    who are aware of this problem. It's just that not many speak up any more in these diaries - which can then create the false impression that the community as a whole approves of these diaries. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

    Damn George Bush! Damn everyone that won't damn George Bush! Damn every one that won't put lights in his window and sit up all night damning George Bush!

      When they (we) do, they get crapped on by the community at large who don't want to hear an opposing viewpoint.  So many times recently a diary will be posted.  I read it, thinking, "What a load of crap."  I won't post that unless the diary is so over-the-top laden with bullshit though.  I'll come back a few hours later and see the crappy diary on the rec list.  Open it up and see the "Right on!" comments.  Please.  There's nothing there.  Then I'll post my grievances or find that someone else has posted why they think the diary is full of crap, sometimes even backed up with links.  Instead, the people who got suckered into the diary, dump on that sole poster.  I get emails, "Why did you uprate that post?  I expected more from you."   Bite me random poster.  

      I don't have to fake anything I feel, because we both know every word is real. - HBMS

        there no longer seem to be any FPers willing to wade in and confront people in these kind of threads. TrapperJohn, DHinMI, PluPage, and BTD used to do this as a measure of last resort (well BTD really did it on a regular basis :-)), but as far as I can tell it doesn't happen anymore. Maybe there's been an "inofficial official" change of policy - since any FP admin intervention of this kind invariably results in howls of censorship.

        Damn George Bush! Damn everyone that won't damn George Bush! Damn every one that won't put lights in his window and sit up all night damning George Bush!
