Thanks for nothing. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 22:43, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Garageband is shit. I'd recommend Logic Pro v8, I've spent the last year using it and it's great. SJ Debaser 13:29, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
In fairness Superjosh/Russian Mafia, LP8 is five times the price of Garageband. And LP8 doesn't even come with the ability to print photo calendars for your Gran, an essential tool for any DJ or remixer. DogPMarmite Patrol 14:14, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I forgot about the calendar maker. Logic Pro's more advanced, but Garageband is easily sufficient for this job. Very well done, I loved the splicing along the lines of "Conservapedia's got pornography, it excites the students." SJ Debaser 15:34, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Pitch correction in GB appears to not allow you to "play" a voice as an instrument as with Logic vocal transformer or Auto Tune plugins. So I'll see about buying or borrowing Logic cuz it looks rad, but don't forget that GB is free with a Mac. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 15:49, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Yes, but then you have to own a mac. That's a fate worse than death. Next thing you know, it's five AM and you're standing out front of the Apple store with all the other douches, waiting to buy the latest iShite. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:48, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

A Bible? DogPMarmite Patrol 02:40, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Expertise in Palaeography, Christian studies (Dogmas not found in Bible/NT), Jewish studies (Dogmas not found in Bible/OT), Koine Greek(NT Language), Aramaic(NT Language), Hebrew(OT Language), History of civilization(Old Earth only), Physics/dating methods (which books in the bible are authentic and which aren't, unless you go by the Canon and it's simply a decree), ancient mythology (What did the devil put in to test our faith), recent History (4004 BCE to present, especially after 7 BCE), so there is no expert for the Bible.

L & G, try and keep non-CP-related stuff off this page. This page is for current events in Conservapedasylum. Even general stuff about CP should go elsewhere. Redchuck.gif Генгисmutating 13:45, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

House, Obama send condolences[edit]

Maybe it's just me, but Andy almost makes it sound like they're doing something dirty. --PsyGremlinWhut? 14:39, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

You know, when I read "House, Obama send condolences" my first thought was "Why are Hugh Laurie and Obama getting together on something?" Silly brain. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:37, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
To be fair, that went through my mind again. I'm pretty sure there is no fictional character Assfly would hate more than House. Scarlet A.pngd hominem 19:27, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

The Imaginary 'Textbook'[edit]

It's quite amazing that they can tell us that CP has apparently been cited by a 'textbook' and yet can't provide that oh so minor piece of information...which one? Jammy 22:30, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Well, it was a sunday-school textbook, so it might well have been something somebody at the church put together--Gather a bunch of stuff off the Internet, put it on a flash drive, take it down to Kinko's for printing and binding. Likely as not somebody who knows Andy, knows what he does, knows he teaches sunday school, knows he'd be reading the textbook. Maybe his wife. If it were a "real" textbook Andy would no doubt have mentioned the title in order to better impress us all; he knows that citing a homemade pamphlet is damning with faint praise ("Hey! My best friend Bob mentioned me on the sheet of paper he ran through the ditto machine!").--WJThomas 22:55, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Here's a thought, too: Andy sez that he was teaching about the Book of Daniel when he ran across something interesting about the French Revolution. What does the former have to do with the latter?--WJThomas 23:02, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
It was an insight, you liberal vandal! ħumanUser talk:Human 02:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Ken was jabbering about the French Revolution and a search engine starting with G some months ago. Ace McWickedi9 02:31, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Ken's Insanity[edit]

Conservapedia has a huge package of knowledge that out-muscles atheist views! A leading creationist in Afghanistan is currently spreading the word of Conservapedia's evolution article to the masses!! Too much Hassel for you atheists?

Why does tehassfly allow Ken to edit the main page? I mean seriously, have a look at it in its current state. The (far) right bar is a relatively neat section of news and appropriately sized images, and then you scroll down the left to see a variety of random images with word soup underneath them. Who, in their right mind, would visit CP's homepage for the first time and think it was a serious site? Crundy 13:50, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

They really need to archive their news items. I scrolled down the page and I think the output alone would put enough people off thinking it a real site. Just look at the picture of Hitler and Darwin spliced together. You'd have to be retarded to think that a real picture. SJ Debaser 13:55, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
You're asking the wrong question. The Arsefly has never taken a lead role in the site, he isn't interested in the day to day running of it, it's administration or the minutiae of how it ought to be organised. He'll actively ignore anyone who endeavours to get him to make a decision. All that stuff has been delegated in perpetuity to the other "senior admins", which in practice these days means to TK. They've lost almost anyone who knew anything about making templates and other shiny navigation aids, so CP is never going to get any better than it is now. The correct question is, why doesn't TK beat on kendoll the way he does everyone else? The only reason I can think of is that kendoll does almost as good a job at destroying CP as TK does. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:57, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Almost? He manages to do it better! The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 15:43, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Again, I express regret at not finding Conservapedia a year or two ago when it was all-go with debate and slightly less banhammering and moar hilarious Andy-related antics. SJ Debaser 14:05, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Jeeves: Personally I'd muster a guess that TK hates  K e n  D o l l  as much as anyone, and every time he sees one of his monumental fail additions to the homepage he gets a bit angry (and goes off and starts an argument with a rookie contributor) but never says anything. I can only think that kennyken is one of tehassfly's better loved bitches and even TK isn't stupid enough to block him knowing that andeh would just overturn it. It must make TK's blood boil every time  K e n  D o l l  makes an edit. It's quite a lovely thought really. Crundy 15:23, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

