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: $3500Goal: $3500

How many days left until TK is unblocked?[edit]

Will somebody tell me before deleting this page? DoggedamesP 00:01, 21 February 2008 (EST)

His block expires March 10th. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 00:07, 21 February 2008 (EST)
That's pretty soon. I can't wait. DoggedamesP
A nine-day late birthday present for Ames. Fuckin awesome. Of course his next block in sequence is 143 days...-αmεσ (tailor) 00:14, 21 February 2008 (EST)
Don't worry Ames. I will make sure he doesn't get blocked again. Even if I have to change policy here (and you know I can). DoggedamesP 00:16, 21 February 2008 (EST)
Why anyone would feel devotion to a hate-filled little terrier that poops on your carpet is beyond me. Of course I speak in metaphor. Or do I?-αmεσ (tailor) 00:19, 21 February 2008 (EST)
Ames, Ames, Ames. If he said that he would have been blocked. Thats an example of the double standard that led to his first block. And I simply believe in standing up for the oppressed. DoggedamesP 00:22, 21 February 2008 (EST)
For a demonstration of my power on this wiki, I would like all of you to look at AmesG's block log. Thats right, I pretty much blocked him for 8 hours without having blocking rigths.
The End

What did I miss?[edit]

It looks like there has been an "incident" on my favorite wiki. Would someone please use this page to tell me what happened before deleting it? DoggedamesP 19:50, 20 February 2008 (EST)

Kip the Dip emigrated here from Uncyclopedia. SusanG made a snarky edit on a "debate" subpage he had set up. Later, Kip took a look around and, being religiously inclined, decided he wasn't "ready yet" to tussle with the atheists here. AKjeldson asked Kip if Susan's snarky edit was among his reasons for leaving so soon. Kip said yes. AKjeldson then blocked SusanG for nine hours. Susan, incensed at the excessive block, then announced she was leaving permanently. And thus continued the chain reaction of overreactions and harsh words. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:02, 20 February 2008 (EST)
You had to have been there to appreciate the zeitgeist, but at the time I was afraid that this would break the community beyond repair. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:04, 20 February 2008 (EST)
Headless Chicken Mode happened. --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 20:07, 20 February 2008 (EST)
What? I could care less about Uncyclopedia users and user:SusanG. What I meant was did GodlessLiberal leave? DoggedamesP 20:10, 20 February 2008 (EST)
lol! You should've asked that. Does that even qualify as an "incident"? --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:12, 20 February 2008 (EST)
Its a tradgedy. DoggedamesP 20:13, 20 February 2008 (EST)
i for one was glad to finally get the straight dope on the Kip the Dip episode...As for the late, lamented Godless Liberal, it's all on his talk page, and a bit on the main page...PFoster 20:14, 20 February 2008 (EST)
So, did User:SusanG leave? DoggedamesP 20:19, 20 February 2008 (EST)
She came back, thank God. ; ) --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:25, 20 February 2008 (EST)
I thought you were an atheist... DoggedamesP 20:26, 20 February 2008 (EST)
I am. Hence the wink. And my turns-of-phrase are rather limited without referencing God. Also, it was to tweak fellow atheist Susan. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 20:31, 20 February 2008 (EST)
Wink? I thought that was secret code. DoggedamesP 20:33, 20 February 2008 (EST)
"Denne sætning er ikke skrevet i hemmelig kode. Eller er den?" --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 20:35, 20 February 2008 (EST)


Atheist or not, there are still times when "Thank God or "Oh My God" are acceptable, if not desirable..PFoster 20:34, 20 February 2008 (EST)

Especially when THIS IS YOUR GOD.--JeєvsYour signature gave me epilepsy... 20:39, 20 February 2008 (EST)
Um, actually, I was thinking something more along the lines of this. PFoster 20:44, 20 February 2008 (EST)
You were thinking about that image? Must be some Canadian thing... DoggedamesP 20:56, 20 February 2008 (EST)
That image STILL makes me say "My GOD.!!!" PFoster 21:24, 20 February 2008 (EST)
Which one? The one above or that geek one? DoggedamesP 21:27, 20 February 2008 (EST)
No, silly. God is in the sparkles. --Star of David.png Radioactive afikomen Please ignore all my awful pre-2014 comments. 21:00, 20 February 2008 (EST)
