Homosexuality and Conservapedia[edit]

I created the page Roy and Silo and added some information about bonobos [2]. Bugler reverts the edit [3] and blocks with the summary Mischievous obsession with homosexuality. Do not frighten the horses. [4] Discussion going on in [5]. AncientMonster 12:35, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Ed's response to Roy and Silo. --AncientMonster 12:47, 25 November 2008 (EST)
"Clean up of liberal bias" by Aschlafly. Another example of Ed's response to Roy and Silo. --AncientMonster 13:27, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Just a short note, Ed was so excited that he created two articles on same subject Homosexual behavior in animals and Animal homosexuality. These two are now merge candidates. --AncientMonster 13:32, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Sow the seeds and watch it grow, good job mister monster. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 13:45, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Roy and Silo has been copied here. Whatever happens it won't be lost. Proxima Centauri 13:56, 25 November 2008 (EST)

PC, please when you copy stuff like this over from CP to "save" it, put it in the conservapedia: namespace, ok? ħumanUser talk:Human 19:38, 25 November 2008 (EST)
That was cool. How do I put anything into Conservapedia: namespace? Proxima Centauri 12:05, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Just type "Conservapedia:" before the name of the article. Simple.  Lily Ta, wack! 12:23, 26 November 2008 (EST)

did anyone understand Andys comment on homosexual lifestyle ? I mean penguins dont have bath-houses, gay bars, hot tubs or Lisa Minelli records so what could he mean . Theres a good chance that I misunderstood him anyway. Hamster 16:09, 25 November 2008 (EST)

That's what he meant. They aren't really gay. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:38, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Conservapedia doesn't block for ideological reasons.[edit]

Eddie started something about Liberal Censorship. It developed. After many arguments they are trying to maintain that they don’t block for ideological reasons. Now see the fun over Roy and Silo. Proxima Centauri 12:54, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Equal rights for Gay penguins !! I think i smell a trap in Tdealogical article Hamster 13:29, 25 November 2008 (EST)
wouldn't every block for Liberal vandalism be ideological ? Hamster 16:04, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Meritocracy in Action![edit]

RodWeathers, newest block rights user. Less than 500 contribs, over 100 of which are talk page edits! AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 14:04, 25 November 2008 (EST)

