There Back...

I very seldom start discussions. Just not my style.

But many of you predicted that those who
were forced to leave DU for refusing to conform to DU rules after the 16 primaries would be back in different a guises prior to the 18 primaries. Well, you were correct.

And they are attempting to use the same argument that worked so well for them in 16.

the same as she started in 2015 against Hillary. Her posts about Hillary here and then at that JPR site are absolutely vile. All it took was 75,000 people nationwide to be brainwashed.

Kennedy is also another target.

some extra sympathy for those whom she knows voted for Trump because the Democrat wasn't good enough, saying they should have voted for Jill Stein as the "peace" candidate. Seriously??

Who could not see that Trump was an absolute con man. Jill Stein hangs out with global murderous oligarchs who invade bordering countries. But they are just fine -- not Hillary, though. It's is absolutely sickening to see that crap again, starting all over with other Democrats. NO. No more. And to take lectures from them about what is so wrong with Democrats is just pure insanity.

The contraction of 'they are' (as opposed to 'their', the possessive pronoun or 'there' which refers to the opposite of 'here').

Secondly, there (also used as a pronoun introducing a sentence or clause) is a dedicated group of long-time DU'ers, called MIRT, that spend a great deal of time reviewing new posters to weed out returnees and trolls, as well as site administrators that do a great deal to control who has access to post on this site.

If you suspect someone of returning here to cause trouble it would probably be a better idea to send a PM to a MIRT member or to an Admin than to start a thread about your concern.

And would not let me change. I can’t remember it ever autocorrecting from proper usage before.

Autocorrect will not change that. Contractions can always be expanded if it's (it is) a problem.

Browbeating Democrats for pie-in-the-sky standards that third parties are not held to. It's so inane. All it took was 75,000 people nationwide to fall for their bull.
