Happy Holidays from Democratic Underground



During the Holiday Season we make time for our family and friends, traveling across town, across the country, or around the world to visit with the people we care about.

Many of us consider the members of this online community to be our friends. Even though we may not have met in "real life," our fellow DUers are as much a part of our lives as our neighbors, co-workers, and even some of our friends and family. And so, this Holiday Season the DU Administrators want to take a moment to express our gratitude to all of you, our online virtual family.

2011 has been an extraordinary year for Democratic Underground. In January we celebrated 10 years online. We have been engaged in a high-profile legal fight, where we (with the help of EFF) helped stop a predatory copyright troll who has been harassing hundreds of websites with bogus lawsuits. And in December we unveiled an enormous overhaul of our website which we've been working on for well over a year. Through it all, you helped this community grow and thrive -- by visiting, by posting, by providing financial help, and by accepting big software changes with patience and good nature. We are extremely grateful.

Thanks to your support, this community is stronger than it as ever been. We have an amazing community of people, and we finally have the software you deserve. 2012 is a presidential election year, and we believe everything is in place so it will be our best year yet.

Happy Holidays. And thank you.

To the DU Administrators...thank you for this wonderful forum...I turn to it for not only political news, but first for late breaking news, or when I need a laugh...the DU Lounge is the place to be. We might fuss and bicker...but that's what families do...but we all know we have a place to come to when we need it.

Thanks and here is to a fantastic 2012!

Thank you to all the administors for this great site.
Happy Holidays to you all as well.

I've had bad/sad experiences with some of my favorite sites upgrading and becoming inaccessible from work. I can't do "everything" from work, now, but I find it so much more inviting, now.

but yeah, these kids got a double dose of cute. He must have a stunning wife, who married him for the millions of dollars he makes here (kidding. I suspect they probably only make a tenth of what they deserve and put in 10 times the hours that they should).

36. As I have speculated before...

I believe the Du will be noted in history books as a social phenomena.
A group of like minded souls who found each other on the "internets,"
and together, as a community, archived history and hope.
Thank you for being our anchor in a what can only be described
as the storm of all history.

119. Um, our celebration was on the actual solstice

Yeah, yeah, I know they stole Christmas from the Pagans but they didn't actually get the date right, so I call it a wash. Besides, my holiday fun comes from explaining what the tree and the lights and the yuletide log actually symbolize. It's almost as fun as Easter. The other thing I do is work on Christmas so that someone who wouldn't otherwise get their holiday off, does. Nightshifter nurse here.

Anyway, here's your pentagram and a kick butt song and The Christians and the Pagans by Dar Williams. If you like it, you will probably like everything bu her and I highly recommend buying just about every song she has made.

65. Happy Holidays Admins!

I've been here since 2001 and have no idea what I'd have done without DU.

I hope you guys get some well-deserved time with your families this season. Your decade+ of hard work has made this the best Democratic website on the intertubes.

66. Merry Christmas all

Skinner, I will never forget on Christmas Eve I couldn't sign on for some reason and was dying to say Merry Christmas to the then Marketeers (this was some years ago, it was a different bunch then). I will never forget your efforts to work that out, on Christmas eve! Mighty nice of you.

Holiday cheers to all,
Julie

Seriously, can't tell you how much this site has meant to me and my sanity.

Let us hope 2012 is a far, far better year than we have known before. And as another Dickens character said, "God Bless Us Every One"!

Peace.

thank you all for making this site possible. it's become an import news center, as well as a place for me to educate myself, and be able to share that knowledge with my less politically oriented family and friends. may there be many more holidays to celebrate.
