Fucking spellcheckers. How do they work?[edit]

Knowing how Andy (and Ken) like to disparage other editors over spelling mistakes and tell them to use Firefox, I like how it took one of CP's least literate sysops to correct Andy's misspelling of heroesimg. Also, after Ken berated someone on the QE talk page about their spelling he still managed to come up with diagnosisesimg on his very next edit. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 11:54, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Integrity has never really been their strong point... ONE / TALK 12:29, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
I wonder if Andy knows that Firefox mocks the Bible (specifically The Book of The Revelations of St. John the Divine). CS Miller (talk) 13:01, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
IIRC pointing out Andy's bad grammar/spelling used to be a blockable offense, although that was probably just TK trolling his nipples off. --PsyGremlinZungumza! 13:16, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

The Real Problem With Media Today? The Audience [edit]

Interesting article at Huffington Post. Conseravapedia gets an honorific mention:

Even Fox News isn't a safe enough haven for some lunatics on the right side of the aisle. One "Christian" felt so threatened by Wikipedia's arrangement of fact that he had to develop his own Conservapedia. When he eventually realized that the Bible didn't agree with him any more than science, history or the arts, he decided to re-write that, too. I imagine this man does a lot of angry crying. I also imagine that somewhere a teacher is reading a paper that cites a Conservapedia article, sighing and thinking it's just not worth the fight with the parents.

Sad, but true. larronsicut fur in nocte 15:30, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

I sincerely hope that outside of Andy's poor, abused home-scholars, who probably don't know better, nobody is citing CP as a source. Unless it's for articles such as this one. Methinks that quote can be put to good use. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 15:40, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Time until Andy goes apoplectic: 2 hours. Time until he starts denying the existence of that site: 2.02 hours. Time until he starts crying: 2.03 hours. Time until he stops crying: Uncertain. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 17:45, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Starts crying? that would imply he has stopped crying since his political career crashed and burned in 92 along with $84 thousand of his inheritance and forever lost the love of his dear sweet mother. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 21:10, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
I took the liberty of bolding the best line in that quote. The final line of the article is pretty poignant: "After all, if you're convinced the facts are working for the 'other team,' the other team is reality." -- Seth Peck (talk) 18:08, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Andy is busy enough with his SOPA crusade that he can safely ignore an article from a source in his liberal claptrap pile. It's hilarious, he's trying to pin the entire damn mess on Harry Reid and Hollywood, even though the House bill was introduced by a Republican. He didn't even want to mention the guys damn name, Lamar Smith R-TX, unless he could insert another line about "liberal deceit" in how Harry Reid named the bill.Tesformes (talk) 19:43, 18 January 2012b (UTC)
Its a primal reaction of one such as Andy who believes that the bill is indeed a threat, yet can do nothing but impotently scream that it was the fault of those he resents, and final validation of the fact that he REALLY believes his own propaganda. If the bill can theoretically be used unduly to remove dissenting content from the internet by government, in andy's mind it is a conspiracy directed at both conservapedia, and him personally as he somehow constitutes one of the left wing's most feared and influential enemies, in a true synthesis of persecution complex, superiority complex, and all of his bitter, bitter resentment.

Ed at WP[edit]

"People: Stop making shitty stubs Ed's response? "The lifeblood of wikipedia is stubs!" --il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 22:54, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

They really ought to ban him. He's incorrigible. This is exactly why he won the Conservapedia's Biggest Idiot Emeritus award, he really doesn't understand how much work he makes for everyone else. At least in the CP ghetto nobody cares when he fucks the place up. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:11, 16 January 2012 (UTC)
Uncle Ed's usual mechanism to cope with such hard times is to share his misery with the editors at Conservapedia: we can expect quite a few amusing blocks and requests for writing-plans in near future, while Ed tries to bully up his mood...larronsicut fur in nocte 23:01, 16 January 2012 (UTC)

I remember when that happened, though it was long before I knew who Ed was. As I recall about half a dozen people on some talk page were bitching about the deletion process at WP, so Ed decided to Be Bold and delete it, after which he took his usual idiot grin strategy, basically saying that he found a page that had widespread disapproval and decided there was a consensus to get rid of it, so he did. How could anyone blame him for that? Every few years he gets re-nominated for adminship over there, which is always amusing to watch. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 13:20, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Among the many(!) "Dear Ed, your shit is gonna get nuked" notifications, I found thisimg article, which really showcases the conflict between Ed "make article by throwing in random quotes about random subject and wait for others to do all the heavy lifting" Poor and the rest of Wikipedia. *le sigh* --Sid (talk) 14:01, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
I would love to know what proportion of Ed's stubs have been deleted over at wikipedia, and how that proportion has changed over time. *looks pointedly at larron, with puppy eyes* ONE / TALK 14:23, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
sorry, I can't help: once a page is deleted at WP, I have no possibility to see the history - and especially not who made the first edit, i.e., who created the article. larronsicut fur in nocte 15:48, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
That's a damn shame. What about scouring Ed's talk page (and its archives) for article deletion notices? Or is that too complicated for a script to do? ONE / TALK 16:21, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Assuming he has a WP account, we could try to get larron to be a WP sysop. That would do it. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 16:23, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Here's the list of Ed's deleted articles on Wikipedia, sorted by creation date and including edit summaries. It includes about a hundred redirects left over from pagemoves, so you'll want to exclude those if you're doing any statistical analysis. --173.254.192.35 (talk) 06:27, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Didn't this[[1]] stupid crap get deleted from Wikipedia? Now its in a new home, safe in the bowels of Andy's bowels. I guess that's one more difference between CP and WP: CP is perfectly ok with being a dumping ground for Ed's shit.Tesformes (talk) 18:38, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Ed's WTFery[edit]

From BoN's list of EdStubs I see the following at #389:

2007-08-09T03:33:38Z Kyoto Treat -- ←Created page with 'The Kyoto Treat is a small Philippino sugary pasta first invented in Kyoto, Philippines way back in AD 734. The treat was first introduced to Europe by Muslim trade...'

Is this an example of Ed making joke articles (Kyoto Treat rather than Kyoto Treaty) at WP? Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 11:52, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

CP and RW are in general agreement on a major political issue.img (Ken isn't wild about SOPA, either.) MDB (talk) 15:46, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Even Jpratt seems to be against it,img although that's probably because of his "Ug! Obama Bad! Me have banana now!" mentality (with apologies to monkeys everywhere) --PsyGremlinKhuluma! 15:58, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm honestly surprised the rabid right are railing against it. I'd have thought they'd lap it up with fevered excitement. Even if they haven't read the bill and know nothing about what it does, they'd at least have heard that it is being opposed by such bastions of Liberalism as Liberal google, Liberal wikipedia and Liberal facebook. If it's pissing off liberals, that makes it Wholly Good & Conservative in their minds. So what's up? (Although it#s worth noting that Andy doesn't seem to have expressed opinion yet.... CP waits with bated breath for Dear Leader to speak) ONE / TALK 16:18, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Also, I can't wait for SOPA and PIPA to be tarred as liberal legislature by CP. ONE / TALK 16:20, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
Actually, this is the second time in a month that CP and RW have agreed. Karajou recently posted on MPR about the indefinite detention clause in the DOD bill. Of course, he put the blame squarely in liberals. Turpis 3:16 (talk) 16:22, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
I really thought they'd love the idea of it. They'd be able to shut down RW without much effort. -Lardashe
You're not giving them enough credit for being insane. The government will attack CP because of the liberal deceit they expose. Obama is champing at the bit, just waiting to pull the plug on sites who spurn the lamescreed media and choose cover the real issues. Andy, JPatt and Terry should all bask in this healthy paranoia. Occasionaluse (talk) 17:25, 17 January 2012 (UTC)
I think you are mixing conservatives with Conservapedia. CP is not an accurate representation of conservative thought, it's instead just some bizarre stick shooting off of the religious extremist branch.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:30, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Are you people kidding me? Of course they are against it — who's the goddamn President? Obama can't do anything right! The dude could give every CP admin a medal of honor for their "brave" fighting against liberals and they'd whine about the medal being to expensive. Fuck, Obama could commit suicide with a gun from the Secret Service and they'd be pissed that the bullet would be government funded! Jesus, for crying out loud… These people do not have ideals, they have loyalties. That's what CP is all about. --ʤɱ digital native 18:11, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

You know, now that Obama's come out against it, it'll be interesting to see if they flip flop. It would also be interesting to know if Kenny only opposes it because it might impede his access to unamusing pictures of dogs and matadors for his essays. --Veni Vidi.png Feci.png 18:53, 17 January 2012 (UTC)

Good news, Mr. Launchbooty say's his site "will join the blackout". So 7 or 8 people will need to go elsewhere for their daily dose of birtherism. Also, SOPA is all Obama's fault. Not the fault of the Republican controlled house it came from.--Thunderstruck (talk) 01:32, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
How is it obama's fault when 1) he is against it, and 2) the bill was proposed (in both houses) by republicans and the repblicans are a majority vote??????Pink mowse.pngGodotDear god, fucking grow up 01:34, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

I will give Terry credit, he actually followed through on his pronouncement and joined the protest, good for him (+1 for Terry). However in true Conservapedia fashion, he turned the whole SOPA issue into a "blame Obama" game; he just can't seem to take the blinders off, even for this one time we would likely back his stand 100%, so -1 for Terry and he is back to being a zero. Also I see you are going with Launchbooty; that name makes me snicker every time I read it.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:37, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Part of me now kinda hopes that SOPA does pass and Obama makes a point to specifically and publicly use the powers SOPA grants to shut down Conservapedia, just so I can see if I have the force-like ability to sense the amazing mix of rage, vindication and egotism that'd come from the CP sysops from afar. X Stickman (talk) 02:11, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Better yet, I hope it reaches his desk, and Obama publicly VETOS it. Then Conservapedia would be forced to swollow their pride and acknowledge Obama did good. That would cause them to be physically ill.--Thunderstruck (talk) 02:17, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Obama vetoing SOPA only proves he is ANTI-business and wants to drive capitalism INTO THE GROUND--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 02:33, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Mikalos is right; they won't acknowledge Obama did the right thing, they'll just flip-flop their stance.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:48, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Yes, I guess it's hard to acknowledge that Obama did something right, when your definition of wrong is "what Obama and other liberals do". --Maquissar (talk) 18:54, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Poor Terry, just after he announced that his site was joining the protests, Andy criticizes Wikipedia for punishing its users by darkening its pages.--Tlaloc (talk) 06:04, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
What a bizzare MPR entry. I've been sitting here trying to comment. I... I just don't know where to begin. ONE / TALK 09:21, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

What planet is Andy on?[edit]

When Wikipedia's liberal heroes Hollywood, Harry Reid and Barack Obama support controlling the internet with SOPA, does Wikipedia criticize them? No, instead Wikipedia punishes internet users by darkening its pages.

I know Andypants just has to twist everything to suit his bizarre worldview, but seeing WP's blanking of its pages as support for Obama and SOPA takes his crazy to whole new levels. --PsyGremlinSermā! 10:59, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

This is kind of fun. Andy starts out angry and then we get to watch him figure out why. Right now he doesn't understand the difference between SOPA and PIPA. It's going to be fun to watch him dance around the fact that the Obama administration isn't exactly supportive of this legislation (another thing I don't think Andy has discovered yet). Occasionaluse (talk) 15:13, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
This may be Irrelevant but did anyone else notice him personalize "Hollywood" as a singular "liberal hero"? does he really, honestly envisage any loose institution as being sentient and full of malice for conservatism as defined and personalized by him and conservapedia (which would also explain his crowing over apparently falling tv viewings which he desperately insists means people are flocking to his blog)? is this another sign of his growing bugfuckery insane mental state? Seriously he is becoming disturbingly like the time cube guy with every passing day Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 21:34, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

Andy comes out in favour of piracy[edit]

Damn Hollywood and those record labels!img Clearly Andy is a big fan of The Pirate Bay and Soulseek. --PsyGremlinSiarad! 15:20, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

