Commander Butthurt retains #1 lulz generator title











by Brown Nose the Pirate
Troll at Large

Year in, year out, no one in the shortwave pirate radio hobby generates lulz at his own expense quite like Pat Murphy and his falter ego Commander Bunny of baby monitor radio powerhutch WBNY.

April Fools Day 2013 was no exception, other than providing an exceptional example of the Lagomurph's knack for snitching dual fail where most fail addicts would be satisfied with one.

Despite months of slacking off, your friendly neighborhood troll-bloggers here at Radio Paranoia sobered up just long enough last week to slap together a transparently obvious April Fools Day prank post.  Mostly it was just our way of saying "Yes, we're still alive and occasionally sober."  It wasn't our best effort at trolling, and we certainly didn't expect the Lagomurph to swallow like a Thai ladyboy.  But ya gotta admire his enthusiasm.

Too subtle?

After swallowing like the AVN for Best Oral was at stake, Commander Butthurt not only hacked up a hareball on his own blarg, he also managed to pull a deuce out of his butt and immediately took a giant "Welcome home, suckers!" dump in the newly revived FRN.  Apparently the Lagomurph hadn't taken a crap since the annual Ides of March FRN shutdown and was so full of Murphy he exploded on the FRN.  Fortunately the place is a ghost town and nobody got tagged with any spatter.

Watch your step, kids, it's foul going between the piles of cecotropes under his Murphy nom de guerre, and under his Commander Bunny nom-nom-nom de hare.

The timing couldn't have been lulzier.  The FRN came back online April 2.  We thank John Cruzan and hope he had a restful respite in the arms of Eris.

Screencaps provided so you don't need to visit the WBNY blarg, or the FRN - although the latter is such a ghost town now it's easier to find the few posts from the handful of the faithful, bless 'em (not a dig at you fellows, honest).  So far Murphy is using only the CB radio alias and hasn't activated his sock drawer army... yet.



Murphy takes an April Turd dump on the FRN.
This pile of poop was later wiped clean.




Commander Buttmunches on a fresh pile of cecotropes.


Your butthurt only makes us stronger.

  1. Good thing you saved the page from the FRN Guise, the thread was removed this morning and had a 2nd response before disappearing.

    To the FRN Admn:

    Why don't you guys just own the fact that in the past 2yrs. you've had to delete more of Pat's stupid bullshit post than anyone else. You do realize your loyalty to Mike is coming at a price, right?

  2. Murphy probably deleted his own rant on the FRN after the penny finally dropped that he was blowing a gasket over an April Fools prank.

  3. Murphy could never see the humor in anything unless it's directed at someone else-- and usually it has to involve homosexuality or child molestation, because his sense of humor never seemed to have developed beyond the anal stage.

  4. It may be that cosmik deleted Pat's rant on the FRN. I'm sure he recognizes that the FRN has sunk to new lows in participation. Allowing Murphy to continue to let his vendettas spill over into the FRN just drives more people away. In the past he's gotten rid of rants by kracker and even JTA, so this is entirely possible.

  5. I am amazed that Commander Bunny hasn't found a way to blame Poet for Margaret Thatcher's death (yet).

    1. (Golf clap.)

      "A dose of salts" is the correct but mostly forgotten phrase that's become Murphyized into "a grain of salt" as a description for skepticism.

      A dose of salts was a laxative (Louis Armstrong's favorite was Swiss Kriss). Highly recommended for taking a nice, big Beck or Coulter, or even a ladylike little Murphy.

Often knocked by those who have no hope of ever being accepted (like Pat Murphy), MENSA has many special interest groups that offer a change of pace from the normal beer-swilling, bleep-injected conversation found in most sports bars or water cooler banter discussing the previous night's Simpson's episode, the latest video game or wardrobe malfunction on some TV show.

    1. Yes, the Krackwhore had a grudge against that op and had been dropping dime on his name and station ID for the past couple of years on the FRN and Alex Brains blog. But there's no way of knowing whether the FCC acts on unsubstantiated innuendo.

      Even if pressed for specific info or by an FOIA request the FCC would likely withhold any specifics about who filed a complaint. The inconsistencies of the FCC's written "No, no, bad hamster, no biscuit for you!" warnings are probably designed to allow them to skirt FOIA requests.

      Personally we find the FCC's Notices of Unwelcomed Eavesdropping to be unusually inconsistent for a federal regulatory agency. We suspect they are faking their "complaints" and simply acting on pre-confirmed information based on triangulations, browsing station logs for targeted ops and wild ass guesses.

