Andy will not intervene.[edit]

This is now my prediction. He will simply ignore the shitstorm on his talk page and all over his wiki. He will not demote anyone, he will not give his judgement. Eventually, one or more of two things will happen:

  1. People will leave, fed up with the situation
  2. Conservapedia will share a characteristic with RW, and have semi-regular bouts of vitriolic exchange between certain users should they ever stumble across each other.

This is what I see happening.--User:Brxbrx/sig 20:17, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

I think Andy is hoping the situation will resolve itself without him ever having to exert himself. I'm sure he's sitting there hoping Rob will piss off so he can demote him and be done with it. The thing is though if Rob continues to be stubborn, it's just going to drag on and on because Andy is the only one with the power to break the deadlock. I just wonder how many days of continuous flamewar is Andy going to be able to keep his ignoring up through. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:25, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
IMO the flamewar will die down, and occasionally sputter up again. That's the way these things work.--User:Brxbrx/sig 20:31, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
"Let's see, I've got about 300 new messages, maybe I should go check my talk page...oooh, INSIGHT!img" Of course he won't intervene, he's been letting this go on for a week, despite how much he hates disunity. Röstigraben (talk) 20:32, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes andy, the rest of the planet being malnourished outside the western world doesnt exist--Mikalos209 (talk) 20:35, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

'Actually, actually' the problem is ... podpeople are taking over Conservapedia (or the editors are showing their true Reptilian character). Slightly more plausible than Conservapedia going into meltdown as participants realise *nobody really cares about them* (apart from the 'recreational rearrangers and rubbishers'). (talk) 16:35, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

I think…[edit]

…that I might have a handle on why Andy has been even more silent about this than he normally has been. Of course, just as easily, it could be bollocks, but here we go:

Forget about the crumbling of the dream and editors daring to Question Authority (which has got to be a slap in the face to an arch-conservative to Andy), I think it goes much deeper than that. Up until now, Andy has had plausible deniability over Ken's actions. If any potential or current client ever asks him about the nonsensical arguments appearing on Conservapedia, Andy could always argue
I run a conservative wiki which doesn't seek to emulate the censorship of Wikipedia. Personally I don't believe that Conservative's arguments are well made, well thought out, or even the actions of a mature person, but I believe that everyone has the right to speak their mind freely and, unlike Wikipedia, I won't censor him even though I don't agree with him

Of course, anybody who actually knows the site knows that is bollocks, but it's plausible bollocks, something you could just about get away with.
But now, Catch 22. What does Andy do? I get the feeling that he instinctively supports Conservative, and certainly doesn't want to be held accountable to the rules that other editors have to follow, and so the instinct isn't going to be to back Rob up. But the problem with that approach is that it's professional suicide. The moment that Andy backs Conservative he takes ownership of all those wonderful flying kitties, pony essays, and hur, hur, you're fat and so wrong approach to arguing. Now I'm sorry, I don't care how right-wing an organisation or client is, they ain't going to be retaining or hiring any lawyer who shows that level of debating strategy.
But, on the other hand, if he supports Rob, he's going to piss off at least two of the inner-circle, which is pretty much a guaranteed way to end up with a few more knives in his back to join the ones planted there by PJR and TK.
So what direction does Andy go? He's kind of fucked either way.

I also wonder if Andy is still harbouring ambitions. We know that he's tried politics, and got shot down. He's tried education, and been shot down. He's tried being a player in the conservative movement via Conservapedia, and failed. So now I wonder if maybe Andy's delusions of grandeur stretch to hoping to be nominated to be a judge if the right people get into power (the nomination itself is just a process of who you know, not what you know, unless it happens to be where the bodies are buried). Of course, having the nomination confirmed is a different matter, but I think Andy is delusional enough to think that, as it stands, Conservapedia isn't enough of a millstone around his neck to stop his nomination, but if Andy gets to be known as the Flying Kitty/Fat Pony lawyer who can't get a client…well even Andy's got to realise that would enough to sink him for good.--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 20:25, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

He can always rely on mummy's money.--User:Brxbrx/sig 20:28, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Because he's got it, I don't think it's money that Andy is really interested in. It's reputation, prestige and acknowledgement of his achievements (all of the things that his mother got), things that he just can't claim on his own merit.--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 20:37, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
The problem is, Andy already has supported and pushed kens crap before, so he can't claim to not "own it"--Mikalos209 (talk) 20:31, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Mmm, true. But the support wasn't whole hearted and could be backed away from ("I don't agree with what Conservative was writing, I was just trying to stop Conservative from being censored." is the kind of argument that could be used to backtrack from it). Getting rid of Rob to support Ken however, that really is a different level of support. It says to the wider world, I'd rather support flying kitties, ponies vs. and hur, hur, you're fat, over accountability and responsibility.--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 20:37, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Does anyone who Andy might possibly work with actually care about conservapedia, though? I mean, if he ran for a serious political office, his opponents could have their entire campaign simply be conservapedia's URL with "Want this?" written under it, but for the type of organisations Andy works for, I don't think it matters. Andy's been making ridiculous arguments on CP since almost day one and he still manages to find work. Also Andy's definition of "censorship" is vastly different to reality's definition. He could easily take Ken's side and claim he was defending Ken against liberal censorship being imposed by Rob, and it'd be consistent with all of his other claims of "censorship" (which, in andy's mind, simply means "calling a stupid idea stupid"). Hell, say a company does check up on his little project, they won't even see this battle between ken and rob. As soon as it's over, it's going to be wiped anyway, probably no matter who wins. X Stickman (talk) 01:04, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Andy is being silent because he has no leadership skills and is a bit cowardly. It's not enough that a site he participates on is rioting among itself and its leaders are in a nasty public conflict, but this is a site that he personally founded and maintains and controls, and those leaders were appointed by him. But he doesn't step in because he's afraid to try to sort it out, because doing so would mean making big changes. The man is the basest coward.--ADtalkModerator 01:40, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Oh dear. Maybe it's just one of CP's many instabilities, but wouldn't it be hilarious if Andy shut down to wiki to avoid dealing with the drama?--User:Brxbrx/sig 20:24, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

