  •  Lots? (15+ / 0-)

    Seriously, dude, if it was hidden with 2, that would be plenty, if it was only to hide it.  If it deserved more, it needed to be manually removed from the database by a tech.

    Saying that a typo deserves 'lots of HR's on it forever' is just silly.

    •  That my be your opinion (1+ / 0-)

      but my opinion is different .
      With lots of hide rates no one can ever say DKos didn't care , gave it a pass , wasn't concerned , etc etc etc .
      More hide rates don't cause the writer of the comment any harm . More hide rates don't hide it more . More hide rates on a single comment doesn't cause a banning .

      If it deserved more, it needed to be manually removed from the database by a tech.
      That's all fine but you can't honestly say that is what happens here on DKos . Your proposal doesn't fly . What you are proposing isn't something that happens , TPTB have said they don't want to be in the removing comments game . So I can't look at your solution as a real solution .

      That he was banned for the comment , even after it was widely reported to be a typo shows the seriousness .

      Seriously, dude,
      Very F'ing serious Dude !

          It was a typo that said something very bad .
          I believe the correct actions were taken .
          The proper steps were taken .
          I fault no one , not the commenter , not the hide raters , not the admins of this site .
          If it were to happen again that someone made the very same mistake , and this was a very unique combination of words , I would hope the same hide rating , banning until checked out etc , would happen again .

        all of his other comments (and encouraging others to do so) as well as the tip jar might be enough to cause an auto ban.
