Law Terms watch[edit]

Great news everybody: cp:Law Terms D is back up to almost 90,000 page views - over halfway towards getting back into the popular pages list, and 85,000 views ahead of erstwhile rival cp:Portsmouth F.C. Go Law Terms D!-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 12:17, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

UPDATE: It's also the top result for the search 'Law Terms D' at a popular search engine beginning with Y. Awoogar! This site is growing geometrically!-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 12:42, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
What gets me is why D is the hit. I just went through all 26 and they're all them same. Totnesmartin 17:34, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Please. Do not look at A-C or E-Z. D is the exciting one. Look at it! Notice, across the top, that it lists 1, 3, and 4 before the alphabet. Ponder the metaphysical implications of this (but don't look at them!), and perhaps gain some conservative insightsTM. Gaze appreciatively at the "Category: Law" at the bottom. Look at the page again. Let its fascination, enchantment, and awesomeness wash over your body, cleansing you of any vestiges of liberal style. Let it hold you lovingly in its thrall.

Is anyone with scripting skills able to tally the pagecount of extant pages? I'm curious just how many hits Andy and TK have nuked, yet still proclaimed on the front page. PubliusTalk 01:57, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh, man! TK is a big grouch. However, I do enjoy the way they keep deleting the page and then restoring it again, when it contains no encyclopaedic value (artistic and metaphysical value is a different matter of course).-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 09:24, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Reminder: SES Application[edit]

As per this section, I hereby post the reminder to keep track of the SES Application.

Relevant part from the archive:

The review process can take several months, and the only way to confirm that it's done is if we see Andy listed on the SES website as an approved provider. She suggested that if we check back in late June the review should be done by then.

I didn't keep track of the events between March and now, so maybe this is outdated by more recent events. --Sid 21:30, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, the Arsefly isn't on the list so I guess he got the inevitable EPIC FAIL. It's only surprising we haven't seem him bitterly complain about the evil state denying students his valuable tutelage for such trifling reasons as "competence" and "standards." Bloody lib'ruls. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:23, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
Wow. CP and us hit the top 2 results in google. Nice. Meanwhile neither CP or Schlafly is on the list of approvals or list of approvals pending renewals as of the time I am posting. K61824CP≠Child Porn? 23:32, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Addison's talk page[edit]

Interesting discussion about the justfication of America's wars here. Anyone want to bring up Operation Ajax or Operation PBSUCCESS (American government-sponsored overthrows of democratically elected governments, replacing them with dictators)? We might be able to save the boy from blind patriotism yet. EddyP 10:58, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Ah, but those dictators promised to shoot Communist peasants FIRST, so those were Good and Right. Remember, Pinochet was a humanitarian, though not in the same way as Idi Amin. --Gulik 17:40, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Miss CA (hopefully for the last time)[edit]

Jinx hi Jinx! (or was it Foxtrot?) is going to have a fit over on CP. His little darling, Carrie Preteen has just been stripped of her title... and not because of the oh-so-naughty pics of her that turned up, either. Because she's a brat who didn't feel like going to all the places her contract obliged her to. Countdown to CP spin in ... 4... 3... 2... --PsyGremlinWhut? 13:42, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh, that's delicious. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 13:50, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Unfortunately, if CP comments at all, it will be about her gay marriage comment getting her fired. Obviously a left-wing, liberal, atheist, hiterlesque, evolution loving, Jewish, Hollywood Values conspiracy. The fix was in all the time! I wonder what will surface about the runner-up? Could she have taken science in high school? Did she miss a Sunday at church? Inquiring minds want to knowJimaginator 15:19, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Oh this should be good[edit]

Andy's new fall course is economics. Like with every other course we can expect "Liberal Denials about Economics" and "Greatest Myths of Economics" Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 01:02, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

OMG. Does he even know anything at all about econ beyond layman viewpoints? This will be excellent. Too bad we have to wait until fall. Can't we talk him into offering it as a summer course? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:12, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Not knowing anything about the topic didn't stop him teaching World History. Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 01:17, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
We should expect some of that fantastic conservative maths throughout the course as well. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 01:18, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Here's a taste. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 01:21, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Wouldn't the entire course be two words - tax cuts? --Edgerunner76Your views are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter 01:24, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
How about "Laffer Curve"? Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 01:30, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Darn it! He did economics in Spring 2007. He hasn't done maths yet. We want maths! We want maths! Gauss 01:32, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
There is sort of a "Critical Thinking in Maths" course in the works, but I'm not sure anything but the syllabus is written. I believe CP user Economist has a hand in it. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 01:34, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
"Tax cuts solve everything. Obama is destroying America with government spending"--Nate River 01:38, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Don't forget his hard-on for the Invisible Hand. You know, as in The Invisible Hand of Marriage - a term so obscure that the day after Andy had introduced it, Google showed only one result for it: Us. --Sid 02:06, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Wow, I completely missed that insight. Best is how Andy points out that his insight is more important than that of the founder of modern economic theory. PubliusTalk 02:48, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
The guy was probably a liberal anyway. They got along just fine without modern economic theory in the Middle Ages! -- JArneal 04:19, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Adam Smith is like Jesus--the more often someone mentions him, the less of his teachings they actually understand. (Smith was IN FAVOR of government regulation, since he knew perfectly well businessmen WILL try to rip people off if they think they can get away with it.) --Gulik 04:50, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I tell ya, I wish and hope that next time he does a science course. That would be filled with laughs. Ace McWickedDisco Jesus 04:56, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

The lectures are up right now --Opcn 07:24, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

"Each day billions of buying and selling decisions are made in America. Economics consists of studying those decisions." Quoting slightly out of context is so much fun. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:33, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd just like to point out that there is nothing wrong with the Laffer curve. It is entirely intutitive (tax rate 0%, no revenues; tax rate 100%, no body bothers working therefore no revenues - therefore there is an optimum point between these two extremes). However, Laffer never applied any scales to his curve. When tax cutters refer to the Laffer curve they are just trying to amend the shape and scales to their own benefit.

Gold mine[edit]

Yes it is.

"Economics is basic to our freedom, and is very influential in determining who we elect. Countries that lack economic freedom often lack religious freedom. If we lack rights in deciding what career to go into, then we will lack rights of worship also. "

MOAR![edit]

Andy sez (Lecture 2 footnotes): "The graphs here use Wikipedia open source images."

Who says Wikipedia is biased again? Andy! ThiehTK = Terry Koeckritz 17:01, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Besides the fact that Wikipedia doesn't have "open source" images. They're all covered under the GFDL, which requires Conservapedia to display specific license text, which of course it doesn't. - Cuckoo 17:32, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
"Open source' of course refers to software, what he may mean is Public Domain images which WP does have. However, I hope that people will keep an eye open for those that are GFDL or CCA and let them know.

