Conservapedia Club[edit]

The number of homeschoolers to visit Washington doubles - another example of geometric growth in an more and more conservative world.

But how many are there? 2? 20? 200?

Starting a Conservapedia Club is a brilliant idea: most certainly some of the kids at a club will share a computer - or at least an IP address. To prevent premature blocking, perhaps Ed Poor will undertake the task to contact them - and vouch for them? Shudder...

larronsicut fur in nocte 16:24, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

We all know Andy can't even be bothered to maintain his shitty blogsite, let alone watch after numerous kids. My bets are around 10 students, give or take. I can just see them taking off in all directions while he has this blank stare of satisfaction that he's making a difference. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 18:17, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I was just thinking about this when I was earlier on today - his annual trip to Washington. What exactly does he do there? Try and educate them or something? "This is where Jesus landed over 200 years ago and invented the Bill of Rights!" SJ Debaser 18:38, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Why does Conservapedia Club give me the creepy mental image of a teenage girl hanging posters of Andy? Vulpius 19:28, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm thinking "Schlafly Youth". And trying to come up with some comedy possibilities for starting one of these. --Gulik 20:13, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Maybe he just wants a bunch of public schoolers to try and join so he can insult them and recommend watching Comedy Central. --PitchBlackMind 20:24, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Either that or he wants to try and goad some public school administration into shutting down the club so he can sue them for "persecuting Christians." Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 20:43, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Funny how he doesn't say when the trip will be. Also, there's no article on "Conservapedia Club"... ħumanUser talk:Human 20:48, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
That's typical Andy, really. Wasn't there that "Andy Schlafly will be giving a talk!" issue where he wouldn't even give out details when people specifically asked? --Sid 21:00, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm feeling a Schlafly Youth Fun article. Where they all wear little uniforms and glasses and comb their hair like Andy. SJ Debaser 10:04, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
It's all reminsicent of Ken's shououts that something is going to happen on the internet. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 10:20, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
When I heard "Schlafly Youth", I immediately thought of the inverse of that Chick tract with the little Hitler youth type kid. "Andy, Andy, my parents might be... urg... liberals..." PsyGremlinWhut? 22:45, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Now I'm thinking of the old Mickey Mouse club opening song.
"Hey there, hi there, ho there, you're unwelcome as can be
A-N-D, R-E-EW,
SHa-AL-AF-eL-eY!
Schlafly Youth! (Schlafly youth!)

Forever keep our lib'rul hating high! (High! Hi! Heil!)
Who's the guy who keeps CP

Andy informs SCOTUS that Video Games source of all evil[edit]

Not sure if anyone else posted this; never saw it. This is what inspired his absurd news item a week ago: [1] It's the references to Atari-caused-death and Sega violence which make it most amusing. PubliusTalk 20:44, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

OH, that's fine research Herr Publius. Well done for finding this, lots to go through here. But WTF? Did The Governator hire Schlafly? We The People need to know. (Answer: hardly). --DogPMarmite Patrol 21:58, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Good Lord, that makes for wonderful reading. This document submitted to the Court reads just like a CP article of his - endless assertions and unreferenced "it is obvious that"s; Andy bleats on and on about the "smoking causes cancer" cover up; if "Nintendo learned the message that “violence sells video games to children” from competitors Sony and Sega, as Andy claims, why then did they have such enormous success with the utterly childs-play Wii? Oh Lord I can't go on. No wonder no real Court takes him seriously. --DogPMarmite Patrol 22:15, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
There was an edit conflict here, but damned if I'm going to adjust the indents. You'll just have to suffer for your actions of daring to add stuff before me. Anywas, great find Publius! Skimming through it, some things that amused me:
  • The paper had the following bookmarks generated:
"New Cover"
"In the" "Petitioners,"
"Respondents."
"BRIEF OF AMICUS CURIAE EAGLE FORUM EDUCATION & LEGAL DEFENSE IN SUPPORT OF PETITIONERS"
"New Tables"
"New Brief" etc.
  • First line: "Eagle Forum Education and Legal Defense Fund (“EFELDF”), a nonprofit organization founded in 1981, is a pro-family group that has long advocated fidelity to the text of the U.S. Constitution." You almost lost my interest at the start, Andy.
  • "There are many studies confirming what should be obvious: hours of violent video-game-playing by an impressionable, addicted child leads to increased likelihood of violent behavior." Perhaps that's cause the kid was already an addict, hurrrr
  • The younger brother allegedly got mad because he got beat at some video games and got the gun.” Yesss, there was NO problem at all with the kids HAVING DIRECT ACCESS TO A LOADED GUN
  • "Although such deaths are unusual, the stress violent video games cause can be seen in most players. Players’ limbs twitch; “[o]ften, they pound the machines as if they were battling real invaders.”" Hahaha, no comment necessary!
  • From different paragraps:
    • "Just as researchers could be found for decades to deny that smoking causes lung cancer..."
    • "..becoming desensitized and even brainwashed into violent thought and action patterns..."
    • "It is not easy to prove a direct causal link between pornography and gambling and the harm they cause, just as for decades it was difficult to prove that smoking causes cancer."
Though the Assfly manages to supress the shouting of his crackpot keywords in most of the article, it does occasionally break through, especially with smoking & pornography.
  • He keeps on talking how everybody knows that these violent video games made by "predatory, billion-dollar video game industry that churns out increasingly graphic blood and gore" will "cause the child to buy into the rampages of murder and other heinous crimes that he is acting out". However, most sources seem to be random websites (http://home.hiwaay.net/~lkseitz/cvg/death.html, really Andy?) or some paper source which sounds suspiciously like a gossip column (most used source: Death by Computer Games,” Shanghai Star).
  • "Voluminous research data reinforce the common-sense view that violent video games are hurtful to the young people addicted to them, and these games even place those around them at risk for being victimized too." See, THIS is one of numerous places which could've used a proper source!
  • "Our “resilient species” can elect representatives to protect against the corruption of the youth." CP did say that there isn't really such a thing as quoting out of context.. Also, for some reason this quote makes me feel like I should start welcoming our Lizard Overlords.
  • "CONCLUSION The Petition for Certiorari should be granted. " . Or else Andy will write up SUCH a scathing rant on you on his blog!
Sorry for the overly use of bulleted points, I tried to make it a bit readable. I'll leave the legal stuff for someone else to pick through. I think he stated that videogames shouldn't be sold to kids, because it was also forbidden for cars with audio equipment to bother pedestrians with their rantings. --GTac 22:20, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
It's all just wonderful. To be complete, it would only need "the video game industry is brainwashing addicted children into beating balls at eachother with paddles, throwing barrels at plumbers, jumping on mushrooms and turtles, and feeding coffee-soaked cheerios to pet hedgehogs. Deny this and lose all credibility. 2+2=4. Godspeed." PubliusTalk 00:36, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah. So when Andy agrees with research results, said results are 100% accurate and cannot be called into question. But when Andy disagrees... well. The research was just crap to begin with. Obviously. X Stickman 01:07, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
So why don't we copy it over and do our wonderful RW magick trix on it? Side-by-side, perhaps, or maybe we have enough tape of him talking now that we could audio-animate it? ħumanUser talk:Human 02:23, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh, it also pissed me off that it doesn't have page numbers. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:24, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I noticed that as well. I mean, what sort of legal document doesn't have page numbers? I can only assume that he typed it himself as any competent legal secretary would have used them as a matter of course. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 10:36, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
As someone with a background as a (competent) legal secretary, I fully endorse this statement. --Kels 20:18, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Whoops, I take that back - they're at the top of the pages, not sure why I didn't see them. Although, it's odd that when scrolling the right side bar thing, the page numbers aren't displayed like on most pdfs. So, anyway, do we want to side-by-side it? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:40, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
It's too bad that most video game addicts (like me) are weaklings. Because, you know, I've gotten mad a few times, I've "choked" a few people, and I've been punched by another gamer.. but you know, none of it actually hurt anyone. We're so darn weak.. manual violence doesn't do anything significant. The main problem is, yes, the easy access to automated weaponry (guns, et cetera).
Another point, if a gamer mostly plays RPGs (talking about myself here), does he have an increased tendency to have violent bouts? The answer is "no". Why? Because I was more peaceful than my brother ever was. And my brother? He was one of those study freaks, always coming home at 9pm and going to sleep at 10pm. So, by my deductions, it is not video games that turn people violent, it is countless hours of studying and the stress the world has to offer. (video games help me relax and keep me from "sinful" things.. sometimes) Kix, they're not just for kids~ 17:07, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Fourth of 7[edit]

