The Pre-Banned List – A Retrospective (and Gus_802 is a liar).

So El Gusano Pobre complains about being blocked by people “who I never even interacted with.” Hunh.

A quick search through the BRC Archives suggests Gusano may be telling the truth, but he had access to one and he certainly used it. More than one account on that list whose owners never Tweeted to @Gus_802 were instantly blocked from reading his Tweets directly. Did he keep a block list? No. He kept the link and undoubtedly contributed to it.

That list of Twitter accounts was compiled by Furious Burkha in 2012, and comprised those contrarians she deemed unworthy, their followers, and those they followed. With a bigoted algorithm like that I’m amazed that the list didn’t morph into thousands, but then again, she was never the sharpest bulb in the LGF Crayon Box.

Here’s the Pre-Banned List in full regalia [or click here].

El Gusano’s Medical Fund

A momentary flash of lucid self-reflection. But he did just retweet one of his patrons’ tweets calling for donations to his Sterno-fund.

Gus, the Architectural exams are tough to pass for a reason (public health and safety) but the medical exams are even tougher for the same reasons. Thank God you’re not a doctor, otherwise all your patients would be like:

Good luck on your GoFundMe foray and we wish you well. We chipped in.

Q:  Did your buddy Charles Johnson pitch in?
A:  Nope.

Gus_802 Sets Twitter/Comment Record(?) Then Blows Chunks All Day

Mr. Prolific may have set a new record in manic Tweeting and commenting on Little Green Footballs. Y’all know who we’re talmbout. Gus. Gus_802. THE GUS.

THE GUS who spills his life story on LGF and Twitter, who supplanted Sharmuta, Irish Rose, LVQ and Kilgore Trout. The guy who was evicted from his apartment in San Diego, moved in with his sister in Los Angeles. The guy whose sister threw him out of her place, and who complained that his family wouldn’t give him any money. The guy who moved to Denver and complained that his roommate put up visqueen between his side of the hovel and the other because Gus wasn’t chipping in for the heating bills. The guy who turned down legitimate job offers by yours truly and others.

THAT GUS. Hell, we even have a category for him. @Gus_802.

So back to the topic. Here’s an unemployed guy sitting around in a slum pad in Denver feeling sorry for himself, turning down legitimate job offers and bitching about his lot in life, so The Boiler Room Crew took a peek.

(Yeah, we stalked Gus_802 for 12 hours, but it only took us 20 minutes.)

Before we get to the meat of this post, here’s a fun challenge. Guess how much time Gus_802 spent tweeting and commenting on Little Green Footballs in this 12-hour period.  Better yet, guess his posting frequency. Even better, guess how many comments and tweets Gus_802 cranked out in a mere 12 hours. Take your time, give it your best shot. The answer is below the break. Read the rest of this entry »


The GOP = Turds Posted on LGF as “Humor”

Earlier we noticed a disturbance in The Swamp. Seems that El Gusano had a problem with an LGF Page created by Jimmah/Ice Productions. Here’s the page in question:

That steaming pile of wit was filed under the LGF sub-heading “Humor,” and at least two other Lizards thought that it was clever enough to upding it.  Here’s the “Full article” that Jimmah linked to: Read the rest of this entry »
