Attention: I had written this diary on Saturday June 15th and had deleted it shortly after that, because I didn't like myself for having written it.

It was written out of exhaustion, frustration and being tired of a lot of snark and provocating discussions on dailykos. As Bob Johnson and Ek Hornbeck and many others made the effort to comment with good intentions, which I respect, it was rude from my side to have deleted the diary and to not have considered that people might want to find their comments back again.

I hereby republish it for those people.

Otherwise I hope it disappears in the big black hole in the universe. Go on, nothing to see here, just an apology for those who thought I shouldn't have deleted the diary for the context of comments they made. I came to the decision after reading the responses in my other diary, where I ask you about deleting non-diaries diaries.

I will not react or comment to this republication.

Text of original diary starts here:

This is no snark. So, don't ban me.

I am a Good German. That's no snark either. So, don't ban me. I am dead serious.

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.
