    ...on a private blog.

    Having said that, and even recognizing Kos' right to ban whoever he wants to ban from his blog, I agree - Kos IS an ass for banning good contributing bloggers for talking about an issue important to most of us here, but an issue he has a personal problem with. That's not the way you encourage a free exchange of ideas or build a bigger tent.

    In case this is my last comment here, it's been nice knowing you all and take care.

      I don't like seeing good diaries crowded off the list because people want to post conspiracy theories or other nonsense. I've gritted my teeth through some of the diary wars, and clicked this one because the title annoyed me.

      Kos has decided certain types of diaries are not welcome, and clearly stated the rules. I agree with him, although I have no idea if our reasons are the same. I find them annoying, counterproductive, and almost irresistible bait to debunk - which is an incredible waste of time and energy.

      Whether I agreed or not, if I found the rules too disturbing, I'd be elsewhere. Diarists who know and flout the rules are fair game for banning.
