4. That's what happens when the new boss takes over

All the former radicals then become supporters of the status quo.

It's been an interesting process to watch up close and personal.

6. Hey, we have nearly 200,000 members here on DU.

With that large a population, we all don't come from the same cookie cutter. Radical, liberal, moderate, LGBT, straight, male, female, etc.

Whatever.

Really, wtf, man? Our strength lies precisely in our diversity.

If you want conformity, go join the Freepers.

8. the "Underground" part has been a misnomer for many years

If you are a bit "too" underground you will get flamed and booted.

It used to piss me off, but after 11 years I'm used to it. I've gotten used to so much worse here in the US, behind the Invisible Iron Curtain.

30. Yeah it's kind of weird, but totally expected.......

DU got pretty popular as a site for real news about the Wisconsin demonstrations and then about Occupy. Of course it was the ANTI establishment types that fueled the posts and news that CAUSED the popularity of DU. Nevertheless, when it began to get too popular a lot of the "left" (left of Reagan-barely) types decided this was the place to be. Also the establishment ALWAYS tries to co-opt the "underground" and tame it so, VOILA! Here they are.

31. Yep, the name "underground" is something of a misnomer.

This is not some kind of fringe radical leftist community. The fact that DUers are permitted to support every one of President Obama's policies attests to that.
