Charles Explains The Memory Hole

Today, Andrew Breitbart retweeted our LGF Memory Hole Mosaic, which pretty much forced CJ to say something about it:

I had to laugh too, ’cause this is coming from the guy who makes a bigger deal over other sites’ pages disappearing into the memory hole than any other blogger, and who has labeled folks a “craven coward” for blocking the Wayback Machine and Google cache. In other words, this isn’t about the % of total threads or anything like that; we’re simply calling him out for being a complete hypocrite (since none of the active lizards are brave enough to do it). 

Anyway, is it 47? I don’t know; I’ve never sat down and counted. But however many that we have on that page, it only represents the deleted threads/pages that we’ve been able to recover. That, of course, is an important distinction. We know there are many more missing, but we can’t exactly prove it (with screencaps), because… CJ has blocked the Wayback Machine and Google cache. Funny how that works.

    How do you get the twitter url of a tweet to post here?

    Care to comment Charles?

    Notice, folks — it wasn’t a journalist who took this photo. It came from the US Army.

    If you look in your archive Charles you will find that is YOUR comment in the now deleted thread 15728_There_Are_No_Words

    Of course you could have removed the picture from your server and provided a link, but oh no….

    Was there something in the COMMENTS to that article you wanted to hide Charles?

    Yep!

    • Internet Septic Tank Engineer says:

      Ok, and just another very slight attention to detail. It is just a very tiny detail but,

      The Wayback Machine screen capture that this site features of the dissapeared page tells a story.

      Charles posted the article on May 4th 2005, the article was still up on 16th Dec 2005.

      How do we know this amazing fact Charles?

      We know this because on Dec 16, 2005 the Montreal area got more than 30 centimetres of snow.

      So, want to tell us why it was up for over SEVEN months?

      😉

  3. Beeduwine says:

    And now he is doing the “AllahPundit did it too” defense a few comments down. Is there not a word for that line of defense at LGF? ‘To cock’ or something?

  4. Stillactive says:

    Thank you Chunk for protecting us from things we can’t understand.

  5. mattm says:

    It is fun living rent free in his head.

  6. snowcrash says:

    Having his deletions and post changes made public bothers him a lot more than he is letting on.

  7. wolfie says:

    “Some were deleted shortly after being posted because they were mistakes or proved to be bad sources.”

    Yes, Chucky, I have to agree that’s a fair reason for quick deletion.
    So I assume that you will apologize to Jim Hoft for your hysterical reaction last week to his quick deletion of news that proved to be inaccurate. Eh?
    😆

  8. Bagua says:

  9. Whatever says:

    “Someone sent me a copy”.

    Uh-huh.

  10. wolfie says:

    “…I’m not trying to ‘hide’ something by deleting those entries, I’m trying to keep bad information off the interwebs.”

    Ah, receive the spirit of that one, brothers and sisters! 😆

  11. swamprat says:

    He has nothing to hide. He just blocks google cache, deletes pages, erases comments, blocks the wayback machine and google cache in order “to keep bad information off the interwebs”. While he has critized others for doing the exact same things.
    And also used others doing so as a defense.
    Tu quoque, indeed.

    Ditto magical balance fairy.

    • Bunk X says:

      Kinda like sending Obdicrunt to rewrite the entire Wikipedia article on LGF “without bias.”

      • Iron Fist says:

        “Fron 2001 until 2008, LGF was eeeeevil, eeeeevil, eeeeevil, but since it has become double-plus good, and Charles hasn’t changed” about sum it up? obicunt is about the worst of the psychophants. I’m sure he makes Chuckles’ loins swell with pride 🙄

  12. Whatever says:

    “crazy anti-jihad blogs”…

    Stop it, Chuck! You’re making my sides hurt!

  13. buzzsawmonkey says:

    Ernst Janning: “You have to believe me. Those millions of people—I didn’t know it would come to that.”

    Judge Dan Haywood: “Herr Janning, it had come to that the first time you sentenced someone you knew to be innocent.”

    —Judgment at Nuremberg

    It does not matter what percentage of posts the Mad King deletes—or restores from deletion. He deleted his integrity, any pretension to honesty, and, indeed, any vestige of his manhood when he began revising history to fit his personal pique.

  14. Yea and nothing CJ posted there comes close to explaining the retroactive deletions of threads like the LGF Dictionary, the Pam Geller “photo of the day”, etc. He won’t touch those.

