Worth Editing?[edit]

I know recently, thanks to Rob's efforts, some of us here had their accounts reopened as part of his reform efforts (mind was after it was pointed out my banning was by a known parodist). However since it would appear that his attempts at Glasnost in the authoritarian oligarchy of Conservapedia seemed to have failed against the hard-liners; I am wondering, is it worthwhile for any of us to post new or improve articles there, or is it just an enormous waste of time to inject a little bit of rationalism and fact there? What say you? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 07:39, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

What can I say? cp:User:RonLar is over there - but his edits aren't as elaborate as yours were, I'm just testing the water... At the moment, I wouldn't put too much effort in the edits, as the mood can swing very quickly over there. larronsicut fur in nocte 08:20, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Agree. All that's there is Andy's ignorance and a bunch of parodists waiting to jump on you, so they can get into Andy's good books. The most you could hope for is to get into an argument about why the universe isn't 12,000LY across, before Angry Bear comes and stomps on your head, spouting something like "You can believe that atheist billions and billions stuff if you like, but don't try and force it on us right thinkin' folk here!" PsyGremlinParlez! 13:55, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
That is what makes me the most hesitant. I'd do nothing but science (specifically astrophysics) stuff and as soon as some statement is placed in that doesn't conform to the YEC worldview, it could become a real headache with no reason given other than it isn't YEC approved. Worse, as oyu point out, all opposition could just be parodists. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:35, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

There was a time when I was a heavy CP editor, doing a lot of good faith edits. I was abrasive, forthright, and got into the fray whenever possible. I improved a lot of articles, even though some significant fraction of my edits would just be mass-reverted. When a lazy sysop happened by and didn't like one of them. Eventually I was banned.
But since that time, I've been wondering about the wisdom of editing at CP. Is it better to parody and push them further into extremism, isolating them from the serious conversations (a la Bugler) or is it better to try to push reasonable objections whenever possible, like I did?
Kurt Vonnegut wrote a book called Mother Night that was all about a chief Nazi propagandist who was secretly a spy for the Allies. Among his nightly spiels about how the vicious Jews controlled the world and Hitler was going to free all true Aryans, he would encode valuable tactical messages to the American spy agencies. But at the end of the world, even the other spies hated him. And it was all summed up in the words of another Nazi, who told the propagandist that he'd been suspected of being a spy for years, but eventually they decided that it didn't matter if he was. Because even if he'd been a spy, his disguise was so good that it would have been worth it.
So now I think maybe it's not healthy or good to poison any discussions. We need as many people to be as reasonable as possible.
I guess what I'm saying is that yes, you should edit there. Try to be calm and intelligent. It's better to light a candle rather than curse their darkness. It won't be a waste of your time.--ADtalkModerator 16:58, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

That is true, although I do not hide who I am there and they should be well aware of what my views are and that I am active here (as they read this talk page daily). The question than is, even as a good faith editor, can they handle those facts about me as an editor? --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:35, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Just one quick question concerning Ken...[edit] concerning the new with regards to? larronsicut fur in nocte 07:57, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

*concern*, *regard* and somewhat more

Quidquid vis fieri, fac, facienda faciet nullus pro te - though it is very doubtful that such a diagram has to be drawn. But it is silly, hilarious and crazy, look for yourself: I looked up the revisions of the article cp:Atheism - the article never was deleted, so its history is intact (other than with cp:Evolution).

  • dark blue: all edits to this article per day. In the beginning, there were actually contributions by non-Kens, but over the last years, you will find only the odd interjection by Ed Poor, or so
  • light blue: Ken's edits - since Aug 2007, he is virtually the only contributor to this article
  • green line: size of the article in KBytes. - Ken has inflated the article up to 220 KBytes before he started to give subsections articles on their own.

And now for the essential lines :-)

  • red line: number of words containing "regard" - as regarding, with regards to, etc. In Jul 2008, Ken became somehow conscious of his abuse of these phrases and he tried keep the number down. So, this phrase is nowadays an indicator for parts which were composed before mid-2008
  • orange line: number of words containing "concern" - as concerning, deep concern, etc. this became Ken's catch-phrase in Apr 2009, overtaking *regard* in Feb 2011.

I can't believe that I've prepared a quantitative Stilkritik, but I stayed at home with a stomach upset...

