EPIC BLOGGING WARS!!!

I'm watching the battle of the blogs going on.........

In one corner we have TheSword.com(Zach Sire)

In the other corner we have MOC blog(Victor Hoff)


The backdrop of the story is that both bloggers apparently are a having words with each other. Now for those of you who don't know about Blogging wars, they are very heated and sometimes it gets ugly. It seems each blogger has their stance on certain things and they both are using the power of their blogs to push an agenda(Right or Wrong not my concern)

This particular "Blog War" however is more deeper and complex than it appears on the surface(The Race issue, Press, Personal conflicts, Name calling bah bah)I'm a porn model that gets press from both. But I'm also a blogger myself, so I love a good "Blog Battle"

I sit at my computer laughing at the "Blog War" playing out in front of me because its....

A Blog War about the "Race Issue"(more Men of color, more coverage bah bah) in gay porn...

The Bloggers going at it are both White!!!

Bloggers are a mixed breed, we all sit in front of a computer and put together posts. Some bloggers think they are all "Deep" and "Insightful" some think they are "Rebels" going against the Establishment!! Some believe they are true Journalists and have to post according to "morals" "ethics". Some bloggers just put up "Trash" and call it a blog.

The intended use of a blog was to use this media for expression, stating your opinions wheter right or wrong that was its intended purpose. If you did not agree with the blog then you posted a comment to the contrary(comment section) or you simply did not read it.

Very Simple!!!


Unfortunately these bloggers have Affiliates, or have people that support them with money. So the freedom of expression for these bloggers are limited! Fear of losing money or a job keeps these bloggers at bay. They have some freedom!! But they can not go "Ape Shit" without facing negative feed back from somebody.

The most recent play by play and I call it like I see it....

TheSword hit MOC with your using content illegally.... MOC blog had to remove the footage for fear of being sued!!

Underlings for MOC had theSword remove images they deemed inappropriate, and the fear of losing sponsors made thesword replace those images with other ones.

I'm watching the battle an "Eye for an eye right now"!!Its nuts!! Other people probably have no clue what is going on. I'm a blogger and I'm sitting home with Popcorn keeping track of each update!!...

Now let me kill some rumors that "Wannabee" bloggers have about my relationship with both of these bloggers.

Zach Sire

I met Zach when he was working for Unzipped, we talked for a couple of minutes and he took some pics for the Unzipped blog. I met him again at the Cybersocket party, we talked for a few(more pics) and then I didn't see him again until the Grabbys where We again talked for a few mins and took more pics. I didn't see Zach again until the GayVns, we walked to two bars and had a drink and that is the end of it. We exchanged like five emails and talked on the phone, Hmmm?? maybe three times. I'm friendly with Zach Sire but We are not "Best" friends.

He's not my bitch nor is Diesel his bitch!! Alot of people don't get why Zach covers my blog as much as He does.

It's because I'm a Rebel blogger!! I'm not backed by a studio, site, affiliates.... So I write my blogs all the way from left field and I'm outspoken as hell and not afraid to express my opinion. My posts are entertaining sometimes crazy but always entertaining.

To the other bloggers out there, step up your game. Write interesting posts and he would cover you as well. You have to remember Bloggers are also human so they will write about their "favorites". Its their right!! They can write about anybody they want to...If you don't like it then don't read the blog.

Zach Sire is a natural rebel blogger himself but he writes for a Company blog now. So sorry to say Zach your hands are somewhat tied together.

Victor Hoff.

I met Victor once at the Cybersocket party, I had no clue who he was at first. He introduced himself to Me and I couldn't put two and two together at first. I didn't realize that he was the blogger behind MOC. We had alot of email exchanges in the past, He wanted to interview me for his blog. I went to his blog a couple of times and went through some of the stories posted there. There was one post with Wolf Hudson(friend of mine)so I contacted Wolf and asked him the scoop of his interview style. Will it be done through email, phone chat, skype? Then Wolf warned Me about his site, it seems that one of his contributing writers said same nasty things about Wolf in the comment section. So I was turned off about the idea because I had words with this same "contributing writer" why give an interview to this blog when one of the "Contributing writers" there was a Dick!!! I put off the idea of the interview for months.

