Trusworthy is a brilliant neologism used by Conservapedia to define itself. It was coined by whichever typographic genius created this logo which appeared on Conservapedia's masthead in late April 2007:
Lexicographers have been able to infer, from records accompanying the image, that Conservapedia meant to say that it was striving to become "trustworthy." Obviously, it failed with hilarious results. In this sense, the logo is linguistically related to Conservapedia by synecdoche: the failings of this little logo symbolize the failure, with hilarious results, of the encyclopedia as a whole.
“”We don't want to be known as the wiki you can put your truss in.

We all make mistaeks from time to tiem, but propagating one across an entire trusworthy encyclopaedia for several days takes talent.
