  •  Well then (7+ / 0-)

    why don't I just send it on to Top Comments for tomorrow night.

    •  You guys are the top chiefs of top comment! (7+ / 0-)

      Wouldn't that be like trying to sell snow cones to Eskomos (sp?)

      Anyway, I can never remember how the system works.

      What I've discovered in the past is if I make a big deal about how great a comment is one of the responsible smart people like yourself comes along and sends it in for me.  

      Sheesh, now I'm shamed. OK I know there's a topcomments@gmail.com or something like that.  Can you tell me again so I can be an upstanding member of the community once again?

      Oh, wait!! No don't tell me, This is the Top Comments main post so the instructions will be at the top of the post. Ho, ho, ho. Sometimes I impress even myself.

      And I already know how to copy that time stamp thingy.

    •  Hi Steveningen, I submitted Renzo's cool puns and (4+ / 0-)

      it was really easy. Having this TopComments mail center is a brilliant idea. Now I feel silly. This is a lesson for me on how easily I can fall into lazy habits, which then become hard to break, even after one has the knowledge.

      For so many years, whenever I'd see potential Top Comments I'd never submit them because I figured it would be a lot of trouble - and that incorrect thought became my reality.

      I used to post late at night after working 14 or more hours so it was my decompression time and I didn't want to have to think, or focus, or anything like what I'd been doing all day.

      Last time, I submitted one, was so good, I thought dang, I really have to do this, so I logged out of Daily Kos, and into to my gmail account, after finding a pencil to write down Topcomments@gmail.com.

      My subjective experience of the DaillyKos Top Comments place was sort of like a black clowd, with a caption, " Oh, damn, not another thing to learn and have to concentrate on,"  What an amazing, and curious experience to discover all it involved was clicking on your orange box and a whole text mail was already laid out for me.

      The even odder thing is I could really sit here all the rest of night writing about a great variety of feelings about this without considering this as much "work" as having to click on on unfamiliar orange link for the first time. When if you told most normal people, or students in high school  - Now please write a 2,000 to 3,000  word essay about your experience using the Top Comments text mail system for the first time we'd hear weeping and gnashing of teeth.

      Here's what I sent. I hope his is correct.

      Tara the Antisocial Social Worker  starts a thread mentioning her nail clippers being confiscated which our master punster renso capetti uses to "paint the town" with a series of most excellent nail puns.

          is a top comment comment.
          puns make me miss Sardonyx..
          one of the all time great commenteers!
          and because he was a pun, punctuation, and punctuality champion. and I mean that, altho some people may be Greenwich with envy..
          Sar always made sure
          that
          if it was 7 o'clock on the koskoast
          it was 10:00 o'clock on theastcoast. perfection used to check with him for re-calibration.
          I digress but it's the only thing I've got to wear.

          decent wages don't eliminate jobs. Republicans eliminate jobs; and workers, and prospects, and then excuse it all and call for more austerity. there is no end to their ignorant, arrogant avarice. only political dinosaurs support their treachery.
