IanB is not wellOctober 1, 2015 Tim WorstallThe Blogger Himself21 CommentsNot well at all. He’s had to go and get an actual job. Very sad indeed…… previousThe game theory of democracynextWhy doesn’t this surprise? 21 thoughts on “IanB is not well” JuliaM October 1, 2015 at 7:34 am Well, considering our worst fears… 😉 K.R. Lohse October 1, 2015 at 7:39 am I*m certain that IanB will feel better soon and return to his usual ways. Wishing you a speedy recovery, IanB Ian B October 1, 2015 at 8:57 am That’ll be Tim “publishing personal information on the internet” Worstall then. So anyway, like a good Libertarian I am deploying my skills where there is demand in the economy. Kind of thing. Mr Ecks October 1, 2015 at 9:40 am So honest work has left you too ashamed to comment anywhere ? Squander Two October 1, 2015 at 9:54 am I think he published it knowing that some people here would actually care. In a nice way. Get well soon from whatever it is. DBC Reed October 1, 2015 at 10:16 am Leave the guy alone: a rare exception to the kind of right-wing pseudo intellectual who dominates this and most other blogs . (How to be a Right wing pseudo intellectual : inscribe “Market forces will provide” on the back of you hand and consult at all times) So Much For Subtlety October 1, 2015 at 10:29 am Ian B – “So anyway, like a good Libertarian I am deploying my skills where there is demand in the economy. Kind of thing.” F&&k. He has become an advisor to the Corbyn campaign! DBC Reed – “(How to be a Right wing pseudo intellectual : inscribe “Market forces will provide” on the back of you hand and consult at all times)” So I guess that makes me a genuine intellectual. As the back of my hand says “Market forces will provide if you are a male Protestant of northern European extraction”. Bloke in Germany October 1, 2015 at 10:31 am Are there any blogs IanB doesn’t comment on prolifically? Ian Reid October 1, 2015 at 11:17 am The good news is that he will be exposed to third wave feminism in the wild, and can report back on what he sees. Plus of course his cat will get to spend more time on his own, and do as he pleases. Mr Ecks October 1, 2015 at 11:35 am DBC Reed: Wasn’t attacking the man. Good to know he hasn’t died. The last bloke who dropped of the radar like that –Neil Craig–did so because he had. I have always found Ian’s comments well worth reading and hopefully there will be more on the way. Leftists don’t write slogans on the backs of their hands DBC –mainly because they are playing themselves in a furious bout of pocket billiards 24/7. Justin October 1, 2015 at 12:13 pm There’s no room on the back of my hand for pithy intellectual quotes, pseudo or otherwise, as most of it is consumed with a shopping list. Pretty stupid really, especially considering they’ll be closed this afternoon. Richard Allan October 1, 2015 at 12:33 pm Because god knows DBC Reed isn’t enamoured of silver bullet solutions. Except for, you know, retail price maintenance. Richard Allan October 1, 2015 at 12:33 pm Dammit, brain, I meant to say *resale* price maintenance. diogenes October 1, 2015 at 4:35 pm Richard, you forgot Land Value Tax…with that and RPM all the woes of the world are solved, as far as DBCR is capable of perceiving the world. ukliberty October 1, 2015 at 6:50 pm Indeed, DBCR is only half right; LVT and basic income are the silver bullet. John Galt October 1, 2015 at 7:01 pm Are there any blogs IanB doesn’t comment on prolifically? Yes, Counting Cats in Zanzibar, but that’s by mutual consent with NickM of that parish after a bit of falling out over Mon Bears. Shame as I miss IanB, who has a very different world view. Must be all of that erotica or whatever the technical term is nowa days. GlenDorran October 1, 2015 at 8:04 pm Mon Bears? Ian B October 1, 2015 at 8:16 pm Moon Bears. It’s a long and rather silly story. I’ve really just been absorbed by offline stuff and lost track of things online. To be honest I hadn’t even realised I hadn’t been visible in my usual bloggy places for a while. As soon as I feel the need to be unjustly accused of things repellent by Ironman again, I’ll be right back. Ian B October 1, 2015 at 8:19 pm And thank you, it’s very nice to be worried about. I have a genuinely warm and fuzzy feeling inside now. johnny bonk October 1, 2015 at 9:03 pm @Ian – we heard you might be dead, glad to know you’re not. Thornavis October 2, 2015 at 8:14 pm Moon Bears. It’s a long and rather silly story. It is and to my shame I was one of the offenders. Late to this one but good to hear Ian is OK.
