I understand why ABL was angry, but I think it is profoundly unfair to call this the actions of Firedoglake, because it wasn’t. It was some idiot in the diary sections (My FDL). FDL has a lot of people I like to read, such as Marci, Tbogg, and D-Day, and while she hates me I even enjoy some of the stuff Jane does. But with every large community, you’ll have shit like this.
In short, blaming FDL for this jackass is kinda like the wingnuts scouring the DKOS after the Loughner shooting and attributing diarist Blue Boy’s stuff to Markos. Or, to make it more clear, someone scouring the comments section here and attributing Brick Oven Bills ramblings to me.
You can see how that would be unfair.
