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: $4200Goal: $6000

Talk:Lying by omission

From RationalWiki

This page needs a footnote about fallacious interpretations. Lying by omission is just valid when outstanding claims are made and small letters are missing.

It's lying by omission to say: This bank pays 10% interest And nothing else is stated, omitting the fact, for an instance, those 10% are HYIP and may actually result in a loss.

It's not lying by omission to omit the obvious: I'm selling a bike with 2 wheels. It's irrelevant information, as it was expected for a bike to have 2 wheels already. — Unsigned, by: SirArthur / talk / contribs
