Should be goodimg ("Conservapedia is considering launching a Conservapedia Creation vs. Evolution Project in the future.") Go for it Ken. At least you won't have those pesky evilutionists to contend with like PJR has on his blog. 01:14, 15 April 2010 (UTC)yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade)

Haha, first Andy was "Conservapedia" (third person), and now Ken is too. All kneel before the collective entity that is CP!
Also: we never saw Operation Grassroots or whatever it was, so I doubt this will happen. Tetronian you're clueless 01:17, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Ken has always been Conservapedia, or at least its intelligence wing (snork!). When "Conservapedia has learnt" something, you can be sure that Kendoll and no one else will be in the loop. And you can be sure that the thing that Conservapedia has learnt will never, ever happen. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:24, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

And Timmy TooLoose replies... "Uh huh...." Brilliant. ħumanUser talk:Human 08:27, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
It's quite silly indeed. Apparently, this has become a "He Who Must Not Be Named" situation where ANY mention of a certain full name is automatically an outing attempt of TK on CP and WP. The more hilarious part is that his public cries just shine a giant spotlight on it. It's kinda like someone saying "I wonder who did this," and someone else instantly going "IT WASN'T ME, YOU CAN'T PROVE ANYTHING!" Oh well, maybe it'll get me in touch with Jimbo Wales (who has been allegedly informed of this by TK). That'd be kinda cool, I guess. --Sid (talk) 09:03, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Attention seeking perhaps? Ajkgordon (talk) 09:16, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
At this point, I have no idea what Rob and TK are planning to achieve anymore. Their efforts seem utterly random so far. --Sid (talk) 09:22, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Indeed. Worse than random, incoherent. However, I think they want Jimbo to block you, me, and Trent until we remove Terry Koeckritz's real name from the internet. ħumanUser talk:Human 09:29, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

I take it back. This one is even better! In a perverse sort of way, but that's his style, isn't it? ħumanUser talk:Human 10:57, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Don't be boring. Also, why does your sig take up a whole line of text, noob? ħumanUser talk:Human 11:36, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Because it conforms to wp:WP:SIG -- Nx / talk 11:40, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
That's a retarded answer. This isn't WP and their policies don't apply here. ħumanUser talk:Human 13:55, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
But the reasoning behind that policy is valid here as well. -- Nx / talk 07:09, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Suit yourself, it's your wiki. -- Nx / talk 12:37, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Wow, that whole section is just a universe of fail on TK's part. I can imagine what any uninvolved party things when they across that and all they see it TK flailing and screaming, while all the other editors are just calmly asking him WTF he's on about. Bullying, indeed. --Kels (talk) 13:27, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

I wonder which new site Terry Koeckritz is trolling now, that's he's so worried about having his name up in lights. After all, logic would dictate that if he's so worried about CP admin TK being linked to the name Terry Koeckritz, then it must be his name. I'd love to see this go to court:
"Are you Terry Koeckritz?"
"Yes."
"But you're suing these people because they said you were Terry Koeckritz."
At this point the witness became hysterical and was carried from the courtroom, screaming something about "Where's the banhammer? Why can't I oversight this?" --PsyGremlinPrata! 17:34, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

My goodness. Having just reread the SDG and now seen TK's antics on WP, including calling me a liar, I have to say I've never seen anything quite like TK. TK - I'm not going to tolerate you calling me a liar and I won't be a pawn in your pointless effort to distance TK from Terry Koeckritz. I won't demand that you retract the objective falsehoods you've already made on the WP:Wikiquette page, just that you knock the lying off. Got it buddy?

(victim of malicious EC) For most people, this would be a pretty simple thing. If you don't want your name connected to unsavory acts, don't do unsavory acts. What's so tough about that? --Kels (talk) 18:23, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Somebody just posted this extract from the SDG on my blog (I have the ref - SDG/Level_1/29e7df4a2c4a2bd4.html). I think this should shut TK up for once and for all (my emphasis in bold:

LOL!

Anything above 75% accuracy, Ronald Reagan used to say, is impossible with reporters.

She used one of my more benign quotes, but took another, and worked it into the article anyway, because I likened them to terrorists, and that stuck in her mind. I am sure others made the analogy, and according to her article, they admitted they were! What could be better for us, in responding to RW? We simply adopt the Government’s own policy: “We don’t negotiate with terrorists.” When they deny that, we simply point to the confirmation of the Los Angeles Times. ;-)

The important thing is, the thrust was that against good and evil. And she showcased a mere child quaking with fear of being “destroyed” by those horrid Internet Vandals and Cyber Terrorists!

I can't find the link right off, but I remember him posting a bunch of our real names last July over on CP for some vindictive reason or another. I know mine was there, which is odd since I generally tried to avoid interacting with him, complete with a link to my old comic site. I also remember he and Koward used to delight in posting Ames' full name as well as others' to apparently discredit them if anyone Googled, so it's probably a bit late for him to worry about the morality of "outing" by this point. --Kels (talk) 19:40, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
His openly defamatory talk page diff and the start of a temper tantrum are hereimg. I'm glad he had the good sense to remove that stuff from public view. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 19:49, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
I always found that a bit hilarious, since I'm the one who's usually outspoken against vandalizing CP. --Kels (talk) 19:52, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Moar better[edit]

Fucking insane logic I fell off my chair. "Since I am an administrator at another wiki, as you could plainly see on my page, the idea that I would be vandalizing another wiki is pretty remote."

And yet, since we are all, oh never mind. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:22, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Deletions[edit]

TKimg and DouglasAimg are at the great spring cleaning, freeing Conservapedia not only from pop-culture, but also from atheist propaganda, i.e., articles on works of atheists. Well, Andy once stated

Article count beyond a certain critical mass (say 20,000 entries) doesn't have any particular significance.

Perhaps one should help them to reach the goal of 20,000 entries (currently, there are ~37,000)? TK, have a look at cp:category:years! larronsicut fur in nocte 05:42, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

That's a funny idea. I have the hiccups. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:32, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
'[...]You don't grasp the beauty of the destruction of articles. Do you know that Conservapedia is the only encyclopedia in the net whose database gets smaller every year?'
Maquissar did know that, of course. He smiled, sympathetically he hoped, not trusting himself to speak. Schlafly bit off another fragment of the dark-coloured bread, chewed it briefly, and went on:
'Don't you see that the whole aim of Conservapedia is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make a liberal world-view literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one article, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten. Already, in the Eleventh Edition, we're not far from that point. But the process will still be continuing long after you and I are dead. Every year fewer and fewer articles, and the range of consciousness always a little smaller. Even now, of course, there's no reason or excuse for indulging in liberalism. It's merely a question of self-discipline, reality-control. But in the end there won't be any need even for that. The Revolution will be complete when Conservapedia is perfect. Conservapedia is Theocon and Theocon is Conservapedia,' he added with a sort of mystical satisfaction. Has it ever occurred to you, Maquissar, that by the year 2050, at the very latest, not a single human being will be alive who could understand such a conversation as we are having now?'
'Except-' began Maquissar doubtfully, and he stopped.
It had been on the tip of his tongue to say 'Except liberals,' but he checked himself, not feeling fully certain that this remark was not in some way unorthodox. Schlafly, however, had divined what he was about to say.
'Liberals are not human beings,' he said carelessly. 'By 2050 or earlier, probably -- all real knowledge of Oldview will have disappeared. The whole literature of the past will have been destroyed. Russell, Marx, Hemingway, Dawkins -- they'll exist only in Theocon versions, not merely changed into something different, but actually changed into something contradictory of what they used to be. Even the literature of the Party will change. Even the commandments will change. How could you have a commandment like the 90/10 rule against talk, talk, talk, when the concept of debate has been abolished? The whole climate of thought will be different. In fact there will be no thought, as we understand it now. Conservapedia means not thinking -- not needing to think. Conservapedia is unconsciousness.' --George Orwell and Maquissar (talk) 08:00, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

My hiccups went away. ħumanUser talk:Human 09:30, 14 April 2010 (UTC)
Larron: between 33,000 and 33,100 articles as of yesterday. If I'm not mistaken there is actually less text in the article namespace proper now than there was two years ago. mb 09:56, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

Ahh, that explains a lot. It's mostly cover for "disappearing" an embarrassing essay that was linked from elsewhere (and probably included some embarrassing comments by admins too). Subtle, real subtle. --Kels (talk) 13:38, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

