Too Whipped To Work Up A Proper WIGO[edit]

Has anyone happened to notice that Andy is a half-wit? Here he goes on about how The President is some kinda traitorous foreigner because he said "this country" in reference to the USofA instead of saying "our country". He's mentioned this before, that a real American would always say "our" and not "this". Never mind that it's a perfectly normal phrase, and that a search for "this country" on CP brings up endless examples of said formulation used by every politician and conservative hero that's ever been, from Washington and Lincoln to Reagan and Limbaugh, and Andy himself uses the phrase regularly in his lectures and other rants.--WJThomas (talk) 23:30, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Its the same as republicans having bigger flag lapels. Nationalism bullshit like that really pisses me off. BTW, Andy never has a flag lapel in any of the pictures he puts up of himself. Think he loves American as much as he says he does?--Tabris (talk) 00:47, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
It's a trap. Saying "our" is problematic because it may be misinterpreted as "inclusive we" that people will bash him about including illegal immigrants into the "our" notation. Saying "my" simply will be misinterpreted as "This country is all mine, so f*** off!". ThiehEd Poor types in Chinese? 01:06, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
It doesn't matter to Andy either way, he just needed to relieve his priapism for bashing Obama. If Obama had said "our country", Andy probably would've been all "What does he mean by our country?!! Is this perhaps a vague reference to the Muslim shadow government that has truly installed him into power???????"--PitchBlackMind (talk) 01:17, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Looking at the Gettysburg Address Lincoln referred to the US as "that nation", by Andy's logic he must be even more foreign. - π 02:26, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
All can be understood by assuming Andy = Aspberger's + conservative RC upbringing. (No offense to any RW aspies out there!)--Too tired to log in (talk) 12:47, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Obscene usernames[edit]

I would like to think that the lastest barrage of obscenity at CP isn't anyone from this dark side of town. Its getting a little over the top. Ace McWickedNecron99 02:13, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Great, now if it stops if definitely was "us"? I thought it was mostly a response to our pointing out Andy's (and others') foray into blacklisting strings, probably instigated at anonymous, not here. Could have been "us", of course. Who knows? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:18, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I was always under the impression Ebaum's World does most of the childish vandalism to CP. I have never dived into their forums to find out. - π 05:23, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Jersey politicians[edit]

I couldn't remember if those guys who got busted in Jersey were dems or GOP, so I checked conservapedia. Since there's nothing about it on the main page, I'm guessing they were republicans. Czolgolz (talk) 04:27, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

They're actually almost all Democrats (one Republican); you can't be corrupt unless you're in power, and the Dems have controlled Jersey for quite a while now. [2]. But mostly I just want to quote lyrics to you: "Czolgosz, Angry man, Said, "I will do what A poor man can. Yes, and there's nowhere More fitting than In the Temple Of Music By the Tower Of Light Between the Fountain Of Abundance And the Court of Lilies At the great Pan-American Exposition In Buffalo, In Buffalo." - Poor Excuse (talk) 05:11, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I chose to live in NJ because that is where our Lord and Saviour resides too. The scandal is all over the news. In my opinion, CP is in a bind about this because, yes, it's mostly Dems, but there is also 1 GOP, and a bunch of rabbis. How can CP cover this? Unless they can find that the only innocents are the people they want to be innocent, it's going to be a big problem. My prediction is that it will never make their news. Jimaginator (talk) 14:18, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Is it time for a vote?[edit]

While things seem a bit quiet over at CP is it time for a vote on biggest idiot, abuse of sysop power, etc? I can't remember when we had the last one but it feels like yonks. StarFish (talk) 09:08, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

No need for a vote, Ed Poor is still the biggest idiot, and TK is the ultimate abuser of any sort of power. Now go give them their medals. ħumanUser talk:Human 10:00, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
That's what I was thinking but then maybe Ed is resting on his laurels just a bit. I mean he used to post regularly with often creepy, always bonkers updates on 17 year old episode of Star Trek or whatever. Great stuff. But since winning the biggest idiot award I think it's gone to his head and he just isn't putting the effort in like he used to. StarFish (talk) 10:03, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Nice point and you maked me laff, twice or even thrice. Oh, and I think the ST eps were more like 37 42 years old. What is this world coming to? ħumanUser talk:Human 10:07, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
The last votes were November last year, so it is getting on a bit and Nx has given as a new vote system. The last lot were the Conservapedia Day awards, we just need a hook to get started. Besides I think Jpatt is now the clear biggest idiot. - π 10:15, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Is Ken automatically disqualified to give everyone else a chance? EddyP (talk) 11:22, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Well Ken looked a shoe in last time but he came third. I think we should disqualify Ed, instead he should be given a life time achievement award and enshrined in the Professional Idiots Hall of Fame. - π 11:25, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I don't know how you can be so assertive about biggest... Ed Poor, JPatt and Rob are very close in the race. Also, we should acknowledge Rob for having the biggest balls at CP, being the only one who will directly face criticism and defend himself. — Signed, by: Neveruse513 / Talk / Block 13:38, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I wasn't around for much of Ed Poor, so I have to go with Jpatt or RobSmith. Probably Rob though, Jpatt is just completely insane. --PitchBlackMind (talk) 16:41, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Ed "attention span of a cockroach" Poor is now just a shadow of his former self. He used to throw his weight around, laying waste the maths and science articles in particular, while boasting of his great expertise. See Conservapedia:Conservapedian_mathematics for more info on his rampage in 2008. Now he just harasses teenagers, liveblogs old Star Trek episodes, and is generally weird. I doubt that he would merit any prizes now. BTW, I wonder how his writing course went? Gauss (talk) 18:49, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
I think Andy himself is easily the biggest idiot this time around. He's totally oblivious. Ace McWickedNecron99 02:07, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Many good points, and I suffer from being blinded by the past. Yeah, lets spend the end of the summer/winter picking our awards once more, in time for Andy's next class? I volunteer (maybe) to make award banners with my fabulous PSP skillz. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:31, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Amusing Development[edit]

I tried to look into the consequences of conservapedia's treatment of new editors:

Active editors at CP sorted by time of membership
Active editors at RW sorted by time of membership

The most amusing part: last month, when I took the numbers of active editors (editors who commented at least once over the last seven days) RationalWiki had ~140 active editors, while there were ~170 at conservapedia. Today, the conservapedia's statistic's page states a number of 92 active editors, while there are 130 at rationalwiki (see here).

