Is something wrong with the voting?[edit]

For some reason the moment I posted a link it started out with a score of 70 votes rather than 0 — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

You need to increment the counter in the markup. I've fixed this for you. Cosmikdebris (talk) 21:37, 11 March 2018 (UTC)
With reference to this story I suspect Andy is either a secret LSD user or wants to show that he is the most insane of the CP sysops. Does he really think Katy Perry murdered the Nun with the help of an evil spirit possessing her? That is insane, I doubt even Alex Jones could have come up with that one.--Mercian (talk) 01:31, 12 March 2018 (UTC)
It's right up there with Karakjerk's "ok, so this lens flare from a video of the Egyptian riots is totally a sign that the Four Horsemen are coming back, and even if it's not real, it's still totally a sign!" LongLostLegend (talk) 09:24, 12 March 2018 (UTC)

Oi, PeterKa[edit]

"I watched Schumer in an interview after Gorsuch was nominated. Schumer said, "He'll need 60 votes" and no one challenged him -- as if filibustering a Supreme Court nominee was perfectly routine." I have this letter from Merrick Garland, telling you to go fuck yourself, but since it was written in the last year of a democratic administration, it doesn't count.

Also, tell nobs to stop punching below his weight and start talking crazy on a place that will actually recognize his performance art as such. I'd say something over at Conservapedia, but it would doubtlessly be immediately censored. Semipenultimate (talk) 21:13, 20 March 2018 (UTC)

Uh Oh[edit]

How will Andy and Ken deal with the facts? Austin bomber is a home-schooled, self-described conservative. Whoover (talk) 18:37, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

@Whoover Obviously he's a liberal lying in an attempt to make conservatives look bad. Obviously. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:52, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Another dilemma for Andy. Facebook is undergoing the biggest scandal in it's history but he has ignored it. This is because they are associated with a UK company called Cambridge Analytica who admitted they helped Trump's election campaign.--Mercian (talk) 23:50, 21 March 2018 (UTC)
Ok. He may be a conservative, home-schooled Christian but Andy says he didn't have a job. Except for the job he had. And helping his father build the house he lived in when he wasn't working at his job. But he didn't have another job. I wonder if the Young Serial Murderers page will get a new column for number of jobs. More likely this guy will not appear on the page. Whoover (talk) 05:50, 22 March 2018 (UTC)
He was not a conservative because Ken said so. In fact he was "A Jobless slacker". The non Scottish pot calling the kettle black eh Ken?--Mercian (talk) 18:02, 24 March 2018 (UTC)

Talk:Main Page art project[edit]

CP's Main Page talk is blowing up right now in a glorious tangle of True Believers, parodists, and shit-stirrers, with plenty of non sequiturs and WTFery as they argue at about 45° to one another. Trying to follow the thinking there is like trying to do play-by-play of twelve rats fighting in a sack with a fever of a hundred and four (forty, in science units). Bizarrely, Conservative is actually the one that makes the most sense there amongst RobS, PeterKa, and Pokeria1 advocating for pre-emptive nuclear strikes on Iran, arguing against Western democracy because it leads to socialism, and claiming that Confederate flags are embraced as a sign of reconciliation among older whites. They're Gish Galloping all over each other over there, and it's fucking glorious. And it all seems to have spun up out of nowhere in the last couple of days. Is it a coordinated art installation? --Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 17:04, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

Aye, it hasn't been this entertaining in a long time. My working theory is it's all frantic displacement activity to avoid dealing with the shitstorm that's about to engulf their straw-thatched übermensch. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 20:45, 25 March 2018 (UTC)
A requirement of modern 'conservatism' is the threefold cycle: 1, find a Great White Hope. 2, put vast, unrealistic expectations on them. 3, Eat them alive when they fail, and go back to 1. Since, oh, Newt Gingrich, this has been the way of the Rs. It's just before they've always had someone waiting in the wings who was relatively unsullied by the failure of the present GWH to fulfill said unrealistic expectations. But Trump's gameboard only has room for Trump, so there's nobody else in the party getting oxygen at the moment or for the last two years, for that matter. The boat is sinking, and the USS New GWH is nowhere nearby. My guess is they'll end up quickly latching onto someone with the same hate in their heart for LGBTQs, non-whites, non-Christians and non-supporters as Current Occupant has, but with the low cunning necessary to keep their moral failings in the shadows - your Franklin Grahams, your Mike Pences. Just so long as they can ever avoid any kind of self-reflection or inward examination of exactly when it was they succumbed to the third temptation. Semipenultimate (talk) 15:07, 26 March 2018 (UTC)

