    ....any evidence to refute the charges of distortion and quote-mining, which if true would constitute a deliberate attempt to mislead readers of the diary. I'm not saying no defence could be made; I'm just saying that you are not trying to provide one. And obsessively posting misleading diaries is trolling.

      •  Are you repeatedly asking this question (5+ / 0-)

        in order to HR a response in the affirmative as name-calling?

          Hide rating a tip jar is not intended to be used against anyone but the most obvious and egregious of trolls. Meteor Blades
          So the question is , is he a troll ? If you are saying he is a troll then feel free to hide rate the tip jar , if you are not willing to say he is a troll don't hide rate the tip jar .

          •  Name-calling is not MB's rule (0+ / 0-)

            That's your made-up rule, and since you still haven't given a reason why anyone should be required to insult everyone they HR (opening themselves up to return fire from, say, you) I reject your made-up rule.

            In fact, I reject it in favor of MB's extrapolation on the rules, which you know quite well, having quoted them recently.

            Let me extrapolate from his guidelines. When you HR someone’s tip jar, what you are saying is that the diary is so disruptive, so inflammatory, so false, so damaging to our community that it isn’t even worth debating but should be deleted from any discussion.

            •  Name calling ? (0+ / 0-)

              You seem to misunderstand .

              Here it is as Meteor Blades wrote it Sun Jun 07, 2009 at 02:00 PM PDT

              Hide rating a tip jar is not intended to be used against anyone but the most obvious and egregious of trolls.
              If your definition of obvious and egregious is consistently not the definition used by the rest of the community or by site administrators, expect your rating ability to be suspended.
              So , if you hide rate a tip jar you are saying the diarist is an "obvious and egregious of troll".

              If you do think the diarist is an" obvious and egregious of troll"
              then feel free to hide rate the tip jar .

              If you are unwilling to say the diarist is an" obvious and egregious of troll" then don't hide rate the tip jar .

              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.

            •  In that case I really wish that those hr'ing my (0+ / 0-)

              tip jar would do so and just leave, rather than sticking around to debate what they have just declared not worth debating.

        Posting diaries with inflammatory titles that are not supported by the content is trolling.

    •  Presnet any credible evidence (0+ / 0-)

      Because what is here seems more witch hunt.  Frankly, I'm tempted to through a few more donuts around here
