They've been busy

It's great to see how David Lambert and Alexandra Hollingshead, among others, have been so totally absorbed with reading all my books over the holidays....


It's a good thing Goodreads banned the Rabid Puppies group or people might engage in an organized effort to attack authors by lowering their ratings!

This is why we need to establish non-converged cultural institutions and ruthlessly work to keep the SJWs out of them. SJWs will always stack the deck and do their very best to use whatever power they can obtain, be it petty or significant, in the interest of forcing social justice on society. And anyone who challenges their Narrative will not only be attacked, but silenced, and stripped of their ability to defend themselves or respond in kind, to the extent that the SJWs are able to do that.

“Society should treat all equally well who have deserved equally well of it, that is, who have deserved equally well absolutely. This is the highest abstract standard of social and distributive justice; towards which all institutions, and the efforts of all virtuous citizens should be made in the utmost degree to converge.”
 —John Stuart Mill, Utilitarianism, 1861

Fortunately, efforts on several fronts are already underway, and your help will be needed on some of them. We'll be having the January Brainstorm as soon as I get a time and date from the panelist I've selected, and we'll be discussing the current state of the project I've chosen as my top priority as well as the panelist's upcoming project.

It's going to be short notice, so be prepared for that.

UPDATE: By the way, note that for all their posturing, SJWs clearly hate it when you call out their reviews for the ideological trash that they are.
I do suspect you're a fake profile, much like some of the other lice which crawled all over my reviews of Day's stuff.
Always hit back twice as hard. Remember, they are fragile creatures of little accomplishment; in many cases these attack "reviews" are their only sources of pride.

OT: Peter McLoughlin of the Law and Freedom Foundation has just issued a long report of 333 pages called “Easy Meat” that describes the abuse of children in England on an industrial scale, all by Muslim invaders:

Easy Meat: British Report Warns Againt Vigilante Justice

The report is deeply disturbing because it suggests that the safety of the elites may be at stake:

anger is going to spread as awareness of this crime spreads. Denial and damage limitation won’t work any more. It is hard to think of something more calculated to incite public violence than the targeting of native girls for rape by an immigrant population. The use of inter communal rape in the most savage territorial conflicts testifies to its perception as a weapon, and the fear of it evokes the most primal instincts. And this is the basis for our plea to our civil authorities to stamp out this crime by any lawful means: if the suffering of the victims can’t motivate you, then consider the threat to your grip on power.

entropy is the nature of this world. Whether your phoenix attempt works or not is one thing, but the cyclic nature of order and disorder is as old as time. This cycle may even be the "the turning sword that guards to garden of Eden". In either case, do what you must, but all men of faith must know that it is only by God's command that the order-disorder-order cycle will stop.

I am not attempting to discourage, only commenting.

Pretty sure those assclowns can't read at a high enough level to have finished any of your fiction works, Vox. As usual, SJW double standards abound.

The taste of victory will be sweet.

I doubt the SJW even read Rape Rape's books, and Scalzi probably only sells to neutrals who could care less or are ignorant of his gamma idiocy.

So if we get them to shout their SJW virtue signals louder the neutrals will hear the craziness and drift away. Boycott Tor

Apparently, of the hundreds of books he claims to have actually read, David Lambert has never encountered one he considered mediocre. The few he's given one star, he hasn't read. Everything else gets five. What are the odds? The moral of the story: SJWs Always Lie!

Blogger Mr.MantraMan January 12, 2016 7:17 AM  

I can basically come to the conclusion that Alexandra could be asked, "Where did the shitlord not touch you?" She has Heany's "Beowulf" as a favorite read, that is hardly SJW virtue porn.

And I get a kick out of the Diaz fellow and his racial rant, god damn I really would like to be able to bottle whiteness for insecure morons like him.

From David Lambert's Goodread page:

"FAVORITE GENRES
Children's, Erotica, Fantasy, Gay and Lesbian, Philosophy, Science, Science fiction, pornography, glbt, bisexual, queer-studies, science-fiction-romance, and hard-science-fiction"

I think you will be disappointed in "hard" science fiction, David.

fool, faint praise is always the most damning. He could have written in a have dozen three star ratings and given luke warm tacit acknowledgement of a few points poorly made. Those reviews always put people off buying a book. Violent opposition to you Vox at FundiesSayTheDarnestThings is the one and only reason I've heard of you, and consequently lit up to many of your arguments.

As far as I can see the only way to destroy the Hegelian Dialectic is to travel orthogonal to it. If the MSM is giving options A and B, then the solution is NOT between them. Invent C. It's seeing. The way out.

I like this - further encourage their own SJW nuttiness to drive off those who don't think about SJW claims too deeply - or even better, get the "neutrals" to think critically about SJWs. We need to be in the foreground pointing out the contradictions to those who can be swayed ... "Hey, why should you listen to the SJWs who claim Western Civilization oppresses women but turns a blind eye to the real oppression of Islam? Does that make sense to you?" Then SJWs become more vocal in response, and keep the cycle going.

As an added benefit, the SJWs hopefully rip themselves apart into fractured and isolated groups trying to "out-virtue-signal" each other. They really can't help to do otherwise - it is a mindset of envy and spite.

There is a good chance of that. It's what manginas do.

Poor guy, he is 50 years old, living in a country that is on the express elevator to cultural suicide, swamped in leftist/collectivist propaganda. He really didn't have a chance without some sort of role model in his youth, and the chances of that happening where he is was slim.

We should pity him.

"This is why we need to establish non-converged cultural institutions and ruthlessly work to keep the SJWs out of them."

Isn't that what Conservapedia tried to be? They wanted to become an unpozzed alternative to one of the most important sources of information online; they turned into a troll-ridden laughingstock. I'm not sure how this could be avoided...

