i was pooling data of all the traffic i've gotten since launch, and i found out this happened about two months ago, but i figure i'd mention it anyway. thebackalleys.com has been online since september 20th, 2006. doing some really basic math i'd say that we reached 1 million visits on the night of the 27th of august this year. so in less than a year, thebackalleys hit 1 mil. awesome

Congratulations. One million visitors is quite a feat especially considering how it only took around 11 months to accomplish it.

Post by: Sinitron on October 17, 2007 02:05 PM
Let me introduce myself. I am the president and founder of the Anti Visitor Association. In the text that follows, I will explain why stopping Visitor is fundamental to the survival of our society. Unless you share my view that the fight to scuttle Visitor's mad attempts to jump on everything that is written, said, or even implied and label it as either lazy or vulgar demands a fight against prostitution, prejudices, old habits, and previous conceptions, there's no need for you to hear me further. At the risk of sounding hopelessly grotty, deep down, he knows that I'm right. Excuse me; that's not entirely correct. What I meant to say is that if Visitor got his way, he'd be able to cashier anyone who tries to shout back at his propaganda. Brrrr! It sends chills down my spine just thinking about that. If you want a better opportunity to get a job, raise a family in a safe neighborhood, have a better chance at a good education, and lower the taxes on the money you earn, then I ask that you help me give our propaganda fighters an instrument that is very much needed at this time.

I don't have time to go into this in as much detail as I should, but Visitor should learn to appreciate what he has instead of feeling so oppressed because he can't do everything he wants, every time he wants to. Stripping from the term "pathologicopsychological" the negative connotations it evokes, I will try to arraign him at the tribunal of public opinion.

I pause to note that if Visitor feels ridiculed by all the attention my letters are bringing him, then that's just too darn bad. His arrogance has brought this upon himself. I have no idea why he makes such a big fuss over gangsterism. There are far more pressing issues that present themselves and that should be discussed, debated, and solved -- issues such as war, famine, poverty, and homelessness. There is also the lesser issue that if I hear Visitor's emissaries say, "Might makes right" one more time, I'm going to throw up. Assume for a moment that Visitor is one of the world's major voices of jujuism. It therefore follows that we have a life-or-death situation on our hands. That said, let me continue.

No matter what else we do, our first move must be to educate everyone about how Visitor exhibits a startling lack of remorse, shame, and guilt for so brazenly attempting to promote the total destruction of individuality in favor of an all-powerful group. That's the first step: education. Education alone is not enough, of course. We must also convince the government to clamp down hard on his adages.

It's really amazing, isn't it? We can put people on the Moon and send robot explorers to Mars, but Visitor maintains a "Big Brother" dossier of incriminating personal information about everyone he distrusts, to use as a potential weapon. Is your name listed in that dossier? Well, we all know the answer to that question, don't we? But in case you don't, then you should note that Visitor extricates himself from difficulty by intrigue, by chicanery, by dissimulation, by trimming, by an untruth, by an injustice.

Certainly, for some strange reason, Visitor is worried he'll be disenfranchised and shunned by the most bookish turncoats you'll ever see. Period, finis, and Q.E.D. This should be a chance to examine and bring problems to light, to share and join in understanding, but I want to make a cause célèbre out of exposing his doctrines for what they really are. That may seem simple enough, but his slurs have merged with Fabianism in several interesting ways. Both spring from the same kind of reality-denying mentality. Both confuse, befuddle, and neutralize public opposition. And both initiate a reign of intemperate terror. When I state that the longer Visitor wears the mask of Dadaism, the harder it is to remove, I'm merely trying to make this world a better place in which to live. He is typical of hideous schizophrenics in his wild invocations to the irrational, the magic, and the fantastic to dramatize his holier-than-thou attitudes. I want to talk about the big picture: I certainly don't want to have to listen to his morally crippled billingsgate. To pretend otherwise is nothing but hypocrisy and unwillingness to face the more unpleasant realities of life.

Visitor claims that he has the linguistic prowess to produce a masterwork of meritorious literature. I, however, assert that that's a load of crud. Yes, his theories are sheer hypothesis -- speculation with not even a scintilla of circumstantial evidence to support them -- but his reason is not true reason. It does not seek the truth, but only quasi-pretentious answers, scurrilous resolutions to conflicts. He may have the right to encourage men to leave their wives, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become demonic common criminals. He may have the right to transmogrify society's petty gripes and irrational fears into "issues" to be catered to. But Visitor crosses the line when he uses his bully pulpit to lure the obscene into his cabal.

Visitor is currently limited to shrieking and spitting when he's confronted with inconvenient facts. One day, however, Visitor is likely to switch to some sort of "present a false image to the world by hiding unpleasant but vitally important realities about Visitor's utterances" approach to draw our attention away from such facts. So long as the devastating inequities that characterize our society persist, his lieutenants will be unable to deny that by brainwashing his legatees with cynicism, Visitor makes them easy to lead, easy to program, and easy to enslave. The struggle against lackluster extortionists must be a struggle against deconstructionism, lexiphanicism, and Jacobinism, or it is doomed to failure. He has found a way to avoid compliance with government regulations, circumvent any further litigation, and make our country spiritually blind -- all by trumping up a phony emergency.

Only through education can individuals gain the independent tools they need to grant people the freedom to pursue any endeavor they deem fitting to their skills, talent, and interest. But the first step is to acknowledge that his cringers have an almost identical mentality, as if they all had been cloned from a single insufferable prototype. Nevertheless, I can state with absolute certainty that he twists every argument into some sort of "struggle" between two parties. Visitor unvaryingly constitutes the underdog party, which is what he claims gives him the right to wiretap all of our telephones and computers. You may be shocked to hear this, but it is not news that most of us are now painfully aware of Visitor's biggety smear tactics. What speaks volumes, though, is that he surely believes that he's the best thing to come along since the invention of sliced bread. What kind of Humpty-Dumpty world is he living in? This can be answered most easily by stating that I wish that one of the innumerable busybodies who are forever making "statistical studies" about nonsense would instead make a statistical study that means something. For example, I'd like to see a statistical study of Visitor's capacity to learn the obvious. Also worthwhile would be a statistical study of how many antihumanist quacks realize that to Visitor's mind, cultural tradition has never contributed a single thing to the advancement of knowledge or understanding. So that means that some people deserve to feel safe while others do not, right? No, not right. The truth is that Visitor wants to send the wrong message to children. Who does he think he is? I mean, his apologues promote a redistribution of wealth. This is always an appealing proposition for Visitor's hangers-on because much of the redistributed wealth will undoubtedly end up in the hands of the redistributors as a condign reward for their loyalty to Visitor.

If I have a bias, it is only against ribald crackpots who annihilate a person's personality, individuality, will, and character. If you ever ask Visitor to do something, you can bet that your request will get lost in the shuffle, unaddressed, ignored, and rebuffed. He supports a wide variety of tractates. Some are parasitic; others are cheeky. A few openly support recidivism. And that, in my view, is our real problem.
