2008-08-21 14:07:22   Howdy Josh, and Welcome to the Wiki! My name's Evan, pleased to meet you! Thanks for the feedback on G Street Pub, but somebody put back the comments you removed — your comment is still there and will be protected just the same. Everybody gets a say, but by tradition you can't silence another person unless they are being actually abusive. Check out the informal guide to the wiki for businesses for some more information. Once again, welcome to the wiki! —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards

2008-08-21 12:08:21   What up Lawson? Aye, you might want to kick back on the "cruise control for cool" (google it)

anyways, hit me up next time your on the wiki! I'm moving forward with the volvo and would love for you to peep it out one time for me. Oh, and for laughs go on the wiki and check out the Davis Graduate bouncer incident


Some other comment that got deleted "mysteriously"—JoshLawson

2009-02-10 22:44:57   Your comment on Kyle2008's page makes you look like a raving lunatic, whether you have just cause for this or not. Just FYI. —MasonMurray

Well, I did my job properly then, and thank you! -JL

2011-01-20 08:00:13   I'm not sure that a lack of ability in speaking English is racism. It certainly is a very severe service problem. I doubt the workers at the McDonalds are lousy at English just to spite people of other races... plus Hispanics that don't speak Spanish. It's an issue that might be taken more seriously if you rewrote your comment to address the genuine communication difficulties in a more calm manner. As it is right now, it comes off as kind of a rant. Your comment, so it's up to you. I'm only saying this because it took me a couple of reads to realize that your actual complaint was about being unable to communicate orders. —JabberWokky

2011-03-21 21:36:12   LOL. Love the addition of the encyclopedia dramtica... So true sometimes. —Wes-P

The problem is, my link got removed. Too bad....I thought it added a lot to the conversation. If anyone actually took the time to read it, they'd have a laugh. But I got censored and then I got banned...I'm back now (we shall see for how long) but my link is gone some sort of communist dictatorship. I will be your voice of the wilderness, you will have to shut me up with force. —JoshLawson

So I will look into reinstating all of my "pertinent" posts. Good advice, JW...time to continue being a pain in the ass to everyone on here... —JoshLawson

2011-03-21 21:37:50   Heh. That ED article really isn't feeling like satire anymore. It's actually a fairly loving documentary. —JabberWokky

2011-03-21 23:23:11   Your page needed some color. Enjoy! —TomGarberson

Nope...still can't access my page to create something out of it. -JL

2011-03-21 23:59:34   Josh, please do not make personal attacks on the wiki. Argue all you want about the content, and call it trash, but please respect your fellow editors. There's lots of room to be goofy, but that's probably the closest thing to a rule around here. —Evan 'JabberWokky' Edwards,

So let's just see how long this link lasts: [WWW] Who's nuts now? Just ban me....I'm never gonna STFU. -JL

2011-03-22 08:00:56   I think that there's a fairly serious database error in the userbase. —JabberWokky I AM THE CHOSEN ONE. I HAVE DEFEATED THE MATRIX.

I maim to please....-JL

2011-03-22 08:05:13   Congratulations. However, I'm calling the sysadmins and seeing if we can get this fixed, as MY account is now FUBAR. —JabberWokky


2011-03-22 09:29:00   If the man who has his own fishing show on TV is stupid, what does that make the man who watches his show? —JoePomidor

It makes them AWESOME -JL

2011-03-22 17:22:21   whomever is doing the ED page needs to link Steve Ostrowskis ED page to it

♥♥♥ —StevenDaubert

2011-03-22 17:34:59   And MatthewKeys ED Page. —JabberWokky

2011-03-23 07:14:21   Hey, you created a Talk page instead of editing your profile. Would you like me to help you out and move that into your profile instead? Seems like you're having a bit of confusion about how to edit. —JabberWokky

Yes sir. -JL everyone who sees my page in the first 2 seconds will know what a fucking asshole I really am -JoshLawson

2011-03-24 17:52:45   You know, I was having a lousy couple hours. Then I checked Recent Changes and saw what you added to Banning leaf-blowers and the Railroad fence page, and I smiled. Sometimes I think people try to be polite (a good thing) and wind up being scared to voice their honest opinions (a bad thing). It's kind of refreshing to see you edit: it certainly spices things up, and hopefully makes people a bit more comfortable that they can voice their views. —JabberWokky

I am NOT EVER polite. Shooting from the hip is all I got..-JoshLawson

2011-03-24 23:06:19   Josh "Lawl"son —OliviaY I'm glad to see someone else use this moniker for him... —Daubert

