I started this account a few weeks ago instead of just posting under my real name, which is what I've done in the past. My identity isn't the best kept secret, but I don't want it associated with Google. And I want to speak my beliefs, which extreme SJWs now characterize as "extreme hate speech."

I get where you're coming from. SJWs are going to try and penetrate the RVF. But at the same time, writing off every "n00b" with a strong opinion is counterproductive. We're not all actually "n00bs", and the focus should be on the quality of the poster's content.

Further, I hope that more are gaining the courage to speak out, even if it's anonymously. Despite having a prominent blog (not focused on masculinity or game), I've lurked for years in the forums. But it's gotten to the point where I feel the need to speak out, strongly, but using my real name would hurt my business.

No one is asking you to post under your real name. We strong advise against it. However, even if you did, I wouldn't change a whole lot. This is a forum about game, travel, women and self-improvement.

If you've blogged prominently about how to cook a mean steak and put up a datasheet, you'd obviously be considered a more trustworthy source due to your blogging reputation and could get away with some controversial remarks about how often to flip the steak while grilling.

However, generally accomplishments in other areas won't influence your reputation here (besides the standard respect given for hard work and a proven desire to succeed), simply because your "status" at the forum only really will come into question if you post something controversial or suspicious. Over the years, we've had guys make shocking claims about topics of conversation and sometimes it has turned out that their claims were in fact completely made up.

When it comes to the topic of game, for example, any guy espousing a gaming system that sounds unrealistic is going to be viewed suspicious, and possibly banned, if his claims are outrageous enough.

However, if the same claims and game suggestions were made by a forum member who has met other members and his proposed techniques have been witnessed in action by other credible members, then that is a very different story. There are cases where that has occurred here and also where the opposite has occurred.

All we are asking of new members is that they take the time to build a reputation here. We simply cannot take your word for it that you are a prominent blogger and a cool guy, especially if your blogging activities have nothing to do with what this forum focuses on.

I personally held back from posting too many game suggestions myself until I'd been repped by some guys who had seem me in action and could speak to my abilities and even now, I'm not trying to school other guys on how to be more alpha with Chinese women.

We're a community of men who have joined the forum to give back. Look for opportunities to contribute value. Drop some valuable datasheets. Meet some forum members. Do that and you won't have to worry about being a noob.
