      Make the arguement that no one should read the thread and I will remove.

      •  I think the original comment is nothing (10+ / 0-)

        but an attack.

        I had originally HR'ed his second comment, but I removed that since he's giving reasoning.  But at root, no I don't think a shot about "self-pimping" adds anything to the discussion - particularly as regards the topic of the diary.

        If the commenter wishes to write a meta-diary about self-pimping rather than hijacking this diary, I wouldn't object to that in the least, so long as it is a true meta-diary and not an attack on some individual.

          people are rewarded for sarcasm enough that it often becomes the default method of communication here.  

          I just think the diarist and others have written things of value which add to the discussion.  I believe that if a comment results in quality discussion and interesting thinking, then the comment has ended up adding value and should not be hidden.

            The commenter's post here makes that quite clear.

          •  You have shown yourself to be an utter idiot (0+ / 0-)

            You need to inform yourself about this diarist and the complete situation.

            You really stepped in it this time with your stupid game playing.  I see your equally stupid buddy George playing along with you here.

            You two couldn't have chosen a more unwise candidate for your assinine gameplaying.

            Jeralyn doesn't deserve any of the BS coming her way by the ignorant ass you have chosen to defend.

              Little late to the game, aren't you?  I read and rec'ed the diary.  I was never a part of attacking the diarist.  I was only thinking that the thread did not need to be hidden as there was much goodness there, but what the heck.  

              But you go ahead and make your very personal attacks.  I did not do this and have not done this.  

              I see no reason to hide this discussion.  It is interesting, and does the diarist no harm.

              I just think the diarist and others have written things of value which add to the discussion.  I believe that if a comment results in quality discussion and interesting thinking, then the comment has ended up adding value and should not be hidden.

              I felt the diarist and others responded very well and added much good information to the subject.  

              I don't know what you are thinking here, but it is not on target.  Sorry if you misunderstood.  You would only think I would be intentionally ugly towards this diarist and the very serious subject matter if you have no handle on who I am at all.

              I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don't let anybody tell you different.

              something she said 28 hours before, now you're going after her for something she said 46 hours before.

              ROTFLMAO. You are a hoot!  I'd almost be willing to pay to play on this site just to witness your bizarre antics.  I love slapstick.

        •  I also disagree with hiding (1+ / 0-)

          simply to punish, by the way.  This is a personal opinion which I do not expect everyone to hold.  

          Unless the comment is so bad that no one should see it, I believe the generic FAQ goes something like that.

        There can often be interesting discussions in hidden threads. That doesn't mean the parent comment shouldn't be hidden.

    •  Uprated to offset your HR... (0+ / 0-)

      The commenter is wrong, imho, about the diarist and his remark is stupid but if stupidity were the criterion for Hring comments, there would be a lot more white space on these webpages.