TerryH + Lenin quote = FAIL[edit]

TerryH linkspams MPR once again, but this time he quotes Leninimg. "[T]he capitalists will sell the communists the rope." shall be the conservative quote of the day. But what the fuck is he trying to say here? That the capitalists should either not be making business with anybody that might destroy them (which is not true) or that the capitalists should not be allowed to promote a theory that goes against the majorities beliefs (I might be wrong here) or that the capitalists got to greedy? Let's step back a second here, if the capitalists would not make business with anybody they might think could destroy them, this goes against the credo that those who pay the most get the attention and therefor it wouldn't be true capitalism. If they were not allowed, that would be an infringement on the market and therfor socialism - so does TerryH promote socialism now? Let's go with the next idea and say they are too greedy - wait, wasn't greed the exact thing that should make capitalism the superior system? Which is exactly what the Lenin quote is ought to be saying: capitalists are too greedy. So Terry agrees with Lenin (communist/atheist/dictator) and with CP logic working, he should now be called a liberal troll and vandal and be banned from the site...

I saw that headline and thought similarly. The simple point is that he quotes Lenin approvingly because he thinks it suits his purpose on this occasion. Don't be surprised if, in the near future, he criticises someone for quoting Lenin approvingly. These people have no idea of what a consistent world view is. It is all about the point that they want to make at that moment. Screw logic. Screw consistency. God is on my side so I am right! --Horace (talk) 22:59, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
I think the point is the government outsourcing the contract to a private firm to produce commie agitprop; but the question remains, is it a bourgeois government buying from a commie front firm, or a commie dominated government buying from private sector, pro-free market marketing operation. Either way, it is ambiguous, because the government appears to be the buyer here, and the private firm the seller of commie agitprop, although the government is also selling cash, and the private company is buying dollars with its labor. Which only proves the point, Lenin had his head up his ass and didn't understand a fucking thing about how human beings interact with each other, or how people feed themselves and survive. What a putz. nobsput down the toilet seat 00:23, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
I don't even know what point you are trying to make, so keep it, it wasn't mine. Let me show you mine: Lenin: Capitalists are so greedy they will even sell the things to us with which we will kill them. TerryH: Lenin is right. Conservapedia: Commies are evil! Capitalism is superior because people have to work for themselves, if they wouldn't they wouldn't earn money and everybody wants to earn money! (←greed). Me: What now? Good or bad? And if you don't agree with the party line, don post it on Main Propaganda Page Right! --ʤɱ soviet 01:05, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
That's just a vulgar Marxist stereotype of capitalism, that people are motivated by money. Of course in a godless society ruled by athesits that may true. However, in a true spirit of capitalism, people may simply be motivated by the need to be independent, serve others & be justly rewarded for it. Your notion smacks ofcp:Liberal censorship of conservative truths, as Andy would put it. nobsput down the toilet seat 22:05, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Oh Rob, oh Rob, oh Rob. Let's have an economy lesson than, shall we?
So we have a market system, everybody owns somethings and everybody only own certain things. For example a farmer only owns land and his crops, a miner only owns the metal and so on. But there are also people that only own there own work power. But all of this people need at least two things: food, to keep themselfes alive on a basic level, and power over other people, to protect themselves. Now if we would simply give it to each other the whole system would only rely on trust. Now, and this is because we need some instant compensation for the things we give away and also because people need something that doesn't rot if we transport it over long distances, we invent money and give it a common worth against which we can meassuere everything else. People now earn money and have it ready to spent it almost instantly. The will for survival motivates basic money, for which we can buy food, a home a.s.o., but greed comes form something different, from the realization that money also is power. Greed wants more than just survival, it wants power through money.
In economic and generally educated circles we call a human that thinks rationally about his moves in the economy (="wants the most benefits out of them") "homo economicus" (The awefully liberally biased Wikipedia has an article on it, btw CP doesn't). This type of individual, and most of us are this type, wants to maximize the profit of his every move, so that he or she has an advantage over other people, which leads him or she to a more secure life. You are right when you say people want to be independent of others, but they don't want this simply because, but because dependency means insecurity - except when everybody else is also dependent. They only will serve others if such a system is beneficial to themselves, that means they gain money or something else. Why do people want to be "justly rewarded"? Because if they weren't they wouldn't make profit but a loss, that wouldn't be beneficial.
And this is important now, I am not a communist, but the observations communists made in the 19. century are mostly correct - for the 19. century… For example classes (as described in communist works) in that time pretty much existed, today they don't. In Europe "the rich guys" (for lack of a better term) have found that, if one gives workers some security instead of killing those who don't like what one does, they actually will stop revolting. In the US one made it so that everything describing anything left of conservatism is a smear word. The greed talked about, is an essential part of the capitalist system, it is what motivates everything more than only earning "enough". And you know what? There is no shame in it. Egotism is how capitalism works, and until know it is the most effecient economical sytem, but it isn't perfect. Of course Christianity says that greed isn't a good thing, which, together with charity, is only another way of keeping those who get bend over and fucked silent.
Finally, when I note what Lenin says, I note what Lenin says not what I think. And when I note that your propaganda should be at least be logically consistent and not written without using any part of brain (which I know is hard work for you people), so that quotes backfire, I express an opinion. If you would open up MPR for the actual non-opinionated (so that little Andy can stick it to Barack) news, we wouldn't even have this argument.
Sorry btw for going so long, it's just not easy to do without asking to much of your intelligence. --ʤɱ soviet 16:16, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Very very good; I agree with about 99% of what you said, and how you stated it. It's the greed stuff where we differ. Because in many if not most societies, wp:prodigality is rampant, i.e. the workers consume 100% of their productive powers on themselves, that leaves nothing behind to (a) feed a growing population; (b) create jobs for a growing population. If it weren't for the parsimony of the few, to make up for the prodigality of the many, the conduct of every prodigal beggars himself and diminishes the whole country (the wealth of the whole being the sum total of its inhabitants), which is a paraphase of sevral important pasages of Adam Smith. "The parsimony of the few" being "the rich" in modern parlance. However, it is the prodigal who is greedy, because the prodigal consumes 100% of his resources, whereas "the rich" confine their expense within their revenue, produce savings, which then (a) sets the whole economic proces in motion for the next twelve months, (b) finances the government borrowing and deficts, (c) is concerned about others, and that is how their capital is employed. The Congressional Research Service supports this argument:

Even before the increase in the deficit, national saving was insufficient to finance domestic investment spending, and the United States was borrowing from abroad at unprecedented rates, peaking at about 6% of GDP. (Borrowing from abroad has since fallen by half, but remains relatively high.) To sustain large deficits, the economy will require some combination of higher private saving, lower investment, and higher borrowing from abroad.

Here's how I paraphrased it: national savings rate was insufficient to finance job creation (or "domestic private investment").[8] To sustain large deficits, the economy would require a combination of more private saving (less consumption), lower investment (less job creation), and higher borrowing from abroad. The arguemnt that greed is somebody having more than somebosdy else, is naive. It's how their resources are employed, i.e. 100% spent on themself, which is true greed, or a billionaire who makes it posible for 10,000 people to be employed, pays taxes, and finances the goverment deficit. The fact the rich have a mansion, limo, big screen & jaccuzi is just old fashioned commie agitprop & hate speech. nobsput down the toilet seat 17:01, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Disney Feminism?[edit]


Part of feminism is that men are inherently bad, or dumb, or incompetent, while women are inherently good, or smart, or competent. Disney has been recasting many classics with a feminist spin. Recasting the seven dwarfs as evil little men is one of many distortions by Disney in the past 20 years.

WTF? Andy is making parody obsolete. --Night Jaguar (talk) 05:35, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm confused, was there a remake of snow white that I was unaware of or is he talking about Shrek...? Ateafish (talk) 07:20, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
They're planning to make a gritty, live-action reboot (at least according to Andy's link). --Night Jaguar (talk) 07:27, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
The really amusing part is the only version of Snow white, or any other fairy story, andy knows is the Disney sanitised version in the first place. I doubt very much he has even heard of the the Borthers Grimm let alone read any of their rather dark and quite unsettling old folk tales. He probably thinks Disney studios wrote Snow White.

The phrase "Disney Feminism" alone made me laugh. Though I guess Mulan might count. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 08:27, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Can you imagine his horror should, in the remake, Disney show the queen eating the liver and heart returned by the huntsman thinking it to be Snow Whites? I can see it now 'Nasty liberals rewrite good whilesome story of snow white to include cannibalism. Is nothing safe from liberal distortion?' Oldusgitus (talk) 08:36, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Neb, having taken my share of feminist courses as an undergraduate, i have to agree with you. we did quite a bit on disney and it's endless line of pathetic "rescue me", whiny leading ladies. only one any of us liked was Mulan. she fell in love, but never lost her girly balls!Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 17:02, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Comet Elenin[edit]

So, an article on a news site, filed under the category 'tripe & what-not', reports on some claims about Comet Elenin, amongst other things, hiding and/or being controlled by a fleet of hostile alien spaceships, explicitly makes the point that these claims are utter nonsense, and disregarded by all save a few complete loony-tune conspiracy theorists, fails to mention evolution or evolutionary theory at all, and this article is evidence of 'flaky evolutionists pushing alarmist bunk on Comet Elenin'. You know, if it was anyone else at all who added that news item, I would say that was a parodist who'd just blown his cover by being too extreme. (talk) 19:39, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Well other than the fact it has nothing to do with evolution, virtually all Elenin conspiracy theories have come from either religious woo or New Age woo. While it is good that some Creationist sites are joining the same side as the mainstream secular scientific community, and rationalist groups, in saying the comet is just a comet and nothing is going to happen; CP never loses an opportunity to politicize everything and to make slights against enemies, real or imagined, even if it makes no sense whatsoever.

