Andrew Schlafly recently described Conservapedia to a “T”… the problem is, he was talking about how he perceived Wikipedia:

My understanding is that not everyone can edit everywhere on Wikipedia.  I thought many pages are locked against editing, and anyone who inserts truthful but conservative information into certain atheistic or liberal entries (e.g., evolution, global warming) will be immediately reverted and blocked if he continues.

Is the man completely incapable of seeing the irony behind what he says, given the vast amount of locked articles on CP, combined with his block-happy band of goons?

About PsyGremlin

PsyGremlin is a former Conservapedia sysop (although the position was earned nefariously), stand up comedian, DJ, and is currently a self-employed financial adviser, who impersonates a responsible adult at least 5 days a week. However, highlighting and poking fun at the crazies out there remains his first love. Well besides pork crackling. And custard. And cricket.

    I must say Wikipedia has an increasing number of semi-protected articles, but seeing as you need about 10 edit, 4 days and no blocks it is not that bad. I can’t see why CP doesn’t use semi-protected more. Set it at about 50 edits and 2 weeks and it should stop most drive by vandalism of high profile articles, but that would take thinking and planning.

    My guess is Andy would like to believe Wikipedia blocks and protects like Conservapedia, but run by a liberal mob as it makes him feel justified for the oppressive state he runs his meritocracy.

    I’m sure you can’t just get blocked on a whim either on WP – there’s probably all sorts of processes to go through – like Rob Smith went through when they finally blocked him.
    Sadly, seeing as any dissenting voice will be silenced on CP, that’s exactly how Andy will feel. And he’ll have his echo chamber to support him.
    Then again, it seems to be a conservative trait – I’ve lost count of the number of conservative blogs I’ve seen, who claim to “remove trolls and negative posts” – yet are the first to scream “censorship.” Very odd.

      All I had to do was admit to who I am to get blocked from Jinx’s blog. Funny my ISP seems to be very slow acting the terrible behaviour reported me for.

    It’s also worth remembering that Terry was pushing for CP to implement ‘flagged revisions’ – in other words, edits would only become visible once an admin had approved them.
    Given how slack they are with their other admin duties (except blocking and oversighting, of course), that could only spell disaster for them.

      What has happened to Terry? CP’s active users are backing in the triple figures.

      • cpmonitor says:

        I dunno. Maybe he had one too many fights behind the scenes and the other sysops finally grew a backbone and stood up to him. They certainly never did before – apart from Jessica and Justine. Maybe he’s finally gotten tired of it all, but I doubt it, seeing as that’s how he gets his jollies. Chances are, he’s on holiday – the Gary Glitter package tour, or something.