http://conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Fourth_of_July&action=history

Ah, good times, good times. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:17, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

So, apparently exposure to CP causes reasonable writing to slowly deteriorate:

"Everyone whose work is not vital (like nurses and police) takes a day or two off work, and people enjoy the summer weather with cookouts, get-togethers, and, at night, displays of fireworks and bonfires. Most towns hold parades, as well as usually sponsoring safe fireworks shows. Some people hold re-enactments of Revolutionary War era events."

Was bit-rotted merely by being on the CP server to:

"Most American businesses are closed and the citizens enjoy the summer holiday with cookouts, get-togethers, concerts, baseball, picnics, barbecues, bon fires, parades, and at night time enjoy displays of fireworks. Some people hold re-enactments of Revolutionary War era and some people give political speeches at events across the nations cities and towns."

I want my edits back, Mr. Schlafly!
I also want to know how the bonfires turned into a daytime activity and became two words. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:15, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Ah, Andy finally repaired the liberal bias in my choice of name for the article by cutting and pasting and redirecting (couldn't use "move"?) to the title of a movie... ħumanUser talk:Human 20:14, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Moar Conservative words.[edit]

Yup. Now it's "catharsis". Unsurprisingly Andy gets the year wrong (although he's close), as well as the definition. OED: noun the release of pent-up emotions, for example through drama. Dictionary.com: the purging of the emotions or relieving of emotional tensions, esp. through certain kinds of art, as tragedy or music. 1795–1805. Nowhere (although I'm ignoring Mirriam-Webster) are the words "in writing or teaching or confession" mentioned. Andy, if you're going to pull stuff out of your ass, at least try and make an effort - or do you want to look like a prick? --PsyGremlinWhut? 12:21, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

An ancient greek word is now conservative? He really doesn't have any knowledge of... well... anything, does he? PubliusTalk 15:46, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
I did check MW and that's where Andy got the date from, but even their definition says "purification or purgation of the emotions (as pity and fear) primarily through art" so just where he's sucked his "definition" from I dunno. Even cp:Catharsis disagrees with him. --PsyGremlinWhut? 16:02, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
That is pretty bad. Catharsis derives of course from Aristotle, where his 18th century date comes from I have no idea. It is also a phenomenon that I have long been fascinated with. The psychological and neural underpinnings of such a processes are fascinating. I have been tinkering around with some models using mirror neurons, but I digress. The whole point of catharsis is experience not expression. Telling someone the things that are bothering you, and feeling better is not catharsis. Catharsis is the cleansing sensation that is derived through a shared experience with something you are witnessing. Hence why art plays so highly in any discussion of catharsis. I imagine that for most artist the ability to get people to so identify with your subject that the emotional climax of your piece creates the same climax in the viewers is the height of what art can be. tmtoulouse 16:45, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
And sex, of course. Oh, and "new layer is now 0-1-2-3, ripe for a good 1900s word worthy of being the 100th for that century" he's not even pretending to try any more that his conclusion is based on his data rather than vice versa, is he? (I know, that's old news, but still...). ħumanUser talk:Human 20:02, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

So if things are getting more and more and more conservative as time goes by, doesn't that mean that working backwards Conservatism didn't even exist in the Garden of Eden, or by his workings even before the 10th century or so? --Kels 20:12, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Correct. It was invented in the 17th or 18th century by Devout Christian philosophers and Doctors of Divinity, and has grown in a Euclidean fashion ever since. Parallel lines, after all, never meet. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:16, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
That assumes it's working in a linear fashion. If it works in exponential fashion, you'd expect one guy (conservative) in the village (one of Noah's kid, I wonder which one) poisoning converting the whole population (of liberals). K61824TK = Terry Koeckritz 02:55, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
No, KT, it doesn't. It's geometric, or aren't you paying attention? No wonder these liberal atheistic children in public schools murder each other on a daily basis when they deny the obvious facts of conservatism and its booming rape of words! ħumanUser talk:Human 04:23, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Nat'l Enquirer of the Internet(s)[edit]

Okay, that tickles me terribly. The fact that the Liberal Gossip page mentioned in the WiGO cites for the term "National Enquirer of the Internet" a mirrored version of the CP article on Frei Republik! Andy's just not even trying to hide the crazy these days. --Kels 19:40, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

I love that he added John Schlafly as a "conservative figure" who has had destructive and false rumors spread about him. I always wondered how he dealt with a gay brother, and I should've known: by pretending it isn't true.--PitchBlackMind 20:13, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Normally, I'd say this was the work of editors of a certain nature, but then Schlafly made a front page post about the Daily Mail talking about how Michael Jackson, gasp, did drugs. The edit summary was "Hollywood Values emerge about Michael Jackson". Imitation never lives up to the real thing. 76.105.223.232 23:25, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Sarah Palin In Jack Boots.[edit]

