  •  That's my quote up there (1+ / 0-)

    Hi Giles, Politiscoop used something I wrote in a private chat room, in the heat of the moment, not realizing it was going to the media. The peeps in the chat room did ask if they could share it with someone else "to brainstorm ideas to help Kloppenburg"...I should have investigated this person, but I trust too easily. Lesson learned.
    Anyway, I felt it was safe to come out now since bin Laden was killed, and since you have validated everything I've seen. Plus, the Brad blog just used my quote again today, ugh. There are more details on my blog, if you're interested in reading it?

    •  I just read your blog post. (0+ / 0-)

      Wow.

      I also went back to review what I wrote about the situation at the time. I think I reacted cautiously when the news broke, so I hope my contribution to your stress was minimal. I had never heard of politiscoop.

      And you're right, everything you talked about has been validated because of similar problems with other bags. There were some issues again just this morning with bags not being completely sealed.

      I've seen some of my own work copied and pasted in various other blogs since I started writing about the Wisconsin mess. Some credited to my user name, some described as "from Daily Kos", some uncredited. It's a strange feeling, especially when readers don't understand how Daily Kos works and think it's one dude writing millions of words a day.

      Is there anything I can do? I'm not sure writing about our exchange in a diary would be helpful, but I'd be glad to do that, or just link your blog, or simply shut up about the whole thing and let it rest. Your choice :)

      •  Thank you (0+ / 0-)

        Giles, thank you so much for your thoughtful and kind reply. Originally I just wanted to shut up and let it rest. I asked the people who re-posted my "report" to stop using it, and not to use my name. I closed my facebook account so everything I wrote would no longer be available to those people anymore. I kept my mouth shut for days...

        But you know what? They're still using my "report" (Brad blog just re-posted it today) and now I'm pissed.
        Yes, I made the mistake of trusting people I didn't know. And yes, I need to be careful with what I put in writing on the internet. I have learned from those mistakes.

        Now I just want to set the record straight. The truth really matters to me.

        I don't want you to have to waste much time on this-If you would just put a link  to my blog, please, I would really appreciate that.

        Thanks. :)

        •  Will do. (0+ / 0-)

          I'll put it in my Day 8 recount diary late tonight. Feel free to message me through the DKos messaging system if you change your mind.
