Most linked-to pages question[edit]

Anybody else notice something weird around #11? Also, #42 is noteworthy for good wiki maintenance. A redlinked page with 918 incoming links. B♭maj7 (talk) I feel worse than the Cordova Jewish community after what happened to them in 1391 16:29, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

That's weird about #11. Any ideas what's going on there? DickTurpis (talk) 16:37, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
A question for Nx, I reckon. B♭maj7 (talk) I feel worse than the Cordova Jewish community after what happened to them in 1391 16:50, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
#42 - so much for Karajou's birdfest which he has gone cold on. Actually, all but one of the top 50 Wanted Pages are Karajou's redlinking. The odd one out is DouglasA's deletion of cp:Skepdic which is referenced by their atheism navbox. This a prime example of everything that is so pathetic about CP. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 17:12, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
#11 is probably this bug, i.e. anchor only links like #something. -- Nx / talk 17:56, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Yet another reason why CP can't succeed[edit]

As if we needed any more. Your first edit was to get into a debate on a talk page, the classic tactict of a parodistimg Now that's how you welcome new editors. άλφαΤαλκ 17:48, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

I admit it was a dick thing to do, but it isn't any less true that parodists tend to get involved in things they really should NOT be getting into if they were real new users. . --Mikalosa (talk) 17:52, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
There, i very pointlessly fixed it, while allowing myself to leave--Mikalosa (talk) 18:16, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Of course the first classic tactic of a parodist once you have your rights is to block all and sundry on the slightest pretext. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 18:17, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Hot parodist on parodist action[edit]

I see Desmond Morris has returned and is bent on reclaiming his spot as chief toady. This involves selling his fellow parodist SeanS down the river. Isn't CP exciting? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 21:34, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Let's see:
  • Sucking hard, and swallowing the resulting koolaid: check!
  • Turning on others at the drop of a hat: check!
  • Ignoring sysop abuses so far: check!
  • Contributing next to nothing to the wiki: check!
DMorris, another wall in their bunker of ignorance. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 21:57, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Given I blocked myself after unblocking a few people kara/ed blocked, I don't expect much of a competition with whoever he is.--Mikalosa (talk) 21:58, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Ah, so you were SeanS. Being a total cock may be a good way to move up the ranks at CP, but at the end of the day you're still a total cock. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:02, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Yep. Twas a fun run but I expected to be banned in april, or when I called the site on its flaws last month. When neither happened I had to find another way to engineer getting off the active user roster, (besides my long running plan to be banned without actually breaking a rule. ). It's been... a good what, 4 hours since I did that b\and I'm still able to unban myself if I wish--Mikalosa (talk) 22:04, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Sockpuppeting is against the rules. --Opcn (talk) 23:29, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Fun thing, im not a sock, nor is he ASAIK, so what are you getting at? --Mikalosa (talk) 23:50, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
SeanS is the asshole that infini-blocked me over there. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:19, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Who were you, and I apologize, if you were not a rule breaker obviously.,--Mikalosa (talk) 00:46, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
SteveK. Karajerk banned some poor random user for being a sock of SteveK, and then SeanS comes derpin' along and bans me for having a sock. Doesn't matter much now. --Inquisitor (talk) 02:08, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
My claim that you were a sock is based on your tag which you put on your userpage here which states that you have 5 blocks at conservapedia. No single account gets 5 blocks any more, the most minor infractions get 5 year blocks. --Opcn (talk) 02:00, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
First account woulda been in '08. I don't remember the username anymore, but I get the feeling it was one of them banned for a "wrong" username. I had, 2 more along those lines and one was banned a edit i made to the Earthy talk page. I've never been IP banned from what I can tell. Oh and I still have block rights. I get the feeling im just not noticeable enough >.>--Mikalosa (talk) 04:14, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Andy has the attention span of a gnat, part 1,432,806[edit]

Schlaflyverse: "Government school prevents students from raising their hands to ask a question.img"
The next sentence (second sentence in the article): Students are instructed to give a thumbs up when they want to ask a question. Maybe I'm missing something and handraising is, in and of itself, a conservative principle? Godspeed (talk) 20:17, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Saw this yesterday: it is fucking stupid. I haven't read anything pro it & most think it's daft. Scream!! (talk) 20:24, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I agree with Andy that it sounds fairly silly and is either a solution to a non-existing problem or a stupid solution. Of course, Andy then goes on to show why CP is a joke by putting the emphasis on "GOVERNMENT school", as if this had been some political decision from higher up and not just a single school's administrators feeling the need to justify their existence. Because this NEVER could have happened in a private school or homeschool class! Nope! Those only make wise choices! --Sid (talk) 20:33, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, it sounded to me like Andy was saying the schools were trying to prevent the students from asking questions at all. Maybe I'm the only one, though. Godspeed (talk) 20:36, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Seems like an idea worth trying. Can't imagine what Andy thinks is so horrible. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:43, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Government schools should be run like CP. when children raise their hands and don't follow it with an explanation about how right the teacher is they should have their tongues cut out and their arms cut off. --Opcn (talk) 20:50, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

The only thing i could think was that Aschlafly thought that the Government school was making an over-the-top political correctness link between raising hands and the fascist salute? B♭maj7 (talk) I feel worse than the Cordova Jewish community after what happened to them in 1391 21:09, 5 October 2011 (UTC)

Of course, in Andy's classroom, the first student to emit a primitive grunt is given the credit for knowing the answer and is given a gold star. Saves so much time compared to the liberal practice of having to know the answer. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 22:12, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Wait, do all Brit student still have to do that? When I think back of my last years in school, we generally didn't raise our hands — we just spoke. Of course the official rule is that you have to raise your hand and wait till your asked to speak, but then again, almost half of those teacher were ex-hippies ("68ers"). We only raised our hands when there was a discussion going on (yeah! we have those in our classrooms!) and several people wanted to speak but that was only so the teacher could make himself a mental note. Also when the teacher just was lecturing something and seemingly not going to be pleased if we just said something in the middle - and with lecture I mean something between a speech and a rant.
A good reason for this new rule you can test yourself: try to hold your hand raised for 5, then 10 minutes and tell me how it feels. --ʤɱ heretic 22:52, 5 October 2011 (UTC)
Hey, there are some sadhus who hold a hand over their heads for years at a time. Maybe Andy thinks raising your hand instils devotion to the gods. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:14, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
If you're having to hold your hand up for a solid 5-10 minutes just to ask a question, then the teacher/lecturer/janitor/lightswitch is actively ignoring you and it doesn't matter what your "I wish to speak" gesture is. X Stickman (talk) 00:31, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Not when you're in a discussion with 10 participants. --ʤɱ sinner 10:44, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Ken talks about himself[edit]

Not only does ken have a outgoing personality...img but he also has a Professor friend, who thinks he is a master diplomat fit for admin. work:) --Mikalosa (talk) 00:48, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

I am guessing Ken was taking part in either a drug trial or a sleeping studyimg. Any takers? Aceace 01:03, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Ken doesn't sleep. SoCal 212 01:06, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Ohh! i just got a great idea for one of Ken's Essays: Atheism and Insomnia. LordSlug You want me to do...work? what's that? 01:12, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
"I can be very diplomatic" I'm just going to let that sink in...--Thunderstruck (talk) 01:16, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
"They even wanted to feed me"img Now that is really odd...Aceace 01:46, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Ken's a genetic experiment. it all makes sense LordSlug You want me to do...work? what's that? 01:54, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
A lot of times "academic establishments" have food tables for events. "Feel free to help yourself to the vegetable dip." Looks like Ken made a friend. Has anyone speculated that he works in some kind of tech support field. Sometimes you can work from home and often you can have irregular hours which would explain his all night editing. Maybe he had to go to the education establishment for some on site support? --Marlow (talk) 01:59, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I find it extraordinarily creepy that a grown man uses so many smiley faces in his posts. My 10 year old sugar-and-spice girly-girl cousin doesn't use as many smileys in stuff she writes online (she also makes less mistakes and takes less revisions to post something coherent). Does he... I mean, is that what he thinks being nice is? Or sarcastic? Or... smug? Or what? Because it's not normal at all, especially for someone who should be aware of netiquette. X Stickman (talk) 02:05, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Smug, definitely smug. Aceace 02:12, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

quick. Somebody screencap that on andys talk page. I am on cell and it will not work joyaBAD KITTY! 02:11, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

You know who told Ken he has an outgoing personality? His mom, that's who. --Inquisitor (talk) 02:31, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Alright, folks, I'm calling it.[edit]

Caveat: I am as guilty as any of us. That said, it's time to stop picking on the mentally ill. It's time to stop poking the mentally ill with a stick in order to make him dance for us. It's been four years, and we should be feeling pretty shitty about ourselves. He's obviously not doing well, he's obviously not balanced, he obviously needs help. We've said it for years, but we keep pointing and laughing and making him do more and more crazy shit. It's time to leave him alone, and hope he gets the help he needs once he realizes that nobody is paying any attention to him anymore. B♭maj7 (talk) I feel worse than the Cordova Jewish community after what happened to them in 1391 02:55, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