At the moment, the chance to survive for a new editor at conservapedia are slim to none...

larronsicut fur in nocte 20:28, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Does that mean we grow larger than CP now? This is profound. Nice Job again, LArron. K61824CP≠Child Porn? 21:06, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
how many such active editors on CP survived whatever arbitrary period or number of unreverted edits? IIRC the last few weeks on CP have seen an unusual number of caca dodo usernames that didn't last very long. We don't have that problem. Umm hehe, yeah. I didn't see the graphs because I was editing on a handheld. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:45, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Active users down to 89... this could become a running tally. The blog is shrinking rapidly. --PsyGremlinWhut? 11:55, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Ken and composites[edit]

Say, for the sake of argument, that Ken was actually honest over there at aSK (I know, but just for the sake of argument) and he's actually too incompetent to create those idiotic Hitwin and Obapolean composites. So I was thinking, where are you most likely to find 'shoops that retarded? Why, Little Green Racists, of course! They're all retarded children...I mean, staunch Conservatives over there, and they love that kind of shit. Dunno if that's actually where they came from, I'm not masochistic enough to wade into that sewer to find out, but they do come off as soulmates to the luntics over at CP, don't they? Ken would feel right at home. --Kels (talk) 15:16, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I can't get past the shitty tone on LGF to discern much more than that the blogger is angry and put-upon, or something. The one worthwhile thing I found there is a link to a Daily Show segment dealing with persistent birthers that briefly features Dr. Orly Taitz, Esq., JD, DDM, LRB, the crackpot attorney/dentist/real estate agent pursing several birther lawsuits in federal court. Stewart's lambasting of her is precious. She is a wild and crazy guy. If you don't recall, she or someone impersonating her briefly popped up on Conservapedia and was welcome with a vanity page by Jpratt and a Terry Koeckritz lovemistrust-fest. I surmise from the lack of traffic on her talkpage that DrOrlyTaitzEsq didn't respond to TK's overture, and yet wasn't blocked, for surely TK himself recognizes that any reasonable person not worth pissing off would be offended by his open mistrust. Plus he's a giant coward whose tactics only work when he's harassing the anonymous and (he hopes) powerless. Taitz gets quoted in WorldNutDaily alot more than TK does, as far as I can tell. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 16:08, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Oh, Ken certainly did not create the Hitwin image. In fact, I'm quite sure it appeared on RW before CP. No he got it from somewhere else. Let's face it, Ken is far too stupid to create anything like that. I think the only reason he isn't the overall winner of CP's biggest idiot is because he's too obvious and it's just too easy. That and the fact that's it's pretty clear he has at least some sort of mental disability. DickTurpis (talk) 17:46, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, well, we know Ken can't create new wiki pages without first creating a red link to them, a year or so ago he couldn't figure out how to block people (hint! click the "block" link!), and we know he doesn't know how to rename the images he steals to sensible, non-random strings. Given that, it's a pretty safe bet he doesn't know how to work any image manipulation software. I'd say it'd be a minor miracle if he could work an ATM. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:44, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I am pretty sure Ken did create the one where Darwin sits on Hitlers shoulder and the red type reads "We love Evolutionary racism". That was definiatly all Ken. Ace McWickedNecron99 22:07, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I remember that image! Back when I still cared about CP, I was looking at the evolution article daily to see if he was including a scientific viewpoint (I was new, and didn't know much better) that I showed was missing in the article. When I saw that image, I sent an email begging him to change it back to Hitwin. It was THAT BAD. -- JArneal 22:51, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Gentlemen....

(Unindent) Is it just me or the video they link in that newsbite with the Obapolean composites has the narrator sounding awfully like the guy from Zeitgeist the movie? K61824Who is Terry Koeckritz anyways? 00:10, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm sure I've seen the Darwin on Hitler's shoulders pic elsewhere but Ken probably just added the red text. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 08:48, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Browsing that Little Green Footballs site I came across this posting which alleges that a photoshopped picture of Obama as a witch-doctor with a bone through his nose, was being circulated on a Tea Party mailing list by Dr. David McKalip, a member of the AAPS. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 16:51, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Now that's very interesting. So to use RobS' line of reasoning above, by allowing him to remain a member of AAPS, they must endorse his racism. And just what wiki owner has a close association with AAPS, and may very well have met the man? Why, that means Andy is closely associated with known racists! Rob, you gotta get on this, who knows what other skeletons this "Andy Schlafly" monster is hiding! "This isn't being fecesious, it's a serious question that mandates serious investigation and serious explanations." --Kels (talk) 17:07, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Indeed. "Perhpas this area needs more study." --PsyGremlinWhut? 17:31, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Certainly this new evidence throws edits such as this into a new light. Surely these are "powers" often ascribed to witch doctors, are they not? But the question on everyone's minds is, WHY IS ROB SMITH REMAINING SILENT ABOUT THIS ISSUE?? --Kels (talk) 17:49, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Not worth WIGO-tweaking, but...[edit]

You'll notice that while Obama's exit from the honeymoon phase of approval ratings is front-page newsworthy, no one over at CP is going to acknowledge that Sarah Palin now has unfavorable ratings over 50%, and that her approval is dropping even among 'true believer' Republican Evangelicals. --SpinyNorman (talk) 16:01, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

What they have mentioned about her is that the allegations against her are part of the "Democrat smear machine", and they've put "independent" inside scare quotes when discussing the independent investigator, implying that the investigation is in the pocket of teh evol democrat socialists... except that the whole investigation was launched by the Republican controlled legislature. I guess Alaska is just swarming with teh evol librul RINOs who fail to sufficiently bask in the glow of Sarah's wholesome goodness. Bluefish (talk) 21:35, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

in passing[edit]

While looking at something completely different I noticed that CP's longest page at 297kb was chiefly written by cp:User:MasteRing who was blocked as a sock of Human. Just sayin'. This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 18:13, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

TK continues to rape the site. That long pages page is intesting; lots of strange pages like History of Poland. EddyP (talk) 19:01, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
If you look at them, they're mostly the creation of monomaniacs (and Ken, who's just a maniac). This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 19:17, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

(Unindent) On an unrelated note while I was checking longest page, why is there still people not blocked for posting on the "yes" section on this debateimg and the "yes" section on this debateimg? Waiting TK's Banhammer in 3... 2... 1... K61824TK = Terry Koeckritz 21:38, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I'd contribute to the debate, but the Conservapedia SS already seized my papers and sent my IP to cyber-Auschwitz. Then again, i'm surprised it took them this long to ban me. Their xenophobia has weak points, I suspect. Kinda bummed I didn't get a parthian in, though. EDIT! Yes, I know I invoked Godwin. So sue me. -- CodyH (talk) 22:36, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Well as it's already cropped up in the previous section you can have an exeat. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 09:07, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for pointing this out, it's found my new favourite quote: "You say it should be legalized because of equality. But, it’s because of equality that it shouldn’t be legalized. Homosexuals already have the exact same rights as heterosexuals. A homosexual man can marry any woman he chooses (assuming that she is of legal age and is consenting) just as any heterosexual man can." Just wondering if it's possible to miss the point by a wider margin? Scarlet A.pngd hominem 13:04, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Terry Koeckritz[edit]

