That bloody youtube video.[edit]

This one. Why is there a Masuimi Max video under related videos? That's quite wierd. That means he's basically two degrees of YouTube separation away from a hairy bare chested bloke playing with a violet wand on himself. Maybe Andy does have a point with the pr0n thing... Scarlet A.pngsshole 11:51, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Terry fails at Life, or rather Time[edit]

Amazing how time flies for Terry Koeckritz. First, give a user a 3 day block, for not sucking your dick, then a few hours later, delete user page of the now suddenly infinitely blocked said user. 3 days is a long time in Terry's world... PS Thanks to Jpratt for the illuminating "fails at life" way to describe the CP sysops. --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:03, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

This is a special hint. TK wants to signal to us that he will finally launch the last stage of his plan to destroy CP before Wednesday. *nods sagely* "Infinite means until this wiki is dead. So three days it is!" --Sid 15:09, 21 June 2009 (UTC)


So at Conservapedia they're all just sidestepping the issue of what Andy was doing googling the word "gay". Brilliant. This is easily the funniest thing to have happened over there in a long time. BOMBSHELL! THE GAYS ARE COMING FOR ME! Fucking idiot. SJ Debaser 14:38, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

BUT IT MUST TRUE!!! If I go to Google, it shows a picture of a liberal digging a grave for the little girl he's about to abuse and murder... oh no... wait... conservative hysteria passed... it's just a father's day picture and they're playing on the beach. Hey Andy! You forgot to mention that in your borken news. --PsyGremlinWhut? 15:05, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
One thing: he's bloody observant. I wouldn't have noticed it (the line) if he hadn't told us. Talk about looking for it. This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 15:11, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Nice one, Sid. This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 15:28, 21 June 2009 (UTC)


It's now three weeks since she edited. Looks like they've lost the one decent homeschool teacher they had. I know she's missed before but this is a bit of a long hiatus. This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 15:00, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm amazed she lasted as long as she did, without Terry blocking her on some trumped up charge. then again, given her lack of rights (edit only?) it's clear Andy didn't think much of her either.
Just an aside on Terry blocking on a whim - notice how he linked all the senior editors (Tim, Brian, Jinx, Jess, etc) to people here. It's probably his way of winding up Andy's paranoia - and undermining his authority - by insinuating, "look Andy, you slipped up, you let rats into Quagga Prime. Now if I were a bureaucrat, I could easily find you the right people to promote, because I'm a stalker security consultant." Oh, and Jallen isn't a bureaucrat btw. --PsyGremlinWhut? 15:17, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
She's not? *checks* Huh, you're right! How weird, I must've confused her with SharonS... --Sid 15:24, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Idiot Savant[edit]

I'm surprised Andy didn't simply overwrite the original article with his own, but I do love the Schlafly statistic (supplied by a peon) in the article. And not a citation in sight. --PsyGremlinWhut? 15:33, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Poe alert? The peon did get blocked in 2007. K61824CP≠Child Porn? 15:52, 21 June 2009 (UTC)


So, Andy has added "red tape" to his list of "conservative words" (see WIGO), giving him an unbalanced century chart count of 11/23/44/88. To keep everything geometrically kosher, he'll need to shoot for 12/24/48/96, which means he needs one 1600s word, one more 1700s word, four 1800s word, and 8 1900s word. Also, according to Andy's theory, the current century should have produced at least 16 new conservative words so far, and he only has four listed. Considering how much he's had to stretch thus far to find words that are "conservative", there are serious chuckles ahead.--WJThomas 13:03, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

(Or, he could just take the lazy way out and remove one of his 1700s words, but he still needs a bunch of 2000s words)--WJThomas 13:03, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Is "Conservapedia" already on the list? I assume stuff like wiki, web 2.0 and blog are "liberal", as they're things that are used to push the liberal agenda on the masses. Scarlet A.pngsshole 13:20, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
He's been lazy several times already: "it's amazing how removal of clear mistakes like this one restores the perfect geometric fit" PubliusTalk 18:12, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
WIGO'd 20:40, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I think the WIGO that just was added from the 15th was already done once, or at least discussed.--PitchBlackMind 21:15, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Sure was. People really shouldn't WIGO things that happened a week ago, unless they are part of a current one. So I done voted it down one pip. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:52, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Dying of the light[edit]

I don't know if you like Twilight or not. But let's see what Conservapedia thinks.

First: Twilight redirects to Twilight (book). Hope they will speak about the end of the day someday.

Even though some of the many characters are vampires, the book and series are about the importance of true love and waiting until marriage.

ORLY? Some of the many characters are vampires? Come on, every novel has many characters. But this novel has two main characters, and one of them is a vampire.

the importance of true love; well, I guess it's the author idea. I think this book should have a warning don't believe this book! love won't be as perfect as this is the real life.

waiting until mariage: hum, waiting for what? Can you be more explicit?

