If you don't have anything nice to say[edit]

Say something bad about liberals. I'm not sure what Andy is thinking. First, there's no link. What's bridgegate? (Apparently, Christie shut down some lanes to cause traffic problems to push a bridge deal (or something)) What does it have to do with conversion therapy? Is Andy in favor of "bridgegate"? Does Andy not want Christie's political career to end? Who knows? I just thought it was one of the more enigmatic and impotent MPR posts Andy has made in a while. Occasionaluse (talk) 20:33, 8 January 2014 (UTC)

Re: "bridgegate"—Word is that some of Christie's top aides had multiple lanes of the George Washington Bridge shut down to punish the Democratic mayor of the town just off the Jersey side of the bridge for not endorsing Christie's re-election. --transResident Transfanform! 21:23, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Bridgegate's a big deal. The GOP's only competitive presidential candidate for 2016 has been unmasked as a lying, vindictive bully. Or, as he seems to be taking the "throw the aide under the bus" lane, an ineffective leader whose aides put state residents at peril without his knowledge, which is not much better. Andy is torn because Christie is a RINO (he thanked Obama for help after hurricane Sandy), which is why his opinion is more confused than usual. Whoover (talk) 22:19, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Throwing an aid under the bus is something politicians on both sides of the aisle do with sadistic glee; it is so common it is barely worth mentioning.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 17:48, 9 January 2014 (UTC)
It should be noted that because of the lane closures, emergency vehicles had a hard time getting through, and one woman died due to the ambulance being unable to get to the hospital. --Seth Peck (talk) 17:57, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

Well, I'd suggest one would merely make a general thread for this on the Good Old Brawl Bar but hey, this is merely a post to test if my new signature works.EDIT:Crud.--The Madman (talk) 00:00, 10 January 2014 (UTC)The Madman

This is why we need transparency. If you could look back at the period where Bridgegate happened and see either, Christie saying "Fuck those guys, hurt 'em anyway you know how" or Bridget Anne Kelly taking her own initiative without a word from him, you could rationally decide "OK, yeah, Christie is a bullying fuck" or "Wow, Bridget really thought she was God Emperor of The World, bye bye asshole". But we don't get to see any of that, we never do. They're not lovers, they're politicians, so why can't their every meeting be recorded for the consideration of citizens? When we record people doing safety critical work (e.g. we record airliner cockpit conversations) we see two things, either of which, I would argue, would be beneficial enough to justify doing this to politicians. Firstly they stop fucking lying about everything. Knowing that there's a record the people being recorded just tell it how they remember when asked. And secondly, they fly straighter. Not 100% straight, people aren't robots, but they cut out the worst of the bullshit, which can be enough to make a big difference in outcomes, and because we can see what's left we can adjust policy according to how they actually behave, not how we'd like to imagine a robot would behave if given their job. Without seeing that we're blind as to what we should fix. Tialaramex (talk) 11:02, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Trouble is it's always been notoriously difficult to record these sorts of things. An aircraft cockpit is an enclosed controlled space, easy to monitor. Politics isn't. Ajkgordon (talk) 15:54, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it can't be done: think about the "water cooler" chat and bathroom/toilet conversations, not to mention just bumping in to each other in the corridors? Scream!! (talk) 16:26, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
I recall a Terry Pratchett book where all the politicians were thrown in jail as soon as they were elected, because it saved having to do it later. Not only does it make perfect sense, it would be easy to monitor them in there. Just a thought.--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 18:47, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
Part of the reason we only learned about it now is that they thought they could get away with it by using personal email addresses. Here's some background about US transparency laws for the curious. I strongly agree with Rachel Maddow that US people should support their local papers, which are where things like this usually get their legs. Justbrowsing (talk) 09:25, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

"Hand of God" photo[edit]

Can someone point out the hand in that photo? I think it looks like a tree-stump with a face and unruly red hair, exhaling luminous vapor. The vengeful spirit of Thor's Oak, perhaps. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 06:03, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Err ... what photo? Scream!! (talk) 07:07, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
It looks like a lemur hand puppet to me. Whoover (talk) 07:17, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
(edit conflict) This photo from this MPR item. Personally, I see a hand but I'm betting that at any other angle, it'll look like something completely different. Say, a larch for example.--"Shut up, Brx." 07:19, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Tax protesters go medical[edit]

Oh look, an exciting new opportunity for wingnuts to get themselves finesimg. Thanks, Karajou. Does he really think that a provision in the affordable healthcare act would actually negate the whole act and that nobody would notice? Hell, can't he read what it actually says? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 18:27, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

2013 was a great year for Conservapedia...[edit]

... as visitors were "flock[ing] to Conservapedia for content." Oh shoot, wrong prediction. In fact, 2013, wasn't a good year at all. The first indicator was that Andy bragged the last time about a record for "unique visitor traffic" in Dec 2012 - and then kept silence about these statistics for last year (See PsyGremlin's CP-Monitor for an interesting summary of this point). I cannot say anything about the actual numbers of unique visitors, but we are able to draw some conclusions:

Total number of views[edit]

Views per Year

Using the wayback machine, I gathered the total number of views for Conservapedia from its own cp:Special:Statistics. As Andy said in 2011, "Television is losing its relevancy, as people flock to Conservapedia for content". Seemingly not any longer. Roughly 30 million, that's the number of page-views wikipedia gets. In a month. For its Danish version alone. Really, it takes three hours to get as many views as Conservapedia got in the whole year of 2013. And if you really want to compare Conservapedia with a television station, you have to look for one with ca. 80,000 viewers a day....

The traffic of 2011 and 2012 was driven by click-bots, which probably used the TOR network, creating an illusion of numerous unique viewers. When Andy disallowed TOR users from viewing his group-blog (in late 2012, I think), the numbers dwindled.

It didn't help neither that Andy made Conservapedia virtually invisible for many of his more dedicated followers...

Active editors[edit]

Using the late TK's handbook on suffocating a wiki, Andy was able to replicate TK's success from 2010 in 2013.

