    The diarist thought he was Andy Borowitz.  He wasn't.  And his history gave me no reason to give him the benefit of the doubt.  I know we are supposed to judge the comments and not the poster, but I do look at someone's history if they make questionable comments and I'm not familiar with them.  We're liberals, we're supposed to be sensitive to death and other topics, and not gripe that someone is being a spoilsport or "PC".

      Hide rating a tip jar is not intended to be used against anyone but the most obvious and egregious of trolls.
      Means what to you ?

      Is that equal to
      the most obvious and egregious of trolls
      to you ?

        was Andy Borowitz yet wasn't--if that were grounds for HR a significant portion of the site would get HRed.  I thought the diary was, yes, trollish, spammish and tasteless.  I couldn't see jbou or Jeff Lieber writing it and I enjoy them both.  I don't toss donuts indiscriminately and I feel no guilt for this.  At all.

        •  OK (2+ / 0-)
          trollish, spammish and tasteless.
          "Trollish" doesn't meet the definition .
          "Spammish" doesn't meet the definition .
          "Tasteless" doesn't meet the definition .

          When you hide rate a tip jar you are saying that the diarist is an obvious and egregious troll .

          Hide rating a tip jar is not intended to be used against anyone but the most obvious and egregious of trolls.
          If the diarist is not an obvious and egregious troll , don't hide rate the tip jar , "Make a comment. Debate. Challenge. Argue. Persuade"
          To reiterate, if it's simply a matter of not liking the point of view in a diary, don’t tip or recommend the diarist. Make a comment. Debate. Challenge. Argue. Persuade.

          •  That's your opinion that it doesn't meet (3+ / 0-)

            the definition.  Mine differs.  Again, I won't lose sleep HRing a zero-bar poster who makes a tasteless diary about Neil Armstrong in order to link to his crappy blog.  Not a moment.

              So you take into account the number of bars ?

                debate, comment, persuade and argue with a diarist who spent all of, oh, about 14 seconds composing his diary.  He put no effort into it, why should I?  Feel free to update the Tip Jar or report me for what you think is an unjust HR.

                •  So don't say anything . (0+ / 0-)

                  Just ignore the heck out of the diary you don't care for .
                  I ignore the hell out of some peoples diaries every time they post them , not everyone does , they feel the need to piss and moan in other peoples diaries . I see them showing up in hidden comments and I have a look see at who's diary ...
                  And while I understand what they are saying / feeling
                  I would never rec their comment , they should just ignore and move on to something they do like .
                  In fact in response to one persons comments I wrote a diary about "my page" and how to never see what was pissing off the commenter so very much .

                  Feel free to update the Tip Jar or report me for what you think is an unjust HR.
                  I do feel free to uprate , but the diary does not rate a rec from me .
                  or report me for what you think is an unjust HR.
                  I do feel free to report , but I did a diary on the subject instead .

                  This morning there was a diary that I posted a three letter comment in . I put all the effort into that comment that I felt the diary merited .
