Managed to get “CheckUser blocked” on CP after I left it.[edit]

The thing is, they still have the “everyone is localhost” glitch. So they CU blocked me based on the fact that the non-existent IP address is shared by trolls. By that logic they should block everyone else too. Not that I care, I was leaving anyway. But the interesting thing is they deleted around 10 of my articles that didn’t have any conspiracy/POV pushing stuff in it, (all the red links here) but kept all the rest?? They also deleted my user page and talk page. I find it funny that they ignored the obvious parodist (starts with a U and ends with States) but blocked me. I left it like 3 weeks ago, due to all the religion pushing. Checked back to see that. Just thought it was kind of funny (and maybe deserves a spot on the WIGO CP).

ETA: Suspicious that Ken removed the AFD notice on this ridiculous (https://conservapedia.com/Atheism_and_Alzheimer%27s_disease) article 30 minutes before my block. Sievert 81 (talk) 17:34, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

Ah yes, Anger Bear... violating basic MediaWiki admin etiquette by deleting talk pages, and alienating people who agree with him. And I think United States, given his trolling of us and legitimately spreading lies about moi on CP and his seemingly genuine persecution complex, is either a master parodist or a sheltered, homeskolled right-wing kiddie who really does think that anyone who happens to know someone who happens to know someone who works for a Chinese government-owned company is a Chinese spy.
Oh yeah, and Ken will always violate the site rules to protect his pet articles. And like, half of the essays he makes these days feature his regained obsession with our site, which is supposed to be a banned subject. --Goatspeed.

Funny how the same idiot that accused me of spreading pseudoscience is the same one linking prion disease to atheism. Sievert 81 (talk) 17:52, 6 January 2021 (UTC)

CP Jan 6th insurrection coverage[edit]

Among RobS' usual false-flag blathering, he included this little gem: "House Chaplain ends session with prayer to 'bless Antifa'", along with a handy link showing the moment of prayer. A slightly more rational mind might hear Chaplain Barry C. Black intone "Bless and keep us". Don't let the mask slip too far, Robs!--Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 23:23, 7 January 2021 (UTC)

This should go on the wigo; it's just too hilarious! --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 00:42, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
It's not just Conservapedia. The whole right wing internet is going off like July 4th, Bonfire Night, Diwali and New Year's Eve all at once. LondonGrump (talk) 11:26, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
I wonder how like before there is a MPR story about Bradlee Dean using Bible quotes which he seems to pick at random to justify what has happened. "Overthrowing the will of people is God's intent, Corinthians Chapter 5 Verse 7."--Mercian (talk) 14:16, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
Rob is staggeringly dishonest to perpetuate this conspiracy theory. The chaplain is clearly saying "god bless and keep us", not "god bless antifa". Nutty Roux (talk) 22:00, 8 January 2021 (UTC)
He must be shitting his pants. One one hand, the Communist Secret Police have him on a list because of his fearless investigations and reporting; on the other, he hasn't got the bottle or nous to go off grid. What to do?

A bit of WTF from Andy, referencing the Twelfth Amendment: "this amendment requires the Senate President (the Vice President of the United States) to open the Electoral College votes, but does not specify who should count them and thus the House (voting by state delegation) could do that." Sooo.... they just make every state get one vote despite the number of electoral college votes? They just have the House elect the President every four years? What the fuck is he on about here? --Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 04:40, 9 January 2021 (UTC)

Covered by The Onion a long time ago -- "Area Man Passionate Defender Of What He Imagines Constitution To Be" PanGalacticGargleBlaster (talk) 04:44, 9 January 2021 (UTC)
There's this one from Andy [1] who says the protestors were disrespectful. He fails to mention they were on top of being disrespectful a violent mob egged on by Trump to murder his own VP, a man described by Andy as weak with no machismo. Is it hyperbole to label him traitor?--Mercian (talk) 21:25, 10 January 2021 (UTC)
I've been wondering when they would fully melt-down. They can't tacitly support Christian Fascism with the focus on so high right not.-RipCityLiberal (talk) 20:38, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

Trump Who?[edit]

US national debt to 2015 is Obama's fault; after that it's Pelosi's. Whoover (talk) 21:15, 8 January 2021 (UTC)

Casual anti semitism from Conservapedia[edit]

