In Search of the elusive Quixote

This blog is in distress. The primary source of material has been missing in action for over a week. In a desperate attempt to find evidence of the continued existence of the elusive Quixote of Ludwig, a call was sent out over the hailing channel of the internet:

The results aren’t very encouraging. Most replies were references to Diary of Daedalus and Blogmocracy, with a significant number of echoes of Ludicrousness at Littlegreenfootballs 1.0. However, there were a few faint pings from outside of this triad, though most of them lead back to the triad.

Here’s one.

And then there’s this, about cold fusion and flatulence.

All roads lead back to the fossil fuels industry, don’t they, Lood?

He even got a mention at the diabolical denier blog, WattsUpWithThat.

Here’s his Digg page; no sign of recent activity here.

And a mention at Pajamas Media.

And then there’s this.

So tell me Lood, just how ejumicated is Chuck? I never heard him claiming any great scholarly achievements.

But perhaps the strangest is this. WARNING: THIS LINK MAY CONTAIN MALWARE!

WTF, Lood? That’s some sick shiite.

    What will we do without LewdSpank van Queer? He is the source of much of our amusement. He needs to mush his way through the Ice and Snow and make a rant on Global Warming® now! His timing could not be better. Britain is supposed to get another ten inches of solid proof of Global Warming® tonight…

    I came across an old gem, one I’m sure we chortled over in the past: http://littlegreenfootballs.com/page/227559_A_fabulous_discussion_with_ano

    It’s simply fabulous! The pomposity is priceless, as is the blithe melding of scientific consensus with religious dogma, as only the Lewd-Thing can swing it.

    A fabulous discussion with another Lizard on science and religion
    LudwigVanQuixote
    General • Oct 18, 2010 at 9:41 am PDT • Clicks: 100 • Views: 462

    Excerpt:

    With science at least, all of those conflicting voices who represent the best and the worst of us in the field of religion, are always secondary to the hard data. If you believe that God made the universe according to His will, then you must believe that all natural phenomena are according to His will. As a result, the final arbiter in science, is God Himself. Paradoxically, with religion, the final arbiter of what people think God said, is always men.

  3. snowcrash says:

    I hope he is on his honeymoon or vacationing somewhere without internet access. Maybe we can run the occasional “Best of Ludwig 2010” post until we get new stuff to work with.

  4. nil stooge says:

    Very surprised LewdWig hasn’t come crawling back by now. For sure no one’s going to buy Johnson doing proof by assertion and argument from authority defenses of AGW. It takes a real bombastic physicist/polymath for that shtick.

    • snowcrash says:

      I bet Johnson has asked people to contact Ludwig behind the scenes, to come back.
      Hopefully Johnson will rethink his degrading time out policy and the amount of power he wants iceweasel to have as a monitor.

      • nil stooge says:

        I gotta figure something like that is going on behind the scenes, working at finding some face-saving way for LewdWig to reappear.

        And, that that’s the reason for the farcically long “time-out” to still be in effect – at this point it’s saving face for both Johnson and LewdWig, serving as the putative reason LvQ hasn’t returned

  5. poteen says:

    I wonder if he’s trapped in his hybrid, in a snowdrift, cold, lonely and screaming “Damn you AGW!” Oh the horror!.///

  7. snowcrash says:

    The urban dictionary definition of iceweasel hasn’t experienced a massive downdinging from lizards protecting their own. I wonder why? LOL

  8. garycooper says:

    I just noticed the “strictly-observant Jew” spells out the name of G-d in the excerpt I posted. Hmm…that’s odd. An inconsistency in his story?

    I would LOVE to hear him pontificate on the trapped/stored heat bubbling up to the surface from beneath the Antarctic ice. Oh, the penguin-humanity! It’s just the kind of nutty pseudo-science into which Lewdy could really sink his fangs. At the same time, it’s semi-contradictory to his overarching-theme of Greenhouse Hell, where billions will die thrashing in the boiling surf.

    FREE LUDWIG NOW! LGF TIMEOUTS ARE RACIST IMPERIALIST GITMOS!

  9. I personally believe that the Ludiot has gone the route of other internet leftist frauds. He has changed his nic. He is now posting under a different name, perhaps a sock who always agreed with himself. Look for Ludiot type of postings under a relatively new nic. You can be anything you want online, including a Jewish scientist with a raging coke problem.

    • My Little Ponytail says:

      Anybody seen Reggy lately?

    • grandjunctionite says:

      Possible. There don’t seem to be any new posters over there though. In fact, they are down below 20 regulars making the miniscule 150 comments on the overnight open. It’s getting really boring over there. We need Ludwig back to liven things up. I don’t see him as any of the other few still there.

    • garycooper says:

      I don’t go to LGF myself, as I can’t stand the loading-times and this forum does a great job of scanning the swamp for new crazy-meat. I would think Lewd-Thing’s style would be easy to pick up on, if he was posting under another name. He’s very idiosyncratic in his beliefs, along with his condescending style of preaching to the less-gifted lizards. If he’s there, he’ll be found, because he won’t be able to keep his forehead-cuckoo-door closed for very long.