Yet I was still getting emails from Victor Hoff constantly and he was leaving comments on my blog saying "We need to talk". At this point I just wanted no contact with him. Then he started posting stories about Me on his site, alot of double edged posts where he thinks he is talking over my head. I would respond in the comment section(stating my stance) and then his "contributing writer" would lash out in the comment section with bullshit!!. So trust with this blogger was gone!! Done!!

Then came the default black porn actor(he used this term in previous posts as well)so that is where the bad blood comes with Victor Hoff


I had words with Zach Sire at one point as well...

But unlike Victor I had the chance to see him in person, and we talked about the "Situation". When confronted he explained his side of the story and he listened to my side as well....

So if I had to pick sides in this "Battle of the Blogs"

I side with Zach...

The reason why:

Zach is just a better blogger, he tackles porn, social issues, talks to the models, looks for the stories and that is fucking hard! There is a style and wit to his writing, alot of people think some of his posts are alittle harsh with the wording. But as a blogger your allowed to do that, because you just don't want to write a boring story. You want a post to have some humor to it, sometimes his posts are alittle nippy at some of the stars. But come on Press is Press

And he spells your name right.

Victor's blog, the writing has gotten better, and he provides coverage for alot of Men of color models who would get no press without him(for that I give him props). But as of lately he resorted to putting up Xtube Vids, and alot of illegal downloads of bareback porn. Using those Vids to drive traffic to your site is kinda of cheesy. Sorry but I have to be real!! Using that ploy takes attention away from the intended purpose of the site.

Keeping people informed!!

And this is only my opinion:

I understand that you want to give Men of Color a voice on your blog(hence calling it MOC blog)and that is very important. At the same time I'm not sure about all the bareback content that you support. The African American community is being ripped apart by HIV.

And I haven't seen many posts dealing with the HIV issue or promoting safe sex. Just tons of bareback Vids from Xtube. And then all the promotion of Bareback DVD's, lets be real the numbers are rising in the African American community with the spreading of the HIV virus.

And Victor's underlings are upset about images of the KKK,

But your Underling is a bareback performer who fuels that stereotype that African amercians are nothing but "Black Savages" looking to fuck breed/load any white ass that is put in front of them!! That is just nasty and dirty and clearly not the message we need to send out to the Black community

So that is another reason why I pick Zach in this battle!!

I'm not clear on the stance of the MOC when it comes to barebacking and HIV.


I'm friendly with alot of the bloggers(non porn stars) covering the gay porn world,

Fleshbot
Brian O'Brian
bobby calamitous

Queermenow blogger

Some of the Queerclick bloggers

WayBig.com bloggers

Sue from fairviewsue.wordpress.com

Jack from Gaypornblog

Tam from Guiltily Pleasured

JackManly

So I'm familiar with alot of the bloggers in the gay porn community, its a job that "True" bloggers take serious.

Some people think its just a space to write gossip or rant and rave. To others its their home and their space in the internet world.

One of the biggest rules in the Blogging world:

Never delete a post because of negative feedback, once you do that you have lost the Integrity of the blog. Blogs are freedom of expression, and once you back down and remove a post you have lost that freedom that true writers have. And that is something that you don't want to do.


There are more rules to this game but lets stop there....

More later.



Anyway I just wanted to state where I stand in this battle!!

Hey Diesel thanks for the shout out! I met Victor at the Raging Stallion Man of the Year party and he mentioned that he wanted to interview me. But now that I see that he has bareback porn on MOC, I don't think I'm gonna do that interview. We're all about safe sex over at Fair View!

Great post Diesel. I particularly liked the part about not cutting comments. I had a few run-ins with some industry bloggers this past few months and as the professional commentator that I seem to become, they kinda turned me off.

As for the War time...we are now moving into the big leagues.
I though for sure that 2010 will go down in history as the Age of Gay Porn Twitter Wars. Those actually turned me on to twitter and kept me entertained for a good while this year.
But compared to this, they are just neighborhood boy wars with slings.

Diesel,

I'm so glad that you wrote that post. I too have been watching the war (more a blog “tet a tet”) simmer and have arrived at the same conclusions as you. And, yes, I am black man.

