This thing is awesome. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 16:43, 6 June 2016 (UTC)

Couldn't agree more... Laurogeita Hamabost (talk) 17:37, 6 June 2016 (UTC)
I concur this is quite incredible Bubba41102The place where you can scream at me 13:19, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

What's the QR code point to? - David Gerard (talk) 08:19, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I love the way this works perfectly just selecting from a list of nouns - David Gerard (talk) 14:53, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

I will probably regret asking, but where's "Vibrant" from? - David Gerard (talk) 23:06, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Who is that and what does vibrant mean in that context? Laurogeita Hamabost (talk) 15:50, 8 June 2016 (UTC)


This isn't just manosphere stuff. Note that a lot of the words are wikilinked, which should IMO do the job for explanations. (Possibly we could do with an alt-right glossary, but I'm not going to write it.) - David Gerard (talk) 18:00, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

Considering the vast amount of hilarious terms that are actually in use by the alt-right, I support the concept of an alt-right glossary. Reverend Black Percy (talk) 21:35, 8 June 2016 (UTC)

LF poster[edit]

This one is a conspiracy theory actually held by the current neoreactionary subculture: that everything bad in their lives is literally a consciously-pursued conspiracy of people from the long-dead Laissez-Faire board on SomethingAwful. If we ever have an SA article again it would warrant mention. Very rough writeup here. Nydwracu and St. Rev in particular have been going off about it a lot - David Gerard (talk) 23:44, 12 June 2016 (UTC)

And as for Ghazi stuff, I'd certainly add "Gawker" to the Cuck-o-tron, everyone sympathetic to the Reddit reactionary paedophile subculture hates Gawker with the fire of a thousand suns - David Gerard (talk) 23:45, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
Wait, the neoreactionaries think that Laissez-Faires promoters are conspiring against them? Aren't they all on the same page as far as economics are concerned? Or does some anarcho-capitalist camp clash with the neoreactionaries' ultra-rigid moral vision? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 23:49, 12 June 2016 (UTC)
LF started as a SA forum for Ron Paul fans and transmuted into a place for leftists, despite the name. As in any good Internet shitfight, the details are both obscure and inane. Fuzzy has a bit of a point, but it's a conspiracy theory (which I've since branded "Lowtax's basilisk") that is actually alive and well amongst the neoreactionary subculture - David Gerard (talk) 10:04, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
Fascinating, as always, David. The name has a good ring to it - obviously not an unconcious nod to Roko's basilisk, I suppose. Would you mind expanding more on what (the theory named) Lowtax's basilisk actually is? Imagine that you were writing a short summary for an RW article on it. What might it say? (If thinking like that helps at all). I ask because I'm genuinely trying to grasp this all, but I'm not quite there yet, partially because - as you point out - the whole story, from start to finish, is propped up entirely by details that sure are both obscure and inane. In short, I'd like to understand the concept of this particular basilisk better, but I'm still struggling a bit with the thread here. You said Fuzzy has a bit of a point - I imagine you mean FCP? And, what was his take on it all? And so on. All the best, Reverend Black Percy (talk) 11:17, 13 June 2016 (UTC)
I was poking fun at said neoreactionaries with the idea "Lowtax's Basilisk, when schadenfreude becomes a utilitarian necessity". Nobody has taken the phrase up sadly, but I'll keep trying - David Gerard (talk) 12:52, 13 June 2016 (UTC)

The Cuck-o-tron 3000 beats the Alt-right robot (but their simulation is near-perfect). ...Wait, does Moore's law apply to Godwin's law? Reverend Black Percy (talk) 13:18, 17 March 2017 (UTC)
