Argenti: pecunium — your attempts at Steele-esque abuse of language strike me more as extremely well written purple prose, I’m not even sure it counts as purple prose, as each bit of it is slowly but surely edging towards Steele’s defenestration

You saw through me.

@Diogenes

Let it go. You probably are a misogynist. If you don’t want to be, change. You are a troll. If you don’t want to be, change.

And if you actually take anybody here seriously, you wouldn’t still be harping on this. It makes you look ridiculous.

Finally, please be friends with Steele. I so wanna watch each of your pretentions interact.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

@Dumbass, you’ve demonstrated garden-variety, low-level misogyny here, and as I said, refused to even consider that you’re wrong on that and many other subjects. Pissant whining that you aren’t a misogynist doesn’t cut it. You also don’t know the difference between hatred and mildly amused contempt, which is the best you get, apart from when you indulge in rape apologetics and the like, when it hardens to scorn. But hatred? What makes you think people even think about you in their daily lives?

@Argenti – defenstration? Oh gods, did I miss that? Or are we getting to toss Steele out a window now? 😀

“Um… OK, how the actual fuck did you know I was going to say that 11 minutes into the future?”

Um…I thought I’d seen you say something very similar to what you ended up posting? Idfk *sonic’s the thread”

Kitteh — “OMG Pecunium is the Doctor!” — that was me, but frankly, The Doctor is a bit much responsibility for me (I mean, unless we’re in “hiding in the clouds sulking” stage or something) And no, defenestration was not said until I brought it up, I don’t think.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Whoops! I thought it was Pecunium, my bad. Though yeah, I wouldn’t want to take on the Doctor’s job either.

I must say the idea of tossing Steele out of a (ground floor) window onto a muckheap is kind of appealing …

Steele continues to mangle the language in ways that are downright painful, like the pain that comes from a rotten tooth being chomped on through a mouthful of salt-water taffy….

But in Boobzland – to toe the dogma, makes one a troll. Since this is so, Manboobz has become a recursively radical community; any dissent is silence;

To toe the dogma is the subject of that clause (psssst, Steele, don’t put commas between grammatical subject and the main verb), but it makes no sense.

Toe the line is a common cliche (psssst, Steele, mangling a cliche doesn’t make it any better), but if that’s the meaning, Steele is saying that conforming to the dogma is what makes a person a troll–which is flagrant contradiction to the statement above: “to disagree is to be labeled a troll.”

“Recursively radical” has a nice alliterative ring to it, but it doesn’t really convey much more sense than “radical.”

Floundering, I grasp at the idea that the error in “dissent is silence” is a simple typo (i.e. he’s saying dissent is SILENCED — though the evidence seems to contradict this claim–it takes more than dissent–it takes over the top boringness/repetitiveness and personal attacks).

But given that toeing the dogma=troll, maybe dissent=silent. (Silence is assent? Can silence be dissent? It can be, but I don’t think that’s what SteeleTroll means).

*damn you steele for causing grammatical and syntactical pain*

Lol, the library in my HS was on the ground floor, with ceiling to floor windows, we used to threaten to throw each out that window. Really though, I was just playing off Steele’s claim of eviscerating pecunium.

“Whoops! I thought it was Pecunium, my bad.” — much like you didnt mind being mistake for cloudiah, don’t worry about it.

And now I really am going to bed, before I fall asleep with my mac in my lap. While it’s bounced off the floor from higher heights, I’d rather not risk it! (Hilariously, it’s bounced off a shot glass, shattered the shot glass, the mac just dented a bit XD )

Perhaps the more of us who say it the better the odds it might sink in? Probably not with him, but it’s worth a try!

Re: dissent is silence, he has it backwards, the only appropriate response to The Silence is dissent. And now I really am going to bed!