Sorry every four words I read that that idiot wrote makes me want to spout twenty more here. But you all have your own brains and eyes, so I leave you to your first-hand pleasures. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:37, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I have already found my favourite stupid quote. From lecture 8
Finally, but perhaps most importantly, are government grants of monopoly such as patents and copyrights. Thomas Edison still holds the record for receiving the most number of patents for his inventions. He created more economic wealth than any American, or perhaps anyone in history. (Except for Jesus, that is, whose teachings created the potential for unlimited economic wealth in addition to the obvious spiritual wealth.)
Emphasis mine. - π 07:40, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I am screaming loudly to no one who can hear as I read this drivel that Andy will now "teach" to his victims. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:42, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
After saying "what the fuck" (and variations thereof) for too long, I'm now calm enough to say that Jesus's economic policies amounted to "pay your taxes"[1] and "give all you have to the poor"[2] - but these are older translations. What does the Revised Schlafly Version say? Totnesmartin 09:50, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I think they re-translated "all" into "none". Scarlet A.pngbomination 09:56, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
(from Lecture 1)
Economists would say that beer is scarce, while most of us would say there is too much it.
"Too much beer" is an inherently self-contradictory phrase. This alone invalidates anything else he has to say about economics. Rpeh 10:51, 11 June 2009 (UTC)


"Most of us" -- is that the Royal "us", Andy? I don't even drink (well, I drink very very little), but I know that a definite majority of Americans at least occasional consume alcohol, beer especially. And I wonder how Andy feels about his candidate in the last Presidential being married to a woman whose wealth comes from a beer distributorship.... MDB 11:33, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I dunno if anyone else has seen this, but I personally just love this bit from Lecture Two: "Alternatively, workers enter this country illegally to work at low wages and displace American workers, according to several lawsuits." Really, Andy? Allegations in lawsuits are now considered to be legitimate sources for teaching children? What's next? "Bigfoot marries Elvis according to several websites"? -Drek

Even accepting his point here, who is employing or using the goods or services provided by these illegal workers? What's the betting he pays minimum wage for his yard (garden) maintenance? If he doesn't, being a man of principal as he is, there's still a load of conservatives, and liberals of course - no favourites, who are.

Economics Questions[edit]

I was just scanning lecture one when I noticed this little gem among the "honors" level questions: "7. Read the account of the multiplication of the loaves by Jesus. Matthew 14:13-21. After reading that, do you think scarcity really does exist?" Does anyone even understand what he is even going to with that question? How the frak is that even remotely an appropriate question in anything with a pretense to being an academic course. Kaalis 17:50, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Reading: Jesus multiplies goods out of nothing. Therefore, scarcity does not exist if you can get Jesus to do it for you. Q.E.D. Haven't you check out the indoctrination at the World History Lectures already? ThiehZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 18:06, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Andy loves to pretend scarcity doesn't exist. Remember his Lifeboat Ethics discussion where he claimed that if you are ever in a situation where you're on a sinking ship and there aren't enough lifeboats for everyone your response should be to sue the shipping line since there is no shortage of lifeboats in the world. One problem, Andy... HOW ARE YOU GOING TO SUE ANYONE? YOU'LL BE F***ING DEAD AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DAMNED OCEAN, YOU IDIOT! Stile4aly 18:18, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Since God created Earth for Man, there's plenty of stuff here - God wouldn't have made Earth without enough stuff for us to have a great time, forever. There's enough oil, coal, and all other resources for everyone, for all time. Once you've taken that view onboard, there's really no supply problem, and thus all economic problems are caused by librulz. DogPMarmite Patrol 18:29, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Ahh, I'd forgotten about the Lifeboat discussion. The talk page is still classic CP giggles, with Andy insisting that everyone who died on the Titanic did so voluntarily out of the goodness of their Christian heats. But you're mis-remembering Andy's solution, which was, "Pray, and have faith."--WJThomas 22:32, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

(Unindent) and whoever passed CLEP and give the words for Andy to put on front page news really showed CLEP:Business is freakishly easy (not that I have personally taken it, but I do consider myself good at non-essay test preps) and/or the dude is taking business/finance in a diploma mill.

Lecture Uno[edit]

I've just read the introduction, and it's basically explaining the concept of capitalism in which money is exchanged for goods and services. Thank you. Unsurprisingly, the left wing was dragged in somehow...

...Or money can promote evil, as when communist countries build armies to suppress freedom.

Not that I support communism - at all - but I can just tell straightaway that this whole course is going to involve "teaching" how the American capitalist system is better than everything else, and make sure all his poor students know that nationalisation and centralisation are terrible, terrible things. SJ Debaser 15:00, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

"CP is not biased" -- Assfly[edit]

[3] Me again. Paul 18:07, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Too late, the admins at CP read these pages. You may want to erase your sigs and sign again with an account name. ThiehZOYG I edit like Ken! 18:13, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Just curious, what are these so-called "system-wide rules against bias" that Conservapedia supposedly implements? - Cuckoo 20:23, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

According to the "Conservapedia Commandments", everything must be "true and verifiable", and therefore free of bias. The trick, of course, is that at CP "true" means something approximating "Andy's opinion", and "verifiable" means "anything that agrees with Andy's opinion".--WJThomas 21:27, 11 June 2009 (UTC)


Well you're getting the banhammer over there for sure now. Though it was probably going to happen anyway since you close every post with Godspeed. --PitchBlackMind 20:46, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Just in case TK decides to burn this[edit]

http://conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Talk:Main_Page&diff=prev&oldid=672780img I don't know if it's WIGO worthy, but I think it's worthy of preservation --  Nx/talk  21:12, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Note also TruthKiller's banhammer comment: Only liberals are racists. That puts it over the WIGO threshold, don'cha think?