It's not only that, it's probably also a big part of the GOP blackmailing the government to get what they want or government shutdown.

Every country that may default get's downgraded, because if a country defaults it really can't pay back, can it? So yes, this whole deal is pretty much the fault of Tea Baggers and the like.

I never understand why people like him try to link the issue of homosexuality to HIV. Although gay men are at higher risk for HIV than the heterosexual population, lesbians are at a lower risk. If HIV is an argument against homosexuality at all, it can only be one against male homosexuality, not female homosexuality, yet they often talk as if it was a risk of homosexuality in general. And, if the risk of HIV is an argument against male homosexuality, then it is an argument against heterosexuality as well, and the logical conclusion is that everyone should be a lesbian. Actually, if one thinks about it, the risk of HIV from a sexual act is correlated with the number of male participants, so the end conclusion is that men cause AIDS, and the best way of preventing HIV would be eliminating men completely.

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────Ok, let's add some Sauff Effricen perspective to this.
It would appear as if the prof in question is possibly one Dr Brandon van der Ventel at Stellenbosch University. Now SU (or Maties) was one of the Big 5 traditional Nationalist/Afrikaner bastions of learning (along with Rand Afrikaans Uni, Potchefstroom Uni for Christian Higher Education, Pretoria Uni and Uni of the Orange Free State - names have since changed.) It probably remains the most conservative campus in the country (UOFS being the most right-wing, however) - and Prof vd Ventel is most likely white, Afrikaans and a devout member of the Dutch Reformed Church. It's not really surprising that he would possibly do this - much like "everything is political" for Andy, "religion can be squeezed into everything" for most Afrikaners. Trust me - I went to the PU for CHE - there was a compulsory subject called Wetenskapsleer (lit. "the science of learning" - sort of like philosophy) which was all about how the good Christian applies his faith to his field of study. --PsyGremlin話しなさい 13:46, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

When you refer to the Dutch Reformed Church... is that like a "mainstream Protestant" church in the States, which would have no problem with a belief in evolution? Or is it more like the Southern Baptists or evangelicals, where it contradicts their theology? MDB (talk) 13:49, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
They're not evangelical per se, but very much hard-core old-school Calvinists. So evolution would easily be a no-no for them. It's a very potted history, but you have to remember that these are people who dedicated their lives to God after winning the Battle of Blood River, (apparently with His help) and thus based their "right" to rule SA on the fact that God had given the land to the whites. It's a pretty messed-up philosophy, but it certainly wouldn't be odd to find them harbouring Creationist tendencies. --PsyGremlin講話 14:11, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
The only time in my life I have nearly walked out of a church service was my mothers funeral service at her church near Cresta in Johannesburg. It is the only funeral I have EVER been to where the minister actually started evangelising during the service. If my father hadn't been there I would have walked out. Many Seth Effricans are second only to the US in the wingnutty attitude toweards religion, imo of course. And psy, was SU the one where the africaners played that lovely joke on their (black) cleaner by making her drink their piss? I really don't like most hairy backs I have met you know. Oldusgitus (talk) 14:27, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Why are CP admins so dishonest?[edit]

This applies both to Ken and Rob, as well as others. Why deny what you have done as an admin if you're not ashamed of it? Be it RW posts in Rob's case or deleting edits in Ken's case, why deny it? It's not the political ideology of CP that bothers me; it's the overall shadiness of the people there. ConservapediaEditor (talk) 04:50, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Well that's the whole appeal of CP isn't it? If it was just a collection of dour, well adjusted, sober minded, rational individuals, it wouldn't be the #1 internet destination for trolls, parodists, and vandals. I am constantly amazed at how perfectly ill-suited CP admins are to the task they are trying to achieve. First you got Andy with zero leadership skills (natural or acquired), in charge. You got Ken, who can't write, can't read, can't handle criticism, and can't work with others... generating the bulk of the content.

The rest of the admin corps is well, crazy people who've accomplished nothing in real life. Rob can't spell worth his life, Ken is just batshit crazy, the late TK seemed in hindsight to be a lonely 60 year old man who was in poor health.

The Atheist Capital[edit]

Where is it? Not some godless communist country or socialist franceimg But LONDON! --Mikalos209 (talk) 15:24, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

I called it first! Seriously though - it's just another extension of Andy's weird "atheistic England" meme - and he only added it, after it was mentioned here, so maybe he is a parodist. Of course, good Xian US cities never have riots. --PsyGremlinTala! 15:34, 7 August 2011 (UTC)

I wonder how he'd report a riot in the Bronx or Queens; London's population is 7.7m; NYC is 8.1m. There were about 400 rioters, most of then from outside the area (Tottenham), which is one of the poorest parts of London. CS Miller (talk) 18:08, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
What Csmiller said. London (as in Greater London) is one of the biggest city's in the world, and Tottenham is one area of one of 32 boroughs of London. Talk about sensationalism. And no mention of a man being shot dead sparking the riot either, it's because it's the "atheist capital". What a prat. SJ Debaser 18:42, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
The police used PACE stop-and-search powers on a local man, Mark Duggan, who was suspected of carrying an illegal firearm. During the incident he was fatally shot. According to local reports there have been tensions between the police and the local community over the way the police have being conducting stop-and-searches.

