Neil Clark scores hit on Gimlet
Neil Clark seems to have won a victory in his long running feud with Gimlet Kamm. You had better go and read the whole thing yourself, because it's a long and complicated tale that relates to who deleted or altered whose Wikepedia entry.
My view of all of this is that I am glad that Neil can piss once again all over Gimlet, but I do have my doubts as to the utility of this particular slash. Put bluntly, is it worth it?
Neil runs the risk of giving credibility to Gimlet just at the moment when people have started laughing out loud at the short-arsed little fucker. Don't believe me - take a butcher's at the comments to this load of old wank. Then ask yourself why the sub-editors ever let it through? Could they have been having a laugh as well? The point is not that Neil hasn't marshalled his evidence and made his case - the point is that you don't make a case against middle class cockroaches: you just find their point of weakness and go for them like a terrier does with a rat.
In the case of Gimlet, the simple fact that the short-arsed little fucker takes himself so seriously is evidence enough to me that what we need to do is just take the piss out of the little maggot. Cunt wants to talk about something; we prefer to chat about the fact that during three years at Oxford he didn't get one single recorded shag. Shit, my 14 year old has managed to get his end away, so why couldn't Gimlet?
He couldn't because he was a figure of fun. All the information that I managed to obtain about his time at university points to that conclusion: half remembered anecdotes about a pathetic, poisonous little dwarf that people felt a mixture of contempt and loathing for. This is a creature who wore suits to try and give himself gravitas. Gimlet, it didn't fucking work, did it?
Taking this cockroach seriously enough to point out his errors and scams is a mistake in my opinion. In a strange sort of way, it raises the short-arsed little fucker up to our level, and makes him a worthy enemy. He isn't. Creatures like him are treated with contempt even by their supposed friends - that's why faction after faction at Oxford used him and dumped him. That's why he crawled away to his college, never to be seen again.
Gimlet Kamm: no glittering prize, and not even a shag to make up for it.
Fuck him, just as one day we will fuck his class.
