Wow. DP is one of the most toxic forums I've ever participated in.

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by GP6971 (a host of the General Discussion forum).

90% of all posts are attacking Bernie Sanders like crazy. Various posters behaving like Trump supporters trolling people who support a candidate they don't like with cry emojis just like Trump supporters tell libs "aww, poor libs are sad."

Has that forum always been this hateful and disgustingly toxic? If that's the kind of unity I should expect from Dems, I guess I better prepare to leave the country because Trump will likely capitalize on it.

1. Like I've said in a few other posts,

this is typical primary behavior. 2008 and 2016 were worse around here. Itíll get much calmer after we have a nominee. Everyone will unite to get rid of Trump and those who refuse to do that are usually kicked off the forum.

3. It is toxic, but IMHO not the way you describe it. Look at profiles! n/t

4. The infamous Primary Wars.

It always gets like this here; that's why there is a separate forum for DP, so we can avoid it if we want.

This too shall pass.

5. At least they're finally fired up, which is a good thing. Moderate

Democrats are no longer taking the guff thrown out by the Bros.

14. Bros are a myth.

Name one legitimate poll or political scientist who uses Bernie Bros as a term.

It's a fiction that erases the diversity among Sanders supporters.

It's obviously ok to support others for the nomination, but doing it with references to fictional characters is out of bounds.

7. At least you can stay in GD now and avoid the bloodbaths

GP was just recently added just for that purpose. The way you say it is in there is what it was out here in GD before. The mods got smart.

10. I stay out of that forum.

People's ability to discuss and debate is very much absent in that forum. Reminds me of the old Gungeon a few years back. I would strongly suggest staying out of the forum, for your sanity.

13. 'Tis the season when the alert trolls come out in force

The ones that follow you from OP to OP and hit "alert" the second you say anything that could remotely break forum rules.

Post at your own risk.

15. Things have heated up since Sanders took the lead, but...

... I've been consoled since the primaries began at the number of posts where someone supporting one candidate says good things about another candidate. That's the main tone of this forum, or, at least has been. An example of respectful disagreement.
