Macro determine CP users[edit]

Is it possible to make a macro to see...

  1. how many users have registered there
  2. how many are blocked, and,
  3. avg time between registration and blocking?

-αmεσ (soldier) 10:51, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

The first two should be easy enough. Number of users is both in Special:Listusers and Special:Statistics (even though the numbers don't match - WTF! Stats says 14,344 while List says 13,873 O_o). And I figure that you can check the IPblocklist and filter out IP blocks.
The third one is somewhat tricky since there are a few factors to consider: the New User log was installed fairly late, and so you have to work from the time of the first edit (if applicable - I wouldn't be surprised to see users that registered silently without ever editing) there. A reading wikibot/script might be a solution...
Oh, and somebody here once did a blocking-related article... ah, there it is! Conservapedia:Block Statistics --Sid 13:07, 6 October 2007 (EDT)
With so many sock puppets (5:1 ratio?) the statistics would be meaningless, no? ----ИighŤ¤Ṭraiṇ ♦Τάļќ ǃ 15:31, 7 October 2007 (EDT)
Shouldn't be too hard... Ug! I'm so busy. I have the blocked users list on my computer already from a few weeks ago from the deceit stats on the hijacked articles page. The reg. users list shouldn't be too hard. It'd make a good histogram!!! VirileSterileyawn! 08:38, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

The trick paid cash[edit]

I'm amused that the girl is the one with the sword. Unca Sam's gonna git shivved! --Kels 16:47, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

Surely, the Conservapedia version of this should be "Fathers! It's your job to protect your sons' virginity!" You know, because those pesky homos are everywhere. --Jeeves 20:51, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

Placement Bias[edit]

Anyone notice this article? They did a one-up on librulz with staggering hypocrisy. 68.205.178.238 22:17, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

God, yes. Extra hypocrisy fun: Andy! Conservative! (I originally wanted to take one of his Atheism movings, but I couldn't find it in his HUNDREDS OF EDITS.) --Sid 22:57, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

Quote hilarity[edit]

God, I love this. Just noticed CP's William Corliss article in the Recent Changes and decided to check it out since the edits were made by Conservapedia's resident gay expert.

Somehow, this passage stuck out: "Science magazine New Scientist wrote regarding Corliss's work: "All I can say to Corliss is carry on cataloging"."

I wondered if it was maybe quote-mined. So, step one was to check the source reference. It wasn't New Scientist, but rather William Corliss's site, where the exact same quote is used to pimp one of his books. Next stop: Google. And hey, it was like some sort of happy family reunion:

Results 1 - 6 of 6 for "All I can say to Corliss is carry on cataloging"

  1. Science Frontiers Anomalies Search Results - William Corliss's site
  2. Science Frontiers Anomalies Search Results - same
  3. William Corliss - Conservapedia - Hello, Conservative!
  4. Christian-Forum.net > Geological Anomalies / Evolution Hypothesis - Hello, "kendemyer"!
  5. William Corliss - CreationWiki, the encyclopedia of creation science - almost identical to CP's article, but that's because this one was written by "Creationist", Conservative's CW name.
  6. GEOLOGIC ANOMALIES AND THE MACROEVOLUTIONARY HYPOTHESIS - BaptistBoard.com - Hello, "kendemyer"!

Man, it's a small world after all. ;) --Sid 07:49, 7 October 2007 (EDT)

Well...I thought that word "cataloguing" stuck out, so I googled everything but that word. At the very end of the article. However, the whole article sounds more like advertising if I'm not mistaken. I don't haff teh credenshuls of a skolar. 68.205.178.238 10:34, 7 October 2007 (EDT)
Interesting find! And funny how, even when you leave out the last word, the New Scientist article is the only result that is added to the list. --Sid 11:10, 7 October 2007 (EDT)

CP's new motto[edit]

"Welcome to Conservapedia! Where we list all things gay and are as analy retentive as our name implies."

