For reasons expounded here, I have given Black Hat my own name. "Mac" for Machiavell, a character who delights in playing the system, often to the detriment, intentional or otherwise, of others. In Mac's case, he plays the system to cause detriment. In a similar vein, Danish is "Sadie" for sadist, the literal, as opposed to literary, version of a Machiavell, and who more often causes others pain. I'm not saying these should be their names, and I will still refer them to as "Black Hat" and "Danish" on site, but I am putting my view out there. Anonymous 07:36, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

Can someone please upgrade this Wikipedia entry for the likes of us dyscalculics: so that I can look cool on "Hurricane forums"?

Surprised nobody thought to explain 'caltrop'. Sure, you can go and look it up for yourself, but doesn't that also apply to just about everything else that is 'explained' here, too? Anyway, in my experience, it's one of those words a substantial majority of folk don't know, having never heard it at all, or having not bothered to look it up. Do I just move in ignorant circles? 11:37, 5 May 2017 (UTC)

You must not be a Dungeons & Dragons[1] player or at the least watched the original A-Team [2] on TV as both in the early days Caltrops were required equipment. 11:49, 28 July 2017 (UTC)

Or not playing D&D in the original language/watching A-Team in it. Remember, that "a substantial majority of folk" is not speaking English as first language. --Lupo (talk) 10:52, 19 July 2019 (UTC)

This explanation should probably explain what the three incidents mentioned in the title text are. --Flicky (talk) 15:22, 11 May 2019 (UTC)
