(ec) Well considering the operation is "primarily being conducted in South Africa (and some other foreign places)", a Google search for "Question evolution south africa" limited the results to SA sites reveals... nada, zip, zilch. In fact, the first result is for Grade 7 biology, talking about evolution and the early hominids found here. The Question Evolution campaign isn't even half a squeak down here. Oh yes, Ken - 4 editsimg and it still says "Are you an evolutionists?" Moron. --PsyGremlinParlez! 13:48, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
You just don't know where to look for evidence of the South African campaign. See the first commentimg on this site. A self-identified physics lecturer has posted the fifteen questions on his office door. That's one down and only 999,999 to go! And then, after that, one million more! Obviously, South Africa is an integral battleground for the Question Evolution campaign! Phiwum (talk) 17:08, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

I enjoy the blurb as it holds a fundamental mistake:
The scientists at Creation Ministries International easily and effortlessly respond once again to evolutionists concerning their 15 Questions that evolutionists cannot satisfactorily answer. - Ken (emphasis mine)
Claiming those who work for CMI are legitimate scientists is a falsehood for there is no way they could conduct real or honest scientific research or inquiry based on this very statement which all members of CMI must adhere to: [1]
By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record. Of primary importance is the fact that evidence is always subject to interpretation by fallible people who do not possess all information. (emphasis mine)
By stating that no evidence can be accepted as factual, and no theory can be accepted as valid no matter how well supported by the facts if either violates the dogma set forth by their religious text, they invalidate themselves as real scientists and thus should not be taken seriously by the scientific community, skeptics, honest inquirers, or the general public. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:12, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

maybe if our young skulls full of mush were not getting evolution pounded into their craniums, and could concentrate on how systems actually operate and can be used for our benefit, and quit trying to justify a philosophy that is far from science, as evolution as regarding origins of life is neither testable or falsifiable, maybe our students would fare better in the workplace and in college environment

[edit] The sound of silence

I love it how CP sysops scatter upon being shown to be incorrect. DavidZaimg debunks the claims of a site used by Andy/Karajou to prove how earthquakes are doubling increasing at a geometric rate. Normal people would just admit it and move on. CP sysops just let it fester like an open wound they refuse to dress. The silence is music to my ears in a suspenseful way. Are they going to open their mouth again? Could they be that stupid? I'm waiting. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:29, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Clearly there is a pattern here.
And Karajou obliges!img He tells David three things he already knows:
  1. The writer of that website claims to take his information from the USGS
  2. he counted the number of quakes over the years (but fails to mention he got it wrong)
  3. I'm sure anyone here can do the same thing, without having to go through a peer review process. (it's just too bad that he didn't, because it's wrong...)
Karajou's malicious stupidity makes my day a little better. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:34, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Next steps: Ban. Delete. Masturbate. --ʤɱ kant 14:40, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
But... but... the site agrees with them... it must be right! --PsyGremlinPraat! 14:42, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Ok, so using this search function and covering every major quake (mag 7 and higher) since 1 Jan 1901, we get the following:
  1. 1901 - 1910: 112
  2. 1911 - 1920: 92
  3. 1921 - 1930: 64
  4. 1931 - 1940: 69
  5. 1941 - 1950: 89
  6. 1951 - 1960: 77
  7. 1961 - 1970: 88
  8. 1971 - 1980: 95
  9. 1981 - 1990: 58
  10. 1991 - 2000: 126
  11. 2001 - 2010: 151
  12. 2011 - 2011: 17
Comment. --PsyGremlinZungumza! 15:12, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I just did roughly the same thing with the centennial catalog and got:
  1. 90: 149
  2. 91: 185
  3. 92: 153
  4. 93: 171
  5. 94: 194
  6. 95: 139
  7. 96: 135
  8. 97: 156
  9. 98: 116
  10. 99: 155
  11. 00: 104
How did Adam and Eve deal with all those earthquakes? Occasionaluse (talk) 15:19, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
They are like the CMI; they have already decided their conclusion before researching the data, and if the data reveals their previous conclusion to be erroneous, then the data must be wrong. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 15:20, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── It's things like this that keep me coming back to CP.

The silence has set in. Non-sysops have reached consensus that the article is BS. Andy goes about continuing to make additions to the main page with not even a "trim" of the debunked news item. Angry Bear, who is probably just slightly less stupid than Ed, knows better than to continue lying. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:15, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I agree with Genghis - the 6.99 stuff looks rather silly, especially since what they want to say is so simple: "at least 7". And yes, you can practically hear their helpless confusion behind the scenes: Andy is not wrong unless he admits he is wrong + Andy didn't admit he is wrong + Andy is wrong = DOES NOT COMPUTE.--Sid (talk) 20:29, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

He's not really admitting defeat, he's just employing a Schlafly Rearguard.

