Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

War, genocide, murder, rape, pillage, tyranny, thievery; hey, always has happened, I can get over it. But Google releases a new phone and I can't get over it. Here's why:


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

I too, wanted the new Google phone. I stayed up late, I got up early, I pulled over in my car, trying to get through to Google. At one point, by accident, I had three Nexus 4s in my cart. I didn't care, I just kept pushing "Proceed". I didn't get through.

I wasn't alone. The internets are ablaze with pissed off people. Mostly saying "I wanted a Google phone, I didn't get one. I hate Google, I hate em, I hate em, I hate em". My favorite post called Google "losers". They just sold about a billion dollars worth of phones and they're "losers", you see.

So what really happened here. Did people stand in line for hours, outside in the cold? Were people crushed in stampedes? Did folks pay their hard earned money and not get what they wanted? No, Google sold about a million phones in a couple minutes over the Internet. They sold out.

Outrage. "I didn't get what I wanted and it's Google's fault. They didn't do it right. They're poopy heads. Why didn't they have enough for everybody?" What is this? A preschool birthday party and there wasn't enough cupcakes for all the kids?

Seriously, this bothers me more than Syria. It wasn't just the United States, every country seems to have more than their share of whiny brats. I despair.
