OWS

I've been watching you add religious people to the sympathizer. I reverted your edits regarding the pope. He did not mention Occupy Wall Street, he mentioned banking reforms and world government that moves away from liberal financial greed. I will research the Archbishop of Canterbury addition next. --Jpatt 10:22, 2 November 2011 (EDT)

I didn't add the Archbishop as you can see in the edit history. He was added by someone else. I just changed it so that it added the internal link as per what I said in my edit description as the person who added it did not. I did no research as to whether or not he supports it but figured I'd fix the formatting. As to the Papal addition, the piece he put out has been widely, from what I've read, been interpreted as sharing the views of OWS if not an endorsement. I haven't read much of the actual piece but it is not exactly a glowing review of American Capitalism. If you don't agree with the addition that's fine, I just thought I'd try and contribute more to that article than just grammar flow and formatting. Thanks for the explanation since I probably would have wondered why. Ayzmo :) 17:55, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
The addition of Rowan was done by user ScottDG, fyi. And Rowan has, according to the Telegraph article, endorsed the UK branch of OWS currently camped out outside St. Paul's. Unless the quote is false or miss-attributed(same thing really) there is no reason he shouldn't be on the list. Again, like the Pope, I really don't care if he is or not. OWS is not exactly an interest of mine. Ayzmo :) 18:02, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
Sorry for the mix up in attribution. Rowan did not endorse the Occupy protests, it was recognition. A decision was made not to evict the protesters, which had been the plan. Calling for banking reform might be interpreted as aligning behind the movement as he blames capitalism like the protesters do. The Telegraph headline is a bit misleading "The Archbishop of Canterbury has thrown his weight behind the St Paul’s Cathedral anti-capitalist protesters." As for the Pope, he was not calling for socialism and he was not blaming capitalism. He was blaming greed by way of liberal financial practices. Hardly an endorsement but too tempting for agenda driven WaPo not to hype. Keep up the good work and do tell what Ayzmo stands for. --Jpatt 18:54, 2 November 2011 (EDT)
It isn't a problem. Quick looks at edit logs don't tell much. And that works for me. Again, not my area of interest. I do like to clean up things that bother me though so I wander in now and then because I'm nosy and watch every page I edit.
My username is one I've used for what must be going on 10 years or so now. I first used it as a screen name on AIM. It is a typo actually. I was typing a Hebrew word(can't recall the word for the life of me anymore) and in my haste I made a typo and hit enter too quickly. Since then it is a username I have used over and over though I'll admit I have come across others who've used it shockingly enough. It is also my username on Wikipedia.

Manual of Style

We do not refer to a gay man's sex partner as a husband. [1] Conservapedia does not recognize so-called "gay marriage" or the "marriage equality" initiative. If a woman "married" her parakeet, we might write about her crazy deed, but we wouldn't call the parakeet her "spouse".

Don't try to win wars here. Just describe reality in a trustworthy way. --Ed Poor Talk 14:13, 4 March 2012 (EST)

Wasn't fighting a war and did nothing untrustworthy. I do not appreciate either accusation. The reality is that he is legally married under the law and so that is what he is. I guess "partner" would be the alternative. I'm more than ok with that. I can't say I'm thrilled with some of the changes made. Most notably the actual name is the "It Gets Better Project." That should be the title of the article. Your opinion on whether it is a project or not does not override the reality of its name. And the lead has lost its encyclopedic intro which was the main point of my rewrite and instead reads like an about section. Ayzmo :) 15:19, 4 March 2012 (EST)
"Ayzmo", the article will not be rewritten to fit your liberal, pro-gay perspective. These changes reflect the POV and manual of style of Conservapedia. Please respect that. If you cannot, there are many, many other articles to work on. The dog article, perhaps?--James Wilson 15:23, 4 March 2012 (EST)
I tried to write the article from a neutral perspective as much as possible. As such I tried not to touch the criticisms that were there. The Title of the project is not a matter of contention anywhere as far as I'm concerned. And I'm not sure you'll want to now fix the spelling mistakes and broken sentences you have just reverted to. I'm sorry I improved an article which was by any standards pretty uninformative. I will however ask Andy about the Title since we should be getting that correct if nothing else. Ayzmo :) 15:28, 4 March 2012 (EST)
A senior Administrator decided it's not as much of a project as it is a slogan. If you feel the need to talk to Mr. Schlafly about the title, go ahead. And a "neutral" perspective, as defined by liberal Wikipedia especially, results in even more liberal bias, so just write from a true and trustworthy perspective.--James Wilson 15:43, 4 March 2012 (EST)
Just because you call something true doesn't mean it is true; you will have to back up your claim, or the claim you are defending, with reliable sources. Remember, this is an encyclopedia, not a blog. If you cannot provide reliable sources, please don't bother serious contributors. There are many, many other articles to work on. The rat article, perhaps? Baobab 16:57, 4 March 2012 (EST)
"Baobab", you have contributed little of substance. This is an issue of Administrator versus ordinary user. Admin trumps user. Simple enough. I was obviously not the one to make the change, but I personally don't see the big deal between "It Gets Better" and "It Gets Better project". And this is an encyclopedia. But a conservative one, unlike the pseudo-neutral Wikipedia. Therefore it will take a conservative perspective.--James Wilson 17:17, 4 March 2012 (EST)
Admin trumps user and facts trump Conservapedia. I do like your style though James. Very Schlafly-esque. Tyoung 18:11, 4 March 2012 (EST)

As glad as I am that this issue riles you all up I would ask that you please take it somewhere other than my talk page. Also, do not revert comments on my talk page. Thank you. Ayzmo :) 18:21, 4 March 2012 (EST)
