LGF Banned List Update: Lizard Genocide

Background

I know it goes without saying around here, but in case we get some visitors who are unfamiliar, we should note that, for quite some time, Charles Johnson has had a growing reputation of cold indifference and (oftentimes) bizarre reactions towards the commenters who frequent his Little Green Footballs website. In fact, a couple of years ago, even the NYT took notice, as author Jonathan Dee states (emphasis mine):

THE QUESTIONING OF Johnson’s tactics started to come not just from without L.G.F. but also from within. Readers both casual and loyal spoke up in the comment threads to ask, sometimes diplomatically and sometimes not, whether all this casual flinging of epithets like “fascist” wasn’t maybe an overreaction. Johnson’s response, in thousands of cases, was to block their accounts and ban some of them from viewing the blog. “Get off my Web site” was a common farewell. (Johnson insists that this is not true — that no one has ever been banned from L.G.F. merely for disagreeing with him — but the anecdotal evidence to the contrary is voluminous, and the fact that the offending comments were instantly and permanently deleted makes it impossible to check others’ records against his.)

The total number and identities of banned members aren’t statistics that are compiled for viewing on Charles’ site, but in recent years the subject has generated a substantial amount of curiosity.  There were certainly enough lizards outcast to sustain several spin-off websites, but it was pretty difficult to get a hard estimate on just how many. Back in 2009, ex-LGFer Kirly used her blog to start a list of exiled members called “The Book of the Banned“. The list grew as netizens stopped by to report the tales of their banishment, and their handles were added accordingly. Over time, she compiled well over a thousand usernames, but eventually, Kirly grew tired of continuously updating the page, and at about the same time that our DoD website got up and running, the updates had ceased.

Kirls’ “Book of the Banned”

The end of Kirly’s updates didn’t mark the end of the bannings (of course), so a year ago, we decided to take the torch and compile a list of our own. We were impressed with Kirly’s work, but we figured that there could be a more efficient and independently verifiable method of compiling a list. Engineer No. 2 took it upon himself to use the information we’d gathered about the LGF archives and known usernames, grabbed a sockpuppet account, and started checking account statuses. In the end, he compiled a list of 4,252 names that he confirmed as blocked, and put them into a spreadsheet along with their stats gleaned from their profile pages (we’ve kept it under the “Get off my Website” page in the banner; last updated 3/15/11). It’s been a year, and since we’ve been receiving hints that it was deserving an update, and since we still have that open question to Johnson sitting out there unanswered, we thought it might be a good time to dive back in and see what we can find…

Methodology

In order to do this, one basically needs a healthy LGF account (to view statuses on user profile pages), and a comprehensive list of known usernames. The former has been relatively easy to get these days, and the latter can be gleaned from user comments (and mentions) in the archives. The info for each account is there for the grabbing. The real trick is figuring out a way to gather it efficiently and put it all together while remaining under Johnson’s radar.

Example of a “blocked” LGF user profile.

 

Now, when we previously sifted through it, the archives gave Engineer no. 2 a little over 20K individual usernames to check. This time around, we turned to Engineer no. 5. He was able to find a few more, and then sent our sockpuppet account (henceforth affectionately referred to as “Patches”) into the Lizard Kingdom to confirm the status on a total of 22,422 known LGF usernames (we should remind everyone that the total registered accounts on the site was ~35,600 as of a month or so ago, which means there are ~13,000 unknown usernames out there. These accounts either haven’t ever commented, or we’ve missed their mention by another lizard).

Make sense?

Results

So, “Patches” got busy…very busy. It’s hard to imagine how this brave sockpuppet was able to peek at the statuses of 22,422 user accounts without dying of exhaustion, but when it did, it reported back to Engineer no. 5 with all the individual stats for comments, links, karma, registration dates, as well as a tally of 6642 active accounts, and 15,780 blocked accounts.

Yep, you read that right. There are at least…

15,780 BLOCKED ACCOUNTS ON LGF

Here is the new, updated list:

MasterBlockedList 3-13-12 (xlsx spreadsheet)

I have to admit that, when first presented with that number, my first reaction was to insist that we make sure that there wasn’t a flaw in our methods. I mean, even for the ban-happy Johnson, such a large number almost seemed absurd. After days of double-checking, however, the results were the same.

Analysis

Considering that the sample of known accounts was largely the same as what we took a year ago, we had the inkling that what we had stumbled upon here was evidence of a major policy shift on Charles’ part, and of course we were inclined to dig a little further. First, we wanted to determine how many of the accounts we could confirm were banned in the past year (in other words, those now banned were confirmed as “active” a year ago). From Engineer no 5:

There are now 15,780 confirmed blocked accounts.  No 2’s last spreadsheet showed 4,252,  i.e. 11,528 more blocked accounts than we knew of 1 year ago.   However, my data includes 2100 accounts that No. 2 never statused, and 1074 of those are blocked (but we don’t know when).   So we can safely say that that CJ pressed the block button at least 11,528-1074=10,454 times since 15 Mar 2011.

