CJ’s Moment To Own Up

Two days ago, we published the Boiler Room fact-check on the “errors” in LGF’s PageView counter system. Since then, we’ve been linked to by a few other blogs, but so far the Grand Lizardoid has been eerily silent on the issue. How come? 

Well, our friends on the inside discovered that Charles did in fact address it, but like the totally honest and straightforward dude we’ve come to know and mock, did so from the (presumed) safety of an unannounced [private] thread:

“Faked”? Yes, somehow, I was able to get that counter to jump up 13 spots in less than 40 sec. on an ad-infested LGF, by loading it from another browser, while talking and scrolling and clicking on the visible link at the same time.  I have toes, after all.  But which lizard should try it per CJ’s request?   Well, our old friend Gus 802 stepped up to the plate:

Gus even tweeted it!  And by the looks of it, he was angry:

Am I busted? Could a “used car salesman” have possibly pulled off such an elaborate hoax? 

 Well, the next day, CJ quietly went back to the private thread, and left this:

Aw shucks!  Soo…no fabrications.  No fraud.  No bullshit. …No faked video.  I guess they’ll have to wait a while longer to catch us makin’ something up  (like that line about I.E. usage, ’cause I’m curious what “almost nothing” means).

Anyway…there.  We owned up on CJ’s behalf.  Lizards, you’re welcome.

Oh, and lizards, one more thing; when we start pointing out that there may be other, um, “bugs”, try to be cool about it, OK?  You don’t want to make these smackdowns too easy for us, right?

Update:  I have aquired the screencap of the comment that CJ was responding to, from Claire:

Update: Kudos to Claire, BTW, ’cause the timestamp revealed that it wasn’t until the next day that someone decided to fact check and honestly report that CJ was mistaken.

Also, I’ve decided to include my 2nd video again, because I feel it better demonstratates how silly the notion is that I “faked” anything in the first place, and because it wasn’t added until later and I don’t know if everyone caught it:

    I sure hope this gets tweeted to Patterico.

  2. Voltaires Crack says:

    218822?

    Too funny.

    What’s the trick for that one, anyway?

  3. livefreeor die says:

    So when will Gus be apologizing for calling you a fabrication and a fraud? And why did CHarles have to own up to it on a Super Sekrit thread? Why not in public?

  4. Beeduwine says:

    Damn lies. Smears! They are reduced making shit up! Typical of the Reich Wing. Jim Dim Hoft! Pamela Geller! Creationists! Racists! Stalkers! Traffic is up, dammit… Oi, minor glitch is all.

    This pretty much sums him up, dontchathink?

  5. nil says:

    I guess they’ll have to wait a while longer to catch us makin’ something up (like that line about I.E. usage, ’cause I’m curious what “almost nothing” means).

    Well if 1 = 9 then 45% is “almost nothing”, that’s pretty simple algebra – right?

    Nice one CZ. If this were a prize fight they’d be talking about stopping it right about now, lol.

    • livefreeor die says:

      Wasn’t someone at LGF once saying that people who couldn’t do algebra shouldn’t vote? Now who was that….

  6. Voltaires Crack says:

    The ‘IE usage down to almost nothing’ is seed-planting to later come back and claim that his stats are 99% ok – make no mistake about it.

  7. Mark says:

    LGF’s PageView counter system- Fake but accurate.

  8. Beeduwine says:

    Should we tell WindUpBird that “banana123” is not an unbreakable password?

  9. Whatever says:

    So Chuck. Exactly how long has that bug been there? And have you ever heard the word “validation”?

  10. Voltaires Crack says:

    What was the info that Claire gave anyway? Can someone with an account grab the comment he was responding to?

  11. Beeduwine says:

    Are these the screen caps from Bolles?

  12. Voltaires Crack says:

    Notice the care which he gives to protect the page-counter code. It’s as if he’s saying ‘Sure my site is totally prone to spazzing out, but it’s all accounted for correctly’.

    Chen, you may have done a favor for regular lizards as I’d suspect the fix should result in some performance improvement. I’m sure Pus_802 will be tweeting a thank you message momentarily.

  13. Stillactive says:

    “Have I mentioned how much I hate IE? I’m glad to see that it’s use is dwindling to almost nothing these days.” So you haters can just leave Chunk alone. Almost nobody use IE now days so his counter numbers are correct (mostly). He could fix this totally by not letting anyone using IE register or sigh in but hey, he’s not a control freak. Fucking IE! You tell ‘em Chunk. Fucking Bugs! And you just better watch your back Claire. #218822! WHAT THE…WHAT’S THAT ALL ABOUT?

  14. livefreeor die says:

    I don’t see Luddy on the current LGF thread. Do you think he took Miss Ssss out for a “date”?

  15. Daedalus says:

    Mark :

    LGF’s PageView counter system- Fake but accurate.

    Ironies of history.

  16. Charles wants a new gig says:

    Just as Charles believes that playing hall monitor to a bunch of sad sacks on the web is a “job”, Ludwig obviously regards his unfunny jokes and “essays” inspired by ecofascist hysteria and Stalinist wet dreams a “calling” – and himself as the brave prophet speaking truth to power and quoting Matthew to the Sadducees. Sad little men applauded by sad, menopausal pearl-clutchers and furries with no lives and so little courage that none dare snicker at the barenaked emperor and his penguin.

    But neither of them will ever admit to being wrong about anything. They’ll just keep fapping on and on about AGW and how Loony Loughner was programmed to kill by Roger Ailes at a Fox News picnic. In person. While Megyn the Gutterslut sniggered racistly at Lewd’s little hard-on, and Glenn Beck forced Charles to eat plate after plate of boiled frogs carbonara.

  17. Saul Gursky says:

    It is not just your disdain for Ludwig that made me come to the conclusion that this site and quite a few of the posters are virulently anti semitic.

    If you don’t believe me, please ask David Frum, one of your earlier victims.

  18. Saul Gursky says:

    Why is everyone here so hostile, I asked a civil question. Now I understand why there has been some concern raised among the Jewish Community about this site.

    Am I being treated this way because I am a Jew?

    • livefreeor die says:

      Luddy, if Charles know you’re over here posting, you’re going to get another time out.

    • Saul Gursky says:

      Did you support Mrs. Palin’s explanation of blood libel?

      Don’t you think it was offensive to a majority of the Jewish community?

      • Beeduwine says:

        Racist. Go away.

      • Nesoi says:

        Didn’t you debate that with Buck this morning on LGF?

      • Bagua says:

        This isn’t a political blog, that isn’t the topic, and claiming you know what is offensive to “a majority of the Jewish community” is an assertion worthy of scorn.

      • Whatever says:

        Go the hell, Reggie.

      • Danrudy says:

        Oh bullshit. I have three kids in orthodox day school although I am not as observant as I was growing up. To call the good people of the blogmocracy anti semetic is downright nonsense. Please do not speak for me. And btw…no Jew with half a brain thought anything wrong with Palin’s blood libel comment. She used it correctly. It no longer simply refers to the libels of hundreds of years ago and is a politically functional term. So says, the liberal Alan Dershowitz and the chasidic Shmuley Boteach. It is a nonsense argument brought up by the liberals and the msm to distract from what she was saying.

      • Stillactive says:

        Whatever.
        Kind of what I thought only I thought Poodle Perrin is channeling Lewdie. And Reggie, before you leave again can I get my Babel fish back?

    • Bagua says:

      No, because you are making false accusations. Lots of Jews here at this site and 2.0 are strong supporters of Israel and the Jewish people.

      I’ve never seen a trace of anti-semitism. So your allegation is outrageous and correctly being mocked.

      You are so off base playing your martyr card it is hilarious.

    • Charles wants a new gig says:

      No, troll. You’re being mocked on a mockery site for being a mockup.

      • Saul Gursky says:

        I see, chasing off the Jew.

        I see this is going to go nowhere, tonight I learned it was true, they never allow outsiders to debate.

        Why are you so afraid to debate Ludwig on the issue of climate change? Is it because you know that a scientist would clean your clock

      • Voltaires Crack says:

        Ludwig is welcome to come here and debate AGW anytime, as far as I know.

        Why don’t you invite him down.

      • Whatever says:

        If you’re a Jew, I’m a freeking ballerina, Reggie.

      • Charles wants a new gig says:

        It’s Lood who’s afraid to debate, Saul. He plays the big science fish in a very small pond that bans anyone who isn’t a true believer in whatever the owner pretends to believe this week. He’s welcome to come here and try it on.

    • The Osprey says:

      No, you are being treated this way because you’re a schmuck!

    • HolyRomanStuff says:

      Well, yes, of course you were simply asking a civil question: “Why are you such a raging antisemite?” One often starts off a civil, informed dialog in such a manner. Louts that most of us are, we assume those are fighting words.

      Please, allow me to retort, Reginald: “Why do you act like a mental patient in an asylum that has run out of money to pay for meds?” Now, let’s discuss.

    • snowcrash says:

      Shut up, your constant complaints are boring. Religion has nothing to do with it.

    re: #22 Buck

    I would like to suggest a new TAG. In addition to the /SARC tag… a /NEWTONE tag.

    I am not responding to the hate rhetoric that is addressed simply to the Right, but I really think it is uncalled for, and is only gasoline for a destructive fire, and not light to show anything.

    And the kneejerk defense of the indefensible comes from Buck right on time and without fail. You are fortunate I missed you defending Palin’s Blood Libel crap. You sick bastards are ruining my nation. It is assholes like you who enable it and are too blind, arrogant and stupid to see it.

