Members of Uncyclopedia. I'm Mr. Winkler and I'm taking action against a particular article called Mr winkler is GAY. The reasons stated is because this is obviously an attack by me posted by one of my students, lets just be lucky he didn't leave an address and phone number for people to use otherwise I'd be in big trouble. The student responsible is currently being punished and sent to detention as we speak. Another thing, the spelling and grammer is horrendous. I may be an english teacher but that has got to be the worst writing I have found on the Internet. I'm talking with the IT Guys to get this site blocked from our school network so our students will not be harmed by this filth again. But as a personal request, If the article isn't taken down within 30 days then I'm going to have to talk to the legal team of the organization that hosts your website. Thank You. --Mr. Winkler 20:54, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Are you SERIOUS? Just like...WTF? And we're not all gentlemen, I'll have you know. I happen to be a girl- A PRETTY GIRL! And I'd love to have the article taken down if you really are Mr. Winkler, but number one: I'm not so sure of that (not that I'm calling you a liar) and number two, I don't really have the authority. So, uh...sit tight? Kitty!Heck no techno | chitchat | stuff.. Argh
I don't believe you. You must prove your Winklarity to me through a series of tests. These will not be simple tasks, and you may not survive. If you have a feint heart, accept this not. However, upon completing these challenges, "Winkler" your rewards will be great, and the peasants shall sing your tale for a hundred years. What say you? - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 21:33, Dec 20
If I have to pass some test to prove that I'm Mr. Winkler, then bring on the tests. --Mr. Winkler 21:56, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

I don't believe you either. Your prose has mistakes uncharacteristic of an English teacher. I count at least five errors. Sir Groovester | Contributions | Talk Page 21:51, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Someone do a backcheck, if possible, with his IP and the IP of LotsOfLOLs. Afterward, I'd like to say that, like YTMND with Lee Kaplan and Scientology, I don't think you have much ground to do anything. ~ Tophatsig 20/12/2007 @ 21:40
I doubt this user is a LotofLOLS sock, while his spelling/grammar does have several errors, espacailly for an English Teacher, his spelling isn't atrocious like LotofLOLS, though who knows. To good to be true, you are most defintley not Mr. Winkler --Æ 22:10, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
No, I'm saying to backcheck it with LotsofLOLs because, if he is stationed near LotsofLOLs, there's a fair possibility that it is, in fact, Mr. Winkler, and not some random bumblefuck. ~ Tophatsig 20/12/2007 @ 22:36
That might a good idea, though I'm nearly certain this is an impersonator, I mean, look at his grammatical errors that normal English Teachers wouldn't have. --Æ 22:38, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
...or, if he's stationed near LotofLOLS, he could also be... LotofLOLS.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:44 Dec 20, 2007
If LotofLOLs used school computers to edit Uncyclopedia and so did Mr. Winkler, it would show the same IP or an IP in the same location, aka City, State, Country. Now if Mr. Winkler's IP is in a different City but the same State and Country, it could possible be him. If it is a different state and/or a different country, then someone is pretending to be Mr. Winkler, since Mr. Winkler is the English teacher of LotofLOLs he should at least live in the same state as LotofLOLs or a border state to LotsofLOLs if he commutes to work across a state line. The only way to know for sure, is if Mr. Winkler emails an Administrator here, and gives his phone number at the school and the Admin also talks to the Principal about the article as well to verify that the school wants it deleted. It should be a phone number published for that school that can be verified to be a school number. It shouldn't be that hard to do. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 23:27, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
I say hit the banstick. Mr. Winkler can still send an email to an admin verifying he is Mr. Winkler. As Orion said, it's not that hard to provide verification. --Æ 23:31, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Greetings Mr. Winkler, for an English teacher you sure have some bad grammar and happen to write like a 5th grader. Ordinarily we would have deleted the article, but it turned out to be funny to most people who read it. In fact, I doubt anyone who reads it would take it seriously. We had a few vote for deletion entries on it, but most people voted to keep it. In order to prove libel, you first have to show that the words are not part of some parody or comedy and were meant to be serious instead and showed malice. You are a teacher in a school and are a public figure in your community. Being as this is a joke Encyclopedia, it will be very hard to prove that the article written on you was meant to be taken seriously. I used to work with lawyers so I know these things. Please reference Hustler Magazine v. Falwell for more information, as I am certain it will be used as a defense in any libel suit you try to claim. After you prove that it was to be taken seriously, you have to show how much damage was done, in a dollar amount. You have to prove all of that, and more, to a judge and jury. I am just letting you know how things will possibly end up should you decide to file a libel suit. But if you can get a lawyer to write a letter to Wikia, the company that hosts Uncyclopedia, I am sure that they can work out some agreement to remove the article after you prove who you are and why you want the article removed. --Lt. Sir Orion Blastar (talk) 23:16, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

This guy's supposed to be an English teacher?