We’ll return to that 10,454 number in a minute, but next we wanted to try to wrap our minds around the rationale here. We couldn’t imagine that over 10K usernames had even been active in the last year, or had otherwise done something to warrant a banishment. Indeed, what we found is that a great number of these newly banned folks hadn’t commented in quite a while:

So, we can confirm that Johnson has been banning thousands of folks based on something other than anything they’ve posted on his website. This was beginning to point toward some sort of “cleansing” of dormant accounts or “lurkers” in CJ’s account database, whereas he was intentionally blocking nics that hadn’t commented in a certain amount of time. We were beginning to envision an extinction event, where thousands of lizards cried out in a last gasp as they died by the motion of a single mouse click. Assuming that most of these weren’t case-by-case, what were Johnson’s parameters? And do we dare speculate…why?

Well, as we looked at our data further, we discover that, contrary to the “dormant lizard” theory, we find that 75% of the unblocked accounts haven’t commented on the site since 2006:

Looking at both of those, we start to ponder if we’re looking for a combination of factors. It could be that CJ was targeting dormant posters from certain eras of LGF history. So, we decided to look at the data another way, comparing our 2011 list with the new one, and factoring in the registration dates for the entire sample. What we found was very interesting (wait for the throb):

As you can see, lizards of all ages got banned in large numbers, but the lizards registered from ’07-’09 were hit extremely hard, to the point that the “class of 2008” appears to be virtually extinct. Still, this isn’t conclusive, and it is possible that the mass banning had other factors (like number of comments, for example). The answer might be in the data somewhere, so we’ll continue to poke at it a bit, and provide an update if/when we find something.

Ok…back to that 10,454 number. As in, we confirm that Johnson has banned at least 10,454 accounts in the last 12 months. It’s a staggering number, equivalent to 28.7 accounts per day. More than one per hour.

It also brings up another interesting point of comparison. Remember our big thread about LGF’s declining registration levels? A year ago, on 3/15/11, lizard “RanchTooth” registered, becoming LGF account #35,043. Two days ago, we registered a sock account “127 Bart Ave”, which was #35,621. See where we’re going with this? In 12 months, Charles has banned at least 10,454 accounts, while gaining only 579. It’s a ratio of roughly 18:1. And assuming that the bulk of the ~13,000 unknown usernames are also blocked, it means that, if the pace kept up, Johnson would find himself completely out of commenters by this time next year.

As a corollary, we can return to the open question of “banning level” (referring to the comment CJ made back in ’07, the sole time he revealed how many accounts were banned). In that comment, he miscalculated and said that 0.02% of the total accounts were blocked (381/~15,000 = 2%, actually). With our update, we can state that this level is now at least (15,780/35,621 = 44.3%). The fate of over 1/3 of the accounts are unknown, but with what we know now, I think we can speculate that the real number is much higher (the “banning level” of known accounts is 15,780/22,422 = 70.4%, which is probably a more meaningful number anyway).

Finally, one last way to look at this is from the perspective of the millions of comments in the archives that span a decade, and their authors. There are now so many people banned at the site that we’ve crossed a sort of grim threshold. If you were to randomly pull up any of the 9.5 million comments in the archives, chances are that the author of that comment is now blocked.  Or if you compare it to last year’s figures:

If there were bragging rights for this sort of thing, Johnson would undoubtedly be the undisputed champion. A league of his own. It’s really pretty mind-boggling, and hard to imagine what kind of a logical explanation one might come up with for it.

Conclusion

I think Jonathan Dee would be pretty interested to see where Johnson has gone since the aforementioned article he wrote on him two years ago. It’s obviously gone beyond being banned for disruptions, hate speech, calls for violence, or petty disagreements. Charles appears to have unconditionally taken out the bulk of his active accounts, without any explanation. I don’t know if we’ll ever be able to determine with certainty if this was done in one swoop, or one at a time (the sheer numbers involved seems to necessitate an emphasis on the former, but who knows), but we’ll keep working on the data to learn more and see if there was more of a common association within the banned.

Regardless, the overriding question again is…why?

It’s hard to believe that Johnson would try to explain it away with some convoluted excuse about the threat of “spambots”, but he might. Engineer no. 5 speculates that “Somehow CJ uncovered the thousands of sleeper agents planted years ago by racist homophobes and dispatched them with ruthless efficiency“. Heh. Possibly.

My theory? Frustrated by years of getting pwned by current and former lizards to the point of rampant paranoia over the intent of all his account holders, Johnson decides to nuke his own blog with mass indiscriminate bannings. Unfortunately for Mr. @lizardoid, our revelation is just another pwnage to add to the list. (To add insult to injury, he never did catch “Patches”!)

    To ban or not to ban? That is the question.

    Aww, fukit. Adieu.

  2. Voltaire's Crack says:

    Epic.

