Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sun Feb 10, 2013, 06:03 PM

Sure sign DU has changed:

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by PeaceNikki (a host of the General Discussion forum).

the tag is now REQUIRED no matter how over-the-top the satire.

No wonder Bob Boudelang is MIA. Not nearly as funny if you have to tag every line.

13. The real answer

Click on the "smilies" button just above your typing and then the "..." button at the end of the group.
