Hey, Rob.

Where can I find the inactive template? --Yeschayoise the editor (talk) 20:40, 4 March 2021 (EST)

Copy paste it from here. [2] Incidentally, I reviewed both your stub about the Welsh guy and the WP article, and didn't see any "copying" from Wikipedia. RobSFree Kyle!
Unless of course you call reporting historical facts "copying". RobSFree Kyle! 21:03, 4 March 2021 (EST)

Another question.

Have you ever heard of everipedia? --Builder (talk) 21:11, 4 March 2021 (EST)

Sounds vaguely familiar. What is it? RobSFree Kyle! 21:13, 4 March 2021 (EST)
It’s similar to Wikipedia. It basically ported Wikipedia’s articles over. --Builder (talk) 21:14, 4 March 2021 (EST)
Sounds interesting They're ranked 26,000 globally and 8,000 domestically. [3] They eventually are concerned about their rank, competitiveness, and readership. RobSFree Kyle! 21:31, 4 March 2021 (EST)
Does this article look bad for a start?
No. It doesn't look anymore copied from Wikipedia any more than Conservapedia copied the idea of a source of knowledge from Wikipedia. RobSFree Kyle! 22:02, 4 March 2021 (EST)
So much for quitting eh Rob?--Mercian12 (talk) 19:44, 12 March 2021 (EST)
I'm looking for a few doggie biscuits. RobSFree Kyle! 19:47, 12 March 2021 (EST)

Greetings RobS, how are you doing?

Hello, Rob. I'm back. Hope you've been well. Thanks for all your efforts and hard work in making Conservapedia the great place that it is. I wonder if you've seen the recent Gordon Cromwell Report on the Status of Global Christianity 2021? I'm praying and working for Global Christianity to reach 3 Billion Souls - wow, how pleasing that would be to the Lord Jesus - by 2030. Please work with me and may all Christians unite for Christendom's sake!

In Our Lord Jesus, Nishant X. God Bless.

Thank you. Good to see you. Hope you've been well. Did you know that 20% of all CP traffic right now is coming from India? Your timing of a comeback couldn't have been better. RobSFree Kyle! 23:57, 21 March 2021 (EDT)
Welcome back NishantXavier! —LTMay D.C., his mother, and I.S. be all well! Monday, 00:06, 22 March 2021 (EDT)

Great to know, Rob! India is going to rise to internet prominence in the next decade, with an estimated 1 billion internet users by 2025! Thanks for all your great efforts in promoting Conservapedia! Together, we can reach the world, your country, the great USA, my country, my beloved India, for the Gospel, and the Conservative Cause!

I pray Our Lord Jesus will richly bless you and reward you for your good efforts in contributing to the Cause, in this life and the next. God Bless.

Edit: Thanks, LT. You're the reason I returned. Thanks for emailing me to remind me. Thanks for all your great work in promoting Conservapedia too!NishantXavierFor Christ the King 00:09, 22 March 2021 (EDT)

Hi Rob. Please see if you can contribute to this article: NishantXavierFor Christ the King 04:35, 26 March 2021 (EDT)

My update to the civility guideliness

Andy approved my addition to the civility portion of the Conservapedia guidelines.Conservative (talk) 11:33, 29 March 2021 (EDT)

This is the update I created: "For content disputes, be reasonable and make every effort to use an article's talk page to have a cordial and constructive dialogue. Stick to the facts in content disputes and back up your facts with a source or sources. If you are proposing alternative content in a content dispute, it must be sourced. Do not engage in personal attacks. Avoid bringing up irrelevant past disputes with editors and stick to the content dispute at hand. If you have a content dispute with another editor, do not immediately post to the other editor's personal talk page. The article talk pages is where the vast majority of discussion should take place. Avoid unnecessary content disputes by sourcing your article content."Conservative (talk) 11:34, 29 March 2021 (EDT)

RobS and Northwest content disputes involving historical matters

I see a lot of disputes between RobS and NorthWest involving historical disputes. Below I give some great rules of weighing historical evidence.

Recommendations related to historical claims made by this article and information related to historiography

"Fischer, David Hackett, Historians’ Fallacies: Toward a Logic of Historical Thought (New York: Harper Collins, 1970). In only approximately 300 pages, Fischer surveys an immense amount of background historical literature to point out a comprehensive variety of analytical errors that many, if not most, historians commit. Fischer points out specific examples of faulty or sloppy reasoning in the work of even the most prominent historians, making it a useful book for beginning students of history. While this book presumably did not make Fischer popular with many of his peers, it should be noted that his contributions as a historian have not been limited simply to criticizing the work of others; since 1976, he has published a number of well-received books on other historical topics."[4]

Fischer's 7 habits of sound historiography

Fischer's 7 rules for historians taken from Josh McDowell's book The New Evidence that Demands a Verdict:

(1) The burden of proof for a historical claim is always upon the one making the assertion.

