The 'Dark Enlightenment' cluster-linkage analysis
I feel that I ought to note the passing of the blog aggregator site neorxn.com, which was the all-time top referrer to this blog - accounting for 130,000 page views over the years.
The site was called Reaction Times, and had the insightful subtitle "The restoration will not be televised".
It was one of a group of a briefly-trendy neoreaction/ alt-right/ 'dark enlightenment'/ manosphere-type blogs from about a decade ago (I don't remember exactly when it began).
It did not include many Christian bloggers, but I was one of the handful. It is possible that some of the current regular readers originally found this blog via the neorxn link.
Anyway - since February 15 the site has been inactive and down - with the message "Service Unavailable - Server currently undergoing maintenance". I sent an email to the administrator, who used to run a blog called Free Northerner - but got no reply. So I guess it is all dead.
Did it fall or was it pushed? I don't know. Certainly, few of the original blogs that it originally aggregated, remain active - and that whole 'secular right' movement (often associated with Mencius Moldbug) has all-but fizzled-out; either from despair, convergence or (at best!) religious conversion (as was inevitable, and necessary).
Anyway, I thought that someone should note the passing of a once-vigorous web presence. For all its faults as a not-specifically-Christian aggregator; nothing better than neorxn has replaced it - so this probably counts as another loss.
