      spoiled your cred with this stellar admission.

      Seriously, you should be HR'd on sight.

        Don't make yourself ridiculous by claiming it's an "admission" unless you've got more to go on than that. (Speaking of comments being HRable)

          he was serious and you know that.

          Some things are HR'able on site. I was not the only one noting in that diary that this should be one of them.

            Like most of us, you're human (aren't you?) Humans make mistakes. This may be one of yours. Let it go.

            Let us all have the strength to see the humanity in our enemies, and the courage to let them see the humanity in ourselves.

                Not the most sophisticated humor. But, seriously, someone would actually pay for a Kos ID? I wouldn't piss in a bucket for one. I don't think anyone, except you would. That's what the joke was. At least that's what I thought it was. Why, is the radio telling you something different?

                  What does the radio have to do with this?

                  Anyone who has been here for any length of time at all knows that the lower your UID, the more leeway a lot of posters will give you, because you're seen as a "longtime user" and therefore, automatic respect is built in to a certain extent.

                  And that's fine, in and of itself. But it also makes a low UID attractive for any number of reasons. Don't kid yourself into thinking there's nobody on earth that would pay actual money for that attractiveness, even if you wouldn't.

                            to tease you. Actually, Luna, I am just kidding around. You are taking all this a little too seriously. Doc2 is a purchased ID? Somebody did an invasion of the blogger snatchers on the original in order to avail themselves of the fabulous benefits of a low UID? Seriously? And then, of course, the name - Lunachickie - kind of sounds like Looney, which couples with the craziness of the point - if you can call it that - you were making, and you can see why I implied that you were nuts with that radio crack. To my immense amusement you picked up on that, which allowed me to extend the joke, something we incredibly witty people always look for. And here you are again, begging for more. Luna, sometimes it's best just to let things go, but I am looking forward to your reply to this reply because you just cannot let things go, can you? It's kind of baked in. Let's just continue this back-and-forth for years if you have the stamina, and believe me I most certainly I do. Then we could collaborate on a book or something, just a thought. Your turn.

                            You cannot resist, can you? Well, you are taking it pretty seriously since you took the time to write back with real Italics (good job!), the ungrammatical hyphenation of "carefully crafted" not withstanding. I am so glad you think that I put a lot of effort into this, but I confess that it only took a minute, and that can mean only 2 things. First, I am a very gifted (and witty!) writer. Second, your are not. I base that second point on the idea you express that one can have a "run-on" paragraph. A run-on sentence would have been inexcusable, I agree. But a "run-on" paragraph? Is that something you heard on the radio?

I didn't have an outsized ego until your writing started convincing me that I was much smarter than I thought I was. After all, what is an "outsized ego"? I am guessing that it's a descriptor applied by someone who is just being beaten in an argument. Hey, that reminds me; do you think anyone actually rents mules anymore. Well, enough chit-chat. Don't want to keep you from your radio show.

                            But there's a simple way to end my "hobby" and that is not to reply to me. BTW, what do you have against hobbies? Since we have an apparently mutual hobby of writing to each other, I would have thought that I could fling the word "desperately"around as well. But, see, I am just not the kind of person who thinks about hobbies as being desperately needed. Nice use of the Italics again though.

                            and so on, again and I think it makes tremendous sense. Clearly, someone with your history is going to find it a little difficult to parse standard English text, and I sympathize. But let me point out that you've just swung from essentially calling me a nazi to calling me honey child. So, let me ask you this: Are the mood swings very bad? I assume you are seeing someone, and don't tell me the radio.

                            Anyway, this has been fun. I am pretty certain I will be hearing from you again shortly unless, of course, you want to make me "hang it up", in which case you won't reply to this reply. But we both know you will be back with another reply very shortly, don't we?

                            I'm in for the long haul. It's just like I told you yesterday, Luna. You will always reply. You always have to be in there trying to have the last word. But that will just never happen and we both know why. But keep it up. I am enjoying this. I am telling you, Luna, or perhaps the person who bought the original Lunachickie's UID and is now just messing with people, in a couple of years I am going to put our little collection together into a book. Between your obsessiveness and my hilarious banter, I think it will do well. Profits to dkos, of course.

                            Hey, my amazing wit to one side for a moment, how are those mood swings today? Still a problem? I am just trying to help out here. You know, dear, the radio can't help you on this one. You really need to reach out to a medical professional.

                            Also, you would be just amazed at the number of people on dkos who have emailed me about you. Apparently, you have annoyed the heck out of a lot of people here. I mean, really annoyed. But, I want you to know that I have been defending you. I just told them that they also would blurt out bizarre, incomprehensible things if they had a radio with them at all times with special messages just for them. So, I got your back, sister. No, don't thank me. I am with you all the way.

                            there's a simple way to end my "hobby" and that is not to reply to me.
                            How about being responsible for your own actions, "Anne"? Otherwise, whether you want to believe it or not, yes, you are desperately seeking attention. I guess I just can't stand to see lonely little children being ignored....

                            of your fantastic, seemingly endless missives, Luny. I really just enjoy them so much, and I so glad that you are being so kind as to respond to each and every reply I post. We should have a book full of hilarious banter to publish in no time. Tell me more about the time you spent in an institution, or is that one of those blank periods? But, hey, I am not here to direct you. You just write about anything you want to or the radio tells you to. It's all just fine.

                            BTW, what's the fascination with children all about? You "can't stand to see lonely little children ignored." Do you spend a lot of time hanging around playgrounds? That may not be wise for someone like you. With your mood swings and voices, someone might get the wrong idea. Best stay indoors. Take care, Luny. I just wish the best for you, but look forward to your next caring missive in the next, what, 30 min?

                            You actually laughed out loud, did you? Well, I think that is just so brave of you. I just never know when something I say to someone like you - with your affliction - will be found amusing. Look, I know you have trouble reading, and I think it's just great that you can even get 1%. Don't beat yourself up about it. Just try to enjoy life and keep those urges at bay. You know the ones.

                            If I had a gigantic head - like say the Elephant Man - I would have trouble any time of day, not just at night. Do you always make fun of disabled people, or just disabled children?

                    A search like this:

                    turns up absolutely nothing relevant. (The part that reads -site:dailykos.com is there to exclude hits from this site.)

                    Do you have any other searches that would show that there's a market for low dailykos UIDs?
