Sycophantic sockpuppet makes good! [1] Block rights, awarded for defending the tough-as-nails swabbie's bunk from desecration. [2] ħumanUser talk:Human 19:52, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

And he's only 19 days old! Would that any of my socks had succeeded so quickly in getting such rights! Meanwhile, in a dark bar somewhere, hunched over his fifth drink of the morning, sits Helpjazz. Bitter. Lonely. Spurned. Vengeful. DogP 20:08, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Wow, that is impressive. I'm just happy to have avoided a block so far. I thought I was going to get one from JJacob, until I realized he was a parodist too! The Lay Scientist 20:47, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
I'm delighted to say that my own socks with blocking rights remain under deep cover, but it took most of them a lot longer to get such rights. I think it's a real sign of how slack the place has become that someone can get such rights 19 days into their tenancy. BTW, please don't keep outing suspected parodists, Lay Scientist. It reduces potential lulz in the long run. DogP 20:53, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
I think we should do a Spartacus and just out every sysop as a paradost, lol. Uncle Ed is my sock folks, you heard it here first! 04:56, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Haha, I only referred to JJacob as a puppet because he/it seemed like an ass-licking troll. I had/have no evidence that he/she/it is not "for real". ħumanUser talk:Human 05:09, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Tyops and missspleings[edit]

It makes it kinda hard to jump on Cpers when they lambaste BHO over gaffes and such if we're going to do the same gotcha! shtick to them, not that it isn't lulzy, but it ain't WIGO quality lulz. CЯacke® 20:03, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Maybe but from someone who spends a great deal of time giving everyone shit for typos I think it makes his fair game...but then you get into an infinite regress since we are doing it.........but anyway, its the hypocrisy angle again. There is a lot of things that I mock CP for that I would not if it wasn't for the abject hypocrisy it exhibits. tmtoulouse provoke 20:13, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
PS I think this is an example of what the voting system is for, and it should stay as a WIGO item and just let the "users" decide its value. tmtoulouse provoke 20:14, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Also, we work our asses off fixing each other's typos, etc. We critique because we care. Remember that teh assfly is famous for critiquing others' spelling while making his own errors. When I read that line over at CP, I thought "well, if you speak as well as you write, it's you that is going to get pwnzored". ħumanUser talk:Human 20:19, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
I think we should point out his typoes but we should also include a blanket disclaimer on WIGO.Maybe even a footnote! Something like: Andy has discounted people here, here, and here because of minor typographical errors. Hre is one of his. discount him too— Unsigned, by: Sheesh! / talk / contribs
Hell, any lowly editor who deigns to "correct" His Poohbahness is liable to be blocked, hence his keyboard hiccups stay there until he Hisself fixes them. Points taken above, but I think (given that it's a talk page post), it's a bit picayune. CЯacke® 20:38, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Considering he thinks he is above fault and a teacher to boot, using and adjective instead of an adverb is pretty bad. It's not a typo, it's carelessness at best, and perhaps even a slight illiteracy showing through. Minor WIGO? Sure. Worth ripping on him for? Sure. His best stuff, of course, gets added to his article... ħumanUser talk:Human 20:40, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Hmmm, at the rate things are going, my correction of Andy's "typo" is gonna be the last edit of the evening. Wake up, CPers with edit rights! ħumanUser talk:Human 22:51, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Thanks for making them dance[edit]

I'm not sure who to thank for goading ashfly into his correspondence with PNAS, but thanks. Hopefully PNAS will print his questions and a response. I'll make the popcorn! Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 20:10, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Will PNAS give us a group rate on copies of that issue? I know I will want to frame it. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:20, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
I'm sure on Planet Andy, this is a win-win situation. If the PNAS doesn't reply, it's Liberal Censorship. If they DO reply, it's Liberal Deceit.  :-P -- 23:52, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
The real problem is that Andy doesn't get that PNAS comments are not newspaper letters to the editor; they're real articles that an editor will promptly reject, and that you actually have to give evidence for your assertions. Sterilesnore! 08:40, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Wait, you're not saying that Schlafly only 'skimmed' the PNAS submission instructions too? Inconceivable! In any case, I think the biggest thanks go to Dinsdale. The letter might not get published in PNAS but it will be spread far and wide. I agree that in Andy's mind it will always be 'win-win', but does anyone expect otherwise?--Neon 21:16, 23 July 2008 (EDT) (aka Argon)

