Promotion

Thanks a lot Mr. Schlafly, I promise to make good use of my new rights. - PetyrB 12:33, 29 June 2014 (EDT)

Meritocracy

Andy, you have repeatedly stated that Conservapedia is a meritocracy, and you often rewarded editors by bestowing rights on their accounts. Therefore, I have to ask: has User:PetyrB some merits besides those which are on display here at Conservapedia? Otherwise, the promotion of his account is rather surprising:

  • His account is just a week old. The only other other account which I remember to have risen so quickly, was User:Markman
  • He hasn't made any substantial edit to an article, or started a new article
  • For an observer, his greatest merit seems to be that he agrees with you in everything.

I'm surprised how quickly User:PetyrB picked up the peculiar lingo of Conservapedia, terms like "talk pollution", "last wordism". Do you think he is such a fast learner? I remember the pattern, and I've seen the little atrocities (deleting comments, petty insults) before! Are you interested in repeating history over and over again?

--AugustO 15:28, 1 July 2014 (EDT)

User:PetyrB is another Markman/Bugler. Consider blocking him now. So far my track record is 100% being right when indicating someone is an insincere editor. And I don't expect to see User:PetyrB adding a lot of content to main space articles.
Here are 3 acid tests to consider in the future: 1) Is he/she creating a significant amount of main space article content? If no, this is definitely a red flag. 2) Does the person have an aggressive personality? If so, then they may be trying to get rid of good faith editors. 3) Does the person use language that I use or praise my favorite projects at Conservapedia? If so, the person may be engaged in mirroring in order to quickly gain rapport. Conservative 16:35, 1 July 2014 (EDT)
I think that you two are overreacting. AugusO, you talk as if Andy has officially made me his second in command. In reality, the promotion I have been granted is rather modest. He has given me blocking rights and Skipcaptcha. That's it. You stated that I "hasn't made any substantial edit to an article, or started a new article". I don't see why this is relevant for me to have block rights, you don't need to write any article in order to properly block a spammer, a vandal or someone with an inappropriate username. As far as I gather, Andy has given me blocking rights for my work in reverting vandalism, not for any edits I have made.
User:Conservaitve wrote "User:PetyrB is another Markman/Bugler." How exactly did you reach this conclusion? I have lurked for some time on Conservapedia, and I'm aware that there are some mischievous vandals who try to insert parody into our wiki. Why do you think I'm one of them? Do you find hints of parody in any of the edits I have made so far?
Anyhow, the reason why I came to CP is to contribute, not to be endowed with blocking rights. Should Andy revoke my blocking rights, it would not cause me any grief (although I do want to retain the Skipcaptcha, it is helpful when editing). I just hope that this exchange of ours will soon forgotten and that our next interactions on this website will be more cordial. - PetyrB 16:54, 1 July 2014 (EDT)
PetyrB, please feel free to prove me wrong by creating a significant amount of new main space content.Conservative 19:11, 1 July 2014 (EDT)
Creating more content for CP is why I registered here. It will take me some time to reach impressive achievements since I'm relatively inexperienced at wiki-editing, but I hope that within a few months at the most I'll be able to show you that I mean well. - PetyrB 15:02, 2 July 2014 (EDT)

Based on IP address research that Karajou just performed, the evidence is pointing to PetyrB being user Markman/Markoman. Conservative 16:39, 7 July 2014 (EDT)

Andy, PetyrB went on a spree to replace every occurrence of "Son of Man" by your "translation". I tried to undo these edits, as I think that the last word on this matter shouldn't be written by someone like him. --AugustO 17:27, 23 July 2014 (EDT)

George H. W. Bush

Are George H. W. Bush and Mike Crapo Conservatives or RINOs?--JoeyJ 05:16, 5 July 2014 (EDT)

George H. W. Bush was a RINO. I don't know enough about Mike Crapo to say.--Andy Schlafly 10:44, 5 July 2014 (EDT)
There was a place in my heart for Bush until he "chucked aside my free market principles" and he came out in support of the banking bailout. Nowadays, I call him George "I chucked my principles" Bush. Without principles, you're not a man at all. PeterKa 22:51, 5 July 2014 (EDT)

I suggest banning the parodist JamesWilson

I suggest banning the parodist JamesWilson or at the very least stripping him of his block rights.

JamesWilson just gave a bizarre definition of fornication. Namely, he claims fornication includes sex within marriage not intended for procreation.[1] Setting aside the morality of sex inside of marriage not intended for procreation, this is certainly not fornication. Merriam-Webster, for example, defines fornication as "consensual sexual intercourse between two persons not married to each other".[2]

Secondly, he indicated on PetyrB's talk page that he wanted to have private email communications with him when I challenged PetyrB on being Markman the parodist. No doubt to give him suggestions on how to avoid detection as far as being a parodist.

Thirdly, correct me if I am wrong, but I seem to recall that JamesWilson's biggest "contributions" are to Elvis/Little Richard, etc. articles.

Fourthly, he has a penchant of attempting to curry favor with you which was a trait of Bugler, Markman, etc.

