Hello - and apologies for removed post

My very first post here at DU was hidden from the Video forum today. I do not want to link the video twice obviously, but you can find it on YouTube by searching for the title "13-Year-Old Jenny Gives Report Cards to Obama and Romney". I would like to apologize first and foremost. It was not my intent to "troll" (please see further down this post for a detailed explanation). I had legitimate questions about the video I posted.

These are the reasons given for the decision by jury:


-------

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See Community Standards.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

Pro Romney anti-Obama horseshit.

JURY RESULTS

A randomly-selected Jury of DU members completed their review of this alert at Sun Oct 28, 2012, 11:26 AM, and voted 6-0 to HIDE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT and said: Agree. Pro rmoney crap. This belongs on FR.
Juror #4 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: Obvious troll is obvious. Hide, and MIRT them.
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given

-------


I couldn't agree more that the video I posted is "pro-Romney crap / horseshit" -- that's exactly why I posted it.

My post started off with the caption:
Would love to see exposť of this video due to its script, production quality, etc. - hard to take it at face-value:


I am a Democrat / vocal Obama supporter online. I am also a professional photographer and editor at a major magazine publication. I believe this video is a "plant" and a fake. I was wanting it to be viewed / investigated to find out where it came from - and who is really behind it.

The production value, lighting, and script seem highly advanced to just be some video a 13-year old kid slapped up on YouTube.

I realize if it was a 6-0 decision to yank the clip, obviously jurors either did not read my intro-note and based the removal by the video alone -- or still felt it needed to be removed for whatever reasons, and that's fine. Especially with a 6-0 decision. I have no choice but to respect that.

But just because someone posts something perceived as pro-Romney, doesn't mean the actual POST is pro-Romney. I hope when voting people will take that into account in the future.

I truly want the video debunked - like, yesterday - because it is flooding my inbox.

Thank you for your time! And once again my apologies for a less than graceful entrance...

1. Welcome to DU shutterblog.

Thanks for the additional background and clarification. I did get what you were trying to do in your first post. Sometimes the message gets obscured when the subject material is controversial. Don't let it bother you.

Glad you're here, and hope you enjoy your DU experience!

2. Thank you so much!

I kind of feel like I walked in with toilet paper on my shoe. I promise trolling was not my intent! (I've owned and moderated too many forums online over the years to go that route...)

4. Welcome to DU, shutterblog.

People are understandably a little jumpy right now and I am not surprised they hid your post. I guess you learned the hard way that you have to be pretty explicit when posting things that appear to come from the Republicans.

7. Welcome to DU, shutterblog.

He's just as cute as the dickens!

You look pretty good yourself...

Sorry things got off to a rough start for you here at DU. If you decide to stay, I guarantee it will get better. I joined just after September 11th, 2001, an awful time. And DU helped me keep my sanity.

If you just want to hang out with liberals, but not talk politics, the Lounge is the best place. Enjoy...

8. Thank you - would love to stay!

After a week with my mom visiting here (she lives in rural Oklahoma - should be all I have to say ), I need a place like this desperately!

Thanks again for the welcome everyone!