I love the juxtapositioning of the images in this. It looks like Sarah Palin is wearing jack boots. I suspected as much... StarFish 20:31, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

Hehe, that's funny, that is. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:54, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Ahahaha! I lol'd. <-As fatigue increases, eloquence... gets badder 220.240.15.42 21:42, 4 July 2009 (UTC)

The competition[edit]

I found a blog that has some interesting insight on it about CP. We get a few shout-outs as well. Can anyone here claim this as their own doing? Aboriginal Noise Oh, what a lovely tea party! 21:51, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty convinced it's one of us or someone who reads us. On of the links on the side is SirChuckB's blog and that's pretty obscure (sorry chuck, but you gotta update that sometime!) It's quite a good one though, boils down CP's recent greatest WIGOs into readable English. Totnesmartin 22:39, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
It is Psy's blog. - π 08:19, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Er... yup... guilty as charged. (Thanks for the comment too!) --PsyGremlinWhut? 10:25, 4 July 2009 (UTC)
Really? I think it's CUR's. --The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 21:21, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Mr. Schlafly, please pick up the red courtesy telephone[edit]

Yo Assfly! Why don't you get off your ass and GET A JOB or something so you can afford a decent WEB SERVER? Huh? I can punk your bitch into a FUCKING COMA with two netbooks and a free hotspot in FUCKING MAYFIELD. You know what Mayfield calls itself? Mayfield calls itself THE CENTER OF THE NEW ZEALAND PIG FARMING COMMUNITY. And it FUCKING IS! No offense, but WHAT THE FUCK? Seriously, WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK?? You have SYSOPS that take it up the ass harder than that. I recognize you're not exactly SCOTUS material but you could at least SELL THE YUGO or something. Be creative, man. If you can weasel your way to a fucking LAW DEGREE without opening TWO BOOKS, you can weasel yourself into some FUCKING CONNECTIVITY. — Unsigned, by: Mountain Blue / talk / contribs

Ahhhh its always nice to see a fellow countrymen losing his wick, I think may have even been to Mayfield. Rant on good sir. Ace McWickedi9 20:39, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I see someone rolled through a liter of whiskey and posted. Love it. Epic rant is epic. --PitchBlackMind 06:10, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
He has a job, with a decent sized nest-egg to boot. Conservapedia is not a top priority.. It's not in his top 5, but probably still in the top ten though.
He has lots of books in his library. I quizzed him on a few, and he faired better than you would have expected.
Just because you say "no offense", doesn't make it any less offensive. Kix, they're not just for kids~ 06:35, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
At PBM, yeah, well, people do rant here because we don't mind. At KTLTLKKAMES, yeah, we know he has a fat bank account. "Real job"? Lawyering for his mother's Eagle Forum? Retainer for AAPS? Lots of books? So do I. And I haven't read 2/3 of them, but I could still convince a 20 year old I had. No offense, of course, but I wonder if maybe you knew what was in those books well enough to quiz him? ħumanUser talk:Human 07:00, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Hopefully I'm sleepy and that wasn't supposed to be as rude as I read it. But in case it needs to be cleared up, I said I loved the rant. Should've bolded it apparently.--PitchBlackMind 07:07, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, I think I might have really been referring to MB's rant not your comment on it. </scotch> is no excuse! ħumanUser talk:Human 07:17, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Kektklik, I am curious. If he seems to a be half-way decent, thoughtful person in real life, what do you think is the basis of his extreme ideological blindness, ignorance, and bigotry online? I understand that CP is not his highest priority, but lack of priority does not explain what happened in the Lenski affair last year. I know you have a different perspective, and I am honestly wondering what your thoughts on this matter are. What is with him that he behaves the way he does at CP or anywhere else online that he has posted? Kaalis 18:56, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
People behave differently on the Internet, simply put. We are capable of hiding behind our usernames (for the most part) and act accordingly to whatever fantasies we want. I am a woman~ *flirts with Radioactive afikomen* (just giving an over-the-top example)
Andy lawyers for more than just EagleForum, he also has a few petty cases here and there. (I saw his hours typed up on the family computer a few times). If I didn't answer the question completely, then I guess I can't read too well.
Per the comment below, his primary employment (and income) is being a lawyer. The homeschooling "business" only earns him--I would venture a guess--about 1/6 of his income (after taxes). Kix, they're not just for kids~ 22:23, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Interesting that he earns money from being a lawyer. I wonder who his clients are and what kind of work he does. My research of his federal cases reflected the he basically has very little federal practice experience and isn't a great legal writer for someone with his educational pedigree. I have no idea about state court cases because the databases aren't located in a single place and are hence a pain to research. Oh, and Foucault's Pendulum was a best selling novel, hardly obscure, a sort of Illuminatis! meets The Da Vinci Code written at a college level rather than a 6th grade level. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 00:14, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
So very little federal work and 0 New York state court appearances in more than 12 years. See here. I'm checking to see if New Jersey has a similar database online. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 00:26, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Right, so I'm not finding a NJ database, just sporadic references online to a few amicus briefs he did for right wing outfits and some other political hired gun work he's done, like suing the West Virginia Trial Lawyers Association on behalf of a physician for the Associations part in the state's "unfavorable medical liability insurance climate." I wish he had a website up describing his practice. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 00:31, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm not at liberty to discuss Andy's clients. >.>

YOINK!...SUCKER!![edit]

Andy invites Flanagan to a gun-control debate (twice!). Flanagan begins badly. Andy repeats desire for an open-minded debate, then kicks Flanagan in the nuts. Flanagan tries again. Andy throws dirt in Flanagan's face, and TK hits him from behind.--WJThomas 18:08, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Bonus Schlafly Statistic (see his edit comment): Guns are used for defensive purposes 40 million times/year in the USA (guns used defensively 100 times more than criminally--100 x 400,000 = 40,000,000). Even Loony John Lott and his ilk don't claim more than a million or two defensive uses/yr.--WJThomas 18:08, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Gun control is a very entertaining subject to attempt to engage Assfly on. Reality is very skewed toward the efficacy of gun control. Attempts to mount counter-arguments require very careful quote-mining and cherry-picking which Andy is not exactly capable of. Instead, we get awesome Schlafly statistics, references to unsourced "research" and, of course, teh banhammer. Fun indeed. And yes, Andy, I was very amused.