They're all complete dicks over there. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:09, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Right, so I counted too. If earthquakes double every 40 years, then that proves a very young earth. 6000 years works out to 150 periods of 40 years, which means that there would be 2150 earthquakes. 2150 is 1,427,247,692,705,959,881,058,285,969,449,495,136,382,746,624. For the record, of we take the number of earthquakes in the last 40 years (430), then we get an age of about 350 years (40*log2(430))--Roofus (talk) 23:17, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
Math...make...brain...sizzle...jaAm--Thunderstruck (talk) 00:15, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Roofus's little analysis is the most obvious observation one could make and, of course, shows that Andy's "evidence" doesn't prove what he wants it to at all. But, since Roofus's calculation really is such an obvious thing to do, I wonder why no one else (either here or at CP) thought of it before his post? Great post, Roofus. Phiwum (talk) 17:40, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Er, perhaps I spoke too soon. Roofus, aren't you assuming that there was one earthquake in the first forty years? Maybe there were fractional numbers for some time -- say, only one earthquake per 80 or 120 or 2^n*40 years way back in the beginning. Phiwum (talk) 17:43, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
ISTM that if there were no earthquakes in the first 40 years and then one in the 2nd 40 years (ie one earthquake per 80 initially) then that is more than a doubling. Your first time period has to have at least one earthquake.--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 18:09, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Nonsense! This isn't like, oh, say, Conservative words which curiously exactly double every century (through some unknown mechanism). This is more statistical in nature. If the odds that an earthquake double every forty years, then reaching far enough back in the past, one could have forty year blocks in which the number of earthquakes are more than the expected value for that period or less. (Of course, Andy's "reasoning" is rarely this subtle, but the point remains: we can say that the expected number of earthquakes doubles every forty years without presuming that every forty year period has at least one earthquake or even at least one expected earthquake.) Phiwum (talk) 19:40, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Piffle and tosh! Both Karajou and the cited webpage refer explicitly to the number of earthquakes doubling in forty years, just like conservative words; not the liklihood of earthquakes doubling. In MPR, Andy claimed that severe earthquakes double every forty years, full stop. On his user page, he refers to 'increase in major earthquakes'. Of course, elsewhere Andy refers to 'frequency of earthquakes', but given his unique insights he may well be talking about some property of seismic waves that nobody has caught onto yet. I mean, what Ivy League trained engineer refers to 'frequency' when discussing probability or incidence?--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 20:31, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
Heh, thanks. I've been back in school and have had math on the brain lately.  :) Think of the exponent on 2 as the number of "doublings" of earthquakes. Years 0-40 represent the beginning of time, and there'd have to have been at least one earthquake or there'd be nothing to double. That's how we get 20. Zero doublings.
In the second 40 years, the number of earthquakes has doubled once, which is 21, and so on until we get to the 150th doubling. It's perfectly possible that there were more earthquakes in the first 40 years, or none until 80 or 120 years. Hell, let's go nuts and put the birth of earthquakes at the flood. That's about 4,000 years ago. That means that we'd have had 2100 earthquakes in the last 40 years. That's still way, way, way, more than the number of stars in the known universe. --Roofus (talk) 00:03, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

I think he's trying to say that the growing trend experienced in the last three decades is based on more reliable data than the decreasing trend since 1900. E.g. the higher number of earthquakes from 1900-1910 is based on unreliable data, but the number of earthquakes from 1980-1990 and 1970-1980 (lower than from 2000-2010) is "reliable".

Heh, that is one sparse list, especially compared to their "conservative songs" list. I don't know that most of the tracts that I would pick could be considered "conservative" (indeed, Hayek wrote an essay called Why I Am Not a Conservative), but since Andy and co. have appropriated Smith, what the hell: Nozick's Anarchy, State, and Utopia (far better than Rand); various things by Milton Friedman; Hayek's Road to Serfdom and Constitution of Liberty; various essays by Lysander Spooner (an anarchist, but influenced the libertarian movement heavily).

I found thisimg piece of linkwhoring to be particularly ammusing. tl;dr, Terry decided to throw his support behind a "Constitution Party" that believes in "God and godly principles and a God-ordained Constitution" Like the one he mentions in Florida.

They are not the earliest pages. That list only shows from March 2007 onward. Conservapedia began in November 2006. At some point, someone at CP managed to knock-off 5 months or so of history, including the earliest pages made and the first users who joined. So they no longer have an accurate record. I believe that TK did it sometime in early 2008, either accidentally through his stupidity and lack of tech know-how, or purposely whilst trying to cover up something (there was a specific reason & action at that time if I recall). Some earlier contribs can still be seen in individual user's history such as User contributions for ASchlafly where it shows he began editing in November 2006.

Either way, Andy can't admit he was wrong. He'd instantly ban Ken and erase all mention of him if Ken ever came out like Bugler or something, but until that happens, Andy will continue to let Ken do his thing because trying to rein him in or otherwise chastise him would weaken the "unified front" thing CP tries to put out.

He did defend Ken's crap on-wiki at least once, back when he was still writing his humorous machismo essays. Ever since, it's just been his tried-and-failed "Can't hear you!" approach. I bet he's gnashing his teeth every time Ken takes another dump all over his precious blog, but he'll never reverse course and scold him in public.

You know, much as I disagree with PZ Myers about innumerable things, User:Conservative should really be leaving his family alone. His daughter is a non-notable person, regardless of her views. Actually, I am willing to give her the benefit of the doubt on this one — if you are an atheist/utilitarian, it is really hard to logically justify that there is something immoral about bestiality. That is why herself, Peter Singer, many others, who ascribe to that worldview, accept the ethics of bestiality. As to myself, I don't accept it as right, but that is the non-utilitarian/deontological/teleological/spiritual side of my ethics talking. Humans exist to exist in a certain sort of relationship, and we can't have that sort of relationship with other animals. However, while I think bestiality is immoral, I don't think this is a proper function for the law to try to enforce that moral rule. Non-sadistic bestialists/zoophiles need some help, not legal persecution. That is something I would agree with Skatje Myers on, despite our otherwise massive differences in worldview.

Florida is a bitch for Presidential Canidates.

The you have a few not-so-large-but-still-big cities that swing around. And then you have Cubans who are pretty Democratic but mostly go hardnline on foreign politics and a lot of old people that might go for something or not. No matter what you say, you might end up saying something that doesn't run with Cubans or the elders. But back to the question. The normally Democratic voting Three Lake States have lost some electorates, but some Southern States have gained strength which is basically the complete opposite of what would have been good for Obama. But even if Florida goes Republican in 2012, Obama could still win by winning over other states or holding all other he held in 2012. But yeah, just looking at the Electoral College that thing's gonna be shitty. Except they nominate Bachmann, then Obama will win. --ʤɱ anti-communist 16:13, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Don't get me wrong, I don't like hell and don't want anyone to go to it. But its still part of my beliefs. --SmithRob (talk) 13:13, 22 September 2011 (UTC)
The problem I see with the most common Christian idea of hell, is not the idea of hell itself, but rather the idea of it being everlasting. I believe in hell, but I believe it is a temporary state, and at the expiration of its duration, those in hell are admitted into heaven. I think hell is reserved for rapists and murderers and so on. Depending on the severity of their crimes, they may spend a shorter or longer time there; some really evil people, like Hitler, may spend many millions of years there, but I believe even Hitler goes to heaven eventually.

