    Not because you're wrong about the Hillary's Taxes threads, which are premature at best, potentially quite damaging to us at worst.  But in there, I'd argue that Kossacks are the sharks, sadly.

    It's that, having been involved in a wide range of online BBSs, hangouts, forums, blogs, etc. of both political and non-political nature, I know it's always been that way:  some minority percentage of truly worthwhile discussion, surrounded by a constant, juvenile pie fight.

    As a person wiser than me once said, "there are already a million monkeys with a million typewriters, and Usenet is nothing like Shakespeare."

    I'm at dKos not because I think it's an exception to that rule, but because the stuff here that does rise above the level of flinging feces is so very worthwhile, and because the stakes of what we discuss here are so high.