Autism[edit]

It's been around a while. He shills for an anti-vax (among other things) doctor club, has for years. The vax-autism "link" is made very readily. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:27, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks, Human! Ah jeez, I can't believe I didn't put that together. He seems to be especially preoccupied with it at the moment though. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 22:18, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
(editing from phone so might screw up) THIS is what first drew me to Rational Wiki, the whole vaccines cause autism nonsense. Anyone with half a brain cell can surely see the lack of any link between them (besides one guys dodgy lawyer funded study based on the opinions of a few parents) and that the complications that MIGHT arise with a vaccine are actually more likely to happen through catching the disease itself! Smg87 22:31, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
I've always been flabbergasted by the anti-vaccination cranks, I just don't get it. Even if you honestly believe in the very shaky theories about vaccinations being a cause in autism... you have to completely ignore the positive effect they have, and that's bloody hard to ignore. ESPECIALLY considering it means you're putting your kids' lives on it, and possibly kids around them. Honestly, what the fuck people. --GTac 00:18, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
The anti-vacc people I've met have exhibited some of the most immoral thinking I've come across: they unabashedly don't vaccinate their kids because they're convinced it's connected with some sort of diseases/disorders, but gladly leech off the vaccination of others by relying on herd immunity (while blaming sundry random problems on vaccination). "I don't want my kids to get sick, but if others get sick/get autism/get ADHD/are retarded/fund Merck while protecting my kids, so much the worse for them." There'd be a bit of schadenfreude involved if the parents got rubella rather than their poor kids. PubliusTalk 00:32, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I think they're too far removed. The people who now front the Anti-Vaccine crap weren't alive for the true epidemics. They weren't alive when Polio was destroying America, or the Flu, or Measels, Mumps and Rubella.... Or any of that crap. So they can convince themselves that it's just a government/big industry plot to make money. PS, anyone else notice that a lot of the people who front this are the ones who also argue against government regulation of the same industry they claim is knowingly giving kids Autism for profit? How do they function with all the polar opposite positions they take? SirChuckBObama/Biden? 2012 00:41, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I'll admit, there is no real evidence for an MMR-autism link, and the guy that faked results did more damage to that cause than any one else. But why refuse to give seperate vaccines? MMR is available only as a triple shot. Say what you like about autism, that's definitely a health risk. Why not three seperate vaccines over a period of months, less likely to cause an adverse reaction. Why not? Because then you might not take them all. Drug companies have no interest in creating a cure, only a treatment. Laurent Cousin 06:36, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Sorry, but I have to strongly disagree with you. The medical rationale for making a triple vaccine is simple: less likely to miss shots, better overall protection. So many people miss their shots and suffer the consequences (myself included). Why not combine them? There is no danger with a triple vaccine. Also, there is more chance of an adverse reaction with single shots, no country in the world advocates them over the MMR vaccine. --Smg87 06:59, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
The MMR vaccine is given at a time when the child is most susceptible to those three diseases. Single jabs for each one would be delayed over periods of time, during those delays the child continues to be at risk for the other two diseases. So let us play Russian Roulette with a child, and pick which of the two diseases the child remains at great risk for, right? Should we let the parents chose maybe? That's a hell of a Sophie's Choice. How is having the three vaccines in a single shot a greater health risk than having them in three separate shots? There is certainly no evidence that I am aware of that there is any increase risk, and when the alternative is randomly leaving open a child to a debilitating and often deadly disease...well there is your answer. tmtoulouse 07:01, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Is he deliberately ironic?[edit]

I notice Andy posts an article about schools in Tampa Bay wanting as 40-100% grading scale, which he heavily criticises. Given that he use an 80-100% grading scale (he marks a student wrong and only deducts 2 of a possible 10 points) isn't that a little rich? - π 03:19, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Sorry just noticed the WIGO, I stopped reading them a while back. - π 03:23, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

Point of etiquette[edit]

What's the proper thing to do if I see a WIGO that's clumsily written and getting low scores, and would be far more effective funnier if it were rewritten to make its point more succinctly? Should I (a) rewrite it, (f) leave it alone and add a new WIGO for the same CP event, or (q) ignore it entirely and go watch 'Ninja Warrior' on my TiVo? - Cuckoo 13:42, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

a and q are good options. This has been discussed before and previously users felt quite at liberty to alter other people's WIGOs. As long as it doesn't get into an edit war I think that's fair game. It isn't about personal vanity so much as a colaborative project producing a well written page. It's by far the most viewed page on here so it's in everyone's interest to keep it punchy. INO duplicating a WIGO is always a bad plan. If you edit a WIGO you may also want to post in here saying why. StarFish 14:09, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
One has to remember what the "goal" of WIGO-CP is...pointing out the mind numbingly stoopid hypocrisy that drives away the very people it claims to serve.
CP, (if it were run by a less insane person, [we're talking TK here not Aschlafly since the latter doesn't do much day-to-day besides finding new "insights" at the bottom of his Jack Daniel's bottles]), could have been a credible resource, just think what an intellect like William Buckley would have made CP!
As such WIGO's are individual's perspectives on the sheer insanity that seemingly drives the wiki into Never-never land. The "scores" have nothing whatsoever to do with anything save how each item hits the mob on any particular day.
In general I leave badly writ WIGO's to fial on their own, though I have rewritten a few as well. If I wanted to be mean I'd ask to have ye "appointed" to be the official WIGO gatekeeper. You could have the power to decide which WIGO's were "good enough" and I'd sit back with mine popcorn and watch the lulz as it unfolded until you left in disgust and revulsion.
THAT'S WHAT THE ARROWS IS FER!
People eventually learn "what sells" (higher scores) and write them accordingly or stop writing them altogether.
CЯacke® 14:54, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
You know, I was actually a bit worried about that in the first place, CP actually being run by someone competent, if intellectually amoral. Basically think of that, a right-wing slant on all topics, presented plausibly and as a valid take on the facts. Believable misinformation that supports Conservatives, all slant all the time. Could have been problematic, but fortunately we got an incompetent nutter who immediately surrounded himself with fruitcakes and sociopaths, and credibility quickly went in the dumpster and we could all just sit here and laugh at the clowns. Philip, on the other hand, had a much better chance to do something similar for Creationist "facts" over at aSK, but he made one huge mistake. Letting himself be questioned and joining in the debates. Not smart, Creationists must never let themselves be questioned, or their arguments fall apart (even if they don't recognize it happening and handwave it away). There's a reason CMI doesn't have comment sections on their articles, y'know. --Kels 16:26, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Essentially, the danger is a FoxNewsWiki, where you can get utter bullshit analysis, where moron commentators rewrite history (the New Deal worsened the depression. The US won both World Wars virtually alone) and people believe it because they have fancy titles. Luckily, a conservative project can never be sane so long as it is collaborative. In politics and media, the sane do their best to keep the nutters quiet (see the Canadian Conservative Party), but that's hard, if not impossible, on a wiki. PubliusTalk 20:38, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

