What the fuck is Ken doing?[edit]

This made me laugh though.img - π Moderator 14:36, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

He's trying to block everyone who ever dared to speak out against him, only he's too stupid to actually block them. Once again Kendoll expresses his contempt for Rob's efforts to civilise CP. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:40, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Rob is making progress. Rob is making progress. Rob is making progress. Rob is making progress. Rob is making progress... Just keep saying it. Occasionaluse (talk) 14:44, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I think the Coue method only works on yourself.--User:Brxbrx/sig 15:05, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Tracysimg calls him out on it. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:08, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
And as was pointed out here yesterday (I think) the more andy bores of his little toy, the more kendoll will run the place, or is that ruin? eh, same ol.--Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 15:14, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Also, something happenedimg on the talk page of Ken's little revenge article, "Newark Star-Ledger". He made three contribs, then deleted the entire thing, all in the space of two minutes. Man, good thing that Rob is making progress and that without TK, a whole new era has begun on CP! Olé! --Sid (talk) 15:19, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Hasn't Rob said he's Catholic? Johnny Sedition? Catholic. Joaquin? Catholic? Andy? Heretical Catholic, raised traditionally. How the fuck is Ken able to get away with saying that stuff about the Catholic church? Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:22, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Sorry, I don't know why I was asking a sensible question. At least when it comes to Rob we already know he's such a dickless toady that it's all good as long as it's in service of greasing the wheels of the CP propaganda machine. Nice response to that Nate though Rob. You're a class act. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:29, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Wow, Rob hauls out a debating tactic not seen for a while (but a fav of TK and Kajagoogoo IIRC) - the old "show me where else you've bitched about this before I believe you" - happily ignoring the fact that the complaint is about Conservapedia's handing of the subject. But yes, Rob really let his class shine through there. Maybe they should hand over management of the portal to cuddly Ed Poor. --PsyGremlinSnakk! 15:46, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I just went back and looked at that guy's question. Are you going to address it on the merits? Is Andy? Or are you going to let Ken laugh at an editor for asking someone to curb Ken's abuses? The guy asked for his account to be closed if you guys aren't going to do anything about it, which I guess mean he wants to be blocked. Surely you'll at least oblige him a proper blocking after Ken unpersoned him. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:58, 11 July 2011 (UTC)


Rob steps in to unarchive everything, but _still_ doesn't censure kendoll at all. Jesus wept, Rob. Could you be any more pathetic than to keep letting him steamroll you? Aren't you ever going to say _anything_ about it? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:10, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

rotfl, Rob just unprotected ken's talk page. This should be good... Occasionaluse (talk) 19:11, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
on the page that was just reopened, i found this line by Kenny boy. ""Shockofgod thinks the Question evolution! campaign will cause the Atheist Population to be 1/2 squeak in the United States population." " This one line alone made your link so amusing - much less the lulz that will arise from the passive AGness. --Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 19:24, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Respect where it is due to Rob for the edit comment on thisimg. You earn a few internets for that comment if for nothing else Rob. And a grudging respect from me as well. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:38, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
And for restoring NKeaton and bobshearman. Once again, respect is due Rob. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:39, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Ken hasn't edited in nearly 12 hours. Considering the mutiny against him, should we be worried? Occasionaluse (talk) 19:41, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I'll join the current round of applause. Rob, if you manage to go through with this,img I will be thoroughly impressed. --Sid (talk) 19:48, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
+1 Mountain Blue (talk) 19:50, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I will go further. I'll de sock, which incidentally I have never edited using the sock, and contribute. I am a terminal liberal but as I have said before I see nothing wrong with the idea of a conservative leaning wiki. It's the insanity of ken and some others I have issues with. And more internets for the moving of the idiots 'comedies and satires' drivvel. Oldusgitus (talk) 19:54, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I'm taking the "nobs/Obama" route and declaring anything Rob does as teh evil. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:57, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
He restores deleted userpages and talk pagesimg and moves the satire were it belongs (if we're generous)img. Rob, I wich you the best with this. All you need are a few sysops in arms and Ken will get a spanking. But I think Rob might get blocked if nobody joins him.
"Do Not Delete Mainspace Discussion Pagers!" should be meme from now on. Does it beep in Ken's head whenever somebody edits them? --ʤɱ heretic 20:22, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Is Ken going to bitch slap Rob back, or take it lying down? --Night Jaguar (talk) 20:45, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
UHM, what he needs is not the support of other sysops (though it wouldn't exactly hurt), but rather Andy's ear. As long as Andy doesn't pay attention, Ken can and will simply ignore all rules he doesn't agree with. --Sid (talk) 20:54, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, but I mean that the other sysops also saying "Ken can't behave like this" would make Andy stop singing "Lalala, I can't hear you!". You have to consider that this is about the guy who made up "best of the public", not some normal person you can argue with. --ʤɱ heretic 21:00, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
(EC)Hooooooleeeeee sheeeeet. It's good to see someone bitchslap kenservative up and down the wiki. Slap.gif--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 21:03, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

"Restoring proper version which User:Conservative thoroughly screwed up" --> hehehe --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:36, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Heh, that's the kind of bitch slapping that'll cause a 90 day sabbatical. I wonder how long it'll take kendoll to get over it and get back to deleting, blocking and creating "essays"? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:48, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
You better watch out, Rob. Ken might talk bad about you six months after you're deadimg. --Night Jaguar (talk) 22:59, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
Jeeves called it. "pursuing other projects off-wiki"img --Willfully Wrong (talk) 23:36, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Ken's back...[edit]

And his first move was to delete and recreate his talk page. This should be fun. --Inquisitor (talk) 23:19, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

