RationalWiki's 2019 Fundraiser

There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.

If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Can this site get rid of the pretense objectivity?[edit]

At least that way it would have some integrity, rather than parading left-wing ideology around as objective truth. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

RationalWiki:What is a RationalWiki article?. Of course, if you think our "left-wing ideology" is bad, you're always free to challenge it. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 15:50, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
@ Here's a comment with absolutely no pretense to objectivity whatsoever: you're not just a turkey, but an utter dingus as well, for missing this. Pip-pip cheerio! Reverend Black Percy (talk) 18:18, 18 March 2017 (UTC)
Just wanna say you have an outright lie on this page, you say that mediabiasfactcheck has you ranked the same as wikipedia, when in actuality the website has you rated as having a moderate liberal bias and if you look at community votes extreme left is in the lead by 40 votes. Either remove the section where you say that or edit it to reflect the truth please. Aoau (talk) 16:36, 28 September 2018 (UTC)
@Aoau What parts do you consider lies? How do they qualify as lies? How exactly does an opinion poll count as truth? Please reply so that we can try to resolve this matter. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:49, 28 September 2018 (UTC)

What happened?[edit]

I haven't been here in years. When did this place get infested with SJWs and faggots? — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

I believe the SJW-faggot infestation started in 2008. The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 16:46, 2 November 2017 (UTC)

This Wiki is anything but "Rational!"[edit]

A wiki is supposed to be facts, not speculation or a place to launch personal attacks on someone you don't like or believe. Provide scientific proof against a claim, but 99% of this wiki feels like the anger of a 12 year old. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

But I thought this was supposed to be RATIONALWiki! Also, please sign your talk page comments with ~~~~. L̤̈ÿ̤n̤̈n̤̈R̤̈ (̈ẗ̤ä̤l̤̈k̤̈)̈ (̈c̤̈ö̤n̤̈ẗ̤r̤̈ï̤b̤̈s̤̈)̈ @ 17:59, 27 November 2017 (UTC)
1) A wiki is just a type of website, it's not "supposed to be" anything (although this particular wiki does aim to be factual). 2) If you were to point to a specific page or section that is a personal attack or feels like the anger of a 12 year old (and given how many pages we have there are bound to be some) I'm sure someone would remove it, but instead you choose to make a vague, general, unsubstantiated claim that serves no purpose.

Gonna guess that BoN/Rationalpolice is referring to Ghost hunting TV shows, on which I rolled back his replacement of a 20kB article with "REMOVED OPINIONATED ATTACK. Wikipedia is a place for facts, not speculation." a few minutes before he started this thread/registered. Daev (talk) 04:20, 28 November 2017 (UTC)
Should we break it to the BoN that this isn't Wikipedia? GrammarCommie (talk) 04:26, 28 November 2017 (UTC)


Change your name to SJWiki[edit]

Because that's what you actually are. Your wiki has nothing to do with rationality. — Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

I think you're in the wrong place. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario!(Mod) 02:19, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
Gonna pretend to engage you. What is rationality? Conceptually, without respect to the particular things you're currently wrong and angry about what do you think defines rationality? ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 02:23, 30 September 2018 (UTC)
