Andy slaps down User:Conservative.[edit]

"Not newsworthy"img She said her name was Billie Jean and she was fresh in town/I didn't know her stage-line ran from hell. 02:55, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Conservative's sudden shift in toneimg gives me the feeling that there was some private slapping before the public one. Pdoke2 (talk) 03:15, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Congrats Ken, you finally made Andy act. --Revolverman (talk) 03:17, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
Yet this stuff is "newsworthy":
  • The atheist community and internet atheism is still a hostile wasteland.
  • Michael Shermer is reprimanded for giving poor advice on how to debate a creationist
  • One more chapter to go before the newly revised Question evolution! campaign book for middle school students is sent to a second group of student reviewers.
No one will forget where they were when they first heard the news that only one chapter remained before some book for middle schoolers was sent to a second groups of student reviewers . --Night Jaguar (talk) 07:21, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
There are a few things that are occurring in my off wiki activities that will be taking up more and more of my time. As a result, I think I will be making less main page citations to the Question evolution! campaign blog. - that is the sound of Ken running down his intellectual bunny-hole. Whenever Ken loses he is always mysteriously very busy elsewhere. Redchuck.gif ГенгисmaraudingModerator 07:51, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Karajou saves ruins the day![edit]

Blocks AlanE for accusing Koward of being a... coward. Then he blows up another user, and not content with his daily hypocrisy intake, replaces his talk page and bullies him about being bullied. Jolly good censorship! While ignoring the greater threat entirely. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:38, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

Ignoring the irony of Karajou banning Fnarrow for harassing Conservative, what's with the British spelling of "behaviour"?
It's one of the default blocking choices see here --Colonel Sanders (talk) 00:31, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
"Threat" means there is anything left to threaten; CP is already destroyed from the inside.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:35, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
For all Ken's and Andy's antics, the final nail in CP's coffin was driven in the day Andy re-promoted TK to admin. After that it was only a matter of time before the we get the current situation - a nearly dead wiki, devoid of community, run by a few bitter, old, white guys who have no influence anywhere else. --PsyGremlinKhuluma! 23:54, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Alex00[edit]

Poor taste parody at its finest Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 16:23, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

After looking though his other edits and the source he quoted, he might actually be serious...*sigh* Fucking Poe's Law Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 16:27, 28 April 2013 (UTC)
I made a few alterations, to get the entry to sound a little more sane. It'll be interesting to see what happens next... Darkmind (talk) 16:41, 28 April 2013 (UTC)

An armed society is a secure society[edit]

Andy: A travesty happened!? political gain! img\ Because the ideal state of society is living in perpetual fear because you know they all have guns. --MikallakiM 06:08, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

To the people who claim we need guns to make us safer, I always have the same response: Police officers hit their targets about a third of the time and they're fucking trained. Why the hell should I or anyone else trust Jeb from down the street to do better in a life or death situation. Captain Swing (bringer of nachos) 06:24, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Best of the Public. When will people learn that if police officers didn't train with their firearms they could just point them in the vague direction of their target, empty their clip as fast as possible and hit every target that they are aiming at with a 100% success rate. Everybody knows that.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 09:37, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
I really don't understand Andy's obsession with adding a body count to situations where nobody actually died and the attacker was subdued pretty much immediately. There's no way this particular scenario could have been made better by guns, but it could have been made much, much worse. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:42, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
(EC) The idea that parishioners should have brought guns into Mass to worship the Prince of Peace is just funny as hell. Even in Oklahoma, where concealed carry licenses are easy to get, churches have signs that no guns are permitted on the premises. Because, without those signs, you just know that someone is coming to Church packin' heat, 'cause you just never know when the shit's going down. Those fuckin' Unitarians just don't know how to stay in their place. They been eyein' us man. They been eyein' us.
Mind you, this kinda reasoning is manly in Andy's world. But I'd wager the man doesn't shoot. Phiwum (talk) 10:44, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Funny you should say that... the Unitarian congregation in Mendon, Massachusetts once had a tradition of turning to face the meeting house's front door for the hymns. With everybody singing, it would be too hard to hear the Nipmucs sneaking up on them. I guess every householder kept his fowling piece charged and ready to hand, even in church. Somebody should tell that doofus that times have changed. Sprocket J Cogswell (talk) 12:56, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
"Man stabs 4 choir members during Sunday mass.... The four victims suffered non-life threatening injuries." Andy sees this and thinks the solution is to make it easier for lunatics to get their hands on guns? --Night Jaguar (talk) 11:01, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
No doubt this reminds him of his delightful Conservative "parable". Cantabrigian (talk) 11:48, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Clearly, famished women who have deliberately starved themselves for days for Jesus should carry guns so that they can fend off big church mass murderers. (talk to a) Nihilist 17:28, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Bringing a gun to a church is like bringing a pork sandwich to a synagogue. I'm reminded of when Jesus was taken from Gethsemane, and Peter stood up in his defense. Jesus, of course, said "Put up again thy sword into his place: for all they that take the sword shall perish with the sword. Except for right now. Waste that motherfucker!" Carlaugust (talk) 12:50, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

A literalist can make an easy defense: Jesus was talking about swords. He didn't say a single word about guns! --Night Jaguar (talk) 13:35, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
In that case, Jesus is really gonna be pissed about this attack... Knives are the closest everyday object we have to swords in modern society. Time for Knife control. Pdoke2 (talk) 14:32, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────I'm certain Andy has selectively-forgotten who Terry Ratzmann was. I also find it incredibly interesting that conservatives, including Andy, always love to show their appreciation for the taxpayer-funded, publicly employed police force (because they pepper-spray peaceniks and Occupy protesters). --Seth Peck (talk) 16:29, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

