  •  Why so defensive? (14+ / 0-)

    Wow, talk about defensive! I see four comments from you making excuses, and not one apologizing to Scott and praising him for single-handedly playing such a huge, courageous and productive role, in the $1 billion US Presidential election. You make excuse after excuse:

    Yes, there were a few dozen Kossacks who attacked Scott/annonemous670's posts here, or exulted when he was 'Bojoed'. That's not very many people. There are hundreds of thousands of Kossacks, especially active in the lead-up to a presidential election. Most Kossacks, among the thousands who saw those video diaries, did not pile on him.

    Kos has already spoken on this, how annoyed he was that DailyKos blew it, but acknowledging the tradeoffs involved:  I provided excerpts and some more thoughts in my comments below, here:

    For those who got it wrong: Be a man, be a woman, be an adult. No-one is asking you to 'wear a dunce cap'. Just apologize to Scott, and thank him. Stop making excuses.

    Can you afford even $10 (or more) as thanks or for his legal-defense fund? Add a note of thanks from DailyKos, if you can.

    (I did donate, putting my $ where my mouth is.)

    •  That is so fucking disingenuous of you (0+ / 0-)

      Why am I so defensive?  Because I got a hostile private mail from you accusing me of leading the HR parade, that's why.  I led NOTHING.  Now you sit here and intone Shame, Shame on those who care about this site not being ratcfucked.

      And for the record, Kos came off that tirade and acknowledged that those putting the brakes on the original posts were RIGHT TO DO SO.

      But do feel free to continue your Superior Dance.

      I also donated to Prouty's legal fund, because he did indeed do our nation a service.  But you know what?  I would not do ANYTHING DIFFERENT than I did beforehand if we get another set up blurry vidclips and an unresponsive poster who looks like a troublemaker.

      •  You write odious words. Let's publish our PMs (0+ / 0-)

        as I already asked you -- and you refused (so I honored your request, and didn't even mention it). I ask you again. We'll let readers decide if what I wrote you was a "hostile" email, as you claim, and let them describe your response to me.

        (A small tip for when you write others: you'll find it more effective to avoid using swear words and shouting-caps, they're not nice.)

        My other comments here stand; I'm done with this topic and diary.

        Best wishes.

        •  I told you why I wasn't willing to do that (0+ / 0-)

          Because you sent me a PM with no context accusing me of doing something I did not do.

          Shame on you for pointing the finger and then getting annoyed by the results.
