1. I sent them all to trash can.

There must have been about twenty posts all the same.

Then I ran virus scan.

3. I thought maybe it was just a new person

who doesn’t know better, but it could be on purpose. I trashed all the posts.

5. Is it just me, or was there a threat in those posts about election day on DU?

7. The posts are still there. The quote is this:

Election day on DU will be one to be remembered
We'll be out in force

9. There is another post from RBG Forever with this message:


RBG Forever
The second female supreme court justice
Remembering her service to her country
Under her guidance
Memories that won't be forgotten
Promises that will be kept

Woman of a generation
One of a kind
Nobody will forget

Election day on DU will be one to be remembered
We'll be out in force

RBG Forever has made 30 posts. I'm not sure what to think of this. Sounds threatening, but why?

11. It's still on DU.

OK, I didn't see that. I've never run across these before. Good lesson. Thanks for pointing it out.

14. I've alerted the GD hosts - they'll be able to lock it at least

and maybe get someone (EarlG or Elad, if necessary) to delete it.

22. Posting it here enabled me to alert the hosts on the thread, and it was promptly deleted

Up until then, it was a recommendable/replyable thread. So the post above did serve a useful purpose.

24. Someone can - and a message to EarlG or Elad from them will bear more weight

than one from you or me. They could have locked it, anyway, to stop replies and recommendations. It's possible someone had already noted that thread was left, and it was a job for someone to do, but it did indeed disappear a few minutes after I alerted on it.

12. Yes there are a few

Someone posted a threat indicating hacking will happen on DU on Election day. They were smug and even indicated their wish that we would at least be of some challenge this time.. as opposed to the last time.

I alerted on it.. by the time I finished alerting, they were removed from the site.

I suppose I didn't find their post threatening, or maybe I wasn't quite awake to notice.

It has been trying to fix itself for the last hour or so.

I am posting this from a tablet.

For what it's worth.