The page was written almost entirely by one BHarlan over the course of a few days in October 2008. RJJensen and Terrence Kockfritz made some minor tweaks to it last August. For the most part the page is an ideologically neutral and genuinely informative sysnopsis of the history of the Civil Rights movement. As such it is pretty damning for the Republicans. The article explicitly calls out icons such as Ronald Reagan, William F Buckley, and John McCain for their opposition to Civil Rights legislation, their support of South African Apartheid, and their general bigotry. The article also explicitly mentions that the driving force behind every step forward were liberal Democrats. It heaps scorn on Paleoconservatives to the point of actually using the word.
The page is liberally sprinkled, however, with some hilarious conspiracy crap about Black preachers using hypnosis and brainwashing to keep their parishoners dependent. Black people in general are blamed for making it easy for them. Also, Black people are being lied to about the Democrats by, wait for it, public schools.
The overall effect is that of a very weird pastiche. mb 14:53, 14 April 2010 (UTC)

I just had to have a little chuckle when I saw TK bitching about this stupid FoxNews stimulus share calculator. Tell you what TK.

Nothing's happened so far. Sounds like just an empty threat. Now that I think about it, /b/ would probably just attack without making grandiose-sounding threats beforehand. Tetronian you're clueless 01:13, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Not really, they are first and fore-most attention whores.

What the hell is "cyber-terrorism", anyway? I mean, I know we are, but what are we? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:30, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Something for the government to spend money on to "protect" us from. Also calling people cyber-terrorist sells newspapers. I am more annoyed about the confusion in the media about hackers and crackers. Hackers "hack" at programmes to make them work better/different, so long as it is open source this is legal. A cracker tries to get into a secured system, this is always illegal. I wish the media would learn the difference and stop liabling the noble hacker who only wants to write computer code. - π 04:38, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
What the hell is "cyber-terrorism", anyway? I mean, I know we are, but what are we? ħumanUser talk:Human 09:31, 15 April 2010 (UTC)
Well, what we do is, we very cleverly register an account on a wiki that uses nothing more than a simple Turing test to keep you out. So basically, so long as you are not a computer, you can register. We then very stealthily click a button that says "edit" and use it to change the text that appears on the page so that is says something that Andy disagrees with. This is then reverted by the click of a button and our account is blocked so that the "edit" button is no longer available to us. That is, as far as I can tell, the definition of "cyber-terrorism" as being used by Terry Koeckritz. - π 10:59, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

This reminds me...don't search engines usually remove/adjust for sites that abuse the ranking systems? ~ Kupochama[1][2] 03:02, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Depends on how you are doing it. The two main things the quality control bots look for is reciprocal links, this is why after the initial bump Ken's rankings tend to drop back to lower than they were a few days earlier, and repetitive material, e.g, the same site having multiple copies of the same page or parts of the page. Usually Ken gets good results from the spiders because of all the incoming links, but after a few days when the slower, less frequently run bots come along and look at what is actually going they get dropped back down the page ranks. - π 05:25, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Truly, truly, truly outrageous[edit]

What is outrageous is that anyone at WP would take all of this standing on chairs and screaming as any sort of serious complaint rather than trolling. I tell you, this is outrageous! --Kels (talk) 00:15, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

While I totally understand the reasons why several RW editors are getting involved in the ongoing saga at WP, I'd like to suggest to them all that a break might be advisable. TK and RobS (TK-CP and Nobs01) are trolling; nothing more, nothing less. None of their complaints are being taken seriously by anybody except people from here. They have managed to get to the point where an admin would be justified in making up to 4 blocks to stop the pointless edit-warring, insult-hurling and general trolling that's going on.
Don't let them do this to you.
There are plenty of other WP/RW crossover editors whom you can tag if necessary. Don't let yourselves become frustrated to the point of gaining a block.
Everybody here should know how TK operates. He will bang on and on about process while all the time lying, and perverting the truth, but calling him a liar isn't going to work.
The position of TK and RobS is untenable and that's obvious. They know that, too. Don't let them score a minor victory by letting yourselves be blocked. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 00:38, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Technically, I think it can be read as "halting will result in us knowing it's you, and thus legal action being taken," so yeah. It could use a semicolon or period where that first comma is. ~ Kupochama[1][2] 23:30, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
The commas are indifferent separators of clause, and there's no conjunction to suggest this is anything but a list.

Simple truth of the matter is if we are aware of a violation and fail to act we risk losing the right to maintain copyright on the work. An informal request to Andrew and Sitegrounds should be enough. I will take care of it. tmtoulouse 02:36, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

The original author of the article submitted it to both sites, so we both hold a unique copyright on the content. The problem arises because CP regularly erases important history through deletion and recreation. It is poor management that is for sure. tmtoulouse 06:23, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

It's amazing JacobB is still there at all. He was outed ages ago here as a parodist. But of course, blocking him for "liberal vandalism/parody" would, in the CPians minds be an acknowledgement of our existence (though TK's been testing that rule recently on CP).

