Elementary English exercise[edit]

Turning the Nigel Farage article into proper good English with paragraph-thingies and all that. 171.33.222.26 (talk) 17:17, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

What? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:16, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
He said "Turning the Nigel Farage article into proper good English with paragraph-thingies and all that." StarFish (talk) 18:48, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
That part I'm clear on. The part that's fuzzy is what the fuck that means. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:14, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Ey's talking about this article, and saying that it would be a simple task to turn it into good English. (talk to a) Nihilist 19:25, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Oh, I get it. I guess our esteemed bunchanumbers friend is taking the piss out of them rather than earnestly suggesting we fix CP. My bad. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 20:09, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Hey JohnMuk, PROTIP: when you copypaste from Wikipedia, the returns apparently don't come over, so you get a wall o' text. Just so you know. Godspeed (talk) 21:08, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
That happens if you copy'n'paste the rendered text into the edit box; there isn't magic to convert the rendered text into wikimarkup in your clipboard ... CS Miller (talk) 08:31, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
True. I'm always seeing bits of text with [1] and [2] in the middle on Last.fm wikipages. SophieWilder 08:41, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

(reset) I was merely describing the article - the point is not necessarily to change it.

Who agrees with the haggis-eaters? 171.33.222.26 (talk) 14:23, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Beware the ides of... oops I forgot.[edit]

Hey Ken, did you forget the special report that you were supposed to issue yesterday? I know it's hard to manufacture fresh-sounding lies to report on, but you should at least have given it a go.

I look forward to your excuses. Perhaps somebody came down with a bad case of flu, or your sleep schedule didn't permit you to post. Or maybe you'll just memory hole the promise like you did for all your promises about the 50/75/100 page QE booklet. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 08:52, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Are you suggesting one of Ken's predictions has failed to come true. I'm still waiting for operation grassroots, operation afterburner, The Ides of March 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 the book for grade schoolers and all the other bollocks he comes out with. It doesn't even get a snigger anymore. StarFish (talk) 09:37, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Damn Jeeves. Why you gotta be bringin' up old shit? ---Inquisitor (talk) 09:47, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Because I suffer from the curse of remembering what happened last week. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 10:15, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

It's been rectified. His "authoress" (who's not too sure about "it's" vs. "its," but nobody said she was an editoress) has sent him a communiqué of terrifying import on the Ides of May. And it ends with kisses and a happy face. I wonder if her name is Dulcinea? Whoover (talk) 14:22, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Jesus, that was unimaginative even by his standards. Come on, Ken. You're not even trying. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:28, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
I wonder if the "authoress" is real, but is actually one of us just trolling Ken.--"Shut up, Brx." 14:37, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Doubt it, looking at the evidence she's completely fabricated. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:42, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Beyond pathetic[edit]

This is incredible. He actually went back and revised the old blog post, even though we already knew what it said. Compare and contrast this old version with new version. Not only did he get rid of the 5PM GMT crap, he also went and changed the dates round on when his fictitious authoress would be done with her work so he could claim his "special report" would be about that. Ken, your lies are ridiculously transparent at this point. Why are you doing this? What the hell are you going to do when you haven't got a book to publish? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 14:42, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

He'll claim he's very busy and is pursuing some exciting business opportunities.--"Shut up, Brx." 14:47, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Wow. That's weak. StarFish (talk) 15:08, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
He didn't post the comment, but soMe Damned Bear went to the original post and asked him where his big announcement was. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 16:10, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
LOL, "The Spring of 2013 is going to be an extremely irritating month for atheists and evolutionist." Not only does the title enlighten me to the new month of "Spring", apparently he will only irritate one evolutionist (Fergus, he is man-crushing again).--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:56, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
Ken, you know that feeling you get whenever you read this page? You know the one. That chill that runs up your spine when you go "Oh crap... did I really say that?", only to have it confirmed seconds later. Then that hot flush that spreads across you cheeks onto your forehead... then the feverish urgency you experience as your shaking fingers edit/delete/burn all traces of the evidence. Sucks, doesn't it? So why do you put yourself through it so regularly? The solution is obvious: stop being a dishonest shit that makes promises that you are mentally incapable of keeping. --Inquisitor (talk) 19:19, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

His latest post includes a note from a "creationist sweetheart," illustrated with a pic from Simple English Wikipedia. This one is too just too easy and I won't strike a low blow. Maybe we should have a punchline contest. Sun Tzu must have said, "feed your opponent enough lulz, and he might bust a gut and die." Whoover (talk) 00:35, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
There are times when sticking in a Picard Double Facepalm still wouldn't illustrate the level of Facepalm Kenthingy is generating. And that's just among CPs' sysops.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 16:01, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Oh look[edit]

The minute Patmac calls Ken out mysterious people are making demands on his time againimg and suddenly he'll no longer be "as active on the main page talk page" and his replies to Patmac will be brief.

