        i'd have a hard time voting for mcauliffe, but voting against cuccinelli would leave me no choice.

        from this post, it sounds like armstrong had a long meltdown on his blog. i know nothing about it, but am curious.

          observed in the public sphere revolving around his site and political choices. I know nothing about his private life and certianly didn't meant to convey that I did.

              Mar '08. The Puma crowd around Alegre and Linfar emigrated the opposite direction...from here to Mydd. They were joined by cranks from Hillaryis44.org. Mydd still had some great front-pagers, but the rec list was became mostly Hillaryis44 racist inspired tropes with Jerome banning even innocuous Obama supporters while he himself kept posting diaries "showing" how Hillary would win via super delegates, etc.  Last time I went back ('09 or '10) to check I found diaries on the rec list with one rec (one was on penis enlargement or somesuch spam).

              The genius of Kos is to take largely a hands-off attitude to posters. Jerome went the opposite direction during the primaries and achieved the opposite result of Kos' success.

              months ago I tried to check my old diaries there several times but the site was always down. Some folks here thought it was temporary, but it proved permanent to date.

              No one knows the exact date it closed. No one seems to care or to have noticed. Google has no results of folks talking about it in the last few years.

              What a way to end a once popular blog....