  21. Beeduwine says:

    Just delete that shit. He is trying to wreck the thread with accusations because he knows lots of people will be coming over to read about the Adventures of Charles, and he is trying to protect Dear Leader with spam to make it look like a suspicious site.

    So just so we’re clear your issue is with tone, or are their any facts you’d like to dispute?

    Seriously James… reread the posts I am talking about. They are one degree separated from a lot of Reginald Perrine posts. This person is not disputing facts, he is just unloading bile.

    Spot on Buck.

  26. Saul Gursky says:

    I have nothing to do with Charles or LGF. I found this site through a link at a progressive site a couple weeks ago. I came to the conclusion that you were antisemitic, about a week after I started to read old threads.

    You may be hearing from some of my friends soon, people who preach hate and genocide are not to be ignored.
    Sunshine is a good disinfectant.
    This type of hate you are preaching on your two websites is going to cause you heartache if you don’t tone down the violent rhetoric.

    Hahaha… “chasing off the Jew?” What a fraud you are. Trying to invent a smear.

    Ludnut is welcome to debate here anytime, he is afraid to do so because:

    1. He doesn’t know science, he cuts and pastes and resorts to insults when challenged on scientific facts.

    2. He is afraid to post here under his LGF nic, despite it being anonymous. He needs permission from CJ. How sad is that?

      Did anyone actually read all of the words in my previous post? I mentioned about reading a lot of old threads. Did it ever occur to you that those threads were about Jews being harassed, Ludwig among them?
      That is how I know so much about Ludwig’s and your feud. So wouldn’t be logical to actually visit LGF and read the threads and Ludwig’s comments in their full context?

    Pft. IE was and is the easiest browser to rig for CSS/Ajax exploits because of the way it handles them(by not following the HTML/CSS standard), which means you can tell IE to reload a page random numbers of times based on an random integer in a hidden 1×1 frame. Browsers that follow the HTML and CSS standards won’t allow this.

    Saul Gursky,

    Here is a fair deal. You go get Luddwig and have him join to post on http://www.wattsupwiththat.com blog. A site not into all this back and fourth that has gone on between lgf’s and here and blogmogracy. We can all not join in and allow Ludwigg to prove himself up in the open with that blog. Fair enough?

  58. Whatever says:

    It’s the Reggie template: “debate me, debate Ludwig”.

    Annoying little detail: you can’t debate anyone over at the dump, because Chuck keeps an iron curtain around the place.

    • Bagua says:

      How do you debate someone whose idea of a challenge on a point of science is to say: “You are scum?”

      Ludwig has never shown the ability or knowledge necessary to debate anyone on an educated level. It is all cut and paste, hysterical exaggerations and falsehoods, and then insults when challenged.

  59. freetaxeskill says:

    tset

  60. freetaxeskill says:

    Gursky,

    How about a fair deal. You go back to lgf’s land and have Ludwigged to go and sign up with Anthony Watts blog. He can show us all how good he is by debateing there in the open. We here and the lgf’s poster can all stay out of it and we will all see in the clear how well Luddwig does.

    Fair deal

    It’s not a bug, it’s a feature.

    It’s a feature of a javascript code.

    Hmmmm. So if charles is a master code programmer and java master… and a bit of code somehow is jacking up his page views(only on explorer8)…Bit of a coincidence, isn’t it?

    That bit of code no doubt EVOLVED without any outside intentional tampering.
    Any other theory is just absolute wishful nonsense.
    No programmer wrote that lucky bit of revenue enhancement; it just happened.

    You haven’t got a prayer of convincing them otherwise. They have faith in charles.

    Interesting to watch another of Charlie’s inner circle of worshipers, his Praetorian Guard if you will, lose his place in the puddle and go spiraling off into the cosmos of madness.
    If you look at them through the last 2 years, the similarities are striking.
    Sharmuta, Irish Rose, Reggie and how many others, whether they flounced, were blocked or just disappeared, no matter how afraid they were to speak their true opinions, could not let go of their devotion to Charlie.

    /—(Here comes Godwin)—/

    Analogous to the end of the Nazis. Those in Hitler’s high command with intelligence or a conscience fled or spoke up and were executed.
    Others, retreated to the bunker, lamented the ‘betrayals’ of others, and died with their beloved fuhrer.

    Just an observation.

    Reggie really thinks that by fighting us Chuck will take him back. CJ said he wants nothing to do with him.

      Exactly. He attacked Barrett for the same reason. Reggie is a very disturbed person.

    • HolyRomanStuff says:

      Reggie is going to have a hard time letting go of the cult. His self identity seemed pretty wrapped up not only in the group, but also, strangely, with Charles himself. He seemed to believe, near the end, that he had some type of ownership stake in the place.

