Gus. We’re rooting for you.  PLEASE do a weekly podcast.

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].

Our Gus Is An Awesome Gus – Part II

El Gusano takes a stroll down Memory Lane.

Hunh.


Meanwhile, Charles Johnson is sputtering about Charles Johnson.

Charles is sure making a dent in something.


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.

Just Another Day for Gusano.

Gus has a thang going on and somehow he’s Tweeted to thousands, follows thousands, and thousands follow him since he joined Twitter in January 2011. Let’s break this down.

Let’s assume Gus joined Twitter on 31 January 2011. Between that date and 17 July 2017, Gus posted 449,000 Tweets according to his own Twitter Account. That’s about 2,490 days according to this calculator.

Now let’s run the math. 450k Tweets / 2,490 days = 180 Tweets per Day. Assuming a 4 hour Twitterday, that works out to an astounding rate of approximately 45 Tweets per hour average, and it includes the two times he claimed to have quit Twitter.

If Gus is indeed following 3,450 as his Twitterfeed claims, that means he’s reading over 860 Tweets Per Hour. Dude’s amazing.

It’s no secret that Gus is unemployed. He turned down three legitimate offers, and this blog offered to help him out with his medical expenses via a PayPal account. He declined all assistance and chose to gripe instead. So what are those little retweeted things on the lower left of his Twitter homepage? I dunno, Babs, but I do know this. Gus seems to take pride in it.

Gusano, you’re almost as entertaining as Charles Johnson.


Happy New Year!
