  •  Yeah, the HR On Sight thing seems nasty to me. (6+ / 0-)

    People take notions, though. NOTHING is going to make dKos their version of perfect. There will always be disagreement.

    Actually, I've read quite a few of the gun things and while the comments are sometimes heated and unpleasant, it was worse, imo, before The Great Purge.

    Some people feel their point is just too important.

    I will say I consider the current defensive posture of most RKBAers an improvement.

      •  THIS.... (5+ / 0-)

        The ban hammer didn't fall fast enough.

        This is the top of the slippery slope.

        This is a desire for actual control over somebody versus doing your bit to flag something inappropriate.

        This is where people's ego's get sucked into the mix and they end up acting like they are less educated than they truly are.

        The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

          When you HR a comment or tip jar -- thereby declaring a post so unfit for public dissemination that it should be hidden from all but TUs, with full knowledge that the author will come under pressure to temper subsequent posts to avoid spinning vases and worse -- what can possibly be your intent but to indicate your "desire for actual control over somebody"? Thus, I consider HOS a matter of degree, not kind.

          Fwiw I've been here several years, had TU status for most of that time, and have declared personal HOShad on I think 3 people. Two were openly right-wing agitators who joined in bare-faced dishonesty, having zero intention of being in community with us and even less intention of helping elect more and better Democrats; and one was just a brazen, poisonous hater. To them and their ilk, I brandish my 5 daily donuts and shriek:
