  •  Not about the extortion attempt, but... (9+ / 0-)

    ...they know about several specific stalking incidents, including when I posted a pic of my wife and I in a Loving Day Diary with the mountains of Cali in the background. (My wife is a black woman from Colombia, and I'm a white guy from Iowa.)

    A week or two later, I was shocked to find a link to my Loving Day Diary comment right up at the top of a gun diary (in which I didn't even comment), misleading labeled as "a picture of his wife", along with other links that seemed to be specifically compiled for providing targeting information for anybody reading the comment to locate us.

    This was in June, and I'm still waiting for a response from dKos admins on that.

    I took the precaution of deleting the photo at its source, so that it wouldn't appear in my Loving Day comment. Seemed wiser to take a step back into the closet than to expose my family to these armed creeps and anybody else who might have been reading the diary.

    •  There was a major change in moderation (6+ / 0-)

      around that time.  "They" don't really know about anything.  

      You need to contact Kos directly and bring that issue up again.  

      Report it, and document it very thoroughly.  Kos has a lot of e-mail to wade through.  From what I understand, he's been doing so, it's just taking him a while.

      Try to be clear and concise and stick to exactly what you can prove and easily demonstrate.  Make it a neat time line, with bullet points.  Don't spend your time talking about minor slights that might make it seem like you're whining about normal scuffles.

      You have to know Kestrel is going to say the extortion remark was a joke.  I don't think it's funny either, but he's going to try that route.

      You need to focus on the outing threats.