Do you think Conservapedia is losing their family friendly status with all this gay talk?[edit]

Just wondered because they have a higher percentage of articles with homosexual in them than wikipedia does now.-- I am the AlphaTimSand the Omega!. 23:41, 7 October 2007 (EDT)

Not until they have the "brown worm" article. Ugh, homophobic trippin'. humanbe in 02:10, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Eh, CP lost that status a while ago. Although, I can show a group of students and tell them, "see, this is what you should laugh at." :D 68.205.178.238 02:43, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Didn't you get the memo? Telling kids how gay buttsex can lead to their dick falling off and their ass getting cancer (or something) is "family friendly"! I seriously wonder why CP suddenly thinks that all STDs and assorted things are family friendly now. Teaching them only about STDs (but not about safe sex or even vaginal sex, it seems) can hardly be the way to educate a normal child. Unless CP is actually liberal parody that wants to make conservative children so afraid of this evil "sex" thing that they remove themselves from the gene pool... --Sid 04:35, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
The only sex that is CP-approved is marital sex - with your first and only wife/husband. Yes, otherwise your dick falls off, your uterus dries up, and gawd smites you with his holy sceptre. Or, septer! Hahahahaha. humanbe in 04:41, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Damn, you're right (although that doesn't quite explain cp:Child :P) --Sid 04:46, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Gay Bomb and 9/11[edit]

Horribly enough, I can't tell if Rob is kidding or not. I laughed long and hard, but a nagging part of me still goes "You know that he may very well be serious." --Sid 04:42, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Doubt he is kidding, but I can't wait to see his response to Karajou. Also, the reference they have shows the idea came from the Air Force, and that's it. I can't find "Clinton" in any article related to the gay bomb, not even to say "during his presidency." MUST BLAME CLINTON ANYWAY! H8! 68.205.178.238 11:24, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
I guess he's kidding only himself? 68.205.178.238 12:53, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
LOL! Spoke too soon! Jesus tapdancing christ! 68.205.178.238 13:01, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
The Gay Bomb is now on one level with AIDS, Venona, and Watergate. Jesus, this reminds me of DBZ, where a simple issue is elevated to a global catastrophe. Only difference is that, unlike in DBZ, only Rob continually increases his Power Level while his opposition only stares in confusion. In fact, it looks more like this (can't hotlink - go to page 3) to me. (Disclaimer: Buttlord GT is a hilarious DBZ parody, but not exactly family friendly due to language and other stuff. The "language" part also applies to the linked page.) --Sid 14:04, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Boru[edit]

Gotta be a troll! (or am I stating the obvious?) Susantalk to me 09:45, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

He and TK got together quickly. Reminds me of that episode of Family Guy where Falwell and Robertson start making out after the rapture. 68.205.178.238 11:24, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
I am 98.76% certain that Boru is a sock being run by one of the sysops, likely TK himself. --Kels 12:06, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Maybe Boru is the real deal, and TK is Boru's sock.--WJThomas 12:59, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Maybe you are Boru's sock, hmm...maybe you're ALL Boru's socks!! --Kels 16:57, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Calling me Boru is deceitfully liberal, something that most liberals do 98% of the time. See deceit. Godspeed. >=O 68.205.178.238 20:24, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Nah, Boru is singular and genuine (a genuine parodist, that is). I look forward to more of his work. 206.248.152.74 17:21, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

I love this guy! Not like some of the sysops there love him, mind you, but nonetheless, brilliant stuff - and unlikely to ever be changed, either. 76.10.147.16 17:27, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

This one comes off as a bit odd, probably just TK being his usual addled self. He blocks Maestro, apparently because he's giving lip to Boru, of all people. But he'd already blocked Boru for two weeks, so what's the point? --Kels 21:17, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Dawkins flap[edit]