    I do have another thread on deck, but this came up and is going to wind up delaying it until later. The LGFers will have kittens when they see it; we’ve got a throbbing memo and everything. 😉

  15. Mosh Pit Viper says:

    Has he deleted everything ever posted by “St. Pancake” yet? She was once a very popular poster there.

    But you know Charles always hated that name and never encouraged people to make fun of useful idiots like Rachel Corrie. Never.

  16. swamprat says:

    “Someone sent me a copy of the stalker blog’s ‘memory hole mosaic’ recently. I had to laugh.”

    Don’t feel all alone.

  17. nil says:

    As usual with Johnson you have to look for the weasel words.

    In this case it’s his “They have 47 pages that I’ve deleted…”.

    But note, he’s not claiming that’s the true number of deletions, that’s just what he’s willing to admit to because he thinks that’s all that we’ve found.

  18. wolfie says:

    “I make no apologies to anyone for deleting any of them.”

    Yeah, we know, we know. No apologies from the holy fatso. 😆

    But please keep those explanations and excuses coming, Chucky.
    This stuff is hilarious!!!

  19. Iron Fist says:

    Beeduwine :He will be cracking down on porn soon. And then quilting sites.

    Chucxkles won’t “crack down” on porn. Not ever. Porn is absolutely necessacary to his maitenance of himself as a self-sufficient individual, if you know what I mean…

  20. swamprat says:

    I read charle’s explaination of the stalker blog’s ‘memory hole mosaic’ recently. I had to laugh.

  21. nil says:

    As noted here before, Johnson will scrub parts of his history from the internet and then temporarily reappear it, and then scrub it again, and so on.

    In the most recent example of this, over 5.2 million comments from pre-2009 LGF threads were scrubbed from the internet.
    (5.2 million is about 60% of all LGF comments ever.)

    Here’s the recent scrub schedule for 5.2 million LGF comments:


    prior - 20Dec2010 15:00 GMT : scrubbed
    20Dec2010 15:00 GMT - 06Jan2011 18:00 GMT : visible
    06Jan2011 18:00 GMT - 15Jan2001 02:00 GMT : scrubbed
    15Jan2011 02:00 GMT - 15Jan2011 05:00 GMT : visible
    15Jan2011 05:00 GMT - 16Jan2011 00:00 GMT : scrubbed
    16Jan2011 00:00 GMT - present : visible

    I.e. 5.2 million comments have been deleted from the internet for about 1/3 of the time over the last month.

    Draw your own conclusions why Johnson is doing this.

  22. Daedalus says:

    Chuck’s been caught out there.

  23. nil says:

    Wow, the things you learn about yourself from Andrew Breitbart’s sycophants!
    Did you know I once had a post that said Palestinians are cannibals? No? Neither did I. (And in fact, I didn’t.)
    Did you know that I’ve been engaged in mass deletions of my archives, to hide all evidence of my extremist past? No? Neither did I. (I haven’t.)
    Did you know that I’ve deleted a lot of comments from LGF? Actually, yes, that is true, because I block-wiped the entire contributions of some of the worst abusers of LGF’s earlier days, people like Iron Fist and the venal little twerps who run the stalker sites. I make no apologies for that whatsoever. Their hateful, often sick comments were laying there like old turds, and the place is cleaner without them.

    • “Twerps”? LOL First I’ve seen that one. Someone is angry. :p

      OT- funny, I just watched the very informative 60 Minutes feature on Loughner, and no mention was made of Sarah Palin or the wingnuts. Friggin’ conservative MSM bias!

      • snowcrash says:

        Uh oh Chen, he is going to post your picture and addy again. He outs people when he is OUT of control.

      • dwells38 says:

        Maybe they’re still mad at CJ over the TANG memo/Dan Rather take-down and decided they won’t validate his recent feverish blame-the-right for Loughner posts . That’s got to be tough for him either way. Even if they agreed with him that Loughner’s lunacy is right-wing inspired he’s already proved they’re lying assholes. And when they don’t he just looks like a hyperbolic ass along with the rest of the left-wing lose-tards.

        Your cut is knowing that you did the right thing in helping to rid the world of yet another nuisance.

        In addition to that, other potential nuisances can see what happened to Chuckles and calculate their own risk/reward ratio accordingly.

        I intend to keep at it until Chuckles no longer exists either in cyberspace or anywhere else.

    • Basement Cat says:

      Those whom he deleted were not abusers. Nor did they commence to own or run any of what he calls “stalker sites” until such time as he had already banned and blocked the commenters in question.

