  •  I only very, very rarely HR (0+ / 0-)

    but as I said I stand by my decision even though the material turns out to be real.  There was no reason to post nine separate diaries with no content but a single video or audio clip in each.  There were multiple requests that the diarist consolidate into one diary.  Those requests were ignored.  On that basis alone, the HR's were warranted.

      •  Is it inconceivable to you that both matter? (0+ / 0-)

        This site would become completely unusable if any significant number of people behaved as that diarist did.  I take no pleasure in meting out HRs nor do I seek opportunities to do so, but I care about the continued value of this site so I do on occasion use the hammer Markos has given us and I'm not apologizing for that.

        •  1: you weren't the only one who HRd this (0+ / 0-)

          2: I am not asking anybody to 'apologize' for anything.

          3: I have no doubt you and others will cling dearly to the right to HR.

          4: All I am doing is making the necessary observation that too many people are just too focused on that goddammned HR and SOME have the HR button attached directly to their ego.

          5: It remains fact that if people weren't so fixated on this troll hunting bit and having their HR wrapped up in their ego (I'm protecting Daily Kos!!!) we'd not have this issue. This can't be explained away, though I promise to be entertained by any efforts to do so.

          Maybe people need only 3 donuts per day?

          •  Whatever. (0+ / 0-)

            It seems you have some pet peeve about the way community moderation works on this site.  I'm not "cling[ing] dearly" to anything and I'm not interested in "troll hunting" no matter what you may assume.  I merely use the tools provided to us as best I can, and whatever you may think of it the purpose of the "HR" tool is in a sense to protect DailyKos.   I fail to see how you conclude that must be a matter of ego.  

            I posted about this only because I thought it was an interesting example of the system functioning as designed but nevertheless having a sub-optimal outcome.
