Wiki's getting hit pretty hard by the trolls this week... 19:02, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

What's with all the vandalism? I know this is the internet, and therefore some vandalism is expected, but YIKES!!! What happened this week? Edit: I don't know who put my message loads, but it wasn't me.SqueakSquawk4 (talk) 19:16, 1 June 2022 (UTC)
AGREed. waht is the lore behind these schizophrenics and doug walker! holy fuck -- 20:07, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

Fixed it. That was annoying 22:15, 1 June 2022 (UTC)

Another spammer appears to be adding comments about their anatomy and disparaging the reader's mother in the explanation of the title text. It has been added and removed at least twice now (once by me), around 22:35. Keep an eye out for small, annoying trolls like this one, as the spammers may have realized that bombarding the pages with massive images is not the cleanest way to ensure they get their (infantile) message across.

There has also been someone who has seen a dislike to Davidy and me... For instance he has created some very long user names... Must have taken him some time :-D --Kynde (talk) 14:55, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
Ooh, he doesn't like you, LOL! Wow. NiceGuy1 (talk) 05:45, 5 June 2022 (UTC)

At least the most obnoxious one seems to be gone (or at least on hiatus). 03:18, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

Randall apparently thinks NPR is the only radio network. It's the only radio I listen too as well. Barmar (talk) 13:34, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

Electron Stethoscope would be a cool name for an EIT chest imaging device. 14:28, 2 June 2022 (UTC) -- it uses impedance, which relates to electrons. There is likely something even more analogous for a radio stethescope (near-field coherent sensing equipment uses radio frequencies: ). I'm quite surprised that Randall interprets "radio" as meaning "audio broadcast" rather than "electromagnetic" so much here. Maybe he hasn't been doing much EM stuff. 23:46, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

When I first saw the comic title I thought it was going to be about variable scopes in programming. But maybe that would have been too esoteric. Barmar (talk) 15:41, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

I'm thinking there's just so much imagination material already with regard to measurement scopes. Variable scoping is definitely within the content of the webcomic, as far as I know. 23:46, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

I was expecting something about sniper scopes (or rifle scopes). Electron sniper scope looks like a thing from Terminator movie. 21:10, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

Hey, just what you see, pal... 23:05, 2 June 2022 (UTC)
Hello, deadly friend. 23:46, 2 June 2022 (UTC)

Maybe add what the constructed scope is in each cell of the table? e.g. the cell for the radio kaleidoscope would have "radio kaleidoscope:" at the beginning? 18:00, 3 June 2022 (UTC)Bumpf