To be fair to him (argh), he has always claimed that hollywood and the media in general is liberal as hell. SOPA (and other such things) is being pushed hugely by media organisations like the RIAA and MPAA and such, so it's fairly consistent for him to claim both SOPA is liberal and bad and the organisations pushing it are. The idea itself is very conservative (they are in effect trying to do the... damn it I wanted to link to wikipedia but I forgot. Remember that thing where there was a court case about Betamax? With some media companies claiming it would destroy cinema and such? This new crusade against piracy is basically that, again, because they want their current business models to reign supreme and not have to bother doing new stuff) in a technical "keep shit how it is" sense, but whether it's conservative or liberal in a political sense I'm not sure. I'd argue since the primary goal behind it is to protect corporate interests it's fairly conservative but I'm terrible at categorising shit like this. X Stickman (talk) 15:39, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Andy is a Harvard educated lawyer... sorry, his mummy bought him a law degree from Havard. If he's too stupid (or lazy) to actually understand what the bill is about, but rather hang it on his usual "liberals bad" meme, Harvard should ask for their degree back. Now wonder a couple of state SCs have facepalmed at him. --PsyGremlinPraat! 15:50, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
MPAA and RIAA are people too, and they're job creators at that. There's nothing liberal about what they're doing by protecting their intellectual property. What Andy disagrees with here, I can't imagine...but I'm guessing it's "Obama". Occasionaluse (talk) 16:27, 18 January 2012 (UTC)

It is not the "Republicanic Party," or the "Libertarianic Party". No, because "Republican" and "Libertarian" are already adjectives, you moronical morons. Cantabrigian (talk) 15:57, 18 January 2012 (UTC)
Off sopa a bit but "Propper nouns are not turned into adjectives by adding an 'ic' - RepublicanIC" or Libertarianic (no comment that neither republican nor libertarian are techinically nouns...).

He did say "proper nouns", so Magellanic and perhaps Hispanic count, but not the others. In any case, Andy seems to think that the term "Democrat" came first and "Democrat(ic) party" is derived from it.

My guess? "Release the Data" combined with some shoehorned argument about how such a life form still required a creator or something about guided evolution.

The fact that it looks like the camera is stationary (rather than him holding it) because he keeps stepping away from it and moving around without the camera moving makes it weirder, somehow, because the camera's so poorly placed. X Stickman (talk) 13:15, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
I think it's all the liplicking, eyes darting back and forth, and constant shifting/rocking side to side.

By my understanding an ad-hom is an attempt to discredit someone's claim with an irrelevant fact (or non-fact, as the case may be) about the person.

Putting aside all the personal insults and the like, the reason his video is so poorly received is because it is absolute terrible quality. You can barely make out what he says as the background noise simply overwhelms. The lighting is terrible and because of that, the way his shadow is cast over his face by looking down at the camera gives him a gaunt and creepy look. On top of all of this, the video appears to be pointless, a video just saying where he visited for the day and that's it? Why would anyone care?

Um...the ship's course is determined by the captain, or the first mate when the captain is unavailable, not by the cruise line's head office; it is then verified by the navigator, directed by the helmsman, and guided by millions of dollars worth of GPS equipment...maybe it's because they didn't account for relativity? Or maybe the captain was at dinner meeting with honored guests, as they often do during cruises, and someone at the helm messed up?

I think it's perfectly fine to ask why the ship was off course. While the captain does indeed determine the course, the course was already established both by precedent and within boundaries dictated by the safety of charted waters. As well as being responsible for the evacuation of passengers - a responsibility he appears to have deemed less important than his own safety - he was also responsible for the ship's course and its deviation from it. As this deviation led to the ship striking a rock and its eventual capsize, it is perfectly reasonable to ask why it happened. Ajkgordon (talk) 10:07, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Is anyone disputing that? At the moment the evidence points to it being some careless act of bravado by the captain followed by panic. The point here is why is this 'breaking news' at CP and what is the point of asking that question in the edit summary. It's almost as if Ed is suggesting that it's part of a liberal, global warming conspiracy. Steven Kavanagh (talk) 11:02, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

The captain is an Eyetalian, therefore a liberal. A true conservative would never have done that. --PsyGremlinПоговорите! 11:30, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
"Cazzo" means "dick" in the same way that "fuck" means "have sex with" - it's very versatile, and can be used for phrases like "fuck off" and "don't give a fuck", even though they don't make sense literally. So this particular use of Cazzo could easily be interpreted as "get the fuck back on the ship", which some media outlets have been using, but the grammar suggests to me something like "get back on the ship, dickhead" or "get back on the ship, for fucksake". ONE / TALK 12:46, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Swearing and profanity vary by culture and time. As a kid I never heard 'fuck', 'cunt' or 'shit' and using 'bloody', 'damn' or 'hell' could get you a clip round the ear.

