Keith Mander claimed that he had family obligations, and that those obligations were why he's not responding to any of the criticism he got over destroying a fanfic site or two with his half-witted avarice.

Turns out that his Family Obligations? A holiday in Thailand.

Personal update: trying to get some fics together, I accidentally had to wipe and reinstall my computer after getting into Glasgow, so all my work on my novel are gone, as are my CV, some old course work, the first 6 parts of the DW/TW fanfic I was working on, and the Other original story that I'd gotten half through, and am feeling wiped out from all the hilly walking Glasgow, and the Uni, is requiring of me (I don't think I ever needed to use an elevator while in somerset, but Glasgow Uni apparently had all their buildings designed by physical-disabilities-hating-people - every building is found at the top of a steep hill, the streets are narrow and poorly cobbled, curbs are high, the graduate flats have no elevators and I'm on the fifth floor, and all the good labs are generally between 5 and 10 floors above ground, and you generally have to ascend stairs to get into buildings, because the ground floor is only at ground level on one side of the building).

The views are awesome though - there's a view from the Boyd Orr building, where the Bio department hangs out, where you can see clean all the way past the edge of the city, to the distant misty hills with their Macross Plus style arrangment of windfarms. And hardly any cameras!!!

It's not a bad city as cities go. In fact, I think I'll keep it.

The bit that caught my eye:
Here is the thing: I am fully okay with exposing what bullshit the SurveyFail dudes were pulling. Sai and Ogi were, imo, condescending jerks who were using bad science and terrible data-gathering methods to try and prove that their sexist "findings" were right and to generally treat women's sexuality like it is something shocking and alien. This is really offensive to me.


To put it in the most blunt and flamey terms possible: you clearly have not fully understood what they actually did.

let me unpack this for you and other people who are not getting it:
