A(n) fucking ad hominem attack[edit]

Eh, teh Kangarooroo probably deserved a little curtain pulling. What you wrote might be cynical and have an attitude, but it's not ad hominem if it's true, and addresses claims made by the subject. You should probably copy this to an article on him in the CP namespace so it doesn't diappear into an archive. Oh, and strikeout the cusswords for amusing effect! humanUser talk:Human 19:09, 28 January 2008 (EST)
Anybody know what "karajou" means? I'm guessing it's a foreign phrase ("kara jou"), but I've no clue the language...--70.106.203.13 19:56, 28 January 2008 (EST)
It was the name of his sled. ;) --Robledo 20:13, 28 January 2008 (EST)
Ding!!! Now copy/cut/paste all this to Conservapedia:Sysops/Karajou (and its talk page) so we dont' lose it!

"Kara Jou"

Gulf War veteran[edit]

If he was a real Gulf War vet shouldn't there be a deployment in the Arabian/Persian Gulf? Or was he hanging back, safe in the Med? Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 06:32, 29 January 2008 (EST)

USS South Carolina was in the Red Sea and the Med during Desert Shield and Desert Storm respectively, so that's probably it. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 06:45, 29 January 2008 (EST)


Originally under the end of the article[edit]

Since this was cobbled together on a talk page the following was originally part of the post, but now just causes conflusion:


I make no claims to being perfect or impervious. In fact, I practically expect you all to critize my methodology and my conclusions.

Ain't free speech the greatest? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 18:35, 28 January 2008 (EST)


Casualty tables[edit]

I put these in to demonstrate the relative safety of being in the Navy during the recent Middle East conflicts to support the contention that sitting in a boat many miles offshore was no big deal. Jollyfish.gifGenghis Marauding 11:48, 7 February 2008 (EST)

The casualty tables make a good point, I mean, if over a hundred suicides is statistically insignificant (as Andy insists), then certainly 5 combat deaths must be. -DickTurpis 12:30, 7 February 2008 (EST)
I can easily put them back in if you feel it does help the argument. I removed them because I felt the series of tables "broke the flow" of the text. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 13:03, 7 February 2008 (EST)
My issue with the tables is you're supposed to be belittling Karajou's service record, not that of all Naval Personell. Just because their KIA numbers are lower, that doesn't mean they weren't involved. Jets are less likely to be shot down than a tank or hmmwv being blown up. Jrssr5 15:23, 7 February 2008 (EST)

Karajou Blocks[edit]

I'm probably the only one that cares but when Admiral Karajou blocked because: "Canadian citizen demanding First Amendment rights under our Constitution, when he hasn't sworn to uphold and protect it"; he was blocking me. just find it funny is all. thought i should tell y'all... i'll stop now. --Iconoclast beggar 17:16, 14 February 2008 (EST)

Nice to know :) humanUser talk:Human 16:45, 14 February 2008 (EST)
Wait... Canadians don't have rights? That's certainly news to me. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 16:49, 14 February 2008 (EST)
Nah. We're too gay-/pot-/healthcare-friendly to be considered people, let alone have rights.--Iconoclast beggar 17:20, 14 February 2008 (EST)
"Canadians" are just a made up group anyway-- another liberal deceit. We aren't fooled by "Canada" here. Obviously the few hundred (maybe fourteen hundred people) living there are just North Americans. You're clueless if you don't swear to that on a stack of bibles admit that. Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 18:30, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

dishonorable mention[edit]

This exchange with sysop Fox shows that his reading com-pre-hen-sion is a bit lacking. If it doesn't say what he thinks it says then it's YOUR fault now blocked user. The la, ta biblious syndrome all over agin, eh, Sid? CЯacke® 17:23, 14 February 2008 (EST)

Taking all the Umbridge[edit]

Ok, I have to complain in the strongest possible terms about the second picture on this page.... It clearly represents Karajou as black... IF we don't have any proof of his race, I Demand we take it down.... It's bad enough I have to accept Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton in my race, I'm not taking this bastard too. SirChuckBBATHE THE WHALES!!!! 02:58, 19 July 2008 (EDT)

Yah, but the first picture implies we whities are to blame for this hideous spawn. We are judging him by the content of his "character", right? And we don't know the color of his skin... ħumanUser talk:Human 03:10, 19 July 2008 (EDT)
Ya cool wit dat? That second picture is pretty offensive - to anyone who has ever had a job, ever... ħumanUser talk:Human 01:19, 8 August 2008 (EDT)
PS - feel free to swap in a picture of a cracker/whitey - I don't mind. Really. Youse guys got kicked down harder than I could ever imagine... ħumanUser talk:Human 01:21, 8 August 2008 (EDT)
Oh no, I was just joking with that.... never take me seriously when it comes to things like this. SirChuckBBATHE THE WHALES!!!! 01:42, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

I wonder[edit]

Has anyone ever asked why he's called Karajou? --Enghorn 00:26, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

No idea, sounds French too . . .— Unsigned, by: 99.233.20.105 / talk / contribs
it's his first name and last initial . . . Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 18:31, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

The furry thing...[edit]

Considering (neglecting?) the chances that it's really him, I suggest we delete it; it's mindless snark (specially when it can be used against practically every other sysop) and doesn't seem to add anything else to the article either. NightFlareThis is a talk page. 18:20, 8 August 2008 (EDT)

