Always happy to help

My, such excitement and drama revolving around Worldcon 75:
A growing controversy over Dave Weingart’s termination as Music department head, brought about by his explanation and complaint on LiveJournal, and the 2017 Helsinki Worldcon committee’s effort to explain and justify their actions on Facebook, has been defused by the Worldcon 75 issuing an apology and taking down its Facebook thread about the matter. Weingart says he has also received a verbal apology from one of the chairs....

Weingart had already made private his LiveJournal posts about the controversy in reaction to Vox Day linking to them from Vox Popoli:

Because Vox Day and his miserable crew of people have glommed onto my disagreement with Worldcon 75 I have made my DW/LJ posts mentioning any other party private. I’ve done likewise with my FB posts.

After Worldcon 75 took down its Facebook thread, Weingart responded:

The wording of Worldcon’s posted apology is something I agreed to verbally on the phone with one of the co-chairs on 2016-10-10, when I was also given a verbal apology. Worldcon’s deleting their other post on this subject (on the Worldcon 75 page) was done with my explicit permission as well. Whatever the disagreement, neither Worldcon 75 nor I want Vox Day to have anything to do with this.
I suppose I'll just write up a little summary for Infogalactic then. Worldcon 75: Controversies. And since there isn't any source information to which we can link it, given the way it's all been hidden away, I guess that just leaves it up to me being able to remember everything correctly.

So, this all started when some sad filkish gamma started stalking a Swedish girl at a science fiction convention, right? I'm sure it will come back to me... perhaps the miserable crew can help jog my memory.

"Verbal apology" + "make private pages and posts" = "no record anyone can point to, but we have to cover our tracks or everyone will look bad."

On the other hand, it's interesting to see rabbits close ranks rather than throw one another under the bus. New development, or just a temporary reprieve for someone else (lower-profile) to be selected as the sacrificial victim for speed-bumping?

creepy gamma dude slept on her couch and profoundly flatulent. She was grossed out but polite. She assumed he had some sort of health problem that caused it... and she didn't want to be ableist.

After polite goodbyes he made a practice of sending her dick pics over facebook. Often he would have a cartoon hat drawn onto his tiny penis with the caption "Fedorable".

I'm pretty sure she said when he stayed that weekend at her house, they had that moment like in the movies where they were both standing silently on each side of her bedroom door and she was waiting for him to do something and he was wondering if he should ask for that second pillow or not. Then he decided he could make do with the one pillow so he crept back to the couch. And she finally drifted off to sleep after she gave up questioning her bad judgement in men.

For infoG:

I asked a Pshrink friend of mine - code name Merkava - for a word to describe those who label those with reasonable and realistic concerns about dangerous things as ---phobes, and the concern itself as phobia. It's clever, in a way, in that they get to call those with reasonable concerns both cowards and lunatics with a single word (that they probably don't understand, anyway).

Our words for the day are "Veritaphobe" and "Veritaphobia" to describe those with a deep seated fear of the truth and the phenom of having a deep seated fear of the truth.

Veritaphobe; veritaphobia. Spread the words to the ends of the Earth.

Does that mean they've reinstated him?

Nevermind that he licks the soles of those who stomp in his face whilst he's down; including that observably evil woman who enjoys the power those freaks have given her over the weak sod. Yes he fully participated in the mob wronging him; nonetheless he was wronged.

He should thank Vox and the Ilk ; rather than bitch and moan about help from the "wrong" side.

Some people cannot be helped. He's wallowing in his unfair punishment for a total non-issue.

One gets crazy trying to understand this freak, and his co-freaks bullying him.

Before I twist my sanity ..... did the (cheap) "apology" include a correction of the unfair punishment? Was he reinstated as music director?

That is a good question.

Here is what he said, "In the middle of August 2014 I met [name redacted] at the World Science Fiction Convention in London. We were friendly and connected on Facebook and Twitter, had lunch together, and she offered me crash space if I ever wanted to visit her area of Sweden. I took her up on it at the end of September 2014 for a weekend. We had a nice weekend and parted as friends. A little later, she messaged me on FB that she wanted to spend less time talking, so we stopped chatting in FB Messenger (the way we would normally communicate) and I didn't talk with her other than liking posts, occasionally commenting on FB or Twitter. She indicated a week or so after that that even that was too much, so I acknowledged, wished her well and honored her request. That's mid-to-late-October 2014. She's since blocked me on Facebook so I can't look up the exact dates as I no longer have access to those messages, but I know that I have friendly comments from her in my FB from after I got back to London from Sweden.