As was revealed when they opened the SDG I think they all find Ken irritating and think he's a bit of a tit, but Andy has a sneaking respect for his inexplicable ability to achieve good Google rankings with his articles. StarFish 15:28, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

He's fiddeling with the main page again. Always promissing something coming soon but every time - every time! - it's a bitter dissapointment. I wish he would point to something that's actually happened rather than empty promises that never amount to anything. He always gets my hopes up for something really funny then - nothing. And yes, I love the pictures on main page. Sadly Ken's pictures are about the only really funny thing left on CP. More Ken. Please more. Can we have the Hitler/Darwin/Parrot 'we love eveolutionary racism' picture back please? Please?? StarFish 15:36, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Wow, he got rid of the bullfighting, creationist seagulls and the windmill. Now it only looks like a flange of five or six drunken baboons were let loose on the main page, rather than an even dozen. For your next trick, Kendoll, you can actually archive the news. You know, we have bots to do these sorts of things. It's a shame all your cohorts are morons. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 15:50, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
I don't think TK or any of them "hate" Ken, it's more like the Oh No! reaction of the centurion in Life of Brian when Biggus Dickus decides to read out the list of prisoners. Redchuck.gif Генгисmarauding 17:31, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Wait, did I just influence a change on the homepage to make Conservapedia a better place? I must be punished. Please excuse me whilst I whip my back with a cat-o-nine tails. Also, how come TK and  K e n  D o l l  don't get banned for looking here when everyone else does? Crundy 21:31, 25 June 2009 (UTC)
Terry Koeckritz,  K e n  D o l l , JPatti, Rob, Addison...Jinxy Baby?hi?...lots of them are avid readers. — Unsigned, by: Neveruse513 / talk / contribs 15:59, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

I would like to say how disappointed I am in the new, disimproved Main Page at CP. It could take months before we have it as good as it has recently been. Shame on you Crundy. DogPMarmite Patrol 22:58, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

Dear god, they've all gone. Maybe I should post something about there being not nearly enough hot chicks sucking my dick... Crundy 13:08, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
Uhh, is this the conversation about the Google crap? Cause I checked mine, but I couldn't find it on the first 10 pages. Dx Fuzzy =^_^= 18:11, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
No no, I mentioned how shit the front page looks because of  K e n  D o l l 's weird random images with messages about Google ranking / CP evalgalists, and so he deleted them all, thus making the site look more professional and less insane. I'm thoroughly ashamed with myself. CrundyTalk nerdy to me 20:30, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

TerryH, just another "Liar and vandal"[edit]

According to JPratt anyway, who deletes the articles "Template talk:Nb Atlas", "Azariah III" and "Hoshea (high priest)",using "Vandalism / lies" as his reason. All very well and fine, until you look at the wanted articles and realise these were well linked articles and b) he's been crapping all over TerryH's work at listing everybody in the Bible. I guess the parodist's mask is starting to slip a little, or he really is a semi-literate cunt, who doesn't know what he's doing. --PsyGremlinWhut? 10:44, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

It may seem unbelievable but all the evidence I have perused, including Twitter tweets and other stuff, has pointed overwhelmingly to the latter conclusion. Andy must be able to enforce action at a distance and mysteriously draws these societal misfits to him. In the old days they would have been tolerated as village idiots but now they think they're intelligent people and deserve to be listened to and respected. Nowadays it may not be politically correct to mock the afflicted but one can't help sniggering at them. (BTW Arthur Figgis=Ed Poor). Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 11:57, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
You take back that slur against the good name of Arthur Figgis now, or i shall have to ask you to step outside. Actually, I've always thought of them more as Upper Class Twits, (although slack-jawed, rather than chinless), saying thing unintelligibly. Like Andy: "Mummy is a right wing harlot and uses me as a waste paper bin." Terry: "I know Ed Meese and Daddy won the Kentucky Derby." --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:38, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Did we forget about Hanlon's razor? Never attribute to malice if it can be sufficiently explained by stupidity. Nobody at CP is attempting to do bad things, it just the things that occurs naturally when you put a bunch of stupid people together. ThiehInsomnia? Masturbate till you pass out 13:42, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
No, but we also remember Bush's Collorary (sp?): "Any sufficiently advanced stupidity is indistinguishable from malice." --Gulik 18:36, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Mainpage right leech[edit]

So Ken now has to keep his current events news items at the top of the page. After posting this item about "Obamageddon" he reposts it again one week later. And both are still on the main page. Redchuck.gif ГенгисGum disease 15:44, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

I also liked Ken's shoutout to Trent as he increased his picture size by 1 pixel. Twice. The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 16:09, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I also saw that. Either Ken's either so ignorant about wiki-formatting that he thinks everyone will see the results of his puffery in exactly the same detail, or he does it deliberately to be seen in the RC list. I fear that the latter is the case. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? 16:25, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
I, for one, would be pleased to see Kenny given complete and sole control over CP's front page.--WJThomas 16:32, 27 June 2009 (UTC)
Nothing Ken does pleases me. He very obviously needs psychiatric care and I hope he gets it. I fear the man will simply disappear some day and nobody but us will even acknowledge he's gone. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:48, 27 June 2009 (UTC)

Trent, given Ken's erratic behavior, marathon editing sessions, and general incoherence, I would assume nothing. I thought Ken crossed the line yesterday and would have feared for my safety. Internet name-calling and shenanigans are one thing. Talking about stalking (while actually doing it) and referring to trained killers is quite another. I would have called the police if I knew that Ken DeMeyer is his real name and he actually lives in Buffalo. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 14:29, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

A helping hand for TK[edit]

Seeing as you're graduating to deleting pages at a whim, as well as blocking every editor in sight. Judge Dredd pop culture? I would have though he was the most conservative film icon you could get 9he's pro death penalty, anyway), since St Ronnie (or are you just jealous you don't look as nice in all that black leather?). Anyway, if you're going to remove all the pop culture from CP, then here's a list to start with:

  • Star Trek (don't forget all of Ed's live-blogged episodes)
  • Category: Movies
  • Category:Harry Potter Movies
  • Category:Science Fiction Movies
  • Category:Animated Movies (especially those nasty Ghibli ones Uncle Ed shows to the kids he's grooming teaching.

