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

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

Donations so far: $6000Goal: $6000

The Digg Patriots are a group of around 100 conservatives and Tea Party members, who were active around 2010 on the social media site Digg.com, as well as other sites across the Internet. [1] At Digg.com, they engaged in active censorship of posts, burying or voting down any post they perceived as being liberal, or progressive; upvote padding; conspiring to have progressive editors banned, while running multiple accounts in order to circumvent blocks received by their own members. [2]

Their actions were exposed after a year-long investigation.

The Digg Patriots later migrated to reddit.com, where they congregate at /r/NoLibsWatch, where they continue much of their previous behavior by downvote brigading, doxxing, and filing false reports to get reasonable users who disagree with them banned.
