    I was writing on DailyKOS before I started reading Huffington Post, where Xenubarb acquired a large following. Well, over 100 people.

    It was a great and clever and snarky site, thanks to the great and clever and snarky commentators, and a fun platform to share ideas and chastise stupidity.

    That is, before stupid moved in and settled down in the form of AOL. Suddenly, the influx of idiocy and dumb crap about pop culture teenies and kardashians surfaced like a greasy whale slick and the quality of the content overall declined.

    I logged off Huffpo for good after I received a 24 hour ban for questioning whether Greta van Sustern, Scientologist, was even qualified to discuss freedom of speech considering her cult links.

    I quit in a Huff, and posted before I left. Two weeks later I was invited "as a quality content provider" or something to participate in Huffington Post News or whatever they call the in-house little news toy that is beginning to be quoted as if it's a valid news operation instead of a pet project owned by AOL and its herds of stupid users, and Arriana Huffington, who voices a cartoon bear on The Cleveland Show.
