Removing "Yes, the Truth Hurts"

I've removed "Yes, the Truth Hurts" from my links.  I've always tried to balance Stelek's decent advice about gaming with his obnoxiousness and attention-whoring, but claiming that dead IRS employees from yesterday's attack should get no sympathy because the IRS is an awful institution is incredibly beyond the pale.  I urge other bloggers to do the same.


  1. Removed him a long time ago. While he does bring the occasional moment of insight most of his "tactics" revolve around abusing RAW and being a dickhead.

    His fantasy commentary in particular brings me many laughs. For example, look at his recent comments on the "strengths" of the new Beastmen book and compare that to my back and forth with him about Ogre Kingdoms and my Skrag list. Talk about hypocrisy! Hilarious!

  2. Agreed. There've been a few good points, but they are few and far between. At some point, the ugliness really outweighs any small benefit, and here we are.

  3. I dont think I ever added him, on that basis. I don't really care if he's a nice guy in real life. Anybody who takes that much joy in antagonising people isn't worth the effort. I applaud you on making this a public declaration, good job!

  4. Honestly, I think Stelek is probably one of the more skilled players on the web these days. His armies are often innovative and use even older codices to their fullest (witness some of his DE, WH, and DH lists, which can be real nightmares). However, he's often an arrogant, self-important ass who tries to bend the rules to suit his purposes.

    I'll read his blog, but I doubt I'd want to play against him.

  5. I did follow him for a while, and you can forgive the odd outburst or wry comment, when the good stuff got swamped by the bad, I walked away.

    The irony is that if he dropped the attitude, he'd probably be the most popular place for tactics on the web.
