It has been a while since we last did a post on the sell proclaimed “mountain lion” Dark Falcon. He is LGF’s resident whipping boy who seeks approval from people who hate him. He once again grovels and asks acceptance from the LGF mob.
Dark Falcon is no mountain lion, he is at best a scared kitten.
Dark Falcon has become a non-entity in the blog war with LGF. His butt-kissing of other posters who do not respect him is pathetic and not worthy of any post on our end. Feeling neglected, the self-described mountain lion addresses us under the guise of “to anyone from other blogs” reading LGF.
Dark, you are a lame nitwit not worthy of our attention. Consider yourself lucky that I decided do a post displaying how pathetic you are.
Every time Charles introduces a “New Feature” on LGF, I ponder on the intent of the *ahem* improvement. This particular enhancement has been around for a while, yet the question is: what triggers a comment to be hidden from view? Is it something a Monitor Lizard or Charles himself decides in order to attract downdings from the LGF Hive, or do downdings trigger an algorithm that automatically hides the comment as offensive? It’s amusing to me that someone would go to so much trouble to thwart a perceived problem with a solution that makes it worse.
Since anyone can click on the button to find out what the BFD is, all the feature does is amplify The Streisand Effect.
So why the downdings Lizards? Dork’s right on this one, despite his feeble insult.
The Swamp was discussing The Restoration Act [Senate Bill S.1982] of 2015 and how the 114th Congress GOP majority defeated it. The proposed Act expands VA benefits to veterans injured outside of military service to include injuries sustained in the private sector and more. Nevermind that the same Bill was defeated in the 113th Dem-controlled Congress, and finding the vote tallies (from both 2014 and 2015) escapes my random sleuthing because I’d rather talk about Little Green Footballs.
Seems that Charles has updated his downdinger algorithm to automatically hide contrarian points of view, i.e., those who are deluged with LGF negative karma downdings like Dork Falcon.
[BTW, lizard “WhatEVs” (aka “Just Jay”) needs a lesson on Sciency Things. One strand of DNA from VJJ’s hair can exculpate/exonerate him/her as one of Charles Johnson’s progeny. I suggest that VJJ stop spitting out his/her Sugar-Free Trident and start policing his/her local sidewalks just in case the wads are one of his/her own and he/she’s got an outstanding traffic warrant or worse. Just sayin’.]
So what eggshell did Dork Falcon step on to deserve The New Little Green Footballs Hide Function? This:
Yeah, Dork Falcon missed the point completely, but he’s there as an example as to what may happen to one’s honestly posted opinions on Little Green Footballs.
Oh, I almost forgot – Hillary’s Billseye Un-Photoshopped Target Pants. Stay clear of that squid beak.
A Hearty Welcome to all BlogMockers, Stalkers, TwitterWarriors, Chuckleophiles, Current & Former Lizards and Esteemed Fellows of The Diary of Daedalus! Grab a brew and a big bowl of Cheetos’ cause it’s time for
The Annual LGF Awards!
Pickin’s were slim for Stupor Bowl 2014. Charles Johnson’s website Little Green Footballs has become a homogenous mix of like-minded vaporbrains, answering the right questions with the wrong answers while patting their fuzzy pockmarked behinds with congratulatory updings. This year’s Award Nominees and Poll Results turned up some surprises, so without further adieu, here are the recipients of The 2014 LGF Awards.
Previous winners of The Buzzsaw Award for intrepid flounce-worthy snarkage were:
2013 – Killgore Trout
2012 – Rightwing_2 aka MF Horn
2011 – No Awards. Fire in the Boiler Room
2010 – Cato “Do It Now” The Elder
The 2014 Buzzsaw Award is hereby presented to Killgore Trout.
Killgore Trout (Recipient of the 2013 Buzzsaw Award) received a whopping 52% of the vote this time around. He’s best known for his dishonest astroturfing of right wing websites in order to gain favor with Charles Johnson, and it worked for a while. Killgore lost his crown due to LGF hive attacks (orchestrated by Iceweasel & Jimmah), his penchant for non-conformity and general contrarian positions on LGF, and especially for his unwavering support for the State of Israel.
