Ah, now we know what the "90 days' leave" was for[edit]

Oh dear, did get up on the wrong side of Karajou's bed this morning? "Three daffy American academics..." "The rude, socially challenged and nasty atheists at the Richard Dawkins' website..." Good to see you crapping all over Andy's blog with your liberal name-calling.

Still, it's comforting to see that the "Conservapedia anti-atheism invasion of Britain is a smashing success" and "the Conservapedia anti-evolution invasion of Britain is on the very cusp of success." However, you might want to speak to Andy about all the 403 blocks that are preventing the Poms from actually seeing your imaginary invasion. --PsyGremlinPrata! 09:42, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

That's all part of the plan. How can we counter what we can't see? EddyP Great King! Disaster! 10:19, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I'd be more inclined to believe them if the remaining Conservapedia sysops who I've seen speak about Britain knew anything about this country or proper naming conventions for it. Up until then they can waste their time on their piece of shit blog which about 3/4ths of the world can't see anyway. And "tally-ho"? What the fuck is that? The most common phrase I hear when I'm out is "keep walking or I'll smash your face into the kerb." SJ Debaser 10:35, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
What do you expect from extreme nationalists? A thorough and nuanced understanding of British culture and European history? Scarlet A.pngnarchist 10:44, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
It sounds like Ken's knowledge of England has been gleaned from Biggles books and James Robertson Justice films. --PsyGremlin講話 11:21, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
could you please post a screen capture?--Brxbrx (talk) 12:03, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Here you goimg --PsyGremlinPraat! 12:18, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I was just wondering, how could Conservapedia think that breast cancer and abortion are related? I tried to change a few things related to this, but they banned me for 5 years. 5 years, for no vandalism. I guess the truth is a crime. I really do wish that ignorance was a crime, because all of them should be arrested! (Oh, and on a different subject, have you seen their article calling Pokemon "satanic"?) User: Lefty

Welcome to conserapedia my friend! You have a lot to learn! DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:22, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Indeed, PalMD already pulled that stunt years ago. With scien-ma-tific citations too. Didn't work then and they're even more trigger happy now. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 12:29, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
It is known that women who have had children are less likely to develop breast cancer than women who never have had children. However, AFAIK, there has been no study comparing abstinence, condom use, assorted pills, and abortion for rates of breast cancer. CS Miller (talk) 12:31, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
The same logic Andy uses also states that a shit-ton of fucking makes one less likely to get breast cancer than abstinence does. You won't hear him say that though. DickTurpis (talk) 12:45, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Andy's logic on the matter goes more or less as follows: the people who pay me say there's a link, and it sounds like something mommy would approve of. Therefore, the link is true and anyone who says otherwise is lying. --Kels (talk) 23:52, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Ken's lack of intellect[edit]

I think the much larger point with Ken's "daffy scientists swiftly rebuffedimg" MPR item is that the entire argument in the link he provides to the National Post is that people declaring "no religion" is meaningless and doesn't mean that they are atheist. As we all know, that runs exactly counter to the argument Ken and Andy make to say certain states are atheistic--and suffer problems for it--because they have a higher portion of people who declare "no religion". These guys change their arguments more frequently than a whore changes underwear. They'll argue anything that fits what they want to say in a particular moment. --Leotardo (talk) 13:55, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

One of the amusing things in that National Post article is that it makes a big thing that "about one-quarter of the 16% in the no religion category are under the age of fifteen; they are so-described by their parents." Surely even the most dimwitted god botherer must realise that means that the same is true about the 84% in the "religious" category? –SuspectedReplicant retire me 14:06, 30 March 2011 (UTC)


Yes indeed Andy. Why would a wiki encyclopaedia need a link to an actor? Or the Appian Wayimg for that matter? Or Australia's Nullabor Plain and Blue Mountains?img Could it be because there's nobody left to write those articles? The conversion of CP from enyclopaedia to blog, continues unabated. --PsyGremlinSermā! 12:59, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Blogs needs readers. cp no longer has any of those since they 403'd most of us. Oldusgitus (talk) 13:55, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Once they get to blocking Capturebot we're done for. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 14:31, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
That's always surprised me. If I was in Andy's position it's the first thing I'd try to block. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 14:37, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
but how does he know who to block?--Brxbrx (talk) 16:08, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I'd guess it's from the server logs - you can see which IP addresses are accessing the web server and block accordingly. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 16:26, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Please do not teach them how to block captureBOT. And for CP sysops, keep in mind that capturebot is the only way people get to read CP now. --Opcn (talk) 19:36, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

While Kajagoogoo struggles to make a funny evolution cartoon[edit]

A competent comics writer/artist shows it can be done. P-Foster (talk) 21:11, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

See, the operative word there is "competent". --Kels (talk) 23:46, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I seem to have 403'd[edit]

can anyone post the CP ban log please, that I might see why?--Brxbrx (talk) 05:11, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

Did you get the 403 message, or was it just down? Because it's been down again and again all freaking day, even from the proxy my last remaining sock edits from (which is based in newjersy). --Opcn (talk) 05:45, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Helpful link:

says I aren't allowed to access site, also, my tab says "403 error"--Brxbrx (talk) 05:53, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Suck, you probably got swept up in a range block to try and fix this DDoS shit. --Opcn (talk) 06:01, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Yep, it seems like they've 403ed most of the planet. My (unblocked, believe it or not) direction connection is 403ed, as are all of my usual proxies. (Oh, and btw Brxbrx, being 403ed is not the same as being blocked from editing the wiki, so it wont show up in the block log. you idiot) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 06:12, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
chaps, this website really does seem to be down now, doen't it. I hopes Anonymous has anything to do with this, as we are far to busy DDOS'ing RIAA, and Libyian government websites. heh. LordSlug 誇らしげに2008年からソファの上に手の平 06:09, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
(edit clash) Also, why is all the text blue??? LordSlug 誇らしげに2008年からソファの上に手の平 06:22, 29 March 2011 (UTC) EDIT: That fixed it
I'm now out as well. My home IP was 403'd (and has been for weeks) but I used tor if I really wanted some amusement at home. Tor stopped connecting this morning, generally with a 502 error. However my work IP has always been able to view cp but now can't. Can anyone explain how, if they are gradually 403'ing the entire world, assfly and anger bear can still genuinely think their silly little blog is growing and will continue to grow to become the wonderful educational resource they still seem to think it can be? Oldusgitus (talk) 07:46, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
okay, i just got both a 403 AND a 404 error in one.

