Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well, you're the exception that proves the rule. I always got the impression that your acceptance was due to commenting on energy issues, which allowed you to branch out into more "exciting" areas.

I just tended to wade into the conversation in my only-ever-so-slightly confrontational clod-hopping way and people didn't like hearing some foreigner talk about the USA in that way. On that site, my nationality had been well-established long before.

I really didn't fancy repeating the experience on kos.

no, Jerome had to fight to get accepted at Daily Kos.  Luckily for him, he is stubborn so he didn't give up.