More Biblical Scientific Foreknowledge[edit]

A break from the CP Civil War. I'm just going to quote Andyimg, cuz it's just mindboggling:

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, intellectuals insisted that the world's population would grow larger than the food supply, resulting in mass starvation. Yet there are examples in both the Old and New Testaments of food being more plentiful than people expected. Indeed, by 2011 obesity was far more prevalent and harmful than hunger.

Maybe in rich countries obesity is a bigger problem than hunger, but worldwide this is not the case. About a billion people are malnourished. Hell, there's a famine going on in the Horn of Africa right now. And how is more food being available than expected in a story even close to being "scientific foreknowledge"? Arghhhh, there's so much wrong with this. --Night Jaguar (talk) 20:35, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

Well maybe if they had chosen conservatism and Jesus over Satan and Communist liberals things wouldn't be so bad for them. --Mikalos209 (talk) 20:37, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Didn't the UN just declare a famine in East Africa?--User:Brxbrx/sig 20:42, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
This is rush's favorite line. How can there be a world wide food problem, if there are fat people and i can buy any food i want at 3 am? He also talks about children with pot bellies in africa as signs that they have eaten too much.Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 20:44, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
As my AP euro teacher liked to say: The Miracle of Hyvee--Mikalos209 (talk) 20:45, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Wow. What's particularly sickening about that is that the swelling of the abdomen in children is a symptom of famine. --User:Brxbrx/sig 23:17, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
IS that what that actually is? --Mikalos209 (talk) 23:21, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Maybe you should have put a smiley after that because some people obviously can't detect sarcasm. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 01:19, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Yes. It's a very serious condition. Of course, it were were to truly believe in pure conservatism, Africa should be left to starve and not a single penny government money should be put into relief efforts. America has all the food because they "earned it" from working hard, unlike the lazy...</Ken>. Wingnuts truly do disgust me. Doraemon話そう!話そう! 23:36, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
No, that's Objectivism (related, but not the same). The conservative way would be to not allocate any government funds but to let private charities pitiably fail at doing do the legwork. Which would amount to a bunch of starvelings with all the Bibles they could possibly want. Yay.--User:Brxbrx/sig 23:44, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
As i said earlier: Well maybe if they had chosen conservatism and Jesus over Satan and Communist liberals things wouldn't be so bad for them. --Mikalos209 (talk) 23:45, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

What statement?--User:Brxbrx/sig 03:47, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

This is one of the ways politically conservative Christians rationalize the Christian duty to care for the less fortunate (and it's one of the clearest commandments Jesus made: care for the poor) and the "screw the poor" attitude of today's Republican Party: "oh, there aren't really that many poor people!"

Ken's leaving for "2-3 years"[edit]

Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 15:06, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

He didn't. He did make another weird remark to support the laughably unlikely possibility that he's doing anything but sitting on his swampy obese ass in a filthy apartment without air conditioning obsessively refreshing recent changes with absolutely nothing better to do than lie about all his unspecified off-wiki obligations, which at most consist of finally taking a shower and going shopping for more Cheetohs and hot dogs.

Doesn't look like he's leaving, I think it's just the usual "I'm going to be incredibly busy pulling shit out of my arse for the foreseeable future so I won't be able to answer any questions about my shit-pulling antics or have any input on how such shit-pulling might be subject to oversight" ONE / TALK 15:09, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Wait, wait, wait. Let's go back here for just a second: "I don't know if there is a "silent majority", but since I don't believe in mob rule it is a moot point anyways." (Unsuprisingly) I don't think Ken understands what the kind of "mob rule" we had here means (as our kind of mob rule is explicitly not working with people being silent about something) and if he wasn't going for our mob rule, as what should we understand "mob" then? I would guess the majority, the normal people. Equally unsurprisingly Ken has admitted himself to be a fascist or authoriatarian at least, although looking at how he debates "totalitarian" may be the word to go. On another note which will cost you another second: Just because Ken doesn't believe in "mob rule" (a.k.a. democracy) doesn't make any point moot... --ʤɱ digital native 16:53, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Is Rob parodying Conservative?[edit]

Rob's spelling flame, while written in Conservative's style, was pretty embarrassing. The proper phrase, as I understand it, is "without any further ado", just as Conservative wrote it.