Lead on, McDuff.

Oh and the next time you try and instigate an off-line e-mail conversation with somebody who could be a minor, I am going to start investigating how to lay a COPPA complaint against Andy and CP. Not you, but Andy as the site owner. --PsyGremlinWhut? 15:38, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

It's too bad Ed didn't create a page about Pom Poko. I'd like to hear his thoughts about the adorable raccoons use their giant nutsacks to knock people unconscious. --GTac 18:25, 28 June 2009 (UTC)
Traditionally, giant testicals have been a comic symbol of impotence. Probably hit a bit too close to home for "Call me Uncle" Ed. --Kels 18:46, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

Jackson[edit]

So TK deleted the Jackson talk page. Anyone know what he was trying to hide? SirChuckBEl...ipses are Cool... 19:50, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

There was an interesting little nugget he posted that I think he did in error which maybe Andy wouldn't have been to happy with. OncomingStorm 20:16, 28 June 2009 (UTC)

I can think of a blockbusters style game for Conservapedia blocking. You start with a set of hexes filled with random letters like regular blockbusters, one player plays top to bottom and another left to right. Each player takes it in turns to select an unoccupied letter from the board and an unblocked user whose name starts with that letter. If the user is blocked within 24 hours, you get to claim that hex. The winner is the person who creates an unbroken line of hexes between their two sides. Players aren't allowed to create socks for the purposes of game play, or select their own socks. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:28, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Ken wasn't kidding[edit]

I suspect those of you who aren't Canadians have heard nothing about this, due to your liberal mainstream media, but the Canadian Internet have been completely overrun by creationism in an operation called Operation Mincing Pocket. Remember "the internet is a series of tubes"? From Alaska's standpoint, this is literally true, as the Canadian Internet is a system of hydraulic tubes filled with maple syrup and poutine. We are on the defensive, the situation is grim and grows grimmer by the minute, as it turns out our Science Minister was a creationist plant, a pawn of chess master Ruy Lopez. Our stalwart lumberjacks and mounties are valiantly attempting to repair the holes in the internet trunk (a pipeline running through British Columbia from Alaska to Washington), gouged by bulls manipulated by creationist matadors. Please send help! We've run out of supplies and are now using spam to fill the leaks, and it's only a matter of time until the crusading creationists reach the Central Pumping Nexus, codenamed the "Evolutionary Paradigm."

Gentlemen at an atheist website,

Perhaps you thought that was a masterful rebuttal. However, your responses are slightly ridiculous. When it comes to ShockofGod and violence, you censor that that we are crushing evolution on the internet like a tin can. In fact, by upon activation of Operation Trickle Down, it is likely Obesity will have lost all vestiges of credibility. :) :) :)

Liberals are the conspiracy theories![edit]

Anyone remember how Andy likes to go on about how liberals are always believing in conspiracy theories? Well, early Sunday morning I was woken by a knock-knock at my front door. I dragged myself up from my hangover and mumbled what bad and stupid idea I thought it was to think about getting up. But I answered the door and found my half brother on the doorstep. This was unusual because I thought he was in Brazil. So I let him in and we had a few pre-lunch beers. During our conversation he started spouting anti-Obama conspiracy theories. I listened politely. After he left I watched a movie at his suggestion. It was called The Obama Deception and within minutes I could see where it was going. Typical New World Order/Illuminati brain fodder. The movie went on about a shadowy junta called The Bildeberg Group. After doing a little research I discovered this -
"According to the investigative journalist Chip Berlet, the origins of Bilderberger conspiracy theories can be traced to activist Phyllis Schlafly. Schlafly suggested a conspiracy theory in which the Republican Party was secretly controlled by elitist intellectuals dominated by members of the Bilderberger group, whose policies would pave the way for global communist conquest."
Heh, liberal conspiracy theories indeed. Ace McWickedi9 00:37, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Your half-brother sounds like a crazy sort of person; who else can find time for American conspiracy theories while globetrotting from Brazil to New Zealand? Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 00:43, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Well, I assumed he still in Brazil but I hadn't heard from him in a few months so he could have been anywhere. I was most surprised to find him on my doorstep as he doesn't live in my city. Anyway, as soon as I realized its was NWO stuff I knew not to give it creedence. Then when I found Mama Schlafly's name attached I knew what to file it under. Bullshit. Ace McWickedi9 00:48, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Syme had vanished. A morning came, and he was missing from work: a few thoughtless people commented on his absence. On the next day nobody mentioned him. On the third day Winston went into the vestibule of the Records Department to look at the notice-board. One of the notices carried a printed list of the members of the Chess Committee, of whom Syme had been one. It looked almost exactly as it had looked before -- nothing had been crossed out -- but it was one name shorter. It was enough. Syme had ceased to exist: he had never existed.

Well you can't expect a worn out old dog to learn new tricks. He does actually reference that article but in a deceitful manner and not for that copied line which of course should have quotes.

