I mean, it's not as if there have never been questions before about Markos' dubious past and what his agenda might be in policing left wing dissent and discourse the way he does.
Anyway, today Buhdydharma posted a diary in which he quotes the banned detoqueville as saying,
I want to thank everyone who supported my reinstatement - be it out of friendship or on principle. I really do appreciate it. But alas, I will not be seeking reinstatement. It is Kos's website, all his own, and so it is his decision.
( . . . )
I was just locked out. That is a lot of power for one individual to have over another. And that's one of the reasons I haven't asked to be reinstated and would not accept it if it was offered. I will never allow someone to have that kind of power over me again.I have never seen such solidarity among dissidents at DailyKos. But, I disagree with detoqueville on this point: Markos C.A. Moulitsas (MAMZ) says that his website is uniquely important and helps to make policy and politicians' careers within the Democratic Party. MAMZ seeks to "crash the gates" of the Democratic Party and remake it in his own image.
