So I’ve had a lot of people lately ask why I keep going back to DailyKos, and why I keep getting banned, and still going back for more.? Well, here’s the back story – super meta alert, but there’s some hilarity if you click through.

Update on vaudevillian post rec-list Kos banning!? This is too hilarious not to publish.

Mr. Russo,

You are, as you yourself point out, a previously banned user. We don’t permit banned users to return. The reason you were previously banned was not arbitrary. You posted despicable stuff, not just despicable but also inaccurate. And you got rightly tossed off the site for it. Since then you’ve sneaked back several times instead of apologizing for your over-the-line behavior and asking for reinstatement at the front door like a civilized person. And now we’re at fault for not helping you get […]

So I wrote a diary tonight using my latest Kos account for my campaign, on the hopeful news that Dennis would announce tomorrow he’s voting for the health care bill.? It hit the rec list almost instantly.? I got banned that minute.? I only found out I was banned again after I tried to reply to someone’s comment.? That diary will now sit on the rec list as long as folks want it to, while the user himself is banned from commenting in it. Laughable.

I don’t know who is in charge over there, but it’s become such a […]

Once more into the breach. ?This time, with videos. ?Lots of them. ?I’d leave a comment, rec it, tip it, but my DailyKos days appear to be over for good. ?I’m glad people like BWD remain, doing their best to remind us how far we’ve come. ?Long way yet to go, but we are on our way, in a new decade filled with promise instead of trepidation, hope instead of fear.

And here’s one more video, just for you, BWD.

Someone else is wondering. ?Payola anyone?

They pay people to blog here; they manipulate the system to get on the rec list, including–as verified–using Twitter to drive people here to rec their posts as soon as they are made, regardless of what they contain.

As a result, they make it seem like their views are more popular than they are.

Here’s what I know about the public option campaign I got hoodwinked by. ?Bob Brigham told me he was paid $4,000 a month to do blogger outreach back in the summer. ?Others surely got paid to blog at […]

Today, there’s a recced diary at Kos lamenting the departure of blackwaterdog, which I documented when it happened. ?The purge at Kos is ongoing, and it’s really a sad commentary on the state of the Democratic Party netroots, in one particular manner. ?When I returned to DailyKos after numerous bannings, I wrote about the value of what Markos Moulitsas has created in DailyKos.

If you want to change our country, DailyKos is a required arena of engagement. ?And for that, Markos Moulitsas deserves all the credit in the world. I’d love to someday debate Markos, have a […]

Question for Markos

On December 26, 2009 By

If you get banned from DailyKos for calling out painfully obvious self-promotional Glenn Beck biz model media whoring by Cenk Uygur and Jane Hamsher weeks?before everyone else notices, can you get un-banned? ?Just askin.

Big time. ?And it’s ABOUT time. ?Thank God someone over there has a fucking clue. ?In this instance, it’s Jed Lewison with the brain. ?Now if only I can get my account re-activated!

Enjoy an entire presidency of irrelevance. You’re off to a fine start!
