Intellectual Dark Web sites & the second string

Bari Weiss mentioned twenty-five people in her Intellectual Dark Web column, but there are plenty more, as even whoever is running this "inofficial" Intellectual Dark Web archive agrees. Although this extended circle lists people mentioned in the Weiss article. I will just include those who are not in the Weiss article, whom I like to call the second-stringers. Several of these names are new to me.

The archive includes Ezra Klein as a member which is absurd so I left him out.
  • John Anderson
  • Bishop Robert Barron 
  • Peter Boghossian 
  • Yaron Brook 
  • Steven Crowder 
  • James Damore
  • Richard Dawkins 
  • Larry Elder 
  • David Fuller 
  • Jonathan Haidt 
  • Lewis Howes 
  • Coleman Hughes 
  • Gregg Hurwitz 
  • Lawrence Lessig 
  • James Lindsay 
  • Bjorn Lomborg
  • Glenn Loury 
  • Greg Lukianoff 
  • Helen Pluckrose 
  • Gad Saad 
  • Sir Roger Scruton 
  • John Stossel 
  • Skyler Turden 
  • Jocko Willinck 
  • Akira the Don 
I would add to the list:
  • Jerry Coyne
  • David Duke
  • Niall Ferguson
  • Linda Gottfredson
  • Iona Italia
  • Jonathan Kay
  • Razib Khan
  • Ezra Levant
  • Richard Lynn
  • Gavin McInnes
  • John McWorther
  • Daphne Merkin
  • Andy Ngo
  • Steve Sailer
  • Jesse Singal
  • Richard Spencer
  • Jared Taylor
  • Bo Winegard
  • Cathy Young
  • Toby Young
Really you could add anybody who writes for Quillette to the list.

Here is another Intellectual Dark Web site with a logo and all. It lists the leaders of the IDW which includes mostly those mentioned in the Weiss article but also some of the second stringers and one mentioned nowhere else - John McWhorter - so I added him to my list.

And I found another IDW site.
