THE QUESTIONING OF Johnson’s tactics started to come not just from without L.G.F. but also from within. ... Johnson insists that ... no one has ever been banned from L.G.F. merely for disagreeing with him — but the anecdotal evidence to the contrary is voluminous, and the fact that the offending comments were instantly and permanently deleted makes it impossible to check others’ records against his.AND:
Comment threads all over the blogosphere were hijacked by people sharing stories of their banishment. Another stalker blog — this one assailing Johnson from the right — sprang up, administered by banned former “Lizards,” as L.G.F.’s registrants are known. Johnson responded by posting those former registrants’ real names and photographs on L.G.F. — an astounding breach of civility on the Internet, where anonymity is often prized above all else.
This sucks. Credite experto. (For the benefit of Charles, that means "Trust him who knows." Firsthand.)
Most hilariously of all, a quote from Trelayne his own self:
“I don’t know why things can’t just stay on the level of the factual,” he said. “I don’t know why everything has to have a slant. I mean, The New York Times has a slant, and in the past I’ve called them out for that.” He sighed. “I miss the days of Walter Cronkite.”In other words, Trelayne is every bit as thin skinned a whiner as we thought.
And he views as his hero a Communist sympathizer who helped turn Southeast Asia over to the North Vietnames Army, Pol Pot, and their killer minions.
The Squire has this to say about NYT's account:
I have a few significant disagreements with the angle taken by Jonathan Dee in his profile for the New York Times, most of all his willingness to accept unverifiable anecdotal information from people who post comments on the Internet under fake names, to claim that their LGF accounts were blocked simply for disagreeing with me — a claim which, in the vast majority of cases, is simply not true.I am Richard L. Kent, Esq. I am attorney in Eastpointe, Michigan. I work at a law office at 22815 Kelly Road, Eastpointe, Michigan, 48021-2073. My phone number is 586 202 6170. I'm making this public because Charles and his mob of diseased flying monkey maniacs outed me when I dared to challenge his bad behavior, and when they put my personal information on his blog, he didn't bother to delete it.... thereby making him a party to their calls to get me fired. (Fortunately I'm self employed, and my boss just loves me unreservedly.)
I post my real contact information since it is a matter of public record and can be verified by anyone willing to spend five minutes on the Web trying to track me down. Besides, Charles himself allowed it to be posted to his blog.
And I'm here to say so because the fact that people's LGF accounts were blocked simply for disagreeing with him is absolutely true. I have seen it. And I say so under my own name.
It didn't quite happen to me personally because I resigned his blog first. But, after I resigned, he then outed me, revealing my personal information to the world in gross violation of the trust given him, in the same way that he outed those now running "Blogmocracy 2.0." aka LGF2. (The fact that one of those he outed, LGF2 flounder "Rodan" is a vile, genocide cheerleading hate-punk, doesn't change the fact that Charles absolutely shoudna done what he did.... i.e., using information from his donor page(!) to track down and out those who diss him.)
But I am here to tell you that Charles' whines about those he has banned are the whines of someone who is guilty as charged.
GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY!
And if he doesn't like my saying so he can go screw himself.
