  1. wow. You appear on Protein Wisdom, which is feuding with Patterico over comments made by another blogger. You are allowed to remain on LGF, despite the fact PW is a banned site by the Mad Lizard King for being a conservative site. Now Patterico is banned for pointing out LGF's mendacity.

    Kinda weird, huh?
