Category talk:Insufferable assholes

From RationalWiki
Jump to: navigation, search


Looks like a joke category from a different era. Since pretty much all of these people are covered by wingnuttery, moonbattery or batshit crazy, I vote that this category go the way of "We're On A Mission From God" and "Stiffs". Balaam (talk) 17:15, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Wingnuttery et al covers people who are likely insane -if they weren't so awful, I'd pity them, anyway. We should have a category of people that should know better -cynical fucks and people who have more power than decency. I'm not sure if this would cover it. --TheLateGatsby (talk) 17:24, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Keep some people are sane and are still Insufferable ...holes. Proxima Centauri (talk) 17:47, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Ditto Balaam. @Gatsby: Category:Enablers might work there. Nebuchadnezzar (talk) 17:54, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Some of these guys are "insufferable" (Ray Comfort) and some of them are "assholes" (Thunderf00t) but relatively few are really both. I don't think we'd lose much by depreciating this category and getting rid of it. Scarlet A.pngd hominemModerator 17:58, 3 September 2012 (UTC)
Okay, if we do have such a category as enablers, then I vote to delete Category:Insufferable Assholes. — Unsigned, by: TheLateGatsby / talk / contribs
D'oh. I hate when I do that. Marked it. --TheLateGatsby (talk) 18:13, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Fuck no, this category should've been kept because these people, like Michele Bachmann, truly are insufferable assholes. Reckless Noise Symphony (talk) 01:24, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

Hey, I'm an insufferable asshole and deleting this category will severely hamper the ability for people to seek me out. Acei9 01:37, 4 September 2012 (UTC)
Then make it a user cat and be done with it. ТyJFBAA 01:45, 4 September 2012 (UTC)

soooooo a year + later... Tyrannisan iron, yet caring fist 00:46, 3 July 2014 (UTC)

I don't think this category should be removed - it's useful and it's funny. Although I would like to see people like Steve Bannon, Kellyanne Conway, Tucker Carlson and Seagulls, the assholes among birds added to the list. --Jojobaplant (talk) 21:48, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