Didn't we try not feeding the fellow a few weeks ago in the hope he'd fizzle out and die, kinda like the last series of the A-Team? SJ Debaser 10:21, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

I'm in favour (even though I am also guilty of poking the troll (maybe lancing the boil is a better analogy, given what comes out of him) - it's a bit playing with a loose tooth - you shouldn't but it feels good), he's only feeding on us noticing him and if we ignore him, it'll probably drive to even greater lengths of insanity over there to get noticed. I hereby propose that all future TK WIGO and TWIGO items are <!---'d out. --PsyGremlinWhut? 13:40, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Hell no- most of his stuff is just hate trolling, but some of it is genuinely funny, so why should we deprive ourselves of the lulz? --The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 15:45, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
I'll be honest, I don't find much of anything he does genuinely funny. Maybe if Rob or Ken did it, or even the Koward, but in TK's case there's this overriding sense that it's utterly fake and he's just trying too damn hard to get a reaction. That sort of just sucks the funny out of it. --Kels (talk) 17:15, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
After having silently observed him for several weeks after he blocked my account under completely dishonest circumstances and cowardly failed to respond to my inquiries, I can only say that I agree. His pattern seems to be to read this website for a reaction, dial up his hateful skulduggery on Conservapedia, and refer back here to continue the cycle. Nothing he contributes is substantively interesting. Therefore, all you can look for from him is the same disingenuous button-pushing he's very good at. After only 2 weeks of giving him my intermittent attention (and I'm basically a shut-in) I find him far less interesting than Minesweeper and celebrity blogs. Conservapederast (talk) 17:46, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
You know what's really odd? I find the fact that you're an effective shut-in far more interesting than anything TK's done (I used to be a Personal Support Worker specializing in homecare). --Kels (talk) 18:16, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
TK is a little prick with a little prick. Face it, if it wasn't for him CP would be a very dull place to poke fun at. Therefore, yes, do keep poking the rabid dog with a stick. It's fun to see it foaming at the mouth (note the animal cruelty sentence, this means I am a good person and not a Nazi according to CP). CrundyTalk nerdy to me 21:27, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
You have it the wrong way round. He doesn't react because we poke him; he reacts so that we will poke him. EddyP (talk) 21:34, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
It's not his actions that are amusing, it's the lack of any control being exerted by anyone else that's amusing. TK is now the de-facto head of Conservapedia and it's fun to watch him driving it into the ground. This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 21:41, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Crundy, you've got it backwards. TK makes the place more dull to poke fun at, since he dominates with his clearly intentional trash. What's fun about that? Having idiots like Andy, Ken, Koward, Weird Ed and Rob "The Commies are coming!" Smith who actually mean what they say are fun to make fun of. TK tends to overshadow them, thereby reducing the actual fun. --Kels (talk) 22:50, 25 July 2009 (UTC)
Exactly. TK is just playing to the crowd (us), whereas the others are fricking serious. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:41, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Stalking[edit]

Did anyone catch TK's latest piece of internet stalking? Ace McWickedNecron99 23:53, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

I guess he won't care if I have my skip tracer find a bunch of personal shit out about him so I can post it on my userpage. I love that he's such an inconsistent liar he sometimes says his name isn't Terrence F. Koeckritz. He'll get his in spades. If he wants to call me off he can contact me by email from my userpage. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:13, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
I would like a photo of him. Something compromising. Ace McWickedNecron99 00:16, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
We'd all like a photo of him to puke at. But, please, go light, or at least "careful" on the "stalking". ħumanUser talk:Human 02:46, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Thing I don't get is, like putting our names into his edit comments, how exactly is this supposed to actually hurt any of us? Nobody who enters our names in Google are even gonna get that as a hit, and nobody who takes a look at the page would take it seriously for all of two seconds. It'd be more a case of "who's this mental deficient, and why should I care".

He is indeed a pretty sad man. Thing is, he's actively acknowledging our existence over there by having that stuff on his userpage, he just uses "vandal site" instead of "RationalWiki".

It's a point I've made elsewhere... nobody does more to keep mentioning RW or things like PJR's valid list of complaints than TK (especially now that Ken has stopped his "gentlemen" - probably on TK's orders, which leaves him the only person allowed to keep mentioning us). (Ok, Jpratt too, but that's more a case of moron monkey see, monkey do). He constantly reminds editors that RW exists and even long after the hissy fit over PJR's allegations (like 2 months later) he deletes the ASoK article, citing PJR's "lies" and sending more CP editors out there to find out what he's talking about. It's a clever scheme, and one that even the paranoid like Karajerk and RedRob haven't seen through yet. --PsyGremlinWhut? 10:15, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

(UD) Ok, I'm starting the process of gathering information to send to my skip tracer so he can dig into TK's background. If TK wants to escalate things that's his prerogative. He can't both complain that Terry Koeckritz isn't his real name and that we've put up too much personal information about him. Please privately forward me any information you have about TK - email addresses, location information from emails and IM sessions, IP addresses, telephone numbers, etc. I will keep the results of my investigation private for the time being, but will be happy to forward TK's personal information to parties specifically named on his userpage.

First, it seems there are very few legitimate users on that website, so I'd assume right out of the box that he's a faker. Second, if he's trying to finish early, he's already doing OK. In my previous life as an educator I found that students capable of graduating early were usually good self-starters and capable of accurately discerning the value of a great many things on their own. I wouldn't assume this student would be flipping burgers just because he might be looking at Mr. Schlafly's laughably poor materials. Conservapederast (talk) 17:54, 25 July 2009 (UTC)

Is there a way to activate the "capturebot" manually, that is, outside of the WIGO page?

