Cato Speaks

A little “birdy” sent us this letter that Cato sent Charles. It has been authenticated.

So, let me get this straight, Charles:

On the say-so of a “little birdy” [sic] who likes to stalk stalkers, you decide to publicly chastise a long-time former poster for supposedly commenting on a site that lives to mock you.

For this you have zero evidence, other than your will to be aggrieved.

That poster writes to you to clear up a matter that never needed to be aired publicly and to which he cannot publicly respond, and dares to be even mildly exasperated with the situation.

You then issue a butthurt non-apology while whining about “digs” against your goodself.

Whom does that remind one of? Oh, say, maybe…Sarah “I’m the Victim Here” Palin?

And the pathetic sycophant Dark Falcon allows how terrible it is for you to have to endure “cheap shots”. Poor Mr. Johnson.

Honestly, you should be flattered that you are prominent enough, with your weak-tea attempts at punditry on TPM, to merit a parody site of your very own.  Enjoy it while it lasts.

After all this, some might understand if I were to actually “go stalker” and become your sworn enemy. Let me assure you: should that ever happen, it will be under my own proper name and LGF handle, and you will be the first to know of it.

You would probably thrive on that, but sadly, you are just not a big enough target to waste the slings and arrows on.

DoDleaks: (Original) Snapshot of an LOIC Attack

Remember that supposed DDOS attack on LGF from a few weeks back?  (we put up a couple of threads about it, too.  See here and here).  It seemed to occupy the swamp for the better part of the day, and while the speculations were flying,  the Grand Lizard climbed out from under the hood of the Little Green Machine and posted a thread that claimed to contain a snapshot of LGF’s error_log:

Now, I’ll admit that I don’t know what to make of all that, and all those dates and IP addys don’t really interest me that much.

What is interesting, however, is the fact that we were provided evidence from someone of very high status within the lizard kingdom that the image posted there is actually an altered version of the error log.  

Again, I don’t know what it means or why it would have been altered, so if anyone cares to shed light on that, the original version is here, and the new altered version that appears on the site today is here.

And, in the spirit of visual aids and document analysis on LGF, The Boiler Room has provided a “throbbing memo“.

Update:  It appears that CJ spent some time on this, and was torn on what should appear on the front page for his thread, as we have it that there was another “blurred” version of this image that was out there at one point.  Here it is.   The throbbing memo for this one:
