Don't bother posting today, no point.

A DUer was called a paid troll by another DUer and I alerted, I got a 1-6 leave vote and I got ribbed by the jury.

It's now okay to call another DUer a paid troll, SMH.

Enjoy Christmas if you celebrate and don't stress the small stuff here.



Now I'm off too finish up shopping! Yikes!

2. That's nothin! Here's what passes for discourse by some of our brethren on DU:

this is DUer hootinholler, talking about William:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1107&pid=30492


On second thought I take that big FUCK YOU back. I wouldn't fuck you even with someone else's dog's cock. You have proven yourself to be utterly and irretrievably morally repugnant. You have stooped to depths that are lower than whale shit in the fucking Marianas trench. There's a lot of pressure down there for anyone with a shred of fucking decency but once your balls are shriveled to the obvious pinhead size it affects the brain and there's little left than to attempt to smear the shit on the walls when it didn't stick whilst you were flinging it.


Charming, isn't it?

And though this swill has been brought directly to the attention of the administrators, it has been left standing.

So I guess that's who we are now.

5. Yep! The post was alerted and allowed to stand, and then I wrote to the admins about it, and it

remains one of the great pile of unanswered ATA posts.

I know dozens of people alerted, so they are certainly aware of it.

And yet, it stands to this day with no consequences to the poster.

So maybe it is what we are.

Looks like "Admin" is taking some holiday time off - if this is what they have to monitor? - can't blame them.

As for a "jury" of our peers?

Shame.

I couldn't be happier to be in the beautiful minority.

37. Yes, it is

 

This is what happens when people get emotionally invested in candidates. This is what happens when people makes heroes out of politicians, and then get their feelings hurt when their "heroes" are attacked. This is what happens when people have no lives outside of DU.

And the worst has not even begun, trust me. In another month or two, GD will be a flamewar like you've never seen on DU.

20. Yep. And it was alerted multiple times, at least one person (myself) brought it to

the admin's attention in ATA, and yet there it stands. Two posters who described it as disgusting were hidden for doing so, but that swill still stands.

28. JURY RESULTS..

On Thu Dec 24, 2015, 09:31 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

What a fucking asshole!

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1107&pid=31135

REASON FOR ALERT

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate.

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

Personal attack.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Thu Dec 24, 2015, 09:52 PM, and the Jury voted 2-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: No explanation given

Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: I wonder if the alerter would have voted to hide the personal attack made by the poster that this person chastised? This so called attack is mild by comparison. I will not give the alert stalker his wish and vote to leave this post.

Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: In comparison to the post being replied to, this is MILD.

If THAT post is what the Democratic Underground stands for, it's going to run people away from the Democratic Party. There was nothing in the post H replied to that warranted such a vile post.

There is no reason for a homophobic posts like this, with a touch of beastiallity included, to be on a 'liberal' discussion board as DU claims to be.

Yet this is what the majority of DUers term as acceptable discourse? What does this have to do with political discussion? How can Democrats discuss issues that matter to the nation with this kind of post being allowed to stand?

Sadly, my vote to leave this, a common but unfortunate comment by one poster to another, means nothing, it will be hidden. Yet the more egregious post was allowed to represent the new face of the Democratic Party to the world.

If I did not know real life Democrats who would never attack someone for their sex life with such pejorative terms, others who are seeking to escape the insanity of the party of Cruz, Trump and the rest will not want to stand with us to defeat them.

Since Management has mainly adopted a hands-off policy (and I really don't blame them,considering the kind of community that DU is becoming) nothing will be done about the true offense of the post of which H is proud. The vote will go solely on the basis of Team A vs. Team B, or whatever this place consists of now.

I used to post a lot here, but honestly, conservative websites are less abusive than this kind of comment. I won't visit them because I cannot countenance their swill, but this place is making me lose hope that anyone can govern this nation in a just and equal manner.

Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: I'm not get in the middle of this kinda shit, esp on Xmas Eve (or Xmas, if yer on the East Coast or whatever, just not in L.A.).

Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE

Explanation: Frankly, I agree.

Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given

Juror #7 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: No explanation given

I wasn't on the jury but a juror sent them to me and I wanted you and everyone to see the results.

Thank you for your post, ronny and Merry Christmas~

pretty awful too. But if you still can't find the post, he was so proud of it he put it into his journal.

33. Once upon a time.. ..

I have seen posters who made homophobic comments much milder than this insane rant banned within minutes, even on a Sunday morning. . Yet the person who spewed this post remains in good standing here and is supported by members who pretend to be "progressive." It's one thing when an individual flames out, but quite another when jurors and the Administrators make themselves complicit.

It's sad that DU has sunk to the level of the Santorums and the Huckabees.

We let our votes in the primary speak for us. Let them be mean and treat us like a wet dog. We'll get the last laugh come Super Tuesday. last I checked, you can't win a primary with just 31 percent of the vote.

27. Really--between the partisan excuse making articles

written by socialist 'data experts' no less (how convenient) that completely gloss over the fact that people have been fired and more will be soon, most likely, and that kind of abrogation of the rules of civility, there is no point.

Let them have fun! Let them think that it's something other than their rudeness that keeps us out of their chest thumping, back-slapping rants.

It's going to be a tough adjustment for them in fairly short order. I will feel badly for some people who have their dreams dashed; for others I will just think on the whole goes around/comes around thing and note that it applies.
