Mailvox: No Gamma Zone

A.D. honestly wants to know why his very important comments and questions are spammed on sight.
A.D. commented on "What made the Boomers boom?"
How 'bout you at least explain to me why you refuse to post my honest, well-intentioned follow-up questions to commenters, you incessantly-overcompensating fascist sissy-fags...??!

Certainly. VP has a strong No Gamma Comments Allowed policy. Because your previous comments were not only annoying and self-serving, but confirmed that you are a Gamma, you are no longer permitted to comment here. 

I trust this honest response answers his honest, well-intentioned question. His honest curiosity being satisfied, no doubt he will go away and cease attempting to comment here. Right?

Right?

Blogger Angels1978 June 14, 2021 1:47 PM  

I'm amazed that the public example of a gamma getting flogged for asking such questions does not would deter such questions from being asked.

Blogger Peter C June 14, 2021 1:50 PM  

The Dark Lord I'm sure is taking perverse pleasure in all the newly come Gammas commenting into the Abyss and getting skewered by a thousand lances, their blood drip-dripping and getting absorbed into the skull throne, to better sustain the owner.

Wall of text incoming in 5...4...3...

Blogger ErictheRed June 14, 2021 2:04 PM  

I am still trying to learn more about the SSH, but it seems that a lot of Sigmas (I know there are not that many of them), do not start out as Sigmas. My view at 30,000 feet is that most Sigmas do not really emerge until early adulthood. They may start out as Gammas--or even Omegas. But unlike most Gammas, they realize that the way they are doing things is just not working. So, they start working out, change their style of dress, learn skills, and make attempts to approach women. They probably have to learn a lot of lessons the hard way, but the successful ones eventually get there. Most Gammas just continue to wallow in self-pity about how the world should treat them better. Sigmas I think are more realistic about how the world actually works, and adjust accordingly.

Am I even close to the mark? Or do I just not get it?

Blogger Dr. J June 14, 2021 2:11 PM  

Alas - that we should be thusly deprived of this gamma's artful articulations - a veritable Leo Tolstoy of blog posting. His unparalleled brilliance evaporating into the ether to our eternal regret. History will remember you, VD, and weep!

And because these days it's necessary - /sarcasm

Blogger VD June 14, 2021 2:12 PM  

Gammas are not going to become Sigmas. They don't want to. They care intensely about social hierarchy and they want to be Alphas, or at the very least, Bravos.

Blogger Andy June 14, 2021 2:19 PM  

Sigmas as former Gammas?! That's like saying James Bond was a John Scalzi in his earlier years.

The road from Gamma to Bravo runs through Delta.

I was born in 56. I’ve spent over 40 years in my insurance business and 99 percent of boomers failed at it.
Also every boomer had already spent all of what there parents where leaving them in the small brain before the
funeral was over.
Just about every funeral I’ve ever attended I was asked by someone how long until the money would be distributed
I’ve watched hard earned money disappear within months.
Me Me Me.

Blogger Doom June 14, 2021 2:22 PM  

I have always laughed when someone suggests someone should try to become a sigma. If you really want to go that way, just go for alpha. It's easier, and they really will brush your rock and roll hair if you make it... so long as you fit the bill. Sigmas do their own thing, like it or not, and most don't even want their hair brushed, usually. Or... at least... more passively. Not ego stroking, more... something else. A pat on the back type. If then, and only by those who actually understand whyfor. As long as there aren't hidden agendas involved, or it isn't some kind of come on of one sort or another.

Blogger Snidely Whiplash June 14, 2021 2:24 PM  

Having spammed one of his comments, I never even got to "is this ass-clown banned?" His comment was both a self-serving lie and Gamma as hell.

Blogger FacelessBro June 14, 2021 2:26 PM  

You'd think he would know exactly why his comment gets deleted. Given how you've explained in every way possible what content gets deleted and what doesn't.

Blogger AsunderBear June 14, 2021 2:30 PM  

If I remember correctly, the best a gamma can become is a delta.