BTW, the "Conservapedia laws" WIGO is now at 196. A new record (right?) and only 4 away from perfect geometricTM fit! Gauss 21:27, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

I wonder how sincere that email exchange is. But, according to JPatt, only liberals are racist? How blind can you possibly be? Most of the people I work with that drop the N bomb day in and day out associate themselves with Limbaugh, Hannity, etc. And what of Limbaugh in the first place? And what about "Liberal Multiculturalism" as a blockable offense? That sounds awfully shady to me anyways. Piss off. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 21:28, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Didn't you know? "Liberalism is the root of all racism" (go ahead - check who wrote it) --Sid 21:31, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
Fuck, JPatt, I really hope you are a troll and you don't really believe that. Just watch videos of McCain rallies in the '08 election to see who the true racists are. I'm not saying that all conservatives are racist and all liberals aren't. But to claim that liberalism = racism is bullshit. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 21:35, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
That JPatt essay is so over the top, there's no way he believes it. "Racist against the unborn" and "racist against the religious" made me laugh really hard. It's either a pure troll, or I'm convinced that JPatt is a kid.--PitchBlackMind 00:25, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
In fact, TK self-proclaimed James Von Brunn as a liberal: [4], following the argument: "someone embarrassing you? Throw them to the other side!" And besides, a good portion of the comments on the Fox Nation are, from what I understand (I read NewsHounds, which monitors the Fox Nation for me), right-wing racism. I'm sure there are racists on both sides, but most racists associate themselves with radical right-wing causes, not left-wing causes. --Crazyswordsman 21:36, 11 une 2009 (UTC)
Turned another tragic event into another politic finger-pointing. I expected TK to do this earlier. JPiss' comment about only liberals being racist reminds me of the McCain rally where someone was shouting "KILL HIM!" when he spoke about Obama. This shooter hated Obama as much as CP does - but it doesn't matter. Damned him either way. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 21:51, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
I bet TK and Andy think the people who said that were actually liberals who somehow managed to get past not only security but also the ideology screening test to see Palin. --Crazyswordsman 06:00, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
You know, I usually assume anything TK says is just inflammatory bullshit he doesn't believe but I think he's actually xenophobic; the anti-multiculturalism thing a few weeks ago was unprecedented, while normally he uses an already existing excuse to block and delete (MYOB, talk, talk, talk...) he just took the initiative and started purging CP of multiculturalism, that, previous comments (particularly uncalled for attacks against europeans) and of course things like this make me think he's serious. FlareTalk 22:08, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Some Quality Sources, There, Andy-Pandy![edit]

I decided to take a peek at their source for the claim that the Holocaust Museum shooter is a liberal Democrat atheist evolutionist commie Obama supporting abortionist. The first lines from this "political expert?"

The media is a abuzed about this, and the lefty blogs are acting as though this being some nuance of the right.

Tk is a pretty bad writer in general, and since he does this weird "up for 50 hours crash for 20" thing, late in the fifty hour day he becomes even more incoherent. He's most excellent when separating the subject from the predicate with a comma (an error others make, of course, but he's partial to it). TK in short:

I wish I had an account over there to egg him into the bible rewrite reflecting Conservapedia Law. Somehow tie it to conservative words.

It's the bit about Wikipedia that makes it true art. The rest of it is just his usual insanity expressing itself, but the last line actually made me laugh out loud. You really couldn't make this up. Rpeh 04:58, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

The Conservapedia law clashes with one of Andy's former insights, i.e., Article count beyond a certain critical mass (say 20,000 entries) doesn't have any particular significance. People who are interested can look at the statistics. But fewer than 20,000 entries, and perhaps fewer than 10,000 entries, are of any value to 99% of visitors. But if the insights were interesting enough to lead to new articles , one should expect a exponential growth of Conservapedia:

This is awesome. My favourite bit is Andy talking about historical inevitability, which makes him sound like a Marxist (though obviously with different ideals).-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 08:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Just a back-of-the-envelope calculation: CP has 1% of the number of articles of WP. According to Aschlafly, most of the interesting insights are covered. But the rate with which new conservative terms originate doubles each century. So, taking CP to double its volume each century, we can expect it to match WP in log2100 centuries = 664 years (666 years after the start of CP!). Yes, it's time for WP: Another implication is that Wikipedia, in order to survive, will inevitably feel compelled to adopt principles similar to Conservapedia's. The liberal practices and rules underlying Wikipedia will either be abandoned or lead it to inevitable ruin. --larronsicut fur in nocte 12:26, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

This isn't a surprise. Andy is following lockstep in previous footsteps. He is no different than any of the other whackjobs that have predicted the end-of-the-world or Jesus coming back or whatever. He'll be disappointed just as they were. --Edgerunner76Your views are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter 14:08, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Apart from the obvious idiotic nature of Conservapedia Law, they can't even get Moore's law right in the essay. Andy pukes: "Conservapedia's Law is analogous to Moore's Law, which holds that the rate of increase in the number of transistors per chip roughly doubles every two years." If the rate of increase doubles every 2 years then, assuming over the first two years the number of transitors per chip doubles, then we sould see: 4 times as many in year 4 over year 2, 8 times as many in year 6 over year 4, 16 times as many in year 8 over year 6 etc. By year eight we would have 2*4*8*16=1024 times as many transistors. In fact Moore's law predicts 16 times as many by year 8. An editor tried to recitfy this error and reverted because, according to Andy "which one my ass and which one is my elbow?" Schlafly "Your edit obscured rather than clarified, and earned a reversion." JoeDuffy 14:58, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

What would be great is if folks started contributing new, justifiably conservative words to Andy's pet article, but only in the earlier centuries, so he'd either have to lock the article down despite no vandalism taking place, or scramble to pile on more "obviously conservative" words like transistor into the later centuries to maintain to uphold Conservapedia's Law. --SpinyNorman 15:21, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

Do not go gentile into that good knight -[edit]

Charts[edit]

I've seen charts that show how Andy's empire fares in terms of traffic rank, but I couldn't seem to find any chart that tracks the number of contributions to it, at least not over the course of more that a week or so. I had some bandwidth to burn, so I made one.

Edits by month.png

At the time I started this there were 43,960 pages in the article namespace according to Special:AllPages. This number includes 12,773 redirects, a total of 558 Debate, Essay, and Mystery pages, a total of 680 Homework, Lecture, and Model Answers pages, and a total of 657 useless Terms lists. These page counts leave you with a whopping 29,292 actual articles. What I did was request the histories of all these articles and screenscrape all the revision timestamps out of them. I had to make Andy send me complete HTML pages because I'm too stupid to use the API, but homeschooling is up 74% so he can afford it.

Of course this approach dramatically underexposes Conservapedia's early days because it doesn't see the many edits lost in all those wacky purges of yore. Even so, the decline is fairly apparent. Special free bonus: The second image shows what you get if you only count the first edit in every history, i.e. if you only count contributions that create rather than just modify articles.

New articles by month.png

What is not immediately obvious at this resolution is that May 09 was an all-time low. There seem to have been 254 new articles this last month, slightly less than the 272 new articles of February 09 and even the 269 new articles of July 08. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Ideas for future research: If anybody is interested in that sort of thing, I could tweak my scripts to filter out (a) reverts and (b) revisions immediately preceding reverts. This would allow us to track the number of (a) actual contributions that (b) actually get accepted. Alternatively, I could start screenscraping article byte counts; this would let us chart actual net growth instead of just numbers of randomly-sized steps of growth.

I'll be overseas for about a week, on a secret mission codenamed Asia Gets the Banhammer, but as soon as I'm back I'd be happy to share my code if anybody needs it. Mountain Blue 22:01, 10 June 2009 (UTC)

The statistic that I think would be telling is: in a given month, how many different people make (non-talk) edits that (a) weren't reverted within, say, two weeks, and (b) were made by a person who wasn't banhammered within two weeks. Lately it seems that only Ken and RJJ are making significant edits. And, of course, re-creating, editing, and deleting "gentlemen" pages doesn't count, and thereby puts Ken out of the running. TK makes a few actual edits when he isn't reverting and banning. Same for Kara. ADM and JPatt are about the only other serious people. Everyone else is quickly driven off as a troll, rightly (in many cases) or wrongly (also in many cases.) I give CJH another week or so. Gauss 22:14, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
I doubt CJH stays around a week, that spat over the bad statistics has probably put him in 90/10 territory, heck, do they still enforce 90/10? --Opcn 22:44, 10 June 2009 (UTC)
As long as CJH drops it, they will stay as far away as possible from it. That's their way of conceding. I doubt  K e n  D o l l  pops his head in because even he knows what's up. If Terry Koeckritz was going to have a go at him, he'd have done it already. CJH needs to make sure that his next edit isn't on a talk page or else that'll do it. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 00:31, 11 June 2009 (UTC)
 K e n  D o l l  did pop in, and what he said made no sense.

Gauss: No problem, assuming that by "reverted" you mean "explicity reverted, with an edit that says reverted in the comment, and there are no other edits between the two of them". If you mean "either explicity reverted or undone in some other way": that would need some serious artificial intelligence. Mountain Blue 08:54, 11 June 2009 (UTC)

Your appreciation is appreciated. I'm currently preparing one of the statistics Gauss has suggested: number of contributors by month, counting only those contributors that fail to get banhammered for their efforts more or less within the hour. Stupid me, I threw away all those article histories I downloaded, immediately after extracting the timestamps I needed for my first two charts... now I have to download all those pages again. I must be single-handedly doubling Andy's bandwidth bill. So sorry. Mountain Blue 10:35, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Those charts are pretty fucking spectacular, LArron; thanks for sharing. What exactly does "editors per day (blocked)" mean? Is that the number of editors blocked that day, or the number of editors making contributions that day that subsequently get blocked? Or something completely different. Oh, and many thanks for explaining the API. I had no idea it was that simple; I had given up some fifty lines into the documentation. Mountain Blue 05:13, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Thanks - it's the number of editors making contributions that day that subsequently get blocked, or, more precisely, the number of editors making contributions that day and who are blocked today. This includes a handful of editors whose blocks are shorter than five years... larronsicut fur in nocte 07:03, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
So these things things pretty much answer Gauss's Question B then. I'm going to make bar diagrams for Question A: the number of contributions the conservapedos leave standing, and the number of editors that make them, by month. Mountain Blue 07:21, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Moratorium on TK news WIGOs please[edit]

TK's a disgusting xenophobic hate-filled troll. So what would you expect from his new entries? I respectfully propose a moratorium on dignifying them with anything more than talk page responses. Ken and Jpatt seem to truly believe what they write. Andy's a fucking moron who doesn't know his ass from a hole in the ground. But TK. TK knows exactly what he's doing. He feeds and lives on hate. As obvious trolling attempts, whether to draw people to the Talk/Main page from whence they may be disappeared or to indulge TK's fantasy of being anything more than an intellectual eunuch, TK's news entries doesn't deserve our energy and indignation. 70.228.38.134 17:45, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

The problem is that since Ken decided to cut back on his conributions to CP (am I hallucinating?) the only events of note are largely TK related. Thank goodness Andy has started on his economics course, maybe that will give us some light relief. TK is a felcher extraordinaire, so he licks out of Andy's arse at every opportunity. I am puzzled as to why he keeps at it though. He has effectively suffocated CP as a going concern and apart from Addison none of the students seem to contribute any more. There is not much more he could do to kill off CP as all new editors now must be saboteurs of some description. As for TK's news items, I don't recall him being so gung-ho about adding new ones; it was always Crock o'shite's purlieu before TK came back from his 40 days in the wilderness. Even if TK gets his craved-for bureaucatship, I don't see what good it will do him. Knowing of TK's history at Hot or Not, I can only assume TK gets some perverse sadistic pleasure akin to pulling wings off flies. Redchuck.gif Генгисpillaging 21:00, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Since I first became aware of CP (long before I joined RW) I wondered about TK. He's the personification of Poe's law so either he needs locking up in a nice cell with deeply-padded walls or he is due for some kind of award for single-handedly fucking up CP. I hadn't previously commented about TK because to my mind he is such an obvious parodist that to mention him breaks the WIGO guidelines about exposing parody, but recent activity suggests either that he's for real or that he's losing his touch for subtlety. (parody subtlety I mean, not subtlety in the general sense).
 K e n  D o l l  is so obviously trying to deny that he's gay that it's almost tempting to send him love letters just to see how he reacts. Now I know that sort of thing is normally not nice, but given the tone of his posts I think it would be almost justifiable. The only tricky bit is coming up with a plausible reason for the attraction: "Your well-thought-out posts have warmed my heart" would be parody obvious to anybody.
As for Teh Assfly... what worries me is that he is passing on his ignorance to a new generation. I'm sure I don't have to elaborate further as he sprays appropriate examples all over CP. Rpeh 23:01, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

Its a shame Andy never defined a conservative word in any way that wasn't entirely based on his judgement[edit]

Lets just come out and say what we have all been thinking, It would have been great if someone added twenty words from the 1600's that were conservative, throwing of his fudged data. Sadly up until this point the only thing a word needs to do to be conservative is to fit the desired model of expansion. --Opcn 08:34, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Actually, I suspect that most of us have just been laughing at Andy's "fit the 'data' to the preconception" thing. Works very well for laughter. Screw people bothering to find the three remaining IPs that can join CP and editing it in order to play our your fantasy - why not do it yourself? ħumanUser talk:Human 08:40, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

Obama's "flip-flops"[edit]

Well, I don't know quite what he wears on his feet to the beach, but the whole "pretending to be Liberal" thing really underscores why it's a fool's game to attempt to build bridges to modern Conservatives. Simply put, if you don't deal with them you're a traitor to the country (which is identified as them, they are the country), and if you do deal with them then you're not only not to be trusted but a traitor to the other side, and any deal is worthless to them unless it involves total capitulation on all counts. Courting moderates is worth it, it'll make a stronger base in the long run. But the more extreme types? Screw 'em. --Kels 16:31, 13 June 2009 (UTC)