Oh no, nintendo has had its worst sales in 27 years![edit]

Nintendo having worst sales in 27 years = abandoning of Video Games!img nevermind that this was an inevitability given how everybody owns a Wii and the handheld market is already oversaturated, that theres a recession going on, and totally ignoring that Historically Nintendo has been the most Family-Friendly of the consoles--Mikalos209 (talk) 22:34, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Never mind that Nintendo's consoles tended to have the more family-friendly games on average than Sony and MS. Also never mind that the sales drop is (likely) also because of the sub-par 3DS launch (WHERE THE FRIG ARE MY MUST-HAVE GAMES, NINTENDO?). --Sid (talk) 22:51, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
On the bright side, Nintendo is giving away 10 free GBA games and 10 NES games for anyone who bought the 3DS before the upcoming price drop, so now we'll actually have games to play on the 3DS...10 and 20 year old games, but games nonetheless... ~SuperHamster Talk 22:55, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Implying something is wrong with old games? The first decade after the crash gave us the best games ever.--Mikalos209 (talk) 22:58, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh, no, I'm real excited for it. It made my day when I heard about it. New games (when I say games, I mean Nintendo's big ones like Mario and Zelda, because I'm a nerd like that) would be nice too, though...waiting for the holiday season takes too long. ~SuperHamster Talk 23:04, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, the giveaway is a nice nod at early adopters (assuming that Nintendo manages to pull it off properly - so far, I've been less than impressed by their Online Strategy track record...), and I'd love to play Metroid Fusion and oldschool SMB again. If they throw in a NES-era Mega Man, I'd be practically ecstatic. --Sid (talk) 23:23, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

This is the sort of stuff that keeps them in the conservative backwater. First, lots of conservative people like video games; Second, there is probably not one person who isn't buying games right now who has "walked away" from playing/buying because of the senseless violence. MPR items like this are what tell people the site is a loony bin. Andy dreams up a reason, no matter how silly it sounds to everyone else, and then reports it on CP as fact. His own source says it's because of crappy games, not a shift in consumer preference away from games. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 14:22, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

On another note, Nintendo's president just cut his salary in half due to the losses that Nintendo has gone though. If only American banks and corporations could follow suit. ~SuperHamster Talk 22:43, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

I never expected to hear a discussion about the 3DS on Rationalwiki. I agree hearing about the 20 game givaway made me glad to be a first adopter, some of the games their giving away look really cool. If only America's CEOs could follow Nintendo's lead and cut their pay when things go tits up. Protoman (talk) 17:49, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
The true reason for falling handheld console sales is because there is another manufacturer of handheld consoles that also take pictures, go on the internet and take calls. It is called Apple. And last time I checked they have more money than Andy's nation. Sen (talk) 16:22, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Kendoll's pathetic sockpuppeteering[edit]

Does Kendoll really think nobody knows that his socks are really him? Gosh, why would I create an android app if I were a sock?

Here's two leaks: (1) I lost checkuser after I told Andy I had trouble accessing the site in the afternoons and was using a proxy; (2) in private confidential phone conversations with User:Conservative I explained in great detail what a wp:Strawman sockpuppet was; subject showed extreme interest in the phenomena and apparently never heard of it. Also, please note CP now allows functionaries to use sockpuppets and single purpose accounts [1] which brings it more inline with Wikipedia policy. And a note to Karajou, I am leaking only that portion of a discussion I told someone else, which in no way can be considered an ethical lapse. I am not discussing anything a second party told me in confidence. Do you see the difference? Oh, I see you just blocked me. I'm sorry, I repent, I'll never do it a again, whatever it was.

And what a month it was![edit]

monthly edits at CZ
Alas, not for Citizendium where the number of edits dropped for nine months in a row to a new low
monthly editors at CZ
though the number of editors was only the third worst in CZ whole history (Oct 2006 and last month saw less editors)
monthly edits at CP
No, Conservapedia is nearing the mark of 10,000 edits per month
monthly edits at RW
(a mark which RationalWiki missed only three times BTW)
monthly editors at CP
The reason for this: the number of contributors per months is increasing since TK's politic of repelling any newbie died with him...
IP blocks at CP over time
... and Rob opened the gates to former forbidden parts of the Internet. The problem: many parts of the world are still 403ed - for instance, I can't reach CP using my ISP.
I'm nearly willing to believe that the number of unique visitors at Conservapedia in July 2011 was greater than in July 2009 and July 2010, and perhaps even July 2008 - but I'm really surprised that it should beat July 2007.
editors at CP last month
Less than 60% of all edits (still in the database) were made by the top 10 editors, Rob has a strong second place - no surprise here.
editors at CP last month
The influx of new editors is showing. And some familiar names make a - more or less welcomed - comeback.

But August 2011 will be quite different: Most of the actions is due to Andy's abysmal lack of leadership. He lets his palace guards fight without even interfering when those are soiling his little castle. No doubt he'll crown the victor - and punish the defeated party - when the outcome gets clear. I tried to infuse some spine into himimg, but without any luck, I'm afraid. Without a competent deputy, Andy is certainly lost. And TK has shown that Andy is even in need of a deceptive incompetent second-in-command.

