    •  I am not inclined to provide examples. (0+ / 0-)

      I understand how things work here, which is partly why I decline and prefer to let my point stand.

      As to demonization, there is plenty here, on other blogs, in the media, and among the leaders in DC.

      Generally, each side rationalizes behavior anyway and finds ways to blame the other side in zero sum terms.

      If you do not think that this is a big problem, as I do, that's fine.

      •  So you prefer to just make bare assertions? Ok, (0+ / 0-)

        expect to be ignored or ridiculed then.

        And to defend your complete lack of supportive evidence you resort to ad hominem attack on the entire community.  Yeah, keep it classy there.

        •  Yep. That is what I prefer. (0+ / 0-)

          I did not attack an entire community, just stated my belief. I find the notion that this is a community silly.

          That said, the character and tone of your response is why I am disinclined to participate. Because if I can "expect to be ignored or ridiculed," I think that shows exactly what I am saying.

          Some members of Daily Kos seem to think this is a pinnacle of knowledge, but it's actually just a repository of mostly second hand and second rate information.

          •  heh--didn't attack the community...for another 6 (0+ / 0-)

            lines.  Then you just couldn't help yourself...


            However, "I am not inclined to provide examples" is a pretty funny line, I'll give you that.

            •  The community? (0+ / 0-)

              What does that mean anyway? That I must engage in groupspeak to please self-annointed monitors?

              •  ok...ultimately, "the community" in this context (0+ / 0-)

                means anyone who could conceivably be interested in what you have to say, here, on DK.  Since this is where you are commenting right now.  

                If you're that hostile to the whole set of potential readers, here -- and that's fine, it's a free country -- then the logical thing for you to do is just stop talking to us, as you've announced several times in this thread that you'll do.  So do it.  Otherwise you're just muttering to yourself in public...

          •  Requesting you provide SOME kind fo proof is soooo (0+ / 0-)

            insulting of course.

            I hope you brought a lader for when you get off your horse.

            •  Proof of what? (0+ / 0-)

              Why should I need to prove myself anyway?

              So you will disapprove ridicule? You lost my interest when you said that. I try never to deal with ridicule because it leads in the wrong direction.

              Did you understand anything I said?

              I am not on a horse, either, and certainly nothing that requires a ladder.
