RationalWiki's 2018 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 seeing this today donates $5, we will meet our goal for 2018.

Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with PayPal Logo.png!

Rome Viharo attacking fuzzycatpotato and Rationalwiki trust

Rationalwiki drinking games = viharo lies all over again. (talk) 20:54, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Fun fact: That article is ~1800 words. His article is ~2000 words. Mr. Farley's quote fits so damn well. αδελφός ΓυζζγςατΡοτατο (talk/stalk) 21:52, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
I do like the cartoon, though. Spud (talk)
Oddly enough, we have an article: Linking to authority. Any thoughts on better names? Sir ℱ℧ℤℤϒℂᗩℑᑭƠℑᗩℑƠ (talk/stalk) 05:09, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

@BoN, I wouldn't link to his blog unless absolutely necessary, it contains doxing. Christopher (talk) 14:42, 26 June 2017 (UTC)

I will be running a new article exposing the bullying and hand-waving tactics of David Gerard and Rationalwiki on my website Wikipedia We have a Problem soon. Please look out for it. 23canaries (talk) 06:01, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

I look forward to ignoring your shitty opinion. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 14:45, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Seeing as this is Rome Viharo, who's been blocked from the site, shouldn't this have been removed? Christopher (talk) 15:02, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Meh? ikanreed also engaged in handwaving tactics 15:09, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
A TV deal is virtually guaranteed after an exposé like this. Maybe a film, too. David Gerard Sucks Dog Dicks: The Rome Viharo Story (talk) 16:34, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Have fun--Spoony (talk) 17:42, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Yeah, right. Why don't you (RV) get away from everything with Internet access for some days and go elsewhere to enjoy Nature?. The Milky Way is very beautiful this epoch of the year. Panzerfaust (talk) 22:51, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
This should be interesting. Bet that article will be full of pure Trump Shit. --Rationalzombie94 (talk) 01:00, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Unlock request

If you unlock the Rome Viharo article, I can add some stuff. (talk) 19:45, 18 July 2017 (UTC)

If youpropose the stuff you'd like to add on the talk page, perhaps a sysop could add it for you. Or you could get an account, behave for a few days with good edits, get made a sysop and add it yourself. BicyclewheelToxic mowse.gif 19:52, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
Talk page is also locked. Both the main page an talk got locked for about 6 months since Viharo kept appearing on sockpuppets, either whining or spamming his article talk page, or trying to remove content. However, there's lots of information that can be now put on his article. (talk) 22:13, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
I havent been on this site too consistently, why is this Rome Viharo so obsessed with this site?--Spoony (talk) 23:04, 18 July 2017 (UTC)
I think you'd have to ask him that. He just can't stand it that someone said something about him that he didn't like. BicyclewheelToxic mowse.gif 04:17, 19 July 2017 (UTC)
I dunno why he complains. Searching for someone's publicly available tracks elsewhere and posting them on a web page is not illegal, if he/she's so dumb not to cover them (ie: uploading a picture of him/her, using the same nick... when you piss off people, that will happen sooner or later) (Conservapedia sysops anyone?).

Bonafide Wikipedian's opinion of Gerard

He is a piece of slime who brought same to the project by abusing his checkuser rights. Remember that next time someone suggests bringing checkuser to Rational-Wiki. Anti-Science Wikipedian (talk) 22:04, 19 July 2017 (UTC)

Right...So, what's your Wikipedia name? Just so we can check if you are really "bonafide." For instance, both your user pages are redlinks, and I'm not sure that a "bonafide Wikipedian" comes onto RW without linking to their account. RoninMacbeth (talk) 03:46, 20 July 2017 (UTC)

Bonafide Wikipedia's opinion of Gerard (2)

You should totally buy his great book on Bitcoin and blockchains!! because he can't reasonably shill it on the RW Twitter or FB cos it's a massive COI. So tell all your friends about it!!

(yeah this is what i've been doing since late 2016. Blame Phil Sandifer.) - David Gerard (talk) 00:24, 22 July 2017 (UTC)


Viharo says the above 23canaries account isn't his on twitter. Of course, he's probably lying since he has a history of creating fake accounts to impersonate/attack himself so he claim victim. If he didn't create these there would be no 'drama' for him to write on his website. (talk) 19:55, 25 July 2017 (UTC)

Rome Viharo

Viharo is using a number of sock accounts with "heyguy" in the title. He also posts on sock accounts with the name "Ben Steigmann" and "Krom". His agenda is to disrupt Rationalwiki and post misinformation. He should be banned. (talk) 16:29, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

"Krom" isn't RV. However Rome Viharo is for certain the "heyguy" socks. And note whenever he shows up on socks there is always a load of new accounts with odd names, IPs, impersonations and drama on talk-pages. That's one of the reasons why his RationalWiki article describes him as a troll. (talk) 16:42, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
Nope - you're lying again. Heyguy (talk) 16:50, 25 August 2017 (UTC)
You have an article here Rome Viharo which documents your bannings and internet abuse, so why should we trust your word? As 86 says you are a proven troll. Are you trying to claim otherwise? (talk) 16:52, 25 August 2017 (UTC)

Another fake legal threat by Rome Viharo

Since you have blacklisted my website, please see http://archive.is/3r8ac RV (talk) 00:31, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

At first, I was tempted to think that the title was a joke, referring to the FBI Incident, but maybe not. It's probably still a bluff thoughKazitor, pending 00:47, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Hi, please view my website via the link. I've documented harassment by RationalWiki sysops for years that I also discuss on camera: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qo57RXZrP_c enough is enough - I have now contacted the FBI about the admins of this disgusting website.RV (talk) 00:53, 26 September 2017 (UTC)

Troll, follow the guidelines outlined in Talk:Rome Viharo. --It's-a me, LeftyGreenMario! 03:32, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Rome has asked me to let you guys know that the "RV" account is an impersonation and not him. That account has been making legal threats pretending to be from Rome. You guys have a major troll problem on this wiki. Laird (talk) 07:40, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
You have been diagnosed with schizophrenia, so we should not believe everything you say without skepticism! (talk) 07:52, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
Hence why his own site mentions an FBI report. Yeah, whatever. —Kazitor, pending 09:10, 26 September 2017 (UTC)
