    Way to waste your diary for the day.

    •  I want this up there on that list (4.00)
      until that other diary falls off. Then I'll unrecommend this one too.

      But I'm uncomfortable with that diary not having a response on the list, even if it comes in a somewhat aggressive form.

      Republicans aren't evil. They're just wrong.

      •  This is getting childish (4.00)
        don't you think??

        And I DO mean on both sides...

        We should ALL be busy calling and emailing to push for a filibuster...instead here we are (or most of you are) bickering over this crap.

        I agree that shitty diaries are getting recommended...but isn't the shitty diary itself the place to discuss that?

        This is taking up space on the recommended list itself...and I don't think that's funny or good either...

        •  yes its childish and also 'uncivil' (4.00)
          i am a firm believer that you should talk to people on the Internet the way you would talk to them in person...

          i highly doubt these 'gentlemen' would be saying 'go fuck yourself' so easily if they were in a bar or a public park...

          and if they would, then i think we should schedule fist fights for the Yearly Kos convention and stream them live on this site...i want to see some men take their words seriously...

          preferably shirtless and lathered in mineral oil...

          I met Ray McGovern. He's an American hero.

      •  I troll rated DHinMi (none)
        I can't think of anything more unproductive then trying to whittle down a "list" of productive members.

        Go fuck yourself DH - whoever you think you are.

        Take your fuckin' "list" and shove it.

        There. Done.

        •  Fuck Yourself. Hard. (1.00)
          Defend slander.  Fine.  

          Shows you have zero regard for truth, consequences, and personal and collective responsibility.

          Really, go fuck yourself if you think it's worse to call people out for mindlessly propogating slander.  

          I suppose if someone propogates slander against you by your real name, I'll just step aside, because, ewwww, it would be, like, ohmigod, soooooooooooooooo mean and stuff to defend someone's honor and demand substantiation for outrageous charges.

          If you really think this diary was all that bad, you have the moral compass of a reptile, and the mind to match.

            There are many of us stupid amoral reptiles here then. Perhaps there should be, I dunno, a purge. Or whatever you do with the people who don't think "right"

              I mean, that's pretty much the same as challenging people to exercise sceptism, judgement and responsibility.  Jeeze, it's such an awful challenge, isn't it?

              •  I'm not (4.00)
                talking about "challenging". I'm talking about telling people that if they think your naming names game sucks, they're amoral stupid reptiles.
                •  Great! Ignore Context! (none)
                  Please, give me a break.  He didn't just say it "sucked," and to claim that's all he said is dumb or dishonest.  

                  And the "naming names" verbiage is frivolous.  There was nothing McCarthyite about posting a list to which everyone had access.  And you were the one who talked about purges.

                  In fact, you're engaging in a whole pattern of misrepresntation, and hyperbolic McCarthyite analogies.  Give me a fucking break, and take your idiotic persecution claims to someone dumb enough to find them valid.

                  •  Sheesh (4.00)
                    Now I am a stupid, amoral, idiotic, McCarthyite reptile. This is getting better all the time! :-D
                    •  Well, I Guess You ARE Stupid... (none)
                      ...if you think I ever suggested you are a McCarthyite.  

                      Either that, or I was giving you credit for honesty that's not justified.

                      Since nowhere did I call you or any of my antagonists McCarthyites, and since I was assailing them for hiding behind accusations that it was me who was acting in a McCarthyite manner, and since any competent reading of the comments would demonstrate that interpretation, I guess I'll exempt you from my criticism of people who were recommending diaries mindlessly.  Based on your demonstrated inability to see my clearly presented argument, you apparently lack the ability to exercise competent judgement that I attributed to the average Daily Kos participant.

                      The revolution will not be televised, but we'll analyze it to death at The Next Hurrah.

          •  Thanks (none)
            for demonstrating the schoolyard bully you are.

            I feel sorry that you're such a nasty person.  

            •  Amazing How Much You Think... (none)
              ...you know about someone based upon some blips on a screen, huh?

              I don't need your pity.  Save it for yourself.

              Well, on second thought, maybe you don't need any more self-pity...

              •  Blah .. (none)
                "you know about someone based upon some blips on a screen, huh?."

                You made those initial judgements, and started the name calling, and started the personal attacks and have presented yourself as a nasty person here.

                You're right, all I know about you, are the nasty blips you present.

                Others here, seem to agree.

    •  I agree (none)
      Fuckin' hypocritical.