Jacob's endgame?[edit]

Well, Jacob (and Douglas) finally made it to adminship. Any speculation about his exit strategy? The parody game has to get boring sooner or later, especially with the amount of time he puts in. He hasn't really done anything new lately (at least in public), so what's left? --Benod (talk) 23:16, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

TK's still there, which proves some parodists have the patience and lack of social lives to stay around. Maybe J & D will learn from teh über parodist? –SuspectedReplicant retire me 23:51, 16 April 2010 (UTC)
The question is, what sort of exit strategies are even possible? Pretty much anything can be undone and memory-holed. A truly spectacular exit would need some serious creativity and planning. PubliusTalk 00:25, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
The game has changed a bit. Back in the day there was no shortage of bright eyed editors to throw in to the wood-chipper, but right now it's a very limited selection. It's quite clear that Andy doesn't need to be pushed to adopt crazy and unpopular positions, so I'd like to see some serious undermining of a major sysop, such as Ken, Ed, Karajou, or the Mexican bandit. CP deserves to go out with an explosion, and the current slow slide in to mediocrity is really selling the site short. I'd be very impressed if someone managed to drag the Schlafly broodmare in to the game. --ConcernedresidentAsk me about your mother 00:33, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
I keep looking at the Active Editors stat. I think if that drops below Ψ, where Ψ is some value in TK's warped mind, he'll out himself. Given that there's variable ψ, which is people who edited but got blocked, (Ψ-ψ) must be approaching the critical value. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 00:51, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
Jacob and Doug have probably put a few gems in the CBP. Other than that, there's not really much they can do other than laugh in Andy's face. The only normal editor worth disposing of now is CPalmer, who has probably only survived this long because he hasn't really edited in the past half-year. The best thing they could do would be to take down TK with them; that way, CP might get some new editors, arguments would be held, and we would get to see the CP sysops in all their war finery once more. EddyP (talk) 01:10, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
I think the ideal endgame would be deleting a crapload of articles (with Andy's approval, of course) and gradually blocking the planet. That way, they can at least be sure that they did some irreparable damage to CP before they risk their own heads going after TK or someone else. Tetronian you're clueless 02:45, 17 April 2010 (UTC)
I agree. Block as many IPs as you can, insert as much gibberish as possible and defend it with blocks, maybe as a grand finale, delete and restore all the top 20 articles, thus not actually vandalising, but certainly screwing up Andy's beloved pageviews. Ideally, what every mole desires is entry into the soopah seekrit discussion group, so they can emulate Terry Koeckritz by sharing the secrets with everybody. --PsyGremlinParlez! 10:21, 17 April 2010 (UTC)

Actually, I don't think he's right at all.

Ken logic[edit]

Back at his best, Christian channels on YouTube being shut down for copy-right violation is a blow against atheism.img I will never cease to wonder what goes on inside his head. He must have some kind of special prism that reflects and refracts what he is reading so that it always comes out as "you are right Ken". - π 01:22, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

It seems to me that what Ken is really saying is this: Christian YouTube channels are being shut down because of copyright issues. The atheist channels are saying nothing about it. Therefore, they are the ones doing the censoring. QED. Tetronian you're clueless 01:17, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

What is ironic is that I discovered about some of the Christian channels being falsely DMCAed through the atheist DPRJones channel when he called for people's support for those same Christians through mirroring their videos. Ken though likely ignored that as soon as he realized it would contradict his stereotyping of atheists. Of course there was a string of false DMCAs against atheist channels not too long ago, and then there was the story of the Christian Venomfangx, who got caught and had to make a public apology. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:16, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Abortion and Hitler[edit]

Obvious parody is lame. -- Nx / talk 20:25, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

On a related note, I have a hard time understanding Ken's relationship with parody. Sometimes it looks like he recognizes parody for what it is, but then he'll go on to expand on the parody and take it seriously. Is he just that out of touch? (That's a rhetorical question, by the way.) Tetronian you're clueless 21:28, 18 April 2010 (UTC)
One more thing: I've been ignoring CP's latest project, so I didn't notice this until today, but Ken is alleging that they'll be vetting all the new articles. It's like they knew that they were inviting parodists to the party and decided to draw a line in the sand. My guess is that it won't matter. Ken's going to half-ass this like he does everything else, and they'll never find all the vandalism. Colonel of Squirrels白山羊不山羊。商讨。 21:36, 18 April 2010 (UTC)

