RationalWiki's 2020 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 2021.

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 fake biography

Recently created, I found it amusing. Contains total misinformation about RationalWiki.Tobias (talk) 14:55, 28 April 2019 (UTC)

Negativity

I actually met Rome (online) and he was pretty nice and civil, I really don't understand the mockery that's being directed at him. Fowler (talk) 08:24, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

He's a concern troll. Mockery is the best response to concern trolls. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:16, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
Its a little hard to actually support mockery of a person when you actually meet them. Fowler (talk) 13:04, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
Let me point out that he could have been nice to you and a dishonest concern troll. These positions are not mutually exclusive. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 13:09, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
I know, but it still feels good when someone is nice to you, troll or not. Fowler (talk) 13:11, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
I remember once meeting a lovely person, nice to their dog and everything. Later turned out they were associated with the terrorist group ETA.Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 13:41, 11 August 2020 (UTC)

I live in the Basque Country so it's not really that remarkable. :-) Bob"Life is short and (insert adjective)" 14:56, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
Fowler's account is only a few weeks old. I suspect his account is a sock-puppet of Rome Viharo or somebody associated with him maybe his friend Abd Lomax in an attempt to get the page deleted, check the article and talk-page history, he created hundreds of socks in the past. Viharo is an obscure figure these days, his claim to 'fame' was his troll website wikipediawehaveaproblem but it was suspended by GoDaddy for doxxing users. Somebody wouldn't just meet Rome randomly online, sign up to RW and mention this on his talk-page. So hello Rome or someone who has known him a long time. The RationalWiki is not coming down! Sorry. Johns (talk) 21:10, 11 August 2020 (UTC)
what the fuck are you talking about (rv has a YouTube account btw) Fowler (talk) 06:48, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
Dear Fowler. If you want to understand the mockery directed at Rome Viharo and his BFFs, try checking out the archives for this talk page. The mere fact that this archive is four pages long is an indication of the problem. ScepticWombat (talk) 09:02, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
Lmao bffs Fowler (talk) 10:23, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
are you not even going to attempt an apology @Johns? Fowler (talk) 12:58, 12 August 2020 (UTC)
