Panto and Conservapedia[edit]

Conservapedia is seemingly agin cross dressing.

The article mentions cross dressing in pantomime.

Anyone care to do 'Conservapedia - the Panto' (possibly involving kilts, or tights). Jackiespeel (talk) 16:49, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

wouldn't a Panto in tights lead to a Codpiece size war ? that would not be a pretty sight :( The male lead is of course played by a woman, so what woman would play Andy ? or would the lead be TK or maybe Uncle ED ? I vote for Paris Hilton or maybe Miley Cyrus. Hamster (talk) 17:22, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Conservapedia, the panto, would suffer badly from the lack of stock characters (oh no it wouldn't). Who's the dame for a start? Bob Soles (talk) 17:32, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Phylis Schlafly? TKEtoolshedFrag Out! 17:33, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
played of course by Alan Alda or perhaps Kirk Cameron, a gold lame dress, strapless of course with a small tiara blinking Conservapedia. Hamster (talk) 17:45, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Or the woman from Fight Club who says crazy yet insightful quotables? TKEtoolshedFrag Out! 17:50, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
No! Speak not her name, or she will appear! Either way, Ken would have to play Bottom. --PsygremlinSermā! 17:55, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Are there any female contributors on CP (after Kate Sorenson facted her way right out of there!) to play the lead? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 18:10, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Only little Phy and Taj (if she's still around). As far as I know HSMom, Bethany (& sister) and Justine have all seen the light and left CP as Andy likes it - white and male. --PsygremlinTal! 18:19, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
From the lack of female contributors, how does one infer that the Wiki lacks editors who have darker skin? And how does it possibly infer that Mr. Schlafly likes it white? Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 19:36, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
I believe that Mr Schlalalfly likes his men like his coffee... DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 19:46, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Black and bitter, or ground up and in the freezer? Unemployed philosopher (talk) 20:53, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

(UI)Before you guys all said it I kinda realized the same thing... other than homskollars doing homework and tests, CP seems to have become an exclusively male province. ħumanUser talk:Human 21:09, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

That's not exactly a surprise, given the rampant misogyny. Tetronian you're clueless 22:37, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
doesnt ED talk of Sailor Moon ? does that make him the token pre-pubescent girl ?
Again, a moonie in anime-terms is a fan of Sailor Moon. You guys can make jokes about which group he is in--Thanatos (talk) 04:31, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

@Human: It's called "the best of the public." Buh-dum-pshhh.-- Antifly Merged with Infinity 23:26, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

It's not that CP is an exclusively male province but that it is a middle to old-aged, white, misogynistic, misanthropic, reactionary, male province. And while you guys fantasize about Conservapedia - The Panto all we are really left with is Conservapedia - The Pants. E.J.Thribb 23:47, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Please to choose your divisive buzzwords more carefully. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 23:56, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Do we have anyone watching the CBP?[edit]

Is there anything happening besides Ecclesiastes to watch? --Opcn (talk) 19:54, 20 January 2010 (UTC)

Mr. Schlafly has been trying to insert conservative buzzwords into the Gospels again. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 19:55, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Seems like the pace has slowed a lot. Andy does the main editing on the New Testament Gospels, while TerryH is working on the Old Testament at a crawl. My take on the CBP is that Andy's real interest is in making sure he's the only one interpreting what Jesus says in the four main Gospels - outside of that he's showing about as much interest as he does for any project he starts once the first few weeks have passed, i.e. none.
I wish he would write a book, that would be great. --Opcn (talk) 20:55, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
I would jump at the opportunity of doing a side-by-side on that. Tetronian you're clueless 22:39, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
Andy's book already exists (talk) 22:41, 20 January 2010 (UTC)
The pdf file see pages 25 to 39. Muchly good info in the first two dozen pages...outstrips CP by a mile, (1.2K). 22:54, 20 January 2010 (UTC) CЯacke®
Anyone notice Ecclesiastes 5:3img? --Opcn (talk) 02:20, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Looks a little too obvious, I'm afraid. The only person who could get away with such a blatant case of applied SchlaflySpeak would be... Andy. Unfortunately, it looks like ChrisY has answered the shout-out for help with this page, and he's cleaning up the crap removing the laughs again. --04:27, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
That guy is clearly a poser. I edit the CBP, but I do it from the Greek so my edits are sparse. It takes like half an hour to do a few verses well. A contrived opportunity to practice Greek is the only reason I do it. I have no idea why I'm admitting this. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 06:34, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

The OT will never be done by anyone who isn't a poser, if you can read ancient Hebrew then you have a real skill, why use it on the CBP? ECC is easily the best book of the bible, Solomon was probably a little manic depressive (or just depressive). Also if you look at the basically schlafly article about word analysis in the bible it seems to indicate that the bible needs moar schlafly! --Opcn (talk) 09:46, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I was going to point out his edits to Eccles as an example of how to do the CBP right, but what's the difference really - his "translations" may be more poetic, scan better, and stay truer to the text than Andy's, but they're both still playing Bible Telephone. Going over CBP edits with the handy Parallel Bible has just given me a new appreciation for how careful and exact the KJV translators were. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 12:45, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I try to continue the general effort...I managed to get some pretty big stuff approved. Alas, I can't talk about it, so you'll have to see for yourself. --Ireon (talk) 16:35, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Karajou is taking a long time...[edit]

creating his Massachusetts junior senator 'toon isn't he. Internetmoniker (talk) 13:03, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

True art takes time, and is worth the waiting. Which doesn't explain why Karajou's latest is delayed. MDB (talk) 13:09, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I didn't really follow recent elections, so I'm hoping he'll go with something absolutely random again. Atheism in public schools maybe? --Sid (talk) 13:22, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
He was likely scribbling something about the Dems pushing through healthcare, and had to give up when it turned out they weren't going to do that. MaxAlex Swimming pool 13:43, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Darwin's a God-bashing idiot, part II. Was it worth the wait? --Irrational Atheist (talk) 20:53, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
At least he confesses his problem in the first sentence. Vulpius (talk) 22:32, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
That's... the first Karajou cartoon that's not even worth making fun of. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 00:26, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh dear[edit]

I wonder if Andy's ever seen his own Victor Jara article. It sure makes his hero, Pinochet, look bad. I know Andy doesn't read this, but maybe you could point out a whitewash is needed here, TK. Liberal claptrap in Conservapedia? Surely it cannot stand! Oh, and see if you can get Andy to use the term "liberal claptrap" in his edit summary. Thanks. DickTurpis (talk) 15:06, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

About to get banned on CP, a worthy cause[edit]

Ok, I'm about to get banned on CP again, with my best account yet, for trying to discuss something with both Assfly and TK. This concerns the recent despicable Supreme Court decision to make government by Monsanto, of Pfizer, and for Walmart (corporations no longer have limits on campaign contributions). As things continue you can see them hereimg. ScientificRigor (talk) 19:31, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

If you want to make it on CP, you have to use facts less and agree more. Nice post, though. Make sure to use the <capture></capture> tags for links to anything particularly good on CP. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 19:39, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I. for one, welcome our SAME OLD corporate overlords. --Gulik (talk) 20:10, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
And the banhammer has fallen. It feels strangely comforting knowing that I can get banned for pointing out Andy's grammar errors. Oh yeah, and for a fact here and there. ScientificRigor (talk) 20:29, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
JacobB is just trying to prove himself. I wonder who he is here... — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 20:33, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Irritating parodist, he should have let Andy try to answer, so we can laugh. Andy usually hands out short blocks, too. Broccoli (talk) 20:38, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Had you kept your actions to yourself, you'd have had a bit of a chance. Posting here was a sure fire way of getting whacked unless you're a sysop of course. I have just eaten Toast& stiltontalk 20:42, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

How can we ever get the old Spartacus joke going when someone asks who someone is, if no one participates? --Irrational Atheist (talk) 20:53, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Nice to know we can get anybody banned, at any time, by claiming here to be them. User:FineCheesesUser talk:FineCheeses 21:03, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

I forget who did it, but someone got TK to ban his own IP...or conservapedia's IP...or something hilarious. Taking responsibility for a random CP users actions is great fun. Let's you know who's watching. Let's them know their your bitch. Jacob, step your game up. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 21:07, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Someone got TK to ban CP's actual IP, and I got TK to ban the Eagle Forum's IP. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 21:12, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I never blocked my own IP, that I can remember, and since you don't have check user here, I doubt anyone knows it, and since I could unblock myself, doing that would do what? As for the Eagle Forum, do you honestly believe their server tries to post on CP? --TK/MyTalk"Editor 23:47, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Actually a sysop can edit through a blocked IP, even if it is not set to anon only. - π 01:20, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
The reference was to Conservapedia's IP, not your own. The block of the Eagle Forum server was intended, I believe, to demonstrate that you are prone to blocking IPs that are unassociated with vandals. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 23:51, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Well, whaddayouknow? TK concedes that we don't have checkuser. (talk) 00:10, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Concedes? You cannot recognize sarcasm? --TK/MyTalk"Editor 01:11, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Should have realized that posting here would have led to a ban. I think it was because I called dear leader Assfly (not on CP, of course; that would be liberal namecalling), honestly, although initially I thought I'd get it from the open mind and godspeed parts, which were pretty clear mockery. The ban expires tomorrow and I'll get back to correcting grammar errors and spelling mistakes like a good CP user, although I don't have it in me to feign conservative ideology. I was just very upset by the ruling, and still am. Also, I get a kick out of the fact that Daniele is Italian for Daniel (if I were a girl it would be Daniela), and that it was immediately assumed that I'm a girl. ScientificRigor (talk) 00:24, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Wow, hard up for kicks much? Perhaps you need a good hobby! --TK/MyTalk"Editor 01:11, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Ken's incoherence[edit]

How can an article in an encyclopaedia, be a good use of an encyclopaedia?img - π 04:12, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

He's talking to himself...again. δij 04:14, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
aSK is down, so he can't attract our attention that way. - π 04:16, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I wonder if he made those videos himself. The quality is certainly low, but the familiarity with the material is high. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:18, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I suppose these were the waves he was going on about. So much build up for so little. To be honest I have come to expect that from him now. Three YouTube videos that will probably never get more that 1,000 views. It is sad to see him try so hard for such little results. - π 04:23, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Right, I haven't watched the YT video as I have an extremely slow connection at the moment, but I can already see the production values in the first few seconds (a camera pointed at a PC screen, with "conservapedia" written in notepad - with the YT star pointing at the screen with a pen...). Given the shiteness of the video, and the shiteness of the five comments (Ken's one actually says "good use of encyclopedia~ " (sic), why is Ken so keen to highlight it? Really, Kenny-boy, it's nowt to be proud of! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 05:23, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Resistance is futile, Ken has already won. Acei9 05:40, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
(EC)Not that guy again. He also did a video on the evolution article for Ken. Then when Ken posted that on the front page, the guy did a video about how his video was on the front page. Which Ken then posted on the front page and the cycle went around once more.
I sent the guy an email begging him to use Capture Fox, but he never replied. He heavily moderates all comments, so unless you are blowing smoke up his arse, your comment won't get approved. - π 05:44, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
All religionist youtubers seem to be like that - ratings disabled and comments heavily moderated (if enabled). I like the thought of Ken getting in to that perpetual loop though, how did it end? Do you think it will happen again. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 09:46, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
The guy didn't make a fourth video. - π 09:53, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Isn't it possible, or even probable, that Ken and this YT guy is the same person? Etc 20:52, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Oops, that question has already been asked. My guess is yes, he makes these videos himself. Etc 20:54, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I usually roll my eyes at these guys who can't even manage to clean their houses or put on a clean shirt when they're trying to talk about serious shit - but Shockogod takes the cake for lazy production value. And it's fucking brilliang. Why bother using your noodle when all you have to do is read someone's shitty article. This will be my big YouTube break. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 16:05, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
I doubt he's Conservative. On another of ShockofGod's videos he's chatting up some biker in a gas station and says his name's Rich. SJ Debaser 16:18, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Challenge on![edit]