(EC) Seems to me that this suspicion of latent racism says more about you than it says about CP or any other reports of the accident that I've read or heard. An accident occurred. It is a newsworthy and interesting story. The captain happens to be Italian. I sure as heck don't see why this fact suggests hidden stereotypes are a motivation or significant factor in this story. (Maybe I'm naive, but the nationality of the captain really was an insignificant factor in the story. I just don't see it.)

Bollocks it does. And I wasn't referring to CP (although I could have made that clearer). I'm talking more about your stereotypical Daily Mail/Telegraph reading Little Englander or the American equivalent and their stereotypes of Italians and other southern Europeans being cowards. Jeez, lighten up. Ajkgordon (talk) 14:10, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
I simply don't see any indication of racism in the treatments of the story I've read or heard. I'm no mindreader, so I can't speculate on how readers react to it, unless the reaction is overt. I'm also very reluctant to claim someone is a closet racist unless the evidence is fairly clear. In fact, doing so in this case is a pretty clear form of distasteful stereotyping in my humble opinion. Phiwum (talk) 15:58, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
OK, but I think you're being a little naive. A few quick links for you describing the very common prejudice. From the less than excitable Independent, the sober Guardian, and finally from the aforementioned Daily Mail. None claim they agree that the stereotypes are true; but they admit that they are common. And that was simply ten seconds on Google. Pointing out ill-concealed stereotyping is not stereotyping itself. That is where you seem confused. Ajkgordon (talk) 17:32, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
I haven't seen any headlines like those in U.S. media, but perhaps that has to do with the media I choose. Phiwum (talk) 18:28, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Then I suggest you read a little more widely before making the accusations above. Ajkgordon (talk) 18:53, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
You're blowing this out of proportion. The original mention of the captain's nationality was as a reason why CP might be linking the story on MPR. From what I read of the news, they are attacking the captain for his actions, not his nationality. Although, there does seem to be a case for not having a captain from a Mediterranean country on board, if your ship is sinking. "When I give the order abandon ship, it doesn't matter what time I leave. Abandon is for everybody. If some people want to stay, they can stay." --PsyGremlinPrata! 16:06, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
As someone who spends a good deal of time doing lifeboat drills, offshore survival courses and helicopter underwater escape training, the captain, if able, is the last one to depart in an abandonment. In this case there seems to have been a serious dereliction in not getting people to lifeboat stations much earlier. The priority is always to get the most vulnerable and least-trained off first, those with experience and know-how are the last to leave.

I wonder if Andy might be losing interest in hard-core, lunatic-fringe, freak-show conservative politics? He hasn't contributed a huge amount to CP lately. Just looking at the last 500 edits, very few are by him and almost all of those are about SOPA/PIPA, on which subject he agrees with his old mate Barry O'Barmy. Could Andy possibly be becoming a liberal or at least a moderate? Just a thought. The Real James Brown (talk) 17:40, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Andy being a liberal would mean the universe would die--il'Dictator Mikal (talk) 17:41, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
"Just a thought." A remarkably stupid one. P-Foster Talk "a cheetos-eating, Mountain-Dew drinking vlogger living in someone's basement." 17:42, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
Andy's not a conservative; Andy's an anti-liberal. He looks at what liberals believe and selects the opposite position. If Obama endorsed puppy dogs today, Andy would immediately go out and buy a cat. MDB (talk) 17:45, 20 January 2012 (UTC)
It works the other way, too. If Andy gets an opinion on something, he automatically assumes liberals are against it, like with the recent SOPA thing. He assumes Obama is secretly supportive of SOPA even though Obama directly came out and said he was against it, and assumes anyone who is actually against (like Lamar Smith) is secretly a liberal. He lives in a fantasy world where Liberals have a set of beliefs and Conservatives have another, directly opposed, set of beliefs and the two groups never overlap in their positions.

