Conservapedia:Andy Schlafly on Eagle Forum Live/segment 4

Wigocp.svg This Conservapedia-space article is of largely historical interest, and not necessarily the focus of RationalWiki today.
Conservapedia was a major focal point in the early history of RationalWiki, but long ago ceased coming up with new ways to appall and amuse.
Our energies of late are spent debunking other, fresher examples of religious fundamentalism and creationist claims.
For RationalWiki's less ancient content, try the cover story articles or a random article in main-space.

Segment 4 - Previous - Next

Andy on the radio 20090103-04.ogg

Caller: Don Dean, Conservapedia administrator.

Transcription: Phyllis in normal text. Andy in bold text. Announcer in italics. Caller in green.


Let's see what Don, er, let's see what Dean has in mind here from Spokane, Washington, KUDY.

Hello Dean, welcome to the program.

Well thank you, Phyllis. Andy, I've spoken to you in person before. I'm one of your administrators on the site. And I'm the one that puts a lot of the news content on the main page. This morning I added a new article called "Girls Need a Dad and Boys Need a Mom" and another one on "Is Religion Necessary?" I got those from American Thinker, which is one of my popular sites that I use. I contribute quite regularly to Conservapedia and I do agree with Andy that it's a very good resource on the internet and I'm happy to contribute to it.

Well thank you so much Dean. You've been a valuable administrator. We have about a dozen or so top flight conservative administrators and Dean is one of 'em.

What do you do, Andy, if someone tries to post something that's really obnoxious?

We revert it almost immediately. And if it's an example of somebody who cannot be rehabilitated, who has just got a very bad attitude or [is] vandalizing the site, we block them, immediately. And I must say that's a bit of mental exercise that is an empowering feeling to escort people out and kick them off the site.

[Phyllis cackles]

What?!

Even for teenagers. It's a valuable experience for them to see that there are bad guys out there and that teenagers have blocking powers and they can exclude people too. And that's valuable for them to learn that there are deceitful people out there that need to be blocked and excluded.
