  •  this diary may be illustrative of a growing (0+ / 0-)

    problem at Kos in my opinion.  It seems the number of problematical diaries which tend to be shorter, less well sourced, and frequently contrary to the traditional tone and goals of this site, has increased.  Many times the diaries are the product of writers who have been on the site for a relatively shorter period of time and who have less history or participation here than others.

    I know of no easy solution but it seems the problem is growing

      if one were to actually read the FAQ section of the website, and look at the section under the header "Purpose of this Blog" one will find this:

      "This is a Democratic blog, a partisan blog. One that recognizes that Democrats run from left to right on the ideological spectrum, and yet we're all still in this fight together. We happily embrace centrists like NDN's Simon Rosenberg and Howard Dean, conservatives like Martin Frost and Brad Carson, and liberals like John Kerry and Barack Obama. Liberal? Yeah, we're around here and we're proud. But it's not a liberal blog. It's a Democratic blog with one goal in mind: electoral victory. And since we haven't gotten any of that from the current crew, we're one more thing: a reform blog. The battle for the party is not an ideological battle. It's one between establishment and anti-establishment factions. And as I've said a million times, the status quo is untenable."

      I believe it is fairly clear that my blogging falls under these sentences: "we're one more thing: a reform blog. The battle for the party is not an ideological battle. It's one between establishment and anti-establishment factions. And as I've said a million times, the status quo is untenable."

      •  I would respond that some of the activity here (0+ / 0-)

        falls outside the realm of what is Democratic and that some of what is presented is really faux Democratic,maybe couched in Democratic terms but presenting arguments from beyond the Pale
