I second the commentators here. FB is a site for men who are angry and want a place to vent their rage with other like minded minions. It is not for practical men of action. If you want to get laid without paying for it, FB is best avoided.

I don’t have any problems with Ferd himself, but I stopped reading In Mala Fide a long time ago; the standards are just too low. The alt-right blogosphere is far too intelligent for a sack of strained Matrix references to be its center. (If it makes sense to talk about an alt-right blogosphere at all; it’s more of a few separate ones — the Roissysphere, the orthosphere, and the Carlylesphere — with a slight bit of overlap. Sure, there’s Bonald and Dalrock, but I’d be surprised if many IMF readers would be caught dead linking to Charlton or Medaille.)

It would be interesting to have a center of the alt-right, but I doubt such a thing would go over very well. The orthosphere and the (generally pagan) ENR in the same room? Oy.

FB is a bad joke. He has zero coherent worldview, just a lot of pointless rage and self-loathing, directed outward. He was briefly interesting when he started but it’s so devolved into an absurd spectacle that he (or IMF – is there a difference?) has become a detriment to the cause (MRA, PUA, any male-related effort), indeed an outright embarrassment. There are many men’s sites I recommend to guys looking to get smart and work up to taking the vaunted Red Pill; IMF is never, ever one of them – it’s just too unfocused and nuts, and tending towards fight-causing among different men’s factions.

I have often wondered if “he” is really a feminist agent provocateur sent to cause dissent in our ranks. Ask yourself: Could s/he do a better job of promoting craziness and lunatic-fringe nonsense among men online if s/he tried?