As much as I agree with that, I don't like grouping them together as "modern conservatives". I want there to be more rational conservatives out there, but it sure is hard to find them these days. They get lost in the sea of loonies. I wish the conservative movement could uncouple itself from religion/anti-science. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 17:20, 13 June 2009 (UTC)
Absolutely. We NEED there to be strong, intelligent, conservatives out there - political thought is a marketplace of ideas and it's not good when one faction disappears up its own fundament. The disappearance of the secular conservative is a disgrace to the Right, a total abdication of responsibility. They won't be vocal again for some time, either, I predict. DogPMarmite Patrol 09:26, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
I'd love to see more rational conservatives out there, in both our countries. But modern Conservatism, unfortunately, has become dominated by the lunatics who made it into a "movement" (with all the baggage that entails) and so-called rationals who were only too happy to let them because they kept winning elections. The fact that now they have buyer's remorse doesn't exactly let them off the hook for aiding and abetting. --Kels 18:26, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

As errors at CP go, I think it's minor. Give credit where credit is due: Andy at least wrote a two-sentence science article that, aside from that numerical error, is sensible. But not to worry—Andy's utter stupidity is on display elsewhere: In [5], he thinks that, because "fission" was introduced in 1617, that means "nuclear fission" is "not a new idea after all".

Wigo-ing students[edit]

With the recent "News" item about a student giving his "Unsolicieted" (Sure, just like America was using "Enhanced interrogation" and not torture) opinion on the economics course, I have a few witty (or sophomoric... actually, mostly sophomoric) things I want to say about Andy's brainwashing having been successful. However, I'm not sure what the policy is about WIGOing the students. I'm under the impression that it is frowned upon. Anyone care to enlighten me? --Passerby25 02:56, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

It is largely frowned upon, although I don't remember anyone removing a WIGO because of it. Please remember it is mostly the parents fault as they have chosen to send their children to Schlafly's classes, you can't blame them for how they have been raised they will need a few years in the real world before you can criticise them for what they say. - π 03:43, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
It's important to note that the quote in question is from a former student now of college age. In other words, old enough to know better. The current students are victims, and it's just not funny to mock a victim. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 04:13, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
It still doesn't seem all that WIGO-worthy - one of Andy's indoctrinated former students provides an endorsement of Andy's indoctrination. There's probably a "Stockholm Syndrome" joke in there somewhere, but with quality offerings like "Conservapedia's Law", it's better to focus on a few prime examples instead. There have been too many low and negative-rated WIGOs as it is. --SpinyNorman 14:10, 12 June 2009 (UTC)
As an aside, every time I see the words "Conservapedia's Law", I can't help but think of "Brannigan's Law". Just had to put that out there. --SpinyNorman 14:12, 12 June 2009 (UTC)

I remember reading an article off site somewhere that did this successfully. It's premise was how liberals vs. conservatives see America. The article said that liberals see America as a nation that uses America's history, lessons, triumphs, and failures to note how America is always a nation in learning, and how we should celebrate our victories and learn from our mistakes (such as slavery). Conservatives, the article says, ask "so, how else is slavery like gay marriage?"

After all this time, I wouldn't expect any less. Funny how one terrible event can be spun in two totally different, yet equally deplorable ways, branching off the exact same tagline.

Yes, every side, in every war thinks, nay, demands that God or Gods be on their side. Considering the bloodshed in the bible, I guess it's no surprise.

The polytheistic theory of Judaism suggests there was an entire pantheon of gods. This makes the first person plural of Genesis 1 a bit more understandable, as with the ease of which the Israelites of the OT fall back into polytheism. Killing a good chunk of the populace in the exodus is looked at as a purge of those who did not accept the cult (at that time) of the Ten Commandments. For some other more tangible items, some artifacts that were uncovered that appear to agree with the copper scroll location and thus would be from the original Temple were decorated with polytheistic/pagan motifs. The word 'elohim' was a reference to the entire court of deities in ancient cannonite religion. Anyways... YHVH was thought to be the war god of the pantheon who had some monotheistic priests who established the cult of the Ten Commandments that later became Judaism (just as some fishermen and a carpenter had what was seen as a small cult in Judaism about two millennia ago).

Origin of words[edit]

That's the funniest thing I've seen from Andy in quite a while. "Fission" shows he's so fixated on getting dates for words that he isn't reading the definitions themselves (Andy, they're right there next to those numbers). Let me guess, since "fission" apparently originated in 1617, and that can only refer to nuclear physics, it must have been coined by a male American teenage conservative creationist whom the Liberal elites in Big Science have been suppressing ever since! But it took them 300 years to catch up! Another CP victory!!! Also note how theism itself obviously didn't originate with its word in 1678 because it was such an "obvious position" that it must have been around for a long time already, but 'flagpole' is so obscure that actual vertical extended flag display devices clearly could not have existed before 1884. At the same time, it's interesting that he claims that the root word of atheism developed 91 years after the word that it's in. That's like airplanes being invented in 1903, with the first wings produced a few decades later. Or, to use a completely random and hypothetical example, nuclear fission being discovered 294 years before nuclei... Kalliumtalk 05:58, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

I think it's good to know Andy's back to being funny. This Conservapedia Law thing of his made me suspect he'd gone officially off to being clinically insane. Seriously, I sorta started to get worried for him there. Mountain Blue 06:28, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Hilarious! What did flags hang on for centuries before that? Umm, perhaps a flag-pole? Or just a flag pole? What's about telegraph pole? If these word are sometimes melted into one, does this mean that wired telegraphy will be possible at last? larronsicut fur in nocte 06:44, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Helping our mad old pal, Ken[edit]

Ken's marathon session

Somebody needs to help Ken. He's been editing CP now right through the night, for at least 12 hours straight (he owns the vast majority of 'Show Last 500 changes'), with breaks no longer than 10 or fifteen minutes until midnight, then absolutely no breaks since server time midnight, 6 hours ago. I don't know what timezone he's in, but assuming it's in the US, this doesn't look good. Ken, you should talk to your doctor about this, maybe your meds are making you unable to sleep. Not sleeping is a good way to go CRAZY. Seek some help, it's not healthy. DogPMarmite Patrol 10:11, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

