    You have been here long enough to know the site rules. You can't HR in your own diary, it's a clear violation. In addition, HRs are to be used only to remove comments that are so offensive that they should be "hidden" from the public, so as not to embarrass the site. My comment doesn't come close and I would ask you to please remove your HR.

        Diary authors can't HR in their own diary. If you think about it, it's a good rule. Authors who attract HR's in their tip jars would be inclined to HR back.

        JCW is clearly out of line on two counts. He violated site rules because he is the diary author, and my comment was hardly HR worthy.

            but it has been in several kos diaries where he has discussed the valid use of HRs.

            •  Ok - I almost never HR and only get HR'd by RKBA (0+ / 0-)

              so I know little about it.

              My personal rule is to never HR someone I hate. And I almost never feel like HRing someone I don't hate.

            •  You said that we should be happy the GOP was (0+ / 0-)

              scorching the earth because we will win. That was a fucked up comment no matter how you look at it. I think it is safe to say very few people here feel that way.

                and likely the diary author did as well. I never said we should be happy for the shutdown, but rather happy that the GOP was committing a "blunder". My comment was on the political cost to the GOP, rather than the unfortunate outcomes that would result from a shutdown.
