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.
