Last night, I had a strong reaction to this diary which I felt was largely wrong and full of inaccuracies. It was totally not in accordance with other opinion diaries and trusted sources.

This was the diary. I did not like his "stop deluding yourselves" either.

Nevertheless, my original response diary was not that well-written and thought out. I should have known better than to just write a diary "lashing out". I realize I should have really thought it out to write a diary that expressed my opinions and had well-written critical rebuttals and links that connected all the dots.

I apologize for the discord I caused some kossacks (and the diarist with whom I strongly disagreed with). I apologize for hide-rating the diary as well. I went too far. I will remove it immediately if my ratings were restored, which I asked the admin to do. I apologized and owned up to my mistake in my email to admin too. Lastly, I took responsibility to remove my original poorly written diary too.

I will write a much better rebuttal diary in the days to come. I hope you forgive me for my mistake.

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.

    you just deleted instead of deleting it.

    It's wrong, not fair, not right.

    There were several comments in that diary and people were still commenting and replying to others when you jerked the chain and deleted your diary, stopping all discussion.

    Granted, it's DK4 specific that you can no longer comment in a deleted diary.

    There was an error previewing your comment: The error was: Sorry, you are not authorized to view this page. Hostname: web3.dailykos.com Time: 2012-12-07T20:04:17
    But you either stand by what you wrote or you don't.  Deleting a diary and writing another one IMO is just plain wrong.

    You trashed a member here at DKos and told everyone who was reading your diary:

    Now is the time to stop uprating and recommending diarists who make crap up like this one
    and
    So that diarist and his ilk are full of crap. Stop uprating them and giving them credibility.
    I understand you apologized, but I suggest that next time, you include that apology in the original diary instead of deleting said diary.

  •  Please PM when you do this do I don't miss it. (0+ / 0-)

    I look forward to it.

    I will write a much better rebuttal diary in the days to come.
    And I hope you sent a PM containing an apology to the member here that you trashed.

    They do seem all het up about getting a deal together so I imagine they'll do something. We have our predictions, don't we? I think you know what mine is.

    If I were in the room with the President I'd have little effect on his plans so, sitting here 3000 miles away, typing on my laptop, I'd guess whatever it is I have to say is virtually useless.

    to apologize.

    That guy will continue to write the same recycled crap over and over again along with a few others here.

    They're not so interested in providing valid criticism or factual information as they are in displaying their veiled disdain for Obama. Same crowd every time.

    And they are usually wrong 99.99% of the time, as few of their predictions ever come to fruition.

  •  Thank God I missed the diary you got in trouble (0+ / 0-)

    for. Good for acknowledging you went too far even if your objections were valid. Keep your cool, I read informative diaries, if you post one I will read you.

    They will keep posting it. Their diaries are borderline CT and 100% speculation based on random quotes taken out of context to support their "Obama is a Sellout" narrative. They never liked the guy and never will.

    Here's a list of failed predictions/observations by them:

    1. Double-Dip Recession is Well On Its Way

    2. Geithner will likely be indicted

    3. DADT Repeal is DEAD

    4. Obama Threw Warren Under the Bus and they Hate Each Other.

    5. Obamacare will be Struck Down by SCOTUS.

    6. Iran Invasion Imminent.

    You had it right the first time. Sorry you succumbed to their pressure.

    I miss Speaker Pelosi :^(
