Revisiting Rational Wiki (April 15th, 2015)

I wrote an essay today on the abuses occurring on Rational Wiki from direct experience, frustrations, moans and all.

I figured this was probably the best place to publish it.

I am going to re-edit the article on Rational Wiki based on their responses and will publish shortly.

I’ve also archived the essay here in case they delete it.

Update: They deleted it. More on this narrative here.

  1. If you’re not sure you see my problem – perhaps this *essay can clarify that for you. Sources also back up that essay. They also check out, so clearly there is a discrepancy. I’m not denying that their sources are referencing something close to what they are talking about – it’s a:) how it is cherry picked to contextualize the article (i.e what’s left OUT, not in), b:) the motivations for posting an article (to embarrass me, surely you cannot deny that?) c.) and that it shows up #1 in search discovery. If this was on page 2, or underneath other links, it would not be so upsetting.

  2. And this is what RationalWiki thinks about your essay:

    Mmkay. Honestly, at this point I’d say let him have his essay, clean up any mainspace stupidity he causes, and wait for him to leave. PacWalker 01:59, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

    These aren’t “rational” people, speaking out for truth. These are the same bullying jackasses you see on Reddit, YouTube, etc., lording over a sad ripoff of Encyclopaedia Dramatica that was original built to fight another wiki nobody gives two shits about anymore. Their leader David Gerard looks like Nosferatu and is one of Jimmy Wales’ oldest remaining friends in the Wiki-world, and they do the same sort of e-begging to keep their site going. You can’t win by arguing with shitheels, so I would sue.

      I just now saw his OMG-worthy tantrum. BTW, thanks for the note about the AfD, all the good work on the article, and especially the thankless managing of our cranky guest. Leuders (talk) 17:18, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

      No problem. PacWalker 17:21, 16 April 2015 (UTC)

      Rome is a old problem here, and has attempted to had his article deleted once already. –Madman (talk) 21:13, 16 April 2015 (UTC)The Madman

  3. I think it needs some proofreading, or someone is doing bad edits:

    “Stop Refuting evidence because your lazy” – don’t you mean “stop avoiding the refutation…”

    ” you alone provide as factual, then EITHER you don’t understand evidentiary process. –Castaigne (talk)” – I’m not sure if this is a sic. or I’m waiting for an “or …”.

    “I believe it is fair that if your a technician, ” “you’re” or “you are”