I don't see any problem with improving wigos, regardless of their "score". Fix typos, spelling and grammar, obviously, but also if something just isn't "reporting on the lulz" well, I say fix it. I see no reason why this one page on the wiki should be immune to "merciless editing" to make it better. I know people are a bit "possessive" of items they add, but still, it's not like they solved some important math puzzle, CP's RC is there for all to see... Also, the possessiveness sometimes leads to premature wigoing (IMO), often a story can be told better once it is finished unfolding. ħumanUser talk:Human 18:35, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

Acedemics and Athletics[edit]

I know this is old news, but for those who haven't yet followed the link under the Home-Schooled football league WIGO, the picture there gave me one of the best lulz I've had in weeks! Junggai 13:51, 2 July 2009 (UTC)

One of Pat Conroy's novels (I think its The Prince of Tides) includes a scene where the narrator remembers when he played high school football, and a pre game pep talk. It goes something like this...

Coach: I want you men to go out there and hit them, and hit them hard!

Team: Yes sir!

Coach: I want to see their fucking blood! I want to see their god damn guts spilled on the field!

Team: Yes sir!

Coach: I need hitters! Do have me some fucking hitters?

Team: Yes sir!

Coach: Let us pray.

That being said, church state issues aside, I see nothing wrong with an athletic team praying prior to the game, asl ong as its asking that they conduct themselves as athletes and gentlemen, no one is injured, etc etc etc. — Unsigned, by: MDB / talk / contribs

That dialogue sounds as if the prayer immediately following would be to Sol Invictus rather than Jesus. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:32, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Speaking as someone who spent some time in locker rooms before football games (I was a manager -- read "waterboy"), Conroy's description was a bit over the top, but not far from reality at all. And both my experience and Conroy's novel were in the American South (me: East Tennessee, Conroy: South Carolina's tidewater region), so the prayer was definitely to Jesus. MDB 18:43, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Aww, shucks. First ListenerX and MDB evoke southern football culture, then JDWpianist goes and creates an article on Gram Parsons, whose "Hickory Wind" always makes me think of my own southern roots. A day for nostalgia, indeed. Junggai 23:09, 2 July 2009 (UTC)
Southern? Wasn't he "country rock" in the sense of leading to the Eagles, Linda, Jackson, etc.? Or am I wrong? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:33, 3 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, Gram preferred to call what he was doing "Cosmic American Music," and apparently wasn't thrilled with the Eagles. But the country rock scene in many ways started with the Byrds' Sweetheart of the Radio, which Gram contributed a great deal to inspiration-wise. Anyway, "Hickory Wind" is a great song about being from the south, and having complicated feelings about it. Junggai 07:13, 3 July 2009 (UTC)

AndyPandy and the Half-blood Prince term 'Continental Drift'[edit]

I knew that Andy was an ignorant git, but this made my jaw hit the floor. Jebus, its not like you have to know a lot about geology to realise that continental drift was an extremely controversial topic in its day, and the only reason it stopped being controversial was the eventual death of an entire generation of geologists.--Precumming Storm 21:24, 5 July 2009 (UTC)

Wasn't Andy recently arguing that continental drift was happening at a rate of several feet per hour or some such? --Kels 21:48, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Should we point out to Andy that conservatives and the church held up recognition of Drift Theory because.... Wait for it...... The Bible said God created the World and said nothing about moving continents apart? It wasn't until the evidence was mounted so high that they couldn't deny it anymore that they finally changed their stance. SirChuckBObama/Biden? 2012 21:52, 5 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeh Kels, I remember that too, he said something like that just a few dozens of yards each year is still pretty slow, or something like that. Also this thread title amused me. --GTac 00:12, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
It was on the Old Earth talk page. Andy lost interest after Addison poitned out that by Andy's calculations the continents were drifting apart at the rate of 8 feet per hour or something After checking the talk page I see that by Andy's calculation they were moving at 8.8 feet per second. Which is pretty quick. Ace McWickedi9 00:16, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
"Someone stop that continent, it's doing 6mph", if I'm not correct? --DogPMarmite Patrol 00:54, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
6 Imperial miles per hour, yes. But it's OK because the continents are only moving apart, right? It's not like the Earth is a globe or anything so nobody's in any danger. Mountain Blue 00:59, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

So I was looking through Conservapedia's wonderful geology section when I found this piece of crap. I'm sorry if I'm highlighting somebody's parody here (Hey, Terry!) but what the hell is this supposed to mean?

"Uniformitarianism is the view that the forces affecting the universe are the same now as at any time in the past. It was proposed by geologist Charles Lyell, and was a major influence on Charles Darwin. Although uniformitarianism has been geological dogma since the time of Lyell, over the last half century, there has been a noticeable shift away from uniformitarianism. It is now, for example, widely accepted that the extinction of the dinosaurs was the result of the collision of an asteroid with the Earth."

What?!? Bil08 01:22, 6 July 2009 (UTC)

This is "serious" creationist "science". If you take courses in biology, geology, chemistry, they do talk about the assumption that the universe is constant. Fortunately in physics where they debate that assumption, they have found that it has been constant or that for the time frames biologists, geologists and chemists are interested in, it is true enough. Creationist see this as a way to wedge there ideas into science by claiming they are just working under different assumptions, however they don't like to draw attention to the fact that their assumptions are false. That last example about meteors is an exercise in equivocation.- π 01:52, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
That's just whack. A rock crashing into Earth is as "uniformitarian" as the orbit of Jupiter. Shit happens. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:01, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
The uniformitarian assumption is that rocks crass into earth at about the same rate, or a rate proportional to the number of available rocks, now as in the past. Huge ones that wipe out dinosaurs show up on average once every few hundred million years. The idea that on catastrophic event effected the earth's geology so the earth's geology must only be effected by catastrophic events is an attempt to squeeze the flood in somehow. I wouldn't try to understand it, creationist are always trying to create controversy and debate where none exists. - π 08:08, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
I think Andy's rate of drift was calculated purely on the width of the Altantic divided by 6013 (2009+4004) years but completely ignoring current measurements which show it to be of the order of a few inches per year. It's quite likely that the rates have varied over geological history as the physical makeup of the earth has changed but it is unlikely that anything approaching 6 mph has occurred for anything more than a couple of seconds in a localised area. Why Andy thinks it surprising that the idea of continental drift is so surprisingly recent as it is "such a simple concept" just shows how dumb the guy is, but anyone who studies geology by reading a dictionary is obviously not going to be in any shape or form an authority. Geology is quite a recent science and macro-geology rather than petrology has only progressed in the last fifty years with developments in geophysics and geodesy. Being able to measure accurately things like distances, and "see" deep structures through analysis of seismic waves or underwater survey techniques. As the continents move so slowly why would anyone think that the continents drift? The initial concept was basically just looking at a map/globe and thinking "hey, doesn't the coastline of Africa fit rather well with that of central and south America?". Early geology was very much about local issues related to mineral extraction and quarrying, so a global perspective was lacking. It's only after we have mapped rocks all over the Earth that we can finally start to piece everything together and most of that has only happened within the last century. Andy's presumption to expound on any and every subject with a confidence and authority derived solely from his religious and political views is simply breathtaking.

