Please to remove the libel

Foz Meadows clearly doesn't understand irony even when she publicly displays it while in the process of maliciously defaming a Hugo-nominated science fiction editor at a leading independent publishing house:
Stories reflect us, and we reflect them back at themselves, like one of Terry Pratchett’s witches standing at the heart of a room of mirrors: humanity all the way down. In the midst of real-world politics and their ever-evolving consequences, our narrow individual perspective is that of a character denied the author’s omniscience: we don’t know what to make of the pattern of things – if there even is a pattern – or where events are headed, and yet we still have to choose what to do in the moment. And so we look outside ourselves, to stories where we do really know what’s happening, to characters in whose hopes and fears we recognise our own. We might make jokes and memes about it, buy little rubber bracelets stamped with WWBD (What Would Buffy Do?) and laugh at our preoccupation with people who don’t really exist, but when the hammer falls and our own words fail us, theirs remain.

I must not tell lies.

We are not things.

If we burn, you burn with us.


Right now, we don’t need a Jedi Master to tell us that fear leads to anger, anger to hate, and hate to suffering: that’s not an abstract mystical tenet, but the bedrock of our current political reality. For the past few years, the Sad and Rabid Puppies – guided by an actual neo-Nazi – have campaigned against what they perceive as the recent politicization of SFF as a genre, as though it’s humanly possible to write a story involving people that doesn’t have a political dimension; as though “political narrative” means “I disagreed with the premise or content, which makes it Wrong” and not “a narrative which contains and was written by people.”
Yes, Foz, you really must not tell lies. It's rather egregious when you tell them right in the following paragraph.

I have written to John O'Neill, my former editor at Black Gate, asking him to remove this false, malicious, and materially damaging libel directed at me, and by extension, the Sad and Rabid Puppies. As I was a long-time contributor to Black Gate, Mr. O'Neill knows perfectly well that I am neither a neo-Nazi nor a National Socialist, I have never been a neo-Nazi or a National Socialist, I do not belong to, or subscribe to the tenets of, the German National Socialist Workers Party or any subsequent facsimile, and I do not appreciate the libelous attempts of Ms Meadows, to publicly and falsely assert that I am "an actual neo-Nazi".

Moreover, the link which was provided to demonstrate that I am "an actual neo-Nazi" actually proves the precise opposite. Therefore, it is a matter of public record that the information was published, I was directly or indirectly identified, the remarks were defamatory towards my reputation, the published information is false, and both Foz Meadows and Black Gate are clearly at fault.

I have great respect for John O'Neill, I still enjoy reading Black Gate from time to time, and I very much hope that he did not know about this malicious libel at the time it was posted. Now that he has been made aware of it, I tend to expect he will see fit to do the right thing and remove it from the article rather than pursue the SJW strategy and double down.


UPDATE: Being an SJW, Foz is doubling down. This should be educational.
Oh dear. Apparently VoxPox is wroth with me for calling him a neo-Nazi. If it supports eugenics, racism, misogyny and heils like a duck...

UPDATE: We certainly won't have any trouble proving ill will.

UPDATE: As I expected, John was very reasonable about it and the matter is being resolved. Thanks for your support, everyone.

It's amusing to see the dishonest SJW attempts to conflate "white nationalism" with considerably different ideologies like "white supremacism", let alone "neo-Nazism".

White supremacism is a silly, ignorant view of the world. Every race has its strengths and weaknesses. Every sufficiently large group, no matter the race, is capable of suicidal idiocy.

White nationalism, on the other hand, is a perfectly healthy sentiment that clear-headed, well-educated individuals, whether they be white or not, should support.

Vox has made his views about these perfectly clear on many occasions, both in his 16 Points and elsewhere, but that won't stop the Social Justice Warriors from lying, naturally.

Incidentally, the lone comment on that Black Gate article is comical.

This 'Foz' is clearly a product of modern schooling. To emphasize your point, all you have to do nowadays, in the SJW zeitgeist, is use words like 'literally' or 'actually' to signal that you're super serious. Real words, real definitions as well as real life and facts are things for other people. 'Foz' seems to really not like Vox and his crew, and she's letting everyone know about it. This paradigm is present even (perhaps especially) at the top tier private high schools.

The incapability of SJWs to function outside of politics is getting grating. I have to work with one of our contractors and every time I talk to him a comment about how awful Trump is has to be inserted into the conversation. We are talking about F'n data warehousing.

I've noticed that on sports radio: during a story about a player getting injured, someone will quip that he'd better get it dealt with before Trump kills health care, that kind of thing (as if pro athletes are dependent on ObamaCare).

On the one hand, it's annoying. On the other, it comes off as defeated and pissy, which isn't going to win anyone over. So I hope they keep it up, though I may not be listening.

Maybe it's too early in the morning, but I've tried to read that first paragraph three times, and my brain just won't bring it into focus. It's aggressively nonsensical, and my eyes dart around trying to find some alternative way to absorb it that will make it make sense, since the usual one-word-at-a-time doesn't work. No luck.

But I get the rest. It's cute to watch the people who have controlled all the meaningful institutions for decades try to portray themselves as the plucky rebels fighting back against an evil empire, all because they lost one election to a man who hasn't even taken office yet.