[edit] Wherein I derail the topic slightly

The first realization (or as Andy would say "superb insight!") I had that led me to believe that Christianity was a crock of shit was the idea that God created the human race for the express purpose of sending the vast majority of them to Hell, including everyone who ever lived anywhere before missionaries arrived. It's probably the only thing that Andy and al Qaeda agree on. --Roofus (talk) 00:55, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

Heh, someone pointed out the stuff in Revelation that says only 144K go to heaven. I guess CP doesn't like Jehovah's Witnesses. -Lardashe
This really... really irks me. I feel like I get desensitized to the hateful bullshit that people at CP spout, but every once and a while Andy ups the ante. People go to hell because they believe in evolution? When did Jesus say, "the way to the father is through me and ignoring any evidence that indicates speciation through natural selection"? Andy is basically saying if you don't agree with my world view 100% you get eternal damnation. No parodist can beat Andy at his own game, what a ... I don't even have a word for him. --Marlow (talk) 01:00, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I think that`s what gets me the most about Conservapedia... most of it I can laugh off.

I dont think he goes to hell for being the pope or anything, but he is as possible as anybody. And what i meant was the fact for andy, being a Literalist is the only true christian, theerfor, evolutionists would go to hell since how often are they literalists?--SmithRob (talk) 01:22, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm a biblical literalist protestant, asking me if the pope is immune to going to hell is sorta silly. --SmithRob (talk) 01:15, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

No?--SmithRob (talk) 01:31, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
For biblical literalism, I would love to find a definite article in the greek in Acts 16:17. ὁδός hodos (strong's number G3598) seems to suggest that it is a way. Young's Literal Translation puts Acts 16:17 as "`These men are servants of the Most High God, who declare to us a way of salvation;'"[2] Or the NASB which has a nice little '*' in front of its 'the'[3]. So... going back on tangent somewhat... It appears that the authors didn't proclaim damnation with anyone who didn't agree with their world view (or at least, kept their minds open in removing people saying otherwise). Going off on another tangent, wp:Aghori is an interesting read about a sect of Hinduism that embraces the other half of the duality that one normally ascribes to ascetics. More than one way to enlightenment/salvation. It was interesting discussing religion with a Hindu, his take on conversion was "I hope you have a clearer understanding in your next life." No reason to trouble themselves or you in this life. --Shagie (talk) 04:14, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Stop Feeding The Ultimate Troll

I think it can be agreed, that Ken is out of control. It was only a matter of time before he broght beastiality in to his atheism nonsense. But more importantly, it brings nothing to CP but page views of people who think "Theres no fuckin way it says that" and us. And it seams to be working. Everytime he creates another one of these "insights" we comment about them, and he takes these comments and they stroke his ludicrous ego. Even though we think hes a parodist, or even doubt his existence, he FEEDS off it. Now I'm well aware that I'm not the first person to place the troll label on that "man" but I think its time we did somthing about him. Thats why we have to stop feeding the troll. I'm calling on a boycott of everything Ken Doll related, here, on the WIGO, everywhere. No matter how insane his pages are, no matter how inflamatory, we just stop. Who's with me?--Thunderstruck (talk) 12:11, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Actually no. Every page Ken creates is a further example of what dumb fucks US right-wingers are. –TeenageCumSlut Condemns electoral fraud at RationalWiki 12:15, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Only a complete moron would think that User:Conservative is representative of conservative views. Your argument is just about as reasonable as his recent contributions on bestiality: a small handful of atheists have suggested defenses of zoophilia (tied to their utilitarian ethics) and hence atheists want to fuck sheep. Similarly, Conservative writes batshit crazy articles, so conservatives are batshit crazy. Phiwum (talk) 12:23, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Conservative is best at getting Andy/Karajou/CP to show their true colors (basically, ignore the parts of reality they don't like, substitute their own). He's doing amazing work and we owe it to him to praise him. Thank you, User:Conservative. Occasionaluse (talk) 12:29, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Ken has outlasted both Robs and TK. He owns CP now - to the victor go the spoils. Spoils of which is the Schlafly reputation. Andy traded his name. Aceace
Really, Phiwum? I'd agree with you if there was an instance anywhere on CP of a sysop taking ken to task for his articles. As pointed out elsewhere on this page, Andy has defended the Homosexuality article on the radio.
The entire right wing of US politics is insane. Look at the bullshit spouted by Bachmann, Palin, Perry etc. When a crowd of right-wingers applaud the idea of killing 230+ people, even Ken's stuff starts to seem tame. –TeenageCumSlut Condemns electoral fraud at RationalWiki 12:37, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Ken's a troll that gets bigger the more he feeds. Notice how after he's created beastiality articles, other editors have equipped sword and shield (as well as their trusty Please Don't Ban Me +1 amulets) and strode into a futile battle against him, Andy's talkpage being the battlefield. Unfortunately, just like every other god in history, Andy will ignore it completely and do nothing, frustration crests, and Ken rolls a 2d20 and always rolls a perfect 40 troll response that just applies sandpaper to the wound. He actually thinks that his articles make an impact (as positive one at that), so he makes more when people start complaining. Other sysops, do nothing. CP in a nutshell that tends to repeat itself every so often. My opinion: FEED HIM. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 12:39, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── TeenageCumSlut, if you want to claim that User:Conservative shows how fucked up Conservapedia is, I couldn't argue with you. But Conservapedia is not representative of conservatism either. Your arguments really are analogous (albeit less insane) to what Ken is doing: Look at what some atheists do! See!!! Atheism is bad! Substitute Conservatism for Atheism and we really are getting your argument. If you want to dispute Conservatism, why not argue against its claims rather than against small groups of its proponents? Phiwum (talk) 12:47, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Try reading what I wrote rather than what you think I wrote. I never used the term "conservative", I used "right winger". Traditional conservative positions are expressed only by a tiny number of Republicans these days, and they get denounced as RINOs by the nutjobs. –TeenageCumSlut Condemns electoral fraud at RationalWiki 12:50, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Nonsense! The nutters make a lot of noise, sure, but they are hardly representative of right-wing politics as a whole. Your weird distinction between "conservatives" and "right-wingers" wasn't at all clear from your post.-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 12:57, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
I have to disagree with the OP. Ken is a symptom of everything that is wrong and dysfunctional with Conservapedia and why Schlafly's project is an utter failure. I say that the more Andy & Kara allow it to happen, the more we should urge him on. As much as Kara likes to bleat about liberals wanting to destroy them, it's far more satisfying to watch him sit back and allow one of his own to do it. I for one do not react to Ken's drivel with outrage. I say "Huzzah! Huzzah!" --PsyGremlinTala! 13:01, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
(EC) To TeenageCumSlut: The gist of my point stands. The various folks called right-wingers are a fairly diverse group and Conservapedia is not their spokesmen. Indeed, you suggest that the majority of Republicans are right-wingers. There are, therefore, more right-wingers in the U.S. than atheists. If Conservative's blatherings are ridiculous because he tars atheism on the grounds of what a few atheists write, then your comments are equally ridiculous. Let each person represent himself, rather than his group, and attack foolish ideas because they are foolish, rather than attacking their proponents.
But I've had my say and if you still don't see the similarity between your comments on right-wingers and Conservative's horrible articles, I guess we can drop it. No offense intended. Phiwum (talk) 13:04, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
I think we have to agree to disagree. While I agree that CP isn't any kind of spokesman for the right, and I'd also agree that most of Andy's inshites are too out-there even for the rest of the group, I believe CP's political stance is pretty representative. The low tax, anti-Obama, pro-Christian, anti-science crap is par for the course these days. When the views of what would previously have been considered a fairly right-wing guy like Romney are characterised as socialist, it's pretty clear that one wing has suddenly become much, much heavier than the other. I'm not claiming all Republicans are like this because they obviously aren't, but all the noise is coming from the right at the moment, and it sounds just like CP. –TeenageCumSlut Condemns electoral fraud at RationalWiki 13:21, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, if you can't see the similarity in the two arguments, there's not much I can do.
  • Here are some atheists defending bestiality. Atheists are stupid.
  • Here are some right-wingers running a pathetic wiki. Right-wingers are stupid.
Phiwum (talk) 14:57, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Okay, if you can't see that you're making a totally false equation, there's not much I can do. The second bullet is not what I'm saying, but since you evidently can't fucking read I can't be bothered correcting you. –TeenageCumSlut Condemns electoral fraud at RationalWiki 16:30, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Well from my limited point of view the right wing in the US are defined by the likes of Bachmann and Perry. Staunch Conservatives in this country, the UK, shake their heads when they read the rubbish that the gop now spout, and it IS the gop no matter what you may say Phiwum because the leaders of gop are too fucking scared to naysay bachmann, beck, perry and barton and so tacitly support it. I know few republicans in the US but I do know some who voted for bush, TWICE. And they are not voting for bachmann or perry. They may abstain or they may vote democrat but like it or not the shit ken dribbles over cp DOES represent a large section of 'conservative' thinking in the US Oldusgitus (talk) 17:17, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Oldus, I don't disagree that the Republicans have a lot to be embarrassed by. The fact that Bachman, Beck, etc., are so popular and that the former is treated as a serious candidate for President is shameful. But, to my mind, Conservapedia is not representative of anything. Ken is a simple-minded fool and the other sysops should be embarrassed by what he does online, but conservatives (or right-wingers) generally? Nah. Phiwum (talk) 19:16, 23 September 2011 (UTC)
Ken's descent into madness will continue no matter whether we pay attention to him or not. Conservapedia is his whole life, nothing we can do about that. The only one who could maybe get him to do something worthwhile instead would be Andy, if he banned Ken for life. But he'd probably just find another obscure website to waste his time with. The only real victim in this little drama is Andy, whose blog has now officially become Ken's personal playground. Oh well, he can't say nobody warned him.

