So, there I was.
Casually cruising Kosland, looking for something that set off my overtired Muse so that I could grace y'all with my feathered presence, when a horrible, unfathomable thing happened.
You know those two little circles beneath comments?
Suddenly, they were gone, and there was  asquare.
I am anything but a square.

It occurs to me that the opposite of "trusted" is "untrusted."
What have I done to betray trust around here?
I can't imagine anything.
Am I a divisive person? Am I an obamabot? A firebagger?
A firebot?
An obamabagger?
I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and darn it, people like me.
And I'm always so nice to everybody.
I make myself sick sometimes.
So why?
why has this been done to me?
What do I have to do? Go whoring for mojo?

I refuse to do that. I have STANDARDS.

My dKos my dKos why hast thou forsaken me?

This is a mistake. A huge mistake. You'll see.

All this positive energy invested into this community, and this is how I am repaid?

Without, for example, my evenhanded assistance with the vital task of community moderation, the site will be overrun by trolls by the end of the weekend.


That's it. I am wounded. Deeply, grievously wounded.

I refuse to post again today until my hard-earned trust is restored to me.

I go now to burn incense and seek purification.

Don't you trust me?

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.