He can't even come up with original excuses for running back to his bunny hole any more. PsyGremlinPraat! 22:34, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Some people tasked me to do stuff in 2012 and 2013 and some letter said some stuff so I'm gonna be doing some stuff with them. Hahaohwow.jpg. Real convincing, Ken. This stems from the discussion Patmac asked Conservative first about liberal christianity crap, and Conservative throws one question at another at him and demands he answers, while not answering him anyway. Waiting for Karajou to start acting like a man... AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 23:03, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

That's rich.[edit]

Karajou tells someone to act like a manimg. Oh, and to follow the rules. Not only that, he defends Conservative in the same section. What balls of irony he has! ROFL! AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:02, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

He's right though. He does treat everyone the same, he's ALWAYS a colossal douchewad. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:05, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
True, to a point that he does nothing to others with rights. He doesn't enforce "everything must be true and verifiable" on Andy, and Kenny is making troll comments literally before and after Karajou's comment in RC. Such monumental cowardice on display, it amuses me. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 17:16, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
He did join in the posse out to lynch Rob when he saw which way the tide of popular opinion was running. He knows which way the wind is blowing, that Popeye, which is to say always from Andy's arse. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:26, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
AlanE should realise by now that what earns the respect of the establishment there is how skillful you are at throwing your weight around and being petty. Markman knew this, and so was supported. AlanE appears to think that simply being in the right is enough. Brenden appears to have learnt the lesson, and I have high hopes for his advancement to fully fledged prick (in the nicest possible way, of course). DamoHi 21:25, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
It just blows my mind that truly good faith guys like AlanE who have been around for 5 years and really helped out get treated badly when children like Brendan run around growing into more and more transparent parodists. Jesus, even fundie weirdos like Daniel1212 who contribute shitloads of consonant content don't get embraced. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 23:56, 16 May 2013 (UTC)
If you're a reasonable open-minded person, then CP has no need for you. CP is revenge porn for losers who feel they've been kicked around by the liberal establishment. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:11, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
I'm actually pretty liberal myself. Brenden (talk) 00:32, 17 May 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, and good luck with this dickwadimg. ken has alresady reverted you and the last person to try to challenge kenny in this way had a lot more power than you and Nobs now edits here instead because kenny perma banned him. You're on your way out, say goodbye to all your 'friends' over at cp. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:08, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

On a side note, I just love how Karajou refers to them as "the Commandments." I picture him affecting a Charlton Heston "burning bush" voice as he reads those words aloud to himself. Junggai (talk) 09:20, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

And with total lack of irony kenny boy describes swabbyimg and conservapedia exactly. Oldusgitus (talk) 17:59, 17 May 2013 (UTC)

Conservatives are Always Right, Whichever Side They Take[edit]

Andy says gambling is for liberals, because it's bad. But it's different when Obama says it's not a great life strategy because that proves he's a Muslim and gambling is good because Muslims think it's bad. Of course if somebody tries to outlaw it in any context, we get screams of Nanny State! Whoover (talk) 00:10, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Only liberal suckers are gamblers. Good, god fearing conservatives own the casino. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 00:42, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Andy's making an un-conservative argument; gambling is uncoerced, voluntary taxation and the exercise of individual freedom. nobsYe shall all perish in flames - Kim Jong-un 02:22, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Not sure if Andy would yell "nanny state" if politicians attempt to outlaw gambling, given opposition is usually from social conservatives.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 04:01, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
I was gonna say that it's perfectly reasonable to oppose gambling personally but be against outlawing it, but then I realized Andy likely isn't capable of a nuanced position--"Shut up, Brx." 04:08, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Andy is actually right about lotteries being about getting money outta the poorimg. I guess in this case Andy's fundamentalism beats out his hatred for the poor. --Night Jaguar (talk) 05:21, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Key words: "...government-promoted "powerball" gambling...." Gambling isn't bad, but government-promoted (i.e., liberal) gambling is bad. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 18:57, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Ken's longest break yet[edit]

After having spent the last couple of weeks getting the shit kicked out of him on various talk pages, Ken decides to pack it in: "Due to various people wanting more of my time, I will not be reading any talk pages of Conservapedia in 2013, 2014 and 2015. In addition, I will not be posting to any talk pages of Conservapedia as well during this period."

Taking bets on how long that'll last. --Inquisitor (talk) 02:53, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

if he's not back in a week, I'll be surprised.
Unless Andy finally had enough of him, but decided to let him appear to be going of his own accord. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 04:20, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Yup, that was my immediate reaction. It really was getting a little ridiculous even for that site. Andy's not going to like the drop in page views though, given that the site is going to be a lot more boring without Ken's insanity around. Tacitus (talk) 04:52, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Well, Rafael quickly tweaksimg kenny's nose. I can't see the 'no post to talk page' lasting long in the face of this kind of provocation. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:18, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
This is weird, the completely anonymous -and the totally unrelated to Ken- author of the wildly successful Question Evolution! Campaign blog has also decided to stop responding to comments as well. What are the odds of that? --Inquisitor (talk) 07:00, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

Is this a sign of mental disintegration? Whoover (talk) 18:07, 18 May 2013 (UTC)