Right then, who fancies making a YT video about CP, then trying to get Ken to feature it on the main page? (SuperJosh need not apply) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 09:46, 21 January 2010 (UTC)

Damn. I really want to, but I don't have a video camera. DickTurpis (talk) 15:08, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Woe with me! My spectacularly bad YouTube videos I posted about 5 months ago have yet to be recognised by the great Conservative! SJ Debaser 15:10, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Go for it then, Josh! Your videos are certainly of the standard enjoyed by Ken, I'm sure he'd like the "British conservative praises conservapedia" angle. Can you do a David Cameron voice? (Not that Andy would consider him to be a 'conservative', despite being leader of the Conservative party. Anyway, I'm rambling a bit now) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 15:54, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
I wouldn't actually mind trying that, though I don't think I'd like the negative attention from the YouTube community, it has too much of a massive religious vs. atheist and conservative vs. liberal userbase. SJ Debaser 16:21, 22 January 2010 (UTC)
Set up another account to use for your CP vid. Open it now and look at it now and favourite a few bible-bashing/right-wing vids so Ken doesn't spot that it's just been opened to make his video. (Is he that clever?) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 19:32, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Interesting news story[edit] 'the two church-goers from New Jersey had the best intentions in the world when they arrived in Port-au-Prince this week to help victims of Haiti’s killer earthquake.' ...'Trouble was, that was all they had' — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

No comment! I have just eaten Toast& stiltontalk 18:28, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
Goddamned liberal commie Haitians don't appreciate the value of prayer. That's obviously what the New Jersey folk brought, AND THEY CENSORED IT! This wouldn't have happened if Reagen were in charge. You know what, I bet that news story was published by gay lesbian atheists. Perhaps they brought memorized verses of the most logical book in the world, the Bible. Hey, speaking of which, I just got a brand new insight! *Runs off to rewrite another portion of the most logical book ever written* AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 19:36, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
But..but.. this is impossible. Not only are they the Best of The PublicTM, but they're also good Chrisjuns. Norseman is right. This is surely a liberal conspiracy, and I'm certain that Andy will get to the bottom of it as soon as Ed and Karajou return home. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 20:54, 21 January 2010 (UTC)
The sheer weight of all the aid workers, even if they dont actually have aid with them, will help stabilize the fault that caused the first quake. The Haitians should not grieve for the dead , after all the voodoo preists will have them back up and moving in no time at all. :( Hamster (talk) 16:48, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Conservapedia and SCOTUS[edit]

The US Congress has been behaving like the legislature of a failed state. No matter what issue/problem we present to Congress, by the time it comes out the other end of the sausage machine it's been reduced and repacked into a series of corporate welfare measures. This happens no matter whether the agenda is right-wing or left-wing. Bush proposes Medicare Part D, it turns into a handout to PhRMA. Obama proposes a public option, it turns... into a handout to PhRMA. No matter who wins elections, the public interest loses.

When you look at it that way, why should Conservapedia be so happy about more corporate money in politics? Exxon will be able to spend moar money to defeat those dirty hippies, true. But who do you think is going to win in a fight between homeschoolers and Prentice Hall? How about anti-vaccine nutsos and Merck? How about small government teabaggers and Goldman Sachs or ADM?

Corporations militate against the political agendas of both the grassroots right AND the grassroots left. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 05:56, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

SamF is in over his head[edit]

Looking just at this edit:

"The mammalian whale lacks plausible ancestors along points of a proposed evolutinary pathway." - Are there other whales besides mammalian ones? What happened to ambulocetus, protocetus, rodhocetus, basilosaurus and others?

"the enormous gaps and lack of intermediate species between kinds in the fossil record." What's a kind? And why is a lack of an intermediate species a counterexample of evolution?

New Weakly toon (intresting thing about God)[edit] Notice how he subtracts God the first time (thus making evolution anti-God), but then he subtracts God a Second time, only this time, God has a "no" sign around it (or whatever they are called), meaning they subtracted the negative of God, which would make the amount of God in Evolution = zero. Which is certainly not what they are arguing, but is the truth, that the theory of evolution is pro or anti-God. Unless karajou is sending us messages that he is secretly a liberal, it was just a screw up, but I am selectively OCD, so I just needed to say that. (I am a Christian, and I do believe in God, but I don't see any reason why God and Evolution have to be mutually exclusive, but then again, I am not completely batshit insane) EDIT: I would also like to point out that he did the same thing for common sense.--Passerby25 (talk) 18:48, 22 January 2010 (UTC)

Conservative movie[edit]

Besides "Pillow Talk" getting Andy all hot when he watches the women getting slapped around, I'm surprised that a conservative movieimg has a gay leading man, who engaged in liberal deceit by staying in the closet. Obviously, the wife beating was important enough to win out.
Actually, to add to that, it won an Oscar and has been added to the National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically” significant (thanks to WP for telling me that). Now things like that would make it a good conservative movie, but for Andy, it's all about the uppity bitch getting slapped around.