So, I think it's sooo predictable. But I wonder how they'll do when it will come to Breaking Dawn. Will they hinder the pedophilia controversy (Jacob and Renesmee...)? Barraki 20:48, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

They can't get past Breaking Wind...oh and GWB really read Albert Camus, yeah, right. Warren Terra 20:55, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I hate to tell you, Barraki, but I wrote that bit. Never read Twilight, never will, but I wrote it. PubliusTalk 00:33, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Outed Parody[edit]

I was sitting on this, cause it was one of my favorites, but it got fixed a few months ago.... Whoever slipped in this Moar Hitler congratulations, it lasted four months. That was my personal favorite obvious parody on CP. SirChuckBI have very poor judgement 21:15, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Classic. I think Hitler could last for a while just about anywhere on CP. I've always wanted someone to plaster it on the vegetarian page. --PitchBlackMind 21:25, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Hang on, so they basically didn't look at their gun article for four months. I find that more staggering than the Hitlerium. Scarlet A.pngsshole 22:00, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I know of a real doozy from 2008, and a few others from earlier this year. Really good parody is hard to write nowadays, since everything gets inspected very carefully. Contemporary vandalism / parody has a half-life of about 1 day, unless it's done very cleverly. A recent bit of parody was successfully slipped in, I think. Just a second; let me check; Yup, still there. Congratulations. Gauss 22:43, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I was going to say I recognized the style, but it's not the same guy. I thought perhaps this was him deciding he'd been too low-key up to now. I'd point you to some of his "contributions", but they're pretty subtle, and a couple have been there for over a year. I wouldn't want to end their run prematurely.Cyclical 23:05, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Armond: That's the essence of Social Conservatives. What they like (guns, liberty, Jesus) is less important than what they don't want you liking (gays, peace, science). --Kels 23:23, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Something like that, yeah. There are a number of articles that should be...mmm...important to the cause, but which contain obvious parody. I'm thinking of one article in particular (and I'm going to be purposely obtuse here in order not to expose it) that deserves special attention from conservatives, and which is indeed quite lengthy, but is substandard due to the work of a vandal/parodist. And the damage is obvious to anyone who reads the article past the first couple of paragraphs. And it's been that way for over two years. And in those two years, darn near every sysop has made changes of some sort without apparently detecting the larger issues, including multiple edits by every single member of the current power structure. And the article has received special attention due to persistent vandalism. And yet they've still managed to completely miss the problems with the article. --WJThomas 00:54, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Ok, WJThomas, I've intrigued now.... Please send me a very important email so I know which article you're talking about. SirChuckBI have very poor judgement 03:38, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm also interested in knowing of this parody of which you speak. The problem is being able to share the good stuff without giving the game away to possible moles. I was saddened to see the recent demise of Llap Doch which Ed had for some reason changed to Llap Goch I think someone had pointed out was something from the The Brand New Monty Python Bok. The main joke was that a llap doch was medieval archery field, and all adult male welshmen were required to visit the llap doch at least once a month.

Whats the story on Rjjensin?[edit]

His entry here reads like he wrote it. Is he really in intellectual? Did he really write those books? He certainly doesn't have the foggiest notion of a clue when it comes to fair use, but outside of that is he worth anything on a mental level? --Opcn 21:22, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, he has proven that he doesn't have the slightest clue about architectural styles. In my book, that's pretty weak for a professor of history. --Just passing by 21:54, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I suppose within the realm of CP, if RJJ is called "Dr. Jensen", it's good enough. ThiehTK = Terry Koeckritz 21:55, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
Another of CP's great failures, is all. A failed historian fits in nicely with the failed engineer/lawyer/teacher, failed car salesman, and failed swabbie. --Kels 23:20, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
He's really a Professor Emeritus of American History, and his motives for going along with CP are enigmatic, to say the least. Mostly he sits by himself, putting up articles he's already added to citizendium, but other times he's been a downright asshole, and clearly has no interest in so much as touching the content of Andy's "history" lectures or other sysops' treatment of users. Intuition tells me that he is a bit mercenary and opportunist; he must find his company at CP disgusting, but is more interested in the medium. He's occasionally argued with Andy, naturally having actual facts and scholarship on his side (Hitler and Evo., Gulf of Tonkin, Machiavelli, etc...), but to no avail. PubliusTalk 00:43, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

WIGO with same difflink[edit]

What's with the entries with the same difflinks like Ed Poor on Hell (wigo2104 and wigo2105); Andy on paradigm shift (wigo2118 and wigo2120)? should they be merged? K61824"6+18=24" 02:17, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I am unsure about the Ed Poor diffs, but I made the first mention of the Andy diff as part of a series of diffs demonstrating Andy's last-wordism, and the second to address specific content of the last diff. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 02:22, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Ummm, I just combined the two Andy WIGOs, preserving, as best I could, the two points being made. Both points are good, but I think it overlaps WIGOs too much to have two of them use the identical difflink. Then there's the matter of votes---they both have votes, but not yet very many, so it probably doesn't matter in the long run. The votes will pick up. Gauss 02:33, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Some people just get excited and wigo whatever their short attention span allows for. Tis' the ugly of the WIGO - idiots contribute as much as geniuses do. ħumanUser talk:Human 07:23, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Freudian Slip[edit]

Did anyone else notice this from Andy: "And, alas, the percentage of people who self-identify as conservative is constantly increasing." found here Does he understand what he really just said? SirChuckBI have very poor judgement 03:41, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