As far as cut&pastes from WP go, I don't remember Wikipedia being particularly bothered about "plagiarism" of its pages, although simple courtesy, intellectual honesty, and perhaps even CP's own Second Commandment call for acknowledgement of sources. There is, however, this to throw documentation into. Sprocket J Cogswell 01:45, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
I was actually referring to the possibility of using Wikipedia to show the exact nature of plagarism on Conservapedia, something prevented by rules against original research (and blatant pettiness, I suppose). Pro-Conservapedia people (like a certain Mr. Poor) might actually notice it there, whereas RW is mostly read by those who wish to troll it (such as TK). 71.193.206.116 03:06, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Too soon the "save page," too late the understanding on my part. Mea culpa, just this once, of course. I wouldn't call it pettiness, if your aims are pure, which I'm sure they are. Even if not, it would contain a minor portion of justifiable pettiness for the greater good. Too bad the venue doesn't work that way. You will find, if you inquire further, that Wikipedia also has the policy that it is not a soapbox. Sprocket J Cogswell 03:50, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
On the other hand, cites and verifiability are a very good thing on Wikipedia.

Bring back short blocks[edit]

IPs aside, you now have to go a long way back through the block log to find a block of less than five years. The only exceptions, weirdly, are 'recreate your account with a better name' blocks from JPatt, which tend to be only 3 months for some reason.

They should bring back the shorter blocks.-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 13:04, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Like that's going to happen with TK around? Actually, the last person he gave a short block to (or was it Ed?) was BRichten, but then TK sneakily blocked his IP for all eternity, in a typically TK deceitful manner. I miss "Violated 90/10 rule against talk, talk, talk", "Entering into disputes not involving editor (MYOB)", "Negative personal comments", and "User removed from the site after engaging in harassment of site's members"... all of which should imply that TightKnickers should have been booted off ages ago, if Andy and his goons weren't hypocritical idiots, of course, or if TK wasn't blackmailing Andy to allow him back on the site (just a thought). --PsyGremlinWhut? 13:18, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Pfffff, right. "5 years" is just a nicer way of saying "infinite". Temporary blocks (in the 3-12 month range) have miraculously turned into infinite ones (before the temporary one expired) the moment the user announced that he would resume editing once the block expired. They have absolutely no intention to see if someone will come back and play by the rules. Once a bad guy (and you become a bad guy by questioning a sysop's infinite wisdom), always a bad guy. And bad guys don't have the privilege of editing CP.
Usually, block lengths (at least when TK is involved - Ed, Jpatt and the others don't really think this far ahead; or they just leave the adjusting to TK) are basically chosen by attention span: "Estimated length until editor gives up and forgets about CP + 1 week". You just joined most/all of the regular RW people - he thinks that if he gave you a five year block, you would actually wait that long. --Sid 21:31, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

Liberals controlling elections[edit]

So, according to Andy and Slate, when large corporations donate lots of money to candidates, conservatives win, and when they don't, liberals win. I'm not sure which of these is more democratic. Hmmm.... Z3rotalk 17:59, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

An election is generally recognized as democratic if no one is induced to vote against their conscience and people's votes are recorded in an accurate manner. Beyond that, any claims of elections being undemocratic are usually just whining because one's own side did not win. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 18:09, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Two points (a) I was using the word democratic in the more traditional sense of "representing the will of the people" and (b) I think extra money swaying votes would violate your first point. Z3rotalk 19:01, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Bribing or compelling people to vote a certain way violates the first point, but putting forth expensive propaganda does not. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 19:07, 30 June 2009 (UTC)
Hrm. When they outcome of an election hinges on who has more money, I don't think you can really call that democracy. The principle of one person, one vote wouldn't seem to apply there. In fact you can essentially "buy" votes by buying advertising, so it's more like a shareholder's vote than a democratic vote. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. I don't think I'd mind living in a country where one could buy voting shares. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:31, 30 June 2009 (UTC)

RobS Bushism Redux[edit]

Wow, being made a fool the last time wasn't enough for ya, eh Rob? The quote you claim isn't even in the article you cite, and you are mangling the paraphrase in the article.

Yah, this makes sense:
  • 7 percent of all the energy consumed in America is used to light our homes (directly quoting the president).
  • "substantial savings between 2012 and 2042, saving consumers up to $4 billion annually, conserving enough energy to power every U.S. home for 10 months..."
(and we are not even getting into the 166 million cars or 14 power plant assdertions)

Thank you all for the warm welcome. To respond to ListenerX/sig0:

1) All light bulbs take up the 7%; (2) How is 10 months' savings over 30 years implausible?

Therein lies a bushism, either on Obama's part, or perhaps Liz Soldati of AP. Let's review the facts. Soldati directly quotes Obama, "7 percent of all the energy consumed in America is used to light our homes," then summarizes more statements attributed to the president, "saving consumers up to $4 billion annually, conserving enough energy to power every U.S. home for 10 months..."

