Post SF Tumblr's - Page 11

post #151 of 270

Because now is the time to take your ball and go home.

 

Seriously, I understand that Vox has a lotta love, but his behavior across the entirety of the forum has always struck me as incredibly petulant and childish. It's his choice and he can delete whatever the hell he wants, but the constant deletion of posts, removal of pictures, and stealth editing of threads seriously undermines anyone's ability to engage in a conversation if he's in it.

Can't really answer that, though I think the two go hand-in-hand.

There's a delicate balance here, at least in my mind. You need to care enough about something to keep coming back; to keep generating content; to keep the fire alive; to keep yourself satisfied. However, with this investment comes the realization that you care a great deal about what you are doing. For some that is the whole point. For others, you realize that you are allowing strangers on the internet and the associated confines to affect your mood (for better or for worse). Just like your local sports team losing a game shouldn't wreck your day, you shouldn't be completely frustrated by matters outside your control. And when you try to regain control and find that you cannot, this only heightens your realization that you're too invested in something that's not giving you a lot back.

Realize that aside from all the likes and reblogs, outside of the praise and deification that he received, there was really no payout for Vox to keep doing what he was doing. And, again, once you realize that you are going to great measures to appease people and impress strangers, there's a whole other realization that deriving satisfaction or bewilderment from anonymous ego stroking is completely absurd.

Well, I thought he wrote his blog because it was a satisfying activity for him - it certainly looked so - but if it wasn't, and it generates more frustration than satisfaction, then yes, there's no point in keeping it going. It will be missed though smile.gif

Hopefully Vox'll be back somewhere - I always enjoyed hearing what he had to say. I figured he disappeared the first time because someone I.D.'d him - he had dropped some clues here and there over the years that could have probably been used to figure out who he was. Id guess this is also the reasons he deleted most of his posts.

The first time he vanished I figured someone started bothering him outside the confines of SF. Maybe that happened again - I can see how it might interfere with his Bilderderg Group and Trilateral Commission work (oh shit, I just gave away another secret!)

I know similar issues (or simply annoyance with getting 20,000 of the same questions over and over) have driven others away. It's too bad - the "old guard" here was something special. Even the insufferable assholes sometimes had interesting stuff to share.

Yeah it was a reboot, fortunately.

I like Vox's fits, but his attitude is a bit childish--especially, for a grown man. If he's just got bored he, then it's fine, if he leaves, but, if it's because he's 'better' than us, then he needs to grow up.

I like Vox, and I think it's sad that he left. His style is impeccable and some of his written contributions to this forum are unparallelled in quality.

don't be so hard on yourself, I wouldn;t call you "insufferable".

Vox reactivated his Tumblr. Whoever in this threak was responsible for sacrificing a goat upon his return might want to get on that.

Who cares? He is fucking awesome.

Deal.

I'm at http://cosmedaniel.tumblr.com and may actually be following and re-blogging quite a few of you.

 

But I spice it up from time to time with photos of Mexico, Mexican food, and Mexicanisms.