The talk page on dawkins just gets more and more interesting as Andy reasons himself back into the stone age. I wonder who could have ignited this kind of debate? It must have had an intelligent designer.75.62.26.189 11:25, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Andy's just digging in his heels more and more, just to avoid admitting that his original entry was nothing more than petty and spiteful. He certainly seems willing to stake whatever little credibility he thought he had on this doomed argument, though. Notice he's picked up Ken's "you didn't cite any specifics" even though in the previous section someone did exactly that? He's quite obviously lying now, and seems unaware that anyone's figured it out. --Kels 11:43, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
"Anything I say three times is true!" Susantalk to me 11:56, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
He's aff his heid. He wis aye aff his heid, an will aye be aff his heid. He's a sairious heidbanger. The mannie needs helpin! Auld Nick 12:05, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

You know, someone should save these conversations as a teaching tool, to explain why despite all evidence some people deny things like evolution, relativity and global climate change. If someone can still maintain an obvious lie and character assassination in the face of such painstakingly explained evidence, then there's something seriously wrong with them in a fundamental(ist) way. This really is quite clear and instructive in Andy's "defenses". --Kels 12:10, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Do the CP pillocks deny global climate change or just that human activity is responsible for it? WhatIsG0ing0n 12:57, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Depends on the pillock. Earlier on, before things started to get overwhelmingly obvious and their own leaders started making statements about it, the general consensus was that it wasn't happening at all and some of them are still like that. The next step was to downplay it, and finally we're seeing them say there's no human influence and we can't do anything anyway, so why change our ways? I assume the ultimate position will be that the "liberals" or whoever allowed the situation to happen despite the best efforts of their people.

This should be interesting. Over at Dawkins' forum people seem to be mentioning the need to write a letter to CP's hosting company for the slander that Andy did to his article on CP. I wonder how that will go down since Andy seems hell bent on slandering Dawkins to the point of lieing about his credentials?-- I am the AlphaTimSand the Omega!. 16:28, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Muwahahaha! I have an inordinate control over teh tubes and what beautiful ooze pours forth!162.82.215.199 16:35, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
I strongly suspect that if Dawkins did send Andy a "stop lying about me" letter, Andy would just start screaming about T3h evul fascist Libruls are trying to SUPPRESS OUR FREE SPEECH!1!!@!@!!one!. Which doesn't mean I wouldn't enjoy seening it happen... --SockOfGulik 17:31, 8 October 2007 (EDT) (whatever happened to "Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor", anyway? Did someone figure that only literally means the guy living next door?)
Man, reading that talk page is classic. You've got 3-4 people essentially trying to clear up a dishonest attempt by assfly to call Dawkins a liar, and assfly, endlessly answering "no, no, no, I'm right", each time looking dumber and dumber. And his "analogies" are just lame. Better would be to ask "Is a professor at the Harvard Business School a Harvard professor?" Gee... And Dawkins should spend a couple of bennies and get a lawyer to send a pro forma complaint to siteground (and cc: thesmokinggun, of course!). Just for the lulz. humanbe in 18:17, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Boo, Jenkins and Ajkgordon seem to have given up. OurMike is still spear-heading, but it'll only be a matter of time I guess. The worst they could have done is give up, as it just feeds Andy's "I can't lose" ego. Also, WTF is with TK's poetry on Andy's talkpage? 68.205.178.238 18:59, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

(aside: Wonder if TK knows that Coleridge was so high on opium when he wrote Xanadu that he was unable to finish it after the man from Porlock had been & gone. Susantalk to me 19:47, 8 October 2007 (EDT))

Maybe he is trying to woo his master for teh buttsekes.69.216.116.212 19:27, 8 October 2007 (EDT)


Uh-oh... Down swings teh banhammer for Cornovius... 206.248.152.74 19:58, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Blocked for a day!... for "deleting factual material", but he sure threw the gauntlet down by calling Andy's edits as deceit. Kenservative is adding his own crap to make the article look even worse. Wassail, Cornovius. 68.205.178.238 20:16, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
Maybe that's Ken's clever damage control plan. It looks like Andy's heading towards actionable libel, so Ken inserts so much garbage that the article isn't even about Dawkins any more. Problem solved! --Kels 20:22, 8 October 2007 (EDT)
And now, Ed joined to "improve" the article even more! At this rate, Rob might soon join in to add his own "improvements"... I can hardly wait :D --Sid 20:29, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Nancy Pelosi is bisexual?[edit]

