Mailvox: a complete failure to grok

There are few things more depressing to an intellectual known for coining terms than seeing people attempting to turn around what they perceive as a perjorative and trying to apply it to you, particularly when in doing so, they demonstrate that they have no idea what the Hell you meant by it in the first place. I'm sure everyone will be astonished to learn that a recently departed commenter couldn't bear to leave without a parting wall of text.
You’ll probably say you don’t really give a damn, and perhaps just “fuck off”, but you and some of the comment cohort did to me what you know is typical of SJWers.

STAGE ONE: Locate or Create a Violation of the Narrative
STAGE TWO: Point and Shriek
STAGE THREE: Isolate and Swarm
STAGE FOUR: Reject and Transform
STAGE FIVE: Press for Surrender”

I was not posturing.  I was not attacking. I engaged in a conversation on items about math and science mentioned by another commenter.

My point was that there are limits to the accuracy in mathematics to understanding things just as there are in language, but some people are as dogmatic about math as some are about science and some about religion. They stretch the bounds of the discipline beyond its limits and dogmatically attack any found guilty of heresy.

It’s your site and your comment section. It should reflect what you want it to.

But y’all did to me exactly what you criticize the SJWers for.

Snidely Whiplash noted a violation of the accepted narrative, pointed a finger and invited the swarm to do their work, and you were the amenable authority.

Bringing up Plato’s analogy and Buddah’s parable was not pretension or posturing. They were on point to the comment I was responding to.

Azure Amaranthine responded on point.

You and the others took the SJWer path of personal attacks and annihilation.

 It is effective...

If you’d said I was getting the thread off topic or the like, it would have been one thing.

But y’all went straight to personal attacks, telling me to get the fuck out, and then deleting comments and threatening expulsion from the group....  again typical of the SJW crowd....

I like your book.  I bought it after the mention on InfoWars.  That also led me to your blog, and I’ve like what little I’ve read of it.

I’ll probably continue reading your thoughts in the posts, but life’s too short to spend time in a SJW clone room.

Not a hospitable place for engaging in ideas.

You should work on your tolerance level.
This sort of thing is why I try to avoid talking to people in real life. I don't care, I just want people like this to go away and never attempt to communicate with me again. There is no narrative here and this guy was never part of the group in the first place. He was an unwanted, uninvited, undesirable interloper who wandered into the wrong place and was rightly rejected as soon as he identified himself.

I'm not the amenable authority, to the contrary, I am the authority that very much wants all the blathering morons to go away, stay away, and never, ever force me to bear witness to their endless attempts to explore the limits of human stupidity.

UPDATE: He's sent another five six emails so far. This is just one of them:
Jesus ---- you won't even allow me to invite Azure to continue the discussion off-site if he wanted...

What objections could you have had worthy of deleting that comment letting Azure know where he could contact me if he wanted to discuss it...?

It was short.  Not a wall of text that might inconvenience the audience.

It used language that can't be considered objectionable -- because the gamma faggot slur that was aimed at me is still up.  I mocked it.

And it was snarky but no more so than the personal attacks you left standing in the thread.

You have to be able to recognize what you did follows the steps you outlined in the book...

And it is a SJW-type mentality in dealing with others.

The only time I can remember having comments deleted and being threatened with banning was on sites run by people on the Left...

Now I'll descend into something childish:  Pot meet kettle...  you're both black....

If you want to be fair, delete all the comments referring to me.  I already deleted the ones I wrote.

1984 it...

Erase all traces.  Make it never have happened.

You have to be able to see how you and the outrage mob just mirrored elements you described in your book....
In case you ever wondered, this sort of thing is why gammas are now banned on sight. I used to wonder why women were so vicious to them, but I don't anymore.

I'm reminded of an old saying about Unix. "Unix is user-friendly. It's just very selective about who its friends are." Multiple variants of the saying exist.

We've dealt with so many shills, blackpillers, and Vox haters over the years that we may now on occasion throw out a few wheat grains with the chaff. Those are the breaks, and it's been a price worth paying. If he really wants to learn, he'll be back after licking his wounds a bit.

The guy was an extraordinary jerk. Okay, if you come into somebody's house and you make a faux pas, then get called out on it, what do you do?

Normal, healthy people would say to themselves, "Uh, oh", and adjust accordingly. Because you want to be a good guest, right? You're not out to cause trouble, right?

Forget about that too often anymore.

Folks come in and throw down their expectations, with a glare in their eye, looking at you.

People are even coming in now with their preferred pronouns on their nametags in places -- and you cannot opt out of this, you must supply your preferred pronoun for your mandatory nametag. And everybody has to keep track of how everybody else is to be called, and woe upon anybody who fails to execute as required.

