I'd like to do the community a favor.
6:47 PM PT: My point has been made. Y'all nitpick and complain over every little thing. This is suddenly a troll diary and the worst thing I've ever written, because I poked fun at one user getting banned for an unfortunate comment, which is Very Serious Business that requires a 12 hour slugfestscussion.
If you guys were serious about sticking to serious diaries and serious topics, you wouldn't be making fools out of yourselves in the comments below and elsewhere. Good job, guys. Thank you for helping to prove my point.
Or, to put it another way...
Many of the people who were itching for Very Serious Topics and Very Serious Diaries are making Very Big Fools out of themselves by being all in a huff over this. That's why I posted this diary. I'm not stupid -- I knew damn well what was going to happen. No matter how much people scramble to act like they're above stupid meta arguments about stupid topics that don't make the Democratic Party bigger and more leftier, they're not.
And that's the point.
edscan, if you're out there and didn't chew through a high voltage wire the last time there was a thunderstorm, I would be more than happy to post your thoughts in an update to this diary.
Go to my Facebook page and click the little "message" button, and type away. We'd love to hear from you.
That goes for you, too, MSoC. And Miep. And The Nephew. And...
