Is LWwiki really a good place to engage in self promotion of "rationalist" websites of dubious rationality? I propose that this page be deleted. VoiceOfRa (talk) 14:16, 23 November 2015 (AEDT)

I think there is plenty of support and acknowledgment by some aspiring rationalists that Intentional Insights is a project of rationality. I don't think it's appropriate to delete it. Besides, this comment is coming from a user who engaged in repeated ad hominem attacks against the founder of the organization. This is a personal vendetta.

Well, the author has a history of interpreting criticism as trolling, and bringing in "aspiring rationalists" whose only contributions consist of praising him. Seeing as how there are no serious objections, I shall be deleting the page. VoiceOfRa (talk) 08:45, 27 November 2015 (AEDT)

VoiceOfRa us pursuing a personal vendetta consisting of using ad hominem attacks and likely sock puppets against the organization, including unilaterally wiping this Wiki entry. Gleb_Tsipursky (talk) 16:06, 29 November 2015 (AEDT)

I agree that Gleb's version of the page was too self-promotion-y, but not that deletion was the right response. InIn is an organization whose stated goal is the enhancement of rationality, understood in something like LW-fashion, and it's run by an active LW user; it seems reasonable for it to have a wiki page. I have replaced it with something more neutral that acknowledges the controversy; let's see what happens to it. gjm (talk) 02:05, 1 December 2015 (AEDT)


I'm fine with this compromise, and will also add a link to the page about the methods we use based on this recent post as well as information about the evidence that does exist of the organization's impact Gleb_Tsipursky (talk) 04:06, December 1 2015 (AEDT)

Have tried to reduce things; made more neutral and hopefully made it a bit better. Mentioned by both myself (here: http://lesswrong.com/r/discussion/lw/n0p/open_thread_nov_30_dec_06_2015/cxhp "I suggest Gleb not be permitted to edit the page as he is motivated to not be impartial. ") and lumifier (here: http://lesswrong.com/r/discussion/lw/n0t/weirdness_at_the_wiki/cxl2 " I would support the rule that the subject of the wiki article is prohibited from touching it.") I would like Gleb to not edit this page. If that is done; I would also like VoicesOfRa to also not edit this page. Any edits (while slow and annoying) can be made by asking someone else to do it for you. --Elo (talk) 16:54, 2 December 2015 (AEDT)
