Campaign!

G'day, fellow RationalWikians! Don't forget to visit the Campaign page of the 2016 Board of trustees election in order to make your voice heard. Suggested activities include:

  • Endorsing select candidates (lending a hand to your loyal henchmen and/or glorious overlords!)
  • Anti-endorsing select candidates (character-assassinating your hated opponents!)
  • Providing moar goat (please wipe afterwards)
  • Just asking questions to the candidates

Your participation might help other users better direct their votes. More importantly, it'll show the world that we've yet to go full Citizendium in terms of election hype!

Generation Rescue is a not-for-profit anti-vaccine organization, run by anti-vaccine nut-for-profit Jenny McCarthy. According to their website, they are:

Dedicated to recovery for children with autism spectrum disorders by providing guidance and support for medical treatment to directly improve the child’s quality of life for all families in need.

Contrary to their own beliefs, there is enough evidence to suggest that they are doing the opposite to improving quality of life by convincing people to turn away from evidence based medicine.[1][2]

They bear no relation to Operation Rescue, the extreme anti-abortion group.