I'm glad I started eating some fiber, because now I'm shitting more anal vomit.... —JL

2011-03-26 20:18:13   Hey, Bruce deleted your story off Friendly Cab. I kicked up a discussion to defend it. It looks like the only serious problem people have is the Facebook and full name. Any chance you would be willing to remove them? Either way, there's a discussion at ["Friendly Cab/Talk"]. —JabberWokky

Nope. Not a chance. I ABSOLUTELY need the name, FB account and everything else to stay intact...This site doesn't care about libel (which are lies) so I really believe that the whole truth needs to stand...So you believe in the 1st Amendment or some Stalinistic perversion of it? -JL

2011-03-27 07:14:28   I assume she will sober up to a state where she can be made aware of what she did. I wonder if someone will tell her. I also wonder about your shock and awe. —BruceHansen

2011-03-27 09:53:18   Josh, your personal attacks are way over the line. You also need to look up communism. To quote Inigo Montoya, "you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means." —TomGarberson

*How is writing the truth about someone's actions a "personal attack"? Robyn Bryson's name and FB link NEED to be preserved as a warning to other idiots not to misbehave in public. These entitled cunts need to be taught a lesson. As far as looking up "communism"....all I need to know about those pinko bastards is that they try to re-write history with lies and silencing the truth..all in the guise of some "collective community"....sound familiar? yeah....exactly -JL

2011-03-27 11:02:04   People are pretty sensitive to 'personal attacks' here, it's never really been tolerated on the wiki. The more 'colorful' you [WWW]leave your comments, the less likely they are to gather support for keeping their content. And you've been at least a wiki user since 08, so you know no matter how much you whine or argue, no one ever is able to solo win in a 'wiki edit war'. You're kinda shooting yourself in the foot dude. —EdWins

I really could care less about any of this, or any of you people's pseudo-intellectual rantings. No one attacked her and hopefully by the link being included, she will finally hear about the carnage she has inflicted...if anything, she "attacked" a driver, which is something I DO feel VERY strongly about. I'm not here to make any friends, just to share the truth about what goes on. -JL

2011-03-27 13:56:55   The nifty thing about the wiki is that even you are welcome here. —JasonAller

Like a Muslim in church... -JL

2011-03-27 15:03:04   Funny you should mention communism. The wiki, like all websites, is private property. You're suggesting that private property owners shouldn't be permitted to establish standards of conduct for people who are on their property. Against private property rights? Sounds pretty communist... —TomGarberson

2011-03-27 15:50:00   It's all good Josh. I know you don't have a habit of spreading lies or anything. As much as you enjoy wreaking havoc and hitting people's buttons with a 'shock factor', 'in your face' kind of style, you do mean well and are still a decent human being. I am staying out of the newest cab drama... seems to be quite a bit of it lately. —Wes-P

2011-03-27 21:48:57   I like boners when they're my own...but I don't want one coming at me in a dark alley. —BradBenedict

2011-03-28 18:39:06   Thanks for speaking your mind, Josh. I'm sorry for doubting you. If they ban you, I'm gonna quit the wiki. Fuck it. —ScottMeehleib

2011-03-29 16:02:33   What about your dedication to Stephen W. Hawking? —BruceHansen

Josh, I hope in the future you'll consider collaborative editing and being halfway civil with people. Personal attacks (insults, berating people, or trying to "get back" at people via the wiki) will dramatically change the tone of the wiki, turning it from an informational resource for Davis into a place where people who aren't accustomed to internet culture or don't have thick skins will be afraid or unwilling to participate. That will be a loss for everyone involved, because it'll be a loss for the wiki itself. Collaborative editing is what has made the wiki into the resource it is today. When there are disagreements over content, people explain why they think it should be one way or other other and either come up with a compromise or put it to a vote (democratic, not communist, for what it's worth). I know you get a kick out of stirring things up, but berating people who disagree with you or claiming you're being oppressed isn't a workable way of approaching things on the wiki. As entertaining as it may be, it's a destructive approach to something that's been built with a lot of constructive work by a lot of different people. I'm not quite sure why some people lost sight of that during this discussion and decided people like Arwennhold and myself were upset at you for being a pottymouth or whatever. That has nothing to do with it. I realize you'll probably ignore this, since you believe I'm just trying to somehow oppress you by explaining wiki norms (and you've apparently got Scott and Wes sold on the idea). It needed to be said, though, since for some reason most of the folks here, who've said it many times before when personal attacks or non-constructive disputes come up, aren't willing to say it this time around. —TomGarberson

