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 2021.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !
A ghost town is a formerly occupied town, now deserted. They are common in the American West, and, less obviously after so long, in parts of Europe decimated by the Black Plague.
Ghost town is frequently used as a metaphor for an area with greatly reduced traffic, as in "the financial area became a virtual ghost town on the weekends".
"Ghost Town" is also a song by the Specials.
