The Troll is Back

One of MYDD's most notorious HR abusing trolls has returned, posting a diary begging forgiveness for it's trollish behavior.

Some weeks ago this poster left MYDD after begging and pleading in emails for everyone to leave MYDD for it's new blog (where it hoped to cash in on the election fever).  You all know of whom i speak.  It was a well-known HR abuser.  

When the mods refused to ban Clinton supporters from MYDD it left to make a new blog, and enticed others to leave here and join it (I know, I got one of it's emails begging me to leave MYDD).

Now that it's new blog has failed it has come crawling back here.  It started with a diary (which it swore it would never write here again) admitting that it was a troll all along.

For instance:

"I've spent the last two or three months demonizing and vilifying the people around here who said they couldn't or wouldn't vote for Obama"

Yes you have.  You have consistently demonized anyone who didn't agree with you.  It's nice to see you admitting your trolldom.

"I've claimed that none of them were true Democrats and said their motivations were purely self-centered. I've called them fools and Republicans. I've even called some of them racists."

Yes you have called many folks racist. It was your standard demonizing trick.  You should be ashamed.

"This is a site dedicated to electing Democrats"

This site is none of your concern.  You left here in a huff to start your own blog.  Again, I alert the mods to the fact that you tried to get people to leave here to join you (against MYDD terms of service).

To anyone concerned, here is a portion of the email it was sending around.

""I can't make the decision of what to tell people. We aren't entirely set up anyway. ...I can tell  you that anyone who visits the new blog, will be posting under a relatively strict set of guidelines. The MyDD troll fest is the reason we're doing this in the first place, and people will be banned for any sort of trolling.""

Yes and you broke MYDD rules by trying to lure people away from here.

MODS, be advised that this troll will only continue to attack people who disagree with it, HR abusing them and enticing others to do the same.

It is a deceitful, treacherous thing.  It lives under a bridge and lives only to pounce on the unsuspecting.

"Well. I'm here to issue an apology."

Apology refused.  Go back to your amateur blog that no one visits.  You've burned your bridges here.

Re: The Troll is Back

Oh, look at the sockpuppet recommends suddenly catapulting this bizarre diary onto the rec list.


What the point is, I could not tell you.  But check out how many stupid diaries are recommended by this exact same group of userIDs.

Man, I'll never get that bandwidth back.

Re: Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhh time for monocle cat

My sincerest apologies.  switching sides2 (the new and improved version!) could make this unfortunate waste of space go away by deleting the entire diary.  Or he could get his sockpuppets to troll-rate the post, but I don't think any of them have the 0-rate ability.

switching sides2, for the love of all bandwidth, please delete this diary and let the poorly photoshopped cats with monocles be gone as well.

Re: Ohhhhhh yeahhhhhh time for monocle cat

On balance I would agree that deleting this diary would be the next best thing to never having written it in first instance.

Re: Shame rec for you!



You've been gone for so a minute...when did you go anywhere?

And, btw, while you were using your feminine wiles to lure the unsuspecting away from MYDD....why didn't you email ME?

Am I not 'hot' enough for you?

Or did you just invite engels and switching sides?

Highly shame rec'd rankles!


Did my "holding on sweetie" start a blog up and not invite me?

Curses sricki!

I'm glad you left and then came back while never leaving!

I knew you'd steal my love!

I'll just have to go over to your new super blog and drop donut bombs on your ass until you release teh engels!

I have a question though (troll diarist)?

Where the hell is the link to the new engels blog?

You can't tease like this and not come through!

Re: Shame rec for you!

I was wondering that, too.

Oh, and Switching Sides, you are free to leave when you like. You've never contributed anything, best I can remember. And Sricki's site is not only composed of members who post here consistently, it is pretty great.

Re: Shame rec for you!

Though it's not 'Sricki's Blog' (Atdnext runs it), C4O rocks...and some of the best folks from MYDD are C4Os. Atdnext, Canadian Gal, Sricki and many other 'MYDD All-Stars' do a great job with that blog.

They are consistent in posting positive diaries both here and there (and on other political blogs).

Good bunch of Democrats and we are lucky to have them!

Re: Shame rec for you!

Oh...and FWIW...I don't think that Jerome minds a bit that C4O branched out from MYDD. LOTS of great blogs have branched out from's one of the reasons Jerome is known as the 'BlogFather'.

Contibuted Anything?

Sorry vcalzone, but I have to say you're wrong about Switching's failure to contribute.  A quick look at his/her profile shows that he/she has, in fact, contributed a prior diary.  While this diary tapers down to sternly refuses an apology, Switching's prior diary both covers a whole raft of apologies.  It appears that Switching Sides is very thematically focused.

To save you wear & tear on your clicking finger, here's the prior diary in its entirety:

Thinking of switching back to Obama (Apology accepted)

by switching sides2, Thu Jun 12, 2008 at 06:57:26 AM EST

I'm thinking of switching back to Obama if he will apologize and make right the following missteps:

Apologize for using the racism slur against Hillary and Bill. As they have done more for AA's than any white politician in history, it is ridiculous for them to be charged with racism.  

Apologize for disenfranchising millions of voters in MI and FL.

Apologize for stealing 4 of Hillary's delegates.

Apologize for lying about Jeremiah Wright's portrayal in the media as being simply 'snippets' handpicked to make him look bad. (Wright later proved that these were not simply snippets taken out of context when he rehashed them at the National Press Club).

Apologize for not leaving that racist congregation sooner.

Apologize for his connections to the convicted felon Rezko and terrorist Ayers.


It's quite a laundry list, but if he wants my vote, he needs to make amends.


One more for the apologia hat-trick?  

Maybe this will help comfort the diarist...

Is it really against the rules

to invite people to visit other blogs?

I mean, there are links to other blogs on the home page.

Just curious.

But again, who cares if they invite you to another blog? What exactly is the BFD?