Already WIGO'd. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 03:44, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
I can see why he is upset. If he has a constant increase then the result would be that the number of conservatives grows linearly, not geometric. - π 04:17, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
And perhaps it will go beyond 100% at some point (geometric increases can converge to a certain value)? Guess it didn't start increasing till Andy says it is increasing was born. ThiehMonitoring virgin birth experiment 04:23, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Geometric series are only convergent if the common ratio is less than 1. Mr. Schlafly is using a common ratio of 2 in his Best New Conservative Words list. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:35, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
I thought the words and the percentage of people increases in different ratios. Oh well, guess Andy is more stupid than I thought. (Not to mention geometric sequence and z-transform are pretty much fundamentals if he is really has electrical engineering background) K61824Who is Terry Koeckritz anyways? 13:19, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

A short and thoroughly wrong calculation (Andy should be pleased): According to this, the English language has 1,000,000 words - and adds 14 words each day, i.e., 511,000 each century. The number of conservative words roughly perfectly doubles each century , and at the moment, we have ca. 200 conservative words in Andyland. And so, in the 37th century, there will be more conservative words in the English language than there are English words. Then total conservativeness will be reached, and the Lord may return.

Two Freudians in one short message: thanks for changing the link, and spotting the typo - I'm afraid, with this typo I lost all be credibility larronsicut fur in nocte 08:36, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
At least Andy is trying to make toward the goal (more conservative words in the English language than there are English words). If he has to make it before 2061 (when he hit 100 years old) the geometric pattern has to have the following factors:
  • words in the 16th century has to be more than 50
  • words increases in rate of at least 13 times per century (the first 2 rules can be in other combinations like 11 to start(current number), 19 times per century)
  • all words for the 21st century have to be discovered before 2061
Let's sit back and see him work his arse off. (also it goes all the way to the 54th century for the current rate of increases if the increase of english words is also geometric (51.1% each century?)) K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 14:00, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
This is a worthy project. Even under Andy's own inexplicable analysis he's doing 8x as much work coming up with 20th century "conservative" words - I've got all kinds of suggestions for 17th century words with which to multiply his efforts. You can search by year here - not sure this is a tremendously reliable resource, but it's a good starting point for diving into the OED at your library.

Bull fighting pictures on Mainpageleft[edit]

Is it just me or did the evolution article become so bullish that it got itself skewered? K61824Ask me for relationship advice 16:56, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

I like the creationist seagulls. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:09, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
I was sort of weirded out by that. Are those creationist carrion birds eating Atheism's corpse? There's gotta be a commandment against that. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 23:24, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
I don't think  K e n  D o l l  thinks too hard about his metaphors, or indeed anything at all. In any case, I think seagulls are a pretty good metaphor for creationists. They're vermin living on the trash of human society. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:28, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
I failed to actually read his caption: "Conservapedia is certainly in favor creation science birds of prey feasting on the carcass of evolution!" Creation science birds indeed. Who even refers to creationism as a science anyway. I thought even AIG was promoting intelligent design as independent of faith or biblical sources. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 23:32, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
I presume the pun in the first post was a misspelling of skua-ed? LQ 01:53, 21 June 2009 (UTC)
I was talking about the bull fighting pictures associated with the evolution article (first link) and Atheism article (2nd link). I would assume the Bull in the first one is the evolution article, which is dead in the later version. But oh well. K61824Who is Terry Koeckritz anyways? 02:25, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

seagulls are a pretty good metaphor for creationists - that reminds me, I must start on the ring species article I've got some stuff about... Totnesmartin 09:51, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

The best bird of prey Ken could come up with was the seagull?! Worst metaphor ever! He makes it sound as if creation science is just an annoying nuisance that survives on discarded scraps... Actually, on second thought, that kind of works. Great job Ken! Best metaphor ever! Kalliumtalk 01:52, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

How about a membership drive?[edit]

No not for us silly, for conservapedia. We all probably belong to other online communities, we could put out a shout out and get some attention. It would be fun to try and get more traffic. --Opcn 17:49, 21 June 2009 (UTC)

Doubt it. Most of that figure comes from massive range blocks, and within those ranges it's unlikely that each single IP would be assigned to a different individual. It's still a whole lotta blocking though.--

Looking at it again, are you sure that's a map of CP blocks and not Kim Jong Il's plan for the next 12 months?--ConservapediaRoolz 15:07, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
I am sure it is not "plan", because 1) Kim is old, perhaps retiring soon, 2) their missiles can't reach that far yet, and 3) plans to involve chooting at the hand that feed him (China) usually ends ugly. "Fantasy" perhaps is a better word. ThiehZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 18:26, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Too bad we don't know much many percent of the local address pool these respectively represent. It's not just that Australia has had 8 /16s dropped on it, it's that pretty much the whole of New South Wales is banzored. The address I burned when I signed up at CP last Saturday might easily have been the last conserva-capable IP in all of Sydney. Same with parts of New Zealand. Mountain Blue 05:16, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
I wrote a script for one of my abortive wiki projects that tells me this, apparently "AUSTRALIA has 82417983 IPs assigned to it." So, 8 /16 represents some 0.6% of the total address space in aus. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:09, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Do not despair[edit]

