He memorizes convincing technobabble. That's part of his act. It's no different than a con-man memorizing scripture to scam people.

He might know about how to pimp-out a livejournal page, but that's about it.




Weev was at one point at least somewhat technical, he reminds me a bit of Terry Davis, interesting and quirky at one point in the past but has descended into a sort of pitiful madness.

Terry Davis has real technical chops and has written more code for his 'temple' than most people will write in their entire lives. He is God's programmer after all.

Weev just talks a good game.


How are you qualified to make this claim? According to Andrew Anglin, he actually runs the infrastructure for The Daily Stormer[0] so he must have some level of technical competence.

I knew him for years.

I'd hope after years of Mr Robot larping he figured out how to install a CMS.


> I knew him for years.

Any proof?

You're one person making claims that run counter to everything published about the man.


Any proof of his technical genius?


I never claimed he was a genius. You, on the other hand, are making claims that he is a fraud. Proof would be nice.


Link me to a single line of code he wrote or project he worked on. He's a fraud.


God forbid someone doesn't have an open source project, they must be a fraud!
