Dawkins must have finally realised that if he were ever to get a knighthood he couldn't be seen to be the patron of a website that allowed discussions of topics such as what semen tastes like.

This is actually a question I'd be eager to explore, being always interested in conspiracy theories and their proponents.

Yeah, a place with no rules (to speak of). You know, like where conspiracy theories are praised. Nothing off the menu. That's a rule, isn't it?

Conspiracy? Please familiarise yourself with the meaning of the word. This is a good place for it. Come back to me once you have sorted yourself out on that.

As for Rationalia, with one exception it has pretty much the same set of rules as Rational Skepticism. It's just much less verbose. The exception is that it lacks the puritan restrictions present in this forum. Its chief purpose is after all to replace the 'Feral Offtopic' section that was amputated at RDF.

Conspiracy theorists are tolerated as long as they abide by the 'play nice' rule. We have a few members that are batshit crazy. Galaxian, Dennis Markuse, Seth Richardson and the member from Yellowknife, who write remarkably weird posts come to mind, but the forum is not an environment of which it can be said that conspiracy theories being praised.
