Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Nov 29, 2012, 08:04 PM

DU is the single most valuable information source on the planet.

Thought I'd just say that for my post number 1,000. You people are amazing; you are the hope of the planet. Just sayin'.

2. Best I have found

The fact that it is democratic and every one here starts out on a fairly even field, makes for the flow of knowledge to be unique in the world.

What's next?

6. A day without DU is like sensory deprivation. It's my homepage on every device.

It's been that way for a decade, and will continue as long as DU and I are around.

10. DU and The Daily Show with Jon Stewart kept me sane

during the bleak years of the George W. Bush disaster.

13. I think so too

Fastest, most unbiased, news ever. I mean that because you have to move pretty far left just to get to the middle any more.

18. Maybe, but not as much as it used to be.

As I remember, almost every post had a link to back up their positioning. When I would mention DU to anyone else, their first response was "they have a lot of links".

Now, I don't want to stifle creative argument, but I would prefer to see it based in fact rather than pure speculation.

DU is still one of the best forums, but I would wish that more of the posters would use sources to support their claims. In many cases, those sources are unreliable, which would lead me to believe that is why they are not used in the first place.

I am also concerned with those who use facts, but twist them to conform to their personal conclusions, which seldom benefit the Whole.
