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

NSFW is an internet warning to people, typically given after an awesome link that will reduce your boredom and make the day worthwhile. It means "Not Safe For Work": i.e., the content may be entertaining in one way or another, but if you go there on your company computer, it will be on your permanent record. And if anyone glances into your cubicle when you're there? Odds are the harassment suit has already been filed.

The term has been popularized through the drunken antics of Drew Curtis.

  • Maybe you can get away with boobies on your work computer screen (and permanently in your archived history).
  • Maybe you can get away with Nazi imagery on your work computer screen (and permanently in your archived history).
  • Maybe you can get away with some crap at RationalWiki (oops, too late!) on your work computer screen (and permanently in your archived history).

Most people can't.

IF IT SAYS NSFW, DON'T GO THERE AT WORK! (Or school, for that matter, although chances are it has already been blocked anyways.)

For even worse situations[edit]

Not Safe For Life (NSFL) is, as Urban Dictionary puts it, "doesn't matter where you view the material; you will be scarred."[1] Common on Reddit for stuff that isn't technically NSFW but is still horrible.
