1. No. I live for the light blue horizontal bars calling me in and enjoy writing opinions:

Results of my last stint:

At Thu Apr 5, 2012, 11:53 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

You should acknowledge why it's happening, though.

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:

hate speech

'the plague that is the parasite of the European descended developed world war mongering person'

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Fri Apr 6, 2012, 12:09 AM, and the Jury voted 1-5 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I do not agree with the poster, think he does verge on hate speach, although not in the quote cited in the alert, but in "How the fuck could anyone "get along" if the very people who have the most privilege on the planet don't recognize it and exploit it to their own ends, because, why not?" If the people with the most privilege don't recognize how can they be exploiting it? I got the feeling this was a feeling addressed to all "white people" DU'ers included, anyway, don't think this is a reason to pull the post. Hope the poster realizes that most white DU'ers are trying hard NOT to exploit our 'advantage', we champion for justice for all.
Juror #2 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: My ancestors were parasitic war mongering Europeans, I am a white male, and I approve of joshcryer's statement.
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: Stupid remark, but not "hate speech."
Juror #5 voted to HIDE IT and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: NYC_SKP has read this reply, in context, and doesn't see a violation. The topic is very sensitive but it's a very important conversation to pursue. Personally, I think we all need to be careful not to fall into the trap that the PTB love to see us fall into: fighting among ourselves. White people are, generally, privileged, but less so if they're unattractive and obese. We are all different! So why argue about it? Well, because we're entitled to, we need to, we are finding ourselves, so let the discussion carry on!

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

8. I don't even mind the frivolous alerts

Why, oh why, do people in H&M-d complain about the jury system so much? I was so glad when Skinner made his post about what to do to make improvements and it was to do nothing at all

10. I like the ceremonial clothes you wear when called to duty.

It looks very reassuring to those whose posts are being judged.

19. Yes.

 

When a jury told me that a picture of a naked guy with a helmet on the head of his boner to just hide it and STFU, I opted out of ever serving on a jury. The hive mind is just skeevy.

20. I like the coffee and donuts

we get in the jury room. They always seem to have the chocolate sprinkles - my fave!

21. Those aren't chocolate sprinkles.

They're dead ants that got stuck on the glazed donuts.


Don't even ask about what's actually in the creme sticks.
