  •  Though I think some of your questions (0+ / 0-)

    you raise in the three diaries you posted today (so far) are interesting, they are not especially topical except in a general way. Even the one challenging the NRA isn't linked to a recent pronouncement, which given their propensity to comment (usually inappropriately) in the wake of a gun tragedy is somewhat surprising.

    That's one critique I'll make. The culture here is to comment specifically on breaking news of one sort or another. Meta-commentary, or a more general critique such as the ones you offer here, are a specialized subset and not always well-received.

    The second is that even corporate (that is, collective) memberships here at Daily Kos often have a particular individual associated with a given post. Over time, that helps establish the group's bona fides. Without it, the post appears to be close to spam, published here only in the hope of driving traffic to the source.

    The third was mentioned above, but I'll repeat it here. Diarists who post without then engaging in dialogue with those who respond in comments don't generally develop a good reputation, or get much traffic over time.
