In Search of the elusive Quixote, Part II

The last thread on Ludwig was almost like a wake. Most have given up all hope. Some wanted to leave messages on his inactive Digg page, but one suggested leaving messages on Miss S’s Digg page. Well, it doesn’t appear that any messages were left for Ludwig, but with 50 comments I thought the thread on hexavalent chromium was interesting, partially because it’s precisely the kind of Gaiasade that Ludwig would love the lead the charge with, but also because the comments weren’t exactly friendly.

I’m afraid that this is more evidence that Ludwig is on a safari in search of the Amazonian Polar Bear or the Arctic Giraffe or some other endangered species, because he wasn’t there defending her honor. 😥

    I think he’s just sulking. Some kind of apology was demanded behind the scenes, I’m guessing, and L has never yet apologized for anything.

  2. Bureaucat says:

    It is finals week. Ludwig is inundated grading finals for his womens studies class.

  3. RoboMonkey says:

    Right now he’s too focused on those pesky Whos down in Whoville and all of their noise, noise, noise…

    eh, you too ludwigedout, alone we are, cooling alone and unknowing the why why do you leave U.S. so alone and uninformed, please, please “come out where ever you are”,

    too, also,

  7. Overlook says:

    What would happen in a war between Killgore Trout and Iceweasel?
    Who would the DoD support? The brown-nosing shit-stirrer, or the chamber-pot claiming to be female?

    • Bureaucat says:

      DoD would support a long protracted war with lots of screenshot opportunities.

    • Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

      I would support both of them.
      Or in other words….
      “Hey, let’s you and him fight!”

    • grandjunctionite says:

      I don’t think the iceweasel has been seen posting at the swamp since ludwig was told to go sit in the corner. I could be wrong, but I don’t think so.

      It is hard to believe that Luddy just gave up LGF cold turkey. I quit Cigs like that back when but man was it difficult.

      Ludwig is either in rehab, or posting under a sock somewhere. I miss him. I hope the LGF decompression and withdrawl didn’t kill him.

  8. Bureaucat says:

    LUDWIG VAN QUIXOTE (Man of the Time Out)
    Hear me now
    Oh thou warming and carbon filled world,
    Thou art base and debauched as can be;
    And a brave Climate Scientist lamb skins unfurled
    Now hurls down righteous misogyny!
    I am I, Lud Quixote,
    The Lord of the Time Out, �
    My destiny waits while I hide,
    And the wild female foxes
    Who questioned my greatness,
    they tempt me with their naked thighs.
    Whithersoever they blow,
    Onward to the memory hole!

  9. Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

    Help us Ludy-Wan……you’re our only hope.

  10. Speranza says:

    I think Lewd-pig is gone for good. A time-out would be for 24 – 72 hours no more.

    • Still, you’d think that CJ would announce something either way, but for some reason he appears to be hoping that the cult will just forget about it.

      I think our LGF lurkers should ask themselves why that might be?

      Or, perhaps Ludwig’s timeout is over and the poor guy is unaware.

      • Daedalus says:

        Ludwigw as a loyal soldier. By admitting he’s not coming back it shows CJ has no loyalty.

      • My Little Ponytail says:

        This must be what it was like in USSR in 1947. People disappeared. Don’t ask, don’t tell. If you wake up in the morning, it’s manna from heaven.

  11. snowcrash says:

    A scientific essay written by snork would be the best bait. Ludwig could not resist commenting.

    • African Moondog says:

      I left a comment at your new site Nodrog.

      • Basement Cat says:

        Nodrog is a Serb-hater. Everything he posts has already been refuted thoroughly elsewhere. There is no point in giving his pathetic halfassed blog any traffic by carrying on the dialogue there.

        It’s pointless to argue with an irrational bigot like Nodrog, for the simple reason that he keeps on yapping and repeating himself long after all of his arguments have been demolished and his “facts” proven false.

        Bigotry is not a philosophical position, but a disease. He is incapable of recognizing that he’s the one with the problem. You can’t reason somebody out of an entrenched pathology – it just doesn’t work that way.

    OT – here’s a cool tool, found at the good weasel

    • Bureaucat says:

      Cool stuff. I tried religions, genders, countries, etc. All give interesting results of what we like to see in print.

