[edit] Where is Karajou?

His last post, including blocks, was on the 17th September, two weeks ago [1]. DO you think he has jumped ship?--Mercian (talk) 21:09, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

Doubtful, he'll return when he gets bored and wants a power trip. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 21:26, 1 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Where is Ed Poor?

No edits on CP for coming up on 2 years, so he's clearly thrown in the towel there, but no edits on WP since 1 June either. PsyGremlin講話 05:37, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Speaking in tongues

Bit confused here, is it good or bad no one translated ? linkimg. Also Ken what is the point at over sighting all your tiny edits, we can all see what you've done. Be a man, with Machismo (Ole Ole Ole) and don't oversight them. Ghost (talk) 06:51, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure Andy and Ken are confusing the Jews for Jesus guy's Hebrew for speaking in tongues. There is no reference to speaking in tongues in the article. The fake Jewish prayers are probably what tripped up our religion mavens. Ken is burning revisions so he may be figuring out the blunder. But that video of Trump resisting the urge to get the bunch of loonies tossed is priceless. This primary season is the best ever. Whoover (talk) 07:37, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Also when did conservapedia start have scheduled maintenance img  ? Ghost (talk) 08:06, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

Cover for major history deletions, perhaps?-- Forerunner (talk) 12:48, 6 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] The kitty's back

With 40 editsimg today of which 18 have been oversighted and deleted. Oh please ken, don't ever change. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:37, 13 October 2015 (UTC)

Oh Ken, why did you have to move it :( DeenFlyingKitty.gif Ghost (talk) 11:15, 14 October 2015 (UTC)
Some of it was to do with his religion and crime reduction and atheists and criminality. His answer was basically to ethnically cleanse atheists so crime would fall to around zero. Either that or he was over siting tiny little things like spelling mistakes and typos but that is the Streisand Effect for you.--Mercian (talk) 17:37, 15 October 2015 (UTC)
Who's that, riding the kitty? Cardinal Fang (talk) 00:03, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
A long haired, creationist beauty. Ghost (talk) 11:15, 18 October 2015 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure type 2 diabetes is a disqualification. Whoover (talk) 05:55, 19 October 2015 (UTC) How fun that the flying kitty is a product of Godless Britain. (its actually 'Captain Pussington', from gooleing which I see the owner appears to be aware - though perhaps wouldn't be ok with modifications)
I didn't know that Yorkshire had its own search engine. (Goole) Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. Moderator 10:29, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Where is TAR?

It has been seven months since TAR has last graced the pages of Conservapedia. User Conservative had announced that he would return in September. 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 he 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. A clean-up of the TAR residue is over due, and it is time that TAR's critics be allowed to return to CP. Hclodge (talk) 12:26, 20 October 2015 (UTC)

TBH who cares? AugustO has been quietly trying to tidy some stuff up as have one or two others but I've decided not to use my sock to bother. ken and andy have allowed this midden to be created. Let them either tidy it up themselves or wallow in it as they see fit. After all, theirs is the 'trustworthy encyclopedia'. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:28, 20 October 2015 (UTC)
Take a look at TARs block log. No other spammer has been allowed to block for an indefinite duration so many other editors in such a short a period of time. TAR blocked anyone who called out his bad actions. Hclodge (talk) 05:13, 27 October 2015 (UTC)
User Conservative has gone back through TAR's blocks and adjusted the expiration of TAR's indefinite blocks to just 5.5 to 6 years.Img Hclodge (talk) 10:27, 30 October 2015 (UTC)

One of the popular features of CP that drew a lot of viewers (including me) was CP's coverage of Wikipedia. TAR shut that down, and now edits Wikipedia, although with less blatant spamming than he did at CP. At least he plays both sides of the CP-Wikipedia fence with equal spamosity. Perhaps User Conservative can get TAR to hop back over to the CP side. Hclodge (talk) 09:41, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] God Hates Harper

According to Andy, Harper lost because he didn't hate gays and women enough. Whoover (talk) 17:16, 20 October 2015 (UTC)