Members of Uncyclopedia.[1] I'm Mr. Winkler and I'm taking action against a particular article called Mr winkler is GAY. The reasons[2] stated is because this is obviously an attack by[3] me posted by one of my students, lets[4] just be lucky he didn't leave an address and phone number for people to use otherwise I'd be in big trouble[5]. The student responsible is currently being punished and sent to detention as we speak[6]. Another thing, the spelling and grammer[7] is[8] horrendous. I may be an english[9] teacher[10] but that has got to be the worst writing I have found on the Internet. I'm talking with the IT Guys[11] to get this site blocked from our school network so our students will not be harmed by this filth again. But as a personal request, If[12] the article isn't taken down within 30 days[13] then I'm going to have to talk to the legal team of the organization that hosts your website. Thank You.

  1. Should be a comma.
  2. Plural?
  3. Did you mean on?
  4. Apostrophes anyone?
  5. "big trouble"? OH NOES!
  6. "currently" and "as we speak" are redundant.
  7. HA
  8. are
  9. Capitalization?
  10. Where's the comma, bub?
  11. "IT Guys"? He's trying to be formal here and he calls them the "IT Guys"?
  12. Not a new sentence, bub!
  13. ...comma?

Yeah... right...  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 22:42 Dec 20, 2007

I agree. --Æ 22:44, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
There's also an error in the title. There should be an "and" between the comma and "I". Sig_pic.PNG Unsolicited conversation Extravagant beauty PEEING 22:54, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
LedBalloon, we want to see if he's gay or not. BRING ON THE TESTS!!! --NXWave 22:57, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Here are the tests--Æ 23:01, 20 December 2007 (UTC)
Wait a second. You are not TheLedBalloon. And the test is rediciously easy. --NXWave 23:17, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

I love the line, "I'm talking with the IT Guys to get this site blocked from our school network so our students will not be harmed by this filth again." Excuse me if I'm wrong, but your (supposed) students WROTE the filth! Is that like self harm? Also, somebody checkuser that guy. Also, Mr Winkler is gay. I read it on the internet. Spang talk 23:22, 20 Dec 2007

Yah, ban him while you're at it--Æ 23:26, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Just to let you know. I sent a email to your legal team, expect a response from them. --Mr. Winkler 23:49, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Did you run it through a grammar checker, at least?  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 23:49 Dec 20, 2007
In other words, expect an email from Angela, the co-founder of Wikia. --NXWave 23:57, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

Just to let you know.[1] I sent a[2] email to your legal team, expect a response from them.

  1. Fragment, not a sentance. Comma please.
  2. Wrong article, it's preceding a vowel.

You seriously need to work on that. I'd hate to be your student. ~Minitrue Sir SysRq! Talk! Sex! =/ GUNWotMRotMAotMVFHSKPEEINGHPBFF  00:04, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Seriously, Mr. Winkler, you're so phony. Even I of all the people on this earth, can spot grammatical errors in those sentences. Not only I can't imagine you teaching English with such poor grammar, I think you need to repeat 5th grade English, Mr. Winkler impersonator--Æ 01:23, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

Hi Mr. Winkler!

I never thought you were gay. I never even liked Mr winkler is GAY. I hope you never Get Some Sick. ~Minitrue Sir SysRq! Talk! Sex! =/ GUNWotMRotMAotMVFHSKPEEINGHPBFF  23:03, 20 December 2007 (UTC)

There is no such man by the name of Mr. Winkler.

He was a product of the Matrix. --General Insineratehymn 00:05, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

ITT: We find out who the REAL Mr. Winkler is!

Obviously, I'm the real Mr. Winkler. --Littleboyonly TKFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK Oldmanonly 01:40, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

No, I'm Mr. Winkler!