      Paranoids generally do have enemies in the real world, and they have those enemies because THEY DESERVE THEM. The only problem is that the paranoids are rarely overcome and destroyed by their real-world enemies anywhere near soon enough.

    • fat pig CFnJ didn’t delete my comments. he should though because, you know, you can’t have a fanatic creationist leaving “turds” all over his stinky website. he should also delete the front page threads that are literally MY pictures and the result of MY time and effort.

    • Iron Fist says:

      I’m a “worst abuser”? How amusing. He could delete my posts, but he can’t delete that I was one of the core posters when LGF was really something. That is, for what it is worth (very little, actually :P) beyond his feeble poewer to redact. At the time, he didn’t mind what I said, and there were a lot of people who felt I had a valid arguement to put forward.

    • Johnson's Pancake House says:

      I block-wiped the entire contributions of some of the worst abusers of LGF’s earlier days

      So, a control freak JUST HAPPENED to let crap lay around for years and FINALLY got around to deleting it? But Klansman Trout drops some turds over at HotAir and then whines with Daddy Cuckles when they aren’t immediately erased. UrS lOgIc iS cOnFuSinG!!!

  25. nil says:

    snowcrash :
    He is broke and can’t afford the upkeep and he is a slimeball.

    My inference was that it’s a way for Johnson to scrub his history for days and weeks at a time (the scrubbed time spans are increasing in length) and still claim he hasn’t really deleted any history. It’s just that 60% of his history isn’t there 33% of the time when you might happen to look for it, not that he’d ever admit to that math.

    But our explanations aren’t mutually exclusive 🙂

    • Basement Cat says:

      In addition to that, he has deleted ALL of the comments, regardless of what thread they are on, by various people he has banned and blocked, including, for example Savage Nation and 1389.

      • nil says:

        True, at last count (yesterday) there were 296,163 permanently deleted comments at LGF.

        That’s 3.4% of the 8.8 million current total.

        And then there are the 5.2+ million comments that are deleted and then occasionally re-appeared before being deleted again.

      • dwells38 says:

        He’s obviously just trying to keep hidden for most of the time just what a right-wing sympathizer he was for number of years from his new left-wing audience. He went full-on Dennis Miller and then tried to come back. It just ain’t gonna work. That site was strong right-wing POV or I wouldn’t have been there. He and the commenters zinged the left-lunies daily, hour by hour. He’s trying to inch himself to a spot where that can be reconciled some how without admitting it’s the case.

    There are over 100,000 comments at LGF using the word ‘kill’.

    Stripping away all text but the word ‘kill’, you’d have a 300+ page novel comprised of nothing but the word ‘kill’.

    • Whatever says:

      Does that include instances of “killgore”?

      • nil says:

        Hmmmm….

        There are 8.8 million LGF comments currently – all available, assuming the rolling deletion of the 5.2 million pre-2009 comments hasn’t kicked in again – I’ll have to check that.

        They’re coming up on their 9 millionth comment in a matter of weeks, btw – always a celebratory moment at LGF, passing another millionth milestone.

      • nil says:

        No, I re-checked – 101,956 comments with the word ‘kill’ (i.e. comments with ‘killgore’ only were not counted).

        That’s a minimum of 101,956 uses of the word ‘kill’ (some comments may have used ‘kill’ more than once).

        That’s a 300+ page book with every page filled up with only the word ‘kill’.

        No wonder he’s hot to dump 5.2+ million = 60% of his comments.

  28. Mandingo Warrior says:

    I think Chuck misses the point. The point is he can no longer start his flame wars without the DoD being involved. He can no longer, from this day forward claim he does not read this site because he admitted today that he did. He also can no longer pull his shit and ignore this place because we are one tweet away from putting his follies in the hands of the people that he’s smearing.

    Long story short; pack up the site CJ. You’re screwed.

      His fatal error, that he made a couple of years ago, was pissing off large numbers of people, most of whom were smarter than him. If there’s another situation like this anywhere on the internet, I’m not aware of it. He has a nemesis site, and the people there (here) are getting copious entertainment making him walk around in the streets with his undies around his ankles.

      Not smart being so fast and loose with your superiors, Chuck. You’re like Ahmadinnerjacket, thinking that your high-tech nuke plant is so super-keen, only to find out that your nemesis snuck a mickey into it, and now your hosed.

      Chuck, the internet is a dangerous place for people like you who think you’re smarter than you are.

