Rationale[edit]

I created this page because:

  1. I found the Encyclopedia of American Loons at about the same time that I found RationalWiki.
  2. The EAL has a level of snarkiness that amused me. It's obviously written either by an editor of RW, or someone who's read quite of bit of it.
  3. As a blog, the organization of EAL is not that great. If one suspects that someone's there, one can do a search, but it's not so good for browsing. Also, if the blog disappears for some reason, it would be hard to reconstruct via archive.org. This index makes it an easier task to reconstruct it goes away.
  4. This page may serve as a source for either expanding existing RW pages are creating new ones.

Bongolian, why did you add what appears to be vandalism to this page on November 28, 2021? I reverted it, but I don't understand why you put it there? FairDinkum (talk) 09:42, 3 December 2022 (UTC)
The text you removed has been added in this revision almost 4 years ago. With the removal of the striked out: "some <s>fan</s> hate mail", the removal of the words: "like this beauty:", the change from cquote to Blockquote, the addition of a left aligned TOC, with the additional bug of removing all indentations from the text on its right side, this quote is no longer recognizable as originally intended. What could help in this case would be a horizontal TOC as with the wikipedia template "Compact ToC". -- blobcat (°U°) 13:46, 3 December 2022 (UTC)
