      it was totally in context. No attempt to hijack the thread or forward a political agenda. So I see no need for you to tell me to stop this or that. Is that clear.

      •  Oh, I indeed did read them. (6+ / 0-)

        And your introduction of the I-P issue into a diary about antisemitic attacks in Brooklyn has nothing to do with anything.

        You have some nerve, btw, coming in here with the recent history you have, and presuming to lecture me here?

        Back to the drawing board, my friend.  You are trolling now.  Stop it.

          are gone. I want them back and on record. Cause (1) I didn't threaten you and (2) if anybody broke the rules of this site it was you and others.

          •  Yeah, sure. (4+ / 0-)

            You've never threatened me, right.

            You might also consider I know exactly who you are and you know who I am. And I think either you forgot that or are confused tonight.
            Dude. You Do Realize I've Sat In a conference call or two with you.

            This is all true.  You know a lot about me.  And you've said "I know exactly who you are" (you do).

            How else am I supposed to take this?

              folks, have talked, you wouldn't think I am a racist. Maybe give me the benefit of the doubt and not assume the worse. That would be a start.

                      you are making that up. Never. Not even close. Where did I say I'd "out" you? Where did I say I'd do anything to you. I just didn't. IMHO you are just trying to justify what you said. Hope people don't read the thread and they agree with you. I never even got into the ballpark of threaten you.

                      BTW: This isn't a threat. It is a promise. How we know each other. That will end tomorrow. I have NO desire to be associated with anything related to you. And before anybody thinks that is some threat, I pay the cost of how we know each other. I will no longer do those things.

                        Dude. You Do Realize I've Sat In a conference call or two with you.

                        Those are outing threats, as others also now clearly agree.

                        I have NO desire to be associated with anything related to you.

                        Yeah well, neither do I have any desire to be associated with you (nor did I ever, I didn't vote to have you involved with anything, and frankly I would have cast a vote against you from the beginning if we had one).  That doesn't change the fact that you've creepily threatened to out me tonight.  It's quite clear you dislike me.  That's not the problem.  The problem is you making threats to out my identity.

                        I pay the cost of how we know each other.

                        Huh?  When did this happen?  Lol.

                        And you may want to check your facts again, dude.  I dropped out of that project long ago, so don't hold your anger and hatred of me against the current participants in that project.

          You would know that he was not the first person to bring up I-P in this diary. It was commonmass. You were wrong. And despite being wrong, you accuse webranding of being a troll. If there was a single comment in this diary that should be HR'd its yours.

          •  Which one and where? (2+ / 0-)
            Recommended by:

            Show me anything I said here that was worth hiding.

            The difference, as I noted below, is that one person apologized immediately and stopped.  The other quadrupled down and then some.  And ended up with the hidden comments to prove it.  That's why the latter became the focus of this thread, and not the former.

            I'd say the thread which followed from my comment above which you replied to actually proves me correct, and you wrong.  But hey, what do I know?

            Btw, I note you didn't even tip or rec this diary.  You only came in here to make confrontational comments to me.  That's not being a good guest here, I'd say.

            •  I just explained it to you (0+ / 0-)

              I'm absolutely certain my issue with your actions was clear. Stop accusing people of trolling. And, if you going to accuse someone of going off topic (in this case to I-P), then accuse the person who actually was the first to do so, which in this case was commonmass.

              Btw, I note you didn't even tip or rec this diary.  You only came in here to make confrontational comments to me.  That's not being a good guest here, I'd say.

              Because I didn't rec or tip the diary means I came into this diary just to confront you?  Ridiculous. You're really, really stretching.

              Ironically, it appears you're the one who came into this diary to confront, and that would be to confront webranding, about a diary he posted more than a month ago and to confront him for injecting I-P into the discussion when he wasn't the first to do so. If there's an apology owed, its yours to him.

              Out of respect to fizzik's diary, this will be my last comment to you on the subject. I only hope the admins take note.

                Check the tip jar and my first comment.   Which also just so happened to be the first comment in this diary after the tip jar.

                Oops.  Looks like I was in here before anyone else was, in fact.  And long, long before you decided to show up and pull this little act.  You are wrong, once again.  

