  1. Does there really need to be a page for a nonexistant term?—€h33s3βurg3rF@€3 Spinning-Burger.gif (talkstalk) 01:12, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  2. Agree, particularly since it's an internal RW nonce. Bongolian (talk) 03:22, 7 December 2016 (UTC) I have no problem with it being a section in Godwin's Law. Bongolian (talk) 20:29, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  3. Delete, of no utility - David Gerard (talk) 09:25, 7 December 2016 (UTC)
  4. This isn't a vanity wiki. Making up a phrase and then creating an article about it which says, "This was invented by RationalWiki User X" is not our thing. Spud (talk) 06:28, 8 December 2016 (UTC)
    Actually, we're expressly about making stuff up on the spot. That being said however, this thing is far from deserving of its own article (if deserving of a mention at all). See Merge/Redirect section below. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:40, 9 December 2016 (UTC)
    I think that RW is not about "making stuff up on the spot", as you say RBP. The text you cite is about synthesis of research or possibly ideas, not about making up phrases that no one uses. Admittedly, it is true that the GOP does erroneously refer to Lincoln as their ideological forebear often enough but what if anything do people call this behavior? There is already some discussion of this on the Lincoln page. Bongolian (talk) 21:03, 14 December 2016 (UTC)