I've been starting to feel the same way. I just didn't know how it'd go over. SoCal 212 03:09, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
(ec)We've had this discussion again and again. In the end we aren't going to stop making fun of Ken, he is not so mentally ill that his dickishness is excusable. If he were mentally ill (unable to realize that his arguments are non sequiters, and completely obsessed) but not a dick about it we would leave him alone. --Opcn (talk) 03:12, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
These aren't the actions of a sane personimg but the doesn't mean they are indefensible. And they says more about Andy than Ken. Aceace 03:15, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Who is the greater villain, the child who pokes the caged animal with a stick, or the zookeeper who put the animal in the cage? I agree with Ace, all of this User:Conservative nonsense is more Andy's fault than Ken's. He's the one who has the beast on display. And BTW, nobody is getting Ken any additional help. It should be obvious from the amount of time he spends editing (instead of sleeping, working, making love, going out with friends...etc) he already is some sort of shut-in that has someone looking after him. And since rattling away on a keyboard 24 hrs a day keeps him docile and out of his caregiver's hair... they damn sure aren't going to shake his monkey tree. "Hee hee you shoulda seen how mad I made them atheists today Momma!" "That's nice Kenny... now which flavor Hot Pockets do you want for lunch today? "Ham and cheese! And bring 'em to my room. I have lots of writing to do. Lots of writing..." --Inquisitor (talk) 03:36, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
The issue, as it see it here, is no one at CP cares about each other outside of there little corners of the internet. Look at TK for example he disappeared for months and no one at CP cared to see what happened to him or even seemed to notice he was gone. In a larger environment such as RW or WP that might happen quite easily but CP was/is so small that if a major force like TK went missing alarms bells would ring. The same applies here - Andy is steadfastly ignoring the cluster fuck going on on his own wiki through the actions of an increasingly deranged individual. Aceace 03:45, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I think I'm drifting towards the "let him wallow" camp myself. I think Kenny's the ultimate Poe: a faceless and persistent source of batshit that can only be the product of either profound stupidity or extremely dedicated parody, nothing in between. I honestly can't tell you which it is for certain, though I will say his whole "Christianity is the fire burning down the house" angle really made me lean towards parodist...all that said, it doesn't matter. He's either a dumbass or a fake, and we should just stop feeding his ego regardless of which. SaladinMostly Harmless. 04:15, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Don't forget it was a house possibly filled with dangerous chemicals and the fireman was probably an atheist. Aceace 04:17, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
And there's the genius (or stupidity) of the act! He'll say something that seems to obviously be a parody, then he'll rationalize it with some dumbass claim that brings us back to thinking he's just stupid...if he's a parodist, then I'll be the first to admit he's bloody brilliant. Otherwise, holy shit what a fucking moron... SaladinMostly Harmless. 04:28, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Yep, it's whole Travesty, Tragedy, or Troll trilemma. Ken is sane and he honestly believes he is laying out the most effective arguments for his case... that would be a Travesty. Ken is insane and can't be made to understand how ridiculous his arguments are... that would be a Tragedy. Or finally, he's simply a Troll. Since I refuse to believe that any sane person could or would troll with his feverish intensity for years on end... I've chosen to rule out the Troll option. I'm caught in between the first two though... --Inquisitor (talk) 04:39, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Ha, well put. I'll admit the all-night editing sprees alone make the troll angle a little suspect...maybe it's just my innate desire to keep believing that nobody can actually be as stupid as Ken appears to be that makes me even entertain the idea anymore...SaladinMostly Harmless. 04:44, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
For me the worst part is how reasonable he can be when it comes to different issues. I just don't understand it. I consider myself a reasonable moderate conservative (I am knee deep in shit on my facebook page because of my dislike of the Occupy Wallstreet rigamarole) and I think that the Ken who isn't stuck on idiot mode would be someone I could be friends with. I wish he would take his meds. --Opcn (talk) 08:02, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

  • His sleeping pattern is as irregularly as TK's was
  • If he is visiting a college, he's one of these annoying brats who keep typing during lectures...
  • Andy should look into this, but he won't.

BTW, these concerns were raised at Conservapedia, in a nowadays deleted section of Talk:Causes of atheismimg

Really, Ken?


Don't you have ANYTHING to say about my challenge? There's no need to run away; if you don't want to debate a simple "No thank you, I'd rather not" will be quite sufficient. I mean, it's not like I'm some sort of power-crazed vindictive bigot or anything. voiceoftruth2006 --LeonardS 03:16, 27 September 2011 (EDT)

Have you read Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder yet? There is hope and healing available. Conservative 03:27, 27 September 2011 (EDT)
Interesting article. But it is not necessary to be obsessed with you, dear User:Conservative, to spot some inconsistencies between some of your statements and your actions: one can look into the logs of Conservapedia (your log-entries can be found here). E.g., you stated on 31 July 2011 (and repeatedly after this date):
I am not going to be very active at Conservapedia for the near term.
On the other hand, you performed more than 5,200 logged actions after that date - as many as the next three busiest sysops (Aschlafly, Karajou and Jpatt) together. Generally your behavior doesn't change, whether you announce to have a full schedule in the following 90 days or not.
You achieve this remarkable output by contributing to Conservapedia without much pause: over the last three days I couldn't find a period where you have been away from the computer form more than 6 1/2 h: you should try to avoid to have this lack of sleep to have an influence on the quality of your contributions.
But this is not to uncommon for you: you can go for a nearly a whole day making pauses of half an hour, or for a couple of days without resting for six hours at a time. The only other sysop at Conservapedia who would do the same was TK. Now, it's clear why he showed this pattern - his illness didn't allow him to sleep for more than a precious two, three hours.
Your fellow sysops failed to spot TK's problems. I'm afraid they keep up this habit of ignoring disturbing signs in other editors...

Ronlar, I don't think it's very appropriate for you to be bringing up medical conditions in a public place. --DrDean 09:16, 27 September 2011 (EDT)
Sorry, I didn't want to bring up medical conditions, I just made some - as I hope helpful - observations, without offering a diagnosis. BTW: is cp:Essay: Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder a medical condition?
RonLar 09:25, 27 September 2011 (EDT)
Definitely not in the DSM --DrDean 09:50, 27 September 2011 (EDT)
RonLar, setting aside whether your observations are correct about my sleep patterns and your apparent obsessiveness about my editing and sleep patterns, I will point out to you that some people don't need a lot of sleep and a cursory knowledge of history is all that is needed to know this. But I will make the allowance that perhaps you are an atheist that went to public schools and didn't learn much about history because you didn't apply yourself. With that being said, here is a list of famous people in history who didn't need a lot of sleep: Famous people who didn't need a lot of sleep. So even if you did obsessively log my time at Conservapedia (see: Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder), you certainly have to take that into account. Plus, to my knowledge, there is no rule at Conservapedia indicating that people cannot share an account. Just out of curiosity why do you think there are some atheists who are very obsessed with myself and Conservapedia? I can assure you the obsession is not one that is mutually shared as the lives of obscure atheist vandal community members are not exactly riveting. Conservative 00:02, 29 September 2011 (EDT)
you maybe an atheist who want to public school and didn't learn much about history because you didn't apply yourself. I have had enough of your insults Conservative. Just cease it and be respectful of others as commanded: And a servant of the Lord must not quarrel but be gentle to all ... (2 Timothy 2:24). MaxFletcher 00:15, 29 September 2011 (EDT)

User:Conservative, thanks for reacting to my comment. Let's have a look a it - I hope just answering to you won't get me blocked:

  • to my knowledge, there is no rule at Conservapedia indicating that people cannot share an account No, there isn't, and there have been examples of this practice: cp:User:History and cp:User:CPanel spring to mind. Of course, you could be many - and this would explain you turning down even an audio debate. But you look more honorable seen as a single person:
    • in all your challenges you use the 1st person singular: my articles, my work, etc. It would be deceitful to create this impression when asking Dawkins, Jillette (and others) to a debate, who must assume that you are a single person. And you won't be that deceptive, I hope?
    • it would be lovely to read your manual of style which would be necessary to keep up your profile. This could be an excerpt:
  1. Don't use the preview button!
  2. phrase of the month: with regards to obese bestiality Use it often!
  3. Really, don't use the preview button!

