Uh Oh


Gus 802 goes on to say that he’d support a “truce”, and Dark Falcon “bears them no ill will”.

Um, guys? Gal? You might want to pay attention, and actually read and comprehend what we post over here.  For once.  ‘Cause when we warn people about CJ, we’re including you.  That’s right, you.  After all, I just posted this like, a week ago:

Never mind the fact that CC’s blogroll is a veritable who’s-who list of Those Who Are Henceforth Deemed Crazy by the Grand Lizardoid.

Truce?   Look, I know the OR reference is a year old and all that, but c’mon.   In the world of LGF, many lizards have gone from friendly to “creep” (CJ’s favorite catch all pejorative), but never the other way around.   So, be careful.  I don’t want to dig you three out of the memory hole.   Like Ludwig, we prefer to see you guys healthy.

    I saw this too. After reading through that Gus kid’s comments, he appears to just be a stupid kid who wants to be entertained. He howled at the moon last night for controversial statements from the other lizards and then ranted with unfiltered jealousy his fantasy to use AGW as a means to shutter the film industry–complete with looney video for reference.

    This kid is really not comprehending what is written as a friendly warning to all lizards who dare enter the chamber, and is now on my lizard death watch list.

    Gus, read baby! Read!

  2. Mandingo Warrior says:

    Oh, and I thought I would add that one of the lizards was adept enough to point out (quite possibly through experience) that DoD’s got no true log in feature, and therefore it could be anyone commenting.

    I wonder how it will sit with chunk (who we know reads here) to wonder with all of the chatter in the swamp about this site….might some lizards be posting here? I don’t think Gus is gonna live very long.

  3. Arachne says:

    CC doesn’t want to get involved. So what? There are plenty of people that cross-post. If CC people want to come here and bash Charles, they do. By the way, the reason there is a CC and a Blogmocracy and a GCP (who, by the way, confined “Nancy” bashing to one forum and one forum only) is because YOUR boss told them to get off his blog and get one of their own. They did. And they did to Chunky what Chunky did to KKKos, Democratic Underground and HuffPo – hold the idiocy up to public ridicule.

    And by the way, Floral Giraffe, if the CC posters are such “nice people” (and they are – Little Old Lady, Dianna, etc.) – ask yourself why those NICE people are no longer welcome and banned at the site you post at and why you can’t post there without permission.

    I realize this will take reasoning. Try.

  4. Arachne says:

    Oh – and Gus? “You get divorced. You move on.” Yeah, that works all the time.

  5. Speranza says:

    Lot’s of CC people psot at Blogmocracy including the owner of the blog Running Bare.

    By the way FloralGiraffe, your Lord & Master one Charles Foster Johnson referred to the CC as “creeps”.

  7. Formercorpsman says:

    Ah, the fucking audacity.

    Realwest left without making an exit. The inital policy of the C2 site was not to mention the swamp, because they wanted a fresh start. Unless they have been reading as of late, that policy has not really been enforced, and quite frankly, they mock the swamp quite often.

    Furthermore, you beloved leader openly mocked those same folks who took no shots of their own at him, yet he smeared them. Same goes for that slobbering Sharmuta, IIRC, berating them for leaving since Charles did so much for them. on top of that, the blithering idiot Irish Rose, the same one Realwest went out of his way for to make sure she was able to connect with her deploying son, even went out of her way to slap him while fellating Johnson.

    Add to that, the email I got from Reine when this was all going down, to join a blog called Chatham Breezes, offered much in the same manner as what C2 was about, yet never lifted off the ground, and in hindsite, certainly looks to me like Charles sending out one of his people to find out who was doing what, in the wake of his decision to change his format. Funny enough, at the time I got her email, (I still have this by the way) I had no idea C2 was even an idea being kicked around by other folks at the time.

    Don’t take this post as me speaking for, or on the behalf of anyone. Truce? Charles shit on these people. These motherfuckers are out of their minds. He just shit on Luddy. Where is he now?

