    He used a tool at his disposal.  Having said that, the term "the way" is often only correct in the semantic sense; think "two ways to skin a cat".  And, having siad that, I loathe paranoid conspiracy theories as anything other than entertainment.  But, whatever...
    Would you be able to provide him additional suggestions for those felt wronged by the improper HR?  I've been here for a few years and recently got what I think is my first HR.  It 'irked' me off but I neither retaliated, followed up with a mediator, nor (have yet) suffered any consequences.

    •  I've gotten a few in my time. (0+ / 0-)

      Not many.  But the last time, in a situation where I felt it was clearly unjust, I simply answered in a comment to the troll that stalking me from one diary to another for the sole purpose of HR'ing was really uncivilized, and that I had already apologized three times previously.  Markos never came down on me for that exchange, which had netted me a total of 27 HRs from my original error.  I didn't get banned.

      I don't generally make it a habit of making enemies, however, or of trying to get back at people for modest insults.  I might agree with the author about the 2004 Ohio election, since I was there at the time.  But we went over that rather thoroughly eight years ago, and it's OVER.

      My suggestion for long-term survival in this and all worlds is to let bygones be bygone, and not waste one's time or positive energy trying to get even.


    •  I'd clarify what I meant by "only comment" (0+ / 0-)

      but that would defeat the purpose.

      It seems curiosity has killed the cat that had my tongue.
