- Michael Tracey thinks your concerns about online harassment are silly, a laugh-riot, really. In a Medium post full of weasel words and obfuscations, he tells us–as a dude who knows–what we should and shouldn’t worry our pretty little heads about. If you can get past his hate-boner for Arthur Chu (of all people) you’ll get to read embarrassing shit like this: “Which brings us to the case of Milo Yabba-dabba-do-opolous, who was perma-banned not long ago for getting into a Twitter fight with a movie star. ” Ha ha ha!! See, he doesn’t know how to spell his name. He doesn’t have to worry about it because Milo hasn’t lead an ugly harassment campaign against him. Nice use of the phrase “movie star.” See, it’s ok to viciously attack celebrities (especially if they’re people of color or women!) No one was ever hurt by a little online harassment. “So what these aggrieved Twitter personalities are demanding is the accrual of even greater power to Silicon Valley feudal rulers, who are already on a perpetual sanctimonious power-trip. Chu & co. ultimately want Jack Dorsey or whoever to assume massive unilateral control over “the conversation,” so as to placate the people who see online harassment as more consequential than war, disease, and famine.” This guy seems legit.
- File this little “Dear Diary” moment about committing adultery in the most manly way possible under “Stuff Someone Was Actually Paid to Write, Part 2,0176.” I read it. I wish I hadn’t. Now you have to. YOU HAVE TO. I won’t bear this burden alone.
- Here’s my latest piece. It’s based upon the Shel Silverstein book, “The Giving Tree.” It’s called “Giving Back.“
- This fake geek boy ass-whooping had to be explained to me by actual geeks (since I’m not much of one, I guess). Star Wars fans, ENJOY.
Sometimes I wake screaming,shaking uncontrollably,crying, thinking about Mathew Broderick playing Gene Wilder’s part in The Producers. — bspencer (@vacuumslayer) September 1, 2016
