I took a stroll over to The Mothership this afternoon and found that she was down for unknown reasons. Thinking that my FireFox bookmarks might be corrupted due to the recent upgrade, I googled The Blogmocracy and clicked that link. No dice.
Instead I found an amusing blast from the past by Robert Stacy McCain in 2012. Down in the comments, “Jacobus” posted a link to this:
The last phrase in that self-description says a lot.
So 33-year-old Magical Jazzy played with Chicago in 1986? News to me, so I searched the BRC Archives. He never once mentioned the band, and he’s not listed anywhere in their lineups. Go figger.
Charles, you’re a mess.
Even in 2003, way before Little Green Footballs was on anyone’s radar, Charles Johnson was paranoid and couldn’t trust his own few commenters to police themselves on a Memorial Day weekend, so he shut off comments on LGF for four days.
Not sure what “Deathberg” warned him about, as the comments have been blocked from public view. Five years later, Charles posted this:
That was Charles Johnson in 2008, and a Memorial Day post is good enough for me. Then I found this in the BRCCJ Comments Archive:
So I Googled it.
And I found this. The following day, Charles Johnson posted a bitchrant that Google didn’t properly acknowledge Memorial Day in their logo.
So what’s the point of all this?
Charles Johnson’s 2017 Memorial Day Post.
Turns out the guy hated muslim infiltration and was a Bernie Sanders supporter, and the POTUS didn’t say enough himself, at least according to Charles Johnson.
Charles, your spittle is dribbling down your chins.
Okay, Charles, let’s go. You posted it.
Yeah. Now what did you leave out of that brilliant piece of cut-n-paste “journalism”, Charles? Did you even read the article from the Washington Post? Did you miss the facts? The innuendo?
During an interview with the Washington Post editorial page staff in March 2016, Trump identified Page, who had previously been an investment banker in Moscow, as a foreign policy adviser to his campaign. Campaign spokeswoman Hope Hicks later described Page’s role as “informal.”
Page has repeatedly denied any wrongdoing in his dealings with the Trump campaign or Russia.
“This confirms all of my suspicions about unjustified, politically motivated government surveillance,” Page said in an interview Tuesday. “I have nothing to hide.” He compared surveillance of him to the eavesdropping that the FBI and Justice Department conducted against civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
Every President in US history, including President Trump, has employed experts with experience dealing with foreign trade partners. Hell, the United States probably wouldn’t even exist had it not been for Franklin successfully negotiating with DuPont.
Why would the Obama Administration direct the FBI to investigate legal business practices? Okay, that’s a rhetorical question because the answer is obvious.
Does the FBI know that Charles Johnson threatened people with a Mossberg? I’ll bet they do.
Charles, you’re a mess.
P.S. “Tick Tock” is a threat meme used by Anonymous and other splinter vigilante groups. You playing footsie with them again, Charles, or did you make amends with your ex-buddy Barrett Brown?
Once in a while it’s kinda fun to check on the Decline of Little Green Footballs. Remember this one from 19 February 2010?
About a year later, on 9 February 2011, we posted this:
The Webworth.info site is now defunct as far as we can tell, but now there’s WEBUKA. Here’s the February 2017 estimate for LGF:
GAH! What a graphic abomination, and there’s not much we can do to fix it. On the other hand, the estimated numbers are relevant. In just six years, Charles Johnson’s website value has decreased in value by approximately 75%. So what does Alexa have to say about all this?
Since we last checked in with Alexa, it had been purchased by Amazon and a lot of the freebee stats are no longer available without a pay-to-play subscription. So what. This is all we need.
What happened in September 2016 to drive down his rank, and why did he get a bump once Trump was inaugurated? I don’t know, Babs, but I do know this: Little Green Footballs is STILL slower to load than 2/3 of all websites tracked by Alexa. Go figger.
SitePrice estimates the value of a blog differently, and comes up with this number:
It also provides a graphic of the top 5 search terms that lead to Little Green Footballs:
No real surprises in that subliminal goatse, but how does “A. J. Delgado” make it to the Top Five with only 5%? Something smells like your socks, Charles.
Little Green Footballs is at the cutting edge of website design. World renown web designer, Charles Johnson announces another technological achievement that will leave his rivals in awe!
I am sure Apple and other Tech giants will be banging on Charles’ door!
