Its understandable to get angry at the OPs in GDP

but no one in GDP is speaking for either candidate.
Everyone is speaking only for themselves.

So we shouldn't blame the candidate...no matter what their supporters say on DU.

2. The OP's in GDP by Sanders supporters have ALWAYS spoken about their candidate's

issues.

I've yet to see one for Clinton's - they seem to not have much to say about them - but there's that history thing I guess it's hard to put lipstick on and tout something new when overcoming the harm is much too difficult. imho.

7. calling someone a brockian troll

without proof that they are in fact a brockian troll...is the same as lying.
Now I realize you aren't calling out any particular individual...
but you have to realize that people see what they want to see.
If you want to find brockian trolls, you will see brockian trolls.

you might want to believe that is the case...but just because you want to believe it doesn't make it true.

I'm seeing disrupters all over the place.
Some pretending to be clinton supporters
others pretending to be sanders supporters
and neither is helping their candidate...they are just causing problems for no good reason

8. Obviously there's no proof...just applying Occam's Razor.

 

A couple-three low-post-count, just-registered users with little thought given to their screen name repeating the same talking points in barely-varied language would be un-suspicious. Literally dozens of them...not so much.

9. so why isn't GOP disrupters an equally good explanation?

it would be in Brock's interest to placate the Sanders supporters....as indeed it is in Sanders interest to placate the Clinton supporters.

Only the GOP benefits from this chaos.

10. Why would they? Most every poll shows Bernie is more dangerous to them in November.

11. 2 points to keep in mind.

1) DU isn't representative of the population at large.

2) Most would use a much different tone if these discussions took place face-to-face. When I post, I try (without always succeeding) to write as though I was speaking directly to the audience.

12. Excellent advice ...

... I'd also read somewhere that tone could be more easily kept in check if one imagined that they were writing a message to their mother.