Forbidden You don't have permission to access / on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

LordSlug 誇らしげに2008年からソファの上に手の平 07:50, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

That's just the standard error message for a web server that hasn't been configured properly. Immortalised here. Karajerk's post is really funny. Since we know he reads this site, he must realise that our way of mocking him are the alternative versions of his idiotic toons. It's not us doing the DDS, Angry Bear. So many people are put off right wing politics by your hate blog that no liberal would ever take it down. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 08:16, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I'll be sads if CP pulls a TK --Opcn (talk) 08:34, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Can anyone update what ranges are now 403 blocked? EddyP Great King! Disaster! 08:41, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I think it's still the same ranges (77, 80-82, 84-86). Certainly my two IP ranges outside that set still get access (when the site's up). The current problems aren't about range blocks - this is a DDoS attack. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 08:52, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I do not condone the DDoS (in fact it's pissing me off) but what can you expect when you try to excluded people on the internet?--Opcn (talk) 08:59, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I live in Arizona. Are you guys saying Conservepedia has blocked Arizona? Oh, and i got the same message lord slug got--Brxbrx (talk) 09:22, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
It's quite possible. Andy's simple-minded view of the Internet says that everybody with an IP address starting with those digits is an evil liberal. It's not that simple. Terry Chuckarse was 403'ed once, for instance. Go to this site and it'll tell you what your IP address is. If it doesn't start with one of those digits, CP has expanded its block range. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 09:29, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
my IP starts with 68--Brxbrx (talk) 09:30, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Wow. At this rate they'll 403 the whole world and end up sitting in their little castle, still desperately claiming that the site is growing rapidly. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 09:43, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Much of Europe is already 403'd is it not? If they have now also started on areas in the US then that is it for cp. It's over. Close the door, afix the padlock and throw the key away andy. Oldusgitus (talk) 10:02, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
He'll never shut it down. Even if it literally means blocking the entire planet from seeing it, he'll do that before turning off the server and like SR said, sit their and claim they are growing rapidly. SJ Debaser 10:17, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
My IP starts with 188 and has been 403'ed since they started 403ing. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 12:41, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
It seems the final seclusion of CP continues unabated. I'm now 403'd for the first time. It looks like we really are reaching the point where CP only remains available to a small part of the US - like the Bibbel Belt. Still, thank goodness for TOR.--PsyGremlinFale! 13:06, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
alexa ranking: I think this says there's been a 30% spike in traffic in the last seven days--Brxbrx (talk) 13:20, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
What's funny with this is that whilst a 403 block might be a good temporary measure against a DDoS, on CP the blocks will be until the entropy death of the universe, and thus CP will retreat to where it belongs - a stagnant little backwater of the intertubes. Goodbye Alexa ranking and all that goes with it. Hell, block the right IPs, goodbye Google ranking. --PsyGremlinTala! 14:11, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
For those of you who know and remember 2000AD here in the UK this is like the 4 dark judges. All crime is committed by the living therefore the ultimate crime is living. You are all judged and the penalty is death.
In this case all parody is carried out by users of the intertubes so the best way to prevent parody is to prevent editing by users of the intertubes. They tried restricting registration and this failed so they are now going to restrict viewing. Soon noone will be able to see their hate blog and the world, according to anger bear and the assfly, will be pure and VERY simple. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:22, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm and am 403'd. It's disappearing up its own fundament! DogP (talk) 15:43, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm not saying what mine is, but it's now 403'ed too. It looks like they really have blocked half the planet this time. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 15:49, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I'm a returning visitor to 403-Land, too. It's a pain to miss the idiocy insights and high-quality encyclopedia articles, but on the other hand, I wanted to be productive anyway, so not checking CP x times per day (and losing all faith in manking) would be a welcome development. --Sid (talk) 18:34, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Me too. They've even blocked my servers, which have 90.x.x.x addresses. I get the impression that now more people are blocked from CP than can view it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:33, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
It looks like there are at least 15 /8 blocks now out of 239 total (16 /8 blocks are multicast IP addresses). That would mean over 1/16 of the planet is blocked, and I dare say the actual figure is higher and we just haven't found the other numbers yet. Bye bye, CP. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 19:38, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, it works for me. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 19:39, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
I suspect whoever carried out the attack knew full well that Andy would block a huge number of IP ranges in response. (talk) 23:46, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Arbitrary Break[edit]

This xkcd map is five years old now but gives some rough idea of what they've probably blocked. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 19:42, 29 March 2011 (UTC)

It's my dearest wish that they've now blocked the googlebot. Imagine how Kendoll will cry. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:54, 29 March 2011 (UTC)
Today's IPv4 Internet is basically that, except all the green outside the top-right corner is either built on, or has a surveyor measuring for the foundations to be erected next week. The top-right corner probably shouldn't have been confusingly green grass in the original diagram, since there's no way to use any of that address space for Unicast IP addresses without a time machine. Ten points to anyone who gets Andy to ban either a class D or class E address. Fifty points if they get him to accidentally ban the entire Internet leaving him and other admins wondering why it's so quiet. (talk) 01:21, 30 March 2011 (UTC)


