Delete[edit]

  1. This isn't missional. We are not a general reference site, nor an internet culture site. This article, if it needs to exist, would be better suited on another wiki Hastur! (talk) 07:14, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
  2. Just seems like a bullying page :/ Neiltyson1fan (talk) 07:49, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
  3. For once, Hastur and I both agree on something; this article just isn't missional. Our article on TJ "I hope you drown in rape s*men" Kirk already has a section on his e-begging, which I think is the only missional part of this article- and therefore I see no good argument for keeping this. That, and the fact that nobody's voted to keep it yet. --Goatspeed. See what I'm up toCircularREmail2.gifasoningSee what I've been messing around with 08:17, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
  4. This label might, maybe, possibly be a legit category (probably not) marking abusive users but, as a standalone, it doesn’t work. Taking begging out of the beggar’s full story weakens it to “here’s a list of bad people’s lesser-but-still bad behavior.” DerFluchtPlan (talk) 14:08, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
  5. It's just a fundraising technique, which can be used for good or bad by literally anybody. It's no more missional than the premium rate telephone line article we nuked a while back. Avida Dollarsher again 11:58, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

  1. Hopelessly tiny stub; started as a rather transparent attempt at self-promotion by two drive-by miggies who have "channels" on this irrelevant alt-tech hate site, and who have recently been spamming our site with stupid whitewashy stubs and then whining when we refuse to let them turn this site into yet another MGTOW playground, just like AoT did. This can easily just be cut-pasted into and redirected to our existing MGTOW article; there isn't much to talk about, as the topic isn't notable enough. --Goatspeed.

    Hopelessly tiny stubs originally created as self-promotion in draftspace are still hopelessly tiny stubs originally created as self-promotion. We have never treated our draftspace as a clone of the essayspace, where the pages must be left untouched by the mob unless they're really annoying; their being in draftspace hasn't stopped us from voting to either nuke or move-and-redirect similarly pointless drafts lately, and we don't need these drive-by MGTOWs shitting on our site. --Goatspeed.

    Unless draft space is indexed I don't see a reason why we need to care-Hastur! (talk) 07:35, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
    Because they are still articles speaking in our voice. Even if they're stubs, they're not clearly delineated as the work of a single editor, but rather the product of our community because anyone can edit Drafts (userspace Drafts are as a result more free form on this manner since they're clearly the users own product). The RationalWiki voice is supposed to be missional, and this article runs against that notion, even if it's in draftspace. It not being indexed by Google doesn't mean it's not hurting our image. Techpriest (I am Alpharius! / Pencil.png / Tux icon.png / Shield.png) 13:20, 24 December 2020 (UTC)
    Articles in Draftspace are not technically official RW articles yet. That sort of the point of Draftspace. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:54, 26 December 2020 (UTC)

Dietary cholesterol myth | Result: Moved to Dietary cholesterol. Doesn't look like anyone wants to delete it anymore.[edit]

Dietary cholesterol myth (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View AfD)

Delete[edit]

