  •  It's getting stupid on main page DK (7+ / 0-)

    I've been throwing hide rates like crazy.  People need to calm down.

    •  Agreed (and sorry if this is getting OT) (7+ / 0-)

      but the intelligence level even on main DK is still about eleventy bajillion times higher than anywhere else in cyberspace, even with the hysterics.

      What is it with the stridently right-wing, openly insulting, Coulter-esque commenters who dominate most message boards?  I love sharing ideas with intelligent conservatives (and having them challenge my own), but I'm not going to bother with people who throw around "libtard" and "Democrap party".

        Some of the most worthless, pathetic fucking dipshits spend all their time there, while berating others for not engaging in "productive" work.

        And they moan about the "liberal media".  Then why do those morons post there?  I say shut up, get off those boards, and listen to El Rushbo if that's your idea of news.

        And on the other side, if the DK main site had been around in 2000, it might have been Nader Central.  You know, "progressives must teach the Democratic Party a lesson" and all that shit.

      I know many of us here sometimes bristle at the thought of running into the self-defeating purist on the main page, but I don't know about the rest of you but I'm not going to cede DailyKos to those sort of people.

      When I encounter that crap I push back against it and hard and there are many good non DKE diarists who do the same thing. I'd hate to ever see this site go the way of MyDD especially when there are so many people who are clearly sane and pragmatic, regardless of their views might be such as myself.

      Thankfully those who actually get on the main page are quite sane, but sometimes you get the ridiculous rec list diary that makes me want to rip my hair out.