HPV vaccine hysteria[edit]

Andy has posted a HPV vaccine=death new link. It took more than a few clicks so here is the original source. I have some suspicions about whats going on but will sober up first. Other should explore. tmtoulouse provoke 23:04, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

Yes, I saw that and "wondered" about interesting things like math, and facts, and data. None of which matter to teh assfly. Since he Knows The Truth. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:25, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Just FYI:
"Judicial Watch, Inc., a conservative, non-partisan educational foundation, promotes transparency, accountability and integrity in government, politics and the law. Through its educational endeavors, Judicial Watch advocates high standards of ethics and morality in our nation’s public life and seeks to ensure that political and judicial officials do not abuse the powers entrusted to them by the American people. Judicial Watch fulfills its educational mission through litigation, investigations and public outreach. "[3]
"Judicial Watch was created to serve as an ethical and legal watchdog over our government and judicial systems and to promote a return to ethics and morality in our nation’s public life."[4]
So I think this source should be treated with a grain of salt.Shangrala 23:55, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
Don't we have an article on those idiots yet? By now? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:13, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Judicial Watch From Sourcewatch, it turns out that Judicial Watch has received over US$7m in funding, mostly from three sources: the Sarah Scaife Foundation, The Carthage Foundation and the John M. Olin Foundation, Inc. [5].

The first two are part of a group of foundations run by the very Conservative Richard Mellon Scaife until a few years ago. According to SourceWatch"Although Scaife has dedicated vast sums of money to influencing the way the public thinks, he prefers to operate behind the scenes, granting few interviews. When former Wall Street Journal reporter Karen Rothmyer attempted to interview him in 1981, he responded by calling her a 'fucking Communist cunt' and telling her to 'get out of here.'" Olin's foundation is similarly Conservative.

So basically, Judicial Watch looks to be a very socially conservative group, opposed to HPV vaccines on moral grounds. The Lay Scientist 06:34, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

That was my first question. is Andy objecting to HPV on moral or medical grounds. thanks for looking that up.--WaitingforGodot 13:48, 24 July 2008 (EDT)


What's with "ASchlafly's" tendency to "frequently" use "quotation marks," especially around "words" he doesn't "understand"? --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 23:24, 22 July 2008 (EDT)

He's trying to be "lawyerly"? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:26, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
More importantly: heeee's baaaaack, and editing at 11:30 at night again! Long Live Conspwervapediophile! (lulz ensue for all who are addicted to them) ħumanUser talk:Human 23:28, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
OK, Scchlafliyieies's been on vacation, we need to start a pool betting on whether he got his monkey spanked laid or not. ħumanUser talk:Human 23:30, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
He's been editing very sporadically lately, but was he really on vacation? Looking at his contribs, he only missed July 18. It's got to be a really shitty vacation if you still have time to edit your personal wiki. And as far as sex goes, I'd prefer not to think about it too much, but still, I doubt a vacation is going to get in the way of he and his wife's weekly-scheduled 15 minutes of clinical, unfulfilling, missionary-only marital act. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 23:42, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
"Quasi-vacation"? Maybe they went somewhere, maybe not, but he brought his laptop. And has a hard a time accessing CP as us the last 2-3 weeks. Things seem to have gone "live" tonight though (he paid siteground the bandwidth fee?) - or is it just me that can get through again for once? ħumanUser talk:Human 23:53, 22 July 2008 (EDT)
PS, sorry, I only mentioned the sex thing to gross everyone out!! ħumanUser talk:Human 23:54, 22 July 2008 (EDT) (you succeeded! SusanG  ContribsTalk 23:58, 22 July 2008 (EDT))

No, no. The schlaflys dont have sex. Andy releases his seeds into the air like a dandelion while his wife runs around trying to catch them in her egg sac. Ace McWickedInteresting 00:11, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

I have often wondered what Andy's wife and family do whilst he is on CP having an argument with some people he doesn't know, with some people he will never meet on a topic he knows nothing about. I am sure he would every now and then get all worked up. To be honest his wife is either extremely sympathetic, or must have a lot of hobbies that keep her out of the house. 3.14159 (not signed in)
Remember, as was said before by a wiser tongue than mine, she might be glad something keeps him in his den until after she is asleep... ħumanUser talk:Human 01:11, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
That's even worse: you used tongue in the same sentence as a Schlafly sex reference! SusanG  ContribsTalk 04:17, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Wow, yeah, the same "sentence"..... but far from the same "clause"... ħumanUser talk:Human 04:28, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

