# Conservapedia talk:Blocking the planet

Isn't blocking the planet a bit of a stretch and how is this different from Conservapedia:Forbidden Cities, Conservapedia:Range blocks and Conservapedia:IP blocks? Can we have one, maybe two articles on this topic? - User ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle (6\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }n^{-2})^{1/2}}$ 20:21, 15 March 2009 (EDT)

Why not just merge Conservapedia:Forbidden Cities into this article? - User ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle (6\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }n^{-2})^{1/2}}$ 09:22, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
I was wondering about a merge too, but which has the catchier title? "Blocking the Planet" or "Forbidden Cities" I'm not sure... ArmondikoVnarchist 10:00, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
I'd say we should use Blocking the Planet for the overarching article with the others as subsections. --Edgerunner76 10:05, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
I agree with Edgerunner here, although then someone has to go through and fix the forbidden city links:
• Conservapedia:Deceit
• Conservapedia Talk:What is going on at CP?/Archive21
• Conservapedia Talk:What is going on at CP?/Archive68
• Conservapedia:A Parodist's Guide to Villainy
Actually, I thought there would be more.... Sterilewalkie-talkie 08:28, 17 March 2009 (EDT)

That's what happens with Conservapedia space. WěǎšěǐǒǐďMethinks it is a Weasel 17:04, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

## Internet-wide block

Am I correct that 0.0.0.0/0, 255.255.255.255/0, or anything in-between (if /0 were allowed by MediaWiki) would block the entire internet? --Edgerunner76 09:49, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

Pretty much. - User ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle (6\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }n^{-2})^{1/2}}$ 09:56, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

### TK

How crazy would TK get if the MediaWiki software did not stop him at /16? I can imagine him doing a /8. He'd certainly do a few slightly lower teens range blocks. --Edgerunner76 10:03, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

With 8 he could take out an entire class A network such as MIT. - User ${\displaystyle \scriptstyle (6\sum _{n=1}^{\infty }n^{-2})^{1/2}}$ 10:08, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
Are you saying that even TK wouldn't do that? --Edgerunner76 10:10, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

## Anonymous proxies/TOR/other things?

Anyone know whether any of those are permissible methods of entry? if so is there a list of them that CP blocks? Thieh 22:14, 3 May 2009 (UTC)

No, proxies and TOR are not permitted on CP. TK reflexively checkusers any non-sysop editor and will ban your account and rangeblock the proxy even if you haven't done anything wrong. I've seen TK rangeblock proxies before the editor has made a single edit just as quickly as he and Poor Ed will block if they don't like your user name.

I got BlackBerry blocked :) — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 15:18, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

Please elaborate - does that mean no one can now edit Conservapedia from a Blackberry?--ConservapediaRoolz 16:19, 15 May 2009 (UTC)

## How to get blocked

I used to be blocked on CP but not any longer. It was a source of pride in my fellow customers at my ISP. What should I do to get my address blocked again? What should I do to get a /24 range blocked? A /16 range?

Well, apparently replacing the "Jesus" article with the lyrics to "The God That Failed" will get you a year off, so.... Jwebb13 (talk) 13:29, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