Reading between the lines here.

The chick in question was initially interested for a while but then she actually met him. And was then utterly turned off by his Gamma attempts at romance.

She friendzoned him.

He tried to stalk his way out of the Friendzone.

I'm really only guessing on this next part but I'm willing to bet his efforts to get her back involved a SHIT TON of daily Facebook IMs and Facebook posts to her wall. As well as a hurricane barrage of tweets telling her how pretty and smart she is.

She finally said, look you clearly don't know how to be an orbiter so it's time to leave my orbit before I call the cops. You are now blocked on everything. Goodbye. Bolt the door. And fuck you.

He said, "okay." but then joined some internet board she was a member of and started posting. When she saw his name, she started screaming.

Just guessing here but it does sound like Gamma romance meeting it's natural endstate.

@84 Scene from Future Biographical Film - SJW Annihilation

Supreme Dark Lord addresses the Evil Legion of Evil Brigades, just after performing a demonstrative exercise on the proper way to trigger two SJW's to self-immolate themselves based on the proper knowledge and manipulation of their own SJW's principles.

Supere Dark Lord: "This is part of the "Alt-West" way that we will teach you. Some thoughts have a
certain strategic construct... that being the equivalent to a "digial tactical form". Through digital 4G-Warfare you will be able to "trigger psyches, destroy SJW alliances, set-fire to and take over digital media platforms, raze their organizations, "Doxx" an SJW.... or burst his organs.... We will purge until no SJW or Establishment-Cucks breathe Western Civilization air."

I had been considering attending Worldcon this year -- never been to Helsinki, and hoped that maybe in Europe it wouldn't be so marinated in SJWery. Well, now I can save my money and go sit on a beach and watch the eclipse.

I love how their first instinct is to run for the shadows like cockroaches when the light comes on.

What about the poodle? I distinctly recall there was a poodle involved.

OT, but please indulge. Youtube is censoring Trump’s latest ad: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WTylz2WToXw

Below the video:

This video is unlisted. Be considerate and think twice before sharing.

Google has just censored Prager U videos from Youtube.

Honest question - I've checked a few wiki vs info pages and they are seemingly identical. Are you just important wiki pages?

Miserable Crew? I like that. Yes, we do tend to make SJWs miserable.
Full broadsides, mateys!

Deplorable, miserable, and irredeemable all in less than one month. Haven't had such accolades since as a teenager wrecking the family car.

perhaps the miserable crew can help jog my memory.

Hey, I am not all that miserable.

I am sure I recall there being unwanted advances from Dave involving scatology. I believe it started when he sat outside her locked toilet door inhaling noisily, but rapidly escalated from there.
Apparently the hermetic seal her nether regions make with the toilet bowl due to her corpulence is the only thing that saved her from coprophiliac rape.

Infogalactic's account confirmation routine appears to be broken. I got e-mailed a confirmation link from "No Sender", and it didn't work ("Invalid confirmation code. It may have expired." even though it's not supposed to expire until November), so now my account is fossilized...

What an ungrateful little bitch.

@65 Scintan
SJWs tend to be extraordinarily ungrateful to you if you are a Bad Person. This is yet another example of why they deserve every bad thing that happens to xem.

Yeah, that's pretty much exactly how I imagine things went down.

If the problem still persists, then we can work through it.

@45 Tom Kratman..

I like it, although "veriphobe" sounds a little less clunky.

Next problem: what would you call the sleazy political tactic of using any number of vague indirect linkages to ultimately prove that your target is _____ (fill in the blank: Hitler, racist, backwoods idiot, KKK, etc.) ? 'Innuendo' seems too tame, and does not per se describe the political technique.

How about a "barrage of innuendo proving nothing."

The final straw was when he posted in the Worldcon 75 "all staff" meatball thread. #truestory

No no, it was when some delta with a few gamma traits started thinking he could move up on the "property ladder" by stalking some Swedish broad, so do try to get it right ...

Or if you want to get even more rhetorical, "Six Degrees of Literally Hitler."

I would go with my latter suggestion. I just did a search to check, and apparently there's only ever been one other person in the history of the internet to use that particular phrase, and only for one tweet. Brevity and novelty are effective.

(And obviousness. If you have to ask what it means then it will be ineffective.)
