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.

Indeed. And as you seem to have Pb's ear, perhaps you should gently dissuade him from his increasingly paranoid style. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 00:57, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, sure. I think everyone's out to get me. Hah. Pbfreespace (talk) 01:22, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
What I think Helena is referring to is the "they obviously created a sleeper to vote in the coop" sorta thing. I mean, there's obviously plenty other reasons why someone might have some socks lying around. 142.124.55.236 (talk) 01:32, 4 June 42016 AQD (UTC)
Exactly, 142. Though I cannot seem to recall why I have this sock lying around... The Absent-minded Hero (talk) 01:34, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Good work, the both of you. Pb, it's a shame you weren't around to watch the Conservapedia sysops descending into their own private hell of hair-trigger hyper-vigilance, unable to see anything other than potential enemies and conspiracies in unfamiliar voices. I imagine, if you had been, you wouldn't be so keen to follow them down that particular rabbit hole. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 01:52, 4 June 2016 (UTC)
Did somebody call for a sock party at RationalWiki? Cheers! We should all grab a bottle of whiskey and some 40s and head over to the Weeping Lion and see if that wreck is still standing in some form. Foster the Tipsy (talk) 02:07, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Seriously[edit]

What's your fucking problem? Do you get your fucking rocks off being such a shit? You never even actually address the content of my arguments, you resort to blithe snark instead. Clearly you can't respond with anything of substance, so you have to substitute it with mockery instead. Sad. Oxyaena Harass 22:01, 22 January 2020 (UTC)

For old times sake I thought I would have a gander at what you guys are talking about and Oxy, you are being just as much of an asshole so you could take the advice you are spitting out to others also - are you ot old enough to handle a little sarcasm? Why don't you both get out of the sandpit and be adults. AceModerator 01:48, 23 January 2020 (UTC)

Bless your heart. You're really winning at this moderation business today, aren't you? Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 17:48, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
This Wiki has a fucking problem on the Salon Bar at least when pro Bernie Bro-drama baiting is allowed (like "Bye Warren" followed by snark) and anti-Bernie Bro drama baiting is immediately troll-collapsed by a fucking moderator for no real fucking reason. Either allow all snark, allow none, or change the fucking name of this Wiki from RationalWiki to DirtbagLeft Wiki. 165.225.32.116 (talk) 17:58, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
It's just a tiresome rerun of 2016. Then as now, it'll mostly subside once Bernie starts campaigning for Biden. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 18:02, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 18:21, 11 March 2020 (UTC)

Yep, you don't know. Thanks for the next 10 years of republican rule. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 18:27, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
I make no promises for Biden, but he has a viable path to 270 through the suburbs, college graduates, and women in general, and he puts the Senate in play. Which is precisely why he scares the real "right wing assholes" in the GOP so much. Bernie would have been annihilated in the general, and put the 2018 House gains at considerable risk. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 18:48, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
I make the absolute promise that a candidate running on nothing but who they're not never, ever wins a presidential election. It's as true with Hillary or Kerry against republicans as it was with Landon or Lilkie against FDR. Biden has no reason he's given for any human being in this country to vote for him besides the vague idea that he will beat the incumbent. There's no sagery or poll reading(though oh god those don't help his case) to it. Biden is electoral doom. The only way he could possibly pull up on that crashing plane hard enough was a sudden post DNC change of tone, and frankly he lacks the charisma to do it.
You're going to lose to a historically unpopular president, presiding over a disastrous economic crash, possibly with an active pandemic that specifically kills his base, and still somehow lose. It's pretty nuts.
It's not that Sanders was necessarily offering the best or correct things to voters, but that he was offering things at all that was the difference that made him have a fractional chance of winning. ikanreed 🐐Bleat at me 19:09, 11 March 2020 (UTC)
Trump and the GOP machine think otherwise, else they wouldn't have gone to the mat over the batshit Shokin smear attempt. They had the time and resources to wargame the head-to-heads beforehand, so presumably they judged it was worth the political blood and treasure, and permanently shredding their own reputations in the process.
Looking at how quickly the Dem primary field consolidated, it's reasonable to suppose the DNC's head-to-head numbers say exactly the same thing. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 02:37, 12 March 2020 (UTC)

Thank you[edit]

For changing your phrasing. I had not noticed this initially, but after going through the record to review the discussion, I did. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 02:45, 30 June 2020 (UTC)