He's back![edit]

Kajagoogoo's back after showing himself up at WP - Zap!! Pow!!! Wham!!!! The invincible Petty [sic] officer blocks with his magic banhammer. (wonder if he thinks he is Batman defending against the forces of evil?) SusanG  ContribsTalk 04:13, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Gee, how exciting. He logged in blocked four vandals? As if there weren't many waiting? Methinks, Susan, you are little obsessed with RC@CP, and nothing else? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:30, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Karajou must be pretty sensitive if this can count as intimdating/harassing behaviour. I'd really expect a little more... sang-froid from a former Navy man. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 04:50, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
NO IT'S JUST ANYONE WHO EDITS!!!!! ...IS SUSPECT!!!!!!!!!! SO I BANNED THEM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Just in case? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:16, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
That seems to be his standard m/o - ooh, somebody's querying something I did... let me ban them, then I don't have to answer and risk exposing myself as an even bigger jerk. He must have hated his brief sojurn on WP, where he couldn't wield the banhammer and had to fall back on his old, tired mantra. --JohnQThe Poster Formally Known As PsyGremlin 05:36, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
An now he is being tempted to submit a letter to an academic journal... ho ho ho, he he he, ha ha ha!!!!!!!! ħumanUser talk:Human 05:46, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Nice non-sequitur, Human - edit the wrong section, did we? ħumanUser talk:Human 20:34, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Anybody wanna bet...[edit]

...what the result of this (very polite) appeal will be? --JohnQThe Poster Formally Known As PsyGremlin 05:36, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

I will bet a 30 minute block that the user will be shot down in flames by Assfly, called a liberal, and reminded that only people in the U.S. can POSSIBLY be true conservatives. Will you take the bet? ĴάΛäšςǍ₰ Over 2700 edits! Thats over 107!
I see your 30 minutes and raise you an hour. I think she'll get it... dunno why. Maybe coz she's a girl, she doesn't seem to have caused trouble, and she seems to write sensibly. Then again - Andy is a misogynist, she hasn't really kowtowed to the party line and yup, she's not American. (Karajou will probably ban her for bombing Pearl Harbour). I'm still rooting for her though. If she goes the way of Helpjazz, I'll spend an hour in the cooler... --JohnQThe Poster Formally Known As PsyGremlin 11:46, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
I Think she'll get it too. She's a rarity on CP - someone who just likes to create useful content about subjects that interest her, without feeling a need to put a conservaspin on it. Given that she's been helping Poor Ed out and that he thinks well of her, too, she should pass muster with Andy. -- 12:55, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Of course her edits are 100% C&P, but that's pretty typical at CP. 'Course it's kinda hard to put a conservative spin on Chess or Kanji. --WaitingforGodot 13:10, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Liberals attempt to use the genderless plural pronoun 彼等 rather than the masculine singular pronoun 彼 in order to obfuscate the differences between men and women (replace those with "they" and "he" respectively and you've got an actual argument he's made).
If Andy has taught me something, it is that you can attempt to spin ANYTHING. NightFlareStill doesn't have a (nonstub) RWW article. 13:34, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Ah well, it looks like she wound up being the first victim of the post-BlockStock paranoia that's bound to kick in. How is Andy to know what all those Kanji characters are really saying, anyway. --SpinyNorman 20:35, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Ah dammit. I lost that bet! ĴάΛäšςǍ₰ Over 2700 edits! Thats over 107!
Heh, heh, heh... You're outta here. See you in an hour. Although... she didn't get approval either... which means... oh rats... --PsyGremlinWhut? 04:50, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

I remember 1987 fondly. It was a good year. But not as good as 1992. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 14:07, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
I think we all have a soft spot for the year of our birth. ;) Jollyfish.gifGenghisOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 14:10, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Well, someone can come up with a better name for this summer festival of blockage. The interesting thing to observe will be how long it'll take someone to spring them, and who. Jinx? PJR? --SpinyNorman 19:11, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Jinx unblocks the Boss first, like the proper crawly bumcrawler he is, then the rest of them. Damnit Jinx, you're no fun. DogP 19:16, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
To be fair Jinx did unblock them all in the same order they were blocked --BoredCPer 19:21, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