I'm actually not sure how to explain it, but I got two theories:

  1. If I recall correctly, Joaquin has a history of adding stunningly unrelated "See also" links, so this might just be one of his "Brain switched off, the rest activated Cruise Control" moments
  2. Conservapedia slowly tries to bypass the commandments by exploiting the "See also" links as some sort of drive-by smearing. I think TK mentioned something about "See also" links recently... one sec... ah yes: They "may or may not have anything at all to do with the article subject" - Of course, having a name like Pelosi in an article about Bisexuality creates a link for the reader, but nuh-uh, that's, like, totally not their intention. At all.

I'm not sure what to consider to be more likely. The realistic/pessimistic part of me thinks that CP recently switched into Attack Mode (Clinton and Gay Bomb, tons of homosexuality articles, new liberal-themed articles like "Liberal tools", Dawkins, etc. etc. etc.) and that this case is just another step. The rest of me thinks that that would give Joaquin too much credit in this case - he often struck me as a sort of random lemming in a crowd of rabid squirrels. --Sid 13:55, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

Bushisms[edit]

Nothing says carefully researched, totally neutral encyclopaedia article like getting the facts totally and utterly wrong and then adding a personal attack to really ice the cake. The phrase "Bushisms" was originally coined for daddy Bush, who in his way was just as creative at mangling the language. Also, how in the name of goat do you misspell a saying? --Jeeves 16:22, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

Rob and teh Ghey Bomb[edit]

As... fantastical as this article is (as well as it spilling onto the Clinton article), the subject seems to have occupied a lot of CP news lately (5 times), and not all of it is that dissimilar. Could we maybe merge a few of these news points? Feebas factor 22:24, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

CP supporting evolution, who wudda thunk it???[edit]

In the CP Goat article, the opening comment says that goats are "closely related to sheep". If creation is accepted, as it is by CP, then under what basis are any animals related at all, and if there is no relatedness, what is the point of adding the "closely"? Only if you accept evolution is there any reason to suggest not only relatedness, but degrees of it. --Remarcsd 18:22, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

I'm almost willing to bet that CP's explanation will feature the word "Baraminology". --Sid 18:59, 9 October 2007 (EDT)

Clarifying[edit]

So why is TK removing the history of the articles by clarifying?-- I am the AlphaTimSand the Omega!. 08:04, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

He's deleting and recreating all the articles that were at the top of the Popular Pages list to get rid of the page view count for articles which were embarrasing to CP, like Unicorn, Parasite, Kangaroo, and especially Goat which kept coming up in the top 10 pages despite being deleted and recreated several times in one day. All of this while talking about how "page counts are absolutely meaningless". I wonder if deleting the most popular pages to clear the page count causes the total page views that Andy brags about on the front page to actually decrease... --Brian 09:50, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
No, the total page views don't go down. He started getting slightly arbitrary with the articles he was deleting too, like Hillary Rodham Clinton, United Kingdom, and Canada. As far as I'm aware those articles hadn't been artificially inflated. I'd like to know who was hitting Goat that last time though because they were doing it at an amazing rate - about 50-100 times a second. 209.139.208.178 10:22, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I am thinking of making a bot that will hit their most embarrassing articles and rapidly increase their page views. I wonder how they would like to be known as the wiki with GBS as their most view page?-- I am the AlphaTimSand the Omega!. 13:33, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I believe the droid you are looking for is while [ 1 ]; do wget http://www.conservapedia.com/Goat -O /dev/null; done --Jeeves 13:42, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
There we go, goat is now back in the top one thousand most popular articles. Officially more popular than Paul Wolfowitz and Slayer. You heard it first on Conservapedia, kids. Now some brave soldier needs to take over, before my ISP gets angry. Conservapedia: The page views for 'Goat' is growing rapidly! --Jeeves 14:13, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
We'd already been doing that - someone had put 'FBI', 'Parasite(?)', 'Unicorn' (I think) and 'Goat' into the top 10. After Conservative deleted Goat I bumped it back up into the top 15, and put GBS into the top 10, partly for embarrassment, and partly as a little sweetener for Ken. They stayed there for a few days until someone brought it to TK's attention [1] and then someone bumped Goat up to #2, which unfortunately was just asking for trouble. I think the fun's been had now, especially as TK now knows how to stop it. The only thing I could suggest would be to bump 'Homosexuality' up to #1. As I'm sure TK is reading this, feel free to let us know if you'd like the rank increased for any of your articles TK :) 67.159.44.138 14:34, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I guess what I do not understand is if they are so proud of those articles why are they trying to hid them from being top in page views? Is that not deceitful?-- I am the AlphaTimSand the Omega!. 14:54, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I'm sure some of them are proud of Kangaroo, Unicorn, GBS etc, but TK isn't that crazy, at least not in that way. 67.159.44.138 14:58, 10 October 2007 (EDT)
I figure they want their pet articles (right now, GWB, ToE, WP Bias, Homosexuality, WP, Liberal, Clinton, etc.) in the Top 10 to claim that those are the high-quality ones that many readers check out for educational purposes or to learn The Truth about the nasty Wikipedia. While that doesn't explain why GBS got "clarified", it nicely hides the fact that Conservative was practically the sole editor and wasted hundreds of edits on it. --Sid 15:01, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