      Delete
    2. An informed sourceApril 16, 2013 at 11:08 PM

      The FCC agent who actually made the bust, claimed to have been in the area on "other business" when the op in question came on the air, and thus fell into his lap. So it would appear that it did not happen as the result of any "stakeout". This is the nightmare scenario for any stations operating in or around larger urban areas: the FCC spends time monitoring legal stations with their DF vehicles, but the frequency range of their spectrum analyzers is very broad. If you come on the air while they are around monitoring local radio traffic, they will literally see the signal and can immediately DF it.

      The FCC agent also made a reference to their long-range monitoring network, and claimed that it was actively monitoring 6925 kHz, performing long-range DFs on stations operating there, and routinely forwarding the DF information to the appropriate FCC field offices for potential enforcement actions.

      So, pirate operators may want to re-evaluate any habitual use of 6925, especially those operating from a fixed QTH (unless you want to deliberately tweak the agency's nose, which is another matter).
      Those who have regularly been using 6925 should assume that the agency has been performing long-range DFs on them, and should take a good look at the frequency and predictability of their broadcasts. If portable operations are possible, they should be utilized as much as possible. The FCC has a big problem with moving targets: if they can't predict where you will be broadcasting from, it makes it that much tougher to even begin to plan sending out a DF vehicle to lie in wait.

      They like sitting ducks, so they can make easy busts, put out their press releases, and show everyone what big men they are, and try to justify their agency's existence.

      Don't be a sitting duck!

  18. I dunno, I always transmitted from remote tx sites and they found me in under forty minutes one Fourth of July weekend.

  21. The comments by "an informed source" certainly gives one pause for thought.

    But is the information provided by the FCC agent necessarily accurate and truthful?

    Enforcement agents are notorious for lying when it suits their purpose. One valid purpose is protecting the identity of an informant. They also like to leave you with the impression that they will be watching you, even if this is not the case.

    Because the FCC says so does not make it necessarily true.

    Time will tell, I guess.

    1. Per the operator of RRS he has NO indication or information that would lead him to believe that any op dropped a dim on him. Let's not go there again.

    2. There's no doubt the fellow noted in the April NOUO was targeted for trolling on the FRN and Alex Brains blog. Those posts may have been deleted but screencaps are available.

      Identity spoofing and doxing are common dirty tricks in the U.S. shortwave pirate radio scene, with a long history of examples on the FRN, uselessnet and elsewhere by the Lagomurph under many aliases, and by Krackwhore of Ranting Jambutt Innuendo, who collects butthurt grudges the way some people collect QSLs.

      Doesn't necessarily mean the FCC would give any particular credence to accusations such as the Lagomurph's repeated dox dropping of enemies on his WBNY blarg.

      It's more likely the FCC would give priority to complaints filed by licensed amateur radio operators, some of whom take this stuff seriously enough to issue "Official Observer Advisory Notices" to accused offenders.

      There's also no doubt the FCC browses pirate radio oriented websites for loggings and clues to station identities. Anecdotal information such as music playlists and station IDs logged by DXers can be correlated with the field agent's own notes and DFing info.

      Delete
  22. "Let's not go there again."

    What the fuck are you talking about??? The whole purpose of this blog is to "go there again". Guise can correct me if I'm wrong, but RP exists to counter the pernicious influence of those fools on the FRN, where they were allowed to do their best to destroy the lives of those that they didn't like.

    There is indisputable evidence that Mike, kracker, and a few others have conspired to screw over pirates, DXers, and others who have disagreed with them. It is eminently reasonable to assume that someone from that crowd dropped a dime on RRS, and I for, one, will have to be convinced that the facts are otherwise.

    Go back to the FRN. Preach to your choir. The people here, though, are not stupid enough to buy your argument.

    Moron.

      Delete
    5. That link gives hosting location info, not domain ownership. The FRN domain is still shown as grouped with several Joplin Globe domains on the same host, same as it was a couple years ago.

      It looks as if they acquired hosting elsewhere, sometime after the Joplin tornado. The first report was more than a year old.

  41. The thing to do now is to not give Murphy the attention that he craves. He will fade away; he doesn't have the talent to hold an audience, and, with the FRN gone, he has no way to force himself into the forefront of pirate radio discourse.

    His butt-buddy kracker will also fade away, having nothing of any interest to say. Whether the other marginal members of the FRN will try to stay relevant, such as cosmikdebris, is hard to say. I'd guess that they also will be swept into the dustheap of history.

  42. Hi, my name is Mike Graves

    I used to be the admin of the FRN and known for my on air personalities as Commander Bunny & Bill O Rights. At some point, I believed the free radio scene was in jeopardy from hostile individuals trying to expose others and felt it was necessary to take action and put a stop to it. This urge became difficult to control once I got a taste of power and found it easy to charm & manipulate others to cover my back regardless of actions. One thing lead to another and I discovered I really didn't like people at all, including myself, but developed coping mechanisms to enforce double standards and rationalize any means to justify ends, not to mention how happy I was making others miserable.

    This past year has been very difficult since I was exposed for my actions using sock puppets, online PI's, smear tactics and ultimately reporting another pirate to the Canadian Authorities to eliminate all those nattering nabobs that were threatening my ego & control over the hobby. It's not fair, I've worked so hard to keep pirate radio all for myself and had no idea most of the hobby would remember all the nasty things I've done over the last decade or so, especially those damning screenshots from the FRN, my WBNY blog and past emails. How can I cover my tracks if I can't hide the evidence?

  56. Looks like that "New FRN' needs to tighten up their registration, so that any Tom, Dick or Harry can't walk right in and speak the truth, like this guy did:

    "Here's an idea. Instead of "aggregating" log sources from other boards (i.e. ripping them off) why not come up with a compelling reason for people to come to this site to post logs?

    To us looking in from afar, this is the same clubhouse for the same mentally unstable stalker who ultimately rendered the original FRN a dysfunctional non-entity. He's here with bells on and thus the same fate is unavoidable for this site. The paranoia sets in, the registrations become a special-double-secret impossible process, the rants and sock puppetry become the only content, the site dies.

    Cosmik, you don't seem like a bad guy. But this is a dead end street. Wasting your time keeping certain individuals from turning on you is ultimately a futile effort, as almost everyone has found out. The hobby is too small and the ship has sailed on all of this. Cruzan bailed for a reason."

    IMHO: John T. Arthur would be hilarious if he wasn't so pathetic. In essence, JTA is immature because he began with an erroneous conclusion and then tried to fill in the blanks, which simply doesn't work. I've read JTA a few times, but the inuendo and unsupported accusations became too much, and there's no factual basis to his arguements, so I don't bother anymore. JTA's a great exercise in illogical thinking, leaping to conclusions, and circular reasoning.

    The main problem with "Commander Bunny" is that when a person can post anonymously they can say anything, true or not, and there's no accountability. If "Commander Bunny" could post truth, he could have a good thing going. Unfortunately, he appears to have an axe to grind and the truth doesn't enter into it. Of course, if you think about it, if one posts the truth one doesn't have to hide behind ones' keyboard and use a false name.

  66. We all know, that Commander Murphy Graves is one of the biggest hypocrites operating in the Free Radio world. He is the living example of "Do as I say, not as I do".
    One of the reasons Commander Murphy Graves hates this blog is, that it pulled back the curtain and exposed the hands inside the sock puppet heads. (With apologies to TMBG)
    And we all know how bunnies feel about being caught in a trap, especially of one's own making.

    1. That's a stretch. Just because listeners ask for QSL's doesn't mean they will be ops.

      HFU leaders and members are logging all pirates. As "newbs" get further into the hobby, they will learn which end of the pool is safe to swim in.

      Delete
    2. Agreed. If someone wants to log any of bunny's stations then more power to them. The HFU is not for censoring like the FRN was. LC's Everybody Knows pretty much sums it up.

      Delete
    3. "As "newbs" get further into the hobby, they will learn which end of the pool is safe to swim in."

      By then it is too late. Their names and addresses are already in Bunny's sticky paws.

      "The HFU is not for censoring like the FRN was."

      I was waiting for someone to bring up "censorship" or "free speech". The only proper consideration for a leader in a pirate community is the protection of broadcasters. If you want to put other beliefs ahead of this responsibility then I am sorry, but you get no respect from me.

      If you don't like censoring bunny logs, how about adding a warning that listeners should not report to these station unless they use a relative/friend's address at least 500 miles from their home (preferably one they don;t really like)?

      And don't assume that "everyone knows" because they see it in chat. Many people use only HFU, and avoid chat, for various reasons. There is nothing recent on HFU to warn these people.

      Delete
    4. In fact, certain people on HFU seem to prefer that newbies remain in ignorance about Pat Bunny and his dark deeds, rather than it be mentioned there; so much so that certain comments have disappeared (only days ago) or threads get locked or people get asked not to post about it, etc. They would prefer that others be put at risk, rather than have their happy little world disturbed by information about the dark deeds of Pat Murphy and friends.

      So don't give me this "the HFU is not for censoring" bullshit. It has been happening; just not to loggings.

      Delete
    5. If true, then this is the perfect time to abandon the HFU. She's still fully afloat, the lights are blazing and the party is in full swing. And few people are aware of the gaping hole that has appeared under the waterline, destined to sink her as surely as the frn.

      All is fine now, but when those "newbs" start getting "visits", all hell is going to break lose.

      Delete
    6. "By then it is too late". So What? Again, a listener requesting a QSL isn't an op. If they want to be an op, they're smart enough to separate the two. What's he going to do if he can't sic the FCC on you? Send you a set of encylopedias? How dastardly.

