  •  Rubyr, I won't leave, but after next (8+ / 0-)

    wednesday, when i'm doing a promised diary for KosAbility, I will stop doing any diaries for a while. I will still comment. But why should I make original contributions to a site which owns what I write but yet has so little regard for me & it's other contributors' that they refuse to make it a safe place to participate. Something is not right here and it's deeper than we can see.

      but Kos wrote that diary about things changing and they did. Two people, who were obnoxious, got banned last week and I think there will be more to come. Also, there is a new rule that prevents uprates from saving someone who is frequently HR'd across multiple diaries. I think that this will clear out some of the ugliness.

      I think that a lot of the bile gets accepted by the administrators on the grounds of free speech. There needs to be a ban on hate speech.

      I hope you stick around.

      Take care of yourself; as you help your friend's daughter.   Don't fret about dKos-----it's getting less relevant day by day....
