    "By the way, let me remind all commenters that although news and comments and views are encouraged below, that you are still free to post your own diaries if you disagree with the views of the small number of us DailyKos members who have posted frequently on this subject from the U.S. and from Mexico."

    This "invitation" for comment seems to be intended to discourage critical comments.

    Really goes against the spirit of DKos.

    •  no, it has to do with specific complaints (6+ / 0-)

      Nearly every time I post a column, there's one particular whiner who claims that we are liars, dishonest, Stalinists, and Communists who prevent him from sharing his own opinion.

      In posting the perspectives I find interesting, I have no intention of silencing anyone else.  Someone who thinks I am completely full of sh** is welcome to keep saying so in the comments.

      But to go further and allege that I am part of some cabal who silences dissent is unreasonable.  I am no one other than a DailyKos member who posts his own diary.

      If you suggest a better way of phrasing the clear and obvious fact that my posting here does not silence you, then I will happily edit the diary to conform more to the"spirit of DKos."

      Seemed to be encouraging people who didn't want to be commenting strictly under the "umbrella" of this diarist, they could also assemble their own data and analysis of the situation in Mexico, as well as make comments here. Because diaries can be more wide-ranging than a comment, which usually address only a point or two. Struck me as a gracious invitation for Kossacks with a counter view to fully expound it.

      What's the anthrax terrorist doing for fun these days. September 18th marks five years of freedom.

      called for restraint in troll rating?

      a hope that may come close to despair
