the difference between all your examples is whether you are describing the object or acting on the object. a descriptive form could be i dont give shit = i give nothing. whereas an action would be i dont give a shit = i dont care. each has a different meaning.

it is not plural, the liberal weblog community is singular. it is singular for the same reason a flock of birds is singular. there are many birds in the group, but it is still one group and therefor single. since it is singular, has is correct.
had the sentence read the ranks of liberal weblog communities (has or have) increased. have would then be correct because you are referring to more than one community