  • I will point out to you that some people don't need a lot of sleep An interesting list of famous people you are giving there. But keep in mind that sleeping is not the only thing which prevents you from editing Conservapedia. Even living today, those celebrities would have difficulties to keep up a 18-hours-a-day pattern of editing, as they would have jobs (you certainly have to take that into account) - Frankly, could Thomas Edison have invented anything if he would have been detracted by the Internet for most of his waking time?
  • So even if you did obsessively log my time at Conservapedia […] That's the fun of the WikiMedia software - I don't have to log your time, it's done automatically for me...

This cracked me up so much I have to comment. I work in mental health, and I honestly believe Ken is in a long term inpatients facility, or at least some form of supervised accommodation. It would fit with the possibility he has some form of psychiatric diagnosis (possibly Asperger's spectrum), and would explain why he is able to edit for such long periods of time (he stays in his room all day/night) and why he doesn't appear to hold down a job or have any commitments.
People who are in such facilities often attend hospitals or universities, whether it be for mental health assessments, volunteer work or developing work skills. It's most likely that the people there would be praising of his work, not necessarily because they believed it but because it's the polite thing to do.
If this is the truth, I'd recommend criticising him less. People with diagnoses such as Asperger's do have an excuse for being dickish, and criticising them is just going to make them worse (especially if they believe they are on some sort of mission against people like us). It can often take years of training and experience before someone can communicate with someone like that, even TK the most manipulative troll I've seen, considered him too zany to touch. Just let him go on his way writing articles, it doesn't affect us in any way, the only person who will suffer is Andy.
Just a thought... RyanC (talk) 10:20, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
This makes a lot of sense to me. My latest escapade at CP suggests to me that Conservative has genuine problems in two-way communication with other people. As human beings, we should have sympathy for him. The fact that he's using CP as a playground is Andy's problem, not ours, and we should leave him alone - i.e. can we have a moratorium on winding him up, either on RW or as parodists on CP. We should be aiming our fire at genuinely malicious people who want to destroy our grandchildren's planet. The Real James Brown (talk) 12:04, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
I doubt he's institutionalized based on a few facts. First, he is frequently up all night. He's been adding identical nonsense to everything he can think of for the last 13 hours with only A 1.5 and 2.5 hour break. That's 8 hours of finger painting with shit overnight. Inpatient care of any sort does not permit this kind of behavior. Second, inpatients are closely supervised down to monitoring something they spend so much time at. He would not be permitted to obsess over content like this to this degree. He also would not be permitted to engage in unlawful conduct I will not specify that caused concerned parties to confirm personal information in case the need arose to take swift action. He at least maintains his own residence. At most you can speculate he receives some kind of outpatient care but I don't believe even that's the case; It looks far more like at least 7 years of consistently erratic behavior has not only continued unabated but gotten significanty worse in the last year or so. That's not remotely indicative that anyone, whether it be his family, or doctors if they exist, ever addressing his condition. That's ultimately one of the most tragic things about him. He's either like Dennis Markuze with the only constant figure in his life thinking everything is ok despite glaring evidence to the contrary or he's completely alone. Either way, from the limited experience people like Andy and his thugs have of him, one would have expected quick remedial action at least on CP and by email instead of quiet and infrequent befuddlement, or worse, flat out taking advantage. Thats but one reason I shake my head when I see any of them talking about regulating others' conduct when their own is simply shameful. User:Conservative is falling apart at the seams. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 12:49, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
There are many different levels of inpatient care. The wards which operate like that (high levels of supervision, structured activities etc) are typically short term facilities for exacerbations of illnesses (eg a schizophrenic forgetting to take their meds). What I'm thinking is more like a supervised group home - where patients are provided with a bed, food, social work and access to healthcare, but they aren't strictly monitored and are allowed to perform their own activities. These are where a lot of chronically mentally ill patients end up where their disorder is not causing immediate harm, but still prevents them from getting a job and functioning "normally" within society.
Just because someone's behaviour is erratic doesn't mean it isn't being treated. Things like Asperger's, personality disorders, intellectual disabilities etc cannot be solved by simply giving someone a pill. It takes years of therapy to see a difference, and in many cases it's more teaching someone how to best function with their illness rather than actually treating it. And of course you actually have to have the patient on board in order to do that. You cannot force someone to stop obsessing over something, on a legal level you cannot interfere unless there is an immediate and serious risk of harm to themselves or another, and on a psychological level it would likely have the opposite effect (turning them against you). It's would be entirely possible for Ken to see a psychiatrist ever single day and still be the way he is. After all, is it really causing him any harm? I'd argue it beneficial, it gives him a purpose in life, and keeps him busy when he'd otherwise just be sitting around getting angry at the world for not accepting him (and worst case scenario, turn out like this guy...
RyanC (talk) 13:42, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Wow. I'd never considered that this behavior could be him somewhere on the "better day" end of the spectrum vs. what his behavior would be like if he was actually untreated. Who really knows. When I ask my psychiatrist dad about stuff like this he'll only talk abstractly about how certain behavior may correspond to any number of conditions but he's always clear that only an actual consultation with the patient can give enough information to correlate this behavior with that behavior with that MRI image or thyroid stimulating hormone level, etc. etc. etc. and come up with a meaningful diagnosis, which even then is subject to refinement or even being completely abandoned as caregivers learn more. Conversations like this feel like douchey wankery the the minute I go back and look so I feel like an ignoramus for getting involved in these discussions except to the extent they present a nearly unique opportunity to express concern for this person's wellbeing. As you taught me to my surprise, this may actually be him being well cared for. In any event, while I'm inclined to believe he's a nasty jerk in his heart and that his true nature comes out when he gets on a tear like this, it makes me sad that I can't imagine anyone possibly enjoying being him for a single moment. I've gotta admit I wish him the best even if it never looks like it. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 16:31, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
While I can't speak for his past, I assure you that Ken does not live in an institution of any sort. He is compulsive, and oddly immune to considering if his behavior is inappropriate. I wouldn't be surprised if he does land somewhere on the spectrum of Aspergers, especially since I'm sure one of my brothers does, and I see certain parallels in their behavior (except that my brother is more firmly on the side of not crusading against those he disagrees with). Ken is childish, he loves attention, and I don't think he feels hurt by any of this speculation. In fact, it makes him feel sort of superior. In the interest of helping Ken with his obvious problem, the best thing we can do is not reinforce it. (Which might be difficult, since he also derives reinforcement from a certain search engine starting with 'G') -Lardashe

