View Diary: Kos: The cover-up is worse than the crime. (259 comments)

Comment Preferences

  •  This is swiftboating. (8+ / 0-)

    Ignore any requests for reasonable discourse, ignore any valid rebuttals, and simply repeat the smear again and again and again. Hammer away at it. Get it out there. There's not an ice cube's chance in hell that she'll delete this diary, because it would defeat its entire purpose.

    What makes this a concern troll, of course, is that the attacker is masquerading as one of us, and couching the lie in the form of a question or request instead of attacking directly.

    The idea is not to engage in conversation, but simply to get the question out there and destroy the trust that exists in this community - the same community  this person claims to value so highly.

    She/he will respond to this comment (if she/he even bothers, given the selectivity of her responses to those opportunities to repeat the smear once more) with a lame excuse to any observations about her posting habits, repeat the 'purity' and concern angle, and then repeat the smear again, all the while throwing in lots of references to "our" "we" and "us."

    The only ingredient missing is the "I'm a progressive/liberal/Democrat/regular reader" line.

    No, wait, she BEGAN this piece of BS with that very statement. Ding ding ding ding! We have a winner!
