RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

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

What the MSM isn't covering...[edit]

Just when you thought the kids were getting along so nicely, stuff happens. Mick McT (talk) 15:59, 25 September 2017 (UTC)

This is odd. Andy never holds back about his real feeling on Obamacare, abortion, E=mc2, or relativity, and he also promotes his personal views on Main Page Right. His restraint on airing his personal family problems on Conservapedia is admirable. Hclodge (talk) 13:18, 2 October 2017 (UTC)

A shout out from Ken.[edit]

[1]Two things stand out for me. How does one of the editors know he is in the 99.925 % IQ if "Only pretentious people take written IQ tests and/or join Mensa"? And wouldn't such intelligent people point out that it would be "Users:Conservative" not "User:Conservative"?--Mercian (talk) 23:16, 7 October 2017 (UTC)

"Checkmate atheists"? What if he really is a poe? —Kazitor, pending 00:05, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
coming out of my retirement from RW to briefly comment on this in that I can't believe after all these years Ken is still at this shit. Fuck man, do something else. It has been nearly 10 years since I first started reading CP and editing here and in that time I have gotten married, gotten divorced, had a child, bought a house, traveled to several different countries, worked my way up the corporate ladder, gotten a new girlfriend, crashed 2 cars, had a health scare, quit smoking, quit drinking, started drinking again, buried 2 family members, written half a book, moved in and out of three cities in 2 different countries and basically carried on with my life. But here is Ken spewing the same rubbish, in the same vein, on the same website as of nothing on his life has ever changed. Jesus fuck man, the guy is hopeless. Right - back to it again.

Is there a "quit drinking again" at some point in there? —Kazitor, pending 08:39, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
I don't know, maybe. Depends which organ gives out next I suppose. Acei9 08:41, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
I too had a health scare that I happened to mention on Rob Smith's talk page in a disagreement over free health care. The lovely Ken trolled me with such gems as "Atheism and cancer", "Godless UK and cancer". All over-sited and burned now of course. A man of real class.--Mercian (talk) 11:46, 8 October 2017 (UTC)
The irony of Ken of all people referring to someone else as a 'beta' is delicious. Delicious, I say. --Martin Arrowsmith (talk) 16:03, 10 October 2017 (UTC)

An old classic[edit]

5 Most Bizarre Kids Show Entries on Conservapedia, Houston Press. Just... atrocious. Mʀ. Wʜɪsᴋᴇʀs, Esϙᴜɪʀᴇ (talk/stalk) 18:48, 8 October 2017 (UTC)

"Conservapedia [is] literally the prose incarnation of the bats scene in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." I'm dying. LongLostLegend (talk) 13:09, 9 October 2017 (UTC)

Oh fer fuck sake Ken[edit]

Essay: Conservapedia Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an officially recognized mental disorder

Yes Ken, I'm giving you attention. You may now scurry off and masturbate furiously in happiness.

Oh yeah, and Google paraphrasing the top search term, on YOUR PC, based on YOUR search history, and YOUR cookies does not equate to Google recognizing anything as a psychological condition. Google is primarily a search engine, driven by advertising revenue, not the DSM4.

Countdown to essay deletion in 3... 2... --LongLostLegend (talk) 14:03, 15 October 2017 (UTC)

I am not sure whether to mock or pity him. He has gone on and on about compulsion with a compulsion that is borderline insane. Schlafly's "That made my day, User:Conservative! Thank you for your amazing insights"[2]img|Essay: Conservapedia Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an officially recognized mental disorder has just spurred him on.--Mercian (talk) 23:43, 15 October 2017 (UTC)
As in, even Andy recognises how silly this is and is getting a laugh from Ken's antics? Wishful thinking, probably. —Kazitor, pending 04:24, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
The essay has been around since 2010. The essay is obviously directed at RationalWiki and is ironically awesome.—CheeseburgerPlate (talkstalk) 04:30, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
PS Ken, I know you watch us obsessively, but you shouldn't rely on us for your front page news. It's the DSM-5 now, not 4, like reported above.img LongLostLegend (talk) 09:25, 16 October 2017 (UTC)
Oh hey, does that mean he has RationalWiki obsessive compulsive disorder? At least ROCD is a marginally cooler acronym. And to top it off, I just noticed he didn't even enter the right search terms. —Kazitor, pending 09:50, 16 October 2017 (UTC)

Sophos now blocking CP?[edit]

The company I work for, for another 5 days before I leave, uses Sophos web monitoring software to block 'questionable' sites. Pron, goat pron, girls in yoga pants etc. I came in this morning to find it is now blocking CP as 'alcohol and tobacco'. Who's wound Sophos up to get CP blacklisted?