For all grand talk about die-versity and respecting the viewpoints of others, which everybody knows is a ridiculous lie, all modes of human interaction are strictly controlled. And judged.

They are going to waltz into your house, throw their blue-haired butts down at your dining table, and proceed to call you out for how you did them wrong.

Odysseus had a solution for this.

That's not your "absolute clarity" hat. That's your "pretentious psuedo-philosopher" hat.


Snidely Whiplash wrote:OK. I told him - you know - we can put a point on each side of the door frame and connect a line to them ---- but --- obviously --- there isn't infinite space between the two points...right?

You are correct that you don't understand math. You are incorrect that you have any basis to even think about commenting on it. You're a fucking moron who missed an extremely excellent opportunity to keep his ignorant and frankly stupid trap shut before everyone figured out what a fool he is.


Snidely Whiplash wrote:Iggyb wrote:#54 insults are always the best way to engage in a discussion. How else can a person prove they are absolutely correct...?

I'm not here to discuss your idiotic prattle. I'm here to insult you until you break down or go away. I prefer a full screaming flouncing breakdown, but your going away also achieves my purpose.

Ok, someone is attempting to create a narrative. So far the only direct responses have been Wraithburn and, of course, Snidely. Then Vox intervenes and suggests the commenter stop posting and follows with a ban warning.

Wraithburn wrote:Iggyb wrote:I highlighted the terms that stood out to me in relation to my own thinking and discussions about this in the past.

...and Plato's allegory of the Cave came back to mind.



Of course it did, everything there went completely over your head.

That you're a steaming pule of smug with an inordinate and completely unearned idea that you are somehow, contrary to any and all evidence, the smartest guy in the room? That your lackwit posting of crap like "I question the reality of numbers" reveals to all the world that you've never had a single original thought, nor followed a borrowed thought from premise to conclusion in your entire pathetic intellectual life?

Good thing VD throws them out on their butts. It's probably uncharitable for the rest of us to pile on.

When someone comes into the domain of the author of SJWAL plus numerous supporting blog posts and takes great offense at being labelled a gamma, well for gosh sakes, don't respond like one, that's just confirming the diagnosis and makes every admin here want to throw that commenter out faster.

It's hard thing when one is used to acting defensively to actually consider whether the other party has a cogent point.

So if this fellow is still reading, I'm going to strongly suggest he do the hardest thing he will ever have done in his life: go look in the mirror and develop a sense of genuine humility. Fake won't do, it will be seen through. For those who don't have it, most will never develop it, many who try will fall short, and we see the deleterious results all the time. To develop it is to develop a different pathway to seeing things.

For gammas tightly wound to their own world view which they have to browbeat into everyone around them, that is intolerable and many never move off of that. They go on pointing and shrieking and never understanding why they get no respect. Or why women don't want them around.

I've never seen Vox be unfair towards someone commenting here. He can be harsh in his tone, but he generally gives the person a chance to correct poor behavior. And as you point out, forgive and forget.

Put another way, someone may not like that Vox has told them to shut up. But if they shut up they're not going to be banned. Iggyb just couldn't accept that woah man, what if numbers aren't real??? wasn't a deep thought.

I did enjoy his attempts to keep commenting after being told to stop. Reminded me of the scene from My Cousin Vinny: The next words out of your mouth better be "guilty" or "not guilty"...I think I get the point...No, I don't think you do.

You are so clueless.

Right above the box that you type comments into, there's a link, titled "Rules of the blog."

Did you bother reading them?

Here, let me help you:

And I quote

"1. You will be addressed in the style you choose. If you come in here slinging insults and acting disrespectfully, you will be treated with a contemptuous and derisive disdain that will, based on past experience, probably upset you. ..."

"2. You are expected to back up your assertions, so don't be surprised if you happen to get called on them. If you fail to back up an assertion when called on it, but refuse to retract the statement, understand that we reserve the right to delete the relevant comment and all subsequent comments you attempt to make. ..."

"4. This is not a democracy. Commenting here is a privilege, not a right. If you are instructed not to comment here, for whatever reason, then please go share your unique gems of wisdom somewhere else. There are thousands of blogs out there and perhaps some will value them; we clearly don't. So, just go away, this isn't an appropriate venue for you to work out your personal issues for our entertainment. ..."

"
10. If you have made several comments that lead a moderator to observe you have nothing interesting to contribute to an ongoing discussion, we reserve the right to tell you to stop commenting on that post. A refusal to abide by that decision will lead to a bann."