(2) Historical evidence must be an answer to the question asked and not to any other question.

(3) "An historian must not merely provide good evidence, but the best evidence. And the best evidence, all other things being equal, is the evidence which is most nearly immediate to the event itself."

(4) Evidence must always be affirmative. Negative evidence is no evidence at all. In other words, Fischer is saying that an absence of evidence is not necessarily evidence of absence.

(5) The meaning of any historical evidence is dependent upon the context from which it is obtained from.

(6) "An empirical statement must not be more precise than its evidence warrants."

(7) "All inferences from historical evidence are probabilistic."

Josh McDowell's Evidence that Demands a Verdict, page 674, 1999, Mark MCGarry, Texas Type and Book Works, Dallas, TX, ISBN 0-7852-4219-8)

Fischer's 6 principles of question framing for historical investigations

Black Lives Matter / Stacey Abrams / Noah Green

What was the idea of undoing my edits in the Black Lives Matter article, which I intended to clean up part of the article (including replacing liberal-preferred terms with more appropriate ones) and add info? Also regarding the edit you pointed out in the Stacey Abrams article, I didn't miss it because it was accurate and sourced and it didn't need to be dealt with. In the Noah Green article, I also replaced the New York Times and Mediaite links with one from TGP because per CP's guidelines, liberal news sources (such as the NYT and Mediaite) are not trustworthy due to their partisan bias and penchant for blatantly lying to suit the liberal narrative. Are you just trying to stir up trouble again because I'm actually trying to get articles cleaned up? Northwest (talk) 03:10, 3 April 2021 (EDT)

I just reviewed the CP Guidelines page you linked to, and nowhere on that page does the phrase "liberal news sources" appear, let alone your specific parenthetical inclusions. Nice try. RobSFree Kyle! 19:34, 4 April 2021 (EDT)

Re: Your recent post on my talk page

In case you didn't get the memo, Islam is not a "race", and making such a false accusation (as well as falsely accusing me of "trolling") is not only a case of you doing the trolling yourself (and trying to start yet another fight), but by making it about race when it has nothing to do with such (which only liberals do), you're displaying racism yourself. Tread lightly. Northwest (talk) 10:04, 4 April 2021 (EDT)

Full disclosure: here is the text of an email I just sent to Andy.
"I have just cause to be angry about User: Northwest's racist trolling. RobSmith edits under his real life identity. In an effort to find neutral language for the birther movement, I am the Admin who reverted Northwest's racist trolling and put in "said to be born in Honolulu" (as cited by Eugene Robinson of WaPo). I cleaned up Northwest's racist trolling in at least a half dozen articles with neutral compromise language. For those efforts, there now is a webpage on the internet calling me a racist and birther, for which I am neither. And Northwest does not edit under his true life identity.

Andy can't be involved in all aspects of CP day-to-day, but had I blocked Northwest for 5 years in 2017 for what on its face looks like subversive racist trolling, Conservapedia would still be in the 30,000 today rather than fighting to remain in top 90,000.

By Andy's actions, trusting and rewarding racists trolls while disciplining good-faith users who risked their own names and reputations, not to mention dedicating their valuable time and lives to the project, makes the notion of CP being a meritocracy a joke. Andy needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

I suggest you stop stalking pages I create edit or create, stop harassing other users, and stop making threats and allow Andy to complete his full review. RobSFree Kyle! 10:32, 4 April 2021 (EDT)

So basically, you lied to Andy and you're lying now on your own talk page (while still trying to make trouble, make false accusations, start fights, play the "victim" and project your own racism and trolling while making your imagined issue about race, even though it actually has nothing to do with race). All you're doing is still making yourself look bad in the process. Northwest (talk) 11:40, 4 April 2021 (EDT)
Why is it you sound more like a program than a thinking human being? Why are all responses programmed ("only liberals call people racists, therefore you are a liberal", "the NYT is liberal, therefore bad, wrong, and evil", etc). If you are not a sockpuppet of Karajou, you likely advanced your CP career by parroting him. Only Karajou is capable of human reason, emotion, and discussion. You are not. You sound like program whose only purpose is to harm the project and sow division. Conservapedia has suffered the likes of your kind in the past. It's nothing new. And don't threaten me.
