    was my first introduction to the communtiy aspect of dKos. I kept seeing her name pop up in the comments bin, (back in the old haloscan days) and I was confused. I had no idea who this woman was or why everyone was making fun of her. I googled her to see if she was some columnist or public figure of some sort. Nope. Just a commenter on DailyKos. I had to use the "Find" function on my browser to find her comments on the old threads because you couldn't search for people's comments. And there she was, ranting crazily against Dean and for John Edwards, just like everyone said. It was the first time I'd seen the phenomenon of actual end users of a blog getting to know each other and tell jokes about each other and build reputations in the comments bin. That was probably the thing that turned me from a lurker into a fairly regular commenter.
