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!

Donations so far: $3500Goal: $3500

Possibly bump up?

"ZOG"[edit]

Wait, isn't that a term favored by the antisemitic/white power crowd? "Zionist Occupation Group" or something? P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 14:14, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Heh, I vaguely knew it was not particularly complimentary but it seemed like a useful abbreviation. I hope it doesn't come over as anti-semitic though, otherwise feel free to replace the offending bits. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 14:18, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, man, that's gonna have to go -- unless, unless the company uses that term in their own literature. If that's the case, write a sentence pointing out the obvious problem with that, but it in the lead, and then run with it. P-FosterCan't we talk about this, baby?Moderator 14:27, 13 July 2011 (UTC)
OK, thanks for fixing that up for me. The abbr was just easier when I was typing it up on the plane. Redchuck.gif ГенгисIs the Pope a Catholic?Moderator 15:27, 13 July 2011 (UTC)

Financial Times series[edit]

Jamie Powell at Financial Times FT Alphaville has an entire ongoing series of detailed coverage of this particular bizarre stupidity: "Zion Oil: Living On A Prayer" [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] - readable with free login. Lots of follow-the-money - David Gerard (talk) 12:00, 3 August 2018 (UTC)
