    Got troll rated nearly out of existence on Street Prophets for my trouble mind you.

    •  I was always on the wrong side of the Obama tide (6+ / 0-)

      here, it seemed.

      Defending Clinton against oddly extreme attacks by fellow Obama supporters.

      Defending Obama for his nuanced and evolving (forced by other hands) relationship with Rev. Wright.

      Noting that Obama is not the Saviour for all things, but really seems a pragmatic thinker, an integrator of information who eschews common ideological bents that we tend to debate at this site.

      etc.

      Never got troll-rated, though.  Of course, you have a more succinct voice than I do.

        I find funny? Is that fact that people like you have to point that out every time Obama is in some kind of "crisis" and everyone is a bit disappointed. You guys come around and are like: I told you guys he wasn't this or that. WTF? You want a cookie?

        To err is human. To forgive, divine.

          his being troll-rated for simply having an unpopular opinion, comparing it to my parallel experiences.  Rather than pointing fingers at anyone and saying "I told you so."

          Aside, I sometimes offer reminders that we could have thought differently in the past before moving up and down the habitual recoil range of responses, sure.  I'll definitely use myself as an example, because someone has to back my assertions - I offer myself the primary target.  We're supposed to be a progressive community - we should look back a bit while looking forward, fairly.

          But, if you have a particular problem with me, come out with it - don't wave your hand at "you guys" and act like you're making a point which has any contextual validity beyond your personal desire to vent for reasons unknown.
