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:

Chris Paine's sequel to “Who Killed the Electric Car?” is in a bit of a pickle. It seems that its marketing department thought it would be clever to lock its trailer so that it wouldn’t run until the website gets 10,000 “likes.” Oddly, the site seemed to be stalled in the mid 6,000 range that is until the readers of Daily Kos responded. We know there are thousands of people who read the Daily Kos and who are also involved with Plug-In America, the Electric Automobile Association, “Who Killed the Electric Car?” fans and more, who, if they knew about this website, would gladly go to it and give it a thumbs up.

What I want you to do is to go to the Revenge of the Electric Car Facebook website

http://www.facebook.com/...

go to the “like” button to the right of the title and click it. You will need to have a Facebook account or you will need to join Facebook to do this.

If you are a member of Facebook, after liking the page, go to the left side of the page and click on "Suggest to Friends." This will allow you to tell your Facebook friends to do the same.

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).

Extended (Optional)
