    You know, I don’t mind people sharing game opinions in the mainstream media while being anonymous, but it doesn’t look good. It just looks sorta “cowardly”, even if there are practical reasons behind it. Plus for many people, being out in the open works just fine. This is not my opinion (that it looks bad). And even when you’re not anonymous, you can end up looking bad, but you still gain something for saying things with confidence. Anything sounds at least somewhat interesting/intriguing when said with confidence. I disagree with Susan Walsh when she says “if you have to be anonymous for your opinions, maybe your opinions are misogynist and should be rethought”. I also disagree with her opinion that most of the manosphere is misogynist (I think it’s mostly not). But I also think she is, perhaps, a good barometer for what the mainstream will find manly/intriguing, and what they will find creepy.

    But anyway, even anonymous effort is good effort. Even if people look into 3MM site just to mock or out of curiosity, he got their attention and can talk to them in a better setting.

    Thanks FN for the linkage. As for Susan wanting us all to come out in the open with our real identities, good luck with that. Much like the Captain, I’m unemployable even though I blog under a pseudonym. Hell he even included me on his list of “unemployable bloggers”. Good thing I don’t need a job in corporate america.

  • smoothreentry

    Great post! Thanks for sharing all the links! Although I just wasted my day reading!

  • Leap of a Beta

    Thanks for the inclusion.

    Emma – I think people that are only dealing with ‘game’ or self improvement blogs have much less to lose with loss of anonymity. It’s people who have ideas that go against the tide of feminism that have much, much more to lose if they’re in any way involved in corporate culture.

  • electricangel

    Great set of links, Poet, and thanks for stopping by Patri!

  • Chris

    Thanks for the linkage.

    Emma — I am also on the list of unemployable bloggers when in real life I’m an academic with tenure. Half the tradosphere and manosphere use their real names.

    The ones that don’t generally live in socailist hellholes. Like Canada, most of the USA, and the EU.

    Did I get linked? I can’t tell? But I do see I’m getting traffic from here. Hmmmmmm.

  • PC Geek

    The Bosnian survivalist link was quite interesting, but the type of situation that he found himself in is not like the type of situation Americans or Canadians would likely find themselves in if our economic depression deepens.

    Prepping for a situation similar to the inflationary collapse of Argentina would be far more helpful.

    Any prep is probably good prep, but it is best to prep for the type of survival situation that you would most likely face.
