In a sincere effort to understand the rules of DU, let me make sure I got this right

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by Autumn (a host of the Bernie Sanders group).

Rule #1. It is not okay to imply that a contender is a c***

but

Rule #2. It is okay to imply that an opponent is a racist.

Am I beginning to understand the lay of the land around here?

1. I would say that you are correct.

2. Personally

 

I don't see how you can compare those two words. One is
a filthy, derogatory name for a woman and the other is a
description of someone who has a bias against a certain race.

They are NOT the same. in my view. The first is unforgivable.

3. I believe it should go without saying

that to imply that a person is a c*** is NOT ok. I am surprised you have to ask.

5. You are not a supporter of Bernie Sanders so your post is

inappropriate in this group.

Or a cheerleading group?

4. Apparently.

Also any questions about a contenders religious practice/bible study is a smear, and anyone who questions whether Hillary is our best candidate is misogynistic by default.

6. Here are the answers to your questions

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=termsofservice

and this is the SOP for the Bernie Sanders group.

http://www.democraticunderground.com/12805067

The mission of the Bernie Sanders Group is to discuss information and news about the life, career, accomplishments, and current campaign for the Democratic Party's Nomination in 2016 of Bernie Sanders. The Bernie Sanders Group will provide a haven for those members of Democratic Underground who support the Senator Sanders and his policies; to discuss his policy positions, speeches, interviews, and other public appearances; to discuss Senator Sanders 2016 Democratic nomination campaign; and to discuss the causes which Senator Sanders has championed.

The Bernie Sanders Group is not a forum. This group serves as safe haven for members who share similar interests and viewpoints. Individuals who post messages contrary to this group's stated purpose can be excluded from posting, these decisions will be made by the current group hosts.



As you can see this is not the place for your OP. You now have the answer so please delete your OP . Let's use this group to support each other and Bernie

10. It has to do with what is allowed to be implied around here.

So, yes. It was a HUGE discussion around here last week or am I wrong about that?

16. We are letting ourselves get pulled off topic

This week it is the unfortunate banning of a long-time poster.

Last week it was getting pulled into the phony racial charges.

We need to get back to supporting our candidate. Write letters to Skinner about reinstating NYC and let's stop getting pulled into long threads with trolls.