This isn't a bushism, you know, where you scratch you're head and say "What the hell is he talking about?" RobS 17:49, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Well, I am scratching my head and saying "what the hell is he talking about?" but not in regards to Obama. --PitchBlackMind 17:53, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Er, Rob. The quote is "7 percent of all the energy consumed in America is used to light our homes and businesses" (My emphasis). Obama is saying that lighting, all lighting, not just the light in your den but the McDonalds arches, the office lights left on at night, the runway lights, the terminal building lights. All of it. Every last light bulb accounts for around 7% of the energy needs of America. That doesn't sound like an unreasonable figure to me. What else do you guys use energy for? Heat. Transport. Manufacturing. Is the idea that that accounts for a "mere" 93% of your energy usage such a massive underestimate? Now if he was just talking about domestic usage then 7% would have been silly. But he wasn't. You only made it look like he was by removing the majority of lighting usage from his estimate of lighting.
Right 2012 to 2042 is 360 months. At the current rate lighting will use energy over that time equivalent to 7% x 360 = 25 months and one week of total energy consumption. Obama is saying that under his new standards it will use 15 months and 6 days. That's a reduction of 40%.
Now, as energy efficient lightbulbs (you know the things used for lighting) use 75% less energy than standard lightbulbs (the things mostly being used now) this 40% saving would be achieved by swapping just over half of all lightbulbs for energy efficient ones. What number is in doubt? Is 75% saving a massive overestimate? Is having half of all lightbulbs as energy efficient lightbulbs wildly optimistic?
There are around 300 million people in America. At a guess of 3 per household on average that's 100 million households. Obama's $4 billion saving amounts to 40 bucks per household per year. If that's a 40% saving that implies that the average household spends $100 bucks per annum on energy for lighting. Sounds pretty cheap to me. Toffeeman 20:10, 1 July 2009 (UTC)
Good analysis, and you've touched on all the major points. The 7%, for example "energy," refers not just to electricity. So the article evidently intends to say 10 months savings over 360 months. Let's play connect the dots now; that presumably does not take into consideration the recent CBO report on the cap and trade tax increase scheme which adds $175 per year ($5250) over 360 months. Or the Heritage Foundations claim the real impact of cap and trade on household energy costs is $2900 per annum (or $87,000 over 360 months).
10 months savings over 30 years. Wow. On is reminded of Reagan's across the board tax cut, initially it was $8 per week for people making union scale wages. That was paltry enough for them to spend sums of money even greater in the mid-term elections to complain about it. RobS 22:09, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

  • insist that we're sliding into the horrors of socialism?
  • claim that they're massively persecuted because of their faith?
  • absolutely loathe the current president?

One has to remember that Schlafly is the site owner and has developer status so he knows exactly what is going on. I don'think he realised what was going on at first but the SDG archives do record him mentioning an unusually large number of page counts from one area. He has been quite happy to accept the bumped pageviews knowing full well that they are bogus because it enhances the status of CP - in his Eagle Forum interview he boasts about having over 76m page views. However, he doesn't like to have joke pages hanging around the top 20 because it looks too contrived. High page-view count articles have been frequently deleted and recreated before and some of the fringe homosex articles were downgraded. What he has done though is command his sysops not to delete & recreate any of the so called "flagship" articles as he is quite happy to have 4.7m views for Atheism and 3.3m for Homosexuality, so that he can brag about these having high counts despite knowing full well that they are bogus views. Mentioning 1 million views for Goat or Law Terms D would only make him look foolish. Although the top 9/10 homosex-related articles attracted much mirth in the blogosphere and some of the mainstream media it actually generated a lot of genuine traffic for CP, even if it was only just people who couldn't believe the insanity of the place and needed to see for themselves. I think he was genuinely disappointed when he lost 10 million views with the MediaWiki upgrade. However, as much as likes to blog about liberal deceit his own rejoicing in the pageview count is deceitful and he jolly well knows it.

I had a problem the other day when browsing via a 3G connection, I presume a proxy vodafone was running was stripping the question mark from the end of the URL, even though it was URL encoded. I guess this comes from a coding error regarding the URL format http://foo.com/? is a valid URL that is equivalent to http://foo.com/, while http://foo.com/%3F is also a valid URL, but is not equivalent to the other two. Interestingly, WIGO CP already has a redirect minus the end question mark, so I don't know if someone else encountered the same problem. Anyway, check the name of the page you're being served has a question mark on the end or not. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:03, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Lenski[edit]

I find it so funny how Andy's reminded us all of him behaving like a braindead twat by writing about Lenski on the front page. He really is a deluded moron if he thinks the general reception to what he did last year was positive. But obviously, there's no mention of RationalWiki on Conservapedia to refute his bullshit and lies. SJ Debaser 16:56, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

You should not lie about being a glove-maker, you rotten librul.--TimS 18:04, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

I also find it funny that Andy would bring this up considering that the only thing his article points out is a possible flawed test statistic, which changes nothing about the bacteria evolving. Perhaps if he were to question the quality controls for possible contamination then he might have a case, but a test statistic (not even a critical test either)... that is like pointing out a speck of dust on a painting.--TimS 18:11, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

The "flawed test statistic" isn't flawed. The article he points to is basically a criticism of Lenski based on the results of a statistical test that was not used because it was not an appropriate test (and hence the results of the unused test are irrelevant). When SJohnson first put that article up, a fair number of people with statistical experience tried to correct him, and he and Andy predictably just reverted all of the attempts. What is more, the article misses a huge chunk of the Lenski paper that would render the conclusion he draws from his flawed statistical complaint ridiculous even if he were correct. As to the quality control issue, Andy did claim that all the instances of Cit+ re-evolution during the contingency experiments in the paper were due to contamination. However, to make the claim, Andy had to ignore the ways that Lenski checked to make sure there was no contamination, and he had to maintain ignorance of basic microbiological technique that is taught to students during the first week of any micro lab course. So, Conservapedia is an all around fail on the Lenski issue. Kaalis 20:11, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
And you call me a liberal. Tcha!

