RIP[edit]

No more spambots. Not even PJR is around to rearrange the deck chairs.img I wasted a lot of time on ASK, and while I mourn for its loss, I'm glad no one else will do the same. Occasionaluse (talk) 21:08, 12 November 2012 (UTC)

So it finally died. Acei9 21:19, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
Let's say it's comatose. It's been a week. Redchuck.gif ГенгисOur ignorance is God; what we know is science.Moderator 21:41, 12 November 2012 (UTC)
Shush, yous. Someone always goes over there when we talk here, or maybe there'll be a sudden rush of yecers. sterilesporadic heavy hitter 00:00, 13 November 2012 (UTC)
Zarking farquod, guys . I think you invoked a fresh vandal. LowKey (talk) 13:30, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
if Philip isnt watching his wiki he deserves to cleanup the goatse pics. Hamster (talk) 15:12, 19 November 2012 (UTC)
Just had a look and even more vandalism has been occuring, Philip should really lock the wiki if he aint going to watch it otherwise every page will probably end up goatseied :( Naca (talk) 02:22, 24 November 2012 (UTC)
I have been blocking and reverting vandals but I can't do it for very long. He does need to do something because no one is editing. Hamster (talk) 06:56, 24 November 2012 (UTC)

Return of Awc[edit]

apparently, finding nothing else to do, Awc has returned to aSoK to discuss the Horizon Problem with Philip. HERE Hamster (talk) 19:36, 11 December 2012 (UTC)

Jesus, how can he stand it. Acei9 19:51, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
I'm starting to wonder if there's something wrong with Awc. He's very articulate and politic but why someone would waste so much time arguing with someone so dishonest and so incapable of introspection is a mystery to me. I can doing the scientific reading and reading creationist material as sort of interesting but only because it entails learning something worthwhile. Philip isn't worthwhile. It would have been fitting to see him be incapable of getting along with others on every single website he ever tried dominating. Awc, stop monkeying with my dream coming to fruition fully.

Someone's wrong on the internet. sterilesporadic heavy hitter 23:08, 11 December 2012 (UTC) ADD: And watching PJR butcher simple math infuriates. sterilesporadic heavy hitter 23:10, 11 December 2012 (UTC)
I found the math bit the funniest part. Hamster (talk) 03:21, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

I hate myself for even looking[edit]

CP/aSK/creation.com, all habits I picked up at a dark time in my life that make me absolutely miserable. And I'm such a hypocrite for chiding people for giving this guy attention when every few weeks I can't stop myself checking to see whether he's done something hoping someone will talk to him. Anyway, 10-20k fiskings aren't unusual, but I've never actually seen a talk page post that's longer than 99% of articles on most wikis. 119k is fucking nuts. I hope he's ok.

Did the site finally die, or...[edit]

Did Philip forget to pay the bills? --Colonel Sanders (talk) 22:50, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Either way, I would have expected a last gasp. A call for donations, or a desperate search for another host. Maybe he was raptured? Sapere aude (talk) 06:11, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Nope. Temporarily killed by the host for overusing their hosting, but back. Ochotona princepsnot a pokémon 03:30, 30 May 2013 (UTC)

God damnit, Ace[edit]

Knock this shit off. I can't afford to get sucked in again. Occasionaluse (talk) 13:30, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

PJR must be really sad and lonely to keep ASoK going. It's never been picked up by the mainstream, there's practically no editors, and yet still he persists. Clearly the man has money to burn. --PsyGremlinSnakk! 13:45, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
It costs no more than $100US a year to host, and likely substantially less. I can get an installation of MediaWiki running on a $4 a month host. He's just a nasty man with an axe to grind who sits like a spider waiting for anyone to talk to him so he can do his usual thing. Check out his WP edit history for a great example of him turning a small discussion into a fullblown meta discussion about everything in the world. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 14:00, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
At least he has trouble keeping the thing up. It's not that I wish misfortune on him, it's that his site is so filled with lies that even minutes a credulous person might not stumble upon are worth it. Nutty Roux100x100 anarchy symbol.svg 20:46, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I was just happy to see my block expired. I don't plan on engaging him but I enjoyed inserting the latest data from WMAP and the Plank Telescope because it filled one more gap where his god hides. Acei9 20:54, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
His wiki has the usual markings of ideological conflict and conceptual incoherence. And he is a nasty piece of work. He mentions no true Scotsman in one section and then uses it in the next. Intereting at some level, but not worth it. Sterilesig.svgtalk 02:05, 12 June 2013 (UTC)

Mark the time and date[edit]

Someone finally convinced PJR that he was wrong about something. Occasionaluse (talk) 16:56, 2 October 2013 (UTC)
