The Usurper

I am the one who changed the password. You can call me The Usurper. And I may change it again, just because I can.

Now that Aldie has retired, the aid blog scene is as boring as a peace-corps party given for the local mormon missionaries. Even this place starts to look more like some retard's tedious myspace (please-please friend-me). 

Here is a fact: aid blogs get as much critical thinking as the UN's strategic plan. I have just done a round and for fuck's sake people, have some dignity. 

All you get is pretentious wankers writing endlessly about some obscure shit or if not, some other sort of long, tedious, self-important masturbation of people who most certainly perpetuate the sort of inneffective "aid systems" they are busy rationalizing on their stupid blogs. You get categorical statements and pompous attempts to formulate pseudo-scientific principles about "aid", in bullet points. And you get smug, patronizing morons desperate to attract more hits on their shitty websites and please anyone "influential" enough to get them a like and a follower on twitter.

It's like a ride in an UNDPKO elevator, but worse.  

You even get people trying to sell their own t-shirts and mugs (Aldie even you are twitter chums with some of them).   

Who the fuck reads all this shit, never-mind write it? When do they find the time to "save lives" and apply the higher standards they preach?

What you people need is more beer. And a life.

Piss me off and I'll return with links.

PS - Aldie, if you delete my post you are a shit like the rest of them and I'll change the password again.

  1. @The Usurper. If you don't like aid blogs, why read them? And more particularly, why piss on the one aid blog that's actually agrees with you?

  2. The Usurper writes like someone with ready access to real entertainment. And beer. Perhaps s/he'd have more sympathy if s/he spent a bit of time in the field where navel-gazing is often all the entertainment on offer.

    i personally get hours of enjoyment watching missionaries party. Really. Soft-porn music vids have got nothing on the missionary chicks who crashed a party i was at a couple of weeks ago. Someone among the actual invitees had the presence of mind to check, so that we did not base our mocking on mere assumptions and they were actual honest-to-god (in every sense of the word) virgins, too.

    Usurper, if i shouldn't be wasting my time with aid blogs and watching missionaries bump and grind for baby jesus, put your money where your mouth is and give me something better to do (and seriously, you're going to have to lift the bar above "beer").

  3. Hi Usurper - if I'm not mistaken "self-loathing" was already done on a more popular aidsnark blog a few days ago.