  3. Bagua says:

    Gosh, the sinister Bagua made it to “example” status.

    Must rush to update me resume!

    🙂

    • Here’s another example:

      • Bagua says:

        Yikes!

        I miss Sharmuta. 😦

        Interesting that she registered just about 4 months before me. Though I didn’t post much until later.

      • Claytonia Sibirica says:

        I always wanted to know the real story with Sharmuta, all kinds of ugly things were said at the time.

        Weird, ugly things.

      • P. Ness Lowell says:

        The Sharmuta facts are pretty clear: she disappeared from the comments within hours of the Dee piece. Speculation is that it was because of the “un-Mata Hari”. But regardless, the connection to the Dee piece is pretty clear.

      • Bagua says:

        She was badly treated.

      • P. Ness Lowell says:

        Fuck you, I thought you were dead.

      • Voltaire's Crack says:

        Quite a bit of bad blood between her and Iceweasel and her towards the end. Appeared to be a lot of offline correspondence that would get brought up. Somewhere along the line Jimmah/Iceweasel had a lot to say (not nice) about the fact that other lizard’s helped out Sharmuta in the past.

      • The Osprey says:

        I thought Sharmuta was there much earlier than 2007…or was it under a different NIC?

      • Lily says:

        WoW ! I thought Sharmuta just left..apparently not.

      • Bagua says:

        Yup, the iceweasel/Jimmah made friends before they turned their knives on Sharmuta.

        This pattern was repeated several times, but was especially intense with Sharmuta including off-blog communications.

        A lot of the Dexter episodes have him making friends with, and winning the confidence of those he later chopped up on his table.

        Typical trait for sociopaths.

      • Emperor says:

        As far as I was aware, Sharmuta left of her own accord….. It was immediately after the NYT article. As the Weasel put it, she went on a “spiritual journey”

        (spiritual journey to the Lizard firing squad, it seems)

        I would guess that Sharmuta was banned recently. I definitely don’t think she was banned right after leaving.

      • snowcrash says:

        She didn’t deserve the treatment she got. Charles allowed it, just as he is letting his ankle biters snipe Kilgore Trout. They set the temper trap. Funny to watch.

      • P. Ness Lowell says:

        This suggests, as many suspect, that the weasel has the second key to the galley. Sure looks that way to me.

      • garycooper says:

        I’m sorry, Charles.

      • dwells38 says:

        Let’s face it she was weird and sycophantic and sad. I don’t know what her deal was but by the time I was around you couldn’t even engage her in causal conversations. It seemed like she wasn’t allowed that or didn’t allow herself that without Charles’ approval. That turned me off and started my suspicions it isn’t a healthy community.

  4. The Osprey says:

    ” “Get off my Web site” was a common farewell. “

    Followed closely by the ever popular “I bid you adieu!”

  5. Arachne says:

    So much to absorb. This will need further study and perhaps two glasses of wine.
    Fantastic job, guys. Shitload of envy over here.

    Uh, isn’t that more properly a “grim milestone” in Bush era MSM-Speak?

    Shock And Awe!

    15,780 Blocked accounts On LGF

    WTF!

  11. Bagua says:

    So, about 1,000 banned for each active poster who remains.

    The Few, The Cowed, The Lizards.

  12. I left out of boredom long before I got banned.

    • P. Ness Lowell says:

      Me too. The CrEaTiOnIsTs!!!1111 shiite was getting annoying beyond words.

    • m says:

      Yep, that’s why I left. I didn’t get banned until I went back a year later and told him he’d lost his fucking mind. I just had to get it on record.

  13. Pakimon says:

    Speaking of Clarence Carter, Here’s an ode to Chunky and his stroking with his mighty BanStick.

  14. MrPaulRevere says:

    Logistically speaking, just think of the time involved in banning all of those accounts. I can only guess as to the raw number of hours. Close to 100 I’d gather.

  15. It makes me feel small… I’m just one little ex-Lizard among the masses. Charles kind of reminds me of Pol Pot or Mao and his cultural revolution. LGF is certainly an intellectual wasteland now.

  16. P. Ness Lowell says:

    So. Is Ludwig’s account still in good standing?

  19. Crap… Microsoft Windows update downloading now… will probably have to reboot. Don’t think they really update anything. I think it’s an excuse to make you reboot your computer so Windows can clean out all the crap it leaves orphaned in memory. Microsoft has NEVER been able to figure out how to keep memory “clean” enough so it doesn’t butt up against itself.

    And why so many update? To keep patching the bugs in their shitty-assed operating system?

    • bumr50 says:

      It’s a MS thing.

      My 360 is even worse, because it takes forever to download the updates, sometimes twice a week, and usually when I want to kill 15-30 minutes playing a quick game of NHL 12.

      • P. Ness Lowell says:

        I don’t do updates if I don’t have to. I was using Thunderbird for email until it automatically updated itself. Now the damn thing uses 100% CPU cycles (and I mean 100%). All my old email is stranded. Jerks.

