Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Nov 22, 2012, 11:43 PM

 

What a strange and wonderful forum here in GD.

Mostly political with a liberal view, odd news, the occasional animal story, stories of personal crisis and triumph...

What a wonderful haven for someone like me.

I don't know anywhere on the Internet that comes even close to this and the camaraderie that is offered here.

2. It is nice to have a place to chat with people who mostly think like you

The ignore button does come in handy sometimes though.

5. It's kept me interested and coming back for years

And I'm the kind of person who gets bored with things that don't change pretty regularly. It's been a true privilege to get so much diversity in opinions and true wisdom and great stories and breaking news and humor and knowledge, but even better not just to be a taker here, but a giver too. For the first time in my life I feel at home here.

6. Hang out in The Lounge for a while. We're much weirder there.

7. G.D. is a great place to start

then an occassional foray into LBN, the Lounge, Politics.

Funny thing is, most times it all ends up in General Discussion .

I love this place
