    Fellow dKos TU's: if it smells like a troll, and acts like a troll, then HR it like a troll deserves.

    They'll be swarming more and more, and we're too busy with far more important things for the next 4 weeks to play nice.

    We can bring the Nut Bread recipies back out in time for Thanksgiving.

      with the Forbes headline it is no reason to HR the poster.  We quote and link articles we disagree with all the time here.  You're way out of line with that hide.

      •  Yeah, but they should contextualize it, snark it, (0+ / 0-)

        ... add some value -- when they post articles that they don't agree with. Otherwise, there's a prima facie case that they do agree with it, and stand behind it, and are speaking it.

        For the next few weeks, our tolerance for crap goes down, not up, and rightly so. We need to put candidate-trolls on notice not to just post naked bullshit, emotional downer crap, stuff laden with enemy spin, and expect to get past our immune system.

        About the only unanimous thing around here is that we all want President Obama to call out bullshit on the spot, and we're thrilled that Vice President Biden did exactly that last night.

        We too need to step up our anti-bullshit vigilance.
