Tucker Moldbug Interview, Briefly

Moldbug used to be fond of saying true things I did not know. When he said wrong things they were at least easy mistakes to make; practically a reasonable interpretation. Plus stuff like this: "What makes the provincial [Pontic] critic so grimly, hilariously terrible is that he imagines himself not just equal to the wits of the metropolis, but vastly superior."

Moldbug now never says anything I don't know, and includes a generous helping of implications which are flagrantly false. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

By far Moldbug's best comparative advantage is picking up bureaucratic drivel and reading between the lines to extract the exact message. Absolutely mindblowingly competent at this task. Naturally, he did it exactly once and barring unforseeable events, will never do it again.

Can he be considered moldbug any more?

I see your point, yes.

Given how names work, Moldbug has always referred to a person who would evolve into this.
