Krazy Kagu Outed: He Is Spurwing Plover

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 12:00 am

(Inside baseball blogball follows.)

Those of you who read the comments have no doubt noticed an occasional commenter by the name of “krazy kagu.” krazy kagu has a rather unique way of expressing himself, as shown by the last six comments he has left on this blog, in reverse chronological order:

Hey GREENPEACE why dont they go to north korea and oppose this and what about HANOI JANE,JIMMY CARTER and all those idiots in their sandles go over there and declare a nucular weapons free zone if you liberal wussies have the gumption why dont you go over there and oppose this THE REASON IS THAT THEY WOULD PROBIBLY END UP BARRED FROM ENTERING and GREENPEACE would end up lying dead

10/10/2006 @ 6:42 am:

The New York Slimes our most far left news paper and by far the american equililent to the defunct USSR paper PRAVDA

10/10/2006 @ 6:39 am:

More from the SMELL A TIMES and its leftists babbling from these miserble reptiles this paper isnt worth reading at all

(He really doesn’t like the L.A. Times and invariably refers to it as the SMELL A TIMES, which I find curiously endearing. Moving on . . .)

10/7/2006 @ 11:54 am:

Liberals are this way at times they try and silence all those who dont agree with their radical ideas

10/6/2006 @ 8:53 pm:

It will still be the usial lying liberal leftists rag ite always has been nothing will change with the SMELL A TIMES

10/4/2006 @ 1:18 pm:

More manure from the infamous SMELL A TIMES dose the stink make you gag?

Heh. It sure does, krazy kagu. It sure does.

So anyway, I was talking to See Dubya last night and he was shocked that I didn’t realize who krazy kagu is. Didn’t I realize that a kagu is a kind of bird?

So . . . you mean . . .

That’s right. krazy kagu is spurwing plover.

spurwing plover is a regular Ace of Spades commenter who comments in the style of krazy kagu. It is no coincidence that a plover is (like a kagu) a kind of bird. spurwing plover is the person whom Ace of Spades once described as a “mysterious, enigmatic commenter.” Banned at Wizbang, you can find an explanation of his writing style here. ace was so taken with spurwing plover that he wrote an entire Wikipedia entry about him. I think the entry was in existence for about 24 minutes before an alert Wikipedian zapped it, just like they do with any new entry.

The same individual has shown up at Xrlq’s site, TigerHawk, Retired Geezer’s blog, Murdoc Online, PoliPundit, The Nose on Your Face, Conservative Thinking, and The Conservative Mindcleaner — just to name a few. He has also appeared in various other incarnations at other blogs, always using a bird-related pseudonym. He is benny bird at WuzzaDem, and firebird at Cold Fury. Not only do these commenters share ornithological names and a . . . unique writing style, they all bear the same e-mail address.

spurwing plover has been mentioned on this blog as well — ironically enough, in a post about sock puppets titled Song of Myself: Lee Siegel, Michael Hiltzik, and Rick Ellensburg. In that post, a commenter named VekTor suggested that I implement a PHP code that supposedly puts a “fingerprint” on commenters’ posts, to prevent sock puppetry in the comments. Commenter Pixy Misa replied:

VekTor – and yet, we still don’t know who Spurwing Plover is.

Yes, we do, Pixy Misa. Yes, we do.

spurwing plover is krazy kagu.

  1. i had noticed krazy kagu, but i just assumed he was one of the random incoherent idiots you seem to attract. good luck getting rid of him now that you’ve given him headline space.

  2. I’ve never minded kagu although he seems rather… crazy.

    I hope he’s not banned for that!

    If he consistently posts here under one name… what does it matter if he posts consistently under a totally different name at another blog?

    On another blog, I’m LeatherMaster… it just seems to work there.

  9. “krazy kagu has a rather unique way of expressing himself”-Patterico

    I’ve got to say, P, that bad spelling, grammar, punctuation, and taste are in no way “unique” to krazy kagu. There are plenty of people with the same…handicaps, it’s just that this one frequents your site. I can’t remember the last time he had something meaningful (or coherent) to say.

  10. He’s also gone by “BIRDZILLA” and “bird of paradise” at my place.

    I’ve got to say, P, that bad spelling, grammar, punctuation, and taste are in no way “unique” to krazy kagu.

    Ah, but there is so, so much more to the K-man (or B-man, or whatever).

    I can’t remember the last time he had something meaningful (or coherent) to say.

    Layers, sir – layers. You’re just seeing the surface.

  11. Think It’s Wrong For Bloggers to “Out” People? Then Don’t Read This Post…

    Sorry, I’ve tried to ignore this, but my conscience won’t allow it any more. I know the person I’m about to expose won’t understand this right now, but I’m doing it for his own good. I truly believe he’ll be…

  12. Thank you for the link to Wikipedia.
    I would be “krazy” too, if my tropical paradise was disrupted by rats and ferrel cats…

  13. Thanks for the link. I guess I had the only known *photo*.

  14. Feel free to link me to a revelation, John.

    If it walks like an idiot and talks like an idiot, it’s probably an idiot.

    Leviticus (43095b)

  15. Leviticus,

    Your office called. They found your sense of humor.

    BrewFan (568d6d)

  16. I am going to have to go with.. “who gives a shit”.

    AndrewGurn (8a0c5d)

  17. We know who spurwing is. We know where he lives. We know how old he is. But with all this knowledge, we still have no understanding of what or why he is.

    geoff (973994)

  18. You rotten bastard — you’ve shot Bambi ;->

    Purple Avenger (3ecb55)

  19. The power and the wisdom of the Spurwing is unbounded by rules of grammar, spelling etc.
    It will be a mistake to ban him. At Ace of Spades HQ, we have welcomed him, and he is the most liked commenter at AoS.

    Tushar D (0fe544)

  20. Ahhhhh….

    BIRDZILLA is also a regular over at Right Wing News.

    A rather incoherent regular.

    N. O'Brain (9056e2)

  21. Spurwing is Karl Rove’s undercover operative to the blogosphere. Underestimate the Plover at your peril.