A message for TK.....[edit]

You know I have never really made a statement about TK, publicly anyway, but I think I might now. TK, if you are reading this then I want you to know....in fact, I am going to tell you something you already know. This isn't what I think of you, this is what we all, including yourself, know about you. You're a lying, scheming, bigoted, unintelligent scumbag who obviously has failed so pitifully in real life, so appallingly, that your only option to make yourself feel important is to take over a little known website by manipulating its owner (which is the owners own fault I might add) so that you may spread your miserable existence, your utter inability to cope in the real world, to others. By throwing your inordinate weight around you get your jollies but you can't hide what you really are. Even with all your over-sighting it is painfully obvious to all what you really are. A nothing, a nobody, a zero, a loser. The fact that you spend all day being a petty asshole to all and sundry just goes to prove that you have NOTHING else in your life. I would pity you if you were not such a mean spirited bastard. All you have to look forward to is to get bureaucrated on CP. And that is a sad thing indeed. What is even sadder is that you know I am telling the truth but you'll deny it to your own face rather than face the failure that you have become. Ace McWickedi9 21:33, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

I do not condone any sort of wandalism / page bumping. That said, one should recall Andy's consternation when the last wiki upgrade was done. The page count is stored individually for each page, and for the site. Different counters - but they get updated at the same time. When a page is deleted, it doesn't reduce the site counter by that much. However, when the wiki software is updated, the site counter is set to the sum of the page counters. Andy was a bit disappointed to see the page count for the site drop (I think he called it a liberal counting scheme or something like that, though by all accounts, it is likely a more conservative one). If one was to bump the site count with a page that would be deleted for having too high a page count and Andy trumpets the 10M number, when the software is upgraded and it drops below 10M (anyone want to do the actual count? I know a number of high volume pages have been deleted) we can once again enjoy his disappointment at dropping below another imaginary number. --Shagie 16:37, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Speaking of which, should those of us who might or might not be operating clickbots spread out the traffic among a number of pages or aim en masse for a single page (such as Law Terms D, per above discussion)? In the interest of traffic maximization in the face of burning, I think we should spread it out, but inflating a single embarrassing page of our choosing has a certain appeal. Also, is there a page (or pages) that contribute to view count but minimize server load? The number of views we might or might not be generating is around 4/sec, and we do not want to bring the site down or degrade it significantly. Fedhaji 17:28, 19 June 2009 (UTC)
In the interest of reducing bandwidth consumption on both ends, disabling image loading is an excellent route (especially if you're using Firefox & ReloadEvery, for example), or not accessing monstrous pages like Evolution or Alger Hiss. PubliusTalk 17:35, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Law terms D is a great target largely because there is so little on the page, but I think perhaps the whole law terms list might be a good idea. Just now D with out pictures took 2 seconds to load, I, C, and K all load in under half a second.

Bot back up[edit]

Bot was not tolerant of occasional HTTP errors and went down. Now it is back. Fedhaji 17:15, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Minor issue[edit]

I'll preface this by whining about how I'd don't approve of this sort of thing, especially using the wiki to discuss it. Which isn't to say that I don't find the goal funny. With those delightfully contradictory statements out of the way, aren't DoS attacks illegal? Not that this is one, and people are even actively trying to make sure they don't break the CP server (well, someone mentioned it, at least), but the activities might look like a DoS thing, which might have repercussions. I'm probably wrong, of course. I do acknowledge that this isn't "vandalism", or "trying to mess up a website", by the way. The "plan" is to actually give the site owner some more of what he likes to boast about, as far as I can tell. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:49, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, I mentioned that earlier. It's an awful lot of trouble to make Andy smile. --Kels 20:04, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

I was curious about the legality as well. I don't think they're illegal in the US, but they are in Sweden and the UK. In any event, your ISP can get rid of you for doing it. Are there guidelines for what's appropriate for number of requests per second? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 20:26, 19 June 2009 (UTC)

Andy is making threatening noises[edit]

This may just be a coincidence, but a half hour ago Andy created this, talking about the illegality of bots. He seems to be bothered by our 4th of July celebration. Now we've been through this before—it's in the archives somewhere—but CP is not a "protected computer" in the sense of Federal law. Also, there is no "intent to defraud", and there is no "obtain[ing] anything of value", and the value, if there were any, is not "more than $ 5,000", and that there is no intent to "obtain or alter information in the computer that the accesser is not entitled so to obtain or alter". But other than that, Andy is, as usual, right on target. Gauss 01:46, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Andy read your own rules:
The operation of unauthorized wiki-bots is prohibited*. *Search engine and read only bots are exempt from this Commandment. To get authorization please post a note on User_talk:Aschlafly, stating what the bot will do, what username it will be under, and whether you have a working prototype. Bot owners are responsible for their bots' actions.
They are read only bots, but seriously if you are going to do this you can't interfere with the normal, smooth operation of the site. So keep the clicks down to a pace where you can't be reasonably accused of a DoS attack. - π 02:06, 20 June 2009 (UTC)
Also it says "exceeded authorized access", requesting a page does not exceeded authorized access, as any one can do that. - π 02:09, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

It's not a coincidence, TK told him the ebil librul vandal site was gonna run scripts to muck up his site. Who knows how much "truth" was involved in what TK told Andy, since We all (us and TK) know Andy doesn't read here, but presumably, Andy and others have been seeing the 503's too, and are konfused. TK explained. This reads like an episode of Schlafly Doo. But it's what is really happening. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:29, 20 June 2009 (UTC)

Would the FBI really care? I highly doubt it, I mean they would have to look into the complaint but any amount of researching would point to this not being a DoS attack or anything of the sort. Alot of wackos, CP included, make claims to the FBI and are filed in the wacko pile. No fear gents, gman has limited reasources and tends to spend them on more important issues.

