Not really different circumstances, it would've still been terrible to not raise the ceiling in 2006, but back then it was just posturing and "shame, shame, you ran up this huge debt", whereas now...I think it's the same thing, but Republicans are going crazy with the brinksmanship.

Conservative == Disney?[edit]

I think I've figured it out. CP's User:Conservative is actually the reanimated frozen head of Walt Disney. Or the creation of the Disney corporation. Or something.

Look: Disney (the corporation) made their money re-interpreting public domain works (such as the happy ending Hunchback movie), and then works to retroactively extend copyright protection so that none of their work falls into the public domain.

Conservative's essays on Atheism consist largely of poking fun of particular atheists by linking to their images, etc., all the while hiding behind a pseudonym so that no one can attack him similarly.

Okay. Maybe not. Maybe the world is filled with hypocrites, all of them different. But maybe, just maybe, Conservative really is Disney reincarnate.

Makes you think, right? Right? .... Right? Phiwum (talk) 15:38, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Difference is Disney was able to make something of himself.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:56, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Ken's Block Reform suggestion[edit]

Buried in the shitstorm that once was Andy's talk page is thisimg little gem: Ken made a framework suggestion regarding block reform. Since I'm banned, I'll just post what will undoubtedly be a minor wall of text here:

  • I do think that from a long term perspective a new blocking policy is warranted in order to protect editors from capricious blocks
    • Well, shit, I'm already agreeing with Ken. This is going to be an interesting ride! =D
  • I think we can all agree that CP certainly can't guarantee that some future blocker or Sysop won't engage in capricious blocking
    • Well, of course not. However, mechanisms can and should be put into place to override and undo such obvious abuse. The foundation of which is putting into place a few binding guidelines regarding block lengths, for example. Let's call it... I dunno... a blocking reform.
  • 1. I suggest that any new reform or reforms be simple. CP can't predict for an discrete period of time, how heavy the blocking will be in reaction to vandals. Therefore, having some elaborate Byzantine bureaucratic scheme or blocking review at this time is probably going to be unworkable.
    • I... don't even understand what Ken is suggesting there. The more I look at it, the less sense this paragraph makes. In my eyes, it shouldn't matter how many vandals are blocked in any period of time if the blocking policy is well defined: (1) Make clear rules that outline what is an offense and what is not. -> (2) Give at least rough guidelines for block durations per offense (5 years for replacing a dozen pages with "LOLOL CP SUXXXXX" is not controversial (though slightly overkill), two years without warning for 90/10 less so, and I won't even get started on Kara's new 5 year block of me...). -> (3) It's possible to notice and classify abuse, which can be handled as it pops up.
  • 2. Perhaps defining what is "parody vandalism" is might be a good idea. I already offered a suggestion above.
    • I guess he meant thisimg comment, where he wrote "If such a parodist defining policy were written for encyclopedia articles, I would suggest it incorporate purposefully setting up strawman arguments and/or purposefully using churlish/cloddish language (usually combined with providing no evidence)". Which... isn't TOO bad as a guideline, but could instantly be applied to ban Andy, Ken or Karajou. I "outlined" my issues with defining parody on CP earlier.img
  • 3. I suggest that the CP community develop a blocking review board
    • The sound you are currently hearing is Ken's current best friend Karajou cursing loudly. :) Ladies and gentlemen, Ken just suggested that users should be able to question blocks! Sure, he quickly tries to limit the amount of questioning (which... makes no sense - imagine Internal Investigations having a set quota beyond which all investigations are defaulted to "Did nothing wrong"), but the fundamental suggestions is SO COMPLETELY against the status quo that Karajou and the others are trying to defend, I can't help but laugh at Ken effectively backstabbing his current supporters. Oh, you can also kiss MYOB goodbye while you're at it. ;)
  • Alternatively, Andy could be a member of this board.
    • Oh, wait, nevermind, all cases will default to "Did nothing wrong" anyway. =|
  • I can't speak for others, but I personally have no problem having my blocks reviewed by such a board.
    • Start with thisimg one, where you gave a 2-year 90/10 ban right after said user made thisimg edit.
  • I would suggest that RobS not be a part of such a blocking review board because including myself 3 Sysops that I am aware of think he should lose his Admin rights.
    • Why yes, this makes perfect sense. A block review board shouldn't include the guy who has been questioning unfair blocks or your own behavior. That certainly explains why you have no problem with having your blocks reviewed - you insist on staffing it with people who support you. =|
  • I was told by a pessimist that a workable blocking reform couldn't possibly be developed in 30 minutes or less. However, I believe I just created one.  :)
    • Not quite, but you at least started some discussion... if you ignore that you and your friends created an atmosphere where speaking up is considered ban-worthy behavior, thus silencing people one way or another.
  • I welcome other editors comments on my blocking reform framework.
    • Hahaha. =|

I still like how all these new accounts pretty much reveal themselves by saying "Hey, i know all about this situation, despite being a new guy who would have no real knowledge of the situation" kinda lazy really--Mikalos209 (talk) 01:11, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Nonsense. Why, there are millions of people who read conservapedia every day. Of course most of these people are going to be lurkers with no accounts. Because of the high quality of content present on conservapedia, all of these lurkers are going to read as much of it as possible and stay up to date with the internal politics of the site, so when these long time lurkers *do* make an account, their first post is going to demonstrate knowledge far beyond that of a new visitor to the site. X Stickman (talk) 01:26, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
I note that it is suspiciously common for conservapaedia editors to say that they 'have been reading conservapedia for a while'... Eye on the ICR talk, or type, or whatever... 02:41, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Wow,[edit]

Andy has time to reply to a comment on Nintendo Wii, but he can't be bothered to fix the shit storm going on on his very own talk page?img At least he's admitting to being wrong in that post (sorta). --"Shut up, Brx." 02:11, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

RobS Conservative and Andy's Talk page[edit]

So I don't really post here often nor do I post at CP but both RobS and Conservative are acting like Andy is there dad and they have to permission to do anything. Here's an idea for both of you since I know both of you read RW.

RobS: if you don't agree with the edits that Conservative is making then revert edits or delete the pages, etc. but crying to Andy isn't working for you. I do admire you trying to make things better but sometimes you need to just get things done rather than talking about getting things done which is all that is happening on Andy's talk page.

Conservative: Same thing here. If you don't agree with the policies that RobS is putting in place either rewrite them yourself or revert them but posting a letter to Andy isn't helping your case either. You might also try to help rewrite the policies rather than telling the world you hate Atheism.

