I am posting this in hopes of avoiding repetitions of this predictable conversation.

Doubtless filled only with the purest desire to offer constructive criticism on how to win friends and influence people on Reddit, yet unable to find the "send message" button so necessary for that purpose, the bombastic midwit Anathemat1ze instead talked his way onto my mute list.

He might be the first Redditor to agree with my SJW takeover thesis about DCSS' decline, so I was inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt. But he was obviously clueless about human nature. The way to mellow an embattled fellow is to take his side, not jab his pride. Instead he did the tone police routine, which turns me quite mean. Cucking after all's obscene.

Anyway, this was boring and annoying, so if I see this pattern happening again, I'll cut it off sooner.

You can read the exchange here. It's quoted below.

SJW takeovers are always nepotistic and cliquey. It's their nature.
Silicon Valley literally sips soy, and I wouldn't be surprised if the average dev leaned left for the last decade. Thus DCSS didn't see a dramatic demographic shift, as when a conservative institution is converged by SJWs. Rather, it was a posiopathic tightening of the rightward edge of the Overton Window to eventually exclude significant portions of the Alt-Lite, in lockstop with the larger culture war. If you don't see that as SJW action, then you're likely a believer in coincidence over conspiracy. Which is why I collect quotes.

"SJW" has become a dated meme. Best not obscure that their true agenda is the eradication of western tradition through the pillaging and humiliation of its descendants.
Might be getting a bit too spicy for reddit, eh? That's humiliation for you.

The fashionable overuse of "SJW" by people who never understood the book is irrelevant to my technically correct deployment of it here.
I assume you don't know who I am, and assure you that I am far too extreme for Reddit, which is why I don't value its approval.

Unless our explanation is meticulous, common misunderstandings undermine the effectiveness of denouncing others as SJWs. People are less likely to take you seriously for unironically throwing around buzzwords which match one or more of the various categories of evil within their minds.
Why do people conflate justice with social justice? It's intentional. The latter masquerades as the former despite having nothing to do with the impartial fact assessment and fair resolution associated with criminal accusations in a civilized society. There cannot be dissenting interpretations of justice because subjectivity leads to injustice by definition. The sophistic modification of an established concept is utilized to hide their diametrically opposed agenda through association, lest redundant terminology serves no purpose.
It may seem off-topic to be discussing such things here, but I think many disagreements over how the game is being handled stem from this increasing cultural divide. Those who identify with the political left tend to frame destabilization as necessary/progressive (self-serving or otherwise), while those who identify with the political right are more resistant to change within working systems (even if efficacy is in question).

Clearly you haven't figured out what I'm doing.

Say something true
Get downvoted to oblivion
Prove it
Use the downvotes to destroy the community's credibility.

One of the purposes of this project is to show the instinctive hostility of contemporary society to heterodox truth. But I'd be lying if I said I wasn't having fun.

Overt scathing dissidence is unproductive when most normies interpret the world through their emotions rather than heed objective principles. They don't care about proof or justifications, you're simply considered a bad guy if you disagree with the status quo.
If you're trying to make the community look bad by intentionally discrediting yourself (?), who are you doing it for? I doubt there are many lurking eyeballs upon this subreddit.

I don't care what you think is productive. Did I ask for your advice? Did I hire you? No.
I don't care what the DCSS community thinks. I picked this subject for Bibliodemos' Textmind demo because it's trivial. I needed someone to make an example of, who I wouldn't mind alienating.
Lastly, I am not concerned about building an audience. That happens automatically for me. What I care about is ensuring I build upon a foundation of truth. Which is why I care zero about the opinions of people incapable of grasping it.

Doesn't make much sense to be so passionate about expressing "the truth" if you couldn't care less about whether you're actually making a positive difference.
If the DCSS subreddit is your testing ground, then I assume you're here to learn from mistakes rather than just repeat them elsewhere.

You don't understand what I'm doing, much less why, and I'm uninterested in enlightening you, due to passive aggressive diction such as "humiliated", "discredited" and "mistakes". Go be a Reddit consultant for someone else.

To clarify:
My prior use of the word "humiliation" was not directed at you.
You admitted seeking to be discredited in the eyes of this subreddit through provoking animosity.
You are certainly making mistakes given that your implicit goal is to convince someone otherwise you wouldn't bother posting at all.
How is it not passive aggressive to suggest that someone is too small-minded and uninteresting to possibly comprehend your supposedly flawless plan in response to basic questioning? More introspection will help if you wish to avoid psychological projection.
This compelled roleplay of yours has metastasized to the extent of considering everyone an enemy no matter what. Dial down the intensity and people might be more receptive.

[*NB Anathemat1ze edited his summary of what I "admitted" to make it less wrong, well after I'd replied. Reddit doesn't permit seeing the version history. Nevertheless, he is still wrong. Indifference to provoking a negative response is not the same as deliberately provoking a negative response. Gamma deception is built on small shifts of meaning like this. I haven't deliberately tried to irritate any members of the DCSS community, and I doubt I ever will. This project is already too ambitious without adding meaningless interpersonal goals.]

Yes, I didn't think you were in complete control of your diction, which is why I let it slide. But it also started you off on the wrong foot. What you are doing is gamma behavior, offering unsolicited advice, presuming to understand things you know nothing about, starting passive aggressive conflict under the guise of aid. It's obnoxious and you should drop the habit.
No, I have admitted no such thing. Stop assuming you understand my goals.
I didn't say the plan was flawless. I said you don't know what it is. And given your failures of reading comprehension so far, I have no desire to explain anything to you anymore.
You've ignored my very strong hints, so I'll make it absolutely explicit: Stop giving me advice, stop talking to me about this, or I'll mute you.

So you're the alpha? I think you just lack humility.
Go ahead and press the mute button, then you won't have to deal with yet another know-nothing bug-brained pest tugging at your insecurities.

No, I'm not the alpha. You, however, write like a submission to r/IamVerySmart:

The problem is that you aren't. Muted.

Definitely struck a nerve.
