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

You done good[edit]

You've been doing some good edits, but most importantly you've avoided drawing attention to Goonie's incredibly small genitals. Your punishment is Sysopship. See these instructions for an overview what you can do with your new powers. Give me a shout on my talk page, or hit Saloon Bar if you've any questions. Please continue to avoid all mention of his trouser chipolata. Concernedresident omg!!! ponies!!! 23:37, 18 January 2011 (UTC)

It's a feature![edit]

And well done on bringing this lunacy to RW in the first place. What other nutters do you have a writeup cooking on? - David Gerard (talk) 17:08, 27 March 2012 (UTC)

Thanks, though I think you deserve all the credit for the incredible amount of copyediting and improvement you've brought to that article. I especially like the new lead section. I've never felt comfortable with the previous version but yours gets straight to the point and gets the whole complex idea across really succinctly. I don't know of any other nutters yet but I'll let you know when I do. Despite browsing crank sites I first stumbled across these folks in the most unlikely of places on http://www.whatdotheyknow.com. I had no idea what their ravings were about but when I managed to figure it out I was kind of annoyed that a) There wasn't anything that gave an easy, accesible explanation of what exactly it was and b) that it was total bollocks. I think we should both be proud that the article has slowly creaped up google to be on the first page of results. Ydam (talk) 20:24, 27 March 2012 (UTC)
