Tech Note: PageViews R Jacked

I thought it might be a good time for a nice fresh open thread while CJ figures out what the heck is wrong with his page view counter, and decides whether to own up to it, thank us, or accuse us of lying again. (or maybe 2 out of 3, or none of the above). And I bet everyone is wondering just how inflated the counters for every thread have been since the system went live last September, so feel free to leave any guesses.

Also, I’m going to introduce a screencap for what might become part of a new series from The Boiler Room (called “Creepshow”, “Blog of the Living Creeps”, or something). In light of recent events, this one seems to be fairly appropriate as a start:

hmmm…that wouldn’t have had anything to do with, ya know…..nah.

    I HAVE NEVER GONE TO THE guardian! KKK T. was talking about me wasn’t he? No? OK. Never mind.
    Keep looking Chunk.

    how about 7 fold? thats my guess

    • Bagua says:

      What about the “statistics” in the side bar? Today shows “visits” at 74% of “page views”, but the page view are proven inflated and crucially, they are just refreshes.

      The real number of unique “visits” is likely less than 5% of the number shown under “statistics”.

      • Coldwarrior as Alcibiates says:

        whatever the factor is, its hysterical!

        boiler room crew forced him into re-coding. that is just insane right there.

      • Stillactive says:

        You forget? Chunk does not read DoD. (sometimes he “…am told.” and even if he did he would not do anything because of anything the Boiler Room Crew did.

  3. Coldwarrior as Alcibiates says:

    when is there going to be ‘boiler room crew’ merchandise on cafe press?

  4. Guggi says:

    Didn’t he claim recently that he doesn’t read “the stalkers blog”? How does he know about “the lying creep who claims to have an account at lgf” if he doesn’t read the blog?

    What you talking about? You can express your real opinion at LGF. … Once.

      Does a blog post exist if nobody sees it? Nyet. My comrade Charles has learned well.

    Foster has two feet and 10 socks for each one?

  7. song_and_dance_man says:

    I just noticed that all 10 of Foster’s hard core sycophants updinged his comment.

    Charles:

    Marjoriemoon, Stanley Sea, Windupbird, Alouette, LVQ, Jamesfirecat, Fozzie Bear, Philosophus Invidius, Mr. Pancakes, Wrenchwench, Locker, Obdicut, Researcok, SFZ, Reine, Lidane, et al.:

    “Wish we had a million updings, Charles!”

  10. BatGuano says:

    I have an account at LGF, but I am not subject to the jurisdiction thereof.

    Barney Frank :
    I wish we had ,dingers here.

    Marjoriemoon, Stanley Sea, Windupbird, Alouette, LVQ, Jamesfirecat, Fozzie Bear, Philosophus Invidius, Mr. Pancakes, Wrenchwench, Locker, Obdicut, Researcok, SFZ, Reine, Lidane, could come if Chunk would let them.

    General Chen,

    I never realized what a clever opponent I was always hammering over at your home blog, until I saw your menacing, pain-in-the-ass ways with Chunk Johnson.

    Personally, I think Chunk Johnson owes you a huge thank you. I mean the few times I’ve come over here, you’ve provided more traffic for the remnants of LGF than Chunk could possibly resurrect.

    The real irony is that if it weren’t for you and Gordon, two of Chunk’s biggest tormentors in a better day, he may have died two years ago.

    And you know that just burns his ass. 😈

    • Just callin as I see it, tex.

      Speaking of that, I see that the World’s Greatest Blog Search Engine™ has found that CJ has referred to folks as “creeps” about 200 times. It’s quite a distiguished list of folks, too. Amazing how so many people who were once sooper cool could morph into creeps. Not sure what to make of that. A virus, perhaps?

    • m says:

      Oh please. Gordon was a gnat on cj’s giant ass.

  14. Tex Taylor says:

    dg,

    shut ins, kids in basements and perverts surfing for free at the library : THAT’S YOUR NEW LIZARD ARMY

    😆

    Don’t you got to think there’s a few wannabee anarchists and pedophiles left in the group. I went over there a few weeks back and it appeared to me LGF had slid all the way to Gomorrah. I don’t think your list is inclusive or complete enough. 😉

  15. HiHo says:

    Ten updings for that?

