You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

During Johnson’s recent Twitter tantrum over Glen Greenwald’s link to the Diary of Daedalus, he got agitated enough to respond to some unflattering facts being presented concerning banishment of dissenting opinion from LGF. In these tweets, Charles makes a number of claims on which he was called by some rapscallion named @RocIngersoll, and which warrant deeper scrutiny by the BRC.

 

 

15000+ ACTIVE LGF ACCOUNTS?
coms

Let’s give Charles the benefit of the doubt and round his “more than 15,000” all the way up to 16,000.

  • We know that there are more than 36000 registered LGF user accounts, and
  • Charles claims that LGF has 16000 _active_ accounts, therefore
  • Charles has apparently blocked at least 20000 accounts.

Now let’s look at what Charles means by “_active_”.

  • Around 23000 accounts have left 1 or more comments at LGF, and
  • Around 13000 registered accounts have never posted, and
  • Of the accounts that have posted, about 7000 remain unblocked, therefore
  • Charles must count 9000 unhatched accounts as _active_

We’ll return to this issue of active LGF accounts a bit later…

 

NOBODY IS BANNED FOR “DISAGREEING”?

The chart above depicts the number of accounts that permanently ceased posting to LGF within the previous 6 month period indicated on the bottom axis, grouped by current blocked status. For instance,

  • 964 LGF accounts posted their last during the period Jul-Dec 2006
  • Of these 320 (33%) are now blocked, while 644 are not
  • 2028 LGF accounts posted for the final time between Jul-Dec 2007
  • Of these, 2013 (99.2%) are now blocked, while 15 are not.

Charles claims “we [we, Charles?] automatically suspend accounts if they’re inactive for a certain amount of time”. What period of time is that? 10 years? Oh wait, Charles is on record stating that the inactivity limit is 6 months.
 



There is obvious evidence of a massive purge of the accounts which last posted during Charles’ Great Awakening between mid-2007 and early 2011. Thousands walked away from their accounts, and thousands of others were blocked as they individually incurred Charles’ wrath along the way.

But the BRC previously established that over 10000 of these accounts were blocked en masse at a later date, in a one-time event, sometime between March 2011 and March 2012. No inactivity timer played a role in the suspension of these accounts.

In addition, there is no evidence that any sort of automatic inactive account suspension has been in effect since that time. Quite to the contrary, the 6500 as yet unblocked accounts whose last posts were made between 6 months and 10 years ago prove otherwise.

Which takes us back to Charles’ _active_ account claim.

  • If LGF has 15000+ _active_ accounts (generously rounded to 16000, above), and
  • 9000 of them have never posted anything, and
  • 5500 haven’t posted for over 7 years, and
  • another 1000 have been silent for at least 6 months, then
  • LGF has less than 500 accounts that can reasonably be considered _active_

 

UPDATE!
In an unprecedented series of admissions, Charles publicly set the record straight regarding the specious claims deconstructed above:

    Looks like the global warming graph.

    no warming in 17 years
    and
    essentially no new LGF members since 2010

    HIDE THE DECLINE BARRY!

    • Arachne says:

      Indeed. Johnson has registration perpetually open, instead of the occasional 30 min span that he used to have. Johnson used to advise the number of “hatchlings” and now says nothing. New Twitter followers, yea.

      The mood is strikingly different now. He needs to depend on faceless nameless twits to defend him – before if he posted hate mail (and not only did he post it verbatim, he also advised the origination data) he’d be adult about it and snarky in his response. Now? Hate mail references are nebulous, never posted for reading by the masses – just the “TEA Party is out to get me.” TEA Party could care less about Johnson. He’s defanged, declawed and deeesgusting. He could vanish tomorrow and no one would notice except this blog.

      Your daughter has a son, and his daddy is Charles Johnson.

      That’s typical liberal nonsense. They all tend to spout/knee-jerk hyperbolic bumper-sticker crap without stopping to think things through.

      • Octopus says:

        When they do try to think things through, it often comes out even worse. Once you’ve drunk the Kool-Aid, it gets all over everything.

      • rightymouse says:

        One time my moonbat mother decided to rag about fracking. She went on and on about people being able to light their tap water on fire. Hubby tried to reason with her, citing facts, and she didn’t want to hear it.

      • rightymouse says:

        She lives in Pennsylvania where it had been proven that methane was in the water before fracking ever started there. She didn’t want to hear about it.

      • Octopus says:

        Yeah, the fracking…my moonbat sis-in-law saw the eco-hysterical movie about that, last year. She was babbling about it at Christmas. I did a lot of smiling and nodding. It’s just not worth fighting over, in that situation.

      Your Last Posting
      (Los Angeles)

      –apologies to Robert Browning and “My Last Duchess”

      That’s your last posting ever on this blog,

      And henceforth your account is blocked. You’ll dog
      
My site no further with your words; your nic
      
Is banished, and I gave your posts the stick.