I can't take this anymore, I need cp (boy that sounds wrong)! someone please give me schlafly's email (preferably through the email user function- can't remember why I want it like that, but I had a good reason), maybe I can get him to make an exception for me--Brxbrx (talk) 05:56, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Here in Italy (IP starting with 213) I've been 403'd since I arrived in January, but maybe that's simply part of the blanket blocks targeted at Europe. άλφαTalk 07:57, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
They have now 403'd me at work as well. My work ip covers the entire european orgainsation, not just the UK based employees. Which suggests to me that they have simply decided to 403 almost everyone on the basis that if they do that then noone will laugh at them, enter parody, or ddos them. Bit of a bugger really as I don't have tor at work so I can't read their insanity until I get home now. Oldusgitus (talk) 08:13, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I've joined the 403 club! They've really gone to the deep end this time - they've blocked Finland! My my, this is going to throw a really big spanner in Ken's SEO. How can they flourish when they're ignoring such an important demographic! Don't the other Conservapedia sysops know know how big Conservapedia is in Finland??? --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 10:32, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Are the googlebots for each country's google ran locally from that country, or are they all on a central (probably US) server? DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 12:29, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Wasn't Google moving its servers to Iceland or something?  Lily Inspirate me. 15:46, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I think there's just one index, and the results are just weighted based on your location. Google does have datacenters and caches all over the world (Finland!), though, so they can serve queries fast in that particular area. And if they run bots locally, it'd only make sense if those bots crawled the geographical area (e.g. US bots looking at US sites). --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 08:50, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
Random addition: Yeah, just yesterday, I was wondering what would happen if they actually went and 403-blocked Googlebot. That would be fascinating. Also: in retrospect, it's probably not that surprising that my ISP is blocked. They saw "" in reverse lookup and went "Aaaaaaaa! Evilutionist!" =) --wwwwolf (barks/growls) 08:58, 31 March 2011 (UTC)


no go on schlafly's email? I really love cp...--Brxbrx (talk) 15:43, 30 March 2011 (UTC) DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 16:13, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Kara's New "Toon"[edit]

Oh dear. Once again, our favourite swabbie is stuck in a rut. Remember the 3 dozen evilution "cartoons" in a row, because he couldn't get his brain out of neutral? Now we're going to be lumped with a string of "PZ is fat." For all his faults, at least TK ad the sense to look at Ken's work and say, "WTF?" Peopeye, simpering goon that he is, just kneels in front of Ken and spreads his cheeks.

Now, Kara, let me make this perfectly clear: We're not outraged, or offended, by your "cartoon". We simply think it is a) not funny b) nonsensical (especially as you miss the point of PZ poking fun of the Creation Museum having dinosaurs in the first place) and c) you're pathetic for jumping on the idealogical bandwagon, when you have similar problems closer to home to deal with. Actually, scrap that - your pathetic hypocrisy outrages me. --PsyGremlinPrata! 09:42, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Can somebody upload a clean version? I haven't seen this latest shining example from the new Charles Schultz yet. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 09:56, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Here you go Until the parody versions start to appear. --PsyGremlinKhuluma! 10:14, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Thanks. That is without doubt the least coherent one yet. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 10:25, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
The "PeeZee's Big Adventure" being a pun on Pee Wee's Big Adventure is fairly funny, actually. But the fat joke is kinda lame. I know the word "lame" is itself lame, but sometimes no other word actually fits. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 10:47, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
No one else is outraged by this?! A retired Navy man, supposed to protect and serve his country, bullying a scientist and internet blogger!? I've half a mind to call the US Navy and let them know what one of their ex-servicemen is up to! Surely they must deplore this disgraceful behaviour!!! SJ Debaser 11:35, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Well, at least Kenny won't feel alone with his "Har har PZ is fat!" nonsense. Do you think Kara just thought "if you can't beat them, join them", or did he get brainwashed by the flying kitty? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 11:38, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
It's actually much, much simpler than that. Andy has defended and thus endorsed Ken's emissions, thus Karajerk, being the spineless lick-spittle that he is, must now leap aboard the Andy bandwagon and promote His Master's Voice in the way he knows best - rank stupidity and pig ignorance. Behind the scenes, of course, they still all ignore Ken. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 11:52, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
what happened at that museum, anyways?--Brxbrx (talk) 12:00, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
See here (you need to go right to the bottom to see the relevant pic.) --Scream!! (talk) 12:21, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

The PeeWee/PeeZee pun is about the funniest thing in the recent series of toons (and it's not that funny anyway). What we really see is the complete lack of creative talent at CP. They can only regurgitate the bile that they find on other wingnut blogs. Karajou has a bit of workmanlike art skills but doesn't have any wit or vision to do something with it. So Karajerk is just echoing Ken because he has no ideas of his own. The only people who have really attempted to inject any sort of aesthetic values, standards or organisation into "the project" have all been banhammered. The main page is a complete mess with the sysops just flinging their own handfuls of shit at it and not bothering to clean up afterwards. Do I see editors uploading their own photos (other than at Teabagger or March for Lite Conservatism rallies)? Diagrams and maps? Usually just copied from somewhere else. The shame of Conservapedia is that it is an assemblage of other people's work being passed of as an "educational resource". The original homeskollars have all fled and the current sysops are all engaged in political mudslinging. When I look at RationalWiki I see a lot of creativity; the main page is neat and concise, people care about categories and style, MediaWiki extensions, a diversity of opinions and a degree of camaraderie unrivalled by CP.  Lily Inspirate me. 12:31, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, best in a while, but it still sucks. I think Karajou is just attention whoring like Ken. Can you imagine how many liberals will be out to get poor Karagoogoo if PZ blogs about this? Karajou can. And he says "Bring it on". Occasionaluse (talk) 12:50, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

Speaking of machismo[edit]

I just read Umberto Eco's essay "Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt" (available here), and point number twelve reminded me of Conservapedia. See if you can guess why.