So I wonder: was it Jinx who vandalized the WIGO page? Cranky, cranky. --Phentari 21:18, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Haha, well, whether he did or not, he appreciated the shout out! Hi Jinx! You can use the Red Telephone any time you want! (I also have a private extension.) PS, have you tried linking to this den of iniquity from CP? I think even "preview" will show you that you weren't the first to "find" us. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:14, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

Message to Jinx[edit]

Jinx you are a dumbass. Truly. It is a public forum. The only person that is denying this place's existence is Andy's "spam filter". We don't care if you are monitoring us. We don't care if you edit here. We don't even care if you vandalise the site, we can just hit the revert button. Seriously sign up. We don't care, it is just text on a screen. \approx\pi 23:02, 23 July 2008 (EDT)

And what does he mean, "gone quiet"? I think it's more that most people have "gone to bed". BTW, Jinx, since you're "monitoring" us, I don't think your recent wandalism and language were very Christian. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 23:06, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Just for fun, a glance at's "contributions" on wikipedia. --Shagie 23:15, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Hey you know what would be funny? if it wasn't us he was referring to! Hey, Jinxmyshoes, can you throw down a quick shoutout so we know it's us? Just type "throwing the rats in the trash on the wiki" in a block or revert comment... ħumanUser talk:Human 23:17, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
White supremacy, eh? Wouldn't have thought it of him. For all his faults, he doesn't seem the type. I suppose Mr. 67 could be someone else. --Phentari 23:41, 23 July 2008 (EDT)--Phentari 23:41, 23 July 2008 (EDT)
Well, Jinx did add the item about the "ChristianMeansFreedom" name to the "Bias in Wikipedia" page, and that seemed to be something was interested in. It's not conclusive evidence by any means, but an interesting coincidence, nonetheless. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 00:00, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

What the fuck is Jinxtard going on about over there? Surely even he isn't stupid enough to think he "discovered" RW and it's some sort of great find they know nothing about. Is he? DickTurpis 09:47, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Have no fear, citizens. I am on Conservapedia, monitoring Mr McHue monitoring us. There is no problem as long as he does not start monitoring me monitoring him monitoring us...

Before I leave.....[edit]

I wrote a section on Ruling class for Conservapedia as JJacob which Ed Poor promptly decided was "Jargon" due to its overuse of the english langauge. Not to be put off, I came here as Ace and wrote this little number. Imagine to my surprise when this appeared on the other side. I had a giggle. All right then, see you fellas and gals.

Favourite JJacob moment[edit]

I was always suspicious of JJacob until I saw this post. I didn't want to out him but after I saw it I knew he was a parodist. Do you guys have any favourites? --Damo2353 07:42, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Why? Because if you replace "evolutionists" with Schlafly's Acolytes you get a much more meaningful phrase! :P Armondikov 07:59, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

It seems its Bugler's too. Hey Bugler--Damo2353 10:19, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

I knew for certain that JJacob was one of us when I criticized one of his edits, calling it a parody, and instead of getting banned like I expected he pretty much just kept his mouth shut. The Lay Scientist 15:11, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Jpatt on Knol[edit]

See here for the CP article. Opinions?

I think both "Effects on" sections are quite a bit off. I do love the "As we all know, Google hates conservatives and will bury their opinions" side comment, though. The Wikipedia section seems to completely misunderstand how a wiki project works (which doesn't surprise me since nobody in charge of CP seems to understand it, either). You can't simply overshadow Wikipedia by creating a platform and throwing money at it. You need tons of editors, and you need to give them incentives to stay. Just look at promising projects such as Citizendium, which had been praised as The Magic Cure for all of WP's problems. Today's status? A quick Alexa check says that it's not even as popular as CP right now. (WTF.)

As a general comment about Knol, I feel like pointing out this quote from the linked CNET article:

Authors can choose to close their knol so that no one else can edit it, make it completely open to others to edit--like a wiki--or keep the default "moderated collaboration" mode in which the author selects which edits to allow. "We think moderated collaboration mode will solve a large part of the problem" of complaints about accuracy that have plagued Wikipedia, Dupont said. There will, no doubt, be multiple knols on any one topic.

