  •  Why? There are a group of Kossacks (5+ / 0-)

    who have a bad habit of coming into diaries about gun violence and gun safety, in a tag team way, and diverting, distracting or derailing any kind of discussion about what might be done to reduce gun violence.

    Some "new" Daily Kos members appear to be "sock puppets" of former or current Daily Kos members.

    The poster who responded to your comment is one of several (including myself) who have begun to simply mock such interlopers out of our group diaries.

    •  i have asked help desk admins (4+ / 0-)

      for some clarification on this practice.  

      the RASA and Shut Down The NRA groups should not have to deal with the constant off-topic disruption as group diaries as per kos in Participating in someone else's diary:

      The "guest in someone's house" rule

      Walking into someone's diary is like walking into someone's home. You are a guest. Act accordingly. That doesn't mean you can't disagree. It just means you have to be civil and courteous and limit your arguments to substance.

      That level of courtesy must be even higher in group diaries. If people want to hang out and talk about X, and you are anti-X, then either be on your bestest of best behavior or just stay away.  You are always free to write your own response diary or start your own anti-X group.

      So, my tolerance for dickishness will be least in group diaries, followed by personal diaries, followed by your own diaries.
