    So, as you do their work for them by smearing John Edwards, think to yourself, am I helping the right wingers here?

    "Treat people civily" indeed.

      Thanks for researching all my comments and cherrypicking one to attack me.

      I made a nice comment in this diary and you chose to attack me persoanlly about one comment from God knows when.  

      If that is the worse you can find I said here in the last 8 or 9 months, well, I think it speaks quite well for me.

      I believe my overall body of comments and diaries speak for themselves.  People know me here.  Other than a few supporters of a certain candidate, I think most ocnsider me a kossak in good standing who behave civilly for the most part.  

      I am not perfect, but on the whole, I comport myself well within the ethics of the site.  This is in spite of being personally insulted often because I am a high profile supporter of one candidate. (high profile in the sense I write many diaries).  

      That comment likely was in response to something you (or someone else) said that repeated a right wing frame.  I suspect it was long ago (like at least a month), and I wonder why you hold on to a resentment (or did you just search for something you could throw out at me and it was not said to you).

      Why on earth would you hold on to a comment and pull it out here?  Why am I so important to you?  

      I do not know you and do not have an opinion about you at all.  

      I should follow my own advice and ignore you here, but sometimes I feel I have to respond to unfair attacks on my person, as you just did.  Therefore, I am replying.

      Have a nice day.

        I think everyone here is in good faith - everyone being TomP and smintheus - and with more in common than not. smintheus wrote a thoughtful piece on the Edwards campaign. In it he criticized actions that were being taken that disturbed him.

        smintheus has a long and strong record of good research and of bringing important issues to the blogosphere.

        I saw the interchange between the two of you on his post and saw that for some reason both of you got annoyed with each other. I think it was a bit of an over-reaction on both sides, but I could be wrong.

        It is easy in the blogosphere to overreact.

        So, again, I think you have more in common than not, and I hope you can at least give each other the benefit of the doubt and meet on better terms in the future.

    •  Oh, you troll rated me for that (2+ / 0-)

      comment, improperly I might add.  I forgot all about it.

      Seems like the FAQs say not to chase people around in other diaries about troll ratings.  That was long ago and it appears that your improper troll rating was offset by a lot of kossaks.

      I think what you are doing here is as improper as the troll rating from long ago that you gave me.

      You seem to harbor a personal animus against me. I don't cae about you one way or another.  If you thought your comment hurt me or made me angry, you are mistaken.

      Have a nice day.

      •  your comment is directly relevant to this diary (0+ / 0-)

        In what is probably our only interaction on this site, you accused me of "smearing" Edwards because I expressed a critical POV toward his activities.

        I believe my overall body of comments and diaries speak for themselves.

        Exactly my point, in fact.

          I do not know you.  It is unfortunate you are overly interested in me.  It creeps me out.
