Mailvox: a convention, converged

The lesson, as always, is this: don't ever take McRapey's advice:
Arisia is a mid-sized sf and fantasy convention in Boston which has been taken over by SJW's despite some of us attempting to resist them. This year's GOH was John Scalzi who triggered several changes to the code of conduct.

However, the con chair wasn't satisfied was that. She insisted that every attendee sign a printed copy of the COC, even though it required 5 point type to fit on a single page. The con cobbled together new registration software and procedures to fulfill this requirement, but there were many problems with it. The registration line reached nearly 3 hours though its peak last year had been about 20 minutes.

Furthermore, faced with this fiasco, the con chair still was unwilling to back off the requirement to expedite registration.
Prediction: attendance at the conventions that have adopted Codes of Conduct that affect the experience in any way will gradually fall off. I know that in the Django project, the amount of emails and posts have already fallen off considerably, because everyone is, quite rightly, afraid that saying anything will make them a target of SJW attack.

This is why you don't permit their entryists in the first place, and why you certainly don't give into their demands. Convergence always eventually kills the converged organization unless it can latch onto a host that will financially sustain it.

Arisia forbids abusive, insulting, harassing, and / or intimidating behavior which includes, but is not limited to, stalking, physical or verbal intimidation, discriminatory comments, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention.

Here are some of the legbeards who fret about all that unwelcome sexual attention they're showered with:

Kris 'nChanter' Snyder - Con Chair

Dale Myer-Curly - Communications, Member Services, Buffet Table Cleaner-upper

Mink Rose - Diversity (!) Nagger

Even by the low SMV standards of conventions, I'm guessing spontaneous mass conversions to homosexuality are a bigger risk than these wildebeests being sexually harrassed.

Not only does Django have a Code of Conduct, but they even have an SJW-heavy Politburo, or rather, a "Code of Conduct Committee":

The Code of Conduct Committee deals with violations in the Django Code of Conduct.

Committee Members:

Chair: Lynn Root
Amber Brown (Hawkowl)
Paul Hallett
Emily Karungi
Greg Turner
Elena Williams

@4...
It's painful to look at those pics. They seem to go out of their way to force it down peoples' optic nerves.

These women have grown up knowing they are ugly. They see it each time they look in the mirror. Because of it they have come to hate themselves, hate society, and hate God. Now they're going to stick it to society and especially to men who, if they make the slightest remark or action that could be misconstrued as remotely sexual, will become the objects of retribution by these ugly women who have deliberately wormed their way into positions of power.

At the core of the SJW movement are ugly harridans. Any men are just weakling hangers-on with their own set of problems who recognize a pity party when they see one. The entire movement is a political excuse for personal vendettas.

Blogger VD January 24, 2016 6:34 AM  

We're going to have an Open Brainstorm this week. Possibly as soon as Monday; I'll invite the VFM first today, then everyone else can register if there is room. We're going to discuss my plans for addressing the SJW invasion of tech and I'll explain how those few with the ability to take leadership can do so.

We have to get these things forked before the SJWs render doing so impossible. That will be their top priority once they take control. Don't fool yourself into thinking they won't destroy the entire concept of OSS in their attempt to retain control.

If you are deeply involved in an OSS project and you think you might have the ability to lead a fork, email me.

Spot on. It's difficult to find a SJW who isn't a social/sexual reject.

Looking at these people who run Arisia is like rummaging through a human garbage pile of mental illness and genetic dead ends.

By the way, I think another thing to consider might be "co-opting" projects by proposing NCoC (or CoM or whatever) first. As evidence piles up to these parasites' destructive nature, this could avoid the need to fork at all. There are no projects I think I could handle leading, but there are several I follow, and could post something like that to the list. I guess I'll go and do that now (:-).

Does anything good ever come from these discussions? Even if the result is no change or the NCoC, they suck a lot of time and energy from the people who are actually doing stuff. Better to impose one if you can, and guide the ensuing discussion, including banning any obstreperous objectors.

To help that, for all the dialectical nerds in the project, a well documented example of a project seriously suffering from a bad CoC would be good. And of course include some good rhetoric with it.

This could get interesting with pre-registrations.  Arriving at the door with a pre-paid membership and being presented with a demand to submit to a ridiculous T&C contract is more or less prohibited by well-established contract law; once the con has accepted payment they can't demand that any terms and conditions be added or changed.  There's also the doctrine of detrimental reliance.

It would take someone with more legal chops than I have to get an injunction against such nonsense, but I'm sure it could be done.  Being subject to contempt of court for their SJW foolishness would be a huge letdown for the power-mad legbeards and might make them direct their efforts elsewhere.

@36: There's a convicted American domestic terrorist who's life nowadays seems to mostly be "legal trolling" AKA lawfare against various figures on the right, since he discovered the gullibility of the left to help fund this while in Federal prison by claiming to have sold marijuana to a VP candidate (yep, he was also convicted of that and impersonating a federal agent while in high school).

Not mentioning his name since he has an alert set for that (search for S p e e d w a y bomber if you want more), he's caused his targets quite a bit of grief and hassle, has gamed his state's system of protective orders to get them thrown in jail, it's all rather chilling, along with higher level things we hear of like the Wisconsin John Doe raids. Except for the fact that courts tend to be amenable authorities for the left, I see no reason for combative people on our side with a lot of time on their hands not to return the favor.

Anonymous WillBest January 24, 2016 10:46 AM  

The primary problem with legal action is it takes too long. If you show up at the door and realize what is going on, its already too late. By the time you get an emergency TRO the convention is over. You need a min of 5 days and probably closer to 14. And that is presuming you can do the legal stuff yourself and want to front the couple hundred in filing fees and process serving.

I'll make one suggestion for those thinking about lawfare: Don't target the convention. Target the *hotel* and make sure they know it is *because* of the convention.

Most hotels are more willing to dump an event than go to court, especially if the event is small or already troublesome, and regularly finding a new host site is more of a pain in some ways because it's a more direct cost in time, effort and possibly money.
