He’s not biting

Wow. A new low every day.

Marian Melby’s blog. Post by HJ Hornbeck.

I’m currently away, with only a scattered internet connection.

If you’re looking for M.A. Melby, you have the wrong extension. Please hang up and try again.

If you’re a blogger in the middle of a meltdown over accusations of transphobia, I spotted that post of yours thanks to a commenter. Nice troll, but I’m not biting.

If you’re wondering why I haven’t approved your comment or made one myself, technical reasons are conspiring to prevent it. About all I can do from here is write or edit blog posts, and only then when I catch a spare moment and/or build up sufficient outrage.

For all other inquiries, please leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

…. Oh wait. Hmmm. Maybe try carrier pigeon?

    No, wittily – in Hornbeck’s opinion.

    I’d add a “half-right!” gag here, but feel an estimate of 50% would exaggerate the situation beyond credibility.

    So if you continue to do the thing that you’ve been doing for ages now that there’s a controversy over a misinterpretation of something you said on that issue then… oh, wait, well… now that I’ve written it down, yeah, that’s definitely trolling. Obviously.

    Seriously though, wat?

    I fail to see how That Post Of Yours is trolling at all, but for the sake of argument, let’s say that it is totes trollish. So then, on to HJ Hornbeck’s ‘answering machine’ message. Does he seriously consider that post to be non-trollish? Non-provocative, non-snide, non-petty? I wonder if he thinks it was actually zero trollish, or just a-bit-trollish-but-not-as-much-as-hers with a dash of it’s-okay-when-I-do-it.

    What a petty hypocrite.

    This is the Deep Thinker who thought Charlie Hebdo making fun of an anti-Semitic leftist meant they could not be a left-leaning publication.

    I was baffled at the time, but I’ve seen so much similar reasoning lately it no longer surprises me. Some people can’t see beyond the heuristics.

    This is the same Deep Thinker who claimed that women-only, safe spaces were created and maintained by lesbians looking to pull and that the exclusion of trans-women was down to lesbians not liking dick.

    That any LGBT ally would read and agree with him is shocking.