Andy/Addy and the 2nd Commandment[edit]

WIGO has AddisonDM (whose name always makes me think of cough syrup) challenging Andy's contention that the Bible forbids images of humans, and tweaking Addy for forgetting the 2nd Commandment. Except...that's not what the 2nd is about--it proscribes "graven images", but does not mention humans specifically, and is generally interpreted as a caution against worshiping "false idols" and statues and whatnot. There's potential for fun here, by the way--While Andy bemoans the good ol' days of image prohibition, he seems fine with it on his website, and there's a long history of graven images (particularly people) within Christianity, particularly in Andy's claimed denomination.

I've never heard of anyone interpreting it as a ban of images of people or images in general. All it says is you shouldn't make and worship "idols", which I believe refers to images, statues etc. representing God or of false gods. All images aren't idols. Etc 18:32, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Indeed, most of the pictures in the masterpiece section on their main page has to be removed if Andy stands by that statement.

Yeah, pibot is cool. It just archives old threads, it doesn't matter where they are in the page. The 100M thing is at the top because it's the oldest extant page. I recently let pibot have its foul and inebriated way with my talk page, saves me a lot of toil and trouble. By the way, Pi, I recommend making the default archiving be "one" thread. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:48, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Easy done. I keep meaning to fix it so that automatically archives without you having to tell it the archive location, so all you need to do is stick down the template with no parameters. After I get that working I'll put it on the bot server.- π 03:04, 6 July 2009 (UTC)
Nutty, I done did it. Pibot is pretty innocuous from what I can tell - when archiving it just reads section headers and the last timestamp in them, and cuts and pastes to archive pages, making new ones when they hit the preset size limit. Manually archiving results in things that look exactly the same to the bot, so no big deal. Hey Pi, is there a way to make a "magic button" on a talk page so pibot will run on it and it alone? After it goes on the house bot farm, perhaps? ħumanUser talk:Human 00:53, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

I just want to say that when I first started browsing Conservapedia (a year ago?

I felt a bittersweet sense of both regret and relief that he wasn't around to continue his impeccable style of censorship and non-debate. Seeing him (and to a certain extent TK) return and begin to go back to work is kind of like finding out that some kind of infamous local legend has come back to a city you just moved into, like a never-proven mob boss or long-suspected sexual predator.

"Conservapedia links to a graph mentioning things that happened 24,000 years ago"[edit]

CP is not expilicitly YEC, never has been. Yes, they are anti-evolution, and have some YEC crap in their articles, but the uber-God-siteowner has never pronounced on CP that YEC is the only answer (yeah, he's made a YECdiot of himself on talkorigins, etc., but not on CP). No big deal, since they are whack anyway. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:22, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeh, Andy mentioned YEC being the only answer a couple of times. Furthermore, since CP's administration is such a mess, they never really make explicit claims on CP's position about anything. Hell, even them having a conservative viewpoint has been confirmed and denied by several admins. --GTac (talk) 13:07, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

Human, I think in various SDG posts Andy has said that CP should be OEC accomodating. However, all his own posts have been YECish and the various lickspittles have tended to echo their master's beliefs. So while the stated intention was not to reject the OEC view, I think all the evidence points to a de facto YEC stance.

Astronauts and Global Warming[edit]

Dear CP, please try to understand how science works (with emphasis on the astronauts and global warming):

1. Science isn't always right.
2. Scientists aren't always right.
3. Science is a process, not a conclusion.
4. Scientists are humans subject to human frailty.
5. Science doesn't claim to have all the answers.
6. Science probably will never have all the answers.
7. Some scientists may claim one thing, other scientists may claim something else.
8. Consensus is important in science.
9. Cherry-picking scientists who only hold your views is not having an open mind.
10. At some point in the global warming debate, there was probably a single scientist or only a few making claims about global warming.
11. Astronauts should probably carry more weight on science subjects like global warming than let's say a graphic artist, but that doesn't make astronauts right.
12. Experts on weather, global warming, the environment, etc. probably should be taken more seriously than astronauts on the subject of global warming.
13. The consensus of scientists working on global warming carries more weight than a few astronauts.
14. And yes, they still could be wrong.
15. But probably not. Jimaginator (talk) 20:16, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
16. The Laws of Thermodynamics are used only in matters relating to the energy of motion. Its use regarding such matters as, say, evolution, radiation, radioactivity and the proclivity of any system becoming more conservative is 0.
17. The term 'global warming' is a fudge developed by the media trying to understand science that lies beyond their high-school education, especially those parts of the media controlled by Darth Murdoch. The correct term is 'climate change'.
18. Weather is not climate. Claiming that it snowed in your area for the first time in 8 years isn't evidence that climate change isn't happening. It is proof that you are a sad git desperate to grab hold of anything you understand to try and disprove something that you don't understand.
19. Truth is a three-edged sword, especially during the Hour of Scampering. If you don't understand something that simple then something as complicated as climate change is beyond your comprehension.
20. Ka D'Argo's primal scream at the end of the fourth series is the most excellent example of a primal scream you will ever hear. This proves that climate change is real. Non-sensible? Not as much as almost all of the arguments used by climate change deniers.
21. Follow the money. Where climate change denialists exist, they are motivated by a vested interest in something that will lose money as climate change is taken more and more seriously. Never trust somebody who is in the pocket of the coal or oil industry. This goes double for people named Scargill. Unless they are named Arthur. Maybe. Or not. You'll have to make up your own mind about that.--Precumming Storm (talk) 00:02, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

And it's degrading to fundies in their faith - Jesus railed against mindless preaching and public praying. So when Jpatt does this shit I can only think that whoever's burning proxies over there will just keep doing it a little longer to waste Jpratt's time.

