    In point of fact, David in Northridge, praised your actions repeatedly within the diary.  The issue here is not whether or not you committed a good act in either the act or the diary of the act.  It has to do with how we talk about both.  I suggest you reread the diary and then reread your comment.

    A person's character is measured by how they treat everyone. Not just your pet group.

      Certainly none that I can see. I mean, where, specifically, are you reading praise? What's more, when she posted how hurt she felt, how mischaracterized, and how she felt like leaving dailykos over it, DinN's reply (just above) was, "well I suppose that was inevitable." That's it. Complete unconcern.

      He says (in a diary update, of all places, totally after the fact) that his problem is not with her but rather with abusive commenters. Fine, but then why didn't he tell her that directly, in reply to her (hurt, sad) comment? She's unlikely ever to see the update.

      Well, anyway. There's nothing for it now. She's deleted her one and only "offending" diary (she was new) and is gone from us for good. And I think it stinks. Hope Dave feels vindicated. What an ass.

        the intentions behind said intervention were good
        No, the ass is people like you.  The other diary is not mentioned to condemn it but presented as the catalyst to produce this one.  The fact that you take offense is not an argument against this diary but proof of the diarist's thesis.

        •  This is your idea of "repeated praise" (0+ / 0-)

          when the diarist has referred to her as "preening" and show-offy and called her intentions self-congratulatory?

          Your sig line fairly bursts with irony.