Kendoll's now employing his ace in the hole, that the Arsefly just doesn't give a fuck about anything that goes on on his wiki. He's really learned at the feet of the troll king himself. You can get away with anything by relying on the apathy of Andy. The best counter to this strategy is to behave like you own on the wiki and lay the smackdown on him hard with his next infraction. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:32, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
100 bucks say he didn't even read what Rob wrote.img --ʤɱ heretic 23:37, 11 July 2011 (UTC)
I often wonder if Kendoll can read what people write. His replies are never on point. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:21, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

TL;DR version of the events covered in this section. --Sid (talk) 23:53, 11 July 2011 (UTC)

And Rob continues the attackimg:
"Airing our dirty laundry in public is necessary bacause you constantly shut down discussions among users. If you don't like what they say, fine. Don't read it. Go elsewhere. Ignore them. Stop these endless reprisals against anyone you imagine you don't like."
*grabs popcorn* --Night Jaguar (talk) 00:30, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Not bad noby, not bad. Spellcheck won't kill ya, but not bad.--Thunderstruck (talk) 00:52, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Rob get a backbone implant or something? Mountain Blue (talk) 01:06, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I think we encouraged him. This is a good thing though, Ken is a huge reason why I don't bother with Conservapedia. Andy can be avoided, so can KJ (mostly). Ken seeks out people and bans. I hate that I have to say this, but good job Rob. Senator Harrison (talk) 01:31, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I think our encouragement helped, but read his first paragraph of the reply to Ken carefully: "one sysop can't play nice with others" + "insists on chasing away editors" = TK. Looks like Rob finally realized that TK's death didn't magically fix everything and that other people are going to follow the "As long as Andy doesn't actively interfere, I can do anything I want!" mentality unless he manages to change the system and implement at least some sort of sysop accountability (something we have been calling for since, uh... early 2007). --Sid (talk) 01:38, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Me too, Sid. And if you read Conservaleaks, you'd know that. So after you called for sysop accountability, you created RW run by a mobocracy. And it's only taken 4 years to give moral authority to immoral atheists. Damn this makes perfect sense and gets more interesting all the time. nobsViva la Revolución! 03:04, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Did Ken just pull that "I'm going to be busy off wiki... yeah... that's the ticket" move again? On Rob? Is that his default excuse for things like this? Even he must realise how utterly stupid that sounds, and how obviously wrong it is. And how provably wrong it is. X Stickman (talk) 02:10, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Translation: "Im losing, so im gonna back out with my tail between my legs".--Thunderstruck (talk) 02:41, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
And Ken burns,img and protectsimg his talk page. Then he moves over to Rob's talk pageimg Ken also responded on his own talk page somewhere in there. Mr. Swift (talk) 03:29, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
AND ROBBY COMES IN WITH A BIG LEFT HOOK TO THE JAW.img--Thunderstruck (talk) 03:50, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Which BIG LEFT HOOK Ken of course BURNS. As I said Rob, respect is due for this and I for one give it to you. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:02, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Holy shit, this is amazing. I wonder how much longer Andy can afford to stay on the sidelines? When you've got two admins at each other's throats in public, even the most casual reader will be able to see what's beneath CP's monolithic facade, so there's no point in pretending it's still business as usual. If he doesn't intervene, one of the remaining inner circle members will have to rein Ken in. Terry is busy with his own blog, so that leaves Ed or Karajou. Neither is known for being reasonable or responsive to the cries of lesser editors, but they don't like Ken either, and must've realized that he's doing serious damage to the wiki. Let's see where this will go. Röstigraben (talk) 09:13, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Honestly, Andy will do nothing. All the time TK and I were bickering at each other over there - both on CP and in the ZB, Andy never said a word. He only took action when I messed with his precious "liberal vandalism" block reason, and threw in "fighting with admins" as an after thought, thanks to Ed Poor sticking a knife in my back. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 09:35, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
With Ken once again doing the burn/recreate/protect routine of his user talk page (quietly erasing the entire discussion Rob started!) and dragging Rob into private mail business,img it really looks like Ken is (successfully) banking on Andy's laziness. Sorry, Rob, but you are currently experiencing the reason why CP is doomed to fail, despite your promises of a new era: Andy doesn't give a shit about sysops openly breaking all rules as long as they say what he wants to hear. --Sid (talk) 10:34, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
More Ken: No, I never said that!img --PsyGremlin講話 11:20, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Is Rob really going to take this kind of disrespect from Kendoll? It's some wiki where a madman gets to act like a made man just because he's uploaded a few flying kitty gifs. Seriously Rob, it's time to inflict some real consequences on him, or he'll just keep going and going. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 12:12, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Yeah, if Andy keeps aloof and sysops are free to do as they please, then why shouldn't Rob take advantage of the same liberties? Slap him with a minor block, "trim" his crap from the mainpage, make his oversighted edits visible again. Two can play that game. Röstigraben (talk) 12:29, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

IIRC "ignoring instruction from an administrator" is still a blockable offence. Drop the banhammer on him Rob! That'll wake him up, when he can't edit his precious articles... well, until he figures out how to unblock himself. --PsyGremlinHable! 12:36, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Randomly related: Are you prepared to laugh? Rob is Admin/SiteAdmin/CheckUserimg while Ken is Admin/SiteAdmin/CheckUser/Oversighterimg - yep, in an actual surprise (to me), Rob does not have Oversight powers. That being said, it'd be kinda funny if somebody restored all revisions of the Evolution article (though this would likely make the database spaz epically). --Sid (talk) 12:37, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh! Oh! I know how to settle this! Call in the conservapedia panel! --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:15, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
ROFL! Just checked Captcha-whatcha-ma-callit links. NKeaton:: You deleted my user and talkpages! Why?! and then, 13 hours later... Ken: *WHINE* My talk page is my castle! There you go Rob, I just gave you a fresh ammo clip to reload with. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 13:35, 12 July 2011 (UTC)


Rob, you should really use a spell-checker! Otherwise if Andy gets involved he will only make snide remarks on your spelling. And Ken gets his spelling always right - after 100 revisions or so... larronsicut fur in nocte 07:27, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

To be fair, Ken doesn't have too many problems with spelling other than the odd typo which anyone could make. His problem is mainly with phrasing which is the linguistic equivalent of squeaky chalk on a blackboard.

