Argument # 2: “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence.” Says: "there are nevertheless 7 problems with it to keep in mind". Err... number 2's missing, or at least not numbered. Shum mishtake shurely? This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 05:02, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Forum topic: BLASPHEMY: taking the name of the GOAT in vain. - note, the author compares "believers" to sheep - Freudian slip? This message brought to you by: Toastrespondand honey 05:30, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
"the believers - the 'sheep' - and the non-believers - the 'goats'" No, just her ESP in full force. Or... ħumanUser talk:Human 05:38, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Am I the only one who wasted half an hour on that homeopathy site just playing with the mouse following thingy? Javasca₧ No comment 01:02, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

I "ran" it for a minute or so to see what the algorithm was. Interesting that a website would provide an irritating "game" that utterly distracts visitors from the content. I forget what the site was about or if there were any links, I was too busy herding blue dots. ħumanUser talk:Human 03:10, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

minor edit war[edit]

Fifth H'man, calling "Winston Wu" a schizophrenic twice in the article is really lame. And let's use the name he uses for himself, k? ħumanUser talk:Human 05:20, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

Hell I am using the fucking kid's gloves so far...the guy abandoned his kids, exploits women in third world countries, and is in general a total womanizing, fraudulent twit. Seriously look at this shit. Fifth Horseman 05:28, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
Pffffft what a lame edit war - even for a minor one. Someone fuck the other guy up. I'll leave you guys to it. I have a slinky pillow-fight to attend to. Ace McWickedModel 500 05:32, 15 September 2009 (UTC)
I am laughing too hard at the fact that the best the woo community can muster is a schizophrenic pimp hiding in the Philippines because of the cheap prostitutes and the ability to avoid being forced to support his child and wife. I am sure once the smoke clears I can fight a proper battle. Fifth Horseman 05:35, 15 September 2009 (UTC)

There Are No Rebuttals[edit]

This seems like a simple attack. There are no refutations or anything here as well.

  1. "1.Analyzing and refuting pseudoscience and the anti-science movement."

Analyzing by a loose definition, maybe. Mostly ad hominem. No refutations whatsoever.

  1. "2.Documenting the full range of crank ideas."

Very vague on their crank ideas.

  1. "3.Explorations of authoritarianism and fundamentalism."

Does not apply.

  1. "4.Analysis and criticism of how these subjects are handled in the media."

Isn't the focus of the article, so not that important here.

I may sound like somebody simply complaining, but why is this not fixed? This fuels their positions on "Pseudoskeptics". I am not very familiar with the site (SCEPCOP) so it would be best if somebody else did this, somebody who is more knowledgeable on them. Kosterortiizbrock (talk) 04:29, 26 August 2015 (UTC)