  1. This is not a myth. The most recent high powered studies find that it increases both blood LDL cholesterol, CVD risk and all cause mortality risk:
    https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/109/1/7/5266898
    https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/article-abstract/2728487
    And other high quality studies finding that it increases total blood cholesterol have been around for decades:
    https://www.bmj.com/content/314/7074/112?ij
    Even if all of these studies were wrong (I don't believe they are as they are higher quality than many of those mentioned in the article), it would clearly still be a matter of scientific debate, not a myth.
    In general the whole article contains many poor quality sources and unsourced misleading claims (for example that only vegans promote this idea) while consistently ignoring higher quality sources like those above.
    I suggest the page be deleted, or at least the name of the article should be changed to "debate" not "myth" and the extreme bias against the above science and any other bias should be corrected. AlecGargett (talk) 03:45, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
    All incorrect. Dietary cholesterol does not increase CVD risk or LDL cholesterol in the general population. The dietary Guidelines For Americans 2015-2020 have removed limits on dietary cholesterol. Show a recent umbrella review or systematic review for what you are claiming. You cherry-pick a handful of cohort studies and an outdated paper from 1997. You are not doing science. Lastly Google "dietary cholesterol myth". Mainstream health agencies now describe it as a myth. Johns (talk) 09:38, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
    That first claim is like saying heroin does not increase heroin levels in the general population (most people eat very little eggs, so of course it won't be significant), and it's not what the article claims. The article claims that there is a consensus of no risk, includes low quality studies while omitting *all* studies that contradict the claim of a consensus including the higher quality meta regression. "You cherry-pick a handful of cohort studies and an outdated paper from 1997." No, the meta-regression I linked included 55 studies and is higher powered than the umbrella studies. AlecGargett (talk) 09:04, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
    You were challenged to give a single systematic review to back up your claim that dietary cholesterol increases CVD risk and all cause mortality in the general population. You failed to do this, so you lost the challenge [1], you resorted to pasting in the same paper which you go on and on about because its the only evidence you have. You have not provided any new evidence compared to me pasting in loads and loads of reviews. I am not going to respond to you any longer because its clear you do not know how science operates. You say an umbrella review is low quality compared to a single meta-regression analysis. That is obviously not true. An umbrella review offers the highest quality evidence available (I am sure other editors here would back me up on this). This kind of review looks at many more studies than just 55 trials.
    In total I have provided 10 systematic reviews published from 2013-2020 and two umbrella reviews (I listed most of them) from 2020 that say dietary cholesterol from eggs does not increase CVD risk in the general population. Several of these concluded the opposite. For example they found that egg consumption has a significant reduction in risk of CVD. What you are claiming is a minority opinion not supported by the broad consensus which I listed. We do not ignore systematic reviews and umbrella reviews for a single meta-regression analysis that analyzed data from 2652 individuals. If dietary cholesterol significantly raises CVD risk then why does every health agency around the world claim the opposite and why are there no reviews that claim this? Have you thought this through?
    55 small sample studies from not even 3000 people is not conclusive evidence against hundreds of studies that have examined millions of people. The data from all the reviews I have listed adds up to millions of people from many different populations that is the best quality evidence in existence but you ignore it all for your minority view. You seem to be advocating a minority opinion because it suits your vegan bias so you just want to look at only a few thousand people sampled. Your claim that most people eat little eggs is not supported by any evidence either. See recent comment by another user on the talk-page. Japanese people have the highest life expectancy on the planet yet they eat the most eggs compared to any other country.
    According to what LeslyWilliams linked to [2] - A Japanese individual eats 320 eggs annually, does that appear to be a little amount to you? Lastly the meta-regression analysis you cite was mentioned in detail by the a panel from the American Heart Foundation they are more qualified than you and me on this topic and their review concludes dietary cholesterol does not increase CVD risk in the general population. They did their own meta-regression analysis and it contradicts the other "No significant association was observed between dietary cholesterol and LDL cholesterol or HDL cholesterol concentrations". Use the talk-page to continue any discussion about this but you lost the challenge so you lost the debate. You are not looking at what the majority of studies say. We should not give equal weight to minority viewpoints. I am looking at data from millions of people whilst you are looking at a few thousand. If you just ditched your pseudoscientific vegan diet and objectively looked at this you would agree with the scientific consensus. Johns (talk) 17:31, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
    How does AlecGargett explain this? https://academic.oup.com/ajcn/article/111/4/795/5713417 Association of egg intake with blood lipids, cardiovascular disease, and mortality in 177,000 people in 50 countries "In 3 large international prospective studies including ∼177,000 individuals, 12,701 deaths, and 13,658 CVD events from 50 countries in 6 continents, we did not find significant associations between egg intake and blood lipids, mortality, or major CVD events." Derek (talk) 02:40, 29 November 2020 (UTC)
  2. Yeah this ain't debunking anything, merely presenting a weak argument, for once side of the scientific debate on the subject, whilst dismissing the other. The premise of the article, incorrectly calls out legitimate scientific evidence, as a 'myth', which is absurd. Judge Dredd (talk) 16:45, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
    Unfortunately you don't understand this topic and have never edited a dietary related article on this website, you just want it deleted because you had your tech rights removed over that mess a few months ago, you blame me for that and now you log in here to eye up anything I edit. There is nothing I can do about that but dietary cholesterol does not increase total blood cholesterol and CVD risk in the general population. I have listed umbrella reviews and other evidence [3]. If you know anything about science you know that umbrella reviews are the best type of evidence we can get. It is very much a myth, even the NHS and British Heart Foundation says so on their websites. Eating an egg it does not increase blood cholesterol for most people, this is considered a 'myth' by mainstream health agencies. This is a scientific fact. It is a myth because it was once believed true. We don't need to delete a science based article. I don't think it needs a name change but if so we can discuss that. A deletion is way uncalled for. As for AlecGargett he is a known vegan activist. He wants the article deleted. Johns (talk) 16:59, 27 November 2020 (UTC)
    Irrelevant. This page is not missional as written, under this title. Altering the page radically, moving it to a new title, and fixing the obvious errors, would in effect make it a new page. If you want to cite, certain bodies, you will note that other bodies disagree... hardly conclusive. Your assertions are not supported by your evidence. Judge Dredd (talk) 11:09, 28 November 2020 (UTC)
    No there isn't a 'huge' debate about this topic hundreds of studies have been done on this and only a handful say the opposite, we don't need to go with the handful, we reflect the consensus (the evidence from the majority of studies). But I changed the title because Alec has been moaning about it. Its only vegan bodies that disagree. If you look at the scientific bodies and mainstream health agencies or organizations - British Heart Foundation, NHS, HEART UK, British Dietetic Association, American Heart Foundation etc they have all said on their websites that dietary cholesterol does not increase CVD risk in the general population. There is no conspiracy, why are they all saying the same thing? They are not all wrong lol. This is a website that represents the mainstream scientific view on health topics, we do not need to cite fringe views or one study out of hundreds saying the opposite. If one vegan organization claims the opposite we don't go with the vegan one. I am not aware of a single health body that claims dietary cholesterol increases CVD risk. You have admitted to veganism [4]. That explains your bias against the mainstream health view. This isn't a vegan wiki. What I show is the mainstream view. The vegan view is not mainstream therefore we do not need to give it equal weight. Johns (talk) 11:48, 28 November 2020 (UTC)