This sounds a lot like CP to me (Ken's pet projects as examples of closed knols and the "Liberal [noun]" ones as examples of moderated knols), with the only difference that Knol at least allows multiple knols on a topic. Still, my own quick prediction is that Knol will become a nice platform for CP-style "Teach the controversy! The Truth shall set you free! Liberals are atheists are homosexuals are deceptive cowards!" hate-blogging. --Sid 08:05, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Knol seems to me at what is on there at the moment to be another expert driven site. They have really only been moderately successful (although more authoritative). Andy could in potential go on there with his usual abortion causes breast cancer crap but with any luck about 10 experts will write counters if they care enough. \approx\pi 08:41, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Jinx v. Fox[edit]

So, I'm guessing Jinx didn't know who he was dealing with and thought Fox was just another plebeian editor to push around. Either that, or Jinx knew and was just being a total moron. Hmm, that's about 50/50, isn't it? --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 11:33, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Jinx has been around a while. It would surprise me if he didn't know who Fox is. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 11:34, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
I thought that, but Fox has been relatively inactive lately, and I question Jinx's capabilities for long-term retention --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 11:39, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
Yep, he knows, and it seems like he's counting on that to win Andy over in his protest. --SpinyNorman 11:57, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
Maybe it's staged to provide some entertainment for RW considering the total lack of anything interesting on CP recently. (save for the increasing absurdity of the Lenski affair, of course) Armondikov 11:42, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
But which side of the fence will Andy fall? Or will he just mix his metaphors and shove his head in the sand, as usual? Fretfulporpentine 11:45, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
Unless it becomes completely disruptive then Andy will ignore it just as he has ignored other sysop disagreements. (I know, these two only have block powers not the full nuclear arsenal.) Jollyfish.gifGenghisOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 12:01, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

Jinx, interested isn't the quite right word. Amused is more accurate. The only reason this is a blip on our radar, so to speak, is that the rest of you are so utterly boring at the moment. In other words, thanks for going out of your way to make an ass out of yourself. It made me chuckle. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 11:58, 24 July 2008 (EDT) P.S. Good to know you read us so frequently!

I think we all here know that Fox didn't get that user name without being as clever as a etc...

Wow! Peter Hitchens is a journalistic heavyweight in the UK. The younger brother of atheist essayist Christopher Hitchens he has very different views. I believe they were not on speaking terms for many years. Hitchens writes for The Mail on Sunday, sister publication of Fox's newspaper of choice, The Daily Mail; a right-wing, rag that specializes in frightening pensioners, home-owners and conservative Christians. If Fox gets PH to do an article on CP in the Mail it will far outdo anything that Ken has managed and will surely reinstate him to sysop. Personally Hitchens really gets on my tits but I can't deny that he has some mainstream influence. Jollyfish.gifGenghisOur ignorance is God; what we know is science. 15:00, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
I wonder what they'll make of the newspaper Peter Hitchens works for? I find it hilarious that he left "Teh Express" because the owner was associated with pornography, yet he now works for The Mail. Sample headlines from their website today: "Why Are Big Breasts So Much Trouble", "Party animals Chanelle and Chantelle", "Supermodel Petra Nemcova enjoys passionate kisses with mystery man", and so on and so forth. It's Hollywood Values gone mad I say. The Lay Scientist 15:17, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

It'll be like an ice hockey fight, he'll let them slug it out as long as it stays contained. Bondurant 14:45, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
  • This sounds a lot like those "Unstoppable Force vs. Immovable Object" problems. I think Andy will look away while Learn Together intervenes and either removes or defuses Fox's edits with some lame excuse about keeping the article "on topic" (with "topic" being "just the nice things"). Maybe he'll offer Fox to branch the criticism out into some minor external article. --Sid 14:51, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

I know that CP seems to think that there's some sort of conspiratorial thought process going on between people here, that we coordinate vandalism or whatever they perceive as attacks. I'm just curious - is this true? I am not active enough to be part of anything like an inner circle. But my impression is that any vandalism committed by members of this site is done of their own volition. Not that Andy would consider that to be true. There's also a question of what constitutes vandalism, which has already been discussed. It's probably safe to say that the constituency here does not engage in obvious vandalism - like writing "U SUCK" all over the main page or the like. - Lardashe

So, philosohpical question. If you think something (big or little) is particuarlly wrong at CP (other than "the entire site") would you bother to create an account to try to change it? or leave it to let CP show its own ignorance.