    Is that one deleted yet? lol

    There was a construction supervisor like this, once. His crew learned to ALWAYS make him sign off on any changes by signing his name next to the changes on the blueprint. No signee, no workee.
    All too often he would disavow the needed changes. They would stick EXACTLY to the print, or hold off if the work wasn’t possible.

    I have seen charles say that he never used that phrase. Yet he was able to take the credit in your link. He has it both ways. It seems to depend on which way current opinion flows. He is able to chastise others for their flaws, but his own he wiggles around. That is human nature, I suppose. But he is not able to keep those he disagrees with as friends. It would be better to disagree, and gently remand them and try to make them reconsider. Instead, there is much wailing and gnashing of teeth and rending of clothes and wearing of sackcloth and heaping of ashes upon the head.

    It is never; “My friend, sadly, has become a bigot, but I still love him and will attempt to help him regain his sanity.”

    Nope.

    It is instead; “AHHHH! You Bigot! Begone from me you foul and unclean beast!”

    Too much drama. Over and over.

    Come in from the cold, Charles. Relax. Put your feet up. Learn to let evil destroy itself. Read Will Rodgers. Study martial arts, especially the parts that deal with turn ones attackers forces upon himself. Take a breathe.

      Would it be wrong to sing one more chorus of “Lewdy Doomsday,” in honor of everyone’s favorite swamp-thing? Hell, why not?

      Lewdy Doomsday

      He would never say where he taught class
      That Hari (Un Mata) said “You’re gone.”
      While the sun is bright
      It won’t affect our plight
      No one knows
      Just why it snows

      Goodbye, Lewdy Doomsday
      Who could shame a slut like you?
      Weasy’s game was too strong today
      Still I’m gonna miss you..

      Don’t question why she needs to be so mean
      She’ll sell you to the Sheik Of Araby
      She just can’t be tamed
      She’s a blog-whore Chunky’s gained
      And no pounds lost
      We know who’s boss

      Goodbye, Lewdy Doomsday
      Who could shame a slut like you?
      Weasy’s game was too strong today
      Still I’m gonna miss you..

      There’s no Irish Rose, I heard her say
      Hatch your schemes before they slip away
      Lying all the time
      Billions teem
      And will not be denied
      No oceans rise

      Goodbye, Lewdy Doomsday
      Who could shame a slut like you?
      Weasy’s game was too strong today
      Still I’m gonna miss you..

      • Mosh Pit Viper says:

        Being discredited on the internet is kinda like being poor in Bangladesh, no?

    • Iron Fist says:

      The question is how much of his personal money isChuckles willing to spend to keep LGF upo as a vanity site. He can’t be making any money off of it, but it also isn’t sucking up the bandwidth requirements it had when it had 100,000 loyal readers. It probably costs him $100 or less a month to keep it on air. Yeah, that is a small car payment, but it isn’t the end of the world. Or is it? After the pig of a site he has ass the example of his work for the last ten years, he isn’t getting programming jobs, and he was never a graphic designer. The only interesting graphics he ever had were done by Cox and Forkum. Money may be getting a little thin

      • Whatever says:

        He can always go Blogspot. A lot of serious blogs out there operate free of charge.

      • dwells38 says:

        I’m not certain but I thought I’d read here a few months ago that he rec’vd a goodly sized inheritance somewhere in the 800 grand range. I’ve also heard he lives in a gated community. So I would guess he took some of that money, bought himself a nice house and started blogging with little pressure to do anything except take the occasional gig so he doesn’t have to cut into his principal. Unless he’s taken a big hit in investments I assume he can continue like this indefinitely taking a few bucks in from the loozards who actually gave him their credit card numbers to stop the ads. That probably covers the costs or maybe he has to kick in just a little here and there.

      • Briareus says:

        He was most certainly a graphic designer *ahem* once.
        http://diaryofdaedalus.com/2010/11/28/sherman-set-the-wayback-machine-to-1987/

        As far as that “gated community” business, nah. He’s got a side gate, though. He locks it and unlocks it at random.

  44. Kos Laughs At Chuckles says:

    Chen (and others):

    As one of the people who have been with Ace and his spinoff blogs (an HotAir as well), I love what you guys do here. You, among others, have rattled him so much, he is like a quarterback who has been hit too many times and “hears footsteps”. He is lashing out, and getting his ass kicked on twitter on a damn near daily basis, and it is a thing of beauty.

    My hat is off to you. Keep up the good work. And protect your flanks from his “out-bots” that he unleashes in retaliation.