Thanks for all your number-crunching! Is it possible to see a breakdown of Talk versus mainspace edits on CP in the last few months? I'm curious how much the recent sysop battles have contributed to the increase in edits. (ʞlɐʇ) ɹǝɯɯɐHʍoƆ 19:12, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

As CP approaches completion & perfection, it is only natural that the number of edits will go down. Essentially, nearly all possible entries have been made.

Liberal translation: "Porn is a $6 billion dollar market despite one liberal millionaire CEO scratching his cranium." (talk)

Everything that does anything that might be perceived as bad is liberal, but furthermore didn't you know that conservatives have always been against oppression? That's even where the word comes from: conservare from good ol' Christian Latin meaning "to preserve [those that are oppressed]" in fact there is an ongoing fight of the majority of Conservatives against the liberal leading elite that only wants to progress their power! But one day, a glorious day will come when the conservative masses take over society and ... and ... um… change absolutely nothing at all. --ʤɱ socialist 18:42, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, I have always felt that treating women as chattal & forcing them to have 14 kids, is far superior to them being seen in the nude. It's the natural order. They prefer it that way. I think the blacks liked their servitude too, they made up all kinds of fun harvesting songs. Yes, I am being sarcastic. Jimaginator (talk) 20:08, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

The fact is that today's porn is generally not "exploitative of women" (which is a misogynistic concept anyway). Porn has gone mainstream, and you can see 10s of 1000s of free amateur videos made by couples trying to liven up their sex lives. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 20:37, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

How does that work exactly? --Mikalos209 (talk) 01:39, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
There was a schism inside feminism between AP (anti-pornography) feminists and SP (sex-positive) feminists. I sympathise with the SP feminists personally but no doubt an AP feminist would say that's just because I am corrupted by pornography. Anyway, for an SP feminist making pornography - perhaps as an actor but more likely as a writer or director - is a perfectly acceptable career in which they can help construct more healthy fantasies for other people. SP feminists also tend to be behind things like blogs which review (women's) sex toys. (talk) 07:49, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Back then, Andy had made up his mind anyway. He openly turned down or ignored Philip's advice (to align CP with AiG/etc. there and simply dismiss the results) right from the start, both in public and in the Conservaleaks. All the parodists (and that Holocaust denier) did was accelerating things. This is a pattern that can be found every now and then with Andy: He'll make a "suggestion" and ask for input, then he'll summarily ignore all input and go ahead with his initial plan. See for example the times when he asked the sysop mailing list about letting TK back or about giving Bugler sysop rights. --Sid (talk) 17:25, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Pathetic? A Lenski letter XI would've had a pretty decent midfield. I'd've been worried about the lack of a top class striker, but none of them seemed interested in exposing Lenski's deceitz. :( --Robledo (talk) 20:17, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Rob, my point about the footballers names was that Andy eagerly gobbled them all up as support for his call for the release of the Lenski data. I don't think any of them made any other edit but it showed how ideologically driven Schlafly is and those people were performing the role of the tailors in The Emperor's New Clothes. Far too many sysops are prepared to go along with the how wonderful is Mr Schlafly and are as guilty as any parodist in not challenging him. The ones who did call him out such as Philip, DanH, TimS are sadly nowhere to be seen any more. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 22:24, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Ken is going to go on the biggest flying kitting and fat atheists bender you've ever seen, oversight every single critical reference to his sharticles from the last 8 months. Karaturd's going to get some release from blocking all the "parodists" and "sockpuppets" (forgetting of course that millions of potential editors would have to use proxies, and hence share IPs, because Schlafly the dope 403'd the planet earlier this year).

Plus no one's going to take a website seriously which has headlines plastered all over the front page such as "Bruce Springsteen didn't sing "Born in the USA" at a concert because he secretly knows Obama is from Kenya!" or "Heathen Germany lost the World Cup to Christian Poland and Brazil because Germany doesn't allow religious homeschooling". Even if there was any good content on that site, it's wasted on them. You'd be better off just writing your own articles and starting a blog or something, because that site is too far gone.-- (talk) 18:04, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Marathi (मराठी Marāṭhī) is an Indo-Aryan language spoken by the Marathi people of western and central India. It is the official language of the state of Maharashtra. There are 90 million fluent speakers worldwide.[2] Marathi has the 4th largest number of native speakers in India[5] and is the 15th most spoken language in the world.[6] Marathi has the oldest of the regional literatures in Indo-Aryan languages, dating from about 1000 CE.[7] --Mikalos209 (talk) 05:33, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Not satisfied[edit]

I appreciate that pricks like Karajou might begin to grind one down and wear one out with their base stupidity and belligerence after a while. But for Rob to throw in the towel at this point seems a bit much. After garnering 24 nay votes on the "Should RobS be ceremonially disemboweled?" page he has effectively hung his supporters out to dry by conceding and buggering off to Amerowiki or wherever he said he was going. If one didn't know better one might almost suspect that this was a successful counter insurgency operation. I think that Rob is genuine so I do not suggest that seriously, but it may nonetheless have the same effect in the end. Get back in there Rob! --Horace (talk) 10:25, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

