Hollenhund had this say about gamers and their fake MRA sympathies.
We shouldn’t delude ourselves into thinking that Roosh, Ferdinand or Roissy care about men’s rights at all. For example, Ferdinand has once specifically stated that he isn’t an MRA, and Roissy’s indifference and even contempt towards MGTOW and the MRM is palpable. Their main goal – other than simply being bloggers for a hobby – seems to be narcissistic, attention-seeking self-aggrandizement in the form of utilizing their popularity as bloggers to cross over into publishing. Roosh has already done this, Ferdinand has said he’s planning to debut as a writer and Roissy has dropped hints that he wants a book deal by revealing his real identity to mainstream newspapers. I’m sure he hasn’t dropped that goal. I’m not saying this behavior is objectionable or misguided, but then again, it’s a clear sign they don’t consider themselves to be a part of any movement, be that the mainstream, sanitized, pro-feminist seduction community or the MRM. They seem to be interested in personal gain and nothing else.
I sense the same mentality among other bloggers as well. Obsidian and Alte, for example, were obviously aiming to leech off the growing popularity of the MRM by luring its leaders to their own blogs and converting them to their own creeds. It’s questionable whether they ever cared about the concept of men’s rights at all. Susan Walsh obviously craves some form of mainstream acceptance and exposure by preaching the concept which you correctly named “Game 2.0″. I’d guess her main eventual goal with blogging is also a book deal (or more precisely, deals).
Every gamer is trying to sell you a book (or a DVD). Since game doesn’t exist, these books are by definition scams. We shouldn’t be surprised by this since almost all gamers are either unemployed or underemployed and are desperate for income.
We also have to start thinking about preventing publicity of these scams wherever possible. I now realize that Paul Elam never should have debated Frost. Why is that? Because Frost has written a game book, and Paul Elam unwittingly gave Frost publicity even though the book was never referenced during the debate. Obviously, we can’t stop gamers on their own blogs, but we can stop them on our own blogs and try to stop them on third party blogs they invade.
In the past I have deleted and/or edited comments for two main reasons, spam, and gamers doing weird BS like coming here and attacking me for the purpose of increasing the visibility of their blogs. (The gamers accused me of being a coward and being against free speech for doing this.) I’m adding another category to comments I will edit or delete, anything involving a commercial venture I am not involved in, particularly if that commercial venture is fraudulent. That includes comments that indirectly promote said commercial venture. (Any commercial venture involving game is by definition fraudulent.) This is a small thing, but I’m making a stand.
