  •  Noddy: I can speak to that a bit (6+ / 0-)

    I think, even though I'm not  an RKBA  member.

    There are people on this site, though, who deliberately provoke, especially in the RKBA diaries or with the members of the group, discussions that -- for lack of a better term -- quickly erode.

    One of the most provocative of such users has actually been banned under several usernames for having behaved impolitely, uncivilly, or downright nastily not to mention otherwise breaking Kos' rules in RKBA diaries.

    Some users here regularly interrupt those diaries with insulting comments, for the sake of provocation. Many of that group would like to see the RKBA supporters denied the right to post here; to justify that, they cite persecution by RKBA members and supporters when they are called on their unsupported or outrageous statements or their demands that we abandon Constitutional rights.

    This is not the first diary calling for a ban on RKBA as a group since last Friday. Those of us who -- members of RKBA or not -- find that the events of last Friday are not sufficient reason to throw away our rights are being pummelled with comments ranging from questioning our parentage and intelligence and liberality and credentials as Democrats to accusations that we are all "nuts" and "fetishists" -- and those are the, ahem, "clean versions" of such accusations.
