[edit] JPatt comes out for Trump

....because immigration. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 03:48, 12 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] "Obama and Liberal Media...

force Boy Scouts to cave to the homosexual agenda!" - Not on CP yet, but they're slack in actually doing things, check back later. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 21:01, 13 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] God Hates the Poor

For most bible commentators, Proverbs 14:20 is a warning about an unattractive human trait: The poor is disliked even by his neighbor; But the rich has many friends. But in Andy's Conservative Bible, it's a rule to live byimg. Yay, God. Whoover (talk) 18:20, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Is there any evidence that Andrew does any labour? I thought all he did was waffle, and waffle ineffectively at that. How's that proverb about taking the plank out of your own eye go? Sphincter (talk) 11:00, 18 July 2015 (UTC)
I thought it was generally accepted that he was on retainers for one or two wingnut welfare agencies. The ones that he presented his laughable court case against various things for recently. He also seems to apparently still home school. How it works as 'home schooling' when what parents actually do is send their children to an unqualified 'teacher' like andy is something I've always wondered about. And I suspect, but do not know for sure, that he is on a retainer from the eagle forum as legal council. Oldusgitus (talk) 11:50, 18 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] In which I read an article as Andy Schlafly would...

Give it up, evolutionists: Pluto has "a very young surface". Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 22:57, 15 July 2015 (UTC)

Where you been?img Whoover (talk) 23:20, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
Uncanny. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 23:33, 15 July 2015 (UTC)
As always, you have to admire the cognitive dissonance required to write this article (by Terry H) which states "creation scientists consider Pluto and Charon only seven thousand years old [...] These new photographs should vindicate his Hydroplate Theory further." and then also go on to say "The science team guesses these mountains must have formed 100 million years ago.". So now a surface age of 100 million is somehow evidence in support of a Pluto only 7000 years old. Uh...yeah. Worm (talk) 09:53, 16 July 2015 (UTC)
There is no cognitive disonance imo. Chuckie is an out and out liar and will distort and invent anything to try to make his idiotic points. Read the comments on this one and watch how he simply invents statements supposedly made by the person he is arguing with and when challenged to show where the comments had been made simply invents more bullshit. The guy is a dickhead of the highest order, one who thinks he posseses great rhetorical and intellectual skills but who in reality couldn't debate a dead pussy cat.

[edit] CNAV: Taking Down the Confederate Flag is Racist!

To deny the Confederate Battle Flag is to deny the blacks of this county their rightful place in the history of this country.img Say, what? He also claims that taking down the Confederate flag is the moral equivalent of razing the pyramids. You know, because the Egyptians had slaves. Whoover (talk) 21:31, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

Ugh, the pyramids weren't built by slaves, and the Confederate flag is not a symbol of the centuries of labor performed by slaves in the Americas. Is it just me, or do the wingnuts keep getting dumber? I mean, it used to be fun to argue with them. Now it's just predictable.--Umichcynic (talk) 21:40, 19 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] In which Terry once again

Displays his stunning grasp of science. According to terry the only way carbon monoxide forms is partial burning of wood or coal. Seriously, how on earth did this fool ever manage to get a medical qualification? Oldusgitus (talk) 13:34, 20 July 2015 (UTC)

