Anarchocapitalism

Why did you delete the article? It's a legitimate entry. It is an economic belief that is fairly widespread within Libertarian circles. MountainDew 02:51, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

Your reversal of the re-direction was very correct, btw. I took out some of the bias/inaccuracy, and left it as a stub. MountainDew 02:56, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

You didn't. The user in question definitely went too far. MountainDew 03:07, 20 March 2007 (EDT)

MossyKate

I really enjoyed the reason you gave for blocking "MossyKate". That made me laugh out loud! Great block.--Aschlafly 23:25, 23 March 2007 (EDT)

BillOReillyFan

See this edit that BillOReillyFan made (anonymously, of course) to Wikipedia. I think that's incriminating enough for something. Maybe Andy can even get worked up over legal procedures. That'll be fun to watch. --Hojimachongtalk 02:58, 24 March 2007 (EDT)

Stub2 Deleted

The webmaster deleted the stub2 template and now we have a ton of pages siting around with a broken template. I have been fixing them, but I'm tired and need sleep, could you help when you log on. All the pages with broken links can be found here: http://www.conservapedia.com/index.php?title=Special:Whatlinkshere&target=Template:Stub2

(Issue has been fixed via Template Redirect.) --Sid 3050 08:37, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

Please shorten User:Tmtoulouse's block time and explain the reasons

I ask you to reduce User:Tmtoulouse's block time to a week or less, and to provide an explanation for the block on his Talk page, including links to diffs illustrating the issues mention ("Trolling, Abuse of power, Conspiracy to commit vandalism").

Despite his "Parthian shot" at Aschlafly, a six month time period is grotesquely excessive. This is not Willy on Wheels we're talking about. And this is someone with genuine expertise in biology and psychology.

Second, whenever you block a user you should always leave an explanation on his Talk page. When the charges are serious and the block is lengthy, this is especially important.

P. S. Tenacious point-of-view warring is bad behavior, but it is not "vandalism." Point-of-view warring is continually inserting a personal point-of-view into an article after it has been shown that there is a clear community consensus against it. That's not vandalism. Vandalism is inserting vulgarities, crude remarks attacking Conservapedia, deliberately changing accurate facts to inaccurate ones, inserting parodies that caricature conservative points of view, moving articles to inappropriate new names, etc. I don't think Tmtoulouse has done that or encouraged anyone else to do that. Dpbsmith 14:42, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

Also his only "vandalism" was on talk pages. Surely that's insufficient. He didn't even post to Andy's page after Andy told him not to. Surely that indicates no mens rea to commit vandalism. And, the reason - "conspiracy to commit vandalism, abuse of powers" - seriously? That sounds like a reason to block Conservative, not a guy who was a sysop for all of two hours. -AmesG 10:53, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

Re block times: in this newspaper article about Wikipedia, an admin who reverts large quantities of vandalism says "The standard way to stop a vandal is to 'revert' their changes and leave a warning on their personal user page. Most then lose interest, but if they persist Knott will block them for a limited period, say 31 hours, or longer if they are a repeat offender. 'We tend to keep blocks short and sweet, and that seems to work.'" Dpbsmith 11:15, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

{{sarcasm}}Whoa there Smith! Careful with citing Wikipedia! This is Conservapedia, you know, not one of those liberal pieces of trash that actually discusses science!!!-AmesG 11:21, 25 March 2007 (EDT)
Exactly! Here at Conservapedia, we do things right! (Freakily enough, I made that list before getting here.) --Sid 3050 11:32, 25 March 2007 (EDT)
  • Please contact me. Info is on my page. --~ TerryK MyTalk 19:31, 25 March 2007 (EDT)

Belated thanks for reinstating Tmtoulouse. Dpbsmith 06:02, 30 March 2007 (EDT)

Revert war over maintenance

(sigh) Requesting sysop assistance because TK is creating a double redirect:

I have attempted to fix this double redirect two times, and both got reverted by TK. I assume he sees my routine repair as an attack on his User Talk page, so I need sysop authority to get the permission to fix things. The page is now also protected in its broken state, so I definitely need a sysop now.

So: I officially request the opinion of sysops User:Aschlafly, User:TK, User:Conservative, User:CPAdmin1, User:CPWebmaster, User:Ed Poor, User:David_R, User:AustinM, User:Geo.plrd, and User:Tsumetai to get a poll of roughly 33% of all sysops for this undoubtedly critical change to a User page.

All replies should be left at User_talk:Sid_3050#Double_Redirect_Poll for easier evaluation of the results. --Sid 3050 09:51, 31 March 2007 (EDT) |}

User:Tomt

  • why did you block him?
  • I didn't see vandalism.
  • Please post a diff on my talk page. --CPAdmin1 22:03, 6 April 2007 (EDT)


Actually you got it wrong. if you look at the edit, he was not the one who did it. he was the one who fixed it.

Sock Ring

Hey, uh, your war on "sock rings" is actually a war on people using proxies. I recognize 75.126.138.74 is a proxy IP. People use proxies for a lot of reasons. Some corporate servers and especially things like AOL route things through proxies automatically. You're not banning socks. You're likely banning completely different people. I have software that automatically gives me an IP proxy because sites can take your IP and use it for unscrupulous purposes. Just to let you know before you ban half the internet. YankeeFan

P.S. If you want to know anything about proxies I might be able to help you.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you, George!

The eleven disciples went to the hill in Galilee where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him, Jesus drew near and said to them, "I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age." Matthew 28
Then Peter began to speak: “I now realize how true it is that God does not show favoritism but accepts men from every nation who fear him and do what is right. You know the message God sent to the people of Israel, telling the good news of peace through Jesus Christ, who is Lord of all. You know what has happened throughout Judea, beginning in Galilee after the baptism that John preached— how God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and how he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him. “We are witnesses of everything he did in the country of the Jews and in Jerusalem. They killed him by hanging him on a tree, but God raised him from the dead on the third day and caused him to be seen. He was not seen by all the people, but by witnesses whom God had already chosen—by us who ate and drank with him after he rose from the dead. He commanded us to preach to the people and to testify that he is the one whom God appointed as judge of the living and the dead. All the prophets testify about him that everyone who believes in him receives forgiveness of sins through his name.” —Acts 10:34-43 NIV

Was this discussed somewhere? --~ TK MyTalk 01:21, 10 April 2007 (EDT)