12. Since both permanent war and heroism are difficult games to play, the Ur-Fascist transfers his will to power to sexual matters.
This is the origin of machismo (which implies both disdain for women and intolerance and condemnation of nonstandard sexual habits, from chastity to homosexuality). Since even sex is a difficult game to play, the Ur-Fascist hero tends to play with weapons -- doing so becomes an ersatz phallic exercise.

The whole essay is interesting, and is almost uncanny in how much of Andy and Co. is describes. Highlights include:

  • "For Ur-Fascism, disagreement is treason..."
  • "Thus at the root of the Ur-Fascist psychology there is the obsession with a plot, possibly an international one. The followers must feel besieged."
  • "Most typical features of the historical fascism was the appeal to a frustrated middle class, a class suffering from an economic crisis or feelings of political humiliation, and frightened by the pressure of lower social groups." Doppelheuer (talk) 20:48, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Yes, but his son hasn't sown anything. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 14:04, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
No, but his father is part of a website that ridicules his son, and Karajou supports that indirectly at the least. The idea then that they should be upset that other people join in the ridicule is a little silly. They provide no example to say otherwise, and what they do encourages that behavior. --Leotardo (talk) 14:08, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

That someone else does this with "Fat Atheists are bad because they are fat" and turns that table around on Karajou is not unsurprising.

I'm in two minds about this one I'm afraid. When I first bumped into the linked article I almost posted a comment but decided not to because the kid did not ask for this. However his hypocritical wanker of a father DID ask for it and has taken great pleasure in attempting to mock people who are overweight. That he possibly has a member of his immediate family that may be overweight does have 'some' bearing on the discussion.
That being said I personally decided to leave the kid alone. The choices others make on this are for them to make however imo. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:35, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Wow. Fast U-turn from the tard. Having been called out as a vicious fuck I suppose it was the only way you could get out of it. At least you realised your attitude was a disgrace and reversed it.

Can someone tell us what the fuck is being discussed and what it has to do with Karajou? DickTurpis (talk) 14:39, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
A picture (since deleted) was published of a comment on Karajou's talk page that Andy oversighted. It contained a link to a YouTube video in which Karajou's son was present and unflattering comments on his physical appearance. While I'm fine with taking the piss out of the CP sysops, publicly exposing somebody's relatives like this has always been considered a no-no on this site. When the relative in question is a minor, it's definitely going too far. Leotardo disagrees. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 14:45, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

EC Background. what happens on that blog is of no concern to us, of course, but some troll got onto CP and started haranguing Anger Bear about his son. That's what the cap that Psy posted was all about. P-Foster (talk) 14:47, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

SR and Leo, if you're going to disagree, be civil. On the subject at hand, this one's very hard to call. RW policy is to leave the kids out of it, but in the context of his dad's bashing of PZ Myer's weight it's certainly relevant. IMO a private e-mail shaming Karajou would have been better. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 15:19, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I agree! It is SR who keeps devolving the discussion into name-calling. And my only point is that Karajou brought this upon his son. Not that it is okay, nor that we should support it. --Leotardo (talk) 15:26, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

HCM!!! YAY!!!! Occasionaluse (talk) 15:39, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

The most shocking revelation to my mind is that Karajou actually has a son. I can only pity the poor lad knowing that he has probably felt the sting of his father's belt on many an occasion, as Conservaleaks has shown that Karajou's preferred course of correction is physical punishment. If he's a little on the chubby side it's probably a reaction to being unloved at home as many overweight kids indulge in food for emotional comfort.  Lily Inspirate me. 15:41, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
Probably? You're now trying to assign probability on the reasons why a CP admin's child is overweight? What utter hubris. No better than Ken claiming that PZ Myers is overweight because he's an atheist. Jesus. Ajkgordon (talk) 10:56, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
In my opinion (not trying to maralise here - only my opinion) we should make fun of Karajou, the persona that posts at CP, blogs, etc. I don't know who Briand McDonalad is and have no opinion of him. By extension any mention of his family, photos, etc however public he may have made them, however legitimate, whatever he says about other people's family - it's a flat wrong. We shouldn't do it. We should be better than Karajou. StarFish (talk) 17:09, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

True, jazz is the handiwork of Satan. Per Henry Anslinger:
There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others.

I wonder what this will make Andy do now? Has a DDoS attack happened so often to CP before? Rationalize (talk) 15:48, 30 March 2011 (UTC)

I think they have, but this is probably the worst they've, and CP's reaction in blocking the world has been their most ott reply. There's some mention in Conservaleaks about DDoS attacks and 403 blocking. It seems Andy granted rights to sysops to do this, ion response to the attacks. I know Jpatt talks about creating 403 blocks and he didn't have those rights when I was a sysop. --PsyGremlinFale! 15:56, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I can't decide whether this is good or bad. The reaction will doubtless be more /8 blocks at the server level, which will reduce CP's readership even further... but that will raise the overall quality of right-wing material on the Internet. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 15:58, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
I want to mention - I think there's been a rash of DDoS attacks all over. I think I heard that a variety of government sites have been under attack for awhile (although that's probably a constant thing). My employer was under one for several weeks, and it was getting very annoying. They were attempting to hold the place ransom. The net effect of it was that it was difficult for us to handle any incoming or outgoing web traffic. Some of our important pages, like our method of reporting our timesheets, were down on the day that those were due. And we wound up blocking most of Africa from requesting our website. Sorry Andy, despite that your site is political in nature, DDoS attacks happen for the simple reason that it's profitable to do so. -Lardashe

And yes, Andy will have his cake and eat it, too: He'll get to bash liberals for trying to censor The Truth while at the same time boasting that CP has x million hits, which obviously means that lots of people are eager to listen to his insights.