Come on, NASA. You make all the scientific observations, and we'll make up explanations for the ones we can wedge into our narrative from armchairs in our dens. -- Ellipsoidal (talk) 14:41, 20 July 2015 (UTC)
Silly Terry. Coal is a by-product of the Flood. There was no coal to burn out in space...--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 00:57, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
God struck Pluto with a thunderbolt, which aggregated molecular carbon from the entire Kuiper belt into lumps of coal, split cometary water into hydrogen and oxygen, and thus provided the materials to make carbon monoxide. Bish bosh, job done. Cardinal Fang (talk) 09:23, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Hydroplate theory ... seems like a bit of a Rube Goldberg approach from a god who can (presumably) conjure up rain just as easily. Ruddager (talk) 13:25, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
That's creation science in a nutshell. How did God do it? It doesn't take a miracle. It takes the release of a "subcrustal ocean" with enough force to blast enough of the planet out to trans-Neptunian orbit (as far as the Oort Cloud) to form all the minor planets, their moons, the comets and a bunch of asteroids. And splash a bunch of water on our moon and other planets, too. That's science. Whoover (talk) 16:26, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
It's always interesting the contortions people will do in order to fit evidence to a conclusion they already accepted as true. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 16:44, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
I am always surprised that these people insist on trying to use science to explain their beliefs instead of just saying its all miracles. I am sure its some kind of blasphemy to reduce god to the mundane AMassiveGay (talk) 18:22, 21 July 2015 (UTC)
Exactly - why bother? Goddidit explains it sufficiently, but they're insistently disappearing up their own arses based on the term "fountains of the deep". Of course their explanation results in an event so violent it would sink the ark, so then they fall back on Goddidit to explain how that was protected, right? Sheesh. Ruddager (talk) 06:34, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Oh yeah, and of course Goddidit when it came to rupturing the hydroplates anyway, but the rest is science bro ... erm ... bretheren! Ruddager (talk) 06:38, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
I recall an old RE teacher of mine in Stockport who once tried to explain how a virgin birth could be a reality in humans. It basically consisted of him infering that joseph gave mary a damn good fingering after having met mr onan. The fact that this also breached his deities prohibitions against pre-marital fingering and onanism seemed to slip his notice. I was about 11 and it was at this time that I really began to fully understand that I was an atheist. Oldusgitus (talk) 13:08, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
I think they are doing it for other people as his fans seem to believe that anyways. Since saying that god used magical powers makes them sound like superstitious uneducated weirdo's that didn't realize the age of enlightment has been over for a few centuries. -EmeraldCityWanderer (talk) 13:40, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] A new Andy insight!!

The article formerly known as "Longest liberal hoaxes." Which is a handy collection of Andy's crazy toes. Piltdown Man (because that was totally a scheme dreamed up by the Global Evolutionist Army), global cooling (but strangely not global warming), population explosion (yeah, because adding 4 billion people in 30-odd years totally isn't an explosion.)

I look forward to more nuttiness being added to this list. PsyGremlin講話 14:56, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

Is "global cooling" conservative correctness for Global Warming?--Arisboch (talk) 14:59, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Sometimes it is, but it depends on the context. If you're trying to claim that global warming is a liberal hoax, you refer to the fringe scientific data from the '70s and '80s which suggested cooling (strangely you don't hear about all that data from the same period which said the opposite), and you use that as evidence of data tampering. However, when applied to the present day it's just as easy to claim cooling is a liberal hoax. The Daily Mail did a move when they reinterpreted some interesting scientific data on average global snow loss in mountain ranges to mean "the Himalayas didn't lose much snow, thus global warming isn't happening", using it later to back up claims that the world really must be getting colder and colder. Once left-leaning newspapers like The Guardian fell for it, the mail declared global cooling to be a hoax perpetuated by lefties; since Mail readers quickly forget articles that aren't intended to piss them off, they avoided flak.- Forerunner (talk) 16:36, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Daily Fail trolled The Guardian. Oh my, my Schadenfreude ist gerade über 9000 gestiegen und mein Scouter ist explodiert.--Arisboch (talk) 16:42, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Hmm... According to the table the so-called Hugo Chavez hoax has so far lasted 84 days. I can’t see any scripts running on the page so does Andy plan on manually updating it every day? Of course, he could have just put “since <date>”, but thinking ahead is for progressives. On the other hand, I don’t know why I even thought of this when the rest of the article is just another display of Andy brain dribble. JumboWhales (talk) 18:36, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
It lasted 84 days from when Chavez went into the hospital until his death. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 19:18, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
Ah, thanks. Still, I wonder if Andy's planning on popping into the page from time to time to update the other durations, such as for evolution. I’m not wondering too much and may just have my suspicions, if I’m honest. JumboWhales (talk) 20:06, 22 July 2015 (UTC)
I can't figure out why Andy didn't add "Castro has been dead since 2006," one of his favorites. Another, ahem, editor couldn't take it either and added it for him. But its omission in the original list was as perplexing as global warming's. Whoover (talk) 20:14, 22 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] CP-related cover articles could do with a polish-up