    • Speranza says:

      Notice what a lousy debater fat man is without his banning stick. All he can say t o Breitbart is “Are you drunk”?” or “Are you on you rmeds?” – such a funny ponytailed shut-in!

      • Kos Laughs At Chuckles says:

        IIRC, he pulled out the “whatever” (or something similar) card on Meliisa Clouthier and never directly responded the Nolte, just trying to distract and divert to the next “squirrel”. I wonder if it’s hitting him that he or the few left in the bunker are cannon fodder if/when they try to debate outside of the protection of the Green Wall. I mean, nobody left over there will dare mention it to him, for the fear of banning and outing (prolly why LVQ has been so well behaved since he came back) is too great. So, they wander outside the walls, believing their own updings and karma ratings, only to get humiliated by people who have functioning cortexes.

        And you wonder why Kos, Huffpo, MediaMatters, TPM, and ThinkProgress don’t want anything to do with him and his bunker dwellers?

      • dwells38 says:

        Yeah there are small-time bloggers and then there are talented media types who are merely using the blog format along with others. CJ gets his ass kicked by the latter. He must know now he can’t ascend to the next level like a Michelle Malkin or Breitbart who are both actual journalists and TV/photo-genic personalities. And when he tangles with them they rip him to shreds.

  45. Mandingo Warrior says:

    Yeah, with the memory hole mosaic in the hands of one of the guys CJ is flaming, that is the beginning of the end. Keep in mind sully has only used one of the dod tools at his disposal.

    He’s not half fat enough, but with the bicycle helmet on, he does bear a certain crazy resemblance to our own King Adipose Rex. I got a good laugh out of it, anyway.

      I don’ think Chunk ever discussed his opinion on the subject.
      back in the day, there was one verboten topic at the swamp.
      And that was abortion.
      His stated rational was that the topic was so divisive that all it did was start flame wars between poster.
      Yup….back then there was a stated concern for topics that caused arguments.

      Of course later on it became “Bash Christians all the time”, and if you didn’t like it…..tough sh*t.

      • wolfie says:

        In fact, Chuck was opposed to the Baby Born Alive act, which even NARAL didn’t oppose and which even the Boxer, Mikulski, Pelosi crowd voted for.

        He got into an argument with opnion (RIX) about that issue. At first CJ laid down the Obama defense, claiming that the Illinois act didn’t have the same language protecting abortion ‘rights’ as the federal one did. When RIX demolished that fiction, CJ said it didn’t matter and he would have voted the way Obama did.

        You know the drill. CJ bases his whole case on X. Someone proves X is false. CJ says X doesn’t matter and anyone who disagrees with him is a poo-poo head.

    • PeteP says:

      Exactly. It was so much better when he kept a low profile. Now he’s all over his own blog, bullying his readers while making sure they all conform to the group-think that he enforces. Why people continue to post there is beyond me.

  65. Village Idiot's Apprentice says:

    Whatever :
    Can Chuck do algebra?

    What’s he need Al-Gebra for?

    He has his life simplified down to division, addition, subtraction and multiplication.

    Examples:

    Purchase price of bag of Cheetos, divided by ounces gives best purchase price.

    *Goes and buys lots of Cheetos”s at best price*

    Add total bag purchases for month = monthly cash requirement

    Subscribers X $10.00 = monthly income

    Subtract income from Cheetos’s cost = how much to increase subscription cost

    PROFIT!!

    • grandjunctionite says:

      If Chuck cannot do algebra, he cannot calculate his carbon footprint. So, according to Lewdie, Chuck must die!!!

      Simple really. Algebra or death is the choice Lewdie has given us.

    Funny thing is, it was his being invisible that made him a great Jazz guitarist as well, as long as his claim to fame wasn’t his guitar playing itself, but who he played for he was famous for something. Had he ever recorded a CD of his own music he would have experienced the exact same fiery crash to earth his blog is experiencing because of his profound intellect.

    • garycooper says:

      I’m not an expert on jazz-fusion, which I hate, but I’ve listened to him play in the vids posted here and there. My impression was “bleah,” or maybe “meh.” Definitely not “Yeah!” 😉

    • Whatever says:

      That’s a metaphor for the early years of LFG, if you think about it. He ran a great blog, as long as he kept his mouth shut, and let people smarter than him make the profound comments. What he did in the past three years is analogous to kicking the jazz greats that he was playing with off the stage and inviting a bunch of high school kids to jam.
