The Price of a Certain Blogger’s Dignity

A couple weeks ago, our own Daedalus put up a thread about an LGF post where Johnson was singing the praises of Amazon Prime (as well as mentioning that anyone who signed up for the service thru his link wound up putting $10 in his pocket*):

Amazon Prime

At the time, those of us here in the Boiler Room took a quick glance and assumed this was yet another ordinary Amazon-pimping thread from our old pal. But then something surprising happened shortly after: he “stickied” the entire thread at the top of LGF’s front page (any new thread simply showed up below it). The Crew here looked at each other in bewilderment, as none of us could remember Johnson doing anything quite like that before**.

Indeed, this caused some confusion over there as well, to the point that CJ felt the need to tinker with the formatting a little in an attempt to clear things up:

cj confusion sticky post

Regardless of these efforts, after a few days, the discomfort with it even escalated to the level of irking LGF member Bubblehead II, leading to this rather hilarious exchange:

cj amazon sticky exchange

We then saw that CJ took a bit of umbrage in this (as he usually does when faced with the slightest pushback from members), as evidenced by his need to immediately sound off in the main discussion thread:

cj amazon pay bills

And why shouldn’t he be miffed, right? I mean, he spent the time writing, then coding, re-coding, formatting, adjusting and even re-fonting this special sticky thread that shouts to the world the wonders of the magnificent Amazon Prime (along with the fact that he’ll make a quick 10 bucks if you sign up, of course)! Charles be like “F*ck you you unappreciative lizard b*tches”!!!

In any case, after that, commenting activity in the sticky thread itself ceased completely (ending with just 35 comments). Reading LGF’s discussions going forward, one got the vibe that what remains of the site’s commenters knew it was there and what was going on but had chosen to quietly ignore it. But there it still sat at the top of the front page…And sat…. And sat….Charles boldly panhandling to visitors for $10 “bounties”, forcing them to scroll down a bit past ads and pop-ups if they wanted to see a current article.

So of course we decided kept an eye on it, and the thread actually wound up staying up there for a couple weeks, only disappearing when CJ took it down at (what appeared to be) precisely midnight Jan 10/11th. Why for that long you ask, and why take it down with such clinical precision? Well, we asked Google to look it up, and it leads to the really interesting part (cache):

  • Amazon Prime Instant Video Free Trial BountyYou will earn a $2 bounty for each Qualifying Purchase consisting of an Amazon Prime Instant Video Registration. An“Amazon Prime Instant Video Registration” occurs when an Eligible Customer successfully registers (as determined by us) for an Amazon Prime Instant Video Free Trial via the Prime Instant Video landing page located athttp://www.amazon.com/gp/video/primesignup or http://www.amazon.com/gp/prime/signup/videos (or any successor pages). You will not earn the $2 bounty for any other free or paid registration for Amazon Prime, including registrations through any other web page. You will not be eligible to earn any other advertising fees for free or paid registration for Amazon Prime (including an Amazon Prime Instant Video Registration). An “Eligible Customer” is a customer who meets the eligibility requirements for an Amazon Prime Instant Video Free Trial (as determined by us). An Amazon Prime Instant Video Registration is a “Digital Product.”
    Notwithstanding the foregoing, from December 26, 2013 through January 10, 2014 (subject to our right to modify this Schedule in accordance with the Operating Agreement), you will earn a $10 bounty, rather than a $2 bounty, for each Qualifying Purchase consisting of an Amazon Prime Instant Video Registration.

I say this is the interesting part because, according to Amazon, they’ve been offering these $2 bounties for Prime registrations since July 1, 2013, but we don’t recall CJ saying a peep about it. We should assume he was aware (as he’s made himself quite an Amazon spokesman), but we could find no thread, comment, or even a link in the sidebar mentioning the opportunity. The conclusion is, I suppose, that begging your readers to sign up for something that will make you 2 bucks seems kinda petty or even downright pathetic, even if it doesn’t directly come out of their pockets.

But hey, if it’s $10, CJ had better make a thread all about it, then sticky it, tweet it, facebook it, tweak it, pretty it up, leave it plastered up on the front page for two weeks, tweet it again, and then only take it down at the last possible second.

Apparently, the price of a certain blogger’s dignity lies somewhere between 2 to 10 dollars.

* Impossible to know for sure, but try as we did, we could spot only three LGFers who publicly admitted to taking Johnson’s offer.

** The sticky thread was of interest to us for another reason, as it inadvertently gives us some clues as to WHY Johnson’s getting more aggressive with his Amazon shilling behavior. Stay tuned for more analysis.

