Rabbit logic

One attempts to move on, but they keep pulling one back in.  And honestly, how can anyone not enjoy watching their tiny little rabbit minds so furiously at work?
staranise says:    Asking for “debate” confuses me simply because it presupposes that it would accomplish something different from the current situation, in which any parties concerned have an unlimited personal platform to put forward their ideas and reasoning. It supposes that the parties are unfamiliar with each other’s positions and reasoning. This isn’t true, so there’s not much new to say. Nothing significant would change. Ah. Except, of course, RSHD would get happy pantsfeelings from being paid attention to.  The call for debate is the same as standing outside Scalzi’s house with a boombox over one’s head. It’s not going to work! Turn off the Peter Gabriel. Go home.

John Scalzi says:    Guys, I think we can give the topic of a debate a rest.

MMAH says:    Oh, and look–front page at Salon this morning, too.
Yes, I've noticed many things confuse them.  What is particularly funny about this little dialogue is that I never challenged McRapey to a debate.  The challenge came from Ed Trimnell, who happens to be a critic of mine, and it would be Ed, not me, who is metaphorically standing outside in the rain.

But to return to the rabbit logic, apparently I would get "happy pantsfeelings" from Ed's call being answered and thereby having to spend a modicum of effort to kick around McRapey in front of a few thousand blog readers, but was devastated by the brilliant way in which McRapey and Ensign Wesley banded together in order to draw attention to me in the Guardian, the BBC, and Salon, among others.

It's rather like watching them try to add 2+2+2 and coming up with the answer "purple badger".

I'm not sure if this has been linked before, but these were Bane's thoughts on John Scalzi five years ago.

The Grand Hutchinson of Warrenship Down*, slaying himself for all to see in several venues for the benefit of others, Pharisee of Pharisees.

But he has yet to come here as far as I can tell, ever. Nor any of his warren really. Unless Tad's a closet Whatever.

I don't think Scalzi's plan is quite working out the way he thought it would, on more than one level.



*Impressed with whichever of the Ilk came up with this name. Should be elevated alongside McRapey and rabbitology for this entire series.

This is priceless. I keep going back to MeSoMichelle as the most awesome Internet ass-kicking I have ever seen (well, besides the BoB thing in Eve...). This has topped that already as the commisioning of self-mocking art is the most limp-wristed retort I have seen.

He has spent way too much time writing about why you are stupid and wrong to now try to convince people that a debate would be wasting his time.

If there really is 'nothing more to say' then I guess he won't be doing any more posts about you. How long did he last before, 3 days?

Tad's reflexive to anything Vox says or does, so of course the opposite. Goes without saying that he'd dote on Scalzi's "lavender rabbit emerging" approach. But beyond that, it doesn't confirm him as a Whatever regular.

The only downside to all of it is the frustration of trying to explain it to someone who wasn't following from the beginning.

The biggest upside is that I have been both a target and a participant of the non-sequiturial hopping in real life. As an onlooker now, wow, yes it really does work like this.

When Vox offers what will appear like contrition, the bunnies will be hopping all over each other to be the most compassionate and forgiving. Yes, they will pay tribute.

Keep in mind, it also got his name mentioned on sites with readership numbers which dwarf Whatever, VP and Alpha Game combined. For a writer whose books are on the shelves of major bookstores, this is no small benefit.

I'd say this is a win all around. We get our entertainment, Scalzi gets his publicity, he and his followers get to feel self-righteous, and his causes get their donations.

I predict if you went that route, you'd sit there for all of one minute before experiencing an "oh shit, I really should start arguing now" moment, once you realized that far less than 99% were going to walk away thinking Vox was wrong if you just let him make his case.

There's no way Tad is a legitimate poster. It's got to be someone yanking chains. Most people just aren't this naturally stupid. This level of abject stupidity almost always takes deliberate effort to achieve.

I find him just a shrill and annoying leftist. That alone is reason enough for me to make sure he never gets another cent of mine.

Anonymous Daniel February 06, 2013 5:06 PM  

I cannot understand the total lack of spine over there. I get that rabbits are going to rabbit. But why are there only rabbits? Doesn't Scalzi have any non-rabbit fans?

I am a fan of Scalzi's best works, and he used to write some funny sarcasm. But it w

Old Man's War, and the title, if not the execution of Your Hate Mail Will Be Graded. He wrote some fine but forgettable follow-ups in the Heinlein vein, then completely lost me as soon as he tried his Heinlein "homage" schtick on H. Beam Piper. But OMW is still a nice read, and not even Scalzi can leave OMW scalzied.

