    above to BigAlinWashSt above, but thanks.

    I get the feeling you think I'm being belligerent or somehow sarcastic, admittedly.

      And if I read your comment in the wrong way, I apologize.

      And you're absolutely right here:

      I know BigAl IRL, so I responded to him as any friend would.  I'm sure you can appreciate that.  
      •  Sure, though I have no idea why you might (2+ / 0-)

        assume my remark was anything but agreement with his sentiment, from my own personal perspective - I was going to write something with almost the same wording.  It's not the first time I've recommended a comment and doubled down on its expression for expressing an idea before I got the chance, but wanted to reinforce their having done so.

        To your latter point, being a friend with someone wouldn't seem to lend automatically towards others being treated as antagonists.

            Everyone here should be treated with equal respect until they prove otherwise in a given situation, I feel.  And you implicitly admitted to suspecting me of some form of subterfuge after my mentioning that suspicion above, despite having given no reason to do so.

            I certainly didn't expect to be treated like someone you know (although I have a reasonable awareness of your posts here), but also not treated warily - as if my intentions at Daily Kos, in this particular diary, with my UID, were somehow red flags for something untoward or even antisocial to worry on.

            I always say what I mean - there's nothing hidden here. Are you looking something?  Let's recap: I read the diary and commented that I felt kinship with a prior comment.

            There was nothing more to my initial action.  Having to explain so seems silly, to say the least.  My ego isn't besmirched, but I'm wondering if there's a larger point here and meta is often my area of interest.

            So, is this a clique thing I've wandered into?  Is this diary coded for an anti/rox schism?  Because I generally find those insipid - both here and on school playgrounds.
