I’m yet another newbie to Motley Moose who is coming here to get a way from DailyKos. I’m hoping that indeed there is discussion here without the meanness and pettiness that has taken over at GOS.
What has caused me to leave after many years there? I was close to completely leaving at several points during the last year. I had at one point decided to leave, but was cajoled by the people in Kosability to remain and just hang out in the community.
That worked for a while, but two events in the last couple of weeks changed my mind. The first is, of course, the purge and the resultant call for the boycott. Second, I was really offended when front pager Joan wrote a hair-on-fire front page article about how Obama is out to destroy SSI and that a congressional report proves it. When it was pointed out that the report actually presented the opposite conclusion to the one she had made, nothing happened except more diaries that followed that still had that glaring error. No acknowledgement was made to the many comments that pointed out the error, no apologies for her error, nothing. I ended up sending a message to her, but when nothing happened from that, and the results of the purge became evident, it was time to get out. Not only am I not providing the clicks to the site, but I was a subscriber and finally gave up on that.
What is strange is that somehow I still have five bars of mojo, I assume because I had a couple of diaries at the end that indicated my displeasure with the site and my support of the proposed boycott.
Due to a post at ThePeoplesView today, I did make one last trip over to DK, where I verified my mojo but also verified the negativity and all the isms that have been plaguing the site of late. While I may occasionally wander over to continue to read Kosability, I just can’t deal with so much of what is happening there any more.
Sorry that this isn’t as quick an introduction as I’d planned, but I guess it is important for the Moose to understand where I’m coming from. I’m happy to see so many familiar names here today as I found this site. I hope that I can contribute something to the site as well.
