You

This post is about you, the Roosh blog reader. After a couple of months at this, I have noticed some things that amuse me greatly. So I got the idea to turn the tables and comment on you and your writing. Below is a list my observations about you. I look forward to reading your comments about yourselves.

1. You think it’s all about you. You demand New Yorker quality writing 5 days a week for 52 weeks of the year. As soon as one post appears that seems to fall short of a Hemingway, you launch into hate. If Roosh is the writer, you tell him he is slipping. If I am the writer, you say I am ruining Roosh’s blog. It’s like you think Roosh and I work for you. My boss is easier going on me than you guys are, and he pays me.

2. You only comment when provoked. If Roosh makes an observation about women that seems less than flattering, all kinds of thoughtful comments and interesting discussion takes place. If there is a mellow post that doesn’t ruffle feathers, then there isn’t much response. If I write something that seems pro-relationship (God forbid), women don’t comment and men say I am a boring married guy who is ruining Roosh’s blog.

3. You get pissed off for being provoked. This is my favorite. You don’t participate unless provoked, but then some of you send hate for provoking you. Make up your minds! Since it’s obvious you guys enjoy being angry and indignant, shouldn’t you thank us for giving you a reason to get pissed off?

4. You love arguing with each other. In fact, some of you seem to get far more joy debating, attacking, and scolding each other than you get from actually commenting on the post itself. I have a feeling I could write a two line post that if controversial enough, could generate 50 comments from all the attacks and counter attacks you would launch against each other.

Roosh has already posted about how this blog came to be. The bottom line is: he does it for own interest and amusement. I do it once per week to help Roosh get a day off and because I thought it would be fun. Being opinionated guys, we like sharing our views. Some of our posts are serious, some are no-so-serious, and some are just silly. But in the end, it is always about posting whatever is on our minds in a way that interests and amuses us.

With regard to your #2 – I like your posts, Chaco…particularly the “Pro-Relationship” ones. #4 is the biggest reason as to why I don’t comment very often. It can be really ugly out there in the Comments section.

As for #1 – Those who can, do. Those who can’t, critique.

Am I allowed to say how much I enjoyed This post?

I must pose the question of: Isn’t this blog basically written for the public? If so, isn’t some sort of ‘crap’-taking almost certain to happen? I mean, we’re (mostly) Americans. We have to bitch about Everything!

Wah my car isn’t the biggest and best and….Ssshhhh

but anyway, I figure you want the blog to be like a mini-celebrity thing, right? I mean, it doesn’t read like y’all are writing just to hear yourselves think or what have you. Appears like you write directly for and to, the audience.

Seems only equal that they would want to be provoked. But then yea, bitching about being provoked…that’s just funny shit.

Anyway, keep entertaining…but maybe restrict Anon people from commenting? Now That I could bitch all day about.

thank. I enjoy reading your guys shit.

As usual, you are right on the money. I don’t understand why people feel the need to bash your pro-relationship posts but there is always going to be someone angry and needing a target. You are easy for them and as long as you keep on ignoring (I wish I could), you’ll do great.

Ironically, I think some of Roosh’s best posts are the life/general interest posts, but that’s as a woman. A lot of people come here for controversy and when they get a thought-provoking post that doesn’t bash all Americans or women…they become confused. 🙂

You’re right, not controversial enough. How are we supposed to start a fight with that post? I shall assist you, since you have failed miserably.

I enjoy eating human babies with chopsticks, clubbing baby seals with a tire iron, and torturing PETA activists with a car battery and alligator clips, attached to the nipples, vagina and testicles, depending on gender. That’s how you get it done, Chaco.

Now it places the lotion in the basket…

Roosh was picked up by Wonkette twice this week. No doubt your post will get it picked up again.

