    Maybe it's just me, but if I were to encounter a rant in a diary from the CRANKY USERS GROUP, I wouldn't be too shocked. If I were to encounter a rant in a comment in a diary from the CRANKY USERS GROUP, I also wouldn't be too shocked. Gooderservice is entitled to his opinion - his CRANKY opinion - and I wish him luck in defining the word community for the rest of us.

    Hmmmpf.

      gets on my last nerve.

      I do not know where these people came from. I don't remember them from my years here ... they seem to have simply bubbled up from some backed up drain somewhere and now they seek to impose their definitions and rules on everyone else.

      I have been a member of a lot of different communities on DKos. A community comes together for a variety of  reasons ... some of them may be political, some may be social, maybe a combination of the two. It is ridiculous for someone who is not in the community to define what the rules (or lack of rules) in the community should be.

      Here is a simple definition: if you do not like what you see or hear in a community diary don't join in. Don't belittle it or deny it is a community. Just ... move ... on.

      It does not get much simpler.

      Much of life is knowing what to Google

        on DK4 - not a master tag. Remember that? Hmm. Do you remember who fought with Markos to get that changed? Lessee ... it was a diary with a catchy title ... by someone who writes all kinds of community diaries ... oh, yeah! ... Nurse Kelley Sez: Has DK4 forgotten community?

        It boggles the mind, Jan. When the pie fights move to Cranky Users, KosAbility, and J Town, you know Daily Kos has jumped the shark.