    If you regard right-wing liberals unconditionally as centrists, you can understand politics in a distorted way. For example, conservative liberalism, liberal conservatism, national liberalism and classical liberalism are right-wing ideologies, not center-left ideologies. Israel's Likud is also a national liberal party. But they use rather anti-Islamic and populist rhetoric, and are they centrists, too? In the North American "liberal" means social liberalism(=Center-left ~ Left-wing), but in Australia "liberal" means conservative liberalism(=Center-right ~ Rignt-wing).

  5. Yes, there are indeed some distinctions between the definitions of “liberalism” and “conservatism” as used in, say, US and European contexts (with the European one tending to be more like classical liberalism and the US being more like social liberalism, while US “conservatism” is more in the vein of radical right wing reform/revolution, than Burkean “change to conserve”). However, I have a hard time conceiving of the current examples in this category as being meaningfully liberal (without the “neo” prefix), as they instead tend to be either more about “conservative” (especially in the US sense) wingnuttery, similar to the wingnut appropriation of the human rights concept of “free speech” as a shield for their xenophobic/racist/bigoted/etc. shitting on other people, or about extreme neoliberalism than about any form of broader (classical/social) liberalism per se.

Overly specific, not obvious to the layperson what it means, I'd also take issue with several of the people in the category who are definitely not centrists or centre-left or Free Democrats - Wilders, Sarkozy, Liberal Party of Australia, Elon Musk, etc are variously Eurofascist, mainstream right, mainstream very right, full of shit, etc (individual members of any category are disputable but when there's a lot of disagreement it suggests the category is too vaguely defined). In fact it's hard to think of a centrist who doesn't have occasional wingnut ideas.

  • Unless there are other examples that clearly encompass both wingnuttery and (classical/social) liberalism and which can’t better be designated as outright neoliberalism (for examples of harsh, socioeconomic measures in the name of free market fundamentalism and the like), I think that this category makes little sense. Instead, it would probably make more sense to have some form of “neoliberalism” category for the likes of Bloomberg, Musk, Yeltsin and of course neoliberalism itself and chuck the rest into other forms of wingnuttery (as already mentioned, I think they’ll fit better into conservative wingnuttery).

    I agree, that’s why I suggest placing them in some form of neoliberalism category, though I may not have been clear in communicating this. ScepticWombat (talk) 13:09, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
    Bloomberg we can call a centrist-Hastur! (talk) 13:53, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
    Conservative liberalism and neo-liberalism are not synonymous. Therefore, this category must be maintained.--BluePink (talk) 05:58, 3 September 2020 (UTC)
    In theory, I’d might agree with the non synonymous argument, but in practice, we don’t currently seem to have any entries in the conservative liberalism category that isn’t either clearly conservative or neoliberal. And yes, I do include Bloomberg in the latter category, because US neoliberals calling themselves “centrists” is similar to US radical corporate rightists calling themselves “conservatives” (demanding radical changes, rather than Burkean “changes to conserve”). ScepticWombat (talk) 06:35, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
    BTW, if we keep the category, I think there might be something to be said for reversing the order to liberal conservatism, since most of the liberalism in these cases seem to be about the classical liberal aspect of free market (something that has morphed into outright free market fundamentalism in the case of US “conservatives”), more than about, say, civil rights (something that neither Bloomberg, Musk or Yeltsin seem to have been too concerned about). I guess my question is, what exactly is the reason to label Bloomberg, Musk and Yeltsin as being fundamentally liberal? And which definition of liberal (or conservative) are we using? ScepticWombat (talk) 06:47, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
    Liberal conservatism and conservative liberalism are different. There are the following 'conservative liberal' center-right political parties around the world.(ex. FDP.The LiberalsWikipedia, People's Party for Freedom and DemocracyWikipedia, ProgressistasWikipedia, Venstre (Denmark)Wikipedia, Democratic Party (Luxembourg)Wikipedia, Minsaeng PartyWikipedia etc.) Even in the Republican Party of the United States, former Presidents of Dwight Eisenhower and Nelson Rockefeller are not liberal conservatives, but rather conservative liberals.--BluePink (talk) 07:01, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
    Liberal conservatism and conservative liberalism are different Yeah I definitely see us as cutting down political categories even further. Left/right/centrist, moonbat/wingnut, categories for more specific movements (libertarianism or anarchism, for example). But further than that is just tedious, subjective, and honestly a little embarrassing for us. We're not taxonomists of politics and acting as such will bring us more headaches than anything else-Hastur! (talk) 07:06, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