Honestly I don't blame Andy for staying out of this sysop tug of war since there isn't anything good to be said. Quazywabbit (talk) 05:57, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Andy is the site's owner, and the only one empowered to do anything. Rob reverts and restores Conservative constantly, but the only meaningful solution lies in Andy's intervention. This is not some tug of war, either. Boiling it down to the issues (regardless of how you feel about their ideologies), RobSmith is in the right. --"Shut up, Brx." 06:01, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I get that Andy is the site's owner, but the other sysops are empowered to do things to help including rewriting policies. Waiting for Andy to respond hasn't been working for the past few weeks and its pretty safe to say Andy is aware with everyone using his talk page. Quazywabbit (talk) 06:08, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Stop addressing either of them as if they were reasonable human beings. ken is a whole picnic basket short of a picnic (he's insane!) and Rob is upset because ken's getting all the kudos while the site should be concentrating on those awful lefty communist marxists who are trying to create the Soviet of Amerika. Pippa (talk) 06:22, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I think Ken's just giving it everything he's got now to punish Rob. Even if he doesn't have legit claims it looks like he's just going to continue to whine and make it a huge deal until he gets his way. The guy's spoiled rotten with his unchallenged power. SoCal 212 I can't find my talk page 07:20, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

How is Robbo losing this? He's a member of the original Gang of Four and should be using history in everyone of his posts. Namely Kenneth was only given sysop rights to edit a protected article, he never earned them in the normal manner nor was the intention ever there for him to be deleting talk pages or blocking users. He has buttons so he can edit protected pages and that's it. The other angle he should be taking constantly is that Ken has nothing left to add at the site, nothing. Since he's 'finished' his opus, all he's 'added' is 'satire' and endless projects that have always fizzled out in less than a week. He adds nothing to the site but amusement for its detractors.

Therefore I hope he maintains his power and continues his spiral past madness. It's cheaper than a movie and the seats are more comfortable. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 09:43, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

I get served beer in my seat while watching as well so double plus good for me. Oldusgitus (talk) 09:51, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
In fairness, "RobScentric" is quite witty... ADK...I'll suffocate your magnet! 12:27, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Man, I'm just picturing how Andy is as a father. His two kids fighting, yelling at each other, about to tear each other apart right in front of him and he just ignores them and goes on the computer to complain about the "liberal bias" in every form of media. --Night Jaguar (talk) 13:04, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

So I'm wondering why no one has even mentioned Andy's absence on his talkpage (or elsewhere, Community Portal, Abuse Desk, etc.) when users AND sysops are clearly looking for a reply. Most of what I see are parodists doing a piss-poor job and the usual newbie joining and adding a comment before being blocked. Come on, someone who's got a "clean" (meaning if you bring it up, you won't get reverted/blocked) reputation needs to just say it outright: Andy is avoiding the whole issue and that's exactly why RobS is calling for accountability. The longer it drags on, the more his point is made. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 22:54, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey! Look who came to play![edit]

"Demons" Bradley even wades in to the affrayimg, apparently forgetting that CP isn't aSoK. He's probably frantically trying to block them all for incivility right now, but mystified as to why he doesn't have the rights for it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 06:57, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

I like how LowBrow removes a "personal remark" that Rob made about himself. What a twat. Other than Bradley though all the other contributors being "reasonable" are undoubted parodists just helping to stir the shit. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 07:24, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Up to him really I guess. Personally I'm sitting this one out for a while to see how it unravels. I copuldn't even begin to match ken's level of parody, even if I wanted to. Oldusgitus (talk) 11:47, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I like Bradley's comment hereimg "Anyone at Conservapedia who has an account at the atheist vandal website should be punished". Really Brad? What about if they have two accounts? CrundyTalk nerdy to me 12:45, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
That's a different Bradley. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 12:57, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Bradley edits as LowKey on CP. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 13:41, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I edit as LowKey everywhere. Crundy needs to look a little more closely; I asked for a name change here, which Nx kindly provided. Click on User:Tricksy and see where it takes you. Seriously, how does any of your criticism have credibility with this kind sloppiness. Regarding CP I got tired of watching Convervative and RobS both moan that someone else should do something, and everyone else moan that somebody should do something, so I waded in and at least DID something in line with site policy. Genghis noticed my small shot at humour while I was at it, but completely missed the point. Jeeves is still apparently obsessed with demons, and the rest of his humour comes off as sloppy and lame, to me. LowKey (talk) 03:37, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

No, it was in the manner of "You already saw my CP userid, then assumed a different CP userid was ALSO me; and how DARE you accuse of something without even bothering with a rudimentary check."

Everybody hates Rob[edit]

Apparently Terry Cokeeyesimg, they guy who only uses CP to spam his own websites, has joined the committee to kill Rob Smith. Your reform efforts aren't going down so well, Rob. Just resign already, it isn't worth trying to push that boulder up the hill. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:17, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Personally I can't wait to see Ken's ejaculatory joy splattered all over CP when he wins this battle. It will truly be a sight to see. X Stickman (talk) 17:21, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Personally, I really hope he wins. Kendoll with a grudge against CP would be terrifying. Worse, he might come here to live it out. We'd be up to our tits in "Rob Smith's Sysopship and Homosexuality" articles. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:23, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I actually have real concerns about Ken losing his position at CP. As much as I enjoy seeing him be called on all his shit, and watching the master debater (hah! It sounds like "Masturbate". Decades of jokes suddenly make sense) defend himself with such arguments as "No!" and "stop talking to me!" is very funny, I don't want Ken removed or otherwise slapped down on CP simply because I worry for his health. Seriously, what *would* Ken do if he lost CP? It's literally the only thing he does. X Stickman (talk) 17:31, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I look forward to Rob's impending martyrdom at the hands of Ken and his neo-Pharisees. I can only hope it leads to another Klassic Ken Essay on the main page. DickTurpis (talk) 17:50, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Isn't Rob the pharisee in this picture, insisting that the people stick to rules handed down by god Andy. The rest of them are Christians insisting that, while they still worship Andy, the rules were fulfilled in the death and resurrection of TK. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:55, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Rob's position half way up Calvary makes him not a Pharisee. DickTurpis (talk) 18:09, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
At one point, Robs efforts were noble. Now he's participating in a kangaroo court and it's just pathetic. Give it up, liberals Rob. CP is a fucking farce. It reflects poorly upon yourself to even be associated with it. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:29, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Nah, the current drama is needed for a good narrative later on. I guess Rob mentally moved on beyond CP already, but he likes having a handy story of abuse to tell. You know, like all those TL:DR Chip Berlet stories. Next time when somebody at WP or so doubts his sincerity, empathy, or whatever, he'll recount the tale of how he was hounded out of CP by power-hungry sysops who opposed his attempts to make the site more community-friendly. I don't doubt that he is merrily compiling copies of mails and talk pages as we speak. --Sid (talk) 19:06, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

I know I sound like a stuck record, but seriously.... when is Andy going to say something about the pages and pages of drama on his user page... WHEN? It's getting way past absurd now. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:58, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

