I object to this. An article on which I had put in a great deal of work was deleted without any discussion whatsoever. --SeanTheSheep 17:18, 10 May 2007 (EDT)


Proof? DanH 20:56, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

He has a user box that says AmesG is the leader of conservapedia. And I have been seeing a lot of vandalism on this site that has been saying icewedge thinks AmesG should be unbanned. --AdrianP 20:57, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

That's not proof. DanH 20:58, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

It is easier to block and unblock later than to fix the pages that a person has vandalized. --AdrianP 21:00, 8 May 2007 (EDT)
AmesG does a better job of getting himself blocked than any Admin here. He likes the attention, but I agree with DanH, that box isn't much "proof" and check it, several others do, or did, have that same box. --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 21:36, 8 May 2007 (EDT)

  • Muschifresser (talk contribs block count), user name needs explanation. No apparent justification for blocking, but "Fresser" means "to eat like an animal," and "Muschi" is, uh, blocked by Google's Safe Search filtering.

  • Hacker (talk contribs count) Review of Hacker's edits: slightly less than 500 edits, of which only about 6 are new entries and only about 10 are substantive edits of existing entries. One of the new entries was "Geek". Unless this improves quickly, I propose blocking this account because this violates the 90/10 rule.--Aschlafly 18:50, 23 April 2007 (EDT)
That seems disingenuous. Yes, he has only a few new pages, but he has made a number of templates. And, maybe I read the "total" incorrectly, but it said 307 edits? At the risk of sounding tautological, this user is quite useful, IMHO. Flippin 10:52, 24 April 2007 (EDT)

  • User:Auld Nick. In this edit, he added Image:Soldiers wearing Kilts.jpg, with the edit comment "Image of soldiers in kilts" and the picture caption "Kilted Scottish Soldiers paying respect to their fallen comrades." He does not say in the talk page or in an edit comment why he chose an image in which one soldier's kilt has been lifted by wind to expose part of his bare buttocks. The use of such an image ought to have been discussed in Talk. If the point was to illustrate that kilts are worn without underwear, and if he sincerely thought such an image was appropriate, then the edit comment should have said something like "Image showing that kilts are worn without underwear." Therefore, I consider the edit comment misleading, and that trips my threshold for labeling it as "abuse." Put plainly, it's my opinion that Auld Nick is figuratively mooning Conservapedia. Dpbsmith 09:57, 10 May 2007 (EDT) P. S. Undoubtedly a copyright violation, too, although widely reproduced all over the Net. It appears to be an Associated Press photograph of one Lee Wotherspoon in Hong Kong on April 24, 1997. Dpbsmith 10:05, 10 May 2007 (EDT)

    • Staple has many counterproductive edits, and potentially offensive ones by labeling users with categories. I lengthened his block to 1 month. I don't know anything about a "swastika" but feel free to make his block permanent if that is what it sounds like.--Aschlafly 22:35, 27 April 2007 (EDT)

I'm going to unblock him; this particular article he wrote is actually a dish, as I just found out. My apologies. Karajou 18:31, 3 May 2007 (EDT)
  • I second that. User:RSchlafly hs been deleting and reverting a lot of my stuff and instead of debating the changes on the talk page he made statments like "Your beliefs are ridiculous". He has now protected the page so I can't make any changes.Mmeelliissssaa 13:22, 6 May 2007 (EDT) This user is a sock of Icewedge and has been blocked.
I oppose this alert, at the risk of POV-pushing, geocentrism is risible IMO. --Liπus the Turbohacker(contact me) 22:39, 6 May 2007 (EDT)
This is not the place for insults. Please see my detailed account on Talk:Geocentric theory before you make such judgements. --OfficerDibble 04:19, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Insults? Where? Please don't make random accusatory posts, OfficerDibble, okay? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 05:01, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
"I oppose this alert, at the risk of POV-pushing, geocentrism is risible" I take "Risible" to be insulting, since I have worked long and hard to make the points I have on the article. --OfficerDibble 05:27, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Well, if you object to furious editing of your work, and debate about it, a wiki is the wrong place for you. Your tone borders on the dramatic. If you are into drama, might I suggest working on one of the acting/dramatic arts pages? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 05:33, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
    OfficerDibble and myself have been following the comandments of conservapedia, RSchlafly has been deleting our work with out discussing our valid points. Be even objects to relevent bible verses being included. And the page block prevents us from making any changes. Clearly we are in the right here, as can plainly be seen in the history and talk page of the article. Also I have not been blocked and I am not a "sock of icewedge".Mmeelliissssaa 12:11, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
No Action Rschlafly is a Sysop Geo.Talk 12:12, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
So are we to take this to mean that Sysops have carte blanche and can do whatever they want whenever? Jrssr5 14:44, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
  • You are to take it per the CP Guidelines. [[6]] Failure to follow the directions of an Administrator, as to what is, and is not, appropriate behavior/content/actions, is a blockable offense. So is never-ending argument. --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 19:32, 7 May 2007 (EDT)
TK, is a simple precise answer such as No, Sysops do not have carte blanche and cannot do whatever they want whenever they want to much to ask? Auld Nick 05:02, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
  • When you leave your glass house, Auld Nick, perhaps you would make a better spokesperson for transparency and short comments. Either you are completely obtuse, or just ignoring what the Guidelines say, for a better (read dramatic) retort. Obviously at any website in the world, Administrators have more leeway than users. Just as that aging hippy Jimbo has at WP. Anything else on your mind? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 05:48, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
Thank you for the civil answer. That has clarified things for me. Auld Nick 06:49, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
I greatly resent users putting me on the spot about what another Sysop does or does not do. First, it isn't fair or polite. Secondly, if the intentions of the user were honorable, in my opinion, they wouldn't seek to make a public scene about it, and might, if they were using good manners, email about it. Is that really so unreasonable? --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 09:03, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
For the record we (or maybe just myself) didn't put you on the spot, the question was asked of Geo and you chose to respond. And I disagree about the honorable thing, if it is honorable, why not talk about it in public to let others decide. Doing things by email, behind everyone's backs make it seem like someone has something to hide. Jrssr5 09:18, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
Well of course you do. But I was addressing Auld Nick. Sorry, we all don't agree with your wiki ways of doing things. It is a software, not a way of life. Your post smacks of Wikipedia bullying, it won't work here. You are now warned. Don't continue this. Take it up with the Sysop in question. Geo, BTW, answered you; "No Action". --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 09:32, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
When you say your wiki ways, are you refering to me or Auld Nick again? And am I warned or Auld Nick? What wikipedia bullying tactics am I or Auld Nick using that are so different from you warning to block me or Auld Nick from this wiki? It is very hard to fill in the blanks and figure out what you mean when replies are very cryptic and sarcastic. And I did take it up with the sysop in question (as seen above), I asked Geo for an answer after he stated "No Action", he never replied. Jrssr5 09:42, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
  • Well, sorry to have confused you. By the way, the Sysop in question is RSchlafly, not Geo, not me. We merely attempted to provide answers, for which we have been whipped for. Now, take me seriously, no more on this. You have been given instruction by a Administrator to take it up with the Sysop you were/are complaining about, and told no action will be taken. --Sysop-TK /MyTalk 09:54, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
  • In response to the question by Jssr5, the reason for no action is that this is not the appropriate forum to debate tohe actions of a current Sysop. Geo.Talk 22:17, 9 May 2007 (EDT)
