User talk:Gtroy

Hi, please feel free to talk to me, I am open to all mature and relevant dialogue. But due to the unfortunate lack of class some users have at this project I do sincerely and seriously ask that you not be bitchy or insulting, it never works as a tactic when used against anyone. Please do not waste your fingertips with annoying, incendiary, threatening, or insulting rhetoric. I will ignore it until you remove it, or else I will. I reserve the right to treat irrelevant comments in a similar manner. This is just a wiki so don't take yourself so seriously, be nice, and professional, or your eternal best bet with me and anyone else is to be friendly. Lastly please note that by making any comments on my talk page you admit that I am so fly like a G6 and if pettily bickering with me that you are wrong and your mommy didn't hug you enough as a child.

Hi there. As far as I can tell, crepitous is an adjective. See for example The Lancet.

Here is our standard welcome. SemperBlotto 18:40, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

p.s. And I recommend slowing down. You are making too many format errors. Get things right before proceeding. SemperBlotto 18:44, 8 September 2011 (UTC)


Hello, welcome to Wiktionary, and thank you for your contributions so far.

If you are unfamiliar with wiki editing, take a look at Help:How to edit a page. It is a concise list of technical guidelines to the wiki format we use here: how to, for example, make text boldfaced or create hyperlinks. Feel free to practice in the sandbox. If you would like a slower introduction we have a short tutorial.

These links may help you familiarize yourself with Wiktionary:

  • Entry layout (EL) is a detailed policy documenting how Wiktionary pages should be formatted. All entries should conform to this standard. The easiest way to start off is to copy the contents of an existing page for a similar word, and then adapt it to fit the entry you are creating.
  • Our Criteria for inclusion (CFI) define exactly which words can be added to Wiktionary, though it may be a bit technical and longwinded. The most important part is that Wiktionary only accepts words that have been in somewhat widespread use over the course of at least a year, and citations that demonstrate usage can be asked for when there is doubt.
  • If you already have some experience with editing our sister project Wikipedia, then you may find our guide for Wikipedia users useful.
  • The FAQ aims to answer most of your remaining questions, and there are several help pages that you can browse for more information.
  • A glossary of our technical jargon, and some hints for dealing with the more common communication issues.
  • If you have anything to ask about or suggest, we have several discussion rooms. Feel free to ask any other editors in person if you have any problems or question, by posting a message on their talk page.

You are encouraged to add a BabelBox to your userpage. This shows which languages you know, so other editors know which languages you'll be working on, and what they can ask you for help with.

I hope you enjoy editing here and being a Wiktionarian! If you have any questions, bring them to the Wiktionary:Information desk, or ask me on my talk page. If you do so, please sign your posts with four tildes: ~~~~ which automatically produces your username and the current date and time.

Again, welcome!


The term neckbrace is not only used in a context of medicine. It's used by laymen in a lay context, as in, for example, "She nudged closer to Peter to make room for a pale one-armed man, his neck in a pink neckbrace" [1], which is from a general-interest novel, not a medical text. See also [[WT:ELE#Context labels]] ("A context label identifies a definition which only applies in a restricted context. Such labels indicate, for example, that the following definition occurs in a limited geographic region or temporal period, or is used only by specialists in a particular field and not by the general population. Many context label templates also place an entry into a relevant category, but they must not be used merely for categorization", which was deliberately voted in to exclude the use of specific context labels for general-context definitions). Please undo your edit to the entry [[neckbrace]], and fix any others you may have similarly erred on. Thanks!—msh210℠ on a public computer 03:16, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Do you even read your talk page any more? I see you ignored this section and the preceding (at least).​—msh210 (talk) 20:39, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
No I don't. I am not even writing this right now. It's just LEDs on your computer screen. Which is off right now. You should be scared and remember to dial 5 after calling 9-1-1 for the psychological emergencie you are having right now. Why, because the drugs your on care, that's why. =)Gtroy 02:36, 23 September 2011 (UTC)