    LOL!

  16. Konservo says:

    About the hit-counter. I read in an earlier post that it might depend on the browser one uses, so I switched from Firefox and went to LGF with Google Chrome. With Firefox, I haven’t noticed any weirdness. However, I have ad and pop-up blockers installed. With Chrome I do not have the ad and pop-up protection and when I went to an old LGF page I noticed that the counter would increase with those “behind the browser” ads. So, with Chrome at least, I did see the multiple hits per reload.

  17. GrandJunctionite says:

    Anybody else notice lots of new nics at the swamp today? I don’t notice any increase in comments. In fact they are slowing still. But upwards of 1/2 dozen new nicsa appear today.

    Makes me go Hmmmm

  18. Barrett Brown says:

    Just wanted to say goodbye to all you fine folks and to express my appreciation for the banter and rhetorical scrimmage sessions. Aside from the unusual position I have found myself in with regards to the ongoing events in North Africa and other such items of business, I have found that Charles has outsmarted me by having attracted a deranged commenter whom he apparently still converses with despite everything, and who is now clearly obsessed with me. I am too busy to deal with this nonsense anymore and thus it is that I now have to retire from my decade-long blog commenting hobby in favor of my new responsibilities. Incidentally, I have decided, in light of recent events, to deal with Charles in my own way.

    Good luck to all of you during these wacky, wacky times of ours.

    • song_and_dance_man says:

      And just how has Foster outsmarted you, and what does he have over you?

      Well, keep in touch and let us know how you are doing.

      Hey man, I emailed you.

    • Stillactive says:

      Carry on. Ta.Ta. Cheerio ‘old Chap. Stiff upper lip. Steady as she goes. Do drop us a line. Send us a post. Knock us up if you’re about. Hugs and kisses. Queen and country, and of course; Later Dude. We’ll watch for your spikey avatar and remember that to go in all directions at once is to go nowhere at all. Good night and good Luck.

      Looking forward to hearing about your next adventure. Give ’em hell, BB!

    • Charles wants a new gig says:

      So Reggie is stalking you now? Watch out for midnight visitors. Do anarchists own gunz?

      • snowcrash says:

        Reggie? I bet it is probably Killgore Trout stalking Barrett after he reported Browns activities to the Feds. Killgore does crap like that to protect his place at Charles’ side. He is coward and a snitch.

    • Speranza says:

      Good luck Barret and thanks for stopping by.

    • beeduwine says:

      Take care, man. And do visit us with a sock-puppet from time to time.

    • poteen says:

      FBI visit?

    • snowcrash says:

      Take good care of yourself but still have fun and don’t break too many laws. Drop in under an alias if you can, but don’t bring the Feds.

  20. Mandingo Warrior says:

    I thought I wold add that the definition of troll is doing something for no other reason than an emotional reaction. With no substance, cj is generating x9 hits to every thread stoking drama.

    Boycott him but tweet everything else. His site will be dealt the death knell without one person going to his site to hit a thread for 9 fucking views per page view. That’s fucking stupid, and sitemeter taes care of that without Cj’s stupid “I do my own page hits scam” counter.

    The fact that he doesn’t use anything traditionally measurable should be reason for pause.

    • Nesoi says:

      We might need tweet lessons.
      A request.

      • Mandingo Warrior says:

        DoD should fully explain this. They depend on providers to “provide” direction for product, but Chsck has been given the expert opinion. No more.

        We believe in our business, and partners.

  21. Briareus says:

    OT
    Wow. Just got done scrolling through the seekrit thread at 1.0. Appears CJ made it private so they could discuss RP. 90% of the rest was pure drivel. Reine thinks someone’s stalking her, CJ accused The Boiler Room Crew of lying, and Gas812 comes up with this pearl:

    haha totally

    No coincidence that one of the best voices of reason on that thread (electricworry) is a Clutch fan 😀

    Wingnuts are strange people. It’s not like it’s going to happen overnight. If any of them are 60 now and we’re look at a target year of 2035 they’re going to be 84 when that year comes. And you know how slow things like this are to change. I doubt they’ll be thinking about driving around some 1965 GTO when they’re that age — if they’re lucky to even make it that far considering all of the gin consumption.

