Yes, we’re calling for Nominations for the 2012 LGF Inanity Awards. There were so many categories to choose from and so much idiocy that it’s difficult to select the best and worst of the past year. That’s where we need your help.
Here are the categories for nominations.
THE BUZZSAW AWARD
There haven’t been many flounces since Charles binged and purged all over his Culver City beltline, but there have been a few. Cut and paste ’em, just to keep this Award active, fit, fun and fancy free.
THE IRISH ROSE AWARD
This prize is awarded only to the high-caliber SwampSuckers. An occasional “I’m Sorry Charles, I was brain-dead and didn’t mean to step on your fucking hidden eggshells” type comment just doesn’t make the nut. This award is for those who know exactly where the eggshells are and apply the appropriate suckage when Charles demands it.
THE JOHNSON AWARD
This Award is the toughest one of all. What was Charles’ biggest blowsit this year? Too many to count. Ever since Charles discovered Twitter, his idiocy has multiplied by a factor of stupid. Pick and flick your favorite five Charlie J witticisms from 2012 and maybe we’ll do something with them.
THE MILYO AWARD
The MILYO is a new Award reserved for those who deserve recognition for smacking Charles from Beyond the Valley of Diary of Daedalus. There were many who stepped down to the plate, and the MILYO Award may or may not recognize all of them.
Post your nominations in the comments section, or email them to the admins with screenshots, and we’ll have a vote next weekend.
Penis Penis Penis Lol.
[UPDATE: The Polls open on Saturday 5 January and shall remain open through Saturday 12 January 2013.]
Briarius :Next three to call out a 3-digit number get the next thread dedicated to you. We’ll take an average of the three for an LGF screencap, no matter who posted or what it’s about. GO.
Tough crowd tonight.
(666 + 629 + 256) / 3 = 517
A blindfolded wad of arbitrary thrown at the Swamp Dartboard produced this wonderfullness posted by a long-term lizard in good standing, complete with sarctag:
Yeah, voting fraud is funny, especially if the disenfranchised voter is in the all-volunteer US Military.
‘Scuse me, but I’ve gotta go take an ausador.

PART 3 – THE BANNINGS
Every blogger, regardless of the size or popularity of his/her blog, eventually will have to deal with a troll. It’s no fun when someone shows up with the intent to irritate everyone.

No one would claim that Charles Johnson never banned anyone from trolling on LGF. Indeed one unpopular commenter was banned in April of 2005 for his/her continual “baiting” of other posters, often creating an incredibly hostile atmosphere. In addition, there were some posters who for one reason or another went overboard (especially when discussing Islam and the Middle East) and were told that they might be happier elsewhere. Fair enough.
Another week, and another incredible display of suck efficiency from one “PublicityStunted”. When it comes to hunting down the comments and clicking the “+” to give karma to the Johnson, this one is in his/her own league. Even more impressive is the fact that PS did it on a lot more Lizardoid comments (105, vs last week’s 68):
And for the spreadsheet challenged…
Honorable mention for this week would be “zora”, who quadrupled her upding count (and nearly tripled her suck efficiency).
In previous threads, Boiler Room engineers were able to provide statistics on which lizards have been receiving the most “karma”. Traditionally, the top karma/post is an honor that Johnson enjoys (last week he was running an 8 upding average), so we thought it might be interesting to find out who’s been doing the updinging, and clicking their way up the Grand Lizardoid’s backside.
Well, the results are in, and what we found might surprise everyone. The sycophancy was high all around, of course, but no other lizard even came close to the winner. Engineer #3 offers the summary:
For the W/E 4/30/2011…
Between articles 38440 thru 38478:
- CJ posted 68 comments which received at least +3 net karma
- These 68 comments netted him +724 karma, from 109 dingers
- However, two-thirds of it came from only 25 sycophants
- And half of it came from the 15 most obsequious
- And one Majestic Vortex of SUCK outclassed the field, managing to upding 80% of CJ’s pronouncements.
Names and numbers are in the attached Excel File. (Try and guess before peeking.)
Update: For the spreadsheet-challenged, here’s the list of the top 25 suckups, who also happen to comprise the double-digit suckups for the week:
