Excellent edits, John! Very impressive indeed.--Aschlafly 01:04, 5 March 2007 (EST)
Tremendous edits, John. Spectacular.--Aschlafly 21:26, 5 March 2007 (EST)
Welcome to the SYSOP group! We need your help in blocking vandals when we reopen registration. Block a new user immediately for obscenity or anything else obviously inappropriate.--Aschlafly 13:46, 6 March 2007 (EST)
I saw that you commented that the Atheism article needs improvement. I posted a new version which lasted about 2 minutes. You may wish to take a look. It was not comprehensive but I thought it was a start. I would be interested in your views. --Horace 22:16, 7 March 2007 (EST)
- I see that BenjaminS has now included some of my material in the article. Needs tidying up though. --Horace 22:17, 7 March 2007 (EST)
John, did you delete all those facts about Taiwan? Please explain if you did. Those facts seemed informative to me. I see that someone else has restored them, rightly so.--Aschlafly 00:08, 8 March 2007 (EST)
John, while I'm sure you have the best interests of America at heart I simply don't see why you are working against our cause by removing facts in a decidedly liberal manner. McCarthy was alleged to have been an alcoholic, but obviously a true American hero would have no such vices. Likewise, it would be absurd to deny the very real Communist threat! If this zealous overturning of my patriotism must continue, could you please explain why it is taking place? ATB 23:00, 9 March 2007 (EST)
The fact is that John Kerry did not win the election, among other reasons because he couldn't make up his mind even about his own socialist agenda. I confess that I'm not entirely sure what you're doing on site if you're not interested in the Conservative viewpoint. If you want neutrality, shouldn't you be on Wikipedia? ATB 01:09, 10 March 2007 (EST)
I admire your idealism. However, remember that children are reading this resource. Sometimes we need to be discrete with our presentation of the facts - I'm sure that you wouldn't edit the homosexuality article to include the research suggesting that such behavior is "normal." It's simply a sad fact that in these dangerous times we need to be clever with the facts we have in order to protect our way of life. ATB 15:27, 10 March 2007 (EST)
I noticed your reverting of my contributions of the Obama page. While the Wikipedia excerpt was unnecessary, my contributions were decidingly fair. The motive was "to provide an increased understanding of a presidential candidate so as to ensure an inform electorate" as I said. Reverting that part only hurt the American political system. Why then did the edit occur? Was it for the lack of citations because they were to be added as soon as the proper sources were ascertained and i was able to figure out the function process.--Fpresjh 21:34, 14 March 2007 (EDT)
I am going to notify this user that after they are reinstated, that they are on parole for six months. What do you think an adequate consequence of breaking parole should be? Geo. 23:30, 9 March 2007 (EST)
- Undelia will serve all 4 months. Parole is my term for a period of monitoring to make sure an offender learns. I am going to code a template for parolees. Geo. 23:36, 9 March 2007 (EST)

Why did you remove the information from Gravity? It was factual, or at least the part about quantum mechanics was.
Nah, i was just being a dick.
Why did you remove factual information from the george bush article? --TimSvendsen 23:40, 7 March 2007 (EST)
Its called Intelligent falling.
Why do you think that Conservapedia does not need to label disputed articles as such? Wikipedia has a policy of marking any questionable reference or topic as "disputed" specifically to avoid misinformation - Conservapedia could thrive on a similar system. Also, why does it seem like everything on Conservapedia, while not necessarily false, is completely lacking citation? --Kenter 23:31, 12 March 2007 (EST)
Stop posting from Wikipedia!
It's against the rules to copy articles from Wikipedia. An admin will ban you if you keep doing so.--CWilson 20:55, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Is that the wrong term?
I wasn't sure--is Mulatto no longer used? How does Obama classify himself? There is clearly talk about the significance of his racial achievement, but he is not "African American" in the eyes of many.--CWilson 21:00, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
- It's gossipy, and irrelevant. We prohibit gossip. If there is a well-based political observation about support for Obama within the African American community, that would be relevant and not gossipy. Thanks.--Aschlafly 21:54, 13 March 2007 (EDT)
Reverse the blocking then. There is so much parody vandalism going on I banned him

Aschlafly asked me to do the research. what are your objections to it?
see title. Conservative 21:58, 15 March 2007 (EDT)conservative
I didn't cut it. it was just temporarily in my computer.

Why are you messing with my edits. You have no discussion in the talk page. Again, Aschafly asked me to do this.

Please don't get in a tit for tat edit war. You have not said why you removed my material about disease and "lesbians"

Secondly, we have expert testimony saying animal male on male acts is not necessarily sexual. It could be merely aggression for example. I am merely saying both sides are asserting. I think that is fair. Both sides don't have facts at this point because we can't read animals minds.
Please let us not have these discussions here. That is what the talk pages are for. Conservative 22:28, 15 March 2007 (EDT)conservative
let us talk at the talk page it is easier. Ok? Also, other sysops can mediate this way and have a group discussion
Conservative 22:35, 15 March 2007 (EDT)conservative
I sent you a note in the discussion page so other Sysops can get involved in the discussion.

What is wrong with refering to the people of Africa as "people?" The term tribes, besides having connotations of a less-developed social nature, does not do justice to the myriad different social and political organsations that existed in pre-colonial Africa.
John, thanks for your quick work on "African American homosexual." In my opinion there is no such thing as "minor vandalism." A 2-hour block can really haunt us when it expires and no one's watching. Did you look at that website he inserted? I wonder if it is obscene or virus-inducing. Regardless, this looks bad. I'll watch your page here and unless you disagree, I'm changing this to an infinite block. Thanks again.--Aschlafly 22:23, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
- I didn't look but I assumed it was an organization name. --John 22:48, 16 March 2007 (EDT)
Need for longer blocks
Thanks much for blocking user Grinder for vandalism, but he came back after your short block expired and then vandalized more entries. My approach is to do an infinite block for vandalism. Unfortunately, vandalism reflects a destructive attitude that almost never reforms in this context.--Aschlafly 20:32, 19 March 2007 (EDT)
Hello, You recently expressed your opinion at CP:AID. After voting, it has become obvious that the first article to improve is Germany and any related articles. Details will be posted soon at CP:AID, check there tomorrow for details. Thanks! --Hojimachongtalk 15:37, 21 March 2007 (EDT)
As my good deed of the day I am requesting that you place this template on your userpage. Participating sysops will earn my respect and gratitude. --BenjaminS 00:02, 13 April 2007 (EDT)
Silly "fact" demands for citation
John, how about inserting citations rather than inserting demands for citations? Thanks and Godspeed to you.--Aschlafly 23:13, 6 August 2007 (EDT)
- I'm inserting citation demands where people make statements claiming facts without backing them up. Usually this is because I disagree with the conclusions/methodology of the article and am subtly hinting to the person with creative control that they need to be more careful. Going in and changing things tends to provoke some very unfavorable reactions.--John 21:38, 7 August 2007 (EDT)
