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:

Nearly three months after two rapists were convicted in Steubenville, OH, the "real criminal" is finally going to face justice.

Deric Lostutter, AKA KYAnonymous
Deric Lostutter, better known by his online name  KYAnonymous, was instrumental in leaking information that forced reluctant authorities in Steubenville to pursue rape charges against the small town's exalted football heroes:
Lostutter says he was the one who published a trove of incriminating social media photographs, videos and messages that had been posted by Steubenville football players and that documented and ridiculed the victim.

"The tweets, screenshots, Instagrams. ... Pretty much everything you've seen in the media, that came through me," Lostutter said.

As previously mentioned in this diary, Lostutter is facing up to ten years in prison--five times as much as the men convicted of raping an unconscious Jane Doe.

Jane Doe and her rapists
Lostutter is under investigation for hacking the Steubenville football team's website.  After the hack the following video appeared on the website.  Lostutter has admitted the masked avenger in the video is him:


KYAnonymous also targeted Westboro Baptist Church after the inbred bigots announced plans to celebrate the massacre of elementary school children at Sandy Hook Elementary last December.

There are a number of efforts under way to help get justice for Deric Lostutter.  A White House petition has been created, but the White House recently raised the bar for petitions to be considered to a lofty 100,000 signatures.

Ultraviolet has created a petion as well.

Deric has enlisted the help of the Whistleblower Defense League, which has created this page for donations.  Costs are expected to be in the hundreds of thousands.


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).

Extended (Optional)