I've been thinking more about this... First, let me say that I am an amateur target shooter(long range rifle and "tactical shooting"), gun collector and CPL holder who caries on a regular basis. Anyway, I was thinking of the lay out of various churches I've been in throughout my life and based upon the descriptions in various reports, I cannot think of a way in which even the best shooter could have ended this with a better outcome than "4 non life threatening injuries". Every layout I can picture from my memory or even from pics of churches I've seen would put a significant number of people between the "good guy(shooter)" and "bad guy(stabber)" no matter where they were each positioned. Additionally, one of the major "commandments" taught to anyone who learns to be a responsible gun owner is to not never point the gun at something unless you're will to destroy(kill) it, but also to always know what is beyond that target in case you miss or the bullet passes through the target. This challenge of "over-penetration" can be minimized in a "daily carry" weapon through the use of certain types of ammunition but it is still not a guarantee. Going back to the church layouts, when you take "over-penetration" and the odds of even the best shooter in the world missing in an adrenaline charged and chaotic situation like that, no responsible gun owner would/should have fired in that situation. Pdoke2 (talk) 17:07, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
The NRA fantasy is that everybody has a gun at the ready. So there's never someone in the way of a good shot because the closest parishoner takes him down. Presumably after waving off the others with a cry of "I got it!" Whoover (talk) 20:31, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
This guy must be a Poe. Guns in schools, guns in church. What next, guns in football stadiums? Can you imagine a bunch of Milwall fans packing a load? --Mercian (talk) 23:52, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
If only her were - Andy isn't alone in thinking that a bunch of untrained amateurs letting rip in a crowded church, full of panicked people would be a good thing. I had exactly the same debate with Terry Launchbooty over at his blog, after the Aurora cinema shooting. He also couldn't understand that having a whole bunch of people firing away in a darkened cinema, full of people running for the doors could possibly end in anything other than a glorious shooting of the perpetrator with no other injuries. In their world, owning a gun gives you Hawkeye aiming abilities. --PsyGremlinTal! 00:17, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Yesterday a high school honor student in a private, all-male Catholic school pulled out a gun and shot himself in the classroom. Regrettably, my first thought was "What would Andy think? Was the kid an atheist? Did he play too many video games? Maybe he smoked a little pot?" It wasn't a good feeling. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:47, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

If someone in that classroom had a gun, he could have shot the kid before he shot himself, thereby defusing the situation. She said her name was Billie Jean and she was fresh in town/I didn't know her stage-line ran from hell. 16:48, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
No, I figured it out. The kid probably didn't have a gun license, proving liberal gun control doesn't work. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:51, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Cue Andy going apeshit[edit]

Jets release Tim Tebow. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 12:28, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Cue "liberals would rather lose than keep Tebow on." 2 gets you 1 that's almost the exact phrase he'll use. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 12:40, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Looks like Tebow will be out of the NFL. Teams were willing to trade for Tebow, provided he was willing to switch positions from Quarterback to Tight End, but Tebow refused, and now he is out of the job. Still this isn't the end entirely for Tebow; I would not be shocked if he ended up in the CFL or Arena Football.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:23, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
His CFL rights belong to the Montreal Alouettes, who have the best QB in the game, but that guy is getting old and could use a good back up. She said her name was Billie Jean and she was fresh in town/I didn't know her stage-line ran from hell. 18:27, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
As for Andy, I expect him to ignore this for declaring Jason Collins an overrated sports star with little talent on a bad team (the last part which would be true).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 18:57, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
He'll live out his playing days as a religious motivational speaker before eventually starting a megachurch of his own. Occasionaluse (talk) 19:21, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm sure the Alouettes will really enjoy having Tebow around. He will be a truly fabulous addition to the team when he learns how to run and throw. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 21:45, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

@Billie Jean: you said a good back-up... T-Bone would make a much better Tight End than QB at NFL level. Does he prefer being a QB to hog the limelight? Or to get a bigger pay packet? Cardinal Fang (talk) 21:54, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

Most likely because that is simply what he wants to do. Being a quarterback in itself doesn't necessarily mean you will earn more than you would be as a Tight End, it all depends on your skill level and success at each of those positions; if he is an excellent Tight End, he'll make more money than he would have as some perpetual backup QB.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 22:37, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
True. </cynicism> Cardinal Fang (talk) 09:09, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Are you guys deliberately talking in double entendres? Redchuck.gif ГенгисYou have the right to be offended; and I have the right to offend you.Moderator 10:17, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
In what way is Tight End a double-entendre? Cardinal Fang (talk) 10:30, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Instead of answering that, I will leave it as one of the great mysteries of the universe.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:46, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Andy finally got around it[edit]

The NFL is just another liberal organization who ostracizes Tebow for his Christianityimg. No Andy, he isn't ostracized for his religion, he just isn't good enough as a quarterback to get a job in the league; I though you supported marketplace capitalism, well the NFL marketplace has spoken.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:51, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Gotta love that My Religion Is Always Right(tm) shit, completely ignoring the fact that Tebow just sucks. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 23:53, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Won't someone please think of the straight athletes?![edit]

Andy laments that NBA's Jason Collins announced that he is gay, (refusing to even utter his name) and that the media finds this newsworthy; questioning why doesn't the media cover with front page news all the straight athletes out there. I guess Andy never watches ESPN, or NBCSports, or ABCSports, or CBSSports, or FoxSports, for the NFL Network, or the Big-10 Network, for the Golf Channel, and on and on and on... Straight sports stars get massive media coverage on a regular basis, what the hell is he talking about? That the media doesn't go out of their way to mention their straightness? Could it be perhaps because that is the assumed default? Could be...--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 23:06, 29 April 2013 (UTC)

this is the same bull shit argument touted in many comment sections on this story and many similar ones. Andy is the bottom half of the internet. AMassiveGay (talk) 23:46, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
Half? You are too generous. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 23:54, 29 April 2013 (UTC)
If Andy and the Internet were around in 1947, the frontpage of Conservapedia would read "Negro agenda takes over the media, again:

Why aren't there front-page stories about how more than 99.5% of sports stars are not black?"--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 00:45, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Yeah, I love Andy's response. Because all the articles about Collins coming out are articles about how 99.5% of professional athletes are (presumed) heterosexual. Phiwum (talk) 01:56, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
So, I originally heard about this story from seeing it mentioned on Yo Is This Racist? where a questioner lamented how horrible everybody was being. And I thought, "Oh, that's sad, I guess I should look at a few stories to get a flavour of just how racist or maybe homophobic people are being". I read some UK news coverage, which was very slight, basically "The US didn't have openly gay sports stars, and this guy is arguably the first one to out himself" and I couldn't detect any racism in the actual stories, so I read the comments, which were mostly people saying "Yeah, that's great for this Jason guy" although I'm sure if I scrolled long enough I'd find the people saying Hitler was right or that we never should have come out of the ocean let alone the closet.
So then I was still a bit sad, but now about how presumably racist and homophobic the US media must be to cause that reaction from their stories. But then I was bored for a few minutes so I picked a random US news source, the NY Times, and read their story. And it's the same deal except that it assumes you know the various kinds of US sport (so it doesn't expand NBA, NFL etc.) and it's a lot longer because this is a big national story rather than something happening on the far side of an ocean. It quotes people representing the teams and the players and the sport itself all saying basically that this shouldn't be a big deal but it is, and there's some in-depth stuff about how as a freelancer he's not guaranteed to actually play again. No coaches saying like "If I see a gay person in my locker room I'm going to shoot them" or even fans quoting the Bible or that sort of crap. OK, so still no detectable racism and homophobia. How about the comments? I scrolled through the top 3-4 pages and they're uniformly praising Jason for having the courage to do this, and that sort of thing. No "Fags must die" crap, presumably the NY Times has a person deleting those or a self-moderation system that's keeping them at the bottom with the people who think this is the right place to advertise their theory that the Twin Towers were destroyed by the Apple corporation to drive interest in their forthcoming iPod device.
And thus in the end I don't get it. Obviously people like Andy are going to foam at the mouth, but Andy foams at the mouth at everything. The mature established press seemed to take as you'd expect, or as the London bus adverts put it "Some people are gay. Get over it". Tialaramex (talk) 08:53, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
I'm not sure the New York Times and its readers are all that representative of US views regarding homosexuality. You might try a more backwater paper. The Daily Oklahoman is mighty conservative, in a mouth-breathing sort of way. Phiwum (talk) 11:35, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
It's kinda hard to find newspapers with a free online presence. The Daily Oklahoman is right out -- pay wall. Dallas Morning News, too (not that they're very conservative, as I recall). Oh well. Phiwum (talk) 11:44, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
I am curious to know why you would think The Daily Oklahoman is more representative of American views on homosexuality than the New York Times? It is akin to saying Oklahoma is more "real America" then the New York metro region.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:08, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
I didn't mean to imply that the Oklahoman is more representative of American views. I really don't know what the prevailing nationwide opinion on homosexuality is. I just wanted to suggest that Tialaramex may have come away with a rather different impression if he hadn't chosen the New York Times, a paper which is fairly erudite, published in a liberal part of the country and, I'd wager, with a better educated readership than most newspapers. (Newspaper readers in general are probably not representative of the average US citizen, either.) Phiwum (talk) 19:08, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Did Terry ever play professional baseball?[edit]

He's certainly a Dodger. #rimshot#

One of the CNAV columnists is a guy named Rev. Michael Bresciani. His latest column opens by declaring only one out of every three Americans are Christians, and that the real number is probably less.

Pretty much everything I've ever seen puts that number at around 70-75%. Terry refuses to explain it (and yes, I know Terry didn't write the piece, but he's the only CNAV writer that regularly responds to comments.)

I also asked Terry if he considers Bresciani to be a prophet in the sense of "someone who speaks for God". He refuses to answer that, too.

Sheesh. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 11:44, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Catholics aren't Christians. Unitarians aren't Christians. Mormons aren't Christians. It's pretty simple. Only people who believe exactly like Terry and his wingnut friends are Real, True Christians. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 11:56, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Aren't there Catholics in his "Black Robe Regiment"?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 12:12, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
To be honest, in most of the stuff I could find, the only thing I can see that looks close is the number of Catholics. Roughly 1 in 3 Americans is raised Catholic, but even then only about 25% consider themselves 'active'. Evangelical is close as well, but by pretty much any definition that makes sense, about 75% of Americans consider themselves to be Christian. Oh wait, 'that makes sense' of course, that's where I went wrong. Worm (talk) 13:06, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
It's not the number of Catholics; Bresciani replied and said he's a former Catholic. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 13:18, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
My guess he means actively practicing Evangelical or conservative protestants. By the broadest definition, 75% or so of America is Christian, but there is the legit question of what percent of those people are practicing Christians versus those who just profess theism and attach said theism to the Judeo-Christian god because of our generally Christian historical culture, but otherwise do not participate in religion.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:32, 30 April 2013 (UTC)
Yeah something like that. The only other thing that stands out for me is that 1 in 3 is generally quoted as the proportion of Americans that would like Christianity to be the official religion of the USA. To be honest, unless he's using some weird definition that he can explain (but won't) it could easily be a typo (although an odd one) but he's probably as resistant as Andy when it comes to admitting mistakes. Of course, 1 in 3 is an incredible common description so it's hard to try and find a source that he might be relying on. Apparently something close to 1 in 3 Americans have an STI, so take from that what you will :) Worm (talk) 13:41, 30 April 2013 (UTC)

Can someone explain what it means to be 'legal tender'? It is voluntary on the part of the retailer, according to the story. Can a retailer not already accept anything they wanted in exchange?