There is demographic data, if we were talking about an otherwise reasonable, smart theist who was making this claim I'd imagine they'd at least glanced at the census data and that London came out at or near the top on some combination of criteria like "European capital" + "Highest proportion of non-believers". But this is the guy who can't do arithmetic and then bans people who point it out, I'm sure to him any country he doesn't like has an "Atheist capital" unless he's currently claiming everyone there is Muslim.

Politicians and their careers before holding office[edit]

This rapidly-evolving clusterfuckimg has so much "wrong" in it, it's hard to figure out where to start. Here's one place to start. Ron Paul is an influential politician. Barack Obama is not. BbMaj7 On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog. 01:54, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, Andy's Obama-hate is cranked up to 11 there. Obama moves into the "No clear influence in politics" section. Also, being an attorney and selling shitloads of books is no career... says Andy Schlafly... attorney.img And before we forget, he was only a part-time instructor at the University of Chicago.img --Sid (talk) 02:01, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Someone needs to add Andy under the "No clear influence in politics" section. Andy Schlafly - Silver spoon fed trust fund baby, ran for congress and failed miserably. Now runs hate blog, which also fails miserably. Aceof SpadesSilverbrain.png 02:16, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Someone just didimg Ace. immediately reverted of course, and no it wasn't me. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:52, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
This is pure brilliance. Real career: Ronald Reagan, actor. Not a real career: Clint Eastwood, actor. Real career: Washington, general. Needs further discussion: Eisenhower, general. Real career: Ron Johnson, CEO of Paucus. Not a real career: Rick Snyder, president of Gateway. Also, singer and pitcher are real careers, professor, physicist, and accountant are not. Are we sure Andy isn't mentally retarded? DickTurpis (talk) 04:19, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
"John Glenn - Marine Corps pilot, astronaut" - Apparently serving you country as a marine (with 90 total combat missions during the Korean War) and being an astronaut, only of the most ballsy jobs in existence doesn't cut it as a "real careers", but being an "accomplished singer" as Jimmie Davis was, well that's a career worth noting. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 05:11, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Had to add this reference: John Glenn has had jobs. Maybe someone should mention that to Andy. reichhol (talk) 16:03, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Andy is falling over backwards to try and exclude Obama from that list. Which is funny coming from one of the least influential people in the US. Aceof SpadesSilverbrain.png 05:17, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I actually laughed out loud when I read "Ronald Reagan - [...] architect of the fall of communism". My previous job actually was being an architect of the fall of communism. It's a pretty tough job to get and the pay is okay, but I quit because of the hours. It was such a real job though! GTac (talk) 06:08, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, at least this new project should offer Andy an opportunity to bond with his parodists. I thought he'd been neglecting them lately. Röstigraben (talk) 06:16, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Of course, Rob currently holds the post of the architect of the fall of communism. He thinks it's a real job too. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 07:23, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
This desperately needed a WIGO so added one. Feel free to improve. I tried to capture most of the ridiculousness in a readable format, but think it could be better. GTac (talk) 08:19, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Also would add a link to the ridiculous logical fallacy Andy is making with saying "A president doesn't have to be politically influential because some non-politicians were influential" but I don't know the name. GTac (talk) 08:22, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
It took a little while, but I think I understand what he's trying to do with the essay. He wants to draw a correlation between the prior profession and the ability to be 'influential.' Besides that it's trying to compare apples and oranges, it's also exactly as subjective as most of his works. Ultimately, it boils down to being a list of politicians that he approves of, and those he's ambivalent about, and those he disapproves of. -Lardashe
But even in that short list, there's a ridiculous overlap between the two. Ronald Raygun? Actor, very influential! Arnold Schwarzenegger? Actor, not very influential! Also, the talk page shows that with Barack Obama he's clearly talking about his job as president, not what he was before.. GTac (talk) 11:38, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
It's nothing new that he's trying to promote his AAPS buddy Ron Paul, but calling him "the single most influential presidential candidate in the past decadeimg"? Apart from the two guys who actually became president, three others who at least got nominated, a vice president, a secretary of state, and a very prominent issue advocate? That's way over the top even for his standards. Röstigraben (talk) 21:31, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
My favourite part of the essay is how Vladimir Putin is inexplicably afforded his own category (Other) with another famous politician who had a real career before entering politics - (please add examples). This is a 'featured essay' on the frontpage of his blog; how deep into the netherlands between parody and reality can he sink? Tielec01 (talk) 06:29, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
And Margaret Thatcher didn't have a career before she went into politics. She only majored in Chemistry. Which will come as an awful shock to the company she worked for and developed new emulsification methods for in ice cream production. He really is a dickhead isn't he? Oldusgitus (talk) 09:16, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Misreading of Andy's essay[edit]