Aw come on:
“I have been placed on moderation to prevent me from eviscerating your comments in real time;”
Yeah, I could totally kick your ass but I won’t, ’cause, ’cause, ’cause your parents are probably watching us from the window, and if I kick your ass — they’ll sue me, and…
*eyeroll*

Um, cynic, I dunno if you’re a fully formed misogynist, but you defintely have the personality of a shit lord. As far as I can tell, you come here to talk down to everyone, and you want us to thank you for it. And you derail threads like mad. Just about everyone here thinks you’re irritating (anyone who agrees, give a shout out of Yay!). I’m just saying…

I’m definitely voting for Steele, since so far in this thread he’s already presented me with a real challenge in the form of deciding whether I’m more amused by his dogged insistence on mangling the language or by his hilariously overblown victim complex.

I’m leaning towards the latter. It’s just so adorable how he keeps whining about how he’s been banned, then realizes he hasn’t been banned and tries to cover his embarrassment by whining about how he’s surprised he hasn’t been banned, or something.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Yeah, Steele’s making a great late run, isn’t he? Must have come into extra campaign funds or something.

I better have been nominated. If you’re not sure, you should click through to my blog. Your little brains will EXPLODE.

Heh.

Wow. Pro-Choice AND pro-men? Can such a thing be?

Here’s a NWOSlave entry that would totally deserve entry into his Book if it was made here:

Look at the flip side which is far worse. Say you want a child and your girlfriend/wife gets pregnant. Then out of the blue she decides it’s too much of a hastle. The axe falls and she gets an abortion. Stick your unborn child in a snowglobe and every year you can celebrate happy deathday.

Source.

(I can’t remember if he’s banned or perma-modded, but my memory is for shit.)

He’s on perma-mod. I think that sort of ruined the fun for him.

Oh, JudgyBitchy, go away. Your blog made my brain go “meh.”

But congrats — people have nominated you for the list of pathetic feMRAs, but it’s sort of a consolation prize… You’ll really need to up your game if you want to compete with the likes of Steele, Pell, et al.

Ftr, Unpaid Help, I call you that because your screenname indicates that you are Unpaid Help of The Kittehs’, not a kitteh yourself. It’s not that I think it’s a surname.

I don’t know why, after all the Owly spew I’ve read, that this is particularly moving. I think it’s the snowglobe. This is it. There can be no further whatthefuckery.

Oh, Steele, will you ever learn? It’s perfectly obvious that the phrase is in fact “dogma the toe”. Much like reading your comments, it indicates an event usually followed by sympathetic and embarrassed wincing from anyone who happens to be looking on.

I agree that judgybitch shouldn’t be nominated for anything. She’s horrible and pathetic without being funny and mockable (hi Steele, you’ve still got my vote!) and seems to be seeking some sort of validation.

The Kittehs' Unpaid Help

Or is it “Dog, Ma, the toe!”

No, I don’t know what that’d mean either, but with Steele, does it matter?

Nepenthe – I thought he was doing a surname thingy ‘cos of the way he reduces “CassandraSays” to “Says” and “hellkell” to “kell”.

It’s a Steele weirdism either way. 😀

At least show us something fun while you’re at it like a steele-toed dogma or something.

“How many others have been semi banned from the site within a few days of posting?” – depends on how stupid they decide to be, I’m guessing there were others and they weren’t worth rememoring. He’ll, I’d forgotten you existed until that comment.

“How many others have been semi banned from the site within a few days of posting?”

Don’t forget a lot of first-time posters don’t manage to get through the first-post bar; you can’t say you’re really trying to troll if you’re allowed to post here at all.

Yeah. You should totally up your game. If we never saw a hint of your presence here again, u guiz, then that would be total proof you were the ultimate troll.

Just please, please don’t throw me in that briar patch!!!

I think it’s telling that this year people are vying for the, ‘honor”. It implies that manboobz is actually having some effect on the manosphere. They are aware of it/us, and see being lampooned here as validation of their, “work”.

So, in it’s twisted way, TOTY is bragging rights, since it means they have gained “opprobrium” from “Feminism”.

I have to say, all things being equal, I’m inclined to tip my head toward Varpole.

Tom Martin for Troll of the Year. Steele for Dumbass Who Has No Idea How to Write. Ruby for the Shut Up Award. Judgybitch for nothing at all, not even desperately whining for votes.

By the way, does anyone remember what thread it was in which Otis wouldn’t shut up about upper body strength? I was thinking about it the other day but I can’t seem to find it now.