    Sharmuta was there way before you under other names. In fact she would use a couple of her nic’s and talk to her self in the threads even to the point of updinging her own comments.

    Chuck E. Cheetoh’s banned the equivalent of the entire Chuck E. Cheese workforce.

  36. haysoos says:

    for the record….
    Sharmuta was a very sweet, sensitive, bright woman….just a joy to post with….she was very gentile natured, a devout Catholic and one hell of a nice person….anybody that says otherwise is either ignorant or a liar

    • m says:

      She wasn’t Catholic.

    • P. Ness Lowell says:

      You never saw her on a bad hair day.

    • Formercorpsman says:

      I say otherwise.

      First, I never really got involved with getting to know people off of the site. But when Charles decided he was going to purge his site of long time posters, she was absolutely involved with the dogpile. She would participate totally in the set up.

      She went out of her way to malign solid, long time posters who never did a damn thing to her, for whatever she thought it would get her in the hierarchy of the site. I know there are others out there who feel the same way I do, perhaps they won’t say it, but good Lord the whole slobbery over Charles just took the place down so many levels from what it had been. Add to that, her chronic bellyaching “what about me?” when she tried to join the chorus of how bad the Republicans were.

      For crying out loud, it was like watching hormonal teen just run rampant in the house.

      • Formercorpsman says:

        That being said, if for some reason she had issues that folks contribute her actions towards that, fine.

        If she is in a better place now, good for her. I say that without any malice.

    There was one Sharmuta was and that was very loyal to lgf and cj.

    • m says:

      Ain’t that the truth? I became a non-person when I made a comment on fallback lgf that people were kissing his ass too much, or some such.

    • m says:

      She was a personal friend of mine as well even if we never met in person. I spent hours upon hours on the phone with her.

      If she discovered Catholicism after, God bless her. But she treated her friends like shit for the love of a blog owner across the country.

      To each their own I guess.

      • Bagua says:

        She was under a malign influence at the time and has since moved on in a positive manner.

        Charles and LGF resulted in many variations of co-dependency, cultish behaviour and group think.

        Some of those who fell sway are more famous than others, but there are many examples.

        LGF brought out the nasty in most everyone who posted there at some point. We are all human.*

        With some exceptions, such as marsupials and felines.

    Everyone was very loyal to LGF at one time until what “changed” was that Chunky became a backstabbing P.O.S.

      Seriously? Sore loser? Dude you weren’t even around then. “Sharmuta” was the mutant. You probably believed that whole “this is why i changed my nic” schtick too huh?? I’ll keep my mouth shut out of respect for Chen but you have no idea what you are talking about.

      W-Lover, Dubs, Dubluv were all great peeps. Fun, witty, a little crazy but we all accepted it.

      There isn’t any reason to get snippy with me because I learned my lesson the hard way.

    • Daedalus says:

      Sharmuta backstabbed a few people. She’s not this innocent creature you make her out to be.

    • jd says:

      Sharmuta was ok. She did some research. She would talk logic. She tilted a little when she let an emotional attachment to someone elses Johnson color her perception of other bloggers. I talked to her on and off via the blog for a few years, then stopped completely when her response became skewed and overly assertive.

      I would assume that like most departing lizaroids that she got mentally healthier once she dropped the burden of LGFspeak from her thought patterns.

    Interesting. Back when I was posting here about a year ago, my LGF account, which I hadn’t used in years, stayed active, all through the Twitter battle as Chuckles3000, etc., even though my LGF user name could be fairly easily guessed from my name here. I hadn’t tried to log in there in a long time, but sure enough, now my account is blocked. I guess he got bored with filling bottles and scanning his comic books and made a project of banning inactive accounts? Very impressive, Chuck, very impressive.

    • garycooper says:

      I had my detractors once upon a time, at LGF. I was into pushing people’s buttons for fun on the internet, at the time. It was a bad habit I picked up in the then-bare-knuckle world of NHL hockey forums, where I was also infamous for a time under my Red Wings-derived name of “Octopus.” People at LGF were calling me “Inky” behind my back, Rightymouse revealed to me the other day…probably other racist names, as well. I forced Chunky to ban me, after he warned me to stop fighting with the other kids, and I pointedly ignored him. Then he lied, and said I threatened him by email. He was already a lying POS, in 2005!

      I never really knew Sharmuta, as my second go-round with LGF as Garycooper was short and sweet. As soon as I realized Chunky and his boy Ludwig (I mean, the great man and eminent scientist Ludwig) were obsessed with promoting the horrors of AGW, I knew my days were numbered. I tried to be polite about it, but eventually I was braced by Luds one afternoon, badgered into an exchange of insults, and then he told me, “Say one more thing…I dare you!” I couldn’t resist, and found myself banned and blocked instantly. Thus, I was convinced that Ludwig himself banned me. Now, it seems like he might have been communicating with Chunky during the incident, and they were giggling together like two little schoolgirls, knowing they were about to drop the hammer. How hilarious, in retrospect. 😆

      Hearty agreement with you there. That tiny little screen can be as addicting as heroin for some people. As evidenced by the differing perceptions above. Loving or hating anyone for what gets typed anonymously into a computer isn’t rational.