per RationalWiki:Saloon_bar#Coverstory_cull - I think both should stay gold brained, but to be fair there's a lot of ancient feature articles that are looking not so good by our heightened standards of the modern day. If the deeply-familiar could look over the CP ones, that'd be an excellent thing - David Gerard (talk) 12:37, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Is it even worth keeping CP as a cover story? The site really has zero reference outside RW any more, it's not even being quoted as a "look at what batshit conservatives are doing now!" example. PsyGremlin講話 10:15, 26 July 2015 (UTC)
Even on RW it makes up a very small percentage of recent content. I have not done the maths but saying that 1 in 100 posts relates to CP is being very generous. It is so predictable, if a mass shooting happens we all know what their response will be before it is posted, same for gay marriage etc. Ken's new articles are simply a cut/paste of his older content, and even he is less rabid than in the past. Andy pops up with the occasional insight we have all heard before and Karajou does nothing except ban people with snarky comments. Today it is little (nothing?) more than and extension of CNAV and Tea Party Crusaders. It's irrelevant and boring.--Mercian (talk) 12:15, 27 July 2015 (UTC)
CNaV? You mean those jokers?--Arisboch (talk) 12:17, 27 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] On What Planet?

Andy's "liberals hate Christians" leitmotif has a new expression in Underrated Sport Starsimg. One of the first three is baseball Hall-of-Famer Stan Musial. Andy's own justification for calling him underrated is "Seven batting titles, three championships, and overall statistics better than nearly everyone; ESPN called him one of the five best players of all-time, and Bill James ranked him as #7 all-time." How the hell is Stan Musial underrated? And Serena Williams? His paranoid delusions seem to be getting stronger. Whoover (talk) 05:46, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

He answers this in his own dribbling. Where he says "(notice how none are on the list of Greatest Conservative Sports Stars):" So because he and the other loons at cp haven't included them on their arbitrary list of the greatest conservative sports stars they are underrated. QED. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:03, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
I will give him Stan Musial, though he is consistently ranked as one of the best players ever by baseball historians, the casual fan does not appreciate how good he is, mostly because he played in St. Louis rather than New York or Boston. Tim Duncan and Serena Williams is pure lunacy though. Tim Duncan is almost universally ranked as the greatest power forward of all time, and Serena Williams is ranked in the top two or three female tennis players of all time. I wonder sometimes if this guy even follows sports or if his sports knowledge is derived from simply Googling "Christian sports stars". Snrub (talk) 14:34, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
To the extent that the casual fan knows anything about a player who retired over 50 years ago, he knows Stan the Man. ESPN's Hall of 100 has him just ahead of Mickey Mantle. Calling Musial "underrated," and pinning it on anti-Christian bigotry, is evidence of a disconnect from reality. Whoover (talk) 15:32, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

[edit] If you thought the CBP was bad...

It turns out that Andy isn't so sureimg about God being omniscient or omnibenevolent. No word on omnipotent at this point. To his credit, he does seem to recognize that an eternal Hell means that JHWH doesn't seem to have everyone's best interests at heart. That does rather simplify the Problem of Evil.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 07:50, 28 July 2015 (UTC)

Bad? The Conservative Bible Project is the greatest Not the Onion on the entire internet. And I have given you dental hygiene in all your cities, and lack of bread in all your places: but you didn't return to me, said the LORD.img ("The Bible forewarns that "free" healthcare will come with famines.") It just can't get any better. Whoover (talk) 15:36, 28 July 2015 (UTC)
Andy: "Several accounts in the Old Testament suggests that God did an investigation in order to learn the facts. All-knowing would be uninteresting, and my guess is that God has chosen not to be all-knowing. But he has the power to find out when He wants to." LMAO! First, I like the image of God doing an investigation. A tired God with a five o'clock shadow staring at papers scattered across his desk. Second, I heard something on NPR the other day about a new Broadway comedy, An Act of God. This comedy has God (played by Jim Parsons) saying pretty much what Andy said. Has he officially become indistinguishable from parody?--Night Jaguar (talk) 10:27, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
So, Andy's God isn't all powerful, isn't everywhere at once, doesn't know everything and doesn't love everybody. At least it's compatible with the God he's described all these years, who usually only interferes in human affairs to fix the outcome of sporting events and who freezes old people in Britain to death just for a laugh. Spud (talk) 13:49, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
No, the God of Andy's theology does have all those attributes. He just "chooses" not to use them, even if it would benefit the world. Coincidentally, this is similar to Andy's definition of a liberal (one who can do great things, but always chooses to do the opposite).-- Forerunner (talk) 14:19, 29 July 2015 (UTC)

