Let me not to the marriage of true minds
Admit impediments, love is not love
Which alters when it alteration finds,
Or bends with the remover to remove.
O no, it is an ever-fixed mark
That looks on tempests and is never shaken;
It is the star to every wand'ring bark,
Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.
Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks
Within his bending sickle's compass come,
Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks,
But bears it out even to the edge of doom:
If this be error and upon me proved,
I never writ, nor no man ever loved.
-Shakespeare Sonnets 116

You're welcome. I don't know who Bugler is but I disagree with a lot of his blocks. I have him on my monitor list. ;-) ~BCSTalk2ME 16:55, 9 September 2008 (EDT)
- A monitor list? How thrillingly Orwellian of you! Do share! Bugler 03:45, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
- Look buddy, I don't know who you are, but you certainly don't have the group spirit of past sysops. oh yeah...I have a lot of people on my monitor list fyi...probably amounts to 50...don't take it personally. ~BCSTalk2ME 08:37, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
- Am I on your list? (Just curious!) Philip J. Rayment 11:35, 10 September 2008 (EDT)
i am obnoxious, and therefore have made a new topic jsut to inform you that i have actually come on conservapedia for the first time in...months...yeah. --KTB 21:44, 11 September 2008 (EDT)
Haha, thanks. Even though I don't have much time to edit the actual site I'm usually working on something on the technical side of things. CPWebmaster 13:06, 15 October 2008 (EDT)
Behind the scenes?? ;-P It's so much fun to mess around with HTML!! I use notepad and unpublished web page. *yay* I'm really only on for homework!! ;-)~BethTalk2ME
Thanks for the compliment. I would have replied last night, but editing was disabled. I am usually at college during the day, and often in the evenings I have to do homework. Oh, well. Samd 17:55, 30 October 2008 (EDT)
Ur welcome! ~BethTalk2ME 18:07, 30 October 2008 (EDT)
Your disagreement with Andy's different tests
Bethany, I want to respond to some of your comments on Andy's talk page.
First, although it's been interesting to learn a bit about Andy's classes, as others have also said, I don't think Conservapedia is the place to have that discussion with him. And it's not really the place for me to have this discussion with you, but as you don't have an e-mail address activated in Conservapedia, I have no other obvious way to pass on these thoughts.
Your point about being paying customers is weak (not totally wrong, but weak). The two things that I believe undermine it are that (a) according to what Andy has quoted, the different tests were known about before enrolment. That doesn't mean that you can't object, but it does mean that you don't have as strong a case as you would otherwise. And (b) if anybody is to have a say as a paying customer, it would be those who are paying, which I presume is your parents, not you.
A classroom is not, or at least should not be, a democracy (although I realise it wasn't you who raised that point), but that doesn't mean that students can't suggest and argue for changes. But despite what many teenagers like to think about themselves, they are not (typically) as mature and wise and knowledgeable as people who are older and who have more experience. A good idea with these types of issues is to (privately) discuss the matter beforehand with someone (or several people) whose opinion you respect. This has the potential to (a) avoid you making a fool of yourself (I'm not suggesting that you have in this case) and (b) providing you with a better argument or approach. In this case discussing it with your parents and getting them onside first would have been good. (I realise that I'm being presumptuous here; perhaps you've already done some of these things I'm suggesting.) Of course it doesn't need to be limited to parents. Your minister, church youth leader, or any other person whose opinion you respect and think would be valuable are candidates.

Thanks for your comments, Philip. When I mentioned we were paying, it wasn't to be taken as one of my main points. (I see now that every little bit of my comments were analyzed: I didn't even expect to be taken seriously.) Also, not to snub my nose, but, I am paying for the class. I have discussed with authorities and other friends. I just disagree with Mr. Schlafly, but a lot of the time I came across as rude and disrespectful. I do see your point about private conversation. I've made a big mess, which I am now having to clean up. ;-P Thanks again! ~BethTalk2ME 16:51, 4 November 2008 (EST)
- Well, as I said, I was being a bit presumptuous about what you might and might not have done. Thanks for setting me straight. As for being rude and disrespectful, none of us are perfect, and I'm not saying that you couldn't have done anything better, but apart perhaps from the point of not having the conversation in a more private venue, there was nothing especially rude and disrespectful in how you said it, in my opinion.

Thanks for the good advice!
Thanks for the good advice on my talk page!--Aschlafly 13:41, 17 November 2008 (EST)

Studying's going great. Why not help you anyway? The way I study is first I memorize the terms (at least the most important ones) in the spreadsheet until I can recite them well, and then I read the lectures from that time to give a good backdrop to it and remind me of the order and context of events. I am reading the lectures now and I've been memorizing the spreadsheets for about a week. Reading the lectures is definitely very helpful. If nothing else you should do that. But really, there isn't that much else you can do, I don't think. Anyway, good luck!! AddisonDM 8 January 2009
Thanks!! I've been doing that and it's actually been working!!! I'm so bad at the 19th century... ~BethTalk2ME 09:28, 14 January 2009 (EST)
Hey! Glad I could help you out. I had trouble with the same question you said, utopian communities! AddisonDM 19:15, 15 January 2009 (EST)
What did you end up putting? I put c and than changed to a...I probably shouldn't have, but...~BethTalk2ME 10:38, 16 January 2009 (EST)
ARGGGG...and looking it up now, it was (d). I hope you got it right!!...I didn't.~BethTalk2ME 11:16, 16 January 2009 (EST)
- It was 1840's right? That's what I put. I guess that was D. I hope you did well. AddisonDM 22:57, 17 January 2009 (EST)
Yea...we'll see...yes, it was the 1840s...good job!!! ~BethTalk2ME 09:39, 19 January 2009 (EST)
Hey Bethany, I want to include you in my new Conservapedia article under "Influential Editors." I want to know what your major contributions have been. Thanks! AddisonDM 19:40, 7 February 2009 (EST)
Wow!! Thanks!! I'll try to gather them up... ;-P ~BethTalk2ME 09:15, 10 February 2009 (EST)
- Thanks! I'll summarize the best and include it in the article. AddisonDM 17:38, 12 February 2009 (EST)
Hey Bethany, can you read this essay I wrote here: The Coming Fifth Great Awakening in America. What do you think? AddisonDM 14:38, 31 March 2009 (EDT)
Hey Addison!! I really like it!! It's very good and very persuading! I hadn't even thought of anything of the sort! Great Job!! I don't have any major comments, but I might make a couple grammar corrections.. lol!! Anyway, Good job! Bethy
