Rotten Websites Wiki[edit]

Seems like RationalWiki found there's a page about you guys in RRW wiki. Any reason to debunk it? Anyone? Mar9122 (talk) 12:52, 29 March 2019 (UTC)

Full on debunking haters is an infinite well of wasted time, you end up debunking their response to your debunking of their response to your debunking. It's mostly best to stick to our mission and just list the people who don't like us and why, then ignore them. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 16:54, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
I may need another Bingo card after looking at our entry. It's... cute. Lots of right-wing and far right buzzwords and dog whistles. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 17:40, 29 March 2019 (UTC)
Another amusing feature is their need for "balanced articles" and disdain for the tone of our articles all the while emphasizing how serious they are in comparison to us. Overall their article made me laugh. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:20, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
As in like charity is a guilt reduction? Mar9122 (talk) 08:01, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
If nothing is done to address the cause that the charity brings attention to, then yes, it is mere motions. Let's take starving children, the example in the article. If, all I do is donate money to a charity, then, I am merely assuaging my own guilt, not helping end the problem. A better model, would be to actually address the root of the problem (poverty, overpopulation, sex education, raising the minim wage, etc), thus making the charity redundant. Then repeat as needed with each issue. The Charity article actually mentions this, but I suppose you either didn't read that far or are being redunctionist to the point of misrepresenting the article. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:26, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Looks like Dysklyver, who I spoke to him on Meta Miraheze, saved the day. My mission is complete. lol Mar9122 (talk) 08:57, 30 March 2019 (UTC)
@Mar9122 I would probably have removed it, if you know, you'd actually asked me to. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 14:51, 30 March 2019 (UTC)

Should the "Mohamed El Nashi" section be removed?[edit]

After translating his website with an extension, it appears as if he never mentions RationalWiki anywhere; In fact, he may be actually mad at Wikipedia, not at us! Here is the translation, by the way:

Many officials in the Israeli media are stunned by the revolution of public opinion, especially among young people in Europe and America against Israel. What happened? The world believed them for at least half a century, and the history written by Israel was true, and the documented facts on the side of the Arabs lied. What happened? Relatively brief period in public opinion?.

I think that the coup came through the revolution that took place in the means of communication and the ease of obtaining information from the Internet, including historical information, whether it was contemporary history or ancient history, not to mention the scientific facts in all branches of knowledge. From here, a war against falsification of history, especially the history of Zionist colonialism, began. in the region.

In several conferences, the most recent of which was the recent Arab Thought Conference in Kuwait City, I strongly noted the seriousness of the information that is marketed through an electronic dictionary that has become famous under the name Wikipedia, which the intellectual, the scholar and the Arab reader should know that the information in the Wikipedia dictionary is not documented and any intruder from abroad can change the information. And manipulate it to the point of outrageous fraud without any real sergeant. After that, try to complain, and you will enter endless corridors and basements for fairness. There is a lot of good and correct information found in Wikipedia, but with regard to the history of Palestine or Islam or many Arab scholars, and that is the national leaders of the liberation movements in the Arab and Islamic world, especially modern history, there are serious inaccuracies, but there are campaigns I am frantic for forgery by professionals for cybercrime and their agents in the Arab world and Egypt in particular. I want to add my humble voice to the necessity of striking with an iron fist against Internet crimes, falsifying history, using various websites for slander, public insults, and disruption of order and security in this country.

I also warn university students and young researchers against relying on Wikipedia as a source of information, and there is something worse than it. Sometimes, for a small payment, as well as to market the goods through advertisements on the same page where you give the suspicious information.