How has Ken changed so little?[edit]

"Essay: An irreligionist obsessing about the User: Conservative account", which was coincidentally written a rather short time after a certain post appeared on the What is going on at CP? talk page, was also coincidentally deletedimg within hours of this WIGO update.
This, however, is neither a symptom of RationalWiki Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (ROCD), nor a sign of a complete lack of machismo.
The editorsssSsßsСsсsΣsσsς (Plural! More than one! Geddit?!) who uses a certain account to non-compulsively edit a certain trustworthy encyclopedia, and who is completely not obsessed with RationalWiki, likely often psychologically projects himself as a dog with a bone. His dogged persistence in thinking about the WIGO CP page and its talk page, checking the WIGO CP page and its talk page on a nearly hourly basis, and responding to the WIGO CP page and its talk page never really ends.

He still has all his same habits, obsessing over internet rankings, making dozens of inconsequential tweaks to his ravings. How can somebody stay at the bottom for so long without changing in any way? My life is radically different from when it was back when I actually had time to be a regular here. I just can't fathom the level of mental illness required to keep User:Conservative festering at Conservapedia for over a decade. This guy has been doing nothing with his life since 2007. Always hyping some great change that never comes, always with the same tone, with the same bizarre mannerisms. I just feel bad for him. When I started editing RW, I didn't have a job. I didn't have any friends. You couldn't look at me and assume I had a future. Now I don't work less than 65 hours a week and I've formed a close and fulfilling social circle. I'm not saying this to brag, because it's not bragging if it's the bare minimum of American middle-class existence; I'm saying this to contrast my life to Ken's. He's on CP all day every day. He doesn't work. He doesn't have friends. It's always been like this. It doesn't get better for him. And that makes me sad--"Shut up, Brx." 04:06, 6 April 2018 (UTC)

Always same since 2007 → irrelevant. Not intended to be a reply in any sort of the way, i just make a comment.--Hi! SMB99thx XD I'm not LeftyGreenMario! 08:37, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
I would argue that wasting your life and demonstrating the same manias for over ten years is pretty goddamn significant. I mean, holy shit. Since 2007. He's been the same way since 2007. Conservapedia is his life. Case in point, he felt the need to spend over two hours crafting a reply to this thread. I wonder if he has any family that checks in on him. I wonder if it's possible his life can get better at this point. It just makes me sad--"Shut up, Brx." 02:08, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
The essay has now been deleted, rather proves your point Brxbrx. Conservative is a raving Anglophobe and he always manages to find a small nation that does things "better" than than The UK. One nation he never compares The UK to is America, which is understandable as all of his arguments would fold if he did so. Britain and obesity, The USA is the most obese country in the world. Britain and bestiality, a practice that is LEGAL in some states. Britain and child abuse, it is possible to get married age 12 in some US states and from what I can gather the adult and the parents of the child have to agree, the child (normally herself) has no say in the matter. Britain and violent crime, It is true that violent crime in London has risen recently and for two months it has seen a higher murder rate than New York, that is like celebrating a consolation goal after already being 20-0 down.--Mercian (talk) 14:50, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
About violent crime, it's still difficult to compare violent crime between U.S. and UK because they're defined and counted differently in each country. When gun nuts try to use "U.K. haz more violent crime and less gunz", it's a disingenuous argument. Oh, but hey, you know what the U.S. DOES have? A salad of culture! Mexican and Chinese restaurants everywhere in some parts of the U.S.!!! Oh, I think talking about this is far more interesting than the sad little man that Ken is. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 23:51, 8 April 2018 (UTC)
I see Cons has produced another essayimg replying to this talk page. As someone who only recently discovered Conservapedia and RationalWiki, why doesn't he just reply here? After all he does have a user account here on RW and its quite clear to anyone who is aware of the existence of RationalWiki that that is who he's talking about when he says, "a wiki beginning with an R." CPWatcher (talk) 13:54, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
No one can criticise him on Conservapedia as he’s a sysop. All long-term users on RationalWiki are sysops. Christopher (talk) 14:22, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
i'm still convinced conservative is schafly in the same way norman bates was his mother AMassiveGay (talk) 14:28, 13 April 2018 (UTC)