When did the Donate Button popup? I've only just noticed it so I'm guessing it was added recently. Surely he should just hit up Ken for money Ghost (talk) 00:03, 22 October 2015 (UTC)

Did Mommy Dearest cut Andy's allowance? Vulpius (talk) 01:18, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
We are sure to get some figures soon as conservatives are so generous when it comes to charity. Ken will be emptying his piggy bank no doubt. See [2].--Mercian (talk) 03:40, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Would be interesting to see what happens if we use a fiver from the Rationalwiki slush fund. Guessing Andy would accept it, but not mention it at all. Could we start seeing shoutouts on the main page in the manor of "eat it up liberals Ken from Buffalo NY has donated $8.0085" Ghost (talk) 09:18, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Expanding on that, I wonder how much money it would take for Andy to sell the CP domain name. I reckon if you offered him a grand or two he would take it, cut his loses and run.--Mercian (talk) 12:52, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Awright, buy his domain and make it into a redirect to RationalWiki, that'd be the ultimate triumph (capture the gates of thy enemies and shit like that)!--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 13:01, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
I did some digging apparently Phyllis isn't in the best of health at the moment (she is 90+ after all), guessing he's trying to find another funding source besides the Eagle Forum. Taking it over would be the final sign of victory, although then we'd have thousands of articles of Bestiality, Atheism, Obesity, and Homosexuality and .... on the servers. As well as a badly translated version of the bible. Ghost (talk) 13:17, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
What are you talking about?! Delete the content of the servers and make the whole goddamn domain into a redirect to RationalWiki!--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 17:10, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
Perhaps he should acknowledge whatever financial contribution CP received from James Wesley Rawles and friends so that everyone can understand the spam farm. Hclodge (talk) 14:37, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
All your base are belong to us:) Get well soon Phyllis,not a particularly nice old lady but she has fought her corner with vigor well into her old age so some respect is deserved I suppose.--Mercian (talk) 15:45, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
If Andy's relying on conservatives to fund him, the site will go belly up pretty soon. The Tea Party Community (their version of Facebook) has a donation target of $4,500 to cover expenses. Looking at this month's collection, they've raised $435, which is about par for the course. And this is a site boasting some 150,000 (although you can't delete your account, so the number of active users is probably way below that), not a backwater wiki populated to 5 angry, old white dudes. PsyGremlin講話 14:28, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Many web hosting services charge about $4 per month for long term contracts. So costs $65 per year for hosting and domain name registration combined. Hclodge (talk) 05:21, 27 October 2015 (UTC)

That would be mainly for small sites with comparatively few visitors. All that clickbotting pumped up CP's bandwidth usage. I remember TK whining in the superseekrit forum about how RW vandals were costing Andy money. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. Moderator 10:36, 12 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] That moment when a cause that progressive activists have been working on for years becomes Truly Conservative...

Prison reform. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 19:15, 25 October 2015 (UTC)

They are the ones who have been shrieking about "law and order" since Nixon. Never met a civil liberty they weren't willing to gut or a sentence that was too long -- until three seconds ago.---Mona- (talk) 19:21, 25 October 2015 (UTC)
What Andy wrote was remarkably sane. World... not... making sense....arghhhhh.....quick Andy, say something ridiculous....""Majesty" is monarchical term. There were no monarchies at the time of Christ, and the tendency by Anglophiles to see everything in terms of a silly monarchy should be resisted."img Phew, alright I'm good. --Night Jaguar (talk) 06:26, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Ah, that "majesty" stuff is classic ignorance + intransigence from Andy; just like old times. I'm amused to see that the first definition of the word in the OED is "The greatness and glory of God" (though I suppose the OED is a liberal publication...) . Cantabrigian (talk) 12:48, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
Andy isn't much on the Old Testament, I guess. "King" (melech) is a thing. King Saul, King David, etc., etc. are documented in I and II Kings. "King of Kings" is a name for God, and the NT merely extended its use to Jesus. His claim that it's a mistranslation due to the godless English loving monarchy before God is a typically Andy fantasy. Watch for the CBP to rename "Kings" to "Big Men." Whoover (talk) 21:05, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
I wonder how long the wingnut welfare cheque paid to andy by the (few) organisations who retain his 'services' will continue to be cashed once Phyllis shuffles off this mortal coil? His entire life is fantasy, the fantasy of the totally irrelevant who think they actually have some influence. Oldusgitus (talk) 21:32, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
According to Wikipedia, Andrew Schafly was born in 1961, so he will reach age 62 in April 2023. So, for the next eight years, he can get by tutoring home-schooled students and then go on Social Security. If he wants another serious job in the meantime, he should probably distance himself from CP, or else figure out a way to make it more main stream conservative. Hclodge (talk) 09:53, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Astrophysical Shatner Effect?

