The Vox Day thread

I've only read SJWs Always Lie. Thought it was excellent. I also generally agree with Vox on politics, especially the importance of ethnic nationalism. On the other hand I find him extremely arrogant, and his viciousness towards "gamma males" and Boomers is off putting. Also ironic, since he does come off as pretty gamma himself, as you noted, and he seems unaware that the younger generations generally consider us Gen Xers to be Boomers too. It makes it very hard to like him, but he's said many times that he doesn't care if anyone likes him, so I guess everyone's happy.

If he didn't care whether anyone likes him, he wouldn't react the way he does to even mild disagreement by calling everyone a "gamma male".
 
Do you think he just bit off more than he could chew or there was genuine deceptiveness? He recently had an update that he was catching up on orders but I have heard before from others that he doesn't deliver on his many promises.
I think it's arrogance and conceit. He lives comfortably as far as I can tell so I don't think he would be trying to rip people off, but his wisdom and management skills don't match his inflated opinion of his own intelligence. I did write to him once about a historical matter that he was ignorant of that he was pontificating about and left a few critical comments on his blog about other things, maybe he was bitter and blacklisted me. Last I checked though the Alt-Hero Forum was dead and I didn't see any updates when I tried searching his blog a while back. Maybe he decided to drop the whole Q project after his self-assured prediction that Trump would "cross the Rubicon" bombed.
 
I would be interested to see if anyone has successfully sued him for breach of contract. Otherwise it sounds like a bunch of haters who don't have a leg to stand on. Vox is the pre-eminent alt-tech guy on the web. Torba might surpass him soon though.
A few hundred bucks isn't worth suing him for, the crowdfunding sites used are gone and all that's left is an email confirmation of the pledge without even a description of what the rewards are, not worth the time. Both Torba and Nick Fuentes have done more in alt-tech than he has. I supported both InfoGalactic and Unauthorized TV. I tried using InfoGalactic but I kept coming across missing pages that Wikipedia had even though it was supposed to mirror the content. I think Vox regrets not starting with social media first, that's probably part of the beef with Torba. I decided to unsubscribe from Unauthorized, but for the life of me I couldn't find the dashboard to cancel my account. I emailed Vox and he replied as if it were obvious. I explained to him that the dashboard or account menu was missing, he never replied. I happened to hear him mention on a stream later that you had to manually add "/dashboard" to the site URL to get to it. That's just amateurish and unprofessional.

Having an onion site as a backup is crucial (the point of onion is to protect the server as much as the client), or even better an urbit planet.

Use the corporate system for whatever you can, I'm not telling people to get off twitter or youtube or whatever, but don't expect it to last and gauge your effort accordingly.

Vox: "As you’ve almost certainly noticed if you’re here, Google has decided to roll the dice and take its chances with the Legal Legion of Evil."

Somehow I doubt that the same people who successfully deplatformed a sitting President are losing sleep over the "Legal Legion of Evil". Vox's narcissistic delusions never fail to amuse. The fact that it took them this long to ban him - long after every other major figure on the right has been censored, banned and deplatformed from every major site - says it all about how seriously they take him as a threat. The timing is interesting, however, because it's almost assuredly related directly to his recent anti-vaccine posts. Years of ranting about John Scalzi, pontificating about gamma males, pushing Qanon conspiracies and selling comic books was beneath anyone's notice. But as soon as he started criticizing the vaccine he got the ax. Coincidence? Nope.

Yea, I did cringe when I read this. After all, nothing happened after his YouTube channel was nuked.

Voxday is back online :

Vox Day@voxday
1h·
Please note the blog is available at https://www.voxday.net

It may interest you to know that the blog was never down. We've been running multiple live backups for years; the one we attached and updated yesterday 45 minutes after Google blocked the Blogspot site has been live since 2017. While we kept the posts up to date, the sidebars were four years behind, hence the need for the update.

Ignore the current URL location. That can, and will, change at any time, since we now have servers under our direct control to which we will ultimately move the blog. The backup sites exist because they long predate Arktoons, UATV, and even Infogalactic. We will turn the blog comments back on, but not right away since we are too busy to moderate them right now.

We have been waiting a long time for Google to cross certain legal lines, and now they appear to have finally done so. I will keep everyone apprised of how the situation proceeds over the course of the comings weeks and months.

AFAIK, Trump never played ball like the LLoE did. Trump could have struck some fear into those people, but he never even tried. There's a big difference in the effect you can have if you just make an effort. When you announce to your ostensible enemies that the most you plan on doing about them is "monitoring the situation," it's little wonder they eventually work up the nerves for bigger attacks on you. Trump never punched back. The LLoE does.

Given Vox's penchant for bluster and exaggeration, the renowned "Legal Legion of Evil" is probably comprised of one guy who types up strongly worded letters, which Vox then carefully edits, seals with his Dark Lord signet ring and then sends off the target of his ire. Remember when he threatened to sue Gab and Andrew Torba after anonymous trolls on Gab started making fun of Vox and his wife? Of course, nothing came of it. Just like nothing ever comes of any of Vox's legal threats. Because, just like with everything else he does, Vox ultimately fails to deliver anything of substance. Then he just starts talking about the next project he's working on and begins raising money from his credulous followers all over again. I have no idea how people fail to notice this, much less keep falling for it over and over.

He sued Patreon and won, so did several of his backers:

Vox absolutely did not win. In fact, due to their incompetence and arrogance, Vox and Owen Benjamin ended up getting 90 of Owen Benjamin's biggest fans (who personally signed onto the arbitration at Vox and Owen's suggestion) in legal hot water themselves. Vox was forced to settle and run away with his tail between his legs. See here:

This should be obvious because if Vox had achieved anything remotely resembling an actual victory, you can be sure he would be shouting it from the rooftops. But he isn't. He's just quietly promoting his latest grift to his credulous followers: leatherbound books.

Whoops. I follow Vox Day's Blog. But, I have not seen any of his Darkstreams, in over a year. So, I am not in the loop, really. From a bit of research, it definitely looks like he did not come out on top. Still, it takes a pair to go after Patreon. Most people would just roll over and die, if kicked off their platform.

Anyways, it is a relaxing Sun. (Sabbath) and almost time for church. 1630251979637.png

It looks like neither side really won (which is often a "victory" according to the lawyers). None of us will probably see the settlement document. Patreon (and other companies, like Amazon) suddenly realized that mass arbitration is not a wise move if hundreds of people suddenly file (each case is charged a flat fee). Is that really a victory worth popping the champagne corks?

I could never understand the wisdom of (1) using a (((company))) who serves Satan, then (2) suing when they retaliate against you. Examples: Patreon and the Bears; Vox and Google (no lawsuit yet). I think they objectively had both a legal and ethical reasons to sue. However, both the corporate world and the legal world is run by the Enemy. I don't think we should be a doormat, but isn't it wiser to not meet the enemy at the battlefield of their choosing (or which they control).

Whatever the future holds for us, the only thing that I can state with certainty is this: our future is not part of the System (Globohomo). Each of us needs to make plans to operate independently of the System. We don't need to look to leaders (like Vox or Owen, etc...), but only to God and ourselves. From this perspective there is no leadership to corrupt or bribe. Collectively, our actions will operate like a leak of water in the Evil Globohomo dam--gradually, then all at once, the dam will collapse.
