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 who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

Debate:Do Wikipedia's flaws endanger the project?
I recently flipped through Wikipedia and I've noticed several problems. The biggest is the insane amount of Wikilawyering going on. It seems that almost nothing can done because everybody is throwing around their version of the rules, and everyone else has a counterrule that seems to invalidate the first. We're currently watching CP grind to a halt because of their lack of clear direction, lack of set rules and ability to protest, but it seems to me that WP is having the same end result for the opposite reasons. Any thoughts? SirChuckBI have very poor judgement 00:20, 19 November 2008 (EST)
- Please elaborate a bit. I really have only been a bit of a wikignome there for the last 6 months, popping in and looking after the few things noone else would do if I didn't. - User 00:29, 19 November 2008 (EST)
- Feel free to look at my Wikipedia contributions on talk pages for many examples, I "wikilawyer" as a hobby. tmtoulouse 00:57, 19 November 2008 (EST)