There's very good reason to believe he dwells in the EST zone. But I do believe he has commented on problems from sleep deprivation in the past and said that he has overcome this but sadly now appears to be backsliding (just like his promise to cut back on editing). Ken, heed DogP's advice for your own sake! Look after yourself. It's only a crummy website you know. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 10:21, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
If he keeps it up, Andy'll have to go back on his "0 mental health problems from his contributors" slogan. Or, maybe he'll just get his lover TK to banhammer whoever mentions that Kendoll's an insomniac... SJ Debaser 10:37, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
I think most of the SDG members regard Ken as a bit "special" and rather like the Jasper Carrott sketch about the "nutter on the bus" (Why me, Lord?) they try and ignore him if they can. Strangely, we are probably more concerned about Kens's wellbeing than all those caring "Christians" at CP and I believe that Ken has more of a rewarding relationship with us then he does with Andy et al - as the old saying goes "the opposite of love is not hate, it is indifference". Ken has admitted to some health issues but always denies any "mental" problems. I think the evidence shows that at the very least he has poor social skills, probably a low self-esteem and a disposition towards obsessive/compulsive behaviour patterns (don't we all to some degree). I regards his user page links to self-help websites as postive proof that he needs re-affirmation of his own worth (which is what most self-help books do) and being able to point to his holy trinity of atheism, evolution and homosexuality articles gives him the esteem which obviously lacks in the real world. The sad part about that of course is that he does not present these articles under his own name but hides behind an alias. (I do the same here of course, but then I am not endeavouring to get the internet to regard me with awe because any of my writings on RW.) Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 11:13, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
I agree.

At an Andy meetup I'd probably be thrown out of the pub and/or arrested for GBH. Anyway, Ken, send us a Gentlemen message and let us know what's up. DogPMarmite Patrol 11:30, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

I had contemplated making the session begin at 23:57 on Friday night, when he edited until 2am-ish, but that struck me as normal-ish. Looking back into the week, on Thursday he edited a 'normal' amount, and earlier in the week looked 'normal' too - I'm sure any of us idiots might have edited as much ourselves. But it really seems like something happened when he got up at 11am Saturday - he just went to work and edited like a crazed weasel until a nap Sunday morning, whereafter he just picked right up after lunch and went back at it.

Miss California was NOT dethroned because of her beliefs[edit]

Unlike what Andy, or she, thinks, she was dethroned because of her actions (or more precisely, her inactions, ie her lack of attendance at charity events that beauty queens have to go to as part of their contract). --Crazyswordsman 15:46, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Ah, but you forget liberal deceit - that's just the reason they gave to cover up the fact they didn't want some pro-lifer running the show, especially when God told her she didn't have to attend the charity do's (they were for liberal organisations, after all). open your mind and lose credibility. --PsyGremlinWhut? 15:57, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Andy's not even trying anymore[edit]

Looking at his reply to Umlaut regarding e-mails, Andy's not even trying to be civil to his editors anymore. "Please post legitimate suggestions here, or please move on. Godspeed." I mean, I know the man is an insufferable boor, but it's like the editors of his "greater-than-WP-blog" are becoming more of a nuisance to him. Maybe the novelty's starting to wear off. --PsyGremlinWhut? 16:07, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

The novelty has long since worn off for the Assfly. CP is just a convenient place for him to dump his homskolling courseware and any random thought that comes in to his brain.

Yes, but Andy could never really get his head round proper categorisation, he thought a hierarchical structure would confuse his students and tried to impose a single level approach. All the other term lists were created as a way to suck up to Andy. There are several examples of new students starting off with these generally empty lists. I think the majority of DeborahB.'s edits which got her a sysopship were just churning out these alaphabetic list templates. The term lists are completely unworkable because somebody has to make the effort to actually edit the list and add the so-called "term" rather than adding a cat to the required page. Also categories aid navigation whereas the stupid term-lists just hinder it. Redchuck.gif Генгисmutating 18:12, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

TK banhammered Umlaut earlier for being a "member of a website supporting vandalism". Anyone here? SJ Debaser 19:40, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Me. I pointed out that Andy didn't have an email address, when he demands that everyone else does- see the WIGO. I created this account after getting banned (for only three months, which was a suprise) for pointing out that anti-hacking laws don't apply to wikis.

From MediaWiki - "The Oversight extension adds a user class that allows revisions to be permanently hidden from all users. Note that the revisions can only be restored by a developer."
And there are some handy instructions froma delighted user
  1. click on history tab
  2. click on the revision that you want to hide
  3. you get redirected to the old page that you want to hide and you see the tab hide revision on the top
  4. click on the hide revision tab -- NOT the delete tab!
  5. you get redirected to Permanently hide revisions page
  6. type in the Reason box - this is a required field

Regarding "nsTeam1RW": Long time ago (back when CP had a halfway stable cast of editors, as opposed to the current "a few sysops plus people who last less than a day" setup), CP had contests. Week-long team events to see who could improve CP the most by creating and editing articles. (See also Category:Conservapedia Contest.) To enable the teams to coordinate their actions better, they created special "secret" namespaces for each team and the judges. Only team members with the proper user rights were able to access them (or that had been the plan, at least). So that's what the right means: "Namespace Team 1 Read/Write"
They later (or was that before?) also added a "secret" sysop mainspace, but that quickly turned out to be a bad idea because pretty much EVERYBODY could read it by various means. --Sid 22:25, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
(ECx2)nsTeam1RW refers to the heydays of CP when they would have delightful, friendly editing competitions. Which Andy would then contest because his team invariably lost. The teams had their own secret namespaces where they could share Government websites which they could freely copy and paste from, nsTeam1RW was one of those namespaces. As well as showing Andy's incredible churlishness and lack of sportsmanhip the competitions gave us a list of US-registered boats all the way from A to well A, and a couple of Bs. Such happy days!  Lily Inspirate me. 22:26, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Andy lost the contests because he would pick his team the same way he picks his sysops, cronies rather than contributors. - π 22:36, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah yes, I miss the heady days of contest 3 when I added about 50% of the USDA glossary and Andy threw a shit-fit and got all the points tossed out and called the contest judges to sanction TK (my team's captain) for failing to control his team. I think this might have precipitated TK's demotion and departure. Stile4aly 22:56, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
It's such a shame they don't have those contests any more. They were such good sources of lulz, the filled CP up with shite and they were good ways to get your socks promoted. Ah, how great the days of yore were. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:14, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Basically what TK can now do is "incinerate", rather than just "deep burn" pages. Note that what he recently did (prior to this "promotion") to Andy's talk page was a deep burn. He had to delete the talk page of the site owner in order to "hide" something from us. Such an action would be considered insane on any sane wiki. Thank Deity for capturebot! He probably then went to Andy and said "If you gave me oversight, I wouldn't have to burn your talk page. Pretty please?" Gauss 00:57, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

His choice of language, "they are forging them to perpetrate a fraud", is interesting.

The likelihood of that ever happening is extremely low. TK is not overly concerned with the actual truth, just the presentable truth.