    If you look at the file, you’ll see that there’s a 1000/1000 club. That is, there are roughly 1000 blocked nics that have contributed 1000 or more comments to the archives. I’m in there at like #721.

    Claytonia Sibirica :

    which concept still annoys me, because she accomplished nothing at all there except for lasting.

    She was a loyal Uncle Tom Liberal when it was a right-leaning blog, so I guess that gets props now.

    She help make it a Leftist blog. Charles brought her aboard to give him muscle for his shift to the Left.

    • Claytonia Sibirica says:

      that’s my whole thing, she didn’t really.

      All she did was play the good liberal to make the blog look evenhanded when it leaned right, she certainly didn’t make meaningful waves or stand up to people. She just played ‘internet chick’ and sucked up all the attention women tend to get on the ‘web. Then when the tide was turning and the blog was changing, THEN she decided to speak up and start really getting in peoples faces.

      (although I suppose playing snitch is some influence, I’ll grant you that)

      • Daedalus says:

        She only appeared a few months before LGF went Leftist. It was a plan. Charles brought her to get into fights with people he want banned. She would victim and he would ban her opponent. Bagua has the background story on the failed Porn actress.

        I always suspected Charles was not on the Right. I felt he was a Lefty pretending to be a Right for blog traffic. There was something fake about Charles.

      • Claytonia Sibirica says:

        I think you’re mistaken about that, though (about J that is), he just got his mind seriously twisted around from its normal position by 9/11.

        What you’re seeing now is closer to what he really thinks than in the old days.

        Less scheming more hysterical and easily swayed.

        ~

        About Ice I don’t know the exact timing, it depends on when you count it as going left. The thing I always noticed is she only really started speaking up and making serious waves after other people had proved it was ‘safe’.

        PS: A plan? You think he some how knew her and brought her in as some kind of blog assassin? Too much credit being given there :p

    • jd says:

      If you were to read a year before the turn you would read KT lamenting some of his close friends on the blog were destined to move on. Foreshadowing of the grapevine between him and Charles and a few others. It was pre meditated.

      You would also read that Charles didn’t care if 95 percent of the people left his blog as long as he retained his fascist morals.

      Then you could watch posters get focused on and held to Animal Farm standards. Any person who wanted to think well and grow in health left eventually.

    Indeed, Sharmuta’s last comment was Jan ’10, but she is amongst the 10K who were banned since last March.

    Late to the thread and it’s probably been said that this is a real strong clue that these bannings were done in batches. In some kind of weird, hypersexual way I can’t really see knuckleheadjohnson (sounds like a blues cat, eh?) deliberately and consciously banning Sharmuta.

  119. So I wonder how many “members” does CJ boast about having?
    xx,xxx? Or xxx,xxx?
    Wouldn’t this be equivalent to a dictator pointing towards the mass graves and claiming that those are his people?

    Surprised he didn’t delete the comments from Atlasshrugged, aka Pam Geller. His rage at being straight-armed by her resonates to this very day. She was a very active poster, and very strongly-opinionated, as you would expect from her current internet and offternet personas. I had a couple of run-ins with her myself, especially regarding Schiavo.

    Chunky’s approach to Pam at the meet-up, from which we have seen pictures, went a lot like the following according to sworn-at witnesses:

      • Claytonia Sibirica says:

        I know what I’ve observed. What I observed is (if you’ll forgive the pun) a pussy that talked big.

But that isn’t particularly surprising because the thread in question is chock full of deleted posts. I don’t think that used to be the case.

    Reading old threads on his blog must be a real revelation these days.

    • Pig says:

      A cool project for the BRC would be to find which thread has the highest percentage of deleted posts. Eventually there is going to be a thread with hundreds of replies, all deleted.

    • ChenZhen says:

      I know you hate my guts, but if you’re referring to the dates that are listed in the spreadsheet, those are registration dates.

      When CJ swings the ban stick, he doesn’t record it on his site. Therefore, we really don’t have banning dates for anyone.

      • nbpundit says:

        Excuse me Chen, I don’t waste my time hating nics.
        As to the way the blocking list is made up, it reads like the
        banning happened on the date after the nic.

      • ChenZhen says:

        hmm..OK well..just so everyone knows..under the column that says “reg. date” is the date that refers to the username’s “registration date”. As in, the date that CJ recorded the username being registered on his site, as visible on the user profile page that we made a point of mentioning as the source of the info we were gathering.

  137. Zappa Would Be Vomiting says:

    Chuck isn’t left, Right or Centrist.

    He is opportunist.

    Any change in real tone is that he is now desperate opportunist.

