[edit] Kenservapedia

Has anyone checked the recent changes lately? It seems to be all Ken... Is there any way to get exact up to date statistics on % of edits by a particular user? (talk) 18:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Ermmm, at a rough guess you could try looking up the page very slightly. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:02, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
I mean is there a special page or something to get fresh data? (talk) 19:21, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Maybe in the old days when we still really, really cared about CP, there might have been. Now that it's become the demented parent, dribbling away in the corner, not so much. PsyGremlinPraat! 19:31, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
Just from some querying at a glance, Ken has made 2,557 of the 4,353 edits on Conservapedia for the month of October 2014. The edit number should be much higher though due to his habit of deleting and burying everything. But I guess making an edit to Conservapedia roughly once every 12 minutes for the last three weeks is an accomplishment? -Nets awesome (talk) 20:42, 21 October 2014 (UTC)
I'd still like to know what happened with Project 200 and the booklet. Ah well...Acei9 21:16, 21 October 2014 (UTC)

Damn. It's always hard to tell if Ken is getting worse or if it's just a problem of perception. It's so sad. I'd like to hear his justification of why he's not a government mooch. I wonder if he's ever been able to work. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:12, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Says who Ken isn't say, disabled or retired? Afterall, 24-hr editing streaks may requires those attributes to work. Or are you saying that Ken is a hive mind of more than 1 person who take shifts to work and other shifts to edit? K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 12:30, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

If it's all the same Ken, I won't take advice on how to spend my time from somebody who spends 36 hours editing sad articles on an even sadder hate blog. And no, there is no mysterious collective hiding behind the user:Conservative nick. The voices in your head don't count as multiple users. PsyGremlinPraat! 05:25, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Um, Popeye...

In regards to this news item of yoursimg, I'm afraid Senator Vreenak has some bad news for you:

Sorry about that, I'm afraid your silly dogma still has no evidence behind it. If only you'd actually google these things before you posted, a little fact checking goes a long way. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:11, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

*wipes eyes* Oh, so much of funny. You'd think the banner headline "Porn Star Legend Retires At Age 81" would be a giveaway, but nooooo. Thanks for the good laugh, Kara. Now hurry up and burn the evidence. Yes, yes is it satire. PsyGremlinPraat! 18:35, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Or maybe this. Whoover (talk) 18:48, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
It's like this site was created for fooling people on facebook. I love it. The other story (dirty liberal thug stuffing a ballot box) is pretty funny, too. Even WND admits it was perfectly legal. It does fall in line with their voter suppression tactics. Why aren't these lazy infirmed geriatrics wheeling themselves into the polling station? Occasionaluse (talk) 20:05, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Cokeeyes to the rescueimg! Who knew he still reads this site? HI TERRY! --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:38, 22 October 2014 (UTC)
Karajou included a claim about "Liberal thug caught stuffing a ballot box" in his post, something which Ken - oblivious to the actions of his fellow sysops - reposted; after all that's something too good to pass up, isn't it? Except that it's complete bollocks. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding Moderator 09:15, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

So... Is CP now officially a Parody site now? Or is there some sort of rule that sites referencing parody sites are not parody sites? K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 17:44, 24 October 2014 (UTC)

The rule is that if the referencing site is full of people who are too stupid to recognize parody, it's a special case called Conservapedia. Andy himself regularly demonstrates the corollary of Poe's Law that asserts its commutative property. This is sincere extremism that appears to be parody. Whoover (talk) 18:33, 24 October 2014 (UTC)
they're doubling down now with a storyimg about Obama ordering green paper to print green cards... (for those who haven't seen one, they're credit card sized plastic cards, and not green) — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs
Hold a tick. If Obama is a legal alien, then he'd have a green card, and know that they're not made of card any more. So is he a legal alien? CS Miller (talk) 12:30, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Conservapedia's great! I go there all the time

Why?img Nothing ever happens. Just the sysops live-blogging their internet surfing through In the News, and maybe an occasional content-scarce essay based on dubious statistics.--"Shut up, Brx." 15:07, 25 October 2014 (UTC)

Apparently he got over 2000 thumbs up on an article that has less than 2000 page views. I think the audience for the Freedom from Atheism "Foundation" is attention-deficit rageaholics. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:26, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
Looks like 2014 had been another bad year for Darwinism and a good year for bible-believing Christianity. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. Moderator 11:02, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
How long has "church" been a verb? Whoover (talk) 14:58, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
I'm struggling with your pedantry here, can you elucidate? "To church" has a long history, unless you are referring to "churchless" then it would be analogous to "homeless". Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 17:59, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Pedantry? I've never heard of people being churched or unchurched. My spellchecker has never heard of unchurched either. I'll happily stipulate that's it a thing. Not being familiar with it "pedantic," not a thing. Whoover (talk) 18:57, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Perhaps it's a US thing. I have never heard the term "To church" in my 53 years here in the UK (and several months over the years visiting South Africa). Oldusgitus (talk) 18:24, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, as a Canadian I can't say I've ever heard that term used that way either. - Grant (talk) 19:33, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────It's in the OED from the 16th century Sphincter (talk) 21:12, 26 October 2014 (UTC)