I think many are misreading this essay. Nowhere do I read, aside from the further discussion section, where Andy says that the careers are not real. He says, rightly or wrongly, they were not influential in politics. ConservapediaEditor (talk) 08:29, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

You're right, what Andy's arguing is far more illogical than that. The second category is clearly not the opposite of the first, but somehow he hasn't realized that. He seems to assume that politicians who haven't had a meaningful career outside politics are by definition not influential inside politics. Therefore, for him, the second category is a perfect contrast to the first. We're in "not even wrong" territory. Junggai (talk) 08:37, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Indeed. As for the WIGO, I just posted what he stated in his essay. Judging from the second category, it seems like he is talking about "influence in politics", but that's not what the first category or the title of the essay says. In addition to this, I first assumed that with Obama he meant he had no influential career outside of politics, but the talk page makes it clear he does include his current job of president too. It's just another big clusterfuck where Andy just wants to force people he likes and dislikes in boxes and doesn't care about none of it making sense. GTac (talk) 08:46, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Also come on, ConservapediaEditor.. Outside of the list and reference, that essay contains pretty much a title, two subtitles and one line of description. The title is "Essay:Politicians Who Had a Real Career" and the one line of description is "This is a list of significant politicians who had a real career (outside of politics)". How can you say that you don't read anywhere that Andy is saying the careers are not real? GTac (talk) 08:50, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
This is quickly developing into another "Young Mass Murderers" (some of which are not young and/or not mass murderers) where Andy silently defines "influence" in such a specific way to only include people he likes. --Sid (talk) 11:07, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Ya, standard trick. You make up your own criteria, you make up your own results, you assert that you've proved something fundamentally important about the world. You can see it in all the crank disciplines. Supporting such analysis in the face of changing facts relies on a sort of reverse Occam's razor: "My explanation is very complicated, the new information you have noticed is to be expected due to a complication I haven't had time to properly explain to laymen such as yourself".

True indeed. Well, of course I'd have no way of knowing, but I'd suspect that there are currently two groups (much like the old "general CP Sysop" group and the secret "fab-five" group) and that Rob was only allowed into the first group, and that Kara is angrily condemning him in the elite group and demanding his removal. He's probably also complaining a lot about Psy. But of course that's just speculation on my part. Refugeetalk page 06:50, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
He's throwing a bone to the Old Guard screaming for my head. If TK were around, TK I beleive would have actually supported elements of a reform movement. Karajou still thinks it's 2007 when he was awarded the banhammer from me & TK.
My beef with Karajou is this: when Andy first proposed Range blocks, Karajou & TK should have gone to MetaWiki & did their homework and reported back to Andy what it all meant before they did anything because obviously Andy doesn't have the time. That would have been the proper role of a sysop in helping the boss. Instead, they blindly felt Andy knew it all, which everyone knows he needs technical advice, and implemented this program. This was a collossal error in serving Andy & the CP project. Karajou still thinks wielding the banhammer is the answer to all problems, despite the fact everyone can see how useless it is. Nothing gets done. The Community does not grow, articles are not created, articles are not updated, but countless years a squandered because that is what these guys think a sysop is, somebody who denies troublemakers access to the webserver-- their only experience being what happened to them in Wikipedia. nobsput down the toilet seat 16:54, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── Andy endorsed rescinding

Administrators and Bureaucrats are the final authority as to policy and procedures. Their instructions, as to Conservapedia policy and/or the appropriateness or inappropriateness of user actions, are to be followed [5]

and that a blocking policy should be built around the following 11 words,

Conservapedia is an open wiki that does not allow cp:liberal censorship.