Capture bot will not work on shorthand url's for cp. You need the whole url for it to captureimg correctly. The best way to do it for me is to click in the link, copy the 403'd url and then capture bot that instead. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:33, 30 March 2011 (UTC)
A think tank would be awesome, have people come in and speculate on conservative takes on various issues, kind of a wiki as forum deal with a clear ideological exploratory bent to it, rather than a documentational bent. The problem is that Andy has no business going within miles of a think tank, because a think tank need breathing room to function, and that is the one thing Andy refuses to allow. --Opcn (talk) 02:20, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

CP's entry point[edit]

Even if CP was actually attracting conservative readers, their "Popular articles" section on the main page, contains enough insanity, coupled with abysmal writing, to drive any half-sane prospective reader away. Besides Ken's emissions, you have all Andy's crazy toes on display "Greatest Conservative Songs" top of the heap, "Best new conservative words" "Conservative parables" (this really happened!), the CBP, Secularized Language, Evidence for Christianity (whatever that's supposed to be), Comedy and satires concerning atheism and evolution (oh dear), Professor values, Deliberate ignorance... What's surprising is that there's only 1 Liberal {noun} entry.

I think we'd be hard-pressed to find a better grouping of examples of CP's true crazy. --PsyGremlinSprich! 11:45, 31 March 2011 (UTC)

Plus there's the fact that basically no one talks about it apart from us, and the people who *do* talk about it are only doing so to laugh and mock. So the chances of anyone who hasn't heard of CP yet *and* would actually take part in CP properly even hearing about it (in a way that makes them want to go there) in the first place are pretty low. X Stickman (talk) 12:10, 31 March 2011 (UTC)
If I remember rightly, I think it was JAllen who started the Popular Articles section and the list was a reflection of the most viewed pages. However, the Mad Five/Six/Seven took it upon themselves to linkdump their own pet articles and remove the ones that were getting the hits. (As a matter of record, Law Terms D was never included in the list.) So the current list is not a list of "popular" articles, it's a list of articles that they want to plug; which, as you say, is actually a better reflection of the crazy.

Old mama schlafly and her truely xian values[edit]

Like twisting the 9th commandment. Perhaps this goes some way to explaining assfly's screwed up world view. Not only an extremist harridan for a mother but one who didn't even raise her kids but employed nannies to look after them Oldusgitus (talk) 07:52, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

That's so typical of the Schlafly family's hypocrisy - advocate that women should stay at home and be breeding machines, whilst Mama S is out working, leaving the kids with a nanny - who might even have been an illegal immigrant. Advocate home-schooling over state schools (saying public schools always confuses the Brits), but send your kids to private schools. (Indecently, it says somewhere that Andy was home-schooled until age 7. I'd that pretty much all kids are home-schooled to that age. Hell, our formal schooling here only begins the year you turn 7. Then again, I'm guessing she kept Andy out of nasty, liberal kindergarten during his formative years, which explains why he has the social skills of a doorknob.) Now wonder the brothers grew up so horribly conflicted, having to live to one set of standards, while they and their mother advocated an entirely different set. Adds to that growing up listening to the sounds of mummy and daddy having a "communication problem" every other night... no wonder they're all fucked in the head. --PsyGremlinParlez! 09:42, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
I've always had the feeling that Andy's extreme conservatism (and thus Conservapedia) stemmed from him trying to get his absent mother's attention. 'Mommy, if I'm as batshit as you will you come home?!' --Night Jaguar (talk) 10:55, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Just to play Devil's Advocate for a moment -- Phyllis Schlafly has been asked "what do you mean saying women should stay home when you're made a career as a traveling speaker?" Her response has been that she came home when her husband told her to do so. MDB (talk) 12:26, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
That just goes to show where she is coming from; her ultimate agenda being, not to get women to be homemakers, but to institute an absolute-patriarchal state of affairs. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 15:14, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
But just like Andy (and now we know where it comes from) she's awfully good at blithely making very strong claims without the least factual support and then simply telling her discussant she's wrong when questioned. The brief Title IX discussion in the NPR clip linked above is a great example. I'm actually very curious, in fact more curious than about Andy, what Phyllis Schlafly's real agenda is. Is it a common pre-Vatican II Catholic position that women should not just bow to but promote a patriarchy? Is her position biblical at all or borne of some other psychological trauma she suffered. Odd stuff. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 15:57, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Catholics were not known for a marked promotion of patriarchy, even pre-Vatican II; I have an old book, written by a Monsignor and bearing the imprimatur of Francis Cardinal Spellman, that says, "good riddance to the days when the man was Lord and Master." Although she grew up a Catholic, Mrs. Schlafly is of an old Calvinist family, and Calvinists are known for their strong support of patriarchy. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 16:09, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Interesting. So they're nominally Catholic but retain at least some of the old Calvinist beliefs. Andy's approach to some of the fundamental requirements of Catholic faith, like recognizing certain miracles, which he wishes to characterize as "signs" and give naturalistic explanations, would agree with your analysis. We've discussed whether certain of his beliefs are merely heretical or the degree to which his denial of fundamental tenets of faith would render him apostate. I believe from our Haiti/charity coverage that we came to the conclusion he goes to a Puritan church, which puts him squarely in the English Separatist Calvinist movement at least for weekly church attendance (or however often he attends - I frankly doubt he's a very observant worshiper since he has a near- universal predilection for refusing to recognize anyone's authority but whatevs). So even if he's ostensibly Catholic there's a lot more to his approach than meets the eye, like that he seems to still do saint worship but is also perfectly happy rejecting anything but ex cathedra pronouncements, of which there have been only a few in 500 years. I'd like to understand more about his faith since he's not your typical limited atonement Calvinist fundie yet treats them as co-travelers.

