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: $720Goal: $3500

archiving the bar[edit]

I just wanted to let you know that I have reinstated an archive bot in the bar, which means that it's on automatic Archiving again. Check User:Inferno Bot. The setup for the bar is threads older than 5 days being archived, with automatic rollover when the archive page reaches 250k bytes. That means there is no need to manually archive again. Posting this since I noticed you manually archived the coop last night. Sirius (dog star) 09:08, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

Noted, thanks. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 16:56, 27 June 2020 (UTC)

do not be an asshole[edit]

I see you reverted some edits not nice bugger off — Unsigned, by: Raghavway / talk / contribs

Yes, but do you understand why they're reverted? --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:30, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
@Raghavway Nice way to be civil. Are you nine years old? —cosmikdebris talk stalk 03:44, 3 July 2020 (UTC)

well sometimes some people just understand the language they understand, no? User:Raghavway/sig 9:17, 3 July 2020 (IST)

For bad work[edit]

Edits to IQ why? User:Raghavway/sig 9:24, 3 July 2020 (IST)

@Raghavway What are you talking about? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:55, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
The edits in question were poor quality opinions and so I reverted them. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 03:59, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
How so sire? It was plain truth User:Raghavway/sig 9:35, 3 July 2020 (IST)
"The use of IQ as a measure for intelligence enjoys widespread white supramacists incels." Please provide a citation for this statement. "IQ is basically a shining example of 'Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth'" Your opinion which is not appropriate for the article. If you're going to make statements like that, for Bob's sake, please provide some context. Out of the blue opinions like this make the article (and you) look stupid. And please, if you're going to edit articles here, please use the preview button, use proper grammar, and fix simple mistakes like spelling errors and missing periods. I repeat, are you nine years old? —cosmikdebris talk stalk 04:14, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
for "Bob's sake" love being racist, right?
Sorry to be such a spoiler but IQ is a lie
well yeah grammatically they are incorrect just remove the first one but keep "IQ is basically a shining example of 'Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes :::::the truth" because it just is, or are you one those who believes that IQ is a measure of intelligence?
I am 14 btw User:Raghavway
@Cosmikdebris "The use of IQ as a measure for intelligence enjoys widespread white supramacists incels." <- I don't know about the "incel" part but white supremacists do use IQ as a scientific-looking sheen to justify being a white supremacist. It's a really big part of the wiki: hereditarianism which is on our extensive coverage of racialism. Also, please try to keep the insults on stupidity and lack of proper grammar and spelling to a minimum, I suspect Raghavway doesn't have English as a first language, so please be extra patient with this user and fix any mistakes that are made. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 04:45, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
@LeftyGreenMario It's really hard to be civil when some random asshole leaves a note on my talk page calling me an asshole and telling me to "bugger off." —cosmikdebris talk stalk 14:49, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
@Cosmikdebris Well, truth is a bit harder to digest, @LeftyGreenMario please revert the edits —Raghavway 14:49, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
Please stay away from my talk page. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 17:44, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah I already told this person to be nice. If they do continue that behavior, then I'll take more action. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 18:46, 3 July 2020 (UTC)
Okay Sorry, I'll be nice but why are you reverting all my edits? I know I did some grammar mistakes and I'll be extra careful next time User:Raghavway/sig 9:10, 4 July 2020 (IST)
Don't be on this talk page. Thank you. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 03:42, 4 July 2020 (UTC)

Board of Trustees election[edit]

It would be great if you could be a returning officer / vote counter for the 2020 trustees election, it's STV same as the mod elections last year. — Z 14:10, 5 July 2020 (UTC)

@Ze I'll be happy to coordinate the foundation election. I have the tools set up and ready to go. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 15:19, 5 July 2020 (UTC)
Epic. — Z 17:01, 5 July 2020 (UTC)


You've been nominated to the RationalMedia Foundation election. Please accept or decline; if you accept, you may wish to campaign. — Bongolian (talk) 22:27, 6 July 2020 (UTC)


Hello Cosmikdebris, why did you revert my edit to Noah (film)? I like your name by the way! TheFonz (talk) 09:10, 14 July 2020 (UTC)

Great Link[edit]

If 'KKK and BLM are the same' is your idea of thoughtful and well-informed, I think you should finish up school first. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 02:46, 15 July 2020 (UTC)
Can’t believe the Founders control the entire Dominion while living in a shitty JBP subreddit (talk) 06:17, 15 July 2020 (UTC)

Thanks for dealing with TheFonz[edit]

I was at work and there's only so much I can manage with my cell phone during coffee breaks, so I appreciate you taking care of it. Really don't want to deal with his nonsense anyway while I'm still learning the ropes.Coigreach (talk) 20:35, 16 July 2020 (UTC)

Regarding the Face masks draft article...[edit]

Is it safe to be released from draft phase? If not, what should be added more? The Sqrt-1 talk stalk 12:29, 2 August 2020 (UTC)

@Sqrt-1 I think it's ready, so I'm going to move it over with some minor edits. Thanks, —cosmikdebris talk stalk 16:07, 2 August 2020 (UTC)


Can I be Autopatrolled, please? Fowler (talk) 13:33, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

Sure. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 13:36, 18 August 2020 (UTC)
Gee thanks! Fowler (talk) 13:37, 18 August 2020 (UTC)

RationalWeb Update[edit]

Hey! I heard you have perms to manage RationalWeb.org. RationalWeb announcements could use a new blogpost about the 2020 Board of Trustees election. Thanks! The FCP Foundation (talk/stalk) 19:09, 5 September 2020 (UTC)

@FuzzyCatPotato Done. Here's the updated announcement. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 20:43, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@Cosmikdebris Thanks! As an aside, would you like to be included in the RMF board meetings (since you have some technical power/expertise)? (Gonna be honest: They're boring and low-utility.) FuzzyCatPotato (talk) 21:00, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@FuzzyCatPotato Sure, I'd be glad to help in any way I can. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 21:00, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
@Cosmikdebris Great! If you [1] email me (talkpage or hairyfelinetuber [at] gmail [dot] com) or [2] DM me on Discord (fcp#1356), I can get your private contact details. Thanks! FuzzyCatPotato (talk) 23:36, 5 September 2020 (UTC)
Done. —cosmikdebris talk stalk 23:45, 5 September 2020 (UTC)


It's odd timing that someone on Twitter was bragging about a vandalized page right after HairlessCat edited said page, and judging from your message to his talk page, he has an obsession with bad edits on said page. Have fun with that obvious troll account,cheers
