    on the porch.  

    But on the sidewalk, it's a different story.  

    My concern is that not all people can code switch as well as you.  

    Also not sure how tenable a situation it is where group A gets to talk about other members of group A however they want, but only in diary series Z.  Then people from Group B will want to be able to talk about people from group A wherever they please, etc etc.

    •  Well - we've always had leeway to talk (8+ / 0-)

      openly in here - because the power structure is Dopper :)

      And in the past MB kept an eye out for us - and now Kos has made it clear that folks shouldn't get dickish in here.

      The main site folks who are uncomfortable mixing have got to learn that we are not going to stay - hidden in a colored corner to avoid offending delicate sensibilities.  

      I have been writing diaries as an individual - since I got here.

      I have not changed my voice - and I've been hounded, hr'ed followed around and dissed. Sunday I got called a racist or bigot was the word  ...  So what?  

      I'm still here :)

      I also rarely lose it online.  Instead - I smash plates in the kitchen - lol.
