Recently, comments and diaries have been popping up by new users who are obviously of the Tea Party persuasion.

After they get mocked by the community and quickly banned, they then take to the Help Desk to decry our intolerance. One was kind enough to use his real name so I hopped over to his Twitter page to find it filled with Fox News love. His Facebook page had a huge post with screen grabs to demonstrate the intolerable intolerance of this community.

Today, a completely different new diarist is singing from the same hymn sheet at the Help Desk.

The similarity between the complaints and those of many other quickly banned users is perhaps coincidence but if DKos is now being used as a proof point of the right wing’s insistence that liberals are the intolerant ones, well, that makes me feel kind of special.

Hat tip to Elfling who has to deal with these people on a regular basis!

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.
