You're Either Behind Guido's blog . . .


To say that I was completely fucking stunned when I read this post, by a previously anonymous blogger, would  probably be an understatement. Has Guido finally become a member of the establishment that, at one time, he so vehemently opposed? A hypocrite or even a media whore like Iain Dale? Could this really be true of a fellow blogger who was one of the very reasons (along with OH) that I started my own blog, to exercise my right to Freedom of Speech.

So, what does the new law that Guido so joyously announced, really mean for the long term future of anonymous bloggers? Is it, ultimately, the beginning of the end for offensive cunts like me? Has the Government unwittingly been handed a tool which will enable them to control the blogosphere?

I was beginning to think that maybe I was being a tad over sensitive to the situation just because I have a reputation for being a tad offensive from time to time. However, judging by a subsequent post here and the recent nominations for Guido here, it appears that I am not the only one beginning to have doubts.

To be honest, I really don't fucking know anymore.

You decide.

My main reason for visiting Guido's place was to read the comments (and to link-whore occasionally). The comments were, prior to his McBride fame, usually very entertaining.

Now that the place is full to the brim with all manner of loons, posting shit comments, much of the appeal has been lost.

His apparent attack on anonymous blogging is the final straw for me. I am now boycotting his place and removing it from my blog list.

I suggest we all do the same.

CryBaby said...

I agree with Gigits.

he wanted to keep himself anonymous remember?

Rab C. Nesbitt said...

I removed my link to Guido ages ago.

I was stunned when I stumbled across his post.

Quiet_Man said...

I always read the Headlines in Order-Order, but rarely the comments. In this case he was wrong, wrong, wrong to praise this authoritarian intrusion.

Barking Spider said...

As I said over at Rab's place, GOT, I used to Guido's blog regularly and a lot of the comments were really funny too, but like QM, now I just read the stories that interest me and only rarely read the comments anymore.

winston smith said...

sad to say i am a relative newcomer to the blogosphere via guido and smear mails . however i hardly read guido now as for comment section lots of hoons ! . read got/oh/eye/spider/penguin . keep up the good work people

Fausty said...

Guido's been a tad arrogant lately, trading on his reputation.

I rarely read him these days. His blog comments appear to have plummetted.

Perhaps there is a point at which one perceives popularity as a ticket to become part of the establishment.

We're probably all prone to it, but the wise tend to resist.

Edgar said...

I've already commented on this on Rab's page. Basically, Guido's a hypocritical, pretentious, supercilious cunt. Not a fucking scruple in sight and with clear far-right sympathies. Libertarian, my arse.

Old Holborn said...

Well, unlike you lot, I've met Guido on many occassions and he rings me now and again looking for stories.

Yup, it's true, he's a cunt.

But he's OUR cunt.

Remember that.

Houdini said...

Am I allowed to be smug for saying all this and pushing Shit Staines for a cunting months ago?

And OH...he used to be our cunt, now at best he is their cunt and only uses us and you, but not me for a while, as a means of wanking himself silly over what he laughingly calls stat porn.

He started off like a good intentioned politician... eventually he becomes one of them milking the system for all it is worth. Let's put it this way, NOW if he thought it was in his best interest not to run stories like the McBride emails I have no doubt he would say fuck the blogosphere and the plebs therein.

He is another side of that cunt Dale.

Gigits said...

I have stated my opinion of Guido over at Is A Cunt (I refuse to use his real name, even now, as I respect anonymity in the blogosphere, even when it has been compromised) and I don't feel inclined to repeat it here.

I love your blog Old H, but I don't see how Guido is "our cunt".

Get real
Bloggers dont count
Next year they will be history

Two all seeing eyes

Houdini said...

Point taken Gigits, though he has made himself a media whore and uses his real name now, but point taken.

Dazed and Confused said...

There was a time not so long back that Guido would have come and defended himself on a posting such as this...

Not any more???

Gigits said...

D&C: Defend himself on something like this?

No. He will only visit a blog like this when he is completely at a loss for something to post and has to fall back on bloggers actually doing something.

Old Spice said...

OH:
'Yup, it's true, he's a cunt.

But he's OUR cunt.

Remember that.'

KNOBHEAD!

Dark Lochnagar said...

I have already commented on Rab's site but defend himself? He is too busy boasting about the hits he's had last month and how much money he's making. Bloated cunt.

Dark Lochnagar said...

P.S. Anonymous, go and fuck yourself.

banned said...

Somewhere out there is a someone wondering where to blow his/her whistle, Order-Order has had sufficient MSM coverage to make him the obvious choice and for this Guido provides a worthwhile service even if it is a bit rubbish at the moment.

HeadsonPoles said...

Like others, I mainly read headlines and look for the funnies in a caption competition.
He does seem to be quite concerned about how many hits he gets (and with it advertising?) rather than good stories.
Maybe something happened to make him change his ways.
Still, as I don't have to pay a tax for it (unlike the BBC) I can take it or leave it - it's his blog and he can do what he wants with it, if you don't like it, don't go there I suppose.

Gigits said...

This could be the start of a civil war in the blogosphere.

Or, it could be some pointless drunken comments (mine were) :-)

G.O.T. said...

This could be the start of a civil war in the blogosphere

To be honest Gigs it really wasn't my intention and, as someone has already suggested, if you don't like a blog then don't fucking go there. Fair comment.

What's still giving me a head fuck is that a previously anonymous blogger is championing an 'authoritarian action', which has now given the Government carte twatting blanche, to serve writs on whoever they feel like fucking the fuck off in the run up to the next election.

Or am I the only offensive, foul mouthed, Labour hating cunt who gives a flying fuck about this?

banned said...

How, exactly do you serve a " Twitter Writ " on an anonymous someone ?
Can you make them pay, or retract ? Pistols at dawn seem more realistic.
It's all bollox really.
Anyway, anyone whos disagrees with me on this one is a complete puffy retard whose arse should burn in HELL.

Kinderling said...

Blogging is about attitudes, thought-crimes.

Jesus almost starved himself to death to get rid of his Jewish imprint from Cradle-to-Grave. Same route for any Muslim any Homosexual any NuLabourist.
Dying to the ego-hypnosis from childhood.

Now a Judas (always the money) believes an impersonator can out-win the original.

My blog cannot be copied because they cannot think and write like me.

It is only the bland that can be copied, because they live lives as a copy, who have this to fear.

Bring On The Revolution said...

I nominate Blair, Brown and Mandelson as a trio of complete total and utter leftie, socialist and communist, Europhile and Islamophile CUNTS. How dare they fucking sell us off to EUSSR without even giving us a vote (which they promised us) on the matter. Fucking lying, mendacious cunts, I'm so fucking angry I could explode, hang them high for treason!!

Anonymous said...

What an arrogant tosser Old Holborns becoming these days. Stat whoring, name dropping arsehole, sanctimoniously preaching to the underlings about his proximity to the in crowd. Wow we're impressed. On the many "occasions" you've met Heir Guido didn't you think to carry a dictionary you patronising cunt?

Anonymous said...

Many people have dumped Old Holburn since his faux outrage at Obo and hissy fit where the cunt said he was giving up blogging...but of course he didn't.

He's another fucking media whore now.

Love you too Anon.
