## Atheists (of Cthulhu)

Am I the only one who missed this?--Antifly 22:17, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

One suspects that someone's taking a leetle bit of piss.   ContribsTalk 22:19, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

##  Pinochet

Am I the only one who found the fawning over Pinochet made them want to throw up? I can't believe the crap he is writing. And as for Ed, I have never heard a leftist defend the murders by Castro and Guevara, but I am only 25 so it is probably the times I live in. But Pinochet was good and the leftist smeared him? Isn't this the sort of revisionist history crap the Chompsky comes out with for Pol Pot? I was watching a documentary on Opus Dei, and when there leadership started talking about the good old days under Pinochet I lost any sympathy I had for them in the attacks by Brown in The Da Vinci Code. Also they are conveniently over looking the fact that socialist government in Chile was voted in and Pinochet overthrew the democratically elected government. $\approx$$\pi$ 23:35, 31 August 2008 (EDT)

No, I also wanted to puke. Republicans have no problem with brutal dictators, as long as he's Christian and conservative. δλερνερ διαλέγομαι | συνεισφέρω 23:40, 31 August 2008 (EDT)
Correction - the far-right nutjobs that would fit right in at CP have no problem with brutal dictators, as long as he's Christian and conservative, same as they uphold the idea of democratically elected governments - unless those governments are a bit too socialist. More moderate Republicans would find that just as nuts as you do. 92.16.51.127 23:49, 31 August 2008 (EDT)
Bunch of numbers, you made me feel better by saying that. Thankyou. $\approx$$\pi$ 00:14, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Thatcher (spit) was a big fan of Augusto, say no more!   ContribsTalk 00:46, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Oh, hey, you have that spitting thing, too? Barikada 02:07, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Spit! And I made the pretty "heart" for teh assfly & his bff, Pinochet. PS, I dislike authoritarianism from the left and right. Um, I don't like dictators. ħuman 02:19, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I have that with Reagan (spit), too. Thatcher (twitch) is slightly less familiar to me. Anyway, yeah, the Pinochet (glare) thing. I love when Ed (...) loses his veneer of geniality and explodes with random accusations that have nothing to do with anything. --YossieSpring in Fialta 03:28, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

<unindent> I have a theory why Andy likes Pinochet. The CIA was involved in overthrowing the democratically elected President Salvador Allende, the first Marxist to ever be democratically elected to high office, this was in 1973 during the Nixon administration, so, it must have been good, thus, Pinchet was good. This fits well with the way Andy thinks. δλερνερ διαλέγομαι | συνεισφέρω 03:50, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

This reminds me, CP really needs an article on Operation Condor. -Judas Reward 03:54, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Remember that right now Schlafly is theorizing about Orwell being a conservative. As somebody put it with Bush and Hitler, regarding Pinochet, Castro, Che, Pol Pot, et al., it's the same shit, just different assholes. --JJ4eGot milk? 09:05, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I know exposing parody is bad, but what with all the Orwell stuff going on over there can this little gem by Bungler really be ignored? --Kels 09:16, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
As vocal against him as I have been, I like him, for example here, when he doesn't jump against innocent CP editors, RW trolls or his fellow parodists. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 09:27, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

##  Epic lulz

This is just perfect. I'm actually involved in one of the diffs provided :D I can't say who I am in the Land of Conserawackia or they'll pwn me and report me to the FBI (which is their way of saying their mommies) but I am a "conservative, God-fearing" user on there. So keep this going, even if it is just for the epic lulz -

IP sig removed - don't ask.   ContribsTalk 00:51, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks for giving me some lulz on my b-day. PWN'd! Candlewick 09:16, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Actions have consequences. weaseLOId~ 09:28, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Cheater.
Hey, IP -- use Tor. Jellyfish!I like red links 09:33, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Please, someone tell me what this Epic lulz is and where to find diffs. I must be missing the obvious here - it wouldn't be the first time. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 09:41, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I'm not exactly sure. The user who wrote the above note (anonymously using their IP address) is obviously socking on CP & involved in some of the stuff on WIGO, but I don't know under what name. CP sysop NathanG was watching us & has blocked that IP - see the block log linked above, currently fourth one down, 09:14, quotes '"Epic Lulz" - Thanks for the tip' so obviously watching this page. weaseLOId~ 09:49, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Ah! I saw that NathanG's block and I thought it referred to something specific happening over there. Thanks, Weaseloid. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 09:53, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
*sigh* so once again, one of the goon squad has blocked somebody there for something they said on another site. The fact that it was an IP could mean that more than one person is blocked too. Way to go Nate. --PsyGremlinWhut? 10:15, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
It's Nate's birthday after all. Won't we let him party with a cake, some presents and a few blocks? Editor at CPLiar at RP! 10:17, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
It's one of the many ways in which CP is hypocritical, they try to expunge us from the records but they're all (Hi Jinx!) logged in here watching like hawks Silver Sloth 10:35, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