Oversight - the new Preview button[edit]

Nothing new here, but Ken's really abusing Oversight, and here's a fresh example:

Three edits, and only the last one remains visible. So what was this complicated message that required three edits and two oversightings? "I prefer it the way I have it now."img --Sid (talk) 12:44, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

The really fun/scary part is that he's most likely only doing it, to try and beat Capturebot. Ken takes paranoia o scary new places. Dance for us, little man! Dance for us! --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 13:02, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Four more edits, four more oversightings:

Current message:img

I prefer it the way I have it now. Please attend to more important matters than how others design their talk pages. It seems to me you are trying to pick a fight over a trivial matter. I base this on your previous comments to me and the tone of your post here. I would also suggest you refrain from trying to picking other fights with me. If you have any further commentary, please direct it elsewhere as I not willing to wrangle with someone who I believe is contentious. Thank you.

Man, Ken's really writing himself into a frenzy here... --Sid (talk) 12:59, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Wait... "I not willing to wrangle with someone who I believe is contentious." but... but... isn't that the very nature of all these debates that Ken supposedly wins. Unless Ken's debates involve him standing in front of a mirror, yelling "Atheists are fat!" and then applauding himself. --PsyGremlinFale! 13:06, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
And finally burned. Gosh that was a circuitous way of getting to "I'm not going to address you peons", wasn't it? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:17, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
(ec)Tracy replies (manual cap - I had the diff open in a tab but then got distracted by my RSS feeds) and Ken burns the entire page to the ground and recreates a clean versionimg - yep, feel free to leave a message! --Sid (talk) 13:18, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
And "asking me to redesign my talk page" has become an explicit "do not contact me about this" example in Ken's talk page "DO NOT TALK TO ME!" disclaimer box (no diff - he has already burnt it to the ground again). --Sid (talk) 13:22, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Man, when Rob wakes up he's going to have a seizure after seeing all these burnings in recent changes that he explicitly asked kendoll just yesterday to stop doing. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:27, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
(ec, bastard!) Does anybody else picture Ken sweating profusely and muttering under his breath as he frantically clicks his mouse, trying to restore reality to just the way he likes it. This is certainly the first time he's had to face such a backlash on CP. --PsyGremlinPrata!
(EC) He's now spent the last eight hours deleting, recreating and protecting his user page. He must feel like the Stasi bureaucrats in the waning days of the GDR, frantically trying to shred as many documents as possible while the shouting of the demonstrators on the outside gets progressively louder, angrier and closer. Feeling the heat already, Ken? Röstigraben (talk) 13:45, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

I like how Conservative is raping Recent Changes (hopefully image capture happens) right now, while Andy is calmly ignoring it all like it's never happening. Must be some really tight tunnel vision. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 13:38, 12 July 2011 (UTC)

Rob is fighting a fool's fight because he is fighting by himself. He needs another sysop or two to clean up Ken crapping all over the Wiki. Unlike some of you, I do not want Rob to be successful with his anti-Ken efforts because, as we saw from the website, Ken is the best thing going for keeping CP a tin foil hat joke that turns off their target market. And Rob will fail, because Ken is far more invested, far more active and far more influential on that site because he brings lots of hits from people who come to ridicule CP. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:37, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I think pretty much think the same thing. Ken is really bad for CP's image, so let him win. --Night Jaguar (talk) 16:14, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
I too hope that Knobs is unsuccessful in his efforts, but I hope he continues for a good while. For people to see a gibbering idiot post ludicrous and embarrassing (even to conservative christians) nonsense all over a website is one thing, but for them to see that another sysop is actively trying to prevent this but getting no support or help, even from the site's owner, takes it to another level.

