    I tend to think of myself as a law-abiding member of this community.  I put thought into my comments, and try to be as civil as possible. I'll also add that I have HR'd maybe two comments ever, and it was clearly deserved. In those cases, my actions were in line with the FAQ: the comments were "disruptive to the community". That meant trolls, not people I disagree with. Then, I had to go to confession because I felt dirty having done so. I mean, who am I to say, I think to myself, what "disruptive to the community" means?  And, I'll admit it: I shy away from controversial diaries. If I'm going to get covered in sh*t, I'm at least going to get that way cleaning out my privy, not engaging in juvenile behavior in some p*sssing contest thread. Just saying.

    I love the 'Kos, but I have pet peeves, too, and HR abuse is my number one. Reading this rule, however, I suspect that that we may be inviting more, not less HR abuse. I see a technicolor picture of a great deal of legalistic argument over what "stalking" is because the rule as written in this diary is too vague. Transsubstantiation makes more sense to me than this rule as written, and I say that with the utmost respect to MB and the community.

    I know a lot of work went into this, and I want to go on record as saying how much I appreciate any effort to improve the culture of this community. I know this proposed rule has the best interest of the community at heart, and am grateful that I have the opportunity to have a vote on this. However, I'm sorry, but I can't vote for it.

    Mainers, unite for marriage equality--NO on 1!
