    yes.
    But this is a fairly safe place for the average person on the Left to express opinions, and I don't think we need to go over the top with sanctimonious HRs, especially on someone who has been around as long as 88kathy, who survived a shit ton of attacks from people who misinterpreted her screen name.
    It happens here every time something like this happens: we turn on each other.
    Do you see me in there throwing rocks at all the anti-2a shit that's spiraling up now?
    No.
    And you won't.
    Let them have their fits.
    I'll wait till it's over.

      People on the other side come here looking for that sort of speculation so they can throw it back in the face of those who said it.

      Language professors HATE me!

    •  Listen I Got HR'd Into Hell Here Once (10+ / 0-)

      I left a fairly mundane comment. On a Dairy about the Middle East. Folks agreed with me. One person then went and saw I wrote a "snark" Diary with the headline there is a "Holocaust Going On In My House." It was about there were a lot of  crickets that come into my house in the spring. My cat, well she tends to hunt them down and kill them. Bring them to me to show me she killed them.

      I then saw, for lack of a better word, a mob attack me. Wasn't fun. Something like if I would use the world holocaust in this manner, I was comparing Jews to insects.

      So when somebody gets HR in my Diaries, unless their conduct is just terrible, I'l come to their defense. Cause nobody came to my defense.

      When opportunity calls pick up the phone and give it directions to your house.