Active editorship tanked in the months up to November, but has rapidly recovered. Can anybody explain why the figures appear to oscillate like that? --Tony Sidaway (talk) 05:43, File:Ae.001.1000.png10 January 2014 (UTC)

Active Editors at CP
The number of active editors is very sensitive to an influx of spammers and trolls, which to a certain extend depends on CP's current policy of account creation and instant blocking. E.g., Markman blocked editors before they could make even one edit and enter the list of active editors.
The graph shows active editors (over 90 days), stratified by the number of days they have been editing (e.g., 2561 for Aschlafy, 1161 for Ed Poor, 127 for Markman): While you find quite a fluctuation in the number of active users who commented for one or two days, the number of active heavy users is going down for the last two and a half years.
--larron (talk) 14:37, 11 January 2014 (UTC)
Active Editors at CP
There is an interesting difference between the end of 2010 and the end of 2013: TK in 2010 made it impossible to become an editor at Conservapedia, while Andy in 2013 prevents unwanted individuals from even seeing his side. --larron (talk) 22:36, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Edits and Editors[edit]

Edits per namespace at CP
Edits per namespace at RW

Not much is happening at Conservapedia. Indeed, the number of edits is just 30% of RW's:

Editors by group at CP
Editors by group at RW

And editing is done by the usual suspects, each of whom has his little kingdom which isn't invaded by any other senior editor. This stresses CP's character as a group blog. The only exception is the Main Page, which is used by any senior editor to advertise his pet projects.

Conservapedia is dominated by the old hands:

Edits by account creation at CP
Edits by account creation at RW

This becomes even more obvious in the following graph, where for each point in time T the number of edits in 2013 is given made by those editors who created an account before T:

Cum. number of edits at CP
Cum. number of edits at RW

Example: half (ca. 19,500) edits out of a total 39,000 were made by editors who created their account before Feb 2009, while at RW half of 2013's edits (64,000) were done by those who came before Aug 2011.

That's not so far from the mark. There's at least one - possibly two - discussions in the soopah seekrit mails where Karajou and TerryH in particular debate divvying CP up into various faculties, each with one of the Chosen Few heading it up. PsyGremlinTala! 08:57, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

Best New Conservative Word -- Andy Edition[edit]

This one will be hard to beat. I mean, no word (or phrase, in this case) is inherently bad (much less conservative, I guess), but for "not even wrong" you can't beat Uncertainty principle: an underlying chaos (uncertainty) at the atomic level in the physical world after the Fall of man, which renders a perpetual motion machine and life beyond 120 years impossible.img I really thought calling Jesus, aka God, "the best of the public" was as good as it could get, but I was wrong.

Andy's new mancrush??[edit]

Now that greatest conservative sport star and conservative of the year nominee 2011 & 2012 (IIRC) Tim Tebow has been thrown under te bus, for not being so great, Andy's found another target of his affection:

Colin Kaepernickimg, who's winning games for the 49ers, instead of being aborted. I'm sure we'll soon hear how he's an outspoken Christian and a greatest conservative sport star. PsyGremlin講話 00:19, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Er, it seems that he has Christian-themed tattoos, so the whole Christian thing isn't a big stretch. Phiwum (talk) 01:01, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, but even Tebow would probably be horrified by Conservapedia if he knew of it's existence. We are talking the site who dedicates a significant portion of it's space to the topic of dog dinking.
Also what Andy failed to mention is both so-called over rated sports star Tom Brady and Peyton Manning also won today, therefore these two quarterbacks are leading half of the remaining teams in the playoffs (New England and Denver respectively); and every team that is still in the playoffs (Denver, Seattle, New England, and San Francisco) represent a liberal bastion of the country.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:07, 13 January 2014 (UTC)
No wonder the NFL can't sell tickets to the playoff games. Burndall (talk) 20:11, 13 January 2014 (UTC)

Another Schlafly day in court[edit]

Thanks to whoever GregG isimg.

Given it's Andy, I think you can guess the outcome:

"Plaintiffs have established that the Court has jurisdiction to consider their Origination Clause and Takings Clause claims. Having considered the issues presented, the Court concludes that Plaintiffs have failed to state a legally cognizable claim as to each of their causes of action. Leave to amend the complaint would not rectify the deficiencies in the constitutional challenges to the ACA asserted. It is therefore ... DISMISSED WITH PREJUDICE."

I must say it's nice that Andy actually had to do some work to justify his salary. Wingnut Welfare To Work is A-OK with me. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 23:21, 11 January 2014 (UTC)

I'm impressed that GregG actually got on the US Party Index and found Andy's cases. I suspect he's a lawyer (honestly he's not me) and that his fascination with arbitration cases was an attempt to ingratiate himself with anti-consumer and anti-labor thugs that totally went over their heads. In any event, countdown to no response and this being trimmed relatively soon. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:20, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
Surprise, Nutty.img PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 00:27, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
And in Andy's defense, lawyers aren't necessarily judged for losses. People understand that there are reasons a lawyer would pursue a long shot, though not frivolous case, especially for a longstanding client (they're in the business of making $$$). People also understand that you don't always win and that it's not always obvious why (queue critical legal studies discussion). Andy's case was stupid, but not such a stretch that it was sanctionsble. Leave that to the birther lawyers who defame judges when they inevitably lose and somehow find themselves reported to the bar for violating the rules of professional conduct. No, Andy will be judged, if anyone pays attention to him, for representing cranks. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:29, 12 January 2014 (UTC)
Eh. Notices of Appeal are usually chest thumping. You have something like 10 days to file one, it's jurisdictional, and there are no ill effects if you don't later pursue the appeal. People do it routinely. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 00:31, 12 January 2014 (UTC)

Reading the above, it occurs to me that the evidence of Andrew Schlafly's competence or otherwise as an attorney probably isn't fully explored anywhere on RationalWiki. He seems to weather a lot of dismissals, but does he also win cases? Is the recent dismissal with prejudice (effectively saying "this application is so flawed we don't think refiling could fix it") typical of Schlafly's record? Given the bizarre nature of his personal beliefs and the amount of reality denial he must have to deploy just to retain them, I wouldn't be surprised if he was highly incompetent in the kind of marshaling an attorney must do to win a case, but is that a fair appraisal of his overall work in the field? --Tony Sidaway (talk) 12:33, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

