Andy,
 
I have a disagreement with User:Ed Poor over the name of a page. The page is for the '''[[It Gets Better]] Project'''. [http://www.itgetsbetter.org/ The official name] includes the word "Project". Ed disagrees that it is a real project and therefore believes it should not be part of the title. I, on the other hand, do not believe that personal opinions on that should get in the way of factual information. Such an opinion should be in the article if he wishes it to be included. I was hoping that you would offer your opinion on the matter since I do not wish to get into an edit war. Thanks, [[User:Ayzmo|Ayzmo :)]] 15:59, 4 March 2012 (EST)

Information about Conservapedia

Hello Mr. Schlafly. User Jpatt redirected me to your biography, and I had several questions for you about your personal background and the site itself. If possible, our class work would be published in Loyola's primary publication, the Phoenix. http://www.loyolaphoenix.com/ 1. I read the information about the founding of Conservapedia, and I'm interested in more details. What drove you to make the choice to move from Ivy League law practice to online communication and media dissemination? Do you have any advice for someone looking to publish on the web, especially given that technology moves so quickly in the modern age? Thank you for the information. Sarah

The traditional media options have been:
  • write a book, with a typical best-seller reaching only about 30,000 people, and only one one topic
  • appear on television, prevented by the format from conveying anything of substance and reaching only a "dumbed down" audience
  • print a newspaper, which is too slow and anachronistic today, and dominated by biased liberals
Conservapedia is obviously better than all the traditional options. Conservapedia reaches far more people, on far more topics, than hundreds of best-selling books. Conservapedia provides substantive information in contrast with the television medium, and to an audience that is not dumbed down as TV viewers are. Conservapedia is also much quicker than newspapers, and free of the their liberal bias.
As an added, bonus, Conservapedia incorporates the best of the public. Your student newspaper should consider switching over to a format like Conservapedia to benefit from insights and information offered by your students, and to provide more content than the fixed format can. But some liberals in the media oppose opening their formats to more public input, because that reduces liberals' ability to censor and control. Increasingly, traditional media are about controlling information rather than providing it. Thank God that Conservapedia contributors are able to bypass that liberal censorship here.--Andy Schlafly 10:15, 3 March 2012 (EST)
I don't know how Loyola's newspaper works, but UConn's paper allows any student at the university to write for them, and with a few exceptions, can't censor content based on opinion (presumably because we are partially funded by University Funds. As of tomorrow, I'm going to be a writer for them, so I'm not going to cost myself a job by saying anything bad. But it does have a huge liberal bias. Gregkochuconn 19:22, 4 March 2012 (EST)
That's an interesting observation, Greg. As you suggest, I think that may be an advantage of state schools.--Andy Schlafly 20:39, 4 March 2012 (EST)

Elvis Presley movies

Mr. Schlafly, in this article, the formatting is set off by the infoboxes used for each movie. Is there a way to fix this, or would creating a separate article for each movie (I am not necessarily sure on the site's policy) be more acceptable? And if the latter is the more acceptable option, could you delete the old article after I transfer the information? I will edit the Elvis template accordingly. I hope to also put up image requests for film posters to add to the infoboxes as the article(s) develop further. Thanks.--James Wilson 16:43, 3 March 2012 (EST)

Title

Andy, I have a disagreement with User:Ed Poor over the name of a page. The page is for the It Gets Better Project. The official name includes the word "Project". Ed disagrees that it is a real project and therefore believes it should not be part of the title. I, on the other hand, do not believe that personal opinions on that should get in the way of factual information. Such an opinion should be in the article if he wishes it to be included. I was hoping that you would offer your opinion on the matter since I do not wish to get into an edit war. Thanks, Ayzmo :) 15:59, 4 March 2012 (EST)

"It Gets Better" is a lot of things: a slogan, a video, an actual "dead tree" book [1] and a campaign. Feel free to make a section about any distinct project you may discern, at the It Gets Better page. And also remember even the media don't call Savage's partner a "husband". --Ed Poor Talk 20:41, 4 March 2012 (EST)

Dear Mr. Schlafly,

I saw that you deleted the vandalism at Talk:1. However, you must have inadvertently left the article page, 1, intact (even though it is vandalism created by the same blocked user). It is currently marked for speedy deletion. GregG 19:21, 4 March 2012 (EST)

Thanks. I just removed it as you suggested.--Andy Schlafly 20:30, 4 March 2012 (EST)
