Well, after a bit of gentle prodding, I figured out which of Roissy’s holy cows I tipped. It has become apparent that there is no way to have an honest discussion on his site. I think I understand better now why Dave only censors spam. It’s to keep the discussion from degrading into “let’s all kiss Dave’s ass while pretending not to”.
So when it comes to blogs on game and relationships, Relationships @Blog-city > Roissy in D.C.
What the latter is good for though, is helping women who honestly don’t want to get involved with assholes, or not repeat an asshole experience, to avoid doing so. You’ll get a good view into their minds from Roissy and some of his commenters. Thing is though, some of the commenters are clearly not assholes, and the contrast is fairly startling when you see guys with game all around and guys (like the blogger himself) who have shallow game, right there next to each other, albeit in text.
Assholes are good for telling it like it is in some ways. The only problem is that they represent the most extreme side of the spectrum, which one should be aware of, but shouldn’t mistake for being representative of all men.
Now I have a dilema. My readers depend on me to have enough integrity to show all sides when I can, but at the same time, I don’t want to reward someone who hates me personally, with linkage. So maybe I need to find another representative of the dark side, now that I’m sure I’m not in danger of misjudging anyone.