  10. a-nona-mouse says:

    Again, I think he went all medieval on Charles and company via emails when he was given the time out. He has been told (by describing what 0000G did) that all he has to do is apologize. However——LudwigVanQuixote does not know what it is that he did wrong, and therefore cannot apologize.

    He is in an infinite loop. He is toast.

    • garycooper says:

      He is in an infinite loop. He is toast.

      I think that’s very possible. He showed no hint of a reverse-gear in his slap-fight with Iceweasel, and I don’t recall him ever backing up on anything in the past. He very well could have approached the cliff with Fatass via email, been told he needed to apologize and make amends to Ice, and then just decided to go all “Thelma and Miss S.” right into the abyss. The movie might well be over. 😦

    Ummm…that last link there is very bad. I mean, don’t click on it (made my puter go nuts).

        Anyone want to paste it up?

      • My Little Ponytail says:

        Or if you prefer, get an Ubuntu bootable CD, and go for it.

  13. nil stooge says:

    Kinda disappointing he’s willing to throw in the towel over a matter of pride and go ahead and stop his struggle to prevent billions and billions from dying (probably nearly half of whom, by his own strict measure, don’t actually deserve death for their misdeeds). Someday, when water is lapping at the top of the Empire State Building, and holdouts in the Himalayas are writing the sad history of AGW, this last week – when Charles Johnson effectively banned LudwigVanQuixote from LGF – will be seen as the tipping point in the lost stuggle to save Gaia. Before it’s too late think of the children CJ & LvQ!!

    • garycooper says:

      The children of the wingnuts and deniers, too? Or just the children of the unicorn-riding messiah?

  14. nil stooge says:

    My Little Ponytail :
    Anybody seen Reggy lately?

    He never is around much it seems, but no less than usual. They – LvQ and RP – do have the same personality type IMO, so if RP starts preaching about AGW that’d be a tell, though since they’ve both posted here (LvQ as 5arah10v3r) the respective IPs would be all you’d need.

  15. garycooper says:

    The “snuff fantasy” business I remembered, from a stupid post Lewd-Spanks did at LGF. It’s here: http://littlegreenfootballs.com/page/222183_Political_Pornography-_A_fanta

    Despite claims to the contrary, I have indeed addressed the issue of the Russian anti-Semite who worked for Wikileaks, and did so at The League of Ordinary Gentlemen; I will continue to address it and if necessary criticize Wikileaks for allowing such a thing to happen just as I have been criticizing Wikileaks when warranted since April of this year. I will not be posting further at LGF due to the fact that Kilgore Trout yesterday accused me of engaging in criminal activity and being potentially funded by the Russian mafia or Chinese state, and due to the fact that such libelous and frankly bizarre allegations are apparently considered to be acceptable at this site. Additionally, I never said that I receive “financial” assistance from any parties. I receive non-financial assistance from like-minded parties and none of this assistance is secret; most of it is detailed either in passing or in fuller extent on the web. I will not name them here because I will not supply Kilgore with further targets to libel. I will continue to address these issues at The League and other venues.

      The one in which I linked to a newspaper that you yourself have written for as evidence as well as a discussion between Bush and Blair about killing more of them? Thanks, Charles.

      Again, thanks to those who have engaged me in honest discussion over the issue, and I’m sorry to be leaving, but I’m involved with too many efforts to allow myself to be portrayed in the manner in which some here have decided is appropriate.

      A thought. By opting to leave instead of engaging and counteracting any misinformation, you’re effectively ceding the ground and argument to them. I know you’ve got your own blog n stuff, but it still strikes me as a negative thing to walk away instead continuing to fight and battle.
      Charles has done a really good job of keeping LGF from becoming an echo chamber, and I personally do not want to see your voice go away from here.

      One other thing I probably should tell you because if we don’t they’ll probably be saying this about me too, we did get something—a gift—after the election. A man from Hungary heard Jimmah mention the fact that our blog would like to have a weasel. And, believe it or not, the day before we left on this campaign trip we got a message from Union Station in Long Beach saying they had a package for us. We went down to get it. You know what it was? It was a ice weasel in a crate that he’d sent all the way from Hungary. Black and white spotted. And our little Jimmah named it Weazy. And you know, the kids, like all kids, love the weasel and I just want to say this right now, that regardless of what they say about it, we’re gonna keep it.
      […]
      And as far as this is concerned, I intend to continue the fight. Why do I feel so deeply? Why do I feel that in spite of the smears, the misunderstandings, the necessity for a man to come up here and bare his soul as I have? Why is it necessary for me to continue this fight? And I want to tell you why. Because, you see, I love my blog. And I think my blog is in danger. And I think that the only man that can save LFG at this time is the man that’s running LFG—Charles Johnson. You say, “Why do I think it’s in danger?” and I say look at the record. Seven years of the Right Wing Administration and what’s happened? Billons of people will be lost to climate chaos, and wars in Iraq and Afghanistan in which we have lost millions American casualties.
