        ...the site accepts every ideological current in the Democratic Party, including the conservative one.

        The link is here, but the relevant portion is as follows:

        This is a Democratic blog, a partisan blog. One that recognizes that Democrats run from left to right on the ideological spectrum, and yet we're all still in this fight together. We happily embrace centrists like NDN's Simon Rosenberg and Howard Dean, conservatives like Martin Frost and Brad Carson, and liberals like John Kerry and Barack Obama.

          Embracing people with harmful ideologies is not the same as supporting them.

            ...that Kos or the site's editors believe conservative Dems are "harmful."  Indeed, the suggestion of the quoted material is quite the opposite.

            If Kos now feels that it's time for ideological purity in the Democratic Party, that's certainly his right/prerogative.  However, if that is indeed his perspective now, the FAQ ought to be updated to reflect that this is now an ideological rather than partisan blog.
