I will start this off by quoting my friend alphacentauri from RVF:

You NEED the Lifestyle and Everything Else forums to foster good PUAs, because it's in the forge of these other forums that the solid man is built, for whom it is then easy to become a good PUA. While in the other PUA forums you just have stupid PUA tricks and one-dimensional players and incels.
So it's a mistake to think that you can take the Game/Travel forums from here and move them somewhere else. You will fail to recreate the RVF experience.
RVF is an all-or-nothing formula. So when Roosh says, "take the Game/Travel material and continue it somewhere else, but don't try to supplant RVF wholesale", he is setting up his successor for failure...
I've already said I respect Roosh massively, but the above criticism of his handling of the situation is blindingly obvious to me, so I couldn't hold my tongue... If I have sinned, forgive me for it.
The above summarizes my view of the situation.alphacentauri wrote:This thread should be two threads.
Because blog and forum are two vastly different things.
In the blog you have a dude preaching his stuff.
In the forum you have hundreds.
The magic of RVF was precisely those hundreds of people. The synergistic effect. No amount of blogs can replace that.
There is nothing even remotely close to RVF in existence.
And then, one fine day, the word "sin" became the banner under which the forum will be ran...
And I quote Nietzsche:
“Doubt as sin. — Christianity has done its utmost to close the circle and declared even doubt to be sin. One is supposed to be cast into belief without reason, by a miracle, and from then on to swim in it as in the brightest and least ambiguous of elements: even a glance towards land, even the thought that one perhaps exists for something else as well as swimming, even the slightest impulse of our amphibious nature — is sin! And notice that all this means that the foundation of belief and all reflection on its origin is likewise excluded as sinful. What is wanted are blindness and intoxication and an eternal song over the waves in which reason has drowned.”
The concept of sin "drowns reason"...
And thus reason fled the RVF community... the last great community of rational males on the planet...
RVF is about to turn into an insane asylum: nothing more, and nothing less. That's what happens when leaders experience mental breakdowns. People will be walking on eggshells all over the place to avoid setting off the "SIN!" lightbulb in Roosh's head, and indeed a bunch of them have already been banned for doing so. The level of discourse will nosedive within days, and a month from now the place will be unrecognizable. People are already making threads with titles such as "Immaculate Conception". I kid you not: https://www.rooshvforum.com/thread-73263.html
This is Clown World material. Roosh's forum is now officially part of Clown World. A month from now we will be scrolling down the forums and taking screencaps to post in a new Clown World thread over here. It is a real tragicomedy what's happening over there.
That's my opinion, and that's why I am starting this place.
And every sane male is welcome to join me.