1 Sievert 81 (talk) 04:25, 11 January 2021 (UTC)

Says the boy who added something so horrible to CP's Judaism article that the revision has been hidden. Spud (talk) 05:57, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
If you call spamming “CP sysops are far-right bastards that hate jews!” and a bunch of porn links “anti semitism”, sure. But I was just trolling them. I wanted to make them think I was a “juvenile delinquent” sock, and they tend to revert their changes after doing it. Sievert 81 (talk) 22:45, 11 January 2021 (UTC)
If what you say is true (which it might be, given that when it comes to this "juvenile delinquent" their admins' approach seems to be feeding the troll big-time), then yes, fair enough. that's not antisemitism. However, we do not encourage vandalism on other wikis, and it was still not funny, and just stupid. --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 01:06, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
Never wanted it to be. Just wanted to make them think I was a subversive infiltrator to mess with them. Sievert 81 (talk) 01:09, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
Ah, I see. The user United States, who was recently given a really long block by nobs for some unexplained "ban evasion", thinks I want to go to Chicago and destroy CP's physical server; I trust that you have seen that page in his userspace. --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 01:12, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
This is the same guy who thinks someone used “his” IP address (127.0.0.1, aka localhost) to vandalize the site and was trying to get him banned. He called him a “internet terrorist”. Sievert 81 (talk)
All it seems to take to get them is the ex-Navy SEAL copypasta, I can't believe that actually still works there; I've had it directed at me on Wikipedia a couple times, it's not hard to just remove without comment. The Blade of the Northern Lights (話して下さい) 01:36, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
They seem to be incapable of understanding satire. That’s why they always get infiltrated by trolls. Account creation is off now because of that. Sievert 81 (talk) 01:39, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

@Sievert 81 Vandalizing a page by adding a bunch of porn links is enough in and of itself to get you banned for life on just about every wiki out there. Whether they suspect you of being a sock of some other juvenile delinquent is irrelevant. And if you think doing that on CP makes you look good to RationalWiki moderators, it doesn't. Spud (talk) 06:25, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

@SpudI’d argue going through a user’s contributions and following me to every single discussion to say something negative about them is worse. I merely stated what I did and why I did it to defend against the anti semitism accusation. I never said I was in the right, never said I was in the wrong. Some of the users, even sysops, have made parody or vandalism accounts on CP before. Not to brag or show off. I tried to pull myself out of the far-right propaganda, I tried to pull myself out of my depression, and a lot of the sysops here appreciate my effort and are happy with my edits. I know this because I received the autopatrolled privilege. I found a source to refute my 75,000 cases theory, and stopped believing in it. So there goes your worry about the “conspiracy”. COVID=AIDS and masks were trolls. I apologized for that, and people fucking accepted that. I know this, because again, i’m not currently blocked, and I have the autopatrolled privilege. Autopatrolled is specifically used to signify that this user’s edits appear fine, and, you know, don’t need to be patrolled. Every edit after the 3rd has been constructive. And as I’ve reiterated, it’s not just me saying that. I am not far-right anymore. I am moderate right. I find it strange that the far-right was more accepting. And this needs to be said: FUCK TRUMP, FUCK THE ALT RIGHT, FUCK THE KKK, FUCK THE CAPITOL STORMERS, AND FUCK RACISM! There, I said it. It seems strange that a wiki based on rationality and anti-extremism would reject someone who accepts what they did wrong and wants to change. If they didn’t want to change people, then why bash extremism? It would just purely be virtue signaling at that point. I know the left is not fond of that term, but that is what it would be. But I know this wiki is not about that. I know it’s not the “far left, anti right, Marxist, idiot-filled shithole” that the far-right likes to think it is. I know that now That’s why I came here, because I wanted to come out of the propaganda and change my views on the world for the better. And I wouldn’t have been blocked from CP if I didn’t vandalize it as a last “fuck you” to far-right propaganda. If the wiki wanted me gone, I would not be able to type this. Sievert 81 (talk) 07:00, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
Sievert, how old are you? LondonGrump (talk) 09:40, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
@Sievert 81 I am a moderator. It's my business to regularly look at the All things in moderation page, pass comment there and discuss things with other moderators in order to try to do the best for this wiki. It was my contempt for Conservvapedia that led me to RationalWiki in the first place. This page was the first one I ever edited and I still check the changes to it regularly. I am not going out of my way just to follow you around. Spud (talk) 13:49, 12 January 2021 (UTC)
"But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki!" Drink! --Goatspeed. Fossil evidence of my evolutionCircularREmail2.gifasoningMy experiments 20:42, 12 January 2021 (UTC)

So far far removed from reality[edit]

CP: Poll finds only 2% blame President Trump for Capitol riot!
Reality: That's according to the latest unscientific poll of more than 1,900 people at SharylAttkisson.com...
CP has gone so far down. More than I ever thought possible. Acefuck the bozos 23:18, 17 January 2021 (UTC)

Speaking of “far”, anyone notice that they have an attack page on the far-left, but far-right is just a redirect to a paragraph on right wing politics? Sievert 81 (talk) 23:28, 17 January 2021 (UTC)
Nobs' post-lost meltdown on MPR has been delicious to watch. No whackjob blog is too insane to be quoted as news. It's ALL China, ALL Epoch Times now. Honestly - CP under Obama was just Andy being jealous, because Obama was HLR President, now it's just going to be unbridled insanity, and their tears are going to be delicious. And ironically, their new target market still ignores them. How long until they go full QAnon? Oh, and I see Jack Dorsey is a "fascist leader" now. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 10:11, 18 January 2021 (UTC)
