Top 10 Posts for October 2018

Crystal Huff’s charges against the president of Arisia, Inc. led to his ouster and the resignation of nearly all the Eboard, and encouraged several others to go public with criticism about how their own incident reports were handled. A few apologies also have been tendered, and a great deal of commentary written, tracked here in daily roundups.

Almost forgotten now is that the month began with an uproar about Bleeding Cool’s interview of Vox Day, soon pulled, and the editorial reorganization of the well-known pop culture site.

  1. I prefer the “scroll included” top ten to the scroll-unincluded list.

    I think if scrolls dominate the top ten, that’s what should be promoted, not some “everyone wins a prize” watered down scrollless list designed to make under-performing posts feel better about themselves. If those posts want to be listed in the top ten, they should work harder at being more popular, rather than trying to drag all the rest down to their level!

    Sure, sure, some non-scroll-adjacent types are going to try and bleat about the fact that there are often more scrolled posts than unscrolled posts and that that introduces an unconscious bias into the equation. Then they’ll start complaining that even addressing the issue is some kind of passive–agressive microagression designed to undermine the agency of non-scroll posts – which is utter nonsense: non-scroll posts get posted as often as they want to be and we shouldn’t be holding scrolled posts accountable for non-scrolled posts lack of participation! You gotta be in it to win it, as they say.

    If you really want something to complain about, go talk to those SJW Credential posts! Buncha posers!

  2. I prefer the “scroll included” top ten to the scroll-unincluded list.

    I like both.
