“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

My blog, my rules. I will follow these rules, and I expect you to do the same as a reader.

  1. I will address you in the same fashion in which you address me. Civility will be met with civility, insults with insults. Name-calling and petty behaviour are not befitting of masculine men or feminine women; if I see evidence of this, I will stomp on it instantly. If you don’t like me or what I write, that’s totally fine – go start up your own blog and bitch about me there. I’ll even give you a free guide to help you do it. If, after reading that, you continue to be an obnoxious jackass, then you definitely want to create your own blog, because you are absolutely not welcome here and I will HAPPILY insta-ban you.
  2. If you have something to say, be prepared to back it up. I am driven by logic, facts, and evidence. I am not interested in empty meanderings. If you are called upon to back up an assertion, be ready to do so. Failure to do so may mean that your comment(s) will be deleted. Repeated failure to do so will result in being banned. I reserve the right to delete comments solely at my own discretion. If you comment here, you agree to and accept this rule, so don’t come whining to me about censorship if I delete your comment for no apparent reason.
  3. Trolls will be served with ONE warning. Defiance of said warning will be met with a ban. Comments responding to trolls will be deleted; commenters who persist in responding to said trolls will be banned after 3 such comments. Spammers will not, under any circumstances, be tolerated and their comments will not show up.
  4. Calling me a liar is about the easiest way to get me to kick your ass. And I’ll do it in style, too. If you are indeed stupid enough to do this, you will immediately provide evidence of my supposed falsehood or you will be banned. NO EXCEPTIONS. Note also that, if you are proven to be a liar, your comments will no longer be published and I will simply refuse to tolerate your presence here. You were given ample warning about my views on lying; if you are foolish and/or stupid enough to ignore that warning, then you deserve whatever you get.
  5. Anonymous commentary is NOT allowed. If you have something to say, be man enough to do so under an identifiable name so that I or others may respond should we so choose.
  6. I am fair game. My family and friends are not. Personal attacks on any of them will be deleted immediately. Persisting in such attacks 3 times or more will result in an instant ban.
  7. Politeness to other readers and commenters is expected. I will assume that you are an adult and will treat you as such until you prove otherwise. Remember, I personally moderate ALL comments, so if you insist on being rude, I will very happily be rude right back to you and refuse to publish your statements.


  • DON’T lie;
  • DON’T double down;
  • DON’T project;

I have no patience for SJWs and I take great pleasure in destroying their nonsense. If you are an SJW, and you have somehow stumbled across this blog by accident, be aware that I am your enemy, and that I have neither respect nor tolerance for your views- only open contempt.

In the end, it’s really simple: treat others as you wish to be treated here. This is my house and you are my guest. Be a good guest, and it will be my great pleasure to be your host.

    Brilliant summation. I need to borrow some of this for my small place

    • Didact

      You are most welcome to do so. My friend and fellow shitlord Last Redoubt did much the same for his blog. And in fact many of these rules are derived from our beloved and dreaded Supreme Dark Lord (PBUH).

      • Bardelys the Magnificent

        You mean classic insults like “your mother was a hamster and your father smells of elderberries” are off limits? What kind of skating rink are you running here?

        • Didact

          The kind where I fart in your general direction.

          Exceptions can be made on a case-by-case basis for good Monty Python references ))

    I keep trying to read the “Electile Dysfunction” article and get loading errors. Have tried multiple times. Is anyone else experiencing this?

    • Didact

      If you’re talking about yesterday’s post, it loads fine for me on multiple devices, but I connect through a VPN by default for all of my traffic. Try clearing cookies and reloading – sometimes a defective cookie causes problems.