Don't WIGO[edit]

Back in the TK days, a lot of people stopped WIGOing TK on the grounds that he wasn't for real, he was doing what he was doing largely to get attention, and it was the same old thing every time. I think we should take a similar approach to Conservative. The bestiality thing was worth a WIGO, mainly because Andy has been so resolute in ignoring them, but we don't need to go on about it. And most of his run-of-the-mill jabbering doesn't merit a mention, let alone a WIGO.

All the best WIGOs are about Andy, for my money.-- Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 09:24, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

The reason a lot of people stopped WIGOing TK was because the TK wigos were getting negative votes - they stopped being amusing/worthwhile and people got sick of them. The WIGO system is a self-correcting system. At the moment, Ken WIGOs still get voted up. I'm sure you're not suggesting a ban on Ken WIGOs, but it kinda seemed like it, so I thought I'd point this out. Let the system speak. ONE / TALK 10:01, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

You are absolutely right, ONE. I've been voting the Conservative WIGOs down for a while myself, and if others share the concerns above they should do the same. We'll see, I suppose.--

Kriss AkabusiAAAWOOOGAAAR!!1 12:56, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Most Ken WIGOs haven't been funny in a long time, because he's doing the atheism/homosexuality and... stuff to get attention. What's amusing about his "A professor told me that I could be a university administrator" bragfest is that he doesn't recognize it was almost certainly a backhanded compliment. Godspeed (talk) 15:18, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Talk about missing the point[edit]

Ken's latest obsession seems to be that Conservative Texas has less reported cases of bestiality than "Lieberal" Washington and Oregon. Well, I think I might just have found out the reason for that, and Ken seems to have missed it. The reason that Conservative Texas has so few reported cases of bestiality is that in Conservative Texas, bestiality ISN'T AGAINST THE LAW. --Longbow (talk) 13:29, 6 October 2011 (UTC)

Noticed over the past few weeks, I couldn't view CP sporadically for several hours on end, and just now it happened again. Using a proxy worked like a charm, each time. Weirdly enough, every time it happened, it was when a senior admin got into an embarrassing spat with yet another pesky thing called reality and fact.

I know it's been mentioned before, but that's the problem I've been having. I haven't been able to access CP really at all in the past few months for more than a minute or two a day. So far, there hasn't been a single day where I've been able to access it for very long (I only check every few days or so, though, but still).

Out of interest, what browser do you use? I think Chrome may have an issue with holding connections open even when the server won't respond, and then never letting you load that website again for the rest of the browsing session since you've already got more than X connections to that server open. If you don't use Chrome ignore this, but if you do then if it happens try hitting the site with a different browser. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:25, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

In which Andy presents a story in an unflattering light, but really it's not that bad.[edit]

I was going to blast Andyimg for mistaking state congressmen (who in California can only represent a district that they live in) for US representatives. However I was smart enough to google the bastards in the story before I went after Andy, and discovered that they are in fact US representatives. Initially I had thought that Jerrymandering was the problem, but after reading the story it would seem that the new district is the only one that has the constituency that they both depend on so neither one has the opportunity to simply run in the next district over. This is a redistricting story in which exactly what was supposed to happen happened, nice. I will mention also that I don't trust political divisions which give politicians super comfortable positions.

At first I thought they might actually be tasteful about it, but sure enough there's a politicized angle to the announcement in the form of touting Jobs as an "Adoption success story" which of course a really passive aggressive way of pushing the pro-life angle...they seriously can't not politicize a tragedy, can they?

