And now we are being dismissed by Bear Woman for offering up our comment history as proof that we aren’t one person with multiple burners. Read more

THIS! I have no dog in this current fight, but I’ve also been here since the beginning, and there are always “top dog” commenters who seek out that status, and MD is certainly one of those people. It’s weird, because most of those commenters have some sort of niche expertise or insight that is actually valuable, but Read more

He’s obviously Flying Squid. I’m not sure why people don’t realize this. I don’t comment much, but have been a longtime reader, and MD aligns with Squid perfectly. And who honestly thought Squid would actually disappear? The UK thing is just a cover.

You do have some good insights. You also have moments where you dig in and refuse to cede any points to someone else, which can come or encompass mansplaining, and it can be exhausting for those of us who experience it in real life so often to also have to deal with it not just on the internet but a site like Jezebel.

This is exactly my problem with him and the space he takes up. I actually enjoyed a post about the Olympics (I aggressively don’t give a shit about sports) and I realized that it was because all the comments were ladies speaking passionately and cheering a woman athlete on, without a single MD post in sight.

But it is the same as white people being the most visible on the root. We don’t need men (and this happens in waves on jez every year or two) to be the loudest most frequent in the black commenters. It doesn’t leave any air for the quality posters still languishing in the grey to be heard.

I have been active in this space since 2007. I have seen many prominent commenters come and go. The problem is not with the current system. The problem is with people thinking they ought to be top dog or have prominence in some way. People come and go. Sometimes they are men, sometimes women. The people who last are Read more

Men are just so used to people letting them fill up a space they are baffled when asked to let someone else have some air. I don’t want a men’ free space. I just want men to not be squatting on every thread about women when they have nothing to add other than parroted feminist phrases. We don’t need you to parrot us. Read more

Well said. Start a blog if you want uk politics discussed. I am not American so I generally skip most politics posts that are American specific (pre trump at least!) But i dont write and research and link to politics in my country daily on an American blog that isn asking me to be a writer.

The core problem is that you don’t care how you come across to other people. You want to say what you want to say and you don’t care how it is received (or rather, how it is received will not stop you saying what you want to say).

I can tell you that if you are actually trying to be aware of how much space you take up, it is not showing. Yours always seems to be one of the top two or three comments on a lot of articles. And quite often only at most 10 or so comments actually have significant amounts of replies. So if you’re always posting early Read more

This was well done and well thought out but unfortunately not going to affect anything. MD has successfully painted himself as a victim of lady bullies and will continue his long winded disingenuous “I don’t understand why you don’t like me” b.s until we all go. He is a 20 something dude who constantly posts his 20 Read more