      • nil stooge says:

        Slight quibble – not sure ‘what we like to see’ is the right formulation. My take is that a mention in a book that sells 400 copies counts as much as a mention in a book that sells 400,000.

        And that – factoring in sales – would be an interesting tweak to the tool.

    • snowcrash says:

      How did they know I was going to look up all the dirty words? Very cool new toy.LOL

  16. grandjunctionite says:

    There is another scenario worthy of consideration. Suppose Johnson privately told Ludwig he was on double secret probation for a month. Suppose Ludwig was told by chuck that the flying monkeys would be monitoring all his posts on the intertoobs and reporting back and that any silly ramblings would reult in permanent exile from the little green cult.
    Lewdy would be forced to either walk away, in which case he would be posting somewhere else, or to have Miss S just take away his computer so as not to tempt fate.
    Lewdy may have gotten 30 days double secret probation and is laying low and waiting it out.

  17. Basement Cat says:

    I have already been banned three times from Digg. I am not going back there, not even to try to re-animate Ludwig and Miss Ssssss.

  18. Doppelganger says:

    I believe Ludwig was under the impression that he was in an elite group at LFG, that he was in fact one of the Gods on Olympus.

    and like Sharmuta, when the start truth that he is nothing more than a court jester, to be disposed of like so many guitar picks that cheetoh eater jazz man threw to the ladies, he was angry and humiliated.

    sharmuta vanished for good. I think lewd is also gone for good.
    He’d rather disappear than face the humiliation of groveling to chuckles and knowing that he is a minor player over there and iceweasel and kkkkkilgore ( both of whom, I am sure he himself regards as inferiors ) own his ass

  19. Beeduwine says:

    In all seriousness, it would be nice to know that LvQ is doing alright. It would be horrible if we kept teasing him and he was going through some sort of breakdown or worse.

      NEAT!

    • buzzsawmonkey says:

      Very interesting. You’ll note that the big spike started just before 1980.

      What happened then? Glad you asked. In 1977, there was a push to add “sexual orientation” to the civil rights ordinance in Dade County, Florida prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, religion, national origin, or sex in housing, employment and public accommodations. “Sexual orientation” was added by County Council vote, and a referendum was called to repeal the change in the ordinance. The anti-ordinance forces, some might remember, was headed by conservative singer Anita Bryant, who was nationally vilified for her role in the repeal efforts.

      The pro-ordinance forces could not claim the mantle of “civil rights,” because “sexual orientation” was not—and, for that matter, is not—a “suspect classification” requiring a high standard of strict scrutiny to justify discrimination. So the pro-ordinance forces began using the term “human rights”—it sounded close enough to “civil rights” to ride on the back of that movement still fresh in the public memory, and had the added advantage of being utterly vague and undefined, with the implied whine of “we’re human, too.”

      Since that political dustup, the gay-rights advocates have consistently used “human rights” as the umbrella under which they make their demands.

    LvQ was never a self described techno anarchist, was he? LOL

    I don’t think there was anything he admitted weakness in.

    And – to tie it all together – as ISTE recently documented, LvQ was [cue Twilight Zone theme]in the Navy

    • snowcrash says:

      This the worst commenting system ever. I miss many comments in the long threads. I almost missed Ludwigs military service.

      • nil stooge says:

        What would help – some – is the way it originally was – i.e. the comment numbers didn’t pointlessly renumber sequentially when new comments were added the way it does now.

    Just that corporate stuff

      There’s chromium in the water!!!!! Mom, what’s hexavalent? It must be really bad stuff, cuz the smart kids all talk about it like it’s icky.

  31. blogmocrat says:

    That Google book graphs tool is pretty neat … I find that you sometimes get better (more precise) results if you narrow the search years to, say, 1900-2000 or even 1950-2000. Fer instance, here’s one on the use of the term “global”:

      Nodrog needs to beg an account at lgf and promote it there. They may be his target audience.

    • Basement Cat says:

      I thought Nodrog got banned from LGF at least once already.

      CJ won’t let Nodrog back in as long as they can identify him as Gordon or Nodrog, even though he’s a Serb-basher like CJ and Kejda.
