    What the hell is this?

    Does this even qualify as an "ad"?

    •  More info please (0+ / 0-)

      Neither your comment nor the clip you posted meet the basic journalism formula: Who, where, what, when ... and sometimes how or why.

        Well, you might notice that this video is linked (conveniently under the text "NY-25") in the diary on which this comment was posted.  By putting "NY-25" in my subject line, I thought I was usefully signalling that my comment was relevant to people who had noticed that link.

        I apologize for the confusion.

          You are a lazy writer, I'm sorry to say.

          There are 400 or so House races (not all being contested), more than 25 in New York State alone. As a reader, it's not my job to remember them all without a helpful clue. It's not my job here to leave a thread to go up to a diary at the top with paragraphs on a dozen or more different races, just to search out a link.

          But you do not respect your readers enuff to add a few words or names to the four digits "NY-25". Cum'on.

          I did click on your video, and watched it. It didn't say who was the speaker or what was the subject.

          So I asked you. You don't even give me the courtesy of an answer.

          Instead you write five lines of smug and self-righteousness snearing, but you STILL do not inform me as to Who or What or ...

          Lazy and rude. Sorry.

            Well there's also the fact that the answer as to whose video it was had already been posted by the time I wrote my reply.  I didn't see the point in reiterating what someone else had already written.

            Look, I'm new here, and I'm still getting the hang of how much information one should provide when making comments.  I've noticed comments tend to be very short, so I embedded one of the videos linked in the diary, referenced the race to which it was related, and asked a couple of questions about it.

            I don't want to bore readers who likely have to skim the voluminous comments here at Daily Kos with information they already know.  It's a delicate balancing act.  I am sorry if I didn't provide the customary amount of information, but really I thought I was just asking a question based on information that was already in the diary.  I wasn't providing any new information.

      Maybe they just want to annoy people while they are looking at Slaughter's face.
