RationalWiki's 2019 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 2020.

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: $2200Goal: $3000

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! You did a good job fighting Ed, and you'll win the war in the long run.-αmεσ (tinker) 14:40, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

For great justice! --AKjeldsenGodspeed! 14:43, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
Thanks a bunch to both of you. I have a lot of catching up to do, I think. I actually received a few invites (in various forms), and I did check this place out briefly when the first links popped up, but I always figured that I'd rather stay in the background and try to do some good and give Conservapedia a chance. When I saw the Main Page item, I overruled my "IT'S A TRAP! =O" instinct... and look where it got me. BAH.
I hope I'll relax enough in the remaining time so I don't get infi-blocked for driving Ed's face into the ground or something. --Jenkins 14:46, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
Hello and welcome. Saw you were fighting for the monks on the talk page. Seems to be a bit worse than usual at the moment.--Bob's your uncle 14:52, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Damn! For the first time I'm actually really cross! Well, at least I've given them a piece of my mind. Great work against Ed, though - he really is poisonous. -- מְתֻרְגְּמָן וִיקִי שְׁלֹום!

Now you're here, have you got a writing plan? Genghis Khant 15:40, 26 September 2007 (EDT)
*screams and runs in circles* --Jenkins 15:51, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Welcome to the jungle, boy! You're gonna die!

JK, although I'd pay a sysop to change the Cp welcome template to say that.--Offeep 17:50, 26 September 2007 (EDT)

Man, Ed is such a dick! I knew you couldn't last there; people with half a brain never do. Of course, you haven't been banned by common use of the word, but I've noticed users seldom come back after a week block. Do you have any intention to? Any substantial editing here will likely turn the block into infinite/5 years. That's what I was banned for, nothing specific, just generally being part of this site. Makes a mockery of their "we don't ban people for what they write elsewhere" rule, although all their rules are violated more often Andy's homeschool students (HA HA, I make pedophile joke! Funny, no?). Anyway have fun here. This is clearly where you belong. DickTurpis 09:31, 1 October 2007 (EDT)

Jesus H. Christ![edit]

Blashpemies aside, I can't believe it! I never welcomed you! I totally forgot!

Well... um, welcome to RationalWiki, then. I like how you're still sticking around at CP - "keep your friends close and your enemies closer" and all that. So... yeah. Feebas factor 03:04, 6 October 2007 (EDT)

Clinton and the Gay Bomb...[edit]

There, there, Jenkins. You tried your best. But didn't you know? RobS's "Idiot's Grin Stratagem" is nigh undefeatable. And this was a textbook example in action. 206.248.152.74 15:48, 8 October 2007 (EDT)

Sorry[edit]

Ed's a complete tool. UchihaKATON! 21:51, 26 January 2008 (EST)

Nah, I really don't blame him, even though it's a pity that he apparently chose to ignore the points I made in the mail (see my user page here) and instead just interpreted it as me being aggressive.
Of course, I mainly asked for the ban to make a point. And in the end, I got the ban, but the point was completely lost to them. Oh well. C'est la vie. (Beware: French part not spellchecked, and my French is terribly rusty to begin with.) --Jenkins 21:56, 26 January 2008 (EST)
C'est correct. Actually I don't think Ed is malicious per se, he's just completely deferrant to the other sysops and that leads him to be completely blind to their aberrant (and abhorrant) behaviour. UchihaKATON! 22:07, 26 January 2008 (EST)
P.S. Belligerent email is awesome. UchihaKATON! 00:10, 27 January 2008 (EST)
P.P.S. Ed's spelling of belligerent belligerint is even better. --BillOhannitygodvelocity. 00:54, 27 January 2008 (EST)
In order: Yes, he's a blind follower, thanks for the compliment, and yes, the spelling threw me off, too. --Jenkins 07:07, 27 January 2008 (EST)
Ed is a horrible tool. He is not at all innocent. He cannot fall back on the Eichmann defense. He'll do anything for a taste of power. --PalMD-Did that sound a little harsh? 11:29, 27 January 2008 (EST)

What[edit]

Hey - I'm not really sure what your point is on the new WIGO thing - you do realized that Iduan only was talking about mainspace edits - right? (if you don't, I put the diff up)--Danielfolsom 11:15, 27 January 2008 (EST)

I admit I missed the "unless talk space" bit. However, that's still him just making stuff up - talk space summaries should also contain some sort of hint (or just be left blank). There is no reason to exclude talk space from such a rule. To make matters worse, he even uses/used "re" (which I always assumed was short of "reply") when creating new talk sections. I admit that it's not the most epic Lulz (especially with his own disclaimer to exclude talk), but I guess we may as well leave it up? Not sure.
As an aside, wow, you guys are fast! I came here when I saw that Iduan had poofed, only to find that two people here had already contributed to that WIGO item! --Jenkins 11:25, 27 January 2008 (EST)