Wingers really are incapable of understanding the fallacies of their own argument. When Bush won, it was "a mandate" of the people. When Obama wins, it's "Why won't he listen to the people?" When the Democrats win Congress on, among the promises, a platform of making a public option for health care, the wingers shout, "Socialism!" When one senator wins against another who ran a terrible campaign, it's "The people have spoken!" So why is it "the people" speaking when it agrees with them, but not what "the people" want when it disagrees with them? I know! It's because wingers are utter morons incapable of rational thought, and thus perceive anyone who disagrees with them as an enemy. Nixon never died, he just transferred the creepiness to future generations. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 05:01, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Ed Poor[edit]

Insinuations that Ed Poor is a sex pest or paedophile, I mean, WTF? Come ON! On what basis are these insinuations made? What possible justification is there?

Yes, of course, it's only my view that it isn't funny. But that's not my primary objection. My objection, which you seem to be unable to grasp, is that calling an opponent a paedophile based on nothing more than a vague "creepiness factor" is just plain wrong.

No, not your comments - they just reminded me.
Interesting point you make though. The way I see it is that, as a culture (well, certainly in the UK), we seem to be obsessed with paedophilia. And it's become toxic. "Must be a paedo" seems to be the default position many people take when adults take in interest in children. And it doesn't take much imagination to think that Ed might teach children and be genuinely worried about the effects of pornography on them. Indeed, it takes rather more imagination to conclude that he might be a paedophile. Ajkgordon (talk) 09:41, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
@Ajkgordon - I hear you. In my country there is a shortage of male primary school teachers due to the idea that if a male wants to be one he must have some sort of nefarious intent. Its a hard label to shrug. Acei9 09:49, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

WIGO fail[edit]

Pravda in the post-soviet press is an entirely different publication, only the name has been retained. The Russian press (although becoming less and less so) is pretty free, and the Russian press in the 90's was the freest in the world, so Pravda's reporting shouldn't be mocked in a WIGO... JeffD (talk) 14:48, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

But what makes the whole thing especially funny, is that Pravda becomes a perfectly acceptable source for Rob "Reds Under The Bed" S, when it latches onto some bizarre conspiracy theory regarding Pres Barry. No barrel is too deep to scrape when it comes to digging up "dirt" on the Pres. I wonder how many other Pravda sources there are on CP. --PsygremlinSiarad! 14:52, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

TK WIGO's = fucking boring[edit]

I added TK to one just to see if it would bring the total vote down. It did. Based on my unscientific observation of this and other WIGO's mentioning TK, I conclude that mentioning TK in a WIGO, even without using his name, is the kiss of death.

I propose that the WIGO vote code automatically permablock and promote any editor who adds a WIGO involving TK unless the user affirms under oaht that TK's presence in the WIGO is not simply to illustrate that he's a dick. We already knew that. CP is about Andy and his hillbilly pals' crazy, not TK's trollery. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 18:22, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Heh, sometimes I would argue that yes it is, but that's another discussion. As LX said, it's not a bailout so much as extending FDIC. Also, it's a little fuzzy whether a bailout of GE Capital (their lending division) would really count as a bailout of NBC (a subsidiary). The blogs I was talking about are more like this one. JazzMan 19:10, 24 January 2010 (UTC)
What's worse is that NBC is owned by NBCU, a joint corporation owned by GE and Universal Vivendi. It's being sold off to Comcast, at least 51% of the company. So it's NBCU, not GE, paying the bills. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 19:51, 24 January 2010 (UTC)

Astonishing how shameless he is sometimes. H. Randolph Twist (talk) 14:07, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Not quite, that seems to discredit the claim that other presidents were black (and besides was written by Bharlan). See here:


'The racial composition of all the past presidents is not completely known, so I doubt it's appropriate to insist that Obama would be the first black President. Also, the racial composition of a man is not as important as his beliefs. It is known that none of the prior presidents were Muslim.--Aschlafly 21:54, 11 October 2008 (EDT)' (talk)

I see where you're coming from now. That's a bit of a turn around, in the version of the article I linked which has the Schlafly seal of approval, the article claims "President-elect Obama is multiracial; his father was part Arab and part black, and his mother was white". Andy himself tinkered with that sentence, and in an article explaining how extremists want us to believe certain US presidents were black, it comes across as "No he's not black, well, maybe a little but it's dilluted so it doesn't count!".
See what happened there? A bit of time passes, and he goes from "Obama may be black but the other presidents may have been too" to "there were no former black presidents and Obama isn't black". Weirdos. -RedbackG'day 02:57, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Devils Tower was formed by molten igneous rock forcing its way into the area's sedimentary rock, cooling before reaching the surface, and the sedimentary rock being eroded away. What's wrong with that? obviously plenty of time in the last 6000 years for the forcing, cooling and eroding. I have just eaten Toast& stiltontalk 18:51, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Yes, all rocks were placed as sediments. That doesn't mean that God didn't make all the different kinds of pretty rocks for us to enjoy. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 19:01, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
You forget your Flood Geology ! The flood laid all the sedimentry rocks and while it was still a bit moist a comet of water ice returned from its orbit and punched a hole through the drying sediment. The layer of water that supported the crust was now gone (waters of the deep) so there was just MOLTEN MAGMA ! underneath and it bubbled up through the new hole. This dried the mud to rock and formed the tower. See how Creation Scince solves these small mysteries. :) Hamster (talk) 19:06, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

The latter. Before the world found CP, there was little use of the banhammer.

The CP article on African Americansimg has some classic parody. My favorites are:

  • "Colored" was popular until the 1950s, but now is generally out of favor except among some left groups.
  • Blacks were Republicans from the 1860s to the 1960s, but few who lived in the South voted.
  • The standard practice since Reconstruction is for black ministers to be political power brokers...

(EC) The first two are correct (although the modern version of the term is "persons of color" rather than "colored people").

Andy and ethnicity[edit]

Andy sez: "The reality is that almost any ethnic group today holds political positions that span the spectrum from left to right. Indeed, a strong argument can be made that race is no longer directly relevant [to politics]."