I've found it pretty fast - like the one I did above. Saved the page, refreshed and it was there. If it's something you're worried might get teakayed quickly, use alt-prntscreen or the Firefox screengrab extension first just in case. --PsyGremlinWhut? 17:50, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Ken on aSK and CP[edit]

After  K e n  D o l l  eliminated the claim that Nils Heribert Nilsson was director of the Swedish Botanical Institute on CP, he elaborates his line of reasoning at aSK:

I did some digging on the internet and I saw what a person apparently fluent in Swedish said about this issue so I have temporarily or perhaps permanently removed the Swedish Botanical Institute statement. I would also be interested in finding out if Nils Heribert-Nilsson was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences as a Swedish speaking person has apparently asserted. I do have contacts overseas and perhaps I will be able to clarify the biography of Nils Heribert-Nilsson further. I certainly believe in cognitive flexibility and I believe pride is a sin, so unlike many evolutionists, I have no problem fixing errors when I make them as far as errant or probably errant statements. :) Ruylopez 18:56, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

As I said in my answer, all he did was to read the new article on wikipedia... But now he tries to avoid further discussion and is opting out for moral reasons:

I just found out about the RW member perhaps making a mean spirited and tasteless remark about being glad Dean's wife died on his userpage and I have seen other mean spirited and tasteless behavior as well by RW members. I also don't think RW is doing enough to police its members and offers tepid responses or no responses to these inappropriate actions of its members. I am no longer interested in having any dialogue with RW members and I won't be reading any CP WIGO posts at RW. Feel free to enjoy your mobocracy, but I am not interested in your activities. Ruylopez 19:38, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

I just found out? That sounds fishy! Hasn't he complained over this earlier? larronsicut fur in nocte 20:00, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

Ken's a dishonest little shit and always has been. He's doing this now because he's cornered on the Nilssen thing and wants to get out of it. So he uses some trumped-up crap from TK (was the guy who said he was glad about Dean's wife actually from here?) as an excuse. Saves him from having to deal with any questions about his big stack o' lies. --Kels (talk) 20:08, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Ken's obviously not following what's happening in the ZDG. But then all the others ignore his posts anyway. As for the sick post about Dean's wife then it has not been established who the tosser is. Certainly nobody at RW has admitted to being the poster and if they did then I can imagine a wave of revulsion from most other editors. The problem is that mud sticks almost as much as the truth that Terry Koeckritz is a plagiarist and a liar. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 20:11, 26 July 2009 (UTC)
Ken better hope the atheists are right, or he'll have some 'splainin' to do on Judgement Day:

Wait, if the religion promised people to spend the eternity in Heaven and said person is religious, shouldn't we be glad that said person will be spending time in Heaven when he/she died (assuming if you don't die you can't spend time in Heaven, except one of those blessed figures that bodily ascend to heaven)? Or is Ken trying to discourage people from becoming religious? I am confused. K61824Monitoring virgin birth experiment 00:59, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Now I am, too. What did you just say? ħumanUser talk:Human 03:24, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Breaking down into a derivation (substitute "Religion" with the actual religion of Ken and Dean, Presumably sufficiently similar):
  1. Assumption: Religion asserts that going to heaven after death is a good thing
  2. Assumption: Religion asserts that if one belongs to their religion, he/she goes to heaven after death
  3. Observation: Dean's wife died (Assumption: we don't have sufficient information on causes of death, so we assume it is within the rules).
  4. Conclusion from 2 and 3: Religion asserts that Dean's wife goes to heaven.
  5. Conclusion from 1 and 4: Death of Dean's wife is implicitly a good thing (from Dean's wife's own perspective)
  6. Inference: We should congratulate Dean for his wife being in heaven (from their view point?)
  7. Ken somehow believes the act of us being happy for Dean's wife in heaven is a bad thing.
  8. Conclusion: Ken somehow believes the chain of logic from 1-6 is invalid somewhere, but he doesn't seem to want to spend time pointing out what exactly is wrong.
Hope that helps (should this chain of logic go into one of the articles?). K61824What is going on? 04:14, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
When I was about 11 or 12 I pointed out to a priest that everyone should be happy at funerals as that person is now in heaven. He told me that I had wisdom beyond my years. Ergo, ken is more immature now then I was at 12. - π 04:20, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Perhaps someone should ask at aSK or CP about it (and subsequently question Ken's faith). I suppose by Ken's inability to grasp this logic, he is not qualified to write from a Christian point of view (is this ad hominem?). K61824[Talk needed] 04:33, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for explaining, K/T. Still, I think making the argument you make using a specific person that someone who loved them just lost makes me a little uncomfortable. "She's in a better place now" is usually how it's said, by means of comforting, not mocking in a painful time. ħumanUser talk:Human 05:00, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
I truly stand by my statement (that we should be happy that Dean's wife is in heaven); afterall it is not me who come up with all those concepts of Heaven. If they mean something else they have to rephrase it to correctly reflect the view. Moreover, I am in no means trying to have a bad attitiude towards Dean or his wife. If their beliefs dictate that they are in a better place, wouldn't it be customary to congratulate them? Maybe customs are to be changed (I perhaps value consistency in thought above a lot of other things) or they have to align their beliefs coherently if that's not the case. It's mostly Ken's attitude toward this that I have a problem with, claiming to be Christian while the beliefs aren't even properly aligned. K61824ZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 05:09, 27 July 2009 (UTC)
OK, I see. While it's certainly "true" in a sense that the bereaved might be consoled by knowing their loved one is finally at their Father's side, there is the other issue that here in this mortal coil, the bereaved misses their lost loved one, and has to learn how to live a life with them gone, which despite the consolation that they are "in a better place now", can still be painful and miserable in its own right. I do hope, for instance, that some of Dean's sense of loss is mitigated by his beliefs. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:57, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

No. I've figured it out. He's using edit comments as shout-outs on unrelated topics. (TK: Why don't you just log in here under your Nighttrain account, and tell us directly? Or create the "gentleman" pages that Ken is so successful with?) He has added a couple more of these shout-outs, as comments on completely trivial edits—one of them was just a change in border color on a box.

Putting them together, the message appears to be

  • 404 blocked, cannot reply, typical of liberals only wanting their side heard, but invite conservatives to respond just to make themselves look fair. drown in your own mud.
  • If Ace really wanted to know, he would AIM me. But he knows I am 404 blocked. Deceit: thy name is liberal or Ace, either way, bad music.
  • Ace, since you aren't blocked, simply use the contact info top of this page. Of course I think you are all show, no go...but always room for me to be wrong.
  • as usual TMT is wrong, rather just throwing out red herrings
  • people like you" Hmmm....I think ignorant people said that about Blacks, still do...nice to see bigotry and ignorance dont discriminate on the basis of left or right! Do go on!
  • clear evidence" from T? Added by T, as if TMT never lies? He has become a pide-piper, lol satisfies his ego, I am sure.

