    This is a private site run by a private individual with their own set of rules.  Don't like the rules?  Don't let the door hit you on the way out.  

    I also thank the one who rearranged deck chairs on the Titanic so those on board ship could get a better view of the iceberg.

    •  I don't think that is how kos runs his site though (5+ / 0-)

      dailykos isn't a place where "don't like it, get out" flies. We, as kossacks, are allowed to speak frankly about the rules for the site, and are permitted to discuss ways to improve the rules to include more people from a wider variety of backgrounds. The rules here are constantly in flux...they are not permanent or written in stone by any means. Kos wants criticism of his system, so he can improve it and make it operate in a fair manner.

      Shutting down the discussion by saying  

      Don't like the rules?  Don't let the door hit you on the way out.  

      runs contrary to the way the rules actually work.

      Community moderation and FAQ are an expression of Kos' desire to make the moderation system all inclusive. Anyone who is a Trusted User has the ability to determine whether a comment should be hidden from public view. Everyone can edit the FAQ to better reflect this community's shifting norms.

      So honestly, it does more harm to say what you just said than it does to actually discuss moderation, rules, and community norms in an adult fashion.

        So much "harm", the earth tilted off its axis.

      was that the diarist don't like the rules????

      Epic fail on your part.

      Try reading it again, or better yet, just leave it alone.

      It's not worth the effort.

        Finally something we agree on.