    Excuse me all to Hell, Bubblehead II. I killed my successful blog for you rotten libturds, and I only get THREE lousy subscribers?! WTF? They told me I would be rich and popular like Ariana Huffington, if I switched sides. You know how long it’s been since I tasted a Chimay? I can’t even afford real Mountain Dew anymore — I have to drink the knockoff-swill from the Dollar Store! 😡

    Goin’ to China, Chunky. Prepare for mass bot-invasion. Oh, and all these tech-y items you’re tweeting are not getting you anywhere, because nobody cares, and it’s all yesterday’s news.

    You’re on the side of anarchy now, Fatass. Expect a visit from the flying man.

  7. ChenZhen says:

    To put this into a little perspective, I couldn’t find another blogger on the political web that even mentioned this Amazon Prime deal as an attempt to raise funds, let alone one that put it up as a sticky post for two weeks.

    It’s that sad.

      Legal Insurrection has a tab “Amazon Affiliiate” on their home page. That’s it. No pimping. You need to click on the tab to be advised how it works and hey, we appreciate it. Oh, and isn’t it interesting that Amazon continually uses the disclaimer “as determined by us.” I think you need a credit card/checking account for them to bill and I imagine the fine print says “if you do not actively request cancellation we will then bill your payment method for the full year price.” Wonder if the bounty is only paid once the user signs up for the entire year.

  8. Octopus says:

    Speaking of aging men with no dignity or integrity, I have to laugh at the plight of Alec Baldwin. It always tickles me to see old guys (well, my age or older) trying desperately to please their 20-something trophy-wives. When the guy is a total douche/libturd/rageaholic like Alec, who was even too crazy for MSNBC, it only tickles me more. 😆

    When it was rumored that young wifey Hilaria was actually the one alerting the paps to her and Alec’s outings, which led to several ugly encounters on the street, Alec screamed with rage at the impertinent suggestion of such a thing. Well, it turns out Hilaria is ALL about getting attention for herself, while Alec fetches the coffee and takes the little doggies out for their morning constitutionals/shits. She’s not afraid to stop NYC traffic, to pose for a selfie:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2539500/Unconcerned-Hilaria-Baldwin-stops-traffic-New-York-complete-yoga-pose-middle-street.html

    How is she at home? Oh, I guess you can imagine. Or, you can read Celebrity Blind Items, which coughed up this pearl the other day:

    This D list celebrity who would be a nobody on no list if not married to this A list actor, has gone through multiple nannies and maids over the past few months and is apparently a tyrant who screams much more often than she talks. The agency she uses says two people quit before lunch on their first day and multiple people have not gone back after the first day. Hilaria Baldwin (Alec)

    When all else fails, there will always be the photography to fall back on. Those are seagulls, by the way, Fatass. Yes, they are birds. Lovely creatures, as long as you don’t watch them too closely…a couple years ago, I saw one with a broken-wing get pecked to death by the rest of the flock. Kind of like what used to happen on your blog, when there were enough peeps around to sacrifice one every once in awhile.

    such a profound, well composed piece of art there Barry… let’s go over this then….. no subject (check). Therefore, no composition to draw the eye toward the subject (check.) The light…. used to draw the eye to the subject…. wait…. no subject….

    Maybe this explains why Chunkles has been so peevish and cranky as of late.

    It might also explain why he’s desperately trying to raise cash. 😆

  16. Pakimon says:

    Next thing you know, scientists will agree that the Western Civilization concept of toilet paper is wrong as well.

    They’re sure to suggest an alternative similar to that employed by our canine friends as “the proper and healthy way” 😆

    Now it’s a “tragedy.” And here I thought it was a myth, made up by insane racist wingnuts.

    • icekoldebassman says:

      Hmmmm … Is Chunkles referring to a pre-Benghazi bill[?] to cut some spending [on private contractors, e.g., Brown Veeder Root] that was actually NEVER put to a vote in Congress?

    • trebob says:

      The GOP did it? Are you kidding? That’s the new talking point for the Dems? Damn, they are getting desperate trying to dodge the Benghazi bullet.

      Except the Post gave it three Pinocchios. The paragraph I loved was:

      In fact, the Congressional Research Service has documented that Congress, whether led by Democrats and Republicans, year after year did not fully fund the various pots of money for embassy security. (See page 25.) The State Department, for instance, was shortchanged by $142 million in fiscal year 2010, when Democrats controlled both houses of Congress.

      When Deputy Asst. Secretary Lamb was asked during hearings in October 2012 if the budget or lack of resources was part of the problem she stated “No, sir”.

      Charles on the wrong side of an issue (yet again). Another EPIC FAIL in the works.