Well, in the UK at least, "legal tender" has a much wider meaning than whether you can pay in cash. The actual nature of that cash is controlled, depending on the size of the transaction. For example, if you are buying a £250K house you couldn't demand that the vendor accept the money in copper coin. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 19:13, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

IIRC some places (France rings a bell) have a different legal framework for retail where there's a presumption that you can buy things which are offered for sale in a store. In the English system you can treat the presence of these items in the store as almost a coincidence, the seller always has discretion (modulo various anti-discrimination rules) as to whether to accept every individual offer by a "customer" but in the (let's call it French) system if there are some goods for sale then you can definitely buy them. In this approach you can have rules (which are not called legal tender) that legally specify how a person can pay for such goods, because the seller no longer has discretion to choose whether to accept each individual transaction. It could makes sense if you have such rules to add a new denomination, entirely new currency, or a non-currency that's widely accepted as a medium of exchange, to the rules. But again, that wouldn't be "legal tender" because it's not about debts. Tialaramex (talk) 23:33, 1 May 2013 (UTC)

I guess it really hinges on how things are priced. If something sells for, say, .8 ounce of gold and you give them an ounce, how do you take your change? If the only option is .2 ounce (weigh out gold dust?) then gold is the currency. If the vendor looks up the price of gold that day and gives you 20% of the price of an ounce of gold in dollars, then it's no different than a check. Any pricing in dollars or converting the value of gold makes "dual currency" useless. If these tea party types want to make their statement they had better be prepared to unpeg from the dollar completely, transact only in weight measures of gold and accept any volatility with a smile. Lots of luck. Whoover (talk) 05:39, 2 May 2013 (UTC)

Don't make the mistake of confusing Biblical Archaeology with what may be termed the "creation science of biblical archaeology". One is a legitimate field within the discipline, while the other is only concerned with things like finding Noah's Ark. Biblical Archaeology is not the domain of crackpots but actual academics who are answerable to the public and the stakeholders in the universities who fund them... especially in Israel. That doesn't mean that they don't play by the rules, because they often don't, it just means that they cherry-pick some data while ignoring evidence that says something different to what they want to hear. Two good examples that come immediately to mind are a) the complete lack of evidence for Jerusalem being anything more than a tiny village at the time of Solomon and b) the abundant evidence for the Israelites being polytheists and worshiping idols at least until the time of Hezekiah. And then there's the prickly subject of who the Israelites actually were in the first place, especially since it is extremely difficult to tell them apart from "the natives" at many sites. Saying that these subjects have immense political and economic significance would be an understatement of biblical proportions. Sokar (talk) 18:31, 3 May 2013 (UTC)

Maybe its just envy over a colleague, and maybe its just my overactive imagination but I get the feeling he had some deeper grudge against Obama, especially given that while a certified loony during the early years of CP, after Barack HUSAAAAAAAAAIN Obama got elected he pretty much took a leap over the insanity event horizon with the wingnuttery to a place where black holes are an anti biblical conspiracy, the word Christian is a "liberal distortion", and Barack Obama is simultaneously ever evil that ever has or will exist. Personally I think he already detested his guts before he was even in the runnings for president. I cant imagine a young(er) andy at the height of his hubris (i.e. when Mommy was still famous..ish and his dreams of entering politics were still fresh) taking being the underling of a younger liberal "foreigner" with a funny name very well.

Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 11:13, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, if you want to go really deep with the analysis, try this: Andy seems to blame public school, Obama, marijuana, homosexuality and video games for all the evils in the world. I keep imagining there was some single event in his childhood which turned him against all of these at once, but then I start laughing too hard at the mental pictures I come up with. Pdoke2 (talk) 14:45, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
I think its fairly clear what single event made him like that. His mother's "15 minutes of fame" in which mamma schalfly was able to screw over millions of innocent people (or "clueless liberals" as she may well have referred to them) just by spewing hideously deceitful far right propaganda in the right places and at the right time clearly left a mark on his ambitions, as no doubt did her own personal indoctrination of him through his life.
As much of an irredeemably hateful arsewipe he may be, he was put on that path by a greater evil. The fact he and the Pestilential Muslim Usurper actually worked together and likely knew eachother to some extent is the thing that makes me think maybe they had some kind of personal rivalry or emnity in their history (or more likely Andy had an exclusively one sided rivalry against Obama who was likely just puzzled as to why one of his team acted so weird around him) that would explain why he went from run of the mill creationist whackjob to the genuinely unhinged crazy he has degenerated into Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 17:09, 4 May 2013 (UTC)
I like this analysis. To riff: his mother is basically talentless at any everything but rhetoric. The Schlaflys may not actually be very smart people at all. What young Andy saw is that it's possible to make something up that superficially resonates with a version of the truth, but is at base a truly hateful lie being peddled by a truly hateful hypocrite. It instilled in him this notion that one need not put any particularly deep thought into conceiving of and developing an idea as long as it's possible to label it in some way that you think it might be attractive to whatever group you're pandering to. The problem is that his mother, despite being an odious crone even at the time, was simply at the right place at the right time hoodwinking the right people - keep in mind that it's incredibly difficult to amend the Constitution. And in my opinion the ERA wasn't necessarily such a good idea when Congress and the Supreme Court were developing an abysmal record of protecting women under existing law - that should have been a priority since 1964, or even since women, black folks, and native people were finally recognized as human beings, though it appears to have been an afterthought to the point that there are any number of colorable objections to Congress' remedial power under the 14th Amendment and the Commerce Clause is a horseshit way to implement civil rights legislation. So all you have to do is latch onto the start of a non-frivolous argument and everything flows from there - wingnuts and fundies will extrapolate to no end regardless of the facts. But Andy was never anything but a good student: he was apparently unable to commit to a career in engineering, he is a poor lawyer despite graduating with honors from a remarkable law school, and now he's a poor demagogue, lacking the ability to do anything but emulate his mother, yet also lacking charisma and simple simple wisdom enough to change his tune when it's clear he's not just failing to appeal to mainstream conservatives, but only attracts fringe players like Hurlbut, who one might reasonably worry could become violent.

Oh and yes we are actually a group of people, a few have left their separate ways to continue their own paths (2 still have block, edit, skipcatcha, ect rights and will most likely be coming to their end games soon as well).

My aim re the blocks was the basically wipe out large chunks of China with some added Canada and California thrown in to see what would happen.