ANECDOTE ALERT. I worked in Dallas for 3 months back in the late 70's, during that time the local paper printed a list of all the homicides in the Dallas area, ~850 of them. That was way more than all the murders in the UK. Many of them occurred because of quite trivial things, like noisy stereo or cutting in front of someone on the freeway, So yes, let's just arm everyone so that they can eliminate all those who are annoying in some way. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 20:23, 20 January 2012 (UTC)

Yes, but not by a factor of four (850 to 166, or whatever the greater Dallas figure is). Evidently, statewide, the number of homocides have fallen to about half the 1979 figures. (Because population has increased, the rate has decreased somewhat more.) Phiwum (talk) 02:07, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
(EC) In 1979, the entire state of Texas had 2235 homocides. It's possible, I guess, that 850 of those were in the Dallas area. (Your post wasn't clear, but I assume the 850 figure was for the whole year and not the three months you were there.)Phiwum (talk) 02:01, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Sarah, I don't think your argument about the relationship between homophobia and sexual identity is going to go very far without harder evidence than your own experience and anecdote. moreover, you're begging the question that there are such things as solid, unquestionable "gay" and "straight" identities that everybody subscribes to, which doesn't really account for people who don't see themselves fitting into any one box. P-Foster Talk "a cheetos-eating, Mountain-Dew drinking vlogger living in someone's basement." 02:10, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
I don't think everyone who is homophobic is necessarily 100% gay, a Kinsey 6. But I doubt that devoted homophobes are Kinsey 0's either. Whether they are completely gay or just significantly bisexual, I'm sure they are higher up the Kinsey scale than the average non-homophobe is. If they have homophobic views but don't think much about it, maybe not, but when they devote so much of their time and energies to homophobia, I'm sure they have at least some same-sex attraction. Sarah Parker (talk) 02:20, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Well shit a Kinsey zero is really really rare. To say that the mean Kinsey score of homophobes is higher than the mean Kinsey score of non-homophobes is one thing, but what you are arguing when you say that all homophobia comes from closeted gayness is that there aren't any Kinsey 1's, 2's and 3's who are homophobic. --Opcn (with regards to regarding my regardliness) 02:26, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Um....when you say "a Kinsey zero is really really rare"...do you mean a Kinsey zero homophobe? Because otherwise I might take issue with that assertion. -- Seth Peck (talk) 17:26, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
It's not just closeted gays who can be homophobic, closeted bisexuals too, who adopt homophobia in trying to deal with their bisexual feelings they don't want to acknowledge. I'm not saying there are no homophobes who are Kinsey 1s, I'm saying that they are homophobes because they can't be honest with themselves about the fact they have same-sex feelings, even if their own feelings are predominantly heterosexual. And if they learnt to accept their own same-sex feelings as valid, they'd stop being homophobic. Sarah Parker (talk) 02:32, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Sounds like wishful thinking, not a serious hypothesis. Look, it's not hard to imagine that, when a religious text tells you that God says homosexuality is bad, you come to believe that it is bad, worthy of hatred even. I don't see why we should pretend that all such hatred is caused by the anguish of hypocrisy. Phiwum (talk) 02:39, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
The same religious text tells them that eating pork or shellfish or a rare steak or a cheeseburger, or wearing clothing made from mixed fabrics, or working on Saturday, is a grave sin, yet they don't get so flustered about any of those sins - hey, I betcha they practice them even. Their homophobia cannot be explained by a religious text. The reality is, it doesn't matter what some ancient text says, because everyone starts out by deciding what they believe, then they twist and selectively quote their chosen religious text until it says what they want it to say. The belief/feeling comes first, the text comes second - you have it all back to front. Sarah Parker (talk) 12:35, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

(ECx3)If you go by the Kinsey scale everyone is either bisexual or a liar. If that is the case then saying that homophobes are gay and bisexual is pretty meaningless. If you go by the common sense definition where 90% of the populace is straight, and more than 10% of the population is homophobic, then you start to run out of gay people to have hate themselves. The line that "they don't hate you they hate themselves" is really an outgrowth of the self esteem movement more than a probing neurological examination of hatred. Lots of things entered the common knowledge pool in the 70's through the modern day because they would be convenient rather than because they are always true.

