    Then there is no point in citing them.  And people who do so, can be described as 'shrill' or some other epithet.

      ...attached to this diary -- they're absolutely sickening.  An honest debate and disagreement is acceptable to me.  Mealy-mouthed, dismissive, expletive-laden attacks are facile and, I might add, immature. blueskiesfalling has been respectful in all replies to comments -- the same can not be said of some who have posted comments to the diary.  I respect your right to disagree, but in a respectful way.

        this is a troll diary.  There is no point in attempting to have a 'respectful dialogue' with a troll who posts a diary attacking a Democrat 2 weeks before the election.

        I respect your right to be totally wrong about this and either not understand the rules or believe they don't matter - but, you are not the troll who posted this diary.

      You're not shrill for citing rules.

      You're shrill for accusing me of "campaigning for a Republican on dKos" when I explain in my post that a vote for the Republican would be really, really bad.

        why this diary violates the site rules, just as you can pretend that you don't understand that campaigning against a Democrat is the same as campaigning for her Republican opponent.

        But I don't have to pretend to respect such dishonesty.

          Since you cannot amicably disagree with me here to the point that you accuse me of supporting Republicans: check out the diaries I posted on the last two days about two very important ballot proposals coming up in Michigan.

          The sencond, which lift a ban on stem cell research that is one of the most restrictive state laws in effect, is very close to failing.  They need press and they need funds.

          I spent several hours drafting both of those posts (as well as this post, today), but unlike this post, they only garnered a few comments.

          It upsets and discourages me that over 100 people will post attacks and insults over a protest vote that isn't in any danger of unseating anyone but that other diaries, including my post about Michigan's stem cell initiative, died without a glance.  I saw waht was happening to the other diaries on the home pages while you were all tearing me down.  What: if my post is such drivel, why are you spending so much energy responding to it?

          That's what happens when anger wins, and by the way: THAT is how the Republicans play.

          Thank you.
