Patreon

It's been over a year. That's a lot of time to think. I'll probably never stop writing, I just won't be doing it here.
Resurrecting the blog, with some other stuff, here:

What made you want to switch to Patreon, Rory?

Anonymous. It seems most bloggers quit over tiny things. There was a comment on one of the last blogs and it was, simply, gibberish. And the person who wrote it was well-meaning and smart and had been indoctrinated to the point that he or she couldn't recognize gibberish when spouting it. I had an existential crisis moment of, "If this is what passes for discourse, I'm done." I turned in my human card and quit writing publicly almost completely.

Gibberish is certainly annoying, but I don't understand why you'd have the expectation that all of the comments you get on the Internet are worth reading.

That seems like setting yourself up for disappointment.

Beyond that, given that you often don't respond to direct questions in the comments anyway...why get invested in them?

I keep checking back to see if the blogs in your blogroll have updated but they're pretty dormant too. Oh well.

I do the same, Kai.

It's pretty unfortunate that Rory and his whole crew, including MacYoung, shut down all public writing as soon as some people started disagreeing with them in comments.

I wonder at what point Rory will post a mea culpa about his "Covid is nothing to worry about, just like these fake crises from the 70s" post. That take aged about as well as Sean Hannity calling this a hoax.

Still no mea culpa about Rory's "Covid is nothing to worry about" posts, Anon, and now we have an entire week where neither Rory nor any of his crew (Marc, Kasey, etc) have taken any stand on the countless instances of police caught on video beating protestors, shooting at pregnant non-protestors in cars, shooting at journalists, pushing a 75 year old man to the ground.

None of you are willing to speak up against your tribe. All of you are cowards.
