  •  Hate to say it, but this and others clearly think (6+ / 0-)

    that they have carte blanche to act like trolls in certain diaries, anyway. Seems apparent to me they've gotten explicit signals from the PTB that more fervent Obama critics are fair game for trolley. Guess I'm saying don't expect the rules to be enforced, as we saw in your previous diary.

      I need a decoder ring to translate my signals from the PTB!!!!! woooo -ooooooo.  and, FYI, "this" usually refers to a thing unless you provide a noun for the descriptor.  Are you suggesting I'm a thing?  That would be so not like you.  Hahahahahahaha!!!!!!   You really hate opposing opinions.  Sad.

    •  Oh, no worries. I realized that long ago. I know (5+ / 0-)

      what I'm dealing with.

      Here's the logic of it all:

      The PTB claim that this is a progressive blog with its main mission being helping elect more and better Democrats.

      The PTB claim that this is not a tool or a mouthpiece of the DNC or the corporatist Democratic party establishment.

      The PTB claim that there are site guidelines applied to all equally and fairly.

      Those are the claims...  People then can compare reality vs. those claims...

      Is it a progressive blog with its main mission being helping elect more and better Democrats, or is it another tool of the corporatist Party establishment?

      Are site guidelines being fairly applied to all members, or is there blatant disregard of them, allowing the targeting of some people?

      This stuff is very easy to discern.  If the place is legit and on the up and up, people will continue supporting it.  If it's just a front, it will damage its reputation.

        My brother loves this crap. No idea why.

        Here's a fitting tribute, nonetheless.