I know that in the TK-dominated CP, comedic events are fewer (as are users) and more repetitive. But do not despair; there are over 80 main page talk archives, so if you're ever bored, pick one. For example, I found a post from March '08 informing all that 'liberals' at CP was in the top page at google. And it was so. But, of course, the article has been changed since then, so when anyone searching for liberals comes across the CP link, the abstract is "A liberal (also leftist) is someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards;". Classic. EddyP 14:46, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I just looked at the cp:Liberals page for the first time in a couple of months, and Jeeeeeee-sus! It has got so petty and pathetic-sounding that it is just incredible. Fair enough if you're viewpoint is different, but this article reads like a hate speech. SJ Debaser 15:11, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Seriously, you want to see what CP used to be like, go back and read the first few Main Page Talk archives over there.  K e n  D o l l  hasn't changed, of course, what with ranting about "The Evolutionary Position" and trying to get JoshuaZ banned for posting a mildly critical statement on his WP userpage, but Andy was a lot more tolerant. This was when Human, and Sid, and Cracker, and others were still active and tolerated, lots of good and illuminating conversations. Sort of what I was hoping aSK would end up like, only with a somewhat less insane/crankish site owner. Pity. --Kels 15:26, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I really wish I'd found CP earlier back in it's heyday, it would've been a lot more fun to actually engage in debate and conversation rather than just troll like people do nowadays. But I didn't discover it until about September/October last year, and even after that I joined Liberapedia first in November. I only came here about 3 months ago.

How many blocked users?[edit]

We talk a lot about range blocks ande IP blocks and how very many there are, but there is seldom mention of how many user names are blocked. I'd really like to know how many active users there are on CP after all of the blocks are taken into account. --Opcn 16:36, 22 June 2009 (UTC)

I'd like to know if there is a strong correspondence between what we perceive to be "lightning rod" pages and the reality of whether there really is a higher likelihood of getting blocked if you edit pages like TalkObama, TalkMain, anything in the Debate space, etc. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:49, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
  1. cp:Special/Statistics has the current number of registered editors 30,060
  2. At the begin of this month, there were 15,904 out of 29,740 editors blocked - or 53.3% (see here)

All of these ceased to edit before DanH did so - and he is the former administrator with the longest period of inactivity. Of course, these editors are - most probably - personally known to Aschlafly and there is only little danger that they will turn bad. But instead of giving a valid, though biased reason, Aschlafly prefers to state something sounding objective larronsicut fur in nocte 06:15, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

This supposed inconsistency isn't a valid criticism. In all probability he emailed all the inactive admins and then demoted the ones he didn't hear back from, or something like that.

Schlafly stated in 2007: As I've repeatedly said, Conservapedia is a meritocracy.--Aschlafly 18:33, 23 April 2007 (EDT), and according to CP, a cp:meritocracy is a a system in which promotions are based on merit rather than friendship, seniority, or quotas. I have to suppose that this is true for a demotion (or the lack of it), too. But merits are gained in the past - or present, and can't be promises for the future, as any email from an administrator to Andy would be. larronsicut fur in nocte 15:56, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Andy fils the trojan horse[edit]

Firstly, if Andy is conservative then the trojan horse was liberal, lets look at the symbology₢ Troy with its high thick walls represented establishment, and Odysseus utilizing his intellect to defeat it represents liberals tearing holes in Andy's faulty ass logic. If I were a liberal I'd totally want to take credit for the horse (sorry I'm a libertarian). Irregardless of that I do love the fact that Andy thinks that the trojan horse was deciet from within (also known as infighting) rather than the more traditional deffinition, which is a gift with hidden drawbacks. — Unsigned, by: Opcn / talk / contribs

He is tarring any "subversion from within" as liberal. I suppose that means Operation Valkyrie was liberal deceit as well. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:13, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Why would you characterize all such people in that way? True, there are idiots out there who claim to be communist, and have no idea what that entails. Justice? I'm sorry, I didn't know that you were opposed to justice and liberty, civil rights for all people and the end of discrimination, be it Classism, Racism, Sexism, or Agism. But I pride myself on my moral values and want for justice. Maybe you don't know what Communism is, but I have a fairly good idea. And so what. If loving people, wanting to end all this evil in the world, and fighting against prejudices is so wrong, then I don't care. I still do it because it is what I believe is right. I gladly fight for communism, not because of oppressive imperialism, but because I believe in the better side of people. So fine, retain what you believe Communism is, I can't stop you. You can continue to be ignorant. In the immortal words of John Lennon, "Maybe I am a dreamer, but I'm not the only one". --Beishanlong grandis 19:41, 22 June 2009 (UTC)
Pardon me; I was unaware that any communist state had at all delivered justice or liberty, extended any sort of civil rights, or brought about the end of any of those sorts of discrimination. Anybody can jabber on ad nauseam about "justice," but practicing it is a slightly different matter. Reds are full of hot air on the topic, but that does not help them here outside of the World According to MarxTM, and when this is made quite clear, instead of owning up and admitting that they were wrong through and through, they just trumpet the party line all over again.

Before anyone associated with the CPUSA pulls the No True Scotsman to disassociate themselves from those inconvenient truths, they should remember that: (1) they are a Marxist-Leninist party whose platform bemoans the collapse of the Soviet Union and cheers, among other countries, North Korea; (2) since their party is run along democratic-centralist lines, every member of the party is expected to back the platform to the letter.

