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: $1680Goal: $3500

Hello Spud, can you please explain why you have blocked this IP address for as long as 31415 seconds? This seems wholly unnecessary, to me it appears that a block of 3141 seconds would have been sufficient. Kiko4564 (talk) 10:19, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Your revert at RationalWiki:Saloon_bar[edit]

Hi again, whilst I don't dispute you are right on the technicality that "unbanning yourself is not block evasion", I still believe that he was evading the spirit of his block (if not the letter). Therefore I would like to discuss this revert you made. Why do you believe that User:Hastur's comment should be allowed to remain on it, when he posted it whilst "unlawfully at large" from a block? In my opinion as per the spirit of blocking policy (if not it's letter) his comment should be removed from that page. Kiko4564 (talk) 10:27, 9 August 2020 (UTC)

Have a nice one! Don't let this site consume you. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 19:03, 29 August 2020 (UTC)

@Fowler and @DuceMoosolini Thank you. @FĂ©inlĂ©iriĂș Go raibh maith agat. @LeftyGreenMario Thank you. And don't worry. RationalWiki still does me more good than harm. We'll get through this difficult patch and out the other side. I'll still be here. I hope you'll still be here. We can take it! And there'll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover tomorrow, just you wait and see. Spud (talk) 03:41, 30 August 2020 (UTC)

Freeman on the land[edit]

Would you like to explain why you called me a "fucking vandal" in the edit summary of your reverts? Kiko4564 (talk) 19:16, 15 September 2020 (UTC)

Probably because you're a fucking vandal. I would also like to add that you're a fucking concern troll. Knight CommanderIn ServiceTo HerGoatness 22:56, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
Exactly. You were a self-confessed vandal and I don't know how you escaped a permaban. Spud (talk) 23:47, 15 September 2020 (UTC)
If you think that I can't be trusted with Autopatrolled, then you may by all means promote me. Thanks for letting me know Coigreach, and Spud. Kiko4564 (talk) 22:37, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

Block request[edit]

Can you please temporarily block and desysop me for, say, a week so that I stop responding to that Charlottesville individual??? I just get really frustrated having to make the same points over and over again, and I would like to force myself to not respond. Thank you. WHOA nice JOKE B U D 14:26, 16 September 2020 (UTC)

I don't think you need a block, maybe you should just take a wikibreak, and when you get back remember Troll. Kiko4564 (talk) 22:38, 16 September 2020 (UTC)


I don't know the abilities of that bot, do you? ,--Scream!! (talk) 04:08, 19 September 2020 (UTC)

Should be harmless--Hastur! (talk) 06:01, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
Yeah. Not even autopatrolled. Nothing to worry about. Spud (talk) 06:41, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