Yes, your assessment is probably fair. But it's more difficult than that because of the nature of his work and having such a small record to evaluate. He's largely insulated himself from being subject to criticism for a poor win/lose record by working for cranks who generally only file unwinnable cases anyway, or who intervene in litigation by filing amicus briefs where they have an ideological or political stake in the outcome. The NJ "George Washington letter" case is a slightly special case: someone else lost in the trial court and filed the losing appellate brief. Several years ago, I looked at what you can find online, which was just a few federal district court filings and some appellate briefs. His prose is fine, although there's something disjointed about his writing that indicates to me that he "doesn't get it" - his publicly viewable appellate and amicus briefs are essentially long-form Conservapedia articles. I would say that, on the main, the quality of his work is not very good. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 16:15, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
Does he even seem like a working lawyer, in your opinion? The impression I get of him is that he enjoys a retainer from the AAPS out of all proportion to the work he's required to do to justify it, and that's pretty much his whole income. As far as I can tell he's independent, but doesn't seem to advertise for clients. He's essentially on Wingnut Welfare. Other than the odd speaking gig and amicus brief, does he do anything at all? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:00, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
This is an electrical engineer who doesn't believe in i we're talking about. From all we've seen of Andy at CP, I think that with the amount of hubris he has, he doesn't think he's working for cranks and he thinks these are sound, winnable cases. Occasionaluse (talk) 18:12, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
I'm certain he thinks that way and that it is all the fault of activist judges and the vast liberal conspiracy, which holds sway - despite the undisputable fact that conservatism is growing, that causes him to constantly lose each and every case I hear about him taking. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:58, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
No, he doesn't seem like a regular working lawyer. Being outside counsel for a crank group is pretty unusual :-) Being outside counsel at all is unusual, and it's usually not a good way to get rich since you're beholden to a particular client, perhaps at the expense of new business, at capped rates. I have no idea what his retainer is, but you don't get to count a retainer as your own money. It's just a guarantee that's held in trust for the client.He may not even charge for the limited work he does. I get the impression someone else supports him. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 19:14, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
You know he's still getting paid for "teaching" at Eagle Forum. I'm pretty sure EF also pays the bills for CP (and probably something extra for Andy to admin it). Occasionaluse (talk) 19:53, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
He could also be doing a bunch of legal work that doesn't show up in court records. Nutty will correct me if I'm wrong, but is it not the case that one can be busy enough as an attorney without going to court? PowderSmokeAndLeather: Say something once, why say it again?.Moderator 19:58, 14 January 2014 (UTC)
It depends on their speciality, but lawyers can spend their entire career not going anywhere near a courtroom. Things like drawing up contracts, especially in employment matters, checking other people's contacts, being asked for Official Legal Opinion, all of it generates income and is very unlikely to result in you needing to go to court. In Andy's case it does look suspiciously like Wingnut Welfare, with the bulk of his work taken up with offering legal opinion and writing letters, but actual court representation being undertaken by other attorneys by his more serious clients. Not for a second can I imagine Andy giving up a chance to show off in court if given the chance.
And, given Andy's actual performance in front of the NJ Supreme Court, I can't help but wonder if he's just tick-boxed his way through self-learning CLEs that he needs to take every couple of years.--Stunteddwarf Spirit of the Cherry Blossom 20:31, 14 January 2014 (UTC)

He's such a dope that he repeatedly said he wanted to litigate whatever dispute he thought there was between CP and RW and honestly (this I know he wasn't kidding about) thought that a judge would have anything to say about it aside from "case dismissed with prejudice with Conservapedia to bear all costs." He apparently really thought that so-called ideologically motivated wiki-vandalism could support some kind of claim for damages. That's idiotic beyond words, but then again, he's not a very sophisticated person. The kind of motivated thinking that could support that kind of self-deception is beyond me. I can only imagine he at least thinks he's being clever in a kind of "Ha ha! Take this brutal riposte you Otisburg scum!" way. It's incomprehensible, but we already have evidence that he's not only dumb as a rock, angry as a beaten dog, but grossly overestimates his significance and power. So yeah, all this added up I'd say he has somehow managed to have an IQ perhaps slightly north of 100, yet say such staggeringly moronic things that, hearing them in person, a person might back away slowly.

Andy's feelings about his "job"?[edit]

How does Andy feel about the so-called liberal fields of engineering and computer science? Would you say? After, all....

  • The evils of REDSREDSREDS playing Violent Video Games!
  • The use of the internet to voice "liberal deceit"!
  • A Storehouse of Knowledge. That is all. No mentioning former dissenting admins.
  • TK. After all, Conservapedia is the viewpoint of ALL Americans!
  • "Liberal parodists" having found Conservapedia!
  • The "Vandal Site"...Wonder whatever happened to it?
  • Wikipedia. After all, Neutral Point Of View is merely a liberal's denial of FACT borne out from his totally impartial point of view.
  • ANYONE who disagreed with Andy and has a website.

So, in all...How does he feel about it? Is Andy in denial? Is Andy's bite not as bad as his bark? Or is he nuts? Or is he just forgetful about some things? Or am I using "Or" too much?

The only part of this that makes any sense is the subject line. But Andy isn't employed in any traditional sense. He's not an engineer. He's not a computer scientist or developer. He's not really more than a dilettante lawyer. His "job" is being the extremist son of Phyllis Schlafly and I don't think it pays well.

Does his wife's income from her medical practice support him and the kids? Lil Phyllis's Princeton tuition isn't cheap.

Wait. What?[edit]

Andy added another Counterexample to an Old Earth, namely that heavy rain causes erosionimg. No big deal. But I was struck by his main argument, If each of these 44 counterexamples has merely a 10% chance of being valid -- an underestimate -- then the probability that the Earth is billions of years old is only 1%. In other words, the Earth must be young with a likelihood of 99%..

