really bad thing, not even the worst case scenario). It's the internet. It has no significance, and taking it seriously is probably the dumbest thing to do. She's ten now, will you still be yelling at forums, wikis, and other sites when she's 12? 14? 16? Age does not mean that the rules mean nothing. If it did, then every kid who got in a car accident at 17 would be let off the hook because "they didn't know what they were doing". Instead, look at that insurance cost skyrocket.

In closing, don't take the internet so seriously, but do please take rules seriously. And this means the rules of English, too. I'll assume since you have previously stated that you're from Texas that it's your native language (I could be wrong, don't go killing me over this), so please, use it properly. Also, calling the FBI or FCC on someone who called your kid a name is really, really dumb to do. All it does is make you look like some crazy, overreactive parent, and I'd imagine that you're a lot more reasonable under normal situations. We're not a threat. Most of the internet is not a threat until you abuse it. Alex Wuori and Hal Turner can certainly tell you that much. Jeez, look at it: your daughter was called an idiot ON THE INTERNET. It's not like someone came to your house and kicked her in the shin, bashed her over the head with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, and ran off screaming "VOLDEMORT KILLS SNAPE! VOLDEMORT KILLS SNAPE!" It was a name, a name that likely is said more than a hundred times a day at whatever school she goes to. You should see it from our point of view, it's not her fault at all, but everyone gets aggravated when yet another person walks in, ignores the rules, and just starts editing away, punching away at the keys as if they were an enemy, then saving their page over and over again with a one-letter change (granted, Pinkachu didn't do that last part, but it happens often enough to make us a little bit more than mad).

So really, what I gotta ask of you: Calm down. I will again stress: THIS IS THE INTERNET. It's like middle school times nine thousand. You can't take it, maybe you're just not ready. I know that when I first started I would have never been ready for what I do now. Take it slow. Perhaps the best advice I can give to your daughter is this: LURK MOAR. Lurking around websites teaches you how to use them better, and after a while, you'll likely be able to contribute much better than you would otherwise.

Thanks,
TTEchidna

I practice internet and useage law, so thank you for your expert opinion as a board-certified attorney from the netherland on what is exculpatory evidence to the FCC. Your apology on behalf of Kenji is accepted. Parents who protect their children are applauded by the government, not berated and I appreciate your epistle. I am saving it in the event my child is accosted again by any other user. Your opinion doesn't matter to me at all. I will ensure she reads the rules, you ensure your dried up geeks who get their rocks off insulting others follow the rules.

Wait--isn't this whole thing about insulting other people? So calling someone who insulted you a "dried up geek who gets their rocks off insulting others" seems pretty insulting to me...Just sayin'. By the way, Pinkachu, check your inbox. If you didn't receive an e-mail from [email protected], please let me know. There's an important message which needs to be conveyed to you from the staff. evkl 15:27, 4 September 2007 (UTC)

Wait, someone threatened LEGAl action because someone called their child an idiot on the internet?Have they ever used the internet before?NubcakeGood Day;DCM