Fifthly, I have always suspected JamesWilson to be a parodist and so far my accuracy is 100%. Conservative 15:49, 8 July 2014 (EDT)

I saw that Conservative deleted and salted JamesWilson's user and user talk pages. However, he neglected to block the account. I don't know whether this was an oversight or an intentional decision. GregG 20:04, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
积水之激,至于漂石者,势也。鸷鸟之疾,至于毁折者,节也。 Conservative 21:36, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
I don't understand what you are saying (even with Google translate). Following the Conservapedia:Editing article and talk pages will help in effective communication on this project. Thanks, GregG 21:41, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
  • As of 05:16, 9 July 2014, JamesWilson has blocked himself. If he can block himself, can he unblock himself? This is getting curiouser and curiouser. PeterKa 01:40, 9 July 2014 (EDT)
He decided to get a new hobby because his days of being a parodist were effectively over. Conservative 02:08, 9 July 2014 (EDT)

Tea Party Crusaders displays scammy advertisements

I was visiting the article "The country with second highest amount of abortions in the world decides to impose fines on abortions. Guess which country" on Tea Party Crusaders, linked on our front page. On the right side, there is a scammy advertisement simulating user interface elements, stating "Media content may not display properly. Download a new video content player now. Your system may not be able to play all media content and services available. Install new windows compatible software now." (For the record, my operating is Ubuntu 14.04). I have a screenshot that is available, but I cannot upload images to Conservapedia. I wonder whether Conservapedia should link to sites carrying advertisements that could significantly harm our readers. Many thanks, GregG 20:18, 8 July 2014 (EDT)

GregG, please spare us your liberal hysterics. Conservative 21:25, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
I don't see web security as a partisan issue. Another advertisement I found imitated the Facebook mobile interface with a flashing notifications icon. Clicking the advertisement leads to a survey scam (also using Facebook's trade dress). GregG 21:46, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
GregG, I am not going to wrestle in the internet mud with an unreasonable liberal. You have cried wolf too many times before concerning your various petulant complaints. Game over. Conservative 21:57, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
Thank you for your input, Conservative. I will leave the resolution of this issue to Mr. Schlafly (screenshots are also available upon request). GregG 22:15, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
Against my better judgement, I investigated your complaint using an Opera browser with no advertisement blocker or other types of blocking on the Opera browser and it was a total waste of time. Please stop wasting my time. Conservative 22:27, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
If you have an e-mail address, I can send you the screenshots I took. Note that the scammy advertisements do not appear on every page load. GregG 22:30, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
The AppNexus network delivered the advertisements I mentioned above. There are other ad networks on TPC. GregG 22:35, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
You want my email address so you can pesterfest me about nothing at will and waste more of my time whenever you desire. Gehenna will freeze over before that happens. Conservative 22:39, 8 July 2014 (EDT)
  • The main Tea Party site is the Tea Party News Network. Tea Party Crusaders is a rather obscure site to be getting so much material from. PeterKa 02:11, 9 July 2014 (EDT)
Alexa ranks the Tea Party Crusaders website about 83,000 in the United States and I like a number of the stories they choose to cover. For example, they recently ran a number of: pro-life stories, Christian stories, anti-Obama stories, a godless Britain story, anti-atheism/evolution stories, pro-gun rights stories, anti-liberal stories, etc. They also chose to run a Christian athlete story recently.
Unlike many Tea Party websites, they have a strong emphasis on the social issues. Conservative 02:42, 9 July 2014 (EDT)

Is User:CraigF2 a parodist?

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

I recently saw some edits of User:CraigF2. This one in particular makes me believe that the user is a parodist, though I would like a second opinion. Thanks, GregG 21:22, 16 July 2014 (EDT)

Your reversion was appropriate, and I don't disagree with your analysis.--Andy Schlafly 21:25, 16 July 2014 (EDT)
After reading User:CraigF2's user page recently, I said to myself this editor is probably an atheist posing as a Christian conservative. GregG's pointing out of this recent edit of his, greatly reinforces my suspicion and has cemented it in. Like JamesWilson, CraigF2's parodist career is effectively over as he has been spotted. I am emailing Karajou now. I think it is time for CraigF2 to develop a new hobby to replace his Conservapedia obsessive compulsive disorder. Conservative 23:16, 16 July 2014 (EDT)

Please unprotect my talk page

It was protected by User:Conservative without explanation. Many thanks, GregG 22:21, 19 July 2014 (EDT)

UPDATE: the page has been unprotected, but it is still troubling that an admin protected another user's user talk page without that user's request. Hopefully steps will be taken to ensure that a similar abuse of tools does not recur. GregG 22:32, 19 July 2014 (EDT)

Animation article and Brian34

You might want to lock the Animation page as it seems the socks of Brian34 et.al. are trying to create a revert war. I suggest you look into this issue. OraceHay 21:13, 20 July 2014 (EDT)

Common Core

Hi there, should a special article be written on Common Core that isn't an essay? I'm asking for approval before I start. Thank you.