Parody. Bugler, JJacob, Samwell. It's one of the coolest feelings ever as a parody account to hear Andy himself give you praise.

S.T. Shrink That's what she said. 17:36, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
I guess I fall into that group that just can't stand seeing some the of the stuff posted there without having to weigh in now & then. I've often been tempted to just sit back and let the idiocy speak for itself, but what pulls me back in time & time again is the realization that there are homeschoolers & other impressionable types who might actually believe some of that stuff is true. So I post edits there that try to call out the facts or suppressed side of a topic, being a lot more polite than I feel like. I'll help move things along like Andy's PNAS response not out of parody, but to put his protests where they have to be defended fairly, and where critics are not subject to the censorship of the acolytes. I've never felt the urge to sock up or wandalize though - while I won't stop anyone from doing it or out a suspected parodist, I don't want to give them the satisfaction of feeling victimized by anything but their own nonsense backfiring on them. --SpinyNorman 17:53, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

I found CP first, and joined to sort a few things that seemed to be wrong for a conservative wiki. Of course, I quickly found out that CP is, in fact, a fundamentalist Christian creationist blog, not a conservative wiki at all, found RW, got banned from CP for...well, basically, trying to insert truth into articles here and there (like daring to suggest that Professor Richard Dawkins of Oxford University is, in fact, a professor, going by the incredibly weak evidence that a direct enquiry to Merriam Webster had them state he fits the dictionary definition of 'professor' and Oxford University, in response to a direct query, saying he holds the position of the Professor of the Public Understanding of Science), and now view CP purely for the lulz factor of the various insane ramblings that go on over there. Zmidponk 15:35, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

My thoughts on this topic go back to my original thoughts on the Obama article, and that is that it either has to get 100 times better or three times worse, and there is obviously only one way Andy is going to let the site go. It's actually hard for CP to get much worse, but not impossible. Trying to make it better is an exercise in futility. So I got a parody account and made the Obama article as ridiculous as possible. I think just about every edit I made was endorsed by Assfly himself, so it can hardly really be vandalism. I was banned for a parodist, but I don't think a single edit was ever reverted.

Word count[edit]

Did anyone else pick up on what Andy's doing to the PNAS letter? Knowing that there is a word limit of 250 words, he's expanded the letter to over double that. My theory is that it's intentional: Bolster the word count, claim the letter can't be edited (using some asinine excuse like "The Truth can not be reduced"), ensuring that the letter won't be published (and you won't become an even greater laughingstock) and still allowing the "They censor the truth!" tack. Or maybe I'm seeing deceit where none exists? --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 23:32, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

250 seems an incredibly short word count for a journal, other than maybe abstracts. I'll check PNAS policy, but I would be surprised. I think the 250 words came from an editor Andy has chosen to ignore. \approx\pi 23:49, 24 July 2008 (EDT)

250 words it is. \approx\pi 23:56, 24 July 2008 (EDT)
My guess would be that there is a word limit on letters (maybe 250), as there is usually little space in journals for letters. Of course if Andy can't fit the TruthTM into 250 letters he could always expand his objections into an article. But then he would have to provide enough proof to convince the reviewers to publish it...Antifly 00:05, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

As for the word count, the 250-word limit on PNAS Letters is why I had to trim Andy's original list down to a summary, with a link back to the CP page for the fully-detailed text. What's annoying is how folks ignored the instruction to keep the submission to 250 words while adding or revising the CP Page instead. Looks like Dinsdale's got to move this process along again, because I want Andy to have his full, fair, unedited shot at the paper without any censorship of his objections - and then see how science really works. --SpinyNorman 09:50, 25 July 2008 (EDT)

Take a look at ChristianityMeansFreedom's contrib dates, then compare to Jinx's contribs on CP. From September to December of last year, Jinx doesn't even contribute on CP, while CMF has less than a dozen edits during that same timespan. Suddenly, both accounts pick up editing on the exact same day, December 2nd, around the same time (WP's time is 4 hours ahead of CP). I found it a bit odd that Jinx would find this user's edits worth mentioning and defending, but after I compared contribs of both users, though with no conclusive proof, I have the suspicion that CMF is Jinx himself.