What he said. Getting Andy on your side is key since Ken (a.k.a. the guy who was such a mystery that the Secret Sysop Group of the time had to launch its own investigation to figure out who he really was) will refuse to cooperate with anybody. Of course, this is unlikely to work out because Andy doesn't dare to slap down Ken. And that is because for four years, everybody sat on their asses while Ken alone controlled three key articles/areas and manipulated search engine ratings to create "success" stories. --Sid (talk) 17:59, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Let's keep in focus what the objective is: it is not to slap User:Conservative down, or open those three articles open editing; it is to force sysop accountability. The remaining CP sysops, Andy included, are all aware the damage TK did over the years. But TK could at times, at some level, be responsive to suggestions and show a willingness to work with others of varying opinion. User:Conservatve wears ideologial blinders. If Andy slapped him down, he'd convince himself Andy's an atheist and going to hell anyway. He wouldn't learn from overreaching. nobsViva la Revolución! 19:44, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Right now, enforcing sysop accountability and slapping Ken down are one and the same because Ken is completely out of line, even compared to the other sysops who are quite happy to slap others around for no reason (Kara and Ed come to mind). And you will need both popular support and Andy's ear for this. You can write rules, but so far, even the most basic Commandments are openly ignored by sysops. You need more power if you want to enforce anything with the sysops. --Sid (talk) 19:50, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
"And you will need both popular support and Andy's ear for this...." "Popular support"? are you fucking kidding me Sid? Which community of people counts enough to make up "popular support" on CP? There;s Rob, Karajou, Ed, Ken, JPatt and a few stragglers, all of whom are invested in their own corners of the project, none of whom are part of any broader community, most of whom actually actively dislike each other, all of whom are subordiante to Andy. There's no such a thing as "popular" on CP, only "what Andy chooses to tolerate." P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 19:57, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
  • even the most basic Commandments are openly ignored by sysops
Amen to that. And that's been the case since the Night of the Blunt Knives, if not before. And it was TK's doing. It is an embalmed precedent - sysops ignoring site rules with no consequences - that even new sysops, who never heard of TK, will think the rules don't apply to them. This has always worried me, even before the Night of the Blunt Knives. nobsViva la Revolución! 20:06, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
Why don't you just give up? CP isn't worth trying to save anyway. It's practically Kendollpedia already. Just walk away and do your own thing. Or do the TerryH thing and spam your own thing on CP. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:34, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
(ec)It's actually an interesting question who set the precedent. Though it mostly depends on which rule you're looking at. TK (and DeanS, IIRC) demolished a fair few and set up their own WTH rules (this is another big problem, by the way), but when you look at really basic things like the first two Commandments (true+verifiable, always give sources), TK was fairly late to the party while Andy entered the playing field with Liberal [Noun] articles, insights and truisms (though it was TK who made the latter term "popular", I think), and of course his infamous dinner conversations. --Sid (talk) 20:38, 12 July 2011 (UTC)
"Let's keep in focus what the objective is: it is not to slap User:Conservative down, or open those three articles open editing" - nobs (emphasis mine). Why shouldn't these articles be open for editing? A Wiki is a collaborative effort, and articles, espeically major ones, are not to be the domain of one user; it runs contrary to the very principles of having an encyclopedic wiki. This is doubly true when they are so full of inaccuracies and are not encyclopedic articles, but propaganda hit pieces.

" obviously quite a wealthy man." No, he's probably pretty damn comfortable, "quite a wealthy man," to me, anyways, entails the kind of wealth that can translate into power -- the Gateses, Kochs, Murdochs, Turners, etc. of the world. You're not "really wealthy" until you own things -- corporations, properties, etc. that produce wealth for you, and lots of it.

Gun-pointing legislator[edit]

Regarding Andy's MPR headline about a legislator pointing a gun at a reporter.img

Okay, I've never owned a gun, nor do I desire to. But as I understand it, elementary firearm safety includes two very basic rules:

  1. Always treat a gun as if it was loaded.
  2. Never point a loaded gun at someone unless you intend to shoot.
    1. If you think you're pointing an unloaded gun at someone, see rule 1.

The legislator is question was in no way being responsible. She may be perfectly in the right in having the gun in the state capitol, but it's not a fucking toy you show off, especially not by pointing it at someone. MDB (talk) 12:46, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Hell I live in the UK and when I was a little kid my grandad taught me to never point a gun at someone, and to never assume that it isn't loaded, and all I had was a cap gun. It has always surprised me that people with real guns act like such assholes with them. X Stickman (talk) 12:49, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
The article he linked to doesn't give the whole story. First of all, she's been changing her story, second, the gun was loaded, and third, the safety was off. -Lardashe
The NRA would earn some credit in my mind if they came out and said, "we respect the legislator's right to own and carry a firearm, but we oppose her irresponsible demonstration of her gun." MDB (talk) 13:14, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
My understanding is that the gun didn't even have a safety mechanism. I'm not sure, but that would make said firearm illegal? Furthermore, the weapon of gun wasn't being used in a defensive fashion in this incident. Aboriginal Noise Oh, you want to hit people with garbage cans? 13:16, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
""Oh, it's so cute," Klein said, according to a transcript of the interview. She added there was no need to worry. There was no safety on the gun, Klein said to reporter Richard Ruelas and photographer Mark Henle, but "I just didn't have my hand on the trigger, god."" [4] Pippa (talk) 13:29, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
When I was doing my weapons handling training in the military, our instructor corporal said "If anyone ever points a rifle barrel at you, even in jest, you are to punch them as hard as you can in the face, and that's a direct order!". DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 13:47, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Honestly, if you buy a laser sighted, hot pink pistol then you probably think it is a toy and you shouldn't have been allowed to buy it in the first place. Hell, I think gun makers should offer guns in something other than black or gunmetal in their catalogues, but not actually make them, as a honey trap to weed out unqualified purchasers. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:49, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Jeeves, we don't censor her and we let the reader form their own opinions. Everyone should own and carry a gun. This is self-evident. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:53, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Not having a safety isn't a big deal and wouldn't render the weapon illegal. An old-fashioned revolver like a Wild West movie is still perfectly legal in most places that allow handguns at all. Correct handling (e.g. not pointing the weapon at someone) is far more important than any plausible technological improvement in terms of weapon safety. (talk) 18:37, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Does it surprise anyone that Andy doesn't know a damned thing about gun safety? If you press him on it, he'll probably claim that such rules are designed by liberals to make otherwise sensible people fear a largely defensive weapon. (I grew up in a gun nut home, and we sure as hell learned how to treat guns with respect.) Phiwum (talk) 13:57, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
No. And the truth is that anyone who knows anything about guns knows she was in the wrong. The only reason anyone would try to defend her is to try to politicise her idiocy and defend her fucking stupidty. Face it is reasonable to assume that karajerk is probably a gun owner, ken probably masturbates over pictures of guns but isn't allowed by the rules of his care home to own one and andy has never been near on in his life except for watching films on tv.