In your liberal deciet you "forgot" to mention that those 100 talk page edits were obvious parody and ass kissing. Nobody seriously denies this. You strain credibility suggesting otherwise. JazzMan 14:13, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Soon maybe he can join the ranks of the full fledged admins with less than 500 edits. DickTurpis 14:31, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I don't think I've ever seen a documented parodist get block rights. Bugler et al. are suspected if obvious parodists, but Rod takes it one step further. Truly amazing. --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 14:46, 25 November 2008 (EST)
This quote from Assfly says a lot: You have blocking rights now! This is one of the best aspects of Conservapedia, and you will find value in it. Yes, Andy, the power you get from being able to block people is one of the best parts of your blog. What a sad, sad man. Godspeed 15:08, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I've asked this before, but it stands re-asking; Can the Assfly really not tell the difference between obvious parodists and genuine users, or he simply so starved for people to do the dog work he has to rely on people who don't have his best interests at heart. --JeevesMkII 15:25, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I think it's not so much an inability to tell the difference but an inability to care. "You agree with me unconditionally? You stroke my ego constantly? You tell me nothing but what I want to hear at all times? Welcome aboard!" --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 15:39, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Don't mistake Andy's purpose behind Conservapedia. He is little more than an internet troll who has devised an efficient system of bringing troll bait to him. Everything else is window dressing. Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 15:50, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I think that is a very good point. ħumanUser talk:Human 19:51, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I think Conservapedia is like a MMORPG to Andy. Imagine, you're playing WoW, you know that the hot female Nightelf you grouped with is probably really an overweight sweaty guy, but you choose to block that thought and enjoy the illusion of the game. Same with Andy; as long as the Bugler's and Saxplayers keep playing the game his way they can stay.— Unsigned, by: 131.107.0.113 / talk / contribs
Hot female nelfs?? There is no such thing, you parodist, you! Any fule noes that female belfs are pixellated sex on a stick. Fox 17:31, 25 November 2008 (EST)
By the standards of some of the fundy & right wing sites, they're NOT parodists. In fact they're rather mild. ToastToastand marmite 16:36, 25 November 2008 (EST)
While I can't be positive, I think I've got a grasp on Andy's psychology in a way that I hadn't. He doesn't care if they're a parodist or a true believer. He actually has universal contempt for everyone. He's only interested in working with anyone as long as they further his own plan/thought process. He has no positive feelings for anyone that he works with. He has no problem with hurting anyone he's worked with. This is reflected in the heartbreak of TK's parthian shot, and the entirety of his unwillingness to work to prevent the rampant bullying on his site. -Lardashe
I can only assume that Andy's incapable of suspecting anyone of parody unless it's the most patently obvious stuff imaginable, eg. "Liberals hate Conservatives because Conservatives are so well endowed and also Liberals want to make everyone be gay and atheist. Jesus-name-amen." Publius 17:48, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Trouble is: as things are he'd even leave that, or edit it to "... are so very well ... " ToastToastand marmite 18:33, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I wonder when Rod will start using just his initials?  Lily Ta, wack! 04:13, 26 November 2008 (EST)
I've been wondering that too. Not exactly subtle. Pseudomonas 07:41, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Probably just a coincidence. An unfortunately coincidence, really. Publius 11:14, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Then again, it might not. How more obvious can a parodist get? JazzMan 12:32, 26 November 2008 (EST)
I've been asking that since Bugler showed up. --Gulik 14:03, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Muslim[edit]

Claiming that Obama is a Muslim: Insight. Linking "Muslim" to Obama: Liberal vandalism. --Just passing by 14:10, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Oh, it's because of the dubious name. I have to agree: with a name like that, can't be but a communist. --Just passing by 14:23, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Classic CP irony again: Ed basically puts the link back. Looks like Rod's first block was ideologically motivated! :P AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 15:57, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I love the incongruity of the thing about Reverend Moon here. Now I understand why Ed was distancing himself from the "Obama is a Muslim Trope" a while back. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 19:27, 25 November 2008 (EST)

There is epigenetics, but it all boils down to genetic changes. Stile4aly 18:43, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Also, don't forget that holding a striped cloth up to pregnant cattle makes them give birth to striped calves. It's in the Bible, and God totally doesn't lie! --JeevesMkII 19:26, 25 November 2008 (EST)

CP Admins on RW[edit]

How many cp administrators are known to be members of this site (parody or all to real)? Publius 20:06, 25 November 2008 (EST)

  • Ed Poor has an unused account.
  • CPadmin1 has an account (not been around in a while.
  • TK is both TK and NightTrain (and Matt apparently)

Is there evidence that Matt is TK? Let's not accuse Matt without evidence. Proxima Centauri 16:47, 26 November 2008 (EST)