American culture borrows a lot of Calvinist tropes. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 16:57, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
American mainstream culture is itself pretty much a direct descendant of the original Calvinist puritans that washed ashore upon Plymouth Rock. Shocking as it may sound, I think most conservatives are really just (admittedly sometimes severely) outdated liberals at times. The most serious ideological, and indeed truly conservative -- nay, reactionary -- opposition in the USA died out in the 1860's in the civil war, although that was obviously a good thing. I never thought it was a coincidence a lot of conservatives, including Andy, largely picked up these Americanist/Calvinist tropes for their own utopian purposes. Indeed, it only more than a century or so ago the pope was decrying "Americanism" for this sort of thing. While I'm on this topic: it's interesting that RW itself notes most American histories get as fast as they can to Plymouth, even ignoring the other, earlier English colony of Jamestown. One last bit while I'm rambling here: The Conservative Bible Project? It's not exactly shocking in retrospect to see it's an attempt to graft Andy's true religion of Republican Reaganism -- itself a variant of the American city-upon-a-hill utopian idea -- onto the bible. Photovoltaic Array (talk) 18:30, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
I would not draw such broad strokes; that analysis, itself, is going right to Plymouth (New England Puritans) and ignoring Jamestown (Southern Baptists and Methodists). In the Jesusland Map, the chief "blue" areas are the Midwest (where Germans and Scandinavians got the land and swamped the Yankees culturally), and formerly Puritan New England; the Bible Belt is in the areas where Puritanism was not strong, but evangelical and charismatic sects were. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 20:04, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
You know, I'm wondering just how... messed up the Schlafly family really is. (Phyllis and children. The brewer branch of the family seems to be doing well enough.) Phyllis endorsing marital rape? It's nastier in the context of remembering she married an older, more well-off and socially conservative man. (She started her far-right wing work after marriage, after all.) We know a lot of their public fighting ultimately stems from insane creationism and religious belief: a lot of her anti-ERA fighting back in the day was at least partially motivated out of a fear of gay rights and equality, and Andy had to get his bible-loving from somewhere. And now we find out the woman who put down "mother" as her occupation had nannies for her kids. I remember speaking with an ex-editor at Conservapedia who wondered out loud if Andy's sheer hatred of public schools stem from a sort of jealousy at being denied a normal youth and finding out these little factoids don't help in dispelling that whatsoever. (Andy went to a private school. I did as well, I can attest it was a horrific experience and was probably worse back then.) The Schlaflys quite frankly helped to make America -- and the world -- a little worse for the wear and we all know this. But even Andy never had the far-reaching influence his mother had. The more we find out about Phyllis Schlafly's life I wonder how much of all of this crap ultimately stems from bad decision-making and possibly even desperation early on in her own life so many decades ago. Photovoltaic Array (talk) 12:27, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Children are always the mixture of two different (mostly) lineages. So we should not tar the male line of Andy's family tree. I've no idea what his dad was like but his mother seems to be the wacko one with her lost tribe of Israel heritage. Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you. 15:21, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
You're probably right, especially given the whole point was that Phyllis did go out and do her own thing (and to protest women against doing the same). Although it's precisely because of what you said regarding the mixing of parental lineages that I was wondering how much of a role Andy's dad might have played in his life or that of his mother. It's just becoming sadly obvious none of them led any sort of ideal life, even with power, money, and (right-wing) prestige. Photovoltaic Array (talk) 18:30, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

Andy is the biggest moron. Obama released his birth certificate almost 3 years ago. CP is actually most accurate on April Fool's Day. --Night Jaguar (talk) 13:36, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
Obama released the document that the state generated, the document you would use for literally any and all official purposes, he did not release the doctor generated document that is in essence only a request for the state generated document and by law must say the same thing as the state generated document. --Opcn (talk) 16:06, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Taking this serious for a moment, the birthers will never be satisfied. No matter what Obama releases, no matter how much documentation he provides, they will still flog this issue. Orly Taitz has even said that if Obama proved he was born in Hawaii to her satisfaction (at if that was possible), she plans to go down the "Obama's father wasn't a citizen so he's not a natural-born citizen" route. Which is one of the reasons I think Obama isn't providing anything more -- it will only encourage them. MDB (talk) 16:23, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

If Obama somehow found and released a copy of his "long form" birth certificate, no birthers would believe it. Why did he wait so long? (lol, like he couldn't have had one faked in an instant) The doctor who delivered him has since died! (like that would confirm anything anyway) Occasionaluse (talk) 16:34, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
That's one of the birther demands that always amused me, wanting someone who was present at Obama's birth to come forwards. Considering Obama was born in 1961, most of the people present are probably dead. And even the ones who are alive -- they're supposed to be able to remember one specific birth? You might be able to argue he was an unusual birth, considering he was an interracial baby in a time when that was still somewhat shocking, but even then, it seems unlikely any of the hospital staff could say conclusively that they were there. MDB (talk) 17:06, 1 April 2011 (UTC)
This conspiracy goes far deeper. His birth announcement was published in two Hawaiian newspapers. His parents must have given false information to the two newspapers knowing that Obama would run for president 40 years later. --Night Jaguar (talk) 20:44, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

My humble attempt

So I was wondering if there was an easier way to convey Karajerk's thoughts. And here's my effort. Succinct and to the point. Sadly, our favourite swabbie tries to cram too much of his impotent rage in to each scribble and thus loses the plot. Hey Karajou - here's a tip - less is more. This is doubly ironic coming from the man who compares his meandering scrawls to the punchy, single-panel cartoons of Thomas Nast. (Clearly Andy's delusions are catching). --PsyGremlin講話 09:45, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

Ddefinitely better. Karajou complete over-explained his joke to the point where it was a pleasure to have finished reading the thing. The boy desperately needs a writer, and the willingness to spend more than two minutes drawing a cartoon. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 09:51, 3 April 2011 (UTC)
Much better. It reminds me of an interview I read with... it could have been Neil Gaiman or Alan Moore. They pointed out that much of the art of a good comic is not including the main detail. Whoever it was gave an example. Panel 1: Murderer creeping up on unsuspecting victim. Panel 2: Axe glints in the moonlight. Panel 3: Shot over the rooftops with an "Aieeeeee!" speech bubble and nothing else. In that scenario, it's actually the reader who does the murder, not the writer. Karajerk would have the murderer saying "Now I'm going to murder you. Ha ha ha ha!" and the victim saying something like "Oh no! But I am a poor defenseless person!" He has no clue at all. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 10:06, 3 April 2011 (UTC)