One of the worst moments was when Andy put out there, with zero evidence, that Gary Coleman likely died a drunk because of "Hollywood values" and that if the media had publicized this baseless conjecture perhaps Ted Koppel's son would still be alive (no, not making that up; see for yourself). Worst part was Coleman was on kidney dialysis and likely died from a fall caused by a seizure. --Night Jaguar (talk) 05:26, 6 October 2011 (UTC)
Given that Steve Jobs was very pro-adoption (though I don't know if any of his kids were adopted) I think that this is fine. Yes it could be a slanted strike against abortion, but if it's a cause that the corpse supported in life I'm fine with them supporting it in CP death, even if there are CP connotations that the corpse woudn't have been cool with.

Ok, let's talk ketchup, Schlafly[edit]

Now Sir Ignorant is claiming that France is banning ketchup to curb obesityimg.

Ketchup is comprised of 5 main ingredients:

  • Crushed tomatoes (healthy)
  • tomato paste (healthy)
  • vinegar (healthy, lowers blood pressure)
  • salt (in moderation)
  • spices (such as a cinnamon stick etc)

Ketchup also has lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that is higher in concentration in ketchup than fresh tomatoes, because it is simmered and reduced. So in the end, it is actually healthy for you.

Because Kendoll's about all he has left. Karajou and JPratt are putting in fewer and fewer appearances, and Terry only turns up to spam. Ed might poke his head in once in a while to be a cockmuncher, but other than that it's only Andy and Kendoll. Andy himself barely does anything either, so Kendoll is the only person making CP look active. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:29, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

I think Khalid's moved into the "I don't give a crap anymore" zone. And Andy should ask himself why Ken is the only one around on a regular basis anymore. No, the answer isn't as simple as "Ken is to blame", but that is at least part of it.

Fuck voting, I'd rather comment. I whole heartily agree that for the being CP has stagnated. The only shits and giggles we get is from watching the dying gasp, Andy's fade into obscurity and KenCP being born. Perhaps you could make some weird TV sitcom entitled Andy&Ken. A Harvard law alumni shacks up with a weird shut-in and hilarity ensues. But Perfect Strangers this is not. Yeah, time we put this fucker to pasture. Aceace 10:58, 7 October 2011 (UTC)
Your sitcom would also entail Ken never meeting Andy in person but only communicating in silly accents from his room or perhaps always wearing some sort of fancy dress "disguise". But I agree that it's time to consign this foetid fiasco back to the pit of ordure from whence it came, or something. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 11:32, 7 October 2011 (UTC)

Also, if he's just looking at NBC, they're probably including shows like Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, which is all about sexually based crime (and yeah, I wouldn't be surprised if somehow bestiality worked its way into an episode or two in the past decade). So, yeah, if rape is sex out of wedlock, then it deals with a lot more of that than Detective Stabler's sex life with his wife.

French beasts[edit]

A French Orangina commercial is referred to in the new Homosexuality and bestialityimg article, in a section no doubt soon to be used again as the basis of the "Bestiality and France" article and possibly the "Orangina' article too. Here is the commercial on YouTube. It is definitely the weirdest fizzy orange drimk advert I've ever seen (and I speak as a Brit who remembers the "You've been Tango'd" commercials) but I doubt it led even a single French gay to attempt to shag a mountain lion. If it had, I think we would have all read about the horrific injuries he sustained.--Spud (talk) 06:28, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Although Ken wouldn't be the first to attempt to accuse furry fandom as being "bestial"; he may ignore it because the fandom is mostly American, and American in origin. If it was European in focus (or origin) it would be different (or at least if it came out of that evil bastion of all things liberal and atheist, Oregon). Its all about the atheists anyway, so he also have to find some evidence furry is full of atheists.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:58, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

I don't think I can add to the genius of Schlafly's parody, so here it is verbatim: "In Genesis 1:6-8, we are told that one of God's first creations was a firmament in the heavens. This likely refers to the creation of the luminiferous aether."img Game over, parodists.

The universe is expanding and the expansion is accelerating. What does this mean? Dark Energy?

All the CPers think that. They just disagree about what the TRUTH being covered up is. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:12, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

The bit about "this [something about a 'firmament'] likely refers to the creation of the luminiferous aether" stuff was in there before. Someone must have taken it out, and Andy is restoring his douchbaggery. BTW since when does "likely refers to" turn into a disproof of science? Also, he restored the "solenoid" crap that had been in and taken out. He doesn't seem to understand the significance of the word "solenoid" in that context, but thinks it's a cool word. Perhaps me means "magnet" or "region of space where there is a magnetic field". I'm so glad he didn't actually get a college degree in any kind of scientific or technical field.

I'm going for 1 and 2, as they are by no means mutually exclusive, and likely both true. Though I actually think some of what he writes he doesn't entirely believe but does it because he thinks it bothers us. For instance, I doubt he really thinks 5 cases of bestiality in Washington really has any statistical significance, but he sees it as a way to attack atheists. Also, the final choice is certainly true, as none of us do know for sure. DickTurpis (talk) 18:15, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Given that the overwhelming consensus seems to be that Conservative has mental problems (which I agree with) I would support all the posters who have recently said we should stop paying attention to him. In any case it's far less entertaining to watch someone who is a little disturbed bang on about bestiality/flying kitties than a person in full control of their faculties.

Is it time to put up the "mission accomplished" banner?[edit]

I was thinking of waiting until Popeye and JPratt realise that there's nothing at CP to be worth staying for before organising the victory party, but I think now's the time. The bestiality thing has been pretty much the last nail in the coffin of CP as any sort of serious enterprise. All the sysops have ceased to make any serious efforts to improve the place, and now all that's left is Andy trying desperately to stave off the continual peasant revolt.

