Wassup widdat?

Back in the day [way back], I was a rabid fan of Daily Kos, though only as a lurker, so possibly I'm just an inept user of the site's various features. Anyways, either from my own page, or from using the general search function, I can find this comment that I made back in February, but not these two comments that I made earlier this month.

And you are surprised for what reason?

People have become rabid over their candidates and rabies does affect brain functions.

oh, i'm not surprised at all. i almost got troll-rated out of existence over there many moons ago, long before the latest rabies epidemic started.

file this one under 'just a note in passing...'

In fairness (!?), the two comments not found were made only about a week ago. Perhaps something behind the scenes aggregates comments into a database periodically, rather than comments being instantly available to the search.

That said, I personally have nothing to do with Daily Kos. There are too many reasons not to participate over there.

it's possible they're temporarily overwhelmed by traffic, or have instituted some kind of moderation for us very infrequent commenters, but the default time period for search is '1 week - now' so i'm not really inclined to give any benefit of the doubt here.

but i'm not really into group blogs [exceptions: feministe, gfa51, ichc] so my feelings aren't hurt if they don't like me.

almost forgot, i have recently become a fan of corrente too, primarily because of lambert's signature line.

maybe it was a temporary glitch, all the links work for me.

the comments are all visible, but only the february one is returned if you search for all comments by hipparchia.
