44. It's a dead horse, beating it here wont change a thing

The media outlets never really invested in it, of course some argue here that is because they are all in the tank for Romeny. I just think it was a weak tactic, we need to hammer economy, economy, economy, but instead we are talking about genitals. You think the average voter who wil come out in November knows or gives a care about the latest vagina outrage? I doubt it.

We know the reality is that many are not, so the message is ineffective when all is said and done. November is not that far away, war on women will not win it.

may be more informed about it than you think, as well as those without vaginas who know that this affects them too. Yes, hammer economy, no one said "war on women will win it." But it's part of the whole campaign, part of attacks on fellow citizens, education, pensions, workers, privacy, and who really will work for the Amercian people.

16. perhaps we need a GDP

although as I remember it GD was sorta over-run by primary threads until some people objected and all the primary stuff was moved to GDP (and I followed it).

GD has sorta always followed the TV. Thus if the M$M features a bunch of stories about Israel, the GD would have a flame war about Israel. If the M$M features a bunch of stories about Terry Schiavo, then GD would have a flame war about Schiavo. And so on.

It does seem like we broke that pattern. We have not had a good flame war in GD ever since we went to DU3. Did we leave a bunch of flame-warriors in DU2? Is it the new jury system discouraging flame wars? Was it the flame wars that made this place lively?

It is hard for me to put my finger on it, but something DOES seem lacking nowadays in GD. It may be just the usual pining for the glory days of memory. But it seems like we have definitely lost some good writers with the absence of H2Oman, Time For Change, and MadFloridian.

Of course, some of the livliness of 2009-2011 was of the theme "Obama sucks" and much of that seems to have been squelched (and rightly so) for the election season. Still, there is more hatred/fear of Romney than there is excitement about Obama. And much of the attacks on Romney lack eloquence or substance and are just of the "God, I hate Romney, he's such a liar and a doodyhead. How can anybody who is not insane possibly vote for him?" Something which has a .000004% chance of ever swaying an undecided voter.

But of course, it is not like I am doing any better. It's hard for me to get excited about a choice between Ryan and Simpson-Bowles, and between "all of the Bush tax cuts extended" or the new Democratic position "99.6% of the Bush tax cuts extended". To bring back an old complaint - a .4% difference is NOT "change you can believe in". It's a major betrayal, and I happen to be quite pissed off about it.

It's still frivolous, but will probably not be as prone to causing asphyxiation from pearls being clutched too tightly.

Do try to work on that walking and chewing gum thing anyway, won't you?

Also... Math. Eight threads on GD does not equal "covering." Only three show up in "latest." it's not like mice; if you see one, there's not more hiding in the wall. if you see one - or eight - then that's how many there are.

DU is what one makes of it. If they hide threads, no more porn! Magic, I know!

81. not to mention the "I can't support Obama because he didn't do this one thing I care about" threads.

Or my fave, "my "friends" say that they can't support Obama this time because he didn't do this thing they wanted."

Those are becoming WAY too common to be real, frankly. For anyone who has been here since the beginning, they know that the majority of those are fakes. They are trying to psych op you into thinking that the other progressives and dems don't support Obama...

I think that things will gel soon enough, as at least we didn't have a nasty primary season this time. But yeah.. let's get it together here!!! Republicans suck, but they sure rally around their lame candidate!!!

83. Ya know what's REALLY annoying? People posting stuff in GD that really belongs in Meta.

The Statement of Purpose for the General Discussion forum says:

Discuss politics, issues, and current events. No posts about Israel/Palestine, religion, guns, showbiz, or sports unless there is really big news. No conspiracy theories. No whining about DU.


You are clearly whining about DU. As a GD host it would be my perogative to lock your OP for being off-topic. Only I don't feel that I can do that at this point, since so many DUers have gotten involved in this discussion, and one of our other directives from the Admins is to not lock OPs when there's an active discussion going on.

I volunteered to be a host because I want to help to make DU not suck, but off-topic OPs such as yours aren't helpful. I will echo what some others in this thread have said: you have the power to hide the threads you don't like. General Discussion covers a lot of ground. Hiding the threads that don't interest you or offend you lets you tailor your experience of GD to your personal specifications.

Please, next time you want to complain about DU, post it in Meta.

Thank you,
sw
GD host
