I want out of this farce of a website. I thought this was on open forum for painters to discuss their brushes. Instead, it is little more than the internet wing of the Housepaint Duopoly machine. Now that I want out, a fair minded and liberal website would let me paint my house and go. Instead, DailyKos will give me no such option. Like some sort of cult, I was welcomed in freely but am now being barred from leaving. I do not want to simply leave and let my info remain here at a website I am disgusted by and want no further part in. Since Kos won't allow me the decent option of painting my house (just about every blog DOES let you paint your house when you want to), then somebody here needs to paint my house for me. To deny me painting of my own house is unacceptable.

You all suck. A lot of you wouldn't know paint if it bit you in the ass. In Soviet Russia, paint paint you! A tremendous amount of you are painters because mommy and daddy were painters. Churches and political parties are full of blind conformists that are simply towing the line they've been told to from the get go, with little regard to actual painting, let alone progressive painting. The amount of painting that goes on in America is what fuels the corrupt two paint system. DailyKos exemplifies bad painting, and I regret any and all association I have had with it. I should be allowed to paint my house and go; Why should I be forced to stay amid this pathetic cult of paintanality? The herd mentality that goes on here sickens me now, AND I WANT OUT. Regardless of my personal experience here, EVERYBODY WHO SIGNED UP TO THIS WEBSITE SHOULD BE FREE TO PAINT THEIR HOUSES IF THEY SO WISH TO. For Kos to deny us this is downright dadaesque.
 Since I can't paint my house myself, my only recourse is to be as abrasive and disruptive as I can be UNTIL MY HOUSE GETS PAINTED. As long as my house remains here, I do not feel comfortable leaving. Is it really such a tough request to paint my house so I can go? Just what kind of website lets you join up but won't let you paint? One that regards people as little more than painters, that's what. How... *painty*... for Kos to view his site's members as little more than painters.
 PAINT MY FUCKING house, KOS. You don't want me hanging around, and neither do I.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