Little Flags[edit]

I noticed on Karajou's user page he has all those little flags showing where he has been, one thing occurred to me though. How did he do a WESTPAC deployment without visiting Australia or New Zealand? They are the US closest allies in that region. \approx\pi 00:05, 1 September 2008 (EDT)

Them ANZACs got taste! SusanG  ContribsTalk 00:07, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
I know New Zealand won't permit US nuclear vessels, maybe both countries won't permit any vessel carrying Karajou because they have no idea what it is. \approx\pi 00:11, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
As a NZer I can tell you things are a little frosty with the Yanks. If Karajoujoujowl went in the 1980's there was the whole Nuke Free protests going on and many U.S vessels didn't come here. Also we dont want people like Karajowls here. We have our own assholes to deal with. Ace McWicked
Come to think, don't Oz have a No Nukes thing as well? 00:18, 1 September 2008 (EDT)
Oz has no Nuke weapons but they have nuke power....and massive Uranium mines. Ace McWicked

Back[edit]

The "further notice" has expired - ahabKarajou is back, and he's still got Mjolnir! Totnesmartin 13:02, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

Don't compare him to Thor...Thor had two goats that pulled his chariot, Karajou is many things, but Goat Friendly is not one of them. SirChuckBBATHE THE WHALES!!!! 14:23, 4 September 2008 (EDT)

Usual routine of paranoia?[edit]

Karajou has blocked "Johnhoward" for being a sockpuppet of TimJ even though the former account has not even edited yet! Is the letter "J" causing him to get distressed? Is it because the letter "J" stands for John Howard? 128.238.35.165 22:48, 13 September 2008 (EDT)

I created an account at CP, and my user page was not hiding anything and within 2 min. I got a "pack your liberal bags and leave" warning. Paranoia at its best. Scary to think that someone so paranoid was in the military. Not even Gold Bond can fix a trigger finger that itchy.--Snotbowst 21:35, 29 November 2008 (EST)

Ad hominem attack[edit]

Since this is an article rather than an essay, is it really appropriate for a large chunk of it to be written in the first person ("I am going to start out by affirming that I have nothing against military servicemen" blah blah blah) without identifying the author? Also do we really need so much of the article given over to speculation about his military career (which has little to do with RW missions) rather than his observed behaviour at Conservapedia? My suggestion is that this section be moved to a subpage or an essay, & linked from the karajou article. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 18:51, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Indeed it did start as an ad hom by RA. It should be converted into third person snark. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding 19:03, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I reckon it should be abridged a bit too. It just seems to be going into too much depth based on scant evidence (i.e. we assume his naval record isn't actually that great based on some acronyms he gives & the fact that he doesn't go into more detail about it). The same can be achieved in a paragraph or so, without taking up two-thirds of the article. weaseLOIdWeaselly.jpg~ 19:10, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Usual rulz apply - don't delete too much without consensus. Suggest that you mock up an alternative and run it up the flagpole to see who salutes. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding 19:15, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Oh. I was just going to go through and change all the pronouns accordingly. It's not that hard, you know... Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 19:20, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Rub it a little bit and that should to the trick. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding 19:21, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Done. No objections, I hope? I tried to keep the changes to a minimum, though I did add something that Human mentioned on talk:WIGO a couple weeks ago. Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 19:25, 5 October 2008 (EDT)
Wow, did I help while I was cutting pipes down to rearrange so I can have central heat again? Kewl. Nice work on the 3rd personning, by the way. Good catch. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:45, 5 October 2008 (EDT)

Why has Karajou ban me?[edit]

I have come back from holiday and found that Karajou blocked my account on Conservapedia, but I do not know why he did it. He says

You do not have permission to edit this page, for the following reason:

Your user name or IP address has been blocked.

The block was made by Karajou. The reason given is Trolling / Liberal Trolling: Your accent slipped. Bye..

Start of block: 11:12, 26 June 2009 Expiry of block: infinite Intended blockee: Lexfundamen

You can contact Karajou or another administrator to discuss the block. You cannot use the 'e-mail this user' feature unless a valid e-mail address is specified in your account preferences and you have not been blocked from using it. Your current IP address is 174.36.153.167, and the block ID is #55165.

Please include all above details in any queries you make.

My accent slipped? I write pretty well in English, but sometimes make mistakes. I do not understand what he means but he says I am trolling/liberal trolling. I am theology student in Europe. I do not know liberal or trolling and I think Liberal must mean something very different to me!

Please help me understand Karajou! This feels he singled me out to say this thing. I tryed to email him from Conservapedia but it will not permit me so I found this website by searching on the web for Conservapedia and hope someone helps me.

Lexfundamen 23:46, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Its because Conservapedia doesnt actually want editors who know anything at all. All facts are reverted as "liberal" and any argument results in instant ban. But you are more than welcome here! Ace McWickedi9 23:54, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
I said on my home page there that I was there to practice English. I think they did not like that I know very little maybe. Lexfundamen 23:58, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
at conservapedia you can get an infinate ban for just about anything. Facts are "liberal" and europeans are unwanted. That is it in a nutshell. Ace McWickedi9 00:05, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