Am I missing something here? How does throwing more and more incorrect evidence (90% chance of being bullshit) at an argument ultimately prove a fact? This has been there for years, so I apologize if it's been discussed in the past. Whoover (talk) 01:15, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Andy has some very fucked up ideas of how anything works. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic? Moderator 14:03, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
It just doesn't work. It's like calculating the probability of the sperm that fertilised the egg and finding the chances so remote that I can't, with a 99.999% certainty, actually exist. Ajkgordon (talk) 14:34, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Correct me if I'm wrong (as I haven't studied maths since school) but it looks like it's the premises here (that there's some kind of binary dichotomy between "new" & "old", and that each of these counterexamples has at least a 10% chance of disproving an old earth) that are fallacious rather than the calculations. If, for the sake of argument, we accept these shaky premises, then we can proceed as follows:

  • Apply one counterexample which has a 10% chance of disproving an old earth: an old earth is now 90% probable
  • Apply another counterexample: the probability of an old earth is now 90% of the previous calculation of 90% (i.e. 90%2) = 81%
  • Third counterexample: an old earth is 90% of 81% probable (90%3) = 72.9% probable
  • And so on through 44 counterexamples, with the probability of an old earth diminishing by 10% of the previous calculation each time.
  • The end probability for an old earth will be 90%44 = 0.97% (to the nearest two decimal places), making the probability of a young earth 99.03%

Obviously this is junk, but that's because of the contention that any of these things have any probability of conclusively disproving an old earth, not because of how that hypothetical probability has been applied. WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 14:38, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

Perhaps I'm slightly misunderstanding you here (please correct me if I am), but I think the problem is more elementary than that. For example, one can calculate the probability that Earth is able to support life, and we would find a very small number. Of course, the real probability of this happening is 100% because here we are. In a similar vein, I think the entire premise that one can use probabilities in this fashion to disprove something at all is completely off base. For those of us living in the real world, the probability of the Earth being old is 100% because we have experimental proof of that. - GrantC (talk) 16:04, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
I guess Weaseloid's "logic" is that used by Andy. At least it means that, with additional probably wrong evidence, we're asymptotically approaching certainty. The other possibility, of course, is that Andy's math was awaiting the critical evidence that would put us over the top (of p=1), with additional poor evidence improving the odds past 1. Once you accept that lots of poor evidence trumps good evidence to the contrary, any analysis is possible. The other unique thing about such a Schlafly proof, of course, is that evidence against Jesus having dined on Opabinia risotto has no bearing on the outcome. Whoover (talk) 18:39, 19 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, it's ridiculously difficult to follow. My area of research requires me to know a decent amount about statistics, and wrapping my brain around Andy's thought process borderline hurts. At that point, it's more than possible to just make up some evidence, claim it has some tiny (but non-zero) probability of being right, and then stack enough pieces on top of each other to eventually disprove anything. As long as I had enough arguments that each had a 0.1% chance of being correct, I would eventually win by sheer numbers! - GrantC (talk) 19:17, 19 January 2014 (UTC)

That settles that, I suppose[edit]

We've often wondered if Andy ever reads the articles he links to, but I think that debate can be settled by his complete fabricationimg of a quote in this Torygraph link.

This Headline Telling For What It Doesn't Say[edit]

According to Andy, the Patriots losing the AFC Championship means that Tom Brady is an overrated sports starimg and thus Conservapedia is "proven right". Of course this headline is typical for Conservapedia, which is propaganda through omission of "inconvenient" facts.

The team Brady lost to? The Broncos, lead by Peyton Manning, the quarterback Andy loves to hate on and rants as "overrated" as well. Of course Andy won't mention that part as it doesn't fit his narrative. Remember Andy's golden boy of the moment? Colin Kaepernickimg? Also played poorly this last Sunday and bears some of the responsibility for his team losing the NFC Championship to Seattle, that little fact once get mentioned. Expect his name to be quietly swept under the rug.

Andy's loathing of Peyton Manning though is what is truly mind-boggling. Here is a guy who is not only a Republican donor, but also a born-again protestant Christian who has been quoted as saying "I committed my life to Christ, and that faith has been most important to me ever since" and " I hope (and pray) I don’t do too many things that displease Him before I get to Heaven myself. I believe, too, that life is much better and freer when you’re committed to God in that way". He is a small business owner, he is married with children, he runs charities and donates to hospitals. This guy should be right up Andy's alley; a shining beacon to the fundies of a successful, charitable, proud Christian. Yet all Il Duce does is rip on the guy. Why? Because the Broncos had the audacity to choose him over Tebow, who is just a bit more in your face about his religion.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 01:32, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Heh, of course he's still bitter. It's amazing how he's still holding a grudge against the two people who he sees as putting good, Christian Tebow out of a job. It's astonishing he's not able to see his own bias, that the two "overrated" quaterbacks only became overrated as soon as they were picked ahead of Tebow on their respective teams. I don't think for a moment he's considered that Tebow just isn't that good, there must be a huge anti-Christian conspiracy to keep him down. Maybe some projection there? --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 04:47, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Andy and the Database.[edit]

I was doing a bit of searching on CP and found that if you say wanted to search for say user AlanE, this result was shown.img I did the same with recently banned "troublemakers" such as Markmanimg, DVergneimg and Fnarrowimg. I also found that if I say searched for those usernames but misspell them the result is asimg youimg wouldimg expect.img So from this I gather that Andy has been playing around in the database to try and remove any evidence of certain users have ever existed (although he did fail as you can still search for those terms if you select everything). So could Andy in theory completely remove any evidence of say Bugler or TK or Ken through the database ? Ghost (talk) 01:44, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

