  •  Did you catch the W1nston Smith comment that (4+ / 0-)

    got uprates? Think that's easy to forget?

    •  And this is precisely the point (7+ / 0-)

      Yes, lots of us saw that comment, and thought it was terrible, said so, and defended your asses.  At the same time, all over the place, we have said you guys have ALSO done your fair share of crappy behavior.

      I have never really seen many of the RKBA folks acknowledge that, acknowledge that they are not solely the victim.  You all need to get your house in order to...and while the calls for your removal from daily Kos are over-the-top...a great deal of the animosity you all are facing is the product of some real and general dickey, over a lomg time, by a subset of your members.

      I will do what is right in defending you all whether or not you all do,what is right in cleaning your own defense of you, oddly, isn't about you.  But if you want my good all have to change and start policing your own more/better.

      •  That comment is not hidden... (4+ / 0-)

        because 32 upraters saw fit to endorse that sentiment. Policing has to go both ways.

          look at my comment history.  All we are looking for is some acknowledgement from the RKBA folks is that they ain't been saints, and are looking at changing their own behavior as well.

        participants pro or con in any group's diaries is NOT allowed on this website.

        I know this because group 'policing' in the Nuclear Free DKos group merely got group members NR'd and/or banned no matter how nasty the insulting interlopers got. Thus the truth is that group members have LESS power to moderate their groups's diaries and comments sections than non-group commenters have.

        Be careful what you advise on this because the DK4 Groups reality is seriously counterintuitive.

      If I can get over some of the garbage aimed at women here, RKBAers can work to move forward too.

      Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