(unindent) It truly does not matter what other people do on other sites. Part of the block policy is not to block users on their activities outside of CP. RAAAAH! Irony Meter redlining! Initializing hard liquor counter-balance! NorsemanWassail! 10:38, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Must be very frustrating for them, seeing us saying what they'd like to say on their own site. Perhaps they could sign up and speak their minds without fear of permablocks by ego-tripping sysops. Please join us. We have goats! Totnesmartin 10:43, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
1. I'm not a sysop, just really close to it (immunity and block/upload/edit rights)
2. The user foolishly used his/her IP to "brag" about socking/vandalism, s/he deserved it, eh? The user didn't say anything to offend me or CP on this site, so I didn't block the user for "outside activities". Candlewick 13:32, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, unless you can provide evidence of the vandalism or socking (the anon IP didn't say that they had multiple accounts or had actually committed vandalism) then you are hypocritically blocking for things said on another site. I just hope they're not supplying Kool-Aid at your birthday bash because you seem to be slipping into the dark side. GenghisOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 18:08, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I would agree with you, Nate, if the user had actually admitted to socking/vandalism, but he didn't and could very well be, say, the guy who wrote stuff on the "Best Concepts to Teach Teenagers" essay or the guy Andy complimented and incited to bash liberals. At this point the only thing we know (unless you asked somebody to run Checkuser on him or something) is that he knows about rationalwiki and was involved in something he founds funny. Either way, happy birthday! NightFlarei haz a talk page. 19:31, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Nope, I don't drink anything, ever.. except if I'm sick or about to get sick, then I drink "wooder".
Meh, alright. I'll make a note of it, but I won't unblock the IP because then it will raise an eyebrow or two at CP... putting my reputation at jeopardy. I'm learning ever so slowly, the opposite of how I was in school. Candlewick 22:21, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Nah, I'm not the sockpuppet you've been talking about. I'm just a user on the site who contributes. Anyway, don't remove my IP address this time. If those whackjobs want to block this IP again, let them; it goes against their rules of not blocking because of off-wiki remarks. I bolded it so the monitoring CP sysops could see it clearly. While this won't be the first time it'll happen, it will be nice to see what their reasoning is for blocking me. Oh well. 75.169.211.214 22:58, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Oh, btw, look at NathanG's reasoning for blocking Sockofames: "Personal remarks: swearing is prohibited.. I think". Sigh

## Ossification

Watch out, Andy is doing "science" again...--Antifly 10:52, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

A new Conservapedia insight... Maybe Andy finally came to his senses and selfdiagnosed the problem? Editor at CPLiar at RP! 10:53, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Where is the curve in all that? $\approx$$\pi$ 19:43, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

## Genius!

Oh, Bugler, bravo. Bra-VO. He'll go for it, too. Watching Bugler at work is like watching a concert pianist. --Phentari 11:07, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

And he did! I find it hilarious that Andy doesn't even know when he started his own blog! --Kels 11:18, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Even we know that! --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 11:21, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
November, huh? What would life be like if he'd decided to be productive and done NaNoWriMo instead? --Kels 11:32, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
We'd have an unholy abomination of a novel as damaging to the sanity of those who attempted to read it as the Necronomicon. Fortunately, egregious errors in spelling, grammar, and punctuation would render it illegible to the casual reader. --Phentari 11:34, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Someone has given it too him. He doesn't let go of his ideas easily does Andy? $\approx$$\pi$ 19:51, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

##  Karajou vs. PJR, round whatever

Perhaps not WIGO-worthy, but Karajou resurrects a few day old issue (which we talked about earlier) just to insult DLerner and smack PJR down. It's an interesting acknowledgment of the unspoken sysop hierarchy, and I anxiously await PJR's response. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 12:10, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

OH!!!! The throwdown gets a little more interesting! The stakes are raised! --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 12:13, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
And then comes the Holy Crap! WIGO entry. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 12:36, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
And Karajou is down! But is he out? We're just waiting on the 10 count. 10... 9...
Boxing commentary aside, how much denial is it going to take to make Karajou look like the good guy in this situation (which is surely how they'll spin this)? I mean, he just took his ball and left. This can't reflect well on him. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 12:39, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
(conflict) And in an Inverse Schlafly Reversal, Karajou blanks and protects their talk page and leaves. So... Karajou didn't have the authority to demand that PJR leave Conservapedia then? --Toiretni 12:40, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
My call is there was a brief, furious exchange of emails, someone (Andy, likely) said that was too much, and Karajou threw a tantrum. We'll see the spin really get going in the next day or so. Prediction: The Koward will be back after burning his talk page, everyone will act as if nothing happened, but there will be prickliness at PJR in general for calling other sysops on their shit. He might even decide it's not worth the effort in the end and quietly wander off himself. --Kels 12:44, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Cheek! Who does he think he is? ME?   ContribsTalk 12:47, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Kara retired!! [2] Candlewick 12:49, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Nice reaction time there, old boy. =3 --Kels 12:51, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Alternate WIGO:
Karajou: Rabbit season!
PJR: Duck season!
Karajou: Rabbit season!
Karajou: Duck season!
*BANG* --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 12:52, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I for one am not sorry to see that petulant child slink off into the sunset. His reply to PJR was pure Kajagoogoo, all bully and bluster. Alas, somehow I don't think we've seen the last of him. I wonder how Andy the Admin is gong to respond to this shit storm? I'm guessing he's already pulled down the hatch... although I'm sure the wires are humming behind the scenes. Good for you PJR - now if you can convince Ed and Andy to leave, there might be some hope for that little blog. --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:53, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I'm just hoping PJR doesn't back down for the sake of unity or some nonsense. I'm guessing Andy's safely hidden under his bed or something at this point, hoping it all goes away. --Kels 12:59, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
He could make it all go away by telling sysops they can't just go around demanding things impromptu. Peon, you will talk to me before making any edits to math articles! Peon, you will complete this writing assignment! Peon, you will never criticize me in public! --Toiretni 13:12, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

