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.