I think we ought to have some sort of victory celebration and slap a permanent banner over WIGO: CP celebrating the death of this organ of idiocy. What do you reckon? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:20, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

I can't believe I'm saying this: After Rob left the place went radically downhill. I think we should wait with the party 'till Conservapedia simply disappears and Andy sets up a blog with his own little ramblings — including deleting every question asking what happend to CP. Then it's time to fish the last instances of stupiditiy from Google Cache and save them for all eternity, than we can grab the party hats and everybody except me can get drunk as hell. --ʤɱ secularist 19:37, 8 October 2011 (UTC)
Can people please stop announcing the end of CP. I have been here for 3 and a half years and people have been calling the end of CP for all of that time.

ok, two cowboys out riding the fences and they find a sheep with his head stuck in the fence. One says, "I'm not passing this up...", so he dismounts and proceeds to have intercourse with the sheep. When through, he turns and says to the other, "Hey, want some of this?"

A city boy goes to see his friend out in the country. Arriving at his mates farm he wanders through the paddocks and discovers his friend engaged in sexual act with a sheep.

Jimmyboy was supposed to chair the "refinement" but left due to the screwing of the Conservapedia shelter cats and dogs by Ken. Jimmyboy subsequently packed up and went to Ameriwiki, taking his "articles" with him (including the one on Elvis the Pelvis that once made it on the Main Page when Rob tried to get some non-Ken crap on the main page through a committee, which, of course, was abandoned). The only non-cabal members left seem to be SharonW (who surprisingly didn't leave after Jimmyboy), KhalidM (who Karaturd surprisingly hasn't banned yet for being a Muslim sock of LeonardS and Human), and KevinDavis (some guy who is probably on RW and is the only regular non-banned editor to not yet have a banhammer).--Colonel Sanders (talk) 22:16, 9 October 2011 (UTC)

Popeye just blocks people at random, that's what he does. It's not like he contributes anything else to Andy's blog.

Things that CP has ruined or the Godspeed Effect[edit]

Several of us have done this before but I thought an update is in order. These are things that we might read, see, hear or even think that then make us think about CP or one of its members in turn ruining the moment. In most cases, the word or subject matter would have been internally non-contentious before CP exposure. For many of us, particularly outside the US, CP was probably the first major exposure we had to YEC and other American "Culture War" subjects.

As a leading member of several atheist organizations I come here to plead with Conservative and the Conservapedia on bended knee. Please have some pity and stop your attacks on us. As you well know, Atheism and non-belief are a dying force in the world, is it necessary to pummel us with your constant attacks? Conservative's efforts to explain our connection to obesity, bestiality, and other forms of weakness and immorality have been a constant torment for us. You should see us grouped around the monitors in our San Francisco headquarters, every edit by Conservative is like the blow of a mallet to our collective heads. Every time Conservative posts another article you can hear a groan of desperation echo through the building. Where once I heard confident plans on how to increase abortions and send Christians to reeducation camps I hear only sobbing. We have said that Christopher Hitchens is dying of cancer, but the truth is that Conservative's attacks have so damaged his psyche that he is literally dying. The other day I walked into the office of a good friend of mine who is an atheist professor, he was curled up in a fetal ball in front of a laptop with Conservative's new article on atheism and obesity open. He has not slept or eaten for three days and his family is very frightened. It is like Conservative is diving into our hidden minds and pulling out our greatest fears and weaknesses. He than takes these weaknesses and plunges his rapier of logic with unpitying rectitude into the sinful flesh of our anti-Christian agenda. There is no defense against his genius, there is no way for us to counter the truth he speaks so clearly. You have won, please have some Christian pity on us and let those few of us that are left fade away in peace. DannyS 16:28, 11 October 2011 (EDT)

Your IP address shows Kansas, not San Francisco. By the way, my terms are unconditional surrender. I hope you enjoy church this Sunday. Conservative 18:12, 11 October 2011 (EDT)

I like how he doesn't seem to realize that lots of ISP's bounce their traffic all over the place and can put exit points from their intranets anywhere. Even with the outages I'm always surprised they're able to keep the site up and running as well as they do. Does Andy run the server? I've always wondered if they have some systems admin in reserve that nobody knows about. Infoseek (talk) 22:56, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
They use managed hosting. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 01:37, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Which is a smart move by the way. Anyone who says "I will do all the admin in my spare time" is either setting themselves up to make "sys admin for a web site" their main hobby activity or more likely ensuring the site will be unreliable and poorly maintained. I don't mean here stuff that's administrivia and could in theory be delegated, but stuff like "install security fix for MediaWiki" or "upgrade to newer version of database". If nobody is getting paid to do that, it is very likely not to get done, and that will end badly. 82.69.171.94 (talk) 09:42, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Heh, this reminds me of when Karajou got that email and couldn't see the parody for the trees. I'd like to think that even Ken, with all his mental problems, could see this was a blatent fake... though his use of checkuser does have me wondering. Perhaps we should begin a list of "collossal parody non-detections made by CP sysops". We could start it off with "Andy / All of CP" ONE / TALK 12:27, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Atheism, gender, marriage and suicide[edit]

Look, I understand that Conservative is a truly disturbed individual and it's not nice to keep poking fun at his writing, but I have to say that Atheism, gender, marriage and suicideimg is one of the all-time best Wiki section headings ever. Ever. It's got everything. Love. Sex. Religion. Violence and death. Even hints of depravity. A novel in four words, man. Phiwum (talk) 03:41, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

CP is basically Monty Python's spam skit now. "Do you have any articles without atheism in them?" "Well, there's "Atheism, bestiality, gender, and atheism, that's not got much." "Why doesn't she try Obesity, atheism, liberals, and homosexuality?" "THAT'S about atheism!" "Not as much as Atheism, bestiality, gender, and atheism." "I DON'T WANT TO READ ABOUT ATHEISM!" "Don't cause a fuss, I'll read your sections on atheism. I love it, I'm reading Atheism, atheism, atheism, atheism, atheism, atheism, baked beans and atheism!"