About the .186 IP... a quick glance gives you this and this - if I calculated timezone offsets correctly, these edits are just minutes apart and about the exactly same subject - "Focus on the Family" and the Hall of Fame. And this edit in the same timeframe uses the exact same source Jinx linked to. I admit it's no 100% proof, but I think that, combined with the IP block being exactly the same, you can safely assume it to be Jinx. Whether that ChristianityMeansFreedom account also was a sock is another question (the IP says it wasn't linked to the name - oh, and the shared interest between Jinx on CP and the IP on WP is another major hint about their connection - but I didn't compare the edits of the IP and the Christianity name myself) --Sid 16:45, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

So two non-sysops bashing heads may not be enough to make him act. However, Fox makes a good point: The combination of Hitchens and "trusted editors" making "questionable" edits or defending such edits might end badly. Andy should really consider who he is endorsing by not doing anything. --Sid 19:28, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

I enjoy homeschooling. There is no need for me to worry about unfairly imposed quotas or "teaching to the test"; I have (some) control over the curricula (within the limits of the requirements for the International Baccalaureate), control over the teaching environment and the pace of learning. The subjects I am tosh at (maths, for example) are easily catered for by engaging the services of a retired maths tutor at very reasonable rates. It isn't everybody's cup of tea, but then I'm not trying to make it mandatory for your family. What exactly is it about state schooling that is so wonderful that you want to make it mandatory for my family? Fox 14:37, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
I'm not sure anyone wants to make anything mandatory for your family, Fox. I see a lot of problems with the education system and would think long and hard about sending any of my progeny (I have and will have no actual children) to a public school. But not for any of the reasons that are outlined in CP/Andy's version of homeschooling....I've read his history curriculum, and if that man were teaching my kids, I'd want my money back - if that represents the best that homeschooling can do, it's pretty horrible. Raise your kids your way, I'd raise mine my way - no problem there....PFoster 14:46, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
Personally, I feel it should be the families choice, no one else's. Whether or not your children attend home/public/private school is really none of my regard. Furthermore, it really depends on everyone's individual circumstance/preference. However, to answer you question of what's so good about public schooling, I would have to say that it's the wider course selection, and increased social environment. </mindless ramblings> Pinto's5150 Talk 14:49, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
[edit conflict] Is anyone advocating banning homeschooling? Well, I won't speak for anyone but myself here, but I have nothing against homeschooling if done right. What some of us object to is Andy's assertions that you can't get a good education in public school, that qualifications don't matter and any parent can do a better job teaching their children then someone who actually knows the subject, and, perhaps most of all, that he is some sort of qualified instructor. The truth is homeschooling isn't a serious option for most people. Too often both parents need to work to get by, and the number of people who are qualified to teach even one subject at a high school level, let alone many, is not large. Then there's this idea that any sort of standards for homeschool instruction is some sort of intrusion of liberty, even to ensure "homeschool" does not consist of reading "Hop on Pop" followed by 7 hours of X-box and TV. That's my take on it. DickTurpis 14:57, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
(another edit conflict, and a comment that probably says the exact same thing as the above, but, ah well) There is a lot of possible good to come from homeschooling (and public education is obviously far from perfect). Actually, my best friends were homeschooled, and they turned out to be healthy, intelligent, well-adjusted adults. There's nothing wrong with homeschooling at all. It's when homeschooling becomes indoctrination (e.g. Andy's revisionist history) that I become worried. I think the situations where homeschooling (and home-bound schooling, which is slightly different) are beneficial far outnumber the situations where this kind of indoctrination occurs, but I also think it's fair to be concerned with the negative situations. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 15:00, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

