Drawn back

In case you haven't heard, there's been some stink in the Manosphere about the aggregator Viva La Manosphere and the person Tucker Max.

Viva La Manosphere has apparently done something verboten: ripping off a long-time Manosphere writer's work on juicing and putting it up on their own website. Almost word-for-word, with just enough variations so that Google doesn't flag them as a duplicate. Deeply unethical, look for them to take a hit fairly soon once the long-timers decide what they are going to do about it.

Tucker Max - there's been a bit of a stink here. It might have been a miscommunication though. We will see. (I've edited this paragraph, giving him the benefit of a doubt.)

Another, slightly less-important item (in comparison to this shit-storm): a Manosphere writer has turned out to be different from how he portrayed himself. I won't go into details: j'accuse sans peur et sans reproché. I will not mention who he is, there are many others who have started the ostracising already.

So, all these things drag me back. More poison, more gravel to shovel. Things are gonna be intermittent and half-assed. Deal with it.