2011-03-30 17:31:10   Are you as ancient as some might claim, Lawson? I took you for a college kid at first but Daubert makes it seem as though you are some sort of legendary geezer. —ScottMeehleib

I used to do lots of drugs and drink..I almost died. I decided to become the best person I could be..that involves'll learn some day, boy. -JL

2011-03-31 09:28:24   You can call me whacko, trying to get the facts straight. I heard you Josh, but it gets kind of crazy when you say that I "should" do something about [WWW]"reposts" that never happened. —BruceHansen

2011-04-17 11:54:01   Scott fell off a balcony and died this morning —StevenDaubert

2011-04-19 10:09:43   It's stuff like [WWW]this that makes it clear you want to drive people off the wiki. If you're trying to "bury the hatchet" why do you come back and troll her? —TomGarberson

2011-04-20 15:54:46   I'd be happy to grab a drink or some frozen yogurt sometime. I don't have a problem with you messing with people in general; I just have a problem with you (or anyone else) messing with people who, in a wiki editor sense, are relatively vulnerable. New editors, semi-new editors who got a rough start, that kind of thing. Feel free to be an asshole to me or the other established editors around here all you want. But taking swings at people who seem relatively likely to be driven off of the wiki isn't cool.

Are you coming to the BBQ on the 7th? —TomGarberson

Explain to me how limits on what kind of username someone can use on a website has an impact on First Amendment rights. —TomGarberson

I think it's really important to squash free speech, especially comments that are objectionable and don't suck up to the long standing wiki editors. As we all know, they are above and beyond any sort of judgment and can do no wrong. I also strongly support suppressing any swear words or concepts that have anything to do with real world controversy. Davis really is a G rated city, and we as editors have a duty to clean up the internet, and to flame war into submission any small business owner trying desperately to uphold his reputation. With your help, people, we really can turn America into the Christian version of Iran! Who needs any sort of neutrality when we can all work together for the "common good"...the ends justify the means, right? Think globally, suppress free speech and destroy the opposition locally.... I'm glad to be a part of this burgeoning collective movement, it shows a lot of to do away with that pesky First wiki editor at a time...California Uber Alles!!!! —JoshLawson

hey fuck you buddy, I consider myself a friend of yours and I'm on here Daubert

As for no like button check this out: Daubert Likes the fact that Lawlson is a slapdick on the wiki!

One DavisWiki Asshole to another, more vociferous one: Raise your chin and Grab some Beer, Bin Laden's Dead, Go Grab some BEER!!! — Wes-P

I would concur wholeheartedly with the previous statement Daubert

Hey guy I know you are in the bar scene and all I wanted to run something by you:

call it 4 months ago I happened to be downtown picking up some drunkies whom I hadn't seen in a while. It was like 2:05 AM and I had agreed to meet them on the corner of G and 3rd. I'm standing on the South East corner of the intersection back to Ketmo when bouncer dude tries to Bro up on me. He rolls up on me trying to flex and look intimidating and says "YOU NEED TO LEAVE, NOW" I looked at him like he was crazy and said I have nothing to do with your establishment and I'm a private citizen on public property and you are a private citizen you don't tell me what to do. Dude tries to tell me it's immaterial and that I need to bounce. At this point I'm committed to my stance cause fuck that you can kick rocks, want me to flag down the officer I see down the street and see who is right? I honestly don't care that I'm in front (off to the side standing on the traffic calming planter) of your bar that is closing, I'm minding my own business and I haven't patronized your establishment. You can do what you want inside your place of business, but I'm not in it... If dude was polite it would have been no problem I would have dipped but he tried to flex on me and gave me a direct order... You aren't a cop I don't have to obey your direct lawful orders. I'm not trespassing I'm on public property... I understand the need to flush the people out of the bar, and then get them to stop congregating in front of it, but I'm no punk and if you come at me tripping you can sod off

Who is right?

Well you certainly weren't exaggerating or being dramatic in your comment on Travis' page Lawlson. Additionally I just saw a pink elephant outside my window. —oy

What do you mean "you made it so it can't be reverted"? It sounds like you're saying he did some kind of technical trick. You do realize Tom has the same capabilities on the wiki as you... and neither of you can do that? Incidentally, it was Tom who did the edit you're complaining about, not a cabal of "you guys". A grammatically implied plurality of opposition does not make you a victim worthy of politically correct pandering. Please stand by and be responsible for your own actions, and please give Tom the same respect and have him stand by and be responsible for his actions. -jw

Please don't berate people on the Wiki, Josh. —TomGarberson (who didn't make it impossible to revert anything)
