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 2020.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Appalling harassment of Tobias and cover up of crimes by EK[edit]

User:Tobias discovered off-wiki harassment of him] by another sysop, User:EK (aka Emblyn) on Wikipediocracy:

In that thread, EK is not only posting lies and baseless rumours about Tobias, but doxing his family members.

Tobias confronts EK telling them to stop:

EK tells Tobias to join Discord chat and talk to them. EK is on Discord as Emblyn.

When Tobias entered that Discord chat he is immediately attacked by EK who threatens to create a smear article about him falsely claiming he's a "conspiracy theorist", "troll" and "former ethnonationalist". No evidence was ever presented for these bizarre claims and were likely copied from troll sites like Encyclopedia Dramatica. Tobias responds asking evidence or proof of identity who is EK and why they are posting nonsense about him. EK then responded on both Discord and RationalWiki they will not verify their identity.

After doing a bit of Googling, Tobias thought he had discovered who EK is - based on a non-dox link which was merely Wikipedia. Another sysop would later point out that link wasn't doxing:

Tobias is then banned for harassment and doxing despite the fact he was confronting exactly that. It is EK going around the internet harassing Tobias and doxing his family members.

Can a mod please review this mess? Tobias has been desysopped and blocked for not valid reason. No Coop was even made. @Bongolian @GrammarCommie @David Gerard @DuceMoosolini Dragonic (talk) 15:35, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

I like how you talk about yourself in third person. And yes, it has been discussed here. --RWRW (talk) 15:46, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Interesting that he didn't ping me. Maybe because he still suspects me of being a sockpuppet of Mikemikev, something he very nearly accused me of being on RationalWikiWiki. Well, I'm glad we're finally free of the lying, paranoid, big-headed fucker. Not that I have any support for any of his many online enemies either, of course. None of them are nice people either.

Same here. RoninMacbeth (talk) 16:16, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
"Another sysop would later point out that link wasn't doxing" This is called quotemining. What I actually said was "Most of the content you are removing contains no doxxing, nor any controversial content that I can see", the key words being "that I can see". I freely admit that I could have missed something. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 16:17, 17 May 2019 (UTC)

Seconded. Commie Lib (talk) 17:10, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
Oliver, I agree with what RWRW and Dysk wrote on the moderator talkpage, and I agree that you should be permanently banned from further editing this wiki. The fact that your first instinct in an argument is to go offsite to dig up dirt on that person makes you a negative influence that we can longer tolerate. To be honest, I've been iffy on you ever since you said that you wanted to create an attack article on @Greenrd due to some editing disputes. In short, the enemy of our enemy is not necessarily our friend. Pizza SLICE.gifDuceMoosoliniYour friendly RW dictator moderator 18:03, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
These cases where someone creates an account just to make a coop case for some third person are lame, transparent and a waste of time. If the alleged wronged person wants to come forward and make a case, then do so, otherwise this is trolling. Bongolian (talk) 18:27, 17 May 2019 (UTC)