He told Karajou to fuck himself with a carrot stick. I think Rob is done. Senator Harrison (talk) 11:12, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Sadly Rob did not have the support of the one vote that really mattered, Herr Schlafly's. Frankly its his silence in all this that has interested me the most. It speaks volumes about the kind of shop he runs and people he gathers around him. Now that the sound and fury of so little significance is over I can only imagine him peaking his head timidly out from his pillow fortress with a softly whimpered "Haz da bad man gone nowz?" As for Rob, that he has finally wised up and moved on to greener pastures is encouraging. That he is heading over to yet another conservative POV wiki is...not. C'est la vive I suppose. You can lead the horse to water, etc, etc, etc.
What will really be interesting though is how things move from here. Kara and Ken have now slipped nicely into Co-Dragon positions, splitting the dearly departed TK's aggression and insanity between them. Any takers on how long it takes them to finish mopping up Rob's supporters before casting a squinting, suspicious eye at their remaining fellow sysops?

With all due respect to all involved, is there anyone here at all that believes that some unfortunate conservative in South Africa has lost a sincere opportunity to contribute to Conservapedia? Karajou's claims of sockpuppetry may be ill-founded, and it sure seems like the rules there are mere excuses for various sysop abuse, but to be honest, there aren't really all that many honest victims from the recent purge. Chances are pretty damned good that any contributors from Germany or South Africa don't really intend to benefit the "project" in the way intended.
I don't think I'm missing the point of the outcries entirely, but I sincerely don't think that there are many legitimate victims here in the past twenty-four hours. Rather, it's mostly a bunch of RW-inspired accounts being purged, unless I'm mistaken. (I get Rob's point as well — if they really do say the right thing, then who cares about their motive. But in determining victimhood status, motive counts.)
That's not to say that previous abuses didn't drive off legitimate contributors, nor that the current atmosphere won't do the same. I imagine there are a lot of sympathetic parties that get blocked for no good reason and that's a damned shame for CP. But Karajou's recent blocks? I can't get all that upset. Sorry. Phiwum (talk) 20:00, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
Using the same logic, you might as well ban all non-sysops and even some sysops. Or do you really think that people in the US think "Why certainly, flying kitties and the beauty of fall leaves do disprove evolution, and I also had many doubts about General Relativity! Indeed, I believe that homeschooling is the answer because it teaches our children that boys won't ask girls out if the latter get better test results. Also, the Bible is filled with liberal bias, and atheists are fat!"? CP is so far gone that I honestly think that all current editors other than the Fab Five are at least reading RW. Every. Single. One.
Because nobody else out there will bother to contribute unless bribed with promises of immunity and of absolute editorial freedom to pimp their crap. And even then they will likely go "Uh, no." Even Ed noted in the Conservaleaks that CP fails to attract conservative authors and wondered why that was so. Liberals laugh and move on, conservatives distance themselves, so only we remain.
CP has become a giant stage where people can go to try random shit. Some choose to play honest blokes, some play assholes, some sit in the corner and quietly analyze, and the core sysops stand in the center without realizing that nothing they say actually matters.
Do the blocks matter? In the big picture, they don't. CP could block literally the entire planet, and only we would notice. But like I said, the sysops believe in their little fantasy world, and they believe that they do the correct and smart thing. So if you dive in and look at it inside the illusion, it matters. And most discussions on (T:)WIGO implicitly do just that. We pretend that CP is not just a lone stage in the middle of nowhere. We are a part of their illusionary world. We give these people meaning. --Sid (talk) 21:50, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

No, you idiot, there is no definite leader on the site, as if you needed any more evidence of that then this whole fiasco of Sysops run wild. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 18:33, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

The wise monkeys[edit]

So looking at the riot on Andy's talkpage and wondering how he sees no evil by completely ignoring it, I checked his edit history to find his last contribution was 26 July now over a week ago. But looking at the total history of his talk page I see his first edit was 23 January 2011, ah yes that was Ken deleted and recreated the page thereby wiping out the prior edit history. One day we will find that Ken has been the only editor on CP as the contributions of every other editor will have been memory holed just to save Ken's face concerning his own ineptitude.

After all, CP is his (helmet wearing, shot bus riding, window licking) baby and such a blowout could not truly be escaping his notice. Was he really ignoring the whole dustup and hoping it would just go away or has he legitimately had something else occupying his time? Then I did a quick trip back through the WIGOs and saw he personally removed Robs check user rights on 7/28. That bit alone was enough to convince me he's well aware of what's been transpiring, has given his quiet support to Team Kenajou and evidently had no problem tossing Rob to the wolves. --Tygrehart

"I think of my beautiful city in flames."[edit]

I think it's fitting that the Idiocy Singularity hits CP right as Rob is pretty much ready to move.

Penn Jillette looks at Conservapedia and Ken's "essays" and seriously concludes that it's a troll site. Ken's reaction is basically to jizz in his pants and to feel encouraged to create more "essays".