  • Jinx shows up as a bunchofnumber (see our page on him)
  • Conservative was Newton.
  • TerryH I think is his account.
  • HelpJazz is JazzMan.
  • NathanG (blocked, now JonathanG) are Kettlelick or what ever he calls himself.
That is all that comes to mind straight of the top of my head. - User \scriptstyle\int_{-1}^{1}1/\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 20:10, 25 November 2008 (EST)
  • HenryS is a variety of names, Bohdan being the most well known
  • Fox is Fox
It should be stated that these are just major players on CP, not necessarily sysops (e.g., TK and Fox are formers and HelpJazz is a blocker). --Arcan ¡ollǝɥ 20:14, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Greetings from Alaska everybody That about sums it up... plus what Arcan said... I can't think of any others off the top of my head and only a few of those accounts were ever used... I'm sure there are more CP users creating parody accounts here, but it's kind of pointless.... You really can't parody something that doesn't have one professed ideology. And a few have their own socks, again not needed, unless to escape retaliation back at CP. By the way, I think the Ed one was a parody account, just like we have a few ASchlafly and variations thereof. SirChuckBCall the FBI 20:18, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Andy has an account, but all he did was transform his userpage into a promotion about himself. Fox was an admin, but he's here and hawt as ever. I think Bugler made an account like Andy too. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 20:20, 25 November 2008 (EST)
No that was Ed Poor look at his contributions it has all the usual hallmarks of Ed's writings (plus the obligatory attempts to gain sysopship).
TK isn't user:Matt, NightTrain's nom de plume is Matt. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:25, 25 November 2008 (EST)
  • RobS was here, most of his articles tirades got moved to essay after a while. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:26, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Yes, Ed's account was apparently for real. I still vaguely remember how we had to slap him around here for his "Myanmar monk mobs attack police" CP mainpage edit before he changed it. And I'm fairly certain that TerryH also reserved his Temlakos name (Was that his alternate name? I think so, but I'm too lazy to verify.), but he just grabbed both names to avoid impersonators grabbing his name(s). Also, I think I once (briefly) chatted with some other sysop here... hm... --Sid 20:28, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Ah yes, it was BenjaminS (same name on CP, I think). --Sid 20:30, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Dear God was it Ed that posted that WTO riot picture claiming it to be the monks? That was I think my first visit to Conservapedia, I couldn't believe it when I saw it. The absolute bold face lie it was. - User \scriptstyle\int_{-1}^{1}1/\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 21:51, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I do believe that E.Wig is also missing from the above list. DanH was also here and possibly for a very brief period Geo.plrd. Unless I'm very much mistaken Fox was also Lulz and possibly Reynard. There was also Lurker but I'll leave that up to him to fess up to.  Lily Ta, wack! 04:52, 26 November 2008 (EST)
And don't forget that Fox is also Genghis Khant. Editor at CPOh, Finland! Why? 05:10, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Lulz was my first account here, but Lurker was nothing to do with moi. Fox 07:00, 26 November 2008 (EST)
I didn't mean you Fox, I meant whoever was Lurker and I think I know who it is.  Lily Ta, wack! 07:22, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Was HeartOfGold an admin on CP? --Gulik 14:06, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Not quite, but close. Heck, they wouldn't even let him have a Constitution Party userbox there, so he came here, where we not only let him have one, but wrote an article on them. Oh, and E. Wig was a TK sock. Anyone want to compile all the above info into one clean list? ħumanUser talk:Human 16:06, 26 November 2008 (EST)

EDitor in chief Poor![edit]

He was referring to Andy. ħumanUser talk:Human 20:28, 25 November 2008 (EST)

That's cute. Ed and his Editor in Chief . . .aw . . . Exasperate me!Sheesh!Not the most impressive contributor here 21:24, 25 November 2008 (EST)
I hope so, he is arrogant enough as he is without believing he is editor-in-chief to top it off. He still seems to believe that sysops jobs are to tell other editors what to do, the reason he was kicked off Wikipedia, you would think he would have learnt something from that. - User \scriptstyle\int_{-1}^{1}1/\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 21:29, 25 November 2008 (EST)
Oh, he did learn something. He learned to go someplace where such behaviour is perfectly acceptable and where the victims have no means of striking back. --AKjeldsenCum dissensie 12:13, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Betting?[edit]

Do we have a page somewhere here with a betting pool for things like how long until PJR loses sysop rights? Or until Fox gets perma blocked? Or until Bugler takes off the mask and shows Andy he was a parodist? If not we should make one i think :) --BoredCPer 22:09, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Never (he'll leave in despair), hours, never (he'll fiddle while it burns). Publius 22:51, 25 November 2008 (EST)

Um, I don't get it. DickTurpis 00:16, 26 November 2008 (EST)