I find it sickening that an article gets flagged for deletion after you make your first save and while you're still working on it, but that's the way they do it. The safe way to do things is just write in our userspace. We don't delete articles very often here, but that doesn't mean your political articles fit our mission that well... which isn't to say your political writing will be particularly welcome at CP either. TK and his pals have useless little hardons for blocking people associated with our "vandal site." Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 18:53, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

WP has speedy deletion in place because, believe it or not, not all people think that only worthwhile topics deserve an article. Yes, people actually do write about the garage bands and blogs that were started yesterday. The bar has to be set somewhere. Hence, new articles must conclusively demonstrate that yes, people actually do care about this subject. For truly worthwhile subjects, this usually isn't too hard. People who find WP's speedy deletion weird probably haven't watched what's bubbling in wp:CAT:CSD - sometimes the rejected material is rather... awe-inspiring. --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 21:13, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Email blocked[edit]

A look at the block log shows that 'email blocked' now seems to be standard for TK's blocks. I'm sure he's said before that less than 5% of blocks are contested - guess that was too many for him.--Little Bobby Tables (talk) 14:08, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

I think it's standard now, but perfectly consistent with his "admin instruction" that people email or IM him off site. Anyone willing to email TK off site deserves what he gets. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 15:26, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Isn't this same TK who used to lie bleat about how unfair we were to accuse him of blocking, because he has the record of unblocking the most people. Yeah... this from the person who came up with the 'don't undo others' blocks" rule. Editing on CP is starting to take on the same aura as the Western Front's 20 minuters. --PsyGremlinWhut? 16:01, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
TK states an email address on his user-page. So, while he can be contacted, he prevents any conversation between a blocked editor and some other sysop. It's all about controlling the flow of information... larronsicut fur in nocte 16:18, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Or anyone else, for that matter. We often used to suggest emailing various freshly-blocked editors there to tell them about RW. Which we/anyone could do even if blocked - as long as their email function worked. By blocking email, TK hopes to strangle that line of communication. Of course, it's so easy to find us it really doesn't matter. ħumanUser talk:Human 18:00, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

...but I just took a peek at the CP article on Michelle Obama.

That may be the most effed-up I've ever seen--was it WIGO'ed? TheoryOfPractice (talk) 03:11, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

No it does indeed say that. This is a nice example of historical revisionism. Whilst it is true that slaves were often sold by rival tribes it ignores three key points; 1) not all slaves were sold by rival tribes some were kidnapped by traders, 2) this still does not excuse Europeans for participating in the trade, and 3) THIS HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH MICHELLE OBAMA!

Two flaws with RobS's most recent Obama poll[edit]

Here they are:

  1. This is the Raussumen poll, which is somewhat biased. The Gallup poll still shows Obama with a 58% approval rating (which I'll admit is also biased, but the best polls, the Kaiser Polls, only cover healthcare). Still the Raussumen polls are founded by conservatives.
  2. Even if there were no biased polls, the poll shows "strongly approve" vs. "strongly disapprove." It doesn't show approve/disapprove. --Crazyswordsman (talk) 23:57, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
Yeah, only showing the "strongly"s is utterly dishonest, not just "biased". ħumanUser talk:Human 00:21, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

"Wait, Rob, Wasn't it the same Obama approval pollimg you showed the last timeimg?" No, it's not. Same source, etc., but it's a few days (or whatever) later. Look at the graphs, they are different. Lame wigo... ħumanUser talk:Human 04:52, 8 July 2009 (UTC)
Agree. Imagine that, misrepresenting polling data and a deceptive headline to boot. CP must have made it into the MSM.
Seems Obama is still swimming against the tide with the Right Track/Wrong Tack data, after all the "change" we've had. To bad about his declining poll numbers; back in the day Clinton would have barbequed a few Muslim janitors in an aspirin factory with a cruise missile to flex America's might and rally the poll numbers, but a war weary public won't respond the same way this time anymore. Just a symptom of the terrible problems GWB left Obama, I suppose. RobS (talk) 19:53, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

Summer fun[edit]

Wasn't sure if this belongs in the Saloon Bar or not, but since it's about the CP elite I thought I'd post here. A recent thread on WIGA led to some very clever, funny flowcharts that outline the thought process behind some of the responses on ASK. What I thought on reading them was, "Dang, we should have these for Andy, TK and Ken."

So I'd like to propose a friendly contest for July, for the Best CP Flowcharts.

The only thought I had was to have a category for each key personality, i.e. "Best Andy flowchart", "Best TK flowchart", etc., and one extra for "Best Generic CP Flowchart" not related to anyone in particular. We could then vote for Bronze, Silver and Goat medals in each category, and an extra set for Best Overall.

Thoughts? --SpinyNorman (talk) 15:45, 8 July 2009 (UTC)

We love voting. We'll vote on fucking ANYTHING around here. If you have a washing machine and a porcupine, we'll vote on which we preferred.

Conservative Words Flash Game[edit]

Hello - just popping in to let you guys know about a new, education Flash game I made. Some of you may remember my "Operation Flying Grassroots Fortress" game from a few months ago.

Anyway, I recently stumbled onto Andy's "geometrically growing" list of conservative words and thought it would be a nice opportunity for an "educational" game. It's called "ConWords" and is based on Facebook's "Typing Maniac" game app. Basically, you'll see lots of words going down the screen, and you have to type them as quickly as possible.

  * Type only conservative words to gain points
  * Typing liberal words will make you lose "trust". 
  * If your trust goes to 0%, you lose.
  * There are also "ambiguous" words which do neither good nor harm. 
  * Spelling mistakes will lower your trust
  * Letting conservative words go by untypes will also make you lose trust

Pass a level and get a motivational quote from Andy before moving onto the next one. If you type three conservative words in a row correctly, you have a chance at getting one of the 4 powerups.

  * Ed Poor - his maths skills will get your trust back up to 100%
  * Schlafly Insight (the lightbulb) - will highlight conservative and liberal words for the rest of the level.
  * TK's rangeblock (banhammer) - clear all words on the screen
  * Database lock (padlock) - freeze all words on the screen for a few seconds 

Click on the powerup icon in the lower-right to use it. Make sure to click back in the typing box immediately afterwards.

