View Diary: On hide rating tip jars (71 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  This seems to be frequently disregarded, (8+ / 0-)

    especially during campaign season:

    On the other hand, a hide rating should never be used (in a tip jar or a comment) to express disagreement with a poster’s opinion.
    I see more and more of this, and without the courtesy of an explanation as to why the comment has been HR'd.  

    We should expect that there will be differing opinions on many issues, and the epithet of "bagger" seems to be very popular right now.

    I try to be very sparing in my use of donuts.  Good reminder, indy.

    •  My favorite: "You deserve to be HR'd." (4+ / 0-)

      No, nobody fucking DESERVES it; it's been pretty well set-out by the site admin what is HR'able and what isn't. The fact that so many seem to get away with abuse, and laugh about it or openly question it, is unfortunate.

    •  Agree. I've been here 4 years (6+ / 0-)

      and have handed out maybe 2 or 3 donuts. There were others who I would have HR'd but there was already a pile on.  These are usually the very obvious trolls.

      When it comes to donuts, I'm pretty much a live and let live kind of gal. I don't mind dissent, and I enjoy a debate.  

      We have some independents, and even a few sympathetic republicans here who post respectfully, and I enjoy their comments.  But having said that, one of the things I enjoy about this site is being free of the endless talking point wars found on other sites. There's no discussion there, just the hurling of insults.  Hate that.