      C'mon guy(s). The problem that was Bunny and the FRN was dealt with here years ago. It's over. You're worried about a guy in his basement trying to solder while wearing a sweaty costume.

      Is the HFU perfect? No, but then which site is? At least it doesn't feel abusive like the old FRN right?

      For some folks this is just a hobby and being involved in fighting bunny's bs is not worth the investment, right or wrong. Those who still want to hold his paws to the fire should do so as he's earned it and then some. Keep in mind not everyone is as passionate about the fight as others, but that's what this site provides an outlet for.

      Someone earlier in the thread mentioned RP doing some non bunny related satire or parody on other topics in good humor. This would be a good way to introduce new readers to the lighter side of the equation and would allow them to search the archives if they want to know the history of what transpired.

      Delete
    9. "a listener requesting a QSL isn't an op. If they want to be an op, they're smart enough to separate the two"

      Herein lies the heart of the problem. You are assuming that everyone adopts proper security, probably based on your own experience. That is naive. Even in the bad old days there were occasionally people who were so poorly informed that they idiotically confided too much info to the wrong people. A scroll back through RP or though Kracker's blog will confirm this as fact.

      To assume that this is not happening today, in this "happy-go-lucky, the FCC is dead, so lets all play" free-for-all, is simply ludicrous.

      "For some folks this is just a hobby and being involved in fighting bunny's bs is not worth the investment, right or wrong."

      I have no wish to prolong any fight. But some kind of warning to newbs to be careful should be part of the package. Perhaps a general, non-specific warning tagged to the top of logs regarding security issues for those who may be considering txing. This could address the dangers of sharing info, as well as related issues as the most secure email services, how to arrange alternate HFU identities, etc. Who knows, maybe it would encourage a person of two to take the plunge if they were confident they were doing it securely.

      Perhaps I'm being a tad anal-retentive, but I do not want to see even one more op go down because of the anyone in this hobby. There is enough risk from the government that we cannot control. This we can.

  91. Q: I have noticed elsewhere (not on this site) certain listeners posting "logs" hours after the alleged reception, usually stating that it was a "SDR catch". What this translates to is that the listener did not actually hear the station; their receiver did.

    A: I thought you didn't visit those 'other' sites John?

    Q: Of what value is a hours-late report - other than to note that somebody was on when nobody was listening?

    A: I checked the Official Pirate Radio Loggings Rule Book and as long as the log doesn't exceed its freshness date it's still good. I think the limit is around 24 to 48 hours for 2013, but of course it was 2 to 3 months back in 1996 so it all depends on your age, perspective and motive.

    Q: And should an Operator verify such "reports"? I know that, if I was running a station, I would not QSL those SDR catches.

    A: This is true. Not only would you not recognize a process you no longer have control over, but when mail drops were in there prime you enjoyed violating the trust and confidentiality that both Ops and listeners entrusted you with.

    Q: But that's just me. What do *you* think? I'd be interested in your thoughts...

    A: It's ok John, the hobby has left you behind and you're alone and looking for some angle to bitch about. Get over it.

    1. "...in retrospect, the whole premise for the "Pirate Wars" was just plain silly and petty"

      I agree, that when Pat Murphy aka Commander Bunny began his vendetta against NRS just because he didn't want a competing relay service in North America, which is really what set this whole thing in motion, or when he established a mob mentality using sockpuppets on the FRN, it was certainly 'silly and petty'. To whatever else you might be referring, I can only speculate.

      "The FRN folk have been minding their own business.... Now that everyone respects each other, and we are all much more mature,..."

      I think you're over-generalizing here, but I'm also a little confused, maybe you can help me out. Is this an example of 'minding their own business' or is that 'much more mature now'?

      And is this an example of 'respect', or of being 'just plain silly and petty'? (But glad to know JTA's been hearing TCS, and just how much it bothers him!) Some of us somewhere may be 'much more mature now', but some of us are just older.

      "... it's time to reconcile."

      Ya think me and Pat and JTA are going to join hands and go skipping through the daffodils singing "tra-la-la-la-la"? When hell freezes over! That's probably the one thing upon which the three of us would agree.

      "Mr. Moderator, tear down this blog!"

      I'm sure there's little that Pat and JTA et al would like better-- reason enough not to do it, in my opinion. But if we need more, well, this is one of the only sites that documents the abuses committed against the pirate radio community by Pat Murphy. along with the TCS blog, and the information should remain published to protect newbies from falling into his evil orbit--- and to give the rest of us a good laugh at the same time! 'Tear it down'? Far from it! This site should be mirrored on wordpress.org and a few other sites to ensure its perpetuity!

      Here's a deal for you: after Commander Pat undoes all the damage he's done over the years to pirate operators, listeners, and the community-at-large, I would consent to this blog disappearing (although it isn't up to me, of course).