K: I don't think Andy has lost anything tangible; you don't need a lawyer to report people to law enforcement. Andy seems to be pretty embarrassed by the whole thing, however; even mentioning the FBI incident over at CP means instant banhammer.

Judging by the bot report you guys'll have to double the rate to achieve this. So close...! I would like to contribute - who can lend me a program to do it? 194.6.79.200 15:42, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
From what I've noticed, regular refreshing doesn't work. You have to do CTRL+F5 to renew the cache of the page in order for it to work (this was tested using one page and checking its pageview count continuously). I'm using jitbit MacroRecorder to do CTRL+R (since Opera doesn't use CTRL+F5). I've bumped John III up from 31k to 9k so far, but that's only 800 pageviews.
Jitbit's MacroRecorder. You can get a trial program (lasts 28 days). To use: after installation, go into settings and change some stuff like, unclicking the box that says "record mouse movement" or something like that. You would also want to change the speed to low (because you can't refresh too quickly either). Set the loop count to 0 for infinite looping. Then, go to the page you want to refresh, press CTRL+R (activates recording), and press CTRL+F5, then press Scroll Lock (stops recording). View the steps that the program has recorded and make sure to save the macro for later use.
Then, minimize the jitbit window, go to the page you want to refresh, and press CTRL+P (starts playback). Finally, leave your computer running. NOTE: If you try to do any other tasks on that computer, it will screw up your intended purpose of pushing pageviews. Make sure to press Scroll Lock or CTRL+P again to quit the macro. I hope this helped Fuzzy =^_^= 18:22, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Update[edit]

It's still the Fourth of July in Wasilla, Alaska, and it will be for 9.5 more hours. We need about 43k pages per hour to make it but I think there's hope. I'm now running two machines with 12 wikipounders each, and I've configured my script to only access articles known to be less than 12k. These pages are within a couple of percent of Law Terms D, but there's OVER 9,000 of them (more than 11k, in fact), so no probable form of caching could plausibly prevent me from increasing the counter. I've also switched on gzip compression for the extra moar. Mountain Blue 22:37, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

OK, I've joined the gang, I clicked Random Page until three clicks later I found a brilliant stub page. It's not like there's a shortage of them. If we can get this happen by the time Andy gets done with fireworks it would be AWESOME. DogPMarmite Patrol 23:18, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

(undent) Yes, we've been doing between 28,300 and 32,700 pages per hour for the last day or so. I have bandwidth for a lot more, but Crazypedia seems to be maxed out. If I open more floodgates I get hyperbolically longer loads and more errors to boot. The bottleneck seems to be their database, not their bandwidth; gzip compression for the on-the-wire data had close to zero effect. Guess we should have started earlier.

It just occurred to me what we have actually achieved here is robbing Andy of his big moment. He probably has been eyeing off that 100,000,000 for along time, since he past 50,000,000, but now it means nothing because it was achieved with an elaborate page bump operation.

Even if they would, we could simply hammer them again the next time they get close to 100M close to 50M two years from now. Mountain Blue 01:22, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

demonstrating we were not targetting any particular article. Yeah--but there are three "Law Terms" in the top 20 now...totally obvious...TheoryOfPractice 04:03, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

None of my hits went to those articles. I was more interested in obscure stubs about ancient historical figures...there's no point trying to fight the battle at top, I reckon, and so I went for the least visited stubbies at the bottom. --DogPMarmite Patrol 04:26, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Video games[edit]

I don't know what he is talking about. If video games influenced people the result of Pac-Man should be that we have an entire generation of people that standard around in dark rooms, with bright flashing coloured lights, listening to repetitive electronic music, whilst taking magic pills. - π 01:02, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

It's called public schooling. See what I did there? :D AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 01:15, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Shows how outdated they are. They just picked up on this now. Wait until they learn about games like Assassin's Creed. Anyway, how can two players dying of heart attacks be used against violent video games?--Nate River 01:24, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
All of you missed the tunnel that connects the two sides of the room such that you can go from the left side of the room to the right side of the room by travelling left. It's the desire to find this tunnel that stem a bunch of scientists to look for things such as wormholes.
And then why the age of consent (age of the victim that get people accuse of statutory rape) is lower than the age rated for sexually explicit games, while the opposite happens for legally using guns killing people (The military has a age limit higher than the teen rated games, I think)?

