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: $5800Goal: $6000
Information icon.svg The 2018 moderator election has started! We are electing 6 moderators and 2 alternatives to serve in 2019. Nominate users here and read their campaign slogans here!

Fun talk:More insidious examples of political correctness

This should never have been moved from the mainspace article. Out of context, it's not even funny. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:17, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Hate to break it to you, human. It wasn't funny in context either. --Kels 04:23, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Beg to disagree. But maybe I was the only one who thought they "got the joke". Did you ever read the entire article from start to finish? In bits and pieces, it doesn't work. You have to read it all. Oh well, If I'm the only one who liked it, I can always copy my favorite diff to user space or essay. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:28, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
The list looks like one of Andy's "essays". I think the rest of the article is better off without it. Some of them are funny, but I thought it was just too long. Maybe move a few of your favorites back to the Language section. Jorge noes teh maths 04:32, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
That's the whole fucking point! Why don't you guys "get" the joke that the PC article is/was? I moved them all back (undid your cut and paste). Please argue against individual items on the talk page? Surely some could go, but removing them all ruined the article. ħumanUser talk:Human 04:34, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Keep it, then. Put what you want back, I've gotten to the point of not caring any longer. --Kels 04:36, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
As I stated on the other talk-page, I get the joke, but support the removal of the long section for being too rambling. Mjollnir.svgListenerXTalkerX 04:37, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
Why don't we just carefully pare it down? No need to quarantine it here. Surely we can discuss individual lines on the talk page? This whole thing started with Jorge, an editor/sysop who yesterday blocked Ungsst for "disagreeing" (which I let fly, but really he should have been chastised at AA), wanting to "Clean This Up". Next thing we know, he cut the entire section out and moved it to "fun". Is that how we "edit" articles? ħumanUser talk:Human 04:40, 9 May 2009 (UTC)
I think we've agreed that moving some of the items back to the "Language" section of the main article is fine. Jorge Legendary Creature-Human Ninja 19:50, 9 May 2009 (UTC)

Paring down/deleting this list[edit]

It seems to me that majority of the items on this list still are not funny and some are not even examples of political correctness. Anyone else think this needs paring down or deleting?--The General talk to me 15:29, 14 September 2014 (UTC)
