      I think about how much it ties into the issues you were discussing in your diary. Newbie issues. Expectations. Immediacy of "splash."

      I suspect she just does not understand the "seed," nature of dKos diaries, as if she wanted to jump straight to the "fruiting" culmination of a natural process. It takes patience, however, both in building a readership and in realizing the influence.

      There are many millions in this country who would like to see ... someone else in power. But there is no reasonable or acceptable path to that happening immediately or even in the very short term. Patience is required.

      Did you see some of the recommendations she got on the diary which frustrated her?! She was having impact, alright. I think her frustration was on the lack of comments within the triggering diary itself. :(
