Just a quick poll on what people think. It is anonymous.

Well I'll continue to treat it as a joke site, but now it's more haha-sad. Some of the stuff on there is so stupid, it can't be anything else other than a joke.

I view it as on pretty much the same level as the free republic, redstate.com, or little green footballs.

Its kind of sad to see, but there are people who very much believe in it.

Nope. The people behind it are very serious as far as I can tell.

If they are serious, then they are dangerous. We have far too many fools who buy into this propaganda. And liberal propaganda is equally as bad.
But the bias is so obvious, its either a joke or a Democratic "plant".

Please, an example of "liberal bias" in Wiki. I do believe that it may be there, as well as conservative leanings.
Anything written by man will have these things.

Yes they are the same idiots.

Dude I don't know any examples. I was being sarcastic in my post. I think Conservapedia is just one huge joke. But here is what Conservapedia says.

Wikipedia shows a systematic bias in that tiny proportion of articles which treat controversial issues. It ignores its own NPOV policy when it allows contributors to "delete well-referenced information" merely because it comes from a scientist who holds a minority view. It would only be a violation, if the article used the information to give a false impression of the proportion of scientists adhering to that view, but liberals use "undue weight" like a sledge hammer. They are either unaware or unconcerned about their bias.
This is not surprising, given this Zogby poll:
While 97% of Republicans surveyed said the media are liberal, two-thirds of political independents feel the same, but fewer than one in four independents (23%) said they saw a "conservative bias". Democrats, while much more likely to perceive a conservative bias than other groups, were not nearly as sure the media was against them as were the Republicans. While Republicans were unified in their perception of a left-wing media, just two-thirds of Democrats were certain the media skewed right – and 17% said the bias favored the left.

could i just say that conservopedia is not valid AT ALL?

The third option for each ideology is for people with that sentiment or you can choose other if you wish to make an even stronger statement.

It really does appear to be a parody site, so if it is meant to be real, it really is kinda sad. But I highly doubt anyone would really take it seriously who didn't already have most of those beliefs anyway.

We have had posters use it as a source to prove their assertions on this very forum. ;)

Liberal - Conservapedia

A liberal (also leftist) is someone who rejects logical and biblical standards, often for self-centered reasons. There are no coherent liberal standards; often a liberal is merely someone who craves attention, and who uses many words to say nothing.[1] Liberalism began as a movement for individual liberties, but today is increasingly statist and, as in Europe, socialistic.

Wow... :doh

When talking about other specific articles, Conservapedia is somewhat valid to my world views, but this is just ridiculous. Honestly I thought their assessment of liberals would be a lot worse though, haha.

Oh God I hope the person that clicked I am a conservative and this represents my world view either misclicked or is just screwing with the poll.

Well, you know, when you're a nut, the only option you have for support/evidence of a nutty argument must necessarily come from other nuts. :lamo

Why would it not be valid to anyone's world view? It seems to me that those who think that are simply closed-minded.

Oh lookie, most are admitted liberals.

As noted above, Conservapedia is absolutely valid to the world view of conservative nut cases.