Senator Harrison (talk) 03:05, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Hell it's Andy anyway, even if the story was debunked with more publicity than the original story got, he'd just ignore the second part.

[edit] Florida Straw Poll

I wonder what the reactionimg will be given that a pizza salesman beat Andy's (and TerryH's) anointed? –TeenageCumSlut Condemns electoral fraud at RationalWiki 23:00, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Who is Andy's anointed? In terms of the guys who are actually running he seems to favor Ron Paul, which makes no sense, as issues like legalizing drugs are anathema to Andy. Terry threw Paul under the bus a little while ago. He doesn't like Perry for some reason, and Mitt is obviously too liberal. Maybe Bachmann is the top pick? I think he might still be holding out for Christie. Then again, little about andy makes any sense. DickTurpis (talk) 00:14, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Andy and Replying to criticism

So I've been watching the latest round of Everyone vs User:Conservative and Andy has yet to reply to any of it which he is the same he did right before Rob was removed. Is there any good theories of why? I'm pretty sure he has had a chance to read it. My idea is that he thinks that if he gets rid of Ken then no one will contribute to his blog/wiki. Quazywabbit (talk) 16:03, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

There are a few possibilities:
  1. He genuinely believes that ignoring a problem makes it go away.
  2. The real business is going on behind the scenes.
  3. He doesn't give a fuck.
Occasionaluse (talk) 16:21, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
4. He simply doesn't know how to respond without making himself or CP look bad. He'd either have to come out with a specific defence of bestiality splashed all over his family friendly wiki, or he'd have to agree that Ken has overstepped the mark (which makes himself look bad too). He can't do either of them. X Stickman (talk) 16:35, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
I think he simply lacks any leadership qualities whatsoever and is unable to take control. Or put another he has not an ounce of ma-cheese-mo. StarFish (talk) 16:36, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
There is no theory. He's a pussy and the sysops have more control. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 16:59, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
He's stupid. He just looks at his page views (Main page: This page has been accessed 11,124,320 times.)and thinks he's winning. It's the likes of Ken's Krap that really pulls 'em in so he welcomes it, not seeing that 99.999999...% are either taking the piss or aghast. Scream!! (talk) 17:30, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Both X Stickman and StarFish are correct. Andy's pride has painted him into a corner. He will do anything to avoid a reposnse because no matter which way he goes, it will hurt. Either support Ken and lose any remaining credibility he has with social conservatives, or oppose Ken and admit to himself something his pride simply cannot handle, that he was wrong to allow this to happen in the first place. The fact it did happen in the first place is due to Andy's very poor leadership skills.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:27, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Also, Andy literally can't afford to lose any more of his inner circle (inner triangle now?), no matter how crazy they might be. At this point, they're irreplaceable and the ones he does have are rapidly losing interest. He must realise that once his last reliable sysop goes, there's no good reason even for the parodists to continue to play their game. CP will be done for. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:01, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Conscience? «-Bfa-» 19:54, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I have wondered if Andy keeps Ken around out of some kind of fear of what he'd do if he got kicked off, or generally out of pity. I don't think Andy is unaware of Ken's issues, I think he's just being stubborn as hell about acknowledging them, but even he must wonder what'd happen to Ken if he lost conservapedia. X Stickman (talk) 20:10, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