Yeah, I'll go with the "it's a toy" theory. Out of my handful of gun nut friends who've never fired a weapon in anger, and the Merc I know, there is no question in my mind as to who would be more likely to shoot me by accident. Somebody who has seen real people get shot is under no illusion that guns are toys. Also my guess would be (I have never asked) that the Merc doesn't even own a gun. It's not as though you can board a plane from the UK to some embattled country with an AK-47 in your luggage; weapons and other military equipment are just tools provided by the client. (talk) 18:22, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Andru and the gun toter are fools. My dad was a life member of the NRA, and although pretty gungho, he ALWAYS emphasized safety, and even though I haven't touched a gun in over 35 years, those lessons still stick. I would never, ever, point one at anybody. If you handed a gun to someone, the receiving person was within their rights to demand you to demonstrate that it was unloaded before handing it over. This was to prevent accidental discharge during the exchange. Any other times, there was NO pointing. I didn't even bother to look up the politics of the gun toter, because frankly, it doesn't matter! Whoever did it should not have. Period. The End. Jimaginator (talk) 20:20, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

The only gun I currently possess is a moderately powered air pistol, sadly now illegal in the UK due to more knee-jerk reactions from politicians but that's another story. Whenever someone else in in the room with me and I am handling the pistol I ALWAYS breach it to show that it is not loaded. ALWAYS. And even then I would not point it anywhere other than a leg just in case. To do otherwise is simply moronic and ayone who seeks to justify is simply moronic - but in the case of andy that is a definate tautology. Oldusgitus (talk) 23:21, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

In this last post - while I'm not sure what User:Conservative's "weapon" is - I made a mistake. I suggested Rob had not unprotected Conservative's page - I made this decision because I had assumed if it had happened, it would not be very far back in the page log, as page logs are generally short. This was a stupid error on my part - I would chalk it up to being a little out of practice (it's been a few weeks since I've edited the wiki, and even longer since I've concerned myself with things like "page logs"), but having been a user for - on and off - almost 4 years, I should've known better.--Iduan (talk) 03:35, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

A worthy, if doomed, effort. You just did a Conservapedia:Schlafly Rearguard on Kendoll's behalf, however unwittingly, and you've helped Kendoll to win.

Re:slug: I believe it's impossible to remove information from logs; I could be mistaken, in my 4 years I have no experience with high-level tools like oversight. As to typos ... I've never been picked on for typos, but I don't change my text because of fear of being picked on, I change them because I don't like having typos in what I've written. Re:Jeeves: I suppose you're referring to my first post, since my second couldn't be interpreted as doing that. But I don't necessarily agree with this idea that it's "Rob vs Conservative". It's not a matter of one user coming out on top, it's a matter of building consensus and a better wiki. This isn't a matter of debating a certain paragraph in an article, it's a matter of building guidelines - and guidelines aren't built via one-on-one debates.--Iduan (talk) 03:48, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Evidently logs can be oversighted; there's no record of User:NKEaton's block [
Well, good luck in your fantasy land then. In the real world, there's no chance of improving CP while Kendoll still inhabits it. He singlehandedly makes CP the laughingstock that it is. What consensus do you imagine you can drag out of someone who can't even form a coherent argument, and whose only response to any challenge is to claim he's too busy to talk to you? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 03:53, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Is there any evidence of Nate being blocked? IIRC, he complained about his user page being burnt to the ground on Ken's message page, so at that point at least, he hadn't been blocked.

I don't agree with Rob's worldview but I do admire the fact that he's trying to improve the situation at CP. Of course the irony is that many editors here were trying to instil some standards before they got blocked. (Yes, Rob, not everyone was trying to vandalize CP.) Unfortunately Ken is giving Rob a bitch-slapping and Andy is looking the other way. You have to wonder what the likes of JPatt and Karajou are making of this because so far they have been simpering wimps hiding in the corner.

It still amazes me that Rob is the only one that stands up to him though. It's needless to say that if he wasn't a sysop, he would have been banned a long time ago. But for some of the things that Ken says, such as TK burning in hell for "lying about his devotion to crationism", I'm really surprised Andy hasn't stepped in already.
Wow. This has been impressive to watch - especially now that it's escalated to the point of blocking. And still Andy looks the other way. Ah, to be a fly on the wall in in the Conservapedia Group... although, given the fact that everybody ignores Ken in the discussion rooms, it might not be helping him much there. It really does show just what a douche Ken is though - he's being asked (nicely at first) to amend his behaviour and is flatly refusing and throwing out insults left and right. I'm really impressed with Rob, especially thisimg edit. It's just sad that Karajerk and Jratt aren't man enough to jump into the fray. --PsyGremlinKhuluma! 10:15, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Plus I can't remember where, but I remember reading a comment by Andy on a talk page of one of his own essays.

Andy's complete disregard for the shit slinging on his front lawn just shows what a spineless weed he is.

Sir Rupert Murdoch[edit]

The proprietor of sex and scandal whose newspapers have admittedly hacked (and deleted) the voice mails of a murdered little girl, terrorist victims and world leaders, was "knighted" by the Catholic Church in 1998 (to a great outcry by Catholics). On both cp:Rupert_Murdoch (added by a parodistimg and cp:News Corporation (added by TKimg) they use the honorific "Sir" for Murdoch, even though there is no evidence that papal knights are entitled to use it, since it's a British honorific. Correct me if I'm wrong. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:51, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

For what it's worth the filthy digger can call himself anything he likes in the UK. As can you. The only offence is to try to impersonate for pecuniary gain or for fraudulent reasons. As David Lord Sutch was quite entitled to call himself Lord Sutch despite never having been enobled and Humphry Littleton was entitled to NOT use his title. If you try to con someone by calling yourself Sir then you are committing an offence but not until then. However cp is wrong as murdoch doesn't call himself sir either.