                But please, do keep defending the guy who threatened me and made more than one unfortunate comment here.  Three of which are now hidden, and not by me.  Keep it up.  It reflects well on you, really.

      commonmass was the first to bring up the issue of I-P in this diary. And, what makes matters worse, you acknowledge that fact in your comment to him. Yet, you admonish webranding who was simply responding to commonmass' comment in that regard.

      Further down, you point to the real source of your angst, which is a diary webranding wrote more than a month ago where you he clumsily and awkwardly used the term "Holocaust" in a diary about his cat. His use of that term in the context he used it was entirely inappropriate. While there is an appropriate use of the word "holocaust" in a "non-Shoah" context, such as "nuclear holocaust", the capitalized version of the word is is always and solely used as as a synonym for the Shoah.

      This is about him using a word awkwardly in a diary more than a month old and refusing to acknowledge that. And this is about you targeting him for that.

      Both of you are wrong. He was wrong then and now for doubling down on that awkward usage and you are wrong now for targeting him for it and using "this isn't an I-P diary" as your crutch to do so. Even when you tacitly acknowledge that commonmass is the one who was the first to bring it up, you yourself double down in your comment below in claiming webranding is the one who brought it up. Ridiculous.

      Some of HR'ers in this diary lost their ratings privileges during the Purge. And, it appears some of you haven't learned from that.

        You'd have a point, were it not for the fact that one of these people apologized immediately and stopped, while the other quadrupled down, and then went on to threaten another user and make a hideous, hurtful comment which was rightly hidden.  That was not only "my problem," but it was also the problem of the many other people who gifted him with donuts.  So that's why he became the focus of this thread.

        And no, this was about bringing an unrelated, divisive topic into a diary which was about nothing of the sort.  That's what this is about, and that's what I objected to.  And while we're on that point, I'd note that people's histories and general behavior here also absolutely matter.

        Btw, I note you didn't even tip or rec this diary.  No, you only came in to make these comments to me.  I'd say that you're the one who's out of line, and the one who is not being a good guest in this diary.

        •  Stop deflecting (0+ / 0-)

          the record speaks for itself. Commonmass first injected I-P into the discussion here:

          http://www.dailykos.com/...

          webranding responded to commonmass here:

          http://www.dailykos.com/...

          You then jumped on webranding for injecting I-P here:

          http://www.dailykos.com/...

          commonmass then apologized for bringing up I-P here, in response to you jumping on webranding:

          http://www.dailykos.com/...

          So, its clear the apology did not come before you jumped on webranding, it came after, and was completely irrelevant to why you jumped on webranding instead of commonmass.

          Furthermore, all of webranding's doubling down and digging his hole all happened AFTER you jumped on him. So, therefore, thats clearly irrelevant to whatever defense you're trying to mount.

          You attacked the wrong person and a shitstorm resulted.

          And no, this was about bringing an unrelated, divisive topic into a diary which was about nothing of the sort.  That's what this is about, and that's what I objected to.

          Which was exactly my point. Except, you didn't attack the person who brought an "unrelated, divisive top into the diary", which was commonmass. Rather, you attacked webranding.

            Read the thread again, and then tell me who "attacked" who, and who was acting inappropriately here.

            And stop being a terrible guest in fizziks' diary.  Do you have anything to say on topic here?

                I come home from a cross-country train trip to find this.  What was the reason, btw?  Never got one, because there isn't one.  But hey, whatever.

                Enjoy winning the internet.  I'm winning life, myself.  You know, things that matter.

                I only hope you know and can enjoy that feeling one day, too, fcvaguy.  ;)

                  then I suspect you'll be NR'd for awhile. Sometimes introspection is a good thing. One of your upraters was also banned, but he got unbanned the next day or so. I suspect he did some introspection.

                    Don't need to, petulant internet games aren't my thing.  And I'd once again note that you're still here, a week later, violating the 'rules' by being a horrible guest in this diary, only here to pick fights.  As is your wont.  I don't constantly run crying to admins about everybody I run into here, though.  I can handle myself fine.

                    I'd also suggest you're the one in need of introspection.  Some people violate 'rules' for a week, others never do yet have to deal with 'internet enemies' (lol) trying to push them off the site.  Like, right here!

                    Now I'm sorry, but I must leave.  And if you'd like to carry on this pointless one-way pissing contest be my guest.  Last word is yours, as is clear always must be the case with you.  Have fun with it.  I'll be over here winning life.  I still wish you the same one day as well, pal.  ;)