How will it all end?[edit]

Its been a good 7 or so years since Conservapedia was created, and since then it has lost the homeschool kids who were once it's foundation, lost all competent members once the owner's authoritarian insanity became apparent, lost all media interest after the lulz of a fundie wiki wore off, and lost all possibility of growth and reform once the junta of Andy, Kara, Jpatt, Hurlbut, Poor, and Ken became apparent in it's intolerance for anyone muscling in on their "turf".

Hell, at the moment Conservapedia ranks behind metapedia in terms of global alexa rankings, and when a neo-nazi wiki is outperforming you by a fairly wide margin, you know you are in serious trouble, especially if you advertise yourself as one of THE premier wikis that is having a massive effect on american and global socity, politics, and culture.

What I am curious of however is how it, and by extension all of it's parasitical spin offs (question evolution and CNAV) will eventually end. Personally I doubt it will last for another 7 years, or even another 5. Maybe should a republican win in 2016 they might get a second wind of sorts, but even then I dont see them surviving past the turn of the decade.

But will it end with a proverbial "bang" with Andy and co deciding to end it with as much drama and pomposity as possible? (fr example, in the case of another Democrat win in 2016 they react by proclaiming they will start some IRL protest movement that never materialises and use this as an excuse to end the website), or will it literally go on until andy permanently runs out of bandwidth allowance, or the "big name" members simply get to the age where they are incapable of performing their sysop duties?

(TLDR how do you think CP gonna die?) Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 17:38, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Not with a bang but a whimper. CP's demise has been predicted for years, yet it still keeps limping on. That will remain the case for as long as Andy doesn't have anything better to do with his free time. Vulpius (talk) 17:50, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
I dunno, hes getting old himself, and I cant imagine being in a state of insane paranoia and hatred is comfortable, even when you are sitting pretty on family money in the lap of luxary while doing it. Unless he is as much a lunatic as Ken I think he may call some excuse in the near future to claim either "Mission accomplished" or "We have done all we can online, time to take our cause IRL", especially if his "arch nemesis" is stepping down in 3 years (Hell, I wouldnt put it past him when Obama steps down to declare that it was only due to conservapedia that he didnt run fr a third term) and after that, unless another old associate of Andy's replaces him I dont see him being able to muster up enough fury to keep slogging on.

Kenny I can handle, he is just a slightly ill person and goat knows I've known enough of them in my life I can handle them.

The money won't dry up any time soon. He's already predicted that activity on his wiki would dry up and that it would prove CP right. Andy is basically a raconteur. Lenski was a win. He went on the Colbert Report, for chrissakes. He will find a way to "lash out" when he feels the need. Occasionaluse (talk) 21:06, 7 May 2013 (UTC)
It's purely on the whims of Andy. If he finally gets bored and wants to stop, it'll die. If not, it'll continue. Even if Terry, Ken, and Karajou quit (which, at least in the former two cases, is unlikely to happen anytime soon), Andy will still plug away like he has been. I'm honestly pretty surprised it hasn't happened yet. As mentioned at the top, the homeschoolers are all gone, so I'm not sure why he feels the need to keep at it. I'm guessing he just doesn't have anything better to do with his time? Cow...Hammertime! 22:02, 7 May 2013 (UTC)

Admit defeat? never. Declare "I WIN! MY WORK IS DONE NAO!!" and then claiming that conservapedia has fulflled it's mission thus closing it down? I think that may be how it ends. As much as we joke, Andy has an IRL life... sad and pathetic as it may be, and eventually push will come to shove and he may decide to ditch the wiki while concentrating on something else.

Did he at least die painlessly?[edit]

To sheds you sayimg.... How's his wife holding up? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 06:10, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

The WIGO (about "metamorphosizing") is so-so, but the article itself is a hoot. Beyond sealing the image of dogs pupating and emerging from their chrysalides as dire wolves, we learn from Ken that, "This month I will be working out 6 days a week for most of the month." Buff Ken and dire wolf cocoons are two wonderful mental images on which to meditate, don't you think? Finally, we learn that he got one of his all-important communications from a lady (whom we are told Ken has made happy -- even prior to his Occupy Gym project) and that this came at "9am Greenwich Meantime." This is undoubtedly the origin of the phrase "in the meantime." Whoover (talk) 06:21, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
I don't really want to think about buff Ken making any women happy. If I didn't know it was all made up, I'd be quite ill. (Also, what's his weird obsession with giving times in GMT? Do we need to teach him about UTC or something?) --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 06:30, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
GMT is a conservative term, UTC is liberal. Surely you know that, Jeeves? As for "metamorphosizing", I had to look twice at Ken's spelling; both on CP and QE! What alternative spellchecker is he using at the moment that let through? His credentials as a tutor of English look even weaker. I also like his use of creationist numeracy:
The 4 keys to good dog/wolf predators are:
1. A large jaw
2. Endurance and persistence
3/4. Speed and weight of the predator
So "speed and weight" count as individual characteristics but "endurance and persistence " are magically combined. If there was any logical consistency to loony creationist thought that should either be 3 or 5 key features; never is it 4. But of course there is no logical consistency, so 4 is the correct number!

One thing Ken seems to be forgetting while raving on about what perfect predators Dire Wolves are:

They went extinct.--Fergus Mason If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don't put it there. - Anton Chekov 11:44, 8 May 2013 (UTC)

I wonder if they'd give a discount just to make me buy it and leave. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 11:45, 8 May 2013 (UTC)
Of course, dire wolves went extinct, but not because they weren't effective predators. They went extinct after the Great Flood. Like lots of other animals. All of which, the omniscient God told Noah to save from the flood, even though God must have known that many of those species would die out right after the flood, so why did they have to take up room on the ark to begin with?

Unfortunately it turned out that an awful lot of kinds were allergic to foam and copped it. But good news - after the foam reached the top of the mountains and Noah was allegedly mistakenly about to shag a sheep, believing it to be his wife, or at least a human relative (sailors, I tell you, they'll shag anything!), God whisked the foam away in an even larger bukkake explosion than the one that created the asteroid belt and so created the Oort cloud.

