  •  Hunters rules were from before M.B. (0+ / 0-)

    are you thinking they are not valid because Kos is now doing the duties M.B. used to do ?
    Until Kos posts that Hunters and or Meteor Blades rules and guidelines are superseded ...

    shit-ton other, established reasons.
    What rules of this site were broken ?

    •  I don't think they are valid or invalid. (0+ / 0-)

      I think they are history; and pardon but I have no idea who "Hunter" is.

      Using Daily Kos as a referral site violates the spirit of the rule about posting something that is directly against the aims of this site; nowhere has Kos said "i created this site so that you could use it to post 2-sentence diaries that then link to your blog."

      •  Hunter (0+ / 0-)

        ... here's a quick rundown on who can "represent" Daily Kos.

        First of all, no one speaks for Daily Kos other than me. Period.

        Those who could be said to "represent" the site are the following Contributing Editors:

            * BarbinMD
            * Darksyde
            * DavidNYC
            * DeminCT
            * Devilstower
            * DHinMI
            * Hunter (fellow)
            * Georgia10
            * KagroX
            * Mcjoan (fellow)
            * Meteor Blades
            * MissLaura
            * Plutonium Page
            * SusanG (fellow)
            * Trapper John

        Appropriate use of Hide ratings
        An excellent discussion of when a hide-rate is appropriate, and some of the common types of trolls, can be found in the troll rating article, originally from this diary. Reading this article is highly recommended before issuing any Hides. Also read: An Exegesis for Troll Ratings posted by Hunter Tue Jan 01, 2008. (note that Hide ratings used to be called Troll ratings, and are referred to by the earlier name in these references)
        nowhere has Kos said "i created this site so that you could use it to post 2-sentence diaries that then link to your blog."
        He has said any length , he has allowed links to other sites .

        •  I didn't say "no links to other sites." (0+ / 0-)

          I think you know the difference between linking sources, saying "read more on this topic at this site", and

          "hey this happened, read more about it at my blog" and that be the total of the diary entry.

          •  I didn't say you had said that . (0+ / 0-)
            he has allowed links to other sites
            is a factual statement . He allows links to other sites . People can link to almost any other site , rabid right wing sites , westboro batshit crazy church , rnc , etc etc etc . Linking to Porn is a no no .

            If people link to their own site and you don't like it , don't click on the link . Ignore them . Find a diary that you enjoy and go to town .

            •  Again, linking to their own site (0+ / 0-)

              on its own is not the problem. The diary you linked to is not a diary, it is a referral to their blog where they can make money if you click on ads. That's it...there's no substance, and the intent is clear.