  22. sacred ham says:

    I’ve never posted here before, but I’m the “sacredham” who commented about St. Pancake on the Guardian article, and used to be one of the regulars on LGF in its anti-jihadi era. The first time I heard that Charles was doing a Stalinist-style “cleansing” of his archives, I went and looked for my old posts, and they were still there. Then just recently I stumbled onto DoD, and after seeing the “memory hole” page, I went and searched again at LGF – now every single one of my comments is gone, along with any comments from BZ, TFK, AI, or other former regulars. So Charles went back through years of archives and deleted hundreds if not thousands of posts whose very existence was threatening to his new petulant-rage-against-the-right persona? Wow. As a friend of mind likes to say, “back away slowly.” Seriously folks, please be very careful in dealing with him, there’s some serious paranoid megalomania going on there.

    • Briareus says:

      There is very little he can do to us here that he and his minions haven’t already tried. We’re just here to have fun mocking him, exposing his lies with proof, and welcoming ex-lizards as yourself.

    • Briareus says:

      Hundreds? No. Thousands? Nu-unh. Tens of thousands. Nah. Keep guessing…

      • Iron Fist says:

        I had over 28,000 posts go down the Memory Hole. Buzzsawmonkey had a lot more thatn that. I’d say he’s deleted hundreds of thousands of posts when you take everyone who has been purged.

    • Nodrog says:

      http://lgfbannedandblocked.blogspot.com/2009/12/lgf-banned-blocked-and-obliterated_10.html

      Go to the link, and then on the site you will find four additional volumes of commenters with thousands, or tens of thousands, of LGF posts that were obliterated by the lizard tyrant his fits of rage.

    • sacred ham says:

      Sure enough, I just tried logging into LGF this morning, and after all these years, now my account is gone. No matter, since apparently there’s not much left of the archives to search, and it’s been years since I posted there, since nowadays anyone who’s not a tongue-on-sphincter sycophant gets banned in a hurry.

      The only question I have is whether Charles really believes that deranged evil stalkers are plotting against him (as opposed to just laughing at him), or if it’s just a tactic to bond his sycophants together against an imaginary enemy. Probably both.

      Oh well, we all have our memories of what LGF was and how much fun it used to be. That can’t be deleted. And Charles, you remember, too.

    All just a little game Charles and I have been playing … you have been taken down but don’t have the chutzpah to know it yet

    off to Ft Lauderdale now.

  25. Equable says:

    Dear lord, this situation is getting stranger and stranger by the moment. Charles and his pathological narcissism are blatant and right out there, but he continues to deny it. It reminds me of some little child with his fingers in his ears, eyes closed saying:

    “I can’t hear you, neener neener neener.”

    Amazing. And the lemmings just step in time, shaking their fists… Leni Riefenstahl would be ever so proud.

    A personal appeal to Loodie Q:

    We know that Shabbos comes early in this bleak time of the year, and also that you are extremely busy writing cosmoclasmic physics papers that bid fair to shake the very foundations of the earth, forcing the political climate deniers into an impasse where they can be herded into cages and tried for crimes against manatees.

    Still, could you please find time to share more of your prophetic wisdom with us, your most fervent admirers? The thought of having to go until perhaps Sunday or Monday without a fresh clutch of pearls before swine has me, personally, sweating with anxiety. I’m sure I’m not the only one here who feels this way.

    So come on, Lood. Feed the hungry.

    P.S. Some of my Yeshiva friends are concerned that you may be winding your phylacteries too tight. Please contact them to learn how it’s done right.

        FWIW, Rowan Atkinson has a master’s degree in electrical engineering. I’m sure if he sat down and discussed science with Ludwig, the conversation would be … interesting.

        Heh. The sight of Ludwig trying to match wits on any subject with an actual intellectual would be worth the price of a box seat at the Royal Shakespeare.