Natha.net[edit]

Amusingly, as I was following the fair use chat on wigo [11], I wanted more info, so I went to the article, went to the flower image page [12], and clicked on the "source" link (which is dead). So I worked up to the root. Natha.net, apart from looking like a fun source for debunking projects, features liberal use of photographs/drawings of naked women (and probably men?).

From their article on sexual continence... [13]
"It all starts from the scientific fact that orgasm and ejaculation – for the man – or the specific squirt – for the woman – are not necessarily connected. There are many situations known when orgasm is plenary experienced without the physiological squirt. The scientific perspective suggested and proved as an explanation to this phenomenon the theory of the biological transmutation of matter for low energies, even inside the human body. This shows that man’s sperm and woman’s sexual fluids can turn into energy inside the human body, according to Einstein’s famous formula E=mc2. The calculation shows that such energy is huge and it stays inside our body at different levels, which secures the above-mentioned advantages."

Fair use tests[edit]

One of the tests for fair use spelled out in 17 U.S.C. § 107 is the purpose and character. Does it advance the understanding of the subject at hand? This has two questions that need to be answered:

  • Has the material you have taken from the original work been transformed by adding new expression or meaning?
  • Was value added to the original by creating new information, new aesthetics, new insights and understandings?

A flower does not advance the knowledge of the subject (flowers are quite promiscuous). The image has not been transformed by adding new expression or meaning, nor was any new information aesthetics, insights or understandings added by the inclusion of the flower. This fails fair use test #1. It also fails tests #2 and #3 quite easily. The question of if it has impacted the potential market is debatable, but still - tests #1, 2, and 3 are failed.

So, is this the demise of WIGO?[edit]

Now that TK has oversight he will undoubtedly oversight away as many lulz as possible just to piss in our corn flakes. All the Best of Conservapedia past that we've collected is practically unreadable thanks to all the deep burning. Capturebot will probably be a short term solution at best. Eventually we'll be storing so many screen caps that storage and bandwidth will begin to become an issue and could at some point become untenable. CP is clearly so far down the path to madness that it has long ceased to be a source of novel humor, merely just new iterations of Andy's insanity, TK's masterful trolling, and the continued quixotic charges of true believers. At what point does WIGO become a fond memory of lulz past? Stile4aly 04:15, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

To be honest the current lulz, other than the Conservapedia law, have been a pale imitation of the past for a few months now. Image storage is not a problem, the pictures aren't that big but bandwidth is and so is CPU time because of the rubbishy way MediaWiki stores files. Trent was looking at an image server to get around that, but that may have petted out. To be honest I think we need to get the other big three going more, world, clogs and blogs. CP is now a tragedy, not a comedy. - π 04:28, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Even if those are his plans, he can't be everywhere at once. Besides, I think looking at the WIGO page for updates on himself is one of the pleasures in his life.

He is not a bureaucrat yet and probably will never be one.

TK is not called TeamKiller for nothing. He is not a natural wiki-player and his role at CP has never been more than a thug. His mainspace "contributions" have largely been copy/pastes because he is not interested in making CP an encyclopedia his aim is to get his sadistic kicks, as Kevin warned us about him. The problem is that the more successful he becomes the less kicks he's going to get out of it because there won't be enough "action" so expect more oppression of his fellow sysops if they are not fully "on message".

Forged screenshots[edit]

Of course, if the original diff link was still extant then that could prove whether a screencap was forged or not.

At least Jallen, Kara and Dean used it sparingly and normally only to revert vulgarities and the like.

One can show bias or deceit quite easily at CP, but examples of flat out lying are not that common. Well done TK. You have shown yourself to be a liar. It is now clear to anyone that moral victory is ours. I suspect even the majority of admins and users at CP now know you are a liar. Can't wait to see what's next. StarFish 13:51, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Ah, wait. Liar is too ill-defined for the purpose here. He's not spreading "falsehood" (As CP probably defines it); he's simply not letting you see what happened (he doesn't have his false version to spread, that's what separates him from liars). Subtle differences there, pal. ThiehWho is Terry Koeckritz anyways? 14:57, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
I believe where he states the screenshots are faked he is deliberately spreading falsehoods and is a flat out liar. Deleting the content from the page is deceit. Saying the screen captures are faked is lying IMO. I stand by my words. StarFish 15:32, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

It was certainly a lie, however, he will somehow insinuate that this is not a lie because we can neither account for nor prove the validity of every single screen capture the RW community has ever taken. Of course the burden is on him to prove a screen cap is fraudulent (as his claim is a positive one for the fraudulence of our caps), but stupid people rarely place the burden of proof correctly.

"Forged screencaps" has been TopsyKnocker's defence for a while now (and it's getting a bit lame. You need to come up with something fresh while you sit in mummy's basement, you grizzled wanker), especially when he was caught out slagging off CP the last time he was trying to bring it down - a good example is the one Helpjazz provided. That was edited and doesn't say anything near to what TK meant... according to TK. What amazes me, is how he managed to convince Andy that his opening the SDG to everybody, was actually a special seekrit undercover operation he was running. I wonder what his excuse this time will be? --PsyGremlinWhut? 16:33, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Defence to whom!? Is there a large audience of potential CP-contributors that we're unaware of, which are being continually deceived by RW's hatemongering, to whom TK needs to respond? No one on earth is reading his defences outside this circle. PubliusTalk 18:16, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

The best part of that edit is the summary: "removed "constitutional" because its origin had nothing to do with a "constitution"; it's amazing how removal of clear mistakes like this one restores the perfect geometric fit".

So, Anti-islam, Anti-Jewry, Anti-Hindu never existed, or everyone are doing it in addition to Atheists. that explains a lot of things he said on his blog.

Not Really[edit]

Operation Asia is officially cancelled. I actually went to Asia last Friday, and I was scheduled to go to Tehran tomorrow, do some consulting, and leave next weekend to Rhiyad, via Dubai. Tehran, Rhiyad, and the Dubai airport have hotspots like you wouldn't believe, and they all go through an extremely narrow range of IP addresses. My plan was simply to flitter and prance and flutter and dance from access point to access point and programmatically improve a random article or two at every stop. Beautiful little butterfly that I am, I'm extremely good at that flitter thing, you know. I would've had quite a gay time, and it should have been exquisitly delicious to see TK rain a couple /16s on the Socialists of Dubai, the Liberals of Saudia Arabia, or the Atheists of the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Alas, Andy's fellow conservatives in Iran apparently don't want any additional witnesses to how they bring the hammer down on their liberals IRL, so they cancelled, among others, my whole fucking gig. Because, kids, this is what happens when bitter, bigoted mysogynists with bad teeth and failed careers run nations instead of websites nobody reads: actual people actually fucking die. We're actually quite lucky to live in areas in which pathetic little creeps like Andy and his enforcers are just that: pathetic little creeps. Sorry, but I really had to vent now.

