Over at RationalWiki, which some might recall from the conservapedia thread, we are embarking on a new project to develop a searchable archive of some of the crazy elements of the internet.

Every week we plan on putting up a new article culled from all the various crackpot sources on the net and then asking people to rate the article along a series of qualia.  These ratings will be what are used to classify and eventually search for articles/webpages. The goal being that, for example, someone could search for various articles rating high on fundamentalism and hypocrisy.

The more raters we get the better the distributions and the more informative it will be. So I thought I would ask you guys here since many of you are experts with years of experience dealing with whack jobs to take a look. Offer your ratings and any recommendations you might have on the project.

The page is at:
