5. Kicking with the results of the jury on this post...

At Mon Feb 25, 2013, 09:33 AM an alert was sent on the following post:

My radio show is now available in video starting today. Here is today's show...
http://www.democraticunderground.com/10022423788

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

I understand this is going to be a tough call. However Mr. Leser is essentially spamming the board with promotions for his radio show, and video appearances. Since his radio show and web site are supported by commercial advertisements, he is essentially spamming this board to make money. It is no different that Chris Matthews, Rachel Maddow, or any other talk show host coming on this board and trying to promote their respective shows. I think these self promoting posts need to be deleted, and the admins have a talk with Mr. Leser about not doing this in the future. Having a link in the sig line is one thing, posting threads and kicking them to keep them in view is an entirely different matter.

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Mon Feb 25, 2013, 09:44 AM, and the Jury voted 0-6 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: This is a ridiculous alert. Where is the poster violating the TOS? So what if he kicked his own OP? Half of the valuable posts on DU need to be self-kicked to keep them from sinking. Personally, I don't know if his show merits my interest, as many times I don't agree with the poster. That doesn't mean Mr. Leser doesn't have a right to be heard, however.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Stevenleser is one of our good guys
I have no problem with this. I say leave it
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Let the admins deal with it if they see fit.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: LOL!
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I get what the alerter is saying but I think perhaps instead of hiding this post the alerter should just sent admin an email.


on the alert.

Sid

6. LOL, I noticed I had a response to this OP from "ignored". I was almost curious what they had to say

In the dozens of responses, OPs and other things I post each week, two to three OPs a week are about my show. I was a member of DU for years before I had a show. The show is a political show that is completely in line with the general bent of the site.

There are at least four other folks who have political media gigs that post information about the stuff they are doing here on DU. I am not going to name them because they dont deserve negative attention anymore than I do in this case. I am willing to bet that the alerter has not gone after them.

Obviously there are things going on in the alerter's life that cause them to be a very unhappy individual in general and it makes them upset to see someone else either happy or doing well. I hope alerter deals with those things instead of focusing on me.