The point about too much detail in his toons has been made before (by me?). Like the "liberal celebrities", "liberal Christmas", "courtroom evolution", et cetera, ad nauseam; he tries to cram in every stereotype that he can think of, either in the drawings or in the text. It's exactly the same mistake that I made when I did some safety cartoons as a naive teenager. As soon as I saw them printed I realised my mistake. The problem is that these guys don't do subtlety, nuance or allegory; they are some of the bluntest knives in the drawer and because of that they read their Bibull in a literal fashion. Stories such as the young Christian Einstein outsmarting his professor repeatedly hit you over the head with the point because that's the only way these morons can understand anything in any other way. It's why it's so easy to mock them and the parody at CP still exists, they are too dense to see it. Even when I pointed out the 'Exxon-Mobil executive pay' in the George W. Bush article to Stephanie Simon and she printed it in the L.A. Times it took many weeks for them to finally remove it. Even Ken rehashes the same jokes over and over again and thinks it funny. No, I don't think we can expect any improvement in the quality of the toons in the foreseeable future, which at least gives us some fun in the 'Making Karajou funny' forum.

Is the DDOS attack the liberal censorship he's referring to?

TCOB by BTO is my favorite. Andy defended it, claiming it championed self-employment (specifically the kind where you "work at nothing all day"). The funny thing is, I can see how Andy thinks he relates to that. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:52, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
Because people fail to actually listen to the lyrics of any song that mentions "red white and blue" and automatically assume it's "patriotic." See "Born in the USA" by Bruce Springsteen or "Fortunate Son" by CCR.
I also love the wingnut co-opting of Orwell because he was anti-commie. And how Orwell is presented as a conservative luminary beside the Founding Fathers, Milton Friedman, and...Sarah Palin. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 21:01, 4 April 2011 (UTC)
I had started a 4chan thread urging vandalism a few weeks back. Little came of it, except for one user who added a song by the band "Wumpscut." Sadly, another cp user, I think MartyP, Max Fletcher, or DennyW66 caught it and exposed it for CP street cred.--Brxbrx (talk) 21:25, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

The thing about Andy (and many conservatives who compile lists of "greatest conservative [blank]"), is that he's incapable of distinguishing behaviour or sentiments he agrees with from his ideology. He truly believes all goodness is "conservative" and all evil is "liberal". I am not exaggerating at all. There are no inbetweens or neutral topics.

That's not fair and you now it. Obama has to work within the system he finds himself, not in some dream state that you would like. He can't magically make wars disappear, nor can he make the senate do everything he wants without some negotiation. Do you think Mitt Romney would better advance your agenda? --DamoHi 02:14, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
What part of anything I just said advocated a republican. I voted democrat, I have a right to expect him to ACT like a democrat. The fact is, he hadan entire year with a filibuster proof senate, theres alot he could have gotten done. But if you had read my rant, he's giving this stuff up WITHOUT negotiations. And lets not forget he has a presidential veto, he could easily tell republicans to back off the middle class, tax those making 100G+ a year (or 250G+ familys), go after a bloated defence budget rather then npr and planned parenthood, which despite what the right believes, does not give out tax payer funded abortions like candy, but rather uses the money for things like breast cancer screanings. If it comes down to obama and a conservative, i'll still vote obama, but I have a right to be pissed if he acts like a republican president.--Thunderstruck (talk) 03:01, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Oh boy, this looks like an O-bot vs. Firebagger thread on Balloon Juice already. Obama did have to compromise on the legislative side, but his cabinet and advisory picks (Turbotax Tim Geithner, Bob Rubin, Larry Summers, reappointing Bernanke, shitcanning Paul Volcker, etc.), his escalation of Afghanistan and continuing detainment policies show his true colors. Of course, I'd love to see a Mike Gravel or Russ Feingold in the White House (and hell would surely freeze over). However, running someone against your incumbent is pretty much political suicide. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 03:19, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
There is a difference between saying you are dissatisfied with Obama and saying that you hope an independent runs against him (which will increase the chances of a republican winning). I think you are being unfair on Obama re the tax cuts and many of the other legislative changes you wished he would make. Just because the democrats had a majority in the senate doesn't mean they would all vote for his policies. Were this a westminister style system I could understand you a little better but I think that you are overestimating the power of a president. --DamoHi 03:44, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Politics is the art of the possible. I see a lot of people take highly principled stands thinking that they're own man is not socialist/conservative enough and they would gain more votes by being more extreme. The majority of the electorate are usually in the middle and as the herd makes a slight move to the left or right then the balance of power changes sides. If you want long-term change you have to adopt a long-term strategy and take people with you a small step at a time because you need to change the underlying values and perceptions of the populace at large and that is like trying to turn round an oil tanker.  Lily Inspirate me. 09:11, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Damo, there is a difference between wanting a primary challange to obama, and hoping someone runs on the independant ticket. And I also realize that the president dosn't have sole power over the country, thats what the checks and balances are for. But since the 2010 elections, when republicans took the HOUSE ONLY, its like the country is back to being run by republicans, because obama wont stand up to republicans, and demand they make they're "drastic cuts" on the backs of defence contractors and oil companys rather then the middle class.--Thunderstruck (talk) 11:14, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Ken's recent drivel[edit]

So now that Ken has returned from his 90-day sabbatical he's creating pages on wacko creationistsimg. Do they all enroll in Google SEO courses? Because Dr. Grady S. McMurtry also seems unable to use personal pronouns and repeats his name ten times on his home page (excluding title and external links). — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs 10:53, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Hmmm, so how long until Dr McTurdy mentions that he "stumbled" along the fact that atheists are obese? --PsyGremlinSiarad! 11:29, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

