Book Description

Never lose an argument on the internet again!

At last! This essential guide to the theory and practice of Blogmanship teaches you how to win arguments on blogs, message boards and forums even (or especially) if you haven't the faintest ideas what you are talking about.

Whether the topic is Religion vs Atheism, capital punishment, gun ownership, drug legalisation, the battle of the sexes or even more complex matters, this handbook tells you how to beat all comers.

Learn how to:

• Baffle and patronise your opponents into submission
• Wriggle out of arguments you have clearly lost
• Annoy Americans (and conversely, if you are American – annoy Britons)
• Go ‘one-up’ on people who actually agree with you

This book does for bloggers what Sun Tzu’s Art of War does for regional marketing managers and telesales executives!

"Brilliant! Noseybonk does for comment thread winners what Godwin did for losers…Building on one of those blinding flashes of insight that have periodically illuminated the long march of western civilization, Noseybonk argues convincingly that the least important subject of a blog comment thread is the veracity of the the original post."
David Cohen

"Brilliantly well-observed. With so many highlights it seems unfair to pick something out for especial praise, but the Christopher Hitchens and Nick Cohen book titles were very amusing and eerily credible."
Frank Key - Hooting Yard

"A work of genius born of vast blogging experience and an almost Athenian grasp of the ancient art of rhetoric."
Peter Burnet

"I thought of it first"
Jonathan Law (Advanced Blogman)

‘Noseybonk’ – anonymous internet guru – is a veteran of numerous well-known blogs and writes a regular satirical column on The Dabbler (

This edition of the Blogmanship handbook includes exclusive illustrations by blogging legend The Spine.

5.0 out of 5 stars True, witty and funny 16 May 2011
By Gareth
Anyone who's ever ventured into the blogiverse will immediately recognise the truth of Noseybonk's meditations and the effectiveness of his techniques. They will also find his 'Blogmanship' not just extremely witty but also LOL funny.

I read this book then re-read it and was even tempted to re-re-read it. Without a shadow of a doubt I have never come across a piece of work on Blogmanship which Is so useful and humorous. I definitely can recommend it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh-out-loud Funny 11 May 2011
By David Cohen - Published on
Don't let the fact that this is a very funny pamphlet distract you from the fact that, under the laughter, the author is making a serious point about the nature of argument on the Internet. In Internet arguments, neither facts nor logic carry the day; the average commenter's only aim is oneupmanship.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Frontier for Sociology 26 May 2011
By Jeffrey Guinn - Published on
Sociology has long been stuck in the deathless troika of class, race, and gender. Blogmanship, to which the appellation 'seminal' surely applies, shows the way forward for sociology to gain in the 21st century the relevance it claimed for itself in the 20th. After all, as this sharply observed study clearly demonstrates, on the internet the color of your gender, or its bank balance, are completely irrelevant. All that matters is the correct and timely application of the principals of blogmanship in order to leave your opponents watering their keyboards with tears of humiliation.

In assembling this academic masterwork, Noseybonk -- considering the subject, an actual name would have been as jarring as a Lamborghini at a Green Peace meeting -- has cited the leading experts in the field, as well as adding his own sharply observed insights.

The result is a definitive delineation of blogmanship principles which, absent being extremely well written, will surely be seen as Clausewitzean in stature.

A extraordinarily funny parody that is simultaneously a brilliant exposé on the true nature of online argument. Very highly recommended.
