    We're talking about a comment on a blog here. Full stop.

    And while we're doing that, I submit that the more cynical members of this community are thinking, "Ah yes, one of the RKBA folks throws up a diary about being victimized by a nasty comment. A change of subject, how convenient. What a bunch of [expletives]".

    Make sense?

    Fuck you, I put on pants yesterday.

      ...is that I have not, in the diary, nor have I seen anyone in the comments, say that anyone who so chooses cannot discuss any other subject that they choose to.

      No one here is trying to change the subject, only bring focus upon a flagrant and disturbing violation of site rules.

      We cannot respond to more than one thing at a time?

      I keep seeing people say that we're trying to change the subject, and I just don't get it.

      Where have any of us said that anyone cannot discuss whatever they want to?

      Yes, I often dress as a pirate. Your point?

        you didn't say that.

        But please assume that you're not dealing with a bloody moron here. You titled your diary

        I Have Been Threatened With Murder
        ... which is quite simply not the case, and you admit as much. Rather, you take offense, rightly in my view, that someone made an asinine comment that could be read as making a generalized, not personal, threat. Yesterday afternoon, to be precise, and he or she hasn't been banned. Yet.

        Presumably, a banning would make all the difference in the world if you were actually concerned about said threat. Or probably not.

        Equally a presumption is that you've figured out that meta diaries are catnip for Kossacks.

        And you do all of this against the backdrop of a site convulsed with grief and outrage, some of which is being directed at your group. Unfairly in my view, but then again, I don't have a dog in this fight.

        So yes, if you don't terribly mind, I'm going to treat this as what it appears to be: not so much a disinterested appeal for admin intervention – you've been here long enough to know how that works – or the articulation of a concern about your personal safety, but as a big shiny thing thrown in the general direction of a bunch of cats.

        Lastly, you should know that I'm generally sympathetic to your larger goals. But horse shit is horse shit.

        Fuck you, I put on pants yesterday.