One thing Andy can't do is update the mediawiki install. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:52, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
Not really in the database directly. Usually, these people just make one or two edits that get oversighted or deleted and then there's no trace of them. For someone like TK, it'd be more difficult. It's too late for oversight in most cases, you'd have to go to the mysql command line and physically delete all his edits from the DB. Images would be the hardest, you'd either have to delete and reupload them, or outright forge the userid on every image entry, plus you'd have to audit the upload text. In case you were wondering, all of this is beyond Andy's skill. As noted, he can't even patch mediawiki to fix the many, many security holes he's cruising with. Andy ought to take it as courtesy that none of us evil liberals has hacked his glorious haven of conservatism, it's not like it would be difficult. You'd only have to review the last 4 years of mediawiki security notices and take your pick. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 04:36, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

The official version is now that the saintly TK of beloved memory was a thoroughly good guy who never abused anyone except for filthy liberals who were asking for it. Of course, he's never going to come back to prove them wrong. Obviously making someone who's still alive a non-person could be a bit more difficult. Spud (talk) 09:52, 22 January 2014 (UTC)

Urgh. Followed the link and saw Ken's "Evolution & little consensus" link. On what planet - besides Kenworld - is that even English? PsyGremlinTal! 06:32, 23 January 2014 (UTC)
"Little consensus" in Ken-speak means that evolution is an area of active scientific research, e.g. on the date of divergence of placental and marsupial mammals. In Ken-world, the fact that the evidence isn't yet clear on this point, specifically on whether or not placentals appeared before flightless dinosaurs died out (*), means that science is wrong and therefore Genesis (taken literally, not as a 6th century BC poem possibly influenced by Hesiod) is right.
(*) Something to do with the days on which Genesis says "all flying things", which Ken assumes includes bats, were created and was that before things that might be dinosaurs. You have to read the complete drivel on the CMI website that Ken links to to appreciate the full lunacy of this point.

He did post something about an article in a peer reviewed journal saying that Darwinism was at the end of its rope. It's still on his blog. Of course, what Ken doesn't understand is that the study of evolution has moved on from pure Darwinism a long, long time ago. PsyGremlinPrata! 16:30, 26 January 2014 (UTC)

I think that what each of us doesn't know fills entire libraries.

Psy, what Ken doesn't understand (one of the many things) is that two people proposing a challenging/ provocative opinion doesn't mean a 154-year-old theory has been disproved. EvoDevo implies that some ways of reaching an outcome that maximises inclusive fitness are more probable than others but no way does it contradict natural selection as the main driving force of evolution.

Aschlafly has at last added black holes to the conservapedia proven right list --Buscombe (talk) 05:43, 27 January 2014 (UTC)

Wow. Andy really is a dishonest cunt who only reads what he wants to see. Nowhere does Hawking say black holes don't exist. All he's saying is that they might need a bit of rethinking at a quantum level, and that light might escape them, resulting in grey holes. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 06:41, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Especially lost on him: Hawking trying to reconcile black holes and Einstein. Whoover (talk) 06:50, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
A week or so ago he used the fact that black holes do exist as a counter-example to relativity. Make up your mind Andy.--Mercian (talk) 08:54, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
This just simplifies Andy's statistical argument. Since black holes either exist or not, the odds that relativity is wrong are 100%. Phiwum (talk) 11:54, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I saw that article a day or two again and as soon as I saw the headlines, I knew Andy was going to pounce on it the moment he spotted it. Now he'll be even more insufferable that ever when it comes to astrophysics and relativity. Why? Because he just reads the headlines and headlines are usually sensational to grab the reader's attention. I doubt Andy has any concept what Hawkins really meant when he said "black holes aren't really black". Thank goodness Andy has no influence, especially educational influence, anywhere.--BMcP - Just an astronomy guy 13:43, 27 January 2014 (UTC)
I love his commentary that Hawking should just have listened to Andy about the existence of black holes.

Home skooling[edit]

Seeing that a student has posted answers to Andy's world history 3 homework I thought I'd check what the homework actually was to see how the answers rated. So I took a lookimg and what especially caught my attention was question 2. Pick an intellectual breakthrough or discovery mentioned in this week's letter.

But they have to write two essays of 150 words. And another essay of 500 words. So that's 800 words in total. Unless the 500 word essay is actually 501 words in which case it counts as the second 150 word essay bringing the homework total to 651 words worth of essay. I think. Question 8 is oddly worded.

I am gob-smacked by the extraordinary low-level of Ken's life-time achievements. It's really depressing that someone has led such an insignificant life and had so little to do with members of the opposite sex that having a dance with a real "lady" is something to brag about. His excitement is more becoming of a fifteen-year old on his first date than a sad-sack, middle-aged man in his fifties.

I've been watching CP for a few years now and that exchange may be the saddest and most pathetic thing I've ever seen Ken post.

Cow...Hammertime! 14:56, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

I was going to pile on, but writing it made me feel like I was bullying a highschool social outcast. You know the one, probably would've been diagnosed autistic if they were in school now, the weirdo couldn't get a clue but still desperately wants to be liked. The difference with Ken is, of course, that most said social outcasts eventually wise up to become productive members of society through sometimes painful intervention and coaching by loved ones. All Ken has are enablers of his behavior, hateful people who "support" him despite his problems because he's on the same "side" as them.
I say go get her, Ken, and maybe you'll have a chance at creating a support network outside of CP - someone who'll convince you to get the help you need.
If she exists. Shakedangle (talk) 19:42, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
The only reason I posted this was because the only thing Ken cares about is attention from people here. Noone else cares about him, especially his 'friends' over at cp. Any one of the people here would probably do far more to try to help him than any of his xian 'friends' do. Oldusgitus (talk) 20:07, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
I wouldn't. I've said his before: in my experience, mental illness does not change a person's nature. It may influence or cause strange behavior, but particularly when someone is not in crisis, you get a fair idea of who and what they are. Ken clearly has something very wrong with him, but in his core he is not a good person. He's a dishonest bigot. A cult extremist. A misogynist who views women merely as chidlbearing accoutrement with luxurious long creationist hair, or, as he's said, whores, witches, cold fish, etc. Being a vociferous YEC who adopted the worldview in adulthood, vs. someone who was merely raised in the culture, he willfully misrepresents whatever it lakes to zing his religious enemies. His articles make clear that, like a child telling obvious lies, he will build these elaborate stories that are patently ridiculous on their face on the basis of a few facts he's misrepresented. This atheism and obesity nonsense is but one example. Make no mistake: he hates you if you don't agree with him. It's very clear that he's not above repeatedly hijacking entire discussions to make irrelevant attacks on users solely because they've expressed ideas that deviate in the slightest detail from his wooden and flawed biblical literalism and hateful YEC worldview. Remember AugustO? SamHB and Iduan are getting it now. There will always be some "liberal" (ie non-YEC) for him to attack. There will always be science to lie about, shoddy biblical hermeneutics to be done, other extremist hatemongers to parrot and idolize. He's not even what he purports to be: Christians don't workshop the bible or YEC. They're not idolaters of the likes of Shockoffod or Carl Weiland. I don't wish him ill, but, beyond feeling awfully sorry for a man who's wasted his life, I might push him out of the way of oncoming traffic, but I wouldn't lift a finger to offer any less exigent aid. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 20:46, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
I was going to argue that his behavior is a result of Andy and co's enabling, but then I realized it could be the other way around. He stays on CP because his behavior isn't tolerated elsewhere. The conundrum is that the moment he tries socializing normally with some actual people who, you know, can't be reduced to stereotypes and be blocked, it's straight back to CP with a 8 hour editing spree. It's all one feedback loop of assholery, I'm sure. And here I was trying not to pile on. Shakedangle (talk) 22:20, 4 February 2014 (UTC)