    When his blog got hits after 9/11 he went with it. the numbers show he kept his mouth shut and hosted the site. He was empowered by RatherGate and simply wanted to reshape the blog so he’d be more acceptable as a media-known blogger.

    When that failed and Obama got in he changed sides like changing socks. Chuck was never on the social conservative side but he had plenty of posts re: Sowell et al that placed him in the economic freedom camp. Turned it off like a light switch.

    Now that he is trying to make a living on the left he has nothing to fall back on – nobody hires a freelance webjockey to put up a wordpress site anymore.

    Sad, but Chuck is quick to condemn anyone who expresses an opinion he is stoking fear of so he gets no sympathy.

    • garycooper says:

      I think you’re wildly underestimating the vigor, nay, venom with which he promoted his post 9/11, pre-Obama-inauguration assumed staunch-conservatism and anti-Islamofascist war of words. He was positively, solidly in the camp of the Right, and on GWB’s side all the way. His conversion was so sudden and bizarre, when he decided to leave the Right and throw in with the Left, most people who’d been observing him closely were convinced he’d suffered a mental breakdown. Maybe a closed-head injury, falling off his bike. It was damn weird.

      • Zappa Would Be Vomiting says:

        But he wasn’t on board on Schiavo and that stuff.

        He was pro-war and seemed to be pro-market. A sort of post Liberal who went libertarian.

        Really, though, I think he was content to simply host this huge community and collect rent. Then the CAIR inspired FBI calls and he is starting to think up ways to moderate with robots.

        I just don’t get the total switch unless he simply isn’t really committed even though he seemed then and does now. “Awakening” is bullshit because he has no capacity to allow others to not agree with him which, at least in my life, “awakened” people do.

    More speculation on Iceweasel’s true relationship with the Fat Man, please. Have they ever hooked-up? Is she somehow connected to Soros, as someone commented the other day? How did she get control over his brain, if neither of the above is true?
    Inquiring minds want to know. Also, is there really any evidence backing up the rumors of her erstwhile porn-career? ‘Cuz that’s some funny sheet, right there.

    Yes.

    • garycooper says:

      So, JimmahIce are paid-agitators, but paid by Soros? How do we know this? Have they ever boasted about their connection to the crafty old wizard? Sorry, but my curiousity is really stoked now.

        Good morning from the seekrit soros lair in Scotland! hope everyone is well today.

        I’m looking at memeorandum and it’s still nothing but weiner. Weiner all the time.

        101 J1mmah Sun, Feb 21, 2010 12:40:40am

        Oh me too– actually, Jimmah and I made a lot of domestic improvements to the seekrit Scottish Soros Lair while I was there. The main one we want to make (but won’t do until I get the spousal visa) is a new stove (aka ‘cooker’). Gas all the way, baby. I’m no kind of cook but I really can’t cook on electric because I can’t control or see the temp as well. Feh on electric!

        On the off chance my visa is refused i don’t want to have already installed a new gas stove in the kitchen, as we’d need that money for a) legal fight and b) alternative living situation for however long.

        It really is the first thing we’re doing when approved. Well, ok, the second.

        317 J1mmah Sun, May 2, 2010 8:03:46am

        Jimmah’s here in nyc with me now, and the goal is for us not to have to be separated again. Hopefully I’ll get my spousal visa soon, which will let us return to Scotland together.

        The plan is for the seekrit joint Soros lair to be permanently based in Scotland, but being transnational progressives and all we have a few other seekrit locales as backup. 😉

        The tutoring claim was made through private emails. Whoops!

        Probably shouldn’t have later stabbed people in the back and slandered them after revealing personal details.

    • garycooper says:

      Very similar to what happened to me, only Ludwig was the one who banned me. If those two had banning-powers, and were both part of Chunky’s Secret Circle Of Trust, how funny it is to recall their eventual falling-out and war of bitch-words. Palace intrigue, in the basement bunker…

      As a proud holder of a Degree in Psychology (and one in English Lit), I can tell you that the term “nervous breakdown” has no real meaning from a medical standpoint. It’s a catch-all term, that can cover a LOT of bases. Of course, I could have just googled that info, and skipped all the tuition and testing and stuff, but we used to think that whole college-thing was important, back in the 20th Century.

      I suspect that the reality of Asswhistle”s and Jimmahny Cricket”s life is a lot less “glamorous” then the fantasy they’re trying to pass off to the gullible sycophants of The Bog.

      It’s been my experience that when people “toot their own horns” and boast about their “connections” and their “lavish lifestyle”, it turns out to be bullshit.

      Most likely the dynamic duo are living in a small “flat” and toiling at humdrum jobs to get by while foisting their fantasy life onto the more naive denizens of the Interweb so they can feel better about themselves and their humble existence.

  147. Nomad says:

    One thing occurred to me about the classes of 2007 and 2008 having an especially high ban rate. These were the last years, IIRC, that CJ could be said to be on the conservative side. That could mean that the newbies were still mostly of the right, but I don’t know if that means much.

