I joining the BK boycott.  I posted this as a comment, but am publishing it as a diary.  What I wrote is below.

I've been critical of this administration, but I'm not a critic.  I want the best for this President, this country, and its people.  People treat meta like it's a distraction, but it's where the rubber meets the road.  How we treat each other here, how comfortable we feel in speaking our minds, speaking to our experience, and whether we deal with each other in good faith, says all that needs to be said about our politics, action notwithstanding.  The idea that the meta war problem has been solved (now onto the substantive diaries!), never mind the bleach fumes, is troubling to say the least.  The impact that it had on the AA members should have been an obvious sign that the 11th hour moderation should have been handled more conscientiously, no matter how much the host would rather be doing something else.  After all, it was all a symptom of lax moderation and the wars had clearly already been taxing on the AA members before the purge.  

So I'll see you in a week and hope against hope to see some great posters, now banned, reinstated.

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.