If I learned anything from CP it's that Andy is comfortable in "way past absurd" territory. --Night Jaguar (talk) 20:53, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
No snarky reply this time from me since you make a good point. Almost 220 (visible?) editsimg to Andy's talk page just since the creation of the "User: RobS" section. --Sid (talk) 20:05, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I think it's funny that Terry Coke Eyes didn't have the balls to go to Andy's talk page himself to give his reasons for having an issue with Rob. The little pussy only has time to spam. Be a man, Hurlbutt! --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:10, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
It's what you'd expect from the united editors behind Andy. Karajou, Coke Eyes and Ed are all silent. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:16, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Nahh, kenny baby wrote to chuckiebum and said 'do you support Rob or me', chuckie said not really bothered. kenny baby misread that as 'I agree with you' and so kenny lied about reported what chuckie said. All imo of course. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:24, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Never forget that Terry is the guy who explicitly advocated that Andy's unsourced opinion is objective truth (->Conservaleaks), so imagine if people told Andy that he needs to source his "insights", his Schlafly Statistics, or his truisms. Oh, and Terry might also mildly worry about people taking a closer look at his habit of selling his own opinion pieces as Reliable Sources. --Sid (talk) 20:51, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
It's funny what all this drama is about: effective control over a website no one takes seriously, including and especially conservatives. --Night Jaguar (talk) 20:53, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Hurlbutt is a pussy who can't voice his own opinion on record, and so is Andy, who can't step in and lead to resolve a major problem in his sysop corps. Ken is afraid of his gender. And conservatives say that liberals lack machismo? These guys are the biggest bunch of pussies I've seen. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 21:12, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
For me it's about keeping the funny coming. That's why I'm on Team Ken. I know Rob, even if victorious, would never be able to actually make Conservapedia a reputable forum, but even the mere suggestion of it should be fought tooth and nail. DickTurpis (talk) 21:14, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I completely agree. Team Rob's failure is the only way to keep the good times rollin! Go fat atheists! Go flying kitties! Go unicorns and dragons! --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 21:17, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
One thing that has surprised me during this whole showdown is that Rob showed he was capable of arguing fairly reasonably and without giving three non sequiturs about every sentence. --Night Jaguar (talk) 21:40, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Further evidence that Rob is not a complete retard and is only trolling us when he acts like one. DickTurpis (talk) 22:23, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Here's what you're looking for, Ken. You're welcome. Also, if this is such a major website linking to you, at least get the goddamn name right in your own article. (ʞlɐʇ) ɹǝɯɯɐHʍoƆ 22:34, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm rather curious about why it's Ken who's informing Andy that 3 sysops (Ken, Chuckarse and I assume Karajou) was Rob removed. Don't the other two have the balls to speak up for themselves? Or could Ken be lying? PsyGremlinPrata! 09:35, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
They probably don't have the balls. They'll speak up after this battle is over, but probably not before. As for Ken lying, I don't think he'd completely lie in such an obvious manner when the people he's lying about are as powerful as him, but he's probably exaggerating their response a bit. Like he's sent TerryH about 50 emails along the lines of "How about this RobS, eh?!" and Terry finally responded with "Yeah it's a bit excessive" or something, which Ken reads as "I fully agree with you and hate RobS now", just like he reads silence as explicit approval.

To cover this battle how about Conservapedia:The Great War? Aceof SpadesSilverbrain.png 02:10, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm not sure of Great War fully encompasses the viciousness we're seeing here. Maybe Antietam? I mean, it looks to me as though shit has hit the fan. I've followed CP for maybe a year now, and I have to wonder if it's ever been this bad.--"Shut up, Brx." 02:16, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Because most of us have grown up under the rule of law it can be difficult to remember that jurisdiction is a practical matter as well as a theoretical one. If a court lacks the ability to enforce its judgements they are worthless. The only person who can effectively sanction Ken is Andy, and he's shown no interest whatsoever in doing so. Anyone other than Andy might as well be trying Harry Potter spells, or the power of prayer for all the good it will do in getting rid of Ken. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 13:32, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

I lol'd at the history of that page. It was originally Sysop and Admin Abuse, but TK had protected it. What, you have a complaint? TOO FUCKING BAD!

Ken says all kinds of junk. Remember how many times he was going to be leaving CP and be too busy to pay attention to it? That said, if Andy is going to intervene, it has to be on Ken's side. What happens if he sides with Rob? That means he's against Ken, Ed Poor and TerryH at least. Supposing the worst, siding with Rob means he loses 3 sysops, and who does that leave him with? Getting rid of Rob at this point is the path of least resistance. It'll fuck the wiki up even worse, but Andy's repeatedly proven that he doesn't give a damn about CP being a wiki.

The Panel had 9 edits and 8 of them were on talk pagesimg, very close to breaking the 90/10 rule. It would be funny if someone brought up the Ken-Rob issue to the Panel's talk pageimg (the last comment on there was from October 2007). The Student Panel is a hilarious failure. --Night Jaguar (talk) 05:01, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
The Student Panel was a failure even way back in 2007, mostly because it was overriding the "meritocracy" concept even more than all the sysop promotions combined. We were trying to build an online community, and Andy suddenly presented us with an anonymous council that ruled over all of us simply because he said so. I think the reaction of the entire community (including the sysops!) was basically "...wait, what?" Nobody (except maybe for Ken, though even he must've been nervous) liked the fact that all discussion was suddenly frozen in place because The Shadow Council was reviewing this case in private. Hilariously, a short time later, the sysops made their own secret Shadow Council in the form of the SDG, but that's another story. --Sid (talk) 08:47, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey Rob[edit]

Whatever the ideological differences you have with most of us, I admire you for what you are trying to achieve. Most likely you also knew that it wouldn't change anything even before you started. Most of us here support you not because we would like conservapedia to be a better place, but because of a sense of fairness. Why don't the powers at CP think like that?--Buscombe (talk) 07:26, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Ironic isn't it that the majority of people supporting Rob here tend to self-identify as 'liberal'. I think it's fair to say that many of those supporting Rob on cp are possibly parodists also, so they may tend to be 'liberal'. Whereas his conservative fellow travellers are lining up to either ignore him or actively oppose him. I leave others to draw their own conclusions from that. Oldusgitus (talk) 07:33, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
I think that the 'conservative fellow travellers' are actually little more than fascists, they do not want to engage and debate but only exercise authority without responsibility. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 07:41, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Although looking at a couple threads above, some of us appear to want Ken to win and have the place walk further down the road of madness. Personally I would like to see rob prevail and bring some sanity back to the site and open it so the place can be brought a little more towards a fact based track rather than one of pure ideology. However I am not sure how he can accomplish this with so much authoritarian opposition and indifference there.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 09:35, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
If Conservative wins it won't get any madder, it will just be business as usual. If Conservative ever got de-admined, which won't happen, Conservapedia would have a chance to eventually become an actual right-wing reference source rather than the shambles it has been for the last few years.--

I disagree, if/when Ken wins, we're going to see a massive increase in crazy over there. Purely because he will see that as tacit approval of his tactics and thus he'll ramp up his efforts to the nth degree, in order to destroy atheism on the internet. Firstly, all the talkpages of his pet articles will be re-locked, all his essay talkpages will be redirected again, the Community Portal will be burnt to the ground, we'll see several dozen essays on how trhe good Xian weeded out the deep-cover atheist in their midst, these will fill up all of MPL, Ken will remind all the remaining sysops on a daily basis that it was he who fought the good fight. The sysops won't know this, because Ken will burn their talkpages every 2 minutes. There will be more red telephone messages, especially if Rob stays here, and Ken will be like a 5-year-old, going "neener-neener-neener!" And then... one day...

