Twitter Bans Milo. Rabid Puppies Release Ballot

Milo Banned

Twitter's ongoing animosity toward Breitbart Tech editor Milo Yiannopoulos has now culminated in Twitter permanently banning him from their social network service.

The company claimed that the reason for Milo's ban was his alleged incitement of a sexist/racist tweetmob. As we've come to expect by now, the allegations proved to be trumped up charges straight out of thought police gaslighting 101.

Milo's real crime? Posting a negative review of a movie that most folks with a working sense of humor found insufferable.


Not to worry. As with Twitter's last attempt to censor Milo, he will only become more powerful than they could possibly imagine.

He hasn't even attained his final form yet!

In Hugo News

Rabid Puppies Supreme Dark Lord Vox Day has announced how he plans to vote in this year's Hugo Awards.

As was the case with the RP nomination ballot, yours truly makes a cameo appearance on the final list.

Reminder: if you haven't voted for this year's Hugos yet, July 31 is the deadline to cast your final ballot.

And if you long for the day when Hugo nominees wrote fun, thrilling SFF that didn't denigrate its own audience, I'm bringing it back!

  1. I'm not all the way through it yet (moving interstate is an unholy bitch) but I will say that so far, Souldancer is even better than Nethereal.

    1. Believe me, I empathize with your ordeal.

      Thanks for the preliminary report on SD. It's highly gratifying to know that we're in agreement.

    1. Unlike the Hugos, Campbell nominees stay eligible for two years. The authors with asterisks are in their second and final year of eligibility.
