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.

ATTENTION: READ THE RULES.

  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:

Yes, it's real.

Apparently they've gotten tired of having their racist rants and Nazi slurs removed from Facebook. So they've apparently done a giant shameless rip of FB's code base (or coded their own to look Just Like the Real One, I don't know these things) and created their own through-the-looking-glass social community.

Intro

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).

Sure looks like Facebook to me, except for the ripped-off and misused "Don't Tread on Me" sigil.

You probably can't see the screenshot completely. Here's a link to the entire screenshot, in all its Not-Facebook-How-Dare-You?!? glory.

This diary is just a heads-up and a conversation starter. When I get the time, and the stability of stomach, to venture in under an assumed name to check out the new face of teh stoopid, I'll update or comment. Meanwhile, you guys feel more than free to venture into the den of teabagger oafdom and report back, though I'm fairly sure we all know what we'll find.

Coupled with Fox News and Conservapedia, they are indeed well on their way to isolating themselves on Bullshit Mountain.
