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

I only skimmed it; seems like they didn't like the suggestion that DOJ stalled its investigations until the elections?

yep, and they also thought the original title over there was misleading (anything to get eyes looking at a diary) :)

Sigh, Armando is still around? Years ago, that obnoxious guy was one of the reasons I didn't stick around at dKos.

Up to his usual obnoxious rep there. What purpose does all that serve?

What was the original title? Not that it matters much: I saw that in the end Armando attacked the substance of the diary, too.

was originally Murdochgate: US Grand Jury Set to Pinch Rupert for Bribery?, but that turned into arrested as I didn't think piched was right for US, then laughingly put breaking: in at the beginning. unfortunately that was the point the peoples house I was visiting had their network fail, and it's a case of rebooting the link, then rebooting the pc to get the software working from the caravan where they live.

By the time I got back online Armageddon was in progress with people being in full on arsehole mode.

Learned the very hard way that it's not a good idea to post anything controversial -- or poorly phrased -- right before leaving for a few hours.  At least you didn't get banned as I was after being there for almost ten years.  Only lost my TU status a couple of times.  First way back in late 2003 when Armando's gang of Clarkies were the site bullies.  Then briefly in 2004 when I had a dust-up with MSOC.  The ring-leaders in getting me banned have since been banned, but to the dKos powers that be that is as irrelevant to my status as being one of the earliest reader/commentators.

Sounds worse than (allegedly) wikipedia [citation needed].

Jeebus, just read some of the comments. What a tempest in a teapot.

I think there may be a better synonym for Armando than 'teapot.'

Can't quite think of it right now though.

... in Australian English, is "bloody wanker".

I've been accused of being a Marxist, yet while Harpo's my favourite, it's Groucho I'm always quoting. Odd, that.

ROTFLMAO over the image of Armando singing I'm a little teapot.

There are several people over there who made me conclude some time ago that dKos is not worth my time, particularly a set of Russophones who firmly believe no one gets to comment on anything east of Poland without their permission.  The worst offenders are exactly what you would expect: programmers who are overgrown 13-year-olds with a penchant for clinging to the most Randian elements of the Gospels of St. Heinlein and St. Pournelle.

Thanks.

Aha! I successfully finished it! Last comment!

I did, however, skip some hundred comments are so in the middle.
