    Long-winded life story required for membership



    Anecdotal stories from anonymous people. How's that plausible?

    The #MeToo movement is real. The gender war is real. Toxic femininity is real. Three plausible facts.

    By the way: fuck Coach Red Pill, and bring back Johnny MGTOW.

    Work it backwards! This is a functioning website appreciated by its members. How'd that happen?

    You're MGTOW so you can think it out. Do so.

    I would explain further but you need to put in the mental work instead of channeling someone else's idea in a gif which keeps you dependent.

    Re: Long-winded life story required for membership

    Well, I find my own intro plausible. I wrote it, I know it's pretty accurate.

    What are you really trying to say, OP? You'd like us to waive the intro requirement just for you? No. The answer is no. There are half a gazillion fora you can join on the web. To join this one, you must post a long-winded life story. Neither the owner, nor the mods, nor everyone else - each of whom has posted their story - is going to apologise for it or make an exception.

    Even if you are accepted the micro manage everything you post and kick you out if they don't like it. I should know I was booted.

    Generally, everybody who got booted could say that. May I ask, are you only now willing to communicate in a way that might have helped you before?

    You describe our intro’s as anecdotal. Well, maybe they are to the casual reader but understand that to us they relate to what has made us who we are. Their telling can often be painful and to dismiss them so lightly seems to me contemptuous of our struggles in life. My ‘anecdote’ is very real to me!

    Not only are introductions useful to weed out possible infiltrators, they also give an indication of how forthcoming potential members are going to be with their personal experiences. Or to put it another way, do they have something of their own to talk about that might enlighten or educate the rest of us?

    Above all honesty is what I seek here. I don’t mind if other members’ views are different to my own – why shouldn't they be, our experiences are often different after all – so long as the basic concept of MGTOW is first and foremost.

    Re: Long-winded life story required for membership

    My father was a POW in WW II. One of their many quirks was they don't want to talk about it. So much so that they wont even talk about why they don't want to talk about it. I had a girlfriend once who changed her name and moved to the other end of the country just so no one would know her childhood. She would rather die than see her story reveled, and my friends, she did just that. These two, though otherwise honest, were world class sneaks when it came to hiding their past.

    We're not asking for anything like that, but a little honesty is the price of admission. You'll notice that our fearless leader never asks for money, nor does he seem to care how often there's only a half a dozen of us logged on. If a little honesty's too much to pay, well you don't deserve to be here, nor do we want members like that. What kind of site would it be if any asshole could just walk in the door?

    Re: Long-winded life story required for membership

    The only reason this forum still stands amongst the myriad of other forums is that the principles around a detailed introduction is upheld. Newbies get asked several questions and even after they have been accepted fellow members will still doubt them.

    Infiltrators always try to shame us with 'paranoia' but we have a good reason for it.

    Whatever you post, you are taking a risk. And if you aren't even willing to share a few details about yourself, then how can we trust that you have our backs?

    If ever we become too lax with regards to the intro requirement, this forum will be over for sure. I feel we are already too relaxed actually.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.
    Radfems are your best friend, because they hate you and verbalise it - that's honesty!

    The red pill rage is a process which takes many many years - so be kind and patient with yourself.

    Hmm, interesting. In the absence of specific feedback, and speaking only for myself, I've been imagining what members here may think about severity, what with my near-monthly public Banhammer-Nachts and when I'm like a pit-bull with what some Intros/newbies say or don't say. I'd be curious where you think we are or may be slacking. We, meaning any of us, members, me, anyone.

    Separate from that, it appears I was the Mod who banned the OP of this thread but he isn't taking me up on my offer to review his case here. I'm curious why he came back, but only to a point, stopping once I took him seriously. Does that mean he was not serious for redress, but came here to further process our rejection of him? I think he misses us, a natural response since he feels wronged.

    Re: Long-winded life story required for membership

    Yeah, some rookies think your Hitler, but so what? Are you wrong sometimes? Sure, but again, so what? Is there a member here who does intros and hasn't been wrong? None I can think of. Have we chased off good members on occasion? That we have, and I'm sorry for any part I played, but what's done is done.

    Some guys get more questions, others less. Worse yet, some get none at all after spilling their guts. Nobody likes that much. Is it cause we're picky one week and not another? You wouldn't think so, but who knows?

    Could be. I admit to having variations of mood across the days and this may evidence in an inconsistency that I cannot see, but others can. But there is so much variance in Intro style and completeness. What people state versus what they only imply. What gets inferred by the reader. What does not. What gets misunderstood. What gets overlooked. The usual error of perception overlaying any of this. A fluctuation of omnipresence of a Mod.

    On the last factor, as of late I'll try letting an Intro percolate without any immediate summary judgement from me, even for days, hoping the membership will weigh in with any questions for the newbie, to spread out the discussion rather than just me rolling the Hitler tanks in, so to speak, gambling that if there is no peer response the silence does not look like the slack to which Opaque may be referring. In all this, there will be variety in trying to keep out the blues and the purples.

