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.

I'd like to do the community a favor.

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...

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.