Poe's paradox[edit]

An astonishing fact that I've discovered recently is that even parody by a known parodist can have a nauseating effect. Just Take JacobB for example, we all know that he is a parodist, same thing with DouglasAdams, yet when JacobB stole the work of another editor people were legitimately upset about it. I reread Andy's letter to PNAS and was pissed off at it, but it didn't nullify any of my anger knowing the DinsdaleP was permabanned when he got fed up with parody and started simply trolling. I'm having a hard time sussing out whether it is just another mental disconnect that causes me to enjoy and revile these people, or if it is because, as poe's law dictates, parody is by in large the same to read as fundamentalism. I remember back in 2003 thinking that fox news was ridiculous and feeling like most of america agreed with me, yet since then the pendulum has swung and most (53%?) of America will say with a straight face that Fox news if fair and balanced. I can't help but worry that an uncareful but effective parodist might in the end do more harm than good. :/ Thoughts? --Opcn (talk) 00:05, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I'm 100% with Human. That said, do people really think I was a parodist/troll when I was on CP? If anything, I was trying to speak for the other side (i.e. reasonable people) on issues where I felt something needed to be said, but I'd never supported or advocated vandalism or parody because they're boring, unimaginative and lame. Even master parodists like Bugler can only hope to point out the validity of Poe's Law, and since that's long been established what's the point of any more? In the end, the best reason TK could scrape up for permabanning me and silencing my consistent display of reality's known liberal bias was over my membership here, and that's a coward's excuse. --SpinyNorman (talk) 01:24, 19 April 2010 (UTC)
Fancy a coward who debates poorly relying on a crummy and contrived excuse to block you. No, I don't think you were a parodist or troll at all. There are 2 brands of parody that I detest and you didn't do either. I hate this current course of terrorizing users and parroting TK's smug but substanceless patter and Andy's extremely unique worldview (nobody and I mean nobody could possibly agree with Andy on the wackier stuff he repeats, but here we have guys like JacobB putting banners chilling discussion on the relativity page). I guess you could cram Bugler into that category. He was odious. Then there's the stupid obvious stuff like that clown's wiretap and abortion articles we were discussing earlier. Do you feel like you fit anywhere on these two extremes? I don't. That turned into a big back-pat. Cheers. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 02:55, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

I finally had time to catch up on recent issues of the Princeton Alumni Weekly magazine, and I was astonished to find an interview with our favorite conservative in the February 24 issue. And the April 7 issue has responses from fellow graduates: "No more of Mr. Schlafly’s know-nothing brand of conservatism!" [4] "God did not bring a Bible into existence to primarily turn Americans or anyone into political conservatives." [5] "I find his replies such total nonsense that I have to ask: Is this a leg pull?" [6] "I learned about the use of B.C.E. and C.E. in Hebrew school. I had no idea I was attending an atheistic and liberal religious ­institution." [7] - Cuckoo (talk) 16:48, 19 April 2010 (UTC)

By looking at things through a political lens, it often becomes easier to see what should not be there and where the biases come in. A political analysis of the manuscripts is an easier way to identify passages that are not authentic to the true spirit of the Bible than other approaches.

(unDent) Old practical joke to pull on a friend. Tell them, You know, the strangest thing happened to me today. I was in the checkout line at the grocery store, and I noticed there was an elderly woman in front of me, and she was crying.

I said to her, "Ma'am, is everything all right?"

She looked back, and said, "you look just like my son. He died about three years ago."

"Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that."

"Would you mind if I show you his picture?"

"Well, okay..."

She showed me the picture, and I didn't think I looked like him, but I didn't want to be mean to the woman, so I said, "Yes, there is a resemblance."

"Thank you," she said. "Could you do one more thing for me? Could you just call me, 'Mom'?"

I thought that was pretty odd, but I felt sorry for her, so I said, "All right... Mom."

She finished at the stand, and then the cashier rang up my groceries, and said "that'll be $235, please."

"What????" I asked. "There's only about fifty bucks worth here!"

The cashier said, "your mother said you'd pay for hers, too!"