...and now CP has crashed (or is it just me?) Fretfulporpentine 13:14, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Oh, the big hypocrite. He's just victimizing himself, now that PJR is not on good terms with teh Assfly. --JJ4eGot milk? 13:15, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
EC) side note: Karajou let sysops have an e-mail addy not users though.
Wonder if the indirect GUN reference was intended by our favourite parodist: "We need people of his calibre here." :Bungler.   ContribsTalk 13:18, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I was going to propose to Bungler to take Kara's place, but I'm IP banned now :P Editor at CPLiar at RP! 13:26, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

I've screengrabbed K's talk page, just in case he does delete it. I'll upload it to here (hopefully as text, otherwise an image of the page) if anyone wants me to. Totnesmartin 13:37, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Got it: Image:Karajou takes ball goes home.png --Toiretni 13:39, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Lovely. Also saves me farting about with a 787x10875 picture, which would probably make Roxio Photosuite pass out. Totnesmartin 14:02, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Sweetness. Let's hope that Karajou took a sufficiently "him or me" stance with Andy for pride to forbid him to slink back. If I had to put money on it, though, I'd go with Kels' prediction. --Robledo 13:47, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

I'm sure Karajou will be back. The conversation was probably like: Andy: Look, above all, I don't want any of my "good" guys leaving. Please stop demanding each other leave. Karajou: Oh yeah? If wanting to keep everyone here makes you spineless, then fine! I'm leaving. (but for really petty and theatrical reasons, which means I'm going to be back tomorrow) --Toiretni 13:55, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Is there any serious doubt that he's coming back? It's just immature temper tantrum bullshit. He'll be back, they'll never speak of it again, but there will always be an undercurrent of distrust and anger. 'Cause remember, Jesus said "forgive" but he didn't say "forget!" --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 14:02, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Well, Jesus also said sumpin about "love thy neighbour" and "turn the other cheek", but do we ever see much of that? ĴαʊΆʃÇä₰ would rather be hated for who he is than loved for who he is not
Clearly you're reading a Liberal sentiment that was inserted into the Bible after the fact, in the same way the Adulteress leftist propaganda was. After all, God is obviously a Conservative and would never allow anything that could be used to embarrass Conservatives into His Holy Book! --Kels 14:09, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I have little doubt (but much hope) that he'll be back before long. Have any of these quits-in-a-huff departures ever held? I guess DanH, but it hasn't been long and I wouldn't be surprised if he returned too. The longest absence for a big wheel is RobS, and he just disappeared, he never resigned. DickTurpis 14:07, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
When people leave for other reasons in their life (their boss/gf/wife tells them to knock off the web surfing), they tend to do it quietly, and it has a higher chance of sticking. When they leave in a really visible way like this, and especially if they don't give any substantive reason for why they have problems with the site, they tend to be back in short order. --Toiretni 14:10, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Still, I don't think DanH will be back. He's been gone for 2 1/2 months, and Andy staunchly refuses to fix the reason he left (unlike Croc's similar retirement). Hopefully, he's gotten enough distance to really see CP for what it is. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 14:13, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

This is such good news, it deserves its very own template:

Ding! dong! The witch is dead!

Huzzah! The wicked witch Karajou is dead!
The denizens of Munchkinland Rationalwiki will be partying tonight!

One dickhead down, only a handful more to go. --JeevesMkII 14:14, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Oh Bohdan you know us too well. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 14:25, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Maybe if Karajou comes back because of that, we can then change everything else on CP using reverse psychology? 'YAY! They're not deleting the page on Affirmative Action Presidents!' -Judas Reward 14:32, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
The fact that I know that Kara only imitates JM's "OH NOES! I LEAVE! FOREVER! BECAUSE OF PJR!" drama whoring takes all the fun out of this (for me). :( Seriously, can't that guy discuss like a sane human being? The moment his powertripping runs into a speedbump, he hits the Drama Button. --Sid 14:31, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
In order to discuss something in a sane manner, you have to be prepared to acknowledge at least the possibility that the other part could be right. Karajou is far too insecure to do that. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 15:43, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Is it just me, or is Bodhan often doing stuff that'll harm CP, like asking the Koward to come back, blocking legit users, or encouraging obvious censorship? --Kels 14:41, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

