    It was either a surrogate, or someone else who picked up the snippets from You Tube.

    Nine Diaries were posted in fairly quick succession.

    The videos were indistinct and very hard to hear what was being said, or by whom. There wasn't much in the way of accompanying text. Please don't confuse the video people have seen tonight with that we were treated to that night.

    The Diarist didn't engage in comments and eventually Users started HR'ing the Tip Jars for spamming the site.

    I was one of those who HR'd. I dropped a single donut in the ninth tip jar.

    Later it became clear what had happened, but not until David Corn published a much higher quality video.

    Kos went ballistic ... I think a Pulitzer Prize for the Blog disappeared that night, but in the end he accepted that Kossacks acted in good faith, and were actual genuinely trying to protect the site with the normal moderation tools. Of course hiding the Tip Jars doesn't remove the Diaries.

    Not our finest hour, but hindsight is always 20:20

    I hope that the quality of debate will improve,
    but I fear we will remain Democrats.
