    Anyone that has spent any time at all on local message boards knows the identity of LJ, LJohn, and Leawood John. They also know him to be a ridiculous whiner who has been from most of the boards at one time or another. The guy has had more epic meltdowns than you have columns featuring Stan Glazer (ok, maybe not that many)

    As much as I love to beat up on LJ, this is a ridiculously bad article. I know it is the internet, but some basic procedures still apply. Generally if a major piece of your article is going to be about a website, you should make sure you get the address correct. KCforum.com is a parking site for Microsoft. KCForum,net and KCTalk,com are both websites LJ has frequented. He has over 3000 posts on both sites. It would have taken you know time at all to find any of the statements Nick Orange was alluding to.

    A great number of LJ’s meltdowns have been about people giving away his identity. I have usually sided against him. He might have a point here. Did you really just post a map to the guy’s house? Not sure that was necessary.

    I have no respect for the guy, but you can’t write an article about how he crosses the line and runs with bad facts while doing the same.

    Hearne, I have no idea why you are so jealous of me, but this is really getting ridiculous.
    Yes, I laughed (and often cringed) when your former co-workers trashed you on your own site. It is obvious you were not very well-liked or respected by them, but that is no great secret.
    However, you saying that you traced my IP address to anything posted is absolute and total bullshit. I never wrote one word on your site.
    In other words, the basis of your entire story and all the quotes you attributed to me are WRONG. I am embarrassed for you.
    A person with class would apologize for this total screw-up and for accusing me wrongly, but I won’t hold my breath.
    Honestly, you should be ashamed (if that is possible). Damn.
    I make mistakes on my site and apologize for them. It is your turn.

    One thing you both have in common are websites that need a lot of work. Not necessarily in content but in design and usability. Good god.

    I agree kctacomonday. This site isn’t spectacular but it’s not that bad. But Bottom Line’s is really bad. For a PR firm especially.

    There’s another ditty.

    Seriously dude, just going by your website, I wouldn’t let you do PR for my dog, and because he chews on stuff and craps outside, he needs some good PR.

    (sorry for the double post)

    Lauren wants to know why this Landsberg creep isn’t just kicked off the site permanently. Do it! Landsberg also mis-reported the condition of the late Richard Fatherley, claiming he had been dismissed from KU Med, as if he walked out the door, when actually he was transferred to Providence, in a coma, where he later died 3 weeks later.

    I was at a seedy bar last night and I overheard John say something like “I’ll show Hearne what it means to give someone s*it” He then went on to explain this elaborate plan to destroy your sewage system. Hearne be careful flushing. This is one bad dude. I got you and Hutch’s back. But hook me up with a pimp hat.

    Here are some choice remarks posted by John Landsberg on http://www.kcforum.net that perfectly display his petty, self-absorbed, confused sense of relevance to the world. You can read more of this dweeb’s defensive, whiny, obnoxious remarks on KCForum under the screen name Leawood John. Examples:

    “I’ve hosted radio shows and been a guest on a number of them. Heck, I was on Darla Jaye a few weeks ago and the ratings are considerably higher than 610 has ever received. I’m a damn media expert. What can I say?”

    “My site gets far more traffic than this one does and is read by a much better audience.”

    hearne…be careful. There are some real
    strange laws out there about writing and
    putting a guys address out for the public
    to see. There are also some strict internet
    laws that could cause you problems…
    You have to be careful because this guy might
    press some charges/lawsuit against you for
    this kind of stuff.
    Not a lawyer but we don’t think you’ll look
    good in an orange jumpsuit. take care

    Oh this is RICH! Good job, Hearne. Lay it all out there on this douchebag. Bottomlinecom.com is about the ugliest website I’ve seen. Its worse than the KC Star’s! and its supposedly a media communications firm. Ha! I’d say ‘Hearne’s Former Editor’ has got some ‘splaining to do!

    Nice work Hearne. Considering that the entire Star is down to a five minute read on a good day, I need some entertainment and local gossip. Keep this pissing match going, as it is a great read.

    Is anyone else disturbed in the slightest that Hearne is perfectly willing to post anonymous users IP addresses for sh*ts and grins? Seems pretty low brow on Hearne’s part – despite anything this obvious douch-nozzle has done.

    If you can’t handle the comments on your anonymous message board – disable the comments section. Or, require real, full names to comment. You can’t have it both ways.

    Or – you could man-up and deal with it. Or, be like Glazer and respond to every criticism with a bet for $1,000. That’ll show him.

    Landsberg was and is the wormiest of braggadocio cowards. He should have been ‘outed’.

    I’ll say this for LJ – he gets ripped like chubby, oily altar boy on a Vatican camping trip, but he keeps coming back.

    Hearne’s skin is thinner than an Albino Vampire.

    They look to be about the same age. I’ll bet they once got into a slap fight in their teens.

    My oh my is this interesting. Kudos to Hearne for doing what he does best: delivering a little controversy to an otherwise boring and pathetic KC “media” scene. I find myself visiting both bottomlines and kcconfidential for the same reasons, to see where people are fucking up and to get a bit of cheap thrills / intrigue about media-related personalities.

    Let’s face it, aside from some lame comedy from Kelly and sports stuff from Greg (also mostly about radio personality rivalries) there really isn’t much here for the average reader. This site really should be more open about what it is: watching the Star fade and petty in-fighting among KC’s fifty-something media crowd.

    And honestly, I think it only has legs for so much longer.

    At this point I think we need some REAL action to hold us readers’ attention. I propose to all of you readers and trolls a little poll about what should happen next in this classic saga of what TonysKansasCity calls “Blogger Beef!”

    To settle the score once and for all, John Lansberg and Hearne Christopher Junior should…

    (drumroll por favor!)

    a) mud wrestle, with Tony as a referee/photog
    b) have a classic duel with pistols or sabers
    c) camp outside the Star building and see who can report the next Star layoff with maximum hand-wringing or sarcasm
    d) a kiss and make-up session in the Jardie’s or cafe trio parking lot
    e) other (you submit your own ideas here)

    I think any one of these things would really take this catfight to the next level. We readers deserve more than this. Tony, maybe you can officiate the poll.

    Let the games begin!