I also enjoy the glimpse into the fundie universe, where we learn "the dire wolf [which lived until 10,000 years ago] died in the Flood -- see Permian extinction [of 250 million years ago]." 96% of marine taxa went extinct at the end of the Permian, from drowning?

AugustO finally spelled out the "sheds" typo and Ken fixed it. Looking back, I strongly suspect he thought the phrase is "ripped to sheds." It fits with his weird dyslexia/learning disorder symptoms.

Also don't know if u already knew this but Andy has been using kik to communicate with various CP members. Chatted to him a few times on there. Kara and Ed on there too. Reason didn't get sysopship was couldn't provide enough proof. He wanted social security (Ie medicare card for me), Licence, Proof of degree and facebook profile link.

He's basically hit rock bottom intellectually. His mental state fluctuates but I honestly haven't seen him employ critical reasoning for years now, to the extent he was able to fit any in between quote mines back in the day.
I'm thinking it would be sort of cathartic for us to collaborate on a legit Ken article that goes through his history on various fora and documents his madness up to this "you must debate this other guy who doesn't want to debate you before I will read your comments (that I thrive on reading)."

Because the internet is a medium that allows him to be read. Not by many, I grant you. But it's on mission to point out and counter the flaws in what he says.

Coolant is no longer conservative.[edit]

Aw, man. August pointed outimg that Andy's count was off, and there were more words listed than he thought. As a result, the "perfect doubling" was all screwed up. The natural conclusion is, of course, that some "recent"img additions weren't high quality and so Andy did the intellectually honest thing: removed just enough words to almost finagle the perfect doubling and salvage his important "theory" (yeah, yeah, I know that these occasional announcements of a perfect doubling really provide no evidence for his theory, but Andy thinks otherwise).

Anyway, as a result, we loseimg one of the all-time great conservative words: "Coolant". This word has been reliably conservative since August, 2010img -- added by Andy himself!

Say, does this mean that all those previously announced perfect doublings were imperfect and hence don't count as "evidence"? Phiwum (talk) 14:20, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

Oh, JPatt lost his "recent" contribution of "Den Mother"img (April 2011), too. Phiwum (talk) 14:27, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
I wonder if he's even fooling himself with his "perfect doubling" spiel these days. At this point, even he must realise he's cherrypicking. I think we've witnessed another example of Andy is never wrong. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:53, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
It's my favorite of Andy's pet "theories" because it is so utterly blatantly obvious, to anyone, that he is overtly manipulating the data to produce the result that he wants. He basically breaks all the rules of good science in an attempt to prove his assertion.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 15:01, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
And AugustO spanksimg andy by pointing out that he himself had added coolant and that means that everything since was, to say the least, slightly dubious.

By this point, everyone at CP must be a reject from Wikipedia, or a parodist (who may or may not also be a reject from Wikipedia). What's AugustO's deal that he's at CP at all? Is he a religious fanatic who's at least self-aware? --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 15:46, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
BMcP, not only does he break all the rules, but the doubling effect that he works so hard to attain is completely irrelevant to whether the growth is actually exponential! Even assuming, of course, that there was a clear definition of "exponential", this sort of observed pattern would be somewhat relevant if the words chosen were truly randomly selected -- but even then, of course, no one would expect an exact doubling. The whole thing is not only dishonest, it's just plumb stupid.
Which is why this is one of my favorite pages on CP. Phiwum (talk) 15:40, 10 May 2013 (UTC)
Even worse, Andy is the sole arbitrator of what words are accepted or rejected; there is no way this whole thing can't be seen by people other than the product of ego.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 15:56, 10 May 2013 (UTC)

How did I miss this?

More Liberal Denial[edit]

Conservapedia proven right that Tamerlan killed his friends and the liberal authorities continue with the coverup. I get that. Makes perfect sense. Except the bit about Boston area police forces being part of the liberal establishment. How the hell did Obama get them all to cover for a Muslim murderer? We know Obama wants to because he's the ranking head of the League of Muslim Murderers. I get that. But no Boston Blue is willing to blow the whistle on the coercion he's using? I am so impressed. If only he could use some of that mojo on Congress.

On the same subject, can anyone also explain why the Obama Administration should be declaring guilt in a Boston murder case? Beside the fact that nobody's been charged, I mean. And the fact that Andy's perp is dead. A conservative administration would have twisted the screws some more and had the local police declare the case solved? What is he talking about? Has he ever won a case? Really. Whoover (talk) 00:22, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Because all conspiracy theories are so well run that nobody ever involved blows them unless they are disgraced and soon to be assassinated, so they found the local tin hat association to tell the secret to. & obama should be declaring guilt because Obama is a fucking Kenyan lying bastard who is always at fault always. You have to remember, they can never win- either obama isnt doing enough to do something or hes overstepping the bounds of his power, there is no middle--MikallakiM 04:37, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Ken attempts to back this site by showing a graph of this site growing[edit]

I am not sure what Ken is trying to achieve here. He basically says Rationalwiki is struggling because we are just too atheist and nerdy, and then posts a graph where our site's traffic is shown to be on a long term upward swing over the last two yearsimg. Worse, looking at Ken's second favorite site, we have the following:

  • Rationalwiki - Alexa Traffic Rank: 36,464 United States Traffic Rank in US: 12,452
  • Creation.com (CMI) Alexa Traffic Rank: 68,730 United States Traffic Rank in US: 22,752
  • Conservapedia - Alexa Traffic Rank: 69,714 Traffic Rank in US: 19,144

Phiwum: Ken's statement, while true, is actually a bit weird. When I used google.co.uk, the top hits for 'colonic' were all for colonic irrigation services in towns around where I live (I had no idea that so many English colons needed irrigating). The weird thing is that searching on google.com also found a whole lot of colonic irrigators somewhere in the USA (I can't remember where exactly). To replicate Ken-boy's top hit, I first had to google for 'Google USA', then go to a mirror site for Google USA that doesn't seem to be specific to any particular locality in the USA, and search for 'colonic' there. Kenny must have been sitting in front of his computer for hours and hours and hours trying to find some - any! - vaguely indecent word which came top in some - any! - kind of Google search.

