Steve's not just cruel, he's also dense...

Whilst being a nasty, condescending prick toward Rebecca K, Steveo Maxwell also displayed his true density further down the comments...

Thanksgiving was at our house.

I just figured out what it is about Steve that is so telling:

He never "smiles with his eyes." I'm not talking Tyra Banks stuff, here. I'm talking the fact that though the corners of his mouth are pulled up and out, and his teeth are bared, and his chin is held up a little higher -- there is no light in his eyes, no real crinkles around the corners of his eyes.

Can someone please explain to me what is strange or funny about this? Would it make more sense if I read the entire blog entry? Just not seein it.

All of his comments about Chris and NRAnna's baby in that entry seem kind of brusque. Weird. Why bother blogging if you're not interested in being friendly to your readers?

Yes, that's exactly it. I've always thought that even on smiling pictures, he still doesn't look like he is smiling.

I know that Terri was depressed when the kids were small, but I wonder if Steve has been/is depressed too.

I'm kind of new to the Maxwell-universe... has Steve always been so rude to readers? If not, I think his depression can explain that... if he is indeed depressed... if not, then he's just a genuine snob (what's sad is that I know another fundy who acts JUST like Steve is doing... which makes me sad in a way, because it's just a plain sad way to live.. imo. By acting snobby like that, you'll just turn people off and you'll really miss out on things).

Steve is... brusque. Always.

I'm not sure if he's depressed so much as just obsessed with death. Time's a wastin', and he has to run run run to keep up with his religious studies, he likely doesn't have time for you.

Steve also wants nothing to do with women who aren't Teri, because it's just way too easy to cheat. He can't have a normal business lunch with a woman in a conservative suit, even. Get angry (to himself, at least) when a guest to their house wore a shirt that was cut slightly roomy around the neck because goodness, shouldn't she have known she was tempting him? Get with the program, woman, sort of feel.

Most of the commenters to the Maxwell blog are women with children who admire the Maxwell lifestyle and want to emulate it at least in part, they use the Chore Packs and MOTH and make comments about that. Most of that stuff is actually created by Teri, but it's Steve who moderates the blog. So I suspect at least part of the brusqueness is just a sort of "oh, silly women" attitude coming through. But, that is just pure speculation on my part. (And if that's it, he really should just butt out and let Teri or one of the other women in the household answer the comments.) My speculation is also based on reading the Corners, though. Just check out the attitude in there, its like Teri has some little helpful hints for Moms but the real meat is MY corners, and by the way, these aren't for Moms to read. (Never mind snarky non-religious pants wearing women from three states away, but hey!)

As long as people are more or less sycophantic, they'll either be left alone or get little terse "just the facts ma'am" responses from Steve. But if someone seems to be criticizing, he can turn up the barbs. It's like, hey, look, we're showing you our holy lifestyle, just read it and be encouraged, already, and quit quibbling. Don't make moves like you're going to peek behind the curtain.

Interesting to me is that while Sarah writes most of the posts these days, it's ALWAYS Steve-O answering the comments. Even ones about the Moody books, these days it's all about "I'll let Sarah know you said that" sort of stuff.

As for this post, wow, his parents preferred to be by his sister. I am so not shocked to hear that... makes me wonder though if his sister has a blog, as always! :D

I donno... In the comments for the last posts (month or so) the ole Steve-O seems to be passively-agressively angry? feeling insulted? slighted? Maybe he feels that his holyness is unappreciated be the general populace, i.e. bad product sales, less than enthusiastic audiences in the past few conferences, snarky FJ :D

Something is deffo happening there ;)

Agreed. I think he's feeling unappreciated too.

Ah to be a fly on THAT wall.

HAHAHAHA. almost as good as Taryn!

Speaking of Taryn, did she leave this comment on the post about the Moody book party, or did one of you? I can no longer tell the difference between the crazy and the parody. Evil symbols on their packaging--is she referring the various symbols for kosher, by any chance?

It is always a wonderful thing when children read books, I always want to get books for my cousins.

I like to cook for people but so many companies put evil symbols on thier bag or containers that it is hard for me to locate a good company. My husband likes turkey and I do too.

May God bless your home with books and food.

Amen,

Taryn.

Where is our Taryn translator?

Taryn translator is here! But sadly, I do not think that is our dear Taryn.

Fess up, who was it? (And no, it wasn't me)

Of course it wasn't you, no one would insult your fine abilities of channeling Taryn. You would have done a far better job. :lol:

I agree that wasn't Taryn but who was it?

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      Long time no visit…
      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.
