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 2020.

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

Antisemitism[edit]

To be fair, this page is practically a clogosphere post. Reading it, I'm starting to agree with Atzmon's observation that "an antisemite used to be someone who hates Jews, now it's someone who Jews hate". The Guardian had a piece that dare to be sympathetic to Palestinians? OH MY GODS THE ENTIRE PAPER AND EVERYONE REMOTELY CONNECTED TO IT IS AN ANTISEMITE!!! ADK...I'll abandon your plague! 14:00, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Actually this article is a tad too negative in general isn't it? We're not dealing with Fox News here.--BobSpring is sprung! 15:39, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
Hmm, I didn't really get that impression. The article's complaint isn't that the Guardian ran a pro-Palestine piece, it's that it glossed over Atzmon's more unsavoury views in interviewing him. Balaam (talk) 17:06, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
It's been a while since I was a regular Guardian reader but the "crime" they used to commit was to accept a wide range of views from the left hand side of the political spectrum. As far as I am concerned you will need more than a couple or articles to plead anti-Semitism and, unless the paper has drastically changed it's tone in recent years, I will find it hard to accept. Bad Faith (talk) 17:21, 30 October 2011 (UTC)
It's more that there's an entire site dedicated to "exposing antisemitism in the Guardian's CiF blog"... If you look for things to fuel your persecution complex, you'll find it. ADK...I'll confuse your candlestick! 17:23, 30 October 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, what is it with the fucking Jews constantly accusing us of anti-Semitism? --Let Them Eat Cake (talk) 20:35, 11 July 2016 (UTC)

What's exactly wrong with the Guardian comments section?[edit]

This article says its problematic, but what exactly is wrong with it? — Unsigned, by: 166.170.5.79 / talk / contribs

The random idiots commenting in it maybe? 141.134.75.236 (talk) 20:17, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
What's wrong is that it's on the internet and allows comments. A certain theory explains it. Narky SawtoothNarky.png (Nyarnyar~) 23:52, 1 May 2015 (UTC)

Question[edit]

Should there be a link to Gruinard Island (on the other wiki or otherwise)? Does the island merit a mention on RW Anna Livia (talk) 17:41, 28 May 2019 (UTC)

The hell are you talking about, Anna? Oxyaena Harass 17:48, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
A near anagram - and a place most people know as 'Anthrax Island.'(My references do tend to be to UK-related topics.) Anna Livia (talk) 17:54, 28 May 2019 (UTC)
