    and "disruptive to the community" is open to interpretation. I think long and hard before HRing TipJars, and I don't take the responsibility lightly. If anyone doesn't like my decisions then s/he is welcome to report me to the "Community and Moderation Issues" area of the dKos HelpDesk.

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

        Even through the relatively short time I've been participating here, I've seen community moderation ebb and flow. It's fairly organic here, a constant negotiation rather than strictly rule-bound, perhaps as it should be...

          Turning a blind eye to it is not "negotiation". Saying that its not there is not  "negotiation".  Saying that its old fashion is not "negotiation".
