a new begining

Its become abundantly clear that Vox's blog just ain't what it used to be.  Its not really his fault.  The guy has gotten so big... his comment section has been inundated with idiots on par with the average youtube commenter. 

That leaves us with a problem.

Where are the OG Dread Ilk to go to hang out and enjoy the same culture and commraderie we've grown accustomed to?

Welcome home boys. 

I will officially commit to blogging at least twice a day.  That should provide you with plenty of stuff to talk about and plenty of reason to keep the comments jumping.  If I can't keep that pathetic pace up... I'll open the blog up to other Ilk to keep the content coming.  Yes.  You read that right.  I will turn over the keys to the Bloggerblaster if need be.

now... none of this is to say I am upset or angry with Vox... or unhappy with his blog or blogging.  I love the guy.  I love his blog.  But the fact is the comments there just aren't worth the pain in the ass of the storm fronters and alt-right retards.

So... here we are.

Round them up.   You wanted to a place to hangout?  Here ya go.

Josh said...

Hey Mike gg in vpafl ii this week

cheddarman said...

Nate your comment about your moron translator being broken was priceless. I still laugh to myself when i think about it


Allabaster said...

Let the love of the Enfields shine through the hate.

Mike LaRoche said...

Josh - Yes, it was. Now if only I'd started Delanie Walker, I might've won.

robwbright said...

Nice. I'll be around. If you'll allow a damn dirty lawyer. If not, I'll sue for discrimination.

Josh said...

Hey...I got lucky...I'll take it...

Ben said...

Oh dear i forgot my manners. Greetings to you all, especially to our gracious host, Nate, and his gracious sockpuppet, Josh.

Josh said...

Nice. I'll be around. If you'll allow a damn dirty lawyer. If not, I'll sue for discrimination.

We need a token joooooo bankster too

Josh said...

BTW, fuck the assholes being assholes to farmer Tom.

Ben said...

BTW, fuck the assholes being assholes to farmer Tom.

Holy shit, no kidding right? Exhibit A of dumpster fire comments sections.

Josh said...

I still blame alpha game as ground zero for this

Susan said...

I admit I do much prefer this blog over the other, even for just lurking. As long as we get some BB on a daily basis again, whatever you do Nate it will be all good.

Josh said...

Yay we have someone who can make us sammiches!

Nate said...

Welcome guys. Like I say... twice a day. even if I have to turn over the keys to some damn dirty lawyer... or JOOOOOOOO banker.

Josh said...

That was too many O's

Joooooo has six O's.

For...reasons...

Nate said...

A nation is not a government! The Nation is not the Dirt! Correct. And a blog community is not the blog address. The blog community is not the blogger. The Dread Ilk are the Dread Ilk. And wherever they gather... is their home.

So be it.

Nate said...

Fuck you Josh.


BANNED.

Josh said...

Gay

Nate said...

we need thumbs up and thumbs down buttons.

Ben said...

and middle finger buttons

Josh said...

The Pigs Are In The Azaleas

Josh said...

What Would Bane Do about the trumptards?

Nate said...

oh man... the VP = Safe Space meme has to sting.

Josh said...

When does Vox get his very own Mallet?

Does he have to ask Scalzi for one?

Ian McLeod said...

Nate, when will you upgrade to a new comment system? This oldschool Blogger interface is triggering.

Guitar Man said...

I had fun lurking here years ago, and commenting on occasion under my old name, metaljaybird/mjb. I'll be making this my daily stop again.

Alexandros said...

I'm probably the type of new guy you're complaining about having only been reading the blog for a year or so and commenting for a month or so.

I wonder though; things change, things grow. Is that so bad?

Is it your desire to create an echo chamber with which to remove yourself from "storm fronters and alt-right retards?"

echo chambers eventually die; you can't spread your ideas in an echo chamber.

Josh said...

We don't want an echo chamber. We want a place where adults with triple digit IQs can hang out.

Nate said...

