RationalWikiWikiWiki refers to various attempts by RationalWiki or RationalWikiWiki members to set up a wiki monitoring the goings-on at RW and/or RWW; and/or to supplant one or both of those two wikis.


Wikidot Rationalwikiwikiwiki[edit]

The Wikidot Rationalwikiwikiwiki was active from 16th April to 17th April 2008, edited exclusively by "rwwadmin" (no relation to RWW's Admin), and Icewedge.


Ratwikiwikiwiki dates from around the same period, and briefly involved Bohdan, AKjeldsen and Human. It is completely devoid of content, but does have a dancing banana where a brain would usually be found.

Leucosticte iteration[edit]

The Leucosticte iteration of RationalWikiWikiWiki was launched on 1 September 2012. It was briefly shut down after an essay questioning the assumptions justifying the illegal status of "child-adult sex" was reported to the site's webhost resulting in an "adult content" terms of service violation notice that forced the site to either delete the essay or shut down. The RWWW site owner argued that the actions of those who influenced the takedown of the content (including those who helped create a legal environment in which webhosts need fear frivolous lawsuits, and a social and economic environment in which people are condemned and ostracized for espousing certain dissident views) contributed to censorship detrimental to the free exchange of ideas. He moved the site to NearlyFreeSpeech.NET, a more libertarian host shared by NewgonWiki and many similar sites pending a more permanent move to Dreamhost.


There have been many other RationalWikiWikiWikis over the years, none of which have fared well. Their rises and falls have been documented at RationalWikiWikiWikisWiki. There is also a mock RationalWikiWikiWiki at http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Fun:RationalWikiWikiWiki .