Perhaps the previous problems with the website were not a divine intervention after all. Hclodge (talk) 16:52, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

Omniscience has its drawbacks. (It's Oglaf, and more NSFW than most.) Alec Sanderson (talk) 17:15, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Andy and misogyny, part 2.55 e23

So StacyT pops by, and being her feminist self adds some actually informative content on underrated female sports stars.img Personally, I had only heard about Clara Hughes. Andy, sensing a crisis of...??... removes athletes promoted by the media,img while wisely retaining Serena Fucking Williams, the scrappy unknown tennis player dominating her sport for the last 10 years in obscurity. StacyT's error, of course, was adding material relevant to Underrated Sports Stars, and not having a psychic link to Andy's unwritten and arbitrary rules on content. Shakedangle (talk) 14:40, 31 July 2015 (UTC)

And no newspaper ever had a good thing to say about Stan Musial either. Whoover (talk) 15:05, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
I love how when a page starts creeping into respectability Andy heroically flies in to remind us that it's all partisanship, all the time. Almost as much as I love how StacyT, through her interaction with Conservapedia, has turned into an independent thinking woman challenging authority, if not an outright feminist. Shakedangle (talk) 15:45, 31 July 2015 (UTC)
Andy proves what a truly nasty little man he is there after StacyT puts them back with a reasonable explanation and he simply reverts without explanation. She should obviously not be expressing opinions, the cheeky minx! Sphincter (talk) 13:18, 1 August 2015 (UTC)
God, he's such a prick. I hear stories of how he's super personable or that he inspires loyalty, but that just makes it worse for me. Shakedangle (talk) 13:24, 3 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Andy's killed the site again

It seem's he's done some update, the conservapedia logo is no longer there, and some pages simply won't work. Nice one Andy.

Some quality upgradingimg work there by andy Oldusgitus (talk) 07:33, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
Really, at this point, Andy has to know that CP only exists for our amusement. What's his incentive to keep going?--Umichcynic (talk) 09:19, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
It's fixed now. And andy keeps cp going because he has nothing else and to stop now would be to admit defeat and he will never do that imo. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:56, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
I hope he never gives up. For me it's like the ant farm I had as a kid. It's fascinating watching them scurry around moving the little hate-filled eggs from one tunnel to another. Even though the behaviors are 100% predictable, it's very comforting to watch because you know they can't get out. Whoover (talk) 19:20, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

The up-date was overdue: the last one happened in 2010! This one went quite smoothly, remember that previous up-dates had side-effects:

  • guard-dog was killed, as it was not able to parse a new version of Special:RecentChanges
  • Ed Poor wasn't able to cope with a new level of security for automated editing, so EdBot died.
  • And then there are their problems with encoding (think of Joaquín Martínez and his pesky accents)

Though, the main reason that nothing broke this time is that there is nothing breakable left - EdBot was the most sophisticated toy at CP (*shudder*) --larron (talk) 21:27, 2 August 2015 (UTC)

Didn't take the opportunity to install Ken's long-requested embed video extension. Snork. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:18, 2 August 2015 (UTC)
They 'still' haven't fixed the problem with special characters in page titles and image names. So if something has an "&" in it, you just can't get it to load. PsyGremlin講話 11:28, 3 August 2015 (UTC)
Shurely you're not suggesting a campaign to fill the site with articles containing special characters? That would be a dreadful thing to do. Sphincter (talk) 16:01, 4 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] More Relativity from Andy

Andy is attacking E=mc² with renewed vigor. Maybe Trump is inspiring him.

