I wondered, what would the people who spent all this time hunting me, stalking me, combing my Twitter feed, making lists, making spreadsheets, programming bots, what would they do if I just stopped posting as much?
I got my answer. First, people started calling me out. I took the bait the first few times, but then I stopped. All I'm doing by responding is adding fuel to the fire. Feeding the trolls. So then a funny thing happened: you started making shit up! That guy, posting at the helpdesk, imitating DailyKos users: He's not me. He's posting gross, juvenile, sexist, terrible stuff. I've never posted anything like that, and if I have, please link it.
The thing is, everyone he's targeted with his childish insults are people I would describe as having a center-right point of view, or someone I've had disagreements with in the past. He even posted as “Squashed Hubbard” once. This guy is deliberately trying to frame me. The helpdesk troll is someone who knows DailyKos and has something against me. He's one of you! He's someone who goes on here, posts comments like a normal neoliberal Dailykos user, then sits at his keyboard and actually thinks up and then types crap like this.
You really have no shame. You're willing to go to any lengths to defeat me, even going against your own supposed morals. Seriously, one of you actually sat at your keyboard and made up offensive, ugly comments about Ian Reifowitz's haircut and toilet humor about people's genitals. Really. It wasn't a RW troll and it wasn't me. It was one of you! Think about that.
There are no rules at DailyKos anymore. You guys are willing to do anything. There is no low you won't stoop to. Insults are OK now. Outing identities of users is OK now, thank God you guys never found my real name. Trolling the helpdesk posting gross, offensive comments about people is OK now, as long as it becomes a Squash-the-Squash-fest. It's all officially condoned by the leadership of this site.
What's even sadder is that most of you are older than me! You raise kids and grandkids! Sit on schoolboards and city councils! You teach college classes, you're nurses and lawyers! You're running this fucking country. You're supposed to lead by example. And this is how you act. Like seventh graders. Holy fucking Christ.
Link to one thing I've said that's offensive. Link to offensive comments that make me a “troll” But you can't. Lying about people is OK in this Twilight zone of a website.
So I'm here to say “you win”. I'm done. I fucking give up. I will post no more comments on this site or on the Helpdesk. Anyone after right now who posts and says they are me is lying. I'm not even responding to this diary so feel free to post those insults DailyKos is becoming well known for. This place is so toxic I don't know why anyone would ever want to post here. Shit, why the fuck am I here??! People are leaving, despite Markos's University of Maximegalon studies saying that traffic has increased by 600 megafarks or something. You post diaries trying to get new people to post comments and only get people who have been here since 2005.
You win. You've beaten me with the most childish and below-the-belt of tactics. You've proven yourselves as the biggest bullies on the political blogosphere. You're right up there with 4chan. So congrats, I guess.
Politicians and real activists and people who actually have news or something to say only still post here for the audience, so it's time to do something about that. It's time for other blogs to step in and fill the void. DailyKos is not Too Big to Fail, and right now it is full of fail. This place is a mess, and it's sad that such a childish, meanspirited, psychotic echo chamber is the voice of Democrats on the Internet. But hey, you're proud of that.
Someone will probably say “call the waaaahmbulance”, because that's what you are. You're bullies. Jesus friggin' Christ, find something else to do.
DailyKos is nothing but a waste of time. You guys are gonna post comments screaming “Bojo! Bojo! Bojo!” Fucking look at yourselves! Learn some self-control!
I'm out. But keep making shit up and saying it's me if it makes you feel better. I won't respond. Holy fucking shit.
8:02 AM PT: For those who don't know what's going on or don't really care: yes. this is a zombie account. If you've never heard of me, no worries. It means you're actually paying attention to much more important things and ignoring this meta crap.