And, I would like to offer an apology for my irritable behavior, as well as not noticing the change in question sooner. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 02:47, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
@GrammarCommie No worries. We've all got a bad day in us. While we're being grown-ups, it was dumb of me to lead with a gratuitous insult. However much I felt you deserved a jab for going off on the BoN, that "weapons-grade" crack was never going to do anything other than provoke you further. Sorry, man. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 21:51, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
No worries, aside from the "special" comment I didn't take anything too personally. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 22:39, 30 June 2020 (UTC)
Thank you for being civil. Bongolian (talk) 01:46, 1 July 2020 (UTC)
Yeah, it's all good. I'm sorry if I contributed to any sort of escalation too, by the way, at the time, I still was doubting about your ability to engage with me without any insults being thrown and being afraid about it, Helena Bonham Carter. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:59, 1 July 2020 (UTC)

Maxwell[edit]

If you'd read the article you'd have seen the following: "According to an LD-1 Disclosure Form filed with the Clerk of the House of Representatives and the Secretary of the Senate, J M Burkman and Associates—a lobbying firm owned by far-right activist Jack Burkman and co-run by Wohl—claims to have been hired by “Granite Realty [sic] LLC” in order to lobby on “[i]ssues relating to US DOJ, Senate Judiciary, [and the] House Judiciary.”

You don't file papers with Congress if you're making stuff up.

I'm putting the WIGO back. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 19:04, 21 July 2020 (UTC)

@RoundeTheeHorne This is JFW we're talking about, man. Jacob Fucking Wohl. Of course this is made up. The idea that anyone with a) serious money, and b) anything significant at stake, would hire this gimp is off-the-fucking-chart ridiculous. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 20:12, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
I mean it's possible that she's desperate. Although if that's true, one wonders why she isn't bankrolling O'Keefe instead of the shittier ripoff version. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 21:14, 21 July 2020 (UTC)
There's "desperate", and then there's hiring the world's most comically inept political operative. If she's got the money to afford a legal team like this, she's got the money to afford dirty tricksters who - and work with me here - might actually be capable of pulling off dirty tricks without beclowning themselves.
More to the point, though, is Wohl's established track record of mindbendingly stupid attention seeking via trying to insert himself into big news stories of the day. Occam's razor ftw. Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 00:01, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
I haven't been following this specific case too closely, and yes, I agree that it is nothing short of ridiculous to imagine someone with that many connections hiring Wohl of all people. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 00:14, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Glad to hear it. Is there any good reason, then, why WIGO World should be currently lending some measure of credence to this guff? Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 00:19, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
I think at the *very* least we need to wait for more sources before a WIGO is visible (so hiding the source as you did is fine). At this point, per Google News it appears that the only sources reporting this are: A) The Daily Heil Mail, who are permabanned from The Other Wiki for good reason; B) the Law And Crime source -- this is a good source, but the article is skeptical of the truthfulness; C) a website called "Benzinga" which seems a bit like a sketchy aggregator (they also are skeptical of the truthfulness); and D) The Daily Dot, a decent source which flat out called bullshit. Most of the media has stopped giving a shit about the "boy that cried wolf" a long time ago. Soundwave106 (talk) 03:08, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Last time I checked "I don't believe it's real" is not a basis for refuting something. Yes, Wohl is a troll. Until you have proof that this is a stunt, actual media reporting takes precedence. Simple as that. Prove he's trolling, an the WIGO can go down. Until then, it's news and it stays. Facts don't care about how you feel. WIGO is going back up. RoundeTheeHorne (talk) 03:51, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
Great stuff. The overwhelming balance of probabilities called btw. They're as baffled as I am that you've chosen to stick your cock in this particular blender of epic fail. What you got for an encore, stumpy? Helena Bonham Carter (talk) 12:54, 22 July 2020 (UTC)
I read the article and weighed in on the WIGO talkpage. All parties involved that want to continue, please take it there. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 13:04, 22 July 2020 (UTC)

I'm bored so I thought I'd ask a question[edit]

What are your thoughts on Existentialism? ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 03:45, 23 September 2020 (UTC)

I get kind of repelled by the idea that meaning must be self-constructed and the subjectivity trap that entails. I don't pretend to have anything particularly well thought out to offer you instead, but this line from Bertrand Russell has always stuck with me: "I cannot see how to refute the arguments for the subjectivity of ethical values, but I find myself incapable of believing that all that is wrong with wanton cruelty is that I don't like it."
