    FWIW, the corrective action did not upset me, there was a lot of explanation for why it was inappropriate to post the video until it had been authenticated, etc.

    Much better for David Corn at MoJo to break it IMHO.

      The HR brigade f*cked up big time.

        I think donuts through very carefully and have only used two in a day, on one person, when it was clearly someone with a recent membership trying to derail discussions with RW concepts.

        This was a unique situation that also revealed a problem with the autoban algorithm. I have tried contacting admin before and have been in other diaries where someone had tried - no response.  

        I have also been in a situation where a comment by someone resulted in some ugly and negative attention for the site (not here). Daily Kos' reputation does matter and I think that was clear in the comments had she bothered to read them or engage in discussion before posting more diaries.

        It is certainly something to learn from and I am glad HQ is going to start helping new members understand the site rules and expectations. Shawn Russell had posted on a part of the video on 8/25. He went into a very good discussion, starting with an acknowledgement that the video was unverified. The comments were similar, Shawn was responding and no one hr'd it. She actually had more recommends for the 9 diaries than he got for 1.