You can't have an intelligent discussion when 50% of participants are mouth breathers.

The reason most of us loved Vox's blog in the first place was it was a collection of extremely intelligent people.

now?

That's been watered down to the point that its not worth bothering with.

Josh said...

Hey how can we embed boob pics and videos

Mr. Naron said...

I've been away for a while. Is Michelle Malkin still an idiot?

Rabbi B said...

We need a token joooooo bankster too . . .

I'm your huckleberry . . . (minus the banker part) . . is an accountant good enough?

Nate said...

That's a good question chris

Houston said...

My dad hated the Enfield .303, but I'd like to try it out at a range sometime.

Clint said...

Thank God! There are enough of us still around to make this a good thing. Even if we have a damn dirty lawyer, a JOOOOO bankster, or anyone else around.

Houston said...

My dad hated the Enfield .303, but I'd like to try it out at a range sometime.

Josh said...

I'm just glad we have a real joooooo this time to be the token

Clint said...

Yes, and he doesn't mind being called a JOOOOO

Rabbi B said...

Yes, and he doesn't mind being called a JOOOOO

It's a candy, right?

Clint said...

Well, it is just nice to have a true representative this time around.

ajw308 (#98) said...

I've been told the .303 Enfield was a terrific rifle for battle.

Res Ipsa said...

The reason most of us loved Vox's blog in the first place was it was a collection of extremely intelligent people.

100% right about that. I stopped commenting awhile ago for the same reason.

I will officially commit to blogging at least twice a day.

Has anyone told Nate that a day is 24 hours and not once every six months or so?

LL #0002 said...

Is this going to be just ATF topics? Inquiring minds want to know.

jml1911a1 said...

>>we need thumbs up and thumbs down buttons.

What about creating a 'dreadilk' subreddit? It would have the added effect of getting an enormous quantity of Reddit SJW panties in a bunch.

Josh said...

Reddit is gay as fuck

Copperheaded said...

Not Dread Ilk, but I've been reading over there for damn near a decade. I used to skim the posts and read the comments. Now I read the posts and skim the comments. I'm guessing that all the names I look for there in the comments will be all that I see here. My favorite comment yesterday outside the VP as safe space comment was someone questioning Nate's manhood and then quoting Lincoln.

Clint said...

OK, Nate. Get that next blog up. You got two coming in today.

Porkins said...

Red six standing by.

Josh said...

"If anyone feels this way, then don't comment here. Stick to reading and stay out of the discourse."

What discourse?

Patrikbc said...

How long til Vox starts posting lengthy threads on your blog traffic stats, I can barely wait (sarcasm)

Nate said...

hey.. its 8:30am... and I was up all night... doing dad stuff. cut me some slack here.

Clint said...

I am just yanking your chain.

you know, as I sit here, looking at the bloggerblaster site, I see the VFM #0001 badge, and I silently mourn the loss of the better environment that existed just a few months ago at VP.

Josh said...

Oh FFS some window licker is preaching the Gospel of Saint Moldbug

Nate said...

Patrick... you're not going to see a feud between me and Vox. I love the guy.

N5 said...

The Enfield is a stone groove to shoot. And it killed tons of Japs in Burma.

N5 said...

And, as a recovering lawyer myself, I will keep an eye on RB out of professional courtesy.

Rabbi B said...

You're a daisy if you do. Better make it two eyes, buster.

Patrikbc said...

good, cause breaking my up is hard to do. :p

Susan said...

Oh Josh, I know how to make a whole lot more than sammiches.(grin)

Having been around from the days of the flame wars of Bane, Nate, ChuckE, Morgan of the Lake sparring with Spacebunny, VD's blog has indeed changed.
His posts are still awesome reading, but some of the commenters are indeed not up to the quality of days of old. He does have some great regulars, but they are not the same level from the old days. Not bad, just different.

The multi post/days dead horse beating regarding the Japanese of WWII were such epic entertainment. Nobody did a free for all like those commenters from those days.

I console myself with knowing that Nate, Res, and the good Rabbi have their doors open and are offering a good place to come and kick off my shoes. It is much appreciated in these days we are currently witnessing.

Remember when all Bane had to do was a one word Mooooo in response to Morgan of the Lake and she would go off on an epic hissy fit? Good times.

Ecthelion said...

Environment is not the web address and we can pretty much disagree on anything. There is no concern that this will become an echo chamber.

Susan said...

Oh, and the commenter who deserves his own category in the VD/Nate HOF for commenters is JamieR. When he would get triggered, his stream of conscious style comments were epic.

Marriage sure has tamed him well.

Russell (106) said...

TRUMP! TRUMP! TRUMPENING!

If you don't support Trump, you are really supporting a secret cabal of anti-alt-right-anti-non-conservative-pro-NWO-socialists. And probably Jews. Because you are a cuck. Or a SJW. Or a trans-SJW cuck.

N5 said...

To keep an eye on both Rob and Myself, I'd have to be Janus.

WaterBoy said...

"Serious Question. Are Nate and Josh the same person."

You decide.

And welcome back again, Nate. You're early -- the Quadrantids aren't for another month.

Nate said...

oh shit... the noobs have no idea what they've missed.

Bill said...

"The Pigs Are In The Azaleas"

Can I get a F*#& You?

I can't BELIEVE it took you so long to realize this. Vox's comment section has been in the crapper for, by my count, about ten years.

Nate said...

You couldn't deal with CoComment. I remember.

mistaben said...

This gets me right in the feelz.

WaterBoy said...

"You couldn't deal with CoComment. I remember."

I thought it was Chief Wana Dubie that scared him away...

Bill said...

Chief Wana Dubie

Duuuude.

thimscool said...

Interesting situation that has developed with regards the Dread Ilk.

Glad to hear more from you, though, whatever the reason.

Good luck keeping it up, Nate. Not that you're incapable, of course... But I suspect you are someone more challenged than Vox by the opportunity cost of blogging.

thimscool said...

Also, what happened to the Farmer Tom post at Vox's? I kind of wanted to see what transpired, but it is gone. Any insight as to why he nuked a post?

Not like Vox to puss out on that type of discussion... is he worried he hurt FT's feelings? Har. I read the post and a few comments... seems like Vox is in denial about the consequences of his success in pushing for "nationalism" in the US (which is a fucking non-starter for reasons that even Wheeler could explain).

Ah well. Good to see a bunch of the folks that made it worth reading comments over there, over here. I wish you luck.

Bill said...

Ok. This PROVES that God has a sense of humor. It's... just... spectacular. I googled Wanna Dubie, for old times sake and all that. Here's the first line of the first article that popped up:

56-year-old Chief Wana Dubie—given name Joseph Bickell—announced his run for the seat currently held by Republican Sen. Roy Blunt.

WaterBoy said...

@thimscool

He didn't nuke the post. The first one in which Farmer Tom made his original comments is here: Muslim immigration ban is constitutional.

The followup post specifically addressing FT's comments in that one is here: Mailvox: change is inevitable.

No pussing out involved.

WaterBoy said...

Bill: "56-year-old Chief Wana Dubie—given name Joseph Bickell—announced his run for the seat currently held by Republican Sen. Roy Blunt."

Yup, Dubie vs. Blunt '08. Except Blunt declined to run for re-election. And the Libertarian party in Missouri declined Dubie's registration fee, essentially booting him from the party...at least for that election.

thimscool said...

Ah. Thanks WB... Not sure how I missed them but I'm glad vox didn't go round the bend...

thimscool said...

My apologies for doubting your integrity Vox, if you read here.

And my apologies to the rest of you, and our host, for marring this thread.

Glad to see you back in action, Nate.

BoysMom said...

Blond chicks still welcome? And no, I still don't do pics. I don't look near as good as SB in a bikini.