Greatest Conservative... Movies???[edit]

I don't know how many of you have seen this - it's probably old news anyway - but I just stumbled along the Greatest Conservative Movies. Just... wow. The first Spider-Man (2002) in which apparently Peter Parker chooses abstinence in the end, Star Wars series (1977-2005) - simple truths about the triumph of good over evil, and if you can believe the last one...

World Treasures[edit]

putting blatant copyright violations aside, can anyone tell me what exactly are the criteria for being a "World Treasure"? (listed hereimg and hereimg) Stuff I found odd:

  • Entire province and cities: How do we distinguish that from randomly adding nice pictures from arbitrary geographical locations?
  • "Jungle region" of Venezuela -- So jungle regions elsewhere aren't? And why is the jungle consists of 2 birds?
  • Only Mount Everest for the Himalayas, but the entire Andes?
  • What exactly is the "Framed medallion" of Turkey, as in Anyone find this thing sufficiently notable to the general public?
  • The talk pageimg seems to be refraining from saying that there is one official list. So what kind of lists do they employ?

Perhaps TK will help us in sorting things out by deleting thsoe pages, but who knows. ThiehZOYG I edit like Kenservative! 22:58, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Well he does live with his mum.

Without wishing to be too stalkerish or indiscrete (private IM), he just lives with his mum. His father died a couple of years ago.

Ken's on the ball, again[edit]

Not a WIGO but a facepalm moment with this edit by our favourite OCD.

Polynesium[edit]

Not WIGO-worthy (the voters have been awfully fussy of late), but we note with sadness the passing (well, speedy template) of our favorite elementimg, Polynesiumimg. (Cue the hula dancers and the Tiki bar.)

Now it seems that TK has recently enlisted (apparently in secret email, that's how he operates) ChrisZ to check the various star articles for parody. Those articles having been written by BMcP, a recently-joined astronomy expert. TK has been on BMcP's case before, apparently over a link to a 90-year-old magazine article, and ChrisZ has been on BMcP's case about the exact name of a star.

So you take ChrisZ as your expert in your battle against parody? Let's see. The Polynesium article was created by user GeorginaD. You blocked her. She had made only 6 edits. You didn't bother to check them? You were more interested in running checkuser than in the veracity of CP? You didn't look at Polynesium, wonder why a new element was being added in 2009, and look it up in a periodic table? You didn't notice the symbol Po, which is Polonium? Or the atomic number 72, which is Hafnium?

ChrisZ: You edited that article! From the edit comment, you seem to know your way around the chemistry and element categories. You didn't look at the elements category, and notice that it already has at least stubs for virtually all of them? You didn't think it peculiar that a new one was being added in 2009? You didn't look at the symbol or the atomic number?

TK: So you take ChrisZ as your expert in the battle against parody? That is, when you're not taking Ed "attention span and scientific/mathematical erudition of a cockroach" Poor as your expert? Why did you block the person who reverted the obvious parody to an element the cube root of whose atomic number contains the digits 4142257351? Or the obvious parody to the element the cube root of whose atomic number contains the digits 3962147226? Or the many other instances of parody, some fixed by people you have since blocked, and some still extant, in science and math articles that don't involve atomic numbers? Why is running checkuser, and banhammering people, more important to you than letting really knowledgeable people help you?

Yes, those are all rhetorical questions. The answer is clear: "because TK is an ass". Gauss (talk) 17:26, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

RobS, what are you on about? Firstly, given what you just said it's hard to believe that you actually think that "Hitler liked puppies, so did Obama, therefore Obama is a Nazi" is a good argument. So I'm guessing your using it in a "dirty liberals said it about Bush, so therefore we can say it about Obama" kind of way. Secondly, whether the Bush family made millions by cooperating with a regime bent on and capable of conquest with a genocidal agenda is different from whether KMart will made a buck out of some idiot with all the influence of a smoked haddock (and that's an influence on the contents of my stomach). Thirdly, saying that making money from such a regime is morally heinous is different from saying that making money from that regime means you subscribe to their political ideology. But I digress. Both your arguments are stupid and wrong. Bil08 (talk) 22:19, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Well, this began with a search of PETA's site for Michelle Obama's pledge to be "furr free," and I accidentally came across what appears t o be a personal pledge Obama delivered to the head of PETA. Seems curious enough, with two wars, the global economic meltdown, etc. etc., that both Michelle * Barack would have time to indulge the head of PETA. Then, in reading Obama's comment, "how we treat our animals reflects how we treat each other," that simply did not quite stand up to scrutiny because it is well known that Himmler spoke of being kind to animals. So particularly how Obama would have time with two wars, global economic meltdown, etc. etc., for a personal pledge to the head of PETA seemed curious. And it also appears from Obama's statement that doesn't have clue what he is talking about.
It appears in WP's quest to salvage its credibility & expertise they began with the Animal Rights article. RobS (talk) 22:27, 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Sure, because he certainly wouldn't have time to give a quote about animal rights with all this chaos. It must have taken all of an hour or so to "indulge the head of PETA", I'm surprised the unemployment rate didn't rise to 15% and our troops didn't lose the war in that time. As for his quote not standing up to scrutiny, how a person treats animals isn't a bad way to judge how they treat others.--PitchBlackMind (talk) 22:42, 23 July 2009 (UTC)

Maybe the Obama's are on to something. If Obama were to adopt Hitler's anti-vivisection policy and require the troops in Iraq & Afghanistan to eat only vegetables, that could reduce Defense spending and possibly lower the deficit. This probably wouldn't work unless Agricultural subsidies likewise were eliminated. Foodstamps could be restricted to only agricultural products, and that would be in keeping with Michelle's "fur free" pledge to reduce senseless animal slaughter. But the whole idea probably still needs more wathcing and research. RobS (talk) 01:27, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Well, there you have it. Proof positive that no matter what Obama does, no matter how innocuous it is, there's no way he'll catch a break from the paranoid ideologues in the "Conservative" movement. Seriously, the man effectively said "be nice to puppies and other critters", and this is cause for "more wathcing (sic) and research"? Truly incredible. --Kels (talk) 01:32, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Kels my friend, you still miss the point. He said "how we treat our animals reflects how we treat each other." Obama evidentally never heard of Heinrich Himmler. That's freightning. RobS (talk) 01:39, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Rob, seriously. He wasn't stating an immutable law of nature. Humans can, indeed, defy such expectations at times. Himmler was one of those cases. It takes a special sort of paranoid ideologue, prepared to criticize Obama for what he eats for lunch (oh wait, even some ridiculous shit like that happened, didn't it?) to automatically call Himmler to mind in response to a "be nice to animals" comment. --Kels (talk) 01:50, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