UGH.img Okay last one I promise. Ken, we don't doubt you love the ladies. We're sure you do! It's just that, same as virtually every encounter we see you have online, you tend to reduce them to caricatures and stereotypes; you don't engage with them as individuals.

I also note, "Homosexuality is highly correlated to someone's activities and culture. For example, training in baseball and figure skating begin when a boy is only about six years ago [sic]. After years of engaging in those activities, often for hours each day, upon reaching adulthood fewer than 1 in 1000 baseball players are homosexual, while estimates are that 33% of male figure skaters are -- a 300-fold difference after doing different activities."

Andy has no statistics for the number of baseball players who are homosexual because in most "manly" sports anyone who is openly gay tends to get bullied and victimised. Hopefully, that will become less of an issue in the future as society in general becomes less bigoted. The problem is that those involved in very physical sports are often not the sharpest knives in the block and act as a repository of ignorance and bigotry.

It's been years since I watched more than a few minutes of the Super Bowl. I didn't watch a single second of it this year. Despite that, I can tell you the Seattle Seahawks won this year's, in a blowout. That's true most years -- I'll remember the game winner and a fact or two ("blowout", "close, exciting game", "wardrobe malfunction") for a few weeks after. It's covered enough in the media I'd have to either completely isolate myself from all media for a week or so starting at kickoff, or make an incredibly intense to avoid hearing any mention of the game.

Conservapedia in Jan 2014[edit]

I up-dated Conservapedia:Active users.

The numbers are up, again, from Dec 2013: due to a more lenient policy when it comes to account creation, CP could attract more editors (or spammers) than in the last four months. Nevertheless, Jan 2014 was one of the worst month in CP's history: only the previous four month (and Nov 2006) generated less edits, and only during the last few months, in the very beginning (Nov 2006, Dec 2006, Jan 2006) and at the height of TK's suffocation of CP (Sep - Nov 2010) there were fewer unique editors.

Andy achieves this not by blocking editors openly, but by denying them access to the server. E.g., I was informed that (at least some of) those who returned to CP after extensive blocks got their IPs blocked after a few uncontroversial edits. CP becomes more and more Andy's secret blog which can only be read in his tree-house where his club plots to defend TRVE CONSERVATIVISM.

Nevertheless, here a very nice pic of Jan 2014 at CP:

The peanut butter slam on Nutty Roux's masculinity has an interesting tangent. As NR says, "nutty roux" describes the aromas of Cajun (not French) roux, which is flour cooked in fat much longer than in French cuisine. Cajun roux can cook for a half-hour or longer and gets much more aromatic and dark-colored than French roux, which is only cooked for a few minutes and stays white. French roux is the basis of white sauces, and is primarily a thickener and not a flavoring. Cajun roux makes gumbos and other dishes dark and, well, nutty. Cajun roux may be stopped at various stages, depending on desired character. They are usually described by their appearance as "white blonde, peanut butter, milk chocolate and dark chocolate." "Nutty roux" is most often used as a synonym for the milk chocolate stage because that's when the aroma really develops. So Ken's association of peanut butter and Nutty Roux might have been divinely inspired. Way to go Ken! You've worked another miracle. Whoover (talk) 23:06, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Why does the host country have an advantage? I know in some games, like American football there is a definite homefield advantage, but I don't see how it can help someone run faster, jump higher, etc. DickTurpis (talk) 13:59, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
I imagine that training in the same facilities that you will compete on is part of that, especially in sports like skiing. Not having to travel and deal with jet lag, etc. is probably a factor, too. Having the crowd behind you can't hurt either. PowderSmokeAndLeather (talk) 15:19, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
I'll buy training the same same facilities. But do they do that? Have the Russian skiers been practicing on the actual courses they'll use in the competitions? Jet lag makes sense, I guess, but I imagine most of the athletes have time to recover before they start competing, though I could be wrong. Having the crowd behind you can help in teams sports and in some situations, but I can't see it adding height to a high jump, or helping someone run faster in the 200 meters, especially when the entire crowd is cheering anyway, and one can't differentiate who they're cheering for. I could see it being some sort of advantage, but marginal enough to be almost negligible. Do the host countries send a disproportionate number of athletes? That would certainly account for a real home field advantage. DickTurpis (talk) 15:38, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
For some sports knowing the local track can be an advantage as some special facilities are created and the home athletes can get to practice on them beforehand. But I would also think that for a major event on home soil the government often makes extra funds available for training to ensure that the home-nation has something to cheer about; after all, it normally requires significant investment to host a major tournament and there needs to be a feel-good pay-off. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. Moderator 15:43, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
I am not going to try to pretend I know the real reason as to why it happened but I do think that the UK definately got a boost from being the home nation in 2012. My guess would be that the national spirit was such that the athletes tried just that 'little' bit harder. The mood walking down the street, in the workplace and in the pubs was amazing. I am not jingoistic or nationalistic in the right wing sense, although I do think the UK is a great place to live, but even I felt national pride. Watching the Brownlees, watching Wiggo nail the sprint in the cycling, watching Mo and hearing the noise as a naturalised British refugee from Somalia dominated the 100000, seeing rowers who didn't really expect to win gold push just that 'tiny' bit harder to take it. There really was an almost tangible feeling. So perhaps that, perhaps not. Oldusgitus (talk) 16:18, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
The same ting happens in football doesn't it?--Bob"I think you'll find it's more complicated than that." 17:31, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
It does in American football, but in team sports there are a lot of factors in who wins, much more than in something like a 200 meter dash or luge. I don't care how loudly people are cheering for you, it ain't going to make your sled go any faster. I really don't see how a crowd could've made Mo Farrah run faster. I think he won because he was the fastest runner. Yes, he tried very hard, but I think you can say that of all the competitors. DickTurpis (talk) 17:57, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
It's nothing to do with 'making the sled go faster'. It's to do with the competitor trying just that little bit harder. If you are really saying that you always try your hardest in everything you do then you are a strange person. Having a hugely vocal home crowd behind you surely can encourage you to overstep what you thought were your own limits, if only by a very small amount. It is that effect I am talking about. There is a reason home teams predominantly win home fixtures in association football and it's nothing to do with them training on the pitches. Tehy don't. They have specialist training facilities and only run around on the actual pitch during games. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:06, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
No, certainly everyone doesn't try their hardest in everything they do, but I'm pretty sure when they're going for the gold in the Olympics they are trying their damned hardest. There can be a psychological advantage in some cases, sure, but "run down this track as fast as I can!" isn't the sort of activity wherein psychology plays an important role. Team sports in particular can be more susceptible to this, and you can find many examples of measurable advantages home teams have in sports, particularly when the fans are actively trying to sabotage one team's chances. I guess there's enough of these sorts in the Olympics that they might make an eventual difference in medal counts, but there are plenty in which I don't see how the home field can help. DickTurpis (talk) 21:39, 8 February 2014 (UTC)
You're kidding! Psychology is massive in athletics. From sprinting to the marathon. Team GB put a huge amount of effort into this in the years leading up to 2012. Many of the top competitors have their own retained sports psychologists. When you're dealing with the tiny percentages that separate Gold from also-ran, even the smallest advantage becomes significant. Ajkgordon (talk) 15:50, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I know what you mean, but I don't necessarily see how there's a consistent direct correlation between psychology and representing the host country, especially since for minor psychological benefits to make the difference you have to be one of the best competitors already, which isn't any more likely for the host country. I don't buy they "they try harder" hypothesis, anyway. Really what I'm wondering is if there's anything more concrete than "national spirit" that can account for a noticeable advantage host countries seem to have. Is there something quantifiable? I know there is for some sports, but I've always been a bit skeptical of the innate home field advantage being a universal. I think the study Night Jaguar posted below explains part of it much better, in pointing out that subjectively assessed sports showed the greatest home field advantage, indicating that the host doesn't necessarily do better, but is seen (consciously or subconsciously) to do better. I also imagine host countries do well out of selection bias, as only countries that historically have prospered at the Olympics are chosen to host (still waiting for Burundi to get their chance). I think my original question was basically do the host countries have a disproportionate number of competitors compared to the other countries, and if so, is it because they put more effort and money into their teams when they host (as I have no doubt they do) or is there some actual rule that gives the host better representation? I'm guessing the answer to the latter is no. DickTurpis (talk) 15:06, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
This paper looked at the advantages of host countries in the Winter Olympics:
"We obtained indices of home advantage, based on the medals won by competing nations, for each event held at the Winter Olympics from 1908 to 1998.... When all events were combined, a significant home advantage was observed ( P = 0.029), although no significant differences in the extent of home advantage were found between events ( P > 0.05). When events were grouped according to whether they were subjectively assessed by judges, significantly greater home advantage was observed in the subjectively assessed events ( P = 0.037). This was a reflection of better home performances, suggesting that judges were scoring home competitors disproportionately higher than away competitors. Familiarity with local conditions was shown to have some effect, particularly in alpine skiing, although the bobsled and luge showed little or no advantage over other events. Regression analysis showed that the number of time zones and direction of travel produced no discernible trends or differences in performance."

Andy: "In Britain, where atheism dominates, people dislike underdogs and tend to root for the contestant who is favored to win."img Following Andy is like reading the Bible; you get a bunch of weird ideas that contradict themselves. At least the Bible has the excuse of being written by many different authors several centuries ago. --Night Jaguar (talk) 15:11, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
What? Yes, I'd say British audiences are well known in Europe for rooting for the underdogs when no own guys are in the running. Octo8 (talk) 15:53, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Absolutely right. As long as they're not French. Or German. Sometimes we're not too fond of the Americans but it's not as bad as other nationalities. I reckon that generally we've nothing against the Spanish and I quite like the Italians, especially Valentino Rossi. And we generally don't mind the Dutch. But not the French or the Germans :-) Oldusgitus (talk) 16:42, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
True, actually. If it weren't for that I'd call the British audiences truly sportsman-like, but some fans seem to be a bit vicious when it comes to Germany. But then, when are we ever the underdogs? [/smug] :p Also they aren't as bad as the Dutch fans, heh. Octo8 (talk) 16:45, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Apparently she's bisexual, so she likes men just enough to avoid being overweight and having a host of health problems like all lesbians of course do. And it's a joke sport anyway. --Kels (talk) 18:28, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Ironically, t.A.T.u. performed at the opening ceremony and the dark haired one is also allegedly openly bi. But then again, she's also hawt enough for Ken to spill seed over, so I guess she doesn't count. --PsyGremlinRunāt! 18:42, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
I was just thinking similar Psy. This is like a huge wet dream for Ken really isn't it. He can hate them and fantasise about converting them at the same time. Oldusgitus (talk) 18:47, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
guys...for the sake of all that is decent please stop speculating as to ken's ejaculatory habits. I would honestly rather imagine being sewn onto the back of a human cenipede comprised entirely of lepers than think of that. Judge HoldenThe Judge Smiles 20:54, 9 February 2014 (UTC)
Besides Ken getting off on lesbians (which I agree is a topic to be avoided), I'd imagine both he and Andy would celebrate lesbians taking medals, like candy from babies, from the demure ladies who really don't have any business in sports to begin with. One manly woman in the bunch is bound to clean up. That's the opposite of a raft of girly men competing with Christian men, which is a fool's errand. Whoover (talk) 21:57, 9 February 2014 (UTC)