"Wait just a minute!" I said, and ran out into the parking lot. I saw the old woman, and she was getting into her car. I managed to get close enough to grab her leg, and started pulling it and pulling it.... just like I'm pulling yours now. #rimshot# MDB (talk) 11:39, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Ouch! Ouch! Ken is just so embarrassing that I really feel sorry for him.

When Ken goes on these forays I see Dawkins as King Arthur in MP&THG with the limbless Black Knight of fundamentalism screaming "come back and fight you coward". But of course, in reality it is Ken who shies away from debate. Either by locking his articles at CP, or firing a salvo on a talk page/forum and refusing to continue with the thread when he has been pwned. His habitual deletions of stuff are really a badge of cowardice, in that he doesn't have the cojones to leave his ramblings and outbursts in public view. With the Library of Congress supposedly archiving Twitter tweets it would be funny to have access to Ken's bleats. (Lame spur of the moment joke: The Conservapedia version of Twitter could be called Bitter and their postings would be bleats.)  Lily Inspirate me. 03:04, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

How The Mind Works: Andy[edit]

Not earth-shattering by any means, but this little comment by Andy really sums up the way his mind (doesn't) work. Andy and DanP are debating how William Penn (found of Philly) came up with the name "Philadelphia". So Andy sez he'll do a little research, but that "anti-Christian bias from internet searching may make the truth harder to find than usual". I mean, really? Andy thinks that there's some sort of anti-Christian Internet cabal censoring search engine results to keep Christian history buried? And what's funny, too, is that the answer to the query is that Penn pinched the name "Philadelphia" from a city of the same name mentioned in Revelation. You'da thunk Mister Bible Genius Andy Schlafly--who claims to have studied the Bible cover to cover--woulda known that...--WJThomas (talk) 02:07, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Andy's position on the Bible strikes me as untenable. On the one hand, he claims to be knowledgeable enough to "translate" it effectively. On the other hand, he is emphatically not an expert...so what is he? In his mind, he's some kind of ubermensch who is still technically an amateur. But, in reality, he is obviously nowhere close to being a Bible scholar. Tetronian you're clueless 02:31, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
I have always admired those people who could remember a book verbatim from cover to cover. Unless you master memory tricks to do so it is largely a question of leaning by rote. So have all these bible-spouting fundamentalists memorised the entire book? I suspect not, they probably focus on the mainstream stories, essential teachings and/or those bits that support a particular viewpoint, especially those backed up with eternal damnation, brimstone and hellfire.  Lily Inspirate me. 02:45, 21 April 2010 (UTC)

Phil·a·del·phi·a

1. An ancient city of Asia Minor northeast of the Dead Sea in modern-day Jordan. The chief city of the Ammonites, it was enlarged and embellished by Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285-246 b.c.) and named in honor of him. Amman, the capital of Jordan, is now on the site.

2. The largest city of Pennsylvania, in the southeast part of the state on the Delaware River. It was founded as a Quaker colony by William Penn in 1681 on the site of an earlier Swedish settlement. The First and Second Continental Congresses (1774 and 1775-1776) and the Constitutional Convention (1787) met in the city, which served as the capital of the United States from 1790 to 1800.

Cp Sysops are bored[edit]

They must be bored at CP these days. With so few new users joining, there are not enough to block to keep them busy, so they've started deleting accounts of old users who were already blocked. (Causing red links all over pages) and deleting users who had never edited or had few edits. Then they actually began re-creating User pages, just to delete them again. (Hojimachong?) Now they are deleting tons of pages full of content: rock bands, singers, video games, movies, and anything else that they feel like calling "pop culture". The site is growing rapidly?

and websites they don't like:

8 April 2010 TK deleted "Storehouse of Knowledge" (Previously deleted by Admin, now recreated again)

and did Conservative re-create, then delete Hoji's page just to send a shout-out to him? Hasn't he been gone for 2 or 3 years?

14 April 2010 Conservative deleted "User talk:Hojimachong" (content was: 'The Conservapedia growing prominence on the evolution issue on the Unites States internet is coming along nicely don't you think? Bada boom! Bada [htt…' (and the only contributor was 'Conservative'))

And nowadays, all templates are locked and major template edits have to be requested and justified in advance. Not that many people would seriously consider to do so - it's work (even more so with the requesting/justifying procedure) and it's utterly thankless.