Ok, I've googled that and the original German, with and without quotes, and can't find anything. Does anyone know where I can find information on this? AyzmoCheers 13:00, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

If there were a German original, it should read like "Astrophysikalischer Schatteneffekt" or "Astrophysikalischer Beschattungseffekt", though "Astrophysik" generally doesn't come into play with "Windkraftanlagen". --larron (talk) 13:41, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
My god, now this stupid motherfucker Andy also violates the German language...--Arisboch ☞✍☜☞✉☜ ∈)☼(∋ 14:16, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
I figured it's an effect caused by or maybe somehow directly impacting Shatner's Bassoon. Tialaramex (talk) 14:29, 26 October 2015 (UTC)
I refer my learned friend to the Proceedings of the Rogers Institute of Culture and Kinetics, vol. XXXIX no. 3. You may consider skipping the third section as it is altogether too sensational. London Grump (talk) 19:54, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

I found this from Urban Dictionary: "The Shatner Effect: A cinematic term when in a movie or television program, an actor or actress removes their top, or appears without it for no apparent reason." So I guess Astrophysical Shatner Effect is that, just in space? :P --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:02, 26 October 2015 (UTC)

Ed, please come out of retirement. There is an article you need to write. Vulpius (talk) 11:02, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
Sorry? Did I miss something? Has this to do with pubescent girls? Otherwise why would creepy uncle ed want to contribute? Oldusgitus (talk) 22:12, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

[edit] AugustO again

Nowe I really don't think he is a parodist but this latest spat between andy and augusto is shaping up into yet another classic. He seems to be able push all the right buttons, by being entirely reasonable and correct, to back andy into yet tighter corners of idiocyimg. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:13, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

The editorial staff is spread too thin over at CP. Instead of updating the website to reflect the election of Paul Ryan as Speaker of the House, they are translating the Bible, documenting the exponential growth of Conservative words, and discovering the relationship between atheism and autism. No time for 2015 "Fiscal cliff" coverage. If Western Civilization is rapidly coming to an end, forget about English history and crazy English kings and just pack up your Bible and other prized possessions and move from New Jersey to rural Idaho. Hclodge (talk) 10:42, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
Idaho? I'm heading for General CokeEyes's compound - he's going to get a generator! London Grump (talk) 14:26, 30 October 2015 (UTC)
That autism thing is nasty even by their low standards.Sphincter (talk) 14:46, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
Right. If it were true it would make Ken's articles on atheism no less than an attack on the disabled.--Mercian (talk) 17:01, 31 October 2015 (UTC)
AugustO is calling Andy out again. I really can't see how he has survived so long. Worm (talk) 09:43, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
He does seem to be losing patience doesn't he. As for his survival, I actually think ken has had some influence on that. If it were up to anger bear and andy then I suspect August would have gone long ago for 'incivility'. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:41, 16 November 2015 (UTC)
You think Ken has influence over Andy? I don't. Phiwum (talk) 16:50, 17 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Once again, nobody at CP seems to notice or care about one of their own...