EC) He'd be back spamming loads o' sites under his 7432 pseudonyms - so there's something to thank Andy for. Scream!! (talk) 20:15, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Erm, you're endowing andy with some kind of empathy and intelligence in that comment. Personally I doubt he has much of either, and I'm not joking. I don't think andy has any kind of consideration towards his other human beings. He regards them simply as 'political' pawns in his religious power game. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:14, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Probably true for the majority of people, but unless someone deliberately goes against the party line (like Rob did), he must have *some* form of affection for the long time sysops, even if it's just a soldier-like "we're fighting the same war" thing. I can't accept that Andy is just plain stupid; he's arrogant, egotistical and blinded by his beliefs, but plain old stupid he isn't. He can't think that what Ken is doing is a good thing, even in terms of pure page hits. X Stickman (talk) 20:18, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
But look at how he treated his other former lieutenants: TK had been in close contact with him for years, yet when he suddenly stopped editing, he didn't make any attempts to find out what happened. And when he finally learned that TK had died (via RW, of course), all he did was to forbid any mention of this topic on CP. When Rob desperately tried to get his backing during his recent fight with Ken, he didn't even acknowledge that the whole issue existed, despite the fact that two of his long-term sysops were at each others' throats. He similarly refused to hear PJR's pleas, or those of any other serious editor being openly bullied by one of his senior admins. He's just totally aloof and afraid to personally engage any sort of conflict, even one he could decide with a single comment or click of his mouse due to his position on the wiki. Röstigraben (talk) 20:54, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
A little birdy told me that there's no evidence TK had any personal contact with Schlafly except in the email discussions groups and occasionally by email off the group. That Andy never said anything about it when TK publicly claimed to speak with him frequently is explainable by reasons already stated on this page. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:44, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Andy isn't stupid, intelligence isn't the issue here, it is a mixture of enormous pride and simply awful leadership skills. The latter has allowed this sort of thing to happen, the former keeps Andy from stepping in and solving the problem (because it would mean an admission of an error of judgement on his part to allow Ken to go on as he has in the first place).
There are sincere editors on CP, I was one. Heck I still have an account and thought of editing again just to inject some real science into the place. After Ken's bestiality spree, I can't possibly bring myself to edit on a wiki that allows him to go on inserting bizarre bestiality thoughts in all these non-related articles, destroying the credibility of innocent editors who wrote those articles in the first place.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:44, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Andy wants all the power of being the leader with none of the responsibility. He wants CP to say whatever he wants it to say on his pet issues, post without fear of revert, brag about page hits and speak publicly for CP. He however doesn't want to solve a dispute between Ken and Rob that goes on for over a week, on his fuckin' talk page no less. He doesn't want to do anything about Ken making his "encyclopaedia" into an even bigger joke. TK used this to become the de facto leader of CP. I'm kinda surprised another troll has filled in his spot yet. --Night Jaguar (talk) 23:59, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
I hate to say it, but no one else has TK's "leadership skills" --Opcn (talk) 00:04, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
No, and isn't that terrible (or perhaps hilarious, depending on your point of view)? The sysop with the best leadership ability (and one who still had fatal flaws) was most likely a deep parodist. Looking at the current sysops, none posses any leadership skills to any measurable degree and all posses flaws that are instantly detrimental if not out right disqualifies.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 02:16, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Not only a deep parodist, but one bent on destroying CP. At least in that respect, Ken has him beat. --Night Jaguar (talk) 02:20, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Well TK was the only person ever really involved with the leadership of the project that had any kind of leadership position in the real world wasn't he? --Opcn (talk) 03:49, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Andy loves a good flame war -- provided the conservative position wins. When things go sour, the banhammer is invoked. And he's saddled with sysops, Ken & Karajou, who can't argue their way out of a wet paper bag. These are the arguments Ken convinced Andy and others that reform threatened:
Many atheists, for example, do not accept a "middle ground." Many atheists accept nothing short of censorship of Christianity, such as censoring prayer in the classroom even when all the students want to pray.

There is no middle ground by the Nobel Prize committee, which insists that the award not be given to a critic of evolution, no matter how deserving.

So the lack of symmetry is a problem: conservatives are fine giving equal time to liberals, but many liberals are not fine giving equal time to conservatives.

By CP definition they are certainly trolls. Troll=bad=liberal=anyone who disagrees with anything on CP. Therefore they are ipso facto trolls merely for disagreeing with Ken.

[edit] What a well-deserving featured articleimg!

It's Elevatorgateimg! A beautifully crafted account of the horrid scandal involving pre-obese atheist Richard Dawkins. This wonderful piece of investigative journalism leaves no stone unturned and omits no detail of the lurid event — except, of course, what it was that Dawkins said and why it was so horrible. Well, no matter. The important facts (that Dawkins was once not very nice to a female audience member, that some people think Watson is a hypocrite for posing in a calendar and that there are more male than female atheists) are all there. Brilliant! Phiwum (talk) 21:26, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