There was a thing on cafepress (?) for a bit with various Schlafly merchandise mostly featuring "clueless" themed swag. However, I guess you have to pay them eventually just to be there, and it went away. ħumanUser talk:Human 01:05, 26 November 2008 (EST)
That was mine. Yes, in a callow and cowardly manner I shut my Cafepress "Clueless Values" store down because of liberal deceit because they charge you after ten days and no-one had bought anything in the previous nine days. Maybe some day I'll resurrect it - if nothing else it made me laugh. And I tried advertising it on CP, which was most amusing. DogP 02:52, 26 November 2008 (EST)
To be honest, I'd probably go for RW themed merchandise. ArmondikoVd hominem 06:42, 26 November 2008 (EST)

All it needs it Hitler! ArmondikoVd hominem 06:40, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Jazz, did we read the same book? In the one I read the kid is "not gay" at the end... or were you being sarcastic about the ending? ħumanUser talk:Human 16:14, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Today I was told that Moonies are only allowed to have sex if there's a picture of the "Reverend" Moon near by, watching. This may go some considerable way to explaining anything Ed writes about sex. --JeevesMkII 01:14, 26 November 2008 (EST)
thats kind of creepy, but so was "special knowledge of homosexuality" . I think of the birds and bees talk as being around 6 or 7 in a very simple and non-specific form. Much different advice when 15 :) Hamster 01:19, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Don't ever accept Ed's handkerchief if you have to sneeze. Or maybe do... but know what you holding onto. Somewhere there are instructions about where to send it for whatever reason - thats not a job you want (opening packages addressed there). --Shagie 01:21, 26 November 2008 (EST)
GAH!!! MY EYES! I'm a pretty open-minded guy, but that whole thing is just fucked up. All I can picture is Ed in a gown. And...the Horror. The Horror. DeadHead 01:31, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Really, that is getting creepier. Though again, we have them shying around the issue of what it actually is. No doubt they'll get an abortion thing in there. ArmondikoVd hominem 06:37, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Apart from Foxy's POV drivel in the second para, there's good lulz to be had in "soon will fill father's shoes or mother's high heels" and "parents may have appeased they're child's curiosity". (And surely there should be a link to 'Bristol' Palin in there... ) Cantabrigian 07:44, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Just to clarify - by "Foxy" that means "Foxtrot". My drivel is in other articles, not that pile of crap. Fox 09:01, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Quite so - apologies for any liberal confusion there. Cantabrigian 12:50, 26 November 2008 (EST)

This is something I've occasionally thought about, with regards to Schlafly type interpretation of the origin of morals. If God made women capable of conception at 12 or so, then doesn't that mean that God intended for us to be having sex at that age? Why arnt the Schlaflys of the world pushing for this? — Unsigned, by: 76.121.186.251 / talk / contribs

I saw a documentary a few years ago called "The Truth About Gay Animals", by gay comedian Scott Capurro. The most interesting part of it was that while he was making the film, he sent out an appeal for any film footage of gay animals in the wild. He got sent tons of tapes, mostly stuff that was filmed by TV wildlife documentary crews but wasn't included in the wildlife films (because it raised too many questions?). It included gay wildebeests & lesbian seagulls (no, seriously!) among other things. Anyway, he met up with Baronness Young (British peer & anti-gay campaigner) & showed her a bunch of this footage.

Well, so much for hoping this would be simple. When Ed handed me a one-month block for simply asking why he reverted reasonable nano-article edits by someone else, he asked me what I would have done instead. So I emailed him back with some definitions and conceptual explanations from sources like MIT, and said that if he unblocked me I'd update the article. So here we are, all playing nice, and he has to go and expect me to tie in ID nonsense.