    • PeteP says:

      First it was the “Benghazi Boogaloo”, then it was a hoax and and now its a tragedy. It’s anything but a terrorist attack because that would mean that Dear Leader would have accept responsibility for it, right Chuck?

    I think he’s at least bi, if not totally gay. I think the marriage has been a workable disguise so far, but now that the political career is all but over, there’s no need to prolong the mild agony. I see this as a developing story.

    • doppel milyo says:

      the Rev. Wright’s church was well known to fix up gay men with homely women, for the purpose of getting elected to office, or at least filling the church pews with chilliness

      moochelle didn’t make out so badly. a hospital job at 300K that they invented just for her, then all those designer clothes and her very own US govt. 757 and security detail for life. not too shabby for a lady that looks like Chewbacca after he sucked on a lemon and chased it with warm buttermilk

      • Octopus says:

        They both made out just fine. Moochelle got her ego stroked like nobody else in history, and Obama got his strokes, too. Why, just look at how blissfully happy he is in this pic: http://tinyurl.com/mbnnbb7

        You don’t see him looking like that, with his heart beating out of his chest like PePe LePew in love, when he’s around Moo. He always looks like he’s acting, when he’s with her. Because he is.

    Unfortunately, they’ll never feel bad for anybody other than themselves. Like mother, like daughter.

  28. Octopus says:

    I hesitate to pin anything on those kids, until they earn it. They seem very polite, disciplined and they both do very well in school and athletics. Moochelle is a very demanding mother, it is said. I believe it.

    • Arachne says:

      Totally agree – they seem to have charm, grace, manners – oddly, everything their parents lack. But it really pisses me off when they are dragged out by the Grifter in Chief and Spouse for photo ops and “oh, Malia was asking me ‘did you plug the hole, Daddy?'” What BS. Carter used to do this with that half-wit looking daughter of his, Amy. Oh, and the ever fugly Chelsea Clinton was off limits. But the press couldnt WAIT to tear the Bush girls to shreds.

Not only is he drawing attention to a couple of lies Lord Unicorn has repeatedly told, he also draws the man with unflattering, “simian” features, instead of making him all handsome and shit. 😆

    • iSpeakJive says:

      Huh? He looks exactly like all of Rall’s characters, with a bit of chimpanzee in the shape of the mugs, but all his drawings are like that. Obama is just a bit more burnt sienna-ish. He didn’t even capture his blue lips or his truly chimp-like ears. Bad cartoonist.

Like the seagulls in the famous photo by Fatass McDumbth, who will peck a “compromised” member of their own flock to death, as some sort of dark survival-of-the-fittest mechanism. It should be remembered, Hillary Herself was subjected to the slashing beaks of her own party during the coronation of the Unicorn Messiah. That could happen again in a heartbeat, if she is wounded somehow in the process, or another Divine Messenger appears from the community organizing ranks.

    Or run a bunch of ads extolling the virtues of sluttitude while antibiotic-resistant STDs are running rampant.

      That reminded me of a story I saw a couple years back, about young gay men finding thrills and true love experiences by exposing themselves ON PURPOSE to sex with HIV-positive partners. It was at that point, that I abandoned all hope for the human race, and started living solely on Hunan Rice and sake. 😯

    Octopus :
    At least MSNBC is on the job for Hillary, throwing the dead ambassador under the bus in a most shameful display of proggie-rules. Come on, Chunky! You must address this matter, or risk losing your status as the premier news-aggregator on the invisible shadow blogosphere!

    Katty is more sane than Piers Morgan … heck, she almost makes sense a few times.

    But she’s got a spot of stupid about Chris Christie, and I have to wonder why I, a simple and lowly stalker, clearly understand why “the media” support(ed) Christie all thsi time and she very clearly does not.

    Does she not get the memos? As a Brit assigned to cover the disgustingly “free” politics of Her Majesty’s former colonies (all at the risk of personal injury via musket fire), does she not get the various talking point memos??? Couldn’t Piers help her out? Or does she have a restraining order against him, as most Brits seem to?

    It’s the DONKEY SHOW – or, how to Chuckie Three Chins entertains himself for hours:

    No one’s letting their kids on this site, right? RIGHT? I’m gonna hear from Bunk otherwise. Sorry, sorry, but I could not resist and after all, we’re friends with ZIP, aren’t we?

    • OLT's It's The Big One says:

      Oh dear sweet Jeebus and all that’s wholey, since I never go to the Donkey Show it has come to me!

      That’s it, I am going in the bunker, locking the door, and activating defensive systems (a picture of beed in his best tutu and a big casserole of lutefisk).

      I hope the beer and cake rations hold out. See you all next epoch.