He's kind of like Loki, he gets his lulz from both sides. --JeevesMkII 14:48, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Is that legal in Denmark? --Kels 15:27, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
It's COMPULSORY!!  ContribsTalk 15:32, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, we have a long tradition of that. Such as during the Napoleonic Wars. Instead of allying with one or the other like everyone else, Denmark managed for years to get their lulz from both the British and Napoleon. Of course, in the end, the British got fed up with it, so they beat us up and took our ships away. But that's another story. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 15:40, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Thought Kels had an other both sides in mind, but that's probably my pornograph working overtime.   ContribsTalk 15:53, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I think I had a pornograph, back in the 80's. I keep all my HenryS/AKjeldsen slash on a flash drive now. --Kels 16:25, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Drive it home, someone spam the reports of his abuse, nail the coffin shut! :p (Y'know what I think? Karajou couldn't bully PJR, even after that threatening statement. Because of ONE instance he couldn't abuse his power, he left in a trail of piss. He just couldn't get his way, what a crying bitch.) NorsemanWassail! 15:31, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Hrm, I was just totting up who really needs to go to make Conservapedia somewhat sane, or at least dead, which might be the same thing. Really, only Crock o'shite comes to mind. I'd say Bugler too, but I'm almost certain he's a parodist. I kind of hope he fills the dead man's shoes and becomes a sysop so he can fulfil whatever dastardly plan he has hatched. Of course, really to achieve full sanity Andy would have to go. Sadly, that probably won't happen any time soon. --JeevesMkII 15:43, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Andy and Ed would basically have to go. Croc should too, but since he doesn't edit anything he's not as significant; he'd just make the entire site a link farm to conservative blogs. Ken would likely need to go, though he could be kept for comic effect. Jinx is as bad as the rest of them. Bugler can stay, since he's a confirmed parodist. He'd have to get to the finale of his grand scheme soon, though. Problem is I'm not even sure he knows what it is. He may be so deep undercover that's he's gone rouge. DickTurpis 16:50, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
He's gone rouge? Do we have the photographs? :D --JeevesMkII 17:07, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Sorry, Wikipedia in-joke that I guess hasn't taken off here. DickTurpis 17:43, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

LEST WE FORGET. GenghisOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 18:26, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Yeah. While I think champagne is definitely in order, if only to celebrate the spectacle, I think it is important to remember that the jerky one threw a very similar fit before and came slinking back within days. He's definitely not strong on follow through except for reflexive jerkiness and bullying of course. Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 09:38, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

### Wait a minute!

Did I start the ball rolling that made Karajou quit? Wow, I never realised I was that good at annoying people. Intresting that one of last things he posts before he quits was a ad hominem attack on me, "I assumed the worst about this individual because the worst is what he displays on a constant basis". If I didn't have thick skin, I would consider quitting if a high-ranking member of a corrupt site spoke about me like that. But I iz a Joo, and we have big noses and thick skin. (And we're very good with money too.) I never inteneded to make people quit, I'm fine with loons and crazies being there as long as they don't block like it's going out of style. δλερνερ διαλέγομαι | συνεισφέρω 07:44, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

It had been foreshadowed that PJR & Kajagoogoo would have a machismo contest sometime but I don't think sanyone expected K to throw his teddy out like that. You were a definite factor - congratulations.   ContribsTalk 07:50, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

## Bristol Palin

I see making mention that little Bris is up the spout is gossip [3], whilst Obama being a muslim and not American must therefore be fact. Bunch of hypocrites. PsyGremlinWhut? 13:33, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Compare the gossip Commandment with the entire contents of CP:Hollywood values. weaseLOId~ 13:37, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Let's see how long Jareddr's new edits last. Not long, I think. Pity, as the last paragraph is exactly the sort of thing Andy would put in the introduction to an article on a liberal who did that. DickTurpis 15:05, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

I got you beat, I'll explain to them what her daugther has to do with the campaign when they explain what Al Gore's son's drug convictions have to do with his political career. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 15:11, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

So, are they going to have to change the Jamie-Lynn Spears entry in Hollywood values now? "The parents of 16-year old Jamie Lynn Spears allowing her unwed pregnancy to be publicly portrayed as a normal act even though she is a role model for millions of underage teenagers."HMcTavitch 15:15, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

No kidding, Bristol Palin mustbe a role model for dozens of young Alaskans. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 15:17, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I was actually going to change "Jamie Lynn Spears" to "Bristol Palin" in that article, but they're not accepting new accounts, it seems. This is what I get for getting all my socks banned. Anyway, I'm going to blame the parents here. This is what you get when you give your daughter a name that's slang for "tits". DickTurpis 15:21, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Too...damn...easy... --Kels 15:25, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

What the hell happened to my witty WIGO? Damn, Interiot, I'm gonna de-lulz your work next... DogP 15:59, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

*shrug* Humor is subjective. If you think yours is probably better, feel free to revert it. It just seemed like Andy's quote was unusually ironic and should be the first thing mentioned. --Toiretni 16:58, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

James Dobson: "The media are already trying to spin this as evidence Gov. Palin is a 'hypocrite,' but all it really means is that she and her family are human." What was Human saying about the "tightest U-turns"? --Toiretni 16:58, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Oh, there's going to be the most tortuous arguments made here. Evangelicals can't be seen to criticise Palin, but they can't be seen to condone sleeping around as a 16-year-old either. This kind of "oh, we're all just human" talk is a timebomb . Andy's avoiding the topic like the plague over there, his ant-like brain can't figure out how to take a position on the issue, as he's so tied up in dogma. Wonderful. DogP 17:08, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Er..."We're proud of Bristol's decision to have her baby." Given she'd already said she'd force her daughter to give birth even if she was raped, where's the "decision" here? --Kels 17:42, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

It reminds me of those 1920's "business mergers." You know what I'm sayin SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 18:29, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Of course there's still a decision to make... anti-choice people have abortions too.
Just last week a woman announced loudly enough for all to hear in the recovery room, that she thought abortion should be illegal. Amazingly, this was her second abortion within the last few months, having gotten pregnant again within a month of the first abortion.
That's what you get when you preach "no contraception, no abortion". --Toiretni 18:39, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I got a good one. read this have a little chuckle on me. If English was good enough for Jesus, it's good enough for me. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 18:52, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

