    with no transcript and no commentary, is a pretty crappy excuse for a diary.  But I thought I would pester the diarist just a little and see if ANY substantive commentary or statement of opinion was forthcoming.

      for writing "a pretty crappy excuse for a diary", or feel free to drop a donut in the tip jar. This is (still) a free country as far as I know.

      •  It is rude and crappy to post a diary (7+ / 0-)

        with only video and no explanations.

        Why?

        Because some of us CAN'T play video (slow connections) or HEAR or SEE or have restricted access. So diarist who do this I consider to be dicks because I my connection is too slow for most video. Is it worth my time to wait 15 minutes for 3min of video?

        While it's not HR-able or forbidden, I don't have a problem telling diarist what asshats they are for doing this. I clicked because it was interesting, but I don't get to find out jack shit about it. Thanks for wasting my time asshat diarist.

        I am much too liberal to be a Democrat.

      recommended by you, and somehow you didn't seem to think that this was a "pretty crappy excuse for a diary". What a shocker.

        You invested, apparently, a substantial quantity of your valuable time searching another commenter's recs, in an effort to come up with some sort of imagined "gotcha"? I can tell you one reason this diary is crap, and the diary you unearthed is not so much. That diary had enough words to explain to those who cannot view or hear video what the diary was about.

      is now acceptable as a diary in terms of both content and length.

      Few of the diaries on any "recent diaries" list these days have much if anything in the way of "substantive commentary or statement of opinion."