He's really going to great lengths to justify ignoring his critics. To the same critics he's trying to ignore. It's sad, but his entire life revolves around the attention he gets from RW. We are the only thing giving meaning to his wretched existence. --"Shut up, Brx." 18:33, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
"I will be recruiting someone else to handle responding to blog comments." Well, talk about giving the game away Ken. You finally admit that it's just you after all. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD memberModerator 18:41, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
That "Crazy drivers in Italy" video on his QE blog is a pretty accurate description of his brain at work... or perhaps the progress of his blog. I mean, does anyone else know what the point of that video could be? AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 19:13, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
He's always parroting weird movie clips he finds on youtube, if he's not just parroting vox day or shockofgoat directly. Bloke can't think for himself. I am curious to see how long this resolution to only post actual news on his blog lasts. I wonder if this is just his way of trying to get out of this obvious charade. I mean, it's not like he'll ever have any news to report. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:35, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
It's a way to get out of having to debate anyone since he confirmed that VivaYeshua isn't on "Shock of God's" chatroom anymore so nobody is there to "arrange" for a debate between "Conservative" and whoever obviously finds it impossible to follow his demands. I spoke with Nightmare (or some similar handle) a few days ago. He says he hasn't seen VivaYeshua in months. Remieres says he doesn't care about "Conservative's" debate demand. He's the only other sysop I ever see there on the rare times I can log on. So much for honesty. He just retreats to his intellectual bunny hole after rightly getting pounded for being cowardly and pridefully refusing to humble himself to God and people offering good counsel. What a sad person. Nate Keaton (talk) 20:22, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
Ill Nate, ill. The sad ones are swabbie and andy. And to a lesser extent I, and others, can be called sad for pointing at him. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:35, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
"I will not be reading any talk pages of Conservapedia" - it's not like he actually read anything on talk pages, anyway... ;) --Sid (talk) 21:39, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
This behaviour seems rather unusual to me. I wonder whether some family or someone have stepped in with an intervention and told him enough's enough? Ruddager (talk) 01:43, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
Na, it's standard Ken behaviour. He is a spineless child and pulls the "I'm too busy" whenever he backs himself into a wall. Acei9 02:54, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
If anyone stepped in at all (and if he stays away from the talk pages, as promised, he was definitely pushed) then it was Andy. Even someone as blind as Andy must realize that the CP talk pages have become little more than an exercise in Ken baiting. Perhaps it was Andy who was on the receiving end of a long-needed intervention, with someone pointing out that Ken is destroying what little chance there is left of CP ever being taken seriously by anyone. Tacitus (talk) 02:57, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

C-C-C-Combo Breaker![edit]

He already read and responds to a talk page post by Rafaelimg, but the response is in his bunny hole protected user space. He's still going on about debating, 15 questions, and that he's possibly more than one person. Dance for us, little man! AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 19:48, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

Memory holed within seconds. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:34, 19 May 2013 (UTC)

No, no, no[edit]

Ken's not reading anything you sayimg Fergus, honestly he's not. Oldusgitus (talk) 06:29, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Kenneth D DeMyer, your lack of machismo knows no bounds. Fergus Mason has machismo, but do you ? I think not! Vivayeshua was banned from ShockofGods chatroom, I was there when it happened. I will happily debate you, even though I am more of a creationist than an evolutionist. Naca (talk) 08:57, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

The only one who cares is you, Ken[edit]

People wonder why I drink.</sarcasm> Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 10:11, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

We should probably thank Ken for summing up CP's philosophy in a concise soundbite, "If we don't like you, you don't get to speak, regardless of the substance of your contributions." Cheers Kenneth. -- Iscariot Andy Schlafly for Congress 2012! 07:09, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Terry Hurlbut, recovering homosexual[edit]

Is it just me, or does Terry's last comment imply he's had some gay sex?

"I remember enough to assert that homosexuality is a developmental arrest. You and I “developed” per the usual case. Adult homosexuals arrested their development."

Used to be gay, then grew out of it? Carlaugust (talk) 01:40, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

I didn't read it that way but it is a slightly strange hypothesis. It would imply that we all go through a gay stage and those with "arrested development" stay there. However I don't remember it like that. As long as I've wanted to have sex with people I wanted to do it with girls.--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 03:19, 20 Ma

So by this theories us Bisexuals are...?--MikallakiM 07:00, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Either stealth homosexuals (or heterosexuals), or indecisives that can't pick one or the other, depending on which extreme end of the spectrum you want to slam against. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 10:14, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Maybe Terry's misunderstood the term 'Anal Retentive'.--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 10:27, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Terry's "theory" that gay marriage Will result in empty schools is one if the dumbest things it has ever been my misfortune to rest. PsyGremlinKhuluma! 10:39, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
But it would just mean empty public schools. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:23, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
E.g. Psy's bafflement. Why do homosexuals want to "recruit" children again? I know they're the biblical™ equivalent of child molesters, pederasts, bestiphiles, satanic through and through. Do they want to have sex with them? Eat them? Build an army of gay children to further oppress christians? None of the actual arguments put forth makes a single bit of sense. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 15:39, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
Sounds like he's been reading too much Freud recently. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 15:45, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Where does Grayson Perry fit into the hypothesis (or 'Miss W######h' for that matter) 171.33.222.26 (talk) 15:43, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

To the topic: I think this has to do with the sociological phenomenon that boys become aware that girls have cooties sometime after the sexes are segregated in primary school such as has happened when Dr. Hurlbut went to school, (do they do that now?). Eventually this goes away and boys view girls with desire...the gay boys (obviously) get "stuck" and the girls always have cooties and are icky, the only other sexual choice open to them are their best buds who have no cooties. Since they are "stuck" they always see 11 year old boys as their peers and "recruit" them. This is not my opinion but a guess at Terry's view of the topic. I have been out and open since the olden days, 1979. C®ackeЯ 16:29, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
You mean when boys realise that it isn't cooties girls have, it's cootchies?--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 23:45, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Could someone with an account over there ask Terry where the statistics posted come from? I'd be very curious to know. The only one that makes any sense to me is that 79% of gay men have had sex with someone under 19, which, given average ages of loss of virginity & AOC laws makes a lot of sense. I'm also curious as to his assertion that it has to do with tolerance. Ken used to have that claim on his homosexuality article until I challenged it by going and getting the book he was referring to. There has been no actual evidence to suggest that tolerance of homosexuality increases incidence. It only increases openness and awareness. Ayzmo (talk) 19:14, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