A thousand edits in 4 days. That is not healthy behaviour by any stretch of the imagination. Peace. AgingHippie (talk) 03:31, 1 November 2015 (UTC)

Eh, some people have a lot of free time. And most of it looks like cutting and pasting text and a bunch of minor edits. (talk) 03:34, 1 November 42015 AQD (UTC)
And that in some way makes it better exactly how? 250 edits a day, even minor ones, means an edit on average every 14 minutes for the entire 4 day period. I guess ken's off his meds again and noone is taking care to try to get him back on them. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:16, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
That makes it sound like they stay up all day to make one minor edit every quarter of an hour (which would be rather ridiculous, and a very inefficient way of editing). Making a 100 minor edits in a few hours isn't a difficult thing to do; it just implies that you're spreading out the changes you make over a multitude of tiny edits instead of making big edits or that you're fixing a minor issue that occurs on a multitude of pages. (talk) 10:33, 1 November 42015 AQD (UTC)
You're not a great follower of ken and cp based on those comments are you? This is history repeating itself all over again. People here are well aware of ken's identity and his underlying illnesses and this is just another time when his underlying issues are taking over. It will last for between a few days and a week or two and then ken will announce outside interests that will prevent him from editing and he will go quiet for a few days before gradually reverting back to his version of normal. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:51, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Talking about his "underlying illnesses" like that... it feels kind of an invasion of his privacy, almost borderline doxxing. Zack Martin HolyMaratreanSigil.png 10:58, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Nope, it's not. Have I told you who he is or where he lives yet? Have I said anything about what his underlying issues may be? And to be frank in my view AFAIC ken lost any moral defence against doxing anyway due to his actions to another poster on this site who's business he tried to destroy several years back. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:45, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Edit to add. How do you dox someone whos identity is so well known online that he even has his own internet law named specifically after him? Oldusgitus (talk) 12:53, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
I find the way people keep track of the amount of edits he makes per day possibly more problematic... Kinda stalkerish, you know? And again, one or two hundred edits per day is non-remarkable if you have a lot of free time and you typically spend most of the latter editing a wiki. I'm not saying spending most of your free time editing a wiki is a particularly healthy occupation, but I'd be more prone to blame fluctuations in editing activity on fluctuations in available free time than meds being taken or not. (talk) 11:12, 1 November 42015 AQD (UTC)
TBH bon I don't care what you think seems stalkerish. As I say you seem to be quite new to the going's on at cp and to ken in particular. What people here have tried to do to help ken in the past is evidently not on your radar is it. Oldusgitus (talk) 12:45, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Indeed the Conservapedia-related topics on RW are not something I've thoroughly familiarized myself with, but I disagree that this justifies the animosity that you're showing towards me that's seemed to have come out of nowhere. >.> (talk) 02:28, 2 November 42015 AQD (UTC)
Is there some kind of bot that could be doing that? Or maybe it's a group account?---Mona- (talk) 03:37, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
We have it pretty locked down that Ken is one person who is not a bot. --"Paravant" Talk & Contribs 04:16, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Did anyone catch his? [3]User:Conservative/Gentlemen:_A_message--Mercian (talk) 23:37, 1 November 2015 (UTC)
Ugh. Yeah, I saw it, and I wish I hadn't. It's for the better that he deleted it. Sadly self-revealing in a bad way that is best left forgotten. --Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 00:21, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] The prophet Tim Tebow not welcome in his hometown

I missed that CP has an article entitled Biblical political foreknowledgeimg. As an example, Andy has added Tim Tebow not being given a chance by the Jacksonville Jaquars, which the Bible predicts because it says prophets are not welcome by their hometownimg. His man crush has gone to the next level. --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:20, 8 November 2015 (UTC)

[edit] Not so much Andy's blog anymore.

About 1/2 of all news posts are authored by Paul Eidelberg by proxy of TerryH. All his posts are similar, Israel is always right and the USA is only right when it supports Israel without question or criticism. I wonder if Mr Eidelberg knows he is the new staple of Conservapedia.--Mercian (talk) 01:04, 22 November 2015 (UTC)
