PLEASE! Stop Daily Kos from Hijacking Good Diaries!

Texas Darlin put a lot of time and effort into a worthy piece.  
It was selected to the Recommended List by popular vote.
It is called "Chicago Politics As Usual."

She writes here because Clinton supporters were harassed
off of Daily Kos, with threats of being outted if they remained.

Daily Kos became Daily Hate Spam.

The same people who destroyed Kos, have followed the Clinton
supporters here.

These Trolls continue their acts of harassment by filling the comments
area with vacuous, negative insults, and wrecking the reader experience.

I would like to humbly request that Troll comments be removed from
"Chicago Politics As Usual."

I would like to enjoy a well crafted diary, and not be assaulted with
garbage like:

"This is just a copy/pasted diary, like a half dozen others on this thread.

Nothing new.

This is a hackneyed attempt to try and smear Obama in the vain hopes something will stick, as this is Clinton's only way to win the nomination at this point.

Nothing new."

Obviously it is new to a lot of people, including myself. And the subject is a serious character indicator. 
Please delete Troll comments.

Tags: boring troll, Daily Kos, duck, Duck-duck, GOOSE, hijacking diaries, internetstar is lame., logic melts the internetstar, please put me out of my misery by deleting my account, Student Guy added this tag because he fully supports the comments taken from that diary in referring to it and he demands that his name be added to them like a cosponsor, trolls (all tags)

Note my comment is not disparging

all Clinton supporters just the ones who are most likely freepers like the guy who called Mr. Obama an affirmity action candidate.

I rather like the rational Clinton supporters like VAAlex, like bobbank, like sricki (and I know I am missing a ton of people here but these are the names that I can think of off the top of my head)

I especially love

since that seems to be the trope today, the comments disparaging affirmative action.

Oh, and the ones earlier today about how blacks need to wait their turn and not get hoodwinked by that false messiah, Obama.

I really think this Operation Chaos business is quite real. Conversely, I've seen comments on Daily Kos about Hillary from high UIDs that go down some very regrettable paths; only there, they get zapped really quickly.

You can't prevent people from disagreeing.

I frequently go into Obama supporters' diaries and let them know when they're full of shit. If they want to tell us we're full of shit, too, that's their right.

Besides, stifling dissent is often a very bad thing. If everyone around here agreed with me, I'd leave.

Re: is this true?

This was from her "uppity" (since cleaned up) diary

Also, questions about Obama's character, experience, judgment, and ability to empathize with common folk have increasingly plagued him.

Along with this inimitable bit of wisdom:

<i. Obama, on the other hand, is an incessant whiner, which of course is an unappealing quality in a friend, colleague, or spouse.  But in a general election candidate for President, petulance is a sure recipe for disaster.</i>

If she wasn't so nasty, I'd swear it was self-parody.

You know one difference between me and you guys is I would never up-rate someone for a post that is 100% personal attack.  If you don't like her, don't read what she writes.  Otherwise, get used to the idea that there are going to be people you find incredibly disagreeable in life, and learn to move on.

I have been here a lot longer than Darlin... andafter Obama is our nominee I will still be here after she leaves...(I do not nor have ever posted at kos..(although a quick glance on any day demonstrates they at least deal with topics beyond the Democratic Primary.)
As a Christian I recently took exception to her tossing around the word "Messiah". Her Diaries have little thought and are, to me, screeds.
A person does not have to an Obama supporter to object to what she or anyone posts...

Every time alegre posts, folks from Hillaryis44 drop 50 rec's in an the difference is?

Many of us (most of us?) have been users on both forums longer than Hillary Clinton has been officially running for president, right?

Is there a way to check user ID numbers here?  I'm not aware of any way, so we can prove it, but I know I've been here a long time.  Not always active, but I have membership and have participated on almost all the larger blogs and forums for years.  And many of the people you care calling DailyKos trolls are probably old hands, as well.

I didn't read or participate in TexasDarlin's diary, but I can imagine what it was like.

If you're new to the blogosphere, just get used to it.  Some of us are rather ubiquitous.  We have no lives.

The easiest way I know of to check UIDs is by mousing over the names in a list of recommenders. For instance, checking the people who have mojoed your comment, I can see that my UID is 15970, GFORD's is 26635, and tbetz's is 30703.

Of course, some people save a lot of time and effort by recommending diaries without reading anything much beyond the name of the author.

"The same people who destroyed Kos, have followed the Clinton supporters here".

I do not agree with that characterisation as to what has happened, but for the people that do agree, perhaps they should ask themselves if it would have been better to fight the Kos people in their own village rather than run away, come here and destroy this village.