The guy is caught in a recursive loop of self-mockery now, and simply can't stop hitting himself. He'd just be the retarded spazmoid in the corner at the old science fiction writer's home and quite pathetic, if it were not for the tender administration of balm by Nurse Day and his Angels of Ilk. We give his repetitive life both hope and meaning.

But, a far greater author in Martin has fallen into a senile puddle of money and purposelessness. That takes nothing away from the fact that A Game of Thrones is still a very good book. Scalzi's fall has been epic, but that should take nothing away from the fact that once, he told some jokes on the internet that were funny and once, he wrote a novel in the style of Heinlein, and it wasn't half-bad. Nothing can take that away. Not even Zoe's Tale.

If fact if it were me debating and you tried to make that case, I'd probably respond with, "Please, Vox Day, go on and tell us more of your opinion". In that way I could pretty quickly win over 99% of the few thousands watching or reading.

That's the problem with debate vs. a real fight. In a real fight if one person is beat to a pulp and the other is fine, there's no question who won. But in debate a dishonest or stupid opponent can walk away honestly believing that they won. Spectators who are dishonest or stupid can believe the same.

UI, yes, thanks. I did not like Last Colony as much as you, but Ghost Brigades was okay. You haven't missed anything in the series since then. I actually bought Zoe's Tale and, indeed, read it even after realizing it wasn't a sequel to Last Colony. If you don't know it get ready: It is Last Colony, retold, from the perspective of a teenaged girl. My hope that a formerly good author would redeem (what I thought was) a bad book with a better sequel was, to understate it, somewhat in vain.

From Scalzi: Folks here know that I’m insensibly fond of the character of Zoë Boutin-Perry, in part because I expended so much effort on trying to make her realistically both female and teenage, rather than a convenient teenage girl-shaped version of me. She’s the character I worked the hardest on so far, which makes her special to me (and also, I’m pleased with how she came out, which is not so bad either). I wanted folks to meet her and like her. Beyond this, there was the additional challenge of going back to readers and saying, “so, yeah, remember the last book in the series? Well, this one covers the exact same timeframe. Wanna read it?”

Having read it (for me it was like reading the collapse of a civilization. Not "about" the collapse, literally reading the collapse, as if every cloying turn of phrase was an incantation, rending the universe asunder, atom by atom.

I don't know why Scalzi could never break out of derivatives, but he couldn't. He collapsed, became completely self-referential, and now is stuck "Taunting the Tauntable Since 1998." Too bad for him he runs into so many who are untauntable these days.

Women might be capable of exercising their right to vote (properly), but it is like trying to do good. The proverb says that even the Righteous Man sins seven times a day. In practice, women are more shortsighted and less prudent. They refuse to restrain government. They think it a force for good instead of force that will enslave them, at least at some level. They listen to and believe snakes. If Adam had kept Eve away from the "voting machine" we wouldn't be in this mess. There are some women who can rise above this, but they are not the majority, and in a democracy the majority rules.

I've also stated my dissent here - but I'm not sure there is any real disagreement at the root. Democracy is the enemy and destructive of liberty. If the best government is the least government, voting is only about who does this minimal function so the franchise doesn't matter that much. But when government is about who is going to micromanage your life, either in the bedroom or the office, it matters a lot more, but it is really futile. Once you accept we are all slaves of the state, voting will be an even more silly pretense.

Maybe we should put it this way, women should be able to vote when men can have (conceive and birth) babies.

Actually, I missed all the other demonstrations. Where can I find them? To hear you say it, 99% of the world has been utterly convinced that people who think the way Vox does on this subject - people who are even sympathetic to it, and are willing to hear it out - are just wrong, and can shoot down their views with ease. Yet you're awfully light on direct data. Or data at all.

See, I disagree with Vox in large part. But I also am not so naive to think that 'everyone knows he's wrong', or that he couldn't persuade people if given a stage and free reign to do so. I also don't need to create a fantasy world where 99% of the world agrees with me for fear of realizing that opinions are more diverse, people are actually more open to being swayed on such subjects, etc. People who consider themselves to be progressive like to imagine the progress is always and eternally going in the direction they hope it well. That's why they tend to be so damn disappointed.

Women are perfectly capable of protecting their own and their family's and their community's interests while still protecting liberty. Just because Vox Day doesn't agree with what is right and what is wrong doesn't make women incapable of protecting liberty.

Great. Demonstrate and argue as much. Defend your claim, since Vox has done so in the past. I have the feeling you treat your views less as something to be tested by discussion, and more as nice ideas you turn to for comfort and would prefer not to defend - lest they get harmed, harming you by extension. God forbid you go to bed tonight questioning whether the world really is the way you take it to be.
