Donald Trump achievements[edit]

On January 3, 2017, cp:Donald Trump achievements started out as an interesting article. Trump had promised to achieve a lot on "his first day" and during his first 100 days in office, and the idea of an objective article that tracks whether Trump met his promises could be interesting to readers. The article quickly became politicized by User:1990sguy, who many suspect is a parodist. Anything mentioned on became an achievement, and any "failure" added by other users was reverted as premature. According to 1990sguy, the fact that corporate earnings increased in the first half of 2017 is a Trump achievement and not the result of Obama's economic policy. Rather than try to collaborate with other editors, 1990sguy repeatedly ran to Andy's talk page. His standard for achieving agreement is:

If you still disagree with me, please go and convince the site's owner to agree with you.[1]

It has been a long time since an editor has argued "We are here to do what Andy would want" instead of "We are here to follow the Conservapedia commandments." The harder 1990sguy labors to show that Donald Trump has had countless achievements, the more he makes a case that very little has been achieved. Hclodge (talk) 09:16, 14 August 2017 (UTC)

1990sguy is starting nuclear war. In essence, he is adding bias to other people's writing and then goes running to Andy if anyone pushes back or reverts. 1990sguy is too busy to actually read and think about other people's edits, so he is complaining to Andy about inaccurate edit summaries. In response, Andy threatened:

Misleading or inadequate edit summaries are a justification for blocking, whether the edits themselves are considered actual vandalism or not. In addition, any editor who repeatedly distracts productive editors should be blocked, and will be blocked. No further justifications are needed.--Andy Schlafly (talk) 16:35, 15 August 2017 (EDT)

The context of the dispute was that 1990sguy wrote that President Trump had denounced black lives matter as "anti-police" when in fact, the official transcript of the speech (as well as the media reports) show that Trump did not expressly mention black lives matter. Instead of admitting that he was wrong, 1990sguy complained to Andy about inaccurate edit summaries. In response, this new essay appeared: cp:Essay:Truth and accuracy matterimg 1990sguy is busy adding inflamatory stuff into JDano's text and Andy claims that JDano (rather than 1990sguy) is an "editor who repeatedly distracts productive editors".
