I find this quite bemusing. It's very in line with most of my thoughts on how everyone always thinks they're right ("of course I'm right, otherwise I wouldn't think it!!") and therefore their first port of call will be to think everyone else is dumber than them. Remember, 84% of drivers think they're above average. ADK...I'll abandon your nostril! 21:08, 21 October 2011 (UTC)

Essay stubs?[edit]

Do we have a policy about deleting stagnant essays if they don't have much to them? I'm fine if we just want to keep everything, but if we have a policy for essay deletion I think this article is a candidate for it.

It was only touched once 7 years ago, still seems unfinished and only lightly touches on a few points that have been well covered elsewhere. I'm 100% for keeping opposing viewpoints around no matter what they espouse and I think this site often deserves some ridicule thrown back at it, but this is just kind of mundane. I think this is covered entirely by Appeal to Shame, Dunning-Kruger Effect, Rationalwiki#Criticism, and probably RationalWiki:Pissed at us for good measure.

If it was more interesting I'd say it should be put in the drive-by essays category, because the user who wrote it seems to have been active for less than 2 hours. -MVHVTMV (talk) 06:25, 18 May 2017 (UTC)
