Something interesting I noticed through the whole donations campaign are some comments Dragoneer made apparently trying to convince people to donate. At least twice, he compared his donation drive to the one Kage conducted for Fernando's Cafe
in Pittsburgh, but seems to be under the impression that Fernando's closed. It's not. In fact, they just had a health inspection on Thursday
The money is going back into the site and I will be transparent about it. At least I'm not trying to raise 20K for a sandwich shop which is planning on closing anyway.
@sabledrakon And unlike Fernando's, we're not shutting down!
Of course, since this is Dragoneer, there's probably a time where he expressed the exact opposite feelings. Sure enough, back in 2012, donating to Fernando's was "fucking awesome":
For those bitching about donations for Fernando's... Furries are donating to save people's jobs. I'm sorry, but that's fucking awesome.
I can only guess that at the time, his hatred for Vivisector prompted him to take the exact opposite stance that we had, and over the course of two years that faded and his hatred of Kage overtook him.
It's probably also worth noting that since the DDoS, he has gone on a crusade both on Twitter and Reddit to vehemently deny all claims that this is some sort of scam, to the point that's almost all he's replying to. With defenses ranging from "Why would I keep my site down the longest!?!?
" to complete nonsense
, surely he would make Baghdad Bob proud.
Bonus computer nerd content: He is pretty convinced that WD Green drives are "enterprise grade"
