And started by Phyllis Schlafly’s son, no less.

For those who need it spelled out: I am posting this because I find it comical that conservatives, who are generally so self-righteous in their beliefs that “the facts” are indisputable and lead inexorably to their worldview, have built themselves a safe space in order to cloister their information from any outside influence. You love to see it, folks.

    If that were true, the general public would not be able to edit the content at the wiki. But in fact Conservapedia invites public engagement.

    Vox Day has a similar project called “Infogalactic”

    Because of increasing censorship, some content developers are electing to build their own platforms. This strikes me as a healthy trend, not something to mock.

      1. You should read your own source: “InfoGalactic sources all information and typically uses credible sources. Overall, we rate InfoGalactic Questionable based on their newsfeed that has an extreme right wing bias in story selection as well as the writers associated with their news page. ”

        The newsfeed is only one page out of hundreds of thousands that make up the wiki. InfoGalactic began by reproducing Wikipedia in its entirety. Since going public, it has been evolving according to its own curation procedures, as all wikis do.

  3. After reading a little I assumed it was in competition with the ONION and was shocked to learn it takes itself seriously.

    As satire it is absolutely hilarious. Thanks.
