    Look what happened to MB, how mistreated he was.

    •  He did a nice job, but was terribly stretched (0+ / 0-)

      He also cleaned out some bad situations quite clearly.

      It was a magnificent effort on his part, but poorly planned out by kos: he needed far more coverage and backup, a literal group of moderators doing similar things.

      Anyone attempting to help as a mod (i.e., mods should be helpful more than police, IMHO) will encounter resistance from entrenched interests - that goes with the job role.

        I"m getting really tired of reading/hearing you complain what a bad guy Kos is.

        If you don't like his rules, his site, well...

        •  You seem to be taking critiques of the site (0+ / 0-)

          owner rather personally.  Are you implying that's all I do, because you seem to enjoy making grand generalizations and coming up with rather simplistic, black/white solutions - much as I'm seeing from kos in this "new rule."

          Great that you support that!

          Don't expect to push people out who sincerely disagree.  Nor should you expect to silence folks whose equally worthy opinions to voice you happen to not enjoy.

          •  No, I "seem" to be wondering why people (0+ / 0-)

            who are so unhappy with the way this site is run still want to post here.  It's really that simple.  And I've replied to you because I've read several comments in recent diaries where you've said how bad things are run, i.e., how Kos runs this site.

            I've been at sites that I don't like the way they're run.  And I leave, period.  No muss, no fuss.  There are thousands of political sites.
