A few days ago, I posted the "secret" Romney tapes and some of my fellow Kossers opened up a serious can of whup on me.  Here's what I wrote:

Some of you guys called me a troll, Andrew Breitebart and pleaded with me to take the tape down.  

Today, those tapes went mainstream in print and on TV.

Is there anyway those of you who dogged me so badly could um, at a least apologize for all of your conspiracy accusations?  And while we're at it, we might want to find that woman who original posted the tapes because she is looking like a hero.

If not, no big deal...forward.

EDIT: Thanks guys for all the warm regard.  My larger message is that we need to trust each other--especially those of us who write frequently.  We will not post anything that puts the integrity of this site in jeopardy.

I also need to say that this woman was dogged a thousand times worse than me.  Please show her some love:

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.
