  •  Here comes the uprating abuse (2+ / 0-)

    of course this comment and thread should remain in hidden territory.  

    Now let's see which of the usual people are being emailed privately to uprate this out of troll alley.

    Hmmm.

    I have a list of ten names.  Wait. Musing85 is one and he's arrived.  expect 1-2 others to "uprate" this in VIOLATION of the FAQs.

    My belief, anyone uprating this at this point should be banned. (not the original 2 people)

    I shall not rest until right wing conservatives are 4th party gadflies limited to offering minor corrections on legislation once or twice a year.

    •  Should have their rating privileges docked (0+ / 0-)

      It is done all the time around here for those exceeding the bounds and creating a fracas or unecessary strife.

      They know perfectly well they are doing it.

      It was done with zealots during the primary wars to cool off people, this is a sly more subtle but even more damaging version.

      I agree stevj,PvtJarhead were in the early mix. some other uprates were removed by the original upraters. Others uprating now are adding gasoline to the fire here.

      To strive,to seek,to find, and not to yield. 1843 high school motto, Rhode Island.

      •  agree, this has happened about 25 times (0+ / 0-)

        I don't think stevj or pvtgjarhead should be punished.

        Clearly musing85 and trashablanca were waiting toward the end to uprate.

        Flaw has had 25 comments end up in troll alley and ALL 25 times the same group of upraters (include bottles and then braveheartdc) come along and abuse the ratings privileges.

        Flaw outed a person's real name and now he attacked a 14 yr old like this.  Clearly he is here to disrupt and incite.  He is no different than Bill O'Reilly.  Either Markos owns him or doesn't.  And yes, if Flaw is still here after NOv. 6, I will spend every future netroots nation conference Markos attends and future radio and TV appearances of mine and tie MajorFlaw around Markos neck like white on rice.

          Do you seriously think that anybody sits bent over their keyboard and waiting for the ratings window to expire on this site so s/he can get in a last dig? If you do, that says far more about you than you should be willing to share in public.

          I noticed an obviously bogus rating when I checked hiddens (as I do routinely, that being part and parcel of the responsibilities of a trusted user on this site). I uprated.

          When are you going to stop this pointless vendetta? "Outing"? How do you out someone who posted her own personal information on this very site? You should have been banned the last time you were warned about this crap.

          •  your uprating was abusive (0+ / 0-)

            and runs afoul of the rules.

            And you've done this many times over.

            There is no "vendetta" other than that of Flaw and your crew.

            You own Flaw's comment regarding Asher, you own it.

            Are you going to say the 12 people who Hred him were wrong?

          •  you should be banned (0+ / 0-)

            for uprating this clearly bannable comment and manipulating ratings.

            You can not explain why the rating was bogus.  It's ratings abuse pure and simple on your part.

            As for outing, when you go back 6 months to find an obscure comment and then link to it, that's an outing.  It does not matter the intent or who posted it first.

            I think the majority of this site is tired of what you, bottles, trashablanca, Flaw and a few others have done.  And yes, Kos will have to make a choice, the majority of us or your small pack of thugs.

            I can live with it either way.

      •  bottles just committed upratings abuse (0+ / 0-)

        as predicted, bottles would come in at the last minute to uprate.  Bottles is Major Flaw's defacto uprater, the equivalent of Major Flaw's sockpocket.

        This is about the 25th time Majorflaw has had his upraters take him out of troll alley.
