Irrationality (edit|talk|history|protect|delete|links|watch|logs) – (View log)


  1. You tell us to merge, but what is there to merge? This article belongs in the trash imo. Senioritas (talk) 11:06, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
    It really says nothing.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 19:37, 8 September 2021 (UTC) Move to below.
  2. Irrationality is when you think without rationality. Wow, thanks, article. I could never have guessed that! Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 20:07, 12 September 2021 (UTC)
  3. Literally nothing to it. Anyone with an understanding of 'rationality' could guess what 'irrationality' is. Jake Holmesyell at me 13:57, 14 September 2021 (UTC)



  1. Merge with the article on rationality, create a new subsection and then copy & paste the content of the article there. Afterward, use the hyperlink Irrationality as a redirect. This afd was made since this article has been a stub for a decade, will probably never be improved upon and also WP:DUE.

  2. Looks like a prime candidate to turn into a fork page. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 13:01, 6 September 2021 (UTC)
    Other than rationality, I don’t see what you’d link it to. There are other uses of the word rational and irrational (most notably in mathematics), but we don’t have articles on those things. Christopher (talk) 12:24, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
    @Christopher There's Innumeracy. (Profile) - (Spoke!) 13:01, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
  3. Nothing to merge. Redirect to rationality. Christopher (talk) 12:24, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
  4. This article is appaling. Just redirect to rationality and call it a day. GeeJayK (talk) 20:25, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
  5. Redirect with or without merge to rationality, (I’ll support which ever option is more popular so we don’t have to deal with a no consensus limbo), so we don't have to deal with redlinks.Andrew5 (talk) 21:20, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
  6. Redirect to Rationality with a subheading on that article explaining what Irrationality is. -- Techpriest (talk) 21:26, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
  7. -Flandres (talk) 16:37, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
  8. (Assume my vote is the same as the most popular suggestion) Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 14:02, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
  9. This should have been part of the Rationality article to begin with. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:49, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
  10. I think we could, eventually, have a separate article on irrationality; I certainly don’t think we keep this irrationality article separate as it currently stands. For now, a redirect into the rationality article seems the best option. LeucippusSalva veritate 15:28, 15 September 2021 (UTC)


  1. Merge/redirect is fairly split between a redirect without a merge and with. While it is 6-2 with redirect over delete (0 for keep),3 support no merge, 2 support a merge, and 1 supports a fork page. How will we get all that sorted out? Andrew5 (talk) 23:29, 8 September 2021 (UTC)
    If there's no clear consensus, then the "Goat" wins and we do nothing. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 15:54, 14 September 2021 (UTC)
    Let's be honest here, there is still a consensus since it's 3, 2, 1, etc. (Profile) - (Spoke!) 13:59, 15 September 2021 (UTC)
    The divide is between a total delete, redirect without merge and redirect with merge, so the discussion ought to be changed.Andrew5 (talk) 14:01, 15 September 2021 (UTC)

New vote on whether to merge or redirect

Since Merge/Redirect won but there's no consensus in favor of either option, let's finally settle this for once and for all. Plutocow (talk) 19:03, 24 September 2021 (UTC)

Redirect to Rationality

  1. No need to merge, nothing valuable, and if someone really wants to merge, the history is there so they can. Andrew5 (talk) 20:26, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
  2. Theres nothing to merge. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 22:47, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
  3. Seirously, what is there to merge? Irrationality is not being rational? Thank you, Captain Obvious. BruceGrubb (talk) 15:26, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
  4. Nothing to merge. GeeJayK (talk) 17:33, 1 October 2021 (UTC)
  5. This vote is completely unnecessary, use some common sense. Christopher (talk) 11:34, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
    I agree. Heck, even back in 2011 there was debate as to what purpose the article even had. BruceGrubb (talk) 16:43, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
  6. Maybe there's an irrational attachment to descriptions of irrationality, no matter how short and half-baked the descriptions. --ApooftGnegiol (talk) 22:23, 3 October 2021 (UTC)
    Irrational descriptions of irrationality. Got to love the internet. BruceGrubb (talk) 04:04, 5 October 2021 (UTC)

Merge with Rationality

  1. (Profile) - (Spoke!) 21:47, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
  2. Of course I voted here. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:51, 24 September 2021 (UTC)
  3. You people better re-write the subsection as if fully merged it would be fairly awful. Senioritas (talk) 17:41, 27 September 2021 (UTC)
