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 2019.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

Purely because redlinks are ugly. Hello!
CP, RW and Me: A Brief History
I was briefly, maybe for a month or so, a user at Conservapedia during the days where it was easier to remain un-banned. purely out of interest rather than any support for the project or the politics of the project, and actually made positive contributions before being permablocked by DeanS for "name/initial" issues. Unable to do anything about it, I followed their advice and did recreate my account, with a name and initial, only to be banned again for the same reason, this time by parodist RodWeathers. Rinse and repeat a few times, and I was fed up, especially when one was blocked for being from the I.P. of a previously blocked user... what a fantastic system! The final time, PJR did unblock me once I appealed to him, but it was too late, for my I.P. had been rangeblocked by TK, which was just lovely, thanks.
Sometime after this I stumbled across RationalWiki, and lurked around, amused by it. After several months of doing so, I decided to create an account to help document, and share in, the many laughs coming from the bastion of ever increasing insanity that is Conservapedia.
