  •  Thank you, I don't know of anybody in the, (26+ / 0-)

    as you call it, True Progressives camp that is disrespecting commonmass in this way.

    Can you please not make it about Rox/Sux just this fucking once? We are talking about a seriously crappy thing being done to someone I respect. And a lot of other people that you call "True Progressives (tm)" respect.

    Could you can the divisive BS for one diary please? This is serious.

      It's a favorite Conspiracy Theory among us "True Progressives" that there are these hidden secret Facebook groups mocking us and planning our destruction.

      The sort of group Commonmass is talking about, MBNYC is calling CT among us paranoid "True Progressives".

      You know how hard it is for him to resist taking a swipe, even in a diary about nothing at all to do with the various factional conflicts on this site.

      What an asshat.

      And, Commonmass, it's almost inevitable that any sort of moving on will be nattered and chattered about behind your back.  My own 67 year old dad who lost his wife of 20 years was dating again about 6 months after she had passed away, and of course various people in the family had conniptions about it.  

      I said "Eh, fuck 'em, Pop, it's your life, not theirs.  Be happy, man."

      Same to you, comrade.  :)   Be happy, man.  It's your life, not theirs.

    •  Excuse me... (5+ / 0-)

      ...I fucking hate Rox/Sux. As far as I'm concerned, it's a plague on this site and the movement itself. In almost ten years of being part and even part of the broader leadership of the Progressive Movement, I've never seen anything as ugly, petty or destructive. The 2008 primaries at least had an ending, this? I'm not so sure.

      I also saw what I saw, right here on DK. I'm not on my own computer until tomorrow, so no access to any bookmarks, but if need be, I'll document what I'm saying.

      But if I turn out to be correct in my theory, after this callout, I expect you to take a stand as well. Commonmass is a profoundly decent human being to begin with, but even if he were not, it would be morally repugnant to say the things he avers were said. Not to someone in mourning. Not ever.

      If, however, I am wrong, I'll acknowledge that publicly and offer an unreserved apology. Full stop. No qualifiers.

      But either way, this division needs to be healed. That much, one would hope we can all agree on.

      Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.

          ...I know you'd really like to have a conversation with me, given that you seem to respond to my comments with some regularity and equally have some idea of how I behave online, by your own unsolicited admission. That's fine, attention sluts like yours truly don't really mind.

          Up to a point.

          But since you seem to really, really want this chat, here you go: the sad fact is that I don't think you're all that interesting. Nothing personal, but really, I don't. That's the reason I habitually ignore you. Not your politics, whatever they may be, it's just that you strike me as rather one-dimensional, certainly not as clever as you seem to believe you are, nor very original, and finally the cardinal sin, utter predictability. Nor do I value your assessment of much of anything, including that fascinating subject, myself. Understood?

          So here's the deal: if you want to take this to Kosmail, by all means. Maybe I'm wrong about you, who knows, it wouldn't be the first time.

          But the throw-away wannabe putdowns, please, don't waste the effort. Poop from a migrating bird would more deeply affect the Rock of Gibraltar than I care about them.

          Fuck me, it's a leprechaun.

            Pass on the kosmail -- private, frank exchanges with you are ill-advised.  Best to keep it out in the open.  You're very good at the personal jab, and I happily cede that real estate to you, fwiw.  But your theory, which is all that I'm really interested in, seems to be coming apart at the edges -- exposing more about you than your Pride costume did, Sweetheart.

            So yes, I still await your diary on the matter.  If it's anything like your Unreserved, Full Stop, No Qualifiers Apology wrt this diary, I'm sure it will be well worth the wait.
