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!

Please honor their request. (Inquiries here)

Lets be honest with ourselves here. What really happened was that formally all talk pages, and edits, bar obvious vandalism, were sacrosanct. It was assumed that users were mature enough to ignore or even ridicule those comments which might upset them. Instead, due to the rather conservative tendencies among people here (Namely the urge to ban, revert, and be authoritarian in relation to anything anyone doesn't like or is offended by) characterises the new rationalwiki, the wiki which involves wikipedian nerds like Gerard insisting on 'being a member of the community' - thus outlawing members such as Earthland - due to a peculiar definition of what characterises inclusion or not. Thus the Loya Jirga legitimises such authoritarian inclinations and makes such vulgar and extremists beliefs the new value system of rationalwiki.

In short, what was once considered sacred by virtue of every individual having an irrepresible right to freedom of expression, has now become a pithy reminder of how far this site has fallen in the stated objectives of its mission statement on the front page.

This article should now be rewritten in order to bear some relation to what it has actually become. - 17:57, 10 June 2010 (UTC