(Oh, and thanks for giving me blocking rights!) Atum 17:28, 22 July 2014 (EDT)

Yes, a regular entry on Common Core would be great! Thanks in advance for starting one.--Andy Schlafly 17:36, 22 July 2014 (EDT)

Republican Politicians

Hello there. I said this in an edit summary, but should something be done about the pages for Conservative and Liberal figures? There are all of these pages that are being ridiculously elaborated upon, such as Atheism, yet for some political figures, they're just a few lines long. Anything I need to do about this, as if it's Conservapedia, it's pretty important to know about the politicians. Thank you. Atum 12:33, 26 July 2014 (EDT)

More development of the entries about political figures would be terrific!--Andy Schlafly 12:41, 26 July 2014 (EDT)
P.S. But politicians tend to be followers of culture and ideas, rather than leaders. The term "political leader" is a bit of an oxymoron.--Andy Schlafly 12:42, 26 July 2014 (EDT)
Talking of political leaders Andy, what is your opinion on Marco Rubio? He seems to be the leading candidate for the Republican 2016 election at this early stage. He has a lot going for him, his youth will appeal to younger voters and whilst no RINO, he seems more moderate than some so could pull the undecided or swing voters who would not back some other choices. He seems like a good option to me.--ColinP 15:16, 26 July 2014 (EDT)
Marco Rubio was brought from obscurity by conservatives and elected by them. But after he was elected, he made the mistake of thinking he had a brighter future with moderates and RINOs. It's doubtful he can regain the conservative support he had previously.--Andy Schlafly 21:07, 27 July 2014 (EDT)

Orwellian changes of Conservapedia's history

Conservapedia proven right shows numerous examples of predictions made by Conservapedia which became true. What happens when there is a prediction - prominently on display and repeatedly made - which doesn't become reality?

In 2012/2013, we read on the main page of Conservapedia news-items like the following:


50 page Question Evolution! booklet. Question Evolution! Campaign runaway train is going to be released

Feb 15, 2012


A Question evolution! campaign group now has 3 writers and at least 3 Question Evolution! booklets/books will be coming out. Some of the booklets/books will be designed for young people.

May 1, 2012


A 15 questions for evolutionists booklet and book for middle school students will soon be coming out and they are going to be heavily promoted and distributed.

Jun 19,2012


SS Evolution! passengers get on your life jackets! A barrage of 100+ page Question evolution! campaign booklet torpedoes is headed your way!

Sep 19, 2012


The Question evolution! book for middle school students, edited by a Christian apologist, gains in popularity.

Jul 11, 2013


Canadian teacher at a Christian school will be serving as a science editor of the Question evolution! campaign book for middle school students.

Jul 18, 2013

And many more...

Two and a half years later, this book hasn't been published. This is a prediction boldly made by Conservapedia on its main page (without any qualifiers) which just was wrong. But instead of owning up to it, gritting your teeth and admitting that such things happen, another way was chosen: I had to link to the news-items using the internet archive, as every mentioning of this book was erased from the history of the main page and even from discussions on the archives of the main talk page! Though the "book for the middle school" was announced (according to my memory at least) on many talk-pages, User talk pages and even articles, now, you just find deleted revisions.

This reminds me of the erasure of Leon Trotsky from all documents and even photographs in the Soviet Union! But alas, such an attempt to change history will always be incomplete, and thereby counterproductive: How do you reply to someone who says "Obviously they are right at Conservapedia proven right, but that is not surprising, as they erase all the cases when they are wrong."

I'm aware that you, Andy, probably won't react to this problem - and I'm afraid that this is something your sysops count on. As User:Conservative said in another deleted revision to User:GregG:


GregG, if you have any concerns or complaints about this matter, I/we would recommend that you take them to the owner of the website godspeed. I/we predict that you will get the "Schlafly ignore" - AGAIN!

Conservative 14:14, 20 July 2014 (EDT)

AugustO, evolutionists claim that truly astounding things can happen given enough time. Why do you doubt the cited news stories you indicated were on the main page? It has only been 2 1/2 years according to you. Conservative 19:51, 27 July 2014 (EDT)

Sorry, missed my signature - I - User:AugstO wrote the text above. --AugustO 19:55, 27 July 2014 (EDT)

Sissel upheld by D.C. Cir.

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

I wonder how the D.C. Circuit's recent upholding of the dismissal in Sissel v. HHS is going to affect Hotze. Also, I found a website hosting the briefs in Hotze online, so I was wondering how to go about writing a comprehensive Conservapedia article on the case (as well as, if copyright law permits, hosting the full text of the briefs on Conservapedia). Thanks, GregG 21:49, 29 July 2014 (EDT)

Great comment, Greg. The Sissel decision ruled on the Origination Clause, but did not address all of the arguments on that Clause that have been presented in the Hotze case. Maybe I can write and post an analysis.
As to briefs, I'm not sure what (if any) copyright issues exist. Presumably as long as you give credit, the doctrine of fair use would apply.--Andy Schlafly 22:14, 29 July 2014 (EDT)
