    i'm sorry about the format. i didn't realize it would cause so much trouble for some readers.
    BUT CAN'T YOU GET TO THE CONTENT ANYWAY? i only wrote this diary because i haven't seen the point made here before that our supposedly best political allies are selling us out and that very few "progressives" are willing to buck the president, the senate leadership or the money interests. also that the label, SOCIALLY LIBERAL, FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE is an indicator of the problem and should become a mirror held up to people who still claim they want our support.

      look unhinged and unreasonable. You might want to use bold or emphasis (italics) to draw more attention to one particular sentence, but formatting needs to be used in order to get people to read what you wrote and respond on that, rather than just telling you to turn your all caps key off.

        as almost no one else seems to have read the piece (or wanted to respond) the formatting might be the - or at least a - reason. unhinged? shouting? that would put me off too.

          vcmvo2 was offering you what is IMO good avice ... and you took it! In my experience, most dirists reject that sort of feedback.

          You are in an intense competition for eyeballs. Not just from 40 other DKos diaries but from the whole internet. If a diary is in all caps, or does not have paragraph structure, or is just a hodgepodge of blockquotes and links w/o an informative overall point ... I just exit the diary. Why waste my time reading the unreadable? There's so much else to do.

          But take heart. You can still edit this diary and change the caps to judicious use of bold and italics.

          Again, recs for the open mind. Cheers.

      ALL CAPS WORKS FOR ME.  THEY SURE AREN'T PAYING ANY ATTENTION TO LOWER CASE.