I can guarantee one and all that i am not a racist, im quite sorry that i didnt present a better first impression, but i fixed my user page, and i shall ass more info about myself in the coming days, and i hope to start writing, editing and hopefuly get to know everyone a bit, Ive admired this wiki for a few months and and I'm excited to become a part of it.SmittyGreen (talk) 17:40, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

What fun, i had some fun with ken on conservapedia, after showing his writting to a few of my close friends, who happen to be a nun a priest, who agreed that much if what he wrote was extreamly rude, and downright sinfull, they agreed a man of his type will most likley find themselves suprised when god casts them out of heaven...anyhow, after that and hacking my account, he even included me in the newist QE blog, funSmittyGreen (talk) 23:18, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Alright... lemme see if I got all this straight. You joined RW; and while you were drunk, Ken hacked your account and left a drunken incoherent racist rant. Which you've since deleted. Now you've taken to this talk page with a marginally more coherent defense. Do I have it right so far? Because if I do, you'll have to forgive me if I remain skeptical. --Inquisitor (talk) 23:45, 11 May 2013 (UTC)

Ok so, i joined rational wiki a few weeks ago, sober and didnt have much to say, so i didnt post anything, i got buzzed and started fucking with conservapedia, and the QE blog, i really just wanted to point out all of thier unchristian behavior , and they quickly blocked me and i thought that was the end of it, soo i got drunk and had a few friends over to watched star trek, and when i checked back to see if anyone said anything, i found that my user page was filled with anti semetic crap, look at the latest QE blog, im the lame atheist that Threatened him with hell fire... I only did so after checking with my religious family members ( one who's a nun, one who's a priest) to see if i was right in my thinking that the QE blogs slandering of RW, and the articles making fun of atheists and gays for being fat, stupid and unable to find women...plus the article making fun of poor old PZ for needing help climbing the Triceratops, were in fact sinfull, and they agreed that they were not only pridefull, but even the verses they use to condem gays, say slanderers, will not make it to heaven, so i told them that, and they got mad. Its cool if you're skeptical, but i know what happened, and ill do whatever i can to prove it, i'd really like to become part of this website, it shares much of my own world view..plus its funny, soo just let me know what i can do to prove it to you, and try giving me a chance....SmittyGreen (talk) 04:02, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

So you're still claiming that someone decided to hack some random yahoo with L337 haxorz skills because...conservatives? And this happened after a priest and a nun blessed your trolling the QE blog with hellfire? Right. Yeah, I think you're going to need to come up with a better story my friend.

I think people would accept you far more if you just admitted you were stupid in posting that anti-Semitic crap, realized it was wrong, and did the right thing by erasing it and apologizing rather that this ridiculous story.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:32, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
What's more amazing than conservative spoofing his IP address? That he made the post in a single edit! There is another possibility; he left his account logged in and his startrek friends did it.

I don't admit to things i didn't do, id rather pack my bags,yes it may not have been ken, but there were reference in the post to things i said to him on CP and the QE blog, I'm not new at being offensive, and anything i do to offend people i tend to proudly own up to, this i didn't do, if no one believes me its fine, i know what i did and did not do, and my friends didn't use my iPad or my computer,soo how ever it happened in the end, Idk, I'm no expert, all i know is like I've repeated i didn't write any of that, so we can either believe me or simply move on and after getting to know me, maybe you'll understand that such writing is simply not my style, or if I'm not accepted, i can return to lurking and simply enjoying the website, i only joined because I've enjoyed the site, and thought the least i can do i help add to it, expand it, and better itSmittyGreen (talk) 19:39, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

But since it did somehow make it onto my page i would like to apologize to anyone it offended. Im hoping to close the whole thing and move onto working on edits, page creation, and debate, i hope i can prove myself capable through timeSmittyGreen (talk) 19:44, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Same for me. The week that never was really was a hoot. It would be too much to hope for such fun again. StarFish (talk) 09:11, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Downforeveryoneorjustme is reporting cp as down for everyone. Oh the joys if they do manage to lose an entire week again. Which one of them do you think installed the mediawiki update this time? And could this be the time when AugustO steps in to save the day again and regains some of his rights? Oldusgitus (talk) 09:42, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Will this mean that all the unpersons Ken has made this week will now be un unpersons again ? Ken will be spitting chips btw. Isn't 15th at 5pm GMT meant to another phone hookup with some random the end of internet evolution ? DickV
I think several Very Important Dates have passed.
Dude. CP being down makes me really sad for Ken for some reason. At least in years past he was slightly more capable of interacting with people. Now he's a broken record, literally repeating the same sneering shit over and over to anyone who will talk to him. He was just challenging someone to find his other blogs - I've got numerous Google alerts set up - there are no other blogs. He views himself as a literal warrior struck in the image of Sun Tzu, but doesn't it strike you as incredibly sad that he can't even bear using his own name on the internet? He basically has no independent existence without his "anonymous" appearances. Several of us have seen his weird correspondence with someone's actual creationist family members inquiring in good faith about QE thinking he had something to do with CMI. They weren't willing to send him a note from their pastor or whatever weird intrusive shit he asked for. I just cannot fathom what kind of sad life this man must lead when his greatest triumphs are trolling people who would just as soon forget about him with tales of non-existent victories in a non-existent battle. There is no grand QE movement. There are no volunteers - at most a few people have been willing to humor him, or are working on their own while Ken implies that he's involved by reposting their pictures. Ken is not responsible for any upticks or downticks in internet traffic on any site but his blog, for which he shouldn't be proud. Ugh, Ken. Move on. More importantly, ugh Andy: you're a disgusting person for enabling this guy's self-destruction on your blog. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 10:55, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Got to agree. To have Conservapedia listed as a great accomplishment when it's been called the place where knowledge goes to die on the internet is just beyond depressing. Maybe that's why Andy lets him stay? I just wish other users there would stop beating around the damn bush about his trolling and rule violations (I think that Petmac guy asked something about spamming links is OK for Conservative but being the ONLY one). DonnyC gets blocked for 3 months on wrongful grounds and only August brings it up, and as nice a guy he is he's a pushover, but users with block rights seem to roll over when he reverts them for removing personal remarks. Guess I'm tired of the same old shit. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 12:45, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Everyone is. I'm holding on to the slim hope that when Andy wakes up and notices his pet wiki has gone titsup he throws up his hands and finally says bollocks to it. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 12:53, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I believe Ken does have one other blog, Conservative Triumph, or something like that, but he very rarely posts to it; other than that all he has is his QE blog, although doesn't he have a British and Australian URL that points right back to his QE blog? And that he counts those as separate blogs even though it is the same one?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:14, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
I was told be Kara and Andy a number of times to lay off Ken as they said he is a bit "unstable". They are not completely oblivious but certainly like to turn a blind eye and don't want him to start chucking piles of fecal material at everyone. From what I gathered Kara personally detests Ken and would love to eradicated him. DickV