This isn't even some kind of issue of OH NOES HE'S TRYING TO INJECT LIBERALISM BY CORRECTING SOME OF THE SHIT IN THE EVOLUTION ARTICLE, it has nothing to do with the liberalism/conservatism stuff at CP which has cost so many people their heads.

Ammo[edit]

I doubt it will help, but it's worthwhile pointing the sysops towards these discussions: [2][3][4]&[5] - proof that Conservative is internet troll kdbuffalo, and it's worth reminding Karajou that that was his initial reaction to Ken. Also, posts from TK and PJR which indicate that Ken has been a disruptive influence on CP since the early days. I'm sure a search of the various chat groups would reveal more information.

Well, up until about March of 2008, McCain was frequently described by both sides as a RINO. Then everyone either realized he wasn't or decided it was politically inconvenient to describe him as one. For the record, while he certainly fit Andy's definition of a RINO, he was no Lincoln Chafee--Willfully Wrong (talk) 16:23, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
To be fair, his big campaigning point was that he was a "Maverick" RINO. I really do wonder what kind a candidate the Republicans will field for 2012. In any way, be prepared for a whitewash of said person's CP page by Andy the moment it's announced... Doraemon話そう!話そう! 16:53, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Mh, I wanna go out on a limb with this. Let's say the Teabaggers actually make it till the government shuts down. I'm pretty sure even FauxNews wouldn't blame everything on Obama if that happend - after all FN seems Republican but not fundie style. Of course the other media won't do the same and blame it all on Obama. So if most of the media straightens out the story and report that Obama needs the money but the Teabaggers just wanted something to blame on Obama, wouldn't that make the Teabaggers look really really bad? I mean they have harmed the country long term just to win the next election. And with only 15-20% of Americans coming from that direction, the probability of another 2008 - a RINO and a relatively normal Democrat being the canidates - would rise, wouldn't it? Because if the Teabaggers are unpopular I can't see the Republicans letting a Teabagger make the nomination, therefor RINO. so everything the Teabaggers are doin' is shooting themselves in the foot... Am I getting this right or did I miss something? --ʤɱ heretic 17:31, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Andy threw McCain under the RINO bus terminology long ago, I think right before or after the presidential elections. I don't remember what one, insignificant reason Andy had to blast him, but that's the usual way CP runs. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:52, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Although Conservapedia's officialimg statement is that he is not a RINO.Ateafish (talk) 19:06, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
John McCain had been concidered a "Rhino" a long time now, judging by the comments I sample here and there (ie Free Republic). It has been quite amazing actually how quickly the republicans made a U-turn and threw this man under the bus once he "lost". I remember during the election campaign comments about how he has "experience" and he is a "war veteran" and "mature" and stuff and suddenly... "stupid mccain this" and "should shut his mouth up that". My personal theory is that republicans, being a bunch of ego-less collectivists of cource, suffer from a kind of anxiety where if some member of "the party" shows weakness then he must be cut off. I have come to this conclusion observing the responce to Katrina, whereas a normal people would be talking about logistics, leaves, reconstruction etc, they actually just started bashing New Orkeans as if it has somehow "shamed" America by getting flooded and its a bit of a typical behavior of that mindset. Similar to the one informing thought processes like "if he is poor then its his own fault therefore doesnt deserve any help" So in a similar vein, McCain "lost" therefore he should go commit sepuku or something. The fact that members of his family are also quite libera-ish (his daughter and gay rights etc) also rub them the wrong way, presumably for his failure to beat her up into submission or something. Sen (talk) 21:12, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
The Tea Party does have the potential (and already has to an extent) to make the Republicans unelectable. Even Andy has acknowledged that. In primaries, the most extreme candidates tend to do better, but then in the proper elections where they're not just seducing Republicans but also Independents and the odd Democrat, they must gravitate back into the centre. Hence Andy admitted that almost Mitt will probably be chosen, he would like to see a more Conservative candidate (like Bachman) but worries that they'd have problems being elected.
In the end, it boils down to the fact that... in a stupid 2 party system, Tea Partiers will ALWAYS vote Republican, whether that be Palin, or Fred Karger. But Independents can sway either way, so the best strategy is to field a moderate Republican. If the Tea Party get their way and put a wingnut in, the Tea Partiers will be over the moon but they'd lose the voters who really matter. Doraemon話そう!話そう! 04:04, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
He's always been a RINO. Ann Coulter, for example, said she'd vote for Hilary Clinton if McCain won the nomination. Conservatives just wouldn't admit it once he won because they wanted to put up a unified front. Afterwards McCain completely lost it and rebranded himself as a staunch Conservative (am I supposed to capitalize that? It's getting tiresome to do so all the time), going so far as to claim he never posited himself as a maverick. He does still, however, show a willingness to compromise which compromises his new image as a stoic unyielding bastion of Conservatism.--"Shut up, Brx." 04:11, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
In that case, he has what the Tea Party doesn't have: a willingness to compromise. Hence why the debt-ceiling crisis is currently toxic for the Tea Party because they just can't accept that not everything goes their way all the time. Doraemon話そう!話そう! 04:23, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Legacy[edit]

TK's legacy was an absurdly high number of blocked IPs, Rob's could be a record-breaking low number:

Number of Active Range Blocks at Conservapedia on July 23, 2011

# ∞ Blocks 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 222

How long with this last?

CP
Here is the number of blocked IPs over time at CP: when TK was made sysop (again) at the end of 2008, he immediately went on a blocking spree of unknown proportion. In Sep 2011 he became ill, and the number of blocks decreased. He tried to get back on track, but failed. Without anyones intervention, the number of blocked IPs would near 9,000,000 over the next years - those were the infinitely blocked. But Rob changed this dramatically!
wikipedia
For quite a while there were more IPs infinitely blocked at CP then being blocked at all at wikipedia. The quivering lines of the graph indicate a rapid fluctuation, caused by quite short blocks. Please be aware of the different scales of the y-axes!

Rob gaming a graph[edit]

Rob just put up a percentage change graph on Main that makes it look like federal outlays have grown wild with Obama. In reality, if you look at that graph for a hundred years, you'll see that the percentage change is minuscule in an historical context; it actually barely registers. You have to redraw the graph by switching under "units" to "percentage change". Rob might be trying to do the right thing by CP's community, but he's still a propagandist at heart. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:53, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

You have to cut n' paste the url for the graph (it won't take the part after "graph/?2" as you can see): http://research.stlouisfed.org/fred2/graph/?s[1][id]=FYONET | Funny, the first graph you come across is spending in millions, and what you see is that spending grew wildly under Republicans. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:53, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Or you can click the link to the graph in absolute numbers instead of using the % change. Old news -- conservative media outlets have been using that figure since Obama's first budget passed. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 21:11, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Yep, Rob's goal is so in sight[edit]

I don't know how to capture the block log so i can't make a dif, sorry. But Yep, reverting a synop is still a valid block reason--Mikalos209 (talk) 18:49, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

