RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

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: $3500Goal: $3500

Has Comic Sans been disabled at RW? WěǎšěǐǒǐďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 18:53, 10 June 2011 (UTC)

I don't think so. After doing a quick check, it is still enabled here at least. Aboriginal Noise Punkrock 19:08, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
It seems you have to quote it up: <font face="Comic Sans MS"</nowiki> which you don't seem to have to do with other fonts like Arial, Courier & Impact. Life is strange. WëäŝëïöïďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:22, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
YOU EYEGOUGING FUCKING BASTARD. I kIlL yOu. KiLl yOu dEaD. - David Gerard (talk) 19:44, 10 June 2011 (UTC)
I'd guess that it needs quotes because it's multiple words, unlike the others you mentioned (i.e. the software doesn't like whitespace). ThunderkatzHo! 19:49, 10 June 2011 (UTC)


Other than the fact that this article mentions PZ Meyers' use of it, I seriously fail to see how this is on-mission or even close. Though, if it is, I sure can't wait to debunk how Comic Sans has been used to cure AIDS. Recklessly Noise Punk What's this button do? Uh oh.... 08:05, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

I have a photo somewhere of Comic Sans in its Pentecostal church use which I'll find and upload. The article is marginal, but not IMO over the edge - David Gerard (talk) 08:49, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Like Papyrus, I think covering the cultural trappings of on-mission idiots is, ehh, not off-mission and not worth consignment to the fiery depths of crapspace. In any case, please hold off a few days while I seek out that photo (or, if all else fails, go take another one) - David Gerard (talk) 12:36, 11 June 2011 (UTC)
Well, that's annoying - I seem not to have saved the pic in question. Will need to get it again - David Gerard (talk) 07:42, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
The one I just added from Flickr is just a noticeboard, but the church I'm thinking of (it's in Bethnal Green, near the train station) has all its external signage in Comic Sans. Absolutely going full retard - David Gerard (talk) 07:52, 16 June 2011 (UTC)
Bumping the discussion - I personally have no opinion, but we aught to resolve the banner issue.Pink mowse.pngEn attendant Godot 21:21, 7 September 2011 (UTC)

Kids! This site is all yours is written in Comic Sans. I was trying to dig up more examples from Pharyngula, but got distracted with the latest idiocy from the Journal of Cosmology.--ZooGuard (talk) 07:10, 8 September 2011 (UTC)

Marvelously appropriate! If only they'd used it for the body copy too - David Gerard (talk) 13:39, 18 January 2015 (UTC)