    Re: Long-winded life story required for membership

    I'd be curious where you think we are or may be slacking. We, meaning any of us, members, me, anyone.
    One example is when a would be member makes an introduction and either gets an instant 'welcome'.
    Of course, we must be sensitive to the fact that certain would be members may have communication issues, they may be scared of getting doxxed etc.

    This is why we should be gently questioning them further and further and further until we feel comfortable to take them on board. Some might find this annoying and tedious. Speaking from my experience, if the red pill penetrates enough, you wouldn't mind writing a 10 page introduction on the suffering and hell females (and anti-mgtow males) have caused on you.

    As men, we need to know that a price must be paid. Nothing is free, absolutely nothing. This is why women excel in political activism. They would not hesitate to kick out any women that disagrees even in the slightest with the feminist agenda.

    I am not advocating we go that far. Some men here may have differing views on Biology, Evolution, the existence of God, Economics, Psychology. That is fine, and room for individuality should be encouraged - but not to the extent that it challenges the MGTOW worldview.

    And sometimes, some members challenge the MGTOW worldview in ways which I am uncomfortable with. I have no right to tell them they are wrong. Personally speaking, I don't like it when tradcon rhetoric is discussed and seen as an alternative. Or when a hard patriarchy is offered as a solution. This, in my opinion is anti-MGTOW.

    Overall, what I am railing against is this idea (which I sense is pervasive in the MGTOW community) that we are instantly some sort of monolithic entity and we are 'brothers' who are here to just accept, get along and agree!

    This is another potential downfall and if we aren't careful, we will become some lukewarm mainstream Jordan Peterson fan types with nothing insightful to offer; only recycled slogans : 'women are emotional, men are rational'. 'women cannot be engineers, men aren't suited to child rearing'.

    So I say let's be sensitive and caring towards each other, but also challenge bad/incorrect ideas. I feel ideas should be challenged more.
    A mother cannot raise a boy to be a man, not because he needs a father figure; but because she favours team vagina over her own son.

    Tradcon women are the most manipulative of all kinds of women, because they infect you with false hope.

    Either an instant "welcome" or... what? "Either" means a comparison is coming. Your statement kinda ended there.

    But I've talked about that word "welcome" and yeah how it can be a premature signal to the registrant.

    As I've said before, tact is the art of making a point without making an enemy. Discussion is good.

    @ Opaque

    I agree with much of what you say here.

    With regards new member intro’s I’m a little cautious. I agree we don’t want to let just anyone in, that would IMO diminish the site’s purpose, but being overly inquisitive may put off people who just want to join a community of like-minded individuals – the effort may not seem equal to the return. I have asked questions of prospective members just as I was asked questions myself, but the last thing I want to do is deter fellow MGTOW from joining. As far as I’m concerned the more voices there are the more I learn so long, as you say, MGTOW is at the core.

    The challenging of ideas is at the core of who I am. How can we begin to understand what is going on around us unless we are free to debate and discuss. Yes we are all MGTOW and that gives us something in common. We all appreciate the illusion that is being woven around us and when one of us points to something that accentuates that fact why shouldn’t we give each other a slap on the back and say ‘well done’.


    On the other hand if someone makes a point that any of us disagree with, we should be free to say so, preferably by backing up our dissent with some pertinent info whether it be stats or real life experience.

    This is not directed at you personally as I know you are well able, but to all members, if you disagree with something being said – speak out.


    Debate and discussion is the beginning of understanding.

    Yup, that's James Rolfe (a.k.a. Angry Video Game Nerd) I would unofficially dub him as the king of old school since his schtick is critiquing games from the 80's in the most vulgar way possible. Made for pretty good laughs. He's still active on YouTube but his character as AVGN is on semi-retirement as he's ventured on other content, like calmly critiquing movies from the 80's and 90's with 3 of his friends. By how long he's been on I'm sure he's already gone through the library of shit-tier NES, Atari, SNES & Genesis games to bitch about.

    Back on topic, different strokes for different folks. This is the method here to basically vet people if they qualify to be on the site or not. I didn't mind the process, I like the fact that a lengthy intro is the norm because I have a lot to say on most things and dialogue is noticed and appreciated very well here, which is very rare in this day and age where the common human has the attention span of a squirrel.

    I've done this several times. Someone says hi without being defensive, hits the points in the "how to intro" without being cookie-cutter, seems pretty human - good enough. I'm not Norman the Doorman, "Naah, mate, them shoes is casual".

    There isn't a big downside to admitting someone. If they turn out to be a problem, we can ban 'em later in due course. Oh sure, there's big negatives to admitting everyone. But the intro mostly serves its purpose of immediately filtering out certain kinds of people (the antisocial, the infiltrators), and of kicking off that initial conversation.

    But does it filter out great walls of copycat text?
