    That was 10 days before the diary was posted.  I don't believe I fall into the "whatever it was, wasn't enough" category.  As I've said, I was very happy with the amount posted on the subject after the series of diaries.   I was not happy with the amount posted beforehand, and neither (it would seem) was a large segment of the dkos population.

    Clearly, I'm interested in this subject, and I did think there were major time constraints on us, which led to much of the frustration.  I appreciate the fact that you, at least, were willing to engage us in a dialogue.  Thanks.

      truly, I do. I just can't judge what 'large' vs 'vocal' segment means. To be fair, there was also more material coming out the further along we went. It's easier to write when you have reliable sources to cite. Not all of the contemporary discussion was about Bev Harris, but a good deal of it was at that time, because that was one of the few available sources. I was, am, and will be reluctant to rely on her alone, and I will (as you know...we talked about it) be reluctant to cite anything with fraud as the subject without verification, whereas voting irregularity is a more accepted frame (never use 'frame' without an example, but here's a perfect example).

      Note also my comment elsewhere to mikepridmore. part of the natural evolotion of this is that more of us are engaged in the dialogue, which is a good thing.

      You, specifically, never questioned motives, and I appreciate that, too.