As for the sysops (who don't have to constantly justify their existence by kissing Andy's feet), several of them are incompetent, and the few who could are too busy with their pet projects or with banning and deleting editors. --Sid (talk) 18:58, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
Ya know what? When Conservapedia started, a pile of experienced Wikipedians offered to come on board and help out with technical stuff. Even ones who disagreed with his political and religious stance. Because they were nice people and wanted to help a new wiki out. He kicked off all the ones who stuck around longer than a month or two, of course - David Gerard (talk) 19:52, 21 April 2010 (UTC)
True enough. CP is self-defeating, and now they are just getting ridiculous. Not only are they deleting good pages, they are also creating pages on subjects they already have. CP has had an existing page about Christmas since 2007 but inexplicable today Aschlafly made another (stub) article, same subject. Refugeetalk page 07:22, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

You gotta love Ken's writing style[edit]

The other gem in Ken's horribly written screed is his failure in WWII history. "We may soon have our Lieutenant General, but if you're looking for a lesser position you can try out for Supreme Allied Commander Europe or Supreme Commander of he Allied Powers." Way to go. DickTurpis (talk) 12:03, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

I know it's amateur psychology but I honestly think Ken is lacking some part of what makes an sane adult. I thought he might be trying to game the search engines with some of his repetitive stuff but he's the same everywhere. See here for instance (from 2006). The man isn't all there and should be in secure accommodation where he can be cared for IMHO. 12:11, 22 April 2010 (UTC) yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade)
Is there really any doubt that Ken is at least mildly autistic, or something along those lines? I sometimes feel bad making fun of him because of it, but it's so hard not to. DickTurpis (talk) 17:31, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
Ken likely has real problems which I don't think should be the subject of jokes. — Sincerely, Neveruse / Talk / Block 17:37, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

@Neveruse: I tend to agree but neither should he be given a platform to demonstrate his problem, especially on an "educational" website. As long as Andy panders to him, we have a duty to pillory him. 20:28, 22 April 2010 (UTC) yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade)
Actually, Andy doesn't think much of Ken. The fact that he lets Ken contribute at CP is surely an act of conservative generosity. At least that's what TK told me a few months back. Keegscee (talk) 20:42, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I just want to be part of this section. I enjoy reading Ken being schooled on his content-free "arguments". ħumanUser talk:Human 21:26, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

Liar. You just wanted to use the cool new unindent template. Keegscee (talk) 21:48, 22 April 2010 (UTC)
Oh man, that template's awesome! Er...and Ken's a jerk or something. --IN SOVIET CANUCKISTAN, BEAVER DAMS YOU!!!YossarianThe Man from the USSR 22:18, 22 April 2010 (UTC)

EC) Fuck off Mei That should be elsewhere.

Ant-abortion project: "In addition, it is important that the articles be original and not created by merely cutting and pasting content from other websites."img Yup, don't want any of those naughty quote mines, Ken. 23:53, 22 April 2010 (UTC) yummy Toast&  honey(or marmalade)

Ken's list of abortion-related articles is staggering in its inanity

  • Abortion in Scotland (WTF!)
  • Catholic views on abortion
  • Protestant views on abortion
  • Anglican views on abortion
  • Religious views on abortion
  • American views on abortion
  • Democrat and Republican views on abortion
  • Political views on abortion
  • Barack Obama and abortion
  • Hillary Clinton and abortion
  • Abortion and Adolf Hitler

Even if all the articles are un-redded then what we can expect is a humongous single page with all of these articles copy pasted into it and then links to the exact same text saying "See main Article on...".  Lily Inspirate me. 02:12, 23 April 2010 (UTC)

These are all based on Google search terms. Realizing he has no chance of directing traffic to CP through the search "abortion" he is trying to chew up the next 100 most popular searches that include abortion. As there are few pages with those exact titles, he should expect to get top 5 result each time for that search terms. I also suspect that he is trying to give the impression to the search engine that this is a large resource on the topic and it will have a later effect of dragging up their abortion article, this is less likely to actually work, in the short term at least. - π 13:53, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
That's a good link that Toast, it's interesting to see Ken' 'work' before CP. As we're talking about Ken, here's a quote from that forum;
Ken's scholarship is abysmal. He is, frankly, a stupid and dishonest person; and recognized as such right across the spectrum of diverse views represented in this forum.

Here's a little game if you're bored. Look for the TOC in the cp:Abortion article.  Lily Inspirate me. 01:58, 24 April 2010 (UTC)
