OK, I’ve noticed that it has been this way for a while, but I thought I’d make sure that it wasn’t just me. So, I’m going to ask you guys/gals to help me out here.
To my knowledge, no announcement has been made, but it appears that the current visibility status of LGF (something that has changed periodically, presumably on CJ’s whim) is as follows:
- Front page thread comments pre-2009 (?) are not visible to unregistered readers
- LGF Pages’ comments are not visible to unregistered readers
To make sure that I’m not the only one affected, please follow this redirect to Ludwig’s famous “slut shaming” page and tell me if you see comments (there should be quite a few of them)*:
Assuming it’s not just me, I’m going to go ahead and guess that 1 is by design (done out of cowardice and fear of us), but 2 is a glitch that CJ isn’t aware of. After all, you’d think that the Grand Lizardoid would have told the minions that all these LGF Pages that they pour their hearts into are all really seekrit threads? Otherwise, that would seem strange.
Again, if I’m wrong on this, please say so in the comments here. CJ has been known to get clever with his IP blocking and react quickly to what gets posted here. If it really is by design and is going to stay that way, well, I suppose we should all give them a round of applause and congratulate them on their new hall of echo chambers (literally).
*With Ludwig’s return, I just couldn’t pass up the chance to post that up again.
Update: We have received confirmation that the comments have been turned back on!
Perhaps CJ didn’t like the fact that I put that poll up there, or maybe he really just likes us….way deep down. I dunno. But it’s funny.
Update: Off again! LOL

A Seekrit Thread appeared tonight, first one in over a year, and it came with this bizarre gem from our good friends Irenicum and Cato:

re: #475 Cato the Elder
When I joined, a little over a year ago, it was during the “great changeover” in a manner of speaking. I joined precisely b/c of Charles’ speaking out against the wingnut right. But b/c I pretty early on was quite open about being Christian, and an evangelical at that, I think there was some hesitancy about whether I might flounce over the creationism threads or the gay issue. But since i accept evolutionary biology with no problem (always have really), and accept equality as an American ideal, no matter who you are, black/white, gay/straight, whatever, I’ve become a lizard in good standing.
Trust is earned, not given easily.
Charles has been burned by those who say they’re on his side, when in fact they’ve got an agenda that is more important to them than being a good lizard. Do I have views that diverge from other lizards? Of course I do. Do I have views that differ from Charles? Again, of course I do. The issue is one of not giving in to conspiracy theories or hatred of anything “other” than myself. This venue, Little Green Footballs, is one of the few that I’ve seen where I’ve felt like I can speak my mind freely, knowing I might be disagreed with, but also knowing that I’ll be listened to, as long as I listen too. That’s what makes this site so unique in my mind. Needless to say, I love it and am glad to be a part of this diverse conversation. And with that, I really am heading over the range. See y’all later.
People are definitely passing around the pisspipe over at The Village. I can smell the vapors from here.