I've been working under the assumption all along that the reason TK "makes mistakes" in archiving the Main Page when he doesn't do it elsewhere is to prevent people (i.e., us) from looking back through the history to see what he and others have been up to. Kenservative doing the same to his Gay Ass Disorder or whatever page is similar, because we've started to keep track of that stuff, and he doesn't want it highlighted. That way he can continue to lie about there being other significant contributors, same as he's been lying for ages about ToE. --Kels 21:07, 10 October 2007 (EDT)

Robert's Math questions to Andy[edit]

The ones that are getting people banned for asking about. Maybe someone here in the know could answer them so that students could come here instead of CP. --Edgerunner76 15:21, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

On a related note...[edit]

I'm putting this here since we've all seen the WIGO posts pointing out how such-and-such school shooting was a result of the public school system. Think CP is going to post a huge headline about this thwarted attack?

P.S. - If this was mentioned elsewhere, you have my apologies and can delete this posting. Sandman 15:24, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Meh, they'd probably blame it on the fact that he USED TO go to public school. Sandman 15:31, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Communism[edit]

I'm no expert on Communism. In fact, you could say I'm the opposite of an expert. But even I know that Rob is making himself look like a deranged idiot in trying to call an anti-Communist editor an apologist. He seems to be having real trouble with the idea that yes, you can criticize the concepts behind Communism and the states that tried to implement it in the same article. If I hadn't seen him in action so many times before, this alone would kill his credibility for me. --Kels 17:12, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

I too don't believe RobS is a real historian. Back in the day, I tried to add a "history of Communism" section to the CP Communism article, starting from the birth of co-operative movements in Britain through things like the first international, the Jura federation and the Paris Commune.

RobS, however, stuck a spanner[1] in the works very early in the endeavour, espousing the opinion that discussing the history of Communism is in some way akin to Holocaust denial. His attitude was very strange. I would expect a historian to be keen to discuss this sort of thing, even if he would add a right wing spin to the facts. Either RobS has had some extremely bad experiences at the hands of a Communist regime, or he isn't a historian.

If you asked me to judge based on the evidence, I'd guess that RobS is a young teenager. I recognise the attitude from my own teen years. --Jeeves 18:55, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Here's the deal. It is not our intent to explain any theoretical basis or quasi-intellectual history of Karl Marx, Fredich Engels, Vladimir Lenin, Communism, Mao, and other Marxist "theories" and "doctrines." It is to place these frauds upon the ash heap of history once and forever, as Adolf Hitler, Josef Goebbels, Alfred Rosenberg, Houston Stuart Chamberlain, National Socialism.
Karl Marx was a punk-ass bitch, and he never met RobSmith. Call me the Simon Wiesenthal of Commie-hunters. RobS 20:39, 11 October 2007 (EDT)
Those who forget history (or never understood it in the first place) are doomed to repeat it. If you do not understand the doctrines and what led to their adoption, you are not useful.

The problem is, and has been, Communism must not be discussed as any sort of "intellectual" doctrine whatsoever. It is not a philosophy, nor an economic theory, nor a social theory, not a even a poltical doctrine. It belongs to none of these categories of humanities. It is a cult, like Satanism, Scientology, Jim Jones temple, Heaven's Gate, or any one of thousands of mass psychosis that has plagued the human race since its beginning. It is not an alternative theory to anything. And its epitaph must clearly reflect that. RobS 20:59, 11 October 2007 (EDT)
Of course you are right--and wrong. It has usually become a cult, like Christianity. Where you are wrong is the whole rest of it. Of course it must be discussed, as must Scientology, Christianity, etc. We must understand what motivates the people who follow these doctrines, and what motivates societies to be caught up in them. Head-in-the-sand'ism never helped anyone.--PalMD-If it looks like a donut, eat it 21:09, 11 October 2007 (EDT)
I beleive I've outlined the basis of the examining marxist "theory," "the envy and hate that possessed Cain to murder his brother....Communism...did not... amount to anything more."

OK, wonder boy, let me school you a little. In the 19th century, a scientific renaissance was taking place. Many people felt that human societies, and the injustices therein, could be engineered in much the same way as, say, a railroad, if only how people operated in groups could be understood. Marx and his philosophical predecessors came up with one such idea.
They developed an economic model of human behavior, in which people operated based on their economic interests. I can go into detail, but you don't like detail. Communists believed that the evils of czarism and imperialism could be countered by a rational approach to human organization and government (forgetting that people aren't all that easy to herd around).
The ideas took hold in the fertile environment of industrial Europe and the ills that afflicted it, and people saw it as a modern, rational alternative to the oppression they experienced. They made an error.
Like many movements that attempt to manage large groups of people, most socialist movements became corrupt, totalitarian, and brutal, and replaced one form of oppression with another.
Then Ronald Reagan rescued them all.
Wherever people are oppressed, they will cling to ideas that promise hope, even bad ideas. That's why we need to understand things.
So history, far from being irrelevant, is quite important. Goatspeed.--PalMD-If it looks like a donut, eat it 22:45, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Er, yeah. I imagine your historian colleagues must be fascinated with your deep insights in to post-industrial society such as "Karl Marx was a punk-ass bitch." I'm definitely going with "teenager lying about credentials to give his opinion some sense of authority."

Here's the actual deal. Conservapedia is supposed to be an encyclopaedia. Encyclopaedia entries convey facts, they don't pass judgement since that would involve opinion rather than fact. When you're writing about a school of political thought, then you can write only two things about it. The first thing is a description of what it is, the second is the history of the thought and its applications. Conservapaedia's Communism article pretty much falls dead on both scores. At very best, it's an opinion piece criticising Communism, and even judged by that standard it's pretty incoherent.

If you really think Communism as an ideology is so abhorrent (as opposed to Communist government under, say, Stalin or Mao, which it is clear was fairly unpleasant, and not likely to be repeated on account of the main protagonists being deceased) then it is in your best interests to study and write about the history of Communism in political thought.

Communism as political thought was a product of the social changes of the industrial revolution. An increasingly urbanised population, the creation of the middle class, and the disparity between wealth of industrialists and merchants and those who worked for them. Many people of the same period of time came independently to many of the same conclusions about how things had to be changed for the better, and their responses were similar varying only in the magnitude of their ideas on how to implement change.