Liberal censorship is largely a rehash of TK's work that essentially says liberal censorship is trolling. My problem is largely with Karajou. It began with his block of the real life Chip Berlet. After 4 years, Berlet finally came to protest somethings in his bio and never edited outside the talk page. Karajou googled him, decided he was a liberal, and blocked him in total contravention of all CP policies. Now my problems with Berlet date from a time Berlet & others created a bio page on Daniel Brandt solely as a hit piece. When Brandt protested, he was blocked at Wikipedia. Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons was created out of this dispute (see cp:Wikipedia:The Daniel Brandt controversy. It is grossly unfair to use a wiki to destroy a persons character, and then deny that same person the opportunity to defend themself in an open forum there. That's what was behind my efforts to defend Conservapedia in Wikipedia in the Spring of 2010. Even there, the minute I mentioned Dr. Peter Lipson, I was warned about WP:BLP, and trust me, few wiki editors are as intimitely familiar with the rational behind BLP than myself. But all of this is lost on Karajou. Did Chip Berlet vandalize Conservapedia? NO. Did Chip Berlet troll Conservapedia? No. All he did was ask for some fairness in his bio, and Karajou banned him as a liberal. I emailed Berlet, apologized, unblocked him, and invited him back. But Berlet has no interest now in ever getting involved in the project, and can probably do the project serious damage based on his personal experience, dealing with Karajou. But Karajou is as dense as brick, expecting him to understand any of the serious issues invovled. nobsput down the toilet seat 23:34, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Karajou pushed me most of the way with his utter inability to spot parody even when diffs are supplied (while blocking the messenger for not being polite enough), and Ed now sealed the deal.

2012 Presidential Elections: Jeb Bush[edit]

Andy's imaginary Presidential election gets more interesting. Jeb Bush is still #3img as most likely to win the nomination, which is fascinating since his high-profile son, Jeb Bush Jr., has now endorsed Jon Huntsman. Will this knock Jeb out of Andy's race, or will Andy assume that this means that privately the Bush family is at war with itself?

Why, that's reminiscent of the classic conservative parable of the ant and the grasshopper. The ant labored all summer to build up a food surplus, while the grasshopper just mooched off her promising to pay her back eventually. But when winter came, he still hadn't collected any food and found himself on the verge of default. So he put on a tri-corner hat, gave a rambling speech about the gold standard and insisted that he could just ignore his creditors. Then they both starved. So kids, don't be suckers who produce more than they consume. Röstigraben (talk) 06:40, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Wait a second didn't we just a few weeks back sing the song of "US is so deep in debt not even the Chinese won't give Obama money anymore"? I guess if they were inept and don't invest in the US, then the US is a good investment? Which means that Obama is a good POTUS because he made the country more "investable" - but he is also a communist/socialist/atheist/muslim/liberal so he actually has no fuckin' clue what he is doing.

You didn't?! Well you do now!img He seriously has the Earth ejaculating all over the entire Solar System like in some cheap interstellar porno flick.

My favorite part though from his article on his website is this little gem:

The water came to Mars all at once, during the same great bombardment that pockmarked the Moon, gave it its “face,” and locked it to keep that face toward the earth.

He seriously claims that a rock bombardment from the Earth is responsible for the Moon being tidally locked; there isn't a face palm big enough to express what I think of that. --BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 15:12, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Question Evolution! debate page[edit]

Just a matter of timeimg before more users refute one question after another and Conservative goes on a censorship/trolling spree or deletes the whole thing. Anyone else chuckle when they read question one and wonder how creationists can be so dishonest (or stupid) as to think the origin of life can be explained by evolution? AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:01, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

I didn't chuckle (it was more of a groan), but it's indeed funny how this campaign starts out by showcasing that they don't even comprehend what the Theory of Evolution actually covers. And Ken won't censor, I guess. He'll either claim that these are all "faux answers", or he'll suddenly be busy for a few months again. Lalala, can't hear you! --Sid (talk) 17:15, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

One thing I learned a long ago on Ray Comfort's blog, where he used to challenge evolution with such amazing questions as "How did the first male of a species find a female?" and "which came first, blood or the heart?", is that these folk don't want answers to their questions. All they *really* want is for people to read the questions and think "Hey, yeah..." A lot of those people will read up on the subject and find out the answer. A few of them will accept it as a valid criticism of evolution and follow in their footsteps. That's all this bullshit is; evangelism. It's not an honest search for answers, or even an honest critique of evolution. It's just modernised evangelism. X Stickman (talk) 21:39, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
@Pippa. The creatards have a difficult job understanding any of the atheist or scientific positions, they can only view it all through their own narrow worldview. So atheism is a "religion" because it's a belief and evolution has quantised steps which must have occurred within the last 10,000 years because that's all they can comprehend.

I love his angry logic that was posted above. "You can't tell me what to do. Andy is in charge of the website, not you. Now do what I tell you to do, despite the fact that I haven't consulted with Andy." Also I have to imagine that at some point in his life, he's taken a management course or something (maybe in the navy?) that has taught him that telling people what to do by phrasing it as some kind of mind control command ("you are leaving this website") is either really effective or really intimidating.