Coming from the same guy whose blog has special sections on Hollywood values, mainstream media bias, a 50-cite article on ACORN, and an article on Barack Obama that specifically mentions the "Black liberation theology" of his church as well as what percentages of the Muslim and Black votes he received. No racial overtones there?

Ultimately I think Andy's problem with the article had less to do with ethnocentrism and more to do with the fact that the article talks about a lineage of American intellectualism that, inexplicably, doesn't trace itself back to stalwart Protestant Values. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 17:26, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Anyway, I don't see how Andy's "official" faith affects the argument. He is profoundly a Protestant in his social and theological outlook. He believes in the Bible as sole authority, grace as sole source of salvation, I've never seen evidence that he's too fussed about sacraments or saints, he is a young earth creationist. That all points to Protestant.
Andy, like many Christians, is fundamentally an authoritarian, that is: he believes what he's told to believe and then he reads the Bible and thinks it proves that what he already believes is true. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 21:53, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

God...wouldn't it be a lot easier if we could just ask him? — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 22:34, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Technically Andy's position is not that the Pope is right, it's incredulity that the Pope would ever disagree with Andy, that would be a reversal of the natural order of the universe. "I'm sure no pope" has endorsed evolution, then when proven wrong by an encyclical he says it is "logically contrary to faith."
Like I said above, he believes X then he goes to find authorities and reads X into whatever they have said. The Pope was just an innocent bystander of Andy's craziness. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 22:44, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Andy is just a catholic who practices doublethink at times. But he would certainly never rebel and convert to another denomination. I just don't see that happening.

"Like belongs with like"[edit]

I think TK is objecting to balkanization there... Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 21:54, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

I think balkanization is splitting up by ethnic groups. TK objects in that diff to splitting up of ethnic groups. Coarb (talk) 22:09, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
He might have misworded it; I get that impression because the thread is about "exaggerating the importance of ethnicity," which would tend to produce balkanization. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 22:12, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
A conservative inveighing against balkanization? Ethnocentrism is one of the defining elements of authoritarian conservatism. Read this whole book, or here for the tldr version. Here's an insightful quote from the book:

Most of us associate with people who agree with us on many issues. Birds of a feather do, empirically, tend to flock together. But this is especially important to authoritarians, who have not usually thought things out, explored possibilities, considered alternate points of view, and so on, but acquired their beliefs from the authorities in their lives. They then maintain their beliefs against new threats by seeking out those authorities, and by rubbing elbows as much as possible with people who have the same beliefs. (The Authoritarians, p. 87)

Sound like anyone we know?
Dr. Altemeyer then explains why parody works: authoritarian conservatives rely deeply on social reinforcement to reassure themselves of their beliefs. So anyone who comes along and sings the right tune....

The need for social reinforcement runs so deeply in authoritarians, they will believe someone who says what they want to hear even if you tell them they should not... they rely on the authorities in their lives to provide their opinions... then once they have “their” ideas, someone who comes along and says what authoritarian followers want to hear becomes trustworthy. High RWAs largely ignore the reasons why someone might have ulterior motives for saying what they want to hear; it’s enough for them that another person indicates they are right. Welcome to the In-group!

In other words you can email Andy all you like that TK is a parodist (as PJR vainly attempted), but Andy has a deep psychological need to surround himself with people like TK.
Conservapedia itself is a massively ethnocentric place of course, with an "us vs them" bunker mentality that's out of control. The vast majority of Americans would be to Andy, if they dared to start editing, Deceitful Liberals. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 22:26, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
Spare me the quotes from Bob ("People Who Take Too Much Exception to My Politics Have a Mental Disorder") Altemeyer, if you please. Nevertheless, as paradoxical as it may seem, there is an element of ethno-centrism in this case; the American national identity involves the melting pot, which means that making a big deal out of one's pre-melting-pot ethnic identity is frowned upon. See Hyphenated American. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 03:50, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Authoritarian conservatism is not a political identity, it's a psychological orientation - "conservatism" here meaning defending the moral authority of the establishment, the status quo. The Soviet party faithful were authoritarians, in fact studies showed that the hawks on both sides of the Cold War were psychologically horses of the same color.
As for the retarded "melting pot" metaphor, it conveniently ignores that at every step of the way conservatives fought to keep ingredients out of the bowl - Irish, Jews, Blacks, Mexicans, you name it, at different points in history every ethnic minority group in America was assailed by conservatives as being unworthy of "mixing" its genes with the WASP establishment. Even today.
Evangelicals can claim they believe "We're all God's children" as much as they want, I'll believe them when they stop tuning in to TV hosts worrying about America's white-minority future. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 04:57, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
"Authoritarian conservatism is not a political identity..." Moving the goalposts much?
"As for the retarded 'melting pot' metaphor..." It ignores no such thing. The concerns (at least with the Irish and the Jews) were more cultural in nature.
"Evangelicals can claim they believe 'We're all God's children'..." Funny thing about that; evangelicals tend to be one of those multi-racial bunches... Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 05:38, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

2: How so? The primary reason for opposition to Irish immigrants was that they were Catholics, and it was only the Nazis who tried to portray Jews as a "race." Once the groups had assimilated (and American culture had altered itself in the process, which is what the melting pot was all about) only fringe groups remained very much opposed to them.

