Storify is a gift!

A few of the usual people this publication calls out have expressed their dismay over ElevatorGATE’s (@ElevatorGATE on Twitter) use of the Web-based app Storify:



What they’re somehow not realizing is that Storify merely echoes their own words back at them. The words which embarrass them are their own.

This publication, as its long-time readers know, has as it’s motto the Anglicized version of a line from Robert Burns’ poem To A Louse (On Seeing One On A Lady’s Bonnet, At Church):

O wad some Power the giftie gie us
To see oursels as ithers see us!
It wad frae mony a blunder free us,
An’ foolish notion:
What airs in dress an’ gait wad lea’e us,
An’ ev’n devotion!

Storify is a gift which ElevatorGATE gives his opponents. It lets them see what they look like to the rest of us. That enrages them because they don’t want to examine their own beliefs. Could it be that, deep down, they know their professed beliefs really don’t hold water?

Tweeters AmbrosiaX and uberfeminist put it very well. You can see their Tweets about it, appropriately enough, in this Storify page.