I put that no unworkable theory is "nice" at all, as such theories do nothing but cause great strife as people fruitlessly attempt to implement them. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 03:45, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

(UI)Just a little late to the discussion, but these theories are just that; theories. They are abstract concepts meant to apply to abstract ideals. When applied, pure communism works no better than pure capitalism. This is because unlike in theoretical exercizes, you have too many factors to account for and will be unable to predict all outcomes. The best system is a combination of systems, that utilizes that strengths of one while eliminating the weaknesses of others. Z3rotalk 16:12, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

Schlafly Statistics: Episode II:[edit]

"A New Hope" "The Phantom Encyclopedia"

Tl;dr: They're boned.

Fig. 1: All edits
Fig. 2: Welcome edits

Two weeks ago we discussed how many edits Conservapedia gets every month and how this number changes over time. Fig. 1 is a refined version of the chart we talked about back then. The height of each bar represents the number of edits made over the course of the corresponding month. The height of the red portion of each bar indicates the number of edits to actual articles, where the set of "actual articles" is the main namespace minus redirects, debates, essays, lectures, and homework pages. Note that both numbers have been in freefall for more than half a year. Also note that less than two out of three edits are made to actual articles; Andy remembers his 90/10 rule when he needs a hammering pretext but must have largely given up on it otherwise.

Fig. 3: All users
Fig. 4: Welcome users

Gauss suggested it might be interesting to know how many edits Conservapedia gets that Conservapedia actually wants. In Fig. 2, the green portion of each bar indicates the number of welcome edits, where a welcome edit is an edit that (a) does not get reverted right away and (b) is not made by a user who goes on to get the banhammer within one week of making this edit. The percentage of welcome edits is higher than I expected. I suspect part of the reason for this is that many unwelcome edits are edits that create new pages, along with which they subsequently disappear from recorded history. Remember how, in the SPastel incident, the team killers burned about fourty perfectly good encyclopedic articles because Karajerk felt vaguely threatened by the presence of a scientist.

Note, however, that the number of welcome edits is in freefall in direct proportion to the number of edits total. Andy's freak show doesn't just attract less and less incredulous disaster tourism; it attracts fewer and fewer bona fide contributions as well.

Gauss also suggested it might be interesting to know how many editors there are. In Figs. 3 and 4, the height of each bar indicates the number of users who made at least one edit over the course of the corresponding month. Red indicates the number of users who made at least one edit to an actual article; green indicates the number of users who made at least one edit that neither got reverted nor got them banned. Observe that none of these numbers decreases, all three of them are stable. Together with the precipitous drop in the number of welcome edits, a stable number of welcome editors suggests Conservapedia doesn't have an advertising problem; they have a retention problem. There are still enough people who learn of the existence of Conservapedia and decide to give it a try; there are just not enough crazies who can tolerate them for any length of time.

Edits by regulars
The current sysops and the three regulars you mentioned contribute between 20% (Jul 08) and 60% (May 09) of welcome edits. Their share has been rising more or less steadily since last July and is in excess of 50% for the fourth consecutive month now. This statistic seems to neither corroborate nor contradict my hypothesis from yesterday. Note that RJJensen is a sysop. Mountain Blue 22:29, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

More useless statistics more like. If you ask the average voter if they want smaller government, they say yes.

I think it is difficult to generalise about prostitution. When people condemn prostitution I think it is mostly concerning forced prostitution where women are doing it against their will, often as part of organised crime. Sex is such a powerful component of living that there is money to be made from it and therefore will probably be with us pretty much for ever. The problem is who is engaged in it and are they doing it voluntarily? Poor women may choose to be prostitutes because it is the only means of earning money and would forgo it if other paid work was available. Of course, you could say the same about a lot of jobs; do people aspire to be toilet cleaners for example? Many people do a job which they may dislike or find demeaning, it's just that in our society we have a taboo against purchased sex. Of course there are some jobs which people actually do enjoy (which others find repugnant), and there may be women who actually enjoy their job as a prostitute because of the satisfaction they give. The difficulty is when the relationship becomes abusive in some way. There are also women who actually choose prostitution over other jobs because they can actually earn a lot of money from it, however we tend to euphemise it by referring to them as call-girls. And like it or not there is often a degree of "prostitution" within marriage where a spouse may use sex as a bargaining chip in order to obtain some sort of advantage. It could even be argued that some women object to prostitution because it undermines their own bargaining position. I'm not condoning any of these viewpoints just trying to put an economic slant onto the question rather than the usual moral arguments. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 21:44, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh, good lord, please...the vast vast vast majority of women who work as prostitutes do so because they are (literally) forced to do so, or because they are so goddamn desperate that they don't have other options. Hiring a prostitute is, in effect, rape. (And the "she does it because she enjoys it" defense is the exact same rationalization that pedophiles and other abusers fall back on--"She wanted me to! She came on to me!")--WJThomas 23:25, 23 June 2009 (UTC)

