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 !
My name is Simon. I acquired the nickname Spud when I was a tiny tot due to my fondness for mashed potato.
Since 1997, I have been teaching English as a foreign language. I have lived and worked in Turkey, Poland and Japan. Since 2003, I have been teaching children in a small private language school in a village in northern Taiwan.
I have been a RationalWiki editor since September 2011. I was elected to the RationalWiki Foundation Board of Trustees in August 2017. I was elected as an alternate in the moderator election of January 2018 and became a mod in June 2018 after a resignation.
