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 2019.

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: $6000Goal: $6000

"Dr"[edit]

I know they're not an actual doctor, but why is there no period in this article? Is it how they write their own "title"? A joke I'm not getting? ikanreed You probably didn't deserve that 20:07, 17 February 2017 (UTC)

The British have a habit of leaving out periods (and there's some discussion about its use here in the Netherlands as well), but the 'Muricans are pretty fond of using them, including this website (which indeed styles itself "Dr. Axe"). I think this should be moved to the correct name.--JorisEnter (talk) 20:18, 17 February 2017 (UTC)


Axe is a tool[edit]

"Dr. Axe" has to be written explicitly, rather than implied by using "he", for my "sharpest tool" joke to be obvious. I'll revert it later. Guvax (talk) 03:08, 18 February 2017 (UTC)

Good point. I didn't see the joke before, it was so subtle. I'll make the change now. Regards, Cosmikdebris (talk) 03:15, 18 February 2017 (UTC)


This is t'internet, where readers have an 8-second attention-span[edit]

So articles have to be condensed to their essence and free from unnecessary repetition of phrases or subject matter.Guvax (talk) 05:02, 18 February 2017 (UTC)
