Dracomicron wishes MyDD well *Updated*

I was poking around what many here affectionatly call "The great orange satan" earlier and ran across a diary by someone who has for some reason lost posting privledges here. Not a banning I gather, just suspension of posting privledges. I won't comment as to any reasons why privledges were suspended, because I don't know. A few weeks ago a diary was "smuggled" in for a prominant Clinton supporter, so I figured it might be acceptable. I'm not going to go on for a paragraph or so about censorship because I really don't see blog moderation to be an infringment of anyones 1st amendment rights. I do hate to take up the space of another diary about some Penn. poll, but without further ado, below the fold Dracomicron has something they'd like you to know.
Around noon on Friday, 4/18, I lost my ability to post to you, and multiple letters to the site admins have not resolved the issue nor have they revealed the reason behind my handicap.UPDATE: It appears that Drac is back, everyone keep an aye on him and make sure he doesn't start praising Lou Dobbs
I am a Barack Obama supporter, but I believe that Hillary Clinton should be honored for all of her public service and would be a better president than John McCain. My last post to MyDD was praise of the vigorous primary process and optimism that all of the excited voters, donations, and infrastructure caused by the tightly contested race espouses.
I try to be fair to both Democratic candidates and point out factual problems of both, though I admit to knowing more to defend Barack Obama with, as that is my admitted bias. I never cite right-wing news sources without warning and caveat, and I have never published a smear diary. If I cannot return, then I would like to simply re-iterate my hopes that MyDD continue to be a place where differing opinions can be shared, but that the tone of such discussions be as civil as possible.
I would like to conclude with a by-no-means comprehensive list of the MyDD posters and diarists that I have come to enjoy the work of: ragekage, Veteran75, upstate girl, Student Guy, MBNYC, GFORD, TruthMatters, Populista, Xanthe, professor, vadasz, IowaMike, DreamsOfABlueNation, KathyM, CardBoard, Drewid, and even folks I disagree with but are honest and willing to debate, such as freemansfarm and sricki. I'm sure I missed dozens.
I hope you are all well. Go Democracy!
