I'll donate via Road to 60 when you clean out the trash. [Update x2]

Tonight, these five new accounts've TR'ed every single one of my comments from the past month; piling troll-ratings onto old comments is only the latest in a series of flaunting this site's rules by Republican trolls. Not only have trolls like Rankles, Aliveandkickin, and Engels not been banned, they even have their rec/ratings access intact. You want political contributions in MyDD's name? Make the site's banner worth donating under again. It's long past time to take out the trash.
I'm a proud, wallet-opening Democrat who gives as much as I can as often as I can. MyDD needs to decide which audience it's really more interested in maintaining -- Democratic contributors like me, or Obama-bashers and Republicans. Don't ask me to open up my wallet in your name until you start actively undoing this site's devolution into a playground for trolls.
Update: Jerome responds below:
It's easy to throw tomatoes from the crowd. The ratings system is broken, it'll get replaced, don't waste your time with it.
I look forward to that, and thank ct for his work in implementing it when it happens. But this is more about your recent willingness to let trolls run rampant on this site at the expense of your long-time Democratic readership. If you were even half as "duly diligent" in dealing with today's post-primary trolls as you were in dealing with what you considered primary season's overzealous Obama supporters, things'd be quite different here.
You'd also do well to remember that the "tomato-throwing crowd" are the same folks you're asking to lend you fundraising credibility via an ActBlue donation in MyDD's name. Four, three, two years -- even a year ago -- I'dve contributed to a MyDD-branded fundraising effort without a second thought. Something's clearly changed, and you need to clean up your brand if you're wanting to use it for fundraising purposes.
Update 2: Jerome stopped in to mojo this comment:
Grow up and get over it Please. Of all things. This diary beats PUMA for being silly, pointless and vain.
