scaramouche: shh. Don’t want to wake up the Mudheads with any factual data; it might hurt their feelings.

Mike: you have stung me to the quick.
Guess you missed the numerous statements from the owner of that site saying it was exactly what he wanted, and that he was delighted with it?
Thank you for the comment, though. Every time you folks reveal yourselves as the low, crass, hate-filled slogan spouters you are, I laugh. But just a little; then I get back to work.

It’s on the front page, cedar.
102 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 7:44:17am
cedar: got it. So, in other words, a front page post that contains a vile picture (unflattering, too) of me as Eva Braun is fine with you?
Thanks for clarifying.
113 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 8:09:05am
No, it’s not. However, I don’t recall seeing a picture of you at all on MetaFilter. Did I miss something?
Nice dodge. Thanks for playing.

Folks, we’re talking about two different things. The actual picture was not visible on the Mudfilter page.
There was, however, a link to the picture. That’s what cedar and johnny dee think is just fine. According to these guys, there’s a huge difference between posting the actual picture, and posting a link telling people to go look at the picture. Apparently, when someone posts a link to a crude photoshop that puts my head on Eva Braun’s body at Metafilter, I’m supposed to have humility and acknowledge that I’m not always right.
It’s a matter of nuance, you see. When executing a personal smear job, it’s good to do it in as nuanced a way as possible.

One is left to wonder how long that personal attack would have remained on Metafilter’s front page if I hadn’t linked to it.
Getting caught does wonders for some people’s scruples.
180 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 11:24:31am
Folks, what we have here is a typical case of lefty role reversal. To divert attention away from the fact that a link to a really nasty personal attack was left on Mudfilter’s front page for several hours — on Easter morning, mind you — it’s now become a matter of the “group think” at LGF. We’re all supposed to be ashamed and I’m supposed to be humble. And even pointing it out is called a bad thing.
Just observe the tactics at work.
182 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 11:32:07am
OK, folks — I don’t know for sure — I never saw the picture at Mudfilter. So I don’t know either way, at least from my personal experience.
But be aware — this is not the issue. This is an attempt by Mudfilter groupies to turn the argument around and deflect the blame.

cedar: you’re really starting to show your jerk badge.
The “Nuke Mecca crowd,” as you put it, does not appear on the front page.
“A dumb post.” I’m trying to remain level-headed here. But someday I’d like to see how you react if you wake up on a nice Easter morning and find the Mudfilter slimeballs chuckling and patting each other on the back at how clever they are for comparing you to Adolf Hitler’s girlfriend.
In an ugly polka dot dress to boot.
Right, but that’s just “dumb.” Whereas, pointing it out is “shameful, hypocritical, disingenuous,” etc. etc. etc. retch.
That “dumb” post stayed up for almost 6 hours, until I linked to it. I’m pretty sure that if I hadn’t linked to it, it would have remained.
Now go away, you pest.

Please note: now the discussion has turned to ways to shut LGF down, at Metatalk.
215 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 12:33:49pm
That’s right, not everything is about me. How could I have thought that putting my head on Eva Braun, then gloating over it at Metafilter, was about me?
I’m such a thin-skinned narcissist. You have taught me much, cedar.
304 Charles Sun, Apr 11, 2004 7:47:08pm
And by the way, at this point, you’ve made my case, underlined it, signed it, sealed it, bought insurance, and shipped it FedEx. Thanks.

Note: See the update to the thread. They’re saying mean things about us over at “Screw Them” Zuniga’s hole again.

SAO (who is in Canada) takes a pause from bashing LGF at every other site in the blogosphere, to spew:
Nobody is comparing Charles himself to a Nazi, just a few “cherry-picked” comments.
Uh huh. That Eva Braun thing, why, that’s just a joke, right?
167 Charles Mon, Apr 12, 2004 9:36:17am
It’s a lie. There has never been a single post by me that uses the word “pancake” to refer to Rachel Corrie. Not one.
