caamib dissects the “disaster” of the incel community/movement

He writes:

For all of you who read this and know just how idiotic the groups that have taken over the current mainstream of the incel name, I want to tell you just one thing – I am indeed sorry. There was hardly a way for me to predict this would occur. If I could go back 2 years I assure you that it would not. But now there isn’t much I can do anymore but perchance start my own incel community. I was thinking about that a lot. Now, some of you know I am currently mostly hanging out with male sexualists like Eivind Berge, Tom Grauer, Holocaust21 and Nathan Larson (despite disagreeing with some things Nathan believes in)  as these men still have some brains left. I ‘d start a community for incels and love-shy people, along with male sexualists. Please, if you read all of this huge text tell me what you think about the idea. As I said, there isn’t currently a single one incel community that is worth anything. All are complete disaster for way or the other. If you have any intelligence you will not be on any of these communities.

C’mon, man, don’t you disagree with some things Grauer says too? He copied most of my ideology anyway, or maybe came up with some of the same ideas independently.

I’m mostly just writing this post to try to attract traffic to my own site by pinging a blogger who’s more popular than me, so I could just leave it at that, but to keep up appearances, I better add some more filler. Earlier in the piece, caamib writes:

To say that my blog started the current insanity around incels would be simply wrong.

So what did? Well, in order to understand that we must go back some years. Two original incel (a term invented by a Canadian woman in 1997) communities were Love-shy.com, a site that takes its name from an unrecognized disorder called love-shyness that American psychologist Brian G. Gilmartin wrote about in his 1987 book Shyness & Love: Causes, Consequences, and Treatments, and the now defunct Incel Support.

I thought I heard that a man came up with the term “incel” many decades ago? Henry Flynt, maybe? Okay, let me find one more thing to quote from caamib’s post:

But things aren’t that simple. Starting a website/forum is different from starting a subreddit. Reddit is a huge community with thousands of subreddits but it is much more difficult to get people to register on your site specifically. Another problem is that my technical skills are poor and I know very little about hosting. The current disgusting incel forum was a consequence of a disgusting community but how am I to get a real community? I know about 15 people who will register but how do I get others?

You really don’t need all that many people; quality > quantity. Some of the best publications are just an editor and a handful of writers. If you have a few prolific content creators, then the public can just lurk, and you’ll have accomplished your goal, which was to reach people with quality content.
