Talk:Jessica's Law

From Conservapedia

I don't have privelages to upload photos. I would like to add Jessica's photo.--jp 03:05, 29 June 2008 (EDT)


As much as I sympathize with their cause, should we be advertising and pushing ANYTHING as official Conservapedia policy? If it is allowed, perhaps a sysop could write up rules. ---user:DLerner--- 04:58, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

Material copied from other sites

I removed a large chunk of the article because it was simply copied from the JML Foundation site. The "crime scene" section is also effectively copied from the NBC6 site, so that one will likely go, too, once I doublecheck which parts were NOT copied and if/how those parts can exist on their own. --KevinM 13:38, 29 June 2008 (EDT) way

Oh, you don't have to explain ahead of time. Jpatt has copied chunks of items for paste into an article in the past. Sometimes he'll do a find-and-replace for words to make it seem as if he wrote it himself. Obviously, with the way the section is written that you removed, he didn't even try to cover up the copy, interestingly a violation of CP Commandment #1, "Do not copy from Wikipedia[1] or elsewhere unless it was your original work." This would be his second violation of that commandment, although I don't think any action has been taken against the editor.--Jareddr 13:46, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

Second attempt at communication

Jpatt, I respect that you want to add trivia about how Jessica loved her grannie and how she enjoyed karaoke, you can see if it fits into an article about the person, but not the law. --KevinM 16:31, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

What is your problem, your beef with this article? Who is Jessica behind the law? Are you a sysops? No. In your mind, you feel it is your responsibility to delete in one swoop, without corrections. You want to correct me, fine. Like your French philosopher anti-Christian Encyclopedias is so important. You are doing a disservice to CP.--jp 16:44, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

I hope you don't mind that I moved your rant to the appropriate talk page. Let me first cover the off-topic parts to get them out of the way: The articles related to the Encyclopédie may not exactly be front page news material, but the article that started my spree was created by a sysop. See the history of Paul-Henri Thiry. And I believe I'm doing a better service to CP than you - I don't copy-paste from copyrighted sites, and I try to keep my articles focused.
Which brings me to the matter at hand. This article is called "Jessica's Law". Please explain to me what this section has to do with Jessica's Law:
Jessica loved her Grandma Ruth and Grandpa Archie very much. Also, she loved singing, dancing, jewerly, clothes, makeup, bike riding, cartwheels, gymnastics, cheerleading, and karaoke.
This is pure trivia, and it's not even trivia about the law. It's just trivia about the person who the law is named after. Like I said above: Feel free to create Jessica Lunsford. Then your trivia would at least be in the correct article.
I understand that you don't like to have your edits reverted (and always by the same guy), but that doesn't change the fact that your edits needed to be reverted. This is my right and duty as an editor; no sysop rights required. --KevinM 16:58, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

Let's just call it a law about children raped and killed. No mention of the life that was taken or the person it was crafted after. She is not important to the article or the law.--jp 17:05, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

Sarcasm and hyperbole don't change the fact that your additions were copy-pasted, trivia not related to the law, or copy-pasted trivia not related to the law. --KevinM 17:15, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

Please create Jessica Lunsford with the detailed material. HenryS 17:19, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

I am fine with that HenryS. Don't take this wrong, should I not include anything about Couey since he doesn't have a page?--jp 17:35, 29 June 2008 (EDT)

I would add needed details about him to the Lunsford article. HenryS 18:53, 29 June 2008 (EDT)