That's the point I was trying to make - Kinder,_Küche,_Kirche. SusanG  ContribsTalk 15:36, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
Hm sorry if I over emphasized myself. I don't profess to support or denigrate any other homeschooler/homeschooling method; I just know that I am very happy with the situation in my household, and gave up a pretty well-paid position to do it. I can see why other parents would feel happier being involved in this than wage-slaving for some ungrateful, over-qualified under-mannered "manager" in a cubicle in Reading or whatever (should qualify: this user created cp:The Ragged Trousered Philanthropists nudge nudge wink wink); the joy of reading your 7 year old's comprehensive essay on the Greek city states will never be matched by what is effectively Pavlovian slavering after a pat on the head for making the shareholders a little wealthier. It isn't easy, and it requires a massive leap of faith to throw away that 40k and car. But your life adjusts, and your children (may) become happier, more balanced, less prone to peer pressure and more liable to make rational decisions based upon their own reasoning. As for - and I can't pretend that this isn't a major factor in many homeschooling choices - religion - my own children are not forced to accept religion. It is put to them, and as they grow older they will have the information at hand to make a decision. My eldest daughter, for example, has rejected Yeshua and considers herself entirely Jewish. My next eldest, a son, doesn't have time to consider religion currently, as he is too involved in physics and mathematics: he tells me he'll think about it "later". Next, a son, waivers on belief/disbelief. Finally, a daughter, thinks angels talk to her often. And dinosaurs. There is a level of joy involved in homeschooling that I can see would result in the statement that homeschool moms are happier - in general - than working moms. Of course, this is a meaningless statement without any data attached, and the experience is skewed by thefact that the happiness levels of either type of mom may be based purely on having only experienced one type of domestic situation. I don't know about anybody else, is maybe what I'm saying, but subjectively I can say that I've never known a simple joy which comes close to that which I experience from teaching my own children =) Fox 16:15, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

Yes, it should be obvious to all who have had their thinking adequately modified by testosterone that, when working in a non-liberal field with deceit-negative transformations, 8*6conserv=40. --λινυσ() 21:23, 26 July 2008 (EDT)
Actually, um, I figured that one out finally - Andy is a mutant, with 12 fingers... ħumanUser talk:Human 20:12, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

Admittedly I failed Maths A Level (That's the University entrance type o' thing for you Merkins), but I know there's no difference except that geekiness & therefore maths is more socially acceptable if you're a male. SusanG  ContribsTalk 00:35, 27 July 2008 (EDT)
Math sucks, but I assure you there are just as many men who failed out of Trig as women. But I loved the little dig about how "the guys can do multiple choice and the girls can do essay" crap. I kicked butt on both, thank you very much.--Kip 11:53, 28 July 2008 (EDT)

Sorry I got to this late, but does Andy have no ability to read? It says at the end of the article that more females than males sit this exam meaning that it is biased as females that are going to preform worse are sitting it were as there male counterparts are not. If the SATs had been a random sample he would have a point, in fact he would have a strong point, but as the SATs are self selecting you can not compare them that way. Schlafly statistics at its best. \approx\pi 18:25, 27 July 2008 (EDT)

"Free from bigotry"[edit]

Fox, I like you a lot, I really appreciate what you're trying to do, and I think you're obviously in the right with the Jinx situation. But "free from bigotry"? With articles like these approved from up on high, I'm not sure that's possible --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 20:25, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

It's over...[edit]

Look Andy's idiocy has caused him to allow a vicious anti-semite with basically the same ideas as CP go through. This battle is over. But not done. Also, Henry, unblock DJ. Just because he reads it doesn't mean he has anything to do with it. While your at it, Block Jinx too. I'm pissed. --US-O11 insignia.svg Gen. S.T.

I'm saddened, but seriously not surprised to see Andy being too lazy to look at the big picture. Again. A hundred points to Fox for the effort, though. The discussion could have gone better (You started on a weak leg by assuming that ChristianityMeansFreedom (or whatever the name was) is a Jinx sock while basically ignoring all edits made by the admitted Jinx IPs), but the end result would have been the same either way. Andy likes Jinx. Jinx rambles against Wikipedia and liberals. This makes Jinx immune to all but the most waterproof case. And with IPs, there will always be a 0.000001% chance that any bad edit will have been made by somebody else. Andy doesn't want to admit that he gave a Bad Guy his precious rights package, so he will pretend that Jinx is an awesome guy until the entire thing blows up in his face. And then he'll simply blame liberals in some way. --Sid 21:16, 26 July 2008 (EDT)

"A hundred points to Fox for the effort, though" meh...let's see him go mano a mano for a group he doesn't belong to - lots of opportunity for that on CP, and then I'll be doling out the points...first they came for the affirmative Action Presidents, but I never had Affirmative Action, so I did nothing...PFoster 21:28, 26 July 2008 (EDT)ht,
