If cancer was a website, this would be it.
Scientist 1: Look! I've discovered a new type of cancer!
Scientist 2: That's just rationalwiki
Scientist 1: What's the difference?

A narrative-crafter website posing as being rational. They pretend to leave their wikis open to editing but ban anyone who edits any page in a way that conflicts with their highly, highly biased narrative.

They seem to think conspiracies are impossible despite a quick search for "conspiracy theories that turned out to be true" showing the list is long and continues to grow. Anyone who posts anything that conflicts with the "official narrative" is immedia banned permanently regardless of how solid the evidence and sourcing is.

In other words, the site should be renamed irrationalwiki as they have an unreasonably strong bias toward conformity and supposed "authority" which is antithetical to science and critical thinking.
Only braindead idiots think rationalwiki.com is a rational source for any information on anything.

A website run by politically motivated and hard-core woke individuals. Their website is centered around left-liberal doctrines such as militaristic atheism, white guilt, feminism, gynocentrism, anti-Сhristianity and radical LGBT dogmas. Despite the obvious fact that RationalWiki has pretty much nothing to do with basic rationality, as rationality requires an objective and unbiased view on political, economical and social issues (and such a statement is, unironically, demagogically ridiculed by the admins once they face criticism towards their website for not being rational), many liberals don't find anything wrong with this as the website's narrative fits exactly what these people want to read there. People who do not follow the narrative of this wiki and enter into disputes with the site administration are almost always immediately blocked and very often accused of being "far-right", "fascist" or even sometimes "tankies" (for those who hold left-wing views and are opposed to the RationalWiki ideology, although it depends on each user). Everything written above leaves the impression of this website being a circus of illiterate political freaks, strongly reminiscent of troll wikis such as Encyclopedia Dramatica, but unfortunately, in our reality these people sincerely stand behind their ideology as if it's a sacred cow.
"RationalWiki is about as reliable as the diary of an average middle school kid; I wouldn’t outright dismiss everything they say as baloney, but expect lots of bias and factual inaccuracies. It was created by a group of immature adults who enjoyed vandalizing other wikis, like Conservapedia and Wikipedia. They basically created RationalWiki to publish what the other wikis wouldn’t allow them to publish."

A website that should change its name to "irrationakwiki". It is basically the liberal version of Conservapedia. Rather than spewing bias, fundamentalist christian and ultra conservative views, it instead spews liberal views and has a left-wing bias. However, it is more centre left than far left since it criticises socialism and communism, at least to an extent. The name 'RationalWiki" can also be used to describe fighting bias with bias and looking like a moronic baboon ranting. Basically, RationalWiki is as bad as Conservapedia. Don't use it. It's not as bad as Conservapedia, but it is still biased like all political wikis, news sources (like CNN or Fox News), videos etc.

Once a well respected website that now is filled with atheist extremists, atheist zealots, anti-theists, liberals, moderate leftists who are centrists in denial, enlightenment centrists, centrist extremists, horseshoe theory supporters, neopositivists, scientificists and people who call everything that is not "scientific" nor "materialist" nor "positivist" as "pseudoscience", "antiscience" and "science denial". Attacking all sides and believing everyone is wrong and only their Wiki is right.
RationalWiki is basically Quora in form of a Wiki.

A wiki run by people who, for some reason, are unable to express their political stance in a direct way. It's also a snarky wiki where the only article that contains absolutely no snark is Socialism.
A: I think it speaks volumes about your ideological beliefs when you gather people to write thousands of pages of tongue-in-cheek material on nearly every ideology ever known except one. That's what RationalWiki does.
B: No, that's just being rational, and you are being irrational for saying that.