Contrast for example, Titus Salt and Petr Kropotkin. Similar, privileged upbringing a generation apart (although Salt was middle class, Kropotkin minor aristocracy.) Both had good prospects from an early age. Salt's response to the deprivation, disease and squalor of Bradford at the time was to build Saltaire such that his workers might have a safe, clean environment in which to live. Kropotkin's response to similar conditions in the Russian peasantry was to push for much of the same changes, but not for one group of peasants, but the entire nation. Different men, same conditions, similar solutions, different scale. As a snide aside, I'll also note that that arch-liberal Titus Salt was one of the first mill owners believe that the smoke from their chimneys was affecting the health of the workers of Bradford, against a background of dissent from his fellow industrialists. Draw parallels with the modern day as you see fit.

Study history and you'll begin to see what's required of you and your fellow men if you wish Communism never to become a political force again. You'll see how some of the very things that conservatives rail against, such as government regulation and the welfare state were actually instrumental in the decline of Communism as an alternative to the status quo in western Europe. Actual historians would be being extremely kind to me if they described me as an enthusiastic amateur historian, but actually reading about these things and attempting to draw conclusions is actually very interesting. I suggest you try it, Rob. Limiting your discussion to "Communism is totally evil, so I refuse to even discuss it" teaches neither you nor anyone else anything. Neither will it ever convince anyone when used as a debating tactic. --Jeeves 22:55, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Jeez, Jeeves, I guess we both couldn't stand the intellectual vacuum any more.--PalMD-If it looks like a donut, eat it 23:00, 11 October 2007 (EDT)

Rob, your blatant subjectivity, judgmental attitude to the past, and wildly anachronistic interpretations leave you a world apart from what actual, competent professional historians do. As such, I find it hard to believe that you have received any actual training in the historical method other than reading Toynbee, or if you did, something went extremely wrong somewhere. I have to ask if you can back up your claimed credentials with something tangible, such as publications? You're welcome to email me if you're concerned about your privacy. Also, I strongly suggest reading less Toynbee and more Marc Bloch. Heck, even Carr or Elton would be better. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 04:11, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

Why RobS is a Communist[edit]

I find it particularly hilarious that a virulent anti-Communist would have us crush Communism by denying its existence and burying its history. This is, in fact, a Communist idea - that is, the suppression of dissent and dangerous ideas to protect the state. The American proposition to the contrary is well-founded:

...[T]he best test of truth is the power of the thought to get itself accepted in the competition of the market, and that truth is the only ground upon which their wishes safely can be carried out. That at any rate is the theory of our Constitution. It is an experiment, as all life is an experiment. Every year if not every day we have to wager our salvation upon some prophecy based upon imperfect knowledge. While that experiment is part of our system I think that we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death, unless they so imminently threaten immediate interference with the lawful and pressing purposes of the law that an immediate check is required to save the country.
 ::Abrams v. United States, 250 U.S. 616, 630 (Holmes, J., dissenting).

This dissent, from Oliver Wendell Holmes, defending the right to speak about Communism, and advocate for it, is the foundation of American liberty - that ideas must be debated, and that democracy should win through debate, and that winning through suppression is the kind of evil that America fights against. I suggest that to reject this doctrine - as Rob would have us do - is to reject freedom, and fall into Communism's greatest evil.-αmεσ (soldier) 01:25, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

Yes, the "it's BAD" reason is actually fine in the short term but if one wants to protect future generations, one should document all aspects of where and why communism failed.

I suspect that what we're seeing here is a combination of three things: 1) Typical fundamentalist hatred of Dawkins, 2) Andy's usual aversion towards admitting he's wrong, and 3) a genuine confusion on Andy's part of how Oxford works. You have to admit that the workings of British academia are not always entirely obvious, and Oxbridge is obscure even by British standards. It's quite possible he simply doesn't understand how the organization works. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 10:17, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

Given Andy's history, and the history of the discussion, option 3 doesn't seem to be the case. Andy is showing every sign of looking very hard for any blemish on Dawkins' record, and any little weasel wording that can possibly cast doubt on the rest. And, of course, so long as the slightest shred of doubt can remain, he's insistent that the entire pack of lies stay in public view for as long as possible. We've all seen it in the past, and it's screamingly obvious here.
Giving someone the benefit of a doubt, and assuming good will, are right and admirable things, and should be striven for. But when one has many times betrayed that trust, there comes a time when you stop trusting them. --Kels 11:54, 12 October 2007 (EDT)

So, uh, what is my problem? Oopsie, I had to ask. Most of you have self-diagnosed by now... humanUser talk:Human 04:48, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
Mostly I'm too smart, too charming, and too good-looking. I spend lots of time online to avoid all the attention that might normally garner.--PalMD-If it looks like a donut, eat it 08:03, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Really? Impressed? *Blushes*... aw shucks. Wanna go out sometime? Certainly not OCD... come on. :O 68.204.199.236 11:03, 13 October 2007 (EDT) (I even predicted TK would unblock... I think you're right)

Sorry, my mamma taught me never to go out on a date with an unrecognized IP address; you never know where it's been. :P Aziraphale 21:01, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
Well, I did register finally, but it's just coincidence you said that. T_T Norseman 09:23, 14 October 2007 (EDT)

I like my image of ken as a child at a grown-up's party trying to get people to praise his drawings.
Come to think of it, cp as a whole is a bit like the gang of kids in the woods making a tree house with lots of arcane rules. There's the one nobody likes but owns the tree house, the bully who creeps around him enforcing his rules on the other kids, the creepy one with the dirty mind who brings the tit 'n' arse mags and then the peons who're tolerated as long as they follow the rest around cleaning up after them.

Deleting pages[edit]

We're gonna have to start copying things. As soon as we begin to mock things they delete 'em. What was it about Pine Ridge anyway? Susantalk to me 12:20, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

See you fixed it Kels Susantalk to me 12:32, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

"Classic CP article?" Hardly seems fair since it was created by a user who's been a member for less than a day... (He was also blocked for being the same user who posted it to WIGO so... deceit much?). 134.82.109.72 12:38, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
I think it was about the picture gallery. Dungeons and Dragons game boxes. Just a thought. --ИighŤ¤Ṭraiṇ ♦Τalk ǃ 13:53, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

I dunno, all I did was refresh the link after TK moved it. I never really looked at it for content. --67.70.19.23 14:16, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

It does appear to be still there! here, but with the re-direct removed! I think TK was just trying to ruin the link here. Seems he should be better spending his time warning Conservative about Homosexual content added to his "masterpiece". ----ИighŤ¤Ṭraiṇ ♦Τalk ǃ 15:19, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
It's just TK being a d**k.... No reason to worry, eventually he'll have to go back to servicing Andy and won't have time to do it. SirChuckB 16:11, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
Playing devil's advocate here, but they have some policy about capitalization of articles. It used to read "Pine Ridge indian reservation" before. Though, that's not to say the effort wasn't to ruin the link. Norseman 16:59, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
True. TK's been capitalizing articles (and working against the software to do so) for ages now. Plus, someone actually mentions capitalization on the talk page. So I think it's giving both him and us too much credit to say he did it to break the link here. --Kels 19:43, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
TK's "capitalization decision" was the most idiotic thing - he admitted he made this choice on his own, even though a half-dozen editors, (including other sysops) pointed out why this was a bad idea, non-standard treatment, and works against the wiki software - but as usual TK's ego is soooooo big he refuses to admit he is wrong. He's a moron. 193.200.150.23 13:47, 14 October 2007 (EDT)

Gender Differences[edit]

So then, according to Ed Poor, do flat-chested women make poorer mothers? Stile4aly 18:16, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Sexist bastard. Everyone knows manbewbs are better suited for comfort. Norseman 20:31, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
I have manbewbs and I'm a software engineer. Best of both worlds, baby, yeah! But seriously, get Ed Poor the fuck out of my profession. --Jeeves 21:41, 13 October 2007 (EDT)

Ed Poor and Racism[edit]

Now, now. Just because Poor Ed disapproves of black people, that doesn't mean he hates them. Oh, wait. That's supposed to be gays. --Kels 23:18, 13 October 2007 (EDT)
