Conservapedia talk:Blocking the planet

Jump to navigation Jump to search

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 20:21, 15 March 2009 (EDT)

Why not just merge Conservapedia:Forbidden Cities into this article? - User 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 OMYAC.jpg 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)

This is very out of date... Tyrannis (talk) 16:54, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

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

Internet-wide block[edit]

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

Pretty much. - User 09:56, 16 March 2009 (EDT)


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 OMYAC.jpg 10:03, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

With 8 he could take out an entire class A network such as MIT. - User 10:08, 16 March 2009 (EDT)
Are you saying that even TK wouldn't do that? --Edgerunner76 OMYAC.jpg 10:10, 16 March 2009 (EDT)

Anonymous proxies/TOR/other things?[edit]

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[edit]

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)

Blocked from reading?[edit]

Do they block people from reading their site too? I haven't been able to access any of their pages for weeks. I don't get a 403 error; it just times out. Thanks. Reasoner (talk) 09:36, 31 January 2014 (UTC)

Allegedly, they don't do that. Reasoner (talk) 01:04, 8 February 2014 (UTC)

San Francisco ban apparently doesn't extend to rest of Northern California[edit]

Can't wait to see how long it takes that to change.... Jwebb13 (talk) 12:46, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

Weirdly enough, they reverted every edit I made except my initial edit, which consisted of nothing more than, well, "BAAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!1!," and so forth... can't decide if they didn't notice or if they're just used to it. Jwebb13 (talk) 13:20, 29 October 2015 (UTC)

I take it back; they've left most of my "edits" for now... maybe PeterKa agrees with me that "Pretty Vacant" is the best Conservative song in history. Jwebb13 (talk) 13:25, 29 October 2015 (UTC)