Seriously, this is brain damaged. There is missing the point, and then there is missing the PLANET the point is located on.

And Andy is sitting there in his little echo chamber, seriously believing that the opposition is either cowering in fear or being converted and that conservatives will rally behind his glorious insights. In the meantime, out in the real world, the opposition is actually unwilling to believe they're serious while conservatives try to put as much distance between themselves and CP as possible.

On a certain level, I care for CP. I've been watching the place for more than four years now. I guess I developed a certain nostalgic bond, yeah. And now I see... this. A blathering idiot either doesn't understand or doesn't understand that he is completely undermining the site's last shred of credibility, and Andy sides with him. *sigh* I think I may need a vacation before the week is over... --Sid (talk) 23:20, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

I think from the get-go Conservapedia was doomed because of Andy Schlafly. If you had a Rich Lowry, David Frum or even--blech--a Tucker Carlson the site would have been a robust place where various strains of conservative thought would be explained, as Rob proposed. The rot is at the top. What I don't understand is why any users on this board still have any nostalgic for what was always a mistaken notion about what CP would be. I also don't understand why people are so invested in something named Conservapedia being that compendium of conservative thought.

Hehe. From CP's own source: "Now, given the nationwide mourning that's gripped Norway after the killings, pulling certain games from store shelves isn't a big hardship. But it's exactly the kind of fumbly gesture that continues to make games (and other creative media) an easy scapegoat when something ugly happens in society. Stokke's remarks portray a bit of ambivalence, which is expected in the wake of an event like the Oslo/Utoya shootings. This token gesture demonstrates sympathy but arguably doesn't do much to prevent such a tragedy from happening again." And the link at the bottom of that article leads to 'Norway Attacks: Killers May Play Video Games, but Video Games Don't Make Killers'. So they couldn't even find a source that agrees with them about the alleged link between video games and violence to highlight some retailer deciding to pull some games off their shelves for a while. Oh, but, I forgot, that's due to reality the media having a liberal bias. (talk) 19:52, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Penn Jillette[edit]

Ugh. Ken keeps shitting all over Penn Jillette, i mean, could someone please tell me what this "Essayimg" is supposed to be about?

Honestly, I think Ken is going mad after his great victory. He seems to have made 5 (possibly more) "Essays" all saying the exact same thing about Penn. And of course Ken is referring to himself in third person, that's what psychopaths do. He's even referring to himself as he/she.

Just a thought. I know I do not post often, but I have monitored the idiotocracy of CP for sometime. Has it occurred to anyone that Conservative's "rise" may give us an opportunity? Look at some of the personalities over there. We may be able to turn them on each other.

You must be new. "We" don't expressly want to destroy Conservapedia, just point out when it's misleading or unscientific. Conservative is just acting how he always acts. And sysops have turned against each other before, but these days Andy never intervenes so the winner is whoever spends the most time editing and reverting (ie Conservative).--

I see Ken as a troll in the best sense of the word. There is genius in him... or he is mentally insane (the line between the two being quite blurry when it comes to art). I picture him as a disabled man, unable to leave his house, who found in Conservapedia (and A. Schlafly) a venue to express himself, see how much he can get away with, and make people laugh as they enjoy the crazy antics of his internet persona (and Schlafly's abnormal reactions to it all). I think that he's acting the whole time, performing for us. Enjoying himself as he mercilessly -and deliberatedly- twists and tortures logic, maturity, rationality, common sense and sane behaviour itself. I see him as a dedicated artist performing at the cheap global stage of this series of tubes, laughing at the world and allowing us to share in his enjoyment. A troll, in the best sense of the word... and probably a little insane. :-) God may have deprived him of mobility, but not of his hability to laugh at His creation.

Atheistic England is doomed! DOOMED I say![edit]

Many British kill harm themselves! Because they got atheism!img Because, you know, the United Kingdom is really the epicenter of European atheism. So stop bein' an atheeist now, 'cause, 'cause - I don' like it when you think different than me!

But here comes the icing on the cake:

The best available research indicates that in the United States up to 4% of adults self-harm with approximately 1% of the population engaging in chronic or severe self-harm.[70]

Now, the source Ken quotes says:

Self-harm statistics for the UK show one of the highest rates in Europe: 400 per 100,000 population

Now let's do some meth math kids: 400 in 100,000 is what persentage? Let's do it very easy and just adjust the position of the decimal point so that it's a percentage: ahh... wait… just a sec... - a there you go: 0.4 out of 100, which is 0.4%! But wait a minute! In the US 4%, in the UK it's 0.4%. Now well, the US is only for the adults, but as mostly teens engage in self-harm, this percentage would even have to be adjusted upwards if we were to seriously compare the two on a nationwide scope. So, the US is more religious than the UK... and especially more Christian than the UK.. wait, let me get the "Ken DeMyer-logic simulator" up and running (I mean it often fucks up, needs several times to do something and sometimes I can't turn it off, but I think that's how it ought to be...) - Ah! There we go: CHRISTIANITY MAKES PEOPLE HARM THEMSELVES! --ʤɱ federalist 22:53, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

You know I have usually associated self-harm with those of a religious disposition, all that self-flagellation because you are told that you are not worthy of your maker. And if you start going through the book of saints you will find all sorts of daft things people do to themselves for their love of Jesus.