Speaking of masturbation, isn't this page for talking about what's going at Conservapedia? The Olympic stuff seems devoid of that (except one ole ole ole) and full of random thoughts about what Ken or Andy or whoever might say. Just sayin', is all. Wait for the amusement, don't try to write it in advance? ħumanUser talk:Human 00:26, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Pulling Ken up on his support of gay murder results in a ban for the machismo-lacking editor[edit]

[3]img [4]img That bus you would push him away from Nutty, I don't think I would bother. It would be kinder to Ken and the human race in general. I would not piss on him if he were on fire.--Mercian (talk) 16:45, 10 February 2014 (UTC)

Unblocked by andy, apparently Jerry successfully appealed. Oldusgitus (talk) 15:24, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Crossed the line. I don't wish Ken ill, but I also don't wish him well. He's not a good person, but FFS don't adopt his ghastly worldview of wishing violence and pain on those he hates. Tell me you'd help anyone in a bad spot like that, no matter how odious. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 01:22, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
I would piss on some of them if they were on fire. If I were pissing petrol that is. Oldusgitus (talk) 17:40, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
You know, I have finally realized the Conservapedia is a force for good. The mentally ill person who wants death for homosexuality is spending thousands of hours editing a nutty website everyone else takes as a joke instead of loitering outside a gay bar heavily armed, and struggling with confusing urges. And banning people for doubting his "authority" instead of, you know trying to establish that kind of dominance with a gun. Ikanreed (talk) 17:38, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
Ha, loiter outside a gay-bar? It takes a virtual miracle to get Ken out of his apartment (now he no longer lives with his mom), and heavily-armed for Ken is carrying a bag of marshmallows. Redchuck.gif Генгисunbelieving Moderator 19:09, 10 February 2014 (UTC)
"loitering outside a gay bar heavily armed, and struggling with confusing urges" I chuckled. Occasionaluse (talk) 15:59, 11 February 2014 (UTC)
Ken's Abaddon the Despoiler imitation is becoming quite unfunny at this rate. Oh, wait. It isn't a imitation. He is that crazy.--The Madman (talk) 03:23, 11 February 2014 (UTC)The Madman
Ken is in a block war with Andy and Brenden over JerryCa. I think Ken is hearing posts in his mind that don't exist. Two blocks for behavior "since his return" even though JerryCa hasn't posted since Andy unblocked him. Whoover (talk) 06:19, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
He burned something that (presumably) JerryCa posted on Talk:Main Page before blocking him. Cow...Hammertime! 16:22, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Good old Kendoll. He may not uphold the letter of CP's laws, but he's sure got the dickish spirit right down to a tee. --JeevesMkII The gentleman's gentleman at the other site 17:01, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Seems like it's got Conservapedia's Law down pretty well: 10 be a hateful dick to anyone the moment they express anything you might construe as disagreement 20 goto 10. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 17:04, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Don't you just love endless goto loops of hatred? - Grant (Talk) 17:06, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Ken has a point though, how dare this upstart criticise him for all but advocating the genocide of homosexuals, it is indeed poor behaviour to object to such reason, although in many nations he would find himself on the wrong end of a criminal charge. Seriously now, anything that a closeted homosexual and probable obese animal fancying sociopathic arsehole like him considers poor behaviour is fine by me and probably 99 % of the human race, of which he is barely a member.--Mercian (talk) 19:25, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Jesus dude. He's probably gay, but gay is OK. He might be obese since being overweight is endemic in the christian community, but obesity is something you can work on and change. Who knows if he's into bestiality. It's definitely ooky and there are plenty of things to put your dick in that have the capacity to consent. But these aren't things that outwardly have anything to do with his loathsome character as far as I can tell. If you're talking about him being a hypocrite, say so. His real problem seems to be untreated mental illness. His "Dumbo's Feather" article is heartbreaking in light of his regular crisis episodes. He's also a creep even when he's not having a breakdown. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:25, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
I am not saying these things are bad, he is. And the mental illness thing does not stand up, plenty of people, including myself have suffered from mental illness before but I would not have been able to use that as an excuse if I started acting in a way that would make even Fred Phelps cringe. Is Christianity not supposed to be about love? About spreading the word of god? His version of Christianity is all about hate. Mental illness or not, no fucking excuse--Mercian (talk) 22:32, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
No the point is that he's not a good person notwithstanding his obvious illness. He doesn't have to be gay, fat, or a sheepfucker to be a creep. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 22:39, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Creep? Describing him as a creep is like describing Stalin as unpleasent.--Mercian (talk) 22:47, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Calms down a little. Sorry for my rant. I am not as familiar with him as the majority of you, but in the few months since I have been aware of him I can safely say he is the most odious little turd I have come across on an internet full of odious little turds. Have you seen his latest post describing atheists/agnostics/RW posters as "sissy boys", does that not make us targets of his fantasy gay cull?--Mercian (talk) 22:55, 12 February 2014 (UTC)
Guys, guys! It could all be that and more! Since we're talking about the horrible embodiment of gibbering depraved human evil and slothful impotence which reality has chosen to call Ken, it could get even worse. At the very least, he's not in a place of power over any other human being or able to influence anyone.--The Madman (talk) 23:03, 12 February 2014 (UTC)The Madman