Well, it's not entirely a free-for-all. You mustn't pretend to be a specific Lord Stooksbury who already exists. You can't use the fake name to avoid the law (e.g. to hide from a debt, or from police). You aren't to pretend to have various professional qualifications. And the law doesn't force other people to use your ridiculous name, nor does it care about the hilarious consequences when all your hotel reservations are deleted because they were presumed to be prank phone calls. But sure, be Lord Stooksbury if you like. You may even get a nicer seat on the plane. (talk) 17:17, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Can Andy really be that out of touch with practical reality? I have held janitorial and culinary jobs, and as a teenager I worked a four-pump island at a busy filling station. Full service that was, checking oil and topping off fluids including the battery cells. That's where I became familiar with the distinctive appearance of the holes in cotton fabric that come from invisible splashes of sulfuric acid.
When I worked building maintenance, I kept a pair and a half of vinyl gloves in my back pocket in case I had to touch something really gross, but most of the time I worked bare-handed. There were over two hundred toilets in my building, and I got so I could change a wax ring in under fifteen minutes, even on days when I was "dehydrated." Yup, that's what it was, dehydrated.
None of those were in a farming or medical context, but you had better believe that I washed my hands before lunch.
Artistic contexts seem to be missing from the list as well. Flake white (white lead) is still used, although it has become hard to get. Somewhere I have a ziploc bag of gamboge, which in sufficient doses leads to fatal diarrhea. No need for hand-washing there, no sir. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 20:42, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

God, Jesus and the Bible are more or less accessory to Andy's pet theories anyway.

Of course that would involve Andy handling lab equipment and toxic chemicals. Perhaps not. Kalliumtalk 00:50, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

Pharmacists as pillars of the community[edit]

Why does Ken think[3]img that people think pharmacology is a valiant profession to a degree a parole board is willing to go easy on one for murdering a man? ("My guess is that his prior service to the community as a pharmacist...will be taken into account as far as sentencing and possibility of parole/probation."img) I mean, it's not so bad but I hardly look at my Walgreen's pharmacist as a pillar of the community akin to the police, clergy or firemen.

It's hard to fathom. Let's say 2/3rds of all books written are "liberal", or even 90%. What that evidences is a lack of conservative scholarship and publication (most thinking people know that's not the case). Do you guys remember back when conservatives were all fretting that liberals beat them to the Internet and thus dominating it? The YouTube Ken and ShockofGod love so much was once deemed liberal. Now conservative/liberal presence is pretty equal, but back when it wasn't that didn't mean the Internet was the problem, it was conservative resistance to keeping up with new technology, a perennial problem for people who resist change. Calling a neutral platform by which anyone can use it "liberal" because you see liberals use it is pretty stupid. He also has this problem with Facebook, and it just makes him (and CP) look incredibly behind the times. Not to mention just plain dumb. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:15, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
But I'd give him some cred with Twitter, some of this stuff is hardly English anymore, that's why it looks dumb too people that doen't understand how languages evolve.
Why Andy hates books, except that special one: Book = Knownledge = Education → people start to think for themselves → more people become liberals, freethinkers, atheists a.s.o. → People think Andy is stupid as soon as they read his stuff → Little Andy feels small and powerless → Books make people not believe what Andy says + Andy is a conservative (= good) → Books are liberal.

Until the rest of the editors join Rob in stopping Ken from crapping all over their Wiki, he will run amok, harassing new editors. The pathetic people who were willing to tuck their tails between their legs just to be part of this turd pile would support whoever seemed to have the "power". Now that Rob is raising issues with Ken's menagerie, b/c it retards CP's influence, and is offensive, Andy might not do something but new editors probably will. Objectively, Ken's 'Fat' essays will piss a lot of new editors off and instantly make them dislike him. So, if Rob keeps it up, then Ken's days of doing whatever-the-fuck-he-wants are coming to a close. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:24, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
"the rest of the editors." There is no "rest of the editors." Granted, there are a couple of deadenders like Iduan, but besides that, there's Andy on top, the sysops who are only interested in their own thing (Karajou, Ed, Terry, Jpatt, JoMar) and the parodists. P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 14:59, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Regardless, having a chorus of people, including bonafides like Rob, raising these issues might have an effect. If Rob is successful they will have more editors, they just won't keep them because Ken's work even insults conservatives. Rob has too big of a task on his plate. 1) to open the site back up to contributors (when that's not what Ken and Karajou want); and 2) to improve the quality of the content (which will not happen with Schlafly at the top). It will be fun to watch Rob's failure to reform an un-reformable mess. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 15:04, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Regular editors don't mean a thing. No one listens to them if they say anything the sysops don't like, they just get banned. Andy certainly won't be swayed by "the masses". Andy's support is the key to who wins this thing. Rob could bring over Karajou, JPatt, Ed Poor etc... to his side against Ken, but if Andy's on Ken's side, or if Andy just plain won't intervene, they've already lost. As for regular editors, Rob could have millions of people sign up and disagree with Ken. Ken would simply claim some kind of atheist conspiracy, and ban everyone. X Stickman (talk) 15:13, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
The thing is that Kara, Jpatt, Ed, etc. are unlikely to join Rob in the first place. They may agree that Ken is the biggest idiot on the planet, but they don't want any limits to their power, and Rob is aiming for freaking sysop accountability. If anybody doubts me, just go on and check the Conservaleaks. PJR tried the exact same thing (at the time, Bugler was the prime offender) and was pretty much thrown out of the group for it. --Sid (talk) 18:50, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
There are different reasons why the sysops cherish their status. Ken likes it because he can spout his drivel and protect it from being edited and prevent comments on the talk pages - it's a soapbox with no hecklers. If someone does manage to get through, say to Andy's talk page then he can block and burn to his heart's content without any comebacks. For Karajou, JPratt, and Ed it gives them some petty status where they can vent their anger on junior editors that's why they will generally keep quiet when there are issues of standards and general integrity because they won't do anything that might jeopardise their privileges, otherwise they would have gone the way of PJR, DanH and TimS, to say nothing of the feisty homeschool gals.