    Is this a random blogger? Or is the article dressing up this person as more than just that? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 17:38, 31 August 2020 (UTC)
    She's hardly a random blogger; she's had a book published by Hachette, had articles in various well-known publications[6], and has a ridiculously overly referenced Wikipedia page[7]. The RW article doesn't really prove her relevance, although both as a humanist and a writer on race she may well be on-mission. --Annanoon (talk) 11:38, 2 September 2020 (UTC)
    I did some digging at that last one (the Wikipedia page). Take care to not think that a lot of references is grounds for her needing a page here, since I would argue it doesn't. Rather, the overreferenced material seems to be the result of an AFD request that went nowhere, where some people started digging up references to make her pass notability guidelines. Furthermore, the quality of her Wikipedia page is frankly on the low end, with a lot of slanted writing (not always bad on RW, but is always bad on WP), which to me suggests that it's written by a fan. Unless she's notable for having been on the receiving end of a hate campaign from the cranks we cover or if she holds moonbat beliefs or something similar like that (and nothing I see in her WP article suggests as much), I don't think we need an article on her. As it is, her page is just a simple advertisement that doesn't tell me anything I can't gleam just as easily from her WP page.

    Points of fact: Hydroxychloroquine is most commonly used to treat malaria, which is caused by a plasmodium infection, not bacteria. However, it has a variety of systemic effects that can counter various viruses. In particular, chloroquine was found to be very effective against SARS CoV-1 back when that was a topic of research. 192․168․1․42 (talk) 17:38, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

Keep[edit]

  1. Feel free to add counterpoints if you want. I just look at the science and the science is in favor. That is what p-values mean. I honestly can't figure out what the counterargument to hydroxychloroquine is. It is a safe drug... that has been known for years... and it has studies that show that it works. As for the media, the fact that they keep mentioning remdesivir in their articles seams to be a clear indicator of their complicity. The science behind remdesivir is not nearly as convincing and it can't even be used as a preventive or outpatient drug because it has to be used with an IV . And yet somehow remdesivir is always the clear winner. If you want me to move it into a personal page, fine, but I am trying to get the word out and save peoples lives. I am sorry if that is too controversial for you. By the way, I am not a republican... I have voted consistently democratic except Gore vs. Bush where I voted for Ralph Nader, although I suspect I will vote republican this year... I am an independent. I honestly worry about the direction this country is heading. We are losing are freedoms, such as being able to get a prescription filled for HCQ, because of corporate influence. That is a relevant issue. So is the fact that we haven't had a large scale randomized trial for HCQ and the one that was attempted is no longer being pursued. AndyChrist (talk) 15:02, 2 August 2020 (UTC)
  2. At any rate, the RationalWiki mission statement reads as follows:
    The RationalWiki Mission is:
    1. Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement;
    2. Documenting the full range of crank ideas;
    3. Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism;
    4. Analysis and criticism of how these subjects are handled in the media.
Hydroxychloroquine, claims made about it, and treatments in politics and media are obviously on mission. It's obviously a topic of current interest and importance. If the current state of the article is unsatisfactory, it should be improved rather than deleted. 192․168․1․42 (talk) 20:23, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

    I don't think it's something that the average person has heard of or uses. I think it's more like the pundit class using it against each other, and even then not much anymore. Only a few of the examples given have references that actually use the term. Bongolian (talk) 07:45, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
    Is this even a widespread term? Hadn't heard it before encountering it here. Honestly the article as it is just seems like an excuse to label whichever politicians/outlets editors don't like. An article on tone policing probably makes more sense-"Shut up, Brx." 08:01, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
    There are legitimate reasons to dislike the people and publications listed in the article, calling them "corporate shills" would probably get a few disapproving nods from the corporate shills here tho. Oxyaena Harass 10:25, 28 May 2020 (UTC)
