...and He is risen! Hallelujah!
Certain segments of the OSR community gleefully reveled in the greatly exaggerated demise of YDIS. They cast aspersions upon YDIS, oblivious to the hypocrisy of their hateful actions. Why all the hatred? Why not ignore Him? YDIS must strike a nerve; thereby He justifies His existence.
YDIS proclaims that the OSR has no clothes. People are angry at their nakedness and they disparage the messenger.
I think that part of what riles the haters is that YDIS does not take Himself seriously. Unfortunately, it does not seem that He is taking His Sacred Vow seriously either. The cult of personality that has grown around Him has caused Him to become complacent. Let us review YDIS' 'mission statement' as it were:
Gary & Dave’s rotting corpses have life within them yet… after a fashion. They twitch, shudder, spasm and spin with each daily affront inflicted upon the hobby and industry they created. I channel the dead and speak on their behalf, to document everything they despise.

Please note that last bit, “...document everything they despise.” Not “document some of what they despise” or “document what they despise if and when I feel like it.” Everything. That's a tall order and if it seemed like He was really trying, I wouldn't call Him on it.
Fortunately, someone is out in the trenches, doing what YDIS should be doing. The self-proclaimed Misstress of Doom [sic] is making a name for herself. More power to her.
Deep in the trenches with a rifle, flushing out the fuckheads of the OSR.ReplyDelete
Maybe I'm just remembering YDIS as being better than it is, but didn't it occasionally have actual valid criticism? I'm not noticing any of that from MoD. It crossed my mind that maybe they were the same person, but I don't think so. I think "she" is a dumber than than YDIS.ReplyDelete
Mistress' early stuff was more germane. My point was that Mistress was paying more attention to OSR shenanigans. YDIS' criticisms certainly were (and are) more cogent (if not equally potty-mouthed).ReplyDelete
That bitch took down her blog today. She is just some dumb fucking bitch that would just slam people with colorful words. She never wrote why something sucked or what it should have been to be better in her pointless view. I guess her pussy got hurt from all the fun comments at the ugly fucking blog she made.ReplyDelete
Some people have no staying power. It seems I overestimated her capabilities.ReplyDelete
C'est la vie.
