<Alpha_Quadrant>	I am thinking about starting or requesting the start of a 
WikiProject Anti-Backlogs. Where would I do that?
<killiondude>	Wikipedia is a perpetual backlog.
<Alpha_Quadrant>	not if there is wikiproject whose goal is to eliminate them
<Fleetflame>	should we add that to the backlog of proposed wikiprojects?
<Alpha_Quadrant>	no x_x
<Alpha_Quadrant>	because that would be ironic
<topaz>	ironic would be a Wikiproject to abolish Wikiprojects.

<Ottava> "North American Indians often used burning as a form of execution, either against members
         of other tribes or against white settlers during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
         Roasting over a slow fire was a customary method.[7]"
<Ottava> I guess that doesn't really help Cimon's case.
<cimon> Ottava: actually the fact that there were established protocols to deal with how precisely
        the burning was to be executed (a bag of black powder under your chin, if you were a sincere
        heretic, rather than a trolling heretic), tells me there were quite a few.
<Ottava> There were established protocols to deal with ghost attacks.
<Ottava> Doesn't mean they were used regularly.
<cimon> Actually, I think it does.
<Ottava> No
<cimon> Yes
<Ottava> They wrote on things that were rare.
<Ottava> Commonality is denoted by historical records, not by regulations.

    comment: Added new request
<Shanel> So can anyone see that dudes name
* Pathoschild can. :O
* hoo can't
<Shanel> I send you to investigate.
<mikelifeguard> laze-fail :D
<mikelifeguard> never admit to being unicode-compliant!
<Pathoschild> Hmph.
<Shanel> lol

* (long discussion about a recent desysopping.)
<Pathoschild> Neither is it a desysop'able offense to find editing
    irresistable. ;)
<Pathoschild> ...except, apparently, it is.
<Shanel> I'm sure you'll prepare an impassioned speech on looking past our
    differences and working together to build a perfect encyclopedia.
<Pathoschild> {{done}}
<Pathoschild> I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the
    difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream
    deeply rooted in the Wiki dream. I have a dream that one day this wiki will
    rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "The free encyclopedia
    that anyone can edit". I have a dream that one day on the red hills of
    ArbCom the sons of former editors and the sons of former editor
    administrators will be able to sit down at the table of brotherhood.
<The_Thing> O_o
<Shanel> XD
<Pathoschild> I have a dream that one day even the wiki of English, a wiki
    sweltering with the heat of arguments, sweltering with the heat of
    bannings, will be transformed into an oasis of editing and lazing.
<Shanel> lol
<Pathoschild> I have a dream that my little children will one day edit on a
    wiki where they will not be judged by the minorness of their edits but by
    the content of their contributions.
<Pathoschild> I have a dream tonight.
* Shanel demands someone save this beautiful oratory for future generations. :'(
* Prodego assassinates Pathoschild
<Shanel> O_O
<Pathoschild> I have a dream that one day, down in Wikipedia, with its vicious
    trolls, with its arbcom having his lips dripping with the words of blocking
    and banning; one day right there in Wikipedia, little minor editors will be
    able to join hands with little self-blocking administrators as sisters and
    brothers.
* Pathoschild dies.
<Shanel> Continue your speech first.
<Pathoschild> o_o
<Pathoschild> Yes ma'am. :O
<Pathoschild> I have a dream today.
<Prodego> that's true, I'm not supposed to do that until after you finish
<Pathoschild> I have a dream that one day every article shall be exalted, every
    talk and Wikipedia page shall be made low, the contentious issues will be
    made plain, and the unresolved arguments will be made solved, and the
    consensus of the Community shall be revealed, and all monitors shall see it
    together.
* Shanel wails dramatically
<Pathoschild> And when this happens, when we allow editing to ring, when we let
    it ring from every talk page and every article, from every wiki and every
    wiki farm, we will be able to speed up that day when all of
    Jimbo (and Larry)'s children, minor editors and self-blocking admins,
    ArbComs and Cabalmen, Stewards and Trolls, will be able to join hands and
    sing in the words of the old Wiki spiritual, "Wiki way! wiki way! thank the
    Community Almight, it's the wiki way!"
* Pathoschild dies.
* Shanel arrests Prodego.
* Prodego confesses, escapes, is recaptured, and dies of hepatitis C.
<Shanel> Truly a Wiki ending.