##  Reagan

Another Reagan apologist makes his mark. Interesting bit (apart from the Supreme court appointments which seem to be fairly accurate) is the juxtaposition of: "Reduce government regulation of the economy." and "Control the money supply to reduce inflation.". Shome mishtake shurely! Oh! the Spelln's pretty atroshus too: weather/whether wear/where etc.   ContribsTalk 15:26, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

I think control the money supply might mean money supply to the government, if it does then a blow out in the debt of 160% means it didn't work. If it mean literally control the money (through government control of printing) then it is fairly economically reckless thing to do. $\approx$$\pi$ 19:59, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
The Fed cut the money supply drastically in the late 70's to combat inflation, causing the devastating recession early in Reagan's first term. Once inflation had cooled off, they opened the spigots, fueling the subsequent economic boom period a bit too enthusiastically, making the next recession a bad one as well. ħuman 20:05, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

## Wandering

So, thats the end of User:Wandering over at CP. I know I have mentioned it before but I am always in awe of Ed Poors ability to come along and fuck everything up within minutes. Ace McWickedwhisky 21:54, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

There is an old saying around wikis, "it takes Ed one minute to undo one months work by competent editors". $\approx$$\pi$ 22:00, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

I like how he was blocked for "opposing the project", isn't this Ed's proposal rather than actual policy? Actually deleting articles because they are esoteric is an essay by Ed not policy. It seems he gets an idea in his head it is now policy. Like Andy he writes and essay and it becomes truth and articles are adjusted accordingly. $\approx$$\pi$ 22:21, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
This is a "proxy call out" to PJR with Wandering as the scapegoat. Should PJR raise to the bait lulz will ensue...Philip will lose sysopship since Ed is obviously extorting Aschlafly or footing the bandwidth bill until Andy gets Mom to cough up more dough. CЯacke® 22:40, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Why does he do this? He goes around to Andy once a month and tells him all about his crappy little stub articles and Andy tells him how good it is and how much he has learnt (an obvious lie). He must view Andy as a strong authority figure as he so desperately needs his approval. $\approx$$\pi$ 23:03, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

I think it's more the power thing. Guy like Andy gives Ed a gun, and Ed takes this as a sign to go shoot up the "bad guys" Old West style. Except Ed ends up shooting his deputies, too. And his horse...and that cactus that looks at him funny. Not that that necessarily negates the susceptibility to cult-like behaviour. But Ed's actions, to me, anyway, seem to stem more from being a narcissistic dick than being a drone. --YossieSpring in Fialta 00:00, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

Interesting how Ed jumps straight from "a better X than Wikipedia" to "a good X". Personally, I find MathWorld to have way too many dead end pages for my taste, and thus wouldn't say it's better than WP... but I hardly think "oh, it's better than Wikipedia" is a valid reason for Ed to remove criticism of MathWorld from the article. (Well, he really just paraphrased a quotation, but whatever.) --Marty 00:41, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Also, this confuses me. Does Ed really believe that Wolfram's cellular automaton theories support creationism, or is he simply assuming that if Modern Science ignores Wolfram's theories, it must be because they would somehow lend support to creationism (or school prayer, or something)? Seems to me that Wolfram's CA crankery is materialistic reductionism taken to the extreme! --Marty 00:41, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
You see according to CP creationism is correct and also according to CP maths is infallible so therefore maths supports creationism, you just need to be open-minded. The fact that they have never read his work and Ed has a chip on his shoulder, because a) he got kicked out of the Wikipedia hierarchy and b) his maths articles are crap and embarrassing when compared to Wikpedia's, has nothing to do with it. $\approx$$\pi$

I see more and more people are calling Andy on his "triangular trade is a liberal myth" bullshit (see cp:Triangular trade for the latest), and yet Andy's been ignoring this entirely. Usually he makes up some BS ("Pinochet was innocent", "gossip is only gossip when I say it is") but in this case he's ignoring it entirely. Is it possible he realizes he said some unbelievably stupid stuff and thinks he can make it go away by ignoring it? The only times Andy ever admitted he has been wrong has been about minor things he could dismiss as typos or minor misunderstandings that he could easily dismiss. In this case, he has something he obviously thought about too much to dismiss as a minor error due to paying insufficient attention to the subject (he went out of his way to dismiss a universally held belief). He either has to: 1) make up utterly fanciful and completely unreferenced accusations to back up his hackneyed assumptions, 2) admit he didn't examine the situation sufficiently and admit he made an overly hasty assumption based on nothing, or 3) ignore it and pretend no one ever said anything. I guess the last is the only option it is in his power to consider. DickTurpis 23:21, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Andy has reverted. AliceBG re-reverts and calls Andy "clueless". [6]--Toffeeman 11:01, 2 September 2008 (EDT)[7]
I saw that. He hasn't reverted the triangular trade article itself, though he probably hasn't noticed it. I hope, if nothing else, this forces him to defend this weird idea of his. Right now all he says is that they didn't use the term triangular trade at the time. Gee, Andy, case closed, I guess. DickTurpis 11:11, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