No, no, a thousand times no. Unless you are someone whose entire job revolves around public speaking (minister, politician), the absolute surest way to guarantee a dull speech is to just "read what is written". I've set through a talk given by someone who was obviously reading the presentation directly from a sheet of paper. It was so dull, I found myself hoping for a massive coronary just to get me out of the auditorium. MDB (talk) 16:37, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
Exactly. Even speech classes emphasize how to speak to people, how to maintain eye contact, how to use your hands properly, how to speak to the back of the room and the front of the room at the same time, how to deal with a question and answer approach, and so forth. Which is why I found it hilarious that Andy feels that public speaking is nothing more than reading what has been written. No wonder he tanked on Colbert. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 17:19, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Ugh. I haven't looked too much at the other courses Conservapedia offers, but aren't lectures supposed to offer information that is actually useful? This lecture has zero useful information, apart of a) common sense morale boosting (yes, writing is important; yes, you can do a whole lot of stuff just by writing; yes, if you write you'll get better and you're able to use fancier words eventually), and b) stuff that's pretty irrelevant as far as writing itself goes (I don't remember darn about the "tips" and requirements that were part of our equivalent of SAT, 10-and-some years ago, but I sure remember a lot of stuff that were said in our language and literature classes). I'd like to ask Andy: Where's the big plan? Where's the awesome, overwhelming display of erudition? Where's the part where you show that this course is going to be informative? Right now, all I know is that a) writing sure is important, b) SATs are confusing, but some people paid good money to get their kids educated, hence this course exists, and c) this course takes 15 weeks.

A Brief History of Logos[edit]

Before Christianity were the stoics. One of the earliest stoics was Heraclitus who used the word logos as a core part of the philosophy. Logos was what separated humans from animals - the ability to talk, to use words, to understand reason. It was an attempt to understand the reason of the universe. Things come and go in accordance with logos. The good times and the bad times are both part of the larger balance of the universe, and logos. Being good in stoic philosophy was to be in accordance with logos - in harmony with the universe. Good things happen, bad things happen. And thus, we have a stoic person today - that takes the good with the bad. Anyways, when the Gospel of John was being written it was trying to appeal to the greek intellectuals (Matthew was written for the Jewish people - showing a close alignment of Jesus with the OT prophecies). And thus, the author of the Gospel of John wrote "In the beginning was logos and logos with God and logos was God" - trying to draw stoicism and Christianity together. Word and Reason are both acceptable translations of Logos. For a good read of stoicism, I suggest Heraclitus [5][6] Epictetus (born a slave) [7] and Marcus Aurelius (Roman emperor) [8]. --Shagie (talk) 18:36, 26 January 2010 (UTC)

Wordy "Obama's an elitist"[edit]

Yes, Obama's an elitist.img Hey, wingers, you know what? You should want a president who is smarter than you. You should demand the president surround himself with intellectual heavyweights who may, at times, disagree with the president. You should want someone who puts everyone's interests ahead, rather than some good ol' boy you can have a beer with. Haven't 2001-2009 taught you anything yet?

I'm getting frustrated with the stupidity that emanates from the wingers. Earlier I saw a report quoting Fox that stated that Air America Radio's bankruptcy shows that America is ditching liberal ideas. No, it's not. It's showing that a network with few high profile voices, an inability to sell advertisement and a lack of good programming is doomed to failure. Their previous bankruptcy was due to management issues. There are other liberal syndication networks still in good standings.
It would be great if we could have adults being adults, and discussions about rational, reasonable issues. Instead we get very immature ideas and filler, and a whole bunch of hyperbole and ignorance. America doesn't want an elitist president, for example; they want a guy they could have a beer with. Democrats take 60 seats in the senate, but they should listen to what the people want; one Republican wins a senate seat held by a Democrat who passed away, against a poorly run campaign to boot, and the people have spoken. It's ridiculous and it's only getting worse. Conservapedia is just part of that infuriating faction of the American public. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 16:26, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
This is exactly it. Look at the whole goddamned teabagging movement. A democrat wins the presidential election soundly, and the democrats win overwhelmingly in congress. What does this prove? We have to speak truth to power! We have to make the people's voices heard! We the people cannot allow these elitist despots to push through the agenda they were elected on! Here's a fun game: try to imagine what America would look like if the wingers got their way: Obama fails miserably, Republican ideologues hold congress for ages with a more puritanical nut than Bush in charge. PubliusTalk 16:44, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
And they can't even be honest about the Tea Party movement itself. It's billed as a "grassroots" movement by FoxNews, which created it! It's promoted as a bipartisan or non-political movement, when it's all wingers. It's got extremists and nationalists heading up TP groups throughout the country, but somehow it's simply "the people's movement." Honesty, rationality and critical thinking seem not to apply to the very people this kind of shit brings out from under their rocks. And they fill the 24 hour news networks with it.
You want to know what people want? See at the elections. And stop forcing your opinion onto everyone because you have a media empire with which to do it. And TK? You're still an asshole. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 16:59, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Intellectual Dishonesty and the Right[edit]

The claims that the Teabagging Party movement are "grassroots" are belied by its own attendance numbers. When Fox News relentlessly promotes them (the original Tax Day protests, Glenn Beck's 9/12 rally) they get decent to impressive numbers. When Fox doesn't promote them, like the 4th of July rallies, the numbers are laughable. To give another example of intellectual dishonesty... sponsored a "Bush in 30 Seconds" video contest. One video was submitted that compared Bush to the Nazis, protests ensued, and pulled it, rather quickly. But all you heard was "moveon said George Bush was a Nazi! Those awful liberals!" But now, people of the same political philosophy, if not the exact same people, claim Obama is simultaneously a Socialist, a Nazi and Muslim. MDB (talk) 18:13, 25 January 2010 (UTC)