Those stats are plagerized from the hilariously misleading/lying/out-of-date "study" by Frank Joseph. Most of the stats on there are from the 1980's and earlier, and if you dig through each citation, you'll find that they are either (a) discredited, (b) HUGELY misleading as to what the real statistic is, or (c) outright lies. For example, that "under 19" statistic comes from a 1979 study, which, like you said, is trotted out as a scary (!) fact, until you realize that it is probably true that most people have had relations with someone under 19. Carlaugust (talk) 19:44, 20 May 2013 (UTC)

I think I can explain (well, as best as anyone can explain anything Hurlbut-related). Freud postulated that disorders with narcissistic features were the result of arrested development due to unresolved issues in childhood. Hypochondriasis is an often-cited example. This doesn't mean that everyone went through a phase where they thought they were sick against all evidence, it just means that all people with those concerns allegedly had some common set of childhood issues. What Terry is doing is dragging out something called "sexual narcissism," which has been used by various right-wing cranks over the years in an attempt to explain homosexuality and/or transgenderism. TL;DR: Terry done fucked up Freud.--江斯顿What is it now? 04:44, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Pray for victims[edit]

He pulled the same stunt after the Port-au-Prince earthquake, and again after the Fukushima meltdown. Andy just refuses to post charity links, no matter what.

A Little Tidbit About Fundamentalist Thinking[edit]

As someone who grew up in the evangelical and fundamentalist world, Andy's viewpoint is certainly not unique. The large majority of Christians, including fundamentalist Christians, give money and donations through charity, some will outright supply time and labor, however all will believe prayer is as, if not more, powerful than their physical efforts. It makes sense if you believe in an all-powerful benevolent, yet harsh god who demands justice (and all people are collectively sinners). There is among this a subset of thought that prayer is paramount over any material aid, as I was told once, "what good does all the food and shelter do people, if their souls are hellbound?" and "it is better to be homeless and starving and saved, than well-off and damned". They would pray for the victims recovery, but in the context that they would accept salvation, and believe by doing just this they do more than anyone supplying actual aid.

I would argue though there is another motivation among some Christians, and those types are best represented by Hurlburt. These are Objectivist Christians, who use the principles of Objectivism to justify not giving out charity, believing it would just foster and enable dependance and bad behavior. It is a selfish belief that allows them to effectively ignore the Christian theological belief that supplying need to the poor and destitute is the duty of the believer.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 16:34, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

I have to admit, I've never understood the "pray for them" attitude. If some schmuck in New Jersy doesn't ask God to find a little girl trapped in rubble, He's just going to let her die? What a prick. "Well, I was going to let the town be a ruin forever and all those who inhabit it die cold and alone...but since Andy asked nicely, I guess I'll inspire Obama to send FEMA." What's the point of a "divine plan" if anybody can talk you out of it? Carlaugust (talk) 17:42, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
But that's at the heart of the prayer controversy. As someone once said "You cannot petition the lord with prayer", except, of course, that's exactly what those of a religious bent do every day. I've heard the "you don't get it unless you ask for it line" but, taking the "we're all god's children position" I don't refuse to give my child what he needs just because he doesn't ask for it. Especially if he's trapped under a building. "What's that, Patrick, you're trapped. Well I'm not going to help you until you ask." Doesn't play, somehow. Innocent Bystander (talk) 17:58, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
I think my mom use to say, or imply at least, that God only does what the prayer asks if it's what he wants… even though she was also fond of quoting or paraphrasing Matthew 18:19, and that makes prayer fairly pointless. Even as a kid i didn't really understand it, but i rolled with it anyways because, hey, not everything's bound to make sense to me, right? (talk to a) Nihilist 18:06, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

I think everyone's being too harsh on Andy. It's like he says: he's just too darned Jesus-like to give to charity. Charity is well enough for other folks, but obviously Andy can do more good by prayer alone than he could ever do with prayer + charity. Phiwum (talk) 19:36, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

I have a question...[edit]

Maybe I'm just not well enough up on my new testament, but are there actually any incidents in there of Jesus praying for someone who was in need rather than helping them? I have the feeling Andy is talking out of his arse. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:30, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

If he did, that brings up yet -another- good question; what the heck was Jesus doing praying to himself? "Dear me, if I could find it in my heart to help these people, I would really appreciate it. Thanks me! Love, myself." Carlaugust (talk) 19:43, 21 May 2013 (UTC)
I am not aware of a single instance of Jesus praying for any individual. I am not aware of a single instance of Him owning any personal property beyond His clothes and shoes, so He also probably did not give charity. He certainly relied on it to survive. It is now my belief that Andy believes he knows Jesus better than the Gospels describe Him. His hubris is appalling. Nate Keaton (talk) 19:53, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

Andy Case Study #498[edit]

Noticed this in the logs from a few days ago:

  1. WilliamWB does a massive cleanup of Conservapedia proven right
  2. Andy notices, a week later, that an entry was removed somewhere along the line, adds it back, reverts WilliamWB's edit, and blocks him for 2 years.
  3. Andy realizes his reversion re-removed the entry (because WilliamWB didn't even remove it), then adds it back, again.
  4. Andy realizes his mistake and unblocks WilliamWB oops that would require Andy to admit he made a mistake, so it didn't happen. Oh well. Justice is served!

