As most folks around here know by now, The Seminal is a place where, among other things, FDL’s readers can post diaries much as Daily Kos’ readers can post diaries — the main difference being that The Seminal is not open to being taken over by persons organized with intent to game the troll-rating system to zap people they see as their political enemies.
One of FDL’s readers wrote a diary in which the support of TPM for the health care bill that is currently being reconciled is mentioned and condemned. That apparently drew the attention of a self-described "TPM minion", marina95 (who was riffing off of the diarist’s description of TPM and its readership) who had to stop by and play the Civility and Spelling Cards — which is pretty funny as this person’s term of choice for FDL and its readers is "Firebaggers", as was shown in a previous drive-by commenting in a post of Blue Texan’s from last week. (Ironically enough, the one attempt by her at a fact-based argument in that comment was filleted very nicely by BT himself. But I digress.)
But, just in case marina95 wants to do another drive-by, here are some posts she might like reading.
