  •  Not that I read your entire diary or anything..... (2.10)
    But, did you ever think that when a diary is interesting enough to out a one-liner.. that by making any comment -- however short -- one actually has a BOOKMARK for that diary.... so they can go back and see what else has been added?  That's aside from the community support angle of such comments.  

    I can't believe you put a tip jar for this diary!

    Where are the dems heading? Not left, not right -- but FORWARD! Chaaaaaarrrrrggggge!

    •  No, I didn't (3.00)
      When I want to make a bookmark of a diary, I make a bookmark of a diary (or copy down the url into a text file).  When I want to make a comment, I make a comment.  Seem like two different devices for me.

      And as for tip jars, I'm not a fan to be honest, but they're seen as pretty standard so I figure I'll conform with that one.  Your skepticism seems unwarranted, and your attitude is just dismissive - you yourself say that didn't even read me whole diary.

    •  Sort of like a dog pissing on something (4.00)
      to make it his?  Then the rest of us have to wade through all that piss to get to content.  

      Maybe we should work on a better way to mark interesting diaries.  Organization here is pretty bad.  And the diaries fly past so fast that we get 8 diaries saying "Man! did you hear what Jeff Gannon did on Wolf Blitzer last night?"
      And interesting and thoughtful diaries that took a lot of work and beg for discussion never get noticed.  It's detracting from the quality of the site and reducing its usefulness.

    •  dude, wake up (4.00)
      You won my respect on an earlier thread.  But hell, even i've given you some zeroes on this thread.

      I'm not convinced you are a troll.  But if you aren't one, stop fucking acting like one!  You get gone FAST around here if you attack other people like you're doing.

      I give you one shot here, then I go back and zero all your comments like everybody else has.

      You have no idea what really matters in my life.
