Longtime reader, occasional editor.

I discovered Rationalwiki in 2009 as an angsty atheist teenager and I've been following the website off and on ever since. Used to edit a bunch in 2010-2012 or so, but I never registered and stopped after a mod got mad at me for accidentally breaking a link. Registered anew in 2017 and have intermittently come by ever since.

As a former edgy atheist, I treasure this website as one of the few places from the days of New Atheism that is 1) still active (RIP FSTDT), and 2) didn't degenerate into an alt-right cesspit (see Atheist YouTube). The GamerGate article here helped recontextualize the movement in real time for me, as someone who was watching it on the sidelines and just thought it was a funny internet event. Coming back here after watching the world go to hell post-2015 feels almost therapeutic at times.


I've always wanted to create an awful mess of these things. Feels like it's still 2007.
