A warning of what is to come from Neon Revolt in the aftermath of Reddit disappearing /r/GreatAwakening despite its 300,000 subscribers.
The simple fact is that /r/GreatAwakening was one of the most vital and important hubs of Q-related activity to date. And now it is gone.
Part of the reason for its popularity was that it allowed relevant info to travel along a vector with tremendous velocity, carried along by a stream of upvotes. This mechanism, while not perfect (and while also exploitable) worked well enough most of the time for our purposes – and make no mistake; we were on target to surpass a million subscribers in short order – which is why they shut us down. We were a direct threat to their hegemony, so they had to shut it down.
Another reason it proved so popular was, unlike the chans (which are anarchic, at best) it also allowed for “Offensive content” to be filtered out – either by mods, or by the users through the use of downvotes. And if you’ve spent any time on the chans, you know that they’re often filled with porn, gore, and all sorts of offensive material.
Yes, even Q’s board.
It’s important to realize that not all this is organic. A lot of this noise is actually produced by bots attempting to derail the discussion.
That doesn’t make it any easier to pick through, but it’s an essential understanding to have.
So, roughly speaking, autists would be working on the official research boards, compiling all their knowledge, hashing things out – and then someone would repost the most vital pieces of info to /r/GreatAwakening, and usually, it would be upvoted very quickly – often within a half hour of it first appearing on the chans – because people generally recognize and spread valuable content.
UNDERSTAND – EVERYTHING is going to go offline at some point, save 8ch.
You won’t be able to find news outside of it, very soon. And when you’re there, there’s not going to be any vote tallies, or recognizable names to tell you how to think, or what’s important to pay attention to. You can’t see u/NeonRevolt, or u/SerialBrain2 or u/Whoever, because we will all ultimately be #Anons.
UNDERSTAND – There’s not going to be a Reddit, or a Voat, or a Gab, possibly even a Neon Revolt in the coming months.
There’s only going to be 8ch. Don’t get me wrong, I have backups of everything – but I’m anticipating the entire Internet going down for a bit, as per Q.
There is no telling to what extent the Internet is going to go down, but I can assure you that you won’t have any warning. You’ll just go to a site and it won’t be there. Just this morning, for example, I discovered that all four Gun Ghoul KDP titles are being blocked by Amazon. We’re working to sort that out. We briefly took down the Dark Legion Direct listing ourselves this weekend, but only to permit a faster change over to the Dark Legion-branded print edition that is now complete. As we were also informed that Corrosion aka The Corroding Empire will no longer be sold on Amazon because it has been deemed “misleading” to Amazon’s customers, this may indicate an all-too-familiar hand at work.
Anyhow, to maximize your chances of being alerted to the relevant backup location of this blog, be sure to subscribe to either the Castalia Book Club mailing list or the Daily Meme Wars list. To follow Qanons without the noise and grotesqueries, go here. And while you’re at it, consider getting on board with the AH:Q campaign.
UPDATE: Curiouser and curiouser. Corrosion was restored without us even having to register a complaint.
