    idea that I'd have actual conversations but to counter the craziness with facts, which as we all know are inconvenient suggestions to most of this crowd.

    It's easy to find a relevant quote or excerpt from a source other-than-the-liberal-media and provide the source. Just cut-and-paste and edit because of the 1,000 character limit...not always that easy.

    I did have a pretty productive conversation with a moderate crazy about the repeal of DADT and on the issue of the outspoken Arizona sheriff.

    I do think it matters, really.  People do read the comments even if they don't post.

    Again, terrific Diary, thanks.

      That's what I thought.  However, The Intelligencer's board blocks any web addresses.  It will just show the first part and then block the rest.  I suppose they say it's to block porn or viruses or whatever.  But seriously, an internet forum in the 21st century that doesn't allow links?  You have to type it in code like "Go to www dot and then a dailykos plus dot and com" or something like that to pass the filter.

      Talk about controlling the narrative!

        I get around that like this: WashPost-1/1/11- "...excerpt text..."

        You can do the code thing but unless you've got some obsessive types, they won't bother to go to the site.

        Yes, there is a lot of control going on with this newspaper chain, probably not unlike most of the others, but it is still a public forum and some of the Baggers go way over the line and aren't censored.

        Me, I just stick to the facts and hope that some sink in to anyone reading the comments.