Andy, never change. Cow...Hammertime! 20:06, 21 May 2013 (UTC)

"Quantum Christiaity"[edit]

Hard to add links from my current browser, but as a follow up to yesterday's sorry behavior by Andy, he's given me a new "Conservative Insight". Jesus shows us that it's "Christian" to pray for those in need instead of assisting through direct action (at least when you're not conjuring loaves & fish, curing disease, raising dead friends, or pulling drowning disciples out of the sea). However, it's also a praiseworthy example of being "Christian" for Kevin Durant to donate a million dollarsto help tornado victims when non-Christians would just stand on the sidelines and do nothing (which is totally not like standing on the sidelines and praying). Since Andy Schlafly couldn't possibly be a selfish, lazy, stingy hypocrite who expects taxpayer money to help these people in their emergency instead of charity, there must be an explanation as logical as the Bible, and then it hit me:

The answer is QUANTUM CHRISTIANITY! You're a great Christian if you help with particles (actual material assistance) or waves ("I'm praying for you guys. A lot. Really."). The part that makes it logical is that the "Christian" nature of the act is determined by the observer, and since Andy is doing the obvserving, the outcome is always as it should be.--DinsdaleP (talk) 15:03, 22 May 2013 (UTC)

Coming up with a person's typeface equivalent is an awesome game. Andy's definitely Comic Sans - it's an ostensibly well-designed typeface, but one that begged to be grotesquely misused because of a goofy nature that could only ever be appropriate in the rarest of circumstances. Ken is Papyrus - it attempts, and fails, to be exotic and lend an air of mystery, yet is so clumsy and overplayed that nobody with the least savvy takes it seriously - relegated to the new age bookstores his cult's literature belongs in. I'm naturally Hoefler & Frere Jones' Didot - perhaps the most elegant Didone ever cast. Ace is their Knockout Middleweight - whimsical and humorous, yet powerfully frank. Sterile is their Verlag Extra Light - pure and open, oozing intelligence and sophistication reminiscent of deco letterforms, yet doggedly versatile. Genghis is H&FJ Gotham - venerable and strong of will, yet always refreshing - the typeface that won both of Obama's terms. Psy is Futura Extra Bold Condensed - bitey, powerful, well considered, distinctive, requires a wide berth. And of course, Human is Eurostile Demi, the typeface his logo is set in - attempted as a ham-handed substitute for Helvetica, Frutiger, or Univers, yet requires mastery to set well - a familiar yet distinctive workhorse that needs breathing room for its charming eccentricities to shine.

Picture any of Andy's online classes, science posts, Lenski correspondence or his legal briefs, and it's a perfect fit. Karajou would be Stencil, of course.

Now, for those guys. I don't think Andy is Comic Sans, I can see where you're coming from but I can do one better (I think). He's more Qarmic Sans - it looks like you can just about take it seriously, but when you try to do it you really, really can't - Comic Sans is used enough that I kind of can. Anger Bear, Stencil is fine for him. Takes himself too seriously to realise that the army probably doesn't even use that any more, if they ever in fact used it.

Though it's perfectly respectable and continues to be appropriately used as a display face, mostly still in Germany, I avoid considering Fraktur because of its difficult context. "The Fraktur typefaces were particularly heavily used during the time of Nazism, when they were initially represented as true German script, the press scolded for its frequent use of "Roman characters" under "Jewish influence" and German émigrés urged to use only "German script".

Is it possible to create a plug in or utility that can change the font of Talk page renderings based on the signatures? I know I could do it in VBA using the HTML file as input, but that's inelegant.

Yeah you can do it in pure CSS with CSS3 vendor codes per browser. You could also do it pretty easily in jQuery with simple CSS1 rules. Either method is solely browser side and, at least for RW's purposes, dependent on what's in the font stack on your own computer.

Main Page Talk[edit]

Given that the peons are in open revolt on Main Page Talk every time Andy opens his mouth, how long do you think it will be before Andy relents and starts letting Ken use the Talk Pages again? More importantly, will it be before or after he screws up his Texas job in front of the courts?--Stunteddwarf Jabba de Chops 14:55, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Ken would be finished were Andy a completely gutless and a miserable manager. Ken's also been in open revolt for more than a year now, taking progressively bigger shits on the faiths of nearly all CP admin and just making a shameful mockery of conservatism, christianity, and even his cult of creationism, since he's now become such a hate-filled extremist that he's a christian in name only. I predict Ken will return, first tepidly, then very quickly with greater contempt for every single person he interacts with, and Andy will sit there like a little bitch letting a mentally ill person with the emotional capacity of an infant and the lack of intellectual integrity typical of creationists, which is even gleefully less honest than Andy's brand of reality.

Andy and CAIR are demanding investigations into the FBI killing of Ibragim Todashev. CAIR thinks he was killed because he was a Muslim.

Andy's ignoring the FBI's claim that Tamarlan was involved in the murder that Andy says Obama is making the FBI and Boston PD cover up. That's justified because nobody's shown Andy the DNA test.

The premise of the article is mind-boggling: that racism is an outgrowth of belief in evolution (this is why Ken's head-scratcher about "liberals" makes sense to him). Calling a black person or an aboriginal an "ape" is not about appearance -- it's about Darwin. So when the Koran declares Jews to be apes it's because of Mohammed's reading of Darwin, I guess.