Jesus taught in Greek[edit]

Aschlafly thinks Jesus taught in Greek. Jesus was Jewish as were his listeners. Aramaic was his native language and was the native language of his listeners. Why should he have used any different language? Aschlafly is an ignoramus. We know that anyway. Proxima Centauri 13:33, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Damn i hate defending Andy...
Anyhow. Yeshua, may have taught in Greek. The Greek old testamnent, the septuagint was a common text of the era, and had become increasingly common due to the helenistic age since the third or 4th century bce. Regardless, we have no way of knowing the truth here. If he existed he may have taught the educated (if they were ever his students) in greek, and the common people in the local language, Aramaic. EternalCritic 14:13, 26 November 2008 (EST)
I thought it was Hebrew, but the only part of the Bible that I've read (and any history pertaining thereof) was the front cover. Would explain why some translations of the good book are confusing and contradictory. In any case, Oh well, who wants to live forever? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha... DIIIIIIVE! AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 14:38, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Hebrew is a member of the Semitic family of languages. Aramaic is another member of this family. Aramaic of Jesus has a bit on it (surely influenced by liberals). There are a number of transliterations of Aramaic to Greek in the NT. There are also some "fun" mistranslations. My favorite is in Matthew 19:24 - the word for "camel" and "rope" are the same and depend on context for the proper translation.[6] --Shagie 14:54, 26 November 2008 (EST)
Jesus may have known some Greek, but the language he spoke on a day-to-day basis was certainly Aramaic. In fact, in the Bible itself, Jesus' famous cry of "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" is rendered by the original Greek gospel writers in Aramaic as "eloi eloi lama sabachthani" (Matthew 27:46). --Composure1 14:58, 26 November 2008 (EST)
I still like the bit in Behold the Man where it is actually English for "it's a lie....it's a lie...it's a lie." --Shagie 15:02, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Jesus probably knew Greek, the common commercial language of the eastern Roman empire, as he was reasonably well-educated and may have practiced a trade for a while. Still, I don't believe that a Jew living in Judea would have spoken in Greek to other Jews any more than a German would naturally speak to other Germans in English today. The Septuagint was mostly important outside Judea, in places like Alexandria, where most Jews spoke Greek as a native language.

Assfly's reaction to this is telling. He gave the new editor one of his patented improve or GTFU messages, even though the guy was acting in good faith and was probably right. Godspeed 15:32, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Sections of the NT make a little more sense if you start translating from the position that Messiah Yeshua spoke Aramaic: Matthew 19:24 as translated from the Greek reads "And again I say unto you, It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God." The word for "camel" in the Aramaic is gamla ... which also means "a large rope". Seems a little something in the meaning was lost between it being said in Aramaic, translated to Greek, and then to English. Meh, its all part of the Christian antisemitism which is still rife today. Its just one tiny step away from, "Well, He wasn't actually a Jew, He was a blue eyed blonde haired Aryan." Fox 15:37, 26 November 2008 (EST)

Not too long ago I found a Bible that was translated from Syriac scriptures. The preface to it listed a large number of mistranslations (ink spot changes the meaning of a word, similar shaped characters lead to mistranslations, and same word (Aramaic has a small vocabulary that depends much on context) being translated with the wrong context). It is really quite fascinating. For awhile, Gene Scott had a program on that TV that looked at the Bible and various translations - trying to get to the core of the message. In many instances he pointed out mistranslations by scribes where the same word doesn't exist and so the meaning (ultimately to English) got confused. His favorite source material was the Syriac. --Shagie 15:48, 26 November 2008 (EST)

"Further evidence that the homosexual agenda threatens a free society is demonstrated by the continued assault by homosexual bigots against many churches, including "Forty to 50 signs supporting Proposition 8 were found arranged in the form of a swastika on the front lawn of a Roman Catholic church."[12]" - just, wow.

Tough call.

Godwin's law at work. And before you jump all over me, I'm well aware of the Pink Triangle--but it's also the case that while homosexuals were rounded up, imprisoned in camps and killed by the Nazis, gays were never the targets for a mass-extermination campaign.

Is it Godwin's when there is a real historical connection between what you're arguing and Hitler?