The crackhead down the street who's selling it for 10 bucks a pop is in a much different situation than the $10,000 a night hooker for the high-rollers in Las Vegas. I'd agree that most are forced, but there's many exceptions to the rule across the globe.--PitchBlackMind 23:58, 23 June 2009 (UTC)
I'm talking about legalised prostitution. If the shit was legal, shit would be different. I'm sure we have some German members who can vouch for the laufhaus, or some dutch members who can vouch for the red light district? Yes, most of us live where prostitution is illegal (e.g. US, UK, NZ, Oz, etc) and I believe for many reasons there is a correlation with a lifestyle lending itself toward susceptibility to a strong pimp hand. It's borderline an association fallacy. If you make something illegal, some nefarious characters are sure to fill the niche. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 02:04, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Tamar wasn't actually a prostitute, she just dressed up like one to get her father-in-law to fuck her. Rahab was a legit prostitute (who according to the Talmud could make men ejaculate with the mere mention of her name). Ruth fucked her employer Boaz to redeem herself of her widowhood.

Saving Christianity from Libb-burr-ulls[edit]

Okay, Andy's latest blog postessay is How Conservatism is Essential to the Future of Christianity.

I note two points he makes:

  • "The decline of the Southern Baptist Convention". Excuse me? The entire past 20-30 years of SBC history has been a steady march to the (far far) right, spearheaded with pretty much a complete takeover of the denomination by fundamentalists and a purge of anyone who disagrees with them.
  • "Liberals use politics to exploit a literal interpretation of a phrase in the New Testament that God chooses the political leaders." You mean like the numerous Christian conservatives who argued that God supports the Republican Party, not just on moral issues like abortion, but even on things like taxation? Or even the ones that argued George Bush's election was divinely ordained, or that God actually intervened during the 2000 Florida recount?

MDB 14:35, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

  • The first point: I can't tell whether they are doing it on CP.
  • The Second point: They probably do. Please thank them for putting words in God's mouth.

"Gambling" originated in 1755, according to the dictionary. --AS
At first I thought he meant he thought the behaviour was invented in the mid-eighteenth century, but now I think he meant that scriveners didn't see fit to write about it, using that word, until then. I think he means to make a distinction between gambling and drawing straws or casting lots or something, using a concise modern vocabulary unavailable to the KJV translators. Does this have to do with reaching an audience of today's twelve-year-olds with his newly spun translation of scripture, or is there a more nefarious agenda here? I'm all confused. Sprocket J Cogswell 00:32, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

That is how it seemed at first, but I cannot believe he has such a limited understanding of history, and the relation between activity and vocabulary. I suspect that he wants to give the kids reading below 5th or 6th grade level (10 or 11 years old) something they can understand better than "casting lots." "Drawing straws" is too innocent-sounding. I think he wants to invoke the eevil monster Gamblor, to scare the kiddies in words they can understand. Sprocket J Cogswell 04:48, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Bushism WIGO[edit]

Okay, not that anyone here can understand what people at CP are thinking, but what was with the Bushism headline? What was the supposed Bushism? Or are they simply calling something they don't agree with a Bushism? The referenced article doesn't even mention Bush. *confused* Z3rotalk 21:25, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

The statement appears perfectly coherent to me, and I was able to follow it completely. I was looking for the confused word salad that punctuated most of Bush's ramblings over the years. My best guess is the complex sentence structure was too difficult for Rob to follow and so it "made no sense" to him. tmtoulouse 21:29, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Very simple, the "they" in "they say the government can't run anything" obviously is a reference to "insurers." Now, the President and apologists would be hard pressed to find evidence that "insurers" ever said "anything," for example General Motors or the Post Office. It appears here Obama has confused opposition critics and free market advocates with "insurers." Is he really that paranoid already? RobS 23:09, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Even if that were true, it ain't a Bushism, or malapropism, or anything of the sort. A Bushism is a humorous verbal gaffe, often bordering on incoherence or stupidity, characterized by the (mis)use of grammar and other linguistic errors (or something to that effect). A few examples:
  • "Too many good docs are getting out of the business. Too many OB-GYNs aren't able to practice their love with women all across this country."
  • "Make no mistake about it, I understand how tough it is, sir. I talk to families who die."
  • "The California crunch really is the result of not enough power-generating plants and then not enough power to power the power of generating plants."— Unsigned, by: WJThomas / talk / contribs

tmtoulouse, you make the case. The link you provide in fact applauds Obama, and criticizes the House version. Further, it does not say, the government "can't run anything", as Obama's Bushism goes. It cites the specific consequences of what may happen if indeed the gubmint, in this case the House version, runs a free health care program.

Wow, The link outlines criticism of the proposed plan, Obama is responding to criticism of his plan. The criticism in the link coincides with the criticism that Obama is responding to. Regardless of who is right or wrong it is accurate at a meta level of content as well as being completely accurate in its use of grammar, words, and basic coherence. Even if your criticism of the statement was true, it would still not be a Bushism. Bushisms have to do with structural and linguistic errors, with coherence, exactly as you posted. Your criticism is one of content, the structure and linguistic coherence are solid. Your continued use of Bushism is a definitive case of "malapropoism."