Blogger Snidely Whiplash June 14, 2021 2:31 PM  

Sigmas are Omegas who learn how to handle women.

Would a difference be that a Sigma contributes to inform in hopes of changing things for the better, but doesn't care about leading the movement, while the Gamma contributes to be seen and promoted?

The Sigma would be happy that people responded to the truth, even without getting credit, while the gamma would be pissed that he didn't get recognized.

Blogger Factory June 14, 2021 2:52 PM  

@18

I think you hit the nail right on the head. Sigmas, at most, aspire to be the power behind the Throne. Sigmas despise 'recognition' most of the time, shun public acclaim, and refuse to be 'the life of the party' - most likely because Sigmas are nearly universally Introverts.

Blogger Jack Amok June 14, 2021 2:55 PM

"Better" is debatable. Better for the Sigma perhaps, not necessarily for everyone. The trait that Alphas and Sigmas share is the ability to look at the world and think "how can I alter things to get what I want?" while Beta/Delta/Omega think "how can I fit in the get what I want" (with Omegas quickly deciding it's hopeless). Gammas look at the world and think "how can I get someone to change things so I get what I want?"

Blogger SciVo June 14, 2021 2:56 PM  

Nothing is stopping him from starting his own blog. Well, except for the part where nobody would read it.

But even then, it would still serve the valuable function of allowing him to get all those Very Important Comments out of his system. If he were even semi-normal, mere expression would be enough.

Blogger binks webelf June 14, 2021 3:12 PM  

But.. but.. MY wall of text is the special secret insider knowledge which will set right All The Things! How dare anyone ban & delete such perfection?!

Blogger Bryce June 14, 2021 3:21 PM  

Well-intentioned? He might as well have added polite in there, too. And what's with the "'bout"? Is he throwing that in so people will see he's just a regular guy?

On the topic of sigmas, I think I remember Vox saying they are often former omegas. I could be wrong though.

Blogger BillFromDaytona June 14, 2021 3:23 PM

Agreed.

It wouldn't have to be better from a moral point of view. Just better according to the Sigma's or Gamma's POV.

Blogger Prof. Spudd June 14, 2021 6:22 PM  

Three groups of men orthogonal to rank: Leader, Follower, and Loner. Leaders and Followers are within the hierarchy, and Loners outside it.

The top-ranked Leaders, Followers, and Loners are the Alpha, Bravo, and Sigma, respectively.

Deltas are the middle-ranked.

Gammas are the bottom-ranked, damaged, and/or immature Leaders and Followers, and Omegas the Loners.

Blogger Teleport me off this rock June 14, 2021 6:23 PM  

I tried, but I just can't imagine feeling so much emotional distress over something as ephemeral and inconsequential as internet comments. Can so many people really have nothing else to concern themselves with in life?

Your last sentence nails it. Sigma's can't actually exist without stoicism. That's the secret. Logos(logic), and Ethos(ethics) applied properly will always lead to Stoicism.

Very correct, gammas will never be able to apply stoicism to themselves, or should I say apply themselves to stoicism? Either way, gammas are psychologically wired like women, bravo+ is the best they can do, and that's with herculean effort.

Blogger Seeingsights June 14, 2021 8:19 PM  

@6

I think that if one has questions about the psycho-sexual hierarchy, one should first match real or even fictional individuals for each type. Doing such a match will help in answering questions about each type.

For example:

Alpha: Tom Brady, Donald Trump
Sigma: James Bond
Gamma: Woody Allen

Which type usually has a hot woman around him? Alphas and Sigmas. Gammas, no

Which type takes a position to lead others? Alphas, yes. Sigmas, no.

Which type does his own thing? Sigmas.

Which type shows self-confidence? Alphas and Sigmas.


Blogger VD June 14, 2021 8:25 PM  

Using real examples probably helps. Putin is definitely a Sigma. I suspect Xi may be as well. The more I learn about Xi, the more he sounds like the Patrician Vetinari from Ankh-Morpork.

Blogger Oliver Murray June 14, 2021 8:43 PM  

Strange, reserved, unsocial bird,

Flitting, peering 'mid the leaves,

Thy lonely call a twofold word

Repeated like a soul that grieves—

"Kou-kou," "Kou-kou"—a solemn plaint

Now loud and full, now far and faint.


A joyless wingèd anchorite,

Or hapless exile in the land,

Oft intoning in the night

A rune I fain would understand—

"Kou-kou," "Kou-kou," a boding cry,

When night enfolds the earth and sky.


With eye and motions of the dove,

And throat that swells and heaves,

Thy life seems quite untouched by love,

Or by the spell that passion weaves.

"Kou-kou," "Kou-kou," a doleful note,

From out a smooth and dovelike throat.


Thy nest a little scaffolding

Of loosely woven boughs,

Compared with nests of birds that sing,

A hut beside a house.

"Kou-kou," "Kou-kou," unsocial sound,

When blithe and festive calls abound.

- John Burroughs

I am still blind to these things. I'm halfway through, if a long, process of dying. Still, you'd think by now, I'd see it from seeing it get burned here so often. Which makes me paranoid. If I can't see it in others... I know who else I could be missing it in. Meh. Screw it. Besides, I enjoy my paranoia. I... have been banned before, but I didn't do anything but go away. Until I came back. *grins*

Blogger Thomas James Foster June 14, 2021 10:13 PM  

Burroughs is riffing off the great Shakespeare, only uglier and with less common feeling. This is his matter,

When icicles hang by the wall
And Dick the shepherd blows his nail
And Tom bears logs into the hall
And milk comes frozen home in pail,
When blood is nipp'd and ways be foul,
Then nightly sings the staring owl,
Tu-whit;
Tu-who, a merry note,
While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

When all aloud the wind doth blow
And coughing drowns the parson's saw
And birds sit brooding in the snow
And Marian's nose looks red and raw,
When roasted crabs hiss in the bowl,
Then nightly sings the staring owl,
Tu-whit;
Tu-who, a merry note,
While greasy Joan doth keel the pot.

I used to say that it takes all types [of men] to run an empire. I stopped saying that after I realized that I was surrounded by what you Vox Day described as "Gammas." I had not noticed that the traits that annoyed me were in fact part of an ass-wipe archetype.

Blogger Shane Bradman June 15, 2021 4:51 AM  

Is "fascist" supposed to be an insult? Mussolini, the most famous fascist, is in heaven, if the Italian mystic Edvige Carboni is to be believed. Although I couldn't tell you whether or not the boomers have made it into heaven.

"Power behind the throne" perfectly describes George Bush Sr. Perfect example of an evil Sigma. Damn, a Sigma with no conscience at all can wreck a lot of havoc around the world.

@Teleport me off this rock-

Most people feel the way you feel about internet comments most of the time. But I can see how some take them personally sometimes. We can all get carried away.

Emotions are senseless and don’t know from context. Unfortunates often find themselves feeling as though they’re naked in front of a crowd instead of communicating through a medium they could switch off any time they choose. Probably because we really ought to be socializing in person. That’s the human way.

Also, emotions work differently in other people’s bodies, I’ve discovered. What’s nothing to me is the world to others.

Blogger Grandpa Lampshade June 15, 2021 9:01 AM  

Pro tip: If you actually care that much about whether or not your comments get posted...let's just say you should consider that a red flag

Blogger MrNiceguy June 15, 2021 5:59 PM  

Anyone who asks about becoming a sigma is really interested in being perceived as a sigma, and will therefore never be one.

Blogger Th3 J3st3r June 16, 2021 2:30 AM  

Did he go through the trouble of using an apostrophe which doesn't add ease to his word, or did Vox add that to make him look retarded?
That's how you know he's roleplaying; "'bout".