That's not an absurd concept. Reverting someone that's been vetted by the community is usually asking for trouble. However, it's likely best to give a warning and a short block instead of CP's 5 year blocks.--"Shut up, Brx." 20:01, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
True but, the edit was Douglas removing a list of games because "They are filth", which was met with a 2 week (short) block, no warnings or anything--Mikalos209 (talk) 20:03, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
I have been vetted by our community, but if I claimed in our mainspace that Christianity is to blame for the recent Japan earthquake/tsunami, even a random IP would and should have every right to revert me. If Andy claimed in the CP mainspace that the Earth is circling the Moon and not the other way around, normal editors wouldn't have an actual right to revert him without prior discussion. --Sid (talk) 20:14, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Sid, what the fuck is your endgame? Letting people revert Andy? Are you just doing this for lols, or have you gone completely insane and think there's a chance? Occasionaluse (talk) 20:19, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Having an endgame implies a certain desired outcome, which in turn implies that I should give a fuck and worry about developments that might run against said outcome. And in the more than four years that I've watched CP, I learned not to worry. Instead, I just do my thing by poking and prodding the stuff that irks me, and then I lean back and watch what happens. Because ultimately, it doesn't really matter if Rob manages to reform policies or if CP gets a Blocking Foreman or if he loses his admin rights - every development makes CP more interesting in its own way. --Sid (talk) 20:28, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Per Douglas: he should've been watching over his shoulder. Rob claims the ruling was repealed by Andy, but alas, that must have been behind closed doors where only a few sysops can actually read his ruling. He can't be arsed to change the rule so people can see that the fabled Conservapedia has a faulty rule and that all with blocking powers can actually see it. The rule is still there. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 16:36, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Nevermind, as Rob's next comment shows Andy did change the rules, but he couldn't grow a pair and do it himself, so Rob edited the rules. However, discuss it all they'd like... in the end, Douglas can just ignore all inquiries and let the next rule stand: Undoing someone else's block can result in a loss of blocking privileges. Hooray for abuse! AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 16:52, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I like how Andy starts to nitpick his opponent on a made-up technicality (Andy asking if he was ever actually in a foxhole) before being quickly shot down and having to be reminded that nowadays, that's a symbolic statement. Either Andy doesn't know that (unlikely) or that's the best way he can think of to discredit his opponent. How sad. άλφαTalk 17:07, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Who gives you the right to sit in judgement?[edit]

This section has been moved her from the Saloon Bar --ʤɱ federalist 23:35, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

I'm a relatively new member of conservapedia.

As you know we get a lot of hate directed at us from this site. The hate is based on the basis that you are superior to us because you are oh so clever and smart. You think conservatives and christians are dumb and naive. You think parents concerned about liberal indoctrination of their children in public schools are fundamentalist. You thinking being a patriotic American in 'extreme' and makes you a lunatic. You think all these things, are ever so mean about us, yet you can't stop obsessing over us and charting our every post, thought and deed. Liberals are far more obsessed with conservatives than vice versa. Its like you can't tolerate that someone thinks differently to you and that not everyone likes to think they are the children of apes. I love Jesus Christ and have been saved by him. I am not stupid. You people are stupid and mean. I think you should take a long look in the mirror sometime and stop being so mean. I really like art and flowers and music. There is more to me than my conservatism or even my religion. I have some friends who are liberal, but once I went to college most of my old liberal friends drifted away. I made new friends but they are all conservative and christian. I think this is sad. I make an effort with people and don't judge them. Yet liberals judge conservatives all the time and hold them in contempt. I think you lot are really sad and stupid and mean. I don't know why you take such pleasure from this. I think you really need to re-evaluate yourselves because you all resemble schoolyard bullies the way you stalk conservapedian users and write such hateful and hurtful things about them.

I don't judge anyone based on creed, religion or politics. I judge people on their actions, statements and how they treat others. People like Karajou, Jpatt and Ken come across as hateful, hypocritical and nasty scumbags who'd rather hate the world around them than understand the different view points it contains. Hence I'll judge them on that rather than their beliefs. Which I believe is a valid reason to be critical. Aceof SpadesSilverbrain.png 22:12, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
CP's conservatism and religious outlook actually has very little to do with my dislike of it - several editors come across as plain nasty people who'd rather block the entire world from editing or viewing their website than allow any outside input that contradicts their views or actions. I've always judged people on their character - their opinions are their own, even if I don't like them.
Also your first sentence explains your thoughts. Do a few edits around one of the bigger or pet articles and see what happens. SJ Debaser 22:20, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
We don't criticise it because it's conservative. It makes a mockery of conservatism. We criticise it because it brooks no dissent or criticism of itself, is staffed by power-tripping hypocrites, sycophants and trolls while good constructive users go unnoticed until they invariably step on someone's toes and get banned (see AlanE). I don't look at CP because I'm a conservative-obsessed liberal. I look at it to see what happens when ignoramuses with persecution complexes are given unrestrained power. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 23:27, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Since the subject got brought up, here's another Free Republic thread I am particularly fond of. I especially like the images of 9/11, the rather uncontested calls and implied postings regarding nuking a western 10.000.000 population metropolis and the callings for "Allah Akh..." oh, my mistake. I meant "God is lord" in all capitals here and there. Sen (talk) 22:15, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Hello Conservagirl. I disagree and agree with you. I reject a lot of conservative viewpoints on a lot of issues, I am much nearer to being a "liberal" than a "conservative". That said, in a society where peoples of different opinions live together, people need the ability to calmly and politely negotiate the issues. Hence, I disagree with conservatives, but I don't like mocking them (maybe I am on occassion guilty, because mockery is a tempting vice, but I try to avoid falling to that temptation). This site often does like to mock them; on the other hand, Schlafly & co. like to mock liberals too, so that is a criticism of them as well as a criticism of this site.
I think there are legitimate criticisms that can be made of Conservapedia's management style, and other aspects of it, which this site makes - but not just this site, quite a few conservatives make them too. See e.g. this page by a former Conservapedia sysop. Another example would be how many conservatives attacked the "Conservative Bible Project" (Joseph Farah springs to mind, but quite a few more mainstream conservatives opposed it too - rewriting the Bible is not a very conservative thing to be doing.) Look at sites founded by conservative refugees from Conservapedia, like A Storehouse of Knowledge or Ameriwiki, to see it isn't just this site, or just liberals, that criticise them.
At the same time, some people here seem to me to have an obsession with certain Conservapedia sysops which is approaching stalking, especially User:Conservative. User:Conservative has his flaws, even many, and I think there is room for legitimate criticism, but the constant mocking and microanalysis of his every deed isn't right.
I think to some extent Conservapedia(CP) and RationalWiki(RW) are a mutually reinforcing negative influence on each other. RW brings out the worse in CP, and CP brings out the worse in RW. (((Zack Martin))) 22:30, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

You hate that people think differently to you and have embraced Christ. The hate I've read here particularly from Psygremlin leads me to believe that you are consumed by hate, and have no love whatsoever. 'Shows that you're doomed over there'. Mr Schlafly is an honourable and decent man and my father is friends with his family. How dare you? You people have no respect for the persons behind the computer screen they are just targets for you to destroy.