Or the people who intentionally darken Obama's photos... It's a bunch of children who can't grow up, think for themselves or even bother living in reality. And it's growing because it has a network, a political party and many formerly-underground groups who want legitimacy. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 18:36, 25 January 2010 (UTC)
See...I've always kind of wondered about that. Not to paint with a broad brush. I know both sides of the isle have their respective shares of idiots. But the more I read of the so called "conservatives," the more I see them in the news and read their ramblings and hear their words, the more I wonder about something. I know its been joked about before and mentioned and mulled, but there really some kind of requirement to being a conservative today that you have to be a hypocrite? Looking back I see it more and more. The same person who says adulterers will burn in hell is also the one who gets caught having an affair (Swaggart). The same person who says drug users are losers we wouldn't waste money on rehabilitating goes into rehab for a dependency on pills (Rush). Then we have the preacher who decries gay marriage and then gets caught buying drugs and getting massages from gay prostitutes (Haggard). A senator tries to get a nude beach closed on the grounds he wants to protect children and then gets busted sending lewd texts to senate pages (Foley). Abortion is a society destroying sin but its ok to shoot the doctors and bomb the clinics. When their president is in office those who disagree with him are traitors, but when our president is in office doing everything you can to defame, discredit, or decry him is a patriotic duty. Its ok for the government to tell people who they can marry but heavens forbid you try to regulate the sale of handguns. Etc...etc...etc...
I guess my point is its one thing to stand at the podium and say you should be in charge because you want to serve the public interest and do right for the country and better our society and meanwhile be boinking your secretary, taking under the table hand outs, so on and so forth. That person is a crook and liar. But the person who stands at the podium and says he should be in charge because he so much more moral than everyone else and believes in traditional family values, yadda yadda, and HE is boinking his secretary, taking under the table hand outs...this person is a hypocrite and theocrat. Maybe its just me but I can at least stomach and work with the first guy. The other guy I have nothing but contempt for. And maybe its just me, and maybe I'm off my rocker, but I've been seeing that guy more and more in the conservative ranks lately. -Tygrehart
I would submit that the people who murder abortion providers are not hypocrites. They are extremist zealots, to be sure, but if someone honestly believes that abortion is the taking of a human life, then it is not hypocritical to use violence to stop abortion. (It's wrong for a whole host of other reasons, but at least its not hypocritical.)
Now, if you want some intellectual amusement, try to get a pro-lifer to answer whether or not they think doctors who perform abortions should receive whatever penalty they feel is appropriate for first degree murder. I tried it once. He avoided the question repeatedly, but finally, after essentially demanding he answer, he admitted they would not support that, but still tried to argue he thought a fetus was a human life. MDB (talk) 13:13, 26 January 2010 (UTC)
I could split the hair about one of the usual arguements from pro-lifers being that abortion is murder and murder is wrong, thus making those who think its ok to kill the doctors and staff involved hypocrites, but your observation is noted and will be considered should I ever engage in this topic of discussion again. Still, I ask again if anyone else has noticed an upswing in the "do as I say, not as I do" mentality amoungst the right these days. -Tygrehart
Just playing Devil's Advocate here... I don't think they view killing an abortion provided as "murder", per se; I think they view it as justifiable homicide. I'm not defending that view, mind you; I'm just pointing out what I perceive their logic to be.
As for an upswing in "do as I say, not as I do"... hhhmmm... I'm not sure. One of the things you learn from reading Shakespeare is "great men have great flaws" (great in the "influential" sense). From Shakespeare, Caesar was overly ambitious, Hamlet was indecisive, etc. From recent history, Nixon was paranoid, Clinton couldn't keep his dick in his pants, etc. Couple that with a media that will expose your flaws eventually. Add in an American right that's set itself up as the nation's moral guardians, many of whom have very prominent voices (can you name a left wing moral critic -- all I can think of are Jim Wallis and C. Weldon Geddy), and "do as I say..." cases are inevitable.
And lets not kid ourselves... liberals aren't immune from moral failings. Bill Clinton's sex scandals are obvious (though I personally suspect Bill and Hillary have an open relationship, but they could never admit that in public. And if I'm feeling catty, I'll add "they're both allowed to sleep with other women.") And John Edwards ought to be fucking ashamed of himself -- cheating on a wife who has cancer, knocking up his mistress, getting a staffer to take the blame, lying about it for months. He's a disgrace.
Now, of course, liberals generally take the "consenting adults" philosophy, which makes them less open to charges of hypocrisy. But our leaders can't claim that much moral high ground. MDB (talk) 12:45, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

If your feelings get hurt, too fucking bad. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 02:00, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
This is pretty disgusting, and TK, you are a worm who isn't half as smart as he likes to think he is. But then again, this is par for the course... remember Andy's obsession with school shootings all being the fault of liberals? H. Randolph Twist (talk) 02:05, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
You must be new here. School shootings are a liberal trait. TheoryOfPractice (talk) 02:06, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Oh come on guys, leave TK alone. After all, liberals are trying to invite more Muslims into the country, which will make the US morally depraved like the UK. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 02:34, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

TK, shit like this gets you mocked. Look above. You blame the liberal media for not reporting on the overblown ACORN story, which is landing quite a few people in court for wiretapping charges, but where are the links for the court cases, or the guy getting arrested for attempting to wiretap a senator's office? You claim the liberal media doesn't want to cover stories you find important, even when they're completely false (as the teleprompter-with-kids story is), but you neglect to mention anything that goes against your ideology. In other words, stop tossing the rocks in your own glass house, asshole. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 02:51, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Being mocked is one thing, Irrationalatheist. Logical refutation is another. But name calling, outing of a persons full name for no other reason than hating them, and personally attacking someone for their own opinions is totally different. Please stop dressing up your distaste for CP in some false intellectual wrapping. The motivations anyone can read above have nothing to do with political or intellectual disagreements, and everything to do with hate and intolerance. I am talking about things happening here, not on CP. --TK/MyTalkRW User #45 03:25, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Don't you understand, IrrationalAtheist? TK fights the powah! Now he's playing victim on his talk page. "Waah! I was blocked for 30 seconds! RW is an autocratic regime!" What's the matter TK, are you frustrated we're not WIGOing your awful attempts at parody? Take my advice Terry and leave the funny to the pros. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 03:27, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
TK if you don't want people to comment on it, don't put it out there. This includes your real name, which you gave to a journalist, and you diatribes on the main page. As for abusing a tragic event to make a "point", if you give hate, you will receive hate. - π 03:30, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
TK hates it when people out others real namesimg Acei9 03:33, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Ace and Pi, nowhere in the article RW used to say that was my name, did the reporter state that user was the CP Admin known as TK. Nowhere. You made the connection totally on supposition, and over my objections. One Bureaucrat here agreed, and removed all such reference's, and after he apparently left RW, he was reversed, and the community guidelines were changed, post facto. How is that fair? And Ace, both Trent and Ames have publicly, in many places outed their own names, with links to RW and CP. For Ace to equate and claim that is the same thing is a lie. --TK/MyTalkRW User #45 04:01, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