Sire has been spot on with his responses to Victor Hoff, but I knew eventually the images (KKK and others) would have to come down. Not because they were wrong, but because some readers would misunderstand the context. The images are down...so what.

Here's the rub. You are exactly right. Victor Hoof and his two minions trying lead a discussion about racism in gay porn can never work. Races, racism, racial relations, racism in porn are all worthy discussions, but can people with questionable character contribute to this discussion?

Victor Hoff, plain and simple, is a thief. MOC Blog, would not exist if it were not for the dozens and dozens of pirated videos that litter his blog. Video piracy is the one of the biggest problems in porn. From the beginning, Victor Hoff has received a pass on his thievery until someone recently made a comment about it on The Sword. One of Hoff’s minions made a blind a remark about it, but lacked the balls to directly call Victor out on it.

Also, if Victor and MOC Blog are so concerned about racism and gay culture, why is he not concerned about HIV in the gay community. It's the height of hypocrisy to be concerned about racism and then promote bareback sex. There is no question that HIV in ethnic communities is still considered an epidemic. Victor is concerned about the imagery of white men in hoods and a kid yelling "That's racist", yet on his blog, on November 12th, he promotes two bareback performers? He then goes so far to suggest that these performers do a scene for porn studio Tim Tales. That is the ultimate slap in the face to Tim Tales. Victor Hoff and MOC Blog posts pirated videos from a specific tube site on a regular basis. This same tube site has many Tim Tales videos illegally posted to their site.
Chase Coxxx - Absolutely cannot lead a discussion about any social issue, especially racism, while being the black poster boy for bareback sex. As a gay porn bareback performer, Chase Coxxx, in my opinion, is completely irrelevant.

Michael said...

Contnued...Part 3 of 3
Tre Xavier – A sanctimonious gadfly who is totally devoid of self-objectivity. An extremist who yells "That's Racist" at every turn. Victor Hoff and the MOC Blog have given Xavier a voice and an outlet to promote irrational charges of racism. Xavier holds the following beliefs:
-Regarding HIV rates among people of color, Xavier states, “For I rarely believe statistics. Practically all statistics are made by oppressors of some sort pushing their agenda. And in HIV statistic, that agenda would be to make White seem more disease-free than people of color. Think about it, not only with HIV, but isn’t it funny how the statistics for MOST illnesses claim Blacks (and other people of color) to be the most affected. For this reason, I don’t believe men of color have the highest rate of infection.
I will give room for error in my feeling towards statistics in this case. For if minorities have the highest rate of infection, then it’s PROBABLY because these Black and Latino men are minorities being infected by the “tanned, waxed, sometimes roided up” White HIV positive majority. I say this because of the HIV positive men I’ve come to know, the overwhelming majority are actually White, and the men of color DID NOT get infected by someone of their own ethnicity.
-Regarding the November 2nd elections, Xavier stated, “I'm really getting tired of people saying I HAVE TO vote. All I HAVE TO do is be true to myself.
Yes, there were ancestors who fought for me to have the right to vote. What many are forgetting is that the word "right" = CHOICE. And with that choice, I am not shackled to settle for less if I don't like ANY of the choices that I have been given. And out of respect for myself, I am not taking time out of my day to go to polls, and settle for less. If you want to do that, that is YOUR RIGHT, YOUR CHOICE. So out of me respecting your right and your choice, do the same to me in return by not attempting to shove the idea of voting down my throat, and LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE!!!! “
Later in the day, Xavier contradicts himself and says:
“@LogoTV I live so far from my voting district, I put my faith in my fellow NYers and didn't vote. It worked. U.S. overall however...#LETDOWN”
The truth is Tre Xavier has absolutely no credibility. Xavier retired from porn after failing as a porn performer, he was fired from his mail room for excessive tardiness (irresponsible) does not understand the rules of debate, lacks the intellectual capacity to comprehend such basics as logic, statistics and basic grammar.
So what do we have? A bareback porn performer, a video pirate that also promotes bareback sex and an arrogant, self-important, idiot. Bless their hearts.

Good luck getting people behind this one. Though you make some VERY fascinating points, youre going to have to do more than bring up a few things that may be different than what weve already heard. What are trying to say here? What do you want us to think? It seems like you cant really get behind a unique thought. Anyway, thats just my opinion.