I believe that here (UK) it's usually referring to a woman after chidbirth (when she'd be "unclean?) - a bit of googling confirms that. Scream!! (talk) 23:08, 26 October 2014 (UTC)
Well there you go, I learn something every day. I've still never heard it in use in 53 years though. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:24, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Goes to show. There's always something new dunno where I heard it but I've been around for 70+ years - through most of which I've not been "churched" though. Scream!! (talk) 07:37, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
Oxford labels it as "archaic" (as does Merriam-Webster), so it's not surprising that very few people here have heard it used. Evidently it's not in everyday use in general anymore. - Grant (talk) 04:09, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Is the Freedom From Atheism Foundation Ken's new side project? Should we be expecting a booklet sometime next year? Snrub (talk) 16:54, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

The Book of Common Prayer has a section for Churching of Women. I never understood what it was for. Now I do. Thanks, Scream!! Cardinal Fang (talk) 16:35, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] They seem to coddle him

Other sysops like jpatt and karajou often delete harmless back-talk on Ken's behalf. Like this — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 20:37, 26 October 2014

They barely tolerate him. They have never defended him beyond deleting and burning any talk against him and banning the offenders. You'll never hear any of them defend his actual work, give him any praise or speak highly of him, nor will you hear them admonish him. None of them respond to posts Ken puts on their talk pages. Even when he deleted the MPR and replaced it with his own blog there was nary a peep from any of the admins. -Nets awesome (talk) 22:52, 27 October 2014 (UTC)
indeed. It not so much that they like ken, it more that they dislike dissent. AMassiveGay (talk) 23:49, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Gandpa's got a gun

Three guys break into a house and use guns to terrorise the family - yay guns! So then grandpa manages to grab his gun and shoot all three of them, killing one - yay guns!! And for his trouble, he gets shot a few times himself and is still in the ICU - yay guns!!! Ruddager (talk) 08:48, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] Andy vs the Pope

I'd like to see Andy go off on the latest liberal rant from the pope. It's such a shame that they've been so successful at stifling/silencing discussion. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:22, 28 October 2014 (UTC)

As long as you stay away from human reproduction, the Catholic Church seems to typically be far less anti-science than most other branches of Christianity. Between this and the pope's comments about gays, I'm surprised Andy hasn't converted to Southern Baptist, which seems like it would be far more in line with his views. Snrub (talk) 19:16, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
Andy is no more catholic than I am. He may pay lip service to the faith but imo he long ago stopped actually believing in any of the tenets of the faith that don't fit his bigoted viewpoint, a viewpoint entirely dominated by the single most dominating influence in his life. What he will do when the malevolent influence of mamma s lifts from his shoulders will be interesting to watch. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:03, 28 October 2014 (UTC)
I'm not even sure Andy's "ideas" could even be classified as religious anymore. He's gone full politics, religion is just the justification. Acei9 09:33, 30 October 2014 (UTC)
Andy believes Christianity is inherently political. His delusions lead him to believe that he's the one true Catholic. This is why I wish people were still around to challenge him. Peering into the mind of Andy was equally fascinating and terrifying. Occasionaluse (talk) 21:24, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

Terry takes an odd phrasing on the matter. Occasionaluse (talk) 21:24, 30 October 2014 (UTC)

I think His Popiness also believes that Christianity is, at least sometimes, inherently political but he doesn't reach the same political conclusions as American ultra-conservatives. Logic would say to Schlafly, "think about what your religious leader is saying about the poor, the sick, gays excluded from Holy Communion, etc." Schlafly tells logic (and the Pope) where to stick it. Cardinal Fang (talk) 14:35, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
The last time something like this happened, Andy harped about how it wasn't "from the chair" (or whatever the Latin is) so it wasn't "official". Occasionaluse (talk) 18:10, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

[edit] He's a Keeper

Badger skinsimg guy is going the full Ken. He's got four articles, three on the giant multi-colored unicorn of the Old Testament. The fourth, an odd stubimg conflates this guy and this guy, although they died about 60 years apart. He also uses the wrong spelling for the second guy, confusing him with his great-grandfather. Not surprisingly, Ken has taken this new patient editor under his wing. Whoover (talk) 15:48, 31 October 2014 (UTC)

He's been quietly building up to full blown idiocy for a while now. JoeyJ is the other on I'm keeping an eye on. Classic parodist behaviour. Between them they could yet make cp interesting again, although I don't hink badgers is a parodist. Just a nutter. Vargas Milan interest me as well. 'He' could yet get interesting. I await kenny's 'i told you so' claims in the next few months when they all out themselves. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:01, 31 October 2014 (UTC)
