Kiwi Farms’ WordPress Chicken Finally Comes Home To Roost

Posted in Uncategorized on June 18, 2019 by themaresnest

You’d have to have a heart of stone not to laugh. And yet we also feel a little sad at the tedious inevitability of it all.

Last Friday, the little shits at Kiwi Farms were snarking over one of their long running victims for torment, WordPress‘s Samambreen, who linked to us after this (see the end part).

As we said at the time, certainly we did not approve of her blog (there are no political, ethical or ideological ‘absolutes’ in a complex world), but were somewhat concerned at her zealotry towards them, which of course is what they relied on. In their Cartesian world, ‘I troll, therefore I am,’ – thus kill them with your indifference.

As per usual they started doing their best to push her buttons, ‘she should be locked up,’ ‘she’s likely to kill herself’, etc, etc – the same routine troll shittiness they’ve been dishing out for years from the safety of being on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean and not being within fist in the face distance in order to get a reaction.

And then this happened.

Aw, Mummy’s Little Gobshite’s lost his revenue stream!

 

This was inevitably going to happen – they piss off someone enough who has the wherewithall or the life circumstances so they will work 24/7 to have their revenge.

Anyone familiar with the nonsense world of parapolitics, UFOlogy, ghost hunting, etc. knows the score with what’s going on here; that ghostworld of the lonely and ignored, where feuds and counterfeuds are part and parcel of the construction of an alternate reality where they are, instead, ‘important’.

Inevitably things get out of hand when they start trying dragging those in the real world into their bumnuggetry. Service providers (printers, venue providers, internet website platforms, secure financial transferrers) decide dealing with people or organisations whose custom means getting a load of equally nutty fruitcakes demanding they cease doing so, jamming up their communication lines (land mail, email, fax, etc) and taking up their business time – to say nothing of providing unwelcome publicity – is more trouble than its worth.

Once the precedent is set, this can be used as leverage against other organisations who will, naturally, be even more reluctant to retain such custom. On and on it goes, until the individual or organisation in question is forced to set up its own printing presses, website provision, whatever – and with it the full liability by which they can be prosecuted. Which was the intent all along.

The truth is, in these scenarios there’s never any winners. Once one side gets a ‘victory’, they’ve got to find a new target, a new victory, whereas the one who was defeated seeks revenge. On and on it goes, until they start getting hurt in the real world.

The only thing to do, is let them get on with it – and never get involved directly.