I mean I can understand that there is a niche for this genderqueer fantasy crap, I mean, I'm sure that like maybe .003 percent of people who read Sci fi and fantasy would want to read about a Transgender elf who identifies as a dragon and is on a quest to get an abortion in Magical Muslim Land where everything is permissable (?) before their eggs hatch, but to expect that everyone who reads sci-fi must read this trash or be called nazis is just insane and evil.

It's an easy cop out to say that the reason no one wants to read your book isn't because it's shit, but because every one is a racist, sexist, mysoginistic, homophobe.

Earlier this year, in the course of sharing my love for Dragon Age 2 on Twitter, I ended up in conversation with a UKIP supporter who, to my complete astonishment, was also a fan of the game.

2011’s Dragon Age II unexpectedly bombed with consumers, despite, of course, the rave reviews from mainstream game news sites, who need only get a whiff of a paraplegic lesbian in an ill-fated love affair with a black transsexual to award a game full marks. -- Milo

There's no direct Australian equivalent. There's a Tax File Number and if you are on social security payments you have a client number with Centrelink. Neither gets bandied about much, ID for any given purpose is usually proven in-person from source documents.

I'd be pretty impressed if you could dig up a TFN on someone without social engineering in a big way.

However, it should go without saying, that I think doxing someone is shit, and kinda superfluous: since she's made no attempt at anonymity, papers for the defamation case should be very easily served.

-1 to Foz for lack of creativity. I thought their narrative in describing alt-right as directed on-high - Associated Press writing standard - was to use "self-described xxx" (where xxx can be one of whom was: "misogynist," "racist," "anti-Semite," and "a few other flavors of asshole") -- apparently the more of those target can be self-described as, the more points they win.

Disagree. The lack of natural selection in recent decades (centuries?) led to proliferation of a subspecies of people who simply don't know how to avoid hurting themselves. Members of this subspecies act in ways that reveal their belief in a world without consequences.

As do many others, a beneficial effect of the end of this Long Boom will be to alter selective conditions such that members of this subspecies will have very, VERY brief life expectancies.

As a biologist by education, I respect Nature's selective prowess in ways Left Cultists will eventually come to respect, if only by their being culled.

[On a related note, my wife's 4th grade classroom now has significant numbers of students who are so lacking in problem-solving aptitude that (literally) if their pencil breaks they simply announce it, and wait to be walked though the decision process necessary to get up, walk over to the pencil sharpener, sharpen the pencil, then go back to their desk and return to their task.

These are not isolated incidents.]

The charge of misogyny isn't as egregious as calling someone an "actual neo-Nazi," but it's just as stupid and ill-founded. Idiots like to call Vox a misogynist because he fails to be obsequious where women are concerned, but the great irony is that he does in fact treat women with respect -- by reinforcing a certain level of behavior, and by rewarding skill and virtue.

I've said it here before, and I'll say it again. For all of his insipid SJWism, all I ever got from Scalzi was the ban-hammer. Three comments on his blog, and I was banished forever for "crossing the stupid line." I come to VP, and Vox gives me a book deal. Tell me who the misogynist is.

@47, In Australia "journalism ethics and practice" is a nonsensical sentence. The first word cannot meaningfully be combined with either of the other words, and certainly not both at once.
@44 No no no no. At the heart of SJWism is a total disregard for outcomes. If the outcome of Vox' evil misogyny is that he actually respects women, or achieves results for women, or empowers women, that DOESN'T COUNT. Meanwhile if compassionate proper SJWism results in misery, horror and death, well, that doesn't count either.

SJWism is, at its very core, a vehement commitment to ignoring, ridiculing, and suppressing any assessment of outcomes.

One interesting detail. The guy has chosen three adjectives to describe Nazism and at least one is completely wrong. Hitler was not only far from being misogynistic, but he was quite popular among women, having the Nazis MORE votes among women than among men. Hitler was the Obama from the 30s.

"George Washington University teaching instructor Dr. Kristian Henderson had been battling with her hair for years, but after the election, she finally took off her weave and cut it all off. “The election results felt like an attack on minorities, women, and marginalized people in general. Having long hair was my attempt to fit into society, so after the election, I felt a need to exert my ‘uniqueness’ and not tie my femininity to the length of my hair,” she says. Vegan chef Mya Zeronis — who says she’s “a minority in almost every way possible: immigrant woman of color and LGBQT person” — clipper-cut her brown hair on November 18 “to send a message to the Trump presidency.”

When someone calls for social security numbers and bank accounts it's a fair assumption to conclude that's the purpose.

Stop defending your error. Fair or not, it was wrong. Instead of making assumptions, just ask the first time.

There is no point in pursuing a defamation case if it a) can't be won due to jurisdiction, or b) can't impose any financial penalty on the guilty party. I didn't pursue SFWA after going through a legal review because there was no case, the lawyers determined that they didn't even expel me and I suffered no material damages.

In this case, it appears, to the layman, that all of the elements of a successful defamation case may be in place, possibly in both jurisdictions if John permits the libel to remain. So, it behooves us to gather as much information as possible, especially since Black Gate is a competitor to the Castalia House blog.

