I spent months writing this book because there was a lot that needed to be said after the year we’ve had constantly fighting to have our voices heard. I’m obviously biased, but even when I re-read it I can’t put it down, and hopefully you won’t be able to either. There’s a lot in there that I’ve never expressed publicly. Here’s a synopsis.

    Read it last weekend. Excellent! I was surprised to learn that Richard N. Vulva was not a TB creation. Plus I learned that I started reading the blog somewhat early, prior to Busgate. And I don’t remember now how I found it. LOL

    I got the E book late Monday night, I was up til almost 4 AM reading it. It is a good read, and worth the $$$, even if you don’t always agree with the content, the back stories are interesting. Drop the 10 bucks and buy the E version if you want to read it immediately.

    I’m more excited about reading this book than watching the next Jonah Hill movie.

    You should have a chapter about how you stopped writing the blogs yourself and started paying girls like SSTG and Bristol $85k a year to do all of the writing.

    TB, saw this in another post, but N1gger, A!den, and Ke@rney (spelled properly) are words that are censored from the comments section. Comments won’t even post. I thought you were anti-censorship? Care to explain?

      Because the comment section will just become a cesspool of people who hate Turtleboy posting shit like that to give him a bad name.

        Completely agree. So ban those people. Don’t ban words. One is censorship, one is not. And speaking personally, sometimes I like to vent on a post about a ratchet black person. Doesn’t make me any less of a Turtle Rider.

          As you’ll see if you read the book, there is a reason for this that has nothing to do with censorship. We do not have the ability to ban people. Anyone could just sign in under a new name, with our without using a VPN, and post away. It is probably pointless for us to auto block the n word, since you can just spell it wrong by a letter and it still comes up. But if the hill you want to die on is your ability to post the n word without being censored, I’d suggest that your priorities are out of wack.
