I already posted on Voat (great site, better than Reddit) about why I was pissed on by RationalWiki, and since I don't feel like belaboring that shitstorm, here's a link to my Voat post with more detail:
Anyway, what I want to get off my chest is that, while the above link covers quite a bit of my disgust, I have other reasons than RationalWiki's sad descent into SJWism for why I consider them a laughingstock.
1. They actually used to honor civil debate, no matter the topic - Well, not entirely true, they tore Tisane a new asshole over him trying to debate the merits of child porn, but given my own feelings on that subject, I mirror their disgust, but otherwise, they used to be pretty openminded, and the debates were surprisingly civil and rational.
In the shitstorm detailed above, I have to admit I was surprised by the raw, vicious venom spewed by the posters there. Not just Ryulong, I already knew that jackass was an asshat who was rightfully banned from Wikipedia for being a vicious little bastard, it was everyone else whose raw, unadulterated bile I found shocking, as just a few years back, I never was involved in any discussion or read one where most to all people in the discussion were lacing their statements with ad hominems. I'll concede most of the same parties tried to deliver counterpoints, but I was going out of my way to be polite, and maybe I'm just horribly naive, but when someone is trying to be polite, you try to return the courtesy, especially if they give generous room to admit they are wrong, which I did.
2. They've become what they sought to mock - As in, they've become the same block happy, ban happy, memory holing pricks they mocked Conservapedia for over the last several years. The site I remember of a few years ago no longer bears the slightest resemblance to RW now.
3. They aren't so different from the SJWiki - The SJWiki is a wiki of SJWs too crazy for RW, but not long after I left RW for the final time, one of my comments about how I'm colorblind (in other words, I'm not one to discriminate) was somehow turned into an attack on me for not acknowledging racism.
Forgive me, but a record scratch played in my brain when I tried to parse that shit: How the fuck does not discriminating against people make me a bigot? And besides, I know very well discrimination is shitty, THAT'S WHY I'M NOT A BIGOT!
....sorry, but that just blew my mind.
Anyway, not long after that little backshot, an article was soon created on colorblindness that reads like the same fetid tripe you'd find on what's supposed to be RW's lunatic containment vessel.
4. RW has always been at war with Eastasia - Not only did I get shit on for daring to admit I aligned myself with a movement (Gamergate) that RW has chosen to denigrate as evil incarnate and unwilling to admit it has fault when I, a member of the same, was willing to admit just that and went out of my way to show them respect and dignity despite being one of the "evil ones", my sysop status was stripped with a backshot of how the party who promoted me initially to that (now banned, and whom I've denounced on this blog for crimes against RW) never should have done so in the first place.
.......before I go on, I don't ever want to return to such a naked hive of spite, so the stripping of my sysop bit doesn't really faze me, but the implication I was always unwanted just seems pretty goddamned petty, especially considered they never felt this way until I went against the contemporary hive mind, an act they commonly have lambasted Conservapedia for pulling countless times.
In conclusion, good riddance to that shithole, I have no intention of returning, so they have no need to worry about me disturbing the harmony of their circlejerk, but I do have one thing to say, should any of them read this:
Take "Rational" out of your site title. You might have been once, but now you look like hypocrites for shitting on Conservapedia. In fact, you look worse, since they never even pretended they were anything other than a circlejerk.