Sarah, I assure you, there is no evidence that homophobes are gay. some certainly are, but an equal number are just pure straights who hate gays the way whites hated blacks or currently hate "mexicans" and a-rabs.

Judgement of the morality of actions is something that Christans are supposed to do (judgement is required to distinguish virtue from vice, for instance). To apply this distinction, a person's sexual inclination is not inherently anyone else's business, but sexual practices are fair game for criticism. Likewise, Conservative's treatment of others is fine to criticize, but making proclamations of the state of his soul is presumptuous. So while a reasonable observer can conclude that Conservative is an unrepentant asshole, good Christians are still supposed to be nice to him. 184.61.193.172 (talk) 01:52, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

Oh? Let's Check Matthew 7, the source of the "judge not" bit. Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you. Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye. So Christians should not be hypocritical in judgement. That's easy enough with specific actions supposed to be sinful, but most Christians believe that everyone is sinful and worthy of condemnation on their own merits (yay Jesus, etc.). So a Christian shouldn't be saying that someone else is a bad person and therefore should be condemned, since the accuser is imperfect as well. Now let's look at the next verse: Do not give dogs what is sacred; do not throw your pearls to pigs. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you to pieces. So while Christians aren't supposed to go around condemning people there are practical difficulties to be had when dealing with people who regularly do bad things. Kind of fits with what Paul was saying there about how keeping assholes around could mess up the fledgling Christian community in Corinth, doesn't it? 184.61.193.172 (talk) 09:22, 22 January 2012 (UTC) P.S.

Thoughts[edit]

You know, I have a feeling that Ken is acting like such a prize douche purely because he knows how we'll react, and in what passes for his mind, this counts as a win. The fact that he's doing to play the audience makes him an even more pathetic individual, than if he was writing his crap out of any form of belief - we already know he doesn't have the brainpower to form original thoughts and therefore beliefs.

Now, I know we've suggested this before, but can we for once and for all, just ignore this sad, sick, little excuse for a human. Maybe then he'll go away... or at least in search of another audience. --PsyGremlin講話 07:59, 22 January 2012 (UTC)

He still gets fed by the occasional passerby. Since I doubt RW is responsible for all CP's newbies yet, he'll probably stay as he is. (I do agree about us, though. I've ignored Ken wigos for a long, long time now...) 99.50.96.218 (talk) 08:46, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
Of more interest is Andy's toleration of Ken's in(s)anity. Scream!! (talk) 09:32, 22 January 2012 (UTC)
I'm not sure making any sort of formalized attempt to ignore Ken would have that much of an effect. Let's pretend and say this site instantly started to ignore him. He'd just up his brand of crazy (I know, seems impossible) until he shook one of our ranks loose, and forced a response. And we all know somebody would eventually rise to his taunts. Which he would then interpret as a victory. No, I think we should let individual RW editors mock or ignore him as they see fit.
I would hope that many RW contributors will follow a similar path as my own. User:Conservative is like finding a moist lump of matter under poor lighting conditions. At first you're like "What is that?". Then you progress on to "I think I know what that is, but...". Then you eventually reach the conclusion of: "You know what?

Ok, let's spell out what has been accomplished using Toynbee's book:

Thus a risk of catastrophe (being desysoped) proves to be inherent in the use of the faculty of mimesis, which is the vehicle of mechanization on the medium of Human Nature; and it is evident that this inherent risk will be greater in degree when the faculty of mimesis is called into play in a society which is in dynamic movement (Rationalwiki) than when the same faculty is given rein in a society which is in a state of rest (Conservapedia). The weakness of mimesis lies in its being a mechanical response to a suggestion from some alien source (liberals), so that the action that is performed through mimesis is ex hypothesi, an action that would never have been performed by its performer upon his own initiative (close-minded liberals). Thus all action that proceeds from mimesis is essentially precarious because it is not self-determined (leading from behind); and the best practical safeguard against the danger of its breaking down is for the exercise of the faculty of mimesis to become crystallized in the form of habit or custom—as it actually is in primitive societies in the Yin-state (progressive thinking), which is the only stage of their history in which we know them. In 'the cake custom' the double-edged blade of mimesis is comfortably padded. But the breaking of 'the cake of custom' is of the essence of the change through which the state of the rest that is the last phase in the history of a primitive society gives place to the fresh dynamic movement (entrepreneurship) that we call a civilization. The mimesis which has been directed towards the older generation of the living members of the society, as incarnations of an accumulated social heritage (conservativism, as an ideology), is now reoriented towards creative personalities (RobS, et al) whose eyes have seen on the horizon a further goal of human endeavours (the Conservapedia reform movement), and whose wills have become bent upon leading their fellows with them (Conservapedia editors) towards this promised land. In this new movement (Sysop accountability) the edged tool of mimesis is not discarded, but is employed with enhanced effect now that the breaking of the cake of custom (Conservapedia's established ways) has laid its cutting edges bare. This baring of the blade means the removal of a safeguard (TK, et al); and the necessity of using the tool of mimesis without the protection of a customary régime—a necessity which is the price of growth—condemns a growing civilization to live dangerously. More than that, the danger is perpetually imminent, since the condition which is required for the maintenance of the Promethean élan of growth is a condition of unstable equilibrium (open editing in Conservapedia) in which 'the cake of custom' is never allowed to set hard before it is broken up again (blocking reform, etc). The tour de force of the exploit of Civilization lies in this necessity of resorting to mimesis without a possibility of taking precautions at any stage. In this hazardous pursuit of the goal of human endeavours there can never be such a thing as a provisional insurance against the perils which mimesis entails. There can only be an ultimate and radical solution of the problem through the complete elimination of mimesis in a society which has transformed itself into a communion of saints; and this consummation, which is nothing less than the attainment of the goal, has never been even distantly approached by any known civilization hitherto.

[EC] While I'm not sure what it has to do with economic policy, I like football enough I guess. By no means a huge fan. I'm rooting for the Giants, not so much because I'm from New York, but because my one friend who is a big football fan likes them, so I sort of empathize with him.

Rob, what the fuck is wrong with you? Has your argument really devolved to the level of American Football is better than EVERYTHING!!? Different sports are.... you, know, different. Each one has different aspects to it and different appeals. You know, England ex-captain - the one who won the World Cup a few years ago - is a huge gridiron fan. Nearly played it.

Rob, I've seen American football matches in Wembley as well. The thing is that I prefer rugby, not just because it's hardwired into all Welsh DNA, but also because when played at its best it has stuff called tactics and physicality and intelligence.

Even the mental midgets at Fox & Friends haven't made such an accusation, and the whole "I don't know anything about this myself, but I imagine if CNN got hold of Gingrich's divorce records it's because they hired thugs to break into the courthouse and steal them!" is their bread and butter.

yawn. 1. Germany is traditionally half Catholic, half Protestant. 2. Ken is saying nothing about Christianity overall, only about Protestantism which is most widely spread in nations with welfare states (within Europe). 3. The effects of such a welfare state should be visible in unemployment rates if high taxes (which acompany welfare states) actually cause high unemployment. In Germany they doesn't, neither do they in Sweden, Norway, the Netherlands, Finland nor Iceland (not sure about the UK, though). All "Protestant countries" and today highly secular nations. 4. What Ken actually means is the Prussian heritage played up as the "Deutschtum", that is of course influenced by Protestantism (you know they one of the "liberal Church" kind, as evangelism is and always has been quite minor here). It's a mixture of punctuality, hard work and not speaking up when people tell you to do something (ended well). 5. Underachiever: I come from a working family with low education, no money and not living in a rich area (tourist boom was over shortly after I was born) — today I'm a college student after working my way up thourgh the German education system mainly by my own. I'm the first one in my fathers family to ever do that, and the third one in my mothers family to go to a university, my "Christian" — you know, the liberal kind — uncle holds a math and sports degree and is principal of a school, my aunt holds a doctor degree in biochemistry and teaches at a specialized school. --ʤɱ socialist 00:55, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
On the UK.... The UK is predominately Anglican (at least culturally) rather than protestant. But it's also largely secular. We also have a highly developed welfare state much like the countries you listed above. The unemployment rate is high-ish at the moment but not traditionally so. It is also somewhat difficult to compare to many other EU countries' rates as the employment market is generally more fluid. Ajkgordon (talk) 10:51, 24 January 2012 (UTC)