What the heck does "save a remnant mean?" It sounds suspiciously like "the bible is true because the bible says it's true and the evidence of the bible's truth is in the bible." Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:53, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
I love that "Dr" (of Divinity - lol) McTurdy, in the very first words of his biography, writes "A life member of Mensa International..." Does he really think Mensa membership automatically gives credibility to anyone? Mensa is kind of a joke - I would never tell people if I joined in the same way I would not go around telling people I watch porn. People who join Mensa are usually douchebags who think their Mensa membership bestows upon them another layer of respectability, and it really just says "I'm a douchebag who needs some way to convey that I am smart." --Leotardo (talk) 17:12, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Ken claims that he was an evolutionist for 20 years (and a theistic evolutionist for 1.5 years - WTF?) but has now been a creationist for 27 years. There's nothing on the page Ken linked to but the CreationWrongView website says he taught evolution for 10 years and has been a Creationist for 35 years (get your facts right Ken). I love how these cretinists like to claim their earlier 'Evolutionist' credentials so that it gives greater weight to their conversion.  Lily Inspirate me. 17:41, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

McMurty is an example of intelligence being no bar to ignorance and silliness. For someone of his learning it must be willful ignorance at that. Creationism, honestly! What kind of adult believes that shit? Mensa - Life Member of Mensa. Yup, well done Dr. You passed the test, which is actually commendable, but the whole "life" thing appears based on the type of membership you were willing to pay for. It's not as if this life membership was magically bestowed for outstanding achievement in the field of excellence; life member just sounds better than Mensa member (subscription reviewed annually by direct debit)Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 21:23, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

This will end badly[edit]

AugustO's days are numbered, as he keeps poking Andy about his (Andy's) bullshit translation of the Bible. Especially good: "I checked a couple of dictonaries and failed to find at the moment as a translation of ἰδού. Could you hint me to your source?"img (Hint - this will be thrown out because of the clumsy "Could you hint me to your source?") And hereimg - still carrying on about the whole 1 o'clock thing. There's no way Andy's going to allow pesky factual accuracy in his Bible. --PsyGremlin말하십시오 15:28, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I love his suggestion of an Andy-commented bible. It'll be a shame when Andy ignores all those bullet points. ~ Kupochama[1][2] 15:36, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
If Andy has written a conservative commentary on the Bible, as opposed to actually attempting a full-scale translation -- well, it would still be tripe, because it's Andy. But I doubt it would have received the across-the-board scorn it did. It would have probably been ignored outside of RationalWiki. MDB (talk) 16:10, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
This makes me wonder what Andy's Crazy of the Year 2011 will be. We've had Lenski, we've had the CBP, what stunt will he pull this year to garner some (unfavourable) press for CP? Maybe he'll take Conservapedia's Law and his best new words public? --PsyGremlinParlez! 16:17, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
A legitimate "conservative" commentary on the bible is a legitimate endeavor. Andy's no up to it nor is he really a conservative in any traditional sense. He also has no Greek, ergo he fails whenever he lays his grubby paws on the project. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svgUser:Nutty Roux/sigtalk 16:19, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Andy doesn't need Greek. He has the Best of the Public in the form of translation sites in the Internet. Knowledge of obscure languages is how liberal elites maintain their position in publicly-funded ivory towers. Deny this and lose all credibility. P-Foster (talk) 16:44, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
He tries using the internet concordance and Greek lexicon I showed him as a sock a long time ago but since he can't decline or conjugate, let alone actually pronounce what he's cutting and pasting, he ends up copy/pasting the undeclined/infinitive form of a word from an online concordance into an online dictionary and seeing if he agrees with the definition. If he doesn't, CBP time with hilarity ensuing with his anachronistic/politicized/batshitcrazy justifications for a particular definition that meets his "conservative" requirements. Win.

Opcn, I've read your contributions and it's clear you deny the very real existence of Hell. You must realise that translating the perfect Conservative Bible back into Greek would lose the modern subtleties of language, such as it being okay to be rich, fuck your daughters and keep slaves. Open your mind! –SuspectedReplicant retire me 22:24, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Opcn also fails to realize that only modern English (to be more precise, modern American English) is capable of expressing the powerful (and conservative) concepts in the Bible. Open your mind and realize Ancient Greek can't express the Bible. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 22:47, 5 April 2011 (UTC)
Now that he's gotten bored with the CBP, I hope Andy begins a Conservative English Dictionary Project. He has in the past taken an interest in linguistics, redefined words and has claimed that the dictionary is wrong. Or maybe a Conservative Constitution Project, which rids the US Constitution of all that liberal bias. Parodists, start pushing Schlafly into either direction! --Night Jaguar (talk) 02:36, 6 April 2011 (UTC)

Ed continues his longstanding war on women[edit]

I feel sorry for his wife and daughters. More so than for just knowing they were Moonies. Can you imagine having a father who honestly thought your gender made you an inferior being?

His comment on the talk page for Ada Lovelace suggests he isn't mysoginistic, no, really he isn't:
Lots of people want to credit her with having written the first computer program or being the first computer programmer, but I think that honor should go to a different person ... possibly also a woman, by the way.

Rationalize, I think I read somewhere that his church (Moonie) had a very strong hand in the marriage and generally arrange marriages for members. I could be wrong though, and there's probably some here who know more about it than me. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 22:53, 4 April 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── I just did my regular "What are the morons doing?" check on CP, and judging by some of 188's edits ([2][3][4][5]) the Ada Lovelace thing seems aimed less at getting woman back into the kitchen and more about flying the Stars and Stripes: he's pushing Grace Hopper as the first programmer instead. –SuspectedReplicant retire me 12:47, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

I don't think that this has been commented on other than in relation to the DDoS attack, but MPL trumpets Conservapedia has broken its March record for the number of unique visitorsimg. Now does that mean that they had more unique visitors in March 2011 compared with March 2010, 2009, 2008 or 2007 but have still not broken their all-time monthly record?
