    My participation is exactly what the diary says.  It's pretty basic.

      Where Adept2U posted How Markos Moulitsas Taught Me To Call Them The Tea Party with comments such as:

      Call Icebergslim and brooklynbadboy what they are: slave catchers.  NO different than Michael Steele, Allan West or Herman Cain.

      Or this diary with comments like these:

      People like Markos they are not only worthless, they the leeches of society. Blood suckers who make a living off of some one they should be embracing
      KOS's true colors are showing and the color is red-right-wing.

        You impute someone else's words on someone else's site to me, simply because I'm following the dictates of my conscience with regard to the mistreatment of people of color on this site?

        Nope.

        •  I'm imputing nothing to you (0+ / 0-)

          But when people who were banned from this site are recommending comments like those, I think it's fair to say  that the decision to ban them from here was not out of line.

          •  This is about SO much more than two bannings. (4+ / 0-)

            If people think that's all this about, they haven't been paying attention. There's a great deal more here, and more at stake, than the banning issue.

            But I've been very clear about why I'm doing this.  And no one's going to hijack that.

              it is about SO much more than two bannings and if people think that's all this is about, they either haven't been paying attention or have been wearing blinders.

              Unlike you, I support kos in the decisions he made. In any case, I'll stop holding you off from your boycott.

              •  It's not up to YOU (0+ / 0-)

                to decide who wants to boycott for the next week.  

                So don't flatter yourself.

                •  And nowhere did I make that claim. (0+ / 0-)

                  But thanks for the kind thoughts.
