    We've moved quite a distance in time.  When DK first started, the politically active on forums were a minority and we were the political junkies thinking we would change the world by gathering on line.

    Well, now everybody does this!  Phones, computers, you name it.

    It all adds up man.  It really does and you did it perfectly.  I would send them a note of thanks for doing the right thing and tell them that it adds up and to spread it around because we need more good than not good.

    Well done, and don't think for a moment that it matters not.  It does.  Really.  People are reading and they read a lot more than we want to imagine they do.

    A while back I got a serious hard core asshole pro-lifer booted from a small forum I frequent.  We are fairly widely read and when that got done I got e-mails from people I didn't even know!  They read and they were mad and when the right thing got done they saw it and it was a good thing.

    What triggered me to do it?  One guy signed up, reader for years and just called the ass out, returning to their lurking status hoping for the best.  I did what it took, because that one action showed me that people are reading and thinking and with our busy lives the political sphere extends to these places and little things matter.  


    It all adds up.  Really it does.  Tell your friends.