Is his.img Maybe it is also time to admit that the question evolution booklet ain't going to happen and that your entire campaign is a failure. You can't even man up to debate the fine Mr Mason yourself. What does that show about your machismo Ken ??? Naca (talk) 05:13, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

No, not really he hasn't. Everything he wrote on that talk page is in inverted commas. If anyone asks Ken, he'll say that he was just quoting the anonymous man/woman/collective/Thomson's gazelle which writes the QE! blog. He'll still deny that it's his. Spud (talk) 05:40, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Meh, who cares if he never admits it, we all know it's Ken; Conservapedia all knows it's Ken; ShockofGoat and his crew all know it is Ken; no matter how much "attempted mystery" he tries, the writing style and stream of consciousness is too distinct, and too familiar.
Lately he has been getting really obsessed with us, hoping for attention, going so far as to inadvertently showing the site doing well in an ass-backwards attempt to insult us, not to mention his weird personal obsession with Fergus. The only person I pity in all of this is VivaYehshua, who may be a decent guy for all I know, but has become Ken's "goto" poster-child for debate; no doubt to the fella's chagrin.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 10:48, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Viva is indeed a decent guy. He's a creationist, but not a dogmatic one, and from all my dealings with him he seems just fine. He also says Ken sucks at verbal debates, but is anyone really surprised?--Fergus Mason If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired.

I want to debate "Conservative" but I not been able to get on the chat site 90% of the time and when I do nobody knows who "Conservative" is or doesn't care. I am trying to get on during the day because I am working nights lately. I have not seen "Viva Yeshua" in 2 months. When is he supposed to be on the chat site to arrange these debates? What gives? Also I listened to one of "Shock of God's" "debates" and they're canned. He's a phony. He's reading a script that sounds very much like a William Lane Craig lecture. Does anyone know where he got this material? Nate Keaton (talk) 19:49, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
The guy's been jumping up and down screaming "LOOK AT ME! LOOK AT ME!" at us for the last couple of days. It's just getting sad at this point.

Can we just kind of ignore Kenny? Like, whatever he does we just ignore him? He'll either go off the rails or go away. --Certified Sick Bastard 14:25, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Actually, he'll likely do neither. He'll just start gloating about how his superior creationist intellect has defeat the combined hordes of darkness that is RW, or something like that -- Tacitus (talk) 16:59, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
True, but so what? No one believes him, not even on Conservapedia, if the talkpage is any indication; so let him claim victory all alone against his imaginary opponents. He is too cowardly to debate anyone in reality so why should he be afforded any attention? I am all for ignoring the QE blog posts and his spam references to them on CP, as they are just cries for our loving attention anyway. Granted this is a purely voluntary request, and I don't know how much people here will agree to it, but why bother feeding his ego?--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:04, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
This. The most effective thing RW could do is ignore Ken. He'll just keep going on and on and get mad at all the CP editors who wish he'd just shut up. He is a massive liability to Conservapedia and ultimately his own worst enemy. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 17:11, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────────It is a good idea but... You have to realize Ken is like a bizarre version of Schrödinger's cat. While the cat is both alive and dead until the observation is made, we know Ken is going to be writing incoherent nonsense regardless if we're watching or not. --Inquisitor (talk) 17:34, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

Ken is like some kind of self-correcting system; the less attention he receives the stranger and attention demanding his behavior, thus an equilibrium is maintained. If we were to boycott discussion of Ken or QE, he'd just do something so bizarre that we'd be forced to bring it up. --Marlow (talk) 18:44, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Maybe Ken would do something so bizarre he'd get the attention of someone capable of helping him. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 18:52, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Maybe then it be so bizarre he'd actually be interesting again, until then, he isn't worth the effort, even for lutz.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 20:04, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
That's more likely. However Ken acts online, he's not a danger to himself or others in the real world. --TheLateGatsby (The end of the dock ) 20:07, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
I normally do not get into the whole boycott thing with CP but the sheer fact that Conservative is a complete coward when it comes to debating makes me not want to give him any attention whatsoever (apart from this post :P) I have more respect for the crazy guy spouting nonsense on the street corner than I do for Conservative. If he just said, "You know what guys, I am just not that good at it. Try these more articulate people", I would have no problem. After all we aren't all good at debating. No, instead he puffs himself up, tries to antagonize, makes stipulations he knows nobody would agree to since he is a nobody on the internet and not say, Ray Comfort, Lee Strobel, Ken Ham etc. and when called on his stuff retreats to his bunny hole. I have zero respect for people that can dish it but cannot take it. He really is a pathetic excuse for a human being, at least on the internet. NetharianCubicles are prisons! 23:04, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
"I have zero respect for people that can dish it but cannot take it.". Shit. I'd be impressed if he ever got good at the "dishing out part". Every time he tries to open the proverbial can of Whoop-Ass, he just ends up spilling it all over himself. The guy's a joke from start to finish. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:24, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
