This person does not deserve to return if what he is saying "With the
legitimacy this afforded, I used email, TK's most favoured of media,
to turn away as many sane and reasonable users as I possibly could,
especially kids. Ever had a conversation with a blocked kid's parents?
They end up horrified by what Conservapedia is."

Essay:On the Present State of Conservapedian Defenses
From Conservapedia
Some people seemed dismayed at my leaving without a "parthian shot."
Well, I'm afraid I cannot comply, and this declaration will have to
suffice.
Conservapedia is continually under siege by vandals, liberals, and
parodists, yet what do any of these accomplish? Vandals only prove
their own immaturity, and are immediately reverted. Liberals waste
their time arguing, until they comprehend the thoroughly stoic nature
of conservapedia's administration, again accomplishing nothing. The
most skilled of parodists only serve to benefit Conservapedia from the
administration's standpoint, as they create content, purge those who
fail to adopt the party line, and are incessantly sycophantic. At
worst, they get rights, go on some silly spree, and it is all reverted
within a few hours. For all intents and purposes, the liberals' war
against Conservapedia has been solidly rebuffed.
And yet I fear there are serious cracks in Conservapedia's defenses,
flaws which leave it vulnerable to much more serious tactics of
assault than the aforementioned. Conservapedia's primary purpose is to
be an educational resource, with accurate, diverse information. But
what if a mischievous user, instead of linking images of Hitler and
inserting silly insults, poisoned Conservapedia's articles? What if
such a user inserted illusory facts into articles, quoted books never
written by men never born, and cited fantastical statistics from
studies never conducted? Imagine the glee such a person would feel at
seeing Conservapedia's administrators using those very same statistics
to refute sane individuals making reasonable arguments.
Yet here's the crux: such informational distortion could never be
fixed. Why? Conservapedia's administration has an extremely limited
field of expertise and, excepting the case of RJJenson, who does a
disservice to his name by continuing here, drives away anyone and
everyone with expertise. The user base itself is far too small to
actually check articles for accuracy, and even then, how is niche
knowledge to be differentiated from the absurd? The number of poisoned
articles increase daily, and as they typically don't tread onto the
obsessions with Obama and liberals, they will never come under your
scrutiny.
But before you go on a reversion spree, rest assured, my articles are
perfectly legitimate. As I've repeated needlessly many times, I came
to Conservapedia to add starkly lacking articles on literature and
some other areas of my expertise. Need there be any more proof of
Conservapedia's failure than the total absence of articles of such
critical cultural importance, more than two years on? So don't fear;
RodWeathers' contributions are legitimate. Though I doubt you'll
believe me, but invariably take down valuable articles in a
characteristic purge. Why would I undermine myself when Andy was so
eager to give me block rights, and would invariably have made me sysop
had I been at home when he emailed me with his paranoid information
request? (Edit and upload rights improved my ability to create
valuable articles, though for a brief time, but Andy chose to begin
with block rights, unsolicited, which in an instant turned me from a
credit to the site to a menace. With the legitimacy this afforded, I
used email, TK's most favoured of media, to turn away as many sane and
reasonable users as I possibly could, especially kids. Ever had a
conversation with a blocked kid's parents? They end up horrified by
what Conservapedia is.)
Nay, it's not this account that you need worry about, but the others,
which I use to undermine Conservapedia as a resource from day to day.
You don't know who they are, and will never know. I doubt you'll ever
manage to block so much as one of them, as I'm quite careful to keep
them all on different proxies. I'll give you hint by which you might
know them, however: they add content to articles, and sometimes
reference sources. Sometimes the material they add is factual, or
mostly factual, just stretching the truth. More often, it is the
fruits of fancy, spanning countless fields of human knowledge which
are completely beyond the Conservapedia administration's expertise.
That's why this is not a "parthian shot." I never parted, and never
shall. RodWeathers is immortal; he is immune to your poisons,
impervious to your weapons. I can never die, and my changes will never
be undone. If you even attempt to do so, I know the result: you'll
take out legitimate users while failing to take out the illegitimate,
and will utterly fail to spot my additions, compounding daily in the
form of Operation Enduring Legacy. Andy continually fails to discern
parodist fundamentalists from real fundamentalists; how could he
possibly differentiate between parody reality and reality itself? He
lives in a parody, which explains why he does not find it at all
amusing.
So ends an era, yet another has just begun.
