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:

I wonder how many of the technical ‘glitches’ on the ‘ObamaCare Websites’ are being caused by hackers hired by the Koch Brothers and their ilk, and why I haven’t heard anyone discussing this obvious possibility...

The GOP is known for its dirty-tricks. The Tea-Party itself IS a GOP dirty-trick! So why aren’t we talking about the possibility that their deep-pocketed sponsors have hired hundreds or thousands of hackers around the world to disrupt ACA websites any way they can?  

Or even worse:  They have the money to bribe and coerce people to corrupt the internet itself in subtle ways, such as making it ‘drop’ or ‘edit’ every other packet coming from or going to an ACA website’s IP address.

Someone please tell me I’m wrong!


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 have been BANNED from the Daily KOS and can't even comment on my own thread because my pithy responses confused their robots... Stand-by, I'll be back!

The only reason I'm able to convey this, (at 12:07 AM PST), is that they haven't yet disabled my ability to write to my own Diary, but I guess it's only a matter of time...