Incidentally, on a completely unrelated note, my lazy browsing of the web took me to Monstropedia, where by instinct I looked up "Succubus" (forwarned is forearmed, after all). I found a reference to a 1937 novel by Charles Williams called "Descent Into Hell", and the sponsored review opened with the following: In Charles Williams's novel Descent into Hell, Hell turns out to be nothing other than a refusal to see things as they really are. Arguably his finest novel, the "descent" in the title happens to an ordinary (if extraordinarily selfish) historian named Wentworth, whose daily choices to cheat on the truth slowly but surely lead him into a terrifying state of isolation and egotism.

California raving rightwing evangelist nutjob Dolph Dan Lungren has a proposal on the books:

Before the August recess, a resolution will be voted on by the House of Representatives that will require the Architect of the Capitol to engrave the words "In God We Trust" and the post-1954 Pledge of Allegiance onto the walls of the Capitol Visitor Center. References to religion and faith are already included in several of the permanent exhibits, and the words "In God We Trust" are even present in one such exhibit. But that's not enough for Rep. Dan Lungren (R-CA) who is pushing for a larger, bolder display. Let your Representative know that you oppose his efforts.

Dolph has already got 160 timewaster's votes in the bag (might be worth checking out those bozos are so we know who'd vote for such pork), so it looks like it'll pass, but at least let the God-botherers know how much you disapprove.

Forgive my physics ignorance, but doesn't a change in the rate of radioactive decay in any object require a change in the internal energy state of that object? And doesn't solar fusion require that the materials involved each have to have a fairly exacting internal energy state, so if that energy state did change over time solar fusion would have failed? Or is that even more bolloxy than AndyPandy's reasoning?-- 18:18, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

"Lexfundamen", if you happen to see this, DO NOT play burden of proof with a fundie, it is never productive and never ends. Anyways, technically, both parties are making a positive claim: One being that the rate is constant, another that the rate is variable.

I was just poking around trying to find support for the constancy of radiometric decay and this appears to be one of those arguments that Andy will win simply because all data on radiometric decay was derived observationally and he's perfectly comfortable arguing absolute truth from the absence of evidence to the contrary. If there's someone here good at physics, riddle me this - can you mathematically derive decay constants for radiometric elements from first principles? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 19:01, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Probably not without resorting to virtual particles, quantum notions, and relativistic concepts, which are unlikely to be well-accepted by the target audience. I like to think I have a firm intuitive (and quantitative) grasp of Newtonian mechanics, but that doesn't really help here, does it? Sprocket J Cogswell 19:22, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
The decay rate is a function of quantum mechanical processes, you can derive wave equations that accurately predict decay rates from Schroedigner's equation (I believe but don't hold me to the Schroedigner part, I will look it up). You can't deductively prove a physical phenomenon, of course, but the equations that predict that phenomenon accurately can be derived from basic principles of quantum mechanics. The thing is that this "question" was interesting around the turn of the last century, so any papers are going to be hard to dig up electronically. I could hope over to the library though if we decide we really want one. 19:25, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I found this specific YEC complaint addressed in an interesting way here - there's more ways to empirically prove the value of a constant than counting it down all by itself. As for the quantum answer, isn't this kind of thing going to be in coursebooks if it's possible at all? I'd be very interested in putting something up here that AddisonDM and Lexfundamen can use to provide the proof Andy's insisting on - watching his ensuing contortions FTW. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 19:38, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, probably, but like I said it was stuff that was derived, literally, a hundred years ago. The derivations I am not sure would make it into a modern text book, just the governing equations. I will go dig around in the stacks and see if I can pull up a paper that does an actual derivation. tmtoulouse 19:45, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
This article seems to address derived values and compare them to observed values for a variety of isotopes, but I'm a lawyer cretin so I need you to read it for me and tell me what it actually says.User:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 19:50, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
It is actually not a derivation of governing equations per say. It is a modeling approach, where they took a mathematical model of how they thing nuclei behave, and then modeled them inside a computer and "observed" the decay rates of the modeled nuclei and compared to observations of the actual decay rates. This is certainly an excellent approach, and all of this convergent evidence (empirical observations, model prediction comparison, governing equations from quantum mechanics) rely on properties that keep the decay rates constant. Again, this is how science is done, through multiple lines of converging evidence. All of which is different from the initial question of whether or not governing equations for decay rates can be derived from first principles, but all of which is important to show what an idiot Andy is. tmtoulouse 20:04, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

(undent for the following side note) In a previous life, I hung around briefly in a lab in Palo Alto where the ongoing academic quest was to measure the exponent in the inverse-square law of gravitational attraction, making sure it was two, no more, no less, to as fine a resolution as humanly achievable at the time. Lots of fancy expensive milling and grinding to make the apparatus, and detectors teetering on a razor edge of frozen silence, that kind of thing. Of course none of it would have proven that the number in question hadn't suddenly changed the Thursday before they started the definitive run. Sprocket J Cogswell 19:57, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm a huge lurker who's been coming here for a while (The Lenski debate was where I started). I love that the actual debate for this article is happening here. Its refreshing to see and read. In a way this is the most instructive I've ever seen Conservapedia. I've always taken radioactive halflife constancy as a given (you know, what with decades of empirical evidence to back it up) but to actually try and prove this (or that the sky is blue, or that 2 + 2 = 4) is an interesting exercise. Keep up the good work all.