I once worked for a company with a lot of saberim on the roster. Sorry I can't spell that in Hebrew, but it's the plural of "prickly pear cactus" and means native Israelis. They would call each other "Adam" in the same kind of contexts that a US English speaker would use "man" or "dude." They did have an interesting sense of humor. My boss, in a meeting, once asked the group, "What do we do now, slap our asses and shout 'hurrah'?" That may be a post-Christian idiom, though.

Andy gets destroyed[edit]

I love it when Andy tries to politicize sports as he does here [1]img. Even though Andy is a professional at making broad and moronic proclamations about topics he knows nothing about, his fore into the world of athletics is perhaps the most telling. Here his ignorance is made abundantly clear to even the most causal fan, as this kind of sports talk is grounded in inarguable statistics. Although I wouldn't be shocked if he claimed that liberals were cooking the stats a la global warming. Just like his belief that Chavez died three months before he actually died, this kind of paranoid fantasy is unique to Andy. I wonder if he brings up his feelings about Lebron James to people at his church, I can't imagine how they'd react. --Marlow (talk) 19:01, 31 May 2013 (UTC)

The fact that Andy thinks this statement about Tiger Woods belongs in an encyclopedia really says it all: "He is perhaps the most self-centered and overpromoted favorite of the liberal media in the world."img That's the second sentence in the Tiger Woords article, right after his name and that he is a professional golfer. --Night Jaguar (talk) 01:27, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
I remember the early naive version of CP, when the homeskolars were creating cursory history articles and compiling lists of terms (which could have been replicated with proper use of categories. Andy was against large articles because too much detail made it more like liberal Wikipedia. Of course, that didn't apply to Ken's monstrous articles.

Not really. smite/smote/smitten is analogous to write/wrote/written. In careful writing, "keeps getting wrote" seems out of place, and "writed" is the kind of thing a young child would say, while still in the stage of mis-applying the regularities of language.

A) A website and B) A lot less controversial/offensive than certain other targets which the SPLC will likely pursue.

The more I think about it, I don't see you as a parodist, Brenden. You're a concern troll.

It wouldn't surprise me if he has someone watching him when he ties his shoelaces and correcting him when he makes a mistake.

What I love with Anger Bear's First Amendment rights rants, is that yes, they have the absolute right to post their bigoted crap, just as people have the absolute right to point at them and laugh for posting their bigoted crap. He just handily forgets the latter part. Ironically, Karajerk probably has no problem with David Barton saying Christians shouldn't drink Starbucks, because the latter supports gay marriage.

I don't care as much about Kara's weirdo rants as I do about his semicolon use, and it has bothered me for a long time.

I was going to comment how utterly weak sauce Patmac's attempt at "intimidation" was, then I saw Kara's response in the link a few replies above.

And then you, in all seriousness, threaten to turn the Man of Mystery in to British Immigration so he can't gain access to the country as a "persona non grata," and refer Andy to the SPLC. Anyhow, I echo BMcP's kudos - there's no telling what's going to get stuck in Karaturd's craw. You managed to get him going on this deliciously absurd First Amendment kick. Love it!

He may not even know about the FBI incident. But it was still a silly thing to threaten.

Lovely Iranians[edit]

The new photo in the 'Ethnic Groups Gallery' on CP's main page is of two lovely girls (OMG I sound like Father Ted) from Iran. Is some subversive at work, showing CP-ites that Iranians are human beings after all and will not necessarily benefit from being bombed? Cardinal Fang (talk) 00:15, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

The "Ethnic Groups Gallery" is another baby of Joaquin Martinez, who never met a Middle Eastern dictator he didn't like. So, yeah it could be part of Martinez pushing his agenda which is quite different (but just as loopy) as that of everyone else on CP.
By the way, am I the only one who finds the idea of an "Ethnic Groups Gallery" a bit disturbing? At the least, it seems rather old-fashioned and quaint. I can imagine that a 19th century anthropologist would be interested in compiling something like that. Spud (talk) 13:58, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

@Spud: Yes, the idea of a gallery of ethnic groups is quite old-fashioned. Perhaps Joaquin could post some more tasteful pictures of ladies from around the world so we can decide one way or the other. Cardinal Fang (talk) 23:22, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, have a look at JoMar's attempt to catalogue and classify all humanityimg. You might find a few more tasty birds in there who tickle your fancy. Mention must be made of the use of Mother Theresa's picture on that page. Of course, you can easily identify any and all Albanians by the blue and white saris and wimples they wear, not to mention their deeply wrinkled faces. Spud (talk) 13:08, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

Whoover, I smell what you stepping in. I had an atheist girlfriend who self-identified as a Jew because she was ethnically Jewish.

Someone I know well follows Messianic Judaism. Frankly, I have no idea what the supposed difference is between it and Pentecostal Christianity and whoever wrote the WP page seems equally puzzled. So far as I can see, MJ's emphasise the Jewish heritage of Jesus but their theology is otherwise pretty much mainstream Protestant, whether they call themselves Christians or not. Cardinal Fang (talk) 00:02, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Well, from an outsider's perspective the granular divisions between sects can be nearly undetectable. Yet to members of the in-group the divisions appear as huge chasms. The model tends to hold true for any hobby or activity that attracts a passionate following. It's like pointing out to a fan that the only difference between two football teams is the color of the uniforms. --Inquisitor (talk) 00:14, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
Messianic Jewery keeps the trappings of Judaism, but adds on top of it the beliefs of Christianity. The vast majority reject replacement theology, and the abrogation of religious laws that came with such. As such, they often keep kosher, wear tifilim, and engage in all of the various ritual judaism that many jews do not. One of the major recruiting tactics, like the hasids they emulate, is an attempt to use ritual judaism to indoctrinate. They typically reject the "trinity," in favor of the view of Jesus not as the literal son of god, but rather the Messiah. From a flowchart perspective, I would say that the "are you a jew" flowchart starts with "do you think you are?" and then, in America, proceeds to "do you believe that Jesus was more special than any random guy who could have said what he said?"