      You know I’ll call your banning here a “flounce”
      Though I’ve been waiting for some time to pounce
      On your account, and with prevarications
      Distort and demonize your observations.
      The Toad Hall where you reveled, if you please’ll
      Be given entire to the stoats and weasels,
      
My countenance beaming on each one that

      Comes to me bearing tales of Mole or Rat,

      Or Badger, or…sockpuppet. No, ‘t was not

      This writing only, placed you on the spot

      And caused me to invoke the ban: perhaps

      You chanced to differ with my own claptrap

      And stick to your position, or dispute

      Conventional wisdoms to which repute

      I’ve lately granted. Don’t you dare to say

      That I or my site might have lost their way

      Obsessing on my personal vendettas;

      I am neither forgiving nor forgetter,
      
And will not brook a failure of obeisance

      By anyone I feel owes me allegiance.
      Yes, I took Rather down, on grounds that he
      Could not support what he claimed factually;
      But now I set my sights at lower bar
      (On personalities, not things that are)
      While I squat ‘midst the wreckage I have made

      Like mad Kurtz ruling from his bush stockade,
      
Ringed ’round with skulls. For I no longer deign

      To weigh a fact itself; instead, maintain
      
That source determines truth, and to that end
      The nature of veracity I bend,
      Citing to midden-heaps of rankness such
      
That I would not long since have scorned to touch.
      
A turtle is a lizard in a shell,
      And I, lord of my self-created hell

      Remain King Yertle of the Turtle Stack
      
Exalted on my Posting Turtles’ backs–
      Yet conscious, as I proclaim my renown
      
It’s just posting turtles, all the way down, 

      Which is why I respond with rage and fear

      Should anyone mouth what I deem a sneer

      Or contradiction. So I flip a switch,
      And all posts stop together, with a bitch
      
Given reign of my elegant designs.

      Yet, if I still retained but half a spine
      
I would despise appearing to be led

      As I now seem to, by the lesser head.
      
Hark! Look you! See how Glenn Beck weeps!

      Do you not loathe the company he keeps
      
Regardless of whatever he might say?
      Here is the global warming word today;
      
Do not dissent, the banning stick is toward
      
I care for no voice save that of accord!

  9. Stabby says:

    20,000 people pissed him off? That’s a lot of people, how did he find the time? If, say, each poster pissed him off for ten minutes that 3,333.33 hours of being pissed off! To paraphrase Eddie Izzard, his diary must look very odd:
    “Get up in the morning, seeth, seeth, seeth, seeth, seeth, seeth, seeth – lunch- seeth, seeth, seeth -afternoon tea – seeth, seeth, seeth – quick shower…”

    • just poop says:

      you will notice that whenever he did an “interview” he had his laptop. He spends every waking moment on his blog and on google looking for references to his name.
      hundreds of thousands of blog comments and tweets, and about 25 minutes outdoors in the last 10 years

      he pisses in mountain dew bottles and orders food delivery off amazon.com so he never has to log off.
      even when he rubs his pud to photos of Pam Gellar, he has a second screen following twitter and LGF

    So how does everyone feel about trying to log into our LGF accounts? I’ve never tried but maybe it would be interesting to see how many of us are among the few still banned.

  12. Octopus says:

    Fatass is lying again. He banned everyone who hasn’t been active. He probably has a crap-ton of socks lying about, to “prove” he doesn’t ban everyone who doesn’t post, but he cleaned house of all the real people.

    Why am I supposed to hate Michael Hayden again? I forgot what the hit on him was supposed to be.

    The US intelligence community’s spokespeople are trying to get out in front of the release of a highly critical report on the CIA’s detention and interrogation programs (read: torture), but former CIA director Michael Hayden is not really helping with patronizing, sexist comments like this.

      • dnd - bil-yuns won't be says:

        Plate smashing, a traditional Greek folk custom involving the smashing of plates or glasses during celebratory occasions. In popular culture, the practice is most typical of foreigners’ stereotypical image of Greece, and while it occurs more rarely today, it continues to be seen on certain occasions, such as weddings, although plaster plates are more likely to be used.

      • rightymouse says:

        If anyone tried to smash my good plates & glasses, I’d kick their ass. And I’m serious!! Grrrrrr!!!!

      • Octopus says:

        I’ve been around the Greeks for 35 years, and I have yet to see a plate or glass broken on purpose. It’s just not done, anymore.

        But the dancing…go to a Greek wedding or party. Everyone dances, old and young. It’s a lot of fun. 🙂

      Does anyone give a shit WHO he blocks. Hell I get troll rats on my Twitter feed all the time. Since I know Fatass is fond of the “Reply Trap” I don’t respond to them. If they persist maybe I block and maybe I don’t. I don’t consider them “stalkers.”.

  23. ISpeakJive says:

    Chunky remarked the other day about Charles Murray (hideous Nazi scientist) appearing on Bill Maher’s show. Murray wrote “The Bell Curve” which is liberal heresy, of course. Murray reviews Nicholas Wade’s new book that explains cultural differences could be due to genetic differences. Duh.

    So what’s it gonna be, Chunky? You’re all sciency and shit. Are you gonna reject the data and dismiss the speculations because you just “know” it can’t be true or are you gonna try to do a character assassination on either of these guys to make uncomfortable truths go away??

      You can always measure Charles’ desperation level by his choice of adjectives and the number of adverbs he inserts:

      Sometimes more is less Charles. You sound like a shrieking Onocentaur.