In his history, only Christians make major developments and discoveries in the world, sailors arrive from Europe and those stupid Negros just hand over captured slaves for no repayment (they're so poor and stupid, they don't even know it) The constitution is a glowing merger of Church and State, Thomas Jefferson was a dirty copier and Those damn Vikings just sat around killing yaks.... Have I missed anything? SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 11:45, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
Andy: Africa was too poor to engage in trade.
AliceBG: Africa was rich in slaves. That's what they used to trade.
Andy: Africa was too poor to buy stuff.
AliceBG: Slaves were a form of wealth. That's the whole point of why people traded for slaves.
Andy: You're ignoring the main point. [Cuts off debate]

I'm no academic historian (doffs cap towards Denmark) but Wikipedia's article on the Triangular Trade is not exactly a ringing endorsement of the term. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 11:55, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

(unindent) It's not the term that matters, Andy is denying the basic principle ever occurred. He's whitewashing history to try and paint his religion in the best possible light (although I'd argue that taking slaves from Africa for nothing because the natives didn't understand money isn't a great view in itself) SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 12:00, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

Until he can actually explain where the slaves came from, I don't think he is painting his religion in an especially good light. If he's saying the trade wasn't triangular, it was back and forth between the New World and Africa, then he's exonerated the Europeans but shifted guilt to the Americans, which seems contrary to his MO. If he's saying slaves weren't traded for, but stolen, then he's made Christians look worse. If he's saying no slaves were ever brought from Africa to America then he's exonerated Christians, but he's made himself into the biggest denialist idiot anyone's ever seen. I think he's just a racist and his stereotype of savage Africans doesn't allow him to believe they could have done anything as advanced as trade. I don't think he thought through anything else. DickTurpis 12:23, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
I think he skimmed, drew a conclusion and didn't check it. Andy has read that historian "Clifford Shipton, after years of sifting through New England shipping records, could not find a single instance of a ship completing the full triangle as described"[8] This comment applies to ships of American origin only. So Andy skims "Triangular trade by Americans was a myth" to "triangular trade was a myth", puts that in his blog, people say he's wrong but the Andy mentality stops him saying "Oops, missed out "American" there." and instead he has to distort to pretend the original comment was right. --Toffeeman 12:36, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
Actually, it looks like it specifies just New England as not really being a part of triangular trade (at least not with the same ship, which may not be as relevant as it would seem). Since the triangular trade routes seem to be the Caribbean and the South, the fact New England wasn't involved is hardly surprising (slavery never really took off there the way it did in the South anyway). DickTurpis 12:42, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
EC) EC) EC) Well the way I read the WP article is that some historian coined the concept c. 1870 and it got picked up by later historians, but there is no evidence that any New England vessel actually partook in a triangular route. Perhaps this is what Aschlafly's referring to. So, is there any evidence for British vessels actually navigating the triangle? I know that this was the accepted view when I did history at school, but was it actually a physical shipping triangle or just an economic balancing of the books? If it's purely an economic concept then Schlafly's guilty of liberal literalism and I fail to see how it relieves anyone from blame as the forced transfer of Africans to the Caribbean and the USA undoubtedly took place.

##  He's an Expert on Physics, too

A marvelous opusculum of Ed Poor:
Quantum mechanics is a branch of physics which was developed in the early 20th century as physicists adjusted their theories to the result of the Michelson-Morley experiment. According to quantum theory, energy comes in discrete amounts or packets (see quanta), rather than being infinitely divisible; this parallels the ancient concept of the atom, viewed by the ancient Greeks as the smallest possible division of matter.

Um, no. That was the Theory of Special Relativity. The origins of Quantum Mechanics lie in the discovery of the Photoelectric Effect. Where are CP's experts to correct this flaw? Ah right, here...- --LArron

## Violence at the RNC

I've been looking into this violence at the RNC that CP is so worked up about, and though I hate to judge before the facts are in, I think it's likely they are exaggerated. There are reports of bags of sand or cement being thrown off an overpass at buses. Looking at the photo on this site it appears the overpass is entirely fenced in, making it nearly impossible to throw off any large object. There's a video of people describing the attack, and they sound very convincing, but it's pretty clear they have no idea what was thrown. I don't see how it could be a 50 lb bag of cement, which is what comes to mind when you hear about it. In a section of the video, some old ladies discuss that they saw/heard something land on the roof (speculation is it's a bag of sand or cement), mentioning that someone was currently up there seeing what it was. The video, somewhat suspiciously, ends just as one of the ladies appears to say "there it is!" So it seems whatever it was, whoever made the video decided not to show it, leading me to believe it may have been as harmless as anything dropped on a moving bus can be (which is still dangerous). Furthermore, blog American Thinker has pictures of an attacked bus, which to me looks like a bus with birdshit on the window. If these attacks are anything like they say they are, there should be more evidence than this. DickTurpis 14:12, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

I've no way of knowing but it was probably just a small bag of flour. It doesn't take much to make a loud noise under a metal roof (try dropping a tennis ball onto the roof of your car). IMO a large bag of cement dropped from 15 ft. or so would have made an extremely large dent on a bus roof. I don't excuse the action as dropping anything onto a moving vehicle has potential danger but you can bet the incident has been grossly exaggerated, these things always are (from both sides of the PS). ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 14:38, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
For sure, just as we liberals tend to liven up police actions a bit, the right always seems to be in a life or death struggle against these violent protests, but no evidence seems to turn up. For example, some liberal bloggers swear that the police in Denver were seconds away from opening fire with a gatling gun into the crowd of little girls in first communion dress, whereas the Republicans are being attacked by paramilitary commandos armed with RPGs and Grenades. However, when the details come out on this, I think we'll something much more confined and restrained. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 14:45, 2 September 2008 (EDT)

One of Ed's new "articles" he told Andy about. To be fair, he did say in the edit summary that it's "really just a quote - fodder for a new article."