THE IRISH ROSE
Previous winners of The Irish Rose Award for salivating suckage:
2013 – Gus_802
2012 – Dark Falcon
2011 – No Awards. Fire in the Boiler Room
2010 – Dark Falcon
The 2014 Irish Rose Award is hereby presented to Stabby
The Irish Rose is not one that most recipients cherish. It acknowledges drooling unrequited love and adulation of Charles Foster Johnson and is reserved for those sycophantic little lizard lappers who remain in good standing at Little Green Footballs by stroking the Big Green Donkey Charles. Many assumed that El Gusano would win again this year, but it wasn’t in the cards for the Argentinian anti-American pro-jihad Johnson-catching Jew hater.
To his credit, Stabby had the cojones (unlike other LGF patrons like Gus_802 or Dark Falcon) to venture past the confines of The Swamp and opine at Diary of Daedalus, and therefore deserves the Award. (We’ve hosed off and disinfected Gus’ stained and encrusted throne, so shut up and have a seat.)
No one ever doubts who’s going to win The Johnson Award because there are so few 60+ year old guitarist bloggers with magical jazzy ponytails who qualify.
Here’s the vote breakdown. G’head. Click it, Charles.
2013 – Robert Stacy McCain
2012 – Andrew Breitbart (awarded posthumously)
Of all the LGF Awards, this one is perhaps the most auspicious (Charles pronounces the word “ouse-picky-use”) because it involves those who smack down The Corpulent Blogger with intelligence, logic, clever wit and humor.
Nick Searcy [@YesNickSearcy] won with 32% of the vote for his concise and effortless Twitter smackdowns of Charles [@Green_Footballs] Johnson’s kikmidog-style of ankle biting, and demonstrated the heart, soul, snark and wit required of all recipients of This Award. Therefore
Without disparaging Mr. Searcy’s entertaining and invaluable contributions, he never endured the vile barrage that Charles Johnson and his Little Green Flying Monkeys unleashed on Mandy [@Liberty_Chick] Nagy. While coping with Lupus Disease, Mandy suffered a massive stroke last fall, leaving her seriously crippled, both physically and mentally, and Charles Foster Johnson sent NO condolences.
Honorable Mention: Mandy Nagy
Kudos to all who participated in This Poll, and thanks also to The Corpulent One, whose hyperbolic bloviation and juvenile attention-whoring idiocy has provided us so much inane entertainment over the years.
Charles, PLEASE keep up the stupid. Were it not for your massive ego, your unjustified backstabbing of benefactors and supporters, and your dearth of coherent logic, we wouldn’t be sitting behind you at the Matinee kicking your chair, spitting Milk Duds down your shirt collar and betting on how many wet jujubes your magical jazzy ponytail can hold before they start dropping into your plumber’s crack. Thank you, Charles.
This is an update to a post I wrote a couple of years ago about the echo chamber that LGF has become.
A community in which members find their own opinions constantly echoed back to them, reinforcing their individual belief systems and creating an insular communication space that is of no interest to outsiders and which rejects their input.
Charles’ insipid rating system played a key role in LGF’s ruin, and now it’s the tie that binds the hive-mind. As the chart below shows, 87% of all comments made 2014, no matter how banal, were met with congratulatory twinkles. Of course, when a heretic appears, they still pounce on it with a passive aggressive fury. But the chart also shows, as Purity of Thought has increased, fewer posts are earning downtwinkles (only 0.4% in 2014).
For every 1000 comments at LGF, 869 are praised, 4 are frowned upon.
That is an echo chamber.
- If the contributions of just 3 commenters are removed from the data, the mutual admiration rate climbs to 89%, and the downtwinkle rate falls to 0.2%
- Who are these misfits?
- Killgore Trout – 1st place *by far* in downdinged posts, 2nd in 0 karma posts
- Dark_Falcon – 2nd place in downdinged posts, 1st in 0 karma posts
- NJDhockeyfan or sattv4u2 – roughly tied for 3rd in both, waaaaay behind KT and Dork
Most Downdinged Post of 2014 – regarding the Wendy Davis wheelchair ad:
Most Updinged Post of 2014 – an incoherent non-response to Dork’s post:
Dark_Falcon still has Daddy issues (why is he still on LGF otherwise?). I do not know if CreepyClown is a troll or legit but this is amusing – Reichwing? ha ha ha. CreepyClown ought to trademark that term otherwise Tubby will claim it as his own.