The teacher who wanted to pray, should have a right to pray. but what about muslims, is that true for them? Of course not, schools have a right to make teaches say what they want them to say.

{ec}Nah. The difference is public/private employment--User:Brxbrx/sig 02:11, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Andy is a little more consistent than we give him credit for. He's not saying the (Christian) teacher should have a right to pray, he's saying the parents should have the right to have the teacher pray. Thus he'd technically have to agree that a Muslim-majority school district should be able to institute school prayer to Allah. If I weren't blocked over there, I'd be tempted to ask about specifically Mormon prayers - I'm pretty sure there are Mormon-majority districts in Utah, while Muslim-majority districts are probably much more rare. Yoritomo (talk) 14:12, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
I hope you're right regarding Andy's consistency, but I doubt it. I suspect that, if there happened to be a Muslim-majority area, Andy would revert to the Christian nation myth. It's a shame that we don't have an actual Muslim-majority area at hand, but at least one could ask him to explicitly state whether or not he agrees that in such a school district (or, better, in the area belonging to one particular elementary school), he would advocate Islamic prayers in the classroom and if not, why not? Pin him down as clearly as possible: which group matters most? The locals attending the school? The area funding the school? The nation? The nation's alleged history as founded by Christians? Phiwum (talk) 15:02, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
IIRC somebody did bring up a question about what if Jewish or other children in the class wanted to pray in their religion, rather than Andy's "teacher-led prayer" I think his response basically came down to "No, it will be Christian prayer in my schools, if they want to pray otherwise, they can either do it quietly, or attend their own classes." PsyGremlinSnakk! 15:19, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

My wife taught at a charter school for Somali immigrants (we're in Minneapolis, which has a surprising high Muslim population, particularly East Africans), and there was a shit-storm because the school had some religious-themed activities (prayer sessions on Fridays were the big thing) Now, I think the school was in the wrong; but if this had been a Christian prayer session at a Christian-majority school, Andy would have been stumbling over himself to praise it. But I'm sure a Muslim prayer session at a Muslim-majority school would send him into a frenzied, hypocritical rage. Carlaugust (talk) 16:58, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

I think Andy is naturally submissive - wouldn't you be, growing up under Big Phyl's claws? Thus he instinctively defers to the alpha male on CP - despite his token presence as Brother Leader - hence his rolling over on TK and now Ken. That probably also explains a lot of Andy's projection.

Well, don't forget that Andy sometimes "trims" Ken's more embarrassing items and that Ken went crying to Andy during his squabble with Rob. Ken is more like Andy's neglected child who effectively controls the house and can get away with nearly anything.
The fact that CP is Ken's Blog in all-but-name is due to three factors: the reluctance of those at CP to criticize one on their side, the laziness/disinterest of nearly every other sysop and the clinical obsessiveness of Ken.

Moon over My Hammy[edit]

This MPR itemimg is hysterical for its irony:

  • "Here's the latest "scientific" theory to explain it: there was somehow a second moon that collided with the real Moon precisely to make one side smooth and other jagged. Even Time observes, "A new theory in science isn't worth much, however, unless you can test it somehow." [10] No kidding."

No kidding, Creationists. --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 15:18, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Dear f'in goat. "like what an artist would paint; but the opposite side is jagged, like what an astronomer would expect." Did this moron SERIOUSLY graduate from Harvard or did he just bribe the lecturers so he could lie about it? If I had written anything like when I was at university the lecturers would have thrown it back unmarked. Oldusgitus (talk) sometime, 4 August 2011 (UTC) My keyboard is playing up........

It's pretty simple. One side is smooth because God made it that way. The other side is jagged because God made it that way. Scientists don't realize the truth because God made them that...oh, rats...Jimaginator (talk) 17:09, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

The near side of the Moon is smooth like sandpaper is smooth. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:39, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
You don't know with certainty why one side is smoother than the other, therefore god. Checkmate, atheists. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:52, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
My best guess would be that the near side is smoother because since it's the side always facing the Earth, it's less likely to be hit by meteors. --Roofus (talk) 17:57, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't think the moon is stationary - it actually spins on an axis, so that idea wouldn't hold up? --Phil Leotardo da Vinci (talk) 18:04, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
The moon rotates on an axis. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:07, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
It rotates, but it orbits the Earth at the same speed it rotates. The result is the same side facing us all the time. The smooth, God-painted side. In His great wisdom He made sure the smooth side was always facing us so we could appreciate its beauty. Rather than, say, making the entire thing smooth. Because that would have been silly. «-Bfa-» 18:13, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
  • Because of tidal effects celestial bodies which are circling around each other will become locked. The Earth's rotation is slowing down and sometimes in the future, the Earth will show the Moon always the same side (well, it will be wobbling a bit because of the Sun..)
  • a question for our astronomers: wouldn't one expect the side of the Moon which is facing us to be somehow shielded against impacts by the Earth?