Gee, how did we work out Terry Koeckritz is TK, there is no obvious hints? This reminds me of Ken. You also use that article to claim we are a vandal site, if you want to split hairs what was actually said was some of the members participated in vandalism, not that the site was for vandals. This is a wiki you dumb motherfucker, things change on it; including policy which we are constantly debating, refining and revising. - π 04:11, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Absolutely wrong once again, Pi. Here is the Los Angeles Times quote, in full:

After administrators blocked their accounts, Lipson and several other editors quit trying to moderate the articles and instead started their own website, From there, they monitor Conservapedia.

And -- by their own admission -- engage in acts of cyber-vandalism.

In recent months, Conservapedia's articles have been hit frequently by interlopers from RationalWiki and elsewhere. The vandals have inserted errors, pornographic photos and satire, including this addition to an entry on Atty. Gen. Alberto R. Gonzales: "Mr. Gonzales is a strong supporter of torture as a law enforcement tool for use against Democrats and third world inhabitants." [10]

So, as I always point out, it was the Los Angeles Times stating this was a vandal site. Why did they do that? Because of the things members here told the Times reporter! As for things changing, you dumb Mofo, changing things post facto to make violating the rules here okay isn't logical or rational, just mean-spirited, and I am sad most of you posting here keep proving what this place is really about. --TK/MyTalkRW User #45 06:59, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
"changing things post facto to make violating the rules here okay isn't logical or rational" yet you block people for being editors, despite the fact you edit here yourself, because you changed the rules "post facto". TK the whole vandal site thing is played out. We, as a community, don't condone vandalism, but yes I am sure people who are members have vandalised the site. Now stop getting your panties in a twist just because we monitor and comment on the site. - π 07:21, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
I care nothing about monitoring or commenting. I care when people like you keep posting lies, Pi. Several on this page, like saying I am calling this a vandal site, when it was the Times, saying I was calling people (plural) at work, getting them in trouble, when I have never, not ever, done such a thing. The only Rational Wiki user I have spoken to at work (or anywhere else) was at his email invitation to do so. Quit using distortion to obfuscate legitimate complaints. Attack ideas, if you must, but stop with the personal hate. You should stop getting your panties in a twist...and stick to the facts. --TK/MyTalkRW User #45 07:47, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
I suppose all those mentions of the term "vandal site" in your block log were added by the Times as well? -RedbackG'day 07:54, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Okay the idea that you can use a tragic death of a girl to score a cheap political "points" is disgusting. How do you know her bullies are liberals any way? And shouldn't using tragedies for political gain be off limits? - π 08:05, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

As I have posted here, Pi, I can only go by my personal knowledge, and the personal destruction hate here, a liberal site, and the comments I read here, show me that is a pretty common liberal trait. I am not talking here about generalities about conservatives or liberals, which I don't mind, but very personal vituperation aimed at one person because you disagree with them, where their family can come across it, unlike those of you who are permitted by the rest to hide in anonymity like cowards, as you bash those of us who cannot, only due to your own actions. I have shown enough here to others who had doubts about my assessment of RW, as to if this is a serious and notable place. Through many of the members own comments (see Irrational just below) and actions you have shown it isn't, and will never be. --TK/MyTalkRW User #45 08:46, 27 January 2010 (UTC)

So you have nothing to support the claim but your own prejudices. How do you imagine the girls family would feel if they knew that that, based on nothing but your own hate, you are using her death to bludgeon us and other liberals who have nothing to do with it? - π 08:52, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
No, TK, I mock you because you're simply an asshole. You're predictable and paranoid, which makes you even more entertaining. You're stupid in wisdom, meaning you don't even realize when your arguments fall flat because they're so hypocritical. And attacking someone for their opinions? I'm attacking you for your trolling, you fucking moron. I could care less what kind of ice cream you like or which band you prefer on long drives. But I will point, laugh and ridicule because you think Obama's a marxist socialist muslim manchurian candidate seeking to overthrow the country. I mean that shit is right up there with L. Ron Hubbard's paranoia. Whether or not you truly believe half of what you say doesn't matter. You say it and therefore you get made fun of harshly. If you don't like it, get the fuck off the internets. --Irrational Atheist (talk) 03:42, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Entertaining? I think it's the opinion of most observers that Conservapedia would be a more entertaining place without TK. This is one of the key similarities between Conservapedia and RationalWiki. WodewickWelease Wodewick! 03:46, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
The LA Times article also states that Terry Koeckritz is 56. I think that is no longer the case. Just like the few RW members who admitted to having vandalised CP 30 months ago are no longer active editors here. Of course what is demonstrably true is that Terry Koeckritz is a liar - witness the UCLA plagiarism case, the "self-made" Christmas neon image, and numerous other examples, not to mention PJR's indictment. Now Terry, will you lie again and deny that you set up the "Godspeed" discussion board where you attempted to recruit, aid and abet people to help vandalise CP and that you have actively engaged in editing here under the pseudonyms of User:E.Wig and User:NightTrain?  Lily Inspirate me. 13:01, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
Despite all TK's protestations here, he remains the cunt who tried to gain some kind of leverage (only he knows what) out of Dean's wife's death, by posting that disgusting message on his own user page (and maybe Dean's too?). The man is lower than scum and deserves the same respect accordingly. --PsygremlinSpeak! 13:18, 27 January 2010 (UTC)
