Nobody cares about shit you made up in your blog Ken[edit]


Could someone explain how this site is governed? Is it a democracy? If so then how do the elections take place? Is a absolute monarchy or a dictatorship? — Unsigned, by: Interstellar / talk / contribs Interstellar (talk) 14:23, 27 February 2022 (UTC)

This page's protection[edit]

Does anyone oppose removing the current protection from this page? It has been protected indefinitely since 2014, mostly semi protected but has also been fully protected at times. Rabbitseatcarrots (talk) 19:42, 4 March 2023 (UTC)

This sentence[edit]

"Since religious fundamentalism and far-right extremism, which RationalWiki strongly opposes, lean strongly to the right, a slight centre-left bias is to be expected as part of our mission."

I wonder if this could be better written to reflect the fact that RW does criticize certain bad trends from the left-wing, too, but in a way that doesn't both-sides it (because after all it's acknowledging a bias).

We could maybe cite a survey about how likely different political groups are to trust the scientific community? Here's an example of a citation we could use; data is pulled from the General Social SurveyWikipedia which is a massive survey conducted in the US. It also shows a trendline which actually demonstrates Democrats have been at least a little more likely to trust the scientific community than Republicans, a finding consistent throughout the entire period that RationalWiki existed.