    What this says to me, is that Charles site stats suck so badly, that he needs to find someway to enahnce participation. He is allowing them to opine about this openly on his site, you know he would squash this if it were not the case.

    Unreal. Shitbirds.

      Irish Rose’s hideous treatment of Realwest who did such a wonderful thing for her was the most vile thing I ever herd of on LGF. Charles has referred to CC as “creeps” and as “The Flouncer Blog”. Gus 802 you are a fucking idiot.

      Btw I know of at least 20 people on blogmocracy who also post on CC. There are probably more.

      • Arachne says:

        I post at plenty of places under different nics simply because the name is either taken or there is someone already posting with a nic very similar to mine.

      • Formercorpsman says:

        As well, they have their facts backwards.

        Yeah, when C2 started out, their policy was not to mention the swamp because there were still folks there who were friends, and Charles declared the edict of who can post where.

        Now? I have seen a number of posts at C2 that will mock the swamp, albeit not like here, but they certainly have acknowledged the insanity of what was once all of our hang out.

        And yes, that IR bullshit was the gem of it all. Just like them dipshits now defending Charles for all that he did for the folks who left,/ where the hell are they now?

        Gus, FG where are they now? Your posts could be their very same posts from before. Where are they now?

        We know you are reading here. Is any of this sinking in?

    • Kos Laughs At Chuckles says:

      So Cookbook Girl was sent out by al-Fatass to flesh out “traitors in his midst”? Kinda fits his M.O. of using others to do his dirty work.

      I was always suspicious that sending her $$ for a cookbook was a bad idea because she would harvest the information and hand it to Charles, and this lends more credence.

    re: #600 Sionainn

    Funny thing is that there is a lot of right/left overlap on numerous issues when one is dealing with rational people, like on LGF. I haven’t got a clue which lizards are conservative or liberal or in between and that’s a huge reason why I love this place so much.

    Heh.
    Yep, it’s difficult to tell at times, is it not?

    I suspect most rational people agree that certain issues must be dealt with sensibly; the question is how it gets done that’s at issue, not whether it should be done. And there you have, IMO, the gorgeousness of LGF (plus the fact that a lot of really smart people are here, makes for most interesting conversations and for those who recognize what’s on offer, an opportunity to sharpen their opinions).

    Comment number 592 from mikehaas82 is about to get memory holed. So here it is in entirety:

    “2nd post to this forum – in case anyone is wondering.

    Wow – 580 odd posts to this thread and all over the board, mostly off-topic. As I’ve mentioned before, I became a fan of LGF when Charles very bravely denounced the Right for what it had become and the GOP in particular.

    Now we have a hot-button issue and this forum shows its true conservative colors which, I suppose, shouldn’t be surprising as it *is* a conservative forum.

    I understand the negative feelings towards Manning and Assange. What they did was frightening. Except I don’t necessarily equate frightening with wrong. However, considering the actions taken by the Government and other institutions to censor and otherwise keep associates from reading or quoting from the leaked documents, I find it incredibly disingenuous that both the press as well as blogs such as LGF have had no issue aidding and abetting WikiLeaks atop their high horses, discussing the material at length all the while maintaing the pretense of being “the concerned public”.

    Now this forum slams one of the better and admittedly “left-wing” blogger/journalists, Glenn Greenwald, who’s award winning commentary as been met with much praise and slams him both professionally, personally and yes, with the type of bigotry LGF has up until now, abhorred, at least officially. Yes, Greenwald is a Jew. So am I. Scant mention of whom Greenwald has been professionally associated with – he’s dismissed here as some run-of-the-mill ‘net blogger, which he is not.

    But, as I said – I couldn’t really expect the great atmosphere that LGF had become, realistically looking at the Tea Party, GOP Leaders and right-wing pundits-at-large to last or at least, extend towards these boogey-men.

