Another diary attacking this site

. . . is not what we need.  It's boring and getting real repetitious.

You don't like this site?  Goodbye.  Farewell.  Vaya con dios.  Don't let the door hit your . . .

You'd run your site differently?  Awesome!  Go to blogger and start one up.  Show us how it's done.  Let a thousand flowers bloom.  Let the best site prevail in the free marketplace of ideas.  I'm sure your site, run your way, would be just the greatest!

You criticise this site's moderators for failing to control, i.e., censor, the posters?  Heck, there are dozens of sites that impose ideologically uniformity.  There's no shortage of thought police on line.  I'm sure you can find a site where you can agree with everything you read and get kudos for all you write.

But, I like a site where people disagree and debate strategy and issues and personalities.  Where you can argue as long as you all agree that, at the end of the day, our nominee gets your vote (even if you cast that vote with fingers crossed and a clothes pin on your nose).  What's wrong with intellectual stimulation?  the challenge of defending your ideas?  the challenge of trying to pursuade someone?  Discussing and critiquing strategy because you're into politics and the process?  Grow to be more secure in your beliefs, and you won't be so threatened by disagreement.  

PS - No one's interested anymore in Cher's final final absolute last concert, or Mama Judd's never ending retirement tour.  And, we're not interested in yours.  You're leaving?  Go silently into the night.

Tips for STAYING !!

and if you go, no need to be a drama queen.

Re: Tips for STAYING !!

Reaper Bot and Bishop Rook have both been posting today, after yesterday so dramatically declaring in GBCW diaries that they are 'gone'.

It's pathetic.

Re: Tips for STAYING !!

I've already seen ReaperBot and Bishop Rook on here this morning, after yesterday both penning pathetic and sad GBCW diaries where they stated that they were GONE.

heh.

It must suck to not have an actual life.  These GBCWorlders are a pathetic and selfpitying bunch.

Obsessing about?

How about 'laughing at' lmao.

What a bunch of tools.

I can't offhand think of any greater

confederacy of dunces than the trolls who infest this once proud website.  The whole sorry lot of you nitwits deserve banning a hundred times over.  That that hasn't been done is sad testimony to the rundown nature of this entire enterprise.

You cry about how d-kos hurt your feewings

And then blast others for complaining.

We have already expunged most dixiecrats, trolls, and pumas from here. Obviously, we need to work a little harder.

What are you talking about?
Please link to what you say I've said.
I didn't like a site, so I left.  No speeches, no farewell diaries, and no return engagements.  My choice.  Why's that wrong?  I associate where and with whom I want.  D'uh.
And, as far as expelling dixiecrats?  I thought we want to make inroads in the south this year.  Get with the program, and drop your regional bias.  Thx.

Umm, guy, you're freaking username is one big shake o' the fist at Daily Kos.  You're really not in any position to talk.

"You are so lame kos."
Are you in eighth grade?  in 1992?
Seriously, who still talks like that?

Re: "You are so lame kos."

What a witty reply!

So you think being called "lame" is sooo 1992?

Nice try troll. You should get out more.

It is kind of sad that you keep trying.

WTF

How can a person whose moniker is designed to whine about another site complain about others who do the same?

Do you have even a shred of intellectual honesty??!??!

That's my point - I left - -

I didn't stay and whine and write navel gazing farewell diaries followed by a reluctant reconsidered return.

Re: That's my point - I left - -

You didn't stay and whine. You took your whining and adopted it as your handle. Which is more pathetic Screech?

Re: That's my point - I left - -
If your moniker was "2qwel4u" or "FrodoLives" or "mudbloodlover" you MIGHT be able to make that point.
But instead, you made your moniker a temple to your whininess yet chastise others for whining.

mudbloodlover!

I am going to nominate this comment for MyDD post of the day.

Re: Another diary attacking this site

Yep..

Like Kingsbridge?

I'm staying and will confront McTrolls..

Fuck'em

And I will stay and confront O'Trolls, vacuous blind followers of Obushma.

Folks like you.

Re: Another diary attacking this site
Calling people "O'Trolls" on this site doesn't even make sense.  This is a site that is dedicated to electing democrats, that includes Obama.  Trying to challenge posters who are following the mission of the site makes you a troll
Don't you have anything better to do with your time?
Weirdo...

Re: Another diary attacking this site

And I'll challenge people like you to meet me in a dark alley. I have posted my name and contact info on here plenty of times. You should give me a call sometime, sunshine.

When you criticize diaries....

which attack the Democratic nominee, you will be taken seriously.

by Glaurung 2008-08-06 08:01AM | 0 recs
So we may NEVER criticize the nominee?
Everything is great and fine and magic, no room to improve?
No.

Re: So we may NEVER criticize the nominee?

Only a fool doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut -- especiallly when the critisism is just regurgitated GOP lies, smears, and talking points.

You want to help America? Criticize Bush/McSame and the GOP -- at least on this Democratic site -- and save the phoney concerns about Obama. But if you must attack the Democratic nominee, at least go to a site where you won't be a troll.

Re: Another diary attacking this site

Great site but short on talk about liberal values and foreign policy, relatively speaking. Big on the election. But there is more to us than numbers. It's what the candidates stand for that counts.