I do however hate their bigoted small minded attitudes towards others, in particular towards homosexuals and non-xtians. Sort out the cess pool that is cp, go and remove the hate and lie filled articles about homosexuality, about muslims and islam. Go remove all the manifest lies and distortions in the Obama articles. Go remove that moronic Obamas Muslim Agenda article. Go and do something about ken's dribbling insanity and lie filled articles about atheism and obesity.

How dare I? How dare you make assumptions based on what I said. The very fact that you posted here means that you are likely to be blocked for doing so by the Conservapedia sysops, Sharon. That's the "tolerance and love" they preach. In addition, I'll forgive your other comments based on ignorance (or that fact you're a victim of Andy's home-school brainwashing) - these are not good people you are hanging around with. They are bitter, egotistical, in some cases creepy, in others mad and they will throw you under the first bus that comes along if it suits their cause. (That's a metaphor by the way). Have you not seen how they turn on their own? Now, I'd love to debate you some, my little trollette, but my time is precious, so I can't give you more than 5 minutes a month of my time. See, I too can debate like a conservative. PsyGremlinTala! 09:39, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
Mr Schlafly may be an honourable decent man in real life. On CP, however, he's nothing more than a weak, fearful, small-minded, green-eyed ignoramus who will stop at nothing to promote his idea of 'conservatism' (i.e. anything he likes). Do you believe beauty is subjective? If so, you're a filthy liberal, according to Andy. As for the rest of your post about us having no respect for those on the other side of the screen, well you've just perfectly described sysop TK, who was #2 at CP until his death in December. Did Andy bother to find out what was happening when his right-hand man suddenly disappeared and cut off communication? No, which was why Andy only found out about his death over a month later - from us. EddyP Great King! Disaster! 09:53, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

The funny thing is it's a fairly amateurish opening, too- it's mostly played by club players and <1600's. It's pretty much been done to death in grandmaster games, so most really good chess players tend to disregard it in favor of more tactical openings. So it really is the perfect fit for Ken. --The Emperor Kneel before Zod! 06:08, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I commend Rob for his attempt at CP Glasnost (or as I like it, Glasnobs). However, it's doomed to failure. To borrow a phrase from our TK article, some CP sysops are mall cops, not encyclopedists. They're there precisely because they want wield power over others arbitrarily (even if it's pathetically small power) and it's not like there are too many other sites dumb enough to trust them with authority. --Night Jaguar (talk) 08:36, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

Proof once again that CP was never about community, but people like Kara wielding power. At least Angry Bear has the balls to speak out, unlike the other faceless cowards in the Star Chamber. However, what's funny is that Kara can't look past his petty prejudices at the bigger problem - for him it's ALL about Rob being on RW and nothing to do with Ken crapping on his wiki. Seriously, the man is uncapable of rational thought. Nice try Rob, but it's time to pack it in.
What is interesting is that now the spineless curs have set a precedent - Ken is untouchable and any attempts to try and calm him down - and let's face it, after this he's going to be out of control, will result in a smackdown for the protesting sysop.
Ken has officially inherited TK's crown - let the ridiculisation of CP commence at full speed. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 10:52, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Come on psy, now that kenny boy is untouchable CP is over. It will become a parody of itself in no time at all as ken shits at will wherever and whenever he wants. Nothing TK could have done would have come close, although TK set this whole thing in motion. I wish he were still alive to see how well his plan to destroy cp has succeded. I doubt even andy will have the balls to revert even kens more lunatic crap now. This is going to be fucking hilarious.

I don't edit on CP at all anymore, not for a long time now, except for a few recent edits to their vegetarian page.

It's times like this I really appreciate the double standard of CP, and how much laxer it is now that TK's gone. You couldn't initialise "RW" without getting blocked for five years for "liberal trolling etc," but sysops are now allowed to use it openly on the site founder's talk page. Props to Rob for acknowledging that we are "an open, thriving, talented and successful wiki project", albeit one that "started from nothing but foul-mouthed trolls" - he has a point. SJ Debaser 11:43, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Rob's really right that none of those guys could even hack it as a Wikipedia editor. In his own way, despite his fleeting integrity problems, Rob is the gentleman people imagined Philip to be as the only other CP admin to have the scrote to stand up to the abuses of these small minded, hate filled, and truly stupid tyrants. Philip sabotaged his image by letting the mask slip to reveal a base liar some of us have come to know on arSK. But Rob has admirably risen to the occasion and should be commended for making an honest effort to reform the unreformable. Good show Rob. Despite our differences, I'm not above saying that I've got a lot of respect for you right now. I wish you weren't so weird about the commie stuff and completely incoherent sometimes, but I now know that in your heart you're a good guy and I'm happy to have rubbed elbows with you even if it was sometimes in a tussle. It's time to call a spade a spade and finally address Schlafly for the lying coward he is, and just move on. You can walk straight with your head held high.

Tell me, Rob, what is your opinion of Philip Rayment and aSK? Beware of those who will love you now, while you disagree with CP, but come to hate you as soon as you disagree with them (as you inevitably will at some point).

I will still disagree with him on muc hof his politics and religion, people do that with each other. However I have grudgingly gained a tremendous amount of respect for Rob and would quite happily take him for a drink should I ever make it to the US or he to make it to the UK.

This amazes me quite a bit, there I was thinking that the opinions of somebody do not constitute a picture of their character, but that their actions did. What amazes me even more is that some people here seem to believe that everything somebody thinks makes their character. Psy even says it out right, a little bit down from here: "That doesn't mean I forgive him the bullshit he's spouted in the past." and Nutty keeps constantly attacking peoples integrity not by what they did, but by what the believe to be the truth (brx is an exception). There is Maratrean being a worse person - and even wished he would leave this project - not because he did attack somebody personally (until now), but for the sole reason that he believes something he mad up himself (I question whether Nutty hates Jesus, Mohammed, Buddha and - well - every other philosopher that has ever worked in the branch of metaphysics). I will say it clearly: You behave like children. As rational people we shouldn't dismiss a person's opinion on the account of one of his being wrong (Oh yeah you don't do that - but, Nutty (expecially you Nutty), keep spouting of bullshit about Mara and several other people not because they are anti-social dicks, but for the whole reason that you want them to go away, because you don't want to read them anymore.
And what do we have also? People telling other people to shut up because they are annoyed with them - so instead of being reasonable people, listening to new arguments and ignoring the already dismissed once - we have a bunch of raving dickheads actively trying to TROLL people off the wiki - that these mostly belong to the old guard does not constitute a characteric of RW, but only the question if it wasn't time to change from a project that was only their to say bad things about bad people because one got kicked off a wiki. Not because they are damaging, but because they are annoyed with them. Are you serious? Your own "wellbeing" (if we can even "not being annoyed by someone" call that) is worth more than another one's right not to be trolled by anybody? If these people annoy you so much, how about building up a little strength and taking a little look - I swear it wont take you longer than split second - at the sig of every post? And if it is somebody that truly annoys you, just scroll right over it! How hard can it be?
Can we for the sake of goat and all this wiki tries to represent, stop personally attacking each other all the time? It is not that I'm annoyed about it, actually I find it quite enternaining if people I don't give a fuck about troll each others brains away, it is that it makes you look like pitty sorryful idiots that are so desperate to get their will (whatever it might be) that they are willing to cause people to leave the site for the goal of making their metaphorical ass-cushion just a little bit more softer.

