Does anyone know why G2geek hasn't commented since Nov 19 and last diaried Nov. 11? Searching diary titles since Nov. 1 with his user name, brought back only "Top Comments," "High-Impact Posts" and a diary in which one of his comments got 339 recs. It was detailed and thoughtful about how to respond to people who are critical of immigrants and ended with some good advice about persuasive communication:

The key to it is looking for things that are personal and that you & "Bob" agree on, and then linking those to progressive points that will stick in his head later.

Talking about immigrants in the abstract, or making classic liberal points about the First Nations and slaves, doesn't go to the root of Bob's problem, which is insecurity based on fear.  But linking immigration to his own family and to hard work, helps overcome the fear by reference to common values such as family and hard work.  

Overcome the fear, and the rest will follow in its own good time.  

On Nov. 12, lotlizard's comment about him got 108 recs, and three comments agreeing:
G2geek is one of the sharpest minds on dKos
His page here says: "San Francisco Bay Area. Telecommunications engineer."

Without invading his privacy, is it possible to find out if he's OK? Perhaps he's been to SF Kossacks meet-ups? Or someone knows him personally and can let him know he's missed? Sorely!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