First he yanked some wikiversity lecture links that interfered with his narrative as "Wikipedia logic"img and yanked Einstein's name because "people don't own formulas."img

Then, we have a new article, "Attempts to prove E=mc²" with arguments of such strength as "A common defect to these "proofs" is an unjustified assumption that the energy and momentum of a physical system have a dependence on velocity akin to a moving participle."img Goodluck with your asparagus. Whoover (talk) 02:18, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

He's added "Nuclear-fission reactions, such as the transformation of hydrogen to helium, do not demonstrate any connection between the rest energy of a mass and the speed of light, as E=mc² asserts."img Start the countdown to AugustO sputtering the math of H2 atomic weight minus He atomic weight equaling released energy over c², followed by Andy going "la la la." Whoover (talk) 03:14, 5 August 2015 (UTC)

I was about to say, what do you expect from someone who doesn't understand the difference between fusion and fission, but it's dumb on a much more deeper level than that. Asparagus, indeed. Shakedangle (talk) 15:14, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
I don't understand this "asparagus"-thing here. Could you fill me in on that (English is my 3rd language, after all), please?--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 15:18, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
Most recently, it refers to a US Attorney General (Eric Holder) mocking what he may have thought was a verbal mis-step by Louie Gohmert on the floor of some legislative chamber or other. Turns out Mr. Gohmert may have been referring to earlier plays on the word "aspersions" by some comedian or other. SmartFeller (talk) 15:39, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
The dumbest man in Congress says nonsense and later gets trolled for it. It was a brain fart, not an attempt at comedy. Kind of like "moving participle." Whoover (talk) 16:16, 5 August 2015 (UTC)
I see August has just arrived and is slapping andy all over his idiotic 'article' about 'Einstein's formula'. Now to wqait for andy to wake up and start his reverting. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:27, 6 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Andy and Free Speech

Andy rips Megyn Kelly onimg freeimg speechimg groundsimg for pointing out that Trump calls women names. I wonder how Trump became the Next Great True Conservative. But more interesting is Andy's notion that free speech is not about one having the right to say whatever crap one wants to (I don't recall any media outlet being bashful about quoting him) but apparently is about the right to have everyone agree with what you said. Kelly just asked if asking a game show contestant for a blowjob might strike some female voters as unpresidential. Does Andy really see that question as being a violation of Trumps constitutional rights? I guess he does. Whoover (talk) 20:22, 8 August 2015 (UTC)

Political extremists seem to think that free speech = freedom from criticism and/or freedom to a platform. Blitz (Complaints Box) 20:34, 8 August 2015 (UTC)
More to do with Andrew's attitude to wimmin than a free speech issue. There must have been some odd things going on in his childhood. Sphincter (talk) 08:16, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
As I'm sure you know his mother is The Wicked Witch of the Midwest. Damn right there were some odd things going on during his childhood. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:32, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

This Sunday's sermon from Andy: Democracy is Anti-Christian. We hear that democracy is inherently anti-Islam from extremists all the time, but I think this is new. Whoover (talk) 16:30, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Declaring themselves the guardians of democracy while at the same time damning it. Absolutely Orwellian.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 16:34, 9 August 2015 (UTC)

Oh my, how I loveah, vraiment?!?? this manufactroversy!!--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 16:50, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
So what is surprising here? Andy holds misogynist views as indicated in his article. He defends the free speech rights of a fellow misogynist and venomously criticises a woman in the process. Nothing that odd here. Dimadick (talk) 20:10, 9 August 2015 (UTC)
Nobody said this is surprising, but there isn't much "original" comedy at CP these days. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 06:23, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Oh please, PRETTY PLEASE, let them do this.

Andy now wants CP to host a GOP debateimg. That would be so much fun. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:19, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

I'd say, he's too crazy even for the present clown car (and, what's more important, not important enough).--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 06:23, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
It's nice that Andy and the CP crowd still have big dreams. The fact that there's no way those dreams will ever come true just makes it all sweeter. Spud (talk) 11:25, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Schadenfreude ist die schönste Freude[1]!!--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 11:28, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
The best part of that is Jpratt totally not understanding how a debate works: "Yeah, we'll give the people we like 6 minutes, and those we don't like, only 3." Jpratt - making Faux News look fair and balanced since 2007. But yeah, even in CP's heyday of 2007/08, not even the craziest of these candidates would go near them, and now... well, keep dreaming, boys. -PsyGremlin講話 12:10, 10 August 2015 (UTC)
Complete fantasy. Hey, Andy, how does it feel to be too extreme and ridiculous for a party whose current leader in the polls is Donald Trump? --Night Jaguar (talk) 17:15, 10 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Teapartycrusaders? Anyone? ...Anyone?

