    is actually pretty damned common around here, or have you missed it?

    Doesn't usually get immediate HRs though.

      it is an important story and does deserve better treatment, I don't disagree with that.  It's frustrating all the way around, wanting to understand this story and having it written in a poor way, having the diarist frustrated because he gets jumped when he writes about it even though poor writing is really common here and others get away with writing multiple diaries that begin with complaints about the way the diarist's previous diary was treated, etc.  Just frustrating.  

      I hope the diarist keeps trying to get this story out in a coherent way and that the community keeps giving him a chance to do it.  It's that important and nobody else is writing about it here that I can see.

      this writer's output represents a new low. His writing  is not just bad, but is exceptionally bad even for around here...in fact, it is  the worst I have ever read on this site except for a few right-wing troll diaries. His writing failures actually damage the story that is supposedly so important, because it is almost impossible to give credence to the claims of such an unhinged, incompetent rambler.

      How, one is forced to ask, can a person who makes so little sense and devotes so much space to airing his hurt feelings and confessional ramblings about being drunk and on drugs, be in possession of an exclusive, important story that we should believe and trust on its face? Posturing, preening, incoherent wankers aren't usually the go-to persons for hard, late-breaking news. It's just common sense. The lack of key facts and details is anotther problem.

      This goes beyond a complaint about "style." I cannot accept this guy's word.
