The man who stalked my friend to get back at me and I quote " For example, Yama's friend Emma lied to me about knowing him when I contacted her, and if she hadn't overdone the fake sympathy I might have even bought it." and anyone affiliated with him don't deserve to be nominated for anything.

You are worthy in your own regard. You don't have to take your worth from hunting down someone else.

God loves you.

Well, maybe you should convince your husband to drop Venereal Disease McStalkerson's publishing house.

If VD is not worthy of our notice and support, there must be better things you could do with your life than bother noticing him. Surely there are other, wonderful things to do in life.

He stalked my friend. His PR and his publishing house's PR should be destroyed for that. Nobody should publish with him. Nobody should buy anything published by him.

I may not convince you but maybe someone who's otherwise neutral will decide not to buy anything by your husband unless he changes publishers.

Sir,

I am always delighted when you come to visit my blog...but you have made life miserable for VD and his friends and followers for some years now. Many of them. All the time. It is not fair to bully and harangue someone--which is what you have done, always slamming people on their own websites--and then turn around and complain when finally someone does something similar to you.

You are better than all this. You have all sorts of wonderful gifts and a love of nature. You don't need to spend your time caught up in hatred.

VD isn't going to bother you if you don't torment him. He has better things to do.

You can be free of hatred and live a good life.

Um, it's totally within my right to complain about Vox's actions.

Vox went after my friends on Twitter.
Vox posted the place I volunteer on his blog and encouraged his followers to harass me there.
Vox looked up my friend's videos on Youtube and posted them on his blog, and then he found her contact information and harassed her.
And one of Vox's friends talked about raping her. The rest of his followers talked about guns in that thread. And insulted her.
Vox posted my full address and real name and only took it down when I had my information purged.
Vox has accused me of unspeakable crimes and then told me that if I admit to them since he can't actually prove anything, he'll stop harassing me. One of his followers suggests murder-by-proxy.
Vox said that once he gets started, he never, ever stops.

He also supports sex trafficking, marital rape, and shooting protestors Arab dictator style. And said that Malala getting shot was a good thing.
But I guess abiding by 21st century norms isn't game or something.

This is because I reviewed a craptastic evangelical novel he wrote.

All this may be true...but why let someone who you see as hateful poison your life?

Why not live your life for all the good in it?

You are made in the image and likeness of all that is true. You have the ability to bring great good into the world...to live happy, joy-filled days.

Why not just let all this hatred go do its own thing and claim a better way for yourself?

"All this may be true.."

Nope, not one word of it is true. Yama harasses people then acts surprised and hurt when they hold him accountable for it.

For the point of our conversation (mine and Yama's), it doesn't matter if it is true or not. My point is: were it true, it still isn't worth him wasting his time and thought over.

All of what I said is true. I can provide quotes.

Well, the first thing that comes to mind is that knowing the exact age is useful when looking up arrest records, birth certificates, and social security numbers.
Also in a post where he links to a video Emma did.

His idiot followers respond with things like
Dyed hair is yet another one of those triggers which puts the words POOR DECISION MAKER into my mind. Must not click. Life is too short to suffer these horrors.
and
Dyed hair and nose piercing. All she needs now is the heroin addiction and she'll hit the trifecta.
and
How much will someone bet me that she will in good time claim to have been "raped" by a white no doubt very blond white man.
and
First let's look at the packaging: piercings, dyed hair, bad skin... yow. Not to mention the soulless dead eyes. I hate those!
and
That video wasn't that bad......would be more appealing if the "actor/artist" was a real woman instead of an effeminate man.

and most of it is gun talk and painfully unfunny in-jokes that I won't bother to repeat here. It's kinda gross, actually.

The amusing thing was that when I contacted the artist to confirm Pure, Impure's identity, she initially pretended not to know of him.
and
Now, perhaps you have forgotten, but I am literally publishing the book on 4GW, and as you should have learned from the example of McRapey, I may be slow to start, but once I get rolling, I never, ever stop.
and
I'm now giving you the opportunity to turn yourself in, admit your crimes, and ask for leniency. If you do, I will speak up for you on your behalf and welcome you here in your true identity. If you do not, no mercy will be shown to you from those you have harassed for the last 11 years.
AKA blackmail.

I noticed that the number of fake reviews of my books on Amazon declined considerably after I tracked down the woman from Minnesota and posted her address on this blog.

There's enough rope in there to (figuratively) hang Vox. It's too bad Blogspot won't provide a (figurative) scaffold.

Let us imagine for a moment that I entirely agreed with you about Vox...I don't. For one thing, I think he's quite a good writer...but let's imagine we agree.

Would you abandon someone you liked just because the person was talentless, or mouthed off, or even stalked someone? Is that a reason to be cruel to a friend?

I am very sorry that you and Vox don't agree and that it leads to such ill will...but it does not make me want to turn on either of you.

There must be more joyful things you can do thank haunt a man you hate. You deserve happiness.

If he did what Vox did, if he was as vile as Vox, then yes. Without hesitation.

The more people who know that Vox is an arrogant, manipulative, malicious, sociopathic sack of shit with delusions of adequacy, the better.

We will have to just disagree then. I don't believe in giving up on people.

I think God loves you both...no matter what you look like to the rest of us.

He's Trolling You

(Link)
That particular entity has been contacted by the police for cyber-stalking. Do a search on his handle (one of many), on Vox's blog, then shoot him an email to report the activity, and include screen-caps of the postings. He's a very ill individual, worth of pity.

This is a no troll zone...but which I mean, no one is treated as a troll here.

arhyalon, Yama is a documented stalker of Mr. Wright's editor, Vox Day, among many others. His caretakers are supposed to be preventing him from trolling. Until they catch up with him, you should probably not engage him.

Excuse me, but Vox is the stalker here. The basest weapon of untalented, lazy mediocrity against a higher intelligence and greater talent.

He even said "For example, Yama's friend Emma lied to me about knowing him when I contacted her, and if she hadn't overdone the fake sympathy I might have even bought it."

And MrMantraMan, one of his followers, writes: How much will someone bet me that she will in good time claim to have been "raped" by a white no doubt very blond white man.
I interpret that as a threat.

You're back! Hello.

By "greater talent" do you mean yourself? What is it that you do? Are you a writer, too? I was under the vague impression that you are a photographer. Is that true?

I am very sorry that you have had such a bad time between you and Vox. I am very fond of Vox. He is a delightful person to talk to.

But my being fond of Vox does not mean that you cannot come by and express your opinions. You are welcome to come anytime.

Thank you for your concern. I do know who Yamamanama is. He comes by occasionally, and I am always happy to see him. I have told him that I am fond of Vox, but I don't mind if he expresses his opinion. I do wish he would stay and talk to me about something other than Vox occasionally.
