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

It has been noted by a few that there is no formal conflict resolution process on this site. There hasn't been much of a need, as conflict resolution on wikis usually involves edit wars. Thoughts?

I think this page should be renamed "Donnybrooks", And I'll fight anyone who says otherwise. DickTurpis 14:27, 14 March 2008 (EDT)

Stop in the name of love[edit]

Some time ago, I invented the:

This conversation is about to go badly downhill, inevitably ending in comparisons to Hitler, and hurt feelings all around.
Stop now. Step away from the keyboard.
Go pet a jerboa, or milk a goat.

template for deployment against TK induced arguments. It didn't work terribly well, but had it ever been deployed against me, I'd respect it. — Unsigned, by: Jeeves / talk / contribs

That might have been useful - oh, about five hours ago. DogP 17:25, 14 March 2008 (EDT)

No-one was ever compared to Hitler in that thread, if that is indeed the same thing we're talking about... MarcusCicero 19:32, 14 March 2008 (EDT)

No, but unsurprisingly, horseplay indoors did indeed lead to thumbsucking, hoighty-toightyness, huffs, and stomping offs. Whatever, I'm off to de pub. Feck de lot of yiz. DogP 19:43, 14 March 2008 (EDT)
