    I wish I could say I'm surprised you failed to muster the integrity to do so.

    Shame on you.

      your breath but I have a real life that takes precedence over you hurt feelings. Since it would seem your only participation in this diary has been to defend an egregious personal attack on the diarist, you may as well have uprated his every comment.

      Perhaps you need to familiarize yourself with kos' edict on Participating in someone else's diary because you and the user who started this thread have violated it:

      Walking into someone's diary is like walking into someone's home. You are a guest. Act accordingly. That doesn't mean you can't disagree. It just means you have to be civil and courteous and limit your arguments to substance. [..]

      So, my tolerance for dickishness will be least in group diaries, followed by personal diaries, followed by your own diaries.

      Bottom line: If you don't like someone, ignore or argue PURELY on the facts. If you refuse to heed and seek out your foes to shit all over their diaries, I will zap you. You don't need to go after the same people every day to remind them that yes, you still don't like them. [..]

       If an ally (defined as someone who supports your point of view) goes off the deep end, then it's the responsibility of the diarist or other allies to make clear that such behavior is not tolerated. [..]

      So diarists get to choose -- their diaries can either be zones of civility, or they can be mosh pits.

      My advice to you, as was yours to you ally, move on.

      •  You apologized for a lie (0+ / 0-)

        and replaced it with another.

        I said the exact opposite of what you claimed about the commenter - that he was being dickish and deserved HR -- and again called the commenter my 'ally' based on that lie.

        Because you simply replaced one lie for another, my comment stands. Shame on you.

          My observations of your behavior and your ally's stands. I'm well finished with you, your insults, name calling and your nonsense. Good Day

          •  The only insults are yours. (0+ / 0-)

            You chose to lie and slander me because I noted your ratings behavior was inconsistent.

            Typical.

          and not to discuss the content of the diary. as such, i would suggest that you probably should go elsewhere and leave the conversation to those who are allies of the diarist and others who want to engage in constructive debate and dialogue.

          and a lot of the time raptavio, the only time i see you in comments is when you are playing police and not for discussion. just sayin'...

          •  And yet here you are (0+ / 0-)

            doing the same thing.

            But then, for you, as with MomCat, it's always all about whose ox is being gored, now isn't it?

              who is like minded thinker, and if you check the tip jar, which lists the tippers in chronological order, you'll not that i've been around this diary for a lot longer than you, and i've been around it because i happen to agree with it.

              you are around here for things other than agreement on the subject matter or debate on the subject matter. you are here to play police man, and if i had a buck for every time i saw you do that over the past 2 years or so, i'd be a rich lady.

              so basically, you should stick with diaries by folks you either agree with or diaries where you want to have a discussion on the subject matter of the diary. the only thing you're doing here is insulting someone who was originally here for support and debate and playing self appointed policeman.

              in short - you aren't interested in anything constructive here in this diary, only discord and disruption.

              i would also point my sig line out to you. it's very good food for thought. now, good day, sir.

              •  Great words (0+ / 0-)

                and yet I'd suggest they be advice you should heed as much as anyone.

                But it isn't about truth to you. It's about who the "like minded thinkers" are. So it doesn't matter to you whether the diarist behaved boorishly in the comments thread her own diary (and thus, by kos' own stated rules, invites more boorish behavior from others). It doesn't matter to you that MomCat chose to reply to a comment noting her own inconsistent behavior acting as "diary police" with lies and false accusations, because they're "like minded thinkers."

                If you, MomCat, and your usual allies, acting in your own role as "diary police", showed greater concern for truth rather than protecting your "like minded thinkers" from both criticism and accountability, you'd never find me calling you out for it.

                But as long as that's your modus operandi, though I may not go hunting for it, when I see it, I will call it out. Deal with it. Or improve your own conduct.