Overrated Sports Stars[edit]

Here is a great picture of overrated sports star LeBron James, whom Andy has been strangely silent on after the Game 7 win. I'm used to him pouncing with all the reasons that only 32 points, 4 assists and 8 rebounds in a 99-76 game proves he's overrated. (I expected him to open with "real stars never need a game 7.") It'll come. I'm confident. Whoover (talk) 21:52, 4 June 2013 (UTC)

Could have something to do with stuff like this. --Inquisitor (talk) 01:56, 5 June 2013 (UTC)

I mean I think for most people it's something to do with this: super douchey thing to do. Also I really think the evidence doesn't support that James is the best player ever; it's just a reality that he doesn't dominate the game like Jordan did - he might come to because his game is improving. But yeah he's clearly the best player today - Durant - who I would say is second - just isn't there; although, he might develop more too.--Iduan (talk) 16:57, 6 June 2013 (UTC)

Oh Ken, you never learn[edit]

Gee, another post highlighting Rationalwiki? And how we lack machismo. This from the guy who consistently runs away from any offer to debate him/her/them/it? Projection much?

I was going to pull up a comparative graph between us and your little "blog" but sadly "historical data not available for sites ranked > 100,000." Well, let's look at some other stats shall we (for what they're worth, coming from Alexa):

  • Rationalwiki: Rank: 35,295 US Rank: 13,286 Reputation: 2,675
  • Ken's blog: Rank: 2,258,657 US Rank: 368,865 Reputation: 44
  • Conservapedia: Rank: 73,814 US Rank: 26,473 Reputation: 2,829

Oh yes, and it seems most of those 44 sites are you link whoring yourself, such as questionevolution.blogspot.de and questionevolution.blogspot.ru.

And looking at this graph, you might want to have a chat with Andy about his site's complete lack of machismo. I mean, a bunch of fat nerds are kicking his ass. What's up with that?

Nah, just typical Kendoll behaviour. If he gets his arse spanked enough he just totally runs away from all discussion. Hence his 90 day/3 year sabbaticals and mystery illnesses.

As for the possibility of him putting any IRL effort into building something like that, I think we can jot it down as another self indulgent fantasy from the same man who fantasies about ruling over the capital wasteland with legions of raider minions through the power of his basement generator and copy of Ayn Rand for dummies. As for the peer review panel, I daresay it will either fold and run for the generator room the moment people start bringing actual science on their arses, or fall victim to a parodist creationist theory and end up humiliated publicly.

We get after Andy for the racism of going after Obama (although he'd probably be just as deranged over any Democrat in office), but this seems quite a bit more blatant. --Kels (talk) 01:13, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

The only appropriate comment is "ewww." The only rational reaction is to do what it takes to shake the image. For me it was armagnac. Whoover (talk) 01:51, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
This is tosser we are talking about. Racist overtones are part of the standard hurlbut package to the point where its no longer worthy of comment, same way brain bleaching creepiness are part of the Ed Poor package (though Hurly seems to be aping this aspect with this comment as well).
As for his anger surrounding these fraudulent sexy white ladies, either he is so anal he feels compelled to thoroughly investigate any and all spam emails to find the true origin and purpose of such communiques (possibly out of a view that one of his many, many, many personal nemeses are trying to set him up) which suggests a huge level of paranoia and hilarious naivety of things like spam emails, or he is just another far right psycho who is at heart a dirty, stupid little man who jumped for a promise of sexytime and feels humiliated about it to this day. Either option is possible in my opinion Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 10:22, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
You might be right. IIRC there was a lovely mail from in the ZB admin group, where it turned out somebody had created an account on Creationwiki, using the name of a Japanese porn star. He was convinced this was a set up a honey trap for the founder of Creationwikwi. Ah, here it is. I do like his last line in the original post (which was lost when set up online): "This shows that CreationWiki is much easier to find than some of us might have supposed." Um... sure that's the fucking point of having a website?? --PsyGremlinSermā! 10:53, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Again the dilemma, was this just paranoia or did he recognize the name from the super sekrit naughty VHS collection under his bed? Honestly though, I think a lot of flinganus's issues could be partially explained by him repeatedly falling for online scams and then blaming it on the satanic leftist untermench rather than admit he was duped. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 14:18, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Like this Terry?

You know, I think we've been ignoring the bigger humiliation for Chucky in all this. Isn't admitting you aren't rich the ultimate humiliation for a Randroid? It's quite amusing that he fails his own test for the measure of a man. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 13:14, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

He would likely claim either it was all the EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL muslamic antichrist's taxation conspiracy against him or that his lack of wealth is a sign of his selfless sacrifice to spread the wingnut gospel instead of becoming the multi millionaire he could easily become if he tried. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 14:18, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Typical wingnut paranoia to assume that he's being targeted . This is a copy of some of the ones I got on my Skype account. They are so obviously bogus that I block and delete on sight. However, Terry seems to know that they are "wanting me to send money to prove my affection for them", which makes me wonder for how long was he interacting with them? 17:54, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Rat out Obama ...[edit]

Eh. I personally tend to think that the current leaks are more defensible and even praiseworthy than what Manning did, and I don't think that Bush was a better president than Obama. That's not to say that CP isn't hypocritical, of course, but that these two particular situations aren't particularly clear evidence of hypocrisy to me. Phiwum (talk) 11:38, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

That is weird given I haven't edited CP in over a year. Acei9 01:18, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Like Andy, Ken doesn't read articles either. "The joke sport of 'rhythmic gymnastics' has been added to the 2020 Olympic Games roster"img according to Cowardly Ken, but the article he cites clearly states that rhythmic gymnastics is one of the eight sports vying for a spot.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 14:32, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Hey Ken, if rhythmic gymnastics is such a joke, let's see you and Andy do this. Just don't let Creepy Uncle Ed watch it. --PsyGremlinSermā! 15:08, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Credit where it's due chaps. The inner circle may be a bit extreme but they are clearly experts in their field. Andy for example is able to thoroughly disprove relativity, something that the otherwise great physicist Fred Hoyle was never able to do(He does seem to miss the point that Hoyle's rejection of the big bang theory was because he was so convinced in his atheism that he hated the theory for providing a moment of creation). Ken will be, by the end of the year, world famous for disproving evolutionary pseudoscience once and for all, and now he has provided the blueprint for the resolution of two of the British Isles most lingering problems; If the UK were to remove Darwin from his money and the Republic of Ireland admit they were wrong and beg to be part of the UK again, the world would be a better place. With these insights I would not bet against Ken at least being nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 and to share the Nobel Prize for physics with Andy in the near future--Patmac (talk) 15:47, 10 June 2013 (UTC)

Is CP blocking my IP?[edit]

I've noticed that, for the past two weekends, I can't to CP from my iPad when I'm at my partner's apartment. My Spider-Senses tell me the IP is blocked. Is there someone who can look at their IP blocks and see if 98.252.51.22 is blocked? MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 11:22, 9 June 2013 (UTC)

Nothing in the logs. But if you can't access it, then you're blocked at server level (503 error?) and that won't show in the logs. --PsyGremlinSpeak! 11:35, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Partner? Is it a beautiful, long-haired creationist girl? Faced with mysteries dark and vast/statements just seem vain at last. 14:21, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Handsome, short-haired evolutionist gentleman, thank you very much. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 10:44, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
Somebody missed the memo. If you're blocked at the server, it will merely refuse the connection and you won't get any http response, error or otherwise. Whoover (talk) 14:55, 9 June 2013 (UTC)
Honestly, we went out for the day not longer after I asked, and I didn't remember to check this until I got to work this morning. I'll be at his apartment again tomorrow afternoon and will check to see exactly what happens then. (All I can remember is "I can't get there"...) MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 10:44, 10 June 2013 (UTC)
I simply got no response, not an error. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 10:15, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
If they've blocked an IP address at server level, you'll get an HTTP 403 "forbidden" error - I'm not sure if some fancy-dan tablet browsers and suchlike hide all those confusing responses from you though. DeltaStarSenior SysopSpeciationspeed! 11:52, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
There is any number of ways to server block someone using Apache mods. When I get server blocked from CP, it's because I mistakenly hit the same page too many times in one second. That gives me a timeout. I think that's what Andy was doing for the wide swaths of IP addresses he was blocking back when TK was pissing in his ear. Bear, is your partner clickbotting?

Unless he has a virus on his computer, no. He's not a techie. MDB (the MD is for Maryland, the B is for Bear) 11:53, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
mod_security has two distinct actions: deny returns a 403 and drop refuses the connection. Whoover (talk) 14:22, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Andy uses a cPanel based system on Dreamhost - do you know what the standard response is to a perceived DDOS and what the timeouts are? My IP address hasn't changed but after a few months Apache is no longer refusing connections. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 14:25, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

More Whatthefuckery from Schlafly[edit]

Unlike the State Department, the NSA is part of the military. If Bush said, "bad guy in Yemen calls bad guy in New York who calls other bad guy in Boston, and we can connect them because we have all the call records in a database," the right would be calling anyone who objected Mooselem-lovers. Because there's a commie in the White House, it's "domestic spying." The right has all the behavioral subtlety of a pigeon in a Skinner box. Whoover (talk) 16:05, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Missed it all. "Homosexuality and ear infections" is worth the price of admission, I must admit. Whoover (talk) 15:54, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Another obvious parodist popped up last week but has gone silent. Watching the dance of the parodists over there is really the only entertainment left. Ken's crap is just tedious and the few other serious editors have gotten boring. But watching parodists welcoming new parodists with subtle winks or "reporting" other parodists, blocking and unblocking them -- all the while Andy not having the slightest clue -- that's what CP is all about. Whoover (talk) 17:11, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Another explanation is that he knows full well what's going on, just like he knows Ken is off his nut. The parodists do a merry job of making it look like Schlafly's blog is still a going concern. They block each other and clean up wandalism, and since no one is ever going to be promoted to sysop ever again they do it for no reward. He's probably overjoyed that people still bother to lick his arse. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 19:42, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
I reckon they know damn well that most accounts over there are parodists. Sure you get a few, like AugustO who I think is genuine, who are not but they are well aware that markman is a parodist. But he is a useful idiot, as Jeeves says, blocking and cleaning up vandalism and saving andy and swabbie the trouble. Then one day he'll overstep the line and swabbie will banhammer him and that will be the end of markman. Oldusgitus (talk) 22:00, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
