  •  Um, litho is misguided, but this isn't HR'able. (0+ / 0-)

    We need to see some learning to disagree without HR from everyone here.   mmmkay?

    •  It is easy to interpret this as advocating the (0+ / 0-)

      banning of the members of RKBA. Banning the group will not change the minds of the members. We will still have the same opinions. Banning the group would basically just prevent us from using the tag and the group structure for diaries. The only way to remove our opinions would be to ban us all individually, and that appears to be what is proposed.
            This is the public list of members of RKBA:
      kestrel9000, Otteray Scribe, KVoimakas, theatre goon, maxomai, Cedwyn, gerrilea, rockhound, cevad, exlrrp, meagert, blue jersey mom, buddabelly, duckhunter, happy camper, OMwordTHRUdaFOG, ER Doc, Grannus, Leftie Gunner, oldpunk, Captain Janeway, sierrak9s, Robobagpiper, wishbone, Crookshanks, Kaili Joy Gray, JustJennifer, Denise Oliver Velez, cyclemadness, not4morewars, ban nock, JayFromPA, PavePusher, Merry Light, Tom Seaview, wackydoug, Mandell, ocular sinister, RonV, greenbird, krwada, ParaHammer, Shockwave, boadicea, high uintas, joesig, lazypenguiness, Seldom Seen, Jaime Frontero, Robert in WV, Lisa Lockwood, Kimball Cross, bajadudes, HeartlandLiberal, Drmsparks, hkorens, Therapy, SpamNunn, James Kresnik, cowpowr, suesue, Our Man in Twisp, cactusflinthead, Wordsinthewind, lostboyjim, meatwad420, ALifeLessFrightening, RFELDMAN, deedogg, 13Friday, TheHalfrican, annieli, BrowniesAreGood, jhtrotter, GypsyT, Texas Lefty, Adama D Brown, robctwo, Tommy T, EskimoGuy, old mark, siduri, CgntvDssdnt, annecros, Thousandwatts, johnel, DavidMS, 1911s, edgardner, hagagaga, Mildly Unsuccessful Lurker, cryonaut, Stance Like Ptah, WestTexasLiberal, Canis Aureus, GoGoGoEverton, storchling, ErikO, JayRaye
            Please note that this includes a number of respected DKos members active in many areas besides RKBA, including two front-pagers. IIRC, Meteor Blades used to be a member, before he was the primary moderator. He has apparently not rejoined since giving up that role.

      •  So what about Litho's comment violated the site (0+ / 0-)

        rules?

        I stick by what I say - disagree without throwing HRs.

        •  Advocating for the banning of a respected group (0+ / 0-)

          of community members because they refuse to change deeply held beliefs to your satisfaction? Whatever...

          •  Yeah, it's definitely disagreeable. (0+ / 0-)

            But if I HR'd everything disagreeable here, I'd be out of donuts by lunchtime.