    • dwells38 says:

      This is what I think. He targeted the dormants as potential enemies and mockers because he recognized their failure to join the community was becaue they either 1) were turned off conservatives (which he hates) or 2) just socks of previously banned (which he hates more).

      Just think if he’d thought of a way for everyone to stay and get along regardless of his own political bent. Could’ve been great times. But he rolls with the mean streak, the insults, the banning/blocks and the need for conformity.

      Makes for a great ego self-stroke. Successful blog? Not s’much.

Was banned (didn’t leave enough time, he figured out it was me, then, after I was banned of course, told everyone he banned my other sock too. I had no other sock so I am now officially apologizing to DJames for getting you banned.

    • Iron Fist says:

      Island Libertarian was bannd as my “sock”, and I know that Charles knew that simply wasn’t so. It was just a convenient excuse to get rid of another coservative voice. Which is fine. Really, if you look at what Charles has done, he pissed away maybe a million dollar oppertunity to switch sides the way he did. Now his site is worthless. I doubt his ad revenue covers his hosting fees.

    Jazzy X has a bad few days. My post busting him being an apologist for Louis Farrakhan. Oliver Willis giving him a smackdown. Now Chen and the BRC’s showing the amount of banned nicks at LGF. He’s really hurting and I am enjoying this!

  152. nbpundit says:

    Charles was never a conservative. He was never on the right. He just happened
    to be online at the right time to exploit 9/11. He ran with it. I think the reason
    he rarely posted in the beginning after the attack, he was afraid he’d give himself
    away. I bet he puked regularly having to read the comments we left. Or maybe at first
    he didn’t really read them to keep from puking.

    • garycooper says:

      Nope, he was a wingnut, at least for a long period there. If he was faking it, he must have hired writers to put out all those right-wing, anti-Islamist posts. Probably paid some local kid to take the photos, too. 😉

    • dwells38 says:

      I dunno. He was a pretty dedicated anti-Jihadist and anti-(left)Idiotarian. There was so much more passion and guts in his responses back then. I don’t see it now. I think he’s having a hard time swalling left-wing swill especially when they show they still hate him because of all his insults.

  153. ChenZhen says:

    I’m gonna toss a late-night theory out there, based on a few things…It’s possible that the mass-banning was a knee-jerk response to our aforementioned thread last month about the “banning level” where we threw CJ’s own words back at him and challenged him to provide a current figure.

    Now, if I were CJ (i.e. a completely arrogant jackass), I would have responded by pretending to ignore the challenge, while banning countless scores of account holders as a “betcha can’t figure this out” spite move, assuming that my opponent wouldn’t have the wherewithal to catch it.

    Oops!?!?

  154. WalkedAway says:

    The Osprey :
    I thought Sharmuta was there much earlier than 2007…or was it under a different NIC?

    I’m very late to the thread, so I am hoping someone has mentioned that Sharmuta had several names. I’m thinking “W-Lover” was one. Quite sure there were others, but can’t recall right now.

  155. lordnazh says:

    Yay two of my accounts are finally on the list (me and a sock); I hope the sock was useful as long as it lasted though 😦

  156. Moe Katz says:

    Well that sort of answers a question I had in the back of my mind: the BRC’s statistics have no way of excluding detected socks, even those with a half life measured in minutes. That could be a real wild card in interpreting the figures meaningfully.

    • Engineer #5 says:

      What doesn’t need interpretation though is that CJ has now blocked the posters of more than 6.6 million of LGF’s 9 million comments.

  161. Pakimon says:

    I’ve noticed that Sharmuta has been mentioned repeatedly throughout this thread so here’s a link that pretty much encapsulates the her entire saga for any newcomers that aren’t familiar with the story.

    “I Was a Musician’s Girl”, or “Sharmuta Gets a Life?”

    • garycooper says:

      She had a crap-load of comments as W-Lover, too. Were any of her other nics as prolific?
      You guys that are friends with her should invite her over here. I think she’d get a chuckle or two. Maybe a jab here and there. 😉

      • m says:

        I think it would be cool if she did. I also think she owes at least a blanket apology to her former friends that she shit on to make the johnson happy.

    for the record….
    Sharmuta was a very sweet, sensitive, bright woman….just a joy to post with….she was very gentile natured, a devout Catholic and one hell of a nice person….anybody that says otherwise is either ignorant or a liar

    I’ll be both if you like, but they taught me to read when I was young and it was all there in print. She had serious issues and it showed in spades.

  164. Formerly Hhar says:

    Note: I posted there as Hhar. I got tired of the groupthink and syncophancy, and blocked myself by changing my password into a random series of characters.

    I didn’t (and don’t) really care about the bannings much: its CJ’s site, he can run it as he likes. But the syncophancy, and CJ’s encouragement of it, is really creepy.

    Not that Rodan doesn’t creep me out a bit too, frankly. But LGF is a straightforward loss.

