Sad Times at Little Green Footballs High

As tanking traffic, revenues and interest metastasize at the once proud but now flaccid Little Green Footballs, czarina Charles ("I'm writing as bad as I can") Johnson takes time out from slander and libel and Christian bashing to post a "News Item" that begs his dwindling clutch of hatchlings to buy their Halloween costumes and candy from his Amazon links:

Gedankenexperiment: Identify the surviving LGF posters in this image.

I can't wait to see the shape of his begging bowl when Christmas rolls around.

That Native American costume is a vile, racist stereotype!

Charles was such a staunch friend in the war against terrorism and in his focus on media dishonesty. I'm still trying to figure out what happened to him to make him go completely off the rails that way. He must be feeling some pretty overwhelming internal pressures there.

I was never on LGF at the right time to sign up for posting privileges, I guess I just don't take my commenting responsibilities seriously enough or something. That said, I would visit over there a couple of times a day for several years. Gradually it became kinda, I don't know what, just odd. The religious rants, the enemies list, the j'accuse!! It just wasn't fun anymore. It felt like my lurking really WAS lurking in the worst sort of way, watching people being attacked for holding opinions that weren't allowed by the blog admin. Which gave me zero incentive to try and sign up and start commenting.

Since there are billions and billions of blogs, I've been plenty busy spending unproductive time online. Still, the whole thing just seems so unnecessary and so very sad.

I, like many, got banned, it matters not why, but the nicks for Mr. Shrinkage keep piling up. Cankles and Nancy are two of the more apt monikers, but you, Gerard have the bestiest, as always.

I was at LGF before registration was required but was never part of the in-crowd. This is like knowing you shouldn't go to your high school reunion but you do anyway then you come home and are filled with an unutterable sadness for what once was.

Then you realize NCIS is on and life is good again.
