PUA Roosh V Shutters his gross website when people stop paying attention to him

From We Hunted The Mammoth: http://www.wehuntedthemammoth.com/2018/10/01/roosh-v-gives-up-with-no-one-paying-attention-to-him-any-more-the-pickup-artist-puts-down-his-flagship-website/

Roosh V is having another sad. Just three weeks after Amazon stopped selling nine of his books, the date rape expert, baking enthusiast and former Most Hated Man in the World has decided to shut down his flagship Return of Kings website. In a post on the site today, Roosh announced that

Iím putting ROK on an indefinite hiatus so I can take a break from the daily grind of maintaining the site. I donít know when the hiatus will end.

The reason? A mixture of deplatforming and nobody giving a shit about him any more.

The first factor for this hiatus is that site revenues are too low. Weíve been banned from Paypal and countless ad partners, which forced me to lay off the site editor last year and also lower payments to regular contributors.

Huh. Apparently deplatforming hate sites works.

Iím sure many of you understand that we are in the early stages of a censorship wave that will sweep through society. Scoundrels like myself get banned first, and then soon the hammer will come down on anyone who dares to share the truth.

Roosh wants us to believe that ďcensorshipĒ ó by which he means getting kicked off of platforms like PayPal for violating their rules on hate speech ó is driving him out of business. While itís certainly true that deplatforming makes life more difficult for hate-speechifiers like Roosh, thatís not why his traffic is down.

No, that slump in traffic is far more likely to be the result of two other factors. The first has nothing to do with Roosh himself: the fact is that traffic has fallen considerably at independent media sites across the political spectrum due in large part to changes Facebook has made since the 2016 election to the way it handles its news feed. (Indeed, Facebook used to be the single biggest social media source of traffic for We Hunted the Mammoth by far, but now itís been overtaken by Twitter. )


Good riddance. Roosh was once a popular figure in the PUA (Pick Up Artist) and MRA (Men's Rights Activist) circles, but people finally figure out he's just a one-trick pony. He's been increasingly irrelevant for a couple years now, and like so many of his ilk, he's finding out that his Super Intellectual Speech is actually hate speech and is against the AUP of most of the platforms he uses.

If you're unfamiliar with Roosh, this is the dude who figured we can just stop rape by making it legal (http://www.wehuntedthemammoth.com/2015/02/17/pickup-guru-roosh-v-end-rape-by-making-it-legal/) and hates Denmark because their strong social safety net makes it impossible for him to get laid using his gross PUA "game" (https://www.dissentmagazine.org/article/cockblocked-by-redistribution). He's the most disgusting type of misogynist, and it's great to see him become increasingly deplatformed and rendered more and more irrelevant.

Don't let the door hit your ass on the way out, asshole!