So since CP has gone into the next phase of the long slow slide into oblivion by way of getting really boring, I've found myself some entertainment by going to the right-page links and measuring the degree to which the facts disagree with the headline. This sometimes points me to CNAV - which I actively avoid, due to me not wanting to provide ad-cash to the likes of Conservative - but lately something like half of the links are to tea party crusaders. Unlike CP, comments can actually be posted in their drivel 'articles'! Also unlike CP, they usually respond to actual thoughts and valid criticism with just killing the entire comment thread rather than selective deletion. Which is how I know I've won, I guess? Anyway, I found that there is no actual way to contact TPC or the myriad shadow entities who run the site. No e-mail, no names listed, no organizations other than TPC are mentioned. There is a link to their Facebook group, sucking hole of bile that it is, which has no more leads. Since I have the old, I'm no good at digging things up on the Interconnected Network, and maybe some of you just have keener eyes than me. So what is TPC? A clickbait front for one of CP's minions? A total stranger that they just glommed onto for right-page filler? A Koch-fueled cog in the vast Right Wing Machine? Or is it just Chinatown? --Semipenultimate (talk) 17:56, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

You sure, your firewall/antivirus/both ain't too paranoid (e.g. some weird-ass antivirus on a computer of a friend of mine wouldn't allow me to install µtorrent)?--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 20:42, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps, and I did not get affected just by visiting the site but I clicked on a link that installed a variety of adware that would highlight certain words on sites that would lead to advertisements. I thought little of it until I visited the BBC site and saw it. The BBC does not use ad links, in fact it is not allowed to do so. Agreed this was 2 years ago when TPC was in it's infancy and they may well have cleaned up their act now.--Mercian (talk) 21:11, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
TPC is run by— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
Funny, on his Facebook he lists nearly 500 websites in interests- guess which isn't one of them. (talk) 23:45, 23 August 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, there doesn't seem to be any indication that he runs the site except via the LinkedIn information. And I haven't found any ties between CP and TPC. Unless of course Santo Lippo doesn't even exist and is a legal fiction that allows one of CP's crew to rack up ad bucks from the click-happy... but there's already CNAV for that. Who at CP is capable of not just making a click-farm but also of not boasting about how awesome it is that they made it? A combination of greed and small ego? At Conservapedia?! Even as the evidence trickled in, we were no closer to cracking the case. And then I realized: I was voice-overing in my head as I typed. Was I cracking up - or getting too close? --Semipenultimate (talk) 22:54, 24 August 2015 (UTC)
See, I am now so used to reading reddit that when I read a comment like that I immediately feel the need to upvote it and then feel disappointed that I can't. --Horace (talk) 17:19, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Those Wacky Liberal Scientists Again

I'm always struck by how much misinformation Andy can cram in a couple of sentences. Today's article is Napa Valleyimg where he conflates "Napa Valley" (an informal designation of a viticultural region draining the Napa River), Napa County (whose population he ascribes to "Napa Valley") and the city of Napa (the county seat of Napa County and epicenter of a 2014 earthquake).

The point of the article is really, "It was struck in 2014 by a massive earthquake unexpected by liberal experts, who pretend that earthquakes are most likely to occur around major fault lines instead." This is vintage Andy. He dismisses the liberal theory that earthquakes have to do with faults, but doesn't offer his alternate theory. I assume it's "God is pissed off, probably because of gays." But he's too chicken to come out and assert it, so he snipes at stupid scientists and their earthquake faults instead. Compared to Andy, Conservative is valiant. We don't call out Andy's passive-aggressive bullshit often enough. Whoover (talk) 22:11, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

Hope he doesn't go for Nappa next.--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ 22:14, 13 August 2015 (UTC)
Earthquakes are caused by Jesus hugging the Earth. When they kill people it's because Jesus wanted them to hang out with him in heaven. Unless they were atheist liberal sodomites, in which case Jesus was sending them to their just punishment in the lake of eternal fire. --Ymir (talk) 20:00, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Ken

It seems that the user:conservative collective has been quite, quite recently (pretty much since the update). Has Andy found a way to make Ken's edits invisible or is he know afraid of all his hiding of oversighting is now seen in the public logs so he can't really edit like he normally does. Ghost (talk) 12:24, 16 August 2015 (UTC)

I've also noticed that Andy and other editors seem to have been getting a lot of fucking shit written in kens abscence. Maybe Andy should make it permanent. Ghost (talk) 12:27, 16 August 2015 (UTC)
It's a shame, really. Ken makes the place entertaining.--Umichcynic (talk) 18:23, 17 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] TAR

It has been about five months since TAR has last graced the pages of Conservapedia. All of his spam farm remains in place to promote James Wesley Rawles and his wonderful books. Meanwhile, Messrs. Rawles and TAR have failed to make good on their promise of reciprocal promotion of CP. TAR had left the CP category structure in chaos, and nobody has step up to fix it. TAR has left numerous red links for articles that had promised to write. Finally TAR left a lot of material promoting the notion that true Conservatives should disengage from political life in the United States and immigrate to Idaho in order to focus upon the imminent collapse of the US. Implicit in the agreement to block all of TAR's critics was the promise that TAR would deliver the goods for CP; instead TAR has left CP a mess and has frozen out a number of productive editors in TAR's wake. Hclodge (talk) 17:13, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

IIRC kenny posted something about tar coming out of care and starting to post again sometime in September. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:13, 18 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] How utterly unsurprising

So someone went on to cp call them out on their rank hypocrisy over Duggar and his (repeated) hypocrisy. After much back and forthimg he was of course banned by andy. — Unsigned, by: Oldusgitus / talk / contribs

Best picture of Conservapedia ever! :D (talk) 09:23, 22 August 42015 AQD (UTC)
Why would CP not ban someone who came only to "call them out"? Sorry, but I don't see any problem at all with simply banning someone who came to a Wiki for no other reason than to start an argument. There's plenty to mock CP for, but banning trolls isn't really mockable. Phiwum (talk) 13:36, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Not really the point as I suspect you know. The point is that whoever it was, it wasn't me, asked them about their blatant hypocrisy and they essentially refused to address the point and then blocked the poster to prevent him further showing them up. If someone comes here to 'call out' they tend to be addressed, their points rebutted and only if they continue they are blocked. Wikipedia doesn't block people straight off, they tend to be warned and advised. CP simply wil not confront their own lies and hypocrisy, prefering instead to silence any 'opposition' before shouting about liberal censorship. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:49, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Eh, if you say so. I thought it was an obvious troll who generated some discussion and received the block he deserved. Yes, CP is hypocritical when it comes to the sins of conservatives vs. liberals. Not a brilliant insight there, just trying to throw a little tiff on a talk page.
Sorry, I was unimpressed with the troll or the noteworthiness of his eventual ban. Phiwum (talk) 20:50, 22 August 2015 (UTC)
Have a look at our own block log - whatever right we had to be outraged about ideological blocks evaporated a long time ago. I guess it's true that it's inevitable - RW has become what it hated. Tielec01 (talk) 07:37, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Did CP just lose a week again?

They were down earlier today, and now the most recent edit appears to be from the 19th. Without any supporting evidence whatsoever, I blame Cons.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 22:30, 25 August 2015 (UTC)

YUP. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 06:55, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
And... More downtime, as of 07:41, 26 August 2015 (UTC). WalkerWalker(It's the conflict, stupid.)
To those at CP who read this page, I have a copy of the database from the 24th, which you could restore too. All you need to do is unban DVergne, Markman and Brendan. Ghost (talk) 12:01, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
Too? WalkerWalker(It's the conflict, stupid.) 12:08, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
I'm a big fan of Andy wikilinking to "God." Ya know, in case anyone was confused about who he was talking about. AyzmoCheers 14:19, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

User: "Man, that's the second time in a few years where you've lost an entire week's worth of contributions. I can't recall such a thing ever happening at Wikipedia -- to what do you ascribe the difference?"
Andy: "More of a spiritual focus here than at Wikipedia."img
Huh? Is he suggesting the devil is hacking them? Then he makes this bizarre edit.img Andy, are you feeling okay? --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:47, 26 August 2015 (UTC)

Does The Week That Never Was II: Long Run Boogaloo mean that something actually happened in August that can go on the actual WIGO page? Spud (talk) 15:44, 27 August 2015 (UTC)
