100. Your post was alerted.

You survived the alert, but the objection was to your use of the term "Loony Tunes" to describe mentally ill people.

Perhaps you might want to edit that. We generally don't go for that kind of disparaging commentary against a group of people who are suffering an illness.

REASON FOR ALERT

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

ALERTER'S COMMENTS

OP uses "Looney Tunes" and other insults to describe the mentally ill.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Mon Oct 5, 2015, 05:52 PM, and the Jury voted 1-6 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: I fail to see the problem. Leave Bluejazz
Juror #3 voted to HIDE IT
Explanation: Troll needs a hide.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: considering the bigotry allowed to stand here (based on region, age, etc) this is mild - be brave and confront the poster if it upsets you - don't use a jury to do what you want to avoid
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: No explanation given
Juror #7 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE
Explanation: The term is inelegant but doesn't rise to the HIDE level. I would suggest, alerter, that you educate this newcomer, who is plainly in favor of gun control, which is a Democratic Party value, on the gentle art of polite discourse. Ask for an edit if the term truly offends you--if the poster is respectful, they will likely comply.

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.