<-- Not to sound preachie, but this is exactly where Judeo-Christian beleivers have it over godless rational athiests. Psalm 8:4-6 says, "What is man, that thou art mindful... Thou hast put everything in subjection under his feet... [3] So the natural order of things is thus:

God
man
animal

Once you remove God out of the picture the order becomes:

man = animal

Hence if you can kill an animal, you can kill a man. There is no final judgement. This is precisely Nazi propaganda aimed at young people to indoctrinate them into a killing system and ease their consciences and moral qualms they may have harbored from a religious upbringing. You guys should be a little less confrontational sometimes and see CP may be on the same page with some of your objectives. RobS (talk) 01:57, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Rob, that's a lie and you know it. Removing the Big Sky Daddy does not say killing men is just fine. You should know better than that, although if you're willing to call Obama a Nazi for saying not to kick puppies, you're obviously not smart enough to. --Kels (talk) 02:00, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh really? So there is no final judgement, one can kill at will, and God won't send them to hell cause he doesn't exist and there is no one to answer to. So what are we left with, Marx who thought people would willingly become slaves and eat garbage in the gulag out of a sense of civic duty? Good luck with that one.

Psst... Rob.... Stop gettting your talking points from whatever radio signals are being beams from your ass to your head. Marx wrote nothing about Gulags. I don't know if you know this, but Karl Marx died in 1883 (no really, look it up). The Russian Revolution and the first Communist State didn't even begin until 1917.... Nice try though my friend. While I'm here, you seem to think that all morality comes soley from God and the bible.... Maybe you should look into the writings of Kant and the categorical imperative.... It's very good and has nothing to do with faith or religion in any way..... Have a nice night. SirChuckBA product of Affirmative Action 07:30, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Eh, Immanuel Kant was a real pissant who was very rarely stable... But as for RobS's so called point, he goes from claiming that Obama wanting to defend animals makes him a Nazi, than argues that there's some grand design to indoctrinate young people into thinking killing is okay. That's not even internally consistent. This just depicts how intellectually bankrupt the American conservative movement has become. They have reached the point where "lets treat animals nicely" is considered Nazi indoctrination. Wow. Is there any-fucking-thing B. Hussein!!!!!11one!!ZOMG Hes a Socialist Atheist Muslim!!!!! Obama could do that you would not attack him for? Anything at all? I swear to God in his high heaven, if Barack Obama today walked into the White House press room, held an impromptu news conference, and declared that he had a personal awakening and was going to devote the rest of his Presidency to seeking a Constitutional amendment banning all abortion, the American right would instantly become pro-choice. MDB (talk) 11:19, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Coming late to this discussion... RobS, I think it's possible to feel that a certain level of animal cruelty is unacceptable without going all the way down the vegan, animals-are-people-too line of thought. For example, we have laws for those who breed dogs that talk about the minimum cage size, that the dogs must have access to food and water, that their cages must be kept clean, and so on. Many women won't wear fur because they don't see the sense in killing an animal for fashion purposes, yet they'll still eat chicken or beef. Also, it always astounds me to hear the argument that, without religion threatening them with consequences, people will do bad things. The atheists I know are morally good people because it's the right thing to do, and their heart leads them in that direction, *even* when no one's looking. Do religious people not have that inner moral compass? --Too tired to log in (talk) 12:58, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Maybe they don't wear fur because they fear being a victim of animal rights terrorists. And the commie connection of animal rights terrorists is also being brought into focus. [4] RobS (talk) 19:24, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Maybe they don't wear fur because they fear being a victim of animal rights terrorists. Nope. I suppose there have been a few incidents of animal rights people assaulting fur-wearing women, but I haven't heard of one in ages, and even back then it was pretty darn rare. But those few incidents got people thinking, and lots of people decided that they'd prefer not to kill animals just so they could be fashionable. So now real fur is out of style, and faux fur is in. Fur is also darned expensive, and hard to care for, so it's not hard to decide to go without. Michelle is making a quite sensible choice to forgo fur. I think most folks are pretty sensible, and feel that animals should be reasonably well cared for, without going overboard. You've really only got to watch a few episodes of "Animal Cops" or "Pet Rescue" to be glad there are SPCA-type organizations out there, and to see how important the laws against animal cruelty are. (FWIW, I read once that there were laws against animal cruelty before there were laws against child abuse. Interesting, huh?) Whether or not some extreme animal rights activists are communists really doesn't make a difference when the average woman is deciding how she feels about animal cruelty. The arguments for the less extreme stuff work pretty well on their own. --Too tired to log in (talk) 21:34, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
You know what's really cool? If you take every instance of Rob saying "commie" or "red" or something similar, and replace it with "boogeyman", it makes the exact same amount of sense! --Kels (talk) 23:53, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Also coming late to the discussion, I second Too Tired. Robby boy, it is possible to be an atheist and a good human being. Like 2tired said, there is such a thing as an inner sense of morality even if a God is absent from ones life. As for your Obama-Hitler comparison... excuse my English, but it's pretty fucking pathetic. The same logic as saying you can use the same server for a PS3 and an Xbox 360 - the wishful dreams of a madman. SJ Debaser 13:31, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Obviously, the christian god provides that inner moral compass you feel. — Signed, by: Neveruse513 / Talk / Block 14:05, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I'm having a flashback to when Philip was pulling the same dishonest stunt of claiming that fear of God's punishment is the only thing standing in the way of a global orgy of rape, torture and murder, which atheism will inevitably lead to (I'm lookin' at you, PZ Myers!). Basically I mentioned the idea that religion didn't come first, but that morality is a natural part of the formation of social structures and goes right back to the very first co-operation between humans. Societies and cultures develop morals based on these basic building blocks, and society thrives. Then religion comes along, adopts the morals that everyone is following already and takes credit for making it up in the first place. Inherently dishonest, I know, but that's how it goes. However, complex societies have a way of getting away from its roots, especially when those roots are actively denied (i.e., we're better than animals!). So you get cases where leaders with power see themselves as so separate that they're above even basic requirements of humanity, something that seems to come from a religious template (god-emperor, Pope is infallible, etc.) and you get dictators, holocausts and the like. But that doesn't invalidate anything but their own mistakes. So to recap, morality is there naturally, religion lies and claims it made up morality when all it did is co-opt it, and the horrors of Stalin, Hitler, etc. are no more an inevitable by-product of disbelief than growing wings is. --Kels (talk) 14:32, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Kels: "goes back to the very first co-operation between humans" - I think you understate here. While AFAIK humans do have a particularly good ability to co-operate which has proven to be very important, there are plenty of other animals that have been able to live and work together without slaughtering each other at the first opportunity. Anyway, this debate always frustrates me as a philosophy fan because it denies the existence of secular ethics (Immanuel who? Ariswhatle?) while ignoring the Euphythro, a minor Platonic dialogue that decisively refuted "God as a source of morality" a good 2500 years ago (and there's not that much in philosophy that anyone's kept decisively refuted for more than a hundred years or so.) Bil08 (talk) 16:32, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Oh yeah, loads of animals do it and there's recent evidence that there is some form of actual moral code among animals. But we are actually talking human morality here so it seemed simpler just to focus on the human version. No sense cluttering it up too much when all we're dealing with is Rob, who probably won't understand much of it anyway. --Kels (talk) 16:35, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
I had now idea this really was such a deeply emotional subject among some leftists. Let's return to PETA's question then, Does Obama bring hope to animals? Would the Pet Psychic be able let us know? This isn't being fecesious, it's a serious question that mandates serious investigation and serious explanations. Even President Obama himself evidentally felt so in responding to PETA's questions. RobS (talk) 19:33, 24 July 2009 (UTC)
Does Obama bring hope to animals? Who knows? What kind of hope are you thinking of? What kinds of extremes do you fear? The guy was campaigning, and PETA is on the left. Of course he wanted their vote. Did he promise anything specific? Anything you feel is going too far? Is there a link somewhere to his remarks, so we can see what he said? --Too tired to log in (talk) 21:34, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