(...I do note that, whatever other problems it has, the same did not happen to Metapedia. They're hated, they're vilified, but for the most part the SJW's seem to leave them alone.)

Yes. But there is an important difference. I am a very good game designer. I have literally decades of experience anticipating trolls and griefers.

The last comment is hilarious.

Perhaps I can persuade Aaah to read at least 25% of this book. Would that make the naysayers happier?

I did a word count on the book, and in total it comprises 61,723 words.

Further word counts from the book gave me the following data:
"the" - used 3376 times.
"and" - used 1573 times.
"in" - used 994 times.
"but" - used 264 times.
"at" - used 228 times.
"is" - used 866 times
"or" - used 301 times
"if" - used 200 times
"by" - used 340 times
"to" - used 2130 times
"of" - used 1711 times
"any" - used 128 times
"a" - used 1240 times
"my" - used 129 times
"he" - used 223 times
"not" - used 392 times
"than" - used 187 times
"Scalzi" - used 60 times
"SJW" - used 670 times

Those words add up to a grand total of 15,561, which makes up 25.21% of the book.

It would be very easy to create a manuscript that uses the exact same words (in the quantities noted) as listed above, and port it to a text-to-speech app. Then listen to it as you nod off to sleep, and you can honestly say that you've read 25.21% of the book.

No more complaints of "how dare you not read the book" on your review, as you've demonstrably read more than 1/4 of it.

Even better news: your version will be vastly more enjoyable than the one I read.

I wonder how long Wikipedia can continue to operate. It seems like every third time I go there they are hat in hand bumming for money.

An alternative would need to have a "politically neutral" name, only accept edits from verified (not simple email either) users - i.e. non-gift card credit card verification. To top it off a ruthless contribution policy as suggested by the Supreme Dark Lord. To top it off you then register as a charity in a 1st world country where corporate sponsers can dump some money to get tax credits and you have a more sustainable financial model. Then you need people to bum money from companies (where they get a tangible benefit from helping you) versus parasite users. I.e. a proven charity model... not the populist driven you get from Wikipedia of everyone pitching in for the common good when I can use it for free without consequence.

I'm definitely interested in a Goodreads alternative. I've used it since 2010 to track my reading during the year, but with their recent ban on RP, I'm ready to jump ship.

Not officially a VFM, but I'm ready to help where I can.

Of course not. Nothing you do except backing down and knocking it off will make any difference. Bryan, you didn't even know what the ad hominem fallacy is, so you should probably recognize that you are in over your head here. You're trying to play the usual game of word-lawyering and failing to grasp that it is totally irrelevant. You've read SJWAL, so you should know that your attempts to posture and spin the Narrative simply aren't going to work here.

It's very simple; it's a numbers game. You Goodreads SJWs have the amenable authority and against that I have several thousand VFM and Dread Ilk. You can either back down and stop taking shots at me and mine, or deal with the fact that we will come after you, shoot back twice as hard, and force you to deal with the consequences for as long as we choose.

That's how it works. That's how it works every single time. Trying to spin and reframe and gain the upper hand is the way hundreds of critics have tried to play it over the last 15 years, and it has never worked for them. And it won't work for you or Banillah.

That is the only justice they could see.

Beowulf is the kind of mane that would punch her in the face, so of course feminists want him.

did you miss the word after it, all 3 combined probably make his favorite genre

I wonder how many reviews which consist of "I read the title, what a crappy book" will stay up. I mean, I read the title, it's not like I read 0%!

This really is like that passage in Perelandra when Ransom just keeps getting pestered. Ransom...Ransom...Ransom...

Anonymous Shut up rabbit January 12, 2016 11:21 AM  

@6. Nick S
It is indicative of the SJW's quintessential narcissism: just the fact that they read a book makes it superlative because they would never, ever read anything that was less than wonderful.

As noted above, they probably never read a single line of any of them but if they did read books, this is the kind of book that would be graced by their reading.

The 1-star reviews are drive-by virtue-signaling of the badthink books their "friends" are whining about, also never read a single word.

I've been wondering if perhaps we need some sort of system to coordinate operations. This would let us do things like review Goodreads, go rabbit hunting, and such without needing to coordinate on their platforms. Why advertise yourself by joining a Rabid Puppies group when we could talk on a different platform that is owned by one of the Ilk instead.

If there is any interest, I'd be willing to setup and finance such a hub myself.

Seriously, if the point is to be able to see how books are reviewed, and the reviews are stuffed full of nonsensical horseshit, what's the point of using that service? No Point, and therefore, the SJW Convergence is complete.

> We should pity him.

Sometimes Ayn Rand says it best:

"He had never felt this before - not when Henry Cameron collapsed in the office at his feet, not when he saw Steven Mallory sobbing on a bed before him. Those moments had been clean.

But this was pity - the complete awareness of a man without worth or hope, this sense of finality, of the not to be redeemed. There was shame in this feeling - his own shame that he should have to pronounce such a judgement upon a man, that he should know an emotion that contained no shred of respect.

This was pity, he thought, and then he lifted his head in wonder. He thought that there must be something terribly wrong with a world in which this monstrous feeling is called a virtue."

It's been noted before, by both myself and others, that many of these people are have actual mental health issues and are in need of constant medication. Attacking them back will, in many cases, be enough to drive them offline completely.

Anonymous IndecisiveEvidence January 12, 2016 5:58 PM  

You think that's bad? Reread their review terms. NOTHING gets a review removed. That rule about attacks in authors? Just less likely to show on the front page. Only the admins decide what constitutes removal.

I don't know if that was changed recently but it's what I took away from it.

Yes, the convergence has them. But if nothing else, it's practice for working within SJW systems. As VD has said, these are weak people playing weak games.