I don't know how to record it, but TK disappeared some of the CJH edits[edit]

Vasopressin, a pretty darn innocuous edit I did, has gone missing, lies/vandalism. I had a clear and authoritative scientific source and made four claims. 1) It's called ADH, 2) It is released from (but not manufactured in) the pituitary 3) It is involved in Male-partner bonding and 4) It causes the body to maintain its water. This oversighter thing is going to be a bigger problem than I had previously thought. --Opcn 16:53, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Grab some popcorn, sit back and watch TK make everything disappear over time. TK is going to use oversight like a blunt object rather than a scalpel. But then, using a scalpel would imply TK has opposable thumbs. --PsyGremlinWhut? 17:08, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

You're probably right. TK will go straight for the incinerator. But Andy may be a bit squeamish about it. Here, he reverted someone's "threatening rant" and blocked him. But Andy only reverted ("shallow burned"). It was later incinerated, I would guess by TK. Otherwise Andy would probably have incinerated it himself.

Not sure why that's anything special. It's not that hard if you really feel like going through the trouble. Just open a bunch of tabs to the edit pages and submit all the changes at rapid speed. You could probably pull off 50 in a minute or two if you had a quick finger. --PitchBlackMind 17:55, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
That's actually quite a good way to get vandalism through. A team of three people, one to vandalise and two to revert. The reverters obscure everything (but leave one piece of vandalism) and make it hard to see what's been reverted - if the vandal makes 20+ edits, something might get through.

The future of claims of faked screenshots[edit]

TK suggested that some of our screenshots are faked. I doubt anyone will believe this about any particular screenshot. First, everything we post on WIGO is believable, but already about as outrageous as imaginable. Unless TK starts to drop N-bombs, no screenshot will be so out of character from the diffs that don't get covered up that the screenshot will seem unbelievable.

Second, edit numbers are sequential, so oversight should, assuming it doesn't renumber every edit, leave a trace.

As a preventative mechanism, we might consider WebCite, which produces third-party screenshots. See also Iterasi and kwout. Coarb 19:34, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah I got it too Rpeh. It was part joke and part attempt to increase TKs paranoia. It was in no part a serious suggestion.

Skillfully using his absolute control over the press wiki, he gradually built up the legend of the "Duce" "Dick", a man who was always right and could solve all the problems of politics and economics. Italy Conservapedia was soon a police state. With those who tried to resist him, for example the Socialist Giacomo Matteotti Ames Grawertti, he showed himself utterly ruthless. But Mussolini Assolini's skill in propaganda was such that he had surprisingly little opposition.(Grolier Encyclopedia)

I can't believe I hadn't seen this before either. That clinches JPatt for me. Well done, brother.--PitchBlackMind 22:12, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

He's taking names[edit]

That's just creepy. Bjones 22:31, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

I guess that gives us free rein to use his full name in every mention now. Redchuck.gif Генгисunbelieving 22:36, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Tmtoulouse ... I would consider Americanizing, how on earth are you supposed to say that? I wonder if I could get my name on the list ... --Opcn 22:50, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

Dude! That's not my name, my name is Trent Toulouse, my user id is tmtoulouse, it comes from my full name Trent Morgan Toulouse. Come on TK, its on my damn user page. tmtoulouse 23:15, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

The little troll is clearly running out of people to harass on his own wiki. Corry 23:19, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Thing is, he will have to do better than that, the three of us are old school veterans of TK and all of his tactics. We have been the focused harassment of multiple CP sysops who have tried to damage our "real life" reputations. None of them were remotely successful. You would be hard pressed to find three people more immune to his trolling than us. tmtoulouse 23:24, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Or three people less likely to bother faking CP screenshots. But it is amusing to be famous, if only briefly. I wonder if I can get a lawyer to send Andy a letter requesting that he remove the slander or libel or whatever it is from his web site? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:51, 15 June 2009 (UTC)
Better yet, sue him in small claims court. Use the discovery portion of the process to request all records re CP, including funding, secret communications (probably containing more libel), and so on. Maybe throw in a goodly number of interrogatories for Andy to answer. Could be fun.--WJThomas 00:00, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Just to twist the internets panties into a Mobius strip and stuff them into a Klein bottle, let's see him call this a forgery! ħumanUser talk:Human 23:57, 15 June 2009 (UTC)

I suspect he used those names since they're the only three he knows right off. I'm sure he could find mine and a few others easily enough, but he's got those right at hand so why bother? --Kels 00:09, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Nooooooooooooo it's becoz we're teh rulzorz of teh Fandal Sight! ħumanUser talk:Human 01:22, 16 June 2009 (UTC) (timestamp a bit later than actual post due to forgery)
Hey Terry Koeckritz, other people have names too, so STFU if you can't get the whole list. Now let's see how Terry Koeckritz's creepiness will match up with the Church of Scientology. Prediction: epic fail of TK to get the complete list of our names. K61824[Talk needed] 01:25, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm willing to give him mine along with my address if he really wants to tally names. If there's anyone we shouldn't be scared of it's Terry Koeckritz.--PitchBlackMind 01:33, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
Hey TopKracker, why don't you put my name up on your userpage? After all, I'm the superhero of the group.... I can teleport myself from Denver to Salt Lake for vandalism purposes..... SirChuckBPenguin Knight, First Class 03:30, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
TK: "I am going to add more names, and not stop there, but link to it other places, like Ken has shown us to do.
Why?
Because you keep using my full name, in spite of your ex-admin's promise to stop it. Therefore I am going to link your names to the same types of things you keep doing to me. Fair is fair."
Let the hilarity ensue! ħumanUser talk:Human 06:27, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Be careful, folks. Remember, Tk knows people. --Gulik 06:34, 16 June 2009 (UTC)

Ex-admin's promise? Sorry but what weight does that carry round here? Ames is no longer an active contributor but devotes his spare time to his blog. He has no influence over what is published here and never carried more influence than any other user even when he was active. Having driven away most editors at CP, TK has no more toys in his pram with which to amuse himself and needs to cause more mischief. Tell you what Terry, why don't you actually try writing some genuine educational articles for the children that you have professed to care so much about? And furthermore do it without such obvious copy/pastes that underpinned most of the other articles you "created". I presume you haven't forgotten the UCLA article when you lied to Andy and the sysops at CP that it had not been copied from Wikipedia. It was shown both here and independently by Philip J. Rayment, to be an utter falsehood so why don't you expunge that from your database with your new powers, as any other sysop can resurrect it whenever they wish if they want to know the truth?

That list is insulting to User:Nx. TK, I demand you rectify this at once! EddyP 15:08, 16 June 2009 (UTC)