Yes it seems to me that NZ has a very representative political system that caters for viewpoints across the whole spectrum from the loony left to the loony right. To govern requires some ability to find common ground with all. Hence we get some of the best features of all political idealogies. DamoHi 09:48, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Kendoll's latest idiocy[edit]

I was going to WiGO this, but I thought I'd rant here instead. So Kendoll (in his sub-literate style that always makes his writing easy to spot) thinks that Ben Bernanke losing money in the stock market last year is somehow relevant and indicative of his competence. Nevermind he was a Bush appointee; nevermind that when the markets drop some 40% everone loses money and he was lucky it was only 29%. Imagine what would happen if it had suddenly been revealed that he had made a few million in such investments? I know I'd be clamoring for an investigation into whether he used insider knowledge or influence to game the system, and I'm sure I wouldn't be alone. The fact that this and everything else he writes appears as if it were written by a 10 year old (to say nothing of his logic) has basically convinced me that Ken is at least slightly mentally retarded. That at times makes me feel a bit bad about mocking him like this, but then the stupidity is just so painful. DickTurpis (talk) 18:11, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

When I saw that I too thought 'I wonder what CP would have said if he had made money?'. If you're a Democrat, you're damned if you do and damned if you don't. EddyP (talk) 18:48, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
I also like how Ken encourages investment in gold. Yeah, Ken, hoarding gold is a sure way to get the economy moving again. And nothing like buying a commodity when it's at its high, or is the idea of "buy low, sell high" another liberal deceit? Plus his "source" is practically one of those Cash4gold sites. DickTurpis (talk) 14:32, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
Ken probably invests in WoW gold. --Kels (talk) 20:47, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
Buying gold may not be a way to kick-start the economy but it may well be a way to protect your own savings. And gold is nowhere near its high - on an inflation adjusted basis it would have to get to $2700/oz to match the 1980 peak. With government debt-levels at record highs there will inevitably be inflation which will propel the price of gold higher from it's current level. Having forseen the financial problems that were building many years ago up I bought gold-related assets in 2003 when the price was $325 and have just about tripled my investment. I fully expect that to happen again over the next five years. You may mock "the barbarous relic" but ultimately gold has proved it's worth over the fiat currencies which governments are only too eager to debase. If there's one thing that I cannot forgive Gordon Brown for it's selling of UK gold reserves when the price was at a low.

SES Application[edit]

I recall someone (Norseman I think) saying that it looked as if the SES application failed (if it had passed, Andy would have said something), but that they would phone up the administration just to be sure. Did anything ever come of that? EddyP (talk) 18:37, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Suggestion: sock up and ask to see if your sock get banned. If nothing comes of that then you'll get banned for that comment. But then account creation is pretty much off these days. K61824[Talk needed] 18:40, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
The IPs of myself and roughly 200,000 surrounding people have been cast out from CP, never to edit there again, and I always found proxies to be annyoing to use. Socking up is difficult. Also, now that TK can see this conversation, anyone asking about the SES Application will be blocked anyway for being my sock, regardless of the thruth. EddyP (talk) 18:46, 30 July 2009 (UTC)
The block by TK will get more lulz (and more embarassing for Andy -- driving away potential customers) if Andy comes up with something for the SES, so I would suppose TK will at least wait to see if Andy has something to say. But then again, we are talking about TK, whose action does not necessarily make sense. K61824"6+18=24" 19:26, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Hmm[edit]

Well, I shouldn't be surprised. Apparently they thought I was writing on behalf of Andy, and when I clarified that I was not they quickly responded that in the interest of applicant privacy no details about an application status are shared with anyone but the applicant. That's fair enough, but I wrote back asking for a simple confirmation that it was approved or declined, with no details or scoring required. The response was that if an applicant is not on the 2009-10 list, then they were not approved.

So, it's pretty safe to say that the application was rejected, but we'll never get to see the scoring or comments behind that rejection.

(undent)

I just re-read the Talk page for the draft SES application I had linked to above, and noticed that it ended with Andy thanking folks for their help, and commenting that while he'd like to have posted the final version, concerns about "liberal vandalism" prevent him from doing so. Okay, Andy, here's a simple challenge. Post a copy of your final submission with nothing removed but personal data like addresses and phone numbers, and post the complete response, scores and feedback from the SES with nothing but the personally-identifying information removed as well. Protect the page so that no one but a bureaucrat can alter them, and if people try to quote-mine it you have the original to stand behind for all to see. You're free to comment on any perceived liberal bias or unfairness as long as your comments are made distinct from the application & response themselves. In case you think this is simple arrogance, here's why you have a moral obligation to do so:

  • You have no problem posting the homework and exam responses of your students, most of whom are probably minors, and allowing the entire wired world to see when they stumble in their answers, and the feedback & grades they got. You are a hypocrite if you do not do the same for your own academic submission.
  • You were willing to have the taxpayers of NJ support sending students to Conservapedia. As a NJ resident and taxpayer from South Brunswick, I am asking you to be public in why you believe you were qualified for this, and what the taxpayer-funded review board thought of those qualifications.
  • You continuously attack the quality of public-school education and the superiority of what you offer through Conservapedia. Post the scoring and comments of why your application was rejected, and tell us why the educational review board was wrong for doing so.
  • If "showing the raw data" was expected of Lenski, it's fair to expect it from you.