larronsicut fur in nocte 18:43, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Not an astronomer, but: It doesn't seem to be very interesting which side of the moon faces outward. It seems to be more interesting which side of the moon faces forward, ie. in the direction the system travels around the sun. Every side of the moon will do that at some point, obviously. Another thing is that impactors hitting on the near side will tend to be faster than impactors on the far side due to the gravity assist from the planet they will typically have received. Mountain Blue (talk) 19:09, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
No, blue, due to the tidal locking, the same side of the Moon is always "the lead side". That astronomy guy has a point, the side facing the Earth is more protected from impacts than the other side. And of course Andy is as usual a moron in general. ħumanUser talk:Human 06:50, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Uh, no. At first quarter moon, the near side points in the direction the Earth travels. At third quarter moon, it's the far side. Just look at this diagram. Mountain Blue (talk) 12:57, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
I would suspect a little, but not by much given the still large distance between the two worlds, relatively speaking. Earth's gravity does influence NEOs significantly though, so it is possible. The near side of the Moon is also likely smoother because it suffered one or more major impacts in the deep past that cause lava to flow to the surface creating the lava filled basins called maria ("seas") that we see today. We do know that the crust on the near side of the Moon is thinner than the crust on the far side of the Moon, which may have made it easier for lava to flow to the surface from such huge impacts in the deep past. These days the Moon's interior is no longer active, having long since cooled off. Curiously, the Moon's center of mass is actually slightly offset towards the near side from its geographical center, so in addition to a thinner crust, the near side has slightly more mass.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:35, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

While you all were discussing "science", you were not praising Him. The moon is the way God wanted it to be. Stop trying to figure things out. Where will it lead? Inventions? Knowledge? Worldwide communication? Praise Him, and stop wasting time. Jimaginator (talk) 19:56, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

"The side of the Moon that faces us is smooth, as an artist would paint; but the opposite side is jagged, as an astronomer would expect". Yeah, painters can't stand painting jagged stuff. They like smooth stuff. That is why they have always painted the side of the moon facing the Earth and why you will see very few landscapes showing the far side of the moon. --Horace (talk) 03:01, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
What is annoying about that is that it isn't smooth by any stretch of the imagination. Look how ridiculously cratered the near side is[4], especially in contrast to our own world, but no one is on the Moon admiring the artistic beauty of Earth. If we humans see the near side of the Moon as artistic it because it is utterly ingrained into our collective historical and cultural psyche. After all up until a half century or so ago, it was the only side of the Moon anyone has ever seen, and about every human has seen it, making the near side for all intended historical, cultural purposes, the "entirety" of the Moon. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 07:51, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
This. Also wanted to add in a comment about 'the same side always faces the Earth'. That's broadly true, but can be a little misleading, as it implies that the bit facing the Earth is static (relative to the Earth). That's not quite accurate, as due to libration something like 59% of the moon's surface is visible from the Earth at some point. There's quite a good graphic on the Wikipedia page for libration to demonstrate this. Worm (talk) 09:12, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

What the hell is Rob on about?[edit]

For some truly incomprehensible advice, see Rob's recent conversationimg.

What's the problem? --Roofus (talk) 02:59, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
It appears that he's trying to steer a conversation and point the bannables into the direction of the data he wants them to present without violation the terms of... lets say his 'probation'. Rob, if you are indeed trying to do that, you might want to go with [5] and then assume that obesity is evenly spread between all political backgrounds for that given state. You can find a partisan voting index at [6] . For example, Alabama (a nice first in the list) has 32.2% obesity and 39.1% democratic vote. On the other hand, you have something like Vermont which has a obesity rate of 23.2% and voted democratic 68.9% in '08. So maybe you've got some data to work from there. Or maybe someone will try to twist it around to suggest that every republican voter in vermont is thin. If this isn't enough data, you could go by county [7] and [8] though I'll admit you'd have to do a bit of work to map the congressional district back to counties. Still, you'll have those wonderful blips like Dane County, Wisconsin that has a 25% obesity rate (lowest in the state) and elects Tammy Baldwin (a lesbian!) in a district with a D+15 index. Whatever case, the data is all there for you to pass along to have people try to figure out what percentage of the population are overweight republicans. Just make sure you stay far, far away from any actual studies [9] [10] and news articles [11], they're either by liberal schools of higher learning or publicized by the mainstream media. --Shagie (talk) 03:29, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
What's the problem? Well, all of his advice just seems to miss the point. The claim is that atheism is correlated with obesity. The fact that there are more obese persons than atheists would not refute the claim at all. And adding political affiliation just makes things that much more complicated and confusing. What one wants is clear evidence that there is no such correlation. Now, there probably is no such evidence, so what one needs to do is the next best thing: simply point out that there is no study that supports Ken's claim. There is no evidence of the correlation Ken wants. (Of course, Ken doesn't really care, so this argument will have no practical consequence.) Phiwum (talk) 11:01, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

To be fair, a bunch of those are to American History homework pages, which should not have mainspace links to them.

I really don't know why he's adverse to other namespaces so much of the time (except for things like those contests - man do I miss those). I guess a separate namespace sounds like the sort of thing Wikipedia would do, therefore it is bad. I believe he has similar feelings for disambiguation pages.