    I for one am thankful – yes, thankful this material was leaked. The only harm done was to the egos and the back-stabbing nature of the World’s “civilized” governments. Its about damn time the public and the World learned the truth of back-office international politics. You really worry about some poor diplomat being placed in harm’s way because of some leaked memo as opposed to the men, women and children who have lost their lives in the past decade – really?

    I’m not buying this forum’s faux indignation at WikiLeaks or Assange or Manning. ESPECIALLY in light of the fact that this Forum has openly discussed the material. That means of course, as I pointed out before – there isn’t a single person who needs to have access to or otherwise read, WikiLeaks – all they have to do is watch the network news or check out the myriad number of blogs such as LGF to get all the leaked information they can choke down.

    Shame on you.

    Mike”

    Gus, you are a fucking moron. CC has a policy, no LGF talk on the front page. But do not think or deceive yourself, CC has sub-forums where kicking the crap out of LGF is the soup du jour. Nobody over their likes Charles or LGF and they have taken very specific steps to keep LGF sock puppets and fools out. Even if Charles would let you post their, CC wouldn’t let you.

    • Basement Cat says:

      I never asked for an invite to CC because I consider it too mild. Were I to speak my mind there, they’d ban me in an instant. I don’t see the point of posting or commenting at a place where I would not be welcome to push the envelope of political speech for what I believe are constructive purposes. Sometimes I’m wrong; in that case, the commenters correct me and I accept it and let it go. When I’m right, the commenters are happy that they’ve learned something interesting or important that they were unlikely to get anywhere else.

      The most stalwart and committed counterjihad people who were banned from LGF seem to have migrated to Blogmocracy, Gates of Vienna, Atlas Shrugs, and Jihad Watch. I contribute to Blogmocracy and comment at the other sites fairly often.

        I think you have a skewed view of C2, both as regards its alleged “mildness” and what you believe is a propensity for banning. But that’s OK; not every forum is to everyone’s taste. As some have noted, there is some cross-pollination between C2 and Blogmocracy/DoD; for the most part, it enriches both sites.

    • Nilla says:

      When CC was started, there was no bashing of LGF allowed either on the “main page” or the subforums. We wanted to move on from LGF, not prop the corpse up in the living room and experience the stink continually.

      The Blogmocracy and DoD chose a different path and that’s cool. I probably post more here than at CC just because of time constraints. All three places provided a new home for those of us who either left or were targeted by chunk.

      Yup. Pretty basic. Government sees their unearned and illegal power over peoples lives being challenged. Their ability to suck the life out of the industrious to buy the votes of the lazy.

    I suppose I should mention for the record and full disclosure that I attempted to register with CC back in January, and my confirmation was put in limbo. I forgot about it ’till Sept. and emailed back something like “I take it that’s a no?”. After some apparent deliberation I did get an account, but it was suspended shortly after saying “hi”. After a few more emails I guess it was determined that my presence there was going to ruffle too many feathers.

    I view Glenn Greenwald the same way I view trolls — not worth the time or effort to respond. Anyone who churns out thousands of outraged words a day will occasionally come up with valid points, but in Greenwald’s case they’re buried amid so much dishonesty and exaggeration that I can’t understand why anyone even bothers.

    My history with Greenwald goes back years, and he’s been a perfect ass for that whole time. I have no interest in poring through any more of his verbose screeds

The Blogmoc gets an unfair rap. No one has to petition,you just sign up for an account. Old spats are forgiven eventually. You get an open forum to say whatever you want and it is a fairly easygoing place. There is no behind the scenes discussion and machinations. WYSIWYG. We are different from the CC but we are by no means the ugly step child some think. We are just different. Some folks like each other, some don’t, but you can still participate. IMO, it is unlikely that Gus and Floral will get in the CC. They stand a better chance at Blogmoc with a different nic and then having a big”coming out” party after a while. That’s my 2 cents for defending the rep of the Blogmoc.

      I can’t say this is the absolute facts on the ground. But, in hindsight it does seem suspicious given the way it was presented, and the subsequent aftermath of who landed where, was banned, etc.

      My response was largely ambivelent to the email, but it was obvious by that point it was not just a change in blog direction or theory, but genuine hostility towards those who for so long participated in the daily existence of the blog.

      I can say without any reservation, I was banned, and given no reason whatsoever. I was one of the dummies who thought the direction of the blog was just a phase, and stayed on way too long as it was.

      I actually sent a little email to Charles asking why my account was banned, and never was given a response. I was not posting anywhere else but LGF. I would drop in over here to read, mostly because I would read all of the horrible things that were being said, and just accepted the lies being espoused by Charles, and his bullshit claims of getting death threats.

      The guy is truly a piece of trash.

    I suspect most rational people agree that certain issues must be dealt with sensibly; the question is how it gets done that’s at issue, not whether it should be done. And there you have, IMO, the gorgeousness of LGF (plus the fact that a lot of really smart people are here, makes for most interesting conversations and for those who recognize what’s on offer, an opportunity to sharpen their opinions).

    Reine is out of her mind. All the smart people left ages ago.

      My interactions with Reine were positive. From my perspective as a conservative (moderate depending on who you talk to) I would keep going back to the well at LGF to engage in discussions not quite seeing how far the ground had shifted. I did my best to defend my POV but I found fewer and fewer threads worth commenting on.

      Some of the stuff I thought I was being informed about turned out to be just not true – but not being an expert in areas or a full time blog conneseur I didn’t know what I didn’t know sometimes.

      I would have said there was open discussion on LGF remembering the pre-banning days simply because I wasn’t around a lot and didn’t engage in discussions that were open bashing of my views. My departure was sealed when Kilgore refused to back up his assertions with anything but an F-you then Charles let it stand.

      I was willing to be a polite guest but simply looking over here with the same nic got me blocked.

      As a recent departee I don’t see those who stay as dumb or corrupted as much as wanting to try to voice their point of view and trying to do so in a way that doesn’t get them booted. At some point however you have to see that the environment is too restricted to have a decent discussion and move on to freer pastures.

      Chunk restored the comment that got mikechaas the butt end of chunk’s rifle:

      “re: #766 Charles

      For Chrissake, Charles – are you fucking kidding me? I read the link and I have to wonder if any of the other posters here did. Ah, poor baby – Greenwald lumped you in with Limbaugh and other Righty-Sites and probably and justifiably hasn’t read your forum in ages (why should he?) because there was a time, Charles, when LGF fucking *WAS* a filth-spewing shithole!!! And I know that, Charles – because I’ve been reading this blog for quite some time now.

      [b]Guess there’s no possibility that Greenwald doesn’t give a flying fuck about Charles Johnson and that he’s missed your epiphany regarding the far-right, eh?[/b]

      And that makes Glenn Greenwald a “despicable” human being and a “L.I.A.R.” Mr. Johnson – YOU are an A.S.S.H.A.T.

      As for the rest of you – you know damn well you know little if NOTHING about Glenn Greenwald, have probably never read his Salon column and are aping Charles’ opinion. BULLSHIT! I wonder how many of you had never even *heard* of Glenn Greenwald before Charles got his panties in a wad.

      Y’know Charles…I might be dead-wrong about WikiLeaks. But there’s no “might” about the fact that you are DEAD wrong about Greenwald and have nothing but your bruised ego to prove otherwise.”

      Man, the Jazz Man struck him down and made him an example, but it’s clear that the natives are restless.

    Floral Giraffe says of CC: “The nicest of the banned went there.”

    No, FG, you’ve got the cart before the horse. The people who originally went to CC didn’t go there because they were banned from LGF. They weren’t bannees when they set it up. These “good folks” were only banned AFTER they committed the crime of joining CC, a blog that absolutely forbade any discussion of LGF and CJ.