"11. In general, you will be well-served if you stop to think for thirty seconds and read everything twice before responding to it. It's also wise to ask if your assumptions are correct before launching critical attacks. This blog has been around for 12 years, so the chances are fairly good that your argument was presented and successfully dismissed long before you first formulated your thoughts on the subject. Remember, there are few original thoughts under the sun."

"12. ... Furthermore, if you are one of the small group of persistent anklebiters who insist on making the same tedious and incompetent attacks over and over again, your comments will be deleted."

"14. If you give a moderator reason to believe that you are not interested in honest, straightforward interaction, he will simply spam your comments. Continued attempts to post comments here will be considered harassment and dealt with accordingly. The police have already intervened twice to deal with cyberstalkers harassing this blog and it will not be a problem to identify you and contact your local authorities if necessary."

and lastly

"29. These Rules may in no case be interpreted contrary to the purposes and principles of Vox Day, as solely determined by Vox Day."


There's more, but those are the ones which specifically apply to your demonstrated behavior thus far.

Blogger Garuna August 25, 2019 5:23 AM

Give it up, dude. Everybody gets hit from time to time, whether physically, verbally, or textually. No need to be so melodramatic about it. IIRC you escalated by taking the hits poorly and then threatening to quit the blog, which you didn't even do. Just get over it and be cool.

Oh; and being southern helps a lot, especially from the mountains, but not everyone can be so blessed by God.

65. Iggyb -- "I had a feeling you'd do this."

This is a civilized drawing room for intelligent observation, argument, humour, understanding, and conversation. Learn the rules, read & think before commenting.

Or, if you jump in, as in any big-boy setting, cheerfully take your lumps, and understand your place. You must earn your place, there are no meaningful trophies for just showing up and spouting off.

IggyB, You may have many things to contribute at some point. At the moment-- after how many comments, and e-mails-- all I see is arrogance, outrage, privilege, hurt feelings, and an astonishing capacity to not figure out things, nor take well-meant advice.

This is not a typical online blog or drive-by comment section. Some people have been here for many years; many are well-read, long-time thinkers on various topics; they respect the informed, genuine questioners, and people willing to learn and teach.

Your feelings got hurt by brusque responses. That is ABSOLUTELY not the same as being a real victim who has been hijacked by an SJW mob of Marxist subversives, no matter how much you wish it were.

Reality is real. God is real. Logos (the Incarnate God, Jesus Christ) is the Saviour, but also the structure within creation, reality & reason itself. We must humble ourselves before truth, before what is real, before things which will not bend to our will, or pretense, or rage, or sins, or pride.

It's purpose is that it amuses/serves Vox. That's it.

Vox values truth and learning, so he allows us relatively free reign to discuss his posts, thereby hopefully advancing both. He is a gracious host, but we are here by his choosing, and he can revoke our access at any time for any reason he chooses.

Put another way, someone may not like that Vox has told them to shut up."

And if -- when! -- it hurts? Shut up, sit down, and consider carefully whatever Vox has written, because there's a HUGE lesson in it specifically for you and also for other readers ... {sigh} every d@mned time... that you WILL benefit from once you've managed to put it into action. It ain't easy, but it's VERY worth doing for your own life, not merely for being allowed to stay here at the blog!

Allow me to add: Vox is almost never harsh in his tone on his FIRST warning or answer. Feels that way in gamma-world; also girl-world, but if you put aside your feelings and read calmly; you'll discover he is STILL trying to teach {wince} us how to behave at someone else's party.

When I was very young, in grade school, small business in the south could exclude folks based on any criteria the owner so deemed. I think they called it freedom of association. Later, it spread past business to all aspects of life --- you HAD to associate with those you did not want to associate with.

I've said it before and believe it bears repeating: all three named in the OP are kind, fair-minded folks. Our host, Snidley, Azure treat others as they're treated. Of course they don't take kindly to being talked at, being lied to, being subject to aggression and deflection.

When gammas sperg and try to make it personal with any or all three I now get mad. I've been there, gammas. Any time one catches me one briefly call my attention to x poor subject knowledge, poor morale, then ask for amends, and move on. I don't want to waste their time so I take the bumps and move on. They don't take it personal so why should I? Only if I fight back when I'm in the wrong, which I have done, does it become personal. It's only ever personal to me and it's my choice to make it that way or preferably not. Obviously these people are kind!

I know I can trust their rhetorical opinions in addition to their didactic opinions because of this. They get emotional appeal and that most of it to a large degree is poorly formed and executed.

I have no reason here to believe the gamma. Three agree on the same thing and their interests are divergent enough to conclude that I have a great view of the field. I also know that when they use emotional appeal it's effective and I'm not disgusted on an anatomic level.