I don't know if there's a racial undercurrent, but it is funny that the article pretends Obama is the spender and Congress the prudent credit card company.

Seems to me he's just running around with his arse on fire, yapping ineffectually at Kendoll. I can't imagine how he thinks he's going to get anything done with only peons on his side, and every other sysop now pissed at him. If he could get Andy to support him, that would be a good play but I don't see that ever happening. It just seems like he's found a really long, drawn out way to commit suicide over there. At least the other sysops who had got to this point had the dignity to get it over with quickly. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:44, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

He knows he's lost and he's just letting out some of his frustration, I think. Imagine if you had been "working with" people like Ed Poor, Karajou and Conservative for years and now you're leaving. You'd lash out a bit too, I imagine. I know I would. X Stickman (talk) 20:54, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
I hope I'm wrong but I get the impression Rob has all but given up. He will continue to fight, because fundamentally I think he's a nice guy who happens to have fallen in with morons on cp and he can't do anything else. TBH I would feel the same in his position. he's seeing something he thought was good collapse and he wants to try to save it. Sure he has a commie paranoia and some other strange views but equally there's an otherwise intelligent bloke I know in the UK who think news corp did nothing wrong in in hacking milly dowlers phone. I genuinely feel sympathy for Rob, I think many of his views are crap but fundamentally I think he's simply a good guy whose political and religious views I disagree with. And I know hundreds of those. I was even drinking with many of them last night at a wedding reception. I do wish Rob good luck, I think he has failed and will end up walking away.

Same here. It can be extremely frustrating to have a discussion with Rob, but I've never seen him engage in the kind of bullying his fellow sysops seem to live for. But it's time to go out with dignity instead of launching yet another futile attempt at reforming the site in opposition to every single one of the other admins. Rob, these guys don't care about rules or accountability, they simply want their tiny online empire to rule as they please. Don't waste your time sparring with them until someone kicks you out, just write up a heartfelt parthian shot and let these idiots wallow in their own mess.

"whitewashed"[edit]

I got behind a little bit and couldn't keep up with all of User:Conservative's trolling Andy's talk page. He referenced twice that his comments on my talk page were being "whitewashed". If any of his posts were oversighted, it had to have been him cause I don't have oversight. So I spent some time trying to understand what he was talking about. At best, all I can figure is, the comments on my talk page proceeded without any reference to him. That's what he means by "whitewashed", he was ignored by the whole CP Community on my talk page. Later I called him on his cp:Last wordism, and he's been silent ever since. nobsput down the toilet seat 22:45, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

I have the impression that Kendoll is really hurt by anything negative said about him. Either it causes him to sulk, or sends him in to a frenzied counterattack. He also tries desperately to hide the comments after the fact so he never has to see them again. He'll be back in a few hours, and he probably won't be pleased. Expect another couple of days of him crying about how mean you are to him, and how you're an atheist evolutionist backstabber who should lose his sysop rights. Eventually one or other of you is going to get kicked off CP, and I'm pretty sure it's going to be you.

He just loves the attention, whether it's positive or negative. He throws a big fit and everybody ignores him. Last wordism say's it all, "At best, last wordism is childish. At worst, it reflects a lack of restraint or bullying, a characteristic of wrongdoing or sin." $50 says he part the part about sin in. nobsput down the toilet seat 23:17, 30 July 2011 (UTC)

(od) I THINK that the whitewashing was me following site rules and replacing the more egregious personal attacks with the "personal remarks removed" template.

The committee to kill RobS reaches critical mass[edit]

According to Kendollimg the committee now consists of Kendoll, Cokeeyes, Popeye and a shadowy fourth member. I have to assume it's either 188 or JPratt, since I doubt Joaquin gives a damn about all this intrigue. I'm betting JPratt. That means that more than half the remaining sysops are in favour of the ousting of Rob. If they all get vocal about it, even Andy's famed ignoring skills will be sorely tested. Oh nobbykins, you're pretty much done for. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:00, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

It never ceases to amaze me quite how nasty all these supposed Christians are. There doesn't seem to be one jot of compassion in the lot of them. Every thing they espouse is selfish.

From the TVtropes page on Conservapedia: "As several people have pointed out, a quick look at Conservapedia will show that it's much less about conservatism and Christianity, than of the power-crazed televangelist fundamentalism.

That's a bad sign. As you fall out of disfavour Andy strips your rights bit by bit. Of course it might be due to lobbying by Ken being afraid that Rob might give out his IP if he is cashiered. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator

That's the main (community) problem Ken's two anonymous sysops caused: People are going to suspect potentially innocent sysops of secretly hating Rob. Personally, I'm surprised Karajou wasn't among the anonymous sysops so far (unless he decided to de-cloak while the new guy requested to be anonymous?), but my current bets are on Douglas and... Ed or Jpatt. --Sid (talk) 19:09, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
For all his faults, I don't see JPatt as the kind of guy who would even give a shit about these children popping off at each other. He's pretty workmanlike on the wiki and friendly to everyone on the lists that were leaked, as well as TK in IMs even when TK was being TK. My money's on Ken, Karaturd, TerryH, Ed, and Douglas (who was pretty bitchy when Rob went to his talk page and seems like a dick who gets off on causing suffering). Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 19:20, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
I would have sympathy for Rob if, say, Conservapedia had just been up for a year and this whole shootout of petty craziness was the first of its kind, or if Rob was a decent good faith editor trying actually improve the quality of the information on the site, or if such a dressing down might actually provide the impetuous for change. Unfortunetly, the answer to each of those conditions are, in order: Its not, he isn't, and it wont.
We have seen time and time again the Sysop abuses and insanity, and Rob has been a more than willing participant each time. He was perfectly happy to stand by during the reigns of terror from TK and Bugler, to do nothing of substance to stop the massive clusterfudge that was the Lenski affair. He has been personally present (and contributed) to the various purges, the hypocritical edit wars and even stopped by RW (which is supposed to be a no-no onto itself however that's another matter) to derail discussions with non-sequiturs and concern trolling. Its is only now, when he is officially in the cross-hairs himself, that we are supposed to feel bad for him?
I'm sorry but the "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me, fool me three times, thank you mistress may I have another" clause kicked in a while ago for him. He has known what CP is for some time now, known exactly what kind of "Good Christians" populated and ran it, and has demonstrated not one lick of contrition or regret that would justify a kind word in his regard. PJR, for all his (many) flaws, did try to curb Andy's crazy and when he finally quit out of protest one could get a sense of a legitimately decent human who failed but at least made the effort. RW itself was founded by former editors who caught on pretty quick to Andy's theocratic megalomania and have worked since then, for better or worse, to show how little the Emperor is wearing. Rob's recent downfall has been brought about, not by an act of internal conscience or outside malfeasance, but by rubbing a fellow Sysop the wrong way and getting into a pissing contest with him.
Now, is this all broad strokes? Of course. Am I missing details that could possibly mitigate the situation? Perhaps. However here is what I have seen: Rob has been just as much a tit as any other Sysop on CP up until a few weeks ago and is now getting a first hand taste of the same abuses he, either directly or indirectly, participated in over the course of his time there. From where I sit that is not injustice, that is reaping what you have sown.
I may be but a humble lurker and outside observer but Rob, if you are listening (and I know you are), the point boils down to this: Your ideology is, at its base, flawed. It predicates its premises on willful ignorance at best and outright, bald face lying and bullying at its worst. The truth needs nothing to prop it up, support it, or make excuses for it. If nothing else your experiences at CP should demonstrate this. How you commune with the higher power of your choice is your call. However to stand beside those who, by their actions if not their words, fly in the face of what you claim to be the guiding moral light of your life, is not only hypocrisy, but foolishness.
Your downfall at CP is self inflicted and deserved and I do not shed a tear of sorrow for it. However I do hope this chapter makes you take a moment to reflect on the last few years of your life, give a hard re-evaluation of what it is you really believe, what it is you really hold has true, and who it is you really wish to be counted among when you stand before your god for judgment. --Tygrehart