The "source" is also very critical of H Dubs. Did Ed really read the webpage, think is was lucid and well-supported, and decide to write an article based on it?
Also, is there an internet law stating that the longer a webpage is, the more likely it is to be absolute lunacy? CorryWell, sounds like Hermano is about to get his ass kicked. 18:00, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
If not, I nominate: "The LaRouche Principle", after Lyndon LaRouche, famous pre-internet nutbag politico. His "wall of words" pamphlets put me off politics 25 years ago, (I never wrote to thank him).

This being the modern world, I demand a time and motion study on the orientation of the loo seat! I reckon in a household of equal numbers of men and women, the typical toilet is used far more often with the seat in the up position than otherwise, that men spend a disproportionate amount of their toilet time adjusting the position of the seat, and what's more that lifting the seat uses more energy than lowering it.

I've gone over 90% of the dates, and I don't see anything. It's surprising that someone can add a ton of information, and yet if one or two dates are incorrect, that's somehow proof that the dates were "intentionally wrong".
Really, Conservapedia would be far better off if they did everything they could to minimize parodists' impact. The admins are the only ones with the power to decide how much impact the parodists have (it's a wiki — reverting is trivial), but by allowing paranoia to take over the site, they've allowed parodists to influence the site far more than parodists should be allowed to. --Toiretni 22:58, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
Also, why was RJJensen editing Conservapedia while inbed? --Toiretni 22:40, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
Shhh! They could hear you! JJ4eKarajerk is dead 23:19, 2 September 2008 (EDT)
It's standard librul deceit, they're unlikely to agree anyway. "You're inadvertently giving terrorists undue influence by overhyping the threat in the public consciousness. Absolutely, respond to terrorists substantively when you have real evidence, but otherwise lay off the schtick". "You're weak on security!!111" --Toiretni 00:33, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
That exemplifies why CP is so crap, Learntogether reverts everything because of a couple of suspected incorrect dates. If he knows they are wrong why not fix them? But sysops don't get their kicks by improving articles they just love the power! ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 02:15, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Now he again unblocked RJJensen. What will happen next? Editor at CPLiar at RP! 06:29, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
*LOL* Obious an ignorant vandal! --LArron 06:45, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
That was the reason for an infinite time block?!? No wonder there are no knowledgeable users over there... Editor at CPLiar at RP! 07:09, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Whether LT's restoration (and correction) of RJJensen's edits is a result of emails or actually considering what was said here, it still shows an itchy trigger finger. In the context of the article the dates were obviously out, so anyone (with a bit of common sense) using the article would realise it was a typo. I have made similar mistakes and Pooh-Bah does it all the time. So even though RJJ's unblocked and the article is improved it still leaves a nasty aftertaste. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 07:37, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
so anyone (with a bit of common sense) - I think you've just put your finger on the problem. Totnesmartin 07:50, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Update: Funnily enough, the same LT gets his date wrong. When a new user corrects it with a mildly ironic edit summary, he is banhammered. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 05:46, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

##  Balanced budgets the Alaskan way

Living in California there is quite a bit of fun of passing a budget bill. LearnTogether suggests that Palin understands balancing budgets too.[15] From what I understand of balancing budgets in Alaska... there is no sales tax in Alaska. Nor is there an income tax. Nor is there a property tax. Instead, they tax the oil companies and get some money that is a budget surplus. Then they write checks to every citizen of Alaska and you're done. Isn't that easy? No, the Alaskan budget is not something that one has to do much with. So to answer LT, Palin has balanced the same number of budgets as Obama. And incidently, Obama had to work with other people rather than using an unconstitutional line item veto (the ability to write and change laws is something that belongs to the legislative branch - not the executive branch) to slash funding for teenage mothers[16] --Shagie 03:22, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

##  Another insight into the mind of Aschlafly

So with a new term starting just why would Andy bother "wikify" an article about the wife of Socrates? Ah, thats's the reason. ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 04:08, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Remember, even Socrates isn't welcome there, so obviously his unhappy atheistic public schooled classroom prayer protesting wife isn't either. NorsemanWassail! 07:57, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

## Ed & Maths AGAIN!

Seriously, does he wake up, start drinking, then beats up on maths in the absence of a wife and kids? This edit once again astounds me. Ed, you are a complete tappet and you work on a wiki - correct it yourself (if you are capable of typing). At the moment, you are no better than a vandal, especially as no sane person should be willing to correct your stuff. --PsyGremlinWhut? 08:16, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

 This is to certify that Edmund Poor was voted CONSERVAPEDIA'S BIGGEST IDIOT By RationalWiki, on June 30, 2008 Reaffirmed 3 September 2008