Kinda furthers my argument that once you become a public icon, you set yourself up to get knocked about. Suggestion: get some thicker skin

chaco, #4 is inevitable when the pool of opinion is expanded. if i were a poster, i’d be flattered that a two-line stab at notoriety generated 200 heated comments all veering off into acid-tipped ego-missiles.

mow em down, i accept your two-line stinkbait challenge and raise you:

men put up with marriage and children in order to get love and sex from their wives. beauty is not in the eye of the beholder.

Sometimes I wonder, though, Chaco, how much you and Roosh play off the whole “people comment because they’re pissed off” thing in order to just get more comments.

And I agree with KassyK. The more interesting posts are the ones on life, not the more assinine, “women suck, they are only for sex, blah, blah, blah” posts. Those annoyed me at first, but after a while, they’re just redundant and boring.

A raise huh. Well, I can only call with this hand. The best kind of woman is unconcious and can’t say no. We’re almost getting to territory where I feel uncomfortable, but not yet.

“The more interesting posts are the ones on life”

computers, team sports, and sci fi are a part of life. would you feel less bored talking about that, or only about those things in life that appeal to your female nature?

rebecca, i’ve noticed women have a lower tolerance for dealing with subject matter that explicitly addresses the interests of men than men do dealing with subject matter that explicitly addresses the interests of women.
do you know why this is?
i do.

“The best kind of woman is unconcious and can’t say no.”

not bad, mow. but get ready to hew to your fainting couch:
women are like dog shit. the older they get the easier they are to pick up.

Ahh yes, us commenters do get pissed off and provoked, myself included. But as evidenced by my “Dunce Cap”, so does our man Roosh. =) I think the bottem line is that if anybody, whether an author of a blog or a commenter, says something that can be construed as provocative or offensive, they have to be ready to take the heat and have other people disagree with them. I seriously doubt that half of the offensive things that are posted on this blog would ever be said face to face though. That is where I do have to give Roosh credit– he does make himself publically known through his happy hours and such, so he does take own up to what he says and doesn’t hide behind anonymity.

Actually, Roissy, I do think it’d be more interesting if he talked about sports or sci-fi or computers. Why do you assume these are gender-specific topics? And “life” is now a female topic? Personally, I would think that all genders would be interested in life, but hey. Whatever. Believe it or not, most people don’t live in the little boxes other people try to fit them in. I don’t care what Roosh chooses to write on. I’m just tired of the one-note song.

Getting picked up by Wonkette doesn’t mean much anymore now that they take two link dumps a day.

An honest offering Roissy, to which I can only offer this joke:

Why do none of the other children care that little Susie has all the toys?

Because little Susie has cancer.

anonymity of the internet creates the phenomena you describe.

you mention that you write for your own amusement – and not to criticize you or roosh, but you could distill your post to just that statement.

keep up the good work i love reading this blog.

To comment against number three, I’d pose the question rather should YOU be thanking US for the hate, the arguing, the backstabbing, and all that other fun stuff. I mean, come on, it only adds to the site!

I discovered this blog this week through a Wonkette post, and now spend more time reading this than Wonkette.

As for flame wars? Fuck, people can get pissed at anything. It ain’t your job to be a nanny and protect your readers feelings. My .02

Dude I call out your post because they do suck. I expect 5 star quality shit every time I hit my fucking bookmarks looking for something to read that reinforces the notion that my life is absolutely worthless but so are the people that I read about. Your shit is unimaginative and boring. Your relevancy to this blog is equivalent to someone putting hot sauce on dog shit to eat for breakfast. DCB shit is fucking funny and entertaining because he’s sincere and geniune. You my friend suck catballs in this department. Hell I stopped reading your posts 3 weeks ago because I got tired of reading the same regurgitated subject matter that DCB or some other local blogger spewed and just felt compelled to save my 15 minutes and beat off to pictures of Rosie O’Donnell and snack on a bag of pork grinds…..

Bwahahahahaha.

If I wasn’t getting married in 3 and a half months I would so hit on you. That is the funniest shit I’ve read here in a long time. No, scratch that, ever. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLZ.
