Sumerian article: Crystalinks as a source?

Crystalinks as a source? From a cursory glance it appears to be flaky New Age and/or pagan website. You User page's has some contentions that are very poor as well. You need to step up your game if you want to remain an editor. Conservative 02:55, 15 July 2011 (EDT)

My only contribution to the Sumerians page was that last bit about how the irrigation is in conflict with Creation; I didn't write anything else including what was cited by "crystalinks." To be honest, I didn't look up that source to see how reputable it is. If I were you, I'd go after whoever cited the pagan source instead of me. BobSherman 03:14, 15 July 2011 (EDT)
By the way, you have been labeled as a parodist. I would go over your previous edits and make any changes that may be necessary. Conservative 03:25, 15 July 2011 (EDT)
You are correct about the crystalinks source. However, you still have been labeled as someone who is probably a parodist. Conservative 05:15, 15 July 2011 (EDT)
Wow! Way to apologise for your mistake, Conservative. TracyS 09:52, 15 July 2011 (EDT)
TracyS, please feel free to offer abject and profuse apologies to the parodist on my behalf. By the way, do you want to assist the parodist with the Soviet atheism article? He/she seems to have dropped the ball as far developing a robust article for this entry. :) Conservative 10:28, 15 July 2011 (EDT)
TracyS, I see you have been blocked. Given some of your recent post to me and your apparent sock accounts, I can't say I will shedding any tears about this matter. Think of the blocking as a blessing in disguise. Now you can do something more productive with your time. Conservative 10:47, 15 July 2011 (EDT)

Crystalinks is just an online timeline, it offers very little info beyond what happened when. My suggestion Bob, is to get several works on Sumerians by noted historians or archaeologists - like William F. Albright - and work on the article from there. Karajou 10:50, 15 July 2011 (EDT)


Thank you for editing Conservapedia. If it were not for your editing helping to spur the idea of the Soviet atheism article the Conservapedia:Atheism Project may have never been launched. I hope you and your son decide to zealously pursue this project together since so many atheists are very ignorant about atheism/Christian apologetics and have great difficulty spelling the words atheism, atheist and atheists at Conservapedia. Conservative 23:20, 15 July 2011 (EDT)

Conservative, I'm not sure what to make of it all. I'm glad I helped start a new, big undertaking here and I look forward to contributing if you give me the chance (although I doubt I could ever get my son in on it too). I would also like to say that I don't think it should be an offense to write on Andy's talk page if I have sincere questions for him. Additionally, I would like to reiterate a Theodore Roosevelt quotation that I've often seen proudly displayed on this site: "To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." The president isn't necessarily the only authority figure this quote should be attributed to. BobSherman 17:30, 16 July 2011 (EDT)
Andy's a busy man, so you don't realy want to appear as someone trying to just consume his valuable time. Rob Smith 17:33, 16 July 2011 (EDT)

Recreating user page

This page was recreated so that other sysops can examine if the block of User:BobSherman was justifiable under the Conservapedia Commandments and Guidelines. The reason given for multiple blocks has been, "parodist", and the blocking editor cites this editors user page as having parodic content. That may not be justifiable, as an editor's talk page is his castle and so long as there is no inappropriate content for a family friendly site, or other offensive material, that would not be a blockable offense, in my estimation. And "parody", as is commonly understood, refers to insertions of parody into mainspace articles.

These comments are beig posted here because the blocking editor in question has too often in the past been unresponsive to requests on his own user page, which makes interaction with him/her on the open wiki somewhat difficult. And if another user wastes their time of attempting to contact the blocking editor, the discussion has in virtually 100% of instances been deleted, making in difficult to even remember what the discussion was or resolution of any matter. Rob Smith 19:19, 24 July 2011 (EDT)

I had a look over this users contribs and, while he is sailing close to the bone when it comes "toeing the party line" to me it seems like a good faith effort to "fit in" as it were. I'd be inclined to unblock he user. But keep an eye out. MaxFletcher 19:25, 24 July 2011 (EDT)
The user was blocked for "parody", but I can't find it. I asked the blocking editor for the courtesy of providing it, and the blocking editor cited a statement on this user page, which would not be parody at all since users a free to do what they want with their castle. Can anyone find an instance of parody in mainspace this user placed warranting the length of block this user received? Rob Smith 19:43, 24 July 2011 (EDT)
As I said above, the only thing that could be considered "parody" that I could find are things that are extremely similar to what User:Conservative writes and, in fact, this user was creating articles that Conservative had asked be created! Perhaps the user is suspected of parody for creating articles that only User:Conservative could! MaxFletcher 19:48, 24 July 2011 (EDT)