    • ChenZhen says:

      • Formerly Hhar says:

        That’s right. I wasn’t actually blocked. I left, and quietly too. That’s why I posted: I was surprised to see my nic on the list here.

        I suppose I could have been blocked posthumously. Wouldn’t surprise me: there are not a lot of the pre-2004 vintage folks left posting there….But you might want to double check on whether or not I was blocked, because if I was, it was after I blocked myself.

      • ChenZhen says:

        You were on last years’ blocked list too…so it’s tough to say when CJ blocked your account.

        But like I said in the thread, he was obviously banning the quiet folks too.

    • Arachne says:

      I wouldn’t have given a crap either, if he didn’t smear people after he banned them and let his minions pile on and do likewise, but the object couldn’t rebut. Especially true of calling Iron Fist a racist. That totally pissed me off. He called people racists, extremists and other choice names and they had no opportunity to respond. Which is why a lot of them came here and to the Mother Ship over at Blogmoc

      Well, he was the one who told us all to get our own blogs, after all….

    • OldLineTexan says:

      Dear old Shar piled on me a few times during the original zombie groupthink epidemic. No love lost there at all, I’m afraid.

      Personally? Since 2006 to present I have been dealing with a family situationn that includes addiction, codependency, personality swings, and what amounts to mental illness. Anyone that escapes that kind of shit and improves their life has my blessings and best wishes. I just don’t need to “see” them again. It’s a character flaw of mine.

      Now Stalker Charles is a different animal altogether. He smeared me, he smeared my friends, and he did so in his little protected arena like a coward. I seriously enjoy the lulz his asscapades have created (and the amazing people here who make sure I see them, LOL), and I don’t mind being an asshole about it, either.

    • OldLineTexan says:

      BTW, dude, this is DoD … post away, from what I understand the groupthink here is much more nuanced than over at the Bog … 😉

      BTW, if you have any post-apocalyptic homoerotic cowboy pr0n stories, they are ESPECIALLY appreciated here.

    • m says:

      I think it was cool that you defended her. There was a time when I would have done the same thing. I even laughed at the “sore loser” comment since I helped turn lgf2 from lgfsucks into theBlogmocracy which is the spinoff blog that spun the very spinoff blog we are all enjoying right now. (*get your own blog!* just didn’t work out like he wanted)

      Winning!

      I think that even Sharmie would admit that I was right if she’s honest about it. And I do regret some things I posted about her – now – even though it was all true.

      I still blame charles though.

    He could be the first to ever suffer from it .

    charlieocide;
    a rare condition that has never been seen before until the advent of the blogs on the internet.
    The additive need to erase, ban, block or murder nic’s in cyberspace.
    Apparently the color green, hamsters, the term lizards, the need to put up lousy jazz youtube video’s, and posting pictures of tankers, rusted hinges, and flowers helps forment this rare condition. Also having no outside contact other than by phone or e-mails makes it worse.
    A patient exhibiting these signs would surely be a danger to society if they were to leave their house. But thankfully having this condition prevents one from leaving the house.
    In the more acute form of this condition, drinking mountian dew, eating cheetos and the mere mention of cheeseburgers sends them into a ‘blocking and banning’ frenzy.
    Tragically there is no cure and since they haven’t actually ‘erased’ an actual person they haven’t committed a crime other than to themselves. Extreme mocking, finger pointing and refuting of their lies seems to keep them in some kind of check, but in the end they will continue to spiral out of reality and exhibit magical ponytail thinking.

  170. Athos says:

    Last time the spreadsheet was posted, I wasn’t on the blocked list. I just refused to post / visit since early 2009 given what was going on. Now, I’m blocked….couldn’t even flounce or hit 10K comments…lulz

    Registered 15 June 2004 3:41pm

    Wonder if it was because of my own blog – or making comments supporting bloggers calling out CJ’s hypocrisy that hurt his feelings?

  171. beed says:

    400+ comments?

    Monumental.

  172. I feel a sense of pride in that my name is on that list. I didn’t flounce, nor did I ever discover that I had been banned. I simply stopped attending his site and quit commenting. I guess that was enough for Charlie.

    On a more personal note, some time in 2006, I told a friend of mine that LGF was a good site to check out. I am pissed still, because there is no way to go back in time to untell that friend. I gave my name to this ass hat in reference. Those of us who give referrals usually feel that the value of our opinions are worth more when we take steps to protect that value. I once referred Charles Johnson, and now feel ashamed that I have done so.

    • Pakimon says:

      It’s nothing to be ashamed of.

      Back in 2006, if someone had predicted that Charles would go completely “off the rails” and destroy his blog, nobody would have believed it.

  173. WalkedAway says:

    Class of 2005 here. I blocked you before you blocked me, Chuck. Right about the time you kicked Buzzsawmonkey and told OccasionalReader where he wasn’t allowed to read and post. That was just the limit for me. I should have left much, much sooner.

  174. Heh.
