    •  I've spent months reading comments by the mile (0+ / 0-)

      with all sorts of invective aimed at anyone who dared disagree.
      Many of the most prolific commentators and diarists have engaged in this.
      I think you've got a pretty thin skin.
      However, I'll apologize for hurting your feelings, and I'll take your advice to elevate my tone.
      I'm serious.
      How's that?

        It really seems to me, you're confusing DKE with the main site of Daily Kos. Which prolific diarists on DKE have engaged in a lot of invective at anyone who disagreed with them? If that's happening, you need to contact David Nir, who has always done his best at Swing State Project and now at DKE to nip all flame wars in the bud.

        And it's quite unnecessary for you to apologize to me, however backhandedly (this has nothing to do with a "thin skin"). I never felt insulted, just barely slighted. So that's not my point, though I appreciate the gesture. The point is, someone like me isn't making policy here; we're just analyzing the effectiveness of different election strategies, regardless of our personal views. That's what we do here, by comparison with the main site, where people are talking all the time about their personal ideology and often disregarding or dismissing evidence that their prescriptions wouldn't work in elections.
