    I don't associate with assholes who can't empathize.  Go fuck yourself.

    •  oh i can empathize. just not with people who (0+ / 0-)

      try to insult the community without really investing in the community. we get all kinds of people here. sleeper trolls, red state forays, etc... i'm not going to empathize with someone who's sole purpose of going out of their way to comment was to denigrate the large portion of the community. how do i know he's not just some sleeper troll?

      like i said, if he was someone who had clearly invested in the community even if i hadn't heard of them. but the record is there in his profile. we get people trying to start shit all the time in order to denigrate the community. generally done by people who don't invest themselves in the community.

      so yeah, after seeing this happen umpteen million times over a very active 7 years of community membership, color me skeptical.

      and no wonder you didn't enjoy the diary - you don't understand snark. snark is not a cover to throw heavy insults at someone. but oh well.

      •  still don't agree with you (0+ / 0-)

        The commenter voiced his/her opinion on the way out.  That's more of like an exit survey rather than an all out assault on the community.  If you want to keep trying to justify your rudeness by minimizing this person then you certainly have the right to do so.  A very small handful of others will echo your laughter and you can all revel in your ignorance.  8 years.  That should speak something to you.  It shouldn't matter if someone doesn't have a rockstar posting history.  

        I've been a member of this community for as long as you, and I don't accept the "trust me I've seen it all" argument.  There are those that leave this site in far more vebally abusive ways than this commenter.  This is a very, very tough time for a lot of us.  Tensions are going to be running high.  It's important to understand that when measuring your response to people freaking out.

        •  they have no posting history. roughly one comment (0+ / 0-)

          a year. people that have been here one day have more mojo than he does. he has 13 comments. has tipped no one.

          he doesn't participate in the community. he threatens to leave said community he doesn't participate in, he insults the diarist and the more than 200 people recd, and he expects us to feel bad for him that we're losing his non-participation? really?

          btw - getting 200 recs is a big deal - look right to the rec list there and see how many accomplish that feat. better yet, visit jotter's nightly list of stats.

          and i'll just stand by my 7 year very active history here as the example of what kind of person i am.

          have a good day.
