I am the Omega Male!

A long time ago, Aunt B. got caught up in the threshing machine known as Vox Day. Vox Day is some pinhead with a blog and he gets a lot of readers and he declares all kinds of facts, none of which I remember, other than feminists are idiots, liberals are idiots, non-gun-owners are idiots, environmentalists are idiots and that he is an alpha male.

Well, Aunt B. said something feminist-like, as she often does, and Vox Day picked it up and he and his minions took turns shredding what she said along with anyone who dared to come along into their house and defend her. One of our own locals waded in to her defense, Huck if I remember, and finally threw up his hands at the futility of it all.

Locally we have our own little alpha male. Now, I don't waste my time calling out pinheads like this, but this was just too easy. What is most annoying about these people, is they spend their time pointing out how "wrong" everybody else is by using their own convoluted "facts".

Well, our local little alpha male got picked up at NiT yesterday, spouting off about some subject he picked up from an English newspaper. A lively debate followed in the comments. He got going head to head with Lindsey. This is where it became theatre of the absurd. First he defended his grammatical and typographical errors as "writing conversationally." Then he completely set himself up for the takedown.

Here are a few of his comments:

"Take a look at the blog boys. See how long its been around?"

Oh, OK. Since 2004. So what?

"Interestingly enough... of the thousands of people who read my blog every month (you know I've got one of the most widely read local blogs right?), from the 100's of blogs who've blogrolled me . . .

I'm not a better person than you are lindsey.

I'm a better, and more widely read blogger than you are. The difference is staggering."

A "better blogger?" I don't even begin to know what that means. "more widely read"? OK, let's see. His blog is ranked by Technorati at 174,095, with links from 22 blogs. Lindsey's blog is ranked 76,234 with links from 47 blogs. Hell, I'm ranked 65,660 with links from 54 blogs. So I guess he is one of the most widely read local blog except for everyone else. As far as his "thousands of readers" he doesn't have a sitemeter available, so there's no checking it.

That's the thing about these know-it-all, insult-everyone pinheads. They argue with a bunch of bullshit, but occasionally they leave themselves open to be called on it.

That guy calls himself an Alpha Male. By that, I assume he means a leader. A leader leads. A leader doesn't insult everyone he claims to be leading. He or she goes about his or her business and people follow by example. I'm quite sure anyone who brags about how big and hard his blog is, isn't an alpha male.

Self-Proclaimed Alpha-Male is an oxymoron.

Hi there!!

Yes, I agree!! He forgot to put in another known fact, which is, HE'S AN IDIOT!!!

It would appear that his stupidity knows no bounds.

Yeah, very true. Anyone who goes around announcing they are an Alpha male is a complete weenie.

Yes I completely agree he is an Alpha male, he even has a blog harem. He owns guns, he drinks bourbon and rides a dual purpose motorcycle. And he is just cool guy if you ask me.

You know what cracks me up? All of the profanity and ad hominem-laced back patting about how stupid people like Vox and Nate are. Same thing with that post where Nate was going at it. Some of us happen to not be big on mutual masturbation like that, but I will allow us our differences.

Your problem is that you can't even divorce yourself from your own worldview long enough to discuss things that disagree with you.

Hey, there's always a place for the "he's a poopy head" argument.

I notice you didn't pick up the meat of the argument (for obvious reasons), just some of the nit-picky side crap.

Technorati says that does it? Funny... I look at all the other blogs on NiT and I see the same 3 peopel commenting on one or two posts a week.

Yet every post I put up generates comments, and many of them.. check the archives cutie... generate over 100. Some over 200.

Here's a little clue sugarbritches... you don't get that number of comments of no one is reading your blog.

When no one's reading your blog.. it looks like this one.

Love ya!

Ye olde smackdown.

Vox responded to your "post", if you haven't noticed already.
If you're going into a battle of wits with Mr. Day, you better bring some help.

And pack a lunch...

Is Vox Day the guy with the silly hair? Yeah. Sorry to bust out with such an uncalled-for ad hominem (ha), but I pity the fools who take their marching orders from such a fucking colostomy bag.

Watch out for the RenFair rejects who use the term "Ye Olde..." whatever.

They might come after you. And by come after you, I mean make pathetic attempts at retaliation with meaningless statements, unsupportable claims and empty threats.

Three hundred plus comments from the same two dorks about an unrelated topic; boy, that sure is a battle of wits.

Whoop dee do. I can go to Harlem and make stupid comments about white supremacy. It'll get a lot of response, but that doesn't mean I've said anything intelligent.

For the Alpha-males: pissing people off doesn't mean you're right.
