Wikilink piping

Hello Geopolitician, thanks for your edits. Please see this edit -- I have made several others like it. You have been unnecessarily piping internal links, and it is good practice to use as little code as necessary when adding internal links. Thanks. --1990'sguy (talk) 17:44, 17 August 2018 (EDT)

Thank you, 1990sguy. I always thought that using only brackets would cause them to show up in the WikiText. It always pays to check instead of making assumptions! :) --Geopolitician (talk) 12:27, 18 August 2018 (EDT)
Just so you know, the wiki software assumed you want links when you use bracket pairs. The only ways I know of to get it to show brackets are to either use them unpaired (just on direction, like this [ but not the other) or to enclose it in <nowiki> tags, like this: <nowiki>[bracketed text]</nowiki>. (Personally, I would prefer if you didn't use them unpaired either, since it drives my bot crazy.) Anyway, don't hesitate to ask if there is anything else you ever wonder about! --David B (TALK) 15:50, 18 August 2018 (EDT)

Accidental block

For the record, that Minuteman block was an accidental block bot that was probably triggered by some algorithm. It has nothing to do with any conduct on your part. --1990'sguy (talk) 11:19, 13 September 2019 (EDT)

I found out about the block after it got lifted, and I already knew it was a bot before you commented here, so no worries. Thank you.--Geopolitician (talk) 13:08, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
Sorry about that...it didn't like the tone of your language, and particularly your use of the "c-word." It shouldn't give you any more trouble. --DavidB4 (TALK) 13:12, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
That's okay, and thank you. I've dealt with less tolerant bots on other sites in the past. A few minutes ago, I posted on Disqus and the comment was automatically blocked because it contained the word "kill." It wasn't even used in a literal context. It was used in a symbolic context, such as "gun control will kill the Republic."--Geopolitician (talk) 21:34, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
For the record, I didn't see that DavidB4 lifted your block, so I thought you had to sit through the whole 1 hour 30-minute block. --1990'sguy (talk) 13:24, 13 September 2019 (EDT)
I was only blocked for about ten minutes, and I wasn't even online when it happened. No worries. --Geopolitician (talk) 21:34, 13 September 2019 (EDT)

Finding bigger fish to fry

Hi Geopolitician, given your strong stance against neoconservatives in general, do you want to work on some CP pages like the ones for Colin Powell, Paul Wolfowitz, and likewise similar articles? Some of those types of pages might need updates, and I think it's not worth the bother to put a strongly negative label on certain current political figures. —LiberaltearsMay Dataclarifier be well! 18:14, 17 June 2020 (EDT)

Sure. I’ll try to focus some more on other articles that need updating. I’ll probably create a few new ones too, to go deeper into the implications of the ideology. It’ll be over a period of time, though. I’m not nearly as active as I used to be, and I don’t expect to be for a while. Too many things going on in my personal life right now, to say the least. --Geopolitician (talk) 18:53, 17 June 2020 (EDT)
Good. I got some stuff just yesterday about Colin Powell, how he lead Marines into L.A. to quash riots in 1992, and now more recently criticizing Trump for thinking about doing it. In 1992, it was just one city, today its mayors and governors across the nation encouraging riots. RobSTrump 2Q2Q 19:15, 17 June 2020 (EDT)
Awesome! By the way Geopolitician, here's a list of the officials in the Bush administration, where there are quite a few red links. —LiberaltearsMay Dataclarifier be well! 19:24, 17 June 2020 (EDT)
Also, have you guys ever seen the "official" music video regarding the "Bush Crime Family"? Because the f-word is used in there, I'd prefer not to directly link the video, but it's on Roger Stone's YouTube channel. —LiberaltearsMay Dataclarifier be well! 19:31, 17 June 2020 (EDT)

Cruz is not a neocon

His foreign policy has been described as in between Mccain and Paul. So he is not a necon. He even supported Trump's withdrawal from Syria. He also condemned Biden for Syria strikes. Are you sure you aren't thinking of Lindsey Graham? Graham is a total neo-con. Graham Praised Biden for Syria Strikes.ChadUser (talk) 23:17, 16 May 2021 (EDT)

That edit was not an accident. Cruz used to be a non-interventionist, but after he ran for President, he changed. His close ties to Steve Bannon (who I also consider to be a closet neocon) are especially damning. And to think, I used to defend this guy on this site!
But either way, I once again apologize for the harsh description of one of my Pompeo edits. I still feel bad about it.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:00, 17 May 2021 (EDT)
That non-interventionist support from Cruz has come from 2019 to present. So he is not a neocon.ChadUser (talk) 11:09, 26 May 2021 (EDT)
Mike Lee is the one who has shifted to non-interventionism since 2019. Cruz has shifted in the opposite direction. He supported the Saudi arms deal and supported Pompeo's efforts to start a war with Iran, while Lee (and Rand Paul) did not. I also can't help but wonder if he played was involved in Bannon's efforts to install warmongers in the Trump administration, due to their close ties.--Geopolitician (talk) 12:31, 26 May 2021 (EDT)
