Umm, yeah. Fall Back. Umm... follow me below the dingledoodle squigglie dKosagnocchi dividerthingie fold after a word from our sponsor...


Here at Top Comments we strive to nourish community by rounding up some of the site's best, funniest, most mojo'd & most informative commentary, and we depend on your help!! If you see a comment by another Kossack that deserves wider recognition, please send it either to topcomments at gmail or to the Top Comments group mailbox by 9:30pm Eastern. Please please please include a few words about why you sent it in as well as your user name (even if you think we know it already :-)), so we can credit you with the find!  

Sorry to mess with your clock a bit more, but here we are with the good stuff you come for!

Brillig's ObDisclaimer: The decision to publish each nomination lies with the evening's Diarist and/or Comment Formatter. My evenings at the helm, I try reeeeallllyy hard to publish everything without regard to content. I really do, even when I disagree personally with any given nomination. "TopCommentness" lies in the eyes of the nominator and of you, the reader - I leave the decision to you. I do not publish self-nominations (ie your own comments) and if I ruled the world, we'd all build community, supporting and uplifting instead of tearing our fellow Kossacks down.

From Youffraita: In blue jersey mom's What's For Dinner? kitchen disaster diary  there are too many great comments. I have flagged a few like this one by tobendaro but really, go through the entire comments thread. It's comedy gold, and well worth your time.
From Pluto:
This one is a classic. "Why was I banned?" from the spammer responsible for the current Diary spam trend about rock-crushing and other industrial machines. YMMV. Plus, it IS the Help Desk -- which is a little weird.

Brillig's note: I've never published a Top Comment from the Help Desk. But hey... better now than never, eh?

From Tamar:
Dale makes excellent points about the fat insults some Kossacks toss out at Chris Christie. In particular, points out that it could really backfire on Democrats to use weight issues against Christie since so much of the U.S. population struggles with the same issues.

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.
