Inspired by the Ryulong thread that we have here and going over there recently to read one of the articles that they have, I think it's about time that a separate thread to cover some of the other stupidity that goes on that website is needed. Originally, RationalWiki was a website created to mock Conservapedia but gradually overtime, it morphed into something else entirely and became a hotspot for some really cringeworthy SJW sperging and pompous assholes with a severe case of the Dunning-Kruger effect. While their articles debunking conspiracy theories may not have so much of this bullshit prevalent in there, virtually almost anything else on that site these days is plagued with the kind of shit that I'm talking about. A good primer on the other kinds of shit that they've pulled can be found by reading this article on ED. https://encyclopediadramatica.se/RationalWiki Per the request of several posters in the thread, I have decided to update the OP and add more information about how and why the website has gone downhill and who all the major players are on the site. @The Kebab and Calculator wrote this excellent take on what's wrong with the website and why it's always in such deep shit. The place was a clusterfuck from day 1. Now, it is just a clusterfuck of a different type. Just replace Conservapedia with whatever the latest SJW obsession is. A huge contributing factor to that mess is a complete lack of guidelines/rules/framework. A site of that nature cannot thrive when there are virtually no controls on what the member base can and cannot get away with. There absolutely have to be guidelines and those need to be enforced consistently . The whole mobocracy thing is a cop out and a crock of shit. This is why mega wikispergs like Ryulong thrived there (as his buddyloids still do), truly ridiculous individuals like Castaigne find it to be a comfortable home, and yes, we have Mona. The whole "we love socks" thing is especially stupid and a recipe for mayhem. You can't even get away with that here at Kiwi-land, as Boris the Arisboch quickly found out. Gerard is an awful figurehead. He protects those who toe his line, as he did with Ryulong for so long, and insidiously undermines those who do not. Ryulong is though just such a self-destructive fool that even Gerard's white-knighting was not enough in the end. A good opposite example is Carpetsmoker who Gerard attempted to publicly shame for doing nothing more than attempt to rescue the site. It's all a shame really as totally against the odds, there is actually some very good content there. I hope that when the site finally implodes for good, that content is moved on. Cast of characters in the ongoing RationalWiki drama: The major players besides Ryulong would have to include such names like the anti-Semitic editor Mona Holland, Kitsunelaine / Adam Morland and their godawful art (which @Adamska has kept up with quite well), our very own @WhoopieDoo (who has served as the voice of reason over there and has become a very valuable member here too), Castaigne (more affectionately known here as Cuckstaigne), @FuzzyCuck (FuzzyCatPotato) and the head honcho and batshit loon himself David Gerard, who runs RationalWiki like a tightfisted dictatorship and has become the website's equivalent of Andrew Schafly. GethN7 on WikiInAction and KotakuInAction has also been there as a source of reason in a lot of this drama as well. There's also other strange loons who have posted on that website. They made the infamous rat king and SJWiki creator Laurelai Bailey a sysop at one point. Gamergate: RationalWiki and a lot of its editors are notoriously anti-Gamergate to the point where their own articles on the subject are literally like its own farce to talk about. Look at their cringeworthy Timeline of Gamergate and the edit history in that article. Ryulong has been all over it and even other anti-GG sites have ridiculed them for the shit that they've pulled there. Other bizarre happenings: One of the strangest occurrences was pedo TGComix making an account on RationalWiki and the following drama over how long it took him to get banned from the website as people were trying to tell FuzzyCatPotato about who he was. Geth once again was the voice of reason in that whole debacle. RationalWiki has also had other idiots like Atlantid edit some of their pages. He was an a-log of far right troll Mikemikev and even came in this thread to trollshield and sperg about dumb shit.