Here is the link: http://composure1.com/conwords.html

Very cool. But: The first time I played, after a few levels the words just stopped coming and wouldn't start again. Hitting return when you haven't typed anything counts as a null word and lowers your score. The second time I played, I don't think it asked me for my name, but it seems to have taken the last thing I typed before closing the tab ("ok") as my high-score-list name. It should ask for a name at the end, rather than at the beginning, unless you're keeping stats on uncompleted games or something. It should also display the new high score list at the end of the game. --Marty (talk) 04:15, 9 July 2009 (UTC)

I can't use these powerups even if my life depended on it. FlareTalk 12:19, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
"NightFlare" (I see you hide behind an anonymous name, like all liberals). If you open your mind and read your Bible, you'll learn how to use the powerups. The liberal media may not admit it, but it's obvious that powerup usage decreases immorality. Deny this, and lose all credibility.... So anyway, yeah, my game is half-assed and broken, just like Conservapedia. I think the main issue is that it will only save your score the first time you play. Unless you fully reload the page after losing a game, it won't work right anymore. There seem to be other bugs as well of course - I'll try to deal with some of them when I get a chance in the next few days. --Composure1 (talk) 13:36, 9 July 2009 (UTC)-

Because it's not. It's "Vive la compagnie." Sometimes French speakers will give a bit of pronunciation to an ostensibly silent vowel at the end of a word. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 18:45, 9 July 2009 (UTC)
Actually that's not quite right. Few vowels are silent in French and the "e" at the end of "vive" should be pronounced. In fact, vowel stresses should be consistent throughout a word unlike in English. Of course regional accents and general laziness mean that many vowels including those in the middle of words are often de-stressed or even excluded altogether.

IPs are registered to companies not locations. You need to have the same ISP as Andy and receive the internet in the same way, in order to get him blocked along with you.

No Π, Andy can unblock himself, but not for most of his acolytes who go to his secret bunker to homeschool. Perhaps It is safe to assume they spans most ISPs evenly, and if so, any ISP will get a chunk of his acolytes blocked for the lulz (I would suppose the ISPs will assign a segment of the IP address they own within the region, so it may be more or less complicated).

Web, did you miss a zero somewhere? There is like 4x /16 and 1x /17 blocks today. ThiehAhh! my eyes!! 02:49, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Fixed Web (talk) 03:12, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

So, if I forget to log in and post, that means that I'll get blocked? So many unguarded WIFI networks here. --12.172.189.110 06:20, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Hehe.. funny. I had an account that was blocked recently called Over9k. Kix, they're not just for kids~ 17:51, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Quick summary please[edit]

I've been out for a week, and I'm not reading all that crap above me, so someone just summarise in a few words what happened in the past week, pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee-zah. SJ Debaser 12:59, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

TK has been nasty and Andy has been stupid. More IPs got blocked. CP was clickbotted to 100 million views on the 4th. Broccoli (talk) 13:03, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
(EC)Same old shit really. TK blocked unfairly and tried adding RWians names to things. Ken posted news articles about his operations and pictures of weird Darwin/dictator hybrids. Jpatt found even more offensive things to say. Andy was pretty quite. - π 13:05, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
I just saw that Stalin-Darwin thing. So not only was Darwin really Hitler, he was also Stalin, who was alive at the same time. Those wacky conservatives. SJ Debaser 13:09, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Obama[edit]

The Obama page is unprotected atm, if you guys haven't noticed. Web (talk) 15:14, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

So? Is there something factual and encyclopedic you'd like to add? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 15:42, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Factual and encyclopedic? What, do you want me to get blocked? Web (talk) 15:45, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

Page views[edit]

CP 100M views.png

It is so sad to see the statistics page showing 100,500,000 page views and yet the frontpage still only boasts about having 97,500,000 pageviews. Andy where is the update? It has been nearly 10 days already since you last did it. - π 05:08, 10 July 2009 (UTC)

Maybe he'll stop bragging now that TK has pointed out to him that the pageviews are a complete fabrication? It wasn't enough for us to point out that they were mostly people laughing at CP, not going there for the "truth"... ħumanUser talk:Human 06:26, 10 July 2009 (UTC)
Conservapedia speaks truly about conservatism, but in a way that its writers will never realise. Totnesmartin (talk) 08:05, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
I've posted the history of CP page views so people can see how it has been achieved. Redchuck.gif Генгисpillaging 11:42, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
I love that big dip from the Great Transefer Botch. there's another tiny dip later on, which is probably Portsmouth FC or Law Terms D getting "the treatment." Totnesmartin (talk) 12:16, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
The second dip is when their server went down and they lost a week's worth of edits. Redchuck.gif Генгисpillaging 12:59, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

Poor misunderstood TK! WIGO[edit]

The sreencap for that WIGO is quite long but contains the following bit of deceit:

I am willing to "educate" myself about these matters, if only just one person, in the three years I have been an Administrator for CP, would be able to give some understandable reason for their seeming deceit...

Has the whole 12 months from November 2007 to November 2008 (when TK was in the wilderness) been erased from Conservapedia? The great UCLA/TK plagiarism scandal conveniently swept under the carpet? Can oversight be applied to the User Rights log? Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 06:40, 11 July 2009 (UTC)

TK claims he has been a CP sysop for 3 years. From the CP Logs:

TK is made a Sysop: 23:41, 18 March 2007 Aschlafly (Talk | contribs) changed User:TK's user rights from (none) to Administrators.

Goodbye Sysop TK: 01:36, 26 November 2007 Aschlafly (Talk | contribs) changed User:TK's user rights from Check users, nsTeam1RO, nsTeam1RW, nsTeam1_talkRO, nsTeam1_talkRW, Siteadmin and Administrators to nsTeam1RO, nsTeam1RW, nsTeam1_talkRO and nsTeam1_talkRW.

Time elapsed as Sysop 1st time: 8 months, 8 days.

Reappointed to Sysop: 00:40, 1 January 2009 Aschlafly (Talk | contribs) changed User:TK's user rights from Block, Check users, edit, nsTeam1RO, nsTeam1RW, nsTeam1_talkRO, nsTeam1_talkRW, Siteadmin and Upload to Check users, nsTeam1RO, nsTeam1RW, nsTeam1_talkRO, nsTeam1_talkRW, Siteadmin and Administrators. (promotion to Sysop!!!)

Does anyone else get pissed off at his illiteracy, or is it just me? ħumanUser talk:Human 08:18, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
His poor writing doesn't bother me. After all, it's not like he's building an encyclopedia or anything. Totnesmartin (talk) 08:31, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
As a Saturday morning exercise I OCRed the screencap and posted it here. It's probably easier to read that way. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 08:41, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
Don't forget that the prize idiot immediately started referring to himself as a senior admin upon his re-promotion, saying he'd been an admin all along. Clearly, in his own mind, the demotion following his insult to Andy and opening of the SDG never happened. --PsyGremlinWhut? 09:16, 11 July 2009 (UTC)
I think I know what TeaKhead was "thinking". Considering CP hasn't even been around for 3 years yet, "in the three years I have been an Administrator for CP" means 2007, 2008, and 2009 - 3 different years on the calendar. ;) ħumanUser talk:Human 00:01, 12 July 2009 (UTC)