The problem is there's one side that matters on CP, if you're a sysop - being in Andy's good books. Since Andy (and Kara by default) have embraced Ken's 'Atheists are fat! Hur hur!' meme, there's no way they would risk earning Andy's displeasure by turning on Ken. They all openly dislike the man, but they fear losing Andy's race far more, because let's face it - CP is the only place they'll ever have anything approaching authority. Compared to that lot, Rob's balls are pure brass and 10 feet wide. --PsyGremlinSermā! 19:48, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

It's my anniversary, you silly people! Not my "I joined RW" anniversary, not my "I joined CP" anniversary... but much rather the fourth anniversary of my current, infinite ban on CP! =D

Oh yeah, that's me, bitches!

So what was the ban reason? What horrible feat did I do to deserve this? Well, the thing is that this thing came straight out of nowhere. One moment I was giggling at Ed's 2-hour block for sarcasm (don't ask), the next moment TK extends the block to infinity for, well, the above "reason". Of course I asked around by mail to see WTF was up.

Here's Ed's reply:

Bottom line is, if you want to post on our web site, you have to gain TK's approval.
Any sysop can block your account - and we do not have to give a reason.
I gave you a second chance, and you wasted it.
If you want a 3rd chance, think about what you would do with it, and submit a written plan: Which articles do you intend to improve or start? I can let you in, on probation, if you will submit a writing plan (and promise to stick to it).

Ah yes, that makes perfect sense. OH WAIT, IT DOESN'T. Yeah, thanks for the generous offer of submitting myself to parole and a writing plan when the ban made no sense. =|

TK's reply somehow managed to make less sense than Ed's, though:

We do not tolerate editors, such as you were, providing links to material, which seeks to embarrass or undermine other administrators. Supposedly your purpose in wanting back was to make quality edits, not play internal politics, and the exchange below, unless you are in your pre-teens and totally ignorant of the world, belies your claim to not be engaged in helping play one sysop against another.

The section in question? It was my last exchange on my talk page:

==Information destruction==
Sid, I admire your vigilance on information destruction. Please alert me if you encounter anything to be concerned about. Thanks. RobS 13:45, 13 July 2007 (EDT)
I'm not 100% certain what exactly caused you to make the comment, but sure thing, glad I could help... :) --Sid 3050 13:56, 13 July 2007 (EDT)
I'm referring to this [6] and this [7] for example, and some of the similiar problems you encountered in RW. RobS 14:07, 13 July 2007 (EDT)
Oh, those things! Yeah. Good times, good times. :P Thanks for the offer, I'll keep it in mind. :) --Sid 3050 14:10, 13 July 2007 (EDT)

Yes, my "working one sysop against the other" and "providing links to material" was in fact Rob starting a conversation and Rob giving links. And I was banned for it. Somehow. Ladies and gentlemen, TK at his finest!

TK's mail goes on and on, but it's mindless banter about how this wasn't just his decision and how Andy and the others were informed and how he already had to look away several times and how he and Ed were my only hope and how he'd reconsider if I forwarded to him all mails by Kevin (the guy who early on alerted us of TK's community-destroying habits), blah blah blah.

The best part? While this was the most openly abusive ban (of me), it wasn't the dumbest. That award goes to Karajou for his involvement in the Bible Ban Chronicles. Hilariously, this is how I survived the Night of the Blunt Knives: I had already been permabanned, and Ed experimentally unblocked me months later (made somewhat easier since I wasn't involved in TK's mass banning)... two days before this round of permabans. Good times, good times. XD --Sid (talk) 09:22, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Happy anniversary! I missed by 2-year anni by a month - thanks for reminding me. However, you fail in looking for logic where a TK block was concerned. The only thing you need to know is "I was yet another helpless pawn is TK's successful plot to screw Conservapedia over." --PsyGremlinTala! 10:24, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Thanks! And it was less to look for logic (though I was admittedly going "Dude, now what?" at the time since I was just settling in again after months of being banned for something truly stupid) and more to see the pathetic justifications, especially by Ed "I'm a good friend of the guy who tries to destroy the site I want to see succeed!" Poor. Needless to say, with TK's "I banned you because you're in my way, and nobody will help you!" and Ed's "LOL I dunno derp", it was a pretty easy for me to say "GOOD RIDDANCE!" --Sid (talk) 16:22, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Sid, I hope my bona fidas has been vindicated in all of this. Do img's exist to the two broken links? Whatever it was, it was important enough that I (a) spent time on it, and (b) undid another's block, 3 times. I'm sorry for never following through on it, but your case just got swept away in the tide of events.
Let me add, I hope it's obvious now I'm not forcing the issue of CP accountability just gain votes in Mod elections, and my integrity is intact. Thanks to all. nobsViva la Revolución! 20:44, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Rob, the problem with you isn't primarily in what you did, but in what you didn't do. This applies both to the past and the present.
Four years ago, you happened to be directly involved in a picture perfect abuse case to be made against TK, yet you let it slip past. Now, don't get me wrong; I'm not mad, and I wasn't mad back then because by that time, RW2 was merrily doing its thing, and I mostly just sought my unban (the one before TK threw the above fit) out of principle. But yeah, TK blatantly abused his power, Ed was made aware of this and openly looked away, and you... kinda let it go.
And now, we're (more or less) all cheering you on because you're trying to do the right thing, but seriously, it's likely too little, too late. You lost powerful allies when DanH, TimS and PJR left in disgust. Especially the latter would have supported your current quest to hold sysops accountable. Look at the Conservaleaks and watch him propose pretty much exactly that. And look at the reactions of your current fellow sysops.
So... yeah. I wish you well, I don't hate you (though to be fair, you're also not the saint you would like us to believe in), and I support your current quest, but you badly missed your window of opportunity. Good luck. --Sid (talk) 22:21, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
CP:Timeline doesn't help much [8], it references "fighting between RobS and TK continues at a riotous rate" 10 days earlier; Conservaleaks for July 13 gives TK's misinformation [9]; this was still at the time TK was trying to "trying to frame Rob S" leaks. See here, for eaxmple, "Take a look at the now deleted talk page of Sid3050, and it appears clearer than ever to me Rob was involved with the Kevin Conley emails", TK still trying to defend himself after the Kenvin Conley letter. There's more of a narative here to be written, but I've stood for transparency, resent backdoor dealings such as I've suffered at the hands of the Wikipedia cabal and TK's IM's. TK complains here, "Rob is posting this stuff publicly, and often." So I have an record to stand on. nobsViva la Revolución! 20:19, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Yet after fours years I'm still banned forever (without valid reason and despite never socking and never vandalizing) while actual vandals just get five years, or even just six monthsimg (reduced to that from infinite by you). Your record currently is that you're more welcoming of obvious wiki vandals than of people who genuinely tried to help and opposed sysop abuse. Nice. ;) --Sid (talk) 22:45, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
Just saw your postimg about the infinite bans being under review. While I still find the situation weird and amusing, I guess I can afford to lean back and await the outcome. =P Go ahead, please surprise me. --Sid (talk) 22:54, 14 July 2011 (UTC)
I tried to restore the broken links above but TK's 4700 deleted talk page comments may be unrecoverable. So it's been reverted to this version with an apology. nobsViva la Revolución! 18:54, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Eating garbage is conservative[edit]

