This Is Not a Post

It's just a number: 155. Or rather, more than 345 to go.

My latest crazy idea is that anyone reading this non-post click on the link above and get Scott Eric Kaufman blogging again. He's writing on Wharton and listening to Asia, people. We need to stage a blogoramawide intervention. Asia!

This is a crisis that makes CitizenSE's first troll being a white supremacist insignificant (check out the comments on yesterday's post if you wish--I pledged not to delete his there so long as he doesn't delete mine on his).

End non-post. Back to bloggy solidarity.

Seriously, at this point, you must feel like you're manning the blogger ER or something.

Also, I'm pleased to announce that great minds think alike. From September 2006, "This Is Not A Post".

Enjoyed your post, Joseph, although I suspect I'd need to have been reading since 12/05 to catch all the in-jokes and allusions to have enjoyed it as much as it deserves. I can barely keep up with your present output!

By the way, I think James Joyce broke teh intertubes. Scott's been stuck at 155 for awhile.

It's not really the blogger ER, it's (as I wrote in a dashed-off poem comparing comment threads to open mic poetry sessions that no one seems to have gotten) that we fix each other's houses.

Joseph, your succession of identities is dizzying, especially since you're become Joseph twice. (Born-again?) Constructivist, are there actually two Constructivists posting? I thought I once saw you refer to that other Constructivist, though I didn't know whether you'd sort of partitioned off part of yourself or not.

Hey Rich, welcome to CitizenSE. I'm the only "The Constructivist" I know of, but in case of confusion, I'm the one being as unserious as possible!

Exactly what kind of tryst have you going on with said supremacist? Is that some kind of subliminal message? Are the readers of your blog supposed to flood his comment section with inter-ethnic love? A sort of inter-ethnic-love-spam-task-force?

Well, there are white supremacists and white supremacists. I've found Race Traitor gets interesting reactions from the former group (the ones who want to defend their position and so have to engage or appear to engage others' arguments). Although the love thing might work, now that you mention it. This wasn't a death threat, it wasn't racist in its language ("just" its ideas), it was spelled pretty well, and it tried to advance an argument (anti-racists are anti-white) that I actually have a decent comeback to (cf. Race Traitor). So I thought, "what the hell, why not?"

BTW, if you check out the debates I've had at one of my other blogs on race, you'll see why I find the above argument easy to shoot down.
