I will tone down the edit comments.

thanks. StephenE 14:37, 15 July 2009 (EDT)

Good pick on the troll CameronJ. He was shown the door. Karajou 15:16, 15 July 2009 (EDT)
Just hit me what a really immature thing that was to do. I owe you an apology. Thanks, and thanks for restoring my faith in the common sense of people. JCameron 15:21, 15 July 2009 (EDT)
Even if I just became a member here, I'm keenly interested in the divides between liberals and conservatives and between people of faith and those without faith that are so important to the way our country works, and over the past few months I've followed Conservapedia as part of my interest in those topics. I understand the idea that people--for better or worse, for right or wrong--are opposed to the ideology that underlies this project, and for the most part I can (sometimes begrudgingly) respect that opposition because I value freedom of thought and speech. But to deliberately spread lies and falsehoodsin order to make your ideological opponents look bad hurts everyone. If there is truth behind your ideals, those ideals will triumph on their own merits.

astronaut?

Do you not consider "Astronaut" to be a title? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 21:27, 17 July 2009 (EDT)

Not really, sir--as I recall, most astronauts have a officer's military rank, which of course, would be capitalized, but I don't believe I've ever seen "astronaut" capitalized like, say, "Colonel" would be. Of course, I'm willing to concede the point to more experienced editors. StephenE 14:36, 19 July 2009 (EDT)
Titles, being proper Nouns, should be in upper case. Astronauts, plural usage, non specific would not be capitalized, however as part of a title, referring to a specific person, would be upper case. I checked with another Admin on this, and he agreed as well. So, it is yet another mixed use Noun....which is the case on the NASA and other websites, when I looked. So, let's just capitalize it when referencing a specific, okay? Thanks! --ṬK/Admin/Talk 15:35, 19 July 2009 (EDT)
Not a problem, sir. Sorry for creating any problems.StephenE 15:39, 19 July 2009 (EDT)
No "problem" whatsoever! Thanks. --ṬK/Admin/Talk 19:28, 19 July 2009 (EDT)

Liberal Correction Comments

Can you stop with all the correction comments? If you insist on adding United States Founding fathers, I will have to block you and I have already mentioned it before. It is either American Founding Fathers or America's Founding Fathers or founding fathers of America. In the future, you would be best to read Essay:Liberal Behavior on Conservapedia. You are guilty of #15 and #20.--Jpatt 14:00, 31 August 2009 (EDT)

And you are guilty of poor wiki-behavior in that I have spent quite a bit of time working on articles in dire need of good editing and the least you can do is thank me instead of berating me. Perhaps I was mistaken on the accepted nomenclature re: the Founding Fathers (but at least I know to capitalize the term), and if that was the only problem with your articles you might have more of an argument. StephenE 14:11, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
  • The term should be American Founding Father, if referencing one of them, and collectively the Founding Fathers of the United States, or just Founding Fathers. I suggest, Stephen, you cool it with the groaning edit comments, as oftentimes they could be humorous, or just exasperation showing, but could convey nastier connotations to some. Perhaps less unilateral, lone wolf editing, and more suggestions/conversation on the talk pages, would help? Insulting Jpatt isn't going to be a winning strategy, you know....I mean you do know that, right? --ṬK/Admin/Talk 14:24, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
Perhaps, sir: but neither is a belligerent attitude toward editors. StephenE 14:26, 31 August 2009 (EDT)