All there and Ken took the initiative this time and wrote it like an article so for the most part it's riddled with factual errors that are his own rather than other peoples factual errors that he quoted. --Opcn (talk) 21:39, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Fantastic article! A+! I do like how for no reason he mentions that women are more religious than men. Therefore being religious must be a feminine trait. I guess that makes Ken a girly-boy lacking any machismo. DickTurpis (talk) 21:40, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Just another quality article from CP, they really keep 'em coming. But "In 2011, Richard Dawkins was widely criticized within the atheist community and in various press outlets for his insensitive comments made to atheist Rebecca Watson about an incident which occurred in an elevator." made me wonder, what exactly is "widely criticized" for Ken? AFAIR it was something like a 50:50 split. --ʤɱ constructivist 21:42, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Keep in mind the UN Security Council has 15 members, so it couldn't have been a 50:50 split exactly. I recall it was something like 7:6, with Portugal and India abstaining. DickTurpis (talk) 21:51, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Sorry Dick, I think you misspelled ma-cheese-mo WeaselNation (talk) 22:02, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
(EC) I find it funny User:Conservative takes Watson's rather than Dawkins' side. I would assume User:Conservative is not much of a feminist, which would make me suspect that, if there was no potential to attack Dawkins here, he would have been more likely to favour Dawkins' viewpoint. Zack Martin HolyMaratreanSigil.png 22:05, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
I only see two options if Dawkins wasn't involved: 1. Ken ignores it. 2. Ken calls Watson a radical feminists that wants to censor the speech of free men. --ʤɱ pervert 22:27, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
(EC) So what's the actual origin of that article? I didn't think Ken could simply invent something like that, so a quick google search yields these articles. I take it she mentioned something about not liking propositioning, and Dawkins (or a commenter using that name; I'm always sceptical when someone on the internet comments randomly like that) posted a potentially harsh reply. Not to demean the situation, but that's it, right? άλφαΤαλκ 22:10, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
No one disputes it was the man himself. He wrote a satirical response, comparing Watson's plight to oppressed women in Iran and Saudi Arabia... Zack Martin HolyMaratreanSigil.png 22:37, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
She made a carping response about getting attention from some guy in the elevator because she's an unattractive man hating lesbian and Dawkins called her out on it, as he should have. Not much of a story, really. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:41, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I like how there's an Elevatorgate articleimg and an Aftermath of Elevatorgate articleimg with, basically, exactly the same content apart from one small section at the bottom, Dawkins' picture removed, and a picture of some 'Hong Kong Christians' added to it. Why have one article when you can have two with the simple use of Ctrl-C & Ctrl-V? (talk) 12:29, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

That's because Ken thinks quantity is better than quality, especially where Google is concerned. I also love Ken's faux moral outrage at Elevatorgate, given he's a sysop on a site where the official position would be "Why wasn't that bitch at home baking cookies?" --PsyGremlinTala! 12:41, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

I have no doubt that they will return with more ideas about where else to copy-and-paste the exact same content. Of course, the funny part is not so much the shenanigans of this Ken persona, but Andy's reaction to it all.--Xyr (talk) 13:20, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Sadly, I can only see Andy's reaction being two polar opposites: He's either face-palming and cursing himself for not being able to control Ken, or masturbating furiously at the thought of all the record-breaking page views Ken is generating. There is no middle ground. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 13:24, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Seriously, appending "gate" to absolutely everything is pretty annoying to me. Is that in vogue in the media, too, just to draw parallels between Watergate and almost everything else? I've rarely heard the term "Climategate" outside of CP, I don't believe I've ever heard Jobsgate outside of there, and I doubt "Elevatorgate" exists outside of Ken's mind. άλφαΤαλκ 16:09, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

[edit] I think Ken is a bot and I think I know how it works

The first part generates simple "X and Y" pairs. Then whoever is operating the bot picks a few he/she/it finds humorous and writes the actual article. The operator then feeds the article into the bot program, which posts the article to CP over a preset time period. The genius part of this program is that it also probably makes random small edits and to Ken's articles. This explains why he always takes 45 edits to do anything, and the oddly repetitive nature of his articles. The reason he protects everything he writes is to keep the articles in a known state to keep the bot software happy. In the User and Talk spaces, I suspect he's fully automated most of the time, explaining his stock non-answers. The subpages in is own User page space are a testing ground for when he updates the bot software. --Roofus (talk) 00:45, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

The edit's aren't random. The content comes out of a guided generative grammar; it's very similar to the mechanism the Postmodernism Generator uses. The string of shit edits is a three-step process. First you run the generator not one time but several times so you have a few versions that are grammatically coherent but semantically distinct. Then you apply a Markov chainer to it to create plausible typos. Then you ut all your versions in a random sequence (but make sure the sequence ends with one of the typo-free base versions) and treat them as a sequence of LCSS problems. You use insertions and deletions of the same tokens that go into the Markov chain as your atomic operations and the 1988 Myers algorithm to find the edit paths. It's an unholy jumble of perl, shell script, and makefiles that falls apart if you look at it wrong, but it actually works most of the time. Mountain Blue (talk) 07:01, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

(Well, we probably agree on some aspects of it, but certainly disagree on others.) I agree that Conservapedia at times displays authoritarian streak, but this instance is not an example of that. Zack Martin HolyMaratreanSigil.png 07:54, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
So SamC's explaniation of why he made what was a 'juvenile' post is to you irrelevant to the point in question? Are you deliberately being thick or doing naturally? You are sucking andy and ken, you are crawling up their arses to try to appear reasonable instead of admiting that SamC made a post which was DELIBERATELY juvenile in order to highlight the double standards that you are now supporting. Would you care to comment on ken now blocking SamC for the heinous crime of inserting a fully referenced fact into one of kens piles of dribbling shit thta you support and then calling ken on his reversion?

Godwin? No one broke godwins law. Hitler wasn't the only fascist dude. calling you a fascist =\= Godwin violation. Aceace 09:43, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
I think if you were one of Mussolini's or Franco's victims, you would consider comparing arguing about whether someone should be banned from a website to fascism to be in extremely bad taste. The principle that applies here is basically the same as that which applies in the case of the Nazis. And we have already seen references to Hitler in this discussion, from Longbow above, and the rhetorical use of the term "jackboots" originates in reference to Nazi Germany.

So I read this section and it arouses more questions than answers. If Maratreanism doesn't support beastiality, what religion does (just wondering)? If Maratrean thinks Sam should be blocked for inserting something factual (assuming), why stay silent against Conservative? Is Maratrean female :3? I'm dumb, what's so fascist about the statement made on Sam, besides he being blocked ideologically? I seriously lost THE GAME on this section.

