  •  I thought it was great, exactly right on (none)
    I didn't post -- who wants to be kicked off? Villified?

    I don't spend a lot of time here any more, because exactly those two things happen all too often. And other reasons.

    You have a GREAT vision, sir! THANK YOU for speaking up! Not everyone will.

    Stand tall, stand strong.

    Kos, Armando, others here take out after people (say, Republicans) on the front page, and really shred them. Others post here seemingly unable to write 5 words without tossing in swearwords -- how offensive or useful is that?

    What's good for the goose is good for the gander. If you can't take the heat, don't get into a public role where the salsa might come flyin' your way. By which I mean to say, if someone's going to be in charge here, sooner or later their POV will be trashed by someone. And for others to rise to their defense -- well, they chose the spotlight.

    Any group is going to develop group-think; of course it has happened here. That's the way humans are.

    So this blog can have people post about being raped or being an addict, and their posting about a terrible painful experience in the past is -- AOK... But you posting about your pain at feeling this blog had potential it chooses to ignore is -- what? Invalid? Over-the-top? It's no different, no matter how many people say it is. You were just coming from a place of idealism and pain.

    Why would people feel defensive about that?

    PLEASE keep making your dreams a reality.

    Thank you.