I'm sorry to see that conversations have been removed. Is there any point in replying here? Dbfirs 12:24, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I've just seen that the conversation was genuinely archived, rather than just being deleted, so I've replied there. Dbfirs 12:32, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Both are standardized. The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons whom develops terminology and standards for emergency medicine uses those as the standardized terms. The procedures themselves change every year and are tweaked but the terminology hardly ever is, and when it is it is usually just a slight semantical or tense adjustment.Gtroy 20:56, 22 September 2011 (UTC)


Shouldn’t that be mottled? —Stephen (Talk) 13:56, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

I have no idea what's going on.Gtroy 20:25, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
It’s just that you created an entry for motted, but nobody seems to know that word. The definition appears to be appropriate for mottled. I thought you might have made a typo. Is motted a real word? Anyway, please check it out. —Stephen (Talk) 04:34, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
maybe i fucked up not sure got blocked for removing dick's habitual butting into my talk page by dick., so fuck it. i'm outta here. this place sucks.Gtroy 06:23, 27 September 2011 (UTC)


will someone please unblock me, Dick has blocked me from e-mailing anyone here, and not only did he block me for no good reason except that he doesn't like me, but he clandestinely left me permanently blocked from editing or e-mailing other users even after the 24 hours were over.Gtroy 00:25, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

You were blocked for a good reason. Until you start to calm down and stop your aggressive behaviour, you are not welcome here. JamesjiaoTC 00:51, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
What aggressive behavior is that? The blocker just called me a bitch. All I did was remove one of his harassing comments, not unlike this one. Numerous editors have told him to back off. I am perfectly calm, this guy just keeps pushing my buttons and following me around on here. How is that acceptable to you at all?Gtroy 02:10, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I'd usually sit down and think about it when multiple people start saying the same things about me. Just a clue. JamesjiaoTC 02:16, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Also I was blocked on 26 September 2011 it is now 28 September 2011 and I am still blocked, that is both longer than 1 day and longer than 24 hours.Gtroy 02:11, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Two is barely multiple if you ask me. And you have yet to state what aggressive behavior you are talking about. And what I did wrong. Are you willfully ignoring the fact that that this user keeps using actually aggressive language such as "bitch" toward me? Why the double standard?Gtroy 04:27, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm not the only person who told you not to remove comments from talk pages - yours or any - and you are still doing it, even though your block for doing it just ended.
If explaining what a user means because you don't understand that you might have misspelled something is "harassing" you, then Jesus, I shudder to think what you would do if I sneezed in your presence.
If you don't think your behavior has been at least as aggressive as mine, then your use of the phrase double standard makes you my favorite source of ironic amusement in months.
Cue the removal of this comment, and the inevitable result thereof. — [Ric Laurent] — 11:38, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
I only remove your derogatory comments. The problem is that you answered for someone else, as usually butting in. I do simply ask that you cease and desist in communicating with me. If you continue to harass me I will just file a no-contact civil restraining order.Gtroy 16:47, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
No, you've removed some pretty benign comments. Stephen has more important things to do than explain your mistakes or potential mistakes to you in minute detail. I was trying to help him by "butting in". It's an open community, if you want zero chance of any given person butting in, you're going to have problems... especially until you learn to edit well AND get along with the community at large. You need to be monitored, and I'm dedicating myself to monitoring you. I do try to be polite to you at the onset, and then you delete my comments are get mad that I'm talking to you, so maybe the next time I make a simple harmless statement you should try to not think of it as harassment and just like... listen. — [Ric Laurent] — 17:35, 28 September 2011 (UTC)
Stop contacting me. I will get a restraining order. There is nothing polite about insulting me. "dedicating yourself to monitoring me" is stalking. Stop contacting me.Gtroy 17:40, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Missing language, missing definition line, crazy formatting. I haven't got the time. SemperBlotto 21:33, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

What else did you have planned? Equinox 21:35, 8 September 2011 (UTC)
A half-hours read in bed, then a good night's sleep! SemperBlotto 07:18, 9 September 2011 (UTC)
