the nq3x thread is particularly good for finding people who i don't want to have anything to do with.

Agreed. I found it unbelievably offensive.

It read very much like a bunch of bullies throwing fuel on a fire and then stomping around complaining that the people using it to cook better PUT IT OUT NOW, GEEZ WHY DID YOU START THIS FOREST FIRE?

Was it my imagination, or did nq3x (ecrable) hit every square on the bingo card?

Anything he missed, the commenters got. It's been a while since I felt so close to watching a lynch mob form.

Of angry white people out to suppress the uppity underclasses, yes. I know that there are places where dogpiles of "yes, we're so oppressed, we must band together and act" form routinely, but I end not to go to those places. So it was a reminder of how ugly a self-congratulatory group of privilege holders can be.

Gradually it dawns on me just how bad my usage was.

I apologize belatedly to anyone who had any bad time with it. Sorry. I was careless and hyperbolic.

Thank you for realizing. :)

I especially liked the Sh*tterly-esque reference to class. Because no one else on the Internet grew up white and poor!

My 'don't read books by this person ever' list continues to expand. (Fortunately, so does my 'read books by this person' list, from other linkspams.)

Is nq3x an author? Or are the commenters? I can't look at the page anymore because it's making me angry.

I lost track and thought, at first, I was commenting on the forum post. There may well be an author or two in there failing hard, though. "Don't listen to those mean people of color, what do they know about racism?"

Oh, yes! Anyone who wants to read a book can write one. So what the hell are POC complaining about?

He's a white, male author, and he hasn't been published.

I really loved that line of logic. I took notes-- it's going into my novel, I swear.

What's yr policy on removing links if the author asks you to? I ask because of this.

[personal profile] naraht 2009-05-19 07:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Unlike Metafandom, we're leaning towards *not* removing links, simply because the discussion doesn't make sense if the record of what happened isn't preserved. Think of the early stages of the Elizabeth Bear racefail, where it was getting very hard to keep track of things because posts and comments were being deleted left and right. Obviously people can delete or lock posts if they want, but we think it's important to have something pointing to where they were.

[personal profile] fifi 2009-05-19 07:27 pm (UTC)(link)
I agree hard.

Racefail posts are not fanfic meta.

Re: Curiosity killed something or other.

[personal profile] keeva 2009-05-19 07:39 pm (UTC)(link)
On nearly every platform, there are plenty of controls at the user's option to prevent comments from strangers.

For example, on my LJ/DW, all responses NOT from my friends are screened.

That way I can decide if I want to unscreen them and engage, or not unscreen them.

[personal profile] fifi 2009-05-19 07:40 pm (UTC)(link)
I understand yr point, but these are 2 cents you certainly didn't ask for:

I think you shouldn't be willing to remove links.

Wank gets preserved, why not Race imbroglios?

Re: Curiosity killed something or other.

[personal profile] fifi 2009-05-19 07:59 pm (UTC)(link)
In which case, we might make a special list of people who've demanded to have their links removed, and spotlight them even more than linking to a post (which can be locked) would do

Oh, well then. You are certainly made of equal parts of win and awesome. lol Thanks. 8D
