That Explains It - They're Shitfaced

I think I finally figured out why all those psycho-loon commenters spew flotsam all over my blog - they've had several large shots of Jack Daniels. Heh.

Maybe that explains Vox Day insulting liberal Christian SF editors and professional colleagues as he plays the martyred misogynist - maybe he's drunk.

You might want to come see this, as he attacks female SF writers and scientists telling them they don't exist, to their and their husbands' faces, in realtime...

I've heard of Vox Day from another blog, not Patrick's. The guy's a raving lunatic.

I know, I remember you blogging about him last summer, when he was going on about suffrage. The Nielsen Haydens missed it all tho' and only just learned about him via WoC. Now Vox and his minions are insulting just about everybody who's anybody in professional SF blogging, on the thread. It's amazing. VD thinks he won the last rounds vs Pete and Bartholomew and s.z. and everyone. And he *still* doesn't get how stupid it is for someone who's only written fantasy himself, with one historical - and one game tie-in as the utter extent of his "hard sf" writing - to trash fantasy as something fit only for women, and women as incapable of writing "hard" sf! There are faulty syapses there, surely.

You just realized this now that a lot of trolls on the internet are just belligerant drunks? I caught onto that during my first experiences in a newsgroup. haha.

Chloe, if you haven't read that link I posted, read it. It's hysterical. It honestly never occurred to me that the most belligerant trolls were drunk. I thought it was just their natural, sweet personalities. ;)

Yeah, I read that, it is funny.
I even went off on a rant about The Ring. haha.

But seriously, the first thing I thought of when I saw my first flame war - I think in 1998 probably... The first thing that popped into my head was - oh my god, this is like I'm in a neighborhood bar around midnight, and a few people just discovered they don't agree on everything! hahaha.
