    You wrote a nice diary that made it into Community Spotlight. You wouldn't want to jeopardize that.

      than put on appearances.

      If I ruined my image on DailyKOS, would it effect my social life? I think not. In fact, I think my girlfriend would be relieved.

        Still, it is possible to be honest with someone without insulting them.

          that people who curse more, lie less. I don't know if that's true but I like the idea.

          I'm constantly aware of self-censorship and I'm entirely opposed to it. My verbal spar with ffour may have been too acerbic for public consumption (then again, these days, almost everything is), but no one likes to be misquoted. I certainly don't.

          I apologize to you, BentLiberal, to ffour, crose, and the remainder of decent human beings that may be reading this.

            good diary. There was some controversy over it, but it was still well-constructed. So from my own selfish point-of-view, I'd like to see more good diaries from you not marred by the bad comments.  But I do understand your pov on self-censorship, etc.

            Cheers, BL
