NaNoWriMo is a Cult of Pedophiles

I normally wouldn't comment but it remains amazing to me that Eric's attack on NaNoWriMo from 6 years ago still gets a bunch of angry upset comments. This sort of reaction really only happens when people are irrationally invested in something. You get it from Lyndon LaRouche groupies and Scientologists when you confront them with how insane their sacred ideas are.

And because all cults are by definition cults of pedophiles, clearly NaNoWriMo is some sort of cryptopedophiliac underground designed to seduce young people into an apparently safe environment where they can be preyed on by the pederasts behind the cult conspiracy. It's really obvious when you think about it.

So stop supporting NaNoWriMo, because if you do you're obviously sexually attracted to prepubescent children.


Once again, Ernie, your logic

Once again, Ernie, your logic is irrefutable.

NaNo and Kids

Actually, there were problems along these lines around the third year or so of NaNoWriMo's existence. (I did it one year, wrote crap, and "won." I left for good after discovering that kids were too vulnerable in the message boards. They've since solved a lot of the problems, in part because of people like me being "assertive" on the issue, but there's still way too much exhibitionism by the "erotica" people, who love to shock bystanders in coffee shops, etc. And, of course, all the ego ego ego ego. Just couldn't take it any more. Re. the creeps, I'd say to any parents, monitor like hell if you have a kid participating. They do have decent safeguards in place now, but nothing's perfect.