Whilst gay people were targeted by the Nazis, comparisons of proposition 8 to the treatment they received in Germany before and during World War 2 is a stretch. However the protest was peaceful, if not tasteful, so they have done nothing wrong. Calling it hate speech is just a cheap attempt to suppress free speech, circumnavigating having to engage your opponent in debate.

His argument was that the murder of 8000+ Bosnian Muslims was really just mass-murder and that the Christian vs Muslim nature of the conflict was really more like civil war than genocide. He also had the odd requirement that genocide could only occur as a result of government policy, and since the Bosnian Serbs were a militia they didn't count. It's all still on the Genocide page.

It used to be a term of disdain used by the PC crowd objecting to the dominance of er... dead white males in the arts (Shakespeare, Mozart, Leonardo etc.) and demanding more study time for feminist, ethnic "minority" and living artists. Redchuck.gif ГенгисRationalWiki GOLD member 09:41, 27 November 2008 (EST)

'Dead White Males' is how a lot of hippies in universities described their English lit. programmes. They wanted to study roaming African poets rather than Oscar Wilde. Because Wilde is white and white is bad. I think that was their intellectual justification for this nonsense. MarcusCicero 14:25, 27 November 2008 (EST)

Actually, Marcus, Wilde is okay because he was gay. Irish helps too. I think you're guilty of over-simplifying the debate. The idea is to open up the canon. If you want to read the best literature produced in the English language, and understand the ways in which things like colonialism shaped English literature, you have to read Ngugi, and CLR James, and Lamming, and a host of others. Same with the advent of feminist literature--try knowing your way around English language lit without knowing Roy and Morrisson. Not possible. PFoster 14:34, 27 November 2008 (EST)

Of course I'm oversimplifying the debate. I'm hardly going to contextualise it in two sentances :-)

Unfortunately, there has been a movement in the last few decades in academia to view 'all cultures' as essentially equal - which they clearly are not. Equal in that they are equally valuable to their constituents, but not equal in intellectual purpose. I think the arguments you speak of could be covered in a general series of lectures rather than a specific subject, at least for undergraduates. Post-Colonialism, the only aspect of English Literature I am truly familiar with, is a case in point. People try and combine the twain, and the twain rarely meets naturally. MarcusCicero 16:34, 27 November 2008 (EST)

The movement has been more to "view all cultures" because most have some to offer, as opposed to only listening to the European imperative. Certainly some people may have run a bit far with it, but to ignore so many voices (the old way) was a terrible mistake. ħumanUser talk:Human 02:28, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Straw poll re: Obama's religion and birthplace.[edit]

So CP is having a straw poll on the burning issues of the day. i don't want to dignify their stupid and scurrilous charges with debate. What gets me in this is how they try to justify thier hateful positions by hiding behind the phrase "some conservatives," when they should be saying "a few fringe figures with no real political credibility whatsoever." Reading CP, sometimes the people I feel worst for are conservatives, who end up getting associated with the ravings of a bunch of morons and lunatics. This means you, Ed.

After reading the discussion on mummers I a have finally worked Ed's (and pretty much every sysops) angle, they don't want an encyclopedia they want to be "right". Right here is not defined by correctness, it is having what they write prevail regardless of correctness. The same thing as the axiom of choice the other day, it didn't matter if what they wrote was incorrect/incomplete it was what they wrote and so any intrusion by someone who knows more is offensive. It is not editing the articles that upset them per say, it is editing them in away that shows you no more on the subject then they do. With this sort of behavior Conservapedia is never going to contain more than what the sysops know or can find in a google search.

Spamming links to external sites[edit]

“Sorry you got blocked. If you’re a Christian these wikis may be better for you. If you’re an atheist try one of these. If it’s clear which a user is I give only one of the links. Most types of Christianity are less extreme than Conservapedia.

They delete the comment and block me as fast as they can. Recently they called it, "Spamming links to external sites". Clearly they mind.

Classic Jpatt, Classic Conservapedia Mixed Message...[edit]

A project meant to present a message of co-existence and tolerance between Jews, Christians and Muslims is (see section: The Message") "a great message to teach. To love thy neighboor.

