Do we really need a woo category if we already have a pseudoscience category? I'm not getting what the differences between the two are. ThunderkatzHo! 12:50, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

(accidentally deleted in edit conflict) I read woo as a subset of pseudoscience - the medical side. Keep cats 12:53, 17 August 2007 (CDT)
Not arguing for the cat (it's new, with only two files in it - woo and, for some reason, water fluoridation), but I think woo is a subdivision of PS. And might not completely overlap. A seance is definitely woo, but doesn't really pretend to be science, so it's not PS. ID or 'creation science' is definitely PS, but not really woo. Magic herbal supplements are probably both. Just my .02 on the topic. humanbe in 12:56, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

I'm responsible for the Woo cat. (Woocat?). I had intended it to be a catch-all for all non-pseudoscientific things, for example, stuff that makes New Age Hippies go "wooo" might include the Millenium Bug (that caused a major woo from an associate of mine, he looked crazy foolish on Jan 3rd with his full palettes of dried food taking up useful space in his garage). He also was very concerned (do I need to tell you?) about flouridation. I may well have been wrong to add woo as a cat, and if it's voted down, I'm with that. I'll just go and sulk in the corner.

That helps - if you do create a new cat that isn't necessarily clear in its use, just click the ole' red link for it and describe what you mean it to be for. humanbe in 16:19, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

You really are a naughty boy, aren't you? Keep cats 14:03, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

I probably deserve some 'discipline'. Wooo! Doggedpersistance 14:08, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

I hope you aren't demanding anything. You'll have to await my pleasure. And leave my woocat alone! Keep garlic for vampires 14:27, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

Woo yay? HexspecimenIt's an X 14:29, 17 August 2007 (CDT)

Since when did bullshit becomes a subset of woo? shouldn't it be the other way around? Thieh 08:03, 1 May 2009 (UTC)
