This is the first of a series of at least 1 year end statistics post to be published during the next several days. This one focuses on changes to the LGF all-time commenter rankings. For the first time since January 2009, when MandyManners passed the already banned babbazee to assume the top spot, there is a new record holder. Around December 19th, Gus 802 surpassed MM and now squats alone atop the commenter pile, littered such as it is with the bodies of 16000 blocked accounts. The current top 20 all-time posters are:
A couple of things of note:
- Charles is rocketing up the list, 16th (2012) to 13th (2013) to 9th.
- Alouette is headed for the top 10 having come up from 59th (2012) to 22nd (2013) to 14th.
- Leaving the top 20 this year was Walter L. Newton, slipping off the list from 19th last year.
Ah yes, this was a thread vanishing event (or TVE, for future reference) from back in ’07, while I was a lizard in good standing and active. I don’t think I said anything about it at the time, but I remember that others witnessed the event, and threw their hands in the air:
This was the url of the thread in question:
Looking back at the anecdotal evidence (again, thanks to CJ for opening up the old comments), it is obvious that this thread wasn’t live for too long (maybe an hour?). And courtesy of our talented “little birdy”, we have resurrected this gem from the bowels of the memory hole:
As I remember it, there were quite a few lizards asking about why this particular thread got tossed, and eventually CJ succumbed and gave an explanation:
Oh… just another LGF oopsy. Instead of issuing an update or correction, CJ decided to pitch this one down the chute. A pretty weak move (again), but hey, at least this one didn’t involve another misidentification of a state flag. (speaking of that, can you believe that Fat Bastard Vegetarian actually praised CJ for being a dipshit and scrubbing that OH flag thread!)
And by the way, what goes good with strawberries? 8)
Moving forward with the series, featuring comments ranked higher than CJ’s all-time high of 69…
Electrocution Warning to Lizard Lurkers: The karma you are about to see is at a level that is well beyond your wildest upding fantasies (given the haggard state of LGF), so try not to get any drool or spooge on your laptop, OK? Diary of Daedalus is NOT RESPONSIBLE for any injuries which may result (directly or indirectly) from viewing the following karma score.
Early 2009 seems to be the golden age for LGF karma:

All-time karma placement: 4th (Tx2)
Worth noting: Nil and the Boiler Room crew found that MandyManners used a variation of this sentence in 51 posts spread over about 15 months, resulting in a cumulative karma of 1270! However, the karma did appear to decline over those months, as indicated by this graph (we like graphs):
A friend and member of The Blogmocracy asked that I post this on behalf of Mandy Manners who got the stick today. The intelligence quotient of LGF just dropped by 40% or so.
The Great Purge is now complete… except for me and my socks.
Mandy Manners calls out the Jazz Man for his bashing of Tennessee. She pointed out his hypocrisy and in typical manner, he bans her!
Here is the exchange:
Here is the Jazz Man pissing on her grave.
Mandy you’re welcomed at the Blogmocracy, Come on over!