I don't know what the big deal is. A user added snark to an article and got a 3 month block for it. Par for the course at CP. Nothing to see here. DickTurpis (talk) 16:57, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
So is Maratrean one of Andy's students? I can only assume so since he hasn't been banned from CP based on the user naming rule. Ego (talk) 20:49, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't know what religion supports bestiality. That is an interesting question. User:Conservative does actually have a valid point, in that to my knowledge, belief that bestiality is ethical and should be legal, seems to be more common among atheists/agnostics/etc than among others, although I don't get the impression it is a common viewpoint among anybody. But, if you take the viewpoint that all sexuality is OK so long as it is non-harmful and consensual, then that sex with animals is sometimes OK, would be the logical conclusion, although I guess quite a few people here are trying to avoid logic. The only way out, is to decide there is more to sexual ethics than non-harm and consent, something many people don't want to do. However, that said, he goes rather overboard in his presentation on it, goes after PZ Myers' family, and seems to be drawing some conclusion "some atheists are OK with bestiality, therefore all atheists are evil/crazy/whatnot", which really doesn't hold water - I think pro-bestiality atheists, and pro-bestiality people in general, are at least somewhat mistaken, but I can't fault them that much when they are just following their basic principles to their logical conclusions, even if I think those basic principles are faulty. As to Sam's contribution, at least User:Conservative is posting what he really believes, but Sam was just posting nonsensical parody. An article says that, they thought that bestialists were mainly people of low intelligence, yet they found people of average and high intelligence engaging in it too. Sam seemed to be arguing from that, therefore, smart people are bestialists, so bestiality is good? Now, User:Conservative is responsible at times for similar leaps of questionable logic, but at least User:Conservative, as I take it, genuinely believes those leaps, while I'm quite sure Sam was just engaging in parody. Zack Martin HolyMaratreanSigil.png 21:48, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
User:Conservative is a nonsensical parody of a human being. Sam's making a (valid) point about a maniac with a bit of satire is not even close to the same level as ranting about ponies and flying kitties on a website that seeks to be taken seriously within the conservative movement. --YossarianSpeak, Memory 22:48, 24 September 2011 (UTC)
Mara seems to conflate ethical with legal. A lot of sexuality law is not even concerned with ethics it's more a case of personal mores. I'm not "pro-bestiality" but as a liberal (UK usage) I don't think that sexuality is an area where governments should get involved except for the protection of the vulnerable. On the other hand I see a lot of what I would regard as unethical behaviour which is entirely legal and causes society more misery and harm than some perverts shagging a few sheep.

"Mara seems to conflate ethical with legal" - no I don't. To quote myself, "However, while I think bestiality is immoral, I don't think this is a proper function for the law to try to enforce that moral rule. Non-sadistic bestialists/zoophiles need some help, not legal persecution" Zack Martin HolyMaratreanSigil.png 08:40, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

[edit] Andy's sanity

This is actually a serious question, not a slur. When doing some edit last night, i linked from here to CP's talk on the "conservative bible", specifically about the word, "Word". It was, as with most links, the middle of the conversation, but clearly Andy had made a pronouncement that "logos" should be truth cause "Word" no longer meant "word", 400 years later (than what, i don't know.) As i kept reading, he insisted that arguments to the contrary were just closed minded. he also was challenged on the whole teens have made the most impact, shit. anyhow, what struck me is how with each and every statement, he seemed to reinforce his random pronouncement. And it seemed, reading it happen like that, to be very very very strange. like mentally ill strange. like not just joking that you're living divorced from reality but really being so. In all seriousness, is this man sane? Cause it was truly freaky to read that serries of talk pages (I'm hesitant to call it a conversation, as he never actually talks with others, he just agrees or disagrees.)--Pink mowse.pngGodotThe Peyote God awaits 14:10, 25 September 2011 (UTC)

That would be 400 years after the King James Version of 1611.--Xyr (talk) 14:15, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
I think if Andy suffers from anything it's extreme narcissism coupled with a very singular view of the world. This results in him making pronouncements (or creating an encyclopaedia) about things of which he knows nothing. However, once queried, he cannot back down and digs in his heels, grabbing at anything that justifies his position to his mind, no matter how insane it is to others.
There's also a degree of social ineptitude. We always laugh at Ken, but AFAIK Andy hasn't been away from CP for more than a day, in the 4 years I've been here. Even if he goes on holiday - of which there's been no sign, even in the SD groups - he carries on editing CP. As WfG pointed out, Andy doesn't hold conversations, even with his sysops. He'll make a statement and then either agree or disagree, or say nothing. He clearly hates conflict situations and freezes at the thought of having to be involved in one.
Thus he's the tragic combination of somebody who insists his POV is correct, but lacks the social (and communication?) skills to firstly convey that point and secondly to convince others that he's right. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 14:23, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
I'm not as long around as Psy, only a year about now, but I think he is mentally sane. He's just really really troubled. He grew up in a house with a very strong mother, but was told the complete opposite was good. He is told to be a strong man, not a sissy and all that, but when his mother tells him he is going to study law he does. Around the same time he has to have realized that he doesn't know it all. But as intelligence is the only things he has, he has to keep up the illusion that he knows it all. In with a lifelong frustration comes a cultural hatred of anything different from him - especially everybody who was able to tell his or her "oppressors" where to stick it (atheists, liberals from conservative family, gayz) - so all the frustration he feels about his family, his mother and his un-freedom he puts into that. He doesn't blame himself or his mother for it, he blames the liberals, atheists and gayz for his misery and for being happier than he is.
And then Obama. That black guy who is everything he hates in one person (free, happy, self-confident, good-looking) comes along. That guy is so popular and Andy is a nobody. 17-years later that guy becomes President, something Andy wanted to be to make mommy proud of him, now he really goes batshit. Now he has everything he isn't infront of him every single day for at least 4 years. Now he has to prove even stronger how awesome he is: he doesn't need to lead, he is above that. Yes, what Ken writes is funny, No, Rob is disruptive force. Obama keeps losing and losing, everybody who cooperates with him is a traitor to the real cause. The others are influencing everything. Everybody is against him! The whole world is against him, everybody is wrong excpt him. He can't be wrong, he can never be wrong — that wouldn't make mommy proud.
If it wasn't real, it would be a damn good novel. --ʤɱ heretic 14:53, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
As one human being to another, if he has some disorder or retardation of the mind, yes I have a concern for his well-being. Same goes for Ken.
As the owner of CP who thinks Ken is an asset and makes great contributions, he's a fucking retard, to which I have no sympathy towards. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 15:09, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
It's been my suspicion for some time that Andy's sanity has been slowly slipping away. I believe we have indications that in his more formative years he was conservative and all that, but not in the batshit nuts way he is now. I honestly don't think he could get any sort of respectable score on the LSATs if he were to take them today, let alone get into or through law school. The man has no sense of logic whatsoever, and he can't have always been that way. There really has to be something mentally wrong with him. DickTurpis (talk) 15:56, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
My own feelings on it are that Andy's enthusiasm for CP has long gone and now he just doesn't care enough to make valid points, or enough to put effort into making them. All of the stuff he comes up with isn't that unusual, for example, it's stuff that any of us would come up with for a few seconds. But where we realise "wait a minute, that is dumb and here is why" and then don't actually tell anyone we thought it, Andy just thinks "eh" and writes a post. Then his arrogance kicks in and he feels he has to defend his brain farts rather than just say "yeah it was just something that popped into my head and I didn't think it through that much". Either that or, I guess, he's just using CP as his diary and writing down whatever pops into his head. He seems almost surprised when he has to defend his claims sometimes.