    How sick is that, FG? Why don’t you ask Charles about it?
    (Be sure to tell him how “nice” those “good folks” are, too. Name names. He’ll love it.)

    buzzsawmonkey :

    I never asked for an invite to CC because I consider it too mild. Were I to speak my mind there, they’d ban me in an instant. I don’t see the point of posting or commenting at a place where I would not be welcome to push the envelope of political speech for what I believe are constructive purposes.

    “Mild? Oh, more than just mild. Did you know we’re joking in it?”

    —Madge the Manicurist, at C2

    I think you have a skewed view of C2, both as regards its alleged “mildness” and what you believe is a propensity for banning. But that’s OK; not every forum is to everyone’s taste. As some have noted, there is some cross-pollination between C2 and Blogmocracy/DoD; for the most part, it enriches both sites.

    And from DoD/Blogmocracy to GCP as well. I don’t know if I’m the only regularly posting Freeper here, for instance, because Freep has a very stringent posting policy and here and the Blogmocracy works best for me and my style. But rodan isn’t going to give me a hard time for posting at Freep or GCP, unlike the Swampmaster.

  34. Opilio says:

    Although this is probably too nuanced a point for the LGF’ers to grasp, CC is comparable to theBlogmocracy, not DoD.

    Mocking all things LGF is the Raison d’être of this blog.

    As DoD has grown, theBlogmocracy has ‘moved on’ (for the most part).

    Dear SF (we know this is not your real name)

    Thank you for your interest in The 1.0 Automatic Flounce Generator®.

    Yes. We have tried and true methods for achieving not only a flounce, but also a Truly Successful Flounce®. When it comes to Little Green Foosballs it is not enough to simply be banned, LGF is the only Commercial Opinion Blog that actually bans people before they comment. To us here at The 1.0 Automatic Flounce Generator® a Truly Successful Flounce® is one that will cause Chunks Johnstoung to do for you what he has never done before. (e.g. having each and every comment you have made deleted.)

    Remember, there are stages to a Truly Successful Flounce® namely, the Pre Pre-Flounce the Pre-Flounce, the Flounce and the TSF.

    The Pre Pre-flounce is like the presentation when Fly Fishing, you must get the Flounceie (in this case CJ) to notice you. The Pre-Flounce is when Chunk rises to the “bate”.
    The Flounce is where you “set the hook” and get banned.

    We entered you parameters into The 1.0 Automatic Flounce Generator® the following are the strongest suggestions for a Truly Successful Flounce®.

    Pre Per-Flounce: Try to do this before Chunk wakes up. Be Convoluted and Specious.

    Pre-Flounce: Include the following phrases;

    “Charles, I believe you’re an incredibly brave man,…
    …you are more a “hero”…
    …must call it that,…
    …I don’t disrespect your opinion…
    …I was once a very conservative Republican…
    …you’ve been pretty damn good in the past of writing your own responses…
    …You have more leverage than you might realize.
    …I’m a Jew…
    …call me over-sensitive…”

    Flounce: Use the Following phrases;

    …For Chrissake, Charles…
    …lumped you in with Limbaugh…
    …there was a time, Charles…
    …when LGF fucking *WAS*…
    …reading this blog for quite some time now.
    …a flying fuck about Charles Johnson.
    …YOU are an A.S.S.H.A.T.
    …As for the rest of you…are aping Charles’ opinion.
    …Charles got his panties in a wad.
    …you are DEAD wrong about ___ and have nothing but your bruised ego to prove otherwise.

    The 1.0 Automatic Flounce Generator® computes that if you follow this format and phrasing, there is a .9998 chance that Chunk Johnstoung will not only ban you but delete your Flounce and then restore it, thus accomplishing a Truly Successful Flounce®.
    Thank you for letting us help with all your flouncing needs.

    Billy Bob Butternutt
    President and CEO
    The 1.0 Automatic Flounce Generator®.
