    With respect to this specific decision, he is enabling activists to take political power back in their own districts.

    Let's take a blog like Calitics.  For the CA democratic party to pull their head out and for us to get real reform in CA we need a strong blogosphere there.  That means supporting blogs like that and even more so supporting blogs that blog a specific district because they connect the netroots to the grassroots.  A good example here is blogs like Say No to Pombo which were instrumental in helping to elect a Dem in that district.

    There is no fault with blogs like MLW, Booman or any of the ones listed here but they don't do that kind of work.

    It goes back to the stated goal of this site, bringing about electoral victory for democrats.

    I've been here several years and that theme has always been clear to me, if it isn't clear to others how can you blame the site owner for that?

    And again I can't underscore enough that if people at these purged blogs would cross post then I'm sure their traffic would not suffer and in fact it would increase.  I used to read MLW and I still do like MSOC's writing but when the last 5 or so posts she's written have been nothing more than bitching about Markos or this site that's a turn off.  I started reading her early on because of her writing, not because of some blogroll.

    This whole argument about this somehow hurting other blogs is completely bogus and unfounded.
