      activists who are working toward my goals (re-electing the POTUS and electing more and better Democratic representatives in November 2012) are emphatically NOT worth sharing in the middle of an election campaign. There has been far too much of that kind of divisive behavior on this site in the past few years.

      My original comment to Meteor Blades referenced a diary I began writing over two years ago, and which I promised (MB, and Lawrence Lewis, and others) I would not publish before the day after election day 2012. At that time it will be worth a discussion. Right now, it would only get in our way: Anything which serves mainly to scrape the nerves of allies should be avoided before the second week in November.

      Having read your response to me and (more importantly) your response to Heart of the Rockies, I'm satisfied your intent wasn't malicious shit-stirring, and I'm withdrawing my hide rate of your comment. I'm also not going to trouble the admins on this issue; they are kept busy enough by kossaks who like to throw verbal acid (see the link above) and then complain to them about the backsplash.

      Thanks to already-built-in anthropogenic climate change, our planet will only be able to sustain half a billion humans in 2100 AD. Human population will probably reach 9 billion in 2050 AD. Will your descendants be among the 'lucky' one-in-eighteen?