It is absolutely amazing that after Bugler, TK et al that Andy/Karajou etc still cannot spot a parodist. Aceof SpadesSilverbrain.png 21:53, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, it's amazing, amusing and depressing at the same time. It's also why I have completely given up on the project (yes, yet again) - it's engineered to cater to parodists (agreeing with Andy's nonsense gives you a promotion, trying to show him how he is wrong makes you face abuse), and at the same time completely fails at detecting the people who do in fact "sneak in". It's sad to see how desperately CP clings to approval that they blindly lap it up whenever it's given. --Sid (talk) 22:07, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
The alternative explanation is that that's exactly the type of user they want. Maybe they view the damage in terms of parody articles, leaked emails and eventual delete/block sprees is far outweighed by the benefits of months of angry blocking. Perhaps angry blocking is the whole reason CP exists. It would explain Karajou's persistence. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:10, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
The nicities of polite editing are just lost on this bunch. Seriously, TK was a moderate who would listen, and could at times be reasoned with. Without TK's moderating influence, it's unrestrained hatred and mockery of anyone and anything Karajou & Conservative percieve as their enemy. And Karajou, if you followed the Rationalwiki/Conservapedia Spring 2010 Wikipedia Offensive, how did this note I scribbled to a Wikipedia bureaucrat escape you? nobsput down the toilet seat 22:26, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

I'm sorry, Robert, did you just say "TK's moderating influence"?!?!?!? BbMaj7 On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog. 22:45, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Yep'n I did. I long for TK's moderating influence right now in these backroom debates. As to Jcw, he's playing too well, he's already Karajou's adopted illigitimate step-child. And everyone's screaming for blood over there, with Karajou playing the perfect patsy, again. I would like to have shown the example to CP sysops how to be an Advocate, gently requesting Jcw be less harsh and reconsider week long blocks he issued without warning, but he's already got too much of Karajou partisan blood. He'll be in the sysop group in no time at this rate, with Karajou's help, or maybe this can be observed this as a test case of the influence Karajou's imagines he has with Andy. nobsput down the toilet seat 23:22, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Robert, TK was a troll who actively set out to destroy CP and pretty much succeeded. What, pray tell, is "moderate" about that? BbMaj7 On the Internet, nobody knows you're a dog. 23:29, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

TK could moderate sysop fights; he could redirect the animosity some sysops had for each other against ratvandals.
Oh, and another message for Karajou, I never called Conservapedia what you claim I said, I said YOU created a shithole. nobsput down the toilet seat 23:44, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
You know, rather than doing the passive-aggressive thing and leaving Karajou litte red telephone messages here you could just say it on his talk page. It's long past due that someone told Kendoll he was mentally ill and should seek help, for example. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:55, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Rob, TK was very good at playing the voice of reason. Emphasis on PLAYING. Everything he did, he did for a purpose. If he was showing "moderating influence", look for the reason. Sometimes he was in hot water, sometimes he had needled various users (including sysops) into attacking each other so he could "moderate", and sometimes he was simply lazy and opted to work on his reputation as a voice of reason. (Or to borrow your own words: "This gains brownie points and recognition as an editor who solves problems, builds consensus, gets people to get along, not disruptive, an asset to the project, etc etc.") Don't make the mistake of thinking that he did ANYTHING for the benefit of the site. Whenever he was involved, it was for his own good.
You may cheer when he defused a sysop fight to make them focus on "vandals" (which he often enough directly aided), and we cheered when he was openly manipulating sysops into attacking each other. But that doesn't mean that he was on our side or on CP's side - he was on his own side, and he wanted to make sure that everybody but him would ultimately lose.
Karajou's only tool is a sledgehammer, and his motto is "If brute force doesn't solve your problems, you're clearly not using enough!" In that sense, he is less scheming troll and more elephant in a porcelain shop.
And you thought you could maybe get Jcw to be less harsh? Please, it would've been just a repetition of history: Senior sysops also asked Bugler to play nice when he went overboard. And he said yes... and then simply pushed harder, and everybody in the secret group (except for PJR, etc.) loved him for that. Don't feel bad - Jcw is the new Bugler, and you wouldn't have been able to stop him or slow him down, even without all the other idiocy going on right now. He's an A-class parodist who identifies the currently strongest abusing asshole and then clones his behavior. Bugler was a TK clone, Jcw is a Karajou clone. --Sid (talk) 23:57, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Good recap, Sid, and I'm in agreement with much. TK'S habit of acting unilaterally, despite lengthy discussions on probable outcomes, set an extremely poor example & preceedent. Now you see Karajou, unrestrained, acting unilaterally, whereas in the old days, he generally follwed TK's lead. Conservative, on the other hand, was always a loose cannon, and as everyone knows, was pointedly not invited into the early sysop private discussion groups. He was always a problem, and all of us routinely discussed who among us could actually communicate in some way with him/her, or what was the latest vandal-horde attack he was inciting on his own. Conservative always acted unilaterally without discussion. nobsput down the toilet seat 00:21, 12 August 2011 (UTC)