TESTS OF WINKLARITY

Mr Winkler must agree to the tests, and state that he does below. Then, he shall begin his challenges. - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 02:26, Dec 21

If he does, that'll be more than enough proof that he's not Winkler. ~Minitrue Sir SysRq! Talk! Sex! =/ GUNWotMRotMAotMVFHSKPEEINGHPBFF (@ 02:33 21 Dec, 2007)
LIES! Only the true Winkler is man enough to agree to my tests! Are you brave enough, Winkler, or will you cower in fear?!?!? - P.M., WotM, & GUN, Sir Led Balloon Baloon(Tick Tock) (Contribs) 02:34, Dec 21
As Mr. Winkler said.

Cquote2
Simple as that. He agrees to take on your tests. --NXWave 13:04, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

This is obviously fake

Apart from the grammar mistakes lets look at some other evidence:

  • "I have a request for you gentlemen"
    • No one talks like this - unless they are trying to impersonate an adult.
  • "The reasons stated"
    • Even were it grammatically correct, no one says "The reason stated is..." Since he is stating it, it would look wrong to anyone but a schoolkid trying to fake legalistic language.
  • "lets just be lucky"
    • Again, this is not a common phrase/idiom. Let's just count ourselves lucky, perhaps. Or, we are lucky. Note also, the lets means let us meaning the poster is including himself as part of those who are lucky. Mr. Winkler would not do that.
  • "he didn't leave an address and phone number for people to use otherwise I'd be in big trouble."
    • An obvious slip: why would Mr. Winkler be in trouble? Surely lotoflols would be in trouble.
  • "I may be an English teacher but that has got to be the worst writing I have found on the Internet."
    • A non-sequitur: why would being and English teacher make you any more or less likely to encounter bad grammar on the internet?
  • "so our students will not be harmed by this filth again."
    • Again, it smacks of impersonation. No adult would go so far as to refer to the site as filth, especially since Winkler probably wouldn't look around the site at all.
  • "But as a personal request, If the article isn't taken down within 30 days"
    • It starts as a request and then it becomes a threat. An English teacher would not make such an error.
  • "If I have to pass some test to prove that I'm Mr. Winkler, then bring on the tests."
    • A real teacher does not agree to such things.
  • "Just to let you know. I sent a email to your legal team, expect a response from them."
    • Our legal team? Wikia's surely. If this had happened then Winkler would not make the mistake.

This is obviously lotoflols doing his best English, trying to sound adult. -- cut-rate Ape (complement) (Riot Porn) 20:12, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

This isn't. His spelling is slightly good. LotofLOLS tried this in a newer forum topic, IP has already been comfirmed to LotofLOLS, And he ment the personal information of Mr. Winkler, you know his address and email, and he wants to prove that it is him.
Knowing Mr. Winkler by know, He's already emailed Angela and knowing by know. Angela is currently to the Uncyclopedia Community Manager. "no joke" --NXWave 20:27, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
Well, the "big trouble" thing might not mean "I will get fired or punished by a higher authority". I myself might say it, if some hooligan posted my address and/or phone number online. "big trouble" is kind of common...at least it is to me.

And about real teachers not agreeing to do any tests, that's kind of a generalization. I dunno, I hate to deviate from the norm here, especially since this is all mighty fishy, but I don't want you guys to get sued just because of The Sockpuppet Who Cried GAY GAY GAY GAY!!1! Kitty!Heck no techno | chitchat | stuff.. Argh

Right, THAT's EFFING IT!

Right. Simple, just checkuser this little bugger, if it dosen't match LOTSofLOLS' IP, then we'll let him live. If not, ban him, ban the socks, INFINIBAN THE EFFING LOTSOFLOLS.

</VERY ANGRY General.> --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 20:21, 21 December 2007 (UTC)

LotofLOLS = infinibanned a long time ago. Also, who cares what IP it is? It clearly ain't "Mr. Winkler," infiniban the dude too, once, of course, we're done teasing him.  Sir Skullthumper, MD (criticize  writings  SU&W) 20:26 Dec 21, 2007
We don't need a checkuser as we know this person is an impersonator. THE END . Lock all Winkler related forum topics and do a range block on LotofLOLS's IP--Æ 21:04, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
...so I'm late? <Very stupid general> --Lt. High Gen. Grue The Few The Proud, The Marines 22:09, 21 December 2007 (UTC)
