I get emails:

Dear Mr. Moulitsas,
Hello! Thinking of writing a thing about knee-jerk lefty cries of "racism!" for The Progressive and nothing so aptly fits that description as Mr. Rall's recent experience with Daily Kos.
So what do you say about this?
Or if you want to pass me along to the admin who banned Rall, that would be somewhat disappointing, but acceptable. Talking to that person and you would be ideal, really.
Regardless, thank you for you time.
I won't justify my support for a new community driven rule of "don't draw African Americans like monkeys", with a healthy dose of "don't be that
white guy telling African Americans what is and isn't racist" -- because really, the reasons are pretty self-evident.
I am curious, however, why would anyone assume Rall was banned? What a knee-jerk reaction!
