I've been torn since friday about what I was going to do regarding my participation on this site.  I can think of several excellent reasons why I should leave the site forever, and I can think of several excellent reasons why I should stay, and instead of commenting often on various topics and diarying rarely on meta and personal topics as is my current modus operandi, diary far more often, and in positive support of this presidential administration.

I said I was leaving.  then I said I was staying.  I was torn, both times, and like I said... I still am.

so it should go without saying that I stand in solidarity with the SistahSpeak boycott for the reasons stated in the SistahSpeak diary and by others diarying on this topic.  Robinswing spoke eloquently for me.  

I'll holla.

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.