Truthfully, and I don't know this for certain, but I suspect it has made Rob reconsider his standpoint. It's hard not to reconsider when you are in a stand up fight and the people who punch on your side are the people who you have spent years condemning. Will Rob turn left tonight? Not a fucking chance. Will Rob EVER turn left? Not a fucking chance. Will Rob realise that not all of us on the left are satanists who want to rape his cat and drink his blood?

(EC)A lot of what you say is true, but in fairness to Rob he has not been a constant editor at CP, unlike Karajou or Ed, and so may not be aware of many things - for example he claimed to miss the Lenski Affair. But yes, I agree that he should have realized what CP was a long time ago and I think it's only Ken's unfettered ridiculousness which is making him realize. EddyP Great King!

Response to Tygrehart[edit]

  • I was inactive during Bugler, know nothing of the episodes other than hearsay.
  • I was inactive during Lensk; the Wikipedia Spiring 2010 offensive to purge Lipson & RW was an attempt top also purge Lenski from WP's entry, however I was only learning the details during that affair and it was contingent on success of the two other objectives (Conservaleaks supports this);
  • I blocked one editor during the Knight of the Long Knives, as best I recall, and a few socks; I unblocked Sid several times, and AmesG as well. No other "purges" have I ever participated in. My opposition to arbitrary and unfair blocking is apparent in (a) my actions over several years (see block log); (a) Conservaleaks; and (c) cp:Conservapedia:Community_Portal#Arbitrary_and_unfair_blocking
  • Bull to "stopped by RW to derail discussions"; I've always come here with discrete purpose in mind.
  • Rob's recent downfall -- you're a blind idiot with the analytical powers of Ken Demyer. nobsput down the toilet seat 00:59, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
I must admit Rob, I am impressed. Your rebuttal is clear, concise, makes your case in neat points with a few footnotes to back them up...and completely misses my point. Don't worry, I don't fault you for that. You're a detail man, a "deal-maker-negotiator-problem-solver" in your own words. Allow me then to restate the root problem that has you in your current mess.
CP is, to put it bluntly, a joke. It is a vanity project started by Andrew Schlafly intended to be a "conservative alternative" to Wikipedia. It predicates itself on the basic idea that there is "liberal bias" in all other forms of media. In response to this it hopes to insert a "conservative standpoint" in what can be presumed to be an attempt to balance the books and report "the Truth." Fair enough. Its a free country and people have a right to thier opinion.
However, where it all falls down is that Conservapedia does not report "the Truth." While it could be argued that sources like Wikipedia have "liberal bias" if one defines such as having to take multiple perspectives on topics, weigh them on the available evidence and draw the best conclusions it can, Conservapedia actively and knowingly inserts bad information, heresy, unsupported assertions and outright lies into its articles. From creationism to birtherism, to homophobia and beyond, it has backed psuedoscience, crank, and logical fallacies at every turn. Attempts by anyone to correct this, or even discuss it, are thwarted with insults, threats and bannings. It has not ever been about reporting an alternate view, it is about recycling the same demonstrably wrong and repeatedly refuted "facts" over and over again to prop up its own narrow ideology. It is not, as Wikipedia tries to be, a cataloging of the world and history as we presently understand it but a view of the world and history as seen by one man, Andrew Schlafly. Anything that does not fit that world view is decried, denounced, and demonized.
Unfortunately, this is really nothing new. CP has ALWAYS been like this. Its unofficial but well enforced mission statement has been to support the views of Andrew Schlafly. To this end its hand picked staff is made up of sycophants and suckups, those who agree with him or support his assertions unquestioningly. This has led to the collection of individuals with the same flawed perspective and willingness to forcibly silence anyone who dares challenge them or whatever tripe they choose to put on the Main Page. User:Conservative didn't suddenly wake up one morning a week ago and decide to start posting pictures of flying kitties or creating "atheists are fat hur hur hur" articles. He's been doing things like that for YEARS without a single complaint from the headman. The abuse of blocking authority did not start overnight, it has been a constant and necessary practice since day one. Even if you succeeded in making the blocking policy more transparent and accountable, even if you were able to silence or get rid of User:Conservative, the fundamental flaw of CP remains; it is an intellectual and informational sink hole that tolerates no deviation from its party line and does not feel it requires one lick of accountability. Put as many layers of varnish on it as you like, but the turd is still a turd.
So how does this all relate to you, you might ask? Well, here's the thing. Up until a few weeks ago, you have been actively supporting and helping to propagate its intellectual dishonestly and well defended delusion. To say you were not personally there during Lenski and Bugler does not change the fact you did indeed know about them and STILL turned a blind eye. To say you did not personally block as many users as others does not change the fact you saw it happening and, until a few weeks ago, said or did nothing of substance. True TK and Conservative haven't made it easy to speak up, but even PJR knew when to cut his losses and leave. You've been a member of CP's inner circle for a good while now. You've been privy to its inner workings, in direct contact with your fellow sysops as well as the boss himself for at least a couple years. You KNEW very early on exactly what Conservapedia was at its core, you knew there was no real way to fix it, yet continued to willingly and without scruples assist it in its mission to spread willful ignorance, intolerance, and in some cases, outright hate. Now as the bell tolls and you gaze about at your once colleagues circling the wagons and sharpening the knives, the best you have to say in your defense really "I didn't know?" or "I wasn't as bad as the rest of them?" Had the winds of fate blown the other way and Conservative ended up being the odd man out, would we even be having this discussion right now?
Now again, in the end I do hope this whole experience has taught you a few things and made you really think about whom it is you choose to associate yourself with and what it is you really believe in this world. Please do not mistake my professional apathy toward your plight as personal malfeasance either. Truth be told, you are but another misguided soul who threw in his lot with the wrong crowd, did so willingly, and his getting what you deserve for it. All I will ultimately say is my analytical powers told me CP was festering shit-hole years ago. Not really sure why it took you so long to realize it. --Tygrehart