[edit] Andy explains TK's de-sysoping

Andy doesn't know how to influence his sysops. He selects them as bodyguards to watch his back, but can't control them when they come up with hairbrained schemes, such as Karajou notifying the FBI. He opposed the idea, but couldn't articulate it clearly on the mailing list. Karajou misread the sentiment and acted unilaterally. Of course it had the unintended consequence of making the whole project look stupid, but he never reprimanded Karajou or publicly divorced himself from the idea. He just showed blind loyalty to what was perceived as a consensus cause nobody had the balls to say it was a stupid idea. We've seen this repeated a hundred times. He expects blind loyalty and he gives blind loyalty in return. His desysoping of TK was because "Several Sysops insisted to me privately, with lots of alleged evidence, that TK was an enemy." Deja Vu. He only gave in cause he felt outnumbered. nobsabandon hope all ye who enter here. 19:13, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
Nah. That wasnt why. See this: http://cp.noym.net/bf4601def8a51047 "Why I suspended your Sysop privileges".

(talk) 02:40, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
Conservaleaks is missing the discussion thread started by Andy entitled, TK blocking explained for new members, which is reproduced at the start of that linked thread. Note: "1. He antagonized and nearly drove away some of our very best editors." Everyone, EVERYONE, knows "our very best editors" were and remain Rationalwiki parodists. Andy knows this, and Andy knew this when he wrote that. Why isn't this standard applied to User:Conservative and Karajou? "2. He blocked, without justification, many new editors..." Same question. "6. He seemed to rely more on RationalWiki for information than our own site." Well, duh, ever hear of 90/10, Andy? nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 19:19, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
News flash: TK drove away a lot more than RW parodists. In fact, RW parodists were probably a small minority of those he drove away - since parodists agree with Andy on almost everything, they're the few sorts who were generally welcomed. (Does the name Bugler ring a bell?) Those few from this site who tried to honestly and in good faith improve some of the most ridiculous aspects of CP were the ones TK banned in droves. DickTurpis (talk) 19:42, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
That's basically what I said, isn't it? Yet Conservative & Karajou do daily exactly what got TK de-sysoped, as per Andy's own explanation. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 20:17, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
No, that's not what you said. You said "'our very best editors' were and remain Rationalwiki parodists." I said RW parodists were not the ones who were blocked by TK, and were only the "best" editors if by "best" you mean "those intent on destroying CP through unrestrained sycophancy". Was Bugler ever one of your best editors? DickTurpis (talk) 00:16, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
Bugler was a sysop or editor with enhanced rights, AFAIK. I never knew him or interacted with him. I'm referring to common, lowly editors; Andy has known since Spring 2007 that, with very very few exceptions, the only consistent, knowledgeable, and literary editors he's had have been, and continue to be, Rationalwiki parodists. Very few, other than FOIA and one or two others, who have not been RW parodists, quit over the lack of any semblance of a collaborative interactive community. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 01:52, 27 September 2011 (UTC)
I think our disagreement arises over the word "parodist". If you're talking about "consistent, knowledgeable, and literary editors" being folks from RW, then they're not the parodists. They're the honest editors from this site who actually in good faith tried to improve CP by removing the most blatant erroneous and, let's just call them "Kenesque", aspects of the site to make it into the semblance of a Conservative, but not batshit insane, encyclopedia-style project. That's not parody (although some might have misrepresented their political views), but acting in reasonably good faith. That parodists are the Buglers, the JacobBs, the DouglasAs, etc. They were never the best editors by anyone standards other than Andy's, who cared more about blocking dissenting opinion than building anything resembling an encyclopedia. DickTurpis (talk) 02:06, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── This is what Andy said on the matter July 24 over the blocking of User:BobSherman (alleged to be RW user SoCal) which Ken DeMyer transformed from a discussion over blocking accountability into a personal attack on me:

As a general matter, "parodists" -- a misnomer to some extent -- can be hurtful to the site if they are allowed to edit many entries. What can happen, and what has happened in some cases in the past, is that this can lead to bragging on other sites about how a parodist supposedly fooled our site.

But see, while I was proposing a definition of "parody", Ken was calling me a useful idiot of an atheist website. And none of the sysops following that private mailing list discussion ever attempted to help me or Andy out by defining "parodist." They are just so overwhelmed with hatred of Rationalwiki and anybody connected with the site, even Andy caves to their pressure for fear they'd leave as well. nobsEmpty Recycle Bin 02:21, 27 September 2011 (UTC)

The weirdest thing about that is that that's exactly what fundie Christians shouldn't do. They have a set of ideals and should stick to that set and judge everything from that set. Instead we have people pledging blind loyalty.

If anybody was in agreement that RW editors could be contributors to CP, it was Andy. He's said as much numerous times on the discussion lists. But Ken, Karajou, TerryH, and lesser extent DMorris and Jpatt, they are dead set against it, and regard unblocking of certain editors "appeasement". They convinced him allowing certain RW editors back in was unChristian, proAtheist, and a threat to an anti-evolutionist ever winning the nobel prize. Such is the level of discourse in Conservaleaks. nobsabandon hope all ye who enter here. 19:28, 25 September 2011 (UTC)