If you think I'm a coward hiding behind a screen name, Mr. Schlafly, you're wrong. Provide me with a way of emailing you directly through the mail feature on this site, and I'll provide you with my phone number. --SpinyNorman (talk) 21:37, 30 July 2009 (UTC)

Geo.plrd was the Judas who let TK get his foot back in the door and covered up his plagiarism. TK owes him big time. Also although he doesn't edit much he is still involved in the latest incarnation of the SDG. Major Tommy is a veritable ghost but because of his CreationWiki (?) credentials (he often gives Andy advice on technical issues) he stays a sysop despite his on-site inactivity. Whether Crock o'shite stays probably depends how he handles the loss of his wife. He may even rededicate himself to scouring wingnut blogs for anti-liberal stories. As for JAllen I believe she was taking time-out to concentrate on her career but she's one of Andy's favorites - remember RobS was absent for quite a while but mamaged to hold onto all his rights. Freedom777 would seem a likely candidate for removal as he has done nothing since the ID article. Although Ken might press to keep him as his backup access point in case TK turns against him.

Tebow WIGO[edit]

The current WIGO re CP's stub on Tim Tebow derides Andy for his claim that being homeschooled is relevant to someone's skills in throwing and catching a ball. Except, A) Andy doesn't make that claim, he just adds it as a piece of trivia (one that's certainly of interest to CP's theoretical audience), B) There's nothing wrong with adding interesting background facts to a bio article, C) Wikipedia also mentions Tebow's homeschool background (and more extensively), D) Homeschooling could be relevant to someone's sporting abilities (more time/focus for individual coaching), unless one ascribes to the notion that athletic skills are completely god-given, and E) Tebow's homeschooling is most definitely relevant to his bio, tho' WP does a much better job re this than CP (which is a bit ironic, doncha think?).--WJThomas (talk) 09:31, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Good points. I didn't think it through that far, though you could hardly call that piece of shit a bio article. Tebow's article consists of homskollar/Christian missionary/college football star.

Certainly Andy will try to keep up the fantasy of administrating a wiki for the duration of his new course on economics. But even his block-log hints in another direction: For the last seven months there are virtually no short blocks of editors - formerly a sure sign of lively discussions - but almost exclusively blocks of five years and longer.

Out of interest LArron, when will the number of blocked IP address pass the number of pageviews at the current rate of a 100 day trend? - π 13:35, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
Also why do all the graphs have DiEb on them? - π 13:36, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
IP blocks over time
I won't make any predictions at the moment: over the last year, they were up to 4,000,000/month, but at the moment it's slower than 1,000,000/month: TK has last momentum...
DiEb was my moniker at CP, for RW I translated the German word Dieb to the French larron...

A million a month would mean they are slower than the pageviews without our bumping, so never. Sorry I got you banned when I ran around signing as Jinx and calling people mouth breathers. - π 13:58, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
It was meant to happen. Yes, I was annoyed at first, but foremost by the unbounded stupidity Ed Poor was able to display.. larronsicut fur in nocte 14:01, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
At least CP and WP have pretty and regular graphs; ours is all over the place. Time drug Hoover! 21:09, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
A quick count of the top 30 blockers reveals that at least 13 of them are now perma-blocked themselves! Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 23:46, 31 July 2009 (UTC)


Yay! I am the fifth most active blocker on RationalWiki. ĴάΛäšςǍ₰ In Soviet Russia, the rotted glass orb sinks YOU! 23:50, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
Pibot is the largest now. Looking over at RationalWiki:Active users and Conservapedia:Active users, I realised we have more very-active editors and above than Conservapedia has semi-active or above. Are we now official a larger site? - π 01:18, 2 August 2009 (UTC)

Death of WP[edit]

I recall Andy saying some time ago that Wikipedia as we know it will not exist before long, and Conservapedia will have largely taken its place. I think he said "within a year" well over a year ago. Anyway feel like going back and trying to dig up some of these statements so we can have a good laugh about them now? Maybe we can get some statistics to show just how untrue Assfly's predictions have been. I think even Ed "User 188" Poor said similar things. I'll see if I can find a few examples. DickTurpis (talk) 14:01, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Conservapedia:timeline might be a good place to start looking, it might be there. Might not be, though, since it wouldn't have been an "event"... ħumanUser talk:Human 17:57, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
His "Conservapedia's Law" essay comes to mind, but that's pretty recent. I'm sure it's not the first or last time. ~ Kupochama[1][2] 19:05, 31 July 2009 (UTC)
While looking for this statement, I found gems like "As Conservapedia exposed Wikipedia's liberal bias, Wikipedia began to decline despite a record of six years of growth." and the classic "Wikipedia is six times more liberal than the American public" line... *idly keeps looking* --Sid (talk) 01:53, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm strting to think everyt day is backwards day at CP. Someone should sock up and ask Andy or TK about this theory. Remember, if they say no, then the answer is yes. And if they say yes...then that would create a paradox that would cause the users head to explode and/or the end of the universe--Tabris (talk) 02:25, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Here's a related prediction at least:

Please summarize what you think is so insightful about this. I do understand Wikipedia, but not from listening to Jimmy Wales. Understand Wikipedia by watching how it prefers the for-profit Wikia, by how it drives away the smarter editors and administrators, by how it allows bullying and mobocracy, by how it features porn, and by how it is dependent on search engines for 70% of its traffic (i.e., only minority of Wikipedia users go there looking for info). I predict that in a mere 12 months Wikipedia will not even look like it does today.--Aschlafly 14:59, 6 May 2007 (EDT)

Should be fun (read: "a quick ticket into banhammer country") to ask Andy if Wikipedia really doesn't look like it did two years ago... --Sid (talk) 02:58, 1 August 2009 (UTC)

Nice find. Andy's such a twit. And all because his two insane edits were reverted... ħumanUser talk:Human 05:54, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure Andy at some point said that CP would overtake WP in the near future, and I'd love to see him confronted with those words. Andy's all happy that CP finally got 100 million pageviews, whereas by some calculations, WP gets several times that every day (presumably without clickbots). "This site is growing rapidly!" DickTurpis (talk) 14:05, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
As I recall, Andy put something on main page right about how CP would overtake WP within five years, but it was some time ago. Maybe a year, I dunno. It is ironic, given that most articles that aren't parody, blog posts by the admins (Liberal X, EvolAtheSexuality, etc.), or outright copies from glossaries, are basically reworded cut/pastes from WP in the first place. --Kels (talk) 15:10, 1 August 2009 (UTC)
