Pale Moon redirect

From a Pale Moon-using Infogalaxian.

I'm on Vista using Pale Moon, this is how I did the Infogalactic redirect:

Install Redirector 2.9.3 (older version)

After installation, set it up this way:
  1. Example URL:*
  2. Include Pattern:*
  3. Redirect To:$1
  4. Pattern Type: select wildcard 
  5. Check the enable box 
  6. Test button will say SUCCESS 
  7. Save button gets it done 
Any link to Wikipedia now brings up the Infogalactic page instead!

Fan mail

From a new user of Infogalactic:
Today, I did a quick internet search (Google) for "Shiva" to verify a detail or two.  I clicked on the Wikipedia link.  By the end of the second brief paragraph, I was already informed of "the goddess tradition of Hinduism called Shaktism" and how it considers Parvati to be "the equal complementary partner" of Shiva.

Hmm.  Is Shaktism so prevalent or important that it must be introduced before we learn anything more of Shiva?  Also, I can understand how Parvati may be "complementary", but the addition of "equal" smelled too SJWish.  I went to Infogalactic to see how its page differs.

On Infogalactic, the offending lines are absent, among other changes.

I am impressed.  I am also encouraged.  I don't know where Infogalactic will lead or what all it will accomplish.  I can only imagine what providing a more pure source of information may do, how it may affect all the minds searching for information.  What if our youth become accustomed to the *lack* of SJW propaganda, and as a result become similarly skeptical when they meet it, as I did today?  You are saving lives and securing the future.

Enough for now.  I just wanted to drop you a line to say you're appreciated, that I am proud to be a supporter, and that I will help spread the word.
That is certainly encouraging! One step at a time. One page at a time. But the goal of an objective, user-centric knowledge core is gradually taking shape, thanks to everyone's support.
