I made an archive not too long ago of Solomon’s site. I’ve been keeping this quiet while I tried to contact him and while I decided what I wanted to do with it. I haven’t heard from him and based on the way his site went out I’m guessing I won’t.
I’ve decided that I’ll go through the archive and repost anything which doesn’t seem overly personal. Some things I know upfront I won’t post, like any pictures, audio, etc with “real” people. Since I don’t know the stories behind those files, I won’t post them without the owner’s permission. However, I don’t see any problem in posting some of the stock/photoshop type images he created, like the pictures in Elevator Speech and Drive Thru Boyfriend.
I think the best way to do this will be for me to create a separate blog to post this on. I’ll share the address to the site once I have it up, and I’ll link to it on my blogroll where the link is now to his old site. It probably will take me a while to work my way through all of it, so please bear with me. Also, for anyone else who might have saved copies or know a way to retrieve them, please take the concerns I mentioned above into consideration. Part of my goal in publishing the core text of his writings is to ensure the manosphere doesn’t lose his brilliance while avoiding compounding whatever the situation was which prompted him to pull the blog in the first place.
Update: I have the site up, along with his first post: Solomon II’s Lost Gold
October 23rd 2012 Update: When I created the new home for Solomon II’s content following the unexpected disappearance of his blog I didn’t consider the long term. I was able to contact Solomon recently and asked him what he would like me to do; we agreed that I should shut the site down. Solomon has the archives of his original blog and will decide what he wants to do with it from here.