Note that Ed wants to merge Multiplication Property of Equality with Equality. The former is about a = b implying ac = bc, the latter is about Social Equality, so, same thing then. Silver Sloth 08:54, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Argh! I'd like parodists not to touch Ed's maths articles, as they are so funny by themselves! Sure the fact that Ed doesn't even understand the parody is funny too. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 09:47, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Another suggestion. If you put a piece of wonderful parody, and some idiot over there not only doesn't understand it as parody, but also praises you for that, don't ruin everything by putting more obvious parody. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 09:59, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
The article is pretty hilarious in its current state.Shangrala 11:11, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
That's quite correct. Let's hope it isn't changed anymore. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 12:01, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
You'd think that at least Ed would appreciate the merits of disambiguation pages, considering he was once a big wheel at Wikipedia before he pissed it all away for the cause of "Reverend" Moon and creationism. --JeevesMkII 12:05, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
That's a good point. I notice they seem to eschew disambiguation pages. Is that official, or have they just not figured out how well they work, or have they still not have enough articles that having two with the same name is a problem yet? Or is it one of those "Wikipedia does it so it must be bad" things? DickTurpis 12:23, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
I'd swear that there was some discussion on disambiguation pages a long time ago, in TK's times, and they decided not to use them if at all possible, but I don't remember why, probably just because of Wikipedia. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 12:44, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Unrelated question: I noticed on the award that he is called Edmund. Is that his real first name, not Edward? Editor at CPLiar at RP! 12:47, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
It is. I'm pretty sure it's confirmed. DickTurpis 12:51, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Thanks, and corrected. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 12:54, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

PJR is turning into a troll. He should be banned from CP due to his inability to keep an open mind and his insistence on bickering with his betters.

##  And when we are getting bored...

... Andy comes to the rescue with a new Conservapedia term: emotional gambling. Editor at CPLiar at RP! 10:27, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Don't we already have a term for an emotional investment in something? You know, "emotional investment." --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 10:30, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Good start, Andy. Now, how can you get this to apply solely to liberals? DickTurpis 10:31, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Yeah. Where the hell could this possibly be going? --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 10:32, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Emotional investment is good Conservative, emotional gambling is bad Liberal. Why do I have to point the obvious? Editor at CPLiar at RP! 10:33, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Calling it now. "Liberals like to gamble with the emotions of pregnant teenagers and their parents."Shangrala 11:09, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

So far, it's probably the best term Andy's come up with (though I wouldn't be surprised if others have used it), though there's not a hell of a lot of competition there. I do wonder how it will be used to demonize liberals. Right now it's largely about sports, which if anything is stronger associations with conservatives. I guess we'll have to wait and see. Or could this be Andy's first term that isn't designed to be a political attack? Is he back on his meds? DickTurpis 11:23, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Liberals in their blind and ignorant support of Obama are emotionally gambling that the impossible will happen and Obama will turn out not to be the anti-Christ after all. Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 11:38, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

WTF? I didn't realize Andy was consciously creating as many neologisms as he could. Is he trying to be a cool /b/tard or something? --Toiretni 14:14, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

How exactly do you set about breaking Rule 34? You cannot do the impossible! Radioactive Misanthrope 14:31, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
It's so conservapedia can be top of the google rankings, thus attracting new readers - even though only someone familiar with CP would type in the phrase. Or he could be doing it to be number one at something, but as Conservatives have no emotional problems that's obviously impossible. (BTW, why is Google Chrome's spellchecker questioning "google"?) Totnesmartin 14:22, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
It probably wants you to capitalize it, much as firefox wants to see "Firefox". ħuman 17:29, 3 September 2008 (EDT)
Andy can play the Googlewhack game all he wants... it almost always means that RationalWiki gets the second-place search result (nobody else has enough time and boredom to track his every edit), which is just as good as linking to us from Conservapedia. Keep to it, Andy. --Toiretni 14:41, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

It's because elitist liberals have co-opted history (specifically etymology) and have allowed words to be twisted into their original meanings. Thus, the only way to roll these wave of liberal fluency back is . . . Newspeak. See Andy 's definition of swift-boatingfor a cogent example. Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 14:28, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

I have to admit, not only is this surprisingly free of political slant, but it's a good term by itself (well, the crap Bugler added needs a huge {{fact}} tag but that's about it). Good job CP! NightFlarei haz a talk page. 15:26, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

##  Aschlafly In Charge

I just wanted to preserve this funny Asshat made before moving on to the next diff. I'm gonna quote the asshat in his entirety, responding to the question "who is in charge of this wiki?":

"Your question reminds me of a funny scene in the classic Monty Python movie. "Who is your lord? Who lives in that castle?" Answer: "No one!" Meritocracy rules here. JohnI, one day you may find yourself in charge if your merit deserves it!"

Very amusing. ħuman 17:27, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

Cool. Andy basically admits there's nobody actually in charge, since he abdicates any duties at the slightest sign of actual unrest between the non-expendables. Been kinda obvious for a while, but what the heck? --Kels 17:35, 3 September 2008 (EDT)

ARTHUR: Be quiet! I order you to be quiet! // Order, eh -- who does he think he is? // I am your king! // Well, I didn't vote for you. // You don't vote for kings. // Well, 'ow did you become king then? // The Lady of the Lake, [angels sing] her arm clad in the purest shimmering samite, held aloft Excalibur from the bosom of the water signifying by Divine Providence that I, Arthur, was to carry Excalibur.
