  •  I'm kind of surprised that this was (5+ / 0-)

    getting a hide rating.

    If people are going to hide rate for an "inflammatory tone," then half the people at dKos are in danger of losing their accounts. Little is being abrasive here, but he is not making hateful remarks, or peddling conspiracy theorys, or right-wing trolling, or making personal threats, or any of the behavior that warrants a hide-rate.

    Now, that being said, no one is happy to have the first comment at the top of the page be a withering, snide remark peppered with expletives. But many of us, apparently, could use a thicker skin.

    •  ARRRG. This is not the first (0+ / 0-)

      comment. My first two comments were totally soft. I said I think the comment was "a bit over the top." How much softer a critique could one make? And the second was simply to let him/her know that this hting s/he discovered "this morning" was actually almost 9 years old. I thought the diarist would actually appreciate that! The diarist and several commenters then jumped all the fuck over me!