It's moving slowly now so it must have been faster before? I love it how Andy inevitably makes testable empirical claims for his every soapbox topic, just conveniently ignoring a century+ of evidence that has already disproved it- with his only evidence being "it's obvious". Regarding the U-238, um, "discussion", it's great proof that he's trying to shoehorn everything into YEC: a true "Conservative" who rejects relativity in favor of Newton's clockwork universe should love the idea of constant rate of decay over some Librul isotope with no discipline that randomly decays and provides a bad example for the other young atoms.

So do you folks want me to slice up the mp3s and load up a set of pages we can transcribe so we can get to the truth? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:30, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Found it. Dean is talking about articles he posted on January 10th. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 04:39, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
76,000,000 page views - that would be January.... Mommy said: Every Saturday I have a forum called Eagle Forum Live - she didn't say that it is live! And the callers may be preselected... larronsicut fur in nocte 05:41, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, at least one got hung up on... to have live callers, you have to have a live show!!! PS, tried to fix image link. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:51, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
(EC) This sounds like pure comedy gold. I've downloaded the mp3s to my iPod later for later listening. I rather hoped the PDF newsletter might have contained transcripts but it's just a single sheet flier. If Dean and a homeskollar phoned in then your could pretty much bet that the whole thing is set up beforehand and Dean has probably got better things to do at the moment because of his wife.

mp3s downloaded, for later remixing. Totnesmartin 09:06, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

I'm about 5 minutes into the first file. It's pure gold. I'm currently editing it in garageband to see if I can make some sort of autotune remix of it. Nearly everything that they say is just setting up strawmen. -Lardashe
I'm now about 17:40 in, and my opinion of Andy has somehow managed to plummet. He's not just an ignorant guy who thinks he knows it all - he's got a sense of malice that makes him a dangerous person. Like most of the nutbars out there who claim that God/Jesus wants them to do things, he has reinterpreted the Bible to reinforce the way he already is. -Lardashe
Andy alludes to bias in the Bible a few times. It seems to make his mom uncomfortable. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 13:39, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
I always thought she was a little embarrased of him. Didn't she take down a link from her site to CP? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 13:53, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
I snap. Autotune is built into Garageband. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 17:36, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

I love it at the start when it is clearly identified that Andy is doing it over the phone. "I need to pay no respect to my mom by getting over to the secret broadcast location." Thieh"6+18=24" 18:52, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

To be fair, nobody does "in studio" interviews on talk radio these days. Well, it's rare, anyway. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:04, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Well it wouldn't hurt him to pop in and see his dear old mom once in a while. Even Terry Koeckritz does better by his mom than Andy. Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum disease 19:35, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
And then did his mom calls him and engineer? There is a licensing issue. I am contending that he does not have a P.E. license. Can someone look into it further? (It's illegal to be called an engineer in many states if you don't have a license). K61824[Talk needed] 21:08, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

"No name and address required." Yeah, you just have to shut off the thing in your brain called logic. This is such typical Schlafly. 13.33 "Learn what was wrong about what you learned in school." Argh. This is giving me a bloody tumour. SJ Debaser 13:23, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Inconvenient edit button[edit]

I starting to build a structure where we might actually take the trouble to transcribe the best parts at Conservapedia:Andy Schlafly on Eagle Forum Live. I have broken it up into 19 segments. The first two are Andy and Phyllis babbling about CP, and I think so is the third. The rest are all broken up by caller. "Joe" is sure to be an instant classic, of course (segment 14). All I have to do now is get the mp3s onto the server so I can flash them in and format the backbone of this thing. ħumanUser talk:Human 00:32, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Maybe relocate it to "best of", because I am trying to work on a complete transcript (if you already have it, maybe put it up for a side by side perhaps?)? It may take days to do this since I am not a professional at this though (No, I don't have Voice recognition stuff yet.) K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 00:45, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
K, relax and wait, it will be so much easier to do it section by section. Of course, if you've already transcribed stuff, that makes life easier. You can just paste it in... What do you mean by "relocate it to best of"? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:40, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I thought the time total is less than the whole audio so it is not the entire audio clip. Guess you took those ads out during the process.

No pants at Conservapedia[edit]

Because someone just nuked the article on them - see MikeR 01:51, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Not even an explanation? I'd think that if it was vandalism, they'd have said something about "liberal vandals". Or RobSmith is a parodist. Umlaut 01:55, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
You can see the deleted content at - nothing obvious I can see that warrants nuking though we do have some rubbish about democrats wearing pantsuits is some kind of feminist superiority message as opposed to nice republican women who wear skirts. MikeR 02:13, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
The part comparing Democrat women wearing pantsuits and Sarah Palin wearing "respectable skirts" is probably parody. It's a tough call though. --PitchBlackMind 02:29, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

There's been a couple of attempts to add "pants" to the Conservative Words list. Perhaps the deletion is in response to that.--WJThomas 09:45, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Men should wear pants. Women should wear dresses. Some women wear pants. Women in pants bad. Hence, pants bad. Bad, Bad, Bad. (Read aloud in voice of Gareth Keenan for best effect.) Jimaginator 12:54, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
I checked out out the pants essay for giggles and went to the category:Essays. I haven't laughed this hard in awhile. I can't tell if they are pardoy so I can't link to them, but some of them are comedy genius. Check em out when you need a chuckle Teabag 17:41, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
