Sorry, but I prefer for this blog to remain anonymous.
It’s been a while since I received this, so I’m not sure if you’re asking about some specific incident. In general, I find /cwc/ a fun way to keep up with Chris, and there’s decent commentary on the rare occasion that there’s anything new to comment on.
What makes the board amusing is its borderline paranoia about troll shielding—that is, the concept that any troll could actually be a lolcow pretending to be a badass troll to protect himself from being trolled. Ever since /cwc/ discovered A-Log, there’s been an increasing mentality that anybody who thinks too hard about Chris is as big a loser as Chris is. Given that /cwc/ is by definition a forum full of people who think too hard about Chris, this mentality is somewhat self-defeating.
I’m pretty sure many of the board’s users don’t grasp that irony, so /cwc/ is like a circular firing squad where half of them are shooting blanks but nobody knows which half. Depending on your point of view, it can be pretty entertaining.
I think you’ve summed up how we all see Sonichu, but Chris just doesn’t see it that way. To him, Sonichu is what makes him special, and the baggage that came with it is secondary to that. Assuming that he even makes the connection between Sonichu and his misfortunes, he would still never abandon the Sonichu concept altogether, because then he wouldn’t be special.
In this sense Chris fancies himself as a genius whose work is initially ridiculed before it is ultimately appreciated. The difference, though, is that a real genius is brilliant enough to see which ideas are worth the ridicule, while Chris endures ridicule because he thinks his idea will prove that he’s brilliant. That’s why he wouldn’t just come up with a new idea; he’d still need to justify the effort he invested into the first one.
For this reason, I’m astonished Chris has gone this long without a sustained effort to promote Sonichu and secure the wealth and fame that would vindicate him. But this Facebook post suggests that he has shifted his approach: Instead of assuring himself that Sonichu will succeed, he’s sitting around assigning blame to others for why he cannot do the work to make it succeed. Either way, the same basic self-delusion colors his opinion of his creation.
