Meta Recs: Once More, With Links
children of dune - leto 1
A couple of Several posts I ran across regarding the outing of coffeeandink and assorted context to current discussions.

Shorter Kathryn Cramer by zvi_likes_tv gathers summary, argument, denoucement, and brilliance into a brick to beat the hell out of ignorance. Also a ton of good links and context to what's been going on.

Shetterly & Cramer: Once More, With Failing by vito_excalibur, which I am recommending for being both incredibly good and funny and very, very true. Basically, anyone who starts out with xkcd is already in a winning position, and she makes some interesting points about the shift of media and book culture and also some great links.

Cultural Appropriation and SF/F: Once More, With Apathy by shewhohashope on conversational redirections, internet pseudonymity, and basically everything. Also, links.

Also for those that have been thinking of the implications of Cramer and Shetterly's blatant outing of an dissenting voice as a form of punishment and silencing opposition, PSA: Protecting Your Pseudonymity by tacky_tramp has some practical advice.

I know that a post about You and Your Online Life and Times went around last year around this time, so if I can remember what it was and where I saw it, I'll post that too. I could swear it was astolat that posted it, but my memory is not what sane people call good unless it relates to obscure fic about Clark's penis (God, that I could forget).

Yes, the antibiotics are indeed kicking in, and I have a lot of reading to catch up on here.

ETA: par_avion found the post by astolat about the outing with more practical tips for pseudonym protection.

I've been compiling a link list that is mostly the links you just listed, heh.

LOL. I found it but knew someone else'd beat me to it :)


Dueling archivists!

It was harder to find than I thought. I was remembering "oh, the crazy shit started in January" but it wasn't there and *then* I remembered oh, the crazy went away and came back! and looked some more and then I remembered oh, THAT round ... wasn't even astolat at all, and in fact the astolat stuff happened right before VividCon.

I'm tired of dealing with this shit! Again!!! People should stop being such fucking assholes on the internet. Can we (media fandom) please finalize the divorce from SF fandom already?

God, I was like Wiscon? Boobgate? Elections? Hale? And--yeah. *shakes head*

I'm so in.

You know how I have been the fucking marriage counselor in this troubled marriage? I am about ready to throw in the towel. Let the fucking bastard burn.

I am so right there with you.

I used to be interested in the history of (larger) fandom, and I used to find it mildly amusing -- not to mention ironic -- how backward and out of touch SFF could be, but today all I have is rage and more rage. We don't need them.

Yeah...I think I may be in a particular position to remember THAT timeline quite well :) Though even I had to check whether it was June or July...

dueling archivists...i like :)

obscure fic about Clark's penis (God, that I could forget).

Okay. Spill. [grins]

Oh, hell, no.


Awwwww. That's terrible! Clark's penis should be a happy place. Not a nightmary place.

O.M.G - almost completely off-topic, but thank you for linking to vito_excalibur's post, because she mentioned one of my favorite series ever with "Diane Duane could write about happy feminist polyamorous dragon MPREG back in 1993", which had Diane Duane herself in the comments saying that the fourth book isn't dead-dead, and my heart sings.

(Seriously. We could set up Merlin's slash dragon with Segnbora's tribe and have a happy dragon poly romp going on.)

hi, not wanting to be intrusive but..

those who have recently ATTEMPTED to access Kathyrn Cramer's blog but were redirected might want to do a thorough virus scan.

Per UNFUNNYBUSINESS http://www.journalfen.net/community/unfunnybusiness/ :

Update: Kathryn Cramer has now password-protected her entire blog. There are screenshots of her post about coffeeandink here and here, with coffeeandink's name removed. Earlier she redirected those who tried to access her blog to a site with possible malware.