The Jews and Christians are tolerant people but don't tolerate evil. " PFoster 23:02, 28 November 2008 (EST)

To show just how little he's changed in his style, and what an awful editor he was and is at WP, see the original version (keep in mind he had been editing for 4 years when he started this "article". DickTurpis 18:16, 29 November 2008 (EST)
Oh wow, and he even tried to spam user pages to keep it from being deleted. I mean, that's got to be Ed, right? --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 20:57, 29 November 2008 (EST)
Isn't canvassing support against the (WP) rules? (IP address is AOL - doesn't seem likely for Ed, but who knows?) ToastToastand marmite 21:23, 29 November 2008 (EST)
Definitely against the rules. I dunno...just the way the message goes seems so Pooresque to me. --Purple George!YossieSpring in Fialta 01:13, 30 November 2008 (EST)
Even a few edits later it still looked horrific. Oh, and he even mentioned himself in that article, too. Dreaded Walrus 01:17, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Pi's inability to read[edit]

Earlier some on pointed to the Edmund Ward Poor on Conservapedia where Ed talks about himself. I had a look through wikipedia and found him doing it their as well. First of he kicks it off Ed style with nothing but a link then he adds detail with no understanding of how the wike markup works. Then he does the Ed classic cutting the article down. The he adds himself like he is important. I know it has been said before but he is a arrogant prick and how, in all that is good, did he end up a bureaucrat there? - User \scriptstyle\int_{-1}^{1}1/\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 05:40, 30 November 2008 (EST)

I've got ed on my WP Watchlist - he's funny! There's times this page ought to be WIGOED instead of WIGOCP. ToastToastand marmite 06:07, 30 November 2008 (EST)
Can we start a WIGOED off shoot you reckon? As it is we have to achieve this page now every two or three days, if we remove Ed we will take about 20% of the content away. - User \scriptstyle\int_{-1}^{1}1/\sqrt{1-x^{2}}dx 06:19, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Andy vs. Civil Rights[edit]

Oh, dear. It's pretty decent so far, being just a point form timeline, but with Andy it's not so much a question of is he going to fuck it up, but how. Worth watching, in that train wreck sort of way. --Kels 13:24, 29 November 2008 (EST)

I'll tell you exactly what will happen here--embrace MLK (Christian, conservative) in his "I have a dream" mode, show how Christianity brings out the best in the nation, allows it to work for social change and right past wrongs. Ignore later-day MLK and his profoundly militant criticism of American imperialism and the Viet Nam war, which he tied closely to domestic race issues. Minimise the work of Democrat Presidents JFK and LBJ re: Civil Rights. Paint Black Panthers/Angela/Stokely/ etc. as communist/communist sympathizers/terrorists. PFoster 13:32, 29 November 2008 (EST)

Wikistalking Ed[edit]

Like a dog returning to its vomit Ed keeps returning to WP to belabour the point (that he was right all along) here about "undue weight" & here about "truth ;which a) has a liberal bias and b) is totally foreign to him. (on truth he comments thusly:"essay, which I hope to see made into a guideline if enough contributors agree with it"). The man never knows when he's beaten, grant him that. ToastToastand marmite 15:55, 29 November 2008 (EST)

It's part of the ongoing campaign to get creationism into the evolution articles, and to a lesser extent get denialism into the global warming articles, by presenting them as "minority views" rather than religious/corporate/political gambits. Simply sticking them in by force wasn't working, so people like Ed are trying to change the actual site rules so they can be gamed easier. Presumably, one of the reasons he wanted his adminship back is so he could have a greater voice in any discussions. --Kels 17:08, 29 November 2008 (EST)
... and did we know Ed was half Jewish? Makes his persecution (intended word!) of Fox seem rather ...ahh ... strange. (& love the way he drops in "I may have been the 188th person to sign up here, ...") ToastToastand marmite 20:06, 29 November 2008 (EST)
188th Wikipedian isn't too impressive, he should call himself Wikipedia's first moonie-christian-muslim-jew. --JeevesMkII 20:28, 29 November 2008 (EST)
He is, indeed, all things to all people. --Kels 23:05, 29 November 2008 (EST)