Andy added 'dumpster diving' "Searching through dumpsters for food or other material that can used rather than discarded"img to his steaming "conservative" word pile. I would have been reluctant to go near him before but with this, and the whole don't-wash-your-hands thing, I think he might be actually be a biohazard. --Night Jaguar (talk) 12:58, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

There are no words. In what possible context can dumpster diving be conservative, except as a spin off of the Reagan and Bush era financial crashes? Just when I think Andy couldn't get any loopier. Who's got a sock - I can wait to hear his rationale for this one. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 3:06 pm, Today (UTC+2)
I think he's claiming the term is conservative, not the act, since in his citation, it was used as a disparaging reference to the homeless looking for food. MDB (talk) 13:17, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
So it's a conservative value to make fun of the homeless then. Sounds like typical Andy. --PsyGremlinTala! 13:28, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Andy's a bad writer. His point isn't always clear. I thought he might have been using it against homeless too, but with his whole don't-wash-your-hands thing, the "can used rather than discarded" and that he was written "greasy spoon" is conservativeimg made me think otherwise. If he later says its the word and not the act that is conservative, I'll change the WIGO.
My guess is that in the Schlafly household cleaning was deemed women's work. Since Phyllis was out of the home all the time telling women they should be in the home all the time, shit didn't get done. Since anything from Andy's world is conservative, being filthy is obviously conservative. I think that's what's really behind this whole anti-cleanliness thing of his. --Night Jaguar (talk) 13:34, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

About a year ago, Rush Limbaugh actually suggested dumpster diving as an alternative for Summer Food Service programs for children out of school. --Night Jaguar (talk) 13:47, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
I thought for the wingnuts like andy dumpster diving was theft. Certainly in the UK many prominent conservatives say that divers should be prosecuted as just because you've thrown something out does not transfer ownership to whoever picks it up (in fact it transfers ownership to the refuse collector or agency). So now andy is sanctioning theft. Way to go andy, we'll have you shouting 'all property is theft' yet before you die. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:09, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh no no no. The Supreme Court ruled, I believe in Kissinger v New York Times that "trash is there for the taking", and once disposed of, the former owner rescinds all property claims. At best, you may get a criminal trespass charge to stick. nobsViva la Revolución! 22:56, 16 July 2011 (UTC)

Jpatt is spot on; some people do it out of desperation, some people do it for freebies, and some people do it to steal information.

Of course, neither was Andy. Although I do seem to remember Andy coming down on Dean's side. So now Ken is openly challenging Andy. Interesting. Ken! Ken! Don't forget the evil Moonies! Or will you have to wait for Ed to leave before you have the balls to do that? --PsyGremlinSpeak! 17:05, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
A while back Ken was linking to a bunch of different anti-atheism blogs which were all written by one guy named Mariano or something (why one guy would have many different blogs all covering the same topic is beyond me, but this guy was probably about as mentally stable as Ken). Anyway, those blogs also had prominent links to other blogs of his which were decidedly anti-Mormon. I mentioned to Dean than the main page was featuring prominent links to a guy who was spouting pretty strong anti-Mormonism, but he didn't really seem to care. It's odd how it's taken 4 years for anyone to stand up to Ken. DickTurpis (talk) 17:23, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
Right, where is Ken with the Moonies, or he is too scared of creepy Ed Poor? I like that Ken uses the Lutheran Missouri Synod, which considers the Catholic papacy to be the Antichrist. Indeed, the church Michele Bachmann attended also believes that, and yet Andy is Catholic and continually trumpets her. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 17:49, 15 July 2011 (UTC)
This isn't that odd, most Christian denominations actually don't see Mormons as "fellow Christians". As for the Papacy as "the Antichrist", that isn't too uncommon either. Fundamentalist Baptists almost universally see the Papacy this way and Calvinists, although they usually don't go that far, see the institution as evil as well. This isn't that uncommon in Protestantism. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:42, 15 July 2011 (UTC)

That old saying, two Jews, three opinions - well, I would say the same if you asked Christians to define who is and who is not a Christian. As to Conservative and myself, we disagree about very many things, but I look for common ground, and a shared interest in refuting atheism is my common ground with Conservative, so I focus on that area, and put aside other areas on which our opinions greatly differ.