My favorite: how she discusses female characters in fiction while missing that they're all men-with-tits. It never occurs to her that writing women's characters in reality would produce endless copies of Sex In The City.

At a time when you can't tell satire from reality, reading this sort of thing in the right light makes for decent, albeit brief, entertainment.

I'm willing to give 2:1 odds she now or recently sported color in her hair that isn't among the shades offered up by nature. My top votes are "electric blue" or mauve.

"We might make jokes and memes about it, buy little rubber bracelets stamped with WWBD (What Would Buffy Do?) and laugh at our preoccupation with people who don’t really exist, but when the hammer falls and our own words fail us, theirs remain.
...
Right now, we don’t need a Jedi Master to tell us that fear leads to anger, anger to hate, and hate to suffering: that’s not an abstract mystical tenet, but the bedrock of our current political reality."

Truly she has a dizzying intellect.

As an aside, there is a clip in the RLM/Plinket review of Force Awakens where they show the actress who played the chrome storm trooper gushing over parents supposedly saying to her, "my little girl loves dressing up as captain fasma".

"When was it that public discourse declined to the level I recall from a typical 12-year-old, you know, kids living in the moment before someone's fist sandwich taught them to keep their insults to themselves unless they were willing to back it with blood?

Am I the last man who keeps in mind that someone I casually disdain might simply pull out a gun and end me? And use that standard to make the insults I do hurl anything but casual?

By every standard save the toys that surround us, these times (and the people inhabiting them) are utterly debased."

I've been wondering the same thing for a long time. Maybe I took a wrong turn in the wormhole...

Well, you see it would take a real man to desire to defend his honor in that way, and such appear to be sorely lacking at the moment. And when those inclined to do so stop to consider the cost it becomes apparent it's simply not worth the trouble, however deserving the other party may be.

Vox,

For those that haven't clicked the original link:


In the article "neo-nazi" links to another post that links to another blog (according to that author) on Vox & Nazism

Before clicking that link, I was thinking it was going to be hard to prove that she was specifically
targeting you - (you might have had someone saying they were speaking for you involved with the puppies that the author encountered)

But, then she labels you as a "neo-nazi" in a link which wasn't even used in the linked post.

The other author sure butchered your quote to come up with headline:

Nazism - semiotically useful

from

"Alt-White has a romantic view of National Socialism. Alt-West regards it as a suicidally stupid but semiotically useful form of German nationalism."

Archived this- it further shows an "intent"

Today the only people who will throw lead over insults are inner-city blacks. I don't think this makes them the only real men around (not that I read you as insinuating this.)

How do you tell real men from pussies and white rabbits, when we all live in a feminist-inspired (note, NOT matriarchal, but feminist) polity, itself an artifact of too soft times for too long, where honor is legally deemed of such worthlessness that defending it is a felony?

I argue that the central question real men face is one of timing; when do you know it's time to raise the Jolly Roger and start slitting throats, when being one moment too early will get you removed from your role as protector of your family, leaving them defenseless when the Shit Gets Real?

"I’ve lost the desire to attempt the courtship phase. The future is uncertain. I am not the optimistic person I was on the morning of Nov. 8, wearing a T-shirt with “Nasty Woman” written inside a red heart. It makes me want to cry thinking of that. Of seeing my oldest in the shirt I bought her in Washington, D.C., that says “Future President.”

Fortunate are we to have our adversaries increasingly express themselves via visual cues. For instance, have you noted how many:
1. violent criminals have tattooed faces?
2. crazy women have funky hair color?
3. crazy women cut their hair buzz or shave?
4. sub men (or sub-men?) look like trannies sans lipstick?

Uniforms on the battlefield make for far less confusion.

I've noticed that on sports radio: during a story about a player getting injured, someone will quip that he'd better get it dealt with before Trump kills health care, that kind of thing (as if pro athletes are dependent on ObamaCare).

Stuff like that is why I quit listening to Car Talk over 10 years ago, jamming gratuitous snark about GW Bush into a discussion of someone's transmission got tedious after a while.

On the one hand, it's annoying. On the other, it comes off as defeated and pissy, which isn't going to win anyone over. So I hope they keep it up, though I may not be listening.

It does sound pissy. I think it's a combination of "personal is political" where some SJW midwits believe everyone is just like them, plus blind virtue signalling. Or maybe it's just immaturity, like a bored 8 year old farting in church.

So if she's bi, is he just cool that he gets to shag her on rare occasion even if she's dreaming of girl parts and anyone but him?

@116 Yeah, see, Fascism was Socialist too. National Socialism, Socialism, and Fascism, all espouse, and practice, placing the productive apparatus of the economy under complete government control - although, unlike Communism, not government ownership.

Putting aside the slaughter and the militarism, Hitler was a good Socialist both by the standards of the time, and by modern Socialist standards (despite the modern standards being pretty wishy-washy). His economics were Socialist, his social goals were Socialist, his model of government and industry was Socialist, in fact I am having a hard time thinking of any arena in which he was not Socialist.
