WhyClublet was started by RichardDrake in 2000 in order to export from WikiWikiWeb pages related to Christianity, which some people considered off topic on WikiWikiWeb. Peter Merel's WikiWikiWeb pages about Zen Buddhism and Taoism applied to patterns, which some people regarded as "Eastern wuss", where also later exported to WhyClublet.
Drake has described WhyClublet as "a WikiPluralismWorkshop all about WorldviewRiskManagement". On WhyClublet, worldview risk management implies that a generalized worldview always bears a risk. This is why WhyClublet intends to be like a workshop for pluralism (differing worldviews).
WhyClublet runs on its own wiki engine, which is known as Clublet.
