The Indefensible Mr. Day

When I once referred to Vox Day as an alleged editor, one of his followers browbeat me until I promised never to make such an allegation again.

When I shared excerpts of his new book as part of a Twitter review, his followers demanded I stop attributing such obvious made-up garbage to him.

When I said he has written better things in the past, his followers called me an awful liar.

I know I’m not the first person to wonder why anyone would defend this man, but I feel like when I say it, there’s a slightly different inflection.
