In response to my last Voxopedia post, there has been a bit of a defensive reaction from VD and crew. At his main blog Vox has announced that the daily average page views are now rivalling his own blog. That’s a harder stat to confirm but it seems unlikely.
Meanwhile at the support blog Vox has added a hysterically funny fan mail letter: https://infogalactic.blogspot.com.au/2016/12/fan-mail.html
“Today, I did a quick internet search (Google) for “Shiva” to verify a detail or two. I clicked on the Wikipedia link. By the end of the second brief paragraph, I was already informed of “the goddess tradition of Hinduism called Shaktism” and how it considers Parvati to be “the equal complementary partner” of Shiva.
Hmm. Is Shaktism so prevalent or important that it must be introduced before we learn anything more of Shiva? Also, I can understand how Parvati may be “complementary”, but the addition of “equal” smelled too SJWish. I went to Infogalactic to see how its page differs.
On Infogalactic, the offending lines are absent, among other changes.
I am impressed. I am also encouraged. I don’t know where Infogalactic will lead or what all it will accomplish. I can only imagine what providing a more pure source of information may do, how it may affect all the minds searching for information. What if our youth become accustomed to the *lack* of SJW propaganda, and as a result become similarly skeptical when they meet it, as I did today? You are saving lives and securing the future.”
I think you can all guess the amusing twist. The ‘Shiva’ page on Voxopedia is just an old copy of the Wikipedia page from when the Voxopedia crew copied Wikipedia over. http://web.archive.org/web/20161219095859/https://infogalactic.com/w/index.php?title=Shiva&action=history It hasn’t been edited since and Voxopedia editors have made no contributions to it (as such).
I guess that is a kind of conservatism? Celebrating the more inherent rightness of a January Wikipedia page over the degenerate decadence of a December Wikipedia page.
Anyway…to cheer them up, here is a graph of their registered members:
It continues to attract members, its just that they don’t edit articles.
