Re: Wikipedia again censoring a front page Megan Twohey story from NYTimes with international followup

Millions people already read the article, don't know why they are fumbling trying to keep it off the middle of some obscure wikipedia article, when they add other incel-related stories like the month-of

Re: Experiences with RationalWiki and MetaPedia?

They are not "leftist", they are "trollist". RW exists to shit on everyone in the political world ... I would say yes, at points certain politically capable users have attempted to go beyond the TrollWiki brand, quickly to be worn down and discarded. At the heart of the project has always been this...

Should Wikipedians with severe autism be barred from admin positions?

So many Wikipedia administrators appear to have severe autism. It's not *always* a bad thing. I know one administrator with autism that is *ok*.

Re: Experiences with RationalWiki and MetaPedia?

This is a technocratic, American liberal politics wiki with hundreds of pages on dense American political subjects written a decade ago. No it's not. It's a trolling and bullying wiki. Read this, and tell me what it has to do with "liberal politics". https://rationalwiki.org/wiki/William_Nelson The...

Re: Experiences with RationalWiki and MetaPedia?

Regardless of if Milton was right or wrong, his presence in economics and American political history is enormous. This is a technocratic...
