    And so was the comment it was replying to, if you want to get technical -- the first one was a general insult to the diarist that was personal in nature. The second was too.

    •  Yeah.... (3+ / 0-)

      The first one was certainly more of a DBAD rule...Definitely not right, but harder to make a judgement call about, especially since people choose to uprate the "fuck you" comment and not to HR the original dickish comment --- at the time at least --- I haven't been back there yet before writing this comment.

      I've gotten comments like that in diaries of mine, but I find it much more effective to neutralize those types of comments by showing why the comment was absurd, without the "fuck you."

      If a diary is otherwise being well-received, you have the strength of community opinion on your side, and dismissing a comment like that with a "fuck you" isn't rising above that comment, it's sinking to the same level.

      Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.
