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: $2120Goal: $3500

Fun talk:Nineteen Eighty-Four

Since we have a straight article on Nineteen Eighty-Four as well, I'm not seeing the point here :S Balaam (talk) 09:44, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Just having a straight isn't enough for a Deletion... though all this is is an Alt. Character Interpretation so... not seeing why we need it. --Mikal Harass Follow 14:53, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
I see what it's trying to do, but I don't see how it's fun. It's like something that would die a death on the saloon bar if there was a more interesting thread going. OTOH, if we deleted all non-funny articles from funspace there'd be major HCM and about ten remaining articles. SophieWilder 15:13, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
Nuke it, may be time to de-mothball the centralized destruction forum. ТyILAB 15:45, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
ADDENDUM: I see HeidelergKid wrote most of this, perhaps he can shunt it into his userspace? SophieWilder 15:14, 9 September 2012 (UTC)

Okay, putting in my two cents. The whole fun article was just supposed to be translating the article into Newspeak. Nix it, keep it, fix it up, I don't care. Just don't push it into my userspace. The Heidelberg Kid (talk) 19:20, 16 September 2012 (UTC)
