    the last 24 comments by him are all tip jars.

    •  what? (3+ / 0-)

      So the diarist was a guest, I posted it, my name is Erin. Nice to meet ya, Shahryar.

      I've since asked if the writer would like to respond, but he's in Scotland, so he's sleeping.

      I'm not sure what the expectations are from some of the posts here - should we post a diary and then sit and stare at the comments in case there are questions or accusations? This has never really been brought up before. I guess nothing else merited a conversation in your book?

      We have a ton of writers for our diaries and not all of the views expressed are always going to represent every single view of the party or of every single person in the party. We're human. We all have different perspectives. We like to put those perspectives out for discussion - this one seems to have had quite a bit even without the writer's input.

      I promise that as soon as I get a response from him, I will post it. But I'm also not sure where you get that the last 24 comments by him were all tip jars...

        I would tip you, but the man took away my tips.

        If you check the NationalAtheistParty's Profile page, it shows you your comment history.  If someone only has tip jars in their comment history then they are considered "Hit & Run" diarists.  People who write diaries but do not bother to stick around and interact with the people who read them.

        In the world of dkos etiquette, this is considered bad taste even though some of our most distinguished guests here at dkos (like Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren) do this as well, they are usually criticized for it.  

        You did 'recommend" comments shown in the diary which does indicate you are watching it (which is a good thing).  However, when people start debating the intent of the author, it helps if a comment is made for clarification.  

        You have commented multiple times in this diary now and I would think that should satisfy even the most harsh critics.

        "Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour..."

          Of course I'd love to answer every comment but it's just not possible. Etiquette or not I also really do feel that it's more interesting to hear our readers' points of view once we post a diary. It's a personal preference but the last thing I want to do is offend anyone (I'm an atheist for chrissakes, I have manners!)