Ed's writing class didn't exist?[edit]

That's not possible! On November 20th, only 2 days after passing out leaflets on street corners, he was teaching two classes: one for 3rd graders, and one for 7th graders, here. Gauss 18:47, 29 November 2008 (EST)

If he did it was only for a week...-caius (advocate) 19:01, 29 November 2008 (EST)
That combination of edits moves Ed on my "creepy meter" to OH FUCK BROKEN DAMMIT I have to apply some of my irony meter improvements to it to defend from COMPLETE GROSS OUTS. Sorry for shouting. ħumanUser talk:Human 22:46, 29 November 2008 (EST)
Creepometer overload, from a massive burst of disturbatron rays! --Kels 23:07, 29 November 2008 (EST)
d-i-s-t-u-r-b-a-t-r-o-n... disturbation... mast-... had to take another glance since this is Eddie we're talking about. Maybe his class was about bullying others to do the work for you, since he's the A-class type to achieve that. AndyToad.gifNorsemanCyser Melomel 11:47, 30 November 2008 (EST)

Presidential Line[edit]

I wonder if they will realize that the President pro tempore of the Senate is Robert Byrd, not the majority leader.--TimS 20:26, 29 November 2008 (EST)

when img bot fails[edit]

Like on the current Ed Poop vs. Fox crap. Should we delete the failed images and uno the img tags? Change the img tags to "no"? Halp! ħumanUser talk:Human 23:17, 29 November 2008 (EST)

Disintigrated..[edit]

TK is the most disgusting, poor excuse for a human being... after continually changing Fox's user page, TK had "CPAdmin1" delete it entirely. TK is back! With his power-tripping, intimidating, manipulating, and just plain gross ways, CP has no hope, and I have finally stopped caring. (yes, I am ashamed to admit that I did actually care at one time). Congrats TK, you must be very proud of yourself. 85.195.119.22 23:26, 29 November 2008 (EST)

Hey, me too! JazzMan
If TK DOES destroy Conservapedia, he'll have succeeded where we've failed. I respect him for that... that is, for his impressive evil and malignity, apparently more potent than logic, reason, and wandalism.-caius (advocate) 23:45, 29 November 2008 (EST)
I find it hard to believe that Tim would let himself get manipulated into doing anything for anybody that would be detrimental to the site. He's smarter than that...PFoster 23:48, 29 November 2008 (EST)
To go by what I've seen of Tim so far, I suspect he deleted his page to get rid of the rather vile crap Ed was pulling, regardless of anything TK-related. Mind you, I haven't seen all of what went down, I'm just going by the personality he's displayed so far. --Kels 00:14, 30 November 2008 (EST)
I deleted it because it wasn't doing anyone any good in any of it's forms, and since 1 of the options was definitely bad, and the other would simply result in fighting, I thought it best to just delete it. --CPAdmin1 00:58, 30 November 2008 (EST)
Well, at least the deletion of a departed editor's user page is better than hijacking it like Ed and TK did. --SpinyNorman 12:31, 30 November 2008 (EST)
I still believe TK was behind it. It sure looks like he wanted Fox's page deleted by what he wrote in this diff-Revision as of 01:29, 29 November 2008 TK (Talk | contribs) (actually, a user deleting himself shouldn't have the template on the page, nor should they have any page at all. policy has been to just delete the pages.) So then CPAdmin deleted it. At least Learn together had the backbone to restore the page. 85.195.123.25 13:31, 30 November 2008 (EST)
TK's an ass. There is no policy. It's one of those things that he's claimed to have talked to Andy about, but can't prove it, and doesn't want you to ask Andy about. Because he's the real leader, right. JazzMan 18:43, 30 November 2008 (EST)