What exactly do they mean by violent video games? Are they talking about T rated FPS? Stuff like God of War, DMC and Assassin's Creed I understand (I actually have to show my ID when buying these where I live) but seriously. Parents have to look at the rating systems of games and understand that they are no longer simple distractions like the games they grew up with (my mom cannot understand why I still buy games, especially when I bought my PS3)--Nate River 01:41, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Tough computer game laws, you should try living in Australia. Games are sold in New Zealand with stickers on them that say "banned in Australia" as a marketing devise. - π 01:54, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Heh, it works too. NZ has everything Australia wants but cant have. Like an intelligent populous, awesomely violent video games and better looking woman, like Helen Clark. Ace McWickedi9 02:03, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Cool, I'd actually buy them with that kind of label. I'm nearly pissing myself reading the SCOTUS. If Andy could pass Harvard law, I actually think that I could. I'm still wondering which violent rating theey are talking about. Violence, cartoon violence, excessive or graphic? All of the above perhaps? Or just the ones with blood and gore? I cannot see them having difficulty with those FPS used by the US to promote the army. Hell, playing Ace Combat almost makes me want to join the air force--Nate River 02:13, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
If you can pass law nearly any where else, you can pass it at Harvard. Most unis teach the same things (the god botherer ones being an exception). Harvard is just harder to get into, once you are there it is much the same course work. The difference between you and Andy is he has connections, although you are probably a bit smarter. - π 03:09, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Help me decypher this Schlafly-quote
Some claim that 2/3rds of videogamers are over 18 years old, but far more people are over that age and a much higher percentage of minors are videogamers
Teabag 03:00, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
I think it means that Andy plays video games in his spare time (he's well above the age of 18), and I'm not sure about the second part. Fuzzy =^_^=
I actually figured it out and it does make sense. Congrats Andy. Teabag 03:05, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
I think I figured it out but it doesn't make sense. More than 2/3 of the general population (of the U.S.? World?) are over 18 years old, but the percentage of minors that play videogames is greater than that of adults, therefore less than 2/3 of those who play videogames are over 18 years old. What about an hypothetical population of 50 minors and 150 adults, where 10 minors (20%) and 25 adults (16.667%) play videogames? FlareTalk 03:33, 29 June 2009 (UTC)
Oh, I'm sure Andy would love Assassin's Creed. Kill a traitor, yayy! Kill an abortionist, yayyy! Kill a moslem, yayyyy! Kill a guy who burns books. Eh, bummer, burning books is cool - hope the next mission makes up for it... Kill a guy with a French-sounding name, yayyyyy! --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 13:12, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
its all statistics , say 1000 people in the world 300 of them gamers , that means that 200 are over 18 , thats 2/3 of the gamers, sp 200/700 =200/7 % = 28% of adults and 100/300 = 33% so percentage wise under 18 is bigger ... I think ...but that would mean he got a statistic right ;( Hamster 03:48, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Concierge Medicine WIGO[edit]

This is the latest in a string of reasons why you should never trust the right wing's answers to health. It clearly is trying to make healthy life exclusively for the rich and powerful. These people seem to be making our answer seem like the WAY more common sense answer. --Crazyswordsman 00:00, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

I hadn't heard that this was part of any "plan" as such. This has been a phenomenon in the last 8 years or so, mostly in wealthy areas. It's never caught on near me (chronically depressed economy). Basically, you pay a doctor a yearly fee, say 1000 bucks which puts them on retainer. They still get to collect payments for individual services, but they take on far fewer patients and basically make themselves more available, e.g. anytime appointments, meeting you at the ER, no waits ever, snazzy office, etc. The fee lets the doc take on fewer patients and treat them the way most doctors would like to if they weren't reliant on volume. It's a practice that makes me squirm a bit, but not antithetical to fairness in health care, as long as those who cannot afford concierge care are still provided for. -- Asclepius staff.png-PalMD --Unhand me, scoundrel! 00:21, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Looking at it that way, it seems that it sounds acceptable. But still, HMOs shouldn't be telling doctors how many patients they have to be seeing, which is what happens under the current system. --Crazyswordsman 00:56, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
True, but the concierge system makes the doctor a bunch of guaranteed cash, which offsets doing less procedures for money - 50 to 100 patients sounds reasonable to me, that's a lot of cash! Also, the HMO does not say how many patients a doctor must see, they limit how much time they'll pay for, right? ħumanUser talk:Human 01:05, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
"Your money or your life" is supposed to be a cliched line in Westerns, NOT a public policy! --Gulik 04:34, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Agreed. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:50, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

I would look at concierge medicine as more of a symptom than a problem. The financial and lifestyle realities of primary care are an enormous deterrent to med students. Non-procedural primary care visits are billed to low that a doctor has to see a huge patient load in order to pay the bills- you get paid more to resect a lung cancer than you do to finally get your patient to quit smoking. You get paid more to perform a gastric bypass than you do to help your patient lose weight. You get paid more to amputate a foot than to control a patient's blood glucose. Surgeons deserve to be paid well for what they do, but primary care providers shouldn't be neglected. So because of volume demands we often see fifteen minutes per patient visit. Most people become doctors because they genuinely like people, are interested in them, and want to help them. Fifteen minutes is not enough. A concierge clinic allows a doctor to practice medicine the way they remember their childhood doc practicing. Is this fair? It's a good question. But this phenomenon is something we should pay attention to. Unless we fix primary care, we can't fix the system as a whole. Corry 06:14, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

Well put. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:39, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Two things I should clarify: the above paragraph makes it look like I'm a physician. I am not. I am a third year medical student. Furthermore, reading above it appears that my only concern is money. It is not, although financial pressures are undeniable. If you attend a private medical school and finance your education through loans (like most everybody does) you almost can't afford to be a family doctor because of the debt load. Corry 20:14, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I'd have to agree with corry that it is a symptom, although under any system, including single payer, this kind of arrangement will be attractive to patients who can afford it.-- Asclepius staff.png-PalMD --Unhand me, scoundrel! 00:28, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
You know, the country I live in has a single-payer system as well. When my wife gave birth last year, she decided that it was important for her private OBGYN to be there during the birth, especially since a C-Section was looking necessary. It meant, necessarily, paying him a healthy sum under the table. Ironically though, since so many other things were free or reimbursed, we ended up paying much less than my sister, who gave birth in the USA a few months later. But I forget, socialized medicine causes rationing, and it kills people, so the USA's system is many times better. *Cough* Junggai 11:11, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