      Even now, my guess is that he has spun some type of scenario in his head in which his very public expulsion was done in order for him to infiltrate and disrupt the “stalker” blogs, putting an end, once and for all, to Johnsons’s enemies. He will, of course, then return to LGF on a chariot of gold, laurel in his hair, to the cheering throngs.

      • Stillactive says:

        I know what it is. There are 25,843 sock puppets that checked in to see what was going on. That’s far more likely to be the case than to think that Chunk would be fudging the numbers.

      Perfectly logical explanation coming from Chunk in 1,000,000; 999,999; 999,998…

    Like it or not, IE has been holding steady at about 55-58% of users for the past several years, according to several recent studies. Microsoft has a way of “gettin’ it in,” that a repressed, hysterical virgin like Lewd-Thing would do very well to study as if it’s the revealed word of the one true Pussy G-d. 😉

    “short while” is just like “almost nothing”…yes?

  76. garycooper says:

    Reggie responded to Lewd-Thing’s desperate plea for a roommate, I understand. It was fine for a couple of days, as they went over their plans for bringing down the stalker-wingnuts with science and algebra, but then it got weird when Lewdy walked in on Reggie in his bedroom, wearing only a pink-leopard-print thong, with several of Lewdy’s coordinated-outfits spread out on the bed before him.

    “HE-E-EY! Umm…yeah, I’m just trying on your shirt. Yeah sorry I was just tryyying it out…don’t worry. Oh btw I just got this new tattoo of your face on my thigh. We’re BFF’s now, right? That’s what best friends do, where I come from…”

    What is significant about this thread is it seems as if Claire is the only poster at Little Green Footballs that actually has a pair of balls! This world needs more women like her… (looking at Ludwig)

    She didn’t follow the crowd and she actually fact checked the problem herself and had the guts to let Charles know he was wrong.

    Notice the attitude of Gus 802? We are frauds. He used words like Chenshit. Well Gus, don’t you feel like an idiot now?

    Charles was wrong, Gus was wrong. A problem was highlighted at LGF and all the ranting mob could do was hurl insults and accusations. They say the first line of defense is attack, and Charles certainly proved that theory to be a crock of shit.

    Nice work Chen. How many times have you proved Charles Johnson is, and I will use Gus 802’s term, Charles Johnson is a fraud.

    Kudos to Claire for not only pointing out that the Emperor has no clothes, she pointed out that he is stark naked, dishonest, fraudulent and a world class freakozoid nut sandwich. (whatever that means)

    As a footnote, I nominate Claire for the Diary of Daedalus Anti-Idiotarian award for 2011.

    Thank you……

    • Definitely deserving. Hard to believe that no one across 300+ comments on a private thread had IE, and took the 2 min. to check. Then again, participation is dwindling.

      Claire for anti-Idiotarianismishness. I’m markin it down.

      • dwells38 says:

        Is it any surprise too that the “defect” was in the comments which is primarily where his readers dwell? I wonder too if it jumps with the auto-refresh that he has setup? Of course you have to be logged in to check that.

    I have been saying for years that LGF has been faking traffic counts. It just isn’t that hard to do.

  79. pat says:

    And let me add that the entire gang at Death By 1000 Papercuts believes the same thing. The number of commentators is totally disproportionate to traffic figures for a chat blog as opposed to a posting blog. I mean TOTALLY. And I think everyone in the business knows it.

    And if it turns out it was faked I’ll be featured on the stalker site for being gullible enough to accept it on face value. Meanwhile, all I was doing was just shooting the breeze by posting an image I saw on Daylife. But, you know how “they” get sometimes. That little innocent post of mine will turn into some kind of attempt of mine to promote “Al Reuters” propaganda putting me in the side of the Muslim Brotherhood!!11ty

    No Gus, you won’t be “featured on the stalker site for being gullible enough to accept it on face value.” What you will be featured here for is jumping to insane conclusions and believing instantly everything Charles “The Fraud” Johnson posts.

    That is the difference Gus.

    Asslickers like you get featured here. Regular LGF posters do not unless they make an outstanding contribution to the general lulz here.. (I can’t believe I said that… lulz?)

    😉

  82. One more impression you get from the timestamps and the comment #s is that CJ, at some point (perhaps sooner than later), knew that he was wrong, but was waiting to see if someone was brave enough to point it out. In a private thread, remember.

    What is the point of those sekrit threads, anyway?

    • Internet Septic Tank Engineer says:

      The point of the secret threads is to thwart the merry band of Mockrateers. I just hate it when they say something funny and I can’t share the joke. It drives me nuts.

      Oh, and just for casual information. It is not ONLY the private lounge threads that are secret. Charles has also retroactively made threads private. Usually due to Iceweasel and Jimmah ripping on someone. He locks the comments and privates them.
