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: $3900Goal: $6000

Historical Examples[edit]

Needed here. I would mentioned the Bush family and the Adams family in the US, the Trudeau family in Canada, and the Park family in South Korea, for example.Kentuckyball (talk) 13:08, 23 October 2015 (UTC)

Time for a spinoff?[edit]

Shouldn't the Spoils system be spunoff into an article by itself, perhaps titled patronage or spoils system? That section alone is already more than half the article. And in a sense, the spoils system is quite opposite of nepotism, as jobs went to probably 99.9% of people were not related to a candidate.nobsGary Johnson for Rehab! 20:55, 3 September 2016 (UTC)

Seems fine but the article will become a bigger stub; we could merge nepotism president with nepotism in order to fix that issue, though.--Owlman (talk) (mail) 23:49, 3 September 2016 (UTC)