So much more could be done...[edit]

articles
pages
number of pages and articles containing the words "masturbation", "obesity", "bestiality", "sodomy" and "orgasm".
articles
pages
percentage of pages and articles..
  • some of the data is inaccurate because of the many deleted articles: e.g, there has been an article of cp:masturbation in the early days, but it was deleted because it was obscene (unlike clean, family-friendly articles on bestiality)
  • the number of articles containing the word bestiality seems to be rather small, but 10% of all revisions contained this word in Sep 2010. That doesn't mean that 10% of all comments used this word, but that 10% of all edits were made to pages covering this subject.
  • one can only speculate that bestiality will rise as well as obesity - but I think Andy will quietly delete any page which he as a lawyer thinks to be difficult: and XYZ is buggering sheep seems to be more libelous/slanderous than XYZ is fat!

You might as well. August is trying to bring a modicum of sense to CP and nobody wants that. If you were to unblock yourself, block August, and then re-block yourself, it would be the most unaccountable block ever made, and the CP sysops would wipe their brows in unison, thankful that they neither have to put up with August's shit, nor be the one to publically block him themselves and thus tacitly admit that they couldn't bear his unwaivering criticism. Do it. You have a gun, pull the trigger. ONE / TALK 15:16, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

Leave him the fuck alone. How he spends his time is his damned business, not yours. There's no reason to add to his frustration, which is precisely what your block would do. If the (legitimate) folks at CP are assholes, too bad for August. If your goddamned sock is an asshole too, then too bad for August and also so much the worse for your sense of decency.
Why the hell should we contribute to the annoyance of apparently decent folks like August? It isn't your role to determine when euthanasia is appropriate. It's up to him. Phiwum (talk) 19:10, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

You poor man. No real choices, eh? You had to unblock yourself and be an asshole, because, goddammit, that's your job. Okay then. Phiwum (talk) 19:40, 12 October 2011 (UTC)
Actually, block rights over there are only for dealing with vandals. The kind of disciplinary blocking that you pulled is reserved for trusted sysops, not junior lickspittles like yourself. B♭maj7 (talk) Member of the Kara Duhe fan club since 2010 19:41, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

──────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────── (EC, to Mikalosa) Yeah, you're a swell guy. He was going to die, so I killed him first. I'm real impressed with your sense of compassion.

Honestly, commenting on what assholes there are at CP is one thing. Showing that you can beat them to the punch is quite another. As far as I'm concerned, all socks are crossing a line that I don't care to cross, but it's especially heinous when you not only contribute to the stupidity of CP, but you contribute to the senseless hostility as well. If you don't see the difference, I guess I don't know what to say.

Wouldn't you like to ask August whether he appreciates your kindness in putting a metaphorical bullet in his head? You think he'd notice your well-developed sense of compassion?Phiwum (talk) 19:32, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

AugustO should join DeniseM in leaving the project. His? questions aren't as good anyway.... Nil Einne (talk) 15:49, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

I see that Mikalosa has reduced the block to August to one day (and he did so some time ago), so I suppose I'll stop beating up on him. No sense carrying this argument on. Phiwum (talk) 19:48, 12 October 2011 (UTC)

So, according to AugustO's block log, Mikalosa is only as bad as Andy, not as Ed Poor, Douglas and Karajou - which means that he is still an idiot. larronsicut fur in nocte

Somehow, Ed is consistent: From "How long are we going to tolerate TK?" (part 2):860/d0f1c0a9e00ee7daa8ff39c21ca65336.html

When I taught Sunday School, if I saw two children abusing each other, I rarely punished both. One "time-out" per incident is enough to get the message across: we are here to do class work, not to hurt each other. Sometimes I'd deliberately choose the "less troublesome" of the pair. I don't believe we have to get to the bottom of it; it doesn't matter who started it. I told the kids, if someone in class is hurting you, don't retaliate. Come to me if you need help.

Now I train Sunday School teachers . . .

The dangerous stirrings of thoughts[edit]

Does anyone worry for Uncle Ed here? Some of his actions show the dangerous stirrings of thoughts. If he ever actually sits down to think about having his name be on a project with content like Ken's what will happen to him? Will he become RobSmith 2.0? If he ever stopped denying the ideological censorship that surrounds the project I can't help but think that he would do something about it, which would mean a defrocking for sure. --Opcn (talk) 02:55, 13 October 2011 (UTC)

Ed will never risk his power. He's testing the waters. Minor tweaks and corrections, a miniscule block... he's seeing how the tribe reacts. He might gain confidence and ramp it up slowly but the very moment he sees he might be falling out of favour with Il Duce (i.e. getting the silent treatment while engaging with Ken) he'll pull back. ONE / TALK 08:40, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
No chance of it happening. Just like the other sysops, it's more important for Ed to suck up to Andy than to ensure the project runs as it should. Then again, I also think that Ed is on a secret mission from the Moonies to turn CP into a steaming heap of crap (mission accomplished?), thus enabling Moonie-o-pedia to swoop in and take over Andy's little project. In a way, Ed is the conservative-fundie equivalent of David Icke - where you are so godawfully awful, that the only reason for your existence is to discredit anybody else even remotely linked to the crap you are involved in. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 09:15, 13 October 2011 (UTC)
