Response to Mosby (Reply #72)

Fri Dec 1, 2017, 03:22 PM

76. Yep, seems most of the trolls who used to push the "apartheid" propaganda line are over at JPR now

bashing the Democratic party as worse than the Republicans and promoting their Trotskyite splinter groups that they never mentioned when they were here.

But while that's one easily identifiable chunk, the community that existed here before the election is clearly gone. I think it had more to do with the Admins' tolerance of trolls and disruptors who posed as Hilary supporters just to provoke division and animosity, and the elimination of community involvement through the jury system and Meta forum. They may have gotten rough at times, but they got everyone involved in the process and led to an open discussion of the problems that arose. Now posts just disappear with no explanation or discussion, and even those who participate in the new juries aren't told what most of the alerts are really about or even what the results are. That may have had the intended effect of shutting down personal attacks and bickering, but its also suppressed the basic debate and argument that I thought was DU's primary purpose and discouraged participation in general.
